Me and my wife drove 2.5 hours to eat here after having an excellent experience roughly 2 years ago. We made a reservation and upon arrival we’re seated at our table. Shortly after arriving a maintenance worker began working right next to our table with a large ladder which took away from the experience. The soup was lukewarm however everything else was fantastic including the service from the bus boy.
My mom and I came here before a show and it was excellent. We do not live in Peoria but I plan on coming back with my husband and father again.
We tend to eat at Two25 fairly regularly seeings it’s not a long drive from our home and we have never had a bad experience there.
The food is always excellent and I believe they make the best cocktails in town!
The service is impeccable. Our water glasses were never empty, we were unobtrusively checked on. Sam, our server is attentive and outstanding in his job.
I’m usually not a fan of hotel dining so I was pleasantly surprised with Two25. After a very well made Martini at the bar our party of five were seated in a semi private area where we were able to have a conversation without having to shout to be heard. Wait person quickly came to our table and made knowledgeable suggestions regarding wines and menu offerings. Bruschetta appetizer was merely average, but calamari “sticks” were very good. My guests ordered filet, sea bass, and scallops which were fine, while I had the chicken carbonara which was rather bland. The surprise hit of the evening was the Spicy Thai curry. We didn’t try dessert but several items sounded interesting. Overall , a very pleasant experience in downtown Peoria.
Very nice, quick and attentive service. Initial problem with our table was resolved quickly. Drinks and entrees were priced a little high-end, quality of food is very close to hi-end. Calamari was among the best we’d ever had. Ribeye was good quality for the cost. Some at the table found the spice rub on the ribeye to be too salty but I liked it. Overall good experience, would go again.
We have been to two25 several times before, always with excellent service and impeccable food. This time we felt the service was lacking. Our waitress was good, but not as engaged as others we’ve had here, and surreal other people we interacted with were not as friendly as we would have hoped. It was the kind of service I’d expect at a fast casual establishment. Adequate but not worth the bill. Our meat was cooked well and most of the food was very good, but my au gratin potatoes were under seasoned and a little firm. Again, adequate but a large bill for adequate.
We always enjoy ourselves at Two25. The food is always wonderful and our waiter, Sam, and his assistant, Noah, were a joy.
Emmy friend and I dined at Two25 on Saturday evening. We were immediately seated even though we were 15 minutes late due to inclement weather. Our waiter was great! He had water in the table by the time we opened our menu. He told us of the menu, asked if we had any questions and took our order. The salads were crisp and cold, very fresh! The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail are the best around here. Only place better is Florida.
We had an amazing meal!
Never been befor and recommended by friends
Great service. Fast apps. Outstanding, elegant cuisine. Jazz band outside was amazing, but nice and quiet inside. Dark, intimate atmosphere. Friendly staff.
Great! Really enjoyed this cute little place and the food was fantastic! Servers were on top of it as well. We did not want for anything while we were there-Very well taken care of!
We had a great dinner and the best waitress ever. She was attentive but not in our face. Some waiters are so attentive that it is distractive. Our back waiter was great too. We had a wonderful experience. We both had the filet medallions, and they were delicious. Cooked to perfection. We were a few minutes late due to the St Jude run , but the hostess was ever so gracious. Thanks for making my daughter's 50th bday dinner so special.
Outstanding meal. One of the best steak dinners I’ve had. Definitely will be back!
Beautiful and romantic restaurant. Excellent food and libations. Extensive wine list. Entire staff was very attentive especially our waiter Austin. Definitely will be back.
First time here living in Peoria for 18 years and will definitely be coming back. Absolutely excellent service and food!
We have been several times and know what to expect. We ate a little earlier this time due to a scheduled event after dinner and as we had an early reservation, we got the impression that the restaurant wasn't quite ready for dinner. Had a shift change prior to the "dinner crowd" and that might have been the reason.
The food was excellent, however the service was not at all. We waited for 45 min for our food to get boxed and order after dinner drinks, my husband then had to go up to the bar and get our drinks himself since they were sitting for over 7 min. We were not offered anything else just a check dropped off to the table that another server cashed out for us. We then asked to speak to the manager whom was sitting at a table with other guests, and he offered no sincere apology leaving us feeling that he didn't really care either. This was our first time there and it was not a good experience.
The restaurant was fairly empty. It was dinner for two a romantic night planned they sat us next to a party of 8 just loud and wasn’t what we planned the food was not good but the service was decent
Two25 never disappoints! We love the food, the music and the atmosphere!
Two25 is a perfect place for a simple or a fancy meal. We did our anniversary dinner here. We noticed others just grabbing a quick meal. All should be comfortable here.
I've ordered the rack of Lamb most visits. It comes with an amazing multilayer potatoes au gratin and sauteed spinach. This is a perfect combination. This visit was my favorite yet. For some reason the food was even better than its normal A+.
Service? The best. We felt like our experience mattered to our server. Donna is amazing.
The only thing that could have been better is the seating. The restaurant was half empty, but the host set a LOUD person at the booth immediately behind us. With so many open tables, seating people at every other table would have made this a much better experience with distance between the loud person and other guests.
Fantastic overall. Can't wait to go back.
Great as always
Get the pear salad- it’s so good and definitely worth the up charge
First time at this restaurant. We ordered filets and they were delicious. The service was awesome. We will go back again!
Really good rack of lamb and 30 layer au gratin potatoes. Excellent vibe! Great meal
Great service (Thank you, Isaac.)
A young man seated us, I believe his name is Evan(?). Evan must be new, but he has been poorly trained and he has an arrogant attitude. As a host he should have carried our drinks from the bar. He showed us a table which was the last near the kitchen in an empty dining room even though we made the effort to make a reservation. He then immediately scampered off. The table was not to our liking so we moved. This seemed to upset the child as he later glared at us from the end of the room and whispered to some of his colleagues. This brief interaction put a definite damper on our meal.
On the positive side, the steaks were very good and the waitress was good.
Where we were seated could have used a bit more light
The end result is that we will skip your establishment the next time we are in your area.
I loved everything about it definitely will be going back
Always great food and great service! Love this restaurant!
The New York Strip is outstanding!! I highly recommend it.
Great evening with very attentive wait staff. Food was excellent. I had the rack of lamb and it was very nicely prepared. We’ll be back.
The waitress chatted with another table for at least ten minutes about her other job (where they had been) before we had anything except the menus. We were the only two tables as far as we could tell. The salmon my husband ordered was rare in the middle. He asked them to just take the salmon but the waitress insisted on sending the whole plate. He didn't get it back for 10 to 15 minutes, and by then I was done eating so he just had it boxed up to go. My food was flavorful, but the chicken was overcooked. The salad was good, as was dessert (complimentary, as it was my birthday). The waitress did take 1/2 off the salmon dinner. I still thought overall it wasn't a very good experience.
Steak not prepared properly....asked for well. Cooked to medium.
Food and service were both excellent. We have been here many times and will be back
Our food was great our server was not so great he seem to be in a hurry most of the time and wasn’t all of that friendly!
Best pizza in downstate Illinois. Service always top shelf!
Had dinner before a concert. Great wine list and delicious food. Our waitress was wonderful as well.
Every drink, entree was phenomenal!
Dinner was fabulous. The rack of lamb was cooked to perfection and the sea bass was just as great! We went for a birthday dinner and had a wonderful evening!
Seated in a dining area with great opportunity for conversation for our group. Wait staff was courteous and helpful. Group ordered a wide variety of menu items, from clam chowder to steak dinner. All were satisfied. 30 layer au gratin potato a must try!
