    This restaurant has a good vibe from beginning to end. Food was great but worth noting we only had the shareables. It’s a little loud if you’re looking to have across the table conversations but the ambiance was great. I’d go again.

    Embarking on a culinary journey at New Orleans' The Peacock Room, I was greeted not just with a feast for the palate but an ensemble of sensory delights. As a chef celebrating my 34th birthday, the importance of honoring the kitchen's craftsmanship resonates deeply with me, and it was heartwarming to see a culinary service charge on my bill—a tribute to the unsung heroes behind each masterpiece served. From the moment I stepped in, the ambiance was set by enchanting live music, creating a backdrop that was both vibrant and intimately welcoming. The cocktail menu, a tapestry of flavors meticulously woven together, offered The Patron Saint, a drink that speaks to the soul with its divine blend—a sip of heaven, an ode to the spirit. The short ribs, a star of the night, were nothing short of a culinary ballet, each fiber tenderly surrendering to the touch, in a pas de deux with the velvety miso sweet potato—a pairing so seamless, it was as if they were destined to waltz together on the plate. Each bite was a testament to the chef's prowess, where the meat's richness was complemented exquisitely by the sweet potato's subtle earthiness. The Peacock Room is not just a restaurant; it's a sanctuary where the essence of New Orleans' spirit and culinary excellence are celebrated. To dine here is to partake in a tradition of gastronomic reverence, a place where every dish is a tribute to the artistry of cuisine. As I savored each moment, I was not just eating; I was part of a narrative that spoke of passion, dedication, and the pure joy of culinary arts. For those seeking not just a meal but an experience that captures the soul of NOLA, The Peacock Room awaits to enchant and inspire. It is a symphony of flavors, a canvas where each dish is painted with the brushstrokes of a chef's love—a culinary masterpiece in the heart of the city.

    We did not dine, but had cocktails. The bar was cute and we enjoyed the vibe. The cocktails were good, but the service was lacking. Some of our party had to walk to the bar for additional cocktails because our server disappeared for a while.

    The atmosphere of the venue was truly captivating, emanating a sense of elegance and sophistication that was hard to miss. The culinary experience was delightful, with the flavors of the food being simple yet sublime, leaving a lingering taste that was hard to forget. However, I did find the portions to be a bit on the smaller side, and I left feeling a tad bit unsatisfied.

    Love the decor and the ambiance, and let me tell you about the food! AMAZING. Loved the meatballs over grits!!! The smash burger was beyond yummy! The piece de resistance was the crawfish dumplings!!! Mouthwatering tender dumplings full of crawfish! Thursday nights are especially fun with live music. You cannot miss this one!

    We had reserved a table for 7 people. We were placed in a corner booth that had two tables, they placed together. The biggest issue with this is when the tables are placed together, you have 3 people sitting in the back of the both, 2 people sitting across from the back booth and 2 people sitting at either side of the table …. The problem is the two people on the sides of the table can’t reach the table … the seat is too far from the table. We asked what they could do and got the Response well we have sat 8 people there before. I told them again what the issue was and they, said we under stand, with no way to solve the problem. I asked what they could do and they had no answer. So we decided to push the table closer to one of the people on the side and asked if they had an extra chair we could use to put at the other end or put 3 people of the outside …. They proceed to say they were booked and had no extra chairs. We ultimately put 3 people in the back 1 on the corner, 1 on the edge and the 2 on the outside … we were very close and made the best of it …. Funny think multiple table we empty the entire time we were there. Food was good, customer service had a lot of room for improvement!! I would not go back or recommend this restaurant due to the last of customer service.

    Great experience! Our waiter was fun, open, and friendly. My coke came in a glass bottle (always nice) and my partner’s Shirley temple came with candied black cherries- delicious. I ordered the peacock burger with the house side salad, one of the best burgers I’ve ever had tbh. The salad was perfect. My partner ordered the hot chicken sandwich, which was surprisingly just as delicious as the burger 9/10. It was his birthday so the waitress gave us a complimentary toffee, nut, and chocolate bread pudding which was amazing as well. I highly recommend The Peacock Room. Overall rating: 9/10

    This was a weird experience. The food was excellent and the chef came out to speak and was lovely. However, our waitress, was truly terrible. I totally understand things get busy, but it was not busy and she spent more time talking to her friends than actually serving us. She never asked if we wanted refills, so we asked and then she forgot about them for 20 minutes. So I went to the bar to ask for a drink and she then told me to sit down. (she was standing around just talking the bartender about whatever) Then she brought the glass coke bottle to our table, spilled half of it and charged me $5 for a half empty glass bottle that took her forever to get to me. If it has been super busy I would have understood totally but we were one of three tables total in the restaurant. Again, good food AWFUL service. Will not go back.

    Food was meh. Ordered the hot bacon dip w fired crackers. Crackers were fried in old oil. Also order the tomato linguine with meatballs. The linguine was overcooked and cold, meatballs were salty. Overall, not pleased with food choices - over priced to say the least. Entertainment was sub par. Guitarist overshadowed the singer and she sang off tune on many songs. Together, they just seems out of sync. Disappointed to wait for the live music for several hours only to leave in 30 minutes. Reservations didn’t seem necessary- pretty empty for several hours.

    The restaurant is beautiful and quaint. Small but enough space for several parties to enjoy. The table next to us was ridiculously loud. The food was delicious! The brussel sprouts were very tasty! We requested a second order. The fries were good, but at $15 we expected a much larger portion. The smoked tomato linguine was delicious but also a very small portion. My husband loved his lobster dumplings and yellowtail tuna. Our daughter ordered the ice cream sandwich for dessert and loved it! The cheesecake was extremely ‘eggy’ (tasted like eggs) and not my taste. Overall we really enjoyed the experience.
