As always a cheerful and friendly welcome at the door and excellent variety on the menu!

Servers were calm and timely despite the “lunch rush” hour

My colleague, visiting from North Carolina, was delighted to be invited to visit Peacock Cafe as we did last year for an editorial meeting.

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.

It was our first time to dine at Peacock Café. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was attentive and the service was very good. There is a wide offering of selections on the menu. I had the Rainbow Trout special for lunch and my partner had the Crab Cake meal. We loved our food and enjoyed being able to sit outside on such a beautiful day. I look forward to coming back for a Sunday brunch.

I have been going to Peacock Café for years. It's a phenomenal spot for a good-tasting, classy and relatively affordable Georgetown dinner. The food is just great (try the savory tomato bisque) and the ambiance is great for all occasions - from intimate dates to loquacious friend reunions. Check it out!

We chose this place based on previous reviews-- I was not impressed. I tend to lean towards CornBeef, if it's an option as I LOVE to try it at different places. I do ask specifically how it's prepared prior to ordering as there is GREAT, "in house" corn beef and then there is "Canned"(Hormel)- I'm pretty sure this was the latter, NOT good at all-
The fruit salad was good and the staff were pleasant.
