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.

Atwater's is a very nice restaurant, and one of the best in the Geneva/St. Charles area. The menu is somewhat limited, but what it serves is excellent. I enjoyed an excellent shrimp cocktail and the duck confit. Atwater's also includes small chef samplings between courses...More

Our typical response is business casual. Jackets are not required. The atmosphere is upscale but not pretentious.
