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...

Abreo is worth the drive.........I live over an hour away and the dinner was worth every mile! Restaurant is over 10 years old and the owner knows what he is doing as he also runs Social which is next door and another 5star trip advisor venue. Specialize in locavore food and providers and small plates to share. The interior is... More

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
