Cocktail Bar

Effortlessly blending the eccentric personality of New Orleans’ bar culture with the old-world charm and sophistication of a classic social club, Peacock Room delivers a bright and vibrant feel during the day and a sexy, moody atmosphere come sundown, perfect for an afternoon aperitif, social dinner or an end-of-evening nightcap. 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. The sipping is complemented by an elevated selection of small plates from Chef Chris Lusk that feature refined shareable interpretations of regional classics.

    We came for snacks and cocktails before a tour of the town. The drinks are great and we loved the atmosphere. They also brought out a complimentary dessert for my mothers birthday. The service was a little slow, but the longer was busy, overall a good experience!

    Booked this as a late Mother's Day brunch reservation so it's not their fault. This is a lounge for sure- much smaller than pics suggest. Lovely decor and cute date night spot. Menu is very limited and the food was tepid in temperature, albeit tasty. They did not have some menu choices or didn't have the full dish- no eggs with the shrimp and grits although we were told the eggs were cooked into the grits- . Overall, nice place if you use it for what it's intended for- drinks and pics but not for a full meal.

    The staff was very attentive. My restaurant view was very nice but from my husbands angle he get like he was in . Cafeteria. I think maybe the iron chairs and lack of warmth looking toward the bar really didn’t have a great vibe. The other view however was very nice. My husband enjoyed the steak but I thought the food really lacked flavor and was gazing around for a salt shaker. Great cocktails and great service.

    When we booked it we did not realize that it wasn’t a true dining experience more like a bar/cocktail experience. Menu is very limited and the seating is not very warm and cozy. The music was so loud we had to yell at each other so we could here what we were saying. We were seated next to a couple who we could hear all of their conversation. Very weird experience. Food was excellent as well as cocktails.

    Beautiful restaurant and A+ service (Art was our waiter). Live music perfumers by some very talented musicians during Sunday brunch. Menu is limited but what they have is delicious. Highly recommend the “Peacock Tower” as an appetizer which is a sampler of four of their most popular appetizers. It’s definitely something to share between at least 2 if not three people. I wasn’t too hungry for the delicious shrimp and grits after my husband and I hated the Tower. Highly recommend!

    The live music and lounge area is really nice to relax and have a cocktail. The food however is not good at all. You could tell the fries were cooked in old oil and the other food was lacking in flavor. Tuna, cheese, and shrimps!!

    We arrived for dinner, were seated, only to be informed by our server the kitchen had just closed for the night. Our server was very apologetic and understanding of our disappointment. We did enjoy a tasty round of cocktails while looking for another dinner option. I frequent Peacock Room for brunch and was very excited to experience dinner for the first time, especially since they a offered a late reservation time that accommodated my schedule that night. Hoping to experience dinner there but will keep in mind to reserve a much earlier time.

    The food was much better than expected for a hotel lounge/restaurant. My buddy had the burger and it looked amazing and my chicken on a biscuit was very very good. The biscuit f one of the best I have had here in New Orleans. Bread pudding not the best in town but more than adequate. My only complaint is that there is no bar service in the sweet adjacent lounge, one must get up and go to the bar. There is an automatic 20% tip built into all bar service --and I get it servers deserve the gratuity -- but it would be nice to be served. Music was great, atmosphere is just adorable with all the kitcshy-peacock stuff.

    The atmostsphere and drinks were a 10/10, however the food did not live up to my expectations especially considering the price. The fried lobster tail within the peacock tower was a bit greasy, the shrimp in the shrimp and grits was difficult to eat, and the burger was bland and lacked flavor. Overall I would say just come to this place for the atmosphere, live music, and drinks. Do not spend your money on the food.

    This place has a lot of potential. It falls short in service and food quality. The staff who attended to us forgot our order and asked many times if we wanted to place an order after we had done so. This happened again moments later when the appetizers were brought and the same server asked if we wanted entrees…which we had ordered and confirmed already. They also don’t seem to enjoy their job, interacting as little as possible and seem irritated at answering normal questions one would ask the first time they visit a restaurant. While the decor is beautiful, it lacks heart and energy due to how the staff carry themselves. The food is dense and messy. Sloppy presentation, inconsistent flavors, and overall mediocre at best. It’s worth seeing the decor and then walking a few blocks to actually eat at Josephine Estelle or Seaworthy or drink and Bar Marilou.

    If you are looking for a hearty meal, this is not the place to go. I had the lentil dish. The portion size was very small. The dish itself lacked flavor and texture. The appetizers were also mediocre. I had a cheese plate that had relatively little cheese and a lot of toast. Perhaps I should not be too critical of this, but I was expecting slices of a variety of cheeses. The waiter was very nice, so no complaints there. Noise level is moderately high

    The food was great, but the service was subpar. It wasn’t busy at all. The server just chose talking vs. serving. It took forever for the server to check back in on us. We had to call other servers just to try to reorder a drink. Great atmosphere, with great potential!
