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.

Fabulous Brunch Experience. We arrived at Restaurant an hour early. We were offered to be seated at indoor table, or we we wished to sit outdoors, we would have to wait for our reservation time. We waited and went to their roof top bar. Absolute best decision ever! Lovely rooftop bar with great views of downtown and a great vibe! I had a mimosa, nothing to write home about so i had a white sangria and I highly recommend. At brunch, the food was as expected- Very good, not fabulous. There was a jazz band that was excellent and completed the entire vibe of this place. I would definitely come here again, and next time with family and or friends!

Experience and atmosphere was great until I went to the bar, while waiting to get seated for dinner thought we’d have a drink at the bar to start the night and ended up ruining the night, Asian bar tender was was nice at first but when it came to charging she mad a big deal about the receipts printing out , supposedly that’s the point of the pin pad machine to eliminate receipts, cause now she had to print out the receipts and it wasted her time when she could of been helping someone else, I felt disrespected and confused I just walked away and forgot my debit card, she then yelled Sir with a attitude saying Ummm your card, handed it over and rolled her eyes, it’s crazy how one person can change the mood for the whole night

Staff seem ok but it feels like they are in such a hurry to get you finish your dinner so that they can turn around the table quicker.

My steak was tough. The bread pudding was dry. The staff was a little rough and we were asked to cash out bc our waiter was leaving even though we were not done. I was there for my birthday and it was my first time. Terrible experience. So disappointed.

The staff is amazing! Took care of me and made sure everything was up to my standards and beyond. The food was outstanding and if you ask for a good drink pairing they know exactly what to suggest. I plan to visit perch no matter the occasion anytime I’m in Los Angeles.

Great looking restaurant with horrible food. Brie tasted like bisquick...gnocchi was clearly frozen.

We started off at the bar for a cocktail and were served 2 perfect dirty martinis promptly. The Host texted us that our table was ready right on time with our reservation. The server approached our table immediately and got us another round to start off. He went over the specials but we decided to order off of the menu. We started with the Little gem lettuce and the baked brie. Both were very good, the brie's pastry crust was golden brown and the dressing on the little gem lettuce was delicious. For our entrée
we ordered the Gnocchi and the BOEUF BORDELAISE. We would highly recommend them both and would definitely order them again. We finished off with crème brule. The food, service and ambiance were exactly what we expected and quite frankly thought it was underpriced based on the location.

Our experience at Perch was perfect!
We came in for a special birthday celebration last Saturday night and couldn't have been happier.
Our table was on the patio overlooking the city, the waiter's service was flawless, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was energetic and the views were exquisite. This was our first time coming to Perch and won't be our last. The price for dinner was VERY reasonable for all that you get.

Los Angeles needs more rooftop restaurants/bars like this. There is something very special to enjoy a good cocktail and great food this far elevated above the street. With LA's perfect climate, it seems like a no brainer.
We loved the whole experience. Checking in for our reservation, we were told our wait would be 10 minutes. Just enough time to grab a cocktail on the top floor. A good, energetic crowd was enjoying the sunset and the small, but hard working bar knows their stuff. Best way for me to test the quality of a bar is to order a cocktail off-menu. I usually describe what I like and then see what they mix up. Omakaze style. It was perfect and just in time for the text message that our table was ready.
The restaurant has a limited, but varied menu. Katie, our waiter, was spot on. Always there when you needed her and she knew her stuff. They even have blankets if the LA sunset wind is too chilly.
The food was well prepared, delicious and presented in a nice way. We never felt rushed and were allowed to finish our meat/cheese platter before the entrees arrived. Well done.
We left impressed and are looking forward to coming back

The waitress kept stopping by our table every 2 minutes and did not leave us alone. To go upstairs, they made us wait in line for 10 minutes because they said they are at “capacity”. Checked our ID’s twice!! Although our group of 4 ranged from ages 37 years old to 60 years old . Ridiculous! Then when we get upstairs, the place is almost empty. These people are dishonest!

Oh,, I really liked the place. I didn't know they have a little concert going on. Everything was perfect. Making the reservation was tough.. You need to plan 2 weeks in advance to get the perfect date/time. Other than that, this is the signature place to go in LA.

Aaron went way out of his way to accommodate my wife and I while there. We made a 3:30 res and had no idea it was just brunch, he suggested we go upstairs on the rooftop lounge and come back at 5 and he would have a table for us, which he did. This was an out of town trip for us and My wife really wanted to eat at your place. Aaron and you staff went out of their way. Many thanks!!! I'm telling everyone on FB.

We enjoyed an awesome evening here! Started with a couple drinks on the 16th floor rooftop bar and had dinner afterwards. Bartenders are efficient and friendly! The view is great and a chill vibe. Downstairs the band playing was great and played at the perfect volume for talking over dinner. We shared the surf and turf skewers for an app and for dinner had the salmon and the filet. Both were cooked perfectly and very flavorful without being too salty. Everything was perfect and it was such a relaxing evening. Will definitely return!
