We wanted to have relatives and a few friends for a celebration luncheon. The separate room at Five Forks provided just the place to do this. Betsy, in charge of catering, was wonderful in suggesting a menu, working out details, and implementing what we had planned. The food was outstanding, the service was wonderful, and everyone had a wonderful time.... More

This is my go to place whenever I have had family visiting. Five Forks has not disappointed us yet. The food is outstanding and I have always had excellent service. There is wide variety in the wine selection.I like the idea of picking out a bottle of wine and they only charge to uncork it. I think it is one... More

An excellent welcome for visitors from across the pond. Always a good start! There is a wide selection of reasonably priced wine, generally at off license prices. We were recommended 3 different bottles of red throughout dinner and enjoyed them all. This restaurant lends itself to sharing. So depending on numbers an average of 2 to 3 dishes per person....

Wonderful, local restaurant experience in a sea of chain restaurants. The menu is original and gourmet but not stuffy. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The wine list is definitely impressive as is the wine shop located inside the restaurant. The bar offers many fine spirits from gin to bourbon and the bartenders know exactly what to do with them!...

Great atmosphere, nice upscale bistro. Expensive, about what I would pay for dinner, including drinks.

Stumbled on this place from TA; reading in the car on the road back to Chicago from Galena. Couldn't have been more pleased with the food. It is oddly tucked into a strip mall, but right on US 20 and a stone's throw from the expressway; well worth the little time it took to get off course! Great wine and... More

Wonderfully creative menu. Fresh ingredients, consistently well prepared and presented. Service is excellent. Try the bacon wrapped dates for sure. Soups are always excellent. Lunch has flat breads, sandwiches and salads. Dinner is tapas.
