I had had dinner there, but not lunch, but it seemed a great place to meet people coming to the Berkeley Campus. They appreciated the locally sourced ingredients and we all were able to find something we wanted on the menu. I hadn't had a fried egg sandwich for a very long time and this one was outstanding.

Loved the vibrant yet warm ambience here - the staff were wonderful, friendly and efficient. We shared a mix of different dishes and each one was better than the last! We found the pizza and chicken dish delicious, and the selection of wines was also extensive. A bit on the pricey side, but the great food made it all worthwhile. A wonderful place to come with friends for a fun evening out!

On the trendy side for decor and service.

Food is very good but gosh, we were told that there would be a salad with our sandwich but a few leaves do not a salad make! We found the skimpy salads puzzling because this place touts itself as a 'green' restaurant.

I am not sure I would revisit this restaurant.

I enjoyed the meal I had with a friend at Gather, but felt that it was somewhat overpriced, and a bit pretentious. The sandwiches and salads we ordered were tasty fresh and interesting but they just did not live up to our admittedly high expectations.The service was friendly and enthusiastic, and I would certainly give Gather another try.

The menu is very carefully developed and very well prepared. It's a Berkeley kind of experience, upscale place with a young professional type crowd, but menu is largely vegetarian/vegan.
