Great creative food. Good choices for person with gluten and dairy allergies.
We hadn’t been to Peacock in years and thought it would be a fun place to celebrate Fathers Day Brunch as it had always been a great spot to gather with friends for brunch or a date night. Sadly, our high expectations and memories of this spot are not what it once was.
The menus are old and sticky/dirty, the service was very poor- three of us had to start drinking my toddlers water because we couldn’t get service to refill our waters much less see a server to check on us. Would they have been more attentive if we’d had adult beverages? Maybe. The food was ok but definitely not the quality it used to be and the eggs tasted chemically. This once prized spot will be marked off our list. I’m not sure how this was put on some of the lists of best places for brunch/breakfast in DC.
Wonderful food, spectacular service, lovely atmosphere. I absolutely love this Georgetown treasure.
Absolutely love this restaurant! Went there with my wife for Sunday brunch. The staff is polite, attentive, and always goes out of the way to make you welcome. The food is delicious and they have some amazing unique dishes like smoked salmon one lets and some delicious smoothies. Ambiance is friendly, modern, Eurpean with indoor and outdoor seating on a quiet side street. We will be back to this gem of a restaurant!
We love this place. Fresh, interesting food. Wonderful service and warm atmosphere. Lots of light. Get away from the tourist traps of Georgetown and come to where locals dine. We come about once a month for lunch. Close to georgetown university.
My wife and I dined at Peacock Cafe on Monday night and had a fantastic meal. The Arugula salad was one of the best salads I've ever had; the cheese was worthy of a charcuterie plate at another fine restaurant. We ordered a Bordeaux bottle (30% off on Mondays and Tuesdays) and, at the end of our meal, had 1/3 of a bottle remaining. We left without it. Oops.
On Wednesday we went into the restaurant next door, Cafe Milano, and had a difficult time getting served so we went back to Peacock. I mentioned to the manager who sat us that we had inadvertently left our bottle of wine there Monday. He came back in 5 minutes with our bottle that they had saved for us, just in case we came back.
We love this place.
I stopped short of a stellar review for one reason, bar drinks. We were a party of 8 and everyone was very pleased with the quality and taste of his/her meal and the excellent service. Five out eight ordered cocktails and were all disappointed. They were weak, didn’t taste as they should, and a bit short. The manager was professional, attentive, thanked us for our polite feedback and brought us two replacements. Unfortunately they were of the same quality. We didn’t really want more to drink as all of us would have been happier with one, well executed cocktail, but he attempted to satisfy us and we appreciated the effort.
Again, the food and service were great. If they can correct their shortcomings at the bar future reviews will be outstanding.
Really nice brunch menu with convenient and inexpensive parking right next door. We had a yummy and relaxing brunch!
Great food and service
I love this restaurant for meeting friends for lunch. I wouldn't suggest eating outside right now as there is major construction across the street so it was loud. The food is good and the service very prompt and courteous.
The food was great and the service was also excellent.
Had an excellent brunch at Peacock Cafe. Food was delicious and the service was first rate. We weren't in a hurry so lingered over coffee and never felt we were being rushed even though they were very busy.
The sushi quality and combinations exceeded expectations.
the pistachio soup is outstanding! There were several entrees that looked good, it was hard to choose. everything was flavorful. We've eaten here before - dependable and satisfying. They have outdoor seating when the weather allows.
Food was good and the service great. The pancakes were awesome. They had good vegetarian and gluten free options for my family, but also enough meat options for those who ate meat. The freshly made juices were great. I wish we could have sat out back on the patio, but it was raining. I appreciated that it was nice environment that was also welcoming to kids (we had one toddler in our group). The only odd thing was the music was a little clubby for brunch.
It's always so good.
I had a friend visiting from Chicago, so she, a local friend and I went to the Peacock Café for dinner. I chose it because I enjoyed the Café when I attended a farewell luncheon there in June. The Café has an open, airy feel to it. As an appetizer, we shared lightly fried calamari served with a spicy tomato sauce and a ginger-lime aioli sauce. My local friend and I then had the Seafood Jambalaya: shrimp, salmon, cod, muscles & basmati rice. It was delicious! For her entrée, my Chicago friend had an Ahi Tuna Salad: almost tuna tartar in arugula & endive with sesame-lemon dressing. We finished by sharing two desserts: a generous slice of rich cheesecake and a brandy caramel tart á la mode. We all had a great time.
Very consistent good food in a nice ambiance
The food was amazing and service was impeccable! Would definitely eat there again!
A wonderful birthday brunch! The food was first class and the service was incredible.
The food was delicious, but the noise level was far too loud for a 10 am breakfast at a beautiful Georgetown restaurant. I continuously asked our server and the hostess if they could lower the music yet no concessions were made.
Wow, what a great experience. The food choices are exceptional and very interesting. We loved our salads and main courses. Everyone working there are very friendly and make you feel like you're part of the family. The ambiance is very lovely with beautiful decorations of various artist's work adorning the walls.

First time visit, Relieved we didn't have to parking. Two lots available. Food was excellent, server extremely gracious.
12 min after being seated still no server. Someone "important" sat beside us and recieved excellent service but we still had to flag someone down for a drink. The food was average. Bacon was overcooked and cold, biscuit was cold, and the potatoes were old. I was so looking forward to a wonderful brunch based on the reviews but we were very disappointed. Would not recommend.
Service was very friendly, and the location was convenient (one block off M Street in Georgetown). Ambiance was pleasant. We asked to sit outside, and they rearranged tables to accommodate our party of 7. Food was all good (several of us tried pistachio soup, and liked it). All of the 6 different dishes we ordered (only one dupe) were reportedly good. My salad was good and all the others looked good to me. We had two vegetarians in our group, and they were both pleased with their orders. My only "complaint" is that the prices were a bit high. Not astronomical, but over $20 for the entrees on average (I think three of them were $24.95).
I would definitely return there, especially for a special occasion.
Food and service were exceptional! We went for brunch and had the quiche and eggs benedict with smoked salmon - both were great! Staff were friendly and my only (minor) complaint was that I had to ask for drink refills on water and coffee repeatedly. Not a big deal because otherwise the service and atmosphere were lovely.
Great meal and great service. Had been here with my wife and son who attends Georgetown for brunch but this was our first time for dinner. Had a great table, service was outstanding and the food was excellent. My wife had the risotto, my son the N.Y. strip and I had the filet. All perfectly cooked and very flavorful. Had the cookies and ice cream for dessert. That plus starters and wine all for about $90. Pretty reasonable by Georgetown standards. Would highly recommend for casual but nice dinner.
This was the first time I had been to Peacock Cafe in a while and it was better than I remembered! The food was delicious, the wait staff was attentive, and it was a great lunch! I will definitely be back as I work in the area and keep forgetting about this restaurant.
Delicious lunch in a quiet setting with excellent service.
Amazing experience. The food was delicious!
Neighborhood Gem is an excellent description of this place. I think of this as the neighborhood restaurant, or at least it is for me. Over the last 20 years I have eaten most of the items on the menu and there are none that I found lacking. The diversity of the menu may be the best part. If you have one person who wants something light, then there is plenty of that type of food. If someone else is Famished and needs a steak that is there. If you do not want to spend a lot then there are choices. If you want something terrific and bit fancy then that is there too
Great service coupled with a creative menu and a good atmosphere.
It was my first night in the DC area, so I wanted to eat somewhere casual yet with atmosphere and good food. Peacock Cafe exceeded expectations, and the service was great. Thanks!
From the moment we walked in, we felt very comfortable. Greeting, service, food excellent!
As always, the most gracious welcome and service.
Love, love, love P.C. I live in the neighborhood and this is my favorite restaurant. Delicious and nutritious!
Great Easter brunch! Service was excellent and we were not rushed.
Absolutely fantastically atmosphere and outstanding food with cordial service.
Amazing food selections on the menu. Staff very friendly and service spectacular. Will return again n
Always a pleasure dining at peacock cafe with clients. Quiet enough for conversations and great service. The manager is so accommodating and friendly, always.
