Had a great meal. The service was prompt and friendly. Food was great. Went here for our 25th anniversary. When making the reservation I mentioned that it was a special occasion but there was no mention of it upon our arrival or during the meal.

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.

Beautiful location. Attentive service. Was there for my 50th. Only miss was that they didn’t bring a little birthday dessert.... not that it’s expected, but this was a 50th and dinner was very expensive. Food was excellent.

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 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.

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.

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.
