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!

Had a good meal inside the restaurant. We could have a look at different choises of real meet to get a better understanding what is mignon, newyork steak etc. You cut the steak served to see if it is done ok before you accept it ( like you tase wine). The service was excellent, the place clean and fresh. I highly recommend the restaurant

Well, that was a great dinner at Goodwin, really. We had an XXL-steak and a Filet mignon; mashed potato with Dorblu cheese and grilled vegetables as side dishes; and a jug of wine. Goodwin sauce was perfect! The service was excellent and beef was delicious. I highly recommend the restaurant to my friends. It maybe a bit expensive but it is worth the money you pay.

Compliments to the chefs!! Steaks were very good, great quality and cooked with expertise. However, from the start the waiter had difficult taking care of us and the other tables outside. We figured okay he is busy and being in the restaurant industry myself I understand. Then when the orders were taken, we were a table of 4. Two took the rib-eye and two took the new york steak, the sides and sauces were tasty but it the waiter was so busy he brought our food on the big tray next to the table and informed us to 'just take our food, he is really busy.' The steaks went to the wrong people, I asked him to point out which steak was whose, different cooking temperatures and different cuts. He then pointed out whose was whose, however once we started eating it was all wrong. We weren't able to adjust it till some of the steaks half eaten! A shame because I know the kitchen does a great job, only to have it messed up like that!!

Our party of 4 looked forward to an excellent dinner given the previous positive reviews. Boy, were we disappointed. All 4 steaks (2 Rib Eye, 1 NY Strip and 1 Filet Mignon) were delivered totally undercooked - we returned them all but then we were served the hot sides and sauces, which by the time the steaks came back, were warm at best. To cap it all, one of our party then found a long wayward hair in his 'mash'. Food extremely poor given the Restaurants boast of 'fine' steaks and the significant cost. I would not dine at this restaurant again. On a positive note, the front of house staff were polite, efficient and handled the kitchen errors very well!
