Great food, excellent location! Hit mess & scone & gravy are really good! Must get the donut holes. The gardens are worth it.

Second time in a week I’ve been to Gertrude’s! Took my daughter to lunch, it was great!
I had the chili burger, she had French toast ( again), both were fantastic!

Food didn't have that wow factor, it was good and cooked perfectly but lacked a bit of flavor for $30 dollar plates.

After a relaxing walk through the fantastic desert botanical garden, my friend and I enjoyed a savory lunch at Gertrudes. The staff at Gertrudes consistently effuses positivity and possess great attention to detail . We were enthusiastically greeted and told we could select a table that was open on the outdoor patio. COVID protocols are in place so every member of the staff were masked and tables spaced according to COVID standards. Our waitress informed us of the special entrees in addition to the menu. We split the steak sandwich and ordered a side of crispy potatoes. The sandwich was delicious showcasing a smoky flavor melded with horseradish and fresh pickles. The crispy potatoes never disappoint. The ambiance is such a treat with scenic views from every table . The Desert Botanical Garden and Gertrudes are state treasures.

Food is okay. Nothing unexpected. The noodles were a little salty. Might been our fault, didn’t say to ease on the soy sauce...

Overall, disappointing. The service was great. The ambience was dulled with a swarm of house flies. The corn fritter appetizer was great. My wife had the tamales, beautiful presentation but lacked flavor a real bummer. I had the cheese burger, also great presentation but lack luster. We will try it again, and hope the food is better.

Had a wonderful, socially distanced lunch at Gertrudes this past week. I ordered a Salmon Salad which was gigantic and delicious. Our Server, Josh, was on top of his game. Provided just the right amount to attention and made a Birthday celebration very special for my daughter.
The Gardens are beautiful this season and Gertrudes is a fabulous place to have a delicious meal.
Thank you to all

The ambiance was very nice, wait staff was very attentive. My complaint is about the food and price. I had the brazed beef and got a very salty pot roast with veggies for $29 and the bread service with a simple loaf of French bread and butter for $8. To me the meal did not feel like it should have been this expensive for the quality. I've been to other local farm to table establishments here in the valley and for that price it would have been better prepared with more value for the $$$. My date got one of the burgers and thought the chips were no better than diritos chips. We really expected a much higher quality for the location and price. Neither of us will be going back anytime soon sad to say.

We were the only guests in the dinning room so noise level and safe were very good. Service was great. Outside would have had better ambiance but there weren’t any sunny tables available. We had a very enjoyable lunch.

My complaint is that there are no vegan options and the vegetarian options were pretty ordinary. It would be nice to order something exceptional that was vegetarian or vegan. Especially when you are having a dinner that is quite pricey.

We ate on the patio on 12/31. It was a chilly night but the heaters were blazing so you could eat without a coat. Food was great. I had the Cioppino which was the seafood special. Our group also had the braised beef, boar stew and Red Beans and Rice. We also shared the crab and kale appetizer. Everything was Delicious! Our server, Christine, was attentive and gave good suggestions. The patio was busy but tables were socially distanced. Wonderful way to say goodbye to 2020. Will be back!!

Decided to eat at Gertrude’s before we went through the Desert Botanical Garden. We had no idea what to expect but it was outside dining. The ambience was perfect. Tables far apart. MANY heaters by the tables. The wait staff was wonderful. The food EXCELLED. We ate (among the 4 of us) from different parts of the menu: a salmon salad, the special of rib-eye, risotto with shrimp, and a burger. They were all fabulous!!! We also tried different cocktails: spicy margarita, a Cosmo martini, gin and tonic and beer. Also perfect. I would go to just eat there!

They need to improve their protocols for observing customer Gluten concerns which are clearly expressed both upon arrival and when ordering. Their menu describes numerous GF option items. But if the prep does not observe clearly expressed GF needs problems can arise. My daughter has celiac and her directives were not followed. Food was sent back.
We love the location, otherwise, and their Covid protocols were solid.

The food was ok. The lamb curry was tasty but the meat was not tender. Service was not ok but had to ask twice for a napkin. The rissotto was tasty a little too heavy and the fish was fried and out on top. I want to real like like this restaurant but I always leave hoping for better food and service.

The service was very good but the food was not. Our Scallops were sandy and barely warm. My husbands food was too spicy and my daughters noodle dish was so salty she didn’t finish it. Overall the patio was very nice and our waitress was good. But we will not go back because of the bad food.
