Visiting from out of town. Ordered Miso soup and edamame and the sushi and sashimi combo platter. Miso was overly salty but the rest of the meal was great. Sushi and sashimi were silky and smooth and wait staff was attentive and not overly solicitous. And it did not take a long time for dinner to arrive which has not always been my experience in sushi restaurants. Nice job

Perrys rooftop is my favorite in DC. The sushi is wonderful and the staff is very helpful. I always love summertime and Perrys!

The atmosphere was so beautiful and classy! We were celebrating my birthday and at the end of the amazing dinner they brought out my dessert with a sparkler on top. We created a wonderful memory there! Loved the food, service and of course, that view.

I really liked the food but the hostess didn’t inform the waiter that we were celebrating something or had written a little note in our reservation request.

Perry's is one of the best, and best managed, restaurants in Adams Morgan. The staff are wonderful, the food is great, ambience is classy but laid back and very comfortable, decor is tasteful. What more could you want?

This restaurant had a very lovely atmosphere and a beautiful rooftop. My dinner guest and I found the food to be good but not unique and memorable. The chicken wings we ordered came out cold and kind of mushy and when we sent them back our waitress was very gracious, but then she came back with mushy wings again. The employees at this restaurant are very very nice and accommodating but again, we felt like you could get this food at any decent restaurant. It’s all about the rooftop for this place.

I loved the atmosphere. Nicely decorated and good musics. Service was friendly and professional. My kids liked their sushi. I ordered ramen. It looked good but had little taste to it; not nearly as good as several other places that admittedly specialize in ramen

The ramen wasn’t good, it’s like they put it on the menu so they’d have it, but they aren’t going to devote time to it. Chicken wings as an appetizer and also not that great. The sushi, on the other hand, delicious. Should have made that the entire dinner.

The food was great, as was the service....once the bartender began waiting on us. Our best guess is that we were sat just outside of any of the servers’ sections, and as such we weren’t waited on for 35 minutes. Really a shame, as we have had great experiences there previously.

The sushi and sashimi for two was -amazing-. My only complaint was that the nigiri had wasabi hidden underneath the fish and that was an unpleasant surprise for me, as someone who doesn’t like wasabi at all. Otherwise, A+ dish all around!

I have been looking for good sushi in the DC metro area for a while and this seems to be a staple- so I was happy to try it. The sushi was great, really fresh and buttery fish. Yum. Service was okay but they did try to make up for it (we didn't actually express any dissatisfaction) with some free sake which was appreciated. Overall, really solid sushi spot.
