We are visiting Phoenix and decided to go to Gertrudes as our last night dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday and our wonderful time in Phoenix. Fred was our waiter and every recommendation he made was stellar. From choice of wine to the selection of food when we were torn between two choices. Our experience here was absolutely wonderful and we will look forward to dining here again next time we are in Phoenix.

I invited my 17-year-old granddaughter to an outing at the Garden. We were interested in the current exhibit: Wind, Water, Earth. Gertrude's convenient location and the menu prompted me to reserve a table and have brunch before we wandered thru the garden.
First, no wait upon arrival. We were seated on the patio, on a table near the edge, which I recommend, since you can watch the birds in the bushes nearby. The hot tea selection is outstanding, the menu listed multiple vegetarian options and so many other delicious foods. I choose the Farmer's soup and salad, McKenzie the Sonoran benedict, vegetarian style. Our waiter Zachary was great, he took good care of us. We finished with a sweet treat, Ricotta mini donuts with dipping sauce. Don't skip this restaurant while visiting the garden!

We wanted a place where we could get desserts and drinks. Their drink menu is substantial and the bartenders do an excellent job. The dessert menu included several outstanding choices, and we easily found something that appealed to each of us. The ambiance is comfortable and relaxing. We have also been to Gertrude's for breakfast and dinner, and the experience has been excellent each time.

We were there with a group of 4, and everyone loved their meals. For me the standout was the cauliflower appetizer and the crab dip.
Also, excellent service, and our waiter steered us in the right direction.
Lovely way to cap a visit to the Desert Botanical Garden.
Must reserve your table in advance.

My cousin from Illinois and I had a wonderful lunch on the sunny patio of Gertrude's! The food was delicious. David, our server, did an excellent job of taking care of us, too! Oh, yes, we loved the Bloody Mary's as well as our lunch choices!

We had a fine dinner. The entrees were creative and tasty. We had a hard time deciding what to order. There is something for everyone. We enjoyed the outdoor dining space and saw several parties, it would be a good choice for gatherings.

Our party of four really enjoyed the patio for pandemic dining. Great service and the setting is hard to beat. A tad on the pricey side for me, but well worth it.

When I snd my family arrived, our table was set up with a little table sign announcing my special day ( celebrating my 77th) and a birthday card addressed to me snd signed by the staff.
The food was great, the covered patio lovely, and the service very good. A very nice way to top off our visit to the Desert Botanical Gardens.

We started with the Elote fritters (corn fritters). Excellent! flavorful, tender and not greasy. Mushroom Risotto was great, which my husband had with the Branzino (Fish) on the side. It was a bit salty but cooked perfectly. I had the braised beef. Also very good with plenty of veggies. However, I thought the brussel sprouts were a bit under done. I like them still crunchy but these were almost O'Natural (raw).
Our cocktails were nicely made and flavorful. The wine was a good pour. They have a nice selection. The service was very attentive and the timing/delivery was perfect. The environment is lovely and relaxing. We sat outside and the Arizona weather was perfect!
This was a special occasion (our belated Valentine's Dinner) as we also attended the Music in the Garden. We couldn't afford to do this every week but it is on our top 10 list for a special occasion.

We had a great dinner before a concert at the Phoenix zoo nearby. The table was ready for our reservation and we were seated near a heater - it was a chilly night. The food was excellent and desert was delicious. I’d plan to eat here when I go to the botanical garden, or before another concert at the zoo.

Very Covid friendly restaurant...we sat outside right next to the desert and temperature was just right. Best crab/kale cheese dip ever!😁
