Description: Peacock Alley’s a la carte lunch menu is “Where New York Does Business." By the early evening, the iconic Cole Porter piano begins to play, as guests sip inspired and artful cocktails with rare and house-infused spirits. The sumptuous Sunday brunch was voted one of the 10 Best Brunches in New York City by Open Table in 2011 & 2012. The restaurant, bar and discreet lounge are located in the heart of the bustling main lobby of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The private dining rooms are ideal for small corporate lunches, private dinner events and celebrations, both small and large.

There is no more quintessential lunch experience than enjoying a Waldorf salad at Peacock Alley. The North Fork LI sparkling wine is a nice touch, too.

While staying at the Waldorf, we stopped in for some drinks. You'll find a great menu of unique drinks that'll make your visit memorable. Highly recommend the CHOCOLATINI if you have a sweet tooth, or the SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF if you're looking for something fun and historic.

We had such a lovely time at Peacock Alley. Friends and I met here after work for drinks and a few small plates and were so pleased with the lovely service and delicious cocktails!

A tour of the Waldorf included lunch at Peacock Alley. The menu was pre-set, but well chosen. We began with none-other than a Waldorf salad. The entree was a tender chicken leg/ thigh with vegetables. The dessert was a delcious, moist red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. This was a generous portioned lunch that topped off a lovely day.

My daughter wanted to go somewhere memorable for her first drink upon reaching the milestone age of 21. The Waldorf Astoria turned out to be a perfect choice. We sat at the bar. Doug the bartender made a perfect recommendation of a wine for her. Can't say enough good things about his excellent service. Made this occasion for her special.

Peacock Alley is directly in the center of the Waldorf. A great place to rest, watch people, have a lunch,etc. But the price is ridiculous for a, while lovely, diner atmosphere.

Stopped into Peacock Alley for some cocktails to experience the Waldorf Astoria. We weren't disappointed, the hotel is beautiful! Delighted to find the manager of Peacock Alley, Caoimhe, was Irish also, and she took excellent care of us, taking us through the cocktail menu and making some recommendations (the signature champagne cocktail was delicious!).

We recently stayed at the Waldorf Astoria and had a drink at the Peacock Alley bar. The service was good and choices numerous however there was a Waldorf Astoria price tag to match.
