While promoting her upcoming album in New York City, Katy Perry joined boyfriend John Mayer and friends at The Lion on Monday night.
After a busy day – the singer's single "Roar" hit the Internet – Perry caught up with friends at the bar before heading upstairs to a private room for dinner.
"Katy and John were adorable," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Katy introduced him to people as her boyfriend and John affectionately held her close with his arm around her."
Just as the 15 guests were finishing their entrees, Perry's pal Rihanna arrived.

The course of true love hasn't been smooth for Katy Perry and John Mayer, but now that they've reunited, the couple are making sweet music.
The lovebirds have recorded a duet they wrote together, "Who You Love," for Mayer's new album, Paradise Valley (due out Aug. 20). The song gives lyrical insight into the on-again couple's irresistible attraction to each other and hints that they split in March because Mayer wasn't ready to be in a relationship.
The mid-tempo track features Mayer, 35, singing the lines: "My girl, she ain't the one that I saw coming / sometimes I don't know which way to go / and I tried to run before but I'm not running anymore / 'cause I fought against it hard enough to know / that you love who you love who you love / you can't make yourself stop dreaming of who you're dreaming of / if it's who you love, then it's who you love."

After Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson showed up at a wedding rehearsal in May, rumors swirled about the nature of their relationship.
But the singer says she was just being a friend and even texted Pattinson's ex, Kristen Stewart, to make that clear.
"I sent her a text message saying: 'I know you've seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person,' " she explains in the September issue of ELLE UK. "'I'm just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of t––s.' "

Sure, celebs can sign a fan's guitar, but how many actually

It looks like John Mayer and Katy Perry are indeed finding perfect harmony together again.
Days after Perry shared a sweet picture of the couple snuggling on the Fourth of July – just another example of their recently rekindled romance – Mayer settled the score with an equally aww-worthy shout-out.
He dedicated a song to Perry, who reportedly looked on from the mixing board, on the opening night of his Born and Raised World Tour, reports Rolling Stone.

Are the fireworks back for Katy Perry and John Mayer?
Perry, 28, posted a cozy Instagram photo of herself and the singer, wearing matching stars and stripes gear as they shared an embrace Thursday at Philadelphia's Fourth of July Jam, which he headlined. Her patriotic, cheeky caption reads: "Whose broad stripes and bright stars?!"
The on-again-off-again couple, who split last March, was seen together at a Friars Club roast in New York City on June 24 honoring Don Rickles, where they shared kisses and were "very lovey-dovey" with each other, according to an onlooker. They had previously been spotted together at the city's Greenwich Hotel.

Katy Perry and John Mayer's on-again, off-again romance appears to be back on.
After recently telling Vogue magazine that she was "still madly in love" with Mayer, Perry was spotted out with the "Paper Doll" singer at New York's Greenwich Hotel on Saturday night and, later, at Monday's Friars Foundation Annual Applause Awards Gala honoring Don Rickles at the Waldorf-Astoria.
At the event, Mayer performed a tune made famous by Frank Sinatra, which captivated Perry.
"When John performed, Katy was enamored by his performance," a source tells PEOPLE. "He sang 'One for My Baby (and One More for the Road).' When they were sitting down, she had her arm around John at one point. They shared kisses."

Katy Perry says Russell Brand was "a magical man" when they met four years ago, but the spell wore off shortly after their Indian wedding in October 2010. And it bottomed out when the actor sent her a text 14 months later informing her he planned to file for divorce.
"He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him," Perry tells Vogue in a revealing cover interview for its July issue. "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."
Perry, 28, says that Brand, 38, seemed to have difficulty accepting her role as a successful musician and businesswoman – even if that's what he thought he wanted.
