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

This is a gem in Alton with a great view of the Clark Bridge and Mississippi river. The service was great and the food was enjoyable. No need to visit STL with a place like this in my own back yard.

Gentelin's is a top notch "big city" restaurant in a small town. The food and service are excellent. While they don't have private rooms, there are able to seat a large group (12) in a location that gives you the ability to socialize. I've been taking 12 people there for dinner after a day of shooting and hunting at NILO... More

Best bite we had while visiting Alton! The specials were well crafted and cooked perfectly. We particularly enjoyed a grilled chicken breast pasta. The chicken was cooked to perfection! The liquor selection was also extensive and satisfying.

The pork chop was excellent and the grilled chicken pasta was outstanding. For a nicer restaurant, the prices at Gentelin's are appropriate. I'm subtracting one star just because Gentelin's food and service should place it in the category of fine dining, but the place is so popular (at least on the weekend) that the atmosphere is more like a TGI...

We came for a nice dinner......until it got loud. The toasted ravioli was actually deep fried. It was ok if you want deep fried. The salmon was excellent, my chicken pasta they left the peas off, I asked for it that way, was very good. We both now have lunch for tomorrow.

I was alone on business when I found this gem. It's always hard to dine alone but I felt very comfortable there. Great service and interesting food. Great experience.

My Wife and I went to Gentilens for our 55th Wedding Anniversary. We were seated promptly for our 6:30 Reservation at a Nice table for 4 by the window. We told the waitress we needed a little time to look at the Menu before ordering. I guess she thought we needed a lot of time since we did not see... More
