Loved the food and the service was very attentive. They made great recommendations. The price was a little high (in accordance with the "organic trend" and all, so no surprise there). Made me discover (and love) kale!

I was here twice by myself in the past week, once for breakfast and once for dinner. The food was great with an interesting mix of flavors. The portions were perfect and the food wasn't overly rich. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was easy. I loved the food. The prices are fair. I'll go back next time... More

Our son and his girlfriend couldn't wait to bring us to Gather when we visited Berkeley from the East. We had reservations on a busy Sunday evening and were shown to our table right away. I love a large space with a feeling both rustic and very modern. The Brussels sprouts dish is excellent, so are the thin crust pizzas.... More

Gather is pricey but generally worth it. Varied menu with unusual combinations. Everything is fresh and local. Also an excellent cocktail bar with good house drinks.

My general impression is that Gather is too expensive and has little to offer besides the fact that it's a trendy place with upscale people. However, that should be no reason to charge $25 for microwave pizza. They should offer quality food for this price. I do not intend to come back.

The venue is nicely presented, with a somewhat rustic feel. The food was tasty, although what I had (a burger) was a little conventional. The service was friendly but a little confused, with some incorrect items coming to our table.

We met our son and daughter-in-law at this wonderful bar/grill/bistro on the edge of the UC Berkeley Campus, for an early dinner. The food is always fresh, mostly local with a great range of omnivore/vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free, etc. selections. Everything was perfectly prepared; we were not rushed, and the service was very attentive. The selections are very creative but not pretentious and... More

Wanted something nice, casual, tasty, handy, friendly, trendy, healthy, not too spendy. Wanted it to be walking distance from UC and no long lines. Found it.

We dropped in for lunch. I have heard good things about this restaurant. We were not disappointed. Menu was limited. Both sandwiches we had, one grilled cheese and the other an open tuna, were excellent. Hear the pizzas are great too. Attentive service added to experience.
