What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.5

One of the original rooftop bars in DTLA, Perch has a French-leaning menu and views for days. Put it on your list for your next downtown date.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

Everything was great except the PA for the band was loud enough that it was very difficult to have a meaningful conversation even though we were outside on the veranda. Possibly re-directing the PA to best cover the area inside the restaurant where people were choosing to sit so they could enjoy the music. (This coming from a life-long musician).

Other than that, it was a great dining experience.

Thanks,
Dan

Perch was outstanding. Service was great. Food was amazing. Would definitely come again. I recommend the Oscar style steak with the truffle fries.

Incredible night! We had an amazing waitress, London, she was insanely hospitable and went above and beyond for my Parents 27th anniversary.
We were seated in a nook outside a bit always from all of the noise and people.
Food was extraordinary! We took our waitress reccomendations to heart and we reaped the best outcome!
From the fireplace to the live band, even some free dessert- it was a magical night! Needless to say we will be back.

Perch is a fantastic, magical place. It is the best roof top bar and restaurant in Los Angeles. It's happening yet laid back. The cuisine and service are exceptional without being pretentious. You sit back and listen to the the music surrounded by the lights of the city, then lean over the railing to discover, yes, that is a live band. I thought you would have to go back to the 1930s to find a bar, a restaurant, a night spot, as enchanting as Perch.

I loved this place! Right when my gf and I stepped foot in this place, the hostess was very welcoming. She made sure to set us up with a great table, congratulated us on our anniversary, and thanked me for my (military) service. Food was absolutely delicious, it didn't take long to come to our table after we ordered. Our server constantly checked up on us, and took care of our dessert. They played live music, and also have a roof top bar. My gf absolutely loved this place. We will definitely be coming back.

Service and ambience are 5.
The food was solid but not sublime. For the price, food was on par. It really is the idea of the swanky digs, the view and the service that elevates Perch. The pork belly was exquisite - the apples, the teeny tiny microplaned jalapeno, and sherry glaze hit all the notes with the luscious "like buttah" texture. My bouillabaisse was fresh and fragrant but I've had better balanced and complex broth in my little home town at a restaurant called Esin. The truffle cheese fries were ridonculous - a plate of those and a couple of glasses of Silver Oak while watching each episode of the final season of Game of Thrones would be 'talk story' worthy. The steak was the pedestrian 3 in our meal. Desserts do not disappoint. Splurge and get one. I will bring my college kid who enjoys fine dining here but if I were in this part of town with a real gourmand 'foodie' friend, I would opt for N/Naka.

First time customer. The tables a too close to each other ( which I kinda understand because you want to fit as much customers as you can for business purposes) but you sacrificing quality and comfort which I believe should be number one priority. Perhaps get rid of some tables and raised the prices to make up for it. I honestly wouldn’t recommend it unles you want something casual.. up up your dress code specially dinner time

This seemed like a neat spot to visit in LA with rave reviews, however, the food was no better than fast food. The burger, truffle fries and even the Caesar salad didn’t have much flavor. The Caesar dressing was not very good and the romaine lettuce was soggy. Our waiter was very nice, but we were sat right in front of the band. It was difficult to have a conversation. The band was wonderful- emma Jean music but the place was not very impressive at all. The waiter was great, but they should definitely revamp the menu and food here. Not impressed for spending $100. Save your money.

We did get a nice picture on the rooftop when it stopped raining so that was cool, but other than that, not a great place for food. The view and people are nice though.

We had a great time and the Jazz performer was absolutely amazing. My only complaint is I told the waitress I had a gluten allergy when she came to take drinks. When I asked if there was a GF Menu, she instructed me that they did not have one but MOST of the items on the menu were GF. She was not knowledgeable of those items (Which I think is very important), and asked her a few of the options I was thinking of going with.. None of them ended up being gluten free options. I ended up going with a Caesar Salad and when I received it, it had crushed up bread crumbs all over it and bc of the darkness did not realize it until I tasted it. It is partially my fault for entrusting the server with my allergy. I love the restaurant and the ambiance, but PLEASE educate your team on allergies and please make it easier for those with an allergy to enjoy the delicious food your restaurant serves.
