A word from Table 19 - Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette
Table 19 has a rich history going back as far as the beginning of the original Pere Marquette Hotel. The upscale restaurant in the Pere Marquette was Carnegie’s. It was the epitome of modern elegance in its time and quickly became a place to go for every special occasion. For those truly wishing to make a memorable experience, there was Table 19, the most sought after table in the restaurant. This table was the place for proposals, anniversaries and other major life events. Keeping with the original Pere Marquette, we are proud to present our restaurant…Table 19.

    THIS RESTURANT IS IN A VERY HISTORIC HOTEL IN PEORIA,ILL WHICH I HAVE VISITED FOR 20 YEARS. THE RIBEYE ON-THE-BONE STEAK WAS DRY, NOT JUICY,AND SLIGHTLY CHEWY. MY WIFE STATED THAT THE FILET WAS DONE WELL. WE WILL TRY THE BRUNCH IN THE FUTURE,BUT WE WILL DO DINNER WHERE WE KNOW THE STEAKS ARE BETTER.SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT,BUT I WENT FOR THE STEAK. PS: FOR SOME REASON WE DID NOT GET POINTS FOR USING THIS RESTURANT!

    We had a great experience at Table 19 from great service to great food. Everything was timely and had a nice selection for everything. I am not a fan of Brussel sprouts and was told they are worth trying... I admit they were pretty good!

    Steaks were great - even though the kitchen made them wrong. I ordered the skirt steak medium, my husband the NY strip medium rare. His came out medium and mine medium rare. They made me a new one and sent the undercooked one home with us since my husband said he'd eat his strip medium. Service was great and our server Jessica was very attentive. Sadly, we were one of 4 tables in the entire restaurant at 7pm on a Saturday night. Pretty decor but still very clear your eating in a corporate hotel chain restaurant. Brussel sprouts were awesome, as was the asparagus.

    Wonderful Food - Great Wine list - Wait staff is very nice. I have been here for both dinner and Sunday brunch. I like their Sunday Brunch bec. they do not have alot of choices. The Roast Beef was excellent on the Sunday Brunch. The food is really very excellent.

  • Table 19, a bright alternative

    Dined on 6/10/2014
    Table 19 is a bright and energetic alternative to the dark and formal standard for business dinners in Peoria. The open airy decor and abundant windows with street views gives Table 19 a very comfortable and spacious feeling. The menu offers the standard steak and potatoes fair as well as innovative plates that could have come fresh from a central Illinois farm kitchen. On the three occasions I’ve entertained a group of customers at Table 19, the service has been prompt and courteous.

    Most people in my group had the T19 burger with fries, everyone said it was pretty good. The fries were good but nothing special, looked like basic frozen restaurant fries as did the sweet potato fries. I had the mixed green salad and my only complaint was it was really small. Just a small bunch of arugula and a few small peaches, it was notably smaller that the other salad ordered and the burgers. The service was great and they did a nice job accommodating our requests.

    Recommend the Brussels Sprouts or the Calamari appetizer. The deep fried pepperoncini peppers in the calamari were killer. Drinks menu was very creative, although a little overpriced. Noisy since the restaurant is connected to the lobby of the hotel. Great service. Guests can take their drinks to the hotel bar following dinner. Overall, the food was very good however, you can get similar/better quality gourmet food at other restaurants in the Peoria area for a lesser price.

    We chose to dine at Table19 to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were quite pleased with our evening's experience. As this was or first visit to this venue since its renovation we were anxious to explore. As Peoria natives we have been to the Pere' many times for various events so we approached this night with a bit of anticipation - hoping for the best, but prepared for something less. To say we were delighted from the moment we walked in is no exaggeration. Attention to detail is obvious from the moment you enter. The décor, is elegant yet comfortable and inviting, open yet intimate. We felt that we'd been transported from downtown Peoria to Chicago or Atlanta. Dinner was exceptional and reasonably priced. We'll be back!

    I took my family of four this week. The service was outstanding, although there were only three tables. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass. It was very good, however the portion size was tiny. It sat atop a fantastic mushroom risotto, of which there was more than enough. One of my daughters ordered a shrimp cocktail - 3 shrimp for $12.50, that's a bit steep... She ordered the ravioli and said it was delicious. My other daughter ordered the filet, it was cooked perfectly and very tasty. My wife had the ceaser salad and said it was outstanding. We had a couple of cocktails and bill was $178.00 - Not bad. Calamari app was also very good. Again, the service was fanastic.

    This dinner was for a special person on his birthday. He is sophisticated and discerning when it comes to restaurants, food and wine. We started with the cheese plate and it was well thought out and beautifully presented. He ordered a steak and said that it was as good as any he had ever had. This is high praise from a man who often dines well. They satisfied my request for a quiet, romantic table. They gave us attention but never intruded or rushed us. Well done Table 19! We will dine with you again.

    We actually ended up eating here for dinner and again for brunch as we stayed at the hotel as a surprise from me to my husband. Both time the service was terrible! It took 20 minutes to get a server to our table and another 25 to get the wine my husband requested. The server repeatedly told us she would be back then never showed back up and we had to stop the hostess to ask for her to send her to us. Then at brunch we waited at the omelet station for over 10 minutes for someone to come from the kitchen to make it, even having a server tell us she was sending him out. The New york strip and grilled butter nut squash was delicious however! No one would answer the phone prior to our time of arrival!

    Food was hit and miss, the entree was good with good flavor, but the salad was terrible as were the appetizers. The service was kind, but overworked and missing. Table 19 falls very short of the expectation they have given themselves as a fine dining experience. The atmosphere has potential, the menu does as well, but the delivery of the quality and service needs an overhaul.

    I had been to Table 19 once before w/ a big group and everything was great. The second time around the service was not very good but the food was still amazing. We got sat in a area all by ourselves that was very bright and where all the servers walk by, it was not very inviting. When my bf asked if we could move they said that is where we were slotted for online reservations. He said "there are about 4 tables up here". We were eventually moved to a nicer area in the actual restaurant. It then took about 15 min for someone to wait on us and only after asking if they knew who our server was. We also had to ask for our complimentary bread. We also ordered drinks and they were incorrect. However, when the food came it was very good.

    We recently dined at Table 19 and had one of the worst dining experiences that we have had in a while. We had dinner with another couple, and our combined bill was over $200.00, and unfortunately the food and service did not match the price we had to pay. We waited nearly an hour for our appetizer to arrive at our table. Two people at our table ordered steaks that were extremely undercooked. After sending them back to the kitchen, they came out still undercooked. Our server only checked with our table maybe 3 times throughout the entire 2 1/2-3 hours that were there. Of the four of us that ordered food, I was the only one that was satisfied with my meal, which consisted of the fried chicken and macaroni and cheese.

    The ambience of the restaurant is very nice, but the rest of the experience was just okay. The food was decent but none of us in our party had the "wow" factor. It was obvious the waitress needed to be trained more and she certainly was not ready to have a table on her own. Nice wine selection. I think the prices were a bit high considering the average food and the amount received. I may recommend this restaurant for a special occasion but many more come to mind before Table 19.

    We were pleasantly surprised. The cuisine was excellent! Most of what I ate I had never tried before. There was nothing that wasn't absolutely mouth watering. I have lived in the Peoria area all of my life and the steak I had was one of the best I have ever had. Cooked to perfection and seasoned with a bit of a kick. The Cobb Salad was like no other cobb salad I have had before. It was excellent and was a meal in itself. I have also traveled abroad and been fortunate to dine at some upscale restaurants. Table 19 was right up there with the best of them.

    Overall, our dinner experience was excellent. This is our second time here, and the food is always amazing. They specialize in 'farm to table' dining, meeting organic and local foods are on the menu. I ordered their steak with a special rub, and was not told until it came to the table that they were out. She said "With the bad weather, the chef is already gone for the night. Sorry." The reason I got the steak was their special rub. If they were out, I would have preferred that she return to the table and see if I would like to replace it with a different steak topping, or change my order completely. Refills were also slow from her. She was very pleasant, and perhaps she was just very busy. I would still recommend this restaurant to anyone

    I reserved a table for 6 of us to have dinner at Table 19 before we went to the Civic Center for a theater production on the evening of 1/7/14. We arrived at 5:15pm. We were pleasantly pleased when we walked into the restaurant. It's decorated tastefully, and we liked the appearance of the whole new lobby/restaurant area. Our waitress was Mindy. She was friendly and explained features of the menu. We had drinks, appetizers, and ordered a variety of entrees for our dinner meals. Everyone enjoyed their food and said it was good. I would recommend this new restaurant in downtown Peoria to anyone looking for an upscale place to dine. Do allow yourself adequate time (more than usual) to eat if you're going to an event at the Civic Center.

  • Christmas Lunch Brunch Buffet

    Dined on 12/25/2013
    Table 19 opened 6 months ago in a renovated landmark hotel. As we walked in the side entrance of the hotel, we found ourselves in the restaurant, without being aware of it, as the hotel lobby flows into the restaurant without boundaries. The decor is tastefully modern, well lighted with dark wood against cream colored walls. We wandered a bit before discovering the reception area. Once there, we were seated quickly, but this was likely due to the small number of guests in the hotel. At other times it is likely to be crowded and noisy. Our server was appropriately attentive, pleasant and professional. The buffet was was very limited compared to most Christmas Brunches, but we appreciated the simplicity and serenity.

    Ambience - the ultra modern (beautiful) needs to be toned down, warmed up somewhat ; very good service, but waitress needs to know more about wine if she is going to recommend ("this wine <white> really smells good"); food was super, 6 of us all had different choices, all were good to excellent...additionally, plating was super; prices reasonable.
