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. A great experience and my granddaughter and I had our own time together to share... More

My wife and I ate at this wonderful little restaurant that is located at the Harrington. It has a great garden/river view. We were pleasantly greeted as soon as we walked in and were asked if we would like a to have a drink at the bar or be seated right away. We chose to be seated. We started our... More

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

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
