    This was one of the best meals we have had in Baltimore. The beet salad was the best we have ever had. The beets were cooked perfectly and the melding of flavors in the house-made yogurt was fantastic. The Housemade Stracciatella was also incredible. The pasta has been delicious every time we've visisted and this trip was no exception. And the flounder with pickled, fried asparagus was something I never would have imagined. Deserts were great. And I love being able to finish with a single ounce of amaro.

    Pizza is always excellent here but we have also liked the pasta or entrees. The real surprise is the cocktails which are always excellent and interesting.

    The food is fantastic! Every employee that we interacted with was friendly and professional. The atmosphere was comfortable and spacious. Just a little too dark.

    We celebrated our 10 year anniversary of our first date which was at Hersh’s. They’ve always made every effort to make our experiences special and this was no different. Thank you to the wonderful team who treats us like friends and family every time.

    Hersh's continues to be one of the best restaurants in Baltimore. Apparently there is a new chef and he is pushing the envelope a bit, with success. The highlight was cavatelli with broccoli rabe pesto, perfection, a dish that could be served in any restaurant. Wine and beer selection are excellent as always, its very reasonably priced for the quality, and Alicia is a great server.

    This restaurant came recommended to us and we finally decided to try it. The menu is limited but everything on it is done well here. We tried the salads, an appetizer, 2 of the three pastas, a pizza, 2 of the desserts, 1 of the drinkable desserts and coffee. Everything was superb to taste. The only thing that was a little off was the pizza was a little flimsy, but taste was very good. The salads were very fresh, and the dressings were awesome, the pasta dishes melted in your mouth, the desserts were decadent, and the coffee was one of the best I've had in a restaurant. The noise level was just right--we went on a Friday evening around 7, not real busy, you could talk at your table with no issues. Loved this place and would definitely go again!
