Excellent dining. The beer selection was high quality and the food was delicious. The use of the brewery's own beers in many of the dishes made the menu offerings unique. We will definitely plan to visit again. More

Contemporary American | Peoria/East Peoria, Central Illinois

I surprised my wife with a reservation here on the day before Valentine's Day (we were not available on Feb 14th). She had never heard of Edge; I'd read about it in the local paper. To be honest, I'd never spent this much money on one meal (I'm more of a home-cooking sort of guy), and this is not something I would do often, BUT, I have NO regrets about the evening....it was truly spectacular. Our server, Tamara, was excellent...friendly, knowledgeable, and aware of our every need. We both had the Beet and Arugula salad; I had the Atlantic Salmon, my wife had the Duroc Pork Chop. Both were delicious. The fresh sourdough bread was great to start, and it all paired well with the bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine I selected. When we finished, we both ordered and loved the toasted chocolate coffee dessert. I'm a musician, and I VERY MUCH enjoyed the "warm jazz" selections that filled the space without being so loud as to hinder conversation. One more thing; neither my wife nor I like garlic...if we can smell it or taste it, it ruins our meal. I was concerned, because most "chefs" can't seem to cook anything without loading it with garlic (watch the FOOD Network if you don't believe me)...but we didn't notice ANY garlic in ANY of our choices....what a WONDERFULLY PLEASANT surprise! I'd asked about that via the "CONTACT US" button on their web site, but apparently no one monitors that, because I sent the question 3 times over 3 weeks and never got an answer. In conclusion, this was the PERFECT place for a romantic evening. I can't think of ONE thing that would have made it better! THANKS to Chef Allen and his staff for a night to remember fondly! More

The food was great and the service was also great, however it was rather expensive. I have been to several tapas places in much bigger cities and they don't charge as much. More

Contemporary Asian | Peoria/East Peoria, Central Illinois

This was my boyfriend and I's first time being here and we were so nervous, but we wanted to experience something new. This was definitely something new. Our waiter was awesome I wish I could remember her name (it was 3 days ago), she explained the process very well and offered the best drinks. She made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. I really did not know what I was throwing in my bowl or how it was going to turn out, but the food turned out great. I will def come back. More

Indian | Peoria/East Peoria, Central Illinois

Indian cuisine is as diverse as its people and geography. Over the centuries, each new wave of settlers brought with them their own culinary practice which, with time, blended into the India Cuisine as it is known today. Most Indian cuisines are related by significant usage of spices, such as cumin, mustard seeds, turmeric, fenugreek, coriander, red chilli powder and asafoetida. Another very important spice is the "garam masala" which is usually a powder of five or more dried spices. Here at Ruchi, we bring you a blend of traditional methods and modern techniques to serve you the finest Authentic Indian Cuisine.More
