I try to visit this place couple of times a year and I have to admit, it has still remained my favourite place to have steak. The service is first class just as it always has been.

Good and fast Service. The meat was really tender and held over all a high quality. The atmosphere is not the most amazing, but got really surprised of the quality of the meat.

Really good fillet! Tender, juicy and perfectly cooked. As you get it the very kind waiter tells you "please cut it to check if it had been cooked as you wished" and it was the case! Just one draw back: the price. A bit too expensive. A big fillet and a hamburger, two beers, 100 €.

Steaks was good. We asked some water with food and wine. From the check i noticed that the bottle of water cost 8€!!! Normal restaurant price for bottle of water in Estonia is max 2 €.

What could have been a great dinner with friends went disaster. Our waiter crushed one of our red wine glasses as he served the main course and made a brief excuse leaving us with stained clothes, no compensation for the spilled wine and cold food due to the cleaning of the spill. I would consider any other option than this... More

Food is nice, waitresses are angry and weird. If you don't order expensive steaks they get angry. Such a big negative for a good restaurant.

I have visited Goodwin several times and meat is amazing there! We usually have visited with a large group of friends (up to 40-50 people) and they still manage to cook and serve the meat perfectly. Well worth the money. Thank you!

Courteous welcome. Food good but no more. Prices at the level to be expected for city-centre restaurant in prime location. Steak & wine were not cheap, but in keeping with the type/location of restaurant. 70cl Bott of sparkling water €8, espresso €5.50 both a bit steep in my opinion. Payed by cash, with no comment to "keep the change", which... More

A really lovely restaurant and very well laid out. The food is very good (the steak is stunning). The men decided to have a T-bone steak and the waiter brought out the steaks for the men to choose. The sides and desserts were also very good. The house wine? Not so much. Although the service and food were good, it... More

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!
