I've eaten at Perilla once before, three years ago. I'm happy to say that the quality and amazing food I enjoyed then is just as delicious and wonderful today. We were celebrating a graduation and a birthday, and Perilla did not disappoint. We ordered the tasting menu - and spent an evening sampling one amazing dish after another. The balance of flavors and attention to detail with every dish was incredible. Everything was fantastic, the wine was great, the servers were attentive, and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was expensive for the three of us, but totally worth the expense for the meal of a lifetime.

Great little place that features fresh, season Nouveau Americana cuisine with a slight, occasional hint of Asian influences.....a tell-tale Harold Dietele (Top Chef winner and owner) signature approach. Wine list is creative and affordable with interesting array of offerings. If you don't recognize any, ask Jamie (restaurant manager) to help you...she is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Every course was wonderful. The service was friendly and efficient but not overly solicitous. The wine list was fine with many good, affordable choices. My experience with celebrity chef restaurants is that they're pretentious. The food is presented nicely but doesn't always live up to its looks. This experience was different. We ordered risotto, muscle salad and cucumber salad appetizers. Each one was unique and enjoyable. I had the cod, which I highly recommend, and the white chocolate mousse was out of this world, paired with sorbet, and just a wonderful end to a wonderful meal. Thanks for a memorable birthday.

Comfortable, warm, accommodating and thoroughly delightful. That's the take on this West Village restaurant, now in its 8th year. Casual yet professional service, no-nonsense decor, cuisine that goes from adventurous to reliable, and varied and reasonable wine list give Perilla loyalists a reason to return, again and again.

The food, the ambiance and the service were absolutely impeccable. It was exactly what I was hoping for for my birthday. The cocktails were top notch, the duck fat popcorn a real treat, and every appetizer, entree and dessert was amazing. Highlights included the duck meatballs, the tofu appetizer, the steak, the pork chop, and the chocolate soufflé. Sarah gave some of the best service I can remember as well. Thank you Perilla for a perfect birthday meal!
