Today was my fourth visit. And most definitely not my last. I must say that this is my favorite restaurant in Rockford. Their food in my humble opinion is superb. Such wonderful flavors! Hands down the best raw oysters (east & west) coast. The customer service is also excellent. Daniel at the bar is super friendly and helpful. Not only to customers. But, I've also noticed with his co-workers as well. In particular with a new employee Laria (2days on board)who waited on me. full review
Seated on the patio which was nice looking, as is the inside. The girlfriend ordered a recommended cocktail which was forgettable. The next mixed drink she ordered was called the lola and it was pretty good except the rosemary garnish appeared old and had black and greyish spots instead of being all green. Ordered six oysters which were east coast because west coast were out. One of my three oysters tasted good but the other two were bland and not fresh seeming. The shrimp full review

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I have not experienced such fine dining since I moved from Chicago. The decor, the music, the food and the service exceeded my expectations! What a wonderful hidden gem right here in Rockford. Enrique treated us as royalty. I can hardly wait to return.
