    The food was OK, but service was terrible. The place was short staffed for Sunday brunch. We sat on the patio near an open door and it was too windy with the door open or too hot with the door closed. Staff were inattentive to this issue, as well as refilling water, drinks, bringing the check, etc.

    We would have given it a 5 if it wasn't for Kathleen, our waitress who had zero customer service. The food was delicious, the restaurant is very beautiful, the host was very polite and kind, the valet did an excellent job. But pur waitress/server zero!!

    Perfectly pleasant experience. Table of 8, one dinner came out incorrect, scallops instead of crab cakes, so the host had the kitchen redo, took a little longer than stated but all in all it was fine. The host was very kind and comp’d us dessert and an entree. For our troubles. Six bills out the door.

    We went to Perennial specifically for their Boards and Bubbles Sunday Brunch. After we were seated, we were told that only one of the four boards was available—the pastry board. This was very disappointing. We ended up ordering the chef’s omelet of the day and the pastry board. The omelet was excellent and the pastries very fresh and flaky. The manager comped our beverages and gave us a gift card for a future date to make up for the lack of boards. We will definitely return, but we will call first to see if the boards are available.

    Everything was fine. Nothing exceptional. They uncharged me $3 for putting anchovies on my Caesar salad. They asked me if I wanted them On the salad which is usually pretty standard for a Caesar salad. Nickel and diming is a huge turn off. Not my first time at the restaurant will likely be my last.

    I love the food here, as well as the ambience and the service. It was all superior to any restaurant in the area and perhaps beyond. Great use of the space and beautiful decorations. My sons and I had full meals with appetizers and dessert, and they had cocktails. Of course we traded, and everyone agreed that everyone’s meal was superb. And valet parking makes it ridiculously easy.

    What a pleasant surprise! We live in an area that is severely lacking good places to eat, and my wife and I were so happy to have found Perennial. It’s a large restaurant but very nicely laid out, and very attractive. The complimentary valet is such a nice touch as well. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was incredibly nice - which was also refreshing. The craft cocktails were very good, specials were creative and perfectly prepared. Our server (Madison) was excellent and we would happily ask to sit in her section again. The manager stopped by to check on us and was as pleasant as everyone on the team. We want to give the Perennial staff a huge pat on the back for a really nice date-night experience. We’ll be back soon.

    Food was excellent. My wife had the flat iron steak and savored every juicy bite. I have a pet peeve with a la carte restaurants that charge you for sides. The grilled asparagus was delicious but the mashed potatoes were very ordinary and, given the portion size, were not at all worth $9.00. On the other hand, the Bronzino Cacciatore was excellent. This was the chef creating a cacciatore sauce that perfect complemented the perfectly cooked fish. Okay, call me old but the atmosphere was loud. With glass walls and wood floors and ceilings, the restaurant was built to be energetic. It was hard to have a conversation with my wife though who was just a few feet away and always hanging on my every word, even after years of marriage.

    Always a great time at Perennial. One of the best brunches in town. They unfortunately “tweaked” their burger, it was one of the best around, now it’s average. So sad, don’t fix what aint broken! Oh well, the carpaccio and eggs benny are still good (please don’t tweak those!).

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday. Food was good, waitress was not! However, the Manager was aware of the waitress slow attention to her customers and comped some of the bill and apologized and was very nice. Although, the waitress was not attentive, the manager and the food made up for the bad service. Overall I would recommend this place!

    30 minutes to get our table after our reservation time. Stuck at the bar and we don’t drink. Not fun. Despite having a 30 minute delay to get our reserved table they were still taking reservations in open table for the seatings 30 minutes after ours. Food was fantastic as always but not well organized service.

    Exceptional Customer Service Leads a Positive Outcome My wife and I booked a high-top table at Perennial in Towson for 7:15 PM last night. We checked in and the hostess said they were running late, but she would let us know when our table was ready. We waited at the bar for almost 45 minutes before we got seated. The hostess apologized and thanked us for our patience. We hoped things would get better, but we sat for another 10 minutes without water, bread, or anyone to take our order. We were hungry and frustrated. I went to the hostess and told her we had yet to have someone visit our table. I knew the Atlas group had a reputation for customer service, but they were failing us to this point. I asked for a manager to come to our table. Alex, the assistant general manager, came over and listened to our complaint. He was deeply sorry and offered to fix the situation. He brought us some bread and drinks instantly, while our server was still busy with a large table that required an excessive amount of attention to explain the menu. It took her another 10 minutes to get to us. She was nice and helpful, but the kitchen was slow. We didn’t get our appetizers until close to 9:00 PM. That is an hour and 45 minutes after our reservation time. Alex was the hero of the night. He checked on us regularly, apologized, and made sure we had a valuable experience. He gave us a $50 gift card for any Atlas group restaurant. The general manager also came by at the end and offered us free dessert. He was sorry too, but Alex was the one who saved our night. He cared about us and turned our bad night into a good one. He deserves praise from his boss. We are grateful to Alex, our server Madison, and the Atlas group for their amazing service on a tough night for the kitchen.

Our server, April, was fabulous and just the right level of attentive. In no way did we feel rushed or like she was hovering over us. If you are in Towson, come here. You won’t regret it! We will definitely be returning ASAP with friends and family!

    We enjoy going to Perennial for brunch and for special occasions! Food is always very good. Waitstaff is professional. The restaurant is lovely. Sometimes a little noisy. We went here for dinner in August 2023 to celebrate my retirement. They knew the reason we were there and bent over backwards to make the evening extra special for us. Our server was outstanding. It was absolutely a wonderful and memorable dining experience.
