A Saturday morning favorite. Love the fish plater. A friendly wait staff and good service. Always a crowd but worth the wait.

I love the food here. Always good service and a nice atmosphere--lots of character. The potato latkes are a particular favorite of mine. SO good! The almond horns are also wonderful and very big.

Best Jewish deli outside of New York city and Montreal. Wife is temporarily in the area for work and we've eaten here 3 times in 2 months. Haven't had anything yet that was not extremely tasty. Lightest matzoh balls ever. Excellent borscht. Pastrami, brisket, tongue all top notch. Only small issue is the need to charge for almost any change... More

My friend and I made two trips here in one day, first to the market for lunch and then to the restaurant for dinner. If we had time we would return for breakfast too! For lunch we had avgolemeno soup - amazing! And I'm an avgolemeno fan who has eaten it in Greece - and couscous salad. For dinner along... More

Me and my colleague had heard about Perly's and we were not disappointed. As being there our first time the menu however felt a bit overwhelming or confusing, so we ended up ordering the hot dogs with different toppings, which perhaps was not the best choice for me. Particularly not when looking at what the other tables were ordering, that... More

The restaurant is decorated with photographs and high booths. The service was speedy and friendly. I ordered a tuna melt sandwich and tzimmes and it was so big that I had to take half of it home. It was the best tuna salad except for my mother's. We would go there again and again

They are not joking when they tell you that Perly's was a Yiddish for delicious. The matzah ball soup is delicious as are their many delicatessen options. The decor and atmosphere are one of a kind and lead to engaging conversation at our table.
