Wonderful experience!

We stopped in for dinner and got lucky as we found out reservations are usually needed. The whole experience was delightful. Very comfortable atmosphere with an attentive but not overbearing staff and spot on perfect food. Best dining experience in Alton I have ever had.

We go to Gentelins for special occasions or for a night out with just the two of us. The food is always good, the wine list has a great Duckhorn Merlot, the view of the river is always fabulous, and the service is excellent. What else can you say about a great restaurant.

We had been staying in Grafton for a week and needed some place new for dinner. I had been to Alton several years ago and knew there were nice restaurants there. I checked trip advisor and reviewed some menus and decided to try Genelins. It was a good choice. Excellent service and great food. The wine list was also impressive.... More

We had a delightful experience at Gentelin's. We made reservations for 6 and one couple had never eaten there before. We gave them the river view. The pork chop is delicious! Our friends really enjoyed eating and dining there.

Have eaten there many times and the food and service is outstanding. The onl thing I would change is the acoustics. When the restaurant is full it is loud.

This place is great for any occasion. The staff, management and food are excellent. Did I mention Wine? Great selection of wine to pair with your meal. My favorite appetizer is the Blue cheese beef kabobs. Mmmm What are you waiting for? : )

The food and service were excellent. The salmon was great and also the salad with baby greens and apples. We also enjoyed the wine. There were many wines to choose from and we picked a merlot. The view of the Alton bridge and river park were very nice. The decor of the restaurant was contemporary and very attractive.
