Perch has a good selection of dishes with a modern feel. Staff are well trained and friendly. Be sure to go early and have a pre-dinner drink in the rooftop bar as it has fabulous views of downtown.

Ok food but overpriced and despite I said in advance that vegan option was required, there was only one or two options on the menu. I do not want a restaurant to cater to my specific needs but would like them to have the courtesy...of informing me if they cannot accomodate my vegan request. The food we ate was ok but was overpriced for grilled vegetables. Also, service was quite slow. But the view is niceMore

They charged me a 4.5% security fee but didn't walk me to my car after. Instead I just left the waitress a 10% tip instead of the usual 15% so everything is fine.

Perch has decided that a 4.5% fee added to our bill from now on is a great idea. It is for security. Well, I don't drink, am not the one being over served, getting drunks and acting the fool, a few patrons have done this....So, now they are adding on yet another fee to go with their Health Insurance fee, which I refuse to pay as I have been told again and again by staff at several places that have this fee that it does them no good. I simply add it to their tip. Now, that is money in their pocket. But Perch has gone to far now. I will not pay a mandatory fee for security that I don't want and don't need. This is a cost of the eatery that serves alcohol and does not know when to toss a guest. The food has always been good, but this is crazy, and it is not that great. There are many Downtown LA places to dine that have great food and odd, not arguments or silliness among the patrons. I will take my business elsewhere. I am an adult and act like one. I will not pay for Perch to deal with guests who should have had their tab closed hours before. It is becoming just a silly bar. I don't do silly, and sure not at their prices. The roof is nice.More

Used the Valet parking located outside the restaurant which cost $14. There was a short wait for our table which was situated outside with a view of the City. There was a fire & heat lamps. Service was brisk & after an hour we were...hurried along as others were waiting for our table! We were celebrating our anniversary & were given a complimentary desert to share. Service was non existent as others have stated but tips are expected! Food was good but not exceptional - would give it a miss if ever in LA again - sorryMore

We live in Oxford but hadn't been to The Perch for several years . But last month we had a light lunch of four starters and it was very good. So good that we went again two weeks later - and we'll go again. An...important part of the offer is the outstanding service - in our case from Drew a charming former teacher.More

We were on holiday in LA recently. A friend who lives locally made dinner reservations at Perch. We had a table with a rooftop view. And the view was phenomenal! Sadly I think the view is the only thing you would come here for. The...waitress had very poor customer service. Her attitude was that she could care less about our table. When we made enquiries about food or drink, she said she would ask the chef of the kitchen. Then when she next came back and didn't answer our queries, we asked if she had received any answers. It was very obvious that she hadn't asked the chef or kitchen and just made up responses. The charcuterie board was like something I could buy at a local corner store - very basic and uninteresting cheese, meat, fruit. Nothing special. I will say that the live music was wonderful! Very talented female vocalist. If I came back here it would only be for drinks and the view.More

The food was amazing and the view was a plus! Definitely a great spot for a date night. The only down side to the experience was our server Rosalind. I feel like there’s a way to give great customer service without stepping over boundaries. She...was being way too friendly with my partner and wouldn’t stop making too much eye contact acting as if I wasn’t present as well. If I return I would make sure to request a different server.More

The Perch is on the upper floors of an older office building so it's surprising when you walk in the lobby and are guided to an elevator to the 13th floor. Then you change elevators to the 15th floor. Then as you turn the corner,...the view out the the windows is stunning! We had a table outside. The views were stunning - the mountains to the east, the AT&T building directly across and the park to the west. The staff was warm, friendly and most helpful. The menu had a range of choices - both us had the sea bass with tasty carrots and risotto. All was quite yummy!More

Perch LA is supposed to be a high end restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles. It does have some patio dining areas with nice views of the city. After making my reservation, I received messages warning about their rules, including upscale casual dress code, check in...procedures, etc. The building lobby was dark and non-welcoming. I took an elevator to the 13th floor then another elevator to the 15th floor. The passageway was dated and unpleasant. The main dinning room and the bar looked out of style. My table was in the middle of the walkway in the patio area, very uncomfortable. The service was below average. The food was just average. The jazz singer was below average. They even charged a 4.5% Security Fee which I asked them to remove it. Well, they could have charged me for Elevator Fee, Entertainment Fee, City Lights Viewing Fee, etc. Upscale casual dress code? There was a 7 years old kid with sport jersey and short, running around. There were customers wearing T-shirts and jeans. They also managed to have the worst valet attendants. Perch is running down like the entire downtown area. There are many better restaurants in the same area. Perch is off my dining list.More

Prior to this night, the last visit was at least six years ago, and this restuarant is still top notch. The food was superb and consistent, the music and ambiance is above the mark compared to other rooftop experiences. Yuna was our delightful waitress -...fantastic in everyway, made the dinner even better. The bus boys moved us when we needed a heat lamp and helped us take pictures with the best view. We got to talking for a while with maitre d' Bret Wilson. He was one of the highlights for the night - welcoming, charismatic and funny, but he also runs the restuarant like the captain of a ship - very professional. Full Five Stars.More

Perch is one of the finest rooftop restaurant and bar located in downtown Los Angeles, California.

We booked at 10:15 p.m. for our 3rd round. Because the food service is required, we ordered one dish and a bottle of wine. After 45 minutes later, they asked one more food otherwise we need to close out. We spent USD120 for an hour...and should be leaving. This is the worst place in whole my life.More

View and the food saved the night but the service and the welcoming was horrible. We arrived in the building hearing people screaming at us because we took the residential elevator and not the other one (but no one told this to us). Once arrived...upstairs, the table was occupied by other people and we had to wait a little bit. Despite we were perfectly on time our table was given to other people. Meat and wine were good but served in a rude way. They tried to take my plate while eating !! And we felt kicked out after only 40mins since we seated; they told:”if you do not want the dessert now, here’s the bill, bye”. The lift to go away is massive, because there is only one elevator. Overall, I would not suggest this place.More
