                                    Got to dine at Perilla for the last time, my fourth meal there, on their last night of service. Such a same to see this place go. Service has been incredible every time I've dined there, and the food has always been top-notch, and incredibly fairly priced given the quality you get. On our last meal thewre, my wife and I started with the schupfnudeln and crudo. I didn't get to try the crudo because she polished off her plate before I could give it a taste, but thankfully she doesn't eat bacon so I got the schupnudeln all to myself, and it might have been the best dish I've ever had here. Such an incredibly potent punch of acid from the white wine-tarragon, and the bacon was included in just the right amount to add smokiness and salt without turning the dish into just another bacon dish. For entrees, I went outside my tradition of ordering whatever duck is on the menu, a meat that Perilla prepared as well as anywhere in the city, and went with a hangar steak with rutabaga creamed spinach and hen of the woods mushrooms with a shallot puree condiment. The meat was perfectly medium rare, if a tiny bit oversalted, and the sides were great. A nice composite of a traditional steakhouse dinner. My wife had a goat cheese mushroom and leek tart, served more like a mille-feuille, with thin, delicate layers of pastry separating the fillings. It was delicious, rich, acidic from the goat cheese, and the vegetables were all perfectly prepared and balanced. For dessert, we got a butternut squash custard and our amazing server, Nick brought us out a trio of sorbets on the house, all of which were delicious. So sad to see this place go. My wife and I had dinner here the night we got engaged, then came back for her birthday and had an amazing tasting menu, and now, almost 6 months to the day after our wedding, we had our last, delicious meal here. Unfortunately, another story of rent increases hurting NYC restaurant industry. Looking forward to Harold's next project.

                                    I've been coming here since Chef Howard opened it 9 years ago. I am so sad to see it closing. The food and experience have always been exceptional.

                                    Unfortunately, this restaurant is closing on Saturday, 5 December. I have had many, many delicious meals here, brunch and dinners. I will miss Perilla very much.

                                    I was visiting my son in NY and Perilla was a great choice for our Saturday night dinner. The hostess, bartender, and waitstaff were extremely accommodating, the atmosphere was lively while still allowing us to talk, and both the roasted duck and fish special were delicious. Perilla's cornbread is really good too!

                                    I researched on line first, the sight didn't do the restaurant justice. The atmosphere and lighting were amazing. The service was friendly and timely. The hostesses were very attentive, and our server was knowledgeable and helpful. The food and drinks were very tasty and the prices, reasonable.

                                    Perilla is one of those reliable gems that you can count on for delicious food, excellent service, and all-around delight. My date and I went through a bit of a ticket mix up and the staff at Perilla were most accommodating about clearing it up and keeping us informed. The kitchen even sent out a new terrine dish the chef was working to perfect as an apology for the mix up. Excellent food. Excellent wine. Excellent service. I wouldn't expect anything else from Harold Dieterle's Perilla.

                                    We had a lovely dinner. The service was excellent. Nice atmosphere. I would definitely return.

                                    Service and food were very good. Only downside for me was that there was no Chardonnay by the glass. However, our server was very patient in allowing me to try five wines before I found one I liked. They split the salad we were sharing on two plates which is so simple but many restaurants do not think of this..even when you tell them you are going to share something. All in all a pleasant experience...would definitely go back.

                                    Perilla has been a favorite of ours since it opened. Now that we have moved from NYC to NJ, we still make a point to visit at least each season. It is so nice to go back to a place and be impressed by the food and service - still after all of these years. It is fantastic!!

                                    Every flavorful bite validated why Harold won Top Chef. Amazing food experience! Orlando was a personable and attentive server. Entire experience was on point. A little challenging to find for non-locals, but worth the short hunt.

                                    Our third visit -- and there will be more. Consistently excellent and inventive food with unexpected twists that don't try too hard to be clever, just flavorful and satisfying. Service uniformly friendly yet professional. Had to change my reservation time at the last minute and was accommodated cheerfully and helpfully. If you like HD's The Marrow on Bank Street you'll like Perilla, and vice versa.

                                    I came for the second time to one of Perilla's Kitchen Notebook Menu dinners, where the pre-fixe menu is selected from Harold's cookbook. For the second time, it was phenomenal. Every course was fantastic, as was the wine pairing, and the staff is a delight. And frankly, I think the tasting is a little underpriced for the quality of what you get. Love it and coming back (again).

                                    We chose Perilla because of the chef Howard Dieterle and we were not disappointed. Well, our only disappointment was that we couldn't choose the tasting menu because the third person in our party wasn't on board with it. I had the spaetzel app which was served as a warm salad with a poached egg on top, the other two chose the chilled cucumber melon (with jalapeño) soup and we were all very pleased. My entree - duck breast was served with an orange marmalade which was more of a paste. I normally do not enjoy fruit wit my protein but this was fantastic. We all enjoyed the blueberry cheesecake sundae dessert as well. My wife and I will return some day for the tasting menu.

                                    I'd only been in for dinner at the bar and after dinner drinks. This was our first time visiting for a meal, and it was fantastic. We ordered off of both the regular dinner menu as well as one of the specials. The flavors and choices offered were very complimentary to each other -- I'm glad that we chose to celebrate a special occasion with dinner at Perilla.

                                    Perilla is a solid third date (or second date if you're aggressive) restaurant. Great ambiance, food is always spectacular, and it won't put TOO big a hole in your wallet (entrees ~$30, appetizers ~$12). Get the steak and the duck meatballs -- I once had a date rave for 20 minutes about how it's one of the best steaks she's ever had.

                                    Service excellent, food good, interior decor boring, external decor offputting and grotty.

                                    We've been to Perilla several times, and it never disappoints. Exciting, vibrant flavor profiles served professionally in an understated, romantic setting. There are consistent favorites, like the spicy duck meatballs, as well as new, seasonal items, like the chilled cucumber soup, both exceptional. Highly recommend!

                                    The Waitress and server was in a hurry. Small plate taste better then main course.

                                    I went with a group of friends for Restaurant Week summer 2015. This was my 4th time at Perilla and the first for RW. The food is always spectacular but this time it went beyond. I had the cucumber soup with watermelon croutons that was outstanding. The farm raised roasted mushrooms with bamboo risotto was like nothing I've ever eaten before. The lemon verbena mousse with blueberry compote and gingersnap cookies was out of this world. There is a reason Perilla is one of the few places in the City I return to over and over and it's because the food is so consistently amazing. Service was very attentive, making sure our water glasses were always full. I look forward to my next meal at Perilla.
