Food is amazing, the wine list is wide, having a dinner here is a good culinary experience. On the contrary, many of the staff is least polite and ignorant and get very cranky and offended if you remind them you ordered a steak, not a...More

The gathering is a one of a kind restaurant in Gemmayze, nestled between few old authentic Lebanese houses. The food is amazing , the service is impeccable and best is when the weather is good to sit in the garden .

Seriously do not go there for food experience. They laugh in your face, proposing you ridiculous portions of food for very high prices. Plates are very average and portion tiny. Service is slow and staff un experienced, ready to tell you anything to sell!!
