Very unique menu and expereince

This place has a very unique menu, lots of choices not found on a chain restaurant menu. Servers are very good and service was fast. Has a hippie/modern feel.

The food here is absolutely amazing! The chef should be complimented. It's a great place for lunch during the week or for a cocktail and wifi in the evening. I'm happy to see a successful venue on Rockford's west side.

Over the years I've come to rely on Octane for excellent food, good ingredients, and a reasonable price. Octane becomes a habit if you're in the habit of eating quality, healthy food on a regular basis. Plus, the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I really like the place so much to try it again! Got the burrito and it was super delicious my husband got a hamburger and it was exquisite and it's because of the meat, so fresh and tastefully. We got the chocolate nachos to share, they were different and really good :)

My boyfriend and I went here last month and loved the service and food. We came back this month and overall still had a good experience, but the service wasn't quite as good. They sat us at a table and it took over 5 minutes to get menus. They do have amazing potato wedges and I love their coffee. They... More

Excellent food and service. Parents, don't let the fact that this place does not have a "children's" menu scare you away. I came here with 4 kids and they all loved their meals. The restaurant is able to make many of the menu items kid friendly.. The staff is very accommodating and able to help you navigate through the menu.... More

We hadn't eaten at Octane for a couple of years, but enjoyed the seafood specials. There's good wines and coffee drinks. It's a small place, but the creative menu keeps drawing crowds.

I was introduced to this fabulous, downtown centrally located restaurant by a group of friends. That being said I definitely recommend Octane as a gathering place where you can relax have fun in it's casual warm ambient. In the summer they have tables out in front. Normally I do not eat Mac-n-Cheese even if you put chicken in it but... More
