Not my first choice but it was good.

We drove around this area of Baltimore looking for somewhere neat to eat. Our first few options were closed or so busy you couldn't get a table for hours. It was a little bizarre. However, we were seated as soon as we walked in and the mimosas were VERY strong for Sunday brunch (which was a plus... read more

With crab cakes becoming an every-menu option across the US it's nice to see that somewhere they get it absolutely right. Today's featured "Mrs Tawes" crab cake was Maryland's finest. Sweet thumb-sized lumps of fresh-picked crab, roughed up just enough to bind with a well seasoned creamy sauce...no breadcrumbs or other stodge in these cakes. Finally, a light dusting of... More

We were the second table to be seated for Sunday brunch, but we got neither hot food nor good service. The eggs benedict with crab cakes were such a disappointment. First, these flat patties were not lump crab (we had carefully asked), and, as Maryland natives, we know the difference. Are there any Maryland natives in the kitchen? Do they... More

We went to Gertrude thinking it will be this magnificent brunch experience and were disappointed. The food is mediocre and the service is ok. The ambience is the one thing that does make it special. It doesn't really make my mental list of brunch places in Baltimore.

I first visited this restaurant with my prom date and his family way back in 2008, I've been a few times since then and each time I enjoy the food and the atmosphere. It's very elegant and everything is prepared and presented in a wonderful manner. I wouldn't bring small children here or come here casually to hang out but... More

The atmosphere and ambiance was excellent. We had entrees of fried oysters and salmon. I had greens (with carrots and onions) and my wife had garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was excellent. The only drawback was we couldn't find it even though the GPS said we had arrived. We circled the block three times only to realize that the restaurant is... More

It was our first trip to Gertrude's and the BMoA. We were there on Dec. 20th (pre-Christmas dinner) and enjoyed the ambiance of the museum and the restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive without being a nuisance. We are planning to make this an annual ritual. I'm planning a trip to tour the museum.

Here for holiday tea. I think we'd have been better off just ordering off normal menu. Everyone's tea pot leaked and we ended up with stains all over the table cloth. Server was friendly, but we had to ask for more hot water...at a TEA. $30 got us a savory course, a sweet course, and a chocolate dessert. Most things... More

Gertrude's is a place for that special evening, or lunch for that matter. Excellent cuisine and service are hallmarks of this beautiful restaurant. Its location within the Baltimore Museum of Art adds to its ambience. In good weather outdoor or dining under the tent is wonderful because the outdoor area extends into the museum's sculpture garden. Expect a good selection... More

We had a wonderful time seeing the new exhibit. The renovations were amazing. The restaurant looked beautiful for the holiday season. We both had the crab cake which was not lump like we were told and served with 2 sides. They would have been better without the sides and giving a cab cake that was not stringy. I usually like...
