Best Dinner Date


“At Connected you’re always treated like you know someone… someone very important.” It’s a promise that restaurateur Troy Ummel takes very seriously. Since opening its doors in 2009, Connected has gained a well-deserved reputation as one of Peoria’s top spots for a night out with your sweetheart.

From the 30-foot-tall waterfall to the baby grand piano on the balcony, it offers an intimate dining experience, with friendly staff that are always seeking ways to enhance your evening. And the food—seafood, veal and steaks, classic Italian pastas and more—is to die for! It’s no wonder Connected was honored as one of the Distinguished Restaurants of North America—the continent’s premier recognition of fine dining excellence.
