Yummy healthy food, highly creative

Yummy plates to share with friends. Very nice combinations of flavors. A little bit pricey, but the quality is there.

cozy restaurant with something for everyone: carnivore, vegetarian or gluten free mess, like myself. Presentation is spectacular. Chairs are mildly uncomfortable, but heaven is probably run by Catholic nuns that want you to sit up straight.

We went for lunch after touring the David Bower Center right around the corner. There were 16 of us so they were quick to arrange two tables of eight next to each other so we could all be together. The food is healthy and tasty. Service was good and atmosphere fine. I would go back.

Perhaps one of the most artisan pizza's available in Berkeley-and that's saying a lot. The brussell spouts are to die for!

I was impressed with Gather the first time I went, not too long after the restaurant opened. That visit was for dinner. I returned a few times for dinner and lunch, but it had been a couple of years, until a friend recently took me there for my birthday. Like other reviewers, I miss the vegan charcuterie plate. It is... More

Came here for a late dinner on a Tuesday. We started with marinated olives which were very nice. $6 for about 8-10 olives. Next we had arugula salad with lemon cucumbers and peach "slices" (which were overripe and mushy). Maybe 4 small slices of peach with a mound of very spicy arugula. The cucumber that I got was rather mushy... More

A very Berkeley restaurant. We went for lunch and, because we were in Berkeley, I had the kale salad. Expensive for lunch but good food.

Went for lunch. Had the kale salad and the basic pizza. Both were quite ordinary; I've had better of each many many times. The place is lovely, but if my meal was indicative of their overall quality, they have work to do to start making special meals.

My friends have been raving about Gather's vegan pizza for quite a while so I had to try it. Delicious! Also the cashew sauce was amazing.

We stopped in for dinner, prior to attending Berkeley Rep. We ate here several years ago and had good memories of the food. Maybe it was an off night but my burger was awful. I am quite sure it had been prepared some time before and then put in the microwave to heat up. The fries were equally bad --... More
