Had a group of 6 people for dinner so a lot of different items were selected for consumption. The food was great, nice selection of wines on the wall to go with everything. Service was quite good. Enjoyed the meal and evening.

Only giving this 4 stars because of a few of things that got under my skin. First, I love your Crab Cakes. Why do they keep getting smaller and smaller? I'm aware you are a Tapas place but they are much smaller than they used to be. Perhaps you could over a larger version for a little more as an... More

My husband and I love this restaurant. Five Forks has a unique and fresh menu, and a great wine selection. The place is small and cozy, and somewhat hidden in a small strip mall, but worth the effort to find. We usually get a couple different plates to share, and are never disappointed! If you are looking for a different... More

So much too say. Eating here always brought me my senses back to NYC. Yea I know, its Rockford..trust me I get it..I'm a NYer. Food and service is great! I usually get the cheese plate b/c WI is nearby, so why not? Their portions are reasonable and always make you wanting more! If anything I'll miss from this 16... More

We went for dinner and I had the beef and bleu, and it was cooked perfectly. We ate at the kitchen bar, and it was warm there on a cold night. Hard to find a place that cooks your steak exactly how you like it, and the chef did it to perfection. We had crab cake appetizers, and they were... More

Amazing food, great atmosphere. Love this place. The roasted brussel sprouts are wonderful and the fried olives were so good, have never thought about olives for an appetizer. Wonderful place will definately come back.

Went on a Tuesday night for casual dinner with a friend. The service was really great. Interesting menu choices. Try the deep fried mashed potatoes and the Brussel sprouts, I hate Brussel sprouts. These were delicious! The pork with bread dumplings was also very good. The coffee, actually tasted like coffee, better than I have had a 'breakfast restaurants'. Leave... More

Our party of eight had a wonderful meal at Five Forks on October 22. Most enjoyed their dinners and wine as the service was good overall. However, as we sat following dessert and coffee, our server approached the table as she gave us our checks. You could see she was embarrassed to tell us that the place had overbooked and... More

Wow! WOw! WOW!!!! Im impressed - and that doesn't happen easily. A nice GSM red blend with fruity nose and peppery finish. That's an ideal start for me. At first, I was disappointed in the lunch menu - much, much smaller than the (dinner) menu on the Yelp app. But.....The roasted red pepper soup is delish - the black beans... More
