The restaurant Connected in Peoria is not to be missed ... great ambiance, wait staff, cuisine that will be mémorable always. The soups are sublime. I had the chicken Marsala which was the best I've ever eaten anywhere. Great selection of wines. Huge dining area but even when full, you can carry on a subdued conversation. Can't wait to return.

Let me start by saying that if you haven't been here yet, you already have missed out. The service is top notch (black tie) and very attentive. My wife had the lamb chops and I had the veal with morell mushrooms. No disappointments. And make sure to send the night with lemonchello and a dessert. Again, you won't be disappointed.... More

Friends treated me to a birthday dinner. The number of diners changed several times. The restaurant handled the changes with no problem, eve at the last minute. Service is excellent at Connected. The lemon martini specialty was a great beginning. There is a diverse menu. I had a veal dish. The meat was tender and the marsala sauce was one... More

My husband and I went for our anniversary and we are so glad we did. Our evening was perfect. We had the calamari appetizer which was very good. Our salads were good as well. My husband enjoyed a veal dish and I had the cheese ravioli. The pasta was fresh and had the perfect amount of spice. My husband enjoyed... More

A completely delightful experience. Service, ambiance, and food all hit high marks. We were given a choice of tables on our arrival. The dining room is a two story, well executed recreation of an evening street scene with comfortable seating, attractively set tables, subtle background music, pleasant lighting ,and acoustics that allow comfortable conversation. The full service staff from the... More

Waited way too long to be seated with the place not being busy at all. More time before getting a menu and some more for my order. I was alone so it's not like conversation would be interrupted by them coming to the table. The food was delicious so if you have time then this is a good place to... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us several times. The atmosphere is very lovely. Service was impressive. We started off with the Shrimp Cocktail, but were surprised that there were only 3 shrimp for 15.50. The shrimp cocktail sauce was overloaded with fresh horseradish. Next was their "Famous Caesar Salad". I had salmon on top of augratin potatoes covered with... More

I have had many business dinners here and the reason is simple. The food and service are high quality. The menu does not change or if so, very irregularly, but the fare is consistently excellent. I enjoy the "Sinatra-esque" ambiance.

We had the seabass which was excellent, it was served on a bed of shrimp risotto. Great choice, but not cheap. We had the sauteed shrimp as a starter, also very good. It is very dark in this restaurant but thanks to our i-phone torch we managed to read the menu. The service was very good but a little overdone,... More
