I was here for our anniversary and had a great time! The food was good though not much I would eat as I'm a simple girl. The atmosphere was great and the service was amazing. Dessert was the best! If you're in Alton, have some great food here!

Spent our Valentine's Day here and loved it. Order the pork chop, you won't be disappointed. Definetly one of the pricest restaurants in the area, but perfect for celebrating a special occasion!

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.
