Perch + Plow Makes a Splash

Downtown Santa Rosa Dining Scene Continues to Grow

Perch + Plow offers small plates and craft cocktails that look like works of art. The former Christy’s on the Square, an upstairs space overlooking the reunified Courthouse Square in downtown Santa Rosa, has always had the potential for greatness and aspires to rise to the challenge. The interior space has been transformed into a sleek, modern design with a large Bud Snow octopus mural as an eye-catching centerpiece. It’s easily the most beautifully-designed restaurant interior in the downtown area. Large windows open onto the square and skylights fill the restaurant with a soft glow. Perch + Plow has a contemporary yet comfortable feel and the handful of bar tables and stools with front row views of the action and cool breezes below are among the most coveted.


The food includes ceviche, seasonal salads, fish stew, and large plates like steak frites and seared halibut. While the wine list has a nice selection of local vino, a cocktail is a must - whether you order a Macadamia Mai Tai or a Carbonated Moscow Mule, the drinks are bound to be a liquid feast for the senses.


As downtown Santa Rosa continues its transformation from quiet county hub to a must-see Wine Country destination, restaurants like Perch + Plow will be on the must-try list.
