Atwater's is "our" restaurant for our anniversary celebration. We have been there at least ten times. We enjoy the intimacy, the quiet, and the good food and wine selections. On our last visit we noted the menu changes and felt there wasn't enough variety for the entrees. I was ready to close the menu and go elsewhere but the lamb... More

Five of us ladies went there last week for a little bridal luncheon. Everything was classy, from the time I first called to make the reservation, until we arrived, ate, and left the restaurant. Everyone was great. The hostess gave us a great table for our special event, and everyone treated us like royalty. One of the best parts was... More

Extremely attentive server, knowledgeable of the menu and preparation techniques. Beautiful setting in a dining room with comfortable over-sized dining chairs. Perfectly prepared food, presented exactly as requested. Right-sized dining room and staff for romantic or professional dinners. Menu and wine list not overbearing and priced appropriately for this level of service. Will certainly return.

The service was good the food was better and the atmosphere being in the private gazebo was spectacular. My wife had the Filet and I had the Monk Fish... More

We stopped for lunch at Atwater's and asked to sit outside. The ambiance is wonderful. Beautiful gazebo with the Fox River running behind it. Lunch portions were perfect sizes from the chicken salad crossiant to the salmon. We were very pleased and will go back. We will recommend this hotel/restaurant.

What an experience going into a wonderful restaurant and knowing immediately that the staff is as excited about being at the restaurant as you are. The way Joe, our waiter, talked about the food and the enthusiasm by which he greeted us as a patron set the stage for a wonderful evening. That is the experience we had on our... More

The manager and the floor manager did an exceptional job of making sure my granddaughter's birthday was special. My granddaughter loved the finger sandwiches, the truffles, and the muffins, food was very good, my favorite was the blueberry scones they were delicious!!! Service was exceptional.

You can see my brief review under our Herrington review, but this was a great experience. I requested help with a prix fixe menu, but was unable to get one. It would have been nice for the chef to set up a more progressive meal, but what we ate was wonderful. We had the crab fritters and foie gras as... More
