Great place for lunch!

If you like something other than the usual fare, then this is the place to go. It is locally owned and a favorite place for me to go for lunch in Rockford. The prices are reasonable. They have the most amazing bread that everyone gets to try and I just love their soups. It is tucked away off... read more

Five Forks has some delicious tapas dishes. We've tried a number of the small plates- the goat cheese one is my favorite. Their cumin chicken medium plate is wonderfully seasoned and my husband loved the lamb and the fish medium plates. their creme brulee is to die for! super yummy! great wine selection too. A little pricey though, so we... More

I've edited my original review since posting because the restaurant's owner reached out to me. First, the original: I stopped in for Five Forks for a snack in mid-April 2015. First, this is a tapas restaurant (and the portions are actually tapas sized). The two tapas that I had were delicious, although they were about 25% overpriced (I'd expect these... More

Flat bread bruschetta was a knockout. Turkey-cranberry panini was excellent. Good wine selection and reasonable prices. All of this good news was outdone by the service. This is a gem...wish we lived closer.

The food was awlful. I ordered a macaroni dish and it was filled with half water and my husband had a steak dish that looked proportional for a two year old. Also he said his food was bland at that. I had heard great reviews and I was very disappointed as this was a special day.

Great place!!! On the recommendation of my hotel, I stopped in for dinner. Tapas and wine. Both were absolutely delicious!!!!!!!! The portions were MUCH bigger than I expected but I do recommend the Parmesan crusted artichoke hearts. No need to pay more, their house wine was perfect. Wish I lived closer this would be a great spot to meet a... More

Five Forks is becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Rockford. It is a smaller venue in kind of a quirky location but I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Quasi tapas style with smaller plates, but certainly enough for a meal. We have tried most everything on the menu and have not been disappointed yet. It's an open kitchen... More

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
