Great food choices, service was okay but we were made aware 3pm was last time to order. Prices are reasonable and the food is always excellent.

I arrived 1 hour early for a reservation. I was seated immediately and at a preferred seat (indoor instead of outdoor). Service was quick and courteous, food was great.

Excellent service and accommodation.

We had a reservation for the tent. However, the day was very humid, and without being asked, the hostess asked whether we'd prefer to eat inside. We gratefully accepted.

I requested a certain item which was not on the menu on that particular day. The waiter spoke to the kitchen and brought out the item I wanted.

I enjoy flute music, but our table was too close to the musician, making it difficult to hold a conversation,

Fantastic in every way! Excellent and innovative food, nice atmosphere, attentive service. My only quibble with Gertrude's is that servers can be a bit unfriendly, as if they are feeling superior because of the quality of the restaurant. But there is some improvement in that, based on my recent experience. The food can't be beat. I just wish the servers were kinder. No one enjoys a snobby restaurant...

We were seated right away for our luncheon and ordered Cesar salad with grilled chicken and one baby kale salad. Both were disappointing. The kale was tough and the chicken burnt and thus totally dried out. Staff offered to replace but they should not have served it in the first place. The server was attentive. However, we expected excellent food and did not get it. There is no free parking and we were surprised with a $ 9 fee.

Gertrude's is a lovely relaxing restaurant with true Baltimore food. It is attached to the Baltimore Museum of Art (you need a reservation to get into the museum), and a sculpture garden. Very nice, could be romantic, evening.

After spending several hours in the BMA, we pre arranged dinner plans at Gertrude’s. The service and food were perfect. My wife ate the fried oysters, I ate the Monk fish and our granddaughter ate a power house sandwich. All were delicious. We also had desert. What a treat! Will definitely go again soon.

What I like about Gertrude's besides the atmosphere, which can't be beat is their consistency. I have never had a bad meal and what you read on the menu is described perfectly. We had a wonderful birthday brunch. Great drinks, food and a beautiful view. Afterwards, despite the cicadas, we had a lovely stroll through the Sculpture Garden.

Jay, our server who works dinnertimes on Fridays & Saturdays, really made our evening spectacular w/ his elegant, warmly welcoming, professional, extremely polite & very attentive, incredibly non-intrusive service. He really made certain that our celebration of our 2 friends’ 1st Wedding Anniversary passed memorably in a way to truly complement the unexpected perfect weather over our table al fresco near the fountain. An amazing guy who capped off our fantastic dinners w/ Happy Anniversary chocolate-laced decorated desserts for our good friends! Thank you so much, Jay! We really want to visit w/ you again soon!

Gertrude's never disappoints. I keep asking myself, "Why isn't this the first place that I think of for dining?" I don't know the answer because it is always consistently good, the atmosphere is nice, and service is always good as well. What's not to like? Reasonably priced drinks, well chosen moderately priced wines, very good seafood, and enough variety for anyone. We'll be back more frequently in the future.

Gertrude's was wonderful and our server was so nice and friendly and fun. We all ordered the Gertrude crabcakes which were perfect and not overly seasoned or overly large. Crabcakes are expensive, so that is that, and these were very good with not so much filler and honestly the meal felt quite healthy. Believe it or not, we all went nuts on the potatoes! Anyhow - definitely a lovey place, great staff and great food...and you cant beat the location!!

As always dining at Gertrude’s is special. And of course whenever Tom is out server, everything becomes extra special. Gertrude's is, and will always remain, a favorite of mine - my “Go to place for an excellent dining experience!”

There was live music inside, though we opted for an outside table next to the fountain. The overhead fans kept us cool while we feasted on amazing crab cakes, swordfish and a serviceberry omelette. We are never disappointed!

The tented garden area is very pleasant and we had an enjoyable dinner at Gertrudes with friends. The lamb meatball appetizer and blueberry/raspberry tart dessert were delicious and we’ll return to order them again along with our other favorites..
