Nice place, good service--I get the small portions idea. It was just too pricy for what you got so the value wan't there. Would have tried more dishes but did not want to spend the money. I do not mind spending money if the over all value of food and experience is worth it. Desert was excellent.

We're just getting used to tasting menus so we were interested in Abreo's unique and delicious approach to dining. At Abreo, located at 515 East State Street in Rockford, chef Paul Sletten offers four unique dining areas and a newly remodeled bar, an outdoor patio and a private dining room. Most of all, he offers a menu of small plates,... More

We had an amazing dining experience at Abreo last night. My vegetarian lifestyle was welcomed and accommodated to compliment my date's carnivore desires. Each dish was carefully put together with fresh and contrasting ingredients. The steak elotes were my date's favorite. I liked everything! We ended with two diverse and yummy desserts of raspberry crepes and warm chocolate cake. While... More

Having lived away from Rockford for a year, we made sure to visit our favorite restaurant for dinner. The chef has moved and so has the quality of the fare. The small plates looked even smaller than I remember. The prices are as high as before, but quality is lacking. I wish I could have written a review similar to... More

We were looking for a tapas place... this was not it. We were tired and hungry, so we decided to try it out. It turned out to be just a small plates type place, but a great surprising find! Great cocktails and small plates of delicious creations by their chef. My boyfriend and I were very happy when we left... More

Longtime customer there for Valentines Day with my Valentine. It was OK but only OK. Dishes lacked the wow factor that it has demonstrated in the past. Sauces were heavy and a bit overworked. None peeked my curiosity or made me say "mmmm". It was fine. But at $200 for 2 people it wasn't actually worth the money. Never said... More

Really bummed to hear the food didn't WOW you Sunday night. Our food is the cornerstone and foundation of our restaurant, and just ok doesn't reflect our vision. I personally worked the line and cooked all night, so I take responsibility and appreciate the honest feedback. Accountability helps keep us on top of our game, so thank you. I look... More

We went in thinking Tapas and it's so not Tapas... it's just small plates to share... or not. Delicious dining experience! Great cocktails.
