    Waiter forgot to put in our food order and it wasn’t busy- only 7 other tables. 1 hour and 25 min of waiting for dinner. They brought free dessert, but didn’t even ask what we would like and by then it was after 8pm and not really interested in it. They acted like the food was going to erase the poor service. Nope. Painful bill to pay for that service.

    I have eaten at the Goldmoor twice with my wife, and both times the dinner was exceptional. I am not someone who goes out of their way or cares too much about food, but the Beef Wellington is an amazing dish and has been excellent each time I've had it.

    Kind of a drive if you are coming from Galena, remote location. A little slower paced meal, but very good service. We had the charcuterie board, beef Wellington and barramundi. All very good and beautiful presentation. The tables near us really like their food as well.

    We ate there on the Memorial Day weekend and had, as usual, a really good time. This is a beautiful place, nestled in the hills overlooking the Mississippi River. It is not too far from Chestnut Mt. Resort where we stayed. I would say that Goldmoor is the top-notch restaurant for dining in the Galena area. We have eaten everywhere and nothing compares to this. This is not a casual place, rather somewhere you would go to for an 'occasion' or just to enjoy the best quality food, ambiance, and atmosphere. We live in downtown Chicago and Goldmoor sits right there with the best Chicago has to offer.

    Excellent entrees - I had the beef wellington - cooked to perfection wrapped a light bakery crust. Spouse had the salmon and the mushroom soup! Delicious. Service was good, cocktails - brandy old fashion was a bit on sweet side w too much grenadine - need to work on this drink. Host was very friendly, atmosphere relaxing with a great view. Wonderful place to dine which allows for conversations, quiet and relaxing pace - tables had nice space between them. Will definitely return.

    The food was excellent both in presentation and taste. Unfortunately when I found a plastic shred in my Chopped Salad and the restaurant failed to do anything beyond offer their apology and then deny using plastic in their kitchen…for this reason I will never eat there again. The plastic was small and sharp and made it into my mouth where I thankfully got it out before I could ingest it. I understand this could happen at anytime to anyone, and I am certain the restaurant had no role in intentionally placing the plastic in my food. What the restaurant failed to do however, was take accountability for inspecting their food for quality and for the safe consumption by customers. Had I swallowed the plastic I could have been hospitalized, and for this degree of risk I don’t feel the restaurant reacted appropriately regarding my experience.

    Beautiful location overlooking the Mississippi River with those views from all of the dining spots. Warm and welcoming service, including visits from the owner to check in and share details on the view. Everything about the meal from appetizers (short rib risotto and mussels), entree (Beef Wellington and NY Strip) to chocolate mousse for dessert was amazing. A wonderful visit - the first of many!

    My husband and I came here to celebrate Valentines Day. Upon entering we met with owner Slobo Radin, whom greeted us with a smile and great attitude. The ambiance was wonderful. Service was very pleasant and attentive. My husband ordered the beef wellington and I had the Amish chicken. Both were very flavorful. We also had creme brulee for desert and it was a 10. If you like great food, and beautiful ambiance the Goldmoore Inn is the place to dine in. We will definitely come back

    Excellent carrot salad to start. My husband didn't want any of the menu salads, so they made a special green salad for him with arugula, kale, and a vinaigrette dressing that he enjoyed. He also liked his Beef Wellington. My biggest issue was with their flounder. It clearly was previously frozen, which is a huge turn-off for me. The vegetable side was delicious, however.
