Food takes a nice amount of time to come out if you aren’t drinking be prepared to just be waiting. Also no umbrellas outside so no shaded option for outdoor seating

Atmosphere, service and food were all really great! We had mini waffles, shrimp and grits and the country breakfast. We had unlimited mimosas which was priced at $32 per person, which ended up just being 2 bottles with mixers. We were confused as it appears we could've just ordered one bottle.

It was really warm that day but we were told that they ordering umbrellas.

My friends and I met for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Everything was great from the time we arrived when the host checked us in per our reservation. No wait, they weren’t over booked and very much in compliance with current COVID restrictions in DC. Our server (Lawrence) was outstanding and he was very patient with us as we awaited the arrival of an additional party member. The food was absolutely delicious, from the traditional breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes), to the shrimp and grits. We also had a few cocktails as we enjoyed the amazing rooftop view of the city overlooking Audi Field and the new SW development. Great place to dine located at the Cambria Hotel in SW DC. One of DC’s newest hidden gems. Check it out!!!

In addition, I also visit the hotel’s bar/lounge at least one a week for drinks. It’s called “The Rowhouse” located on the first level. Ask for De’Shaun (Day-Shaun) the bartender, he is an outstanding mixologist and server.

Went for Mother’s Day Brunch on a recommendation and was totally disappointed! Perch ruined our Mother’s Day. Have the nerve to charge $75/person, for what? 4 service stations and 4 options to order off the a la carts menu?!? No, no, no.....got to come better than that friends. Ordered breakfast plates that still hadn’t come to our table after 1 1/2 hours after being ordered?? Ridiculous! Got all those people walking around the 6-7 table TOTAL restaurant....some of those people who had absolutely nothing to do clearly needed to be in the kitchen helping to cook orders! I was so disappointed in my black peoples....try to support your own but they let you down! Needless to say we left with hungry bellies. No good!!! And you called me earlier in the week to confirm the reservation having the nerve to hype up what I was to expect and gave me and my family SH@! Shame....totally shameful.

Perch was honestly not my favorite rooftop. The view is not that great, and the rooftop looks different than what the pictures online reflect. The food and drinks were ok. The service was TERRIBLE, I had to flag 2 people down so that they could find my waitress. I waited 45 mins just for her to take my order. When she finally took my order she came back 15 mins later just to tell me that they were out of grilled chicken sliders, I also wanted a margarita and the same thing happened, they ran out of lime. The service was just terrible.

It's been a weekend of dating that ended at a GREAT Brunch, cc: Cambria Hotel. The Shrimp & Grits, as well as the Chicken & Waffles - Excellent! Plus you can NOT go wrong with the great scenery (Audi Field, Navy Yard and Nationals Park) and bottomless mimosas. AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE all the way around.

Thank you Jean-Wesley and our server SARAH!

Comparably priced, easy parking (no game days) and great welcome to DC Rooftop Summer

We arrived and were seated for about 15 minutes without a waiter greeting us or anyone bringing water to the table. We asked the gentleman serving water for a waiter but no one ever came. Finally, we decided to leave without receiving service.

We took a quick ride on the lift and was greeted immediately at the entrance to Perch. We were shown to our table that was outside in the corner with views of the National Stadium and Audi Field. We started with Avocado Toast which was served au Cheval with blistered cherry tomatoes and fresh salsa. For my main, I had Chef Henry's Eggs Benedict. It was served with ham, jumbo shrimp stuffed with lump crabmeat and a Velvet hollandaise sauce and caviar. My guest and I follow this ever improving Chef, wherever he goes. A 2+ hour drive from Richmond was worth it! Can't wait to return for other menu options. Bottomless Mimosas and Poinsettias is a MUST!

I celebrated my 49th birthday at Perch SW Rooftop Lounge. It was a brunch event and everything was amazing. From the host to the servers they ensured we had great food and a great time.

I had the omelette with shrimp and crab. It was perfectly cooked and filled with lump crab and shrimp. The habanero salsa on the side was just spicy enough for the added heat added flavor. The cheese grits had just enough cheese and the consistency required for a lover of this lovely breakfast staple.

The sexiness of the rooftop lounge is a great look on a beautiful day. There is an option for inside seating and outdoor high top seating. But go for the lounge sectional seating if you want a dope vibe to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

This is an untapped gem for Buzzard's Point. Fantastic service and ambiance. Food was really good- though pricey. Happy Hour and a full menu on the roof deck would make this place a neighborhood destination. And, again, the service and atmosphere was great!

I think Perch SW Rooftop is still figuring out some kinks as they just opened a few weeks ago. Service was very slow and we didn't get a drink until probably 30 minutes after we sat down. Our server Miraculous kept us in good spirits even though it was slow-moving! Food was good, though I think overpriced for what it is. The view is absolutely incredible! I think I'll come back and stick to just drinks until they get a better system in place; you can't beat the view!

This is the first place I’ve dined in alone in another city. I loved it. The food was good, and the service was friendly as well. I loved the view of the city. I’m hoping as they expand, they offer more turkey breakfast options. Other than that I was satisfied.

This place is amazing! As soon as you enter you feel like you are at an elite destination that feels very stylish and intimate. The service is outstanding, the views are breathtaking, and the vibe very upscale and smooth.
The food was so flavorful and just what I needed. I am never surprised when I have an amazing meal prepared by Chef Henry Dudley. His menus always deliver on taste and presentation without fail.

I will continue to visit this amazing place.

The Perch is destined to become the next hot spot in the SW Rooftop locations of places to be and to be seen. The food was great and the service staff rocked. Marcus the F+B Manager really made us feel welcomed. The views of both the Audi Field and Nats Stadium are great and will phenomenal at night.
