Gertrude's is such a relaxing place to eat. Excellent food and you can not beat their patio.
The real reason to eat at Gertrude’s is the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden. The food is excellent. The patio is the only choice, inside was loud and we didn’t have a choice to sit outside.
Great Brunch! Great location! Will be going back often.
This a great place to visit at least once, the appetizers were great and so was the service. After a long through the botanical garden, this will be the right place end the visit.
The food was amazingly delicious. I am planning to return with other friends as soon as possible. The wait staff was terrific and the choices for brunch were outstanding.
The ambiance is perfect! Food and cocktails were delicious! Can’t wait to have the baby shower there in October on the courtyard!!!!
We always love eating here! Such an amazing local menu and wine list. Would recommend for date nites or a great time with friends and family.
Brunch menu was limited, but excellent. Great service and yummy deserts!
The food was wonderful! We did not expect the drinks to be as delicious as they were. I cannot say enough about the staff- this was the 1st restaurant that I felt comfortable going to post Covid. Their tables on the patio are still spaced very far apart and wait staff wears their masks. Thank you for the comfortable and inviting atmosphere!
Enjoy uncrowded Gertrudes in the summer. Same awesome surroundings, same attention to detail. Fast service with waitstaff willing to go the extra mile to make your experience memorable.
Although we planned to eat outside for Father’s Day, Michelle accommodated us at the bar inside due to the sweltering heat. We had a very nice experience and food was delicious. Would love misters on the patio so we can eat outside! Donut holes with 3 different fresh sauces are out of this world!
The new menu is terrible, and I am fairly certain the scrambled eggs I got were not real eggs, but egg substitutes. They should bring back the old menu as the current quality and variety is worse than Denny's/IHOP.
The food is extremely overpriced. Nothing spectacular about it. I ordered the salmon salad and it tasted like it came out of a can, I can make better tasting ones at home. The toppings were little to none. The carrot hummus appetizer tasted sour like it was going bad. Drinks were warm, we ordered the blackberry basil lemonade and beer. The price was astronomical in our eyes for the quality and taste... very upset with our money spent here.
Would be nice if they added misters to the outside, but the food was great as always and the service was outstanding. Always enjoy going there and look forward to the next time.
This restaurant is so good, I keep visiting the Desert Botanical Garden with different friends, then having a meal there. The atmosphere is gorgeous, the service and food are top notch. The staff is helpful and polite. The chefs are creative and willing to accommodate special needs.
I was quite surprised by the lack of ambiance since my last visit. There were enough people eventually but we never got past the concrete floor and dark dining room. The menu is very limited but all our selections were very good and very fresh. Our server, Fred, was perfect…attentive and responsive and especially kind to our birthday guest.
Sonora Benedict was disappointing.
Service and food was amazing! My family and I love Gertrudes
The food was not fresh as advertised... did not seem to be "farm to table". We were looking forward to local, fresh food and that did not happen. The sangria was delicious, though.
Food outstanding! Server great! Portions large easily shareable the BURRO was amazing! Chips and Salsa best I have ever had!
Thank YOU!!! Love the way you love us!
Nice out door seating!
Our lunch was good, but the change in the way they take orders, seems to make the experience not as enjoyable. You order at the front, and pay before you get your food. So, I would recommend that if you normally tip the wait staff, bring cash because you can put it on the table at the end of your meal. The staff didn't come around often and ask, "how is everything? Can I get you anything else?" So, no personal service. Also, the doors were open to the patio and there were too many flies buzzing around. Invest in a large screen door if you are going to keep that door open.
Our summer service style is quite different than our traditional table service. I reached out to every guest prior to let them know of our change, so I am sorry if you had not received my message prior to your visit. If you want the Gertrude's style of service you've come to enjoy, we do offer it on weekends (Fri night through Sun night) all summer and back to normal in late September. We look forward to serving you again soon.
Excellent food in a beautiful, outdoor setting. Portions were generous and quality was top notch.
Patio is open and aire, tables at a good distance.
The Hot Mess was very enjoyable
Amazing! Staff was great. We had to wait a few minutes for our table abs they gave us a free appetizer. The server was great and the food was excellent.
I especially enjoyed eating outdoors, the hostess was very thoughtful and waiter gave us great service
After writing a truthful review of a previous visit the week prior I was caught a little off guard by what felt like an attack at the desk upon check-in when I gave the Hostess my name. The Hostess was polite but defensive regarding my previous remarks. This was embarrassing in front of my friend to whom I had raved about Gertrudes. In my first review I mentioned that on the previous visit the waiter attempted to remove our dishes before we were through eating. This time the waiter (who was apparently forewarned) was careful not to remove anything to the point of leaving a full cocktail that my friend found too strong when she ordered another to replace it. It was just bizarre. I would still recommend Gertrudes. Just change your name if you write a review. ;)
The food was amazing, with choices that are a step above or a hamburger. The Korean Chicken Thighs and the Duck Enchiladas were delicious with just the right amount of "outside the box" flavors. I am encouraging friends to try this out for a lovely evening.
Food is fresh and wonderful! Service is excellent. The hostess was very welcoming and efficient.
A little special lunch after visiting the Botanical Gardens. We all enjoyed it.
Gathered before Ballet program. Very warm inside but service was wonderful.
Creative menu. Great atmosphere. Excellent drinks................
Great outdoor patio for dining. Good COVID procedures
Great diverse menu. Food was eclectic and delicious. Dining outside was comfortable and relaxing. Service was competent and attentive. Responded politely to all inquiries and made good recommendations.
Fabulous food, friendly waitress, wonderful atmosphere
Amazing presentation & flavors.
Shady outdoor patio and tasty food
We arrived late for dinner for our anniversary because the Ballet was going on. Our reservation was at 7:30. We arrived a few minutes before. There was no one at the podium where we were to wait for seating. It was obvious they were in early preparation for closing. Our waiter was very nice. We did have to ask a different waiter for assistance once which was ok. A waiter came to remove our dishes while one of us was still eating which is annoying in any restaurant. I was a wait person in my earlier life so I get it There was a fair amount of patrons still having dinner. I still love Gertrudes and will be having dinner there with my friend on June 4 when we attend the Ballet.
Fabulous French toast. Perfect prickly pear syrup with white chocolate chips. Crispy bacon.
Scone bowl was delicious. Scrambled eggs on top of scone with peppery gravy. Bacon and sausage came with it.
This was a special night for us as we were hosting my husband’s Dad and Step-Mom. The staff was so accommodating after we sat and needed to move our table due to the heat. Every time I have been there, which is a lot, the staff is amazing.
