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.

    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

    We met our kids and their significant others for brunch and it was just superb! The lush outdoor seating was just beautiful and the food/drinks were fabulous. I was hesitant to order the eggs benedict because it isnt' made with holandaise sause but with a pepper sauce, but it too was just delicious!

  • No Reservations, "Priority Seating"
    RoEs
    Dined on 1/26/2014
    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.

    We had a lovely breakfast here. Nothing terribly fancy but food was well-prepared and presented. Fruit was fresh, eggs were good, potatoes were average. Love that the toast is served dry with unsalted butter on the side and the multi-grain bread was tasty. Our server seemed very busy but was still attentive to us. Refilled coffee and water as needed and checked in several times. A tiny bit pricey for what it was but worth it for the pretty garden space. I would go back for sure!

Both were prepared just right and the flavors were great. There was a jazz trio playing that made for a very pleasant and enjoyable evening,

    The ambiance at Peacock Garden Cafe really can't be beat - outdoor seating in a garden shaded by trees, very cute boutique-y interior. The food was so good, we went back twice in the same day. For brunch, we loved the eggs benedict and smoked salmon, which came with a light fresh pepper puree instead of hollandaise. Dinner was great, we had the fresh catch corvina, salade nicoise, and risotto. The only negative was the service - the servers were pleasant but the wait was forever for things like water and order-taking, and our plates were cleared a little hastily. There's a large, cute room in the back of the interior which would be great for a party. The parking garage right next door is $1.50/hr, cash only.

    We had a mediocre breakfast on Sunday. Restaurant opened up at 8am, but total set up wasn't done until 9am. It took a long time to get our simple breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast. My 2 over easy eggs came out with 1 egg broken. My husband's omelet on the other hand was nicely done with a large amount of fresh vegetables. No real greeting when we entered, but the waitress we had was nice enough. Energy overall was dull.

    The garden setting ambiance and reasonably priced food makes you want to come back here, but each time we come there is an issue with the service that downgrades the experience. From no one to greet you upon arrival, to some staff members totally lacking in English communication skills and not willing to find someone who does, to wait staff who seem to go AWOL--- these are issues that make us only go occasionally and not on a weekend. On the other hand, the menu has something for everyone and whatever we ordered has always been fine.
