IMPORTANT: If you want to reserve an OUTDOOR table, you MUST select the "Outdoor" seating option in Open Table. If Open Table does not offer that option, then that means they are all reserved. ("Standard" means an indoor table.)

To our Indoor Diners: we are fortunate to have a very sophisticated small particle air filtration system in our dining room, thanks to the museum.

We have implemented many safety precautions during this current time, including reducing the number of tables available indoors; and requiring all guests who are indoors to wear masks when not seated at a table.

If you encounter any problems with booking online, please do not hesitate call us at 410-889-3399 so we can personally assist you. Thank you!

    Gertrude's would be an outstanding restaurant in any location, but it's especially interesting in a museum. Unlike many museum-based restaurants, Gertrude's could stand alone. The food is fresh and high-quality, the recipes are creative without being wierd, and the portions are good value at reasonable price points. Excellent service in attractive surroundings complete the picture...don't miss!

    We were hungry when we arrived at the museum, and asked to change our evening reservation to lunch, which was done without any problem. We were seated at an outside table with great atmosphere. Three of us ordered crab cake, fried oysters and "I can't believe it's not a crab" cake, and shared. All were excellent, though the "I can't believe" crab cake had something to be desired. It could be crispier and spicier, perhaps with Bay Seasoning or something. We had a great time visiting the museum, and went back to the restaurant for dessert and coffee. Everything we ordered--candy cake, bread pudding and cheesecake--were very good. It was a beautiful day, and the whole experience was very pleasant.

    I had eggs benedict. The muffin too doughy, the ham not cooked enough, the poached egg yolk perfect but I cannot tolerate any soft white and this had some. Which makes me unhappy. My classic bloody mary tasted spicy which I had asked for but was watered down.

    My father was visiting from out of town, and I wanted to treat him to Baltimore farm to table food. Gertrude’s is a favorite for us! I had cream of crab soup and a spinach salad. He ordered a dozen Chincoteague oysters. We shared delightful conversations, shared bites and exchanged sounds of delight. Everything was excellently and artistically prepared. The soup is my favorite anywhere, and my father kept stealing a bite, exclaiming “oh my! That is the best cream of crab I have ever tasted.” I have to agree! Thank you for another wonderful dining experience!

    We love going to Gertrudes. Great to sit out on the patio. This time overall the food was good, but sadly we were not a fan of the butternut squash mac and cheese. That was disgarded.

    We love sitting outside when eating at Gertrude's. There's a view of the sculpture garden and the area is enclosed enough to sit out, even if the weather is bad although if windy, rain could blow in at the sides. We enjoyed raw oysters, an appetizer, a crab cake and the steak frites entrees, and each had dessert. We eat out so infrequently, we tend to make the most of it. The food was all nicely prepared, the steak the level of doneness I requested, all tasty. Looking forward to our next excuse to go.

    We had a delightful brunch at Gertrude’s. It is a beautiful setting and the food was good. It is a little loud inside for conversation as there is live music. If you want an outside table for weekend brunch you need to reserve quite early as there were none left several days ahead. Highly recommend.

    Dined outside, overlooking the sculpture garden… very relaxing! We did multiple small plates to share, and all of them were delicious: Greektown lamb meatballs were the favorite, but following very closely behind were the butternut squash mac and cheese, zuchettes, and sriracha cauliflower. Yum!

    Excellent vegan selections and food. The nonalcoholic IPA beer and Charmery vegan ice cream based desserts were a bonus! The dining room was nearly full yet, others conversations, the large private party outside, nor a large party inside could make the noise level anything but quiet. Thursday is a great night to dine there as the museum is open late.

    Everything was amazing. We were seated outdoors but almost the entire area was in the shade so it was very comfortable. It was easy to hear conversation despite being busy and with nearby construction. Reasonable portions for the price. Everything tasted amazing. The only con I’d say was that the fettuccini was a little undercooked so it was a little hard to twirl.

    First time dining here, recommended by a friend. Was the perfect venue for our ladies lunch gathering. The decor, ambience, view and service were wonderful! The server forgot to bring one of the ladies a beverage she ordered. However, this was readily removed from the bill when requested. Overall, great experience and will definitely be back and recommend!
