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.

I had a really good time at this place. The food was good the atmosphere was nice the only bad thing when your done eating your server just leaves . But the person in charge around their went above and beyond and give us a blank it was cold and put us next to the Cozy fireplace which was really nice romantic since it was my wife's birthday overall good experience will definitely go back.

Magical setting. Enthusiastic and friendly staff. Speedy service. Delicious food. Generous portions. With classy live music pitched at the right volume and mood. It was the perfect night out at a restaurant that went out of its way to impress, but without any attitude or ego. A+++

The drinks were great. The food was good. We had the ahi tuna (5), fromage since we had two types of goat cheese, we barely touched it. Gouda is the best and we only had two thin slices of it. The creme brulee was not the best and the spice was too strong for me, so thats 3 stars. The service was a bit lacking though we saw the manager more often than usual. The view was nice. The rooftop bar oddly enough was too warm and stuffy due to the amount of people. There were not enough seats. Overall, it was good experience.

Just for the experience. I found the food ok for the price. The service was extremely slow. I’ve gone once and don’t plan on returning. The need to rethink their floor plan because bodies are everywhere blocking paths to restrooms, elevators, patio seating, and exits.

My wife and I had not been out on a date in months between children schedule conflicts it just seemed to never work out. March 16th was finally a date set aside for me to take my wife to a wonderful lunch with great food. Upon our arrival we were graciously greeted by a female who asked us how we were and if we would like any drinks. We ordered drinks and moments after that a male waiter arrived and took our order. My wife and I noticed our experience at the establishment not going well when our waiter began asking several customers around us multiple times if they were ok or needed anything, but did not ask us. My wife and I brushed it off the first two times we were ignored and after while we noticed he constantly asked the couple sitting next to us if they were ok the waiter even asked the group sitting behind us if they needed anything. I don't know if it was because the couple next to us were older an white an the group behind us had all females, but we felt ignored and singled out. My wife and I sat and ate our food trying to figure out why we were not good enough to be asked multiple times as everyonelse was if we needed anything. The waiter eventually came an asked twice as we were nearly done if we needed anything. The food the view and ambiance was amazing. I would just say for future reference to tell that waiter specifically an staff to make everyone feel appreciated an attended to especially if we are spending our hard earned money to enjoy the service. Thank you for inquiring about our time at your establishment

Understand. This place appeals for the rooftop vibe and ambiance that I get. However on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 1145, I came here with my wife for brunch and Perch was okay for a rooftop dining experience. What falls short was the food was really bland, expected and nothing to really talk about giving the food was just so so. I really had expectations and Perch did not do it. Another issue was the valet parking. At $13.00 for valet, I waited 45 minutes to get my car. The excuse was its DTLA and traffic was bad. Not a whole a lot of confidence in Perch's valet service. But hey Perch work on updating your menu please. I mean really do. Just a thought!

I really liked Perch the overall ambiance was great with a life band that played 1920s music also our waitress London was great! on the other hand we ordered lychee martinis and they didn't have then we ordered a house cocktail which tasted like lemonade and my bfd had a pear martini which was bitter instead of sweet we ended up ordering champagne to be safe. Its not a cocktail bar that's for sure. As for the food my bfds food was great he ordered the octopus and the tuna. I wanted the mushroom risotto but its not GF and also their dedicated GF frier was down so i couldn't have those as well. I ended up having a 21$ plate of veggies it was good but boring. They should have better GF and veggie options.

The wait is finally over! My wife and I have wanted to try The Perch LA for a long time now and at long last, we were successful. After a short ride up the elevator, we noticed an amazing city view. We sat under the stars and moon and had a wonderful dinner with a live jazz group included. I wanted to try everything on the menu, but settled for filet mignon, which was magnificent. Wonderful!! Service was great as well and plenty of security around the building. I would recommend making reservations for dinner, but maybe you won't need them if you plan to go up to the rooftop bar. Have fun!

It was beautiful night and
the food was surprisingly delicious. I half assumed the restaurants popularity was based on its views as there are lovely cityscapes from the 15th floor but the food was equally as good as the evening skyline!

Beautiful location, food was great as was the service. Be warned, the rooftop is breezy and for us very cold. Dress appropriately, as the veranda temperature reduced our enjoyment of dinner, even with “leg blankets” and heat lamps lit.

Food at the restaurant was brilliant! Music was low key and inviting. Loved every minute we spent there! Will definitely be back to both the restaurant and bar!

We had a great dinner experience at Perch La. We were greeted by everyone which made the visit even more enjoyable. Jade our server went above and beyond to explain what was on the menu and even allowed us to substitute sides. Please try the truffle fries and don’t forget to go to the rooftop for amazing views!

Wait staff PERFECT. we didn’t get seated until 30 mins after reservation. We did arrive 45 mins prior, listened to the music which was great but the crowd was packed while waiting two tables stood empty the entire time we waited.
We have been coming almost since it opened. I think they need to update the menu. Now we’re only coming for the view

The food tasted delicious and came out much faster than I thought it would. Our table was outside and it was super cold. Unfortunately, they could not turn on the heaters, but they provided us with blankets. I have never had a restaurant provide blankets and that made my experience 10 times better or I would have been shivering. I would with no doubt come again, even on a very cold day.

Great location, great view, food was great , service was great however, kitchen ran out of fried calamari and the top roof bar was pretty full, try to go early if you’re trying to sit down and enjoy the view with some drinks to get a good spot. Other than that it was a great experience...

I have longed to dine at Perch ever since I learned of the outdoor, rooftop dining. Recently, we had the opportunity and I was so looking forward to it. Unfortunately, we went on a rainy day, so everything was closed up-overall experience was not as great as it could have been, I imagine. The decor was not as nice as I had anticipated, kind of outdated, maybe? It was also very dark and very noisy at our table-hard to see the food and hard to have a conversation-but this was at the end of Happy Hour, which once it passed, things got a bit quieter. It is a very busy place though, throughout the night. Food was not memorable (had the salmon dish), but the waitress was outstanding and personable. Would I go again? Maybe my expectations were too high? Maybe I would give it another try on a dry summers night!

I had heard so much hype about this place that I was quite surprised by the poor service. It's not that it was inattentive - just, basically, incompetent. I felt as if the people working in the place had never worked hospitality before, and also had a poor understanding of the menu. It has the feel of a restaurant that's been resting on the allure of its view for too long, and has gotten lazy everywhere else. A real shame, because the venue has such great potential.

Beautiful place. I got the steak frites and it was so amazing! Also got the creme brulee - wow. It’s infused with rose water and just tastes amazing. Also loved the live music. The restaurant was extremely well staffed and organized. Loved the roof top ambience as well. There was no street parking so we paid for valet. Cash $13. Worth it!!

Literally every thing we ordered was delicious except the Mac n cheese that was a let down. We got pork belly, short rib, truffle chicken, octopus and brussel sprouts. This is the best overall food experience we have had in a while and we try somewhere new every weekend. You absolutely cannot beat the atmosphere. Service was ok except they forgot our sides until our meals were finished

For a high end restaurant it was very affordable. Food was great, the salad that comes with the scallops is probably the best salad I’ve ever had and the view just makes the experience unique. Worth it 100%. Friednly service as well.

Nice design and ambiance. Food reminded me of hotel restaurant food. Table next to me was very loud but rest of the restaurant was at a normal level. I ate my dinner fast since it was so loud and had dinner elsewhere. I might go back there for the ambiance in the future.
