We had an aaaaamazing dinner! Everything tasted so good. My favorite "compliments of the chef" were mouth-melting toro (fatty tuna) and juicy clams! We were celebrating a very special occasion with a large group of people, and the owner and the chef made us feel so welcome and at home that we had a wonderful time! I lived in the DC area for 12 years and saw many sushi places come and go, but Perry's has been around for so long, and you know why. One of my most favorite sushi places in the greater Washington DC area!!

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Very classy place. Nice ambiance inside where we ate, but the rooftop was especially great. We just had an after dinner cocktail there but in warmer weather that would be the place to be. Food was good. Not the best sushi rolls I’ve ever had, but solid. Reasonable prices for DC. Would go back.

We've dined at Perry's many times, almost always ordering the sushi/sashimi for two, among other dishes. On our last visit the quality of the fish was lackluster and the quantity appeared to have been reduced. What we once thought was a good combination of quality and price did not live up to that opinion on our recent visit.

The sushi here is top notch as are the dumplings. Be warned, if you order the edamame make sure to specify "no salt." I never send back food however the chef used sea salt on the edamame making it too salty to eat. Our server were very kind in putting in another order with no salt. Another FYI, if you go for happy hour on the roof then want to have dinner, they are not keen on people taking their drinks to their table, even if you have closed your tab. I think it's kind of a silly rule especially if you have closed your tab. I would imagine most people understand that you do not get up from your table once you've been seated to get drinks from the happy hour bar but maybe they've had some bad customers. Also something to note, they will not seat you until your entire party has arrived, even if you have a reservation. I also think this is a little impractical but it's not my restaurant so I do what the host/hostess says.

I might go back for the drinks and the cool vibe. The sushi was not good. Also, they made us wait until all 3 of our party was there to seat us which I feel is undignified and rude.

The rooftop bar/restaurant is always lively and pretty. The menu is not as interesting or inventive as I remember. Far fewer selections than before. But the tuna tartar was delish, and the selection of Japanese whiskeys is a nice touch.

This place is amazing. I loved the atmosphere. I took my Mom here for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We wanted to sit on the roof but it was so windy when we got there we decided to sit inside. Inside the restaurant is nicely decorated. I loved to concept of sitting on couches. It's a very homey feel and just like you're hanging out. The music can get loud after dark on the weekends, but I didn't mind it. We loved it. I can't wait to go back!

We go to Perry's for roof top dining -- and enjoy the food, as well. My only complaint is one I have of many restaurants -- Stop telling me how to read a menu! Luckily we had dined there before and so could skip the lecture on how to order. We loved the crudo, the pork belly skewers, and the fried whole rockfish was superb.

It was hard to choose between the ambiance of the rooftop terrace at sunset or the fabulous sushi and sashimi we had for which we enjoyed most. We were looking for a neighborhood restaurant with good food for our last night visiting my son and his fiance, and I'm so glad that my son found Perry's. The service was friendly, fast, and professional. The food was all perfect. And they had a very good bottle of Sauvignon Blanc for only $33. I look forward to going back again.

The only appeal was the location on a rooftop in Adams Morgan.
Overall ambiance was ok, but not worth the hassle.
Food was below average, and you can get much better quality sushi for a better price in several other places in DC.
Service was slow (about 55 minutes between appetizers being delivered and sushi arriving at the table) and the wait-staff seemed distracted and overwhelmed.
All in all, if you are looking for a nice rooftop experience in Adams Morgan, there are other better options.

Went to Perry's based on recommendation from DC Eater article. Rooftop might be nice, wouldn't know - even with reservation would have been a one hour wait. Ordered the $60 sashimi platter hoping for delicious and fresh cuts of fish. Aside from the scallop, this platter reminded me of why it took so long for me to try sushi. Fish was dried out and smelled fishy to the point of not finishing all of the pieces. On the bright side, the fried soft shell crab and steak skewers were very good.

Would not recommend.

The rooftop ambience is the only thing worth going for. But the service is among the worst you will find it town. And the food menu much worse than it used to be (classics like tempuras and teryakis seem to have disappeared, dumplings are really sour, sushi so so). I wonder whether they are under new management?
So go for happy hour on the rooftop, but then move away.

But let me go back to service. We waited for our edamame appetizer for 30-40 minutes. All tables around us who ordered it way later got it within 5 minutes. We had to asked for it 4 times and it then came after our mains. The mains came at very different times (no warning about it) - even when it was the exact same meal, one came 10 minutes before the other. Odd.
Another one of our appetizers was missing. When we asked for the second time for that too, the waiter said he was told we had gotten it! Once we clarified it had not, they eventually brought it (by the time it came it was like having dessert...) clearly it had been brought to someone else, but they should have just apologized for that!

In the end, no apologies, no free dessert, no discount, and a really disrupted dinner. Never going there again.

First no one came to take our order and then the food piecemeal without rhyme or reason. One person's appetizer and entree came out together while others were waiting for appetizers. The sushi and sashimi, however, were delicious.
