We came with a large eclectic crowd and everyone loved their selection of drinks and food. The salads and appetizers were a bit expensive, but worth it. A surprise quaint appetizer from the chef was a lovely touch. Would definitely go back!

I very much like the staff and ambiance at Perilla. Small, intimate, relaxing. The menu is rather limited. Four of us shared the signature duck meatballs with mint, tasty but small for $15. The honey gem salad my husband and I shared was SO SALTY that it made my ankles and feet swell up. I can honestly make a much... More

Last night, we had the finest meal out we've had in a very long time. It all comes together here - fine food, gracious staff and a comfortable setting. We got the restaurant week menu plus a couple of small dishes, all of which enjoyed thoroughly. The roaster mushrooms were stellar. I have to give a special shout out to... More

Well the atmosphere is nice , cosy and romantic the service is awesome. Had the restaurant week menu the mule was great but the amber jack fish was dry and the rice was overcooked to the extent that it was crunchy but at least it tasted better than the fish which was lacking flavor .. The chocolate soufflé was great... More

We originally came here because the head chef, Harold, won season one of Top Chef, It is a small restaurant with very cool decor. I loved the meal I got as well as everyone else's food. The bar drinks were very sophisticated and dessert was unforgettable. We ordered just about everything on the menu so we could taste it all... More

What a great find. Outstanding selection, food, services and at reasonable (for NYC) prices. Try the pork chop, pollock and tuna. All are outstanding. Reserve 1 of the 2 booths. They're comfortable and afford a great view of the dinning area. Nightlife surrounding the area is spectacular. There is (virtually) no parking. Take a cab.

Arriving on a quiet night at Perilla we had a very pleasant pre-dinner drink at the bar. The hostess advised us that she was setting up the best table in the house for us. Our two apps consisted of a very simple salad of local tomatoes and another salad with crunchy mussels that had been flash fried. Both hit the... More

I've eaten at Perilla once before, three years ago. I'm happy to say that the quality and amazing food I enjoyed then is just as delicious and wonderful today. We were celebrating a graduation and a birthday, and Perilla did not disappoint. We ordered the tasting menu - and spent an evening sampling one amazing dish after another. The balance... More

Great little place that features fresh, season Nouveau Americana cuisine with a slight, occasional hint of Asian influences.....a tell-tale Harold Dietele (Top Chef winner and owner) signature approach. Wine list is creative and affordable with interesting array of offerings. If you don't recognize any, ask Jamie (restaurant manager) to help you...she is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Every course was wonderful. The service was friendly and efficient but not overly solicitous. The wine list was fine with many good, affordable choices. My experience with celebrity chef restaurants is that they're pretentious. The food is presented nicely but doesn't always live up to its looks. This experience was different. We ordered risotto, muscle salad and cucumber salad appetizers.... More
