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.

    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.

    What a beautiful place and thanks open table for suggesting that in my area. We had a great night! The food was spectacular, I had the Skirt steak on the pear and blue cheese salad, my husband had the tuna with the peppercorn crust and potato and crab salad. We had a couple of the pomegranate martinis and loved everything. Really great service, the drinks were a little slow in arriving but other than that everything was wonderful.

    Peacock Garden Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants. So. we were excited to introduce another couple to the restaurant. To our dismay, that evening the Cafe had a very loud jazz band playing outside. Sitting outside is what we love the most so we took a table as far as we could from the band. Unfortunately, the piercing Saxaphone persisted throughout our meal really ruining the atmosphere and making it impossible to carry on a conversation. We asked the waiter and the manager if they could tone it down. They apparently requested that but it really did not help. I'm sure we were not the only ones complaining. It turned what we thought we be a lovely evening into a very unpleasant experience. Food and service were good, though.

    We were seated right away, the food came out fast, and it was incredibly delicious. Best part of the night was our waiter, who was incredibly good humored and patient with us, even though it was the end of the night and we had already had a little too much to drink :) Only thing I would change was the elevator music they were playing inside. Also the vintage wall décor sign on the outside had an unnecessary apostrophe, which really bothered me.

    They did not honor the priority seating reservation. The attendant stated that we would be seated in 5 minutes that they were clearing an inside table. 25 minutes later we were seated outside & they gave the table to people that had arrived after us The food was cold & lacking flavor. I will say that the place is beautiful & it is a shame that the service does not meet up to the ambiance. I do not recommend the restaurant & I will not return

    The Peacock Garden Cafe is a beautiful place for lunch. It is operated by the same group that runs the very successful Jaguar restaurant down the street. For some reason, my wife doesn't like PGC, so I don't get there as often as I'd like, but a friend invited me for a business lunch recently. I had a delicious soup and salad. The service was excellent. The food was great. The setting is magnificent. The only complaint that I have is that the chairs, though pretty, are not as comfortable as I wish they were.

    We were six, four who ordered from the Miami Spice menu. Waiter distracted or oblivious. Muddled wine served to the wrong guest and coffee ordered at the beginning of the meal arrived with dessert; appetizer missing in action; salad finally arrived, but with the ingredients (beets, cheese, dressing) that the guest specifically asked be excluded. She sent it back because the entrees were being served, but it still showed up on the bill. My husband paid the bill and didn't realize that one of the Miami Spice deals was actually charged out separately; as appetizer, entree, and dessert! Buyer Beware on that one! Sangria was included in the $33 Miami Spice price; we didn't want it, but the waiter insisted! On the upside, the food was delicious.

    This was an amazing find. We have lived in Miami for over 10 years and didn't know about this spot in Coconut Grove. Everything about this restaurant was AMAZING. The staff, food, service were all incedible. When we left we were even greeted by the manager to ask how the experience was. A real gem and the food was INCREDIBLE. Thank you Peacock for an incedible evening.

    Everything was lovely butthe server was distracted and we had to ask for ice (for our water,) for more water, for black napkins for members of our party who were wearing black and once we asked for the black napkins we had toremind the server to actually bring them. As a vegetarian, I found the menu to be extremely vegeterian unfriendly and uncreative. Considering that more and more people are turning vegetarians, it would be nice to have at least 3 different entree choices (substituting portabello mushrooms for meat, chicken or seafood.) The vegetarian sandwich on the lunch menu should be offered at dinner as well (as well as other sandwiches and salads.)

    They had an additional deal for only five dollars in addition to thirty three basic cost, you could upgrade the skirt steak to strip steak plus delicious mashed potatoes. Food was great. Only problem was a baby shower nearby that had some very noisy girls but I think some were heading impaired so they probably did not realize how loud they were. It was really nice when they used sign language. I plan to go back when it is cooler and eat outdoors, probably Sunday brunch. Public parking is right next door at one fifty an hour.

    Cute place for brunch and I am sure really cute if not pouring out. They don't take actual reservations so we had our name on a waiting list. Sat in a cute little bar and ordered 2 mimosas and 2 coffees - almost $50 for that! We ended up being seated on the patio and our seat pads were still damp. Waitress didn't ask if we wanted more drinks when ours ran out. We placed our orders and waited for the food. Before it came a diner next table lit a cigarette (we were not told that smoking was allowed on the patio). So we asked to move to a table inside (there was one in full view), she had to "ask her manager". The food was good but not outstanding. 2 orders were wrong. The new waiter was better than the first. But not sure I would return.

    I was a bit annoyed when I first arrived because even though I'd used Open Table to get priority seating, I still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. However, the restaurant redeemed itself when I got my food, a Greek salad with grilled chicken. They used real Greek olives and added a couple of falafels. I ate the whole thing even though it was a huge plate. I will definitely go again, but never at one o'clock on a Sunday.
