If you aren't familiar with OpenTable, it is a fantastic online program that allows users to book reservations at their favorite restaurants online.

I've used OpenTable as both someone making a reservation and as someone receiving the reservation.

OpenTable via Reboot Illinois has put out a list of the best restaurants in Illinois. I've decided to narrow it down to the best restaurants in Northern Illinois.

In no particular order:

  1. Franchesco's, Rockford
  2. Green Fire, Rockford
  3. Alchemy at Giovanni's, Rockford
  4. Josef Barbados Steakhouse & Oyster Bar, Rockford
  5. Vito's Ristorante, Rockford
  6. The Flight Deck Bar and Grill, Rochelle
  7. Fried Green Tomatoes, Galena
  8. Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy', Galena
  9. One Eleven Main, Galena
  10. Woodlands Restaurant at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa, Galena
  11. Perry Street Brasserie, Galena
  12. Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub and Grill, Galena
  13. Goldmoor Restaurant, Galena
  14. Sunset Grille - Chestnut Mountain, Galena

How many of these restaurants have you visited? I know that I have many on this list that I need to try!
