Very high quality and attention to detail. Service was casual but attentive and rather professional - clearly some good training has been done. We will come back.
Love Hersh's! Food is always spectacular and the owners are pretty fantastic people.
We love this place! The menu is excellent. Sometimes they change up certain menu items depending on the season. The mushroom crostini appetizer is delectable. The winter salad is so fresh and delicious and we always get the margherita pizza with pepperoni! You will not be disappointed with Hershes!
Just reserve ahead of time because the tables fill up.
Great meal! Really is a shining star in Baltimore food!
We had heard a lot of good things about Hersh's and we live in Federal Hill, so we decided to give it a try on a weekday evening. We found parking on the street without any problem, which is not often easy in Federal Hill, and so that was a very good start. We received a friendly greeting and we were seared right away ( we had made reservations ).
The menu was quite interesting and reasonably priced. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful in answering our questions. My wife ordered the winter salad and for her entrée the carmelized onion and mushroom pizza. She enjoyed both and the portions were quite generous. I ordered the beef and tomato soup which was truly outstanding and my entrée was the rockfish served on a bed of farro. The fish was superb, certainly some of the best rockfish I have had in quite a while. However, the farro, which I had never tasted before, left me wishing that the fish had been served with some creamy mashed potatoes. We took advantage of the happy hour wine prices for several glasses of a tasty Italian red and finished off the meal with some delicious locally made ice cream.
The only negative feature that we would mention was the noise level. There were times when my wife and I, sitting across from each other at a table for two, could not understand what the other was saying. We also even had difficulty hearing everything that the waitress was telling us about the items on the menu. The loud music being played over the restaurant speakers and close proximity of the tables is not conducive to an intimate conversation or quiet dining experience.
Hersh's always gets 5 stars! I just wish it was closer to Baltimore county. Love the food, service and atmosphere. Feels like you're coming to visit a friend.
Worth the drive through the city. My favorite pizza, pasta, and cocktails in Bmore. Always and forever.
We went with another couple, ordered four appetizers to share around, and sampled each other's entrees. This might be the only time in my 20+-year dining history around Baltimore that every single item was delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server was cheerful and helpful but not intrusive and recommended a great wine for the table. Hersh's is a Baltimore gem!
Food was delicious! The cauliflower appetizer was amazing. There was a slight issue with our rockfish order but it was remedied very quickly. Our waitress was outstanding. We will definitely go back again!
We had a delicious meal. Cauliflower appetizer was amazing and our pizza was delicious as well. It is a noisy place but great for dinner.
Delicious as always. LOVE this place. Best pizza in Baltimore. We come here often and it’s always consistently great!
I took my special lady friend there and we really enjoyed our meal. All of the pastas are wonderful, pizzas are great, and the service was impeccable!!! Highly recommended!!
The food was good and the restaurant was quiet. I had high expectations because of the online ratings and friends experiences and I wasn’t disappointed, but I also wasn’t too impressed. The brussels appetizer was different than advertised online and slightly over cooked. The pasta was very good but small for 1 person if I didn’t have other food coming.
wonderful prompt service and delicious food
Hersh's was great for overall ambience. The pizza could be better and unfortunately they were out of the mushrooms pizza which was really disappointing.
Thoroughly enjoyed the setting and food. Our waiter was outstanding. She was knowledgeable and made recommendations that we enjoyed. Wonderful experience
One of my favorite sit down italian / pizza places in the Baltimore area. The margarita pizza is fantastic.
Really cool atmosphere, attentive staff, and great eclectic food. We will definitely be back again to try everything
Pastas (all home-made) were excellent and we all liked the fact that they came in both small and large portions. The variety of appetizers and entrees was impressive and some were different than usually encountered. We all (party of 3) enjoyed our meals. A pizza to go also proved to be outstanding--great crust. Prices were more than fair, including the wines.
Only blip in the meal was the "Rockfish Soup"--never before encountered on a menu and much anticipated. Unfortunately, while the soup was tasty no fish pieces of any kind or size, not even shreds, were found in the entire bowl--none.
Great restaurant. Food is always excellent. Service as good as the food.
The service at Hersh’s is outstanding!
Fantastic food, atmosphere and drinks! The owner even came out to say "hello" and give us his recommendations! Highly recommend the octopus, cauliflower and the pizza with kale and pistachios! amazing! Will go back very soon!
One of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore. I got the pasta special and loved the dish. Great wines and cocktails.
An added plus was free parking available Friday and Saturday nights
The service was decent but the food was pretty terrible. Pastas were dry, over seasoned, and my coworkers chicken came out with a raw center. To say this place is a Baltimore staple would be a stretch.
Delicious food, gracious service
I’m never disappointed when I go to Hersh’s the food and cocktails are outstanding
This place is fantastic. Consistently putting out amazing food & providing excellent service. I love it here, and will make it a point to keep coming back!
Always top notch!
Love this place! The food is always amazing, its my favorite place to take out of town guests!
As always, the food was great, the pizzas amazing, the beer choices are varied, the staff are friendly and welcoming. One of my absolute favorite places!
It was great! Excellent pizza and drinks. Will be returning and would recommend to anyone.
This restaurant never ceases to impress me. After several years Hersh's remains one of my Baltimore favorites.
Er.mer.gerd. You can't go wrong. Hersh's gives my life meaning.
Delicious food, great service. The meatballs are amazing!! A local gem.
The service was good, as well as the ambience. Cauliflower appetizer was great, but the pizza arrived a bit lukewarm. The biggest negative was the noise level: music was loud, but guests nearby were extremely loud. The latter was not the restaurant’s fault, of course, but it made conversation difficult. A shame.
Everyday dining on a special occasion tonight. Hersh's is a perennial favorite of ours. Warm, familiar atmosphere, terrific music (if a little on the loud side), and absolutely first rate food and drink. Worth traveling to the southern end of Fed Hill for.
Best pasta I’ve had outside of Italy!
This is a great neighborhood restaurant with terrific pizza and pasta in Federal Hill. Although it was crowded on. Thursday evening, our table was ready on time. Our server was knowledgeable about both the menu and the beers on tap. It was a great night out.
