This was our first time dining at Perch and it will not be the last. I was impressed with Perch from the moment I walked in - the smells, the vibe and the attentiveness of the staff. Bartenders were on point with their service and recommendations. Mike came to personally thank us and we were sure to tell him the food was superb!

Took my wife here for Mother’s Day brunch . The menu was very small. The food taste like it was pre cooked nothing was really hot or taste freshly made. However , the blueberry pancakes was the only thing that was good. Not good enough for a return visit. Will not be back, ever...

I can assure you, the food was not precooked. That does not diminish your experience. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit. I hope your server handled the problem accordingly once informed. We value all feedback, as it helps us improve.

Worst excuse for a crab cake sandwich. Mushy old crab meat barely cooked and small portion to boot.

We had a large party and that was no problem for Perch. They were great when I called to confirm and update the number in our party. They are doing great with COVID protocols and have a promo Weber they give a glass of Prosecco and laminate your vaccine card if you bring it in. They really took care of us. Also, they are doing a pre-fix menu option. 4 courses for $60 with some seasonal options mixed in with some of their classic dishes. Great way to try many things and worth every penny. Also we were able to mix the table with some ordering the prefix and others ordering straight from the menu. Can’t say enough good things about Mike and his lovely restaurant!!! Thanks again!!!

We love Perch! The quality and intention put into each plate is impressive. The cocktails are always exciting and well balanced. They have showed great attention to Covid precautions and are celebrating vaccine availability by offering a free glass of bubbles for bringing in your vaccine card (they’ll even laminate them on site for you!!)
The lumpia is out of this world, the spring scallop dish was huge (see pic) and the tuna poke was bright and fresh. Can’t wait to go back!!

This was our first time dining out in 13 months and we chose Perch because it's one of our favorites. We weren't disappointed! We do wish some of the old menu items will come back soon.

the food was fantastic (seafood excellent!) and our waitstaff was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. great creative cocktails too! we elected to sit outside due to covid and we got a lot of noise from broad street-sirens and the like. i would recommend sitting inside if space allows and make reservations.

As always, Perch delivers a STELLAR meal with exemplary service. Joey was our waiter - we love him! - and he was attentive and had great food and drink suggestions. We love sitting on the outside patio and the heaters were a nice touch on a slightly chilly early spring evening. I had the rockfish with lobster sauce and risotto which was phenomenal. My husband had the steak with mushrooms and kimchi potatoes and loved it. Perch is our favorite Richmond restaurant!
