Treat yourself! Orom is the finest restaurant in Dixon, Illinois by far. A bit pricey but well worth the splurge!

Creative, tasty, comfy and...de-lish. Love going there and seeing what new and inventive things the chef has produced. I would like to order everything on the menu, but I enjoy going back. If you are eating in Dixon this is a must try!

Delicious. Split the mussels (biggest I've ever seen) for starters... I don't really like mussels, but they were good. Hubby loved them. We each had the filet and it was cooked to perfection and delicious. The green beans and potatoes were delicious as well. Everything was very fresh. Great bottle of wine too. Mark, the chef, greeted us at the... More

We happened to find this gem in Dixon! My wife had a filet mignon and it was the best she has ever had! I had tuna steaks and it was excellent. It is a little pricy but so worth it!

This restaurant was a wonderful surprise in our home town. We made reservations and arrived early to sit and have a drink at the bar. They had an excellent selection of beers and we were served quickly. As we were finishing up our drink we were seated at our table. We ordered the shrimp cocktail and is was very fresh... More

This is a great little place in a cool town. We went with family while we were visiting and had the most delicious meal. Every one of us enjoyed everything. We got one each of all the appetizers and they were all unique and delicious. The bread is very good and plentiful. Our table ordered a pork dish – a... More

Really inventive, well-prepared modern and classic dishes. This place would succeed anywhere. Very fresh seafood, particularly considering the central Illinois location. Service was a little amateurish, but all the food was five star. Prices quite reasonable. Wine list limited, but very nice choices. Big group of family, and we'd all gladly return.

This is an excellent little place. If you are looking for a nice evening with good wine and pleasant atmosphere in this part of the state, this is an excellent choice. The shrimp cocktail is particularly good. A small town gem.
