This is one of the few very fine dining restaurants in the far west burbs. We have enjoyed Atwaters on numerous occasions. This is a small place with a great view right on the river. The food is excellent and the service was probably the best we have had...the fine restaurants have a real problem in finding good staff in... More

Ate here when we stayed at the Herrington Inn for a winter get away. The restaurant is small and intimate and the food is delicious. Service was exceptional and very friendly without being overbearing. We got to experience the 3 course restaurant week menu which was delicious. We especially liked the espresso rubbed pork tenderloin.

Had a quick lunch before a wedding here. Duck salad was excellent and had a butternut squash soup which was very tasty! Would recommend but a little on the high side in price for basically soup and salad. Warm fire place and cozy atmosphere.

Whether I want to "dress to the nines" or perhaps be a tad more casual and still plan to have a fine dining experience, Atwater's (in Geneva, Illinois) is one of my favorite go-to places. Late breakfasts for occasions like birthdays are always fun and the several iterations of Eggs Benedict are almost always done perfectly. The restaurant is very... More

I keep forgetting about this gem in Geneva. The dining area is very small and quaint by restaurant standards in this area. The menu while not extensive in number of entrees--there is enough spectrum to satisfy most tastes. There is also a daily special or two. The portions are good, but not over sized. The ingredients are all fresh with... More

Lovely view of the Fox River and Herrington gardens from an elegant sun room. Food and service is excellent, albeit pricey. I go mostly for the setting, so I prefer to dine here during daylight hours. If you are interested, the front desk of the hotel will have someone take you to see one of the first-floor guest rooms.
