The Peacock is in a lovely downtown location with chic yet cozy decor inside and a lush dining patio outside. It feels like an oasis. All of the staff was quite attentive, and our server particularly went out of her way to insure our dining experience was optimal. The food is fantastic from the grilled octopus to the kefthas to the tangine to the scrumptious chocolate torte with a diverse selection of wines.

dined indoors (Oct 2021). the decor is very beautiful and medditerrean-ish. The only ding is that this is the hotel restaurant and still kinda has that 'hotel dining room that is used for breakfast-lunch-dinner' vibe. (the paper printed menus for example)

The food was really interesting and tasty. Really enjoyed the lamb, the octopus appetizer was excellent, and the sides were very good.

definitely would go back.

The restaurant’s aesthetic was lovely. The food was so so good. We had the beef hummus, roasted chicken tajine, beef kabobs, and homemade pistachio ice cream with baklava. They were all 10/10.

Had the best lunch on the outside patio, had the best server, Ian. He made some great recommendations that led me to some wonderful choices. I had the mint lemonade and the lamb kabob and it was perfect, the pita too was so fresh! The whole ambiance was breathtaking, both inside and out, very glad I stopped by!

This might be one of the best restaurants I’ve ever visited. The food is truly spectacular. I wish I had extra capacity so I could try everything. Service was 5 stars or higher. Coming back here for sure.

We had been looking forward to our visit since the beginning of Covid, and today was our lunch reservation. Service was great and decor is beautiful but food is mediocre - especially for the cost. I went with my close friend and we each had a cocktail, and meal and share an all and dessert and it was $86 / person. I office around the area and can think of a dozen places with better food at a fraction of the cost. Glad we went to check it out but I’m not sure I’ll be back - unless for happy hour.

Nice patio, great server! Good food and good company.
I always get the grill chicken kebob but tried the Tagine for fun. It was good.
Pretty and taste drinks.

Parking is horrible. Street is narrow. Way way crowded part of 2nd street. Recommend parking far away, but I must say the valet saved me and it was worth $15 plus the $10 tip. I guess! hahaha

Very disappointed with the food. The octopus was rubbery, the saganaki was very mediocre and the chicken kababs were tough and inedible. Beautiful restaurant, but today was certainly an off day for the kitchen.

I love Peacock, this was my 4-5th time eating here. They removed some of my faves from the menu like the English Pea dip (out of this world), the Short Ribs and the Matzo Ball Soup. But I did get to try some new options. I do think the prices are a bit high for lunch but other than, no complaints. Its a beautiful restaurant with delicious food.

Pita bread has to be grilled more. My food sashucka eggs was extremely spicy so i couldn’t eat it. Saganaki cheese was excellent. Mint lemonade was bitter with not too much mint inside.
Service was good
