Our favorite dining spot n Rockford. We have traveled extensively, and can compare the food quality to anywhere in Europe or the US. The owner and his wife have this dialed in perfectly for our tastes. The small portion menu, and wine pairings are really good, and service is always tops.

On a nice summer, or fall evening, the patio will take you to a place reminiscent of old Barcelona, or Italy. The atmosphere inside is edgy, but still warm, with the view out the front window of old State St. pedestrian traffic.

The owner Paul, and staff have truly raised the bar for service, atmosphere, and moreover high quality fresh food and drink.

Quite unique. The food is fabulous. Try sitting on the patio if the weather is nice. You'll swear you're in the big city.

This place was simply amazing! The atmosphere had a cool Tim Burton vibe to it, very cool. The food was simply out of this world. All the tapas inspired dishes my gf and I got were sensational, everything was perfect ranging from filet to mushrooms. It was all perfect. The wine list was excellent and we had a bottle of Zin w/ dinner. I couldn't recommend Abreo more!!!

We stopped by this restaurant on a Tuesday night driving from the Rockford airport to Madison and were VERY pleasantly surprised by the excellent food which was tastefully presented. Abreo serves small plates which allows you to try more than one thing. The server was very pleasant. The choices were extensive and the food very fresh. The decor was comfortable and eye-catching.

We love Abreo. It's a little surprising to find a restaurant of Abreo's caliber in downtown Rockford. We have dined several times at Abreo and have never been disappointed. We definitely recommend doing the tasting menu and wine pairing. You'll love it. Our only disappointment is that Dan (our waiter) is no longer there.
