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.

I made a reservation through Opentable and unfortunately it would not allow me to accommodate 10 guest. So I had to split the reservation into 2 sections 6 and 4, when Perch LA called me to confirm my reservation I kindly asked if they could accommodate us in one table or tables next to each-other. Unfortunately they told me they could not. Our reservation was at 6:45 pm and we arrived early but enjoyed drinks outside in the open seating area. At that time I kindly asked the hosts to try and accommodate our party of in one table but again my request was declined. I understood their position and asked if we could at least have tables next to each other but my request was denied. We were seated approximately 2-3 tables apart and through the entire dinner there was a table for a party of 4 next to my daughter that was absolutely empty that could have been occupied by us. It was my daughter's birthday and we had to sit away from her and her friends as she enjoyed her B-day dinner and her B-day cake without her parents. I think that better management/organization could have made a better B-day dinner for my daughter.

We had been planning to eat at Perch for many months and this time did it for my Birthday dinner. We particularly enjoy DTLA rooftop dining and bar experiences and chose Perch for this, and liked the reviews that we had seen. The good: good but not great food. We are Vegetarian and there were limited main entrée choices but a good selection of small plates. We had the seasonal salad, beet salad, sautéed brussel sprouts, baked brie, and mushroom risotto. All were very good. We had initial trouble with the small plates being bunched on delivery, and I had to actually ask to return a plate because it was delivered too soon to our filled table. Once I again emphasized that we were small plating and expecting the plates to be paced, they were excellent in adapting, with even the Maitre'd apologizing. The atmosphere was loud, energetic and very young. Overall a very good experience.

The food was great. The only thing I didn’t like was that we were seated too close to another couple and in direct sunlight. I asked if we could be seated in another area, due to the sunlight hitting us directly in our eyes. But we were completely ignored, and no one ever got back to us. My husband was kind enough to trade seats with me, but I just wish we could have been seated in an area where we were both comfortable, not to mention it was his birthday that day. Other than the horrible seating, the food was great and the rooftop bar was too.

Service and ambiance were excellent when we dined there on Thursday. We had a post theatre reservation and were very pleased with the wonderful downtown skyline views. Had a great cocktail and the wine list was also reasonable. We both ordered the Lobster Bisque En Croute mains special and were underwhelmed. The portions were on the small side for a main course and had very few actual pieces of lobster, even for a bisque. The pastry was very decorative but a real pain to eat given that it was almost impossible to chop the thing into edible size chunks. Summary - great service, great location, but a definite miss on this particular entree.

Overall 3food 1service 5ambience 3

The place was pretty,but very over priced for the portion of food. I got the scallops and only got 3 and the price was pretty high. I made reservations for 3 for my moms boyfriends birthday 2 weeks in advance and we got bad seats. Everyone else had more of a view than we did, and had ACTUAL SEATS, we had like a straw mini sofa for 4 people.They give no birthday ANYTHING, yet they wanted to know the occasion online. The service was GREAT, so were our servers but the whole thing just turned out to feel like a waste of money and we all didn't get full. I mean sure for some people who have a lot of money to throw maybe its okay but for people who want SOME FOOD and more than a small portion for an expensive price NO, NOT OKAY, and amazingly enough NO FRENCH BREAD? that's crazy. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone. The Standard hotel turned out to be a better view and their restaurant "The Restaurant" turned out to be far more impressive and even the meal portions and prices were wayy better.

We went for our anniversary and it was the perfect environment, not to loud but lively enough to still be fun. The rooftop bar and outdoor dining is beautiful and the food was delicious. It's on the expensive side but worth it for a special occasion or if you wanna spoil yourself!

The view and the band music were amazing.
I didnt like the food except the appetizer octopus and tuna tartare...
They serve the amazing yummy octopus!
It really came out steamed two long legs of octopus lol
Insta food for definitely!
Tuna tartare wasnt too salty. It was just right!
And eat it with chips and avocado...omg amazing..
Dessert, I really love white chocolate bread pudding.
I tried it at Ruth Chris, Alcove, Royce restaurants too.
It was almost good as Royce s bread pudding.
If I go there again, I would get the double orders of Octopus and Tuna Tartare!
Lastly, I m 100% sure I will get the white chocolate bread pudding for one person each!!
Go for it!!!

We were wowed! The service, the food & drink quality, and the ambiance was superb and we can’t wait to come back for another special evening! Definitely needed a reservation but worth every bit of the wait! The valet was hard to get to & a bit overpriced in my opinion, but that won’t stop us from coming back! Thanks Perch!!

super unfortunate, place has gone down hill. Salad wilted, place looks tired, service inconsistent (had to seek out waiters, and though well meaning and genial it’s obvious management doesn’t have the same sense of standards from 5yrs back [last time I was in town]).

London was a great server. She was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was tasty but maybe not worth the price, however, I completely understand you’re paying for the ambiance here. All in all it’s a great spot to take out of towers or to treat yourself.

Perch was full of 30s-60s colourful, creative looking people and the atmosphere was so nice! Live jazz music played in the background of our Friday night dinner and the noise level was a little high due to the crowded bar (seemed like quite a busy yet sophisticated singles scene.) The food was above average and the service was stylish. A special place definitely recommended!
