We were 15 minutes late to our reservation, which I felt so bad about, but the restaurant was really nice about it and seated us relatively quickly on a busy brunch morning.

Also, best affordable brunch in DC.

Maybe the best place to eat great food at a reasonable price in DC, at least for an Italian palate who cannot stand excessive sauce, spice, cheese, and funky combinations of ethnic cuisines and appreciates high quality ingredients and sobriety. They also serve Sicilian cannoli, petite and hand made with sheep ricotta cheese. Cannot find them ANYWHERE in DC. Service impecable.

Excellent place for a brunch or any get together IMO. I have been coming here with different friends, with family, always a treat!

It can be quiet for a business lunch and always very energetic for brunch.

Brunch food decent & reasonably priced. Don’t expect any intimacy as the tables are closely packed, room loud and busy. Reservations are a must. Long lines of patrons overflowing from bar area waiting for tables.

Our group of five, (including a baby), were seated at a large round table in the front of the restaurant, by the window. Peacock Cafe kindly supplied a high chair. Everything was great and the service was friendly and efficient. We had a lovely lunch.

Dined on Saturday night and had a TERRIBLE experience. I ordered the Cajun chicken salad. A chicken Caesar salad was brought out. I told the server that was not what I ordered and send it back. He was very irritated. I then received what was supposed to be the Cajun chicken salad but it seemed that they just took the cold chicken from the Caesar and put it on the new salad. I told the waiter that the chicken was not the Cajun chicken and he looked at the salad and said, "Yes, that IS the Cajun chicken salad". If you gave me a chance, I was going to explain that I realized the "salad" was correct it was the chicken that was not correct but walked away before even letting me get my response. He was quite rude and dismissive. The chicken, needless to say, was so tough, cold and inedible. The Salad was $20 so I expected a little more than what I got. We will not be back!

We’ve been going here forever and never had a hostess stand act so incompetently and rudely. They fumbled around with our reservation for a while and couldn’t sit us outside (fine). My mom goes to the restroom as they’re trying to seat us. We finally sit inside since that’s all they had and when she walked back to the hosts, asking where we were, they blew her off at first and acted like they had no idea who she was. It had barely been 10 minutes and no they were not swamped at this point. Honestly, do better.

Peacock cafe is my “go to” place whenever I go to Georgetown. The staff is always welcoming and attentive. The food consistently tasty with perfect proportions. The atmosphere relaxing and comfortable with lots of natural lighting due to big windows. Always a favorite for this local diner.

Quality of food was terrible. We were a party of 10 and no one left there satisfied with the meal. A shame because restaurant has a nice ambiance. Dined there a few years back and the food was good. Will not return

We ate a delicious meal on the sidewalk at Peacock Cafe this past Saturday. I went with the fixed menu and was beside myself with the seafood gumbo. I would highly recommend Peacock for a romantic evening as the service was amazing, the food was delicious and the deserts were perfect. Thanks for such a great meal.

My wife and I dined there with another couple 2 nights ago. Memo, our waiter, and the rest of the wait staff, was very attentive and personable. Not our first time; certainly not our last. Great service, great value!!

The food was outstanding. Seriously delicious.
Steak salad is worth going back for.
Service was very attentive without being overbearing or overpresent. We asked to sit at an outside table: when it began to rain they moved us like a pit crew!
Ramon, the manager(?) was genuinely concerned that everything was to our liking.
Refreshingly warm and personal.
Loved it. Going back soon!

Yes, it was a nice place to go for a group lunch. Service was friendly and the setting was casually elegant.
There was a diverse menu with lots of choice. The quality was good... not outstanding... but decent.
