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

We have been here several times for dinner. Service is always very good. This evening we had the chef's feature dishes which included homemade sausage with wild boar. The only thing I would they could improve on is the lighting, it is very dark, no candles on the tables.

Food was excellent. Service was ok.. Funny place regarding beer selection. Somewhat limited. One guest finally found a beer he wanted, but it was served warm. They were good about it, and tried to make it right. Everything else was very good. I'll go back.

This was our second visit to Connected. We love the food and atmosphere. Listening to Frank Sinatra never gets old. The staff is very attentive, and the food is outstanding. My wife had the veal with morel mushrooms, and I had pasta with wild boar sausage. Our entrees were very much to our liking. The red sauce with pasta may... More
