As a guest of The Goldmoor, we wanted to have dinner here the first night of our arrival. Our food, service and view were superb. If you are looking for a quiet, fine dining experience, I highly recommend it.

Beautiful setting over looking the Mississippi River - very good for a special occasion. Wasn’t impressed with the restaurants in Galena but Goldmoor was the exception. Very good food , perfect ambiance.
The Inn keeper spent time with us and told us about the history of the place. Made a special day even better

If you want a high end, adult (meaning mature) experience, The Goldmoor Restaurant is the place! Chef Joshua makes the food look beautiful on your plate, but also cooks to perfection! The atmosphere is so comfortable and classy. The service is terrific and friendly. The wine list is perfect. The desserts are amazing. You cannot go wrong, the menu gives great choices and everything is delicious.

Only issue was chicken on menu indicated chicken breast and they served leg quarters. For dietary reasons I try eat only white meat.

It was my husband’s birthday. Although I specified it was a special occasion, I would have like a table in the back overlooking the Mississippi River, but did not request. Next time I will. Atmosphere was romantic and beautiful. Food was very good. We will definitely be back.

We had a group of 8 of us back in their private room overlooking the river. It was a great experience overall with one of the best ribeyes we've ever eaten. Would absolutely go back and will recommend it to everyone!

We recently enjoyed our dinner at Goldmoor. Two guests ordered steaks. Their dinner came with green beans (good) and a baked potato. I wish the chef would have served a different potato side. Too many restaurants are going the easy route with popping potatoes in the oven. I hope he considers something else in the future besides a plain, common baked potato!

Continues to offer outstanding food, service and ambiance in the backroads of Galena. Just an unbelievable level of enjoyment. What a way to top off a visit to the Galena area, or a nice quiet stay right there at the Goldmoor itself. Beef Wellington, salmon , it’s all fantastic.

An absolutely fantastic meal with a lovely view of the river right outside the window. The owner stopped by to chat while we were waiting for our food. One of the most perfect dining experiences my wife or I have ever had.

The evening started off with the owner personally greeting us. The food was superb, the wine list excellent, and the ambiance was enhanced by a view of the Mississippi River as the sun set.

Gorgeous view at sunset - Overlooking the river, birds at the feeders and other animals scooting by.

Quiet, intimate.

Filet Mignon was one of the best I've ever had - absolutely incredible. Wife's Salmon also very good.

What a great restaurant find in the country outside of Galena. The food was fabulous. I had the beef wellington which was delicious! The wine selection was decent. We loved the food and location just a few things with service that could be better to make it more high end and total 5 star.

Incredibly overpriced for the quality of the food. If I’m paying $50 for a steak, I expect it to be on par with a high end steakhouse. It did not even come close.

I came here with my wife for a special occasion. It was off season so it was slow on a Saturday. It was perfect for us this evening! The service was great, Ashley was our server. The food was delicious. It is definitely $$$, but worth it. We had a great table with a view, great service, and awesome food. We will be back again.

The ambiance and music was lovely while looking over a very scenic and snowbwhite Mississippi River. Server Ashley and owner Birgit were very accommodating! We can’t wait to come back!

A very nice & cozy supper club/fine dining experience. The menu is small. Steaks were flavorful & done as ordered. Salted caramel cheesecake delicious with a memorable presentation. Atmosphere was almost too quiet. More on the pricey side.
