We ate dinner while watching the sun set over the Mississippi.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial trip because of GOldmoorI would recommend this restaurant t o anyone looking for a special place to celebrate a special occasion or really I would just recomment it for any reason. The food was excellent and the ambience could not be beaten. So glad we found it.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband surprised me withMy husband surprised me with dinner at the Goldmoor. What a special place this is... the food was wonderful and sevice was fantastic. Busy place but we were in no rush! We were one of the last dinner reservations, but loved relaxing and talking and taking our time with dinner. Thank you for making our anniversary a special evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost top notch...The positives: Service was exceptional. The views were great. Decent wine list and knowledgable staff. Staff was welcoming and hospitable. Crystal wine glasses, etc. A romantic night out. Clean - staff seemed to take pride in their service. Seasonal menu -somewhat limited but there's something for everyone. The shrimp avocado appetizer was great.
The negatives: the beef stroganoff, while cooked perfectly (which is tough to do) was tough. When I order filet in a restaurant of this caliber I expect to be able to almost cut it with a butter knife. Not true in this case. The filet was tough - clearly not high quality. The ribeye - again - tough and in this case over cooked.
That being said, presentation was great.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for our anniversary.Went there for our anniversary. It was very nice. Even though it was a cloudy day, it was very picturesque.

Location, ambiance and view of the Galena tributary to the Mississippi with sunset in background are simply fabulous...4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my husband to dinnerI took my husband to dinner for celebrate his birthday. I wanted a special location to celebrating and The Goldmoor did not disappoint us. The front view is amazing, and we asked to sit next to the window so we enjoyed the most beautiful sunset with the Mississippi River view. The food and the staff are outstanding. A gem must to see!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great location, niceWhat a great location, nice views of the Mississippi. This is also a B&B that I would love to stay at sometime. Small menu that covers everything, the Trout was very good.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVELY VIEW....My husband and I had dinner here recently. Upsides: the dining room view, overlooking the Mississippi, with trains rolling by; very pleasant, particularly as the sun was setting. My husband was not feeling 100% on the night we ate here, so that took away quite a bit from the overall enjoyment of the evening. The waitress was very pleasant and accommodating. Additionally, the host who greeted us was nice. The food was a 4 out of 5. I enjoyed my soup and salad, but I thought the Beef Wellington should have been served without large mounds of mashed potatoes. My husband enjoyed his trout; nicely cooked. Unfortunately, a fidgety child eating with his parents negatively impacted our evening. We'd be 70+/30- about returning.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAn outstanding experienceAn outstanding experience in every way. Comparable to nationally known restaurants in which we have dined. This restaurant is a true gem and worth a special trip of many miles. Food, atmosphere, and service all of the highest level. There was nothing in our dining experience which rated less than five stars. In 45 years of dining in fine restaurants I have never been this generous with a review.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Goldmoor was rated oneThe Goldmoor was rated one of the most romantic restaurants in Illinois.
