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.

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.

Atmosphere, food, seating was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!
You could not beat the price and you were full when you left.
Waiters & Waitresses were very nice & attentive. Salad bar/ Pizza great idea
I tell everyone they should go, best place for lunch, easy to get to, plenty of parking.
I can not say enough how wonderful of a place Two-Twenty Five is.

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!

We decided to try some place different for our Anniversary and I am so glad we did. It was a quiet Monday evening, but everything was fantastic. I had the Filet with fromage and it was cooked masterfully. My wife had shrimp scampi and we both enjoyed. I had a few cocktails, both tasty and potent. The service was wonderful and we felt very welcome. We will definitely return.

The food was mediocre and over priced for what was served. Soggy, watered down salad, shrimp cocktail tasted like frozen shrimp from jewel for $16, and although the filet was cooked perfectly it literally had no flavor and was served with kind of soggy green beans. Nice ambiance and waiter was nice but quality just not there with the food.

We had a wonderful time again. It was a little loud where we were seated due to live music, but we could still hear each other's conversations. Our waiter was not overly attentive, but I didn't notice until it was time to leave. We did not need anything so it was fine that he left us alone to enjoy our company. Someone was always around to fill our water glasses and that was most important. The food was prepared just as we asked and it was very tasty! I love the atmosphere and the decor of the building.

Food and service was excellent! One of the very best salmon dinners I’ve ever had. Wife had a curry something that she thoroughly enjoyed...the meals were served quickly and very attractively. There was, however what I think was a blues band playing an they were way to loud for my liking. The hostess, at her suggestion, placed us as far away from the band as possible. I appreciated her doing that. Our dinner at Two25 was a pleasant experience and I would expect when we are back in Peoria we’ll eat there again.

The food is always very good at Two25. I also like the atmosphere of the bar and main dining room. But I can't understand why they seat people who make reservations in the front booths near the street. This is the second time I've had reservations and been seated there. The first time I requested to be moved to the main dining room. This time I stayed. The dining area near the street has only booth seating, no table cloths and is dark after the sun goes down. The main dining room offers a much nicer atmosphere with white linen, better lighting and, I feel, better service. Our waiter seemed hurried and inefficient. We had a table of 4. He carried the food to us piecemeal from the other room/foyer. If the waiter can't bring a tray with all of the food (even salads were brought two at a time), then it would be nice if two wait or bus staff people could help the waiter deliver the food. The food was excellent! Because of the food and my intention to request a table in the main dining room next time, I will go back.

Great experience the servers complimented my date made her feel amazing and comfortable servers also allowed us to order off the menu and the food was purely authentic. The price matches the experience well worth it and we will come back. The best part is the fact you can see a lot of people but at the same time my date and I felt like it was just us because of how quiet it was for how busy the place seemed. Great experience.
