Perry Street is one of those places I keep going back to. Its nice serene atmosphere: spacious and minimal and sexy and kind of like LA. Its very friendly, professional, knowledgable, and often funny staff are attentive in such a non intrusive way. The food is an adventure, and feels really great to eat. I love Perry Street, and after dining one night at Commerce, the worst restaurant ever, I would rather pay $1000 bucks for a glass of water at Perry Street than get a free meal at Commerce............

Excellent cuisine, friendly and inconspicuous service. The atmosphere is quite and intimate. But don't expect the wine list one would find at Babbo.

As a group of 5 x Irish women travelling to NY for a weekend. This little gem of a restaurant was without a doubt a highlight of our eating schedule!. Every dish was cooked to perfection in our opinion and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, not to mention the service by the lovely staff which made the meal complete. Don't miss it, a super spot!

Sublime food in serene setting

We recently enjoyed a lovely lunch at Perry St. The minimalist white room is warmed by views of the river and artful lighting. The staff, from front desk to waiters, are charmingly efficient. The value, from a reasonable bottle of malbec to the lovely dishes, is amazing, especially for New York. Tastes and textures varied from subtle to punchy. The amuse-bouche of intense celery and beet soup woke the taste buds for the pleasures ahead. The mushroom and avocado carpaccio, the arctic char sashimi, the crusted tuna and the cod with lemon crumbs, sweet garlic broth and broccoli rabe were superb. Desserts were equally complex and satisfying. This is an outstanding restaurant.

Because I tend to be more of the conservative, "Gramery Tavern" type diner, a friend of mine told me that while the food at Perry is excellent, she didn't think I would like the "scene." When I showed up on a Friday night at 9:00, I was very pleasantly surprised. Perry St. is sheek without being over the top modern. The clean lines and minimal decor still manage to be extremely warm and comfortable thanks to a good amount of space (by New York standards) and great lighting. I appreciated that tables didn't need to be shifted in order for me to take my seat, as well as the fact that the girls next to us weren't on top of our conversation, nor us on top of theirs. I found the food to be delicious in a very simple way, but still very interesting. The homemade mozzarella with grapefruit appetizer was the highlight of the evening, and even the chef's amuse of celery soup with cranberry foam was phenomenal. Will definitely go back, and would recommend to anyone for any occassion.

Don't count on eating at the time your reservation cals for, unless you are a star. we waited one hour before we were seated. Fodd is excellant, service is good. Waiting without explaination makes everything else not worth it

I live in the UK and visited Perry St with NY friends. We had a lovely time, the food was excellent, I am still licking my chops when I think about the crab dumplings I had as a starter. The hostess was lovely and friendly. Nice relaxed atmosphere, I thoroughly enjoyed.

I went to Perry Street restaurant for an 8:00 PM reservation. We were not seated until 8:45 PM. I was not too annoyed and the hostess and maitre d were both very apologetic for the delay. We did the restaurant week special so $35 per person for a three course meal. The food was equisitiely delicious and elegantly presented. The waiter was very polite and courteous the whole time. I really enjoyed the friend chicken and the chocolate cake. Everything on the mean appeared excellent.

Waited 30+ minutes to order

At lunch, waiter forgot about us so we didn't get to order for approximately 30 minutes. People who arrived after us and ordered the same number of courses (3 course lunch) left before us so we were almost the last people there.

Hmmm... first few reviews above complain about service. We had no problems on a Christmas Day dinner. I guess, not too busy on such a day. Got there early and were seated quickly and the service was fine. Food was very good. Enjoyed it a lot and service was attentive but not pushy.
