Great atmosphere, live jazz playing. Drinks were ice cold. Courses were delicious and quick to the table. Steak was perfectly medium. Donna provided excellent service. If you are in Peoria, I highly recommend.

Two25 provides a unique experience in Peoria dining. The food is clearly ingredient driven and consideration is given to how it's sourced. The restaurant layout provides big city, upscale atmosphere. One of the best local dining experiences.

Despite having a reservation we had to wait while they opened a room behind the bar away from the atmosphere of the restaurant. The food was good until my daughter found several hairs in her mashed potatoes. They did take her meal off the bill. We were there to celebrate my wife’s birthday and it turned out to be a bad experience.

The food was good, but not great. The service was acceptable, but nothing special. The particularly disappointing part of this dining experience was that, although we'd made a reservation weeks in advance and arrived 10 minutes before our reservation time, we were seated in an overflow room that was lit like a cafeteria. As this was a Valentine's Day dinner, needless to say that this was not exactly the atmosphere we were looking for.

Made reservations for Valentine’s Day, and got a confirmation email. Then a few days before the date, I got a call from the restaurant confirming I would be there at my reserved time, and I told them yes. I got there right on time and they told me that they wouldn’t have table ready for 20 minutes. If I hadn’t made a reservation, this would have been fine. But whats the point in letting people reserve tables (and confirming with them) if you don’t have a table ready for them when they arrive? Other than this, everything was OK. Food was ok, service was ok, atmosphere was ok. Considering all of these “ok”s, it is NOT worth the price. I generously gave it a 3 star rating. Would bump it down to a 2.5 if it was possible.

We have visited Two25 on multiple occasions, and were looking forward to having our Valentine’s Day dinner there. Our food was not the best we have ever had though. One steak was over cooked; which they did fix. Unfortunately, it then came out undercooked. At that point we just ate it. Our other steak was one of the smallest cuts we have ever been served. It was supposed to be 20 ounces, but we are almost certain it wasn’t. Overall, our experience and service were still good, but we were disappointed with our overall main dish.

The wine list and beer selection continues to lag significantly behind the food quality.
There are so many good wines that to have a list such as theirs is really a problem.

We went New Year’s Eve The seating in the middle is more cozy and romantic but we were fine toward the back too. Service was fine although it took a little while to get started. While it’s not inexpensive every meal the four of us had was well worth it. New York strip was fantastic and I know the two pasta dishes in our group were too. 225 is a place that my wife and I kind of forget about when searching for fine dining. The last time there was a New Year’s Eve a few years back
Again the food was excellent

Two25 is a favorite for us. Instead of the usual bottle of wine several diners went with cocktails- everyone was pleased. Some in our party went with their usual-wouldn’t order anything else -filets. The filets are tender, tasty and I understand why they enjoy it so much. It is also a value for the price. The other entrees at the table included salmon (another hit) - but tonight’s winner was the shrimp scampi. It was superb, not too garlicky or buttery, serving size was perfect. Sorry I’ve overlooked it in the past-I have so many other favorites I usually go to, it will not be overlooked in the future. The special treat Brandy Alexander was a great finish. Thanks to Gary for perfect service.

We like that we can get dressed up and go for a special occasion, or just drop by in jeans. The staff is always very knowledgeable, and never make us feel rushed. It's always a great time at two25.

Great food, the filet was outstanding, the scalloped potatoes were excellent too. Service was great, maybe a little too fast if you want to talk a lot. For the appetizer we had the calamari, very tender and tasty. We had no room left for dessert, unfortunately. Great experience all together. Highly recommended.

The food was great we got in right in our reservation time and got our food pretty quick. The food was good for the most part. We got our food and ate all in 45 minutes. Which was great because it was our anniversary and we had other plans. A lady came by and collected our dishes even though she was not our server. When she collected the plates we asked for our bill. She said no problem and went on her way. 20 minutes went by and no sign of our server and the bill. It was like we were forgotten about. We then flagged a different girl down and asked again for our bill and she informed us that our server was on his way. Needless to say that’s not how we pictured our anniversary. Our server was so quick and in and out that we didn’t even have a chance to tell him it was our anniversary.
