Chose Perch for brunch with my sister. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent service. The Chesapeake omelet was outstanding and the dressing on the salad greens was a refreshing change from oil and vinegar. I will return

What can I say? Plenty but just know we loved our dinner and Mike was awesome as per usual
My first time with getting beef and not the whole fish and it was tremendous. I don't know the name of our server but he was super too. Everyone there acts like they know you instead of talking down to you.
Love you guys!

This was our second visit to Perch, and all the food items we ordered have been outstanding both times. Our only negative is the noise level as the restaurant filled up. It became challenging to have casual conversation across the table by the end of our meal both times.

We celebrated my son’s 40th birthday on a busy Friday night and were impressed with the service received! They began our experience with leis and complimentary sparkling toast and appetizer. Every dish, cocktail, bottle of wine and dessert was throughly enjoyed. The mussels and scallops were my favorites!

The food was delicious but they fall short on the cocktails. I had a half filled coupe Manhattan. It was barely a sip.
Go for dinner but have pre dinner drinks somewhere else.

Some dishes (duck breast) were phenomenal, and others (seafood pizza) seem mediocre, both in portion size and taste. I would definitely go back for the duck breast and love bomb desert. I can’t get enough of all the wonderful flavors from the duck breast! Service was great, friendly, and professional.

Our experience was everything we wanted in a restaurant. All the staff were friendly. We were fortunate to get a seat at the chef’s table, and the owner/head chef was an amazing host. The food was tasty and we certainly appreciated the nods to Filipino cuisine on the menu!

My wife and I went for Valentines Day Dinner. The staff, ambiance, attention to detail and the food itself was great. As we were wrapping up our meal, the owner Mike came over to get some feedback. We really enjoiyed the personal interaction and learning about the inspiration behind the menu, staffing and guiding principles behind the restaurant. I would recommend this establishment to all and will visit again.

Valentines Day. It was a prix fixe meal. What was really nice though that even though the menu was set there were still 3-4 choices for each course. I also liked how everyone in the restaurant helped to ensure the guests had a great experience and the head chef I believe and possibly owner came out and made sure guests were happy. The other great thing about this restaurant is the fresh ingredients and that many of the items on the menu were made in-house a nice added touch. I will definitely come back to this restaurant to try their every day menu.

Went to Perch for Valentines Day dinner, so the menu was prix fixe, which was fine with us, as there was a number of choices. The wife and I had different entrees, starters, and desserts, and everything we had was top-notch. The food was prepared perfectly, presented attractively, and served promptly.

I keep coming back to Perch. It is my favorite restaurant in Richmond, VA. I am relatively picky about food in restaurants; if I can do it better at home, why bother? The special Valentine's menu was wonderful - great choices and delicious. Ordinarily I would not go out on a special night since the menu offerings are generally not all that good for a crowd that rarely goes out. This year I needed to be at the theater at 7:45, and Perch was the best choice! I highly recommend PERCH.

The service and food were great. The space is very nice with clean lines and calm colors. However, it is pretty loud and can drown out some conversation. Overall we had a wonderful time pairing some small plates to make a meal that tasted great and was presented wonderfully.

My husband and I made a reservation at Perch for my birthday dinner a week ahead of time, specifying that it was for a special occasion (birthday dinner) and I have to say our experience was well below average. My husband and I show up for our reservation on time only to not be seated and are told to wait at the bar. The drinks we ordered were watered down with no flavor. After 15 min of waiting the host informs us our table is ready, while walking to the very back of the restaurant (we sat at the furthest table in the corner of the back room), all the way past the restrooms, the host asks “so who’s birthday are we celebrating?” I say excitingly “it’s mine!” Little did we know it was the last time someone from Perch would mention/ask if we were attending the restaurant for any special reason.

We proceed to order a couple of appetizers and the waiter comes around with a sample hot plated item that he states is lamb; it was cold. We then order entrees, both getting the filet and both wanting it cooked medium rare. While waiting for the entrees we order more drinks. These drinks were not the drinks we had ordered and had to be sent back. Our steaks arrive and you can practically hear the cow mooing, which wasn’t the issue; we could have sent the steaks back. The issue is that this waiter never came back to our table for us to provide that feedback. After 40 min of not seeing the waiter, I don’t know (maybe he got lost given that we were in the far back portion of the restaurant practically exiled from everyone) he finally makes his way to us asking how everything was. I let him know my steak was a little too rare for my particular liking he then replies with “well I could have cooked it a little longer for ya” well sir, given that I had been at the restaurant for over two hours at this point that shipped had sailed. After the comment was made about my steak he made every effort to get the check as quickly as possible - I guess no birthday dessert?

We had a very nice time here - atmosphere was great. The food was just ok, though. It took about ten minutes after we were sat to be greeted by our server and given water; to be fair, it was 7 pm on a Friday night so it was fairly busy. We started with the lumpia and it was good. It was warm and crunchy and a good serving size for 2 as a starter, but it didn’t blow me away flavor-wise. For our entrees, we got the fried chicken banh mi and the duck. The duck didn’t have much flavor, but the other components on the plate were pretty good. The banh mi bread was superb, but the chicken wasn’t crispy and didn’t have much flavor. The veg on the sandwich didn’t add anything especially interesting to the meal. It came with fries and we both enjoyed those quite a bit.

One of the best dinners I have ever had in the city. We started with the mussels for an appetizer. I had the Duck and my husband the Ribeye. Everything was prepared to perfection. I absolutely adore how they have an amuse bouche daily, as well as a palate cleanser. Our waiter was phenomenal. I do not recall his name but he was extremely pleasant. He was very friendly and attentive without being over baring and very knowledgeable. 10 out of 10 would recommend. I cannot wait to return and dine with them again.
