Perry's on Union Street reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Always a favorite of ours
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/15/2013
    Always a favorite of ours in the neighborhood. Service, food and atmosphere never disappoint. We love the artichoke appetizer and crab cakes. Salads are always tasty and you can't go wrong with their burger and chicken BLT.

    Perry's hasn't changed much over the years and overall I don't want it to. I don't come to Perry's for the great foodie experience - but the food is really really good "bar" food, they have a above average wine list and they pour a fabulous cocktail. I "grew up" there OK so that was in my 20's & 30's)in the 90's and have some wonderful memories of great times with friends. Still love to get together there with the same friends to laugh over old times and think about the good times yet to come. Please don't change. We love you just the way you are!

    Perry's is a nice spot, reminding me of the old bar/restaurants in Chicago. The food was good but the service was not. The owner(?) and other front of house staff were not very welcoming at all. They might have at least smiled, said "Merry Christmas" or at least "Thanks" as we left.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/15/2012
    I have been dining at Perry's since I moved to SF 45 years ago. It's a consistant 'stable' place to go. Food remains of high quality; staff are welcoming; service is quick but not pushy; they allow you time to chat & choose your meal. I was with an elderly woman on a walker. She chose to sit in the back as it was quieter there than in the front & we were the only diners there. We were left alone but never ignored. In fact, Emily,our waitress is a wonderful, caring young woman. She provided excellent service & is a kind human being. We love Perry's & know we'll get the same high level of tasty food & service whenever we dine there.

    I had only been to Perry's for brunch, so I decided to try it for dinner. It was extremely crowded and loud. Food and service were okay. I think I will stick to brunch only at Perry's.

    Sorry not to be more positive, as I know Perry's has been on Union St. for a long time; however I was disappointed in the food. I had a very mediocre Caesar salad and as to the fish & chips, the batter was very thick and the fish not very good. Our waiter, however, was pleasant and accomodating, so the service outdid the food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP

    Sitting outside on a beautiful day was nice. But I ordered the Chinese Chicken Salad which was very spicy! Also there was no lettuce in the dish it was made out of noodles. I think the server should have told me about the spice and the noodles. I actually asked her about the taco salad or the chinese chicken salad. She wasn't helpful at all! I couldn't eat it! The server was very flippant with us and did not make us feel very comfortable or welcome. All in all it wasn't a very good experience!

    We really enoyed our lunch. The clam chowder is the best I've had in San Francisco. My husband loved the meatloaf. We will be back. Oh, yes, the wine by the bottle at half price was a real pleasant surprise, too.

    Requested a table in the bar and while we knew it was just a request, there was nothing available. We offered to wait but the hostess told us we had to be seated in the back. Then they cancelled our reservation via open table. Not super happy. Food isn't great, but our service, I think his name is Said is awesome. Been there tons of times and it just seems to be getting worse every visit.

    A bit of delay seating us. Tables were open, but apparently the hostess was dealing with a large group in the back. When she was ready for us, apparently someone else had already checked in under my OpenTable reservation! No problems thereafter, however. Waiter recommended we get the discounted bottle of wine, which cost the equivalent of two glasses. A good deal! Service was prompt, and the food was good.

    Went to Perry's for brunch on a Sunday morning. The menu has a decent amount of choice. The ambiance is good...but best for watching football/boozing in the front of the restaurant (rather than in the sun room/back). Overall though, the food is fine just pretty uninspired and bland. I would not go back for brunch unless suggested by someone else.

    My first visit to Perry's was in 1972. Over the years i have visited Perry's, but rarely because I live near Santa Cruz. On Sun., my son ran in the SF Marathon, and I thought Perry's would be great for after the event. And, it was. I was glad we had a reservation, nice table in the sunroom, great lunch, service, etc. Now my daughter wants to spend a day shopping on Union St. with linch @ Perry's!

    I've eaten here many a time... it is not exceptional food, but generally very good. Today we shared the Ahi Tuna app, which was pretty darn good, and I had the vegetable frittat... it was greasy, sadly lacking in veggies, and more of an omelette than a frittata. But, it was plentiful, I will give it that. Service was impeccable- my iced tea glass was filled before I ever reached the bottom!
