Small quiet establishment with great food and great service. Portions are small, but that is the point! Fun to order a variety of items and share with the group. Don't skip the bacon wrapped dates - they are to die for. Never dissatified with a meal there. Comfortable enough to sit at the bar and enjoy a glass of wine... More

We were looking for some new and inventive flavors for a weekend lunch and we're delighted with what we found at here. Our server had in depth knowledge of the menu and was confident to make suggestions, always a plus in my book. Specials were adventurous and the one I chose truly delivered. While waiting for your food you can... More

After a busy day our family did the due diligence and researched e best restaurants in Rockford and in the top 10 was this gem called Five Forks. There was only four of us so we only had four happy forks bringing the delicious food into our mouths. This is a small restaurant so be sure to call for reservations...Hippie... More

Favorite restaurant in town! Food and service are always excellent. Interesting menu, and great approach to wine and cocktails. We love to come here for special occasions, or pop in for wine and tapas after a movie.

I found this restaurant on TA and was pleasantly surprised by how good it really is, food was delicious. I had the tomato soup and the apple, bacon, brie and cranberry panini, along with chips. Every bite was so good! I could have licked the soup bowl. We were there for lunch, menu had several choices. It looked like they... More

You are welcomed at the entrance by a wall of wine broken down into 3 price points for easy decisions. The restaurant is small and intimate, very modern. Wine and liquor list is a 10, bourbon list was impressive. Food was also a 10, we started with bacon wrapped dates and risotto both excellent. For entrées we tried flat iron... More

Stopped in for lunch before touring local attractions. Small but thoughtful menu with many alcoholic beverage options. We sampled the spinach salad, bacon wrapped figs and the cheeseboard. Everything was excellent. There were also 4 other creative salads, paninis, and flatbreads. For dessert we sampled the creme brûlée which was creamy and was served with the perfect crusted sugar top.... More

This restaurant is amazingly good. Chef Kyle is simply a genius! The menu is full of mind-bogglingly delicious tapas and larger dishes. He creates two soups every day, which display his talents in simple, fresh, full of flavor, perfectly seasoned awesomeness. Weekly specials are outstanding. He whips together a variety of flavors, from Mexican cuisine, classic French, Creole, Spanish and... More

Fresh garden vegetables prepared into delicious food. Brussel sprouts appetizer and spicy chicken and black bean soup were out of this world. A little too heavy-handed with the oil on the McKenna brat flat bread. Small, but comfortable atmosphere. Over server David was very efficient. There is construction going on out front. The whole parking lot is ripped-up, but the... More
