The bar is stocked with everything from the classics to hard-to-find spirits, with an impressive collection of rum and madeira and an emphasis on drinks that are light and floral.

We only drank. Wonderful time. Would have liked to have a choice of wear to sit. Next time will request sofa/lounge area instead of tabel since we were just drinking.

I visited towards the end of the night. The food (salad and bread pudding) tasted as if it had been sitting and wasn’t the freshest. The ambience and dining room details were very cute. I was looking forward to a better overall experience.

Live music was so loud you couldn’t visit at all and singer was not very good. Loved our server but it took a while to get attention. Chocolate martini was excellent.

Everything about the peacock room is thoughtful and beautifully executed, but not pretentious. Nino was a lovely and helpful server, and gave excellent recommendations. I will say that the space is more for lounging and cocktails than dinner, and the serving sizes reflect that. They are not particularly large but they are filling, and the flavors are exceptional. We will absolutely be returning. I highly recommend.

THE NOISE LEVEL WAS OFF THE CHARTS L O U D!!! It was totally unbearable. I was there with a party of four at a small table and we could not hear anything the other person was saying. There was a group of VERY young girls literally screaming and running between their two tables showing pictures on their phones. Each time a new picture was displayed 18-20 (barely) legal girls all screamed in unison! The waitstaff did absolutely NOTHING to squelch this mental asylum behavior. We were planning to try your Pot de Creame dessert but had to evacuate the restaurant to preserve our sanity. The food was very good…to bad it was such a HORRIBLY LOUD environment and your staff was to poorly trained to do anything about it.

Not the ambiance I was expecting. The seating is like metal patio furniture and somewhat uncomfortable. The music had a more techno beat than a cool jazzy undertone.
We only ordered a dessert trio of praline, brownie and ooiegooie cake. It was subpar in my opinion.
I’ve experienced it because I wanted to see what the buzz was about. Don’t feel the need to go again.

Was really looking forward to checking this new place out…The room is beautiful but the acoustics are WAY TOO LOUD… I am not a fan of a place that you have to yell to the person sitting next to you . Everyone in the place had to yell which made it extreme loud. So sad we couldn’t even hear the music.. the menu selections were uninteresting.. we left in 30 minutes.. If they could do some noise softening we would love to try again someday.

This is a beautiful locale. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food excellent. We ordered the boozy brunch punch and love it. Also had the salt & pepper shrimp. We ordered seconds of the shrimp. Would recommend for a brunch!

The room was gorgeous! It was the perfect blend of old world and hip. The atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful. Our waitress, Dorothy, was super attentive and we appreciated that because when you’re traveling you encounter a lot of crabby people. The food was divine! We had the Seafood Tower which was delicious with lobster toast sandwiches and pimento cheese toast points. I had the shrimp and grits and it was pretty good. The grits could have been creamier. My daughter had the avocado toast with eggs Benedict and she said it was amazing.

They were sold out of the burger, and they only had a few entree options so I ended up getting a grilled cheese, which I could’ve made in my hotel room..

Our waitress, Dorothy, was amazing and sweet. This was a planned dinner with drinks for a few friends of mine to get together and catch up after a long period of not seeing each other. The atmosphere was very intimate and beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our mini-occasion. Our drinks were very tasty as was our meal. Definitely will be coming back again, hopefully very soon.

Being in the hospitality industry myself, I understand the delays that may occur due to reduced staffing levels. Although it was apparent that there was a shortage, the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I am a huge fan of Peacock Room and will continue to support this wonderful establishment!
