We have eaten at 5 Forks numerous times and it seems to get better each time. The food is spectacular and the service is second to none in Rockford.

This little gem is a bit off the path, but worth the drive. ( 10 minutes of 94)
Atmosphere is very nice, bar area, open kitchen, two dining rooms.
Nice wine selection as you enter to have with your meal.
Food is tapas style but portions in the large side.
We had tuna ( just okay), Mexican flat bread pizza, artichoke/chicken/spinach, squash soup. Balance were very good.
We had a hummus appetizer with veggies and flat bread- very good.
Service was good as well, very attentive.
I had a glass of Spanish wine recommended - unremarkable.
With tip $100.

This restaurant is sort of hidden and near no other restaurants, so it doesn't get a lot of passerby attention, but don't let that throw you off. The wine selection is great (and they also have a charity program tied with certain wines each month - a great way to give back a little). The menu is exciting in that it holds many flavor combinations that you don't get in the Rockford chain restaurants. The food was delightfully yummy and while they are smaller tapas plates, I did not leave feeling hungry. The staff was incredibly friendly without being overbearing and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and restaurant workings. Pleasant people, atmosphere and food at higher, but not unreasonable prices. Great experience.

My wife and I stopped here for a late lunch after reading some of the TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Our Antipasto appetizer was a delight. This was a great choice and the slow roasted tomatoes were really good and combined with the mixed olives, mozzarella and prosciutto made for a perfect start to our lunch. We decided on the steak over spinach salad and the seared tuna salad. Both were excellent. Our server David did a great job. We will return. Next time for dinner.

We were greeted by a friendly, knowledgeable waitress. She was prompt/efficient with a great sense of humor. My wife ordered Crab Cakes & I had the Crab Stuffed Portobello. Both were excellent. The Five Forks salad was crisp, fresh with a great combination of flavors. Wine selection is outstanding.
While this is difficult to locate the "first time", you will not forget where it is for a repeat dining experience.
Well worth the trip and we definitely will return for another GREAT dinner.
