Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "My friend and I had trouble deciding what we wanted to order from the extensive menu. It all looked so good! So we decided to order a bunch of small plates. Everything was so delicious!"

  • "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 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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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. "

  • "Great place to eat in Georgetown. It is off the main strip, which makes outdoor dinning more enjoyable. The food was great and the service was outstanding. Outdoor dining is street side, and can be a bit noisy. Inside is very nice and quiet. Kid friendly service and menu. We had a great experience and would recommend this place to anyone."

  • "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. "

  • "I dine at Peacock Cafe often and it never disappoints. My last experience there was my favorite. My friend and I ordered their special fish of the day and it was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and the friendliness of the wonderful staff. If you are traveling to Georgetown, this restaurant is a must!!! "

  • "Everything went fine. I was immediately seated, with courtesy. The service, albeit slow, was overall good and friendly. The food as well was good and a nice red Montepulciano d'Abbruzzo accompanied it by the hand. Therefore, a good experience although far from a thrilling one. I believe I will go back with the hope of finding somewhere that spark that would make it a memorable experience."

  • "Acquiring reservations was not difficult. Nice crowd present which is always a good sign. Menu was different on Open Table vs what we were handed. That made it somewhat frustrating because I base my reservations on what I can eat (gluten intolerance). I ordered a salmon meal from the menu and our waiter actually suggested one that was not on the menu but was very good. It came with sweet potato discs and I believe Asparagus and some balsamic soaked baby onions. All very good flavor. My husband had a pasta dish with grilled chicken that he said was good and kids had burgers and shoestring fries. Overall good meals for everyone and waiter seemed to be knowledgable about gluten intolerance, which is nice!"

  • "Try one of their smoothies or juices if you go for brunch- very flavorful and fresh! My eggs Benedict was slightly overcooked and another friend'a bacon was a bit dry, but otherwise everyone really seemed to enjoy their meal."

  • "I ordered the rib eye which came out tender on the inside with a little toughness on the edges the way I like it. Tasted great! The standout on the dish was the cabernet reduction sauce. That added a sweet taste that I’d not tried with a tender cut of beef before. The “peacock” fries were a bit of a disappointment. Tiny shredded potato type fries, I was hoping for something more elegant, or hearty to accompany a steak. Overall very good 3.5 stars. My date tried the shrimp and lobster, spinach tagliatelle, it was very good. 4 stars. We finished with the carrot cake, suggested by our waiter, who was excellent for the duration of our meal. It came out with a sliced strawberry, a dash of fresh cream and a scoop of cinnamon ice cream. 5 stars!"
