This intimate restaurant has fabulous views from any table and outstanding meals! Each one is individually prepared by their own master chef who turns his passion for food into a delectable art form.

Our recent stay and dining experience was on Friday, October 28, 2016, with a seating in Chef Carlos's kitchen! It was a surprise for my husband for our 29th anniversary, and is an additional $50 to sit in the kitchen. A huge royal table was set up with large comfy chairs facing the chef and his kitchen. We enjoyed spiced... More

Four of us were in Galena for a wonderful weekend! Our friends had been to the Goldmoor previous and highly recommended! We made an online reservation for dinner! This is an Inn with beautiful accommodations! We only came for the dinning experience but got information for future stay! The trip from Galena to the Goldmoor was beautiful and very rural!... More

2nd review of the same place because management responded to our review. They state that they took off 50% of our bill. That is completely false and impossible. They would not recognize nor acknowledge that anything was wrong with my beef Wellington. I realize it is one of their most popular dishes but when it is bad, it is bad.... More

Well, if you have never been to the Goldmoor, make the effort. It is truly a gem. The views are fantastic, the service is excellent and the hosts are delightful. Then of course, you have the food which is simply over the top!

Dinner was elegant. My husband had the filet mignon and I had the beef wellington. Both were delish and they set us up at a table with a nice view and even told us to feel free to step away and watch the sunset. It was perfect!

We have not been to the Goldmoor in a couple years for dinner. There is new ownership and management and this is now the best restaurant in Galena. The owners could not have been more attentive and the food and service were excellent. This is back on our must return often list for restaurants in Galena, IL.

Truly a fine dining experience. It is so difficult to get the pastry and steak done perfectly. Outside of a major metropolitan city, it is nearly impossible to get a good Wellington. My wife and I have high standards when it comes to dining. They nailed it at the Goldmoor!
