One of our favorites in DC
We often go to the Peacock Cafe. It is very consistent and good. So we continue to come back. Our four guests also enjoyed it.

Fine Family Brunch
Peacock Cafe offers a fine dining experience and good value. The food combines inventive treats with reliable standards. The wait staff is polite and reliable. The chef and the maitre'd visited the table displaying a caring attitude that is gratifying. We had five for brunch and it was a memorable experience.

Food was just okay. Service was great and I like the ambience. This time I went for dinner, but I've been there for brunch too. Brunch was much better.

Next time, will get Paul Newman
Great place for brunch and Georgetown scene. Didn't love the table we got outside, as it was tucked away on Mother's Day, but I always enjoy Peacock. Saw the Paul Newman on the menu, which was my favorite sandwich when I went to school in Georgetown -- have to get that next time.

The food is adventurous and superb. The chef's pistachio soup is a culinary masterpiece. The service is attentive yet unobtrusive. W have yet to have a bad experience at this restaurant of any kind. They welcome you as a guest the first time and as a friend each time thereafter. Peacock Cafe truly defines what a fine dinning experience should be.

Great brunch place and terrific salads. Make a reservation on the weekends for sure!

My family and I came to Peacock
My family and I came to Peacock Cafe for my graduation lunch. It was a perfect spot, a crowd-pleasing menu (that was gluten-free friendly!) with great ambiance and atmosphere. Perfect location in the heart of Georgetown without feeling like you're in the heart of Georgetown.

Fabulous Dining Al Fresco
We've only had great experiences at Peacock, and the record continues! Shahab is the consummate host -- always warm and welcoming to regulars and new customers alike. Also, ask for Marija (pronounced "Maria") if you go. She's very knowledgeable about the menu offerings, and is more than willing to make recommendations if you need them. I enjoyed the lightly-battered fried calamari for an appetizer, followed by the shrimp and spinach tagliatelle with saffron lobster cream sauce and sweet peas. My friend had the Peacock salad and the "torsh-o shirin" cod. We shared the chocolate volcano for dessert. Everything was delicious. Oh...great cocktail menu and wines by the glass, too!

Great food, Gluten-free menu
The food was delicious and healthy! I had the cod with a sweet-sour sauce with figs and almonds and spinach on the side. My date had the veggie burger, which he said was good. I appreciated that the restaurant's menu highlights gluten-free items. It makes it a lot easier for dinners like myself with gluten allergies to figure out what to eat. We can eat more than salads at Peacock Cafe! In fact, even some of their desserts are gluten-free! We really enjoyed the ambiance at the restaurant. We were seated right by the window so could see outside without having to endure the heat and humidity. Service was also very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend.

We had an early dinner so the restaurant was very quiet. Our waiter was attentive. Our food was well prepared and delicious.

Professional, courteous, delicious
Parents were visiting from Jersey where we have the world's finest restaurants.
Peacock has every reason to be proud!

Do not recommend this place for Sunday brunch if you are interested in carrying on a conversation. The noise level was so high, it was difficult to hear the others at our table. The food was okay, but nothing out of this world.

Time to dine Al Fresco
This was our first time to this restaurant and won't be our last. The lamb burger was awesome. It is a friendly atmosphere and we even saw the owner walk around and greet each table outside. Extensive wine list and cocktail menu. The mojitos looked yummy. Lots of options on the weekend brunch menu. Can't beat the location (off Wisconsin and footsteps from M Street). A parking garage right next door, and a pay parking lot in front of the restaurant. Definitely a must try if you haven't been.

Great For Brunch
Very nice informal brunch place in Georgetown. Service was great and very friendly. Food though was exceptional and the gem of this restaurant. Simple stuff like eggs were very well made. Pancakes were perfect done not too sweet or syrupy. Wish we had more room in my stomach then. A surprise was the chicken sausage, which was the best I ever had.

Great for Family Celebrations
Peacock Cafe is my go to restaurant for family special occasions. I've celebrated mother's day brunches, graduation lunches, and birthdays there. The food is excellent for health conscious foodies, which we all are in our group. The wines are excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing so I never feel hurried through the meal. It feels much more like a European restaurant and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a delicious, relaxing dining experience. Let the festivities begin.

good for occassions
I just happened upon this restaurant when I was looking for somewhere for my birthday with friends. All the reviews talked about brunch, but dinner was great too. The staff was also very friendly and when I mentioned I was there for my birthday they wrote that around my lava cake dessert. It was a very sweet gesture and I would go back the next time in DC.
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
As my date and I were finishing lunch, the heavens opened up and neither of us had an umbrella. They quickly found me an umbrella so I could walk my date to her car without getting soaked.

Great little place
We really enjoyed our dinner here. A group of girlfriends out for the evening. We were seated outside on the sidewalk among several other diners. The sidewalk is shared by 3-4 other restaurants which makes for an energetic and festive atmosphere.
The food was good-very good. Some dishes were hits, and others were a little bit off.
Our waitress was spectacular, and very kind and friendly, but not overbearing. The service was good but bottled water caused some confusion and the bread took a long time to come. The water issue was resolved immediately and the bread was delicious when it arrived.
The prices, and especially the wine list, were very reasonable. They have great deals on Monday and Tuesday nights.
We would absolutely go back.

Love this restaurant. Only been there for brunch, but it never disappoints. The menu is courageous, the service is classy and comes with a smile, and you feel gorgeous just being there.

Nice Night out
We had a nice night out. The restaurant was very slow. The waiter accommodated our menu changes, but the food was jut blah.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for relaxed lunch
Excellent salads, busy but relaxed room and quiet enough for conversation. Waiters had nice combo of attentive but unhurried service. Didn't rush us along so we could linger on a rainy day.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Place to eat and to talk
The night we were at the Peacock Cafe it was very quiet. But the tables are close so if it were crowded, I think it would be more difficult to carry on a private conversation. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The service was good--attentive but not intrusive, quick but not rushed. The food was very good: deluxe burgher done as I requested and very tasty and salmon, which my table companion really enjoyed. We both started with the Peacock salad, which is always excellent.

Peacock shows all its feathers
We had a lovely lunch at the Peacock Cafe. When we first arrived (1:00) it was quite busy and VERY, VERY loud, but by 1:30 many patrons had left and the noise level dropped considerably. The food was excellent, the service fairly inattentive. We woudl return by at an "off" hour, so as to be able to have a ocnversation without shouting at each other.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Peacock Cafe is a great moderately priced restaurant with a variety of great food selections and excellent service. I had the Seafood Jambalaya and it was tasty. It could've used a bit more seasoning but some salt and pepper made it great and I ate every bit of it. Our waiter, who provided some of the best service I have received, recommended their Mango Martini which was so good! Definitely going back!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is one street
This restaurant is one street back from the very busy M Street. We sat outside and watched the world go by - not so many people that it was overwhelming, but lots to watch!
Good food. Interesting Belgium beers!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was spectacular. Very quiet & romantic.....two thumbs up!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out with the girls to celebrate an engagement. Our waitress was very good, and congratulatory. The food was yummy, and the atmosphere was great,
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for brunch!!
I love the neighborhood feel of this Georgetown restaurant. Service is always impeccable and the wait-staff are friendly and knowledgable. I've only been here for Brunch, but have heard lunch and dinner are also excellent. I enjoyed the lox platter; others in my party had the pancakes and the egg-white omelet...both indicated they would absolutely order them again!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite spot!
I've been dining at the "Peacock" for more than 20 years and have recommended it to friends, family, clients, and business associates many times. No one has ever been disappointed. If I lived in Georgetown, I'd be there for brunch every day! No place like it in the city.

We had a great time. The food
We had a great time. The food was exceptional as always. My friends had their kids and they seperated the kids meal for them, so that my friends didn't have to do it. It was really nice to have that done, so we could focus on catching up and not worry about getting two plates and things.

Dined on a Monday night when the restaurant was quiet for a birthday celebration. Table in the back had really nice view of patio, waiter provided excellent service, soup was wonderful, seafood entrees were very good. We will go back again.

Delightful Dining Experience
I found the Peacock Cafe while I was exploring the streets of Georgetown near my hotel. I went in to look at the dinner menu and the people I met made me feel so welcome - along with a great menu at reasonable prices - there was no question that we would be returning for dinner. It was a very good decision!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent gem in the heart
Excellent gem in the heart of the city! Only issue was parking which is expected in the Georgetown area, but the service and food made up for the minor parking inconvenience. Looking forward to my next visit!

Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant
In Georgetown. Good value. Service excellent.
We go often.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, service, ambience
The food is creative and interesting, without being heavy. It is consistently good. The fact that the two owners are a constant presence on the premises creates a nice atmosphere where the staff are all focused on serving the customers attentively and keeping things going smoothly.

Loved this charming restaurant!
We took my son there for his 21st birthday and had a wonderful meal. They even brought out a warm brownie a la mode for a surprise birthday dessert! It was to die for!! Love the juices and that they support sustainable farming. Just a nice overall experience for the three generation of diners (my mother included) in our little group.

Oh so yummy!
Food was outstanding, amazing brunch items, everyone got their eggs cooked exactly the way they like them!
Coffee was the best

Secret Gem in Georgetown
Love this restaurant. It never disappoints. The service and food are exceptional. The staff is very friendly!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love that brunch is on the menu every day, not just the weekend. But the "Ghodsi" was a sentimental dish. The name triggered memories of dear family member, and the quiche that was the heart of the meal was flavorful and comforting, matching Ghodsi's personality. Made my day.

Excellent Food & Service
Quality tasty food with attentive waitstaff. A selective menu with delicious gluten free options.

Had a great time! Service was friendly and attentive.

Excellent food and service
The fact that the owners are in the restaurant, taking care of the front desk and the kitchen, indicates how seriously they take the importance of good food and service. And it shows. The consistently high quality of the food and the attentive service make this restaurant a pleasure to return to time and again.

The food was very well prepared
The food was very well prepared and presented and the menu, which included appetizers, small plates, entrees was quite creative. The desserts were a wow! The ambience is modern and inviting. This was the first time we dined at the Peacock Café. It surely will not be the last!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I ordered the sautéed calamari, peacock salad, and the special which was sea bass in a tomatillo sauce. The service was excellent, wait staff were very polite and attentive, ambience was upbeat but not too loud. I brought my mother here the first night she was visiting from out of town and she loved it. Although the place is busy you don't have to wait forever to get a reservation. Great find when you want a good meal but forgot to make a reservation somewhere!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great date spot
Celebrated my five month anniversary here. Was seated right away, served efficiently, staff was kind. Restaurant wasn't busy on Wednesday evening so it was an incredibly intimate setting. Perfect for the occasion. I live this place!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food for reasonable price
This is my second time at Peacock Cafe and the food is excellent. I rnded up getting the Rib Eye and my boyfriend got the Filet Minon and they were both cooked perfectly. Last time we ate here we sat outside which was perfect, but it was freezing so we sat inside. It has a weird sort of club vibe with the red lighting, but overall pretty normal. The service was a bit slow and inconsistent, which was odd because we had such a great experience the first time, but nothing too bad that I wouldnt go back again. Amazing food, especially for the price of similar plates in DC
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lovely café in Georgetown, food was healthy and tasty and the children were very happy with their ravioli and vegetables (great to have vegetables on the children's menu) Would love to return.

We always enjoy a meal at Peacock Cafe.
Lunch is a consistent winner.
Our most recent trip was for dinner - and once again they had a very nicely varied menu. Our group had lamb chops, risotto, and a pasta dsih - each was excellent.
Nice wine list.
Great service and warm friendly atmosphere.

I was our first time at Peacock cafe. My husband and I were meeting another couple. As soon as we walked in I noticed the noise level. It seemed loud. However we had made a reservation, our table was ready on time (the restaurant was busy and full). Service was prompt and efficient. The menu has a nice selection of different type of food so everyone could get what they wanted. The food was delicious with nice presentation. It was a little difficult with the noise to have a conversation, we had to talk over the noise but we had a great time. Our guests loved the restaurant and we would definetly go back
