We went to dinner here at the last minute with my wife and children, and I was immediately struck by the high level of service and the ambience. The food was truly amazing, and they managed to satisfy me even though I am vegetarian! The gnocchi was a must have as well as the butternut squash soup! The bread was... More

After months of swearing we were going to dine here, we finally made it in. We both had the five course tasting menu (With a complimentary amuse bouche, without the cheese bar) with wine traditional wine pairings. Every single dish came plated to perfection, went beautifully with the pairing, and was divine. The cheese gnocchi has to be the most... More

We celebrated a very special wedding anniversary with family and friends there. It was fabulous! Michele, the event planner, and staff went the extra mile to make the day more special. Everything was ideal... from the delicious food and wonderful upscale ambiance to the gracious staff. Highly recommend!!

The Peacock used to be a place to avoid....tired decor and even more tired cuisine. Not any more! The space and menu have been beautifully upgraded. Well done.

We went here for the first time and had their 5 course tasting menu. The Peacock Inn is definitely for special occasions and it didn't disappoint. Each entree looked as good as it tasted. We will be back.

We came here for a brunch with 4 of our girlfriends. It's a small place from outside but very well kept from inside. They have complementary valet parking which is due to small parking lot. It worked great for us. It was raining that Sunday n the host brought us in with Umbrellas. The place is bit swanky and will... More
