    This is a meal I will think about for a long time. My dinner was so good and I was full, but I HAD to try the dessert. Bc I knew it would be amazing. Every bite was worth it.

    I got a late reservation at the full service bar and am glad I did! First and foremost - the atmosphere was lively (on a Tuesday!). The bartender was extremely knowledgeable and gave some of the best service I’ve ever had. The marrow is an absolute must and the Soppressata pizza was really flavorful. I highly recommend this place.

    Had an amazing first experience at Perch after wanting to visit for a long time. Was able to change my reservation from 4 to 5 via the message feature, which did mean waiting a bit longer to be seated but it was so worth it. Definitely a bit expensive, and parking in the structure across the street cannot be validated ($17 flat rate), but everyone in my group was very impressed with the quality of the food and of course the beautiful rooftop view. The live music outside combined with the voices of everyone from each table does make for a noisy atmosphere if you are sensitive to that — it was pretty busy for a Tuesday night. But we loved our time here and hope to be back for another special occasion soon!

    Our waiter is such a wonderful server. He is attentive, transparent, and thoughtful. He’s an African American gentleman, muddle-aged, and taller than I am, but I wouldn’t put him at 6 feet. He’s perhaps 5 ft. 9 or 10. Also, the food was delicious.
