Gather Ratings and Reviews
Creative fresh menu with plenty of options to satisfy seafood lovers, meat lovers and veggie lovers. Creative fun cocktail menu. Vibrant atmosphere. Energetic volume level may be challenging for someone with hearing challenges as was the case with one in our party.
The grilled octopus was outstanding, the fish tacos were good but a bit bland, the spinach and artichoke pizza was a bit bland but a good portion, the chicken & waffle bites were exactly that–very small bites but delicious. The drinks and beer selection was good. Loved the atmosphere and decor. Great value for that location.
Gather is one of our family's favorite spots in all of Boston. the location is perfectly situated in seaport away from the tall buildings with unhindered views of the water across the lovely public green space. the decor is modern rustic with tall ceilings giving it a spacious feel. the service is always top notch with sincere waitstaff who are never pushy or overly chatty. our favorite dishes are off the brunch menu (some are offered at dinner too)-- chicken and waffle bites, duck tacos, steak and eggs, and the fluffer nutter French toast!! the chicken and waffle bites are perfect for sharing or even a great entree for kids. the duck tacos have a Korean flare with kimchee in them--sounds weird but so delicious if you like a spicy kick. the steak and eggs come with a hollandaise sauce that make it special. the fluffer nutter French toast is really rich and sweet but if you like peanut butter and marshmallows, it is so decadent and you can't stop eating it!
In my reservation I requested outdoor seating but we were originally sat inside. Service was slow. Our drinks stayed empty majority of the time we were there, including our water. I had the Eggs Florentine, the eggs were over cooked. Nice outdoor area, majority of the patio is not in direct sunlight - probably a good outdoor seating area when its really hot. The place has potential but they need more experienced staff.
Ordered the rabbit and was disappointed with how dry it was. The tartar for the fish and chips was also dry, but the fries were well-seasoned. I'd recommend going here for drinks and snacks-- the best part of this meal was the duck tacos and the blueberry mule was well-flavored.
This place is just ok. It's near the ICA which is nice and they have an outdoor dining section which is great in the summer. The staff is young and a bit inexperienced but super sweet. The food always lets me down though. Good ideas but not executed that well.
The food here was mediocre at best but I do give it points for ambiance as well as delicious cocktails. Shrimp appetizer was decent but it's deep fried which was not noted on the menu. Entrees were just average. Short rib gnocchi was just ehhh and my fiancé thought the duck was very average as well. Overall: not bad but definitely not worth what they are charging.
Hadn't been here for brunch yet--I've been for dinner and drinks and appies when the weather's nice because it's wonderful to sit outside. We were impressed, although the service was a bit slow (we waited for more than 20 minutes for a coffee). Bloody Mary could be a lot sexier and interesting (that's one of my yardsticks for measuring a good vs a great brunch!). I'd definitely go back, especially when the weather's better. My mate ordered chicken & waffles because he'd never had it before and really loved it--although we had to ask for maple syrup (should come with it). My market vegetable omelet was delicious (had to ask for hollandaise which made it ever better), and the potatoes were perfect.
Had good vibe & lots of potential but disappointing. Brought 2 0f 3 meals out, 1 was overcooked & brought back. 3rd came later. Forgot drink order. Very gracious & apologetic & bought the round of drinks & comp'ed the late dinner. Tasted fine, nothing special. Veggie sides were good.
Food and drink were un-even. Meat pie much too fatty (as mentioned by the carnivore of the crowd), Jambalaya a bit too salty but otherwise flavorful, salmon portion small with good accompaniments but felt overpriced for what was delivered. Cocktails okay- Old Fashioned was overly whiskeyed-- not enough bitters or citrus flavor. Very nice ambiance, and I'd return to have something simple from the menu.
Since we were there NYE I don't want to judge the noise level - it was loud but there was a band at District next door which is not the norm. This was my second time to Gather and the food is excellent - last time it was warm out and I had the lobster cobb and this time it was cold out and I had the venison (a little on the spicy side for me but delicious). The meat and vegetables were cooked nicely - sometimes restaurants get one or the other right but not both. Drinks were tasty but my friend thought they were not strong enough - stick to wine if you want a good buzz. The selection of local and New England beers is good if you like hoppy stuff (I do!)
$19 for a chicken cobb salad... c'mon. That's excessive. The chicken and waffles were horrible, waffles were way too sweet and the chicken was dry. There are much, much better spots on the waterfront than Gather. Dinner on a Friday night at 7:00 and there were about 4 couples in the entire place (including us).
We dined at Gather on Thanksgiving and opted for their holiday special. The food was excellent, portion sizes were just right for a holiday meal, and the service was attentive. Definitely interested in returning another time to try the regular menu which looked very enticing.
The photos on the website are misleading. They were so pixelated that what looked like chandeliers were actually bare light bulbs. The decor is industrial, floors concrete, small noisy place not suitable for a business dinner. There's some kind of pop up beer bar across the hall in semi-raw space and there's no door in between. It was full of loud people and the noise carried throughout. Not up to Open Table standards. We almost turned around when we arrived but we didn't have time to search for another place. Would have been happier if we had.
The place was conveniently located near the new convention center at the seaport. The food was average at best. Drinks were fine but with the other options in the area, this place needs to be better and bigger than the others. It is a very institutional atmosphere. Food was ok, not great.
If you're in the area and looking for a place to meet it's an ok location.
While modern and clean, the ambience is rather cold. Feels as if the place lacks warmth.
Food was ok, Beer election good. Food slightly overpriced. They don't validate garage parking, so unless you catch a space on the street, add 20-35$ to your meal.
The menu looked awesome. The execution left something to be desired. We had the duck tacos as an appetizer. They were fine but could have been made of any meat when drowned in that much sauce. The duck breast entree was over cooked and dry. I want to like this place and will try again
