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!

This is truly fine dining. From the amazing views, excellent service and plush surroundings to the truly amazing food, the Goldmoor delivers in every way. We spent a relaxing evening watching the sunset and enjoying the variety of culinary delights. The Sicilian flatbread appetizer is just right - not overloaded with cheese - and has plenty of flavor. The signature... More
