What Insiders Are Saying
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.
Staff seem ok but it feels like they are in such a hurry to get you finish your dinner so that they can turn around the table quicker.
The staff is amazing! Took care of me and made sure everything was up to my standards and beyond. The food was outstanding and if you ask for a good drink pairing they know exactly what to suggest. I plan to visit perch no matter the occasion anytime I’m in Los Angeles.
Dining with out-of-town friends but my first experience there.
Outstanding service, we have a problem with one of the dishes (temperature wise) and the entire staff went beyond their duty to make it right.
Great looking restaurant with horrible food. Brie tasted like bisquick...gnocchi was clearly frozen.
Will never go back for dinner but maybe drinks.
We started off at the bar for a cocktail and were served 2 perfect dirty martinis promptly. The Host texted us that our table was ready right on time with our reservation. The server approached our table immediately and got us another round to start off. He went over the specials but we decided to order off of the menu. We started with the Little gem lettuce and the baked brie. Both were very good, the brie's pastry crust was golden brown and the dressing on the little gem lettuce was delicious. For our entrée
we ordered the Gnocchi and the BOEUF BORDELAISE. We would highly recommend them both and would definitely order them again. We finished off with crème brule. The food, service and ambiance were exactly what we expected and quite frankly thought it was underpriced based on the location.
Great service and atmosphere. We came all the way from Dallas Texas, we were definitely IMPRESSED.
Restaurant avec une ambiance feutrée, une vue exceptionnelle sur le downtown de Los Angeles et une assiette très correct. Nous recommandons vivement !c
Beautiful view and amazing food, the service was great. I was hoping for more of a formal atmosphere but there were some people who were a little loud and rude but that’s to be expected. All in all an amazing experience
I love Perch! It never seems to disappoint. I was here with some girlfriends to celebrate my 31st birthday and it was a beautiful day with views of Los Angeles, great music, excellent service and even better food. Thanks to everyone at Perch who contributed to this lovely experience!
It was a lovely sunny Sunday and having brunch at Perch was perfect at rooftop! We had brunch and absolutely impeccable service provided by London!!! She made us feel even more fabulous!
GREAT experience. Would definitely do it again. Great views and service. Food was pretty good too.
Our experience at Perch was perfect!
We came in for a special birthday celebration last Saturday night and couldn't have been happier.
Our table was on the patio overlooking the city, the waiter's service was flawless, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was energetic and the views were exquisite. This was our first time coming to Perch and won't be our last. The price for dinner was VERY reasonable for all that you get.
25th Anniversary. Perfect! Food, Drinks, Service all first class!!!!!
Los Angeles needs more rooftop restaurants/bars like this. There is something very special to enjoy a good cocktail and great food this far elevated above the street. With LA's perfect climate, it seems like a no brainer.
We loved the whole experience. Checking in for our reservation, we were told our wait would be 10 minutes. Just enough time to grab a cocktail on the top floor. A good, energetic crowd was enjoying the sunset and the small, but hard working bar knows their stuff. Best way for me to test the quality of a bar is to order a cocktail off-menu. I usually describe what I like and then see what they mix up. Omakaze style. It was perfect and just in time for the text message that our table was ready.
The restaurant has a limited, but varied menu. Katie, our waiter, was spot on. Always there when you needed her and she knew her stuff. They even have blankets if the LA sunset wind is too chilly.
The food was well prepared, delicious and presented in a nice way. We never felt rushed and were allowed to finish our meat/cheese platter before the entrees arrived. Well done.
We left impressed and are looking forward to coming back
The waitress kept stopping by our table every 2 minutes and did not leave us alone. To go upstairs, they made us wait in line for 10 minutes because they said they are at “capacity”. Checked our ID’s twice!! Although our group of 4 ranged from ages 37 years old to 60 years old . Ridiculous! Then when we get upstairs, the place is almost empty. These people are dishonest!
Great views and wonderful environment. Octopus and sorbet were outstanding. Not too loud but cozy.
Oh,, I really liked the place. I didn't know they have a little concert going on. Everything was perfect. Making the reservation was tough.. You need to plan 2 weeks in advance to get the perfect date/time. Other than that, this is the signature place to go in LA.
Aaron went way out of his way to accommodate my wife and I while there. We made a 3:30 res and had no idea it was just brunch, he suggested we go upstairs on the rooftop lounge and come back at 5 and he would have a table for us, which he did. This was an out of town trip for us and My wife really wanted to eat at your place. Aaron and you staff went out of their way. Many thanks!!! I'm telling everyone on FB.
One of my favorite restaurants, I highly recommend Perch
Great service and great food. Staff was very happy. Overall, great place to celebrate!
Loved the place. The service and ambiance was excellent!
Amazing food AND amazing service. I cannot wait to return!
Had an amazing dinner celebrating 3 birthdays and it was absolutely a great experience
We enjoyed an awesome evening here! Started with a couple drinks on the 16th floor rooftop bar and had dinner afterwards. Bartenders are efficient and friendly! The view is great and a chill vibe. Downstairs the band playing was great and played at the perfect volume for talking over dinner. We shared the surf and turf skewers for an app and for dinner had the salmon and the filet. Both were cooked perfectly and very flavorful without being too salty. Everything was perfect and it was such a relaxing evening. Will definitely return!
Amazing ambiance. Dining at terrace with great view and nice live music. Great serving and good
It exceeded all expectations. They even gave us a glass of champagne on the house for our engagement celebration
It was a great time as usual.
Great food and a fun place to unwind from a long week of work. Also romantic enough to go with a significant other.
Pricey but nice ambiance and good bar tenders - friendly. Food was solid and a touch overpriced but a fun place with a live band with rooftop views of the city.
Experience was amazing! Steak Frites, chicken supreme and mushroom risotto were my favorite. The restaurant has an amazing view of downtown. Definitely will recommend and going back again!
Good view of downtown skyline. However, restaurant has been around for awhile so could use updating. Food was just OK.
Amazing atmosphere with live music at Sunday brunch. For sure the best value in LA !! My meal cost less than the valet!!
Me and my fiance had a spectacular time at The Perch! We loved it, the food was delicious, the drinks were great, the view was beautiful, and the service was attentive and top notch. It was pretty busy when we got there but we had a great time. It was our anniversary and a great night to remember. Highly recommend this place.
It was all good
First time dining at Perch LA and it was a great first experience. The environment was a lot more rowdy than I thought it would be (but it was a Saturday night and they have 2 bars). The drinks we ordered from the bar were delicious and served to us as soon as we ordered them. The food was amazing and would definitely recommend ordering the Surf and Turf Skewers (best shrimp I ever had) and the Steak Frites (loved the truffle fries)!!
Great location. Great food. Fabulous atmosphere! Really couldn’t beat Perch for a dinner with two other couples.
Great ambiance. Great food. Great service. Always seem to be off on reservation times but not a big deal. Expect to wait an extra 15 mins when you have reservations. Definitely a must see and try
Very trendy hip nice atmosphere. Fun for people under 60
