My wife and I love this place. The food is great, service good, and it's a nice space. Lately we've been dining outside and it has been fine. They have propane heaters and canopies. The curbside is also good.

The food is always amazing. One suggestion would be to acquire more heaters. If you’re going to eat outside here dress very warmly! It was definitely worth it though!

My wife and I had a great anniversary dinner. Our waitress was great, very friendly, made excellent recommendations and the food was delicious as always. My only complaint is that things came out very slowly. We arrived at 7:30 for our reservation, had our order place by 7:45 if not earlier but didn't get our dinner until 8:30 or so. Not a big deal, but would have been nice to have gotten dinner a bit quicker.

My fiancé and I moved into a new house in Federal Hill and my Aunt told me about Hersh’s after she had a birthday party there years ago. So they took us out to celebrate and we had a fantastic time. The serving staff was amazing and very personal about food to recommend.

The quality of the food was top notch! 11/10 totally worth every penny. My uncle and I had the ravioli, my fiancé had a white pizza with kale, my aunt had the calzone. The ravioli took the spot light. Simply amazing!

The drinks were very well made also. It might be a little expensive for a night out, but it will be well worth it on those special nights. My fiancé and I will definitely be going back.

As always, Hersh's blew it out of the park! It's one of our absolute favorite restaurants for a reason. The tomato crostini is a yearly highlight-- it's just the perfect bite of food in my book. The eggplant entree was phenomenal, and we also loved the corn and parmigiano pasta. We'll see you soon!

Our first restaurant dining experience (beyond takeout) in four months. Pre-pandemic, we had dined a Hersh's on a fairly regular basis and for the last few months, we've been enjoying their takeout. Since the start of all this, the owners have seemed so mindful of the health of their staff and guests that it was a no-brainer for Hersh's to be our first meal out. Overall, it was what I expected: spaced out patio tables, disposable menus and dinnerware, masked servers who were conscious not to socialize too much and to stay a respectful distance away from the table. The sidewalk traffic that passed our table was minimal. Pickup orders were around the corner, which allowed for a quiet and safer dining experience. The food and drinks were outstanding as always. I miss everyone's smiling faces, but this is as good as it's going to get at the moment. Thank you!
