    The atmosphere was nice, casual. Food quality very nice. Attitude from the hostess as we were being seated honestly to the point of being scolded as we were delayed getting through the gate and 10 minutes past our reservation which was at 2:45 she informed us that the kitchen closes at 2:45 not knowing this why offer a booking option for 245. Hostess borderline hostile did not set the tone in the beginning but our waiter was nice and the food was very good

    In the off season (summer), inside seating is the only choice and there is a limited menu. The food was very good, however, and the staff were friendly and efficient.

    Went here for brunch 7/16/22 for the first - and last - time. Dreary, old, dirty interior with sticky tables. Slow, unapologetically rude service and terrible food. We love the Botanical Gardens, but highly recommend you skip this overrated and poorly run part of the experience.

    We loved our dinner at Gertrude's the farm-to-table dishes were fresh and absolutely delicious. We recommend trying the fried cauliflower. Esmeralda was so lovely and truly added to our dining experience with her positive and happy energy. We will for sure be back. It's a must when visiting the Botanical Garden.

    Surprised, only one table occupied and told we would have to sit outside in 104 degrees. Made a place at the bar and over an hour later when we finished there were still 6 empty tables. I think the person seating us could be more attentive to paying customers rather than wanting to seat people in the heat with a totally empty place. We understand why the place was empty.

    The venue at the Botanical Gardens is lovely, and the view from the patio includes live plants as well as three unique Chihuly glass cacti. The food was delicious, and the portion size generous, a good value for the premium price. The wine list was extensive enough to pair well with the variety of food. Service was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend the cauliflower and shishito peppers appetizer.

    Service & accommodations were great. Even had an anniversary card at our table. However, the food was less than expected. Martini was w/ olives stuffed a/ alapino (sp) & tainted the drink. Wifes shrimp salad was less than expected. greens were not fresh (wilted) and not cold as advertised. My tortellini was way over cooked - mushy. Our 1st time there, and we were disappointed. Probably won't return. D.Rankin

    We sat outside but there was a subtle breeze from fans that made the meal very pleasant. Moving air always feels refreshing. Waitress was very attentive but not pushy. We would go again and ask for "Abby". Sea scallops were cooked perfect which was a concern for me when ordering from a desert restaurant.

    A great meal prior to visiting the Chihuly exhibit! The shrimp salad was excellent and the strawberries and almond cake for dessert were to die for! Service was excellent and friendly. I appreciated the help when calling for a reservation when I couldn’t come up with a time on Open Table.

    Gertrude’s was a welcome spot for relaxation & refreshment after a hot (103°) afternoon in the Desert Botanical Garden. I had made a reservation prior to my visit, & my table was ready just a little after the appointed time. I was initially a little disappointed with my outside seating, thinking it would’ve been nicer in the indoor AC, but the shaded outside area turned out to be fine. My waiter was very polite & attentive. I placed a simple order … diced tea & a shrimp salad … which hit the spot perfectly. The large number of good-sized & tasty shrimp were a particularly pleasant surprise. I requested the dressing on the side so I could use as little or much as desired. Since I’d looked at the menu online, the prices were about what I expected. Shortly after I left the restaurant & returned to the garden, I received a call from a Gertrude’s staff person letting me know that I’d left my credit card behind (I’ll chalk that up to the heat) … a VERY much appreciated call. Overall, a pleasant experience in a lovely location.
