Being a fan of Berkeley's Gather, I long looked forward to the SF outpost. Believe me, I wanted to love it.

I suppose it was slightly unfair to expect a Gather replica, but at least my unconscious seemed to!.

We found the menu difficult to decipher, even for a "food person," and the portions inhospitably small.

My Better Half was still hungry after we got home.,

As for flavors, they were hit and miss. My $23 "Brassicas" dish was more "interesting": than drop-dead delicious. Likewise a beet salad. Nothing really sang, though I think my BH enjoyed the tiny sardine dish and the meatballs, as far as they went., With 2 IPAs and one glass of rose, the bill came to $100 before tip, a bit too much for a neighborhood week night meal that left us slightly unsatisfied, both aesthetically and physically.

I'll probably give it another chance after it's been open longer, assuming I like what I see on the online menu.

PS Those of you fond of Gather's grass-fed burger will be disappointed--not on the menu.when we were there.
