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.

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.

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.

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.

This was our first time back, post lockdown. We also attended the ballet (wonderful!). The food constitutes to be creative and well executed. I had the duck enchiladas and was quite pleased, although the heat could be turned up a notch, and the sides of rice and beans were somewhat bland, but overall I still enjoyed the meal a lot. They continue to have creative cocktails and a nice selection of wines. Service was competent and non-intrusive. It was nice to back on one of the prettiest dining patios in the metro area.

Food was good, desert was tasty but a bit to pricey. Service was great. It was nice having reservations.... we were seated right away. I would recommend dinner here when planning an evening at the gardens.

Food was excellent. Wide selection of vegetarian options, which we don't usually get at most restaurants. We had the carrot hummus, elote fritters, and the risotto. Delicious and more than enough to share. Efficient service, too. The location being the Botanical Gardens was an added bonus. Highly recommend.

Beyond expectations. Isaiah, our waiter, was super friendly. Greeted us and wished me Happy Birthday immediately. Food was quick and we ordered per his recommendation. He did not disappoint. Then surprised with birthday Bundt cake and ice cream and card from Gertrude.
