We went in thinking Tapas and it's so not Tapas... it's just small plates to share... or not. Delicious dining experience! Great cocktails.

Loved this place for their vegetarian options. We had a great time and not to mention, excellent service. Tried the Peruvian Margarita too and it turned to be awesome.

Located right on State street, this is another cozy establishment with a little attitude in Rockford. Solid and many unique options at the bar and on the dining menu. The menu is diverse enough to afford most anyone something they would like. Good job!
