Went to Atwater’s for a late work dinner. The wine selection was great. The dinner was delicious and the service was good. I had the lamb and the peach salad. The grilled peaches were delicious.

Spectacular in a nutshell. This restaurant has service that is how fine dining was meant to be. The food was well proportioned, fantastic flavor and well presented. Skip the trendy overrated restaurants like Ruth’s Chris, Mortens, 95th, and try this gem in Geneva.

We had dinner at Atwater's while staying at the Herrington Inn. Service is on point and extremely attentive. The baramundhi and duck were delicious! Creme brulee was a great end to the meal.
