We love Peacock Cafe! The service is ALWAYS excellent and the food is very consistently good. What makes it special for brunch on Sundays (when we go) are the delicious smoothies and the ambiance. I particularly like that there is a standard egg dish that comes with a biscuit, breakfast meat and french fry like chopped potatoes for about 14$. My partner loves the smoked salmon omelette.

Service was extremely slow. We sat outside on the patio. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I ordered the beets with goat cheese appetizer, which was served cold along with the peacock salad, which was too heavy on the dressing. My husband ordered the fish, which was the best he’d ever had. The prices were high for portion size.

This was our 1st time here and we definitely enjoyed it. They offer bread while waiting for your appetizers, but I really like that they do not give a bowl of it. They give you one, which is freshly baked, and a little butter on the side. This way you don't fill up on bread. I ordered the salad with apples and goat cheese and my husband ordered the tomato bisque. Both we're delicious, and for my husband not being a tomato fan, that is saying alot. He also commented it was a good serving size knowing he has a steak coming. They seafood Jambalaya was really good as well and the fish was cooked perfectly. Only complaint, the shrimp was a little over cooked, but it didn't hinder the meal at all. We didn't finish because we wanted to share a dessert. The white and dark chocolate moouse was rich, best to share it if you don't cant handle too much richness. I liked my mojito more than the pomegranate margarita. We would definitely come back, there are a few other items we would like to try.

We had a great time at Peacock Cafe. I was happy to see that others had children with them when we entered, as we wanted a family dinner. The decor was great as there was mood lighting, nice artwork, and just a great looking restaurant. There was outside seating, but on a cool, rainy evening, everyone was inside. The waiter was nice and knowledgeable, and someone who appeared to be one of the Chefs came out to bring our appetizers and our meal. He was impressed a 10 year old ordered the curry lamb burger and came back after we ate to ask how everything was and tell the 10 year old that he was impressed with his palette. :) I would go back. The tropical margaritas were great, the calamari, nachos, and arugula salad was great, and our entrees - salmon, curry lamb burger, and jambalaya was delicious!

Great food but horrible service. A lack of communication b/w hostess, waiter, and my party.(Who was celebrating a birthday) Did not feel welcome at all. Everyone acted very apathetic towards us while other tables were being treated very kindly and intimately.

This is now my absolute favorite restaurant in the city. The food is beyond compare, this service is stupendous, and the restaurant is absolutely charming. First of all, we can dress casually and be completely comfortable. Parking is as easy as it gets which is a big plus. We had a wonderful time and everything we ordered was beyond Delicious. Can’t wait to go back.

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 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!
