As usual, Perch never disappoints! The Wood Fire Oysters with miso butter and parmesan are to die for, along with the Pimento Crab Dip- hello pimento and crab, what could be better? The Vegan Crab Cake has been a long time fave, if you have never tried it, a MUST because Chef Ledesma's recipe is as delicious as any crab cake I have ever eaten. Make and reservation and enjoy!

We’d been wanting to try Perch for some time, and we were not disappointed. The food was interesting and delicious, the cocktail list was impressive and the service was great. We will definitely return!

For the general masses, this is not a weekly dining location due to the price point. With that said, this is a excellent dining experience.

The staff maintained appropriate social distance.
Where appropriate, the dinnerware is recyclable.
The outside covered area is setup with enough distancing that you feel safe.

The food was incredible with something for every type of eater, including food allergy sufferers.

Recommend highly for the quality of the food and cocktails.

I appreciate that Perch added outdoor seating to be accommodating to those guests who are not comfortable eating indoors (like me), but it really was a temporary event tent in a parking lot. The ambiance wasn't great, but it was acceptable. The food was excellent though expensive (two beers and two appetizers was $54 before tip). The waiter was attentive but didn't hover. I'd go back again, but only if someone else was paying.

The food was excellent as always, service was a bit slow and we were seated in front of a giant fan which blew things off our table and gave us some pretty messy hairdos but overall it was worth it for the tasty food!

Perch is my favorite restaurant in RVA because of the outstanding service and delicious food. Every time I come they always wow me with their service, which is really hard to find anywhere. It’s so nice to experience this, especially during these tough times. I’ve come in with loved ones to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and last time we were celebrating my friend getting married. They’ve always made each occasion feel so special.

They've done a great job providing protected outdoor dining options in their parking lot - not much they can do with ambience and noise but they more than make up for it with the food!! If paella is on the menu, be prepared to share or take a box home!

The covered patio area was well spaced, with great service from the staff. The menu selections had a unique flair ... the whole fish was perfectly prepared, the paella came with a bonus of crab legs on top, and the rice noodles with chicken added on top were perfectly spiced. Great drink menu, and a PuPu Platter that tips its hat to the Joy Garden location that was on the site for decades previously. Outstanding!!

A good restaurant, which went to great lengths to provide outdoor patio accommodation to its patron throughout winter.
The food is great, and the alcohol drinks perhaps a tad overpriced considering the average decor of the outdoor patio seating.
In the end, the main turnoff was the background noise, mostly due to the fact that the nearby W Broad road traffic encourages the restaurant's patron to raise the volume of their conversations.

My daughter and I had a perfect Tastes of Fall dinner: Manila Negroni cocktail for me, mocktail for her; side salad; Butternut Bisque; and Fall Pizza. We ate indoors. Love Chef Mike’s innovative menu!

Because of pandemic, we ate outside with attendant cool conditions. Food was great, but understandably became little cooler because of the ambient temperature. Service was really good.

I had a great lunch under the tent on the side of the restaurant. The weather was perfect. I ordered the tuna poke bowl as my main course. It was very good, with the avocado, pineapple, seaweed, cucumbers and rice adding nice textures and flavors to the dish. The eel sauce was a good accompaniment. For dessert, I had the "love bomb," which is obviously called that because it basically makes love to the inside of one's mouth. Words cannot adequately describe how delicious it was. The chocolate was in the shape of a ball that had been sliced horizontally across the middle. On the inside were chocolate mousse, dulce de leche and a lavender-blackberry compote. Hot chocolate sauce was poured over the ball/bomb tableside, flowing into the ball through a slit in the top. Cocoa powder dusted the plate. The entire concoction was very sweet, just the way that I like my desserts. A couple of blueberries and a raspberry were also on the plate for decoration, as even I could not rationalize that they (together with the blackberries) made the dessert a "healthy one." LOL

Eating outside takes about from the experience, but what can you do in these times. Food was very good, the lumpia is excellent! Service was great too...Perch did not disappoint.
