This was our first visit to Perch and cannot wait to go back. We had the chance to sit at the chef’s table and be entertained by the activity in the kitchen while enjoying an outstanding meal. The service was outstanding, food delicious, and we especially appreciated the protocols put in place to safely dine out.

We had a very pleasant date. The online app payment/menu thing wasn’t explained very clearly and we didn’t see a server much. It wasn’t a big deal, but it would’ve been nice to have it explained at the start.

Everything was great. Our reservations were for 7:00 p.m. so we were disappointed that the lamb special was already sold out. Other than that, awesome.

Everything was beautifully presented and perfectly prepared, but the undisputed highlight was the key lime pie. Best I’ve ever had. The velvety, melt-in-your-mouth texture is divine.

Excellent venue, whether dining indoors or out - very Covid conscious. Creative and delicious menus from the kitchen and the bar. Service is always excellent. We love that Chef Mike sources locally and conscientiously, and he is always trying new things. Try it, you'll like it!

The outdoor ambiance was terrible. It was loud due to Bingo next door and people outside not social distancing and playing games. The ground was wet with chairs in standing water.
The food made us sick the next day - overly oily. Every dish tasted the same ( same spices used, I guess). It was also really expensive for mediocre food. Drinks were overpriced. Our vodka and tonic had hardly any vodka in it that we could taste.

This was our first time at Perch. The ambiance was nice, elegant yet simple. Food was decent, service was not. The restaurant seemed to not heed COVID regulations as the restaurant seemed at capacity from our view. Due to this, our server was drowning. It took 30-40 minutes upon sitting down to get drinks and just as long to order, etc. This was made even more frustrating as we watched our server tend to tables nearby. Will I come back? Maybe. Will I recommend to a friend? Yes, with warning.

Hey Allison, It does seem that your server did let your table sit for quite a while without drinks. Our apologies. I do see that he discounted your check as an apology. I've made a note on your account to send you a round on us next time you come in. We are only at 1/2 capacity and have removed many tables and left some in between others for spacing. There is always the option of sitting outside on our patio for the safest experience. We hope you will give us another try some time.

Portion size exceeded expectations, but it didn’t seem flavorful and it was on the pricy side. There was very minimal interaction with the server and no suggestions were made about menu/cocktails or asking if we’d been there before. Bummer, because the place looked awesome and felt like it was an upbeat place with a rockin menu. I would only come back for a cocktail on the patio or a visit to the chef’s table, as I’m sure that would of definitely been a memorable experience. Decent place, but wouldn’t go out of my way to come back.

We are outside in the parking lot area. The ambience was ok...But there were flies. We ordered lumpia, Hawaiian street corn, crab cakes, garlic fried rice, fried chicken banh mi. I think the best thing was the fried chicken banh mi, which seemed very fresh. The bread roll was soft and the flavors were good. Service was friendly, but minimal. We ordered and paid via an app so our only interaction was someone bringing out the food.

Really good experience at Perch. Servers and service were timely and knowledgeable with good food and wine recommendations. Wine list overpriced, but unnamed Cabernet by the glass was very good. Paella good while ramen special was very good. Dinner for 2 with a mixed drink, 2 glasses of wine and 1 dessert at about $100 before tax and tip is a great value. We’ll go back again.

Food was excellent as always. Had forgotten how large the portions are so definitely had some to take home. Perfectly shucked Ruby Salts oysters were a tasty opener.

They have accommodated to the need for outdoor seating with a tented area in the parking lot. Not much can be done to spruce that up so no fault of theirs - safety matters more these days.

They had these wonderful battery powered fly fans (to keep the flies away from our food). Worked like a charm - I ordered some on Amazon.

The staff was great! They followed all the proper protocols for Covid, being very careful as guests left their table and gave plenty of room. They only allow one person a time in the restroom, with hand sanitizer located just outside the door. I felt the entire staff was on board with all the rules.
