Gertrudes is a favorite of our family and we live in Northern VA! When my Mom was living, this was her favorite too. Five of us were there for lunch today. We all had crab cakes- Gerties or the Broadway - both were excellent. The service was very attentive too. We ate inside with great spacing between tables. Overall an excellent experience in these COVID times. I look forward to many more meals at this Baltimore institution.
My meal was listed as including an heirloom tomato salad, there were a few halved yellow and red cherry tomatoes on the plate.
The food is always good and the setting is wonderful. Love sitting outside spring, summer and fall.
Sat outside under umbrella.
Everything was GREAT! Usual Gertrude's standards. However, the crab quiche was only mediocre. Did we change chef???
Menu includes lots of interesting options. Everything was perfectly prepared and served. Lovely setting. Delightful music. Reasonable prices.
I’ve been to Gertrude’s several times and it is consistently amazing in every way: the food preparation and presentation, the service, the ambiance (the outdoor seating can’t be beat) all great this time and every time I go. Going on a Wednesday we got the additional bonus of the wine by the glass or bottle, half price! A great deal!
Everything was very nice. I would have liked to accumulated points for this reservation. There was a note that this reservation did not qualify. The Parking ticket should have been stamped for a lesser fee.
Fabulous Jazz brunch!! Could have sat in comfy rear booth all day! Breakfast items ordered were first rate... eggs Benedict w fried oysters (bit of shell in 2 oysters) and tofu scramble. Both came w great roasted potatoes and corn bread/biscuits. Mango mimosas delicious!! Prices very reasonable for quality. Great waiter too! Back soon... loved it!! Thanks for delicious sorbet scoop - birthday treat w candle for my friend.
The Sunday Jazz brunch was delightful! I had the Tilghman Island eggs and my friend the Country breakfast. Both were excellent. I loved that they gave us corn bread and a popover with jam and butter as a a part of the meal. Both indoor and outdoor seating have a nice ambiance.
The workers were great but the food and drinks weren’t very good.
Great food, service and ambiance. A must when visiting the museum!
Just a lovely serene place to have lunch. We sat outdoors under a canopy and had a delicious meal and were able to talk and visit without having to shout. I would highly recommend Gertrude's.
Very helpful and accommodating staff. We sat outside next to the reflecting pool & sculpture garden (not under the tent, which is where most of their outdoor seating is) and it was beautiful.
Great place to eat, the food was wonderful, everything was fresh and tasty.
John Shields does it right. Great menu, courteous staff and a lovely atmosphere.
The meal was fabulous! The best part was that the restaurant was in the museum, which we did not know. We had two treats, a great meal and great visit. I was once again reminded of the joy of exploring with OpenTable.
We sat outside, it was a beautiful day, the food and service was great. Would definitely come back.
Ronnie is the best and always does a
Great job taking care of us without it
seeming that he is hovering The soft shell crab was good.
Good food, nice ambience and beautiful outdoor surroundings.
An enjoyable cafe experience - I highly recommend it!
The outside patio, in the sculpture garden is such a perfect place for a special brunch. Loved it. Not cheap but definitely worth it.
The outdoor area is lovely.
Our brunch soups were very good.
A lovely birthday brunch in a pleasant setting with an attentive and personable wait-staff. Perfectly made biscuit and cornbread "extra" for each diner. Generous portions.
Eating outside with the sculpture garden & fountain in view was a lovely way to enjoy brunch. Our server was wonderful. The food was delicious & I highly recommend the Blood Orange Mimosa!
Evening dinner outside under tent roof - rain had been forecast. Beautiful evening, wonderful setting (some sculptures had been rearranged in the surrounding gardens), reliably good food, and just-right level of friendly attentive service. Made for a relaxing fun anniversary celebration.
Food fabulous. Service great. Covid spacing. Always a winner
Gertrudes's Lobster-AMA is a great deal and by the looks of all the happy customers it is greatly appreciated! We atarted out with fresh mouth-watering oysters before our lobster dinners. The meal was delightful and being under the tent overlooking the Sculpture Garden and Fountain made the night even more special! John Gilligan and his friendly and most professional staff seamlessly take care of details in the dining room, while the culinary expertise of chef John Shields and his talented kitchen magicians send only the finest meals in Baltimore to your table! We will return!
Always delicious, always at the top of my list for dining out!
There is no better value than Gertrude's. I've never had anything other than a superb meal there.
The live band is nice but too loud for such a small space!
Dinner was perfect, service was wonderful and the ambiance was amazing. I would recommend.
Wonderful service, food, privacy. Thank you! We'll come again. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
It was a very nice ambiance. The food was good, but if you enjoy lighter fare ( i.e) salads, fish simple foods that are fresh I would really suggest this place.
Gertrude’s ambience and food was outstanding! We dined outside and it was a wonderful compliment to good conversation.
My friend and I enjoyed every morsel of food and the ambience was pleasant and comforting, We look forward to returning to Gertrude's soon.
Last night the noise level from the two table on each side of us was such it was almost impossible to converse. However, being in your wonderful restaurant and enjoying the wonderful food made up for it.
Excellent service and a nice variety of old favorites and creative dishes. We loved dining next to the fountain.
Beautiful serene setting; friendly, efficient service; delicious food and drinks; prices are a little on the high side bu WORTH it!
We were a little early for reservations, but were seated right away. The service was very good. The food was delicious! We liked the unique menu.
