Having recently moved to the area, we had been keen to try this place. We went as a family for an evening meal, and were impressed with the cozy atmosphere that greeted us as we entered the place. The menu looked good, the waitress was friendly, and the restaurant was certainly popular - almost full by 1730. What was astonishing... More

Hi Saaitken, Thanks very much for your feedback and review. I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and friendliness, but certainly dissapointed about your frustrating wait and lack of response. We filled up all at once on this evening and the challenge is feeding everyone all at the same time. That said, we should, and can do a better job communicating... More

Been to a few breakfasts, lunches and a dinner and dance. The ambience is terrific, warm, nicely designed. It feels homey, yet open and inviting to visit with other diners. The long table in the center is perfect for big groups. The owner makes his rounds and makes you feel at home. Food was great and I liked that they... More

I've been to Gather a few times.. I enjoy their menu and specials, always with a bit of a spin on dishes and new tastes. I was there last night for dinner, and previous experiences just repeat themselves. We waited a very long time for our food to arrive that was lukewarm at best; with concert tickets in Portland no...

This was an anniversary dinner for my wife and I. I ordered the Lentil Falafel Ciabatta and my wife had the summer Risotto. My Falafel came with home made fries, which were to die for. My wife asked if she could share my Ciabatta, so of course I had some of her Risotto. We could not decide which was the... More

I love this place which used to be a church or an old Masonic hall, in any event, a gathering place now, for exceptional breakfast, socializing, and some blue grass music. When I went with family, it was billed as a Sunday Bluegrass Brunch from a farm-fresh eatery. And it didn't disappoint. With specials posted on the board and a... More

A friend and I had such a lovely dinner here. The food was delicious. Honestly, go there for the Fried Brussel Sprouts appetizer alone. So freaking good. I had fish tacos and my friend had a unique dinner salad. Everything tasted really yummy and fresh, and the vibe of the place was fun.

Ordered Seafood stew, it was suppose to have seafood in it. A very little bit of labster claw is all I could find. The salt content was beyond belief (and I like salt). It had a piece of bread in the stew. I also ordered a salid which was plain lettice. It was a family gathering and 5 ordered pizza... More

I think this place was probably a Masonic Hall. There was a trio playing music (was it Bluegrass or Celtic or both) that added to the atmosphere and the kitchen is on the stage above the dining area giving one an appreciation of how fast restaurant staffs must work to keep up with a SRO crowd. I had cioppino, my... More

Not your everyday menu, which is a good thing! This is a special place to go when your desire is to have a lazy laid-back meal. The inside of this restaurant is unique with ultra high ceilings. The kitchen is exposed so that you may see what is going on but this also causes the table area to be warm.... More

Gather had me as soon as I walked in the door. Set in an old Masonic Hall, Gather has a very cool vibe with high ceilings and eclectic decor. The kitchen is open and set above the dining area on what must have been the old stage or pulpit, and it provides an interesting side attraction. I was hoping I... More
