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.

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.

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.

Hersh's is great for sharing. As appetizers the four of us shared meatballs, shrimp, and fried sweet potatoes and shared two pizzas for our entree with a salad for one of us. Shannon, our server, was efficient and pleasant; but, as is often the case in restaurants today, was a little too eager to have us proceed with our order and not socialize too much.

Don't know why they took us to the 2nd floor even though there were a lot of space on the first floor. My friend had to carry her suitcase upstairs and they seated us in the most corner place possible too.

1st time dining at Hersh's. Was very excited about the chance. I really like the menu. Simplicity of dishes leaves little place to hide errors in execution or preparation. It was a very good 1st visit. Service was not invasive but very attentive. We were left to our conversation and eats. The ravioli was simply spectacular. We decided that next time we would each order as it is too good to share. Pizza was satisfying, but our server accurately asserted that the homemade pasta was the real star of the show. Wine prices were very competitive and we enjoyed a bottle of Rioja.
I very much look forward to the next opportunity to dine there!!!

Nice, simple menu and the food is always amazing. It took a little long to get our food and drinks this time around, which was surprising because it was also slow for a Saturday. The food is still worth the wait - really delicious and currently our favorite Baltimore restaurant.

Always delicious. I think that this is the best wood fired pizza in baltimore. My husband gets bent out of shape that you have to cut it yourself but I'm the one who does it anyways and it's not that hard! The crust is nice and thin and delicious. The happy hour deals are great and the desserts are great as well. It's a little loud so if you're going with noise sensitive folks, you may want to sit outside. Otherwise it's a fun atmosphere with delicious and reliable delicious food and service!
