Diner Reviews
  • "While the food was ok, the service was terrible. Though not terribly crowded, our server left menus and then spent about 15 minutes chatting with her friends at the hostess station. We had to flag a busboy to get our waitress to take our order. She never came back to us after that."

  • "Great brunch option! Fresh pressed juices, wheatgrass shots, multigrain pancakes, great crabmeat eggs benedict. All eggs organic, maple syrup is real, service and atmosphere top-notch."

  • "My boyfriend and I came to Peacock Cafe before a comedy show and had a fabulous time. The menu was varied and both of our entrees were delicious. We shared the carrot cake for dessert, and although the cake itself was a little dry for my taste, the cinnamon ice cream, and strawberry and fresh whipped cream which accompanied it were fantastic and more than made up for it."

  • "Peacock Cafe has a winning formula, at least in Georgetown - great location, indoor and outdoor dining, comprehensive menu. Always reliable and easy, lunch or dinner."

  • "Four of us for lunch; entrees ranged from breakfast to salad; the ahi tuna with arugula was good, but the tuna was little dry. Steak and eggs was also very delicious."

  • "It was my friend and I's first time dining here (brunch). I had arrived first; my friend came shortly thereafter (5 minutes later). I asked to be seated first, and the hostess denied my request, as my friend hadn't arrived. Food was mediocre, and service could've definitely been better. I had ordered their most expensive brunch item: open face egg whites omelette w saffron stewed tomatoes & jumbo lump crabmeat, topped w smoked salmon and caviar; my friend, the corned beef hash. While the food wasn't bad, it wasn't anything amazing-- certainly not for that price tag. As a foodie, I've brunched at various restaurants in DC-- there is far better quality food and service elsewhere."

  • "Great brunch spot. A specialty juice from their juice bar will help in your weekend recovery. Can't beat their Chesapeake Eggs Benedict or their shoestring fries."

  • "Peacock has always been my favorite spot.. love it... enjoy the french fries! they are to die for! -tomato bisque, tuna salad, any of the sandwiches, you will enjoy every food"

  • "The main weakness at the Peacock Cafe is the food. The "lump meat crab cakes" were not lump meat but a shredded white substance that may or may not have been crab. Not a single lump could be found. The cakes were then over cooked to the point of a hard crust on one side and were tasteless. The fillet of fish special was warm not hot and contained unappetizing dark meat rather than the desired white flakey meat. The wine by the glass had to be sent back as it was clearly from a bottle that had opened days before. Noise level makes conversation difficult."

  • "The menu is amazing. There were so many great choices, it was difficult to decide what to eat. The service is very good! I admire restaurants that don't rush you and don't clear anyone's dishes until everyone in the party is finished eating their food. Excellent and healthy juices and smoothies are a must!"

  • "Disappointed with my entree. The lamb dish had one piece of lamb in it and it was the size of a gumball. If they were out of the dish they could have simply said so. At $24 for the entree alone it was disappointing."

  • "The food is great at Peacock Café but the juice bar option is a nice change from the regular iced tea or soda options for lunch beverages. Loved it!"

  • "We often go to The Peacock Cafe. Great service, neighborhood feel. Food is great, good menu. For this occasion it was a lunch meeting. Wanted to make a good impression, and we did."

  • "A diverse menu, even at brunch, will meet the needs of breakfast lovers or lunch lovers! One page of fruity, healthy smoothies tempts you right away with a great way to kick off a meal. If you prefer wine or a morning cocktail, they have that too! The Blueberry Island smoothie was perfect for me. We had the smoked salmon benedict, which was actually served on a bit of baguette or roll instead of the usual english muffin...loved it! Eggs were cooked perfectly and it was served with their beautiful shoestring fries that everyone craves. I had the salmon patty on a green salad with a light citrus dressing and red quinoa that hit the spot with me. It was served with two housemade crostinis. The salmon patty was delicious and a generous size."

    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Amazing outdoor space for brunch. Ordered salmon eggs Benedict and corned beef hash. Both excellent. Only comment would be one of the eggs on both dishes were overlooked so when you break into the yolk, the yolk was completely cooked instead of poached. "

  • "The food was very bland, lacking flavors. Initially, the server was attentive; however, as the evening went on, the quality of service degraded. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I go here often for lunch at work. The service and food is always good. It's nice to sit outside (even though it can be a little loud when trucks go by or stop to make deliveries on Prospect St). It can be loud inside, unless you get a table just to the left of the entrance in the alcove. Co-owner Shahab Farivar is often at the host stand or visiting tables and is as nice a restauranteur as you'll ever meet. Oh, and you can get breakfast all day!"
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "The food was delicious, however the service was only fair. Our appetizers arrived and before we put out forks down to finish ,our main courses appeared . No attention was paid to us . When we finally received the check no one bothered to pick it up , we left leaving it on the table."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Peacock Cafe is an enjoyable place, but the entrees fall a little flat for some reason. I recommend the appetizers and drinks. This was our second visit and we dined outside, which took advantage of the beautiful day and a bit of the hustle and bustle of Georgetown, but suffered a bit from the loud, itinerant ramblings of an (apparently) homeless guy ambling back and forth across the street. Service was friendly but a bit on the slow side."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Went with a group of 6 and had enjoyable evening. Food was very good and the service was also good. Restaurant noise level a bit high and not conducive to group conversations. That being said, I would still recommend to friends, but perhaps just 3/4 at a time."

  • "After hearing great things about this restaurant, I decided to take my mom out for brunch. We were extremely pleased with our experience at Peacock Cafe. Despite how busy the restaurant was, we were able to get outdoor seating, which was very comfortable. We appreciated our attentive service and the delicious food- we both had the eggs benedict Chesapeake and two passion fruit bellinis, which were on point. Thank you for providing such a lovely atmosphere and great service, it is really appreciated. "

  • "While the food was actually very delicious (we had a series of their small plates), the service really put a damper on our evening at Peacock. Throughout the meal we were ignored by three different servers despite the place being pretty empty. We were the only table that didnt receive bread with our meal and found it very difficult to get refills on drinks or place additional orders. Thankfully, we weren't in a rush. I wish it would have been a better experience, since the food was good, but I can't say I'd go back. "
