Success! Thanks for posting your review of La Perla. You’ve done the world some good today.

We took our daughter there to

We took our daughter there to celebrate an event and it was a big disappointment. First they wanted to seat us in a back room all by ourselves. The room was freezing cold. We got a table in the main dining area (bar) which was at least warm and there was activity. Service was super slow and indifferent. The chips for the salsa were stale. Food was OK but nothing special. Our daughter wanted the fried ice cream f... view more

Food was okay but couldn't ignore the bad smell of the table smelling like a dirty washrag was used to clean the tables. Service was okay. Asked 2 servers for extra napkins but they chose to ignore us. I guess it was too much of a hassle and they don't know how to provide good service. Will not return to this establishment.

No thanks

We had a party of 7 and made reservations at least a couple weeks in advance, and we still had to wait for an hour n 1/2. We were practically shoved into a back corner/closet kind of thing. The food was good, but I've defineetely have had better. This is like a college kid restaruant, and not for people looking for a decent meal

Can We Sit On the roof?

OK, The 2 most wonderful women in my life and I want to sit on the roof top. She came up out of breath...we were ready to order. Guac, cheese Ques, and Mango Salsa. 45 min for a wait. Margs were Neon green. Never going again. We knew that Botanas would be better but tried. Never again!

Good drinking environment; Fun atmosphere

Food is just okay. This establishment makes its money on the Margaritas (they are good). There are better places for Mexican, but this place has an energy that I enjoy. The tortilla soup is really good. I like lunches here better than dinners.

Don't believe the HYPE!

When I moved from Chicago to Milwaukee one of the things I told everyone I would miss was the great Mexican food. I would have to say that at least 9 out of 10 people I asked for a recommendation said ""go to La Perla, it's the best!""... So eager to try Milwaukee's best I went... the food was pitiful at best. The atmosphere was a like a frat house and the Margaritas were watered down. Now to be fair, maybe I'm just... view more

Best time - Great food - Good looking crowd

Best time -- busy place but worth the wait. best margaritas and excellent combo platters. new bar attracts great crowd. I had only been there for lunch before; dinner was awesome and a lot of fun to sit, drink and watch the different scenes. then plenty of food to take home for breakfast.

Horrible food and presentation

I have passed this place couple of times and it seems to be crowded all the time. so i ASSUMED the food must be good. What a mistake !!!\r I ordered some roast pork dish. When I got the dish I didn?t even feel like eating anything else for the whole day. The supposedly Roast pork looked white in color then they have added a gravy which was yellowing in color. Yeiks !! it was horrible. White colored meat in yellow so... view more

Someone hijacked the adjective ""Mexican"" and applied it to this food.

This is not mexican food. If you want mexican food, try ""Azteca"" or ""Botanas,"" but don't expect to get anything mexican from La Perla. This joint mostly caters to the suburban crowds too fearful of the South Side to venture very far from what the television tells them is mexican cuisine. In fact, I'd say La Perla fails even by a Chi-Chi's standard. The tables and seating are crowded, there is no shelter from ... view more
