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.

The California scene is a world unto itself for some of us East-coasters. And Berkeley always lives up to its post-hippie, post-yuppie, and yet still washed in that find-yourself-and-protest-all chic. The Gather is a gathering well for the well-heeled --the rustic vibe betrayed by the spotless wine glasses and high end pizzas, sandwiches and a soup or two. All of... More

This place has lots of nice options but unfortunately no steak. I ended up just getting the Kale salad which was very good. It looked like the only red meat option was a hamburger.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Gather today. Upon entering the restaurant we were immediately greeted and asked if would like to eat inside or out. With the perfect weather we selected the patio. Our server Kelley immediately greeted us and suggested beverages and inquired if we would like water. We both selected an IPA, served in a chilled glass... More

This place is rather inconsistent. I was here for lunch- the menu is rather sparse, which I often appreciate, however many of the dishes were not great. The mushroom ragout with polenta is very small, and hardly has any flavor. The kale salad is watery, and very tough to chew on. The pizzas are good, the spicy tomato is better... More

Service was fine, but portions were skimpy (postage stamp sized cheese portions) and overpriced. Food not particularly flavorful.

The menu is very limited and tries to be too quirky, resulting in many dishes that have at least one ingredient you might not want (eg liver mousse, or mushroom sauce in with your mussels). Pizza was good but not outstanding. No red meat options. Mint ice cream was very tasty and the highlight.

Thank Lilikoi77
