Diner Reviews
  • "Beautiful place to dine or get drinks. Fun place to take out of towners. A little overpriced and a little sceney but really fun vibe and they have live music which bumps it up 20 notches in my book."

  • "I read up on some reviews before going to Perch and it made me feel iffy about going but i went anyway. I took my girlfriend for her birthday and i can honestly say it was a great night. The food is 4/5 , not overpriced. The view is great and the service was spot on. My waiter's name was Walter, excellent waiter honestly."

  • "The view is fantastic at sunset and this is the place to go for a first date or 100th date. The menu is a bit limited and the food is ok to good."

  • "The ambiance was great and lovely. The food was really good. The service was superb. However, if you are allergic to bees, don't sit next to a plant pot. The bees were moving along from plant to plant and it made me nervous. If it weren't for that, I would give them a 5 star rating on everything."

  • "Great view and vibe. 13th floor is pretty cool. Eclectic scene, with a fun crowd. the top floor is the bar, which was great to go have a drink after dinner. Food was good. Expensive for what you get though."

  • "It was our anniversary and we chose to celebrate here. We got the worst service. It took the server 20 min to take our order. After that, we had to wait more than 45 min for our food. The server didn't once check up on us. And it wasn't because the restaurant was crowded. Each and every table around us was promptly served. Really disappointed especially since we chose to celebrate our special occasion here."

  • "I had a reservation and I was sat down at the wrong table. The waitress came up to us with the other party and asked us very loudly, why were we sitting there. I informed her that we were sat down by the host and she asked us to get up and let the other party sit down. I was humiliated and so embarassed, everyone was looking at us get up. The manager came up to us and apologized and we had to wait and stand around for another 30 minutes before they found another table for us. They original waitress was very rude and it was very disresoectful how we were asked to move. We had a dinner bill of almost $300, it is not a cheap place, but we were treated like so."

  • "Entering into the building of Perch you are right away welcomed and led to the elevator which takes you to the top. There are staff everywhere to help you and direct you. The view from any seat is amazing and the food came quicker than I thought. I went to Perch for lunch and I will was so pleased with the sandwich I ordered. It was amazing."

  • "Made reservations just over a week, had requested and hoping for outside patio seating and nothing would had to wait another 30 minutes for that."

  • "Joel the bartender and servers at our table were amazing. It was entirely too hot but we pushed though. I wish there was more organization when it came to the 5 o'clock hour"

  • "Beautiful setting - amazing skyline! Great live music and food! We got seated about 45 minutes after our reservation but they did offer us free champagne while we waited. Waiter forgot a side dish (and didn't comp it) but it was worth the wait! Overall, great night and hospitable management."

  • "Came here for lunch on a Monday with some folks from out of town. A great place for reliably good bistro-type French food, unusual and beautiful ambience, on the 15th floor of an old building overlooking Pershing Square. A nice spot for a get together with friends! Service was very friendly and attentive, not obtrusive. Bravo."

  • "We arrived early to have drinks on the upper floor. 1/3 was reserved for a private party which they should really do only on weekdays as the place was limited of compactly. Even with dining reservations we had to wait to go upstairs. Food was great as always"

  • "Took my girlfriend here for her birthday/our anniversary and we had a great experience. I booked a reservation using OpenTable for the first time and it was incredibly helpful. They got all of my special requests and gave us a great seat with an excellent view. I would totally recommend going here and booking through OpenTable."

  • "Only comment from my European visitors - great view, great food, but a little crazy that you pay for olives with your apero"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The food is great. The indoor dining/bar area is like visiting with your doting rich aunt who lives in Paris. The outdoor dining area has a glamorous view of the DTLA skyline. The wait staff is good and jolly. The restaurant gets crowded but not claustrophobic or noisy."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Not only the food is great, but the scene and view from the rooftop is spectacular. The bar area is very ample and the service is amazing. We went for an special occasion and we got a nice romantic table apartbfrok the crowd. There was live band playing great soul and jazz music"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The Happy Hour menu is pretty good. They have a full bar and the scene around sunset is really nice. Very romantic with an excellent view of dtla. Roof top bar is Def a plus."

  • "Was looking for a rooftop restaurant in downtown LA on the internet and happened to encounter Perch. Was pleased I chose this little spot. Getting to the restaurant felt like a spy movie with the elevator rides and dark rooms. Their french toast is amazing! Perfectly cooked and lightly sweetened with fresh raspberries, strawberries, & blueberries. I paired it with a mimosa which was ok and nothing special. I was surprised that the majority of the people dining their wore a more casual dress code for a fine restaurant like this. Some advice: Go on Sunday afternoons. They have a live jazz band. They didn't play too loud that it distracted from the experience. They sounded pretty great as well."

  • "Horrible food and service!!!! Nice view and good for drinks only!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "You come here specifically for the view and drinks. The food is just OK. My date and both had the filet and the quality wasn't there. It wasn't as tender as it should have been for "medium" doneness. The bordelaise sauce was great though. The sliced fingerling potatoes and asparagus were good. We shared the almond cake that came with a scoop of ice cream and sliced fresh fruit. The almond cake was too dry and gritty tasting (maybe too many crushed almonds and it wasn't moist enough). Hmmm, that dish needs to be rethought. I read other reviews and they suggested dining on the patio, which was a great suggestion. The rooftop bar was super impressive."

  • "Chose Perch for my birthday celebration and they rocked it. 11 of us dined and they customized a fixed price menu which was both elegant and efficient. The staff was incredibly professional. No detail left unnoticed. And of course the view is breathtaking. I will come back again and again."

  • "My husband and I went here first time for our 17th anniversary and we loved it!!!! Excellent place, very lively, romantic, great views, great food and drinks. I was pleased with their service, big smiles and very friendly:))"

  • "This place was recommended by a co-worker and my husband decided to take me for my bday. What an amazing experience! The view was spectacular, the ambience lovely and the food was out of this world. I expected mediocre food because I thought the main focus would be the view and the overall feel of the place. Boy was I wrong and pleasantly surprised. The braised short ribs just melted in your mouth and the bread pudding was the perfect dessert. I can't wait to go back again."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Friends from out of town told me about this - don't remember seeing anything about Perch. So glad we went. It's lovely to sit outside. and the live music was also nice - not too loud, good background so we could still talk"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The food was really good, though there were some glitches here and there. Our oysters had broken shells in them and we had to remind our server that we hadn't received our macaroni and cheese. The pork belly appetizer was amazing and the boeuf bordelaise was so tender that I didn't have to use a knife...it was truly enjoyable. My only other complain would be the crowded seating. My friend and I sat at a two top table in the middle of two others and there was less than 6" between tables so it was not impossible to hear the other phone conversations. Beautiful view, great drinks and wonderful food. I'd go back and try it again."

  • "The dining experience at Perch LA was fantastic! Starting from the overall friendliness from the person who called me to every person we encountered who made sure our experience was enjoyable. The food was very tasty and well plated. No doubt the VIEW steals the show! Pure class. Most important, I felt that the restaurant is not pretentious. The experience at Perch LA is a classy, relaxed and friendly environment."

  • "I had dinner there on a Monday night and the ambiance was perfect, there was a live band playing outside and heaters to keep us cold ones warm. The food is excellent, I got the tuna tartare and skewers to share and the scallops as entree. The drinks are made well :) I'd definitely go back."

  • "I am really impressed with the view, the food and that the band was not overpowering. Very nice for any occasion. I'm going to make it my summer sunset appetizer tradition."
