Our experience at Hersh’s was outstanding!
We were immediately greeted and when I gave our name they said if we didn’t mind waiting ( we were early) the quiet table we requested would be ready. We happily sat at the bar and the table was ready in no time. The service was excellent and the food so delicious! We had the green beans and lamb meatballs to start and their incomparable pizza for an entree. Because we were too full for dessert they gave us the green beans as an anniversary treat!
It was wonderful!

Really delicious handmade pasta and food. Kind of expensive for a small bowl of noodles (even handmade) without any protein so for that reason I can’t go back regularly like I would like. Good service and I like the outdoor seating.

Do go hungry! $25 for a small, little, tiny serving of pasta that couldn't cost more than 50 cents is ridiculous. It was good, but come on it's pasta. Give me some!!! There wasn't even rolls to fill up on. I would never go back unless I was on a strict starvation diet. Little Italy just up the street would never serve such a small portion and you would always get a roll. Don't go! I'm shocked so many people have this restaurant such high reviews.

We have dined in some of the best restaurants in the US,Canada,and Western Europe, and Hersh's stacks up against any of them. This was one of the best meals we have ever ha! The softshell crabs were about 3/4" thick,succulent and wonderful, and paired with the most delicious farro!!! The strawberry cake was a great finish. Service was top notch. What a wonderful restaurant!!!!

Girls night out... Service was great. Have heard so much about Hersh’s and this was my first visit. A pleasant surprise in Fed Hill!

I had the Greens so Hearty salad (OUTSTANDING) and my friend had the Eggplant & Feta fritters (also OUTSTANDING). I would order both of these again. I had the Carbonara which was the best i have had in Baltimore with one issue - too much black pepper. One less turn of the pepper mill and it would have been as good as the Carbonara I have been served in Italy. My friend had the Tonarelli Nero and she loved it as well.

Will absolutely return here.

We tried a number of the entrees and had a small pizza and everything was absolutely delicious. The Happy Hour special on beer made the whole dinner especially affordable. Furthermore, the entire staff could not have been nicer and even gave everyone at the table a glass of sparkling wine for free since we were celebrating a graduation. I cannot recommend a restaurant more highly.

We had to take a seat at the door or bar which was a little disappointing since we took a later time to get a better seat selection. The service was okay but food, as always doesn’t disappoint.

This was a first time for us at Hersh's after reading and hearing this was a must do while in Baltimore.
Jordan our server was pleasant and informative as we started with drinks. Love the proabition style cocktail. Moved on to the wood fired Asparagus and 2 orders of the Spring onion fritters, they were that great.
We had the Trout and a pizza, both very good. A bottle of wine and the lemon dessert later, we called it an evening. Will definitely be back!

I enjoyed the food and drink at Hersh's. I was in town from out of state visiting family. They chose Hersh's for the menu and atmosphere. The food choices were varied enough for all of us. The bar choices were fun and delicious. The waitress was attentive, and and answered all question with knowledge. Thank you for an outstanding experince.
