One of my Absolute favorite places to eat in Rockford!
The food here is exceptional!!! Whatever you do, make sure to try the dessert. It is worth it!
We had an amazing dinner here. We sat on their back patio which was lovely. Attentive service, delicious cocktails. Don’t miss the fried pickled cauliflower appetizer!!
It’s our favorite restaurant in Rockford, hands down.
Try everything! You won't be disappointed. From a Sunday brunch to a Thursday evening dinner, there's something for everyone.
Fabulous as always!!
Good food, enjoyable place to go for lunch. Will return.
If you are looking for locally sourced food prepared fresh when you place your order, you should consider dining in or out at The Norwegian. The setting is warm and welcoming with most of the furnishings hand crafted by the owners. Their wait staff is excellent and are so happy to be employed by Emily. We were there at an off hour for a late lunch, and we asked our server to take a photo on the occasion of our 54th anniversary. He was most accommodating in spite of a difficult setting with the bright light behind us.
Great experience as always! Josh and Amy at the bar delivered an awesome service experience and we can’t wait to come back!
Amazing food and service! We enjoyed breakfast on a lovely Sunday!
The Norwegian is always a wonderful place to dine. The food is always delicious and the staff is very welcoming.
This is what every restaurant should try to imitate. Great staff, great food, and a warm and comfortable setting.
Absolutely lovely! The outdoor setting was magical on a clear, surprisingly warm December evening. The service was friendly, personal and charming. The food was warm, fragrant, delicious and delightful. A wonderful, winter 2020 evening. So needed. Will be a treasured memory.
Great experience! Weather was chilly but the servers, food, and setting made for a very enjoyable evening. Will definitely do it again
The Norwegian is always an experience. Unique menu, but they were out of some items by the time we arrived at 6:30pm. There were heaters installed at each table, but the circuit breakers kept tripping, causing the lights and heat to go out one section at a time. About every 20 minutes, a section would be plunged into darkness, though staff quickly addressed the issue.
Always a great meal with excellent food, drink, and service!❤️
Excellent flavors and service is always friendly and on time
Great service and a friendly staff! It’s very homey and relaxed.
Best omelet in Rockford!
I’ve had many incredible meals at the Norwegian, but this was one of the best. The most perfect of Brussel sprouts to start, followed by perfectly cooked steak and egg and topped off with a hot toddy. The staff (Josh, Amy, Taylor) was warm, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We’re so glad that we were there on the last weekend of service. Love the Weeg. We so hope you can weather this storm.
The atmosphere is wonder. The food is unique and flavorful. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient
Creative, delicious food. Smart attention to health protocols. Friendly and attentive service.
Always caring about their customers. Unique and delicious.
With indoor & outdoor dining limitations changing almost hourly, the Norwegian crew adapts on the fly very well. As always, the staff was friendly and Josh would have your coffee refilled before you realized it was nearing the bottom. Breakfast was awesome as always, too.
Top drawer. Had a table waiting and service was prompt.
This is a fabulous restaurant with unique atmosphere...Norwegian! The food is always fresh and delicious and beautifully served. There are always vegetarian and vegan options as well. Wonderful coffee and great servers! Generally open for breakfast and lunch .
Extremely unique experience. Rockford has nothing else like this.
Given the very challenging circumstances that restaurants currently find themselves in, our experience at the Norwegian was especially good! They treated us as if everything were normal and they weren’t struggling to stay open when the state keeps wanting to shut them down. The food was excellent as was the service. We especially love their coffee!!!!
A pleasant last minute change back to limited indoors seating. Always good to warm up on a cool morning with some Shakshuka, warms your insides right up. As usual, everybody on the staff friendly and really know their stuff.
They always do an excellent job. Emily, her husband and all the staff do their best to give you a great dining experience. During this time of COVID-19 they are going above and beyond. I will highly recommend it.
I love this restaurant! They always have creative menu options and delicious cocktails. They've been rolling with the punches during these COVID times, and still manage to create a lovely outdoor dining experience with excellent service. 10/10 would recommend.
Delicious pumpkin coconut soup, great service
Had a very enjoyable time
Just a great ambience! And a nice departure from the ‘norm’! I’ve been there to eat at least half a dozen times and they never disappoint!!
Awesome food and service as always!
Love the comfort and unique atmosphere, their willingness to try different items on their menu, special events, and friendly staff. Highly recommend to everyone who has had enough of the “cookie cutter” chain restaurants.
The Biscuits and Gravy are amazing!
The bartender made a custom mimosa that was brilliant!
Dinner was sublime. Would love the Shepherd’s Pie and Coconut Pumpkin Soup to become regulars on the menu (or at least the autumn menu).
We had lunch outside. It was very chilly, but the service was excellent. I ordered my usual Croque Madame. The food and coffee were hot and delicious!
