Excellent restaurant!

The decor is wonderfully done, especially the outdoors seating facing the beautiful garden and water fountain. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful!

I love spending time walking around the Baltimore Museum of Art for a while and ending up at Gertrude's! The museum is free so it's nice to treat yourself to a treat before you leave. Many times I have taken one of my children and gotten some lemon sorbet or another dessert and sat outside looking over the water feature... More

A great dining experience involves a constellation of elements: food, atmosphere, staff, location. This is a creative restaurant located in the Baltimore Museum of Art. Jon Shields, the chef, is a local boy and the cuisine emphasizes the local list of ingredients and style. They have creative seasonal decor, and the vibe is local, friendly, neighborly. The crab cakes are... More

We came for lunch but missed it by 5 minutes so we were given the dinner menus. Not expecting to eat dinner so early we were pleased to see that they had an extensive menu with many lunch type choices. I ended up ordering fried catfish , hush puppies and greens. Everything was cooked to perfection and quite good! We... More

Every Tuesday evening, Gertrude's turns into Gertie's Cafe and there is a long list of $15 entrees. They offer the best fried chicken in Baltimore and outstanding crab cakes, among other things. Rarely does one have to wait for a member of the waitstaff to appear and the service is attentive and intelligent. Next comes a full basket of bread... More

Went to visit Johns Hopkins University and stopped at Gertrude's for a Sunday Brunch. Meal was great, but service and atmosphere even better. Worth the effort - hint, it's inside the Baltimore Art Museum.

Good food, good prices and a good bar! The wait staff can be a little snooty. Try their lemon herbed asparagus. It's out of this world!

My friend from out of town visited and we went to Gertrude's with 2 additional friends. We enjoyed the food, drinks and dessert. There is outside seating in nice weather. Dim lighting and great service. This is a wonderful place.

We took our out of town guests to Gertrude's; and they enjoyed the food, ambiance, and crisp, linen white tablecloth that were on the tables. The only observation is why do hostess sit guests in the aisle at the front of the restaurant. It is quite difficult dining with people constantly bumping into our table. When this happened, we immediately... More

Four friends and I recently went to Gertrude's for their Tuesday special. We had reservations and were seated promptly. After 15 minutes at the table I finally stopped a server and told them that we had not even been approached by anyone for even a drink order. About 5 minutes later a server came over apologized and took our drink... More
