I went for lunch. I had the 'field greens salad', 'spicy tomato pizza', and 'chocolate torte'. The food was really good. There are several vegetarian options on the menu. The service was good too.

I loved the casual, earthy interior. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. We were there with out teenagers and everyone was happy with their food. We started with the beef tartar which was delicious. The kale salad was great, but my little gem salad dressing was a bit bland. The salt and pepper margarita was outstanding. (if you... More

This is not the first time we visit this place. Always offering a great choice of fresh salads with organic type of ingredients . However, appetizers are on the small site despite the high prices. Wine list needs improvement due to a huge mark up for a local wines. There is No bottle of wine under $35. Need more affordable... More

This restaurant has some interesting choices, but don't select the kale salad. I could not cut the leaves even with a sharp knife. I told the waiter the salad was not edible and he didn't seem to care. I ate less than half the salad but had to pay for it. Service was mediocre

Knowledgeable attentive staff that took time to explain a lot of the offerings and entrees to us. We ordered entrees, but also ordered a pizza for the table as we saw that every table was ordering one. Really great rustic pizza and ingredients. Some of the sides were covered in sauces that seemed a bit heavy, but it could be... More

I first went to Gather when it opened some years back. Nice space, good cocktails and we had a nice meal with some shared small plates. I had a nice pizza and salad with girlfriends another time. But, and I am sad to say, the other four visits have been kind of a bust. While it is a much needed... More

Before my buddies wedding we came here from breakfast. Overall the food was good and the price wasn't too bad. I had the pancakes which delivered. We sat outside which had heaters to keep us warm. The service was a bit slow. There were about 5 tables outside and one guy working them all. Besides that everything else was good.

If you are vegan or vegetarian then this restaurant is well worth a visit. My chick pea dish was delicious although the salad on my cheese board was well past it's prime. The meals we ordered were quite small although we noticed the burger and salad dishes others had were quite large. Both of us thought that while our meals... More

We went to gather because of the reviews and we're not let down. Everything that was present in front of us was delicious. Service was attentive and on point. The wine list was solid. We had the kale salad and tuna crudo app. For dinner we had the halibut, chicken and the chickpea panisse, which was a fave for me.... More
