Diner Reviews
  • "Perch is a phantasmagorical journey into the good life. The elevator are a bit old, but the food at the top makes ridding them worth it."

  • "i've been to Perch for brunch a handful of times and i've never walked out unsatisfied the staff is great and the food is amazing! def will keep coming back."

  • "We went for a birthday dinner. The service was exceptional. Our waiter really paid attention and when one diner was unhappy with their food, he immediately offered to remove it from the bill and gave her new choices. He also had a great knowledge of wines. I loved the cab he suggested. The food was average, nothing special. We did love the dessert gelato and the bread pudding. As far as the meal, I had the sea bass, again good, but I've had better. The scallops had too many onions and the beef they felt was a little tough. The view is nice, the ambiance felt homey and comfortable. I would definitely go back because of that."

  • "Beautiful and romantic outdoor dinning spot on the lower floor (15th) and a nice bar scene on the top 16th floor. Unlike many restaurants with a view they do not use this as a crutch and get by with mediocre food. Everyone in my group enjoyed their main dish and dessert. The white chocolate pudding was delicious and not too heavy/rich like many other places."

  • "I decided to come to Perch on a date and I was not disappointed. Everything from the view to the food and service was top notch."

  • "we walked-in for a brunch around 1PM and we noticed there were many tables available but they said all are reservations so they will put us on waiting list. we waited. 30mins... 45 min... 55min.... the tables that were available were still available. so i logged in to opentable.com to see if they were telling the truth but guess what. there were a lot of tables left for reservation at that time period. i instantly reserved through opentable for 2PM and walked back to them and told them i just made a reservation. they lead us straight to the table that was available an hour ago. WHAT??? well besides that, their service was great throughout brunch but i do think their dishes are overpriced for its portion and quality."

  • "Food was great - just ordered one appetizer and 3 small dishes to share with a friend. Wine was great, ambience is great. Service left a little to be desired, which was the only drawback. Overall a nice experience. Would go back for drinks and the view with friends."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Great for pre or post theatre dining. I enjoyed the pork belly for my appetizer, the braised short rib for my entrée and the chocolate panna cotta which I shared with my husband for dessert. Everything was great with wonderful service."

  • "Everyone at this restaurant/bar was incredibly kind and helpful. My favorite bar downtown. The view cannot be beat! The food scrumptious."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Elevator ride up was freightful. Two girls at reception can't seem to communicate effectively with each other. After sunset, the guests had to request that the outdoor heaters be lit. We shouldn't have to ask! It was clear that more professionalism and attentiveness was needed. Filet was not as tender as I thought it would be, but some of the drinks were outstanding! A mixed bag of great and mediocre."

  • "I went with a larger group for happy hour, and we made a reservation ahead of time. Perch got us seated right away! I would have liked to have been seated outside--we had a party of 6 and they told us the table outside was only for a party of 7-8, so we were stuck inside, and the rooftop was closed for a private party so we didn't have an opportunity to really enjoy the view. However, the ambiance was still great, and the food was second to none. We had a great time!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The food was pretty good, but wasn't necessarily the most unique, but let's be fair that LA is a tough/competitive market. Anywhere else and the food would be 4 stars. The ambiance is by far the winning combination they have with the rooftop dining in downtown LA. There was live music when we went (Monday) which added an extra nice touch."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Very nice views from the 15th floor, nice sunny day to have brunch even though they had to use the awning to cover the customers while eating, otherwise it was really hot in the sun. Everything we ate, the french toast, and perch burger were very good. Make sure you have a reservation."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "This restaurant is a Unique experience. Taking a significant other really can add a special touch of romantic. The scenery is something else and their filet minon is just mouth watering. I feel their Caesar salad can improve a bit but overall a great dining experience!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Excellent restaurant with great view! Nice variety of food with good choices on menu. Very happy to go there as there was a great view but needed umbrella moved so the sun wasn't beating down on us. Nice waiters, great variety of food and nice host/hostess. Very happy to be there!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "It's rare to find a restaurant where the food, ambiance, and service all live up to the hype. But Perch definitely does. My friends and I had a great dining experience. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our waiter was attentive and complimentary, which my girlfriends and I really appreciated. Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "If you have someone from out of town or are just looking to hang out with friends after work, Perch is the ideal place. They have live music (mostly jazz) on Thursday nights and people from work flock for drinks and dinner here. The noise level is loud, but that's to be expected with a lively place such as this. The food is great, the drinks are better. If you're looking to enjoy the view--Perch is a great place both during the day and at night. Be sure to try their Sangria if you go there during brunch hours!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "It was great to take an out of town friend for the scene. But, my dish was a disappointment. I had the pan roasted chicken- dry and flavor unspectacular. A little pricey, based on this. My friend enjoyed the short ribs. A limited amount of dishes on the menu. If we had come later just for drinks and the bar scene and band, I would def recommend. Young and fun ambience!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This place is great but the service needs to really be better, they take forever to get to you and take your order but once they do everything is great, I love dining here and the host was very nice and helpful."

  • "It was our first time at this restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday, and it did not disappoint us. When two of your sons work at a fine dining restaurant you cannot help but critique the competitors. Great ambiance and service is very good. Most of the food we ordered were very good specially the duo salmon & halibut and white seabass. I think the only thing that was just average cuz I had better was the tuna tartar. I will definitely return."

  • "Great service and our server Peter was more than we could ask for. The restaurant has accommodated us with desert for cooking our food late."

  • "I've heard great comments on this restaurant. Unfortunately my expectations were not met. I was attended well and the food was adequate but it seems to be missing something. Kind of having a hot date but not quite enjoying her company. I would probably tried it once again to give it a better chance. it was "good" but not "great"."

  • "This place was great, although our waitress and waiter (yes we had 2) forgot about us the first 15 minutes there. They were polite and friendly which made up for that. The food was great except the steak was really dry after requesting medium rare. GREAT HIGHLIGHT, the drinks were fantastic!! :) We requested dessert and coffee to be brought out together after our SEMPE 15 ans vieil Armagnac, but they brought it all out at the same time which made our Doppios and cappuccinos cold by the time we were ready to drink them.. Overall great experience and great for a dinner where you want to converse and have an amazing downtown experience. THE BREAD-PUDDING IS AMAZING!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Amazing food for brunch. loved the ceasar salad & truffle fries. great table with an amazing view. However, the waitress did not pick up our bill for the longest time and so we had to walk it up to the front desk after 20 min. of waiting, it was really rude. we were not accommodated of any sort either."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Our server did come to our table for 30 mins before taking our drink order. Too busy people were standing all over the resturant being extra loud making it hard to hear the person across of the dining table. I excepted better service."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 7th anniversary at Perch LA. The food was incredible, from appetizers, entrees, dessert, wine, and whiskey. But the service is what will make Perch memorable. We have eaten at a number of "fine dining" restaurants. This one, however, is memorable because of the unbelievably kind service. From the guy at the elevator, to the first person who greeted us in the restaurant, and especially our server, Jordan. This place knows how to foster an experience, not just a dinner. Thanks for the great experience Perch! We had a memorable anniversary in your restaurant!"

  • "I love Dtla and I love rooftops. So I decided to try this place for dinner and wow. Exceeded my expectations! The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was classy and nice. A bit pricy but hey I figured it would be considering the amazing view I was looking at while I ate my meal. The cocktails are good too. It's totally worth it. I'll definitely be going back. I fell in love!"

  • "I had heard a lot about this restaurant in downtown, so I finally tried it for my wife's birthday. The restaurant is located at the roof of the building with a great scenic view of downtown buildings. But, little did I know that you had to request for a specific table to get that great view. After we had received our food, our waitress stopped by maybe once to check up on us and kinda disappeared for the rest of the time. my wife wanted salt & pepper since her food was a bit bland but never got it. My poached eggs were good but I found a piece of egg shell in my dish. Lastly, I had placed in my reservation that it was for a birthday but the waitress offered nothing. We left disappointed and wouldn't return after this experience."

  • "Perfect weather, table on the railing. Arrived at 5:15 and stayed for 2 hours (not long enough to enjoy the city lights). Could see the high rise bank buildings, Pershing Square and Angel's Flight all from our table. The food did not disappoint either. BEST brussels Sprouts ever. Entrees were both good. The portions were not "french restaurant small", just right! The Chocolate Pot Creme dessert was delicious and surprising. The sprinkling of salt is genius. Wine pairing with dessert a perfect choice. Also, all of the staff was extremely attentive and engaging. Liked the add on bow ties for the female wait staff. Only disappointment, bar was not stocked with Brandy. We'll definitely be back."

  • "Perch is the heart of Downtown LA & it is quite the hot spot. My friends & coworkers recommended this place to me. Friends came to LA from Orange County & San Diego for this specific occasion. I wanted to see what was all the rage and so planned my birthday dinner here for a group of 10. Perch really lives up to its reputation. The staff were all very friendly & helpful from the get go. They were so welcoming & completely unpretentious, which is different from the LA stereotypes. It was packed & vibrant; and the energy was palpable. It was crowded at the bar & the live band played beautiful classics. We sat at the intimate table for 10. Dinner & drinks were served & fabulous. The view is unmatched. Highly recommended venue. I'll be back."

  • "Spent my birthday dinner here and it was beyond fabulous. The food was amazing, well prepared, delicious and a good variety, as were the cocktails. The service was wonderful, everyone was very attentive, and even when two steak orders came back at the incorrect temperatures, instead of just swapping it with the other person at the table, they really wanted to make it right, took it back and prepared them both again. They swiftly corrected the error and brought some complimentary dishes and just took really great care of us. And the white chocolate bread pudding for my birthday "cake" along with the chocolate whatever goodness that was - wow, party in my mouth. So good. Highly recommend Perch, for a celebration or anything else!"
