Perrys reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Shadeless rooftop patio
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 5/19/2012
    We booked brunch at Perry's because of the rooftop deck. However, it was a bright, sunny, warm day and there were no umbrellas or shade of any kind. I brought a big hat and sunglasses but other members of my family did not, assuming tables would be shaded. We couldn't even take pics because people couldn't keep their eyes open it was so bright! Should let guest know ahead of time so they can bring shade! Better yet, install umbrellas! Otherwise, great food, service and we had a good time!

    It's nice that Perry's does brunch on Saturdays in addition to the famous brunch on Sundays, but it sure would be nice if they had umbrellas on their rooftop. We wanted to sit outside but it was too sunny and hot the day we were there. We went inside, though, and enjoyed a nice meal with attentive service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    My friends and I arrived near opening for Saturday brunch. There were only a few other full tables, which increased my disappointment with the service. We had to request coffee refills multiple times and ask where our food was as other guests who were sat after us receives their food first. I also requested jelly or butter for our biscuits and after following up with our server twice, nothing was ever delivered to our table. The ambience and food were however lovely, although the poor service certainly affected the overall experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Hmmm. Of course parking is a problem/and or expensive on a weekend. Stairs are a challenge for older people. Wait staff we had was pleasant but lackadaisical. Some of the table placements are very tight and uncomfortable. Martinis were watered down (and took 10 minutes to get to us: maybe that's why?). Seems to be a mecca for "occasions." When we changed from a cramped, drafty table by a window we sat two tables away from what we soon realized was a "boisterous" 8 top of young women who were at the end of a birthday meal, and heavily lubricated with les cocktails. All in all, we ended up having a nice enough time, once the compromised martinis took the edge off. The food is fine; the outdoor terrace must be a draw in nice weather.

    Dined on 2/20/2012
    Interesting mix of sushi and "comfort-esque" food. We focused on the sushi and it was delicious - we particularly enjoyed the special rolls (Phoenix and Fish & Chips). The black edamame was also very good. Dining on a holiday evening, the restaurant was slightly understaffed, so the service was a little slow, but very pleasant.

    It was a coincidence that we chose to go to Perrys the night after Valentine's day, but it was a great coincidence. There was no one there! I imagine if we had gone a day earlier it would've been packed! So we had a nice quiet dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Food was as good as we remembered, although it had been a while since we'd dropped in. Split an order of mussels for appetizer, I had the local blue fish for entree and the boy had the double crab cakes. The skin should've been taken off the blue fish as it wasn't cooked to crispy, so it was just soggy and gave the dish that extra fishiness it didn't need. The crab cakes were very good, very little filler and very tasty.

    Dined on 2/14/2012
    We went on Valentine's Day, not having been in a number of years. With recent good word of mouth plus the V-Day special, we thought we'd give it a try. Notes: 1. The prix-fixe meal was a good value: delicious and good portions. The complimentary sparkling wine was a nice touch. 2. There were numerous patches on the ceiling---touch ups, I guess. The place looked brighter, but less fun and whimsical than I remember it. 3. Our waiter seemed brand new. Very nice, but a bit confused about the menu, and what came and where it went, etc. It did not detract from the meal. 4. We were originally seated at a bizarre table crammed in a hidden corner in the front of the dining room. It should have been the last table offered, not among the first!

    Loved it! Had never been there before, and tried it during restuarant week. We'll be back! The food was spot on, excellent. Even an order for well-done lamb shank (not easy to execute) was met with positive replies, and meat cooked perfectly to order. Service was friendly, humorous, and accommodating. We did not know Perry's was so good, so we are very glad that they participated in restaurant week.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    This was the worst dining experience I've had in a long time. The waiter was inattentive & took ages to get a drink order. The specials were read off a sheet of paper with no enthusiasm. Regular menu items were okay, but nothing special. Fish and chips did not come with either lemon or malt vinegar and was cold by the time these items were fetched. My sushi order was wrong and when corrected was almost inedible. Mushy fish and no spice in spicy ahi. I left half on the plate. Bread pudding was dry and blah. Even mentioning it was a birthday dinner got no response from the waiter. For the same price, please go a couple store fronts down to Cashions Eat Place where the food is great and service fantastic.

Well that was our experience at Perrys Saturday night.

I'm looking forward to sharing this special place with friends!

    As with most Adams Morgan restaurants, parking is a big negative -- adds $10 to your evening, but the lot is right next door to Perrys, and the food was worth it. Everything was fresh -- menu even -- and service was attentive without being pushy. I recommend the chicken under a brick. We ate on the second floor, which was pretty much empty on this Friday night because most patrons had gravitated to the rooftop, Perrys' grand attraction.
