We actually went here for dinner to try Abreo out to see if we wanted our wedding catered by them. Between the so-so food and having to chase down the person that provided quotes for catering, it just wasn't worth it.

Really good and creative food. A bit pricey for Rockford standard but if that’s not a concern, you will enjoy their menu.
