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.

Came here for a birthday and the restaurant was beautiful. I requested outdoor seating with a view which they gave me but when we arrived it was chilly so they moved us to another table right next to a fire place which was perfect. The food was outstanding and so was the customer service.

The live music was quite nice and the food and cocktails were lovely. The view here is special - particularly at sunset.
But the service was frustrating. I was there with a friend for nearly 3 hours, so we were not in a hurry. Nevertheless, we had to ask over and over again for service. I won't go into details, but we had to ask repeatedly to order and for our check. It ended up coloring what was otherwise a very nice evening.

Excellent in pretty much every way. Went for GF’s B-day. Ambiance is second to none being on the 15th floor patio overlooking DT with a live band playing jazz right behind us to set a perfect mood. Food was great, yet not too pricey. Service was outstanding. An excellent experience through and through.

Great choice for fine dining and unique French food and the view of downtown Los Angeles.
Had good wine selections and appetizer of baked brie, followed by scallops and raviolis- both delicious!
Ended meal with pot of chocolate creme, was very good. Happy they honored reservation time and gave us table with view, also good service by Silva. Highly recommend Perch LA for excellent food and dining experience.

This was my first time at Perch LA for Sunday brunch and I had the most pleasant experience. The service was quick and friendly. Since I made reservations before hand it took us less than 2 minutes to get seated. Once we were seated our waiter was prompt and friendly. It had a great view of Downtown LA and had a comfy feeling to the interior/rooftop (great picture opportunities;) ) Food was to die for and now it to mention the Sangria was just right. Definitely would recommend for any occasion, a must go!

Been to Perch for late-night drinks a few times and enjoyed it, but brunch was sub par. We didn't get our drinks for 45 minutes- after we had already finished eating our appetizers. Barely saw our waitress, though she was pleasant when we did finally get her attention. Food was average, but wouldn't go back.

The late summer night on the patio was great. As the sun disappeared behind the buildings the decorative lights added to the ambiance. The appetizers were delish. Had the octopus and meat and cheese plate. The entree was ok. I had the special which included a steak and mashed potatoes. Nothing spectacular but tasty. Would probably try other downtown spot before heading back again.

My evening at Perch LA couldn’t have been more perfect. I requested a table with nice view when I made reservation and the staff was very accommodating. The food, cocktails, hosts and wait staff were energetic, professional, and extremely helpful with their recommendations for dishes. Good location with valet parking and ideal for visitors attending conferences at LA Convention Ctr.

2nd time there. Brought friends for a special birthday and asked for a nice view table. Note, I booked table a month ahead. Table we were seated at was terrible...view of OLD apartments. Was told that was the best that could be done. Food was not not tasty. Service was excellent! Elevator service was packed and long wait to get down. Not sure I’d go back.

Love this place. Nice hangout. Service was outstanding and meals were tasty. The only reason the food received 4 of 5 stars relates to small size scallops served on my entree. Noticibly different than my prior visit. Highly recommend overall.

Overall great experience! The location and view of the city itself made the trip to downtown worth it. Server was a little disant and gave the impression he didn’t want to be there and wasn’t happy, but our order was perfect so can’t really complain. Excellent food! Overall amazing birthday dinner!

We asked for patio table in the shade (many available) but we’re told the waiters were only attending to the outer tables (which had direct sun). Ended up seating inside. Very slow service there, small portions, overpriced.

We flew in from NY for our anniversary and I wanted to surprise him with a special night. The hostess was very accommodating and secured us an outdoor table(beneath a retractable awming- so cool!) with a lovely view of the city and mountains. Our food was incredible and came at a good pace. The French onion soup was phenomenal. Our server and wait staff all wished us a happy anniversary and even placed a candle in our dessert! Their coffee was also fantastic.

We had an early show downtown and took in the view from the rooftop bar. It was a warm summer afternoon so the umbrellas were at a premium. The drinks were great and the bar busy. They start serving dinner at 5PM the next floor down and it was also very busy for being early. We started with a Caesar salad which was outstanding. My wife had the braised short rib and I had chicken. We couldn't determine which one was better. Flavorful sides and reasonably priced. Nice.

Baby Beet salad was delicious. My friend ordered the scallops and really liked them. I had the steak frites. Steak was tough and the frites were drenched in some sort of truffle sauce/butter. Not to my liking. We had a cocktail each, and a glass of wine each and shared the orange creme brulee. Bill came to $200.00. A tad pricey, but expected as you are paying for the view and ambiance. Service was very attentive.
