To die for views, great food selection, caring service. Pricey compared to other options on Ashford Ave.

Booking is essential in this restaurant and when you taste the food, you can understand why! The wine list is good although expensive

Ok, so the view and ambience is good here. The wait staff and kind of snobby condescending. The food was good but not great. The lobster we ordered was good but was 2 left halves of 2 different lobsters. One half was smaller than the other as well. When we asked the waiter about getting 2 different halfs he lied and then when we showed him he stumbled and could not give an answer why we got 2 different lobster halves. Sea bass was good but portions were small.

Despite some mixed reviews on TA I am happy to report that Perla is still something special. Beautifully lit and appointed, Perla is the place to dress up and have a romantic dinner. Service is fine and not overbearing. The food is excellent. We had cauliflower soup and shrimps to start followed by Chicken stuffed with mancecho and Serrano ham and perfect seared tuna with crunch lentils in a Szechuan pepper sauce. Truth be told I had to send it back as it was tepid but it came right back. Desserts were interesting and we shared the carrot cake. We found the price to be quite fair around $135 with two glasses of wine. Nice night out.

Have been a couple times before and was superb both times. This time things started good with a great Pinot Noir. Wife had the house special sea bass. Was not good. Very fishy tasting. I had the dorado which was excellent. She would have sent it back but nobody came back for a while. She ate the sides and a few bites of the fish but was disappointed as we look forward to going here. Will be back in two weeks for a few days stay but not sure this will be on our list for a while.

Thank Richard I
