Hersh’s continues to exceed all expectations in cuisine and service. The drinks and food were outstanding and they took every measure possible to make things safe and comfortable during the pandemic. Should you call, Chris gets right back to you and his team is consistently impressive.

Our first restaurant dining experience (beyond takeout) in four months. Pre-pandemic, we had dined a Hersh's on a fairly regular basis and for the last few months, we've been enjoying their takeout. Since the start of all this, the owners have seemed so mindful of the health of their staff and guests that it was a no-brainer for Hersh's to be our first meal out. Overall, it was what I expected: spaced out patio tables, disposable menus and dinnerware, masked servers who were conscious not to socialize too much and to stay a respectful distance away from the table. The sidewalk traffic that passed our table was minimal. Pickup orders were around the corner, which allowed for a quiet and safer dining experience. The food and drinks were outstanding as always. I miss everyone's smiling faces, but this is as good as it's going to get at the moment. Thank you!

This was our first date night since opening up post (more intense) quarantine, and it was the perfect situation. I felt so safe. All disposable cutlery etc, distancing between tables, all outside dining, staff wearing masks were all factors that contributed to our experience. Great food and great experience. Highly recommend!

Hersh's is the best overall restaurant in Federal Hill, without doubt. Consistently great food, service and atmosphere. You can always count on a few menu staples, yet they mix it up just enough to keep it interesting. Special shout out to long-time staff member Shannon!

A wonderful meal once again. New item on the menu, pork belly with shredded brussel sprouts and almonds was amazing. Also loved the arugula salad and scallops with cauliflower risotto. Hershs never disappoints with an amazing chef and a super efficient, friendly staff.

There were 5 of us so they put us upstairs. The decor is quite minimal. The drinks were good. We all liked the meatballs, the Brussels sprouts, the octopus, La Salsiccia pizza, the Atlantic cod. We didn’t like the clam pie, too salty and the Tagliolini had a lot of sand in it and lacked flavors. For dessert, we shared the Haze Bomb which was just ok and the donuts which everyone liked.

We love this place! We go for special occasions, everyday dining and family get togethers. The food is quality and always on point. They have a great happy hour on fridays and if u like wine or beer this is the time to go. It’s pricy but so worth it. It is literally our favorite restaurant In the world and we have had pizza in Italy! It is better here. Trust me

We love Hersh’s. Food is always generously seasoned and eclectic and different than anywhere else in Baltimore. Service Is always good too. The portions aren’t big enough though. We usually have to order a lot of food to leave satisfied. Still, we come back for it because it’s always a pleasant experience.

Good like always. My wife and I dine there frequently. Several dishes are available in small and large size choices. Thant's perfect for us as were can share appetizers and each get a small dish. We usually split a salad and an octopus, then go for any of their pastas.
