I went here with two teens. We ordered one of the special crab cake. The crab cake was the best ever! It came with a sauce and 2 sides. We got tartar sauce, fresh fruit, and french fries. I only have two complaints: There was construction outside which was very noisy, and there was mold on one of the blueberries.... More

My wife and I had a wonderful evening last night. I like the fact that Gertrude's was about local seafood and produce before it was trendy - and has resisted the temptation to get trendies than the new farm to market restaurants. One expects lots of good seafood dishes, and there are, but I was pleasantly surprised at the number... More

On a beautiful summer evening my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dining experience surrounded by sculptures and a splashing fountain waterway in an airy urban garden setting that even Gatsby would envy. Yes, it was that nice. Although I am a lifetime resident of the Baltimore area, I only discovered Gertrude's fairly recently while looking for some "other" places... More

The setting is beautiful, and for that reason alone I would give this another try. But the night I went, the food was bad, the service poor, and the decibel level so loud it drowned out the elegance of the place. I hope to have a better experience next time.

You have to workj hard to get in because they are in the midst of remodeling. On top of that, vehicle access was tricky because HBO was shooting an episode of House of Cards on the steps of the museum. We persevered and had a lovely table in the Sculpture Garden--surprisingly pleasant in this blissfully cool August. My two companions... More

John shields knows food. Enough said. Three of is took on the restaurant week menu, tries various things including vegan, and the food was so good it's hard to explain in a short paragraph. Just go. One suggestion. We loved the mace peach cake, but our friend didn't know the flavor of mace and was disappointed Maybe offer both as... More

Very surprising and sophisiticated restaurant located in Balt Museum of Art (adjacent to Johns Hopkins). Food was surprisingly good for a brunch and for any lovers of art - location can't be beat!

Went here for the first time during Baltimore restaurant week. Friend had the vegan menu which was delicious, although the quinoa (quinoa stuffed tomato) was not fully cooked-still had a little crunch to it. Mace Peach cake was phenomenal. Food was fresh and portions were decent. Found the food and setting lovely, great for brunch or a date. Nothing life... More

Beautiful setting overlooking the sculpture garden. Found the staff a little "stand-offish". Had soup and half sandwiches all good. Sweet potato fries good. Loved the museum.

Great location in the Baltimore Museum of Art, if the weather is nice sit outside in the sculpture garden. The food is delightful and also great service. On Tuesdays there is a $12 menu and $20 bottles of wine but the portions and quality are the same as other nights. Best Fried Chicken I've ever had with mashed Potatoes and... More
