What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.5

One of the original rooftop bars in DTLA, Perch has a French-leaning menu and views for days. Put it on your list for your next downtown date.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

It was my first time, along with my cousin and we were Not disappointed! It was a great first time there. Our server was awesome she was super attentive and she gave us her recommendations which didn’t disappoint either! The view is beyond amazing! We had our table on the 15th floor and then went to the outdoor bar on the 16 th floor which was also amazing. I was a little disappointed with the first drink I tried ,Otto, it was very hard to down but then I tried Le Violet and that was more my taste. The ambiance is super chill and I would definitely recommend going during the evening to really enjoy the scene. Also reservations are a big plus! There was a line to go to the outdoor bar as we were leaving so making reservations really helps!

Obviously you go to this place for the view which is outstanding. Food was good, the octopus was spectacular. Cocktails were good. Service needs help. The first impression we received was at the 13th floor where the doorman/coat checker 'greeted us' with something akin to a grunt and a terse instruction on how to get to the restaurant level. Not a great first impression. We were seated efficiently, which is good. Our waiter, pleasant enough, appeared to lack focus, and our interaction with him was strange to say the least, as he seemed to be in a somewhat altered state. Overall, good fun though and the place is worth a visit based on the ambiance and the octopus alone.

La soirée fut dès plus agréables: la musique, la vue, l’ambiance, etc. Les prix, très abordables également. Cela dit, bien que le personnel d’accueil et de service était fort agréable, dédié ainsi qu’efficace, quelques impairs de services, et à plus forte raison dans un restaurant français, nous font retirer quelques points à l’évaluation. À savoir par exemple, le fait de desservir alors que certains convives (nous étions trois) mangent toujours et de proposer café et desserts. Sinon, un super endroit où il sera bon d’y retourner!! 👍

Very good food-not spectacular but solid. The only knock is the truffle fries. When you see truffle fries on the menu, you get excited. If we weren't so hungry and wanted something to go wit our drinks, they would have been sent back. really disappointing. However the grilled Octopus appetizer made up for it. Plus a great Manhattan.
Amazing view of DTLA. You' almost' think you're in NYC.... Reservations a MUST.

Everything was amazing. The only reason I’m giving 4 stars for service is because we first had a server and she didn’t seem so happy to be serving us. She also took forever to take our order. We had another waitress named Madelyn that took over and she was FANTASTIC! Honestly one of the best severs I’ve had. She made my mother in laws birthday dinner special so a big thanks to Madelyn! She made our night even better. Food was so delicious and so was the champagne. Thank you Perch for the amazing food and for Madelyn! Also thanks for the additional staff that was so helpful bringing out the cake slices! Definitely will be coming back.

Resturant is great but going up to the roof top bar after dinner is a mess. They have a system where they put some people on sofas (to wait to get on the queue) and some others directly on the line, but the line also gets feeded by people waiting outside the building, so it might take a bit or an hour to get there.

Loved everything about Perch except for the beyond terrible Valet parking. Our valet experience was so bad that I won't even go into here. Suffice to say, use a nearby parking structure and/or Lyft/Uber to the Perch building entrance.

Food, drinks and ambiance were all outstanding and very unique, even for L.A. My wife and I will definitely be going back, even if just for a fancy date night.

We had a lovely rooftop pre-show dinner at Perch. We were seated promptly and had a wonderful view of downtown LA. Our waiter was very friendly and our food came quite quickly. The food was also quite well done. Great for a pre-Disney hall dinner...just an Uber ride away.

Service was rushed. When we told the waitress this was our first time, no reaction. She stopped back after with a tray full of drinks for another table, and she said the specials with no emotion. I could only see those drinks and not hear what she said. Bread was cold. Caesar salad had too much dressing and seemed to be all croutons. Gnocchi with chicken was decent. We felt like we were being rushed to clear our table for the next group. View is beautiful.

One of the worst meals I have had. The steak was tough and over cooked even though I asked for rare. The fries were covered in some gelatinous gravy. I think it was particularly disappointing as I had excellent meals at Perch in the past. Looking out over the LA skyline is thrilling but does not make up for the disastrous cooking.

Date night was really soured by the fact that we were placed in a dining outside area that didn't have the best views, table felt like it was shared with another couple because their table had us elbow to elbow and my wife and I could not enjoy a private romantic conversation, which was the reason for selecting this particular restaurant in the first place. Had we checked with other couples, we would have known that they too found this situation particularly disappointing.
The food was perfect, I had Salmon and my wife the filet mignon and it was all cooked to perfection.
We ended up rushing through our meal to get back home, since we had been unable to enjoy private conversation, after being in such close proximity to another couple dining next to us. We would have liked to have stayed a little longer and linger in conversation while enjoying a couple more drinks; had we been given a better table. Sadly this was not the case.
