Gertrude’s – A Uniquely Local Experience

Gertrude’s is known for its seasonally inspired cooking that combines American favorites with classic cooking techniques and flavors from around the globe. Gertrude’s seasonal menus celebrate Arizona’s growers and producers while offering a sophisticated culinary experience in a reserved oasis setting.

The restaurant’s highly acclaimed patio is the perfect setting for a quick lunch, leisurely glass of wine, or exquisite four course dinner in a stunning garden setting. The indoor dining room boasts the bar with libations as imaginative as the cuisine. The clever drink menus feature local brewers and wine makers supplemented with international spirits to deliver unique botanic creations that pair well with each and every dish for an unrivaled dining experience.

Fresh herbs and vegetables from Gertrude’s patio and the community garden located on property at the Desert Botanical Garden are found in most everything that is served.

Gertrude’s was named for Mrs. Gertrude Divine Webster, an environmentalist ahead of her time, who founded the Desert Botanical Garden in 1939.

Hause Restaurant Group, owned by Alan and Chantal Hause, is the privileged operator this noteworthy restaurant, located just inside the Desert Botanical Garden.
