Chopped Salad #3
romaine, marcona almonds, Calabrian chilies, red onion, parmigiano & lemon-anchovy vinaigrette
With housemade ricotta & marinara
First time back in a restaurant since February 2019! We chose Hersh’s because it is one of our favorites!!!
We typically love Hersh's and frequent the restaurant every 4 - 6 weeks. Unfortunately, this particular night, the food was somewhat subpar. The quality of the ingredients were fine, but the flavors were very flat and bland. I started with the sesame garlic wings which were cooked nicely, but totally lacked any flavor other than the oil they were fried in. For my main course, I had the ricotta pizza with asparagus and green onions. When it arrived I could tell this was an off night as the crust had no color (a bit undercooked) and no crispiness anywhere to be found. To make matters worse, the ricotta and toppings were completely under-seasoned creating a very unappetizing pizza. My wife did get a salad and pasta carbonara which were both very good. In addition, the service was fine, no complaints at all. While I could have complained about my food, I ate most of the wings and I just took the pizza home to doctor it up myself. Again, we are big fans of Hersh's and will definitely come back, but consistency is the key to the longevity of any restaurant. Hopefully, when they are back to capacity with indoor seating, they'll also be back to their old self. In the meantime, we'll give it a few months, but we'll be back!
Awesome. A wonderful, classy night.
Great experience - very happy with the COVID precautions being taken. The new spring menu is divine; highlights were the ricotta crostini, fried mozzarella and cavatelli pasta.
Love this place! But the iL Blanco pizza which I always get was not the same this time, there was barely any cheese on it :( Octopus was amazing as usual!
Amazing food, top-shelf service—one of the very best restaurants in Baltimore.
Food is always amazing, and the drinks knocked our socks off!! They are so great at being safe and social distancing.
Attentive (but not overbearing) staff
Excellent food and drink
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!
The food was delicious, the service was awesome, and the covid precautions were great. Cocktails were delicious as well! Decent amount of outdoor seating too :)
Staff was super friendly and nice! :)
Kale salad was awesome and meatballs, mushrooms pizza and ginger beer were all tasty! Definitely recommend! Socially distant outdoor dining also a huge plus!
Bring back the octopus salad!!
Always delicious! Happy to have a place I feel super safe going out to eat at during the pandemic. Thank you for providing a wonderful meal in well spaced environment.
Those meatballs! I mean, everything was delicious, but those meatballs!
Everything was perfect- the outdoor seating was comfortable and safe, our waitress was super attentive and sweet, and the food was exquisite!
Always great service and dining experience at Hersh’s. Love their pizza, manhattans and wine selection.
Amazing as always! They really took care in terms of social distancing and precautions, which was really nice. All the food was phenomenal, and service was quick and friendly!
Staff was phenomenal! So friendly and made great recommendations.
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.
Always one of our favorite restaurants. Never disappoints. Outdoor dining very well done!
Great pizza and other Italian fare - a gem in the Federal Hill area!
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.
Always a staple, never disappointed!
Always have a great meal here and was happy to return after COVID. Outdoor dining was great as well as service and food!
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.
Didn’t enjoy the pizza. Salad was pretty good though.
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!).
Great spot for a date! Amazing food and drinks. The hostess and our server were super friendly.
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!
Trash can used by servers is outside by seating area. Flies for days
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.
Great experience at Hersh’s. They did an excellent job of keeping things clean and safe. The food was amazing and I look forward to going again soon!
My husband and I loved going to Hersh’s for a date night and sitting outside! We did their date night special and it was fantastic. We also got cocktails and I loved their watermelon/tequila one!!
Everything was amazing. The Sicilian eggplant was out of this world.
One of the best pizzas we've had (we had the margherita XXX)! The friendly staff made sure to follow strict guidelines to keep us safe during COVID. Amazing experience!
We sat outside. This is one of Baltimore's best. Everyone should support it during these difficult times.
Love Hersch's! Always a great time with great food and friendly people!
Excellent pizza and dessert. Would recommend to everyone!
good food - nice atmosphere - really liked the cliff diver cocktail
