From the moment we arrived, we knew that this would be a tremendously great experience! The décor in both the bar area and restaurant - not to mention the view of the river - was superior. The bartender and the wait staff were outstanding. The presentation and the food was excellent! I had the "special" - one of the best... More

We ate there after a wedding. We sat outside with a large group of 17 people and had appetizers and drinks. You would have thought we were the only people there. We were so well taken care of . We then moved inside for dinner and the service and great food continued.

Atmosphere is excellent, prices are a real bargain for a top notch Chef. View of the river is not that great

My husband and I had dinner here mid-week while visiting Alton. The food was beautiful in appearance and taste. The view of the river was beautiful. The site of the restaurant is historical as is most of Alton. It was the site of the Madison Hotel, known for fine dining at the turn of the 20th century. Our waitress was... More

Mr. Ryan Gentelin's culinary project was once the finest dining experience in the greater Alton area, while I can't say that any other restaurant within a thirty mile radius compares, this fact is only due to the uncivilized foodscape that exists in Western Illinois. Gentelin's used to be a finer restaurant, but the quality in service and fare has most... More

Meet friends for dinner. Enjoyed the chicken pasta( requested no peas ) & the wife liked the salmon. Friendly staff with a warm atmosphere to enjoy dinner.

I've been here many times since it first opened and consistently have had great service and food. Chef Ryan has even taken my husband's requests each year for our anniversary dessert, peanut butter cheesecake. There are not many nicer dining options in Alton and they have a great view of the Clark Bridge and Mississippi River.

My wife and I love this place, it is by far the best dining in the area. The service has always been exceptional, they also craft the BEST dirty martini iI have ever had (and I've had a few). If you are looking for the Clayton experience in Alton this is it.

I have been enjoying Gentelin's on Broadway since they opened several years ago. Their service is great - the ambiance is upscale - and they offer items on their menu that are not offered at other restaurants in the Alton area. Their prices are reasonable also. It is my favorite place to have dinner in Alton.

My girlfriend and I have been here 3 times now. And I would have to say all 3 times I was not impressed. The food was just not that great. And this place is not cheap. We spent about $100 on each visit. On top of all of the food issues, the service is not all that great either. Our... More
