The food and vibe was great! But, i felt a little uncomfortable with my server. He came to my table, didn’t introduce himself, and just practically rushed us to order our food. Once we got our appetizer, he asked us to order our entrees. Let us eat our appetizers first sir!!! He didn’t even ask if we were ready for the check, he just printed it out himself and gave it to us like he had no option.

Our waitress was so nice! And overall the service was great. However, us three all got salads, and we ended up spending over $50 with a 20% tip. That would be overpriced but understandable if the salads were good, but they really weren’t anything special. My salad was just soggy romaine and some croutons (I got the cheese and dressing on the side), and it was nothing great. My friend also got the Ceaser salad but got everything in it and also agreed it was nothing great and had the quality of a pre packaged salad. On top of that my friend, sister and I were sick with stomach issues all throughout the night from what we believe to be our salads, or more specifically potentially old cheese or salad dressing. I would reccomend this restaurant because I really liked the ambiance and service, but urge you to order something other then a salad!

Food wasn’t fresh at all. Dined here numerous times. Short ribs taste freezer burned. Whatever potato cake that accompanied the ribs were horrible. Taste like an old fried piece of frozen potato. Very disappointed. Drinks weren’t good at all.

Fabulous and easy meal and cocktails before a concert. Service was spot on. The duck spring rolls is worth the visit alone but the beef short ribs were super too.

The wait staff was courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. The ambiance was excellent. Not too dark that you can’t see your food. Not too loud even though the bar area isn’t far from the table. Food was cooked to perfection. The bread board is to die for! A little pricey but not too bad. I highly recommend.

Met 2 friends for brunch on a Sunday morning. It was so quiet and empty when we got there that it felt like a private meal - which we loved - but tables filled up over the next hour and it got kind of loud. Food was very good. We got the latke fries, which were quite good but needed more sour cream and applesauce! Eggs Benedict had poached eggs cooked perfectly. Would definitely go back.

I cannot say my experience was exceptional as it was Valentine’s Day and I was hoping for a beautiful night with my wife and 4 month old. However, there was so many things wrong.
1. My server was unkept in appearance and would often disappear and return reeking of cigarettes.
2. My appetizers came with no plates, my wife’s dish came with no bread (she ordered duck) and my steak had to be sent back because it was well done (I ordered medium). I also had to request a steak knife.
3. Lastly I order dessert and it never came.

My recommendation - come for the movie but leave the restaurant alone

Service good. Not a table cloth restaurant, so perhaps more of a date restaurant than an occasion restaurant. . A good value. Try it, and make good choices!
Crab cake appetizer was delicious.
Long Island duck was perhaps the best I have had.
Braised Short Ribs were OK, but aren't they always just OK??
A lemony desert cake was delicious.
Margarita passable.

Not sure when they changed the food quality at City Perch. It has been over a year since our last visit. In that time their bread plate got much sweeter. The corn bread might as well have been a desert cake. The biscuit was also Ro sweet and then covered in honey. The duck spring rolls were cooked in oil that was likely not hot enough as they came out oily yet not browned nor crunchy. Our salad also had a cloying sweet dressing. My last visit there for sure. Service on the other hand was friendly and attentive.

Must get the breadbasket, it's a terrific surprise to your mouth. One bread even tastes like cake! Loved the ambiance at the restaurant and the food overall was delicious. I highly recommend the brussel sprouts, gonna pass on the cauliflower next time though. Only rated this as 4 stars as we lost our waiter towards the end of the night.
