Our party of 5 women celebrating a dear friend's 60th birthday was surprised when we arrived with our own dining room. The owner chatted with us initially and made us feel so very welcomed. Chris, our server was outstanding, very efficient and attentive and so warm and kind. The food was excellent. 3 of our party had the beef wellington which was delicious, 2 of us had the filet. My potato was quite tiny (considering the size of most baked potatoes served in restaurants), however all in all, plenty of food. We shared 2 desserts, a chocolate mousse and a creme' brulette. Both delicious. We were worried it may be too "stuffy" for our fun-loving group, however it was not and we had a wonderful time! It was dark so didn't get to enjoy the view, however the building and front grounds were beautiful and impeccably kept. Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion.
Beautiful setting. Quiet with a great view of the Mississippi River at sunset. Foie Gras & Beef Wellington were terrific. Steak was cooked perfectly. The Red Snapper was also very good with an ample sized serving. The soup was a very inventive pumpkin ginger apple creation.
The owner greeted us & also thanked us as we departed. Goldmoor is a bit off the beaten path on a dark winding country road. Signage is good so it’s easy to find & worth the drive out of Galena.
Ashley, our waitress is always wonderful, rembers what your drink order is, efficient. The salads are huge, I get v 8, the table split it, no cheapo split plate charge.
The table had the signature beef wellingtons, a 30 day aged steak and the vegetarian gnocci.
My only fault with this place is on weekends, they should have a bartender. The wait staff makes their table's drinks, slows things down and I've seen house guests walk out waiting for someone to make a drink
You folks are losing revenue!
We celebrated our 23rd anniversary. Food was great as well as a nice table along the window. Will definitely be back
We love Goldmoor and will be back soon. The only miss was the shrimp. Seemed a bit mushy like it had been frozen and defrosted.
The occasion was my wife's birthday and our anniversary. Your inn and restaurant are the best in Galena.
Wonderful food, beautiful view, great service!
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.
Excellent! Food and service was excellent!!!!!
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.
Quiet, peaceful. Good food, great service. Aged ribeye very good, shrim/lobster cocktail excellent
Congenial host, pleasant ambience, superb food. Recommend highly.
The restaurant of the Goldmoor is a very special place indeed. The food and presentation are exquisite. The ambiance adds to the overall experience. We will definitely return to this unique dining location.
The food was delicious, the view was beautiful. We will definitely go back next time we are in Galena.
Only issue was chicken on menu indicated chicken breast and they served leg quarters. For dietary reasons I try eat only white meat.
Great experience! 1 of the owners came to our table and talked to us! Very nice
Way overpriced for an old fashioned menu and very small portions.
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!
Food and ambiance were perfect. Service and quality the best
Aweesome food and service. We used the private dining room for our group. Unbeatable.
Food and service was fabulous. The people next to us were noiser than I would have liked in a restaurant like this, something the restaurant can’t control.
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!
Amazing, romantic dinner and perfect ambiance in a beautiful building.
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.
There was a very noisy group, I wish they would have sat us away from them. I was hoping for a quite romantic evening. Overall it was a nice place good food. Just a bad luck on our seating arrangement.
Delicious dinner in a Beautiful setting!
Overpriced for the quality of the food and price of drinks. I have had much better for less. Owners and waitress were outstanding. Good drinks. Great ambiance.
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.
This place is wonderful, great atmosphere, even better food. Go Beef Wellington , best on the menu!!!
Had a great time celebrating our anniversary at the Goldmoor. Service was very attentive and the food was superb! In fact, we usually have the excellent Beef Wellington and this meal was the best we had ever had!!! Out compliments to the chef and owners!
First time there and we had a wonderful time We will definitely be back again.
There were three of us dining and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The host was especially gracious and helped us with our wine and food selections and also told us about recreational activities in the area. From appetizers to dessert, every meal course was delicious!
The filet mignon was fantastic and the service was wonderful. Love this restaurant. Never disappoints.
Gorgeous view at sunset - Overlooking the river, birds at the feeders and other animals scooting by.
Filet Mignon was one of the best I've ever had - absolutely incredible. Wife's Salmon also very good.
Quality of the food and ambiance is nice but waitress quality of service was very poor and not reflective of everything else
Great ambiance. Views of the river. Wonderful personalized service ..... and the food A+. We had the lamb popsicles for a starter, duck breast and scallops and crab for entree. All were done to perfection. First time visitors and will be returning.
Very welcoming. Showstopping river view and sunset. Very engaging proprietor.
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.
