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

Paul is the owner chef and he keeps the menu fresh and exciting. I have never had a bad meal here in the many years they have been open. You can eat on the patio when the weather cooperates. Get the duck nachos!

Our 20 something kids suggested this place as a tapas place they had been wanting to try. From the outside it doesn't look like much. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! Our server, Christina was a gem and pro. The food was amazing. Yellowfin tuna $14, morels $5, short ribs $16, soft shell crabs $17, sea trout $14, Asparagus Gazpacho $11,... More

We returned to Abreo for Mother's Day and feasted on the incredible Scallops with Carrot and Mango Purée as a starter. We enjoyed the roast lamb, homemade pasta with morels and ramps, and the halibut was the best I've ever eaten. We split a delicate orange cake with raspberry sherbet and vanilla cream for dessert. Perfect!

We went to Abreo last week for dinner and really enjoyed the food. They have small plates, enough to share with your guest. But you will need a few to get satisfied. Very friendly staff to explain the dishes and drink specials that can add more value to the experience. Not as fancy as Social a few doors down but... More
