Sunday brunch at Perch became something of a velvet rope situation... waiting for the 'hostess' to give us the high sign that we could come in. We were brought to the backyard where there were at least 4 open tables which left us scratching our heads as to why we had been left waiting outside for so long, since we hadn't witnessed a stream of people leaving moments before. We ordered coffee/drinks before our third arrived but no worries nothing arrived until well after our third arrived. Then a long while longer our food arrived, cold: baked eggs, salmon and leeks. By then we just wanted to get through the experience and get out of there; so, sending it back wasn't an option. There's plenty of good places to eat at on 5th Avenue in Park Slope; do yourself a favor and skip Perch.

First day of relative sunshine in a week and decided to go for breakfast with a neighbor... First comment, after sitting;"no sausages for breakfast", also "ran-out" of large tea cups "...would you settle for a small one". Eggs with leeks and salmon was dull and thrown on a plate. My mate dropped her knife on the floor at the beginning of our meal ( waited 25 minutes to be served), requested another one but never arrived... Awful service, mediocre food but cheap prices. You get what you paid for, I guess...

I'm not sure what other have ordered here, but I have been to Perch several times and have always liked the food. They make a good brunch and a great dinner. try the Matabre special on Thursdays, very yummy! They also have a nice wine selction and garden sitting in the back.

It looks like such a cute place, and the menu looks good - unfortunately, it's not. Our salad was overly sweet and lacked other flavors, the curry soup tasted more like paper mache mixed with apple juice, and the daily special (pulled pork sandwich for $14) came out bland, dry, and without any sides at all. The waiter informed us they didn't have any sides at the time...so...you know. All in all, I have no idea how this place survives in Park Slope. Would not recommend it - unless every other restaurant on the block goes out of business. No, still wouldn't recommend it.

Perch is the kind of place that makes me cringe a bit - strollers galore, poetry jams, hipster service. However, I cannot deny how much I enjoy their food. Their pesto is one of the best I have ever had. I've had a few sandwiches, which have all been delicious. Their drink menu is surprisingly awesome. It's a little pricey for what it is, but the food is so good and it's only a block away from me. If you have no aversion to strollers or hipsters, I suggest you get there on an empty stomach, stat!

Not sure what the other reviewers experienced here, but I frequent this place at least 1-2 times a month and love the food. I was there the other night for dinner and the server was great, funny and attentive. Maybe they've made some improvements, but I think the food is always fresh and a great deal for the price. I'd recommend the fondue, I LOVE the rosemary chicken and the Waldorf salad!

The people who work here are unpleasant and out to lunch - unfortunately, at a different restaurant. Almost impossible to get service here and the blah, uninspired food in no way makes up for the general ick factor of this place. Wish so much an inexpensive sandwich-salad cafe would open up on fifth (s'nice is - nice - but repetitive) anyway, Perch sure isn't it.
