We went here for an anniversary lunch on a Sunday. Brunch menu included breakfast and some nice fish entrees. The atmosphere is elegant, but relaxing, with attentive service. Lovely views from the dining room, overlooking gardens and the river. We ordered red snapper and salmon. Both were nicely presented, and just the right portion. Price was $17-18 for these dinners,...

Atwater's was suggested to me by a friend, as a place to celebrate my anniversary. So my wife and I dined there roughly 2 weeks ago. We began our evening at the bar, where Hal took extraordinary care of us. He was extremely attentive, without being overly-so and disrupting our romantic evening. After a few drinks, we moved into the... More

We have bere there many times for lunch and breakfast. Never ever disappointed. We had a family breakfast for 7 and everyone was extremely pleased with their meals. Large portions, beautiful presentations and delicious. The room is beautifully and the garden surroundings gorgeous. Highly recommended for food and atmosphere

The setting was very nice. A cool evening, and the fireplace was going which made for a nice atmosphere along with Windows which allows you to look out on the Fox River. The waiters were good but not overly attentive. It took awhile to get a drink order in. The food was well prepared & the menu was unusual. The... More

This is absolutely the perfect place for a special celebration! The menu, which not expansive, is interesting and diverse featuring outstanding selections to please everyone's taste. Service is very good, attentive but not intrusive. The atmosphere is cozy, not a large dining area, and romantic. Good views of the river from most tables. Prices are competitive and fairly reasonable for... More

A couple of friends and I visited Atwater's in December during the holiday season. It was a magical lunch. The dining area was beautiful and the food was sooooo good. My friends are still talking about our visit.

Everything from the staff, to the drinks, the food, and the atmosphere was absolutely perfect. We were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in, the staff was super attentive to all of our needs, and the place is just gorgeous. I had the Eggs Benedict on top of crab cakes that was quite scrumptious. There were 6 of... More

Thank you very much Danielle. That's really nice to hear and our Chef always likes to see empty plates come back to the kitchen! We may be a bit further away but you can always stay the night and enjoy all that Geneva has to offer. Thank you again, Jesse More

We went to celebrate our 4th Anniversary. Had a spritzer and beer to start. We had the dining room to ourselves for awhile. Brought us each a complimentary stuffed mushroom from the chef. Delicious! Had the peach salad, and the Atwater salad. Loved each of them, the flavors so unique. Then had the Asian salmon, and the filet. We ate... More

Great food. Great service. Excellent presentation. Just the place for a romantic dinner out. We had a wonderful evening, we were able to take our time, and as we stayed at The Herrington it was a short walk back to our room!
