We had a great dinner and the best waitress ever. She was attentive but not in our face. Some waiters are so attentive that it is distractive. Our back waiter was great too. We had a wonderful experience. We both had the filet medallions, and they were delicious. Cooked to perfection. We were a few minutes late due to the St Jude run , but the hostess was ever so gracious. Thanks for making my daughter's 50th bday dinner so special.

We have been several times and know what to expect. We ate a little earlier this time due to a scheduled event after dinner and as we had an early reservation, we got the impression that the restaurant wasn't quite ready for dinner. Had a shift change prior to the "dinner crowd" and that might have been the reason.

The food was excellent, however the service was not at all. We waited for 45 min for our food to get boxed and order after dinner drinks, my husband then had to go up to the bar and get our drinks himself since they were sitting for over 7 min. We were not offered anything else just a check dropped off to the table that another server cashed out for us. We then asked to speak to the manager whom was sitting at a table with other guests, and he offered no sincere apology leaving us feeling that he didn't really care either. This was our first time there and it was not a good experience.

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.

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.
