A cut above the average restaurant with unique tapas dishes. Try the artichoke hearts and melted cheese dish for something healthy and fresh. You are not rushed. Cozy atmosphere.

Was recently in Rockford and wanted something different outside of the chain restaurants that litter the main roads. I gave Five Forks a try and was very happy with the selection of healthy options on their menu (I much rather eat a sandwich with fresh ingredients instead of having my food mass-produced and re-heated per order), and their service was...

Very nice bites offerings a meal with a lot of variability: mix and match meat, fish and vegetables. Interesting liquor and wine offering, so definitely worth the detour.

When we were here a few years ago, it was rated number one on Tripadvisor. It's still very good, but it didn't "wow" us like the first time. The biggest difference was the service. During visit number one the server couldn't do enough for us - friendly, made suggestions, described the dishes, kept checking to see how we liked the... More

The Apple Brie bacon sandwich on chibatta bread, bacon wrapped dates with honey sauce, and fresh hot rosemary buns never fail to delight! Wait staff very professional. Very enjoyable for an adult meal.

I have been here a few times and the food is okay if you're looking for tapas. I do not understand the corking fee for a bottle of wine purchased in the restaurant. i beleive the only time a corking fee is acceptable is in a BYOB restaurnat. I hate being nickled and dimed by any business.

Thank you for visiting our restaurant - we very much appreciate your business! I would also like to thank you for giving me a chance to explain our corkage fee. Have you ever been to a restaurant and purchased a bottle of wine that you know you have seen in a grocery store for about half the price? For example,... More

The tapas menu and extensive wine selection are all very good, we've visited 4 or 5 times over the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is nice enough to help you forget you pulled into a small strip mall, but casual enough to avoid a pretentious feeling. We typically use it as a date-night restaurant,... More

We'll come back for wine and tapas sometime in this smart-looking interior! We visited at lunch, and all enjoyed our panini sandwiches and soups. Our server David was friendly and helpful, and kept our water glasses full.
