Description: Two25 is a polished casual restaurant located in the Mark Twain hotel of downtown Peoria. Our signature dinner entrees include a broiled New York Strip served with classic Gratin Dauphinois - a 30 layer potato gratin, a Dijon Crusted Salmon, and a rich Seafood Carbonara. Our dessert menu features choices such as delectable Chocolate Mousse topped with a Raspberry Chambord Sauce . Diners can complement their meals with our wine program - a large selection is available by the glass, flight, half bottle or bottle. Our reserve list by the bottle is sure to help you celebrate that special event. Our lunch selection includes great soups, sandwiches, and a pizza buffet with a fresh salad bar. If you wish host your next event in one of our private dining rooms please contact Seth Hanchett. We look forward to serving you.

Good atmosphere, the buffet (pizza and salad) is a great alternative for 10 bucks. The service is very friendly. Good option

“Very nice restaurant in a really good hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Hopefully you will find a parking space, it is usually a busy area due to the fact this intimate restaurant is in a very nice hotel. Relax in the library type lobby whilst waiting for your table or go to the bar where the bar tender makes some of the best cocktails in Peoria. The ambiance is very welcoming but it can be a bit dark. Makes it hard for menu reading if your eyesight is not perfect. There is an eclectic choice of entres so try something a little different. The food is not the exceptional but it is quite good. Service is okay. Not the best restaurant in town but definitely worth the visit.

“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

We have had our eye on Two25 for some time since it replaced the pizza place that previously occupied the space. A look online showed a creative menu and positive reviews. There are two foundations I demand from any upscale restaurant, attentive service and quality food. Two25 met those requirements with room to spare. The service was excellent without a par in Peoria. Water glasses were not allowed to get lower than 1/2 full, empty plate were quickly removed and service was well coordinated between the waiter and assistant.

Food was uniformly good. The main course of seafood carbonara was a little more like an alfredo that the smoky tone expected in a carbonara, and the filet mignon was done exactly at a medium and was a dry aged prime grade steak.

We'll definately return!

“Very Average and Over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

As others have said, this is a very average restaurant, where the food is described better on the menu than it tastes. It is too expensive for the quality and flavor. The wait staff is prompt. They play awful muzak much too loud and there is zero ambiance, it is just dark. For the prices they charge it should appear nicer with tablecloth. The food is very bland and while the portions are large that is not a good thing.

“Too expensive for just okay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2011

I felt bad for the bartender who was almost hassled by consumers who wanted to use their drink tickets, but were so limited. Food way too expensive!
