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.

View was beautiful, came here for a nice Sunday dinner at a place that stayed open late. All the workers are friendly and funny. Second best view, i would rate 71 and above a bit better

Overall the experience at the Perch was a very good one. The ambiance was great, the service was great as well, the server gave you time to look through everything and the service was fast as well.

We came here to celebrate our daughter's 25th b-day. We initially planned to go to the Little Door, but decided to go for a little noise, airy / open, live music, eclectic and nice view. The view and atmosphere is great, since I am an avid cook and have traveled to France I am not very impressed with the food, it is not bad but average, we did enjoy the octopus and drinks. However, the service is outstanding (Waiter, server, busboy) and the Manager came over for a chat and offered us complimentary champagne for my daughter's b-day. We enjoyed the live entertainment and stayed a bit for a couple of drinks, good overall experience, the only flaw is that we found the hostess standoffish.

Fine dining at it’s outdoor best! Great meal in a great atmosphere. Sitting on the patio with views around LA is awesome. The mussels appetizer is outstanding. The steak frites was excellent and perfectly cooked. Both the Brussels sprouts and cauliflower sides were also outstanding. Service was very attentive but not at all intrusive. Overall, a wonderful pre-theater dinner.

Did a Birthday brunch with me and my best friend. Excellent service and my French Toast was probably the best I’ve had thus far from any restaurant. Definitely would go back for brunch. I’ve been to Perch for dinner (which is really good too) and just cocktails love it. And it’s reasonably priced.

I do not recommend perch to any friend because i was disappointed. Food was cold and the quality of food was not good compared to the value.
We were promised a table with a view, instead we got a table behind a tree so the view was covered.

Great experience overall. Except for the bartender at the upper bar. Really rude. We had a conversation with the manager and the head of security about his behavior. We would have stayed longer but because of this rude bartender we left earlier. They should change him.

Garden like beautiful surroundings on top of the Gorgeous Pershing Square building downtown. Food is good but not outstanding. Very extensive and interesting cocktail menu. Service is a little slow despite an early dinner time. But the staff is pleasant. The rooftop bar is beautiful but it is a zoo, packed all the time. Come very early or very late. Otherwise don’t come.

I went to Perch to celebrate a friends birthday. We were looking for a more upscale place so we were actually pleased there was a dress code. It wasn’t enforced consistently, but whatever. My only complaint was with my meal. I got the chicken supreme and to my dismay, the chicken was incredibly dry-not something I would expect from this establishment. I wanted to send it back, but it took forever before we saw our waiter again. The only saving grace was that once we did see him, the mistake was rectified quickly. The second chicken was better, but still a bit dry. I didn’t have the energy or patience to try and get it right the third time. Ambiance was amazing. The rest of our meal was wonderful. The ahi tuna tartare was amazing, as was our desert. I would visit again, I just wouldn’t get the chicken.

I went to Perch Tuesday night for my 21st birthday. The employees were incredibly friendly and really made me feel special. As if the food quality and the ambience wasn’t enough to impress me, everyone went above and beyond to make my night special. Will definitely be back soon!

Afternoons in downtown LA are very windy. So, unfortunately, it makes early evening dinners on the beautiful terrace a little unpleasant.

Because it's such a cool location with good food, it's also very touristy. So, I'd recommend it to folks who've got out-of-town visitors. (That's why we went:-) They'll be impressed!

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 .

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)_/¯
