The food was delicious! Not much on a plate but still a filling meal. The staff are lovely and very friendly! Went for my brother’s birthday and the whole restaurant ended up singing to him!

First dinner here at this cute little place. Our dinners were delicious. I ordered the special of the day which was scallops over risotto, and my son ordered a basil and parmesan risotto. The service was fabulous as well. Will definitely return on future visits to our nations capitol.

Everything was good however I was disappointed I made a personal reservation note that it was my moms birthday, and nothing was acknowledged by anyone on staff. I had slight expectations that something would said or done, and nothing.

We were in DC to celebrate our daughter’s birthday so felt this would be a special place to enjoy brunch. My husband had the Corned Beef Hash which he enjoyed, my daughter had the Chesapeake Eggs Benedict which had a nice amount of crabmeat and Hollandaise sauce but was not served on the traditional English muffins which she would have preferred. This was served with a nice portion of fries. I decided on an item from the lunch menu-the Paul Newman sandwich which was also very good. The prices are on the high side but naturally what you learn to expect in DC!

Peacock Cafe is always a reliable and pleasant option. It is rarely crazily busy but nonetheless has a nice energy with very good food and attentive, friendly service. A go-to option for a nice meal in Georgetown.

Peacock Cafe was recommended highly and I was in DC yesterday and had the opportunity to dine there. Hostess was friendly and gave us a choice of a couple of tables which was nice. The presentation of food was wonderful and the combination of ingredients inspiring. The encrusted grouper dish and the specialty Qaymay (sp?) were delightful. Service was very slow, which was actually find for us since it gave us an opportunity to catch up with our son who goes to Georgetown nearby. However, it is worth pointing out the slow service for others who might be on a schedule when dining here. We also only saw our server at the beginning and end of meal. His colleagues served the meals and helped us when we needed a spoon or beverage refills. All in all, the food was worth the wait and we would go back to Peacock Cafe!

It was decent! I was slightly underwhelmed because the Benedict’s were both on regular bread instead of an English muffin. We also assumed they would come with home fries/roasted potatoes, but they came with super thin fries. If I knew that I would’ve ordered home fries or fruit as a side, but I probably misread the menu/should’ve asked. I don’t know that I’ll be back soon, as there are superior brunch options in DC, but it was good enough. Maybe we’ll fair better with an omelette next time. The strawberry lemonade was very fresh and delicious!

Decided to stop by for a quick bite on my break. Turns out this place serves brunch everyday of the week so I was sold. Decided to try something different and had the Doctor's Ultimate Eggs with a Rose' Spritzer. I like the way they presented everything. My server Christian R offered me a fruit salad with my meal as if it came with my meal, however it did not. Next time try adding "for an additional $6 would you like to add a fruit salad with your meal" to your pitch. Other than that, everything went well.

Peacock Cafe has an impressive lunch menu, which includes several brunch options all week. I opted for a lunch of seafood jambalaya, which was very tasty. My friend enjoyed her veggie burger. The server gave helpful comments on the menu options. I would recommend this place for lunch during the week.

Delicious food with pretty good service. They dressed the restaurant up beautifully for Valentine’s Day. Thought a little pricey for the amount of food, the rigatoni is the best pasta I’ve ever had. Their policies for cancellation and scheduling are sneaky and stressful however, which was a bit concerning for me. I don’t like their cancellation fee, it feels very unfair to charge people so much per person.

We were sat at an awful table in the front near the drafty entrance. I asked the hostess and the manager to be moved multiple times and they were not able to accommodate. Very disappointed in the ambience. Service was fine, but we had multiple waiters which was odd. Food was fantastic nonetheless.

Great meal! Lovely time spent there. A little loud but I don't think that's anything the restaurant could control, I think it's just the structure. We went for brunch which is also not the quietest time.
The french toast is amazing! Overall, our experience was great and the service was fantastic. Highly recommend!

I came for brunch on a Saturday. I was pleased with the mix of items the menu had to offer. It was a perfect combination of breakfast and lunch items. There was something for everyone. My only major issue was with the entrance. The dining room was absolutely packed, and the entrance does not allow for more than 3 people to wait comfortably for their table.

Again and again Peacock Café does an excellent job making every guest feel special and welcome. PEACOCK EGGS CHESAPEAKE are always my favourite. Chef Maziar Farivar was himself at the front of the house greeting, connecting with, and checking on the guests, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Food and atmosphere was superb. We had a group of 9 and before everyone was there we asked about limits for dividing the bills on different credit cards. They said there was no limit and they would be happy to accommodate any arrangement. At the end of the meal the server handed each person an individual bill. I was amazed. Would definitely go back!
