The cafe seems a bit overpriced for the food I got. The taste of the eggs benedict was objectively good, but it was served to me on toasted sourdough bread rather than on an English muffin, which was strange. The meal also came with french fries instead of breakfast potatoes, which was a bit peculiar. That said, the service was good and the restaurant has great public health measures in place, including offering hand sanitizer at our table and providing little paper pastry bags for our masks. The outdoor tables wre also spread apart at a safe distance.

It was me and my friend's first time to dine here. We sat outside and enjoyed our meal al fresco. I enjoyed the pasta, while my friend enjoyed her burger. It's a nice spot in Georgetown, without being in the midst of M Street's hustle and bustle, but still close enough!

Three friends wanted a nice lunch spot amid the CoVid restrictions and chose Peacock Cafe. It was perfect! Great food, and a most welcoming and attentive team of managers and staff. We will return soon and enthusiastically endorse it for a great meal in Georgetown!

The service was excellent. I had the seafood jambalaya, it was rich and delicious. Maybe the salmon was a bit overcooked. Very good rice.

Went for Valentine’s Day and it was such a cute atmosphere! They decorated with some balloons and gave each couple a beautiful flower. The food was amazing, we got the crab & pesto risotto and the filet mignon. Perfect portions and great flavors. Highly recommend for a date night or a girls night out!

Lalo:

We returned for our 7th visit while staying at the condo of Hotel Arya for the past month. We have always enjoyed meals at both Jaguar,Talavera and the Peacock Cafe. However, this past week when we went to our dinner reservation the young man ask us to seat a unmade table and I requested a different one and he said I will get you a better chair. So we waited and then I saw him taking drink orders with a group of student in side the bar , he came back out side to seat another couple. Still NO chair and I went over to him and I said .."do one job at a time". He said not to raise my voice with him! I said that this is not the way people are treated at any of your establishments. We then departed and said it will be along time before we return.

Sorry about this but there is no good reason for this treatment.

The service was so bad we ended up leaving. We had been there 20 minutes and no one had taken a drink order. We also had asked for our waiter twice. We ended up leaving after we realized the two tables around us had been there longer than we had and had also not been helped.

Great lunch spot for a white tablecloth experience without being too stuffy. Food is always solid. Humphrey Bogart sandwich with prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato, basil is my go-to and never disappoints. On a cold dreary day start with the tomato bisque.
