Abreo has been my favorite restaurant in Rockford for a number of years. The food is classy and creative, without being pretentious. I like the small plate genre for this place because there are always so many things I need to try. Also, you can't beat the ambiance: the main dining room, the cellar, and of course, the PATIO all...

We were in Rockford (from Chicago) to see a concert at the nearby Coronado theater and found Abreo via a search for nearby restaurants. Our group of four were all very happy with the choice. A very creative drink menu and unique food selections made the meal fun and enjoyable. The chef suggests three menu items which works great to... More
