You don't have to go all the way to Chicago for a great meal. A good friend said that this was a great contender for any restaurant in Chicago and had wonderful service, atmosphere and more.

Unique menu; small portions; but tons of flavor! My wife loves to go here on date nights or when having a special meal with her girl friends. You do not get huge portions but if you want gourmet food you should expect this.

Hubby and I came here on a Monday night to quietly contemplate the passing of a loved one. The restaurant has industrial design, subdued lighting and was very quiet and a unique concept-- it doubles as a retail wine/beer establishment(carefully curated selection), so when you know what you are going to order you have the option of choosing a beverage....

Had a group of 6 people for dinner so a lot of different items were selected for consumption. The food was great, nice selection of wines on the wall to go with everything. Service was quite good. Enjoyed the meal and evening.

Only giving this 4 stars because of a few of things that got under my skin. First, I love your Crab Cakes. Why do they keep getting smaller and smaller? I'm aware you are a Tapas place but they are much smaller than they used to be. Perhaps you could over a larger version for a little more as an... More

My husband and I love this restaurant. Five Forks has a unique and fresh menu, and a great wine selection. The place is small and cozy, and somewhat hidden in a small strip mall, but worth the effort to find. We usually get a couple different plates to share, and are never disappointed! If you are looking for a different... More

We went for dinner and I had the beef and bleu, and it was cooked perfectly. We ate at the kitchen bar, and it was warm there on a cold night. Hard to find a place that cooks your steak exactly how you like it, and the chef did it to perfection. We had crab cake appetizers, and they were... More

Amazing food, great atmosphere. Love this place. The roasted brussel sprouts are wonderful and the fried olives were so good, have never thought about olives for an appetizer. Wonderful place will definately come back.

Went on a Tuesday night for casual dinner with a friend. The service was really great. Interesting menu choices. Try the deep fried mashed potatoes and the Brussel sprouts, I hate Brussel sprouts. These were delicious! The pork with bread dumplings was also very good. The coffee, actually tasted like coffee, better than I have had a 'breakfast restaurants'. Leave... More
