Description: The GOODWIN Steak House is the only classic American steakhouse in the Baltics and Scandinavia. A team of professionals used steakhouse traditions and their own first-hand experience to create the first restaurant of its kind in Estonia. We have studied the concept for many years in the US and Australia, the countries of origin of steak production and cooking culture; the countries where steakhouses are national symbols – which is why we are proud to offer an authentic American Steakhouse with all the appropriate attributes. We opened our first restaurant in Tallinn in March 2009, eager to share our passion for steaks. According to GOODWIN’s philosophy, steakhouse culture is based on three main principles: the cult of beef, the cult of wine and the cult of guests. The cult of beef is an expert approach to steaks, from beef selection to cooking technology. The cult of wine includes professional wine selection: we know everything about wines and offer those perfectly suited to our steaks. The cult of guests is the basis of our hospitality. We know and love our guests, and we create the most comfortable environment for them. Guests enjoy everything in GOODWIN – meals, dinks, music, service, and the open and friendly environment. And we are sure that having once tried what we were able to achieve, you will become a true admirer of real steaks and will hence be our true friend! You are very welcome!

During a Cruise with a stop in Tallin we had lunch at Goodwin. Excellent steak but actually a bit better in their sister restaurant in Helsinki.

“Awesome service and steaks”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Very good steaks and awesome service. All plates came on time and after previous dish. Quite expensive for Tallinn restaurant, but worth it. Somebody has reviewed service, but it depends a lot of waiter/waitress. Higly preferred!

“Probably the best steaks in Tallinn”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

The restaurant looks a bit fancy with a bull "sitting" on a bench outside, but inside it has the feel of a genuine steak house. The menu is primarily around steaks and they are GOOD, so you can order the filet rare if you like them that way. They also have a steak tartar that is very very good.

Service is "estonian" - no smiles but reasonably attentive staff. Prices are high but worth it.

With more beer choices and smilier service, it would have rated an "excellent".

“Nice enough steak, lacking in service”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Party of four. Had a reservation, which on a Saturday evening turned out necessary due to restaurant filling up fast at dinner time. Orders taken promptly, drink service fast.

Steaks cooked as ordered. NY steak was a nice enough piece of beef. Lacking in salt, probably due to no sauce accompanying steak as per my request. Nice sea salt would be welcome, now just regular table salt available at the table. Side of cream spinach was forgettable.

Service went downhill after the entrees, taking dessert orders took ages and coffee delivery even longer. No cream served with coffee. After requesting some got a jug of milk. Overall just an ok experience, would look at other options due to inflated pricing.
