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, 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.

We look forward to serving you.

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.

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.

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.

When we walked in, the hostess and some guy from the kitchen were standing there on their phones. Our waiter was not very good. When my wife asked what salad dressings were available, he said "all the standard ones.". It wasn't until she looked confused that he went through the list. When I asked questions about the draft beer list, he said "it's a new one today and I haven't looked at it." After the food arrived, he hardly ever checked back with us and I had to ask several other people to get our water refilled. Doubt we will be back. For that money, I would expect more.

We ordered a thin crust pizza and received a pan pizza. We weren’t immediately sure if it was a very thick thin crust so we politely ate with our friends until the waitress returned. She offered to replace it but by then we had consumed half of it and did not want to wait for another. She did offer free dessert but we would have enjoyed the thin crust much more than the thicker crust. Disappointed in the place we like to eat for special occasions.

When we made our reservation online, it asked if if it was for a special occasion. I entered anniversary. I'm not sure why they asked the question because our anniversary wasn't mentioned by anyone in your staff. We found that peculiar. I ordered the Filet mignon, medium. When I went to cut into it, i could barely get my knife through it. It was completely burnt black. The steak was grainy & stringy, unlike any filet I've had. It was so salty I couldn't eat it. I would have told the waiter but he didn't ask. So we traded dinners & I ate the lamb instead. We didn't have a good experience for our anniversary dinner, but good thing the hotel was nice.

Even though we had made reservations a week before on OpenTable, they tried sticking six of us in a four-person booth. After talking with the hostess several times they continued to tell us there was nothing they could do. Finally a manager came out and got us a table for six. In the room they put us in, there were several open tables that were never used while we were there so there should’ve never been a problem with moving us in the first place. They then continually got our wine incorrect and kept trying to either give us more expensive bottles than we ordered or charging us on the bill for bottles more expensive than they actually gave us. So you definitely have to watch that! Bait & switch was the laughing theme for the night b/t our friends.
The food was good but definitely not the best in the area. Head to Jim’s steakhouse for a better steak.

Food. Excellent as always! Service was a “little off” from what we’re used to here. We have become accustomed to excellent service here. Our server kind of disappeared toward the end of the meal. Last round of drink ordered never came, no ask for dessert, etc. Nothing broken, but this is really one of two places in town we frequent, and we come for the food AND the service.

Nice place but overpriced.
Cheap decor. It was Valentine’s Day and you would have thought that there’d be flowers on the tables, but nope. Very noisy.
Food portions a little small . Bland salad.
Most annoying part, the damn kid that kept constantly coming to the table asking if we wanted ground pepper on everything. One no should of been enough for him to take a clue but nope.
Overall there are better places to try in Peoria

Two25 is just too pricey for our comfort- $130 for two people eating two steak dinners and one appetizer is just too much for this place. Not even being dramatic, we waited 15 minutes for someone to greet us at our table and get the service started. Filet mignon was of good quality, however the New York strip was incredibly over cooked. The “garlic mashed potatoes” did not taste like actual potatoes at all. Unfortunately this restaurant just had too many negatives for us to return in the future.

It had been several years since I had been to Two25 but based on our dinner on Valentine's Day evening, we'll be back! Service was prompt and efficient and the food was memorable. My husband had the Steak at Poivre (on special that night) and I had the Maine Diver Scallops. Everything on both of our plates was delicious!
