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.

Classy rooftop and restaurant in downtown LA.

Ordered the steak frites and fries. The cut of meat was tender and well cooked but lacked seasoning. Fries were quite cold by the time they got to the table.

My husband & I have dined here before but we decided to bring our young children (2yo & 4mo) for dinner on Father Day. It was lovely, our food came out quickly, it was delicious as usual. The other diners had polite smiles on their face as my son yelled “helicopter” towards the LAPD helicopter several times. Even though service was fast, we didn’t feel rushed & enjoyed the space & people.

Great view from almost any table...I would recommend asking for a table next to the glass railing .
We had brunch and the omelettes were good... although the kitchen forgot to add the mushrooms and cheese to my omelette so the waiter took it back and I was OK Wonderful waiter David wonderful waiter David B. Because of the makes up with the omelette, David poured us both a complementary glass of champagne ,...very nice customer service!
Fun to celebrate a special occasion there... we went on Sunday afternoon and they had a nice little trio playing music .

Food was good and price was reasonable , waiters were nice and food came out good . Hostess had a very rude tone and looked like she didnt want to be there at all and it was kind of noisy , but other than that it was good . View was nice as well.

Initially I had only been to the rooftop bar in the evening. But I decided to take my girlfriend to brunch and celebrate her recent graduation. Our server was very attentive and allowed for a relaxing experience. After brunch we went upstairs to the rooftop bar and enjoyed another relaxing hour with a great view. Definitely planning to return for an evening meal and drink upstairs.

This a lovely place and I’ve been coming here for a while. The food is uneven though with the steak sometimes perfect and other time over cooked. It also be nice if the menu changed a little more often. They could get rid of the Gnocchi and the rabbit ravioli is getting tired. This last time a female guest threw food and hit me in the back. She thought it was funny. I couldn’t find our waiter to complain. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Our waiter was very friendly, and courteous. The only issue I have was in the area that we were seated was very uncomfortable due to the sun shining on us. This was not a direct problem caused by the perch! Other than that we had a great time...

Dear Perch,
My husband and I enjoyed an afternoon brunch on Sunday and had a truly delightful time. The service was outstanding, I’m sorry i can’t remember his name - he wore sunglasses and had a pink checked shirt on. Thank you for the lovely service! The food was delicious and a great value. The ambiance with the jazz simply can’t be beat. My favorite game in town. We live in Pasadena, and this is our sixth visit!
Thank you Perch. A wonderful experience all around!!!

I love the perch. I love that my view are other LA skyscrapers. I go for the French toast and French toast only. The service is amazing and attentive. However, the tables are way tooooo close. I can literally eat off of the plate of the person next to me if I wanted to. I’d like a little more privacy. With the live music and other people talking so close it’s difficult to hear the person right across from me.

Had brunch with a friend on a Sunday mid-day. Making a reservation was a must, quickly seated and table was reserved for us upon arrival. Server was patient, and took her time to give recommendations, etc. Sat on the porch, covered by patio umbrellas, breeze felt wonderful. Recommend the crab cake egg benedicts and the Berry LA drink.

Sunday brunch at Perch Rooftop was amazing. We celebrated our daughter's birthday and Perch made it extra special. Food and drink selection is not only appealing but delcious. We started off with the basket of mixed bread and the baked brie. Woah! Delicious. I had the egg benedict with crab and every bite introduced me to a splendor of flavors. I'm glad I ordered a couple of bellini's to compliment the ambience and the totally cool cats playing jazz. One more thing, I'd like to not only compliment the chef but the staff members that waited on us. They were superstars. We are all happy we spent part of our Sunday at Perch.

Waitress was excellent..

but person bussing/clearing plates was rude and didn’t like that We were still eating .. came by three times to clear our plate... before I was done eating.. “are you done yet? “Twice she said this.
i assume she was also supposed to be refilling water.. because she gave us water when we first sat down. she never came by to refill.

I came here for my birthday with my closest friends. They treated us like royalty. I mentioned to them when I made the reservations that it was my bday and wanted the best seat in the house. They sat us by the fire place and in front of the music. Music was amazing and our waitress was the best. Afterwords we got to go up to the rooftop and had some champagne. It was the best experience ever and I will be returning for brunch.

Only negative is that restaurant calls you to advise it has a dress code, only to notice that it does not seem to be enforced at all. We dressed up, but the people in shorts, tank tops and flip flops did not. Disappointing
