I first visited 20 years ago. Have visited many times since. The food and service have been consistently great. An impossible accomplishment for most restaurants. I will return.

We ate on the upstairs rooftop dining area. The ambiance is energetic but still quiet enough to have a nice dining experience. The appetizers, cocktails and sushi were perfect. Highly recommend.

I like Perry's except the host for the rooftop was kind of rude and my boyfriend's salad had dirt in it.

Only advice to bartenders/ waiters: Greet the customer. The customer shouldn't have to "try" to get your attention.. especially when not that busy

We had so much fun at restaurant week! We were seated on the roof, service was quick, they were helpful in explaining the menu. All of our courses were delicious especially the sushi. Can't wait to come back!

I would definitely recommend the rooftop deck however, I wasn't extremely impressed by the food. It was just O.K. Service was great tho. Not sure if I would be giving it a second shot.

I think our waiter was new, that's all. Everything else is terrific about this venue. Parking is a huge problem and the restaurant should make suggested options

Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. The bar scene is lively so if you want a more quiet dinner sit across the room. Its a beautiful space; a bit more conservative now than in years past but some people like that. On the menu the prawns are outstanding. Perry's feels as fresh as any newly established restaurant, great to see it is still doing good business. Can't say enough good things about the service - everyone seemed genuinely warm and relaxed (but still fast and attentive). Looking forward to going back.

Our server, Ivan, was fantastic. He was very attentive, gave great recommendations on food and drinks, and made sure we were happy with all of our selections and seating arrangements. He made a great dinner and rooftop experience even better!

Visiting from out of town. Ordered Miso soup and edamame and the sushi and sashimi combo platter. Miso was overly salty but the rest of the meal was great. Sushi and sashimi were silky and smooth and wait staff was attentive and not overly solicitous. And it did not take a long time for dinner to arrive which has not always been my experience in sushi restaurants. Nice job

The atmosphere was so beautiful and classy! We were celebrating my birthday and at the end of the amazing dinner they brought out my dessert with a sparkler on top. We created a wonderful memory there! Loved the food, service and of course, that view.

Perry's is one of the best, and best managed, restaurants in Adams Morgan. The staff are wonderful, the food is great, ambience is classy but laid back and very comfortable, decor is tasteful. What more could you want?

This restaurant had a very lovely atmosphere and a beautiful rooftop. My dinner guest and I found the food to be good but not unique and memorable. The chicken wings we ordered came out cold and kind of mushy and when we sent them back our waitress was very gracious, but then she came back with mushy wings again. The employees at this restaurant are very very nice and accommodating but again, we felt like you could get this food at any decent restaurant. It’s all about the rooftop for this place.

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
