“Up Up and Away”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I was delighted by this rooftop restaurant in downtown Los Angeles. The atmosphere was casual sophistication in a spectacular setting. It felt like a little breakaway vacation for the evening. Service as exceptional, both in the bar for happy hour and at the dining table, and the food was deliciously prepared. This is a great place for locals to take a date or an out of town guest. I would definitely go back for seconds and thirds.

“fabulous views”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

What a great location for a romantic dinner to finish out visit to Downtown LA. The lights from the city buildings offer the perfect backdrop to the restaurant and the outside tables were fantastic for a warm summer night.
While the menu was pretty straightforward it may not satisfy some looking for fine dining.
The food and the service was very good and the prices very reasonable.
Definitely worth a return visit.

“Great location, great food, great service ...”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We had a lovely brunch at Perch to celebrate my hubby's b-day. He ordered the steak with decadent fries. I would never rave about french fries but this one is just fantastic. So very tasty. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros which was bursting with flavors. Our waiter suggested french toast to share and I'm glad he did. That was the best french toast ever. He said that the batter was cream brûlée. Geez, I will order that again next time. Now about the view, there's no bad seat in the house to enjoy the lovely view of downtown Los Angeles. The paid parking is also convenient and not bad at $5 for an all day parking.

“Nice spot for breakfast ”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

What a cool spot. We walked there from our hotel & it really has a great vibe, from getting on the elevator in the lobby to switching elevators to the restaurant itself.
We sat at the bar while waiting for out table & had a few drinks & coffee. The drinks were a bit pricey right out the gate, but they were good & the bartenders are very attentive.
For breakfast we had a beet salad & huevos rancheros. The very salad was excellent & the huevos rancheros were average.
They had a live band, the place has great views & is full of energy for a Sunday morning. I can't wait to go back.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

I had the opportunity to have lunch at Perch last week and was amazed by the views food and service. The views of downtown Los Angeles were fantastic as was our server Chris. Food selection was a little limited but the two entries and two appetizers were delicious! ! If your looking for an impressive dining spot or romantic spot this is your new place.
