All Abreo dishes are fantastic. The owners and staff are extremely attentive and make you feel at home. I highly recommend this place, whether it be business travelers or a romantic night out. The Shrimp Asiago is one of my personal favorites, with the Duck Nachos as a close second.

We recently ate at Abreo, close to downtown Rockford. This is a nice rather small restaurant. Great ambiance. The menu is all tapas with a very creative selection of vegetable based or meat based tapas. Waiter was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. Drink were also very good. I would highly recommend it and I will definitely be back when... More

I've been to Abreo's twice- each time was a great experience. Latest visit was early Feb for an anniversary dinner. Had great service from the start to the end of the meal. The drinks were amazing. To start with we had the nachos which were delicious (and huge!). Due to the size of the nachos, my husband and I shared... More

What a wonderful place for couples to visit and dine on excellent food. We had the nicest evening catching up with old friends without being rushed and then dining on some of the finest food I have had in months. The small servings are beautifully presented by Chef Paul. Two make a nice meal for older persons. Three make a... More

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
