Wonderful. Sunny and 72 degrees. Sat outside. Table ready as promised. Even street construction couldn’t damper the experience.
Generous portions. Lovely presentation. Great service.

Was a birthday celebration as noted on reservation. We were offered a terrible table wedged beside a busy door when plenof other tables were open. Not greeted once seated. Had to go find someone. Server never once came back to ask how meal was...we had to get up again to ask for a condiment. Complimentary dessert presented so late we had already got up a third time to get our check and hsd to leave.

We made reservations in advance. Got there early but they seated us outside (our reservation preference). On our table, there was a chair missing. No issues. The bus boy bought us water with ice when we had asked without. Ok. Happens.
No server in sight for about 10 mins. I go in and ask for one. Also, no menus until this point. Server comes immediately after my request, assumed we have menus, then we have to ask for them. He also very dry, borderline rude. Food arrives, its good, we like it. He checks in on us, barely any niceties there. We finish and leave. Tip him 20% but didnt deserve 10. For the price point, service was way below par.

Overall experience was good . The restaurant was clean and was following covid safety protocols. It was decorated nicely for Valentines Day which we loved however the restaurant itself was cold . One of the employees even had a scarf on .

We ate here at 10:30 for Sunday brunch. The menu had just the right amount of choices. They were very safety conscious, even giving us little bags to place our face masks into!
The food was very tasty.

We had reservations to dine outside (tis the Covid life). We had a great table next to a heater. The hostess and the restaurant manager were on point with their customer service. The food was great. We look forward to dining their again.

Peacock Café has the nicest owners and servers, a great menu of modern American options, and the best ambiance (yes, even while dealing with the pandemic). My group thoroughly enjoyed our late afternoon lunch on the patio! And Peacock's shoestring fries are the best!!
