The restaurant is small and cozy. Very clean and wonderful staff. The food we had was fantastic, beef wellington so tender and wonderful flavor.

Goldmoor definitely lived up to it's reputation! Food was delicious (and a new fall menu), service was excellent and the wine was outstanding! The grounds are beautifully maintained, it is a special spot. Out in the middle of nowhere but worth the trip!

My understanding is that they close on Thanksgiving and Christmas so that staff can be with their families.
