Sometime about 1870, the Peacock family looked for the perfect spot to plant their roots. They discovered it in what came to be the village of Coconut Grove. Now, nearly 130 years later, we're planting a verdant tropical garden on this very ground. The Peacock Garden Cafe is our vision of the quintessential Coconut Grove restaurant. We're perfect for a delicious meal, a quick snack or maybe just an aperitif or glass of Proseco in our beautiful garden. And why not? Our chefs craft only the best and freshest ingredients, adjacent parking is abundant and inexpensive, and our environment is lush and lovely.

The Peacock family thought so.
And you will too.

I chose this restaurant because I wanted a romantic setting. The outside was very beautiful. I got romantic vibe but when I chose this restaurant I didn’t know that the coconut grove art concert was going on so threw off the entire romantic vibe. We got no bread and our sever was hardly ever around. We order the picnic platter and I ordered a salad, they brought us a cheese platter after we told them the error they corrected the issue. The mojitos were amazing. My salad was dry with just oil I asked for the raspberry vinaigrette. I order a margarita, when it arrived was very bitter. I had asked for salt on the rim, I didn’t get that so needles to say I was disappointed. We ordered skirts steaks well done, my husbands was well done as for mine it came medium rare. I chose not to send it back but when I got nothing but blood I asked if they could cook it more and they brought me another well done with more cold mashed potatoes. I was not please we paid and left with no dessert.

We were visiting Miami from Key West for a medical trip. Stayed in Coconut Grove at the Mayfair. Walked to the Peacock. What a fun bar. Sat on the futon like couches. Great happy hour prices. I just started a diet so I was very pleased when the server said they could prepare grilled salmon and vegetables for me. Excellent meal!

Came in around 2:30pm for lunch and it was fairly empty and customer service was poor.

We chose and outside table, and the large group nearby to the north was increasingly noisy to the point where we couldn't hear each other. We should have chosen a different table or transferred to an inside table. I have eaten there 8 times and each time I have been seated next to a big group of noisy people. In the future, I'll check for noisy groups before I choose my seating. I like a reasonable atmosphere, not shouting groups. When I have a business meeting or VIP guests, I will likely choose another restaurant where it is quieter.

Our first meals (one lunch and one dinner) were absolutely superb. They tasted beautifully and were superbly presented. They could not have been better and we enthusiastically gave it a 5 star review. This time it was a total opposite, the food was mediocre, (the steak awful). It felt like a different chef had prepared our food. So sorry. because we really like the wonderful ambience of the place

It was not like last time. They change the lobster raviolli sauce and pasta. The outside area is a free smoke area, this is not good at all

I loved the Peacock Garden Cafe. What a beautiful setting. We had such professional service too. But the stars were the appetizer, salad and dinner. Everything was top notch. I will be back.

THe waiter was not attentive and the food took about 45 minutes to arrive. When it came some was very good, but most dishes were mediocre. The beautiful surroundings did not quite outweigh the 'meh' food.

We thought the chef had a night off. Food was not up to their usual standards. Creamed spinach watery. Mashed potatoes cold. Tuna tartare was fishy. Steak was tough. Just a bad night compared to our past experiences. Hoping for better.

Consistently good food & service! Ordered the soup of the day & it was very good. My favorite dish there are the scallops. Ordered it again & they were delicious. Good size portion. OMG, their chocolate brownie with ice cream is
magnificent 😋😋😋. I would definitely order that again

The restaurant setting is also spectacular! Good for groups

Make time for a visit. The business lunch was perfect. They did run out of bread pudding but offered key lime or brownie instead. Opted for key lime and my husband, who doesn't like key lime, finished the whole thing off. Burrata was fantastic as well. I didn't see any peacocks there but did on the drive there.

We haven’t been to Peacock cafe in a few years and were pleased it is the same as we have experienced in the past. Good food, good service and one of the nicest out door dining atmospheres in all of Miami. It should be on everyone’s must do list during the winter months!

Peacock Cafe is a great, iconic, Coconut Grove restaurant for any occasion. Dress up or down, dine indoors or out, eat good food & wine, and park in the convenient garage next door. Been going there for years and highly recommend it.

We had a stand-by reservation for lunch that turned out to be unnecessary and we were seated immediately. The servers and assistants are attentive but do not hover. Located in a densely treed area at the eastern edge of the center of Coconut Grove, the ambience is difficult to beat while dining outside. Oh yes, the food, scallops for my friend and salmon for me, was outstanding. They are not just seafood so check out their menu on line. A place to definitely put on your list if you are in the are.

My husband and I went here for a date night. The lighting was perfect and dim. The food was amazing the filet was cooked very well. Side order brussel sproats with bacon delicious. Desert the brownie and vanilla ice cream was so amazing the margaritas were very good as well. The staff was very nice and professional always made sure we had everything we wanted and needed. The music was very soft and pleasant to hear for relaxing. Highly recommand for married people and couples for a nice romantic relaxing dinner. We would difinately be coming back to this place for our special date nights and anniversary

What a treasure!!! The outdoor seating was lovely this evening with string lights and a fan. Our party was quickly accommodated and every request met. The food was simple but absolutely stunning. From a green salad to the seafood platter, everyone enjoyed their entree to the last bite. The steak was also popular at our table. We left nothing but clean plates all around, including the cheese plate and desert course (definitely go for the key lime pie). Would surely return again!

My friend and I had the Miami Spice menu, which was wonderful. Especially the guava cheese bread pudding dessert reminded me of the Bahamian Guava duff.
The decoration is also very charming and the service was great.

Perfect in the fact that this place is thee cutest place ever. Our drinks were superb, the Beretta is always the best ever. My brothers scallops were delish. My sea bass was a bit over cooked, and the crab cakes were not peacock garden worthy. All in all. Nice dinner out
