After hearing advertisements on the radio for about a year, my husband and I decided to give Perlo's a try tonight. And boy, are we happy we did!! The food was absolutely amazing!! The meatball appetizer is to die for and the salmon special with the tomato horseradish cream sauce was out of this world. Seriously. I would have licked... More

We left our viewing of the enjoyable movie "Chef" with a yen for the featured Cubano sandwich. We headed for Good Smoke in East Rochester only to bounce off the door as it was Memorial Day. After driving past too many closed restaurants, we spotted one "Open Today" sign outside this dark green haven. Inside, we gravitated toward a fresh-air... More

My partner and I have been eating at Perlo's at least once a week for the past few years and don't plan on changing our routine anytime soon! Thank you Perlo's!

They serve breaded or beer-battered fish fry every day of the week. It was a Saturday and our party all selected the fish fry even though they have many other selections and specials of the day.

Maybe an exaggeration, but remember coming here a bunch of years ago and being less than impressed. Friends invited us, so martyrs that we are, we consented. Had a drink at the bar, served by a very pleasant bartender. Seated, then attended to by a young lady {Carol Ann} who was helpful and engaging and really good with our group,... More

We have eaten at Perlo's many times. Both of our grown children pick it as the place to go for their birthday dinner. We have tried a great many items on the menu and all have been good. If going on a weekend night, would be good to call for a reservation.

We made reservations for Valentine's Day and were dismayed when we arrived to find the parking lot and close streets jam packed. How long do you think we'll have to wait? Well, no time at all! The restaurant is quite large and crowded with tables. Seems to be a local favorite as many people appeared to be friends of each... More

DON’T BRING A CAKE!!!!!! The waiter and waitress were outstanding, food was good, and atmosphere was more comfortable than The Northside Inn. We were there to celebrate my mothers and wife’s birthday, we brought our own cake, the staff present if well. At the end when the waiter brought us the bill he notified us that we were being charged... More

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go out for dinner and were able to get a reservation at our desired time. Antipasto for two was more than enough for four. I had a special of the night - French trio of chicken, shrimp and artichokes all deliciously tender over angel hair pasta and wonderful sauce. My... More

The service was terrible. The food is barely mediocre. The seafood mac and cheese was awful. Grey scallops? Really? Lamb shank was dry, though the sauce was good. And my 15 year old said the calamari tasted like the shrimp poppers at her high school.
