We love this place! Finally found a great place for Sunday brunch for our family with gluten free needs who take great care with our food AND they are so accommodating with great options (use delicious locally sourced Rise Bakery for their buns!). Both gluten and non-gluten eating members are happy here! Also had a wonderful dinner before taking Uber to the Kennedy Center one night before a show and it was delicious, quick and easy to get to the show on time!

The food was amazing. I had the beets and goat cheese, calamari, and the crab pesto risotto. My daughter had the ravioli. Everything was exceptional. Even the bread was on point. I ordered a French 77, which some bartenders don’t know what that is. They had no problem getting it together. I would definitely go back.

Peacock Café is a classic, love their brunch. They need to fix the heating situation, as their door has a problem keeping the cold out. The room was very cold and that made the experience a little uncomfortable. We had to wait for about 10 minutes although we had a reservation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year's Day brunch at the Peacock Cafe. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Great smoothies too! Coffee could have been a bit stronger for the morning after and the noise level was very loud, but we would return for another Sunday brunch when our heads are a bit clearer!

The heat was broken in the entire restaurant and we were not warned (even though we had an advanced reservation). That day the high temperature was in the 20s so this was unbearable. I'm sure this must be a health violation. It appeared to be a long-term problem as there were sheets covering all the windows. The food was mediocre and the service underwhelming. I was formerly a fan of the Peacock cafe but I'm not sure I'll return after this kind of dishonesty and poor service.

The service was exemplary. I was eating with a friend who is hard of hearing and they put us in a little alcove where they could turn the music way down which made it so he could hear conversation.

At the end of the meal, one of the young men ran to Wisconsin St. to call us a cab because my phone was dead and it was raining.

Also the food was delicious- the crab cakes were excellent- I would return for those alone.

This is one of our neighborhood favorites. The food suits everyone, as it is healthy and fresh, but will also please those in the family who want a burger and fries. The staff are always welcoming, and its great for brunch and to sit outside and people watch on a nice day. There is also a great selection of cocktails and wine.

As always a cheerful and friendly welcome at the door and excellent variety on the menu!

Servers were calm and timely despite the “lunch rush” hour

My colleague, visiting from North Carolina, was delighted to be invited to visit Peacock Cafe as we did last year for an editorial meeting.

A lovely choice for a special dinner before a show at the Kennedy Center! Festively decorated - really elegant! Food was great! Vegetarian pasta dish had lots of veggies and flavor, and the pistachio coated cod with spinach had a delicious sauce with figs. Service was impeccable. Thoroughly pleased with the choice and would certainly return.

We chose Peacock for our anniversary celebration after a show at the Kennedy Center. We had a wonderful experience. Everyone was attentive and helpful, we were able to relax and enjoy a leisurely dinner. The food was excellent! The three course pre-fixe is a great option and very well priced. We will definitely keep Peacock top of the list for dining in Georgetown.

Dined here for a birthday lunch and could not have been more pleased. They have a lovely outdoor patio and the inside is very nice as well. Menu is well rounded with traditional entrees and a great sandwich and salad selection. We both ordered the 3 course lunch for approx. $27. God the Med salad which was very fresh, the Gene Kelly sandwich and the sorbet and berries. The sandwich was excellent and the sorbet tasted like a vanilla bean which was a nice surprise as I was expecting the usual lemon. Also got the ravioli which was served on a bed of fresh spinach and was excellent as well. Of note, the entrees are full size with the special. Good wine (somewhat limited selection but excellent choices), great bourbon and scotch. Definitely will be returning soon.

It was our first time to dine at Peacock Café. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was attentive and the service was very good. There is a wide offering of selections on the menu. I had the Rainbow Trout special for lunch and my partner had the Crab Cake meal. We loved our food and enjoyed being able to sit outside on such a beautiful day. I look forward to coming back for a Sunday brunch.

I have been going to Peacock Café for years. It's a phenomenal spot for a good-tasting, classy and relatively affordable Georgetown dinner. The food is just great (try the savory tomato bisque) and the ambiance is great for all occasions - from intimate dates to loquacious friend reunions. Check it out!
