We had lunch here with friends and while everything was good, there was just nothing exceptional. They have a fabulous outdoor patio in the back that would be terrific when the weather is warmer and that would deserve a higher rating for atmosphere. Service was efficient and good and the atmosphere was white tablecloth and cozy. I chose the Peacock... More

The service was very good and friendly. But the food - just so so. I had fish, a bit overcooked and more bones than I have ever seen in Bronzino. It's usually such a pleasant fish choice but I have always said " no fish on weekends - not fresh from the fish market." Should have listened to my own... More

Located in Georgetown, the Peacock Cafe continues to serve excellent food at great price points, including weekend breakfast/brunch. Two brothers own the restaurant and are always on-site to assure customer service and friendly conversation. Maziar, the chef, creates wonderful American cuisine, as well as special dishes from Persia. The pistachio soup is unforgettable. His French Toast with warm strawberries and... More

Just next door to the a more famous restaurant, the Peacock Cafe is an pleasant delight in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. The ambience is lovely, the service attentive, and the food, delicious. We walked past the crowd next door on the way out, and were glad we had dined at the Peacock!

This is a very good place to eat with excellent service. Important Tip: There is convenient parking garage next door. The starters & salads, including calamari, bruschetta, and a blue cheese salad were tasty. The filet mignon was delicious, fixed to order, and generous in size. The accompaniments, potatoes, etc., were well prepared. The chocolate lava cake for dessert was... More

The menu beckoned so we made a reservation. In an area that is full of great places to eat, this was oddly quiet. The music and lighting compete for attention - both are bad. The staff are lovely, service is very good and the food is delicious. All in all it made for an odd evening but the food made... More

My wife an I arrived a little after 9:00 on a Sunday morning and had our pick of tables. Given it was a beautiful day, we sat outside streetside. The staff were extremely welcoming and gracious. Over the next 30 minutes, a number of other parties joined us - many families with young children. The staff seemed to know many... More

My wife and I came here for brunch….food was good, but service was horrible. We waited >10 minutes on the patio to be acknowledged by our waiter. The part that was troubling was that the place was dead and the entire staff was gathered around the bar chatting. Once we were acknowledged (without an apology, mind you) our order was... More

When we came to DC I asked around-places to eat in Georgetown and this one was mentioned numerous times so we booked it for our anniversary meal . I booked on open table expecting the place to be full but no need to , we were probably only around half a dozen in the restaurant so not a great atmosphere.... More

This is a very pretty little restaurant. Service very friendly. Food was good; not the best I've ever eaten, but good. I would go back!
