This may be harder to do in EGit than it should be.  Setup a fetch
from Gerrit's URL, but in the fetch refspecs you need to copy
refs/changes/55/2155/7 into some local branch on your repository (e.g.
refs/remotes/gerrit/2155).  After that is fetched, do a reset hard to
that commit.

Gerrit has some of these actions as C Git command lines you can copy
and paste, on the start of those lines you can get the URL and the
refs/changes/... string for the given patch set you are interested in.
 Since these sorts of lines are so common in the Git world, it might
help if EGit had a "Pull" dialog that just accepted a "git pull URL
REF" syntax and parsed it all for you.  Sadly, I don't think we have
that yet.
