The food was awesome, the service was amazing. I even got a chance to shake the manager and the top chef's hand. They literally walked up to the table themselves and introduced themselves, and make sure that I was satisfied and pleased. Thank you! #FlavorsForPhlavors

Good option for brunch in Georgetown and special occasions. We went for a birthday and they made a lovely birthday treat for the guest of honor. Try the homemade juices and dessert. The service is very good. My only complaint is the bathrooms could be cleaner, but it was a busy weekend when we went so this may not always be an issue.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with friends at Peacock Cafe. Our waitress was charming - polite, efficient and patient with our questions. Service was fast, and all our dishes were delicious. Our table was cozy and in a quiet spot as requested - we could not have been happier.

My Grand daughter and I had a special day together and I found this restaurant on Open Table with great reviews. My expectations were met and then some. The food was wonderful and my picky little eater left nothing on her plate. Since then - all she has done is talk to her parents about it and how the whole family should go there for dinner. The wait staff and host were attentive and most accommodating. It definitely was a find and we will absolutely go back!!!

We love this place! Finally found a great place for Sunday brunch for our family with gluten free needs who take great care with our food AND they are so accommodating with great options (use delicious locally sourced Rise Bakery for their buns!). Both gluten and non-gluten eating members are happy here! Also had a wonderful dinner before taking Uber to the Kennedy Center one night before a show and it was delicious, quick and easy to get to the show on time!

The food was amazing. I had the beets and goat cheese, calamari, and the crab pesto risotto. My daughter had the ravioli. Everything was exceptional. Even the bread was on point. I ordered a French 77, which some bartenders don’t know what that is. They had no problem getting it together. I would definitely go back.

Peacock Café is a classic, love their brunch. They need to fix the heating situation, as their door has a problem keeping the cold out. The room was very cold and that made the experience a little uncomfortable. We had to wait for about 10 minutes although we had a reservation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year's Day brunch at the Peacock Cafe. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Great smoothies too! Coffee could have been a bit stronger for the morning after and the noise level was very loud, but we would return for another Sunday brunch when our heads are a bit clearer!

The heat was broken in the entire restaurant and we were not warned (even though we had an advanced reservation). That day the high temperature was in the 20s so this was unbearable. I'm sure this must be a health violation. It appeared to be a long-term problem as there were sheets covering all the windows. The food was mediocre and the service underwhelming. I was formerly a fan of the Peacock cafe but I'm not sure I'll return after this kind of dishonesty and poor service.

The service was exemplary. I was eating with a friend who is hard of hearing and they put us in a little alcove where they could turn the music way down which made it so he could hear conversation.

At the end of the meal, one of the young men ran to Wisconsin St. to call us a cab because my phone was dead and it was raining.

Also the food was delicious- the crab cakes were excellent- I would return for those alone.

This is one of our neighborhood favorites. The food suits everyone, as it is healthy and fresh, but will also please those in the family who want a burger and fries. The staff are always welcoming, and its great for brunch and to sit outside and people watch on a nice day. There is also a great selection of cocktails and wine.

A lovely choice for a special dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center! Festively decorated - really elegant! Food was great! Vegetarian pasta dish had lots of veggies and flavor, and the pistachio coated cod with spinach had a delicious sauce with figs. Service was impeccable. Thoroughly pleased with the choice and would certainly return.

We chose Peacock for our anniversary celebration after a show at the Kennedy Center. We had a wonderful experience. Everyone was attentive and helpful, we were able to relax and enjoy a leisurely dinner. The food was excellent! The three course pre-fixe is a great option and very well priced. We will definitely keep Peacock top of the list for dining in Georgetown.

Dined here for a birthday lunch and could not have been more pleased. They have a lovely outdoor patio and the inside is very nice as well. Menu is well rounded with traditional entrees and a great sandwich and salad selection. We both ordered the 3 course lunch for approx. $27. God the Med salad which was very fresh, the Gene Kelly sandwich and the sorbet and berries. The sandwich was excellent and the sorbet tasted like a vanilla bean which was a nice surprise as I was expecting the usual lemon. Also got the ravioli which was served on a bed of fresh spinach and was excellent as well. Of note, the entrees are full size with the special. Good wine (somewhat limited selection but excellent choices), great bourbon and scotch. Definitely will be returning soon.
