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!

Goldmoor definitely lived up to it's reputation and if you get a chance, make reservations and go there for dinner. The service was wonderful, the food outstanding and the wine was delicious. This is fine dining at it's finest!

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Goldmoor in while on a little get-away trip. Not the appetizer (bruschetta with crabmeat) and the entree were outstanding. We will go back anytime we are in the area.

We went here for our anniversary dinner. it was absolutely perfect. From the view outside to the inside decor. our dining experience couldnt have been any better. From the food to service, Perfect. Even making sure there wasnt too much sun coming in on us. We wanted the view so we left the shade open. Awesome!!

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.

Food and service were outstanding. Had the beef Wellington and salmon. The salmon was presented in a pastry, much like the beef Wellington. Had a pear crisp after dinner for a great ending. We will go back.

We were greeted by the owners, and led to our private dining room overlooking the Mississippi. We took pictures just as the sun was about to set. It was gorgeous
The Goldmoor is a beautiful, classic Inn, where each room is unique and fabulous.
Our meal was delicious and cooked to perfection. The Chef later came to greet us and inquired as to how we enjoyed our dinner.
I cannot say enough about the friendliness and quality of service we received! The owners, Slobo and Brigitte were the ultimate hosts.
I would highly recommend this restaurant, and would consider staying at the Inn as a guest.

Horrible experience that completely ruined our 30th anniversary dinner. Dry pork chop and 1/2 well done 1/2 raw beef wellington. This meal cost $130 and was a waste of our time and money. They tried to fix problem but made it worse, a very over done filet and didn't have food to eat until we were there for 1 hour and 20 minutes. My husband pretty much done eating by the time I got my "fixed" food. Only 2 other couples in the restaurant. Did not even take anything off of bill. I ate about 1/4 of my food as I was so upset, it was not really edible at this point, and you don't feel like eating after all this happens and your husband is done. On top of the bad experience all the extra time made us miss what we planned on doing afterwards.

Service was fast and way above the call of duty. Both the Chef and the Owner stopped by our table and actually asked questions and chatted. I had the duck and my wife had the salmon, both were amazing. I am a fan of duck and this was among the best I've ever had! Following the amazing meal, my wife and I sat outside on their adirondak chairs and watched the sunset... it was an amazing end to an amazing meal. I could not possibly recommend them higher.

What a wonderful meal in such a beautiful location. Dinner was excellent. My wife had the filet which was done perfectly. I had the pork chop and I wanted to just gnaw on the bones when I was done. The sides that came with the meals were also exceptional and not an afterthought. The view from the Goldmoor Inn, overlooking the sunset on the Mississippi River, is always great. And the service at the Goldmoor Inn is always so friendly. We love coming here.

Ordered Foie gras appetizer which was fine. Then ordered soup of the day for both of us and beef Wellington and said we were going to share. Waitress said there was an $8 shared plate charge which I didn’t feel was necessary with an appetizer and soups. Did give her a strange look but she still added $8 even after also ordering a dessert. Food was fine but there is a lot better in Downtown Galena. And to top it off my dessert was some sort of key lime pie thing that was basically two solid, hard as a rock graham crackers with key lime filling in the middle. Couldn’t finish it as it was kind of gross.

The initial contact with the hostess/front desk was standoffish and left my, now fiancé, and I feeling unwelcome. We had a reservation and were about 10 minutes early. She wasn’t at the desk when we arrived which happens and is no big deal. However she gave us a strern and questioning “Can I help you?” As if we were at the wrong place. I advised her of the reservation and she visibly annoyed said to hold on as she walked over to check her computer. She sat us without anything else said after that. The waitress was phenomenal when we mentioned we’ve never ate anywhere this fancy and likely didn’t know which fork to use first she smiled and assured us not to worry about it and that it’s outside in, or whichever fork we like that she wasn’t going to judge. The rest of the evening with our waitress was candid and appreciated by us. She made amazing menu recommendations and we tried soft shell crab and beef Wellington for the first time which were both amazing. I think it is worth mentioning I wore a dress shirt and dress pants and my fiancé was wearing a beautiful dress, so it wasn’t how we were dressed that justified the hostess attitude towards us.

A scenic drive from historic Galena to the picturesque setting of the Goldmoor. Fabulous meal. All four of us enjoyed the Beef Wellington. We had eaten here several years ago and enjoyed it but it is even better now. The setting is elegant with wonderful outdoor views. Had a nice visit with the owner and it is clear they are passionate about making a wonderful experience for each of their guests. Highly recommend!

We had a delicious dinner. The filet was very tender and flavorful. The salmon was excellent also. The pear crisp for dessert was fantastic. Definitely would go there again if we are in the area. The host was very friendly also. Scenic view and enjoyed watching all of the birds at their bird feeders.

The Chef at the Goldmoor is a gem! The food was absolutely wonderful and beautifully presented. My husband ordered the Beef Wellington and savored every morsel. I had the herb crusted salmon which was also very good. We couldn't resist the raspberry ruharb pie, which came in a large rectangle slice. The manager even brought my husband an extra scoop of ice cream. It was large enough to share and sooo good.

We also had the pleasure of dining here for breakfast. This is my husband's favorite meal to dine out and he wasn't disappointed! French toast was perfect and the Belgium waffles had wild blueberries on them! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Highly recommend!
