Very attractive, classy restaurant with excellent menu at competitive prices. Advise reservations as it is popular and not large (part of the charm). Nice wine pairings. Enjoyed our meals very much.

Very nice museum and the location of the restaurant is good, food is excellent, servings are the right size, great decor in the restaurant, patio seating appears available - we came when the weather did not permit open air lunching. The staff is very good but some more attention/ listening skils to the ordering customer could help! Definitely recommend.

This is an elegant little bistro/kitchen on the opposite side of the Baltimore Museum of Art's lobby that seems to specialize in good local fare including crap cakes and other crab dishes. The food was a bit pricey, but rather tasty. The service, however, was poor in the sense that me and my party found ourselves waiting approximately thirty minutes... More

Gertrude's... pretty average food, spotty service, with slightly elevated prices and decor to make it feel a bit fancy. I will say that portion sizes are generous and that the seafood options are probably the best here. Nothing will jump out at you, and nothing will sour your appetite. No validated parking, but there's pretty of cheap street parking available.

The location inside the Baltimore Museum of Art made our Sunday brunch there a perfect compliment to our visit to that wonderful museum. Unfortunately, the meal was less than stellar. My husband ordered the signature crabcakes, which were unremarkable. I ordered the country breakfast, which was also just mediocre.

Family lunch was delightful. Many dishes sampled- seafood salad (gr8!), eggs Crabette (looked gr8!), several Hutzler's Tea Room clubs (looked g8!), Highlandtown chicken salad (looked gr8!). NO left-overs! Service attentive. Atmosphere friendly. Many diners of all ages. In fact, crowded, so make a reservation. Where else can you view the Matisses et al when you have finished?

Went to Gertrudes before a performance. Sat at the bar and ordered 2 drinks and appetizers. The apps were supposed to be mini crab cakes and shrimps. There were 4 very small cakes that seemed to have no crab meat at all and the shrimp tasted as if they were sitting under a heating lamp for an hour. The price... More

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 for me). The... 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
