Excellent meal. Would highly recommend it and extremely convient for the Grand Canal Theatre.
Excellent food and service. Wanted everything on the menu so looking forward to a return visit.
While the food and ambiance were fine I found the wine list pricing totally at variance with the venue. The wine we selected was fine but a more reasonably priced selection would make more sense.
I had been really looking forward to trying Gertrude but found the food disappointing overall. My pork tonkatsu was very fatty. It is served in 3 finger sandwiches, one of which was almost entirely breaded fat. My friend also tasted it and didn't like it. Her duck buns however seemed to be a winner, I wished I had ordered them. We also shared but didn't finish a portion of the dumplings which were bland and not enjoyable at all. Though very nice, our server forgot a coffee on the order and didn't check in to see how the food was or ask why we didn't finish the dumplings. Sadly it was underwhelming overall.
Very nice Service with perfect recomendings for food. Unexpected menue written, with appitising look on the plate. All the best for you and your Team.
Nice set up and design of the cafe.
The staff seemed under pressure with the lunch crowd, running around the place trying to show people to there table, take orders and manage the till at the front door. I would guess that there was a team member or general host missing.
Food was nice, pork sandwich was very fatty so we had to trim the fat off. Others found Duck a bit bland and pancakes with chicken was lovely.
Would be good if they told you had to pay at the till rather than waiting at our table trying to catch someones eye to ask for the bill.
Poor offering from new restaurant. Service was slow and at times, rude. Food was disappointing. I had the soft scramble. It was only half warm and the proportions of the food were unbalanced. Twelve euro for eggs on toast is extortionate.
Would be great to have gluten free / low FODMAP options! Otherwise loved the ambiance !
Barley bowl a winner. The dip with the otherwise excellent fries could be more flavoursome, was a bit 'meh'.
Ate here on a Sunday morning so was eating from the brunch menu. Based on reviews I was looking forward to it, albeit I had only heard people talk about one item from the brunch menu; the chicken pancakes. The experience was tainted from the start with one of the most obnoxious waiters I've encountered. When asked if they had orange juice (a request I would deem reasonable in somewhere claiming to serve brunch) I was met with a snarky no. When asked whether it was possible to have poached eggs rather than fried eggs, an even snarkier no and some kind of comment a school teacher would give regarding the improper use of the word "can". He also forgot our coffee orders not once but twice, leaving us to abandon the second coffee and attempt to pay the bill. When he realised we hadn't left a tip (the service spoke for itself as to why there was no tip) he all but through the receipt at me. Apart from the woeful service, the food was itself bog standard. Nothing to write home about and certainly hyped by the boom.
Had dinner here on Friday night. Great, interesting menu. Service second to none. Food fantastic
The tonkatsu sandwich was tough, chewy, lacking in texture, low on kewpie and most disappointing (lesson learned: very few places can get that right) but I am told their barley bowl is great so I will go back and give it another shot.
I was looking forward to eating here and it did not disappoint. The food was incredible, the service was amazing and the coffee to die for. I will definitely be back soon!
Great wine list with lots of unusual choices and our starters were outstanding
It was nice .... we ordered good wine and it was poured into little
Glasses with no offer to taste. The food was fine - comfort food is what it says and that
Is what it is - nothin fancy. The mixed platter starter was very good but the mussels in polenta were just strange! A nice evening and lovely staff - night give it a second try but not rushing back.
Great food and service in Gertrude as always! *
We had an excellent lunch here. Barley bowl was very good & the apple fritters were delicious.
Really lovely experience at Gertrude. I got the barley bowl and it was a really creative, filling and delicious vegan option. Also love the free refils on filter coffee. I’ll be back soon!
Food itself was very good (coffee amazing ofc) but felt that the dishes were extremely measured portions and not generous portions for brunch, especially considering the price. Service could have been faster but overall I enjoyed my meal.
We had the wine & nibbles. Although tasty, they were quite expensive for the portion sizes.
great taste and menu, but needs slightly bigger portions
Good food but on the expensive side for what it is, had eggs with bacon on the side which was very nice, good service, the coffee is 3fe so bitter hipster type coffee, of which I am not a fan.
Fantastic Sunday afternoon brunch location. Already a favourite of ours
The Carrot and Tofu dish is an excellent starter and the gnocchi is beautifully cooked
We really had a fantastic meal ! The good and the service were brilliant - both waiters we dealt with were lovely ! Really blown away by the menu and the wine list!
Amazing food and service.. Cant wait to return... Friendly, tasty and great value.. Well done all
Unfortunately our server was repeatedly rude to our table, and we also waited an hour for our coffees. Not acceptable. Big let down.
What brought me to Gertrude in the first place was their Instagram account... The pictures there even though fantastic don't do the justice to the meals. Although being a foodie and a marketeer/photographer it definitely was the deciding factor to visit them. I booked our table for lunch and would recommend doing the same as it's popular and busy place. The staff was very friendly, great to see some familiar faces from 3FE. I love the fact that the chef is a female and that you can see everyone working in the kitchen. An absolute star on the menu from the things we tried were the apple fritters. Heavenly delicious. A mix of a cinnamon doughnut served warm and filled with pieces of apples with smooth, velvety custard. You're in for an absolute treat!
Chicken stack was beautiful (perfect size), the croquettes were delicious.
Super friendly staff. Food was great. They're only recently open so they're building from a really strong base.
Food and ambience was great, service and attentiveness was excellent. The menu is also something new, interesting, and everything we tried was fantastic at a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend dropping by.
Super staff, great food, a welcome addition to the area. Look forward to returning
Relaxing atmosphere with attentive and friendly staff. Great coffee and delicious food.
Tonkatsu was sublime. Take a lead from the staff on everything, they know this place best.
We were a family group booked in for brunch, one of the group is vegetarian. The menu is very different and exiting. A Relaxed atmosphere,didn’t feel rushed and good value for money. Looking forward to returning to try out the wine list!
Lovely lunch with delicious food, great wine, beautiful coffee and friendly service.
Excellent service, reasonably priced menu and interesting options in a cool setting. We will be back!!
We were so excited to see a new restaurant open just around the corner from our office so a few of us went on Friday lunchtime. The decor was lovely and the staff were pleasant but I am afraid that was where it stopped... The menu on paper looked a bit strange but everyone was open to try... When the food came though it was not well presented (most dishes came alone on a stark white plate) and did not taste great. The portions were also incredible small and we left hungry. When we got back to the office everyone was keen to hear how it was and am afraid we had to tell them not to waste their time trying it as it was so disappointing.
