Ate outside on a lovely summer evening. Service was truly excellent, pleasant and patient. Food was reasonably priced and tasty. It may not be the first choice for someone seeking a high end gourmet experience, but it's a great place for locals. Park a few streets away and walk over.

Delicious food, great attentive waiter, and such good location in Georgetown! Definitely will go back maybe even try brunch next time. Also many options for gluten free!

We had a delicious dinner Monday evening.
The service was spotty. At times we had to wave down a waiter to order dinner and then to order dessert. The staff was working hard but out of view.

First time since COVID to return to the Peacock. We opted for outdoor dining which was pleasant even with a large group of bike-riders parading by. Service had a few bumps as we had to ask for napkins and silverware after appetizers were served. Otherwise, the food was tasty with excellent presentation. We definitely recommend the place. We like the fact that it's small with a family-run type atmosphere. And very convenient parking garage next door.

We love Peacock Cafe. The food is great, the service is always attentive and prompt, and the management team there is fabulous. They remember you, always greet with a smile and go the extra mile for you. The outside patio is on N Street, far enough away from Wisconsin that's quiet. We treat ourselves and visit them weekly!

My family went Peacock Cafe for dinner to celebrate my mother's birthday. The service was outstanding and the food and drinks were excellent. My son gave the fries 15 stars! Anyplace that has folks of all ages with full bellies and smiles on their faces is a winner in my book!

Always excellent! Everything here is superb, the fish is always excellent, too. The mussels are maybe the best I’ve ever has, tender, full of flavor, and never Britney. The Jambalaya is also the very best I’ve ever had.

First visit. Selected based on menu. Very nice atmosphere and good service. Greeted with paper bags for our masks & hand sanitizer. Nice touch. We started with a charcuterie plate (great bread & cheeses, meats were standard), pistachio soup and arugula salad. The soup was unique…surprisingly light and very tasty. The salad has a terrific dressing made of red peppers. The mains…pomegranate chicken with cherry rice and a lamb stew…were beautifully presented, tasted great and were filling. This place is operated by real pros. It was a great choice. May have been a bit loud for an old guy.

I've been going to Peacock since it was a sandwich and salad shop in a space closer to Wisconsin Ave. The gentlemen that own it have always created lovely spaces filled with delicious food and gracious hospitality. We loved our lunch and look forward to going back soon.

We had a great experience. The service was excellent. Actually, the owner came to our table to see if we needed anything. The tables outside were still placed with distance from each other. The food was delicious.
I recommend this restaurant to everybody.
