We found Gentelin's in a moment of desperation. I have Celiac's Disease and we were in town for the weekend. Gentelin's came up on my gluten-free app, but we were a bit under dressed and worried about getting in as they were busy. The hostess found us a table and we were thrilled with the food and service. There were... More

They have typical foods, but have a wonderful diverse amount of options. The blue cheese potatoes are beautiful. I have been going there for years and every time I get a steak it is cooked exactly like I wanted. This is the only restaurant that I've had a perfectly cooked steak every time I go.

Took a party of 8 to Gentelin's on Friday night. All of my guests had a decent meal and the service was very good. Nothing supper fancy just good food and good service.

We had a lovely meal here. On the night we visited they were offering a three course meal for $25 and this looked to be a favourite amongst other diners. The choice offered was pretty good and from what we could see the dishes seemed to be well received. We chose to go to the main menu as it featured... More

The staff is very well trained. Also their work ethic is impeccable. You can tell when employees love their job bye how they work together and there were 3 people covering our needs including our waitress. We wanted for nothing other than more room in our bellies for the delicious food. Creme Brule was in a dish that was a... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years. When I order a steak medium, or medium well, it is to perfections! I have never been to a restaurant that cooked my steak perfectly every time! The Blue Cheese gratin potatoes are awesome! Never ever had a bad meal! The wine list is very nice at a low to medium... More
