The Gathering used to be one of my favourite places to visit whenever in Lebanon. Unfortunately the last time we went was during our Christmas vacation. We went on a Friday night not sure we were going to find a seat. There was plenty of availability. The ambiance was rather quiet. We were in the bar area. The service was... More

This place deserves an excellent rating because of the outdoors seating area (rare in Beirut) and a phenomenal wine list. Large choice of items on the food menu. Steaks are great, and so are the ravioli, pizza and gnocchi, to name but a few. A place to be visited over and over again.

I've been to The Gathering several times and I have never once been disappointed. The risotto, the sandwiches and the pizzas are all favorites of mine and my family. But the risotto is always a must whenever we go! The venue itself is of a romantic setting outside and an intimate cozy one when inside.

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!!

This was going to be last last dinner in Beirut after having spent an amazing five days there. I chose this place and my daughters were pleasantly surprised when we got there. Its hard to describe how nice the layout of this place is. They certainly got lucky with finding a location like this. Service was friendly and the food... More

A nice place where you can join good food with nice glass of wine. You can select between different cuisine from italian, to steakhouse, to cheese and wine. The sitting area outside let you feel relaxed, the staff is welcoming and the wine selection is of great choice

Although the space is really nice spacious chill and comfortable this place remains very expensive and over priced last. Last time i visited we ordered one appetizer for more than 15 dollars the appetizer was cheese rolls in some pitas bread (the exact same sandwich is sold for 1 dollar in a normal shop) that was extremely irritating for me...

This place is lovely. Out in a cobblestone outdoor patio are (BE WARNED LADIES--IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO WALK ON THESE STONES IN STILETTO HEELS--I SAW WOMEN FALL DOWN) it is quaint, cute, loads of atmosphere. It is overpriced as is every nice restaurant in Beirut. The food tasted fresh and was very well prepared. Unique dishes not found elsewhere in... More
