Contemporary Italian
Gather opened in September 2018 and is located at the base of the innovation Center. Gather is a neighbourhood Korean Italian restaurant that draws from both owners Chef Sung Ji Park and Luigi Coccaro’s heritage. The food draws from Sung Ji Park’s traditional and, not-quite-traditional dishes he grew up eating with his family, while also paying tribute to his decade of culinary experience in fine Italian dining. Gather draws from both of Chef Sung Ji Park and Luigi Coccaro’s family connection as well, and was designed as a place where family, friends and colleagues are able to gather around a table, to share in a true culinary experience. The menu features a variety of small, medium and large plates that lends to sharing, as is customary in both Korean and Italian culture.

Table service begins at 3pm.

Amazing service, so very friendly right from the first smile from the host, and you know it’s a true smile when you can see it through a mask! Food is exquisite and flavorful! I even got a little side bench to put my hat on! 😃

We found this restaurant randomly while we were staying in downtown Kelowna and had the most amazing experience!

Location: the restaurant is very convenient to get to as it's right in the heart of downtown. It was walking distance from our airbnb

Ambiance: sophisticated, modern, open concept space. They have spaced out the desk for covid and it definitely does not feel cramped at all. Right off the bat we were greeted by the staff and given complimentary smoked sake shots, which was very much appreciated

Food: the dishes are a fushion of korean and italian. We ordered fried tofu with crispy quinoa, smoked slow cooked pork belly, and pork cutlet in pork jus gochujang reduction sauce. All the dishes tasted amazing and were presented beautifully! Extra mention for the tofu dish - the crispy quinoa definitely made it stand out. You can really taste the applewood smoke in the pork belly too. We were also surprised with the portion size considering the quality of the food and the price point. We were sad to be so full we didn't make it to dessert.

Staff: the service was amazing and the staff was very warm and welcoming. Our server was also very knowledgeable in explaining all the dishes.

We will definitely be coming back the next time we are in Kelowna!

Social distancing is perfect in this facility. The waitress was super great and went the extra mile and when our waitress wasn't available due to serving others, another employee stepped up and helped out. Really enjoyed the entire atmosphere. Thank u!!

Innovative, comfortable and delicious. Nice open space with plenty of room between tables. Great size menu with something for everyone. I had pork belly and my husband had gnocchi, both presented beautifully and full of flavour. Priced very reasonably. We will be back!

Can’t say enough about this place. The ambience was wonderful, service fantastic and the food was out of this world. I mentioned on Open Table that it was my wife’s birthday and without me asking; they brought out a dessert to celebrate! Can’t wait to go back. Thank you Gather!

I LOVE Gather. I’ve been a few times, and the experience is always amazing. It is a generally quiet spot (though it should be busier), they are very Covid careful and respectful, the decor is very cute and ambiance is so lovely and cozy, and the food is AMAZING-so delicious and beautifully presented. Great value for your money. The bibimbap bowl with tofu is my favourite dish. The service is so incredible every time I’ve been the servers are so kind and friendly and the chefs wave to you from the kitchen. I am a big fan and highly recommend!

Outstanding food and service
We made a reservation with the Opentable app. We walked in to a very interesting place. We were warmly greeted and given a choice of tables.
Soon after we were seated the hostess arrived at our table with a little tomato taster followed by an Applewood smoked shooter (sparkling cranberry for us non-drinkers), it was literally served in a cloud of Applewood smoke.
We started with the Patate Fritte wich was fantastic.
I hade the Samon Wasabi which was not like anything I have ever tasted and it was cooked perfectly. The veg was charred, tender, yet crisp. soo goooood!
My partner had the Sortrib Steak Tataki which she loved.
And I have to say it is some of the best service we have ever had and we eat out alot.
Thanks to the crew at the Gather for an amazing night.
