Gather is across the road from UC Berkeley and provides simple tasty food, reasonably priced and served well. It has an extensive drinks menu although it could include a few more appetisers. I had a pizza which is hard to go wrong however that was because none of the Mains appealed so perhaps a review to include some red meat... More

We haven't eaten here in a while but the times we have dined here were memorable! The service was very good. I remember one time our friends wanted to know where the lamb was from, and the owner came over with the information. Another time, our pizza was accidentally knocked over. In a slit second, people were there to clean... More

This is one of my local favorites for every occasion. They have a very eclectic menu based on local and sustainable ingredients, which means the menu changes seasonally and although they have a few regulars, the details might change (the dressing on salads, the side dishes, the veggies they pickle...). For date nights, they have amazing cocktails and we order... More

I was brought here for a business dinner. We shared a pizza, as a starter, that was totally disappointing (but I'm italian, so my expectation are always beyond reasonability when talking of pizza...). A good choice, and quality, of drinks to start your meal. The main courses are good, in quality as in taste, but frankly the size of dishes... More

My daughter and I tried Gather as a gluten free, close to UC Berekely Greek theatre restaurant. We were not disappointed. Everything we had was delicious. My adult aged daughter said that it was the best meal she has had at a restaurant. We shared the chicken and the Antipasta. I had the sparkling wine and she had a non-alcoholic... More

There were 9 of us for dinner, getting together with cousins who were all staying in Berkeley so Gather was the selected dinner location. I don't believe anyone wants to write an uncomplimentary review. However, our experience was really surprising. We were all seated, talking, laughing and wanting beverages. A waiter approached our table and just didn't seem to be... More

My wife tried the pizza, it was burnish on the bottom and the topping were sparse and tasteless. The service was fine if you wish to be condescended upon. Would we go back, not even if someone else was paying.

We came for lunch but were given the brunch menu. It's a very limited menu and some pizzas. Husband had the pancakes. Nothing special, just two sad slivers of pear and very little maple sirop. I had the focacia croque which was okay.

Three of us dined here prior to an event. The server forgot our wine orders to start. Then when we asked for the GF option for the salumi (the menu had the asterisk that said GF option available) he said that this meant they remove the GF - in this case the bread. They do not offer gluten free bread... More

We ended up here accidentally as my friend who lives here needed a phone cord from the nearby Sprint store. I saw Gather and thought I'd heard of it. She said it was good so we decided to stay in the neighborhood and eat here. I had to circle twice to find a parking spot as it is quite near... More
