Our first time and the first words from our server was “I am so sick”. We should have just left. The server could not describe or suggest menu items. Food was good but the atmosohere of eating in a bank lobby was not a great experience. Probably a better experience when weather is warm and can eat on the terrace.

Had the flatbread. Tasted good; would have been better if it had been warm/hot. Served room temperature. Wine list for cabernet very weak---but $5 happy hour was a bargain.
Virtually no one else there; one other table utilized in the entire restaurant.
Two things to go for: the view and the happy hour.

Had tickets to the Bass Hall & this is the perfect restaurant to grab a quick bite because your food is on your table within 10 minutes. This is fun dining because the menu offers small bites...so order two or three plates and share! We thought we might have room for dessert, but the plates we shared were filling. :) Can’t wait for the fall weather to dine outside!!

Excited that there is this kind of place in downtown Fort Worth. Great views and fun menu for small groups. Pulled pork sliders were excellent. But poor service will be the end of this restaurant if they do not do a better job hiring and training. Fewer smiling greeters and more knowledgeable and attentive waiters would go a long way in insuring The Perch's success. Will give it another shot in a few months to see if service has improved.

The Perch opened in May...more people need to know about this quaint little downtown spot. The service is outstanding and the creative dishes delicious. Even with the summer heat the atmosphere outside is breezy and comfortable. The scenery is nice...just wish they were on the top floor of the Frost building. Give the Perch a try, I think you’ll love it.

I was very disappointed with my experience. We chose this place for a girls night out. The ambiance is fantastic if you are on the patio. The inside is really nice too, but this restaurant, by far, has the best “rooftop” view of Fort Worth. The service, however, was absolutely terrible. We were not greeted at our table for 20 minutes. When I finally stopped (who I was assuming was the manager), I asked if we could get some service or start with some drinks. He asked what I wanted and I asked for a mojito... they are out of mint. So I asked him to come back. He didn’t come back, so I stopped him again and just asked him to at least bring us waters to start. He got someone to deliver waters but the person who delivered them did not say a word. He just walked off. So once again, we sat there for another 20 minutes without a designated server. The manager never told us who would be helping us. I kept asking him if he was going to be our server and he only responded with a quick no and did not follow up with any helpful information. Finally, I went up to the hostess and asked her if she could get us a server. She was very sweet and got the manager to come back to the table. We were finally offered drinks. I think we were finally assigned a server about 45 to 50 minutes in. We ordered a few appetizers to get started... but by the time we wanted to order anything else, the kitchen closed without warning (because everything else took so long up front). The food was a B- at best. We were never offered an apology and nothing was done to make it right. When we did finally get a server, he was very sweet. But I would never go here again.

We visited perch and two weeks later we were back! The food is amazing, unique, tasty. The service is terrific, they help in every possible way. Impressive. The restaurant, big patio and views are beautiful and comfortable. This week we had time for dessert and lucky us. We had the lemon pound vpcake with berries and the chocolate cake and both were fresh and flavorful....not your ordinary desserts. Perch is a great addition to Downtown Ft Worth.

Could not get a call back from restaurant beginning n Monday only received a recording restaurant would call back. tried three times that week no response and I wanted to increase reservation from four to 6 people. When i did receive an automated call back it was on Friday the date of reservation I was told no reservations could be made for outside seating. When we arrived we were told reservations had to be made for outside seating and since I wanted 6 instead of 4 they might not accommodate me. They did ultimate accommodate us done by Vincent. The food was mediocre, and certainly not up to the standard of restaurants in town. The salmon sliders were tasteless.

This was a great night! The view is great and the service was satisfactory. The food was really good, but was overpriced for what you get. Also, the menu is extremely limited. I would choose to go back for their breakfast tacos in the morning (those are great!), but not for dinner.
