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!

    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 great but have to say the torpedo roll on the chicken salad sandwich was WAY to big to eat comfortably. Would suggest a baguette or smaller, less awkward size roll.

    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!

    Late afternoon lunch with friend. Greeted upon arrival and promptly seated. Good service although disappointed my plate was cleared while my friend was still dining. Doubt this has anything to do with the restaurant but surprised to find parking was $12. Pleasure dining there.

    Lunch today. 8/24/2024 was on the covered outdoor porch on a beautiful sunny day in a gorgeous setting. The faux crab cakes (zucchini) with garlic spinach was excellent. The PEI mussels served with (or buried in ) pappardelle pasta was disappointing. At least 30% of the mussels were undercooked and in opened. The pasta soaked up all the tomato sauce depriving access to the sauce making them cooler than appropriate.Also, compared to your prior, superior, preparations of mussels this entree has a much lower number of edible mussels. Papparadelle is extremely rich and filling. Noise level was fine, except for one table of four, two of whom spoke loudly and cackled frequently and noisily. Our wait staff did not bring bread to the table, despite our requests. We continue to regard Gertrude’s as a fundamental Baltimore GIANT! Joan and Edward Sills
