“yummy interesing location”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Located in the Latin Quarter of Milwaukee, the fringe areas can put some people off, the restaurant however offers good solid Mexican fare, a mechanical red pepper you can ride and an upstairs balcony. Prices are good and the servers polite. seating area.

“Fine dining at fair prices”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

La Perla is about as authentic as you can get, with surprising menu items, like shrimp bisque. Portions are large, atmosphere homey and laid back. Waitstaff are friendly. Excellent value, and we go there every time we're in Milwaukee.

“Great Service”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Always a fun dinner spot to meet friends. Service is super fast. Location is convenient to downtown, and parking hasn't been an issue.

“Great Food, Service and Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went here on a busy Saturday evening. Yes this is a loud place, be forewarned, you won't be whispering sweet nothings into anybody's ears here. However, for great food and excellent drinks and an overall energizing atmosphere, this is a great place. I enjoyed this establishment more than their competition across the street and to the north. Don't forget to ride the "Pepper"!
