Perry's rooftop is perfect for a happy hour/dinner on a day with nice weather.

Everything you could ask for when it comes to a nice night out with your significant other. Beautiful rooftop patio with hanging lights, friendly staff, quick and attentive service, and reasonably priced. Will certainly be going back!

I loved the atmosphere. Nicely decorated and good musics. Service was friendly and professional. My kids liked their sushi. I ordered ramen. It looked good but had little taste to it; not nearly as good as several other places that admittedly specialize in ramen

The ramen wasn’t good, it’s like they put it on the menu so they’d have it, but they aren’t going to devote time to it. Chicken wings as an appetizer and also not that great. The sushi, on the other hand, delicious. Should have made that the entire dinner.

The food was great, as was the service....once the bartender began waiting on us. Our best guess is that we were sat just outside of any of the servers’ sections, and as such we weren’t waited on for 35 minutes. Really a shame, as we have had great experiences there previously.

The sushi and sashimi for two was -amazing-. My only complaint was that the nigiri had wasabi hidden underneath the fish and that was an unpleasant surprise for me, as someone who doesn’t like wasabi at all. Otherwise, A+ dish all around!

Small portions with big price tags. They sat us near a window and we were freezing! The fish was good, but full of bones and there was hardly any meat on it.

I have been looking for good sushi in the DC metro area for a while and this seems to be a staple- so I was happy to try it. The sushi was great, really fresh and buttery fish. Yum. Service was okay but they did try to make up for it (we didn't actually express any dissatisfaction) with some free sake which was appreciated. Overall, really solid sushi spot.

Our daughter was craving Japanese food and Perry’s delivered — and then some. Agedashi dofu was fantastic. “Best miso soup ever,” from all. Gyoza, Chesapeake sushi — all so good. It was a bit cool for the roof-top dining, so we sat at the couches by the windows. Perfect start to our trip to DC.

Food was tasty and the roofdeck setting was pleasant but it took over an hour to get our order of sushi... That's a long time to wait for dinner even at a neighborhood restaurant we consider a favorite.

Open table allows you to specify your dining preference when you create your reservation, so I specified "rooftop terrace" for my 7:30 reservation for a party of two. When we arrived, they asked if we had a reservation and I told them we did. We were told that despite my reservation and specific request, in order to be seated on the terrace we would be put on a separate list behind 6 other parties and the wait would be 45 minutes. We were told to go up to the rooftop to speak to the hostess there - we were not escorted up there and it is quite confusing layout. Again, the hostess on the roof asked if we had a reservation, which they had on screen, only to then say that they would text when a table was ready. At this point I really wonder what the point of making a reservation on open table is, what the point of talking to the first hostess is, just show up 45 minutes before you want to eat and get on the waiting list on the roof. I will caution people that there is one particular bartender who is sour and makes it known he does not want to be there or help you with anything. We were actually comped a drink when we asked to switch bartenders because he was about to ruin our night. The other bartender and the rest of the staff are extremely polite and friendly.
