We were at the Baltimore Are Museum, and decided ro eat there, It was very practical, and the restaurant is good. But a bit pricey.

Combination of good food, location, service and jazz duo made for a perfect start for an afternoon at the adjacent Museum of Art.

Sorry, but Gertrude's didn't live up to its fans hyperbole. The Vegetarian Chili was very good, but it was a crapshoot after that. The bread wasn't hot and fresh, and it took the cook forever to get the food out. I was thinking that each dish required special attention so it will be worth the wait -- wrong! My wife's... More

Not a bad word about Gertrudes.Beautiful place in the museum, great attentive service and delicious food. For us veggies- love the zukettes (veggie crab cakes), and the very berry salad, and usually a yummy veggie/vegan soup. And their desserts are just as delicious- so save some room.

My partner and I went here the night before our wedding and it was a fantastic choice! As vegans, we are always hard pressed to find an enjoyable option, but we were pleasantly surprised at our experience at Gertrude's. The food was phenomenal, the atmosphere was pleasant, and the staff was even better. The vegan crab cakes were out of... More

We read all the great reviews and decided to visit. Unfortunately, the food was nothing to write home about ( our waiter advised us what is most popular and we sampled many varieties...) and very overpriced: for those prices you'd expect way better culinary experience. This was the level of 7-11 or Wawa.. Yes, food was ok but i can... More

we had brunch here on the weekend, having heard that this restaurant was quite good. the seafood was very tasty - the crabcakes are made from Chesapeake crab (which are slightly sweeter), and hold up very well to a plethora of choices for sauce. the oysters were also very good. you can order "regular" brunch items, as well as sandwiches...

We brought my in-laws here for brunch in January during their visit to Baltimore. The setting and location (on the Hopkins main campus, inside the art museum/sculpture garden) is perfect for introducing guests to the cultural attractions available in Baltimore. The music for the brunch was quite loud, so we chose to be seated in the all-season tent outside. The... More

Gertrude's is the go-to restaurant when you want attention & good food & you can expect consistency in service & food. It's been a many decades-long tradition for me mom & I to go for brunch and for special occasions, & invite friends & family to join us. It offers consistently the same great service & food: that specially sourced... More

I didn't think I needed reservation but I would recommend them. I am always willing to eat at the bar if they serve food at the bar which they do at Gertrudes. I had the Maryland Oysters and Crab Cake. The food was exquisitely prepared and the service excellent even with a full resturant. Because the main entrance to the... More
