A word from Peacock Garden Cafe
Sometime about 1870, the Peacock family looked for the perfect spot to plant their roots. They discovered it in what came to be the village of Coconut Grove. Now, nearly 130 years later, we're planting a verdant tropical garden on this very ground. The Peacock Garden Cafe is our vision of the quintessential Coconut Grove restaurant. We're perfect for a delicious meal, a quick snack or maybe just an aperitif or glass of Proseco in our beautiful garden. And why not? Our chefs craft only the best and freshest ingredients, adjacent parking is abundant and inexpensive, and our environment is lush and lovely.

The Peacock family thought so.
And you will too.

Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Peacock Garden many times since it opened. Always a wonderful experience and ambiance. On weekends, Jazz starts at 7:30 in the garden. The new menu is superb! We had the lobster mango salad and seafood casserole in coconut milk. Both were outstanding as was the friendly and attentive service."

  • "We take out of town friends to the Peacock Garden Cafe because we know we will get well prepared food at a decent price plus we love sitting outside in the garden ."

  • "We have eaten at the restaurant once before, and truly enjoyed our evening. We selected it partly for the food, partly for the garden ambience and partly for the live jazz. We were not disappointed on any point. The staff are great, friendly, helpful and leave you to get on with your dining and talking or listening the live music. We have recommended this restaurant to anyone we know who might be traveling to Miami."

  • "This was our first visit. We would advise that reservations are made via Open Table. A very popular place due to the beautiful trees and gardens in view inside and out. Food very good. Appetizers were very very good. Our entrees were done to perfection and very tasty. Unfortunately, I wrote a much longer review but Open Table does not afford lengthy reviews. The fish was excellent as was the skirt steak. On minuses- bus staff in great hurry to remove dishes between courses. Timing of courses was a bit hurried. Though interestingly you are hurried in and out. We did not feel rushed per se. Our waiter was excellent. We will return to this charming place with good food."

  • "My husband and I absolutely LOVED our experience at the Peacock Garden! Dining outside in the gardens with the natural beauty of the S. FL greenery, the dim lights strung above, and the amazing jazz band could not have been more characteristic of coconut grove...and could not have been more romantic on a Friday night! We are also foodies and though the menu had apparently just changed from what we saw online, we were still very pleased. Overall dining experience... bellissimo!"

  • "Quiet, good food just a little pricey for the dining experience. Wait staff was knowledgeable and provided needed service without being intrusive. Pork was a little over cooked but had excellent flavor, cocktails were weak but again served quickly. Dessert was excellent. We would recommend this restaurant to families and couples, it is large enough to handle large groups. A quick tour of the restaurant provides some excellent old photos of the grove during its early years."

  • "We decided to visit Peacock Cafe after a movie night with the kids. I have eaten here before for lunch and loved the food. Our waiter Patricio looked like he was obviously not happy about being at work and was thoroughly annoyed at the thought of being a waiter. We placed our order and our daughter's chicken arrived raw! When we let Patricio know, he never apologized or said anything about the problem instead appeared annoyed that we were sending our RAW chicken back! We will never be going back to Peacock Cafe, waste of time!"

  • "It is always very difficult to get seated here, this is definitely not the first time! We always make a reservation and when we show up, they tell us it doesn’t matter that you make a reservation, “its first come, first serve.” The hostess was very rude and not friendly. Not ONCE have we been and I can actually say that the hostess was a pleasure. Once we were actually seated, everything was great! The server was great, the food was great, the ambiance was great! I will continue to go back, but I know I will continue to be displeased with the hostess service."

  • "The restaurant is nice and cozy, the outdoor garden & mason jar lights make it feel comfortble & romantic. I ordered an Arnold Palmer which is a must, the lemonade tasted freshly squeezed & refreshing. The prices were a bit overpriced for the food but it was decent for the location of the restaurant. Seafood Appetizer: Calamari overcooked, the sauce was not flavorful. Ceviche=Delicious. Chicken, Potato & Veggies, exquisite, the veggies had just the right amount of seasoning & grilled to perfection. Chicken was tasty but undercooked, the center was raw which I was not happy about. The tuna was delicious, portion size was good and the steak was flavorful & cooked well. "

  • "Great food, great service, and great Florida "feel" to this nice little restaurant/garden. We had a lovely brunch and a dinner at the restaurant. The servers are helpful, the food fresh and delicious, and the environment very, very nice. This has become a "must-visit" restaurant during our frequent trips to Miami. Check it out -- you will be happy you did! (Don't forget to FourSquare check-in, too!)"

  • "Made reservations for 11:30am on May 8, 2014. Took my mother for a early Mother's Day lunch. The place was pretty empty so we chose to eat inside. We both had the Macaroni & Cheese Deluxe, which was hot & delicious. For dessert, mom had the Guava Cheesecake Bread Pudding & I had the Key Lime Pie. I have to say that the Key Lime pie of one of the best I've ever had & I've tried many others. The restaurant started filling up fast with diners & a very large & loud party in the room behind us. I was impressed with not only the food & ambience but they way we were treated, everyone was so friendly & helpful. Will definitely be back. "

  • "I've been to PGC many times but the service we received during my last visit makes it on the top of my list!! We were a table of 8 and we never had to wait tonorder, get drink refills or anything. In the middle of dinner it began to pour! We were quickly given a new table inside and a round of free drinks! Our server, Kevin, was amazing!!"

  • "We made a reservation for 8pm but when we got to the restaurant the Hostess said they could not Honor the reservation because they have too many people due to the Jazz band. They put us in waiting list with other parties that did not have reservation. After 40 min waiting we left. If they are not going to honor the reservations they should not accept them."

  • "Looking forward to first time here. Disappointed. At 9 pm on a Sat, ran out of an app on prix fixe. Offered a salad instead ( not equal value), and wouldn't budge. Pasta entree cold and sent back. Chops cooked unevenly. Waiter not descriptive or helpful with menu options. Bus Boy was the best of the evening, if that says anything. Ambience very nice, jazz duo live. Perfect for SoFla winters and brunch. Tough to ruin that. Long time patron of Jaguar, which has fallen off, too. Sigh."

  • "Great experience Dining at the Peacock Garden after the Coconut Grove Art Festival was just the thing. The restaurant with its garden and warm homey décor made it a warm and pleasant experience. I have dairy and gluten allergies and the staff was very helpful in accommodating me. The waiter recommended the special which I probably would never have ordered and I am glad I listened to him. I had the best Osso buco I Have eve had. My friend had the seafood casserole which he found outstanding and my husband's steak was very good. the cordina fish my other friend order was the least acceptable. Over all the evening out was a success and the waiters were outstanding"

  • "Read carefully the tiny print when making a reservatio.It says that they do not make a reservation for you, they just give you "priority seating" that will take only a 5-10 min wait. NOT my case. I though a had a table reserved for Sunday brunch, when I arrived the place was full. Hostess told me the bad news:I did not read the fine print, so I had to wait. We waited for over 30 min (not 5-10,min like the disclosure said), when I complained that the brunch time was about to end at 2:30 pm the manager, a french guy not very courteou took my order for brunch and told me to wait. I was surprise to see that set the table on the waiting area where we were waiting (a small coffee table!!) they brought up the food an hour later... it was cold."
