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.

“Very disappointing anniversary dinner”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

A friend recommended that my husband and I chose this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. With 3 small kids, we do not get dates often and we were really looking forward to dining at what we thought was a nice restaurant. We had reservations for mid-week and the restaurant was not busy when we arrived. After waiting for our table, we were taken to a side room in the corner, right next to an extremely loud and large party. We couldn't even talk to each other due to the noise and proximity to the large group. Before ordering, we requested a different table. We were then moved to the bar area where it was crowded with businessmen watching sports at the bar and where it was very brightly lit. We ended up ordering our meal....it was okay. The atmosphere that we had to deal with, despite telling several staff members we were celebrating our anniversary, was terrible. We were upset that our anniversary dinner wasn't even remotely special. Would not return.

Mrs. Anderson-

Please accept my sincere apologies for the lack of customer service you received during your anniversary dinner. This is far outside our norm and not level of care our guests deserve, especially when celebrating an important occasion.

Please contact me at info@two25peoria.com - I'd like to attempt to make this right.

Thank you,
Shane White

“A quality restaraunt”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Excellent lunch menu and at a reasonable price. The complimentary breakfast associated with the hotel was second to none.

“Delicious food in nice hotel”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

Ok, I admit it was 100 degrees and I just didn't want to get in the car or walk anywhere so I went to the restaurant attached to my hotel. And I was very pleased. Prices were reasonable, wine list nice. My Sobe tuna came with a house salad that was slightly below par, nice dressing but limp lettuce. But the tuna was wonderful. Cooked medium rare in a onderful veggie broth, over noodles and veggies. Really flavorful and quite a special dish. Highly recommended.

“Downtown Dining Option”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Our recent Saturday night dining out option was Two25. There's only a handful of good dining establishments in downtown Peoria, and this is one of them. The dining room was moderately busy, actually more than I thought it might be. Our server (Gary) was prompt and efficient. Our entrees were selected from the seasonal menu and both good choices: duck breast and quinoa salmon. Also had to try a side of their mac n' cheese, which was delicious.

“Lunch Buffet is Quick and Good and Nice Atmosphere for Biz”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

This place was pretty classy, and great for a business visit....We did the lunch buffet, and the pizza and salad was fresh, and the service was very good.
