    Server wasn't clear about the extra charges for bottle of water or for some of the additions to food...they mentioned it very quickly almost slyly after the fact. Never seen something like that at any restaurants arojnd here in Halifax very surprising! Food was great, ambience was gorgeous. Will recommend with an air of caution around the fine print.

    Had a great time at Peacock Wine Bar. Tara was really knowledgeable about all of the wines and cocktails on their menu and was able to help choose a lovely champagne, which we paired with oysters. The oysters were delicious and fresh, but had been quite chipped during the shucking process, so there were a few sharp shell bits in them. Once we finished the course we moved on to wine and cocktails - again, Tara was able to help some of our guests choose a wine that suited their taste and could confidently suggest cocktails for the rest of the group. The cocktail menu was well-rounded, with a variety spirit-forward cocktails and crushable ones as well. The room was beautiful, with lighting and music that contributed to an upscale, intimate atmosphere. I did spot a mouse which scurried across the floor during our time, but have been told this is common amongst harbour-front restaurants in Halifax. Our service was good - as mentioned above our server was extremely knowledgeable about the wine list and cocktails, even going so far as to provide us some insight into traditional methods of making champagne. They were timely and attentive to our drink levels and were not overly present - always doing a good job of being there whenever we needed. When we had first sat down they had asked who was the person who made the reservation (it was me), and had pointed out that I had two reservations (I had intended to change one but didn’t realize I created a separate booking). The way it was brought up made me feel like I had inconvenienced the restaurant, and was slightly embarrassing considering I was with work/Clients. Overall, we enjoyed our time at Peacock and will definitely be back.

    First and last visit to Peacock. Food was mediocre at best. Had Dine Around menu. Chicken Parm was burnt all the way around the edges and it lacked flavour. Portion size was good. It did not come with any sides but we were told this before we ordered it. Ordered warm radicchio salad as a side which was a served as a whole head. Would have preferred it chopped into bite size pieces. The chocolate flan for dessert was a pie shaped slice that was gelatinous, not the smooth and creamy texture one would usually expect in a flan.

    Valentines menu was not up to par, didn’t enjoy much of it especially for the price. The server was good and the manager at the counter was lovely, he assured we were given a good dessert after not finishing ours. The lighting and vibes in the room were great.

    first off thank you for making this valentines dinner date special. The greeting was amazing an friendly, I appreciate the welcome from the waitress of our drinks I requested in my notes. The waitress was very helpfully, knowledgeable to a understanding of what certain dishes are. Only thing i would pick out that bugs us was the size of the table. wasn't a big issues but pending on what people order an such it just clusters the table. 100% will be making this our special date night dinner nights.

    An amazing meal. Service was perfect and the wine recommendation was great. The food came super hot and fresh, and was perfectly paced with our meal. They were also very accommodating with allergies and dietary restrictions. I’ve been here a couple times and this time was the BEST. I would recommend this place for a date night or girls night.

    Ambiance it’s nice, but it’s an overrated restaurant. Cocktails were average, I ordered the steak tartare it had a lot of horseradish sauce, which overpowered the whole dish, however the seared scallops were really good but overpriced to get only 5 pieces which server said it had 6-7.

    Great date night with my husband. Oysters to start and fondue for 2 was a fun meal. Wine , service and overall ambiance was great. I’ve been before with friends and found the music so loud we could hardly speak to another. Didn’t have this issue this go around. Server - can’t remember name - was great. Friendly and attentive as required.

    The food is great, creative and interesting. The service is confused / confusing . Would’ve expected some warmth, a smile but was very dry, impersonal and task oriented. Had written in the reservation request that it was my husband’s 40th - no mention of it, no gesture… Decor is modern and restaurant noise level high.
