Always a pleasure to have a special occasion there. However if you ask Michael, I did have an altercation with a “gentleman” who had no respect for the other guests, using foul language that became very upsetting. I was headed to speak to Michael about it but the “gentleman” continued and I handled it myself. This is no fault of the restaurant but really should have been taken care of before I had to finally address him. Thanks

My husband and I first learned about Peacock Inn thanks to a gift card. We went this week to celebrate our anniversary. The inn reminded us of Cape May. We felt instantaneously at ease. The staff were attentive and courteous. Instead of the five-course tasting menu we opted for a la carte settling on a two-course meal. We started with sautéed ricotta gnocchi and sweet onion soup. They whet our appetite! For the entrees we had king salmon and surf and turf. The balance of the flavors was memorable. The flavors were new and exotic at the same time comforting and pleasing. Although at a glance the portions looked small to me, after the entree I was too full for dessert. (I had a slice and a half of bread.) I highly recommend Peacock Inn for celebrating special occasions.

First the positive- food was inventive and delicious! Dessert was not as good, which is the only reason I gave a 4 star rating.

The negatives- Reservations at 8:15, didn't get seated until 8:45. Bar service was slow! Ordered drinks while waiting for our table, 2 drink orders arrived after 15 minutes and then the other 2 arrived 10 minutes later. Table service was slow- sat down at 8:45 and waiter didn't come to take our order until 9:10! Frustrating especially since our reservation was at 8:15 and we were all hungry. Expected better service on all ends from a restaurant of this caliber.

Overall enjoyable experience!
A special thanks to our amazing waiter Nevin. He was knowledgeable about the food, wine and spirits. Nevin and the other professional dining room staff elevated the experience with their perfect service and charming personalities. We especially enjoyed the Beet Salad & Hamachi appetizers.
The bartender was great...so knowledgeable and professional. He maintained a relaxed presence while managing the small but very busy bar. We really enjoyed sitting at the bar after our meal.
Highly recommended!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the peacock inn last night. What an amazing experience . The food was out of this world. We both tried the tasting menu with the non Wine paring which included 6 cocktails, beer or cider. The beverage director Patrick did an amazing job with all the drinks. Our servers were awesome. Overall one of the best dining experiences in New Jersey. Will definitely be going back to check out the rest of the menu.

Beautiful setting. Wedding reception in adjacent room added significant noise. Food portions were small, but beautifully presented. They try to be on par with a New York fine dining experience, charging NY prices, but we never had portions that small, unless it was a tasting menu in NY.

We had a fabulous birthday dinner here. They gave the three of us a glass of champagne upon our arrival and a cute little assortment of sweets on a happy birthday plate, very generous. The food was delicious and service excellent. Due to the high prices we only visit for special occasions, but always enjoy it. We will go back!

My husband and I had dinner at the Peacock for our Anniversary. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings. The food was delicious, the wine pairing choices excellent and the service was very attentive. We had let them know when we made the reservations that it was our anniversary. They wished us a Happy Anniversary when we arrived, presented us with complementary prosecco after we were settled, the menu was personalized with a Happy Anniversary message, as was our desserts. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

I wrote in our Open Table reservation that it was our 12th anniversary and they read this and had custom menus tailored for us, complimentary proseccos and personalized dessert. We'll definitely be back for another special occasion there again! I have spread the words as well to friends via social media.

The place itself is elegant, clean and well maintained. The chef was out on maternity leave so the menu hadn't changed in a few days but since it was new to us it didn't matter. I was momentarily worried about who was cooking but the food was wonderful. Perfect even. We both had the short ribs which was in a reduction with marrow that was heavenly. The wait staff was very good and attentive but not hoovering. And they added in some very nice touches because it was my wife's birthday. Great dining experience.

The Peacock Inn is my new favorite restaurant! The food, service and overall atmosphere was outstanding! It was my birthday and we received complimentary champagne and I was presented with a menu with a personalized "Happy Birthday" greeting to me! Our waiter was excellent and allowed lots of time inbetween courses for a "relaxed" dinner. Everything was just wonderful and I had the best birthday! An additional nice touch is the complimentary valet parking. We will be back!

I must say that our dinner at the peacock Inn was absolutely fantastic. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and they took the time to personalize the menus for our special occasion. I can't say enough things about the manager, Steve and all that he did to make us feel comfortable at the restaurant. I would highly, highly, highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to have a fine dining experience, a great meal, or just celebrating any special occasion. This restaurant is definitely worth the trip and you will not be disappointed.

The service was superb. Our waiter was very friendly and very knowledgeable regarding the food and the wines. Serving us complimentary champagne to celebrate my wife's birthday was a very nice touch. Everyone from the "busboy" to the parking attendant was very friendly and professional. We very much appreciated the fact that the noise level was low... compared to other restaurants we have gone to recently. We enjoyed all of the food items that we ordered from the ala carte menu. As another much-appreciated nice touch, the manager visited our table between our main course and desert... to inquire as to whether everything was satisfactory.

We have dined at the Peacock Inn before but the last time was several years ago. My wife and I arrived expecting a good high-end meal. We chose the Tasting Menu with wine pairing and what we got was an extraordinary meal. Each course offered a surprise in presentation, taste, and texture. The wines were perfectly paired. Service was just right. We will certainly be going again.
