Looking for new restaurants to try out for date night? Whether you want a romantic candlelit dinner or a casual + fun atmosphere, try one of these five restaurants in Peoria.

Jim’s Bistro   //   If you love steak, then this is the place for you! Jim’s Bistro offers an unforgettable fine dining experience with a selection of fine, dry-aged steaks cut in-house. It also offers seafood, pasta, salads, and more for those that aren’t a big fan of steak.

Fish House   //   If seafood shipped in from all over the world isn’t enough to convince you to eat at the Fish House, then I don’t know what will! The Fish House has been a staple in Peoria for over 40 years, and has always served the freshest seafood dishes that have been flown in from Chile, Hawaii, Canada and more! Its dimly lit and intimate space is perfect for a romantic evening full of good food and fine wines.

Thanh Linh   //   Known for its big portions and authentic Vietnamese cuisine, Thanh Linh is perfect for date night! It’s relatively cheap compared to the other restaurants we recommended and you will definitely get your money’s worth in terms of portion sizes. Its Pad Thai and Lemongrass Chicken are a couple of our favorite dishes, and the portion is so huge that it’s easy to share with your date!

Cyd’s In The Park   //   Cyd’s in the Park offers a unique and memorable experience with its beautifully lit patio and delicious food! It’s perfect if you’re looking for a more casual and laid-back spot that is still intimate and romantic. Cyd’s host live music on the weekends and even offer a bonfire at nighttime for a cozy and relaxing experience. Be sure to try the pretzel bites with kimchi pimento cheese and crudité as it’s one of our favorite items on the menu!

Osaka Hibachi & Sushi Bar   //   Located in the Shoppes at Grand PrairieOsaka’s Hibachi experience is a unique and fun experience, where your meal is cooked right in front of you by chefs who enjoy showing off their knife skills and maneuvers.
