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!

    Wonderful ambiance. Definitely plan to return. I shared a memorable evening with friends, and the setting was perfect! Great service, delicious food, great prices. Will definitely return, and plan to hold a private event here sometime in the future, too! Loved the cream of crab soup and the key lime pie.

    I have dined at Gertrude’s numerous times, and up until now, I have never been disappointed with the food or service. On Father’s Day, my family chose to dine outdoors overlooking the sculpture garden. Glorious! We had been seated for a few minutes when our waiter came by to take our drink order. He appeared annoyed that we needed additional time, and despite our attempts to be friendly, it became increasingly clear that he had no intention of engaging with us. No comments or recommendations whatsoever! He did interact with other diners, however. Although my family enjoyed their meals, my Shrimp Scampi special was a disappointment with overcooked pasta and little flavor. Had our waiter been more approachable, I would have mentioned this. I will undoubtedly return to Gertrude’s again, but I hope that my experience will not be marred by an unfriendly waiter who demonstrates preferential treatment towards select customers. There is no excuse for that.

    Fathers Day. Wonderful experience. Sat outside in sculpture garden and it was a beautiful day. The food was great and ambiance perfect. I think it was understaffed, which is a problem at many restaurants.

    Lovely room. Lovely service. Good food. Restaurant is IN the museum so that was a little confusing since our reservation was for when they opened and there’s very little signage to tell you you’re in the right place.

    I've been to Gertrude's many times and this was the first time I was disappointed. My sister ordered quiche and there was a 2 inch piece of plastic wrap or whatever the quiche had been wrapped in. The waitress didn't really react. My sister and I ordered the chocolate croissant bread pudding which was a thin disc of pudding with no chocolate flavor.

    We had a lovely lunch at Gertrude's while touring th eBaltimore Museum of Art. The dining room is a nicely decorated na the service was excellent. There were many menu choices and specials offered for a weekday luncheon. The Crab quiche was outstanding, served with a large portion of garden salad, and the 1/2 sandwich with a cup of soup offered many possibilities. The Crab soup that day was very enjoyable, as was the the chicken salad sandwich. The outdoor dining space also looked very inviting, we will hav etc return to try that on our next visit to the museum.

    My wife and I have enjoyed dining at Gertrude’s’s restaurant at the Baltimore Museum of Art ever since it opened after Donna’s restaurant closed several decades ago. We are both members of the BMA council , she is a docent at the Museum and we participate in one of the Museum’s friends groups so we are each in the Museum multiple days/evenings weekly. Even when we are not visiting the Museum, we elect to eat at Gertrude’s’s restaurant for many brunches, lunches and dinners. The food is consistently outstanding, for the most part the wait staff and the front of the house staff are welcoming, helpful and friendly. The ambience is delight except on the very rare instances when a large party has excessively imbibed. John Shields has established and sustained a remarkable dining experience.
