Well I made a reservation months ago for a special ladies night out. When we arrived we realized that the restaurant hasn’t been open for months:( I’m not sure who dropped the ball on this one? So needles to say we were scrambling to find someplace to eat before attending our play.

Perch Cafe was closed for the season, and learned of this from a security guard inside the building wondering how we got in. This restaurant should take down their booking ability.

We have been to The Perch many times and always find it a satisfying visit. The views, ambiance, service and food have always been very good. We look forward to more umbrellas and a gluten free bread choice.

Great views of the city. Seating area nice. Limited menu and then a couple of things not available. Very small portions for the cost. Happy hour food menu odd as same price as regular menu.

We brought some friends to celebrate their engagement after having a wonderful experience last year. This time did not live up. It was only 8pm on a Friday and they were out of half their menu. Some plates were pretty good while others missed the boat completely. Something seems to have changed since last year. The service was okay. Nothing stood out besides the view which is spectacular. We went at dusk to enjoy the sunset.

Nice atmosphere, and beautiful view, but thats about it. Prices are too high for the quality and quantity of food. The drinks were also priced too high and werent that great. The waitress was knowledgeable and attentive though. I would recommend maybe have one drink there at the most, and then try somewhere else.

We didn’t realize it was a tapa, but were happily surprised with the outcome. Food was really good. Service was alright. Food came out quite fast. The view is spectacular overall we had a amazing time. Also I’m vegan and they had a great selection of plant based options!

My sister from MB was in town. It was raining so very disappointed we couldn’t sit outside. Would not return unless we could as the noise level inside was way to loud. Your patio is stunning though

The drinks were fine. Nothing special. The food was not very good, however. Pretty flavourless and unsatisfying. The service was friendly but not very attentive. Overall, it felt pretty amateurish. The only thing that was outstanding was the view. I’d recommend going for a drink and maybe a snack then moving on for your meal.

Overpriced and poor value. We spent like 80$ and thought about finding something else to eat after. The bread was the most filling and not worth the total value.
Pick somewhere else.

Unfortunately the weather didn't help us out and we had to sit inside instead of enjoying on of the best patios in town. The inside of the restaurant is small but cozy. The food was very good-fresh ingredients full of flavor and unique. The service was great-the server was able to join in with our group easily. The only down side was if you have to use the bathroom, you have to go back outside and around-this sucks if it is raining.

Service was very poor. We could even find our server for about a 1/2 hr. The food was awesome ... I enjoyed the grilled cauliflower and chocolate peanuts butter tarte. Rooftop patio is very nice however, the service is pretty horrible so I probably won’t be going back.

We had planned to sit on the amazing rooftop patio, however the weather changed at the last minute so we had to sit indoors. The music was very cool, and enjoyable. The menu has been changed for shareable plates.

Good food, good service and exceptional view on the rooftop terrace make this restaurant a fun place to spend a relaxing evening. Be sure to try the excellent paella. The s econstructed apple pie sounded just a slight bit more interesting than it eventually turned out to be but definitely an interesting idea. For beer drinkers there are delicious artisanal beers on tap.

The Bar Manager Matt was very attentive and friendly! Recommended some awesome drinks that he created (which were fantastic) and made sure we had a great time! He seems to have put a lot of effort into the reopening of Perch and deserves a lot of recognition for his commitment and dedication. Thanks for a great time Matt! We will be back. 😊

Horrible and inconsiderate service.
Food was pricey for what it is: paella was 40$ and it was incredibly dry, the rest of the plates were just meh. Absolutely nothing special or noteworthy about the food

Our first time to this restaurant. The outside patio looks outstanding, but it was raining so we were inside in the small restaurant/lounge space. It was very loud and more like a bar. We were seated on a sofa so had to balance our food either on a small table or our laps. Having an intimate conversation was a challenge.
Food was good, but nothing really stood out. We will most likely try it again, drinks and appetizers would be great on the patio.

View, quality, yummy.
Honestly was happy to pay for the food we got, it was well crafted and well executed.(I am a chef of 20 years international experience, I would let you know if it wasn't legit)
Every other detail about ambiance was amazing.
Perhaps if for the sake of a good well rounded review, I must critique something. You may consider moving your server bill printer to a more secluded spot. Happily your business was so robust that it never stopped printing.

Will return for sure!

I was finally able to make it in after being turned away without a reservation previously or finding the business not open at all. The view is pretty spectacular although the giant fireplace obstructed most of our tables view. The menu had a few mislabelled special dietary items but I was able to order something that I could eat and I enjoyed it. Service was very friendly. I found it strange that the Ellis entrance is locked on Saturdays with no signage or direction to use the Doyle entrance. Overall good but a little pricey.

It was a lovely meal and the the atmosphere is fantastic. The only improvement that I would suggest is that they play some music. It was very quiet with only conversations. Over all 10/10

The food was small portions and expensive! We spent far more here then other comparable places. We went for the view, but the view actually isn't much since the lake facing side isn't licensed for the restaurant (you can't bring a drink from your table there to enjoy and look at the view either). It was nice to look at, but the restaurant portion is off to the side and small with downtown building views.

So Lovely! Bring your sweater and it will be worth it! Little chilly as it’s an open air roof top restaurant, but one of the few places in Kelowna that isn’t over the top loud. Small menu, but very tasty and wonderful staff. We will be back!!!!!
