Like everything else at the Goldmoor, they set the bar pretty high with their dining room. We had Caprese, crab bruschetta and scallops: Caprese is allllll about the quality of the tomatoes. It was delicious. Goldmoor's twist on this classic dish is that the chef...More

The peach Bellini salad was amazing. We had it both nights. Filet very flavorful. Soft shell crab excellent. Beef Wellington good but very filling. Took half home. Only area for improvement is wine list which could be more extensive and mor by the glass choices.

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