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 food and food choices were excellent. The atmosphere and service were unexpectedly great, also. There was live piano and singing. Quite the find!

Because our guide book rated this restaurant as $$$, I was expecting it to be pricier than it actually was. Our meal was delicious and I actually found it to be quite reasonably priced for the quality! I would love to dine at Gentelin's again if we return to the area.

Gentelin's was recommended by the hosts at the B&B we were staying at. It was excellent! There is a wide menu. The food was excellent and moderately priced. Combined with the view of the riverfront created an excellent first experience in Alton!
