We visited Perla's on our trip to Austin and really enjoyed it! We started off with about 4 different types of oysters, and they were all terrific! Very clean, no shells, just great! For our main course I ordered fish and chips, my husband ordered scallops. While he LOVED his food, I thought mine was just ok. I've had better, and just had higher expectations. We did an oyster shooter after that and THAT was great! Loved that!

Our experience was good, it was pricey but the food was very good so worth it. Since we don't live here we probably won't be back unless we are visiting and have a craving for oysters! :)

Really enjoyed a meal with friends at Perla's. Service was fast and friendly, very attentive to our needs. I had an incredible piece of swordfish - every dish was delicious. Can't remember the name of the cocktail I had, but it was elegant, quirky and old-fashioned (something champagne lavender blackberry?). would happily come back in a heart-beat.

Freshest seafood I've had in a while. Nice to have a good second choice for fine dining. Nice portion size

We had a wonderful brunch here. The service was perfect, and the dishes were all spot on. I had an amazing version of a margarita, called "El Toro". Fantastic selection of Oysters. Eating (and spending) too much is my only complaint- but, man it was worth it!

Great food, fun staff, and worth the trip.

Perla's and Parkside are two of my favorite downtown places to eat. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
