We have been visiting Octane for several years and have enjoyed our selections. We have sampled a wide variety of the menu and its nice to see the menu change over the years with new additions. The Saturday brunch is yummy and the service is generally spot on. Thumbs up!

Great little restaurant only two blocks from the Coronado theater and the BMO Center so a perfect location to get a creative tasty meal before a concert or sports event. Their flank steak and chocolate nachos are my go to choices. Sean at the door and Josh at the table make sure you have a great experience and are on... More

Great atmosphere minus the hair salon in the middle of the restaurant. Besides that the food and service was fantastic. I had the blue cheese burger. There was no skimping on the blue cheese and garlic chips. Everyone at the table was happy with their selections. I followed my lunch with a turtle mocha, as a coffee lover this hit... More

Before a Rockford Ice Hogs hockey game we had 2 hours to kill and were hungry. We walked around and came across this little storefront establishment. And we're so glad we did! The only drawback is the seating capacity fills up quick! The food and service is great! The prices are very reasonable. We both had the chicken curry soup... More

My friends and I eat here monthly. They have a seasonal, unique menu and I've never had anything I didn't love. Definitely recommended.

This place has been around for a while. It's always been a decent place to grab some food. They have amazing bloody Mary's and the food is decent. The staff is rude and pushy with massive attitude problems. The area above the entry way is disgusting, see my picture for details.

Hello Ryan, Please forgive us for the inconvenience we had caused, you may have very well caught us on our bad night/day just like any business we are prone to one of those.I assure you my staff is generally well behaved at their respective tables and would never be brash or aggressive towards our guests. I hope we can make... More

We've been to Octane several times, it's one of our favorite places in town. I haven't be disappointed by a meal, and the Ridgerunnner Quesadilla and Hawaii 5-0 Burrito are a couple of our go to items to order. Their Saturday brunch is amazing - awesome to take visiting friends to! But what really nudged me to write a review... More

This place has a very unique menu, lots of choices not found on a chain restaurant menu. Servers are very good and service was fast. Has a hippie/modern feel.
