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.

We had a wonderful time at Goldmoor Restaurant!! I had the Beef Wellington and my husband had the Braised Lamb and they both were perfection! 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.

We picked the Goldmoor for its closeness to a Chestnut ski resort. Showed up for a late dinner after the slopes closed with our teenage sons. They’d held the kitchen open for our reservation so we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. The property is magnificent (we felt way under-dressed in post-ski attire, but they didn’t bat an eye!). An unexpected oasis of European elegance in a rural setting. The food was impressive. They handled one of our party’s food allergies with grace and creativity. The owners stopped by the table and were delightful (fun conversation but not hovering). It was a memorable meal! Cannot wait to go back as a couple for an intimate get-away.

This was our 5th time to dine at this wonderful eatery. It is located a few minutes outside of Galena but is well worth the small effort needed to get there. Friendly, quiet, atmosphere along with fine service and wonderful food. Just a note of caution, the Goldmoor is open only for the evening meal unless one is a guest in the resort.

Overpriced. $185 for 2 appetizers, 2 dinners, 2 waters and tip - NO alcohol. We’re from Chicago and prices were on the high end of Chicago prices. The food was good but not exceptional. The ambiance was sterile, nothing interesting.

The food was tasty, but the staff were running around and stressed out, despite the restaurant not being full. So while it tasted good, the experience wasn't very special and it was quite pricey.

We’ve traveled hours (7) each way for the fine food and service. The chef is tops and creative. Fresh and delicious cuisine.

Their view is outstanding. We always make arrangements for an overnight or two.

Don’t miss it. Outstanding for a get away or weekend stay.

We went to the Goldmoor Inn for our Anniversary and it was exceptional. The service and the food were fantastic. We sat at a table overlooking the Mississippi River and watched the perfect sunset. In fact, it looked like every table overlooked the River. I can't wait to go back. Next time, I would like to stay overnight there as well. Great Job!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Goldmoor Restaurant in September. This truly was a fine dining experience, but the pleasure went beyond the tasty cuisine. The wooded yet clear view of the Mississippi River was beautiful, and the setting sun made it even more spectacular. During our meal the owner, Slobo Radin, came up to our table to welcome us, and we had a brief but pleasant conversation. Slobo and his wife, Birgit, are very personable. As for the meal, my wife ordered filet mignon, which was grilled to perfection. I had Goldmoor’s classic Beef Wellington, which was delicious with an outstanding presentation. Yes, this is a pricey restaurant, but we received our money’s worth and more.

Our food was decent. My wife found her meal to be overly salty, my meal was very good. The cocktails we ordered were well prepared.

The view was very nice overlooking the Mississippi with a beautiful sunset.

The ambiance was a little too quiet for how close together the tables were. The music needs to be louder or there needs to be white noise pumped in, everyone could easily overhear each other’s conversations without any intention to.

Finally we were disappointed there was not bar for a pre or post dinner drink. There physically is a bar, but there were no bar stools and no bar tender.

Overall we enjoyed ourselves, but this is a bit more supper club than fine dining.
