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.

An attractive lively atmosphere with excellent food and service. We enjoyed Perch on a Saturday night, so it was very busy and the bar upstairs was quite loud. The staff managed the bustle very well and our table on the outside deck was really special. The mussels, baked brie, scallops, and bread pudding were exceptional.

Had a wonderful table and the atmosphere is excellent. Unfortunately the service and the food was not on point. The server was clearly a beginner and with a party of 6 on a Thursday night at prime dinner hours that was unfortunate. Server was extremely polite but obviously a novice, the wine service was poor; struggled to open the bottle and then took it to another table and poured glad by glass. The entrees were lukewarm and served by the kitchen expediter... and handed to us... not even placed on the table. Sides were not described properly and some of my friends thought they were getting broccolini when actually it was asparagus. I knew we were in trouble when my husband ordered a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and the server said we don’t have those but I can bring you a plate of blue cheese on the side. We did eventually alert the management to these issues, it was better after we did. I’m sad to say that Perch was a disappointment ... I’ve dined before and it was great. It’s sad that I have to doubt whether or not they can deliver next time. I’m not exactly motivated to return.

We loved our evening out at Perch to celebrate our daughter's birthday! This food was truly delicious from our appetizers of pork belly and baked brie, to the short ribs, the steak and truffle fries and the rabbit ravioli through the chocolate pot au creme and the orange creme brulee. T. J. took care of us like we were his family and the view was a beautiful compliment to the outstanding food. The twinkling lights of the buildings seemed as though they came on just for us. What a wonderful magical evening!

Loved the ambience and service was attentive and friendly. Not all the dishes were great, as the quality of the mussel appetizer was sub par (some tasted as if they weren’t quite fresh), but the filet was great and cooked perfectly as ordered. All in all, a very nice place to go on date night.

From the minute I saw the views, i knew we were in for s great dinner. IG photo shoot was being held next to our table, that was the only complaint. But I get the reason why though. The jazzy musician singing in the background made the atmosphere on the 13th floor feel like a different time. It was smooth, sexy and delicious. All of it! I will definitely be coming back.

I will definitely recommend this restaurant to other people. Everything was delicious, however, we ordered the filet mignon and short rib and the meat itself was lacking the flavor we desperately wanted. Everything else on the plates like the garnish was amazing. What was really to die for was the white bread pudding. I never had a bread pudding so delicious in my whole life.

The food is just ordinary . Really nothing special . Ordered the steak and fries and the steak was smothered with sauce . The steak special was slightly better. But for the price I think you should expect better quality of food.
We have reservation , and got there on time and still have to stand and wait for another hour .
The place was nice, cozy set up. Ambiance is the key here . That’s what you are paying for .
The music does not play all the time , they play several songs and take a break.
As for Roof top, I have seen a better one. But it’s nice and they arrange cozy set up with small fire places on every tables. Unfortunately not enough chairs . A lot of people just standing there .
