This place has stellar views, fantastic food and is a great time overall. The only issue you might bump into is the staff - since they know their place is the 'happening' spot, some of them can be pretentious and rude at times. Fortunately the bartenders and majority of wait staff make up for the impolite managers and hostesses, so its forever worth the visit.

First let me start by saying that the Restaurant is very beautiful, it was my girlfriends birthday and we loved the decor and the view of the lights in downtown. The host was not that friendly or inviting, nor did he mention the rooftop bar was available for cocktails before dinner. We found out from our server who was very upbeat and personable. Unfortunately for me she didn't mention any of the specials they had that night because they sounded pretty amazing from what I could hear the server next to us say. The service was a little slow to be honest but the food was spectacular! We ordered a salad and the salmon ( both so delicious) but unfortunately they both came out at exactly the same time. Chris the manager came over to just check in with tables and the night took a turn for the best. He was so welcoming and gracious. Great conversation about the restaurant, the building, and the history. To be honest the only reason we would go back would be the food, view, and Chris. Being in the restaurant business for almost 20 years it was a so nice to see a genuine manager who cared about all guests. \n\nThank you Chris!!

Our server was only attentive after we sat. Once the food was ordered there was only 1 follow up on my drink, not my dates at all (she came & asked me the one time & dashed before taking him into account at all), how we were doing, or our check. We were there an hour & 1/2 & it was not busy \n\nThe women's bathroom was not kept up / not clean / no toilet paper & a mess in the stalls. It was 9p\n\nBeautiful view! Even inside as it was a cold night. The food was delicious! Compliments to the chef! \n\nX

I flew into LA for a few days and was told that I should definitely check this place out. I thought everything was beautiful and the customer service was great! We arrived 25 minutes late ( I called ahead to let them know) and even though we exceeded their grace period (15 minutes) and the kitchen was about to close, they still sat us. We sat at a table right against the balcony and fire place, it was a very nice view. \n\nOur server was very nice as well, unfortunately I forgot her name. (Black woman, long hair, yellow manicure. Anyways, she was great!) \n\nI ordered the burger and my friend the truffle cheese fries as well as the shrimp salad. Everything was really good. Only feedback: the fries tasted light on the truffle. \n\nOverall, I had a really great time and would definitely recommend it to a friend!

What a pleasant experience! I have always heard great things about Perch, and because of the rave reviews of friends and family, I decided to refrain from looking at too many photos (in order to leave some element of surprise). I was not disappointed! \n\nI came in the early afternoon on a Sunday and the place was packed (not noisy, just bustling). \n\nThe food was delicious, and we did not wait very long for it to arrive to our table (considering the crowds, that was a nice perk). The ambience was welcoming and warm. the views were beautiful, and it is arguably one of the best Sunday afternoons I've had in a long while.\n\nI would come back with a group of girlfriends for a reunion or another date with my honey (want to see the night time version!) - thank you for providing excellent service, beautiful decor, delicious food, and the good feeling that comes along with that.

The ambiance is absolutely stunning. Your view stretches for as far as the eye can see, above the entire Downtown Los Angeles scene. The lights tapered to the trees leave a glowing trail that only heightens the romantic feeling of such a special and beautiful spot. It is a very classy place, and it is ideal for a date, or special event. The live music was wonderful, and the food was absolutely divine. I will be returning soon! The portions were very good despite it being a bit pricey, but that was expected! If you want to impress a date or loved one, swing by Perch, but remember to get a reservation in advanced! Even their comforts foods- like the French onion soup and Mac n Cheese, were to die for. Equally as good as any restaurant I've dined in on my trips to Paris, and South France. Wonderful experience to end an exciting museum filled day!

Noise level outside where I ate was nice and quiet, but inside it was quite loud. You would have to raise your voice to communicate. The service was attentive, the food was delicious, and the views were great. A unique place. Dinner for two with drinks was over $200, and the whole parking and two-elevator situation made it too much of a hassle for me to make me a regular. Great experience, worth doing at least once.

We were seated on the patio for brunch on a chilly day. They did nothing to try to arrange the heaters to accommodate more guests. \nThe view is fabulous but other than the bread basket the food was average at best. Service was below standard. We both had cold potatoes on our plates. We got a less than sincere apology but no offer to remedy the situation. Pretty place to have a drink but that's about it.

The server and hostess was wonderful. However, when waiting for our table we headed to the bar and it took us 15 minutes to get just one drink. The bartender was inattentive and rude; I had to yell in order for me to get his attention. It is a beautiful, high-end restaurant, but the bar reminded me of a crowded college bar on karaoke Thursday.

I would like to know how to request fireside dining though. How do I make a special request for seating?

Food tasted like catered food. Not good. Almond cake for dessert tastes like biscotti- yak. Martinis came in a champagne glass. Glasses were dirty even noticeable in dim lighting. Headed to Bar after dinner. Floor sticky as hell and bar stayed wet like a vegas pool party. After the heavily tattooed bar tender seemed bothered because I asked for a specific vodka and didn't want the vodka in plastic OJ jug. And it was awfully made. Place now operates like a frat house. Which is fine, just don't charge high end prices. Lesson learned. Skyline view not worth it.

While the food was good, it wasn't the very best thing I'd ever eaten. Perch is definitely an 'I came for the ambiance' type of restaurant, which is fine by me. It was raining that night, so unfortunately we weren't able to sit out on the 16th floor, but it was nice and warm inside the 15th floor (they also covered the patio section and had heat lamps).\n\nAmbiance is super romantic and upscale, but it never felt pretentious to me. Live music was definitely loud, and I think everyone being confided to only the 15th floor made it a lot louder than I assume it usually is. The band was great, and the singer had an amazing voice. Really added positively to the experience!\n\nMy favorite part of my meal was the baked brie, which was SO delicious! The creamy, melted brie complimented the buttery puff pastry, and it was cut perfectly with the mustard aioli and tangy fennel & apple slaw on the side. I only wish the brie was bigger, it was just so good.\n\nOverall, a good place to go on an intimate dinner with a significant other or have brunch with a good group of friends.

I have been to Perch many times...the first time I went I ordered the steak frite and I can't get myself to order anything else! It is absolutely delicious. The steak can be cut with a butter knife and those fries are the best I have ever tasted. My husband ate his melt in your mouth chicken which is his favorite. The tuna tartare appetizer is spectacular. The almond cake for dessert was good but tasted a bit dry..the mound of ice cream heaped on top solved that issue but I think I would try a different dessert next time. The wait staff is very attentive and helpful. The ambience is inviting ..rainy night so the outside was not open which was too bad but the view is still as good as you can find downtown. My favorite restaurant in the city.

Fantastic venue with great cityscape for a backdrop. Cocktails were delicious, decent variety on menu,quick service and great tasting, fair sized dishes. Terrace was heated and warm enough to eat outside on a cold Feb night. Cool ambience with a decent live band. Long queues of people waiting for entry just to the bar which was a bit noisy. My wife was ID'd (at 30!) which could have been problematic if door staff had been insistent

We waited 25 min after seating for server to arrive to take drink order. Not impressive especially with theater tickets. Frankly, restaurant seemed preoccupied with a celebrity guest. Very nice service when it arrived but servers kept changing. Food and wine were mediocre for price. Place feels like it wants to be in Las Vegas when just relaxing into LA might work better at least for us. Beautiful space and friendly servers when they were attentive. Maybe an off night but we were not thrilled.

I was there on a Tuesday night with my boyfriend. Everything was lovely, except for the seating arrangements. At first it was just us two and a couple a few tables down. Then it started to get a little busier and the tables are so ridiculously close I couldn't hear my own voice or that of my boyfriend. However I was able to hear the obnoxious conversation of the man a foot away from me. My only suggestion would be to space the tables a little more apart. If not it would've been a perfect date.

I don't usually spend money on expensive dining but I received a gift certificate to Perch and my girlfriend and I had an excellent evening.\n\nWe had a couple drinks during happy hour, but couldn't bring ourselves to drop $14 for another later in the evening. We had the cheese plate, bruschetta, salmon, chicken, and the mushroom risotto. Everything was delicious. However, if I didn't have a gift card, I probably wouldn't come back in the future, except to have the salmon which was truly the best I've ever had.

We went to Perch for my gfs birthday. So let me start with the parking. There isn't a specific lot to park in but there is a lot 2 doors down for $10 and they have valet most nights starting at 7 for about $10. The building is an old well kept building in downtown. The restaurant is on the 15th floor and has some nice views of downtown. The wait staff were pretty good but the food was excellent. I had the short ribs and my gf had the scallops. Both were done perfectly. The short ribs even had most of the fat trimmed. They were both delicious. I will say that if you sit outside wear something warmer at least until summer as it gets chilly outside. The bar looked nice but we didn't spend any time there. Overall a great restaurant.

Food was good! Hostes wasn't very Accommodating. We were sat out in the open cold and asked to move somewhere warmer so instead of giving us a few options (I saw others get offered options)they put us in the hostes area where it was awkward. They hostes all looked a bit sloppy. It was my girlfriends birthday and 1st time there. I was disappointed that it wasn't a special vibe for her. Once we payed the server wouldn't even look at us.. and yes we tipped 20%. Overall disappointed!

Food was not good at all. We got the skewers for appetizers, came with a small arugula salad, also had the tuna (its raw) with a hanful of chips. None of that was tasty at all. We then ordered french onion soup, it was pretty gross. The drinks (mojitos and some peach vodka drink) were pretty good and strong. The place has gorgeous views though. Worth going for a drink or two but elsewhere for dinner. Very disappointed. If the food was tasty we wouldve made this our new spot. I would say stick to simpler dishes or completely ditch the 'french cuisine' its a total flop. Tapas, italian or even plain old american food such as sliders would send this place off the charts.

Went here for lunch with a friend on the day of the Women's March. We arrived a couple of hours earlier than our reservation but they seated us with a smile. The server was discreet and friendly. The view of downtown from the terrace is amazing and was more so because we could see all 750,000 march attendees from our table. The brunch menu is rather limited but not surprising for a downtown venue. A most enjoyable end to a stimulating and energizing day. I would recommend anyone should visit this restaurant especially if you have friends visiting from out of town.

I have been to Perch before and I really liked it. However, this time the service and food were horrible. It took the server 30 minutes to acknowledge us, I would have left if it wasn't for my kids who wanted to stay. We finally ordered and my drink took about 45 minutes to arrive. My son's steak had a hair. My coffee was cold and had a strand of lint. The cheese fries were greasy. The food and quality is not worth the price at all.

Food was amazing, timing of food was great. I've been in the food industry for a while now and only thing that was a bit dissappointing was the service. Maybe it's not a policy, but one thing that would make the service even better is for the server to be more attentive and check on the table after each course arrives to make sure everything is good. For example, my date and I ordered a Caesar with shrimp, the salad arrived without the shrimp and I was waiting for the server to maybe approach us or to at least look at us instead of walking past us, I had let the busses after the course since we were hungry and wasn't really a big deal. The server was told by the user and still we where approached until I had to point out the server to come. Busier service is attentive just that little tweak of approaching after the courses would make the customers feel the comfort. Everything else was amazing. Will definitely come back.

This was my second time to Perch in three weeks because I loved it so much the first time I went - for dinner at the end of December.\n\nI went for Sunday brunch this time. I had the beet salad, which was excellent! The serving size was substantial and very affordable at $12. I was very full without taking the option of adding chicken or shrimp to it. \n\nI enjoyed the jazz quartet performing outside on the patio while waiting for my friend to join me. \nWe opted to eat inside this time as it was cold. I had eaten at an outside corner table for dinner, which was much quieter and cozier, but it would have been too chilly for us yesterday for brunch.\n\nIt was a little noisier and more cramped where I sat this time but I could still converse easily with my friend and we had a great view -- were at a table that had an open window looking out to the city skyline. \n\nService was good. The brunch menu had a nice variety and much cheaper than the dinner menu. I eyed other dishes as waiters carried them by. The hamburger looked very good!\n\nI recommend Perch for brunch or dinner!!!

My boyfriend and I celebrated his birthday in LA. I searched restaurants with a view and Perch came up. You can't see the restaurant from the street outside, but as soon as you walk into the building, the building's concierge leas you to the elvator. You have to take two: the first to the 13th floor, and the second to the 15th where the dining area is. The rooftop bar is on the 16th.\n\nThe ambience is lively with oversized couches and a busy bar and small tables out on the glass enclosed porch. The weather was amazing and the hostess seated us outside.\n\nI ordered the Steak Frites and my boufriend ordered the Filet Mignon. Both were delicious - my Steak Frites was special.\n\nOur mixed drinks were also phenomenal.\n\nOverall, was very happy with our experience. The view was outstanding.

In my opinion, Perch is overrated. You're paying for the view, not the food. I had the filet mignon and at $37 I was left underwhelmed. The flavors were rather muted and the side dishes didn't add any excitement. They were asparagus and mashed potatoes; the asparagus didn't have much flavor and the potatoes were just as bland. I will give the kitchen props for the preparation as everything was cooked to perfection. Besides the food, the service was subpar. The server didn't even bother to engage with us in the slightest. Furthermore, it was noted on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, yet no gesture was made. While this isn't a necessity, a restaurant of this caliber should make it a priority. Overall, the view was stunning, but it's not worth the lacking service and subpar food. There are other restaurants with the same aesthetic that is well worth the expense.

The moment we stepped in the hosts were instantly rude and I knew we were off to a bad start. I walked up let them know we had a reservation very politely I may add, and both continued talking to each other until one of them turned and asked 'Can I help you?'. They finally took my name and informed me they were getting my table ready. Standing right in front of him, one of the host yelled out my name (which by the way was not even correct even though I had just said it a mere 30 seconds ago). He chose to yell it out twice even though he clearly could see me standing awkwardly waving a hand at him. The girl who walked us to our table didn't even say a word to us-at all. Honestly those first five minutes really dampened our experience, the rest of the meal was without issue but we wouldn't stop by again.

I took my wife here for our 17th wedding anniversary. I found this place by chance while moving around a Google Map of DTLA. I didn't read any reviews or anything, which would normally be considered a mistake. I chose this restaurant specifically because of the rooftop dining and view of DTLA and was merely hoping for a decent meal. It turns out we were in for an AMAZING meal! Everything was decadently rich and masterfully prepared and presented. The service was excellent and the ambience was very classy.\n\nSpecifically for my experience, I asked for a table with a great view for our occasion. Perch delivered on that request in spades. We were seated at a table on the outside terrace right next to the fireplace with a straight-on view of the LA skyline. It was breathtaking and the dining experience only supplemented the night.\n\nPortions are generous and the plate costs strike the right value.\n\nI could not recommend this place more. Please check this one out.

It was a magical evening at Perch this past Thursday, December 29. We were greeted by a warm and friendly hostess who gave us a spectacular corner table on the outside patio. The view of the city lights and ice skating going on in Pershing Square below was wonderful. A cozy fire burned across from us. Titas, our waiter, was extremely attentive and spot on in recommending a fabulous ginger bourbon cocktail to start off our evening. My date and I split an excellent and ample Caesar salad to start off our meal. He ordered the salmon and I ordered the scallops, and we shared with each other. I found the salmon to be very moist and delicious. I loved the scallops but wish there had been more than 3. The scallops were prepared in a heavenly sauce. We did not try the desserts as we were full from dinner. \n\nIt was such a romantic setting. We could visit quietly and had plenty of space between us and the next table. Conversations of others were not overheard. We did not feel rushed to leave in anyway. It couldn't have been more romantic -- it was a perfect evening. At the end of our meal, we both agreed that Perch would definitely be a place that we would return to again. There is something very special about it -- an experience not only in dining but in taking in the wonderful energy and ambience that downtown L.A. provides - a treasure that is right in our own backyard. \n\nParking suggestions:\nWe had a 5:45 p.m. reservation -- arrived in the nick of time to meet the 15 minute window. It took us a little longer than estimated to park at the Pershing Square parking lot across the street -- an excellent deal at a $7.00 flat rate. \n\nWe were at Perch from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.. It was hard to leave, but we had plans to attend Amelie at the Ahmanson at 8 p.m. We cut it close, making it to our seats inside the theatre at \n7:55 p.m. Allow more time if you plan to do the same.

What a great find! Read about it in the NYT for deco places, we were on a mission. High above and overlooking several architecturally significant buildings and Pershing Square, this is a great spot to take in warm LA evenings. We didn't expect the food to be so good, and generous proportions. Ask for veranda seating, closer to the edge the better. For happening nightlife, go to top floor - lots of energy.

We went as a family to enjoy a meal before a concert at the Disney theater. Our reserved table was ready, with a nice view. Not enough outdoor heaters for the temperature, but we brought wraps, so we were not frozen, but chilly. The menu was appealing, we ordered and told the server we had time constraints, so she took care to make sure we would be served in a timely fashion. The food arrived and it was tasty, but it was lukewarm at best. They offered to 'reheat' it, but we declined--for time purposes and because reheated steak, bouillabaisse and the rest of our order would not have fared well in a microwave. We paid the bill and headed out and I felt sick before the elevator (which stalled and left us stuck between floors for a few minutes) reached the ground floor. I high tailed it to the concert hall and was violently ill before the show and had to leave the hall once more, in the middle of the concert. Not good. I don't think I would go there again and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone based on this experience. Too bad because the view is beautiful.

A dear friend and I went to celebrate our birthdays. We had reservations and were seated on the patio right away. Our server Malia was fantastic! She took very good care of us that night, she was very personable, friendly and attentive to our needs throughout our whole meal experience. My friend ordered the salmon and it was so tender and flavorful. I ordered the steak frites topped with dungeness crab and the truffle fries. It was all so unbelievably delicious! Someone brought us these cute tiny mugs with vanilla bean ice cream topped with berries and a candle. It was so kind and thoughtful. I didn't expect a free dessert. We sort of mentioned it in passing to Malia that we were out celebrating together. We absolutely had a fabulous time. The live band was also very good, they played good music all night. We also ventured upstairs to the rooftop lounge area with the couches and fire pits. Took in a 360* view of the beautiful city all lit up at night and saw people ice skating down in Pershing Square. We took a few pictures but it was quite windy and freezing cold so we promptly left. We will definitely be returning in the future with our husbands. It was such a great environment to get dressed up fancy for one night and go out on the town. My only complaints: valet service doesn't start until 7pm, our dinner reservations were for 6:15 and we had to park down the street. I didn't know until after I'd made the reservations that valet didn't open until later. We had to pay for water, granted it was a bottle of Voss mineral water but we should have been given the option of getting free tap water. Other than that, it really was a wonderful and memorable night for my friend and I. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I'd highly recommend this place to any friend and will be sure to tell all my friends about my experience and the delicious food at Perch.

If, on the other, hand you arrive with your mom (how dare I bring a middle-aged woman to dine downtown, right?) to celebrate her bday- they will most likely seat you in the back dark corner so no one can see you. \nWe had a reservation, when we arrived we were told our table wouldn't be ready for a 'while.' The table we finally sat down to had no lights, settings, and it was dirty and I'm almost sure the spot the staff goes to sneak in a cigarette. \nThe food was fast and pretty good.

This is a Perch with a view of downtown LA. It's in a 'vintage' building on the roof, 15th floor, requiring 2 elevators. That's the good news. The bad news is the indifferent-poor service, both at the reception and in the dining area, and the inattention to important requests by the kitchen. For example, I asked the waitress (none-too-prompt) to have the salad served with grilled chicken and NO PEPPER. The salad arrived with good grilled chicken, but also lots of pepper (on an indifferent caesar salad). The waitress, upon being informed of this, did not offer to replace the salad or not to bill me for it. This is unprofessional! I saw other diners apparently contentedly eating their 'French' food, but I was dissatisfied. If you wish to have a drink or two and see downtown LA from above, goforit. Otherwise, go to Taix for French food.

The entree was never boxed up.Never brought back to the table after she took it to be boxed up. I paid $30 and some dollars for food that I only took a few bites of.

Mine was French sea bass (loupe de mere) It would have been delicious. It had too much stuff under and over it. Fish should be simple. My partner's fish was ordered without half of the accompanying ingredients and was much better. \nThe brought the entrees before salad was finished and the server just stood there looking at me like I was supposed to clear the table. \nThe restroom needed attention.

We had been trying to make reservations to Perch for months now, but their weekends are always booked way in advance. Since our anniversary landed on a Wednesday, we were finally able to get a reservation to celebrate there. This restaurant is 'perched' at the top of the historic Pershing Square Building with amazing views of Downtown L.A. After a trip on two separate elevators, you're greeted by a handful of friendly young women who verify your cell number so they can text you when your table is ready. We arrived early, so we sat at the beautiful bar for cocktails before dinner. When it was time for dinner, they seated us at the edge of the rooftop restaurant overlooking the lights of the L.A. skyline. We brought out own wine considering corkage was only $20. Their menu is varied, with typical choices as well as humorous offers, such as 'Little Bunny Frou Frou,' a delicious sounding rabbit entree. We both decided on the Filet to complement the red wine we brought, and we were not disappointed. The steaks were perfectly prepared, topped with a bordelaise sauce, and came on top of pureed potatoes with grilled asparagus on the side. After dinner we went upstairs to the rooftop bar to have an after dinner drink and to enjoy the 360 degree views of Los Angeles. All in all, it was an amazing experience, especially for a special occasion. The crowd is younger, and this seems like a hot spot any night of the week. Make a reservation well in advance to assure you get the right seat with a view!

I found Perch quite by accident. Just zooming in on google maps looking for a restaurant near our hotel. We came into LA from the South Bay for a stay-cation. I read some reviews and made the reservation. The food was great. We each had a cocktail. I had a ginger whiskey drink. I forget the name, but it was very tasty. It was minuscule though. Think dixie cup size. My friends cosmo was a decent size and the glass of zin I had with my dinner made up for the tiny cocktail. We started with two salads, mine was the beet salad and I loved it. My friend had the Moules appetizer for dinner. It was large enough for two. Sadly they forgot the bread to sop up all of that scrumptious broth. I had the short ribs and they were delicious. We were both too full for dessert even though the creme brulee' (our favorite) looked amazing. I had asked for a window seat in my online booking and they saw that and got us a great corner table. The vinyl wind curtains were down, so you lose a bit of the view, but it was still great. We were also near the outdoor fireplace which really added to the ambiance.

I had friends visiting from Sydney and decided to take them here for a nice dinner and a view of the city. Service was ok at first, but improved later. We had to flag down someone to get our waitress to order our food after waiting for about 15 minutes (we had 4 kids with us, and didn't want to wait too long as kids cannot stay past 9 pm), and had to ask the water server for utensils and napkins, since our table was never set, and our fromage + charcuterie platter arrived and we had nothing to eat it with. \n\nThe cocktails and meals did not disappoint, however. Our table ordered the Chicken Supreme, Scallops, Steak Frites, and the Boeuf Bordelaise. All were good.

Commuting from the SFV to DTLA isn't so easy even if you are leaving early. We arrived and valet the car. The building is very unique as its an older DTLA building. We took two elevators up to the 15th floor and the ride up felt like we were in a murder mystery game (at least how I felt with that people we were going up to the restaurant.) \n\nThe hostess was right at the entrance and was very quick at attending everyone and having someone take them to their table. It was nice that they read the comments you type while making your online reservation as they greeted happy birthday to my boyfriend.\n\nMoving on, we were taken to our table which wasn't my favorite spot to be seated but I let it go.\n\nOur waiter was Liam and he was great! We liked Liam right away because he has my nephews name so we knew we would never forget his name. :) \n\nHe was attentive and always checking in with us to make sure we were doing well. \n\nWe ordered our drinks first, he had Weihenstephaner (beer) and I had Poema Brut Cava champagne For dinner he ordered the Pan Roasted Salmon modified because he is picky but Liam was very accomodating and I had the Steak Frites. As we waited we got the chance to scope out the restaurant and we really like the set up and the ambiance. Unfortunately, we weren't able to go up to the 16th floor as it was closed for the night. \n\nOur waiter Liam kept checking in with us giving us updates of our dinner and it was served in the time he mentioned. Silence around our table as we ate dinner because the food was very good! The birthday boy is particular on his salmon (a picky eater in general) and enjoyed it. My dinner was great, the steak was cooked to my liking and seasoned just right. The fries was new to me and they were so good! For dessert I had the gelato and he had the sorbet, they were tasty!

Like so many new restaurants, Perch has wonderful potential. Food was innovative and quite good. Our waiter was helpful and did the best he could. However, the server who brought our meal needed training. We asked for pepper for the salads, and he brought a salt and pepper shaker. He was confused by our request for fresh ground pepper. The host/hostess mash-up was throwing more shade than the Library Tower at high noon. I arrived first for a party of 5. She snottily advised that we would not be seated until the full party was there. So I took a seat in the bar. Another couple arrived, and we were chatting when she came up again to say that these tables are reserved. I advised her that we had a reservation. The last couple had texted that they had parked and were on the way over. I remaindered her that we did have a reservation (we had just checked in less than 5 minutes earlier. I told her she could seat us now at our assigned table for dinner or we would stay seated where we were until the others arrived.\nWe did not allow her lack of training to dampen our spirits. We got someone else to seat us and enjoyed a very good meal.

Had a wonderful brunch here with the girls and would do it again in a heartbeat. We had the eggs benedict (really tasty) and some sort of truffle cheese fries which were so bad for you they were so good. Amazing really. Bellini's were flowing and the view was amazing. The only issue is parking (I hate downtown) and the server who was supposed to bring us change for the cash and never did increasing his tip to 40% instead of 20% which really irritated me beyond words. Of course, he was nowhere to be found so the money is a loss. In the future, I'll just have to bring cash in several denominations to be sure the server is tipped appropriately. I'm all for tipping when it is earned but 40% is a bit ridiculous. I'm supplementing servers income not paying your rent!

I have nothing but praise for Perch.

The food and service here is great. It's very enjoyable with live music, fun atmosphere and the views are fantastic. I'd say the only downside would be that if you go on a Friday or Saturday night they seem to open the doors up to a totally different and much younger crowd. I'd suggest eating early if you want to miss crowds of drunk , rude and noisy people in the lifts and they really pack them in. Shame.

Ok so first and foremost my reservation was for 10:30pm, nobody had informed me that the dinner kitchen closes at 11pm. From the time we sat down we were rushed. forced to not only order quickly but also order all courses at once before we even got drink orders. As unfortunate and slightly embarrassing as that was I was celebrating my 26th birthday with friends so I didn't say anything but an even bigger embarrassment happened when our food actually came out, my friend had ordered the short rib only to find MULTIPLE HAIRS in her food. It was appalling so much so that she refused to eat anything coming from that kitchen stating she had lost her appetite. The ordeal left the whole table feeling a little sketchy about the food but we were all hungry so after inspecting our own plates wit our cell phone flashlights we began to eat. I ordered a medium rare steak frites which was cooked well done and quite chewy, I showed our waitress after cutting my steak in half to reveal NO pink and she apologized and took the steak back. The replacement took so long (probably because the kitchen was closing) that by the time I received it desserts were coming out and had lost my appetite. I took the whole dinner in a to go box. The whole experience was not only embarrassing for me as the person who picked and booked the venue but also for the establishment. Long story short I left disappointed embarrassed and hungry! our table was a table of 9 so our bill was upwards of $600 and For that type of money I truly expected much more then what I received. As if that wasn't enough the menu I picked for our table was suppose to have mash potatoes purée & brussle sprouts provided to share...it never came, yet again another disappointment.

I don't know of any other downtown LA restaurant that has the ambiance of Perch. The 'walls' of this restaurant is the beautifully lit office buildings that span half the room and the ceiling is the night sky. Unfortunately tonite was a cloudy nite so no stars were visible. It was slightly chilly, but they have heaters which provides warmth. The dining area is on the 14th floor with rooftop bar on the 15th. \n\nStarted with the mussels. 2 dozen mussels in a tasty broth with two slices of garlic cheese toast. It was very good and initially looked like a lot, but the mussels were about the size of a dime. The beet salad with baby arugula was a large serving and the waiter was nice to split it in two plates since I was sharing it with my dinner guest.\n\nThe sautéed fresh Brussels sprouts were a winner. And the sea bass with cous cous was a nice portion. \n\nAfter dining, I suggest you walk upstairs for an aperitif in the rooftop lounge and take in the beautiful sights of DTLA. It's a perfect way to end the evening!\n\nCheck out my other reviews on Yelp under Valerie M (Honolulu, HI). Aloha!

A family member of mine was visiting from out of town. My Fiance and I wanted to take her to a place that had great views and a beautiful ambiance so of course we chose Perch. Overall, our experience was great. The food was tasty, the outside seating was perfect and the live band was a great touch. My only complaint would be that I had made reservations on a Tuesday night at 7:45pm. We checked in with the hostess around 7:40pm and were told that we would be seated in the next 10-15 minutes. 10-15 minutes turned into 45 minutes and we weren't sat until closer to 8:20pm. Typically, I would understand being a little behind on seating people but it was a Tuesday night and there were a few tables that were open throughout the restaurant so it seemed a little excessive to have made reservations and to wait 45 min to be sat. I would of course suggest making reservations as it seems like a go to spot for many but plan on waiting to be sat.

We were a disappointed with the delivery of the food. We were a party of 12 and 1 person didn't receive their food until 15 minutes after everyone else had their food. We had a price fix menu and 2 people had to leave early and the server asked what they wanted to do about their dessert. They said to bring it out to the table so others could either enjoy the extra dessert or bring it home. The server took it upon himself to randomly cancel 2 desserts. When the desserts were served someone didn't get the dessert they ordered and had to wait over 10 minutes for them to get the correct one out to the table. I spoke with the manager of the restaurant the following day. She was very nice and she wanted to rectify the issues. She asked her boss to contact me the following day and I have not heard from him!

We knew we were arriving at someplace very special when we exited the elevator at the top of the 20's-era building adjacent to Pershing Square, only to find ourselves directed into another elevator that was necessary to ascend the remaining three floors to the real top floor and the restaurant. Exclusive. Elegant. French decor. Fabulous views. Fabulous service. Fabulous food. The jazz band was top notch. Was this L.A. or was it really New Orleans? It was hard to tell (except we were dining in great L.A. weather).\nNo doubt, this was truly someplace very special.

We had a wonderful dinner celebrating our anniversary. We were greeted warmly with ' Happy Anniversary' and then taken to our table which was in front of the fireplace. Awesome! We started out with some Happy Hour appetizers of Creamy Truffle Cheese Fries, 2 Beef Sliders and Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta...YUMMY! Dinner consisted of the Chicken Supreme with the incredible creamy truffle polenta (amazing) and the Pan Roasted Salmon. Both dishes were cooked perfectly and were scrumptious. We finished off dinner with the delicious White Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bourbon Caramel Glaze...my oh my! You must try this dessert if nothing else...sweet, creamy and full of flavor...definitely a YES! Highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out.

My boyfriend and I paid $70 for him to get food poisioning from their oyster and SUPER OLD fries. We came for Lunch at 2 which ended up being the brunch menue (no one told me that on the phone when i made LUNCH reservations - I was very specific since it was a birthday surprise). I did not eat any of the food because it looked old but my boyfriend did and within minutes he was throwing up everywhere; we couldnt even leave the city for an hour because he was in the alley throwing up. For a 5 star restaurant I was seriously unimpressed. I called while my boyfriend was throwing up to tell them he got sick from their food (he didnt have anything else to eat before we went there so it was definitely their food) they took down all the info and said they would call and make it up to me but I never got a call. That was this sunday today is tuesday. I finally called them back tuesday afternoon and have to go through another survey (same one I answered on Sunday) and was told they would call me back and they would 'do something' if they have any other complaints that day ............. how about you refund me my $70 since you ruined my boyfriends birthday and I had to cancel reservations I had a down payment on and tell family members to turn their cars around because my boyfriend was throwing up all evening ON HIS BIRTHDAY!\n\nBefore he was throwing up we were talking about bringing our fmilies there next time they come into town but after the meal and customer service I'll probably just stick with 71Above.

This is still one of our favorite places to dine in LA - we've had running reservations every other week now. This experience was great, with one exception. We ordered five penicillins (it's really good), the first four were amazing. The last...not so much. It came out, my date took a sip, and choked. He handed it to me, I took a sip, and nearly spat it out. It tasted like kerosene. There was no sweetener in it, and whatever alcohol the bartender put in it tasted more like rocket fuel than anything I had ever tasted. We handed it back to our server, who got us another one that tasted exactly the same. He apologized, and said that they had a new bartender on staff. We finally got a drinkable one after the third try, but it still tasted pretty bad. It was a rare experience, since every time we've been here, the drinks have been amazing.

Beautiful views, nice decor. I took clients here based on a local recommendation. Two of our group had good food, two of us did not. The ribeye and rabbit get a thumbs up. The steak frites not so much. First delivery came with ice cold fries. They tried to make it right but took the whole plates away. They returned with hot fries but the new steaks (which we didn't ask for) were overcooked and extremely chewy. The manager offered us Brussel sprouts as an addition without realizing we had actually ordered them and they did not deliver. They brought complimentary dessert. It was not worth the calories. Skip the food and go to the rooftop bar. The up side was our wonderful server Jennifer.

This restaurant is located at the heart of downtown Los Angeles, overseeing the beautiful scene of Pershing Square and part of the DTLA skyline. My wife and I took our friends visited LA for the first time from abroad and we both agreed that the Perch served as an excellent choice for introducing the beauty of DTLA to people new to Los Angeles. \nOur party ordered the French onion soup, cheese plate, chicken supreme, steak frites, pan roasted salmon, and a side dish of Brussels sprouts to share among 4 individuals. The food was decently cooked and went really well with the live band on the background and the beautiful scene at the outdoor dining area. The flavor, however, was on the slightly heavier side and I did not get too much pleasant surprises from the food. Nonetheless, dining at the Perch was still a balanced and pleasant experience shaped by the scenic view, overall atmosphere, and food with a decent quality.

My initial reservation was for 3 at brunch 9/25 and I needed to add a seat on for a 4th, a 6 yo. I called same day to see if I could add this young lady to our party and was told there was not room to add a 4th person. So I cancelled; the minute I cancelled, a table opened up for 4 on OpenTable at the same time, 1:30. We arrive, I think the staff was a little surprised that I pulled that off after they insisted there was no way to modify. We are seated, it is a table with 2 sofas facing each other, one of our party has a problem with her back and requested a move to a table with chairs. No problem easily done. The seating is all in even counts and place was not full. Food was mediocre at its best, the truffle fries were disgusting. Server wins, she was very attentive and nice. Overall, completely overrated, poor wine list, glad I tried before bringing the big guns in, I would have been mortified.

My first visit to Perch was amazing in almost every way.\n\nTHE FOOD\nOutstanding. For some reason I had the misconception that Perch was all about the view and less about the food. I was wrong. The food was stellar. My table of four shared to sides as appetizers: bacon mac & cheese and brussel sprouts. Both were the best I've ever had of each. The mac and cheese is the stuff of dreams.\n\nMy entree was the Steak Frites, and it was excellent. The star of the dish may actually be the cheesy truffle fries. It's like a mini poutine on a plate. I would order this again in a heartbeat. Others at my table ordered the short ribs and the rabbit ravioli. I tried the ravioli, and was wonderful, but maybe a tad spicy if you're wary of heat. I loved it, though.\n\nFor dessert, the birthday girls each received a white chocolate bread pudding with berries. Amazing.\n\nMy cocktail of choice: the 'My Fair Lady' -- Reyka Vodka, Crème de Peche, cranberry juice, lime juice. Very refreshing and delicious -- but on the smaller side.\n\nTHE VIEW & DINING ROOM\nPerch is of course known for their views, and deservedly so...they are stunning. From what I can tell, the dining spaces at Perch are on floors 15 & 16 of the building. We had an Open Table reservation, so we were on the 15th floor. (I was told there are no reservations accepted on 16.) We hoped for a table outside, and when we arrived we were told we would be outside since we made that request on the reservation, but when we were escorted to the table it was in use, so we were seated inside under the retractable roof. It was still nice, but if you can sit outside, do.\n\nThe place was hopping. Live music, people everywhere and constantly coming in. It's not quiet for sure, but my table didn't have to struggle over the noise to carry on conversation which I appreciate.\n\nMETRO\nThe red and purple lines each have a Pershing Square station, so taking the subway is a very convenient way to get there from the valley.\n\nGreat night!

Usually reservations through O.T. is the same as calling. Reason being one is mostly given great service and location of seating is great. We arrived early to have a drink. Checked in and was seated right away outside to a plain table. No setup, candle nothing as if to say. 'Lets stick them here'? Two girls were sitting on a settee close by and soon 6 more friends showed up and there wasn't enough seating for all? So a party erupted? Service was very fast. Maybe too fast? At the end we ordered from the dessert menu. It came with a candle for our 30th anniversary which was nice but then we were charged for the dessert? So I guess this is not a place for special occasions if you are over 50? The food was great, but something was missing

My husband and I came here on a Saturday night for a late dinner. We had a reservation at 8:15pm and table was ready on time, but I requested to sit outside so we waited another 20 minutes or so for seating. The wait was ok since there was a band playing so we just listened to them. The place was energetic and fun! Once seated, our service was great, view was wonderful, food was good (Brussel sprouts!) and ambience was nice. The band played some r&b music which we loved and made the experience very enjoyable! The place was packed by the time we left (about 10:45) with people waiting to get up to the 16th floor which I guess is more of a lounge as opposed to the 15th floor which is the restaurant. All in all, great spot, we will definitely be back!

I love Perch! I especially like to go to the happy hour during daylight, because they have great prices on some nice happy hour food items, good prices on drinks as well, and of course the fantastic view. I frequently suggest it to people who are coming from the west side to see me, and who had not known about it before, and they are always very impressed with it. It's also great that it is across from the Metro station. My only complaint is that they will not seat me before my entire party arrives, and the fact is that people are frequently late to Perch because of what it takes to get up there, with the 2 elevators. So I do not love having to wait until people arrive to be seated, especially when I have gone to the trouble of making a reservation. I have also had the experience of sitting in the wrong spot outside, and the sun really gets in your eyes in a large section of the outside area at certain times of day. Also, at times they do have music, and the music tends to be too loud for the space. So I wish they would go for music that is a little more coffee-house style; a little more mellow.

Where to start? I guess from the beginning. I booked my reservation to celebrate my wedding anniversary. Upon arriving, the lobby attendant was courteous and directed to the proper elevator. Elevator doors opened and another employee politely directed us to a second elevator which lead us to the hostesses. I gave her my name and she replied with, 'Happy Anniversary.' Just like that she scored me brownie points with the wife. After I gladly pocketed my brownie points and replied, 'Thank you', she handed me a pager and informed me my table would be ready shortly. I didn't mind because we arrives early. The hostess, now with the mostess, suggested we past time at the roof top bar. I believe this required another short elevator ride. They do have stairs to access the roof top bar. Once we exited the elevator, we were greatest with a panoramic view of Downtown Los Angeles. Amazing. The time was about 6:35pm and the crowed was a mix of people dressed for dinner and people who had been there for a few hours. All in all, a good crowd. We only had time to order one drink and take two or three photos before our table was ready. Our table was outside on the north side of the building, opposite side of the live band who did an amazing job singing covers. Okay let me wrap this up. Waitress was great and attentive. She didn't bother us or leave us wondering if she had fallen off of the building. The food taste great and the presentation was good. I will be returning!!!

This is the perfect place to bring out of town visitors for a unique bird's eye view of downtown LA and a change from the ubiquitous Italian and Mexican menus that predominate our area. The signature cocktails are worth trying - I appreciated that some of the concoctions are not syrupy sweet - and the wine list has some reasonably priced gems - the Austerity Pinot noir at $40 a bottle was very good. After several visits, we haven't had a really bad dish; the scallops are perfectly done in a creamy sauce; short ribs are tender and served with yummy beets; bouillabaisse is flavorful. The rabbit ravioli dish tastes could use some components for texture - the meat filling was a mushy pâté, and the sauce and pasta had the same soft consistency. If you are just having drinks or would like a savory starter, the cheese & charcuterie board has a nice variety of things to share. \n\nThe terrace is festive on a mild winter evening when Pershing Square is lit up with holiday lights and the skating rink is active with skaters. Note that there is no valet parking before 7 PM; there is reasonably priced parking at the Athena lot at the corner of 4th Street & Hill: $6 after 4 PM on weekdays and $10 all day on weekends and holidays.

Said it was a date in the Res Comments and that we wanted to sit in one of their romantic benches. When we arrived at only 4:45 and the place was nearly empty, we were told those were for parties of 3 or more. Had to sit across a table from each other where we could barely hear and couldn't even hold hands. Dirty dishes and wine glasses were left on the table for a really long time until we finally asked that they be removed. They open at 4 PM and our waitress went on a half hour break after ten minutes! They just don't seem to care if you enjoy yourself or not. I've been to Perch many times because it's close to work, but I'm just over their poor customer service and lack of caring. I was crushed that my date was such a cold experience strictly because of where we choose to go to dinner. You can get good food and drinks anywhere in this town, and their view is not even one of the better ones in downtown. It's sad, but I think I'm done.

Don't come here for the main entrees! The only thing worth eating here are the appetizers. I order the salmon and it was extremely over cook and bland. I couldn't finish it. My husband order the steak and it's was over cook again on his second time ordering this dish. Service here is super lacking! Our waiter was not very friendly and always rushing us. I would only come here for the rooftop Lounge and awesome live bands. This place gets super crowded so come earlier or you'll be stuck in a line just to get up to the rooftop lounge.

Perch is on their game and continues to provide a warm,welcoming service to accompany its always and forever consistent menu. My only wish is a change in the menu or some specials ...its a little boring to continue to return to the same menu...maybe that's why its so consistent and they don't WANT to change! We have never had anything less than perfection for our meal...service is off many times because they are understaffed.

This rooftop bar & restaurant in the heart of DTLA provide a beautiful picture of both old & new architecture in LA. \nThe food is a definite hit. For brunch we started with Assorted Fruit with Greek Yogurt and paired it with a pitcher of their Sangria.

We went to Perch to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We had eaten there once before and thought it would be the perfect location to celebrate, and we were not disappointed. The service was attentive, and the food was fantastic. When I made my reservation online through Open Table, I had noted that it was our 25th Anniversary. The hosts acknowledged this and congratulated us, plus our server, Christopher, presented us with complimentary glasses of champagne to commemorate the occasion. It WAS the perfect location to celebrate our 25th, and we thank Perch for that.

Perch is a unique endeavor to take an over the hill building and deliver a rooftop bar/restaurant.\nAlthough the bar at the top was closed for a private party, the dining area gave a great view of the city. The scene was frenetic on a mid-week night and so if you are looking for serenity seek options elsewhere. The menu is French inspired with some modifications to more casual dining. We opted for baked brie to start then we had the ribeye special and the steak frites and closed with crème Brule - all were good to very good. Server Pete got everything right although there were many folks moving around. View and scene are unique and combine fir memorable experience.

My friend & I dined here on 6/16/16. I, myself, had never been here before, but my friend had. I must admit that I read the reviews prior to dining here; consequently, I was expecting a “classy” ambiance, but it truly is not. You find a diverse group of people here, between business people in suits, to women in clubbing dresses, to individuals in casual attire like jeans and flip flops. But this place really works hard to make the environment feel bougie. Also, there is a live band on site.\n \nTo drink, my friend ordered wine. I ordered a “Penicillin,” this is an interesting drink with a strong ginger taste to it, but being that I really like ginger, I ordered a second one. To eat we ordered a Filet Mignon, Steak Frites that comes with Truffle Fries, Brussel Sprouts, & Truffle Poutine, for an extra fee, we “upgraded” our meat entrees to surf & turf meals, but I personally would not do that again, not good & not worth the extra expense. The steaks were both delicious, but the Brussel sprouts and the truffle fries were honestly the highlight of the meal & my friend and I both agreed on that.\n \nI failed to get our server’s name, but she was the BEST server ever, she was personable, cheery, attentive, & very helpful when it came to recommendations. In fact, she was so good at explaining the menu and describing the items, including the desserts, which she sold their bread pudding so well, we ended up ordering it, (and I don’t like bread pudding and nobody had ever gotten me to try it,) but she did and I do not regret it. The bread pudding was DELICIOUS.\n \nCombined, our total was almost $200, a bit more after the tip, so this is not a place for the frugal at heart. Truth be said, to dine here you really are paying more for the experience of viewing the heart of the City of Angels from a 13th floor balcony. And the view of the city skyline while dining on this balcony, can actually be pretty awesome. \n\nOverall, I recommend this place, but make reservations.

I would _not_ recommend Perch for an intimate 2-person date. Dining tables for 2 at less than 1 foot apart from each other, does not offer any amount of privacy for private conversation. Bar scene on a Sunday early evening was a younger demographic (20s-30s). The food was excellent, though I did not think adding the crab was anywhere close to worth the added $10.00 price. We stuck to wine/beer seeing the size of some of the specialty drinks would have been gone in 3 sips. Service was great, friendly staff - - especially the hostess who greeted us.

We went to Perch the evening of the first day of our recent visit to Los Angeles. We live in Vancouver, Canada, which is a great food town, so we are a little spoiled and our expectations can be high. Perch did not disappoint. First of all, the venue is amazing. It is located on the sixteenth and seventeenth floors of an historic building in the Bunker Hill area of downtown LA. We sat outside. It was a lovely warm evening and the view is incredible. Our waiter was a delight. The food was beyond reproach. The music was funky. And the bill was - given every thing I just described - ridiculously small. We will definitely go back on our next visit to Los Angeles, and probably every one from now on.

Perch La was great! I made a reservation for 2 about a week before dining, very easy to do so. We arrived and were seated immediately. The food was ok but we were going more for the ambiance and rooftop! BUT unfortunately there was a private event that night that had booked the rooftop until 9 pm so we thought we could go up after dinner. However they extended their event until 10 pm. This was a serious bummer since the whole reason we decided to do Perch was to get drinks and dinner on the rooftop. Next time I'll definitely call and ask if the rooftop will be available for everyone :)

I'm from Chicago and was visiting my boyfriend for Labor Day weekend. It happened to be his birthday, so I took him there for brunch. The view and ambiance were fantastic. It was a perfect early afternoon. Titus was our waiter and he was great! Thank you for serving us and making us feel welcomed and not rushed. The only two things 'semi-negative' that I will mention is that I had commented to the hostess about wanting a little 'birthday' dessert and he said he would take care of it; it never came. I ordered the huevos rancheros and was overwhelmed with the onion (and I'm a fan of them), so I didn't finish it. I would go back again for sure - whenever I'm in LA, but will order something else.

A friend's chicken was not thoroughly cooked... 3 friends had the chicken supreme and it was whatever just as the server said when asked 'how's the chicken supreme?' his response: its chicken! We had dinner to avoid the long line to the rooftop when we were ready for drinks but the line moved fast... although the hostess reluctantly allowed us to by pass the line.

I absolutely love Perch and come here all the time and have had nothing but amazing experiences every time. After many different visits I can safely say that Saturday nights here are NOT on par with the rest of the week. The crowd on saturdays is much younger and the place gets packed. We had a $400 dinner here but were told to wait in a 30 minute line to go upstairs to the bar area, even just to have a quick smoke. Excuse me? I think there should be exceptions made for the people who are dining at the restaurant versus the kids that came in from the street just to have a drink on the rooftop. It was not nice at all to be treated like that. We felt pathetic standing in that long line to go upstairs to the bar area after having just spent $400 for dinner. Management should rethink their policy on how they treat people dining in their restaurant. Safe to say I won't be coming here on Saturdays anymore.

The view was amazing, the food was exquisite, and the look on my wife's face was priceless. While it was our 1st time at The Perch, I can promise that it won't be our last. My only complain however would have to be the service provided by our waitress. After we were offered and given our drinks, we waited quite some time before the waitress remembered us, all the while she was attending the table next to us who were seated much after we were. To make matters worse, she took their order 1st and we watched them get their food before we did. That was frustrating to say the least.

Perch was a great hidden rooftop jem with amazing food with a even better view and great waitress but my experience was sullied because they have a rule that by nine 21 and under have to be out by nine (I'm 20) I went on the day of my birthday. The reservation was for 8 if I didn't not call to check onthe rule I would have been rushed out due to someone's non due diligence when I asked if an Accombation could be made a rude phone attendeds reply was either take the 730 time or I don't know what to tell you. So we arrive at 728 and were forced to wait and when I informed the Heinous hostes that I was forced to change my reservation till now and I changed plans because of this and I don't really have time to be waiting around as a result he reply was well that's just the resteraunt game. Then proceeded to tell us to go upstairs (witch was another 21 and over spot all day ) after coming back down she said oops that's right you can't be up there. Then on top of that we watched many party's of two get seated without hesation while we were left standing there. Then to top it off the manager stopped by every table but ours to see how the evening was. If it wasn't for the Amamzing and diligent waitress we had I would have just left.

It was good overall, but we had an 8pm reservation and they didn't get us a table until after 8:30 - and that was only once we went to check-in again. It seemed like they kind of forgot about us, then seemed confused in finding us a table. Also, their tables and chairs are definitely not made for dining, more lounging. I'm not sure if we got a lounge table instead of a real table because they were trying to seat us quickly (otherwise, we would've had to wait longer) but those tables are too short to sit under. If you're tall, you can't get your legs under them, so it was pretty uncomfortable. Otherwise, the service was great and the food was good, and the atmosphere is awesome. Next time, I'd just require a normal table (if those are taller, I don't even know).

Even with reservations we still had to wait. There were open tables in the area we requested and they were not seated even after we were. The female and male at the reception area checking in people were very impersonal. While the view and food were great and our waitress was nice, the cold reception at the host stand and 20 minute wait past our reservations time for no apparent reason causes me to rate this restaurant lower than I normally would. Let's hope your experience is better from a service stand point.

This was our first time to dine at this restaurant. The double elevator adventure lends itself to a cool adventure ahead though I would recommend possibly controlling occupancy a little closer. Information regarding parking recommendations should be more readily available to people not familiar with the area. The front house folks were very inviting and set the tone for a nice experience. There were great things and not so great about the table service. I was asked about food allergies, but was traded off wait staff without relaying already ordered items. But at the same time our waitress was amazingly sweet and helpful. The drink was very good but was served in a very small glass. The food was good, but over priced. The scallops were cooked to a turn and the bacon in the Mac n Cheese was scrumptious. Attempting to read the digital menu attached to this location was misleading and conflicting. This was overall a pleasurable experience and I would recommend it to friends, but the price tag is a little iffy for the common person for anything less than a special occasion.

Perch was wonderful! We loved it!

My pet peeve! If we were here first, we get serviced first. \nThe food was expensive, to be expected from a restaurant with those views, but I had the steak frittes for brunch and it was 'ok,' Nothing special. I probably wouldn't get it again. We asked for a side of two eggs and it was $6. So just know that . \nOther than that, we loved the vibe and they also had a nice jazz band playing.

Wasn't thrilled with this visit to Perch - though they have been better before. We made a reservation so we could sit on the balcony, but were seated in the sun with no apologies and no attempt to create shade with the umbrellas that were set up. Our server was also not very attentive, which meant no water refills until the end of our meal and no opportunity to get out of the sun more quickly. Making a reservation to get a sunburn wasn't what I had in mind for what was supposed to be a special brunch.

Perch is trendy with a great view. It's also pretentious, uppidy, and truthfully I kind of hate that I like it, but I do. It's totally a classically annoying LA crowd that frequents this place, people who love being 'seen,' so be warned. However, it can be worth braving the wanna-be actors and downtown banker types to check out the view at sunset or enjoy a mimosa and some tuna tar tar on the patio for brunch with friends. \n \nRe Food: I'd say brunch is better than dinner. Brunch food is pretty great - I've had the eggs Benedict, huevos rancheros, and tuna tar tar. Happy Hour munchies are also pretty solid (the quality of the food anyway, can't say the deal is especially outstanding) - all about those truffle fries. \nAmbiance: This is really the reason that you go to Perch, let's be real. They've got great seats on a wrap patio overlooking the city. The inside has a cool bar area too, very vintage and upscale look, but really - sit outside if you're gonna make the effort to come here.

Love this place...however..this time there were a couple of hiccoughs. Reservation for 6:30 for 4 and not seated until 6:50. I just don't expect that long of a delay especially that early. We ordered the beet salad to be shared between two of us and it was delicious and enough to be shared between 3. The other person ordered French onion soup and after we waited about 5 minutes and no soup we started eating our salad.. We finally had to ask for it and the server apologized and brought it right out and did not charge us but by that time the rest of us were done our salad..so it was nice of him to do that but we would have preferred to eat together and pay for it. 3 of us had the steak Frite. It is my favorite thing on the menu and those fries beyond delicious!! My husband said the chicken was the best he has ever had.

The menu is eclectic with interesting choices; the filet mignon was excellent, as was the pan seared salmon. The appetizers were also delicious and good portion sizes. The hard alcohol selection seemed a little pretentious, however they had a nice selection of draft continental beers. The restaurant was extremely busy, even though we had an early reservation, therefore the service was a bit spotty at times.

Aside from the view, there isn't anything about this restaurant to bring me back for second visit and here is why... \n\nOn a slow Tuesday night, it took 20 minutes of waiting after checking in before I decided to try to secure my own drink by going to the bar directly to ask if someone was going to take our drink order at our table in the lounge. The bartender, instead of asking me how he could help, redirected me back to my table and said that someone would be there shortly. While waiting, I observed numerous wait-staff talking to each other, hugging each other and ignoring customers. Five minutes after the time my reservation was set and with no one coming to my group to inform us our table was ready, I went to hostess desk to inquire about the availability of my table to be informed that in fact it had been ready. Instead of having an assistant hostess come to where my group was waiting and assist us with our drinks, I was asked to have my group come to hostess desk, once again another example, at this venue, the customer is unimportant. \n\nIf you have a patio-style restaurant, all heaters should work, but of course, they didn't. We had to move from our table to avoid the cold environment. To be fair, our server, Alex, provided quality service and she certainly knew how to properly serve the customer, but all others in the restaurant seemed uninterested in doing their job and more interested in each other. Who is in charge?\n\nHoping that things would improve once our dinner reached our table, it didn't. The food was extremely disappointing. The cheese course was probably the worst I've ever encountered. Bland and basic. All dishes, with the exception of the pasta with pesto sauce, had simple flavors and no depth or creativity.\n\nI have been a long time participant of Open Table and this is the first time I have submitted this type of negative review. A message to Perch, don't mistake trendiness and view as equaling quality and longevity.

The food was okay, not really up to the standard I was expecting. The service should have been better, although it appeared to be very busy. I would suggest they reduce their numbers in order to improve on the food and service as the dining room was not very big and it felt like I was in a fast food restaurant with the noise, groups of people and buggies blocking the walkways.\n\nHowever, the roof top bar was impressive and the cocktails delicious.

First time to Perch and it was everything i could've asked for! As you enter the Pershing building you go up the old school elevators to get to the rooftop. You're then greeted by someone to another set of elevators to take you to the restaurant. We were a few minutes late for our reservation but they were able to accommodate us right away. Wait staff was very kind and helpful. Gave amazing advice and tips on what to order and we were not disappointed. The french toast made with croissants was one of the most amazing things I've ever put in my mouth, and the crab benedict is not far behind. They were delicious to say the least.

Brought my girlfriend here for her birthday and the restaurant delivered in a big way. Waited a little past our reservation for a table outside to enjoy the rooftop view, so we sat at the bar and had a drink. Got called about midway through the drink and were seated at a table for 2 outside. Its very crowded, so I felt like I was sitting closer to the person to my left than I was to my date across from me, but it didn't ruin the meal or disrupt conversation. Pork belly appetizer was bomb, but very lacking in portion size. Girlfriend ordered the flat iron with truffle fries (both incredible) and I had the filet Oscar style. Both generous portions and cooked beautifully (tender, seasoned well). Orange creme brulee for dessert was also delicious. Our server was nice, very attentive and helpful. Very noisy, a lot of people, live band so be careful if you're looking for quiet. All in all I'd love to get back (if I could ever get another reservation haha)

I went to this location as a Late Night Date Night with my wife.\n\nOK to start off, the ambiance is MAGNIFIQUE!...It's a gorgeous location with a beautiful view of downtown LA.\n\nThe bar is also good. We had 'The French Maid' and it tasted GREAT!\n\nThe disappointment for us was the food and this is why my headline is what it is. For the kind of menu they offer, this should only be categorized as an American restaurant and not a French restaurant since their menu doesn't reflect French cuisine.\n\nSo if you're just looking for a nice and romantic hangout to lounge in, then this is definitely the place. Just don't have high hopes on the food...

Great view and it wasn't too hot. It took a few for us to get our waiter over but it was totally packed for a Tuesday evening. It was just before 6PM. \n\nThe place was recommended by our hotel , the Westin. We started out with the pork belly which had great flavor. The Boeuf Bordelaise was fantastic, cooked perfectly.

We had a great meal at Perch which is a very popular restaurant in DTLA. It was really busy, being a Friday night, and I felt that they were rushing us through our meal. We were celebrating our anniversary so I would have liked to feel less rushed when I'm trying to enjoy a special occasion. Also, since it's a popular restaurant they've crammed every square inch with tables so we were celebrating our anniversary with other tables 2 ft away from ours on either side. It's a great, fancy, yummy place with good service, but if you're looking for some alone time with your significant other with some privacy and relaxed vibe, this may not be the best option.

She had great recommendations on pre-dinner cocktails, entrees and desserts. She showed how knowledgeable she was when I asked a specific question about an ingredient in my main course. She even left a cute note on our bill. The surf & turf skewers with arugula salad were a great way to start. I had the rabbit ravioli which was simply divine. The wife had steak frittes and her meat was cooked perfectly. We finished up with the white chocolate bread pudding which was delicious.

I easily made a reservation for a mother-daughter date just four days prior, and overall our experience was pretty mixed.\n\nPROS:\nWe had a dinner reservation at 5:45pm when the dinner crowd started to pour in, and we were able to get a seat immediately. We ordered around 5:55-6pm (right when the happy hour was ending), and they honored happy hour prices without us having the ask. We had the beef sliders, fries, and beet salad. The food came out extremely quickly. The sliders and fries were AMAZING! Not greasy at all, light to eat, yet savory and perfectly satisfying. We were lucky enough to have gotten to pick a seat with the view of LA, which was so beautiful during that time. I can't think of any restaurant in LA that has such a relaxing ambiance with a breathtaking view.\n\nCONS:\nAt 5:45pm in July, the sun is still extremely strong and it's still about 80 degrees. There were about 4 open tables for a party of 2 in the same cluster, and the server was going to seat us in the only one that was in direct sunlight. We asked if it was okay sit at the next table instead, which was in the shade, and the server looked annoyed that we had asked for a seat in the shade. When we were seated, no attention was given to us and we waited about 10 minutes before we were able to flag someone down and kindly asked for a glass of water. Finally, our actual server came by our table to take out order. She was so rude and cold, barely giving us any eye contact and had no smile. As the other parties beside us began getting seated, we observed how completely different her demeanor was towards them - she was bubbly and constantly went by their tables asking if they needed anything. Thinking we had somehow upset her, we continued to make sure that we smiled at her and said our please and thank you's, but she was still so inattentive and rude toward us. I really hope other customers don't have to experience such cold service.

The food was good, although we were disappointed that it was not traditional French style cooking. It would have been a very unpleasant evening if we did not have the quiet of the outside dining. The restaurant was very accommodating and we appreciated that.

Came here after a Sunday matinee at the theater with the wife, hoping for a romantic outdoor experience high atop the city. It was unseasonable hot, but we figured it would get cooler fairly quickly after our 5:15 reservation. We were ushered to one of their much-criticized tables-for-two, stacked three-deep in a ridiculously tight space. I objected slightly, only to be met by eye-rolls by a staffer, so we just sat down and made the best of it. At least we were on the window-seat side of the three tables-for-two stack. Halfway through our dinner, another couple were led to the table a few inches to our right, and they also balked, but ultimately caved. \n\nHow about charging 25% more for the outdoor view tables and then removing 25% of the seating and redistributing the tables to get ride of the Gitmo vibe? Until then I won't be returning unless I'm in a large group.

Perch is located in a great old building downtown. To get up to the 15th floor, you take 2 elevators. Once there, you have a great city view. \nReservations are recommended as there were many people waiting in a line that went nowhere. They just wanted a drink. \nWe were sat right away for our 7:30pm reservation and the restaurant was already packed.

Enjoyed it all. If I had to do it over again, I would have made either earlier or later dinner reservations.. We were seated 1 hour after our reservation time. We were given free champagne once we sat. We should have been given the champagne while we were waiting. It would have relieved some of the tension.
