I had Gertrude's and the Baltimore Museum of Art bookmarked before coming to Baltimore for a work conference at the Hilton next to Camden Yards. I didn't have access to a car for this part of my trip, so I took the free Purple line of the Charm City Connector from the Inner Harbor stop heading north. The bus drops... More

Fabulous time! We hosted our annual holiday party on the back terrace. The food, staff and environment were wonderful. Our team looks forward to celebration each year. Highly recommend working with John Gilligan. He's fast responses and attention to detail made our planning process flawless!

Great place to eat after enjoying an art exhibit or a Jazz concert. Reservations really help on weekends

Taking advantage of a sunny (if chilly) afternoon my partner and I found ourselves in the vicinity and went with TripAdvisor's recommendations for Gertrude's - and we were not disappointed! The outdoor (covered) area where we sat offered a lovely view, and the food and service was excellent. We'll certainly be back, as the menu is well worth exploring further.... More

So glad that you enjoyed your day at Gertrude's. Definitely come back in warmer weather when you can sit outside in the gardens next to the pool. (but of course, we hope you come back sooner than that!) Gertie More

The menu offers a variety of beautifully presented dishes. In particular was the crab cake options that were quite good. Restaurant fills quickly when groups come through, so reservations are recommended.

Gertrude's food is, of course, delicious, with a good range of choices and excellent service. The lunch menu has some good budget-sensitive options. We made an early reservation, and had no trouble getting in. Fully wheelchair accessible.

I needed to take a break from the superb show in the museum and came down to the restaurant -- which turned out to be all spoken for by reservations, but had seats at the bar. I had a superb soup there as well as great coffee to restore me. But, the great thing was the very thoughtful and sympathetic... More

Wasn't the BMA show exquisite? So glad you enjoyed it and that you were able to get a respite at the bar at Gertrude's. You're always welcome, even for just a cup of soup... Hope you'll visit again. Gertie More

We visited for lunch after visiting the Matisse/Diebenkorn exhibition which is spectacular. We couldn't get a reservation until 2:30 and they were very busy but I found the staff to be stiff, although I'll admit probably exhausted. I had the crab cake and it was ok. The spicing was good but there were shells in every bite. The space is... More

Timothy, so glad you stopped by on your latest visit to the BMA. The Matisse/Diebenkorn exhibit was exceptional and it kept us moving at breakneck speed for 3 months. We loved it but by that last week, our staff was pretty tired. Thank you for acknowledging that. We're so sorry that the crab cakes were not up to par that... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch after viewing the Matisse exhibit at the Baltimore Art Museum. We were kind of tired from walking around for many hours and wanted a simple lunch. The menu was varied and interesting. The waiter was very informed about which wines or beer would go with the different crabcake offerings. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

My husband and I enjoy taking time to eat a leisurely lunch at museum restaurants almost as much as we enjoy the collections. It allows us not only a (usually) excellent meal but a chance to rest our overworked backs and brains. As Gertrude’s is the only eatery within the Baltimore Museum of Art, we were a captive audience during... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We're delighted that you were able to get into Gertrude's on your trip. We have been VERY busy with the Matisse Diebenkorn exhibit and are thrilled to have met so many new friends...and to have our decadent crab cakes known around the country. We hope you'll come back to visit often. Gertie More
