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 incredible!
A very generous staff too, we waited a while for our drinks and they comped them. And the. We weren’t in love with our dessert and the manager offered to bring us something else. The food was good, I had the Steak + Frites (so indulgent) and my date had the Chicken Supreme. We also shared the Mac and Cheese...IT.WAS.DIVINE!!! The pieces of bacon...mmm so yummy! Also, keep in mind, I make Mac and Cheese for my catering business and I was impressed.

I observed them doing this with others too.

If you go on a Monday night be sure to check out the band on the patio...Local Honey, they were phenomenal!

Such a non-typical LA dining experience...in the past I’ve visited other eateries only to feel disappointed by the treatment...this was incredible.

I now have a spot to visit when I feel like showing off LA to visiting friends!

An attractive lively atmosphere with excellent food and service. We enjoyed Perch on a Saturday night, so it was very busy and the bar upstairs was quite loud. The staff managed the bustle very well and our table on the outside deck was really special. The mussels, baked brie, scallops, and bread pudding were exceptional.

Had a wonderful table and the atmosphere is excellent. Unfortunately the service and the food was not on point. The server was clearly a beginner and with a party of 6 on a Thursday night at prime dinner hours that was unfortunate. Server was extremely polite but obviously a novice, the wine service was poor; struggled to open the bottle and then took it to another table and poured glad by glass. The entrees were lukewarm and served by the kitchen expediter... and handed to us... not even placed on the table. Sides were not described properly and some of my friends thought they were getting broccolini when actually it was asparagus. I knew we were in trouble when my husband ordered a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and the server said we don’t have those but I can bring you a plate of blue cheese on the side. We did eventually alert the management to these issues, it was better after we did. I’m sad to say that Perch was a disappointment ... I’ve dined before and it was great. It’s sad that I have to doubt whether or not they can deliver next time. I’m not exactly motivated to return.

I took my mom for a little late Mother's Day dinner, our waitress asked if we were celebrating anything and I let her know why we were there. Once dessert time came the waitress surprised us with a candle on the dessert we ordered, such a thoughtful detail. Truly enjoyed the view, the taste of the food and the wonderful service we got. I am looking forward to going back soon.

We loved our evening out at Perch to celebrate our daughter's birthday! This food was truly delicious from our appetizers of pork belly and baked brie, to the short ribs, the steak and truffle fries and the rabbit ravioli through the chocolate pot au creme and the orange creme brulee. T. J. took care of us like we were his family and the view was a beautiful compliment to the outstanding food. The twinkling lights of the buildings seemed as though they came on just for us. What a wonderful magical evening!

Loved the ambience and service was attentive and friendly. Not all the dishes were great, as the quality of the mussel appetizer was sub par (some tasted as if they weren’t quite fresh), but the filet was great and cooked perfectly as ordered. All in all, a very nice place to go on date night.
