Hersh's continues to be a hidden gem and one of Baltimore's finest restaurants. Get a pasta dish, all noodles are handmade, recipes are exceptional.

Continues to be one of the best restaurants in Baltimore. Food as good as nearly any restaurant in NYC or DC but with some Baltimore charm (and Baltimore prices!).

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!

In my opinion, Hersh’s is the best restaurant in Baltimore. I could eat their tomato crostini and kale & pistachio pizza every day forever and never tire of it.

Hersh’s continues to exceed all expectations in cuisine and service. The drinks and food were outstanding and they took every measure possible to make things safe and comfortable during the pandemic. Should you call, Chris gets right back to you and his team is consistently impressive.

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!

This was our first date night since opening up post (more intense) quarantine, and it was the perfect situation. I felt so safe. All disposable cutlery etc, distancing between tables, all outside dining, staff wearing masks were all factors that contributed to our experience. Great food and great experience. Highly recommend!

Hersh's is the best overall restaurant in Federal Hill, without doubt. Consistently great food, service and atmosphere. You can always count on a few menu staples, yet they mix it up just enough to keep it interesting. Special shout out to long-time staff member Shannon!
