I've been wanting to try this place for several months now, and I don't know what took me so long. Everything about our dining experience was fabulous! The vibe was very friendly, and not pretentious at all. The service was attentive and well paced without being obtrusive or rushed. The food was fantastic. We had the duck meatballs and octopus to start. For entrees we had the kingfish and pork. And for dessert, the donuts. The best things we ate were the duck meatballs, the meyer lemon gnocchi that came with the kingfish, and the lemon sauce that came with the donuts. Everything was great, but those dishes/elements really stood out. We'll be back soon for dinner and to try the brunch.

This is one of the most expensive brunch menus in NY. Seriously. An Omelete was $12 and did not come with anything - forget potatos or toast, it didn't even come with an orange slice. My friend's Chicken Parm was pretty good, but small and cost $14. That too came with nothing. The service was great and the food was tasty even though the portions were small, but for such a simple space it is way too expensive in my opinion.

Perilla definitely holds up to its reputation. We had the duck meatballs, king crab, duck entree and ravioli and we were basically licking our plates. Everything was amazing and we already have it in mind for our next special meal. Don't miss out.

I am a religious reader of menupages reviews but no restaurant has ever compelled me to contribute until now. Do not believe a bad word about this place, because they have it allincredible wine, outstanding food, and impeccable service. Don't miss the fiddlehead fern ravioli or pork belly, but you can't go wrong at this gem of a dining experience. To top it all off, when we asked to thank the chef at the end of amazing meal, we were taken into the kitchen immediately. Who could ask for anything more?

Went to Perilla while visiting NYC this last week. ONe of many who is a huge Top Chef fan. Reservations made and honored on time. Very fun and lighthearted atmosphere with people asking each other what they had and how they liked it. Staff very accomodating and pleasant. The food was fantastic, although at first I was a bit nervous with the limited menu, with no need to be. Was very excited to see Harold walking around although didn't he seem to want to be approached, which I can understand but would have loved to have congratulated him on his success. Am looking for property in the Village and would certainly make this a regular place to dine and bring friends to enjoy.

I went to Perilla for Brunch this past weekend. I ordered the duck burger and it was delightful. The patty was very moist and savory. The fries on the side were nice and crispy with amazing seasoning. The service was great and the restaurant was nice and quiet. Definitely a MUST!

My wife and I met our son and his wife for brunch on Sunday. We were looking forward to this having watched Top Chef and been a fan of Harold. While the selections were limited, everything was delicious, well prepared and nicely presented. My wife had the skate and the portion was generous, and out of this world. My son and I each had the duck burger with spicy fries - they ARE spicy - no complaints though - we loved them and the burgers were moist inside, seared on the outside and nicely seasoned with a bit of kick to them as well. Our DIL got the French toast and while not on the order of the French toast at David Burke and Donatella, was very good. All in all a very mice brunch - nice portions, well prepared and we will look forward to trying it for dinner.
