I travel a lot and visit a lot of restaurants. I had heard good reviews of Rhythm Kitchen in Peoria. I stopped in with two friends. I had the special of chicken and sausage gumbo, my friends had the tandoor chicken salad. My gumbo was excellent, my friends salads were ok. So how do I rate the restaurant? The atmosphere... More

Excellent chicken and sausage gumbo in a generous portion served in a low key place that started the waterfront revival. Shelley Lenzini and Chef Jason put our great food in a narrow, display kitchen restaurant nestled in the first floor of a restored warehouse district building. The decor is low key and welcoming, there is ample parking nearby and you... More

If you like creole dish, eclectic deco and groovy music, this is the place to go. Located right on the Peoria riverfront on the Water Street, it is very accessible, friendly and relaxing. Perfect to enjoy a few drinks and delicious southern dish and let your spirit dance lightly in this quintessential small town music cafe. The butterscotch pecan pie... More

ALWAYS an excellent job! The food isn't ur usual chain restaurant food, so if ur looking for something different, I highly reccomend the Rhythm Kitchen. We were there during Mardi Gras, so the menu was relating to New Orleans food. Not all things were spicy, and if you have any questions, the servers are more than willing to assist you... More

Food overall was alright. My black bean turkey burger was delicious. Unfortunately my wife's veggie wrap was not very great. She asked what was all in it and they listed everything and didn't mention mushrooms being apart of the dish. She said great because she didn't want mushrooms in it...well it came with mushrooms. Her rice dish was luke warm... More

Stopped for lunch on A Friday afternoon. Menu included soups and unique sandwiches like Salmon BLT, Cuban, and meatloaf. For Cajun/creole tastes, shrimp creole and gumbo were offered and they were good and spicy. Full bar also offered. Highly recommend, excellent dishes for all types of tastes!

We stopped in here for dinner before going to an event at the Peoria Civic Center and chose it based in its ranking and ratings on TripAdvisor. This place is quirky! It was busy due to it being a concert night. Almost all the tables in the main room were full. There are tables of various sizes squeezed into the... More

I'm always impressed by restaurants that manage to serve up food that's fresh and tasty in a clean, but low-key atmosphere. Rhythm Kitchen delivers on that promise well. I was told that it does get a lot of visitors on the weekend when they have music, but visiting during the middle of the week, it was really quiet. I had... More
