    Food is so very delicious. Cocktails are great with a nice variety. Ambiance is cozy and classy. The service here is phenomenal. The chef made me a vegetarian entre since none was on the menu, and it was so tasty, and he came out personally to check if I liked it. It's really just a wonderful dining experience.

    Hands down the best meal we've had in Peoria. I don't normally write a review unless it's a bad experience to warn people but...... 2Chezs inspired me from start to finish. I'll start by saying we've tried to dine here a couple times and reservations are always booked but recently realized that there is a community table so we tried last weekend but sadly people were waiting and rushing to get that table before the doors even opened people were lined up. We reserved a table for next weekend since we didn't get the table. Fast forward next weekend. It's a blizzard out and -3° out but we trucked it in to give it a try. Thr small restaurant was packed like the weather wasn't even an issue. Our reservation was for 7:30 but we arriveda little early thinkingthey may not be busy with the blizzard outside and temps steadily dropping. We were greeted by the co-owner and the chefs wife as we walked in, our table wasn't ready so we sat and waited at the bar. The ambience of the place was eclectic and effortlessly cool. Everything was perfect. Music was being played on an actual record player which I love and feel that music just sounds better on a record player. We were greeted by the chef/owner and talked with him for a bit and watched him flombay a bananas foster as his 2 sons bartended. The drinks are made with fresh ingredients like hand pressed ginger and freshly made syrups and lemonade. I had an aperol spritzer, my son had a peach lemonade and my husband had a whiskey mule. We were already impressed and loving the vibe and our drinks were delicious. We watched as they made smoked drinks and muddled fresh ginger. We also went and checked out the cool bathroom decor and played a game of I-spy with my son with the fun decorations. We finally get to our table and our the chef kindly gave us an appetizer for the wait. The bruschetta was perfectly seasoned and my husband who doesn't like raw tomatoes even tried and liked it. I was shocked! We ordered fries with tarragon aoli as well for an app and my son destroyed them and said it was the best aoili ever and wanted more!!! We ordered another round of drinks, the brubaker and a tart cherry mule. By the time we had eaten our appetizers we had already began to plan our next trip back to 2chez, it was that good! We had a hard time deciding what to get even though the menu is small.(which it should be) Everything sounded good! Living in Colorado we were spoiled by amazing restaurants and unfortunately majority of restaurants in Peoria that we have visited are just ok and the food is far from fresh or made from scratch and we find ourselves eating at home more because we're never really impressed. For dinner I had the scallops with lobster cream sauce and lyonaise potatoes, my husband had the filet with mashed potatoes and veggies and my son had the special of the night a veal tbone with a demiglaze and lyonaise potatoes. We were blown away by how perfectly cooked and seasoned everything was, not a drop of food was left on our plates. My son also had creme brulee for dessert. I highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back. The only complaint I have is that we waiting this long to finally eat here!

    This place is an absolute gem. You need to check it out. The vibe, atmosphere, and food are unmatched in the Peoria area. Records play tunes as you dine. The entire place is full of charm, including the bathrooms. The riesling, and chicken Florentine were phenomenal.

    A locally owned small business in Peoria. A good selection of wine and Italian food. Their bread was hot and the butter was really good. The fried calamari is a nice shareable portion. I got the duck (which was a tad bit chewy for my taste). The scallops were really good. Overall a decent place but pricey.

    This is one of my favorite places in Peoria. The steak tips in blue cheese cream sauce is to die for. Some of my favorite pasta I’ve ever had! Steak is cooked to perfection. Their drinks are excellent. Highly recommend the soup of the day too.
