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!

Went here with a colleague after days work. The steak offered here were exactly as we ordered and the sides were also good. We were not forgotten although there was one two other companies upstairs.

After having had one of the best steaks ever at Böff restaurant in Vilnius, we wanted to check out the Goodwin restaurant in Tallinn. The service was excellent. We felt very welcome from the first step, and during the evening the standard stayed the same. The person serving us had very good suggestions on what to eat and drink. We shared the 400g chateaubriand, and it was perfectly cooked. The cheesecake and the molten chocolate cake were both very delicious too. The house red wine was very nice. Even the location was perfect close to our hotel. It may have not been as good as Böff restaurant, but it came very close. If we ever decide to have a steak in Tallinn, we'll be going back to Goodwin.

Start with very good carpaccio and have as a warm meal tiger prawns and you'll get very good worth for the value. Service was just about average but would be easy to get it better, for example with selling more...

We went there with some of our foreign colleagues to have dinner. We were a group of four. One of the colleagues had seen an advertisement of this place and he was intrigued to go there. We arrived and were directed to our table and given menus. And that was it. We sat there 40 minutes without any attention from the staff! We could not even order drinks. During the 40 minutes staff walked by us several times but just ignored us and did not pay any attention to us. Not even to say that sorry we are very busy, we will be with you soon ... absolutely nothing. After 40 minutes we decided to leave ... it was getting late and we were hungry. We told the girl who greeted us and showed us to our table that it has been 40 minutes and no service, she started apologizing and said that this should not have happened ... but it did. She did not also offer us to stay and that was it. During that 40 minutes we had time to look around quite a bit and one disturbing thing besides horrible service was that staff did not take empty dirty plates and glasses to kitchen, but collected them all one table not far from us. Do not recommend, there are so many better places in Tallinn.

I was there with my boyfriend. We took the cruise from Stockholm to Tallinn and stayed at Tallinn for half day. We walked around in the old town and went into this restaurant accidentally. It was really nice.
We ordered Steak and ribs. Both of them were good and juicy. It was American style restaurant and they were really good at making steak!
