Atwater's in The Herrington
Here’s a fabulous restaurant with great food and courteous wait staff. Wonderful experience, nice view of river. We will return soon
A wonderful Christmas tradition for our family!
It is a joy to have dinner at Atwater's, especially at Christmas time. The atmosphere is fabulous, the service outstanding and the food is to die for. I went with my good friend - there were a lot of folks celebrating the season. It is also a has a very romantic ambience. I absolutely recommend Atwaters
Well for starters, we you buy an expensive bottle of wine; they suppose to a least serve you, but no, they did not. Food was dry . Food presentation is good, however, they should at least give you salad and soup with your entree instead of paying extra for it.
Date night. Great ambiance. Excellent food and service.
The food was delicious and the waitress and staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. This was our first time there and we will definitely be back. It is a very intimate setting, perfect for a special occasion. Highly recommended.
We were there to celebrate our anniversary, it’s our favorite place. It’s quiet, elegant and the food is delicious. The staff knows how to be helpful but not intrusive. Tha atmosphere is elegant as well as the food
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Atwater's. Our meal was absolutely delicious.
Great meal and excellent service!
We came for a late lunch on Saturday. We started with a cocktail, it was made perfectly; and a beer. For starters we had a Butternut squash soup and an excellent Caesar salad! For our mains we both had the tandoori sandwich, interesting, and very good. Finished off with a decadent chocolate ganache dessert-yummy. Service was good. We will return!
Beautiful setting, great food and attentive service
This was a delightful dining experience in a beautiful setting overlooking the Fox River and with the glow of a fireplace to add to the ambience. It is perfect for a quiet dinner or with friends who want to celebrate the season.
Had not been here in a while but dinner was delicious. Food and service were both great. We visited for an anniversary and would do so again. I would preference a different table next time as we were seated by the service area in the back which was a little noisy but overall not bad. A signed Anniversary card on the table when we arrived was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend Atwater's.
Always wonderful plus a new Fall menu. Had the Halibut and it was delicious. Will be back very soon. Renee our server was the best!!
Always a great meal. Can't beat the ambiance, and the service is excellent.
Thanks to Open Table we decided on Atwater’s. It was everything we hoped for and more. Delicious beyond measure. We enjoyed brunch and will go again for lunch or dinner. What a gem! If we didn’t live so close we would stay there for a night or too at the Herrington!
excellent service and meal! Love the atmosphere and view of the river.
Everything was just perfect. We had a very enjoyable brunch.
We had a very nice dining experience. The food was very well prepared and beautifully presented. The choices for appetizers covered a wide range while the entrees left you having a hard time making your finial decision. Makes you want to come back very soon. Desert selection was also outstanding. Great wine selection! When you leave you know you have been to a special dinner and look forward to your next visit.
This is my favorite place to eat, the room is lovely, the service impeccable, and the food extraordinary. We all always so amazed at their level of sophistication.
Outstanding service and food!
We go here often for Sunday brunch
I highly recommend it
Beautiful setting, good food but small portions. Service was very slow.
My mother and I enjoyed 3 wonderful meals at Atwater. While we enjoyed each meal; we had some favorites....
1. The beet salad is unbelievable! Never had so many wonderful textures and flavors.
2. The rack of lamb was truly a work of art. Presentation and flavor were flawless!!!!!
3. The squash soup was delicious!!!! What a treat.
The entire dining experience was enhanced by the chef’s small bites... The chocolate ganache cake was a slice of heaven!!! Could not have wished for a more wonderful experience!!!!!
Awesome place for special occations. On the banks of Fox River
Everything great. Just family with kids that were s little noisey.
That took away from our experience. No fault of restaurant
The experience at Atwater’s is always special. The service is top notch and the food is very good. Great place for a special occasion. Very quaint.
Food is delectable and service top notch. Truly a gem of a place!
This place is always nice to have celebrations with my family
My favorite place for dinner, the room itself is a joy but then the service, noise level and food are the extras.
After reading and hearing wonderful things about the restaurant, we decided to go there to celebrate on our honeymoon (we were staying in the Inn). We noted on the reservation that it was our honeymoon, and we told our server, but we didn't even get a "congratulations." Other diners who overheard us tell the server our news congratulated us, so I know that our server heard it. Our experience was a major disappointment, both the service (which was inattentive) and the food. We ordered a roasted beet salad that was out of a bag with nothing exciting about it, and it had zero flavor. The soup was ho-hum and not very hot, and our entree was a monotone gray color. We ordered the day's special of whitefish with fingerling potatoes and charred artichokes. While the char did have a nice flavor, the plate and entree had zero finesse to it, and who serves gray artichokes at this caliber of a restaurant? It was very unappetizing to look at, which is a big contributor to the overall dining experience. We talked about it with the server and she didn't seem to care. Atwater failed to impress us whatsoever, in fact, it was a huge disappointment and a dining experience we regret for such a special occasion.
Excellent food, superior and attentive service, quiet and romantic atmosphere.
We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and Atwater's was the perfect place to have a special dinner. Highly recommended!!
Wonderful dinner for a special occasion! :) Looking forward to returning.
Loved the special treats the chef sent out & my birthday dessert. Everything was delicious & artfully prepared. The only suggestion I’d have is the risotto was delicious but too heavy for an entree. I was so glad we decided to share meals to taste a little of everything so the risotto was more like a side dish. We also had a delicious breakfast on Sunday. We’ll be back!
Perfect venue for a quiet and elegant 65th anniversary celebration for our parents. The menu was innovative without being goofy (i.e. no "deconstructed," "foamed," etc). The chef offers perfectly cooked entrees with a variety of carefully matched garnishes that make every bite a little different and a delightful surprise. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Ambiance was rich and elegant.
Excellent food in a perfect setting for a quiet or romantic dinner. Staff was exceptional.
Quiet and cozy restaurant. Food and service excellent!
Celebrating a promotion at work and our daughters recent engagement
Had dinner with friends and a great time was had by all! Excellent restaurant but a bit overpriced.
