I've never had a bad meal here. Put another way, I've always had a great meal here. The menu is small, but what they do they do well. I highly recommend Hersh's for a great, delicious casual dining experience.

Their pasta specials change with the season. They have a lot of spicy pasta entrees but all that I have tried are delicious. If you like thin crust pizza this is your place to try. Decent wine selection. Delicious appetizers and huge salads (enough to share). Overall an excellent meal in a tiny unassuming place

My wife and I recently traveled to Hersh's. We had read online reviews about this restaurant, and we had also read the the recent review in Baltimore magazine as well. We don't live near the restaurant, but decided to make a trip there based on information published on the web. The reviews all praised the entrees and pizza so we... More

A person at a client of mine was retiring so they had a retirement dinner for her here. Parking was pretty bad and I was lucky to find a space fairly close. At this dinner we were given 3 choices. One was some spaghetti dish with eggplant, the other a shrimp dish and the last was a lamb dish. I... More

Ira, Thanks for your review. We're sorry that you didn't find the parking garage at the National Federation of the blind that was reserved for the use of your party. As for the general safety of the area, it is one of the safest areas in Baltimore and we have never (thank G-d) had any incidents involving a customer. Additionally,... More

Someone from Baltimore mentioned this place. It's about a 20 minutes cab ride from downtown/inner harbor, so away from tourist traps. But wow! It's well worth the trip. The ambiance is friendly, professional and down to earth. The staff really knows the menu options, including descriptions of ingredients and cocktail recipes. And the food is outstanding. I had the grilled... More

That pistachio pizza is one of those meals that just sticks with you. Weird sounding but ended up being really good.

Had dinner last night at Hersh's with Friends and we had so much fun. The wait staff was lovely and attentive. The food amazing - we had Caesar Salads, the duck pasta and the shrimp pasta - I had the kale salad and the delicious meatballs. The location of course in Federal Hill is always sketchy for parking but apparently... More

We had excellent pizzas at Hersh's. The mushroom one was lightly drizzled with some sort of balsamic finish, which really gave it some surprising zip. The crust was delightful. Good happy hour specials, two (smallish) beers for $5 from a good list. The drink list was interesting, but we didn't partake. The tiramisu for dessert was also excellent. The only... More

Hersh's pizza is somewhat similar to Homeslyce's pizza a block away, but the setting is much more desirable. Their thin crust pizza is great and they have a different flavor to please everyone. The gelato is also great so make sure you order at least one scoop.
