The food is as usual, great and fresh, with seasonal shifts and twists. I love it every time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA constant gem!I am a frequent diner at Chef Geoff's Downtown. The dining experience is always outstanding -- and most enjoyable. The service is always phenomenal and the food is excellent. I am a loyal customer now!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThe food and service were great, as always. I've dined there a number of times, and never been disappointed. I would recommend it to anyone looking for good food and drink with a good variety on the menu.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Work EventsHad a nice going away lunch for 8 and was able to get in and out within an hour-great service and good food. More vegetarian options would be nice, but they have a bean burger as well as pizzas. Look out for early in the week specials on food all day (and happy hours the rest of the week). Overall a very solid neighborhood choice for a sit-down restaurant. Happy hour can be very crowded but they have good food and drink specials.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were looking for a restaurantWe were looking for a restaurant downtown at the last minute, and Chef Geoff's was able to accommodate us -- which turned out to be a wonderful find.

The service was excellent (from the reservations desk throughout), and we received our food and dessert swiftly. The quality of the food was fabulous! I don't remember the waiter's name, but he was excellent! You can share this comment with him by tracking the servers on Friday, April 26th. My reservation was at 12:30 p.m., and we were seated at table 10.

We will be back4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was excellent.Our experience was excellent. Our server Josh was knowledgable and attentive. He asked if we were attending a show after diner and receiving our affirmative reply Josh ensured that our meal was delivered at an appropriate pace (we had an early reservation) but that we were finished at just the right time. The food was excellent. Calamari as good as I have been served in New England. The Saffron Risotto and Sesame Encrusted Tuna were prepared to perfection. We tried Geoff's riff on "Pimms Cup" and that too was most enjoyable. Going to the Warner Theater or another nearby venue? Try Chef Geoff's Downtown for an excellent pre-show meal.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMrecognized we were meetingrecognized we were meeting for a quiet business lunch, the hostess seated us in the quiet room, the waiter paid close attention to the pace comfortable to us, each course arrived efficiently exactly as ordered, food was hot, tasty, and as envisioned, drinks were replenished as needed and appropriate, and the price of the experience was right4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for dinner and brunchEnjoyed a wonderful brunch. I've had dinner - super there, too - and now brunch. Terrific restaurant. Great food and service4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was somewhatOur experience was somewhat limited as we stopped in after a theater show and only had a quick late dinner. The menu is perfect for that as they have everything from light appetizers to salads and sandwiches to full entrees. We chose to have just an entree. We had the chicken and the duck entrees and both were excellent. The service was excellent although we had limited meals. We were treated as well as if we had chosen a four course meal. We were very impressed for our first time and look forward to visiting again,4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNormally I've been there forNormally I've been there for the happy hour specials which a amazing but if you want a guaranteed great dinner I'd definitely recommend chef geoffs. Their menu has a wide variety of dishes that it's easy to please everyone.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious andThe food was delicious and they were very quick. We said we were running late and they brought our food very fast.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place with adequate food.Our waitress was great! The food was fine, nothing to brag about. The menu was promising but the entrees were a bit bland. The atmosphere was fun. A solid place to go but nothing mouth watering so to speak.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accommodating!We were 40 minutes late for our reservation, due to Cherry Blossom Festival traffic and closed roads. The staff was very gracious, seated us right away and expedited our dinner so that we didn't miss our play.
The food was excellent, as usual. I love the Shrimp and Very Gouda Grits.
This restaurant is a reliably pleasant pre-theatre experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great spot to goThis is a great spot to go with or without a reservation - they always find room, and no long waits. It's especially nice that you can sit in the high-top bar area and get the same great service as in regular seating. The menu changes fairly often. I'm finding that there aren't very many appetizing choices for me on the latest menu, but I'll go back in a little while and hope that the menu has changed again! Our server was new - said he'd been there 3 days - but he was very good - solicitous without intruding on our conversations, happy to answer questions, and knowledgeable about the menu items. Good experience.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwe were going to an eventwe were going to an event across the street at the Warner, and the staff were very good about seating us on time, and quick, attentive service.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMReally lovely post-CherryReally lovely post-Cherry Blossom Race brunch. Great atmosphere and runners and family alike felt welcome!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner SaturdayWe enjoyed our dinner Saturday night. We dined at Chef Geoff's last year before the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler and found the food and wine to be as enjoyable as last year. There is enough variety on the menu to please everyone and we always make room for the dessert special. The Mediterranean Trio hummus appetizer is our favorite and the crabcake sandwich was full of meat not filler. We shared the wild mushroom and veggie pizzas, both of which were light and non greasy. We look forward to going back again next year :)4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendI use Open Table all the time and MOST OFTEN for reservations at Chef Geoff's Downtown. Monday they surprised me with a celebration to thank me for my 300th reservation via Open Table. It was a very festive occassion and was much appreciated.
I choose Chef Geoff's because the hosts and wait staff (especially Gino) are always welcoming and friendly and exceptionally accommodating for me and any colleagues or guests I bring there. The menu is perfect because there is something for everyone!
I highly recommend Chef Geoff's for lunch and dinner.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING BRUNCHThe Easter brunch was AWESOME!

We enjoyed both. Our server was knowledgable and fun. He recommended an inexpensive bottle of wine that was terrific, and they got us in and out quickly so we could make our show.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne great mealAbsolutely fantastic. My girlfriend got the mushroom ravioli and I got the steak; both were terrific. We went for our anniversary, which may seem like an odd choice (I can tell that it's a busy, semi-loud place on weekdays after work) but she's an easygoing lady and it turned out to be an excellent choice. Many, many stars.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Chef Geoff'sWe have been to Chef Geoff's twice before and wanted to take our family there to celebrate our son's 18th birthday. Jo, our server, was so accommodating and wonderful to our whole party. The only problem is that she was clearly covering too many tables...we had to wait for various things throughout the meal including our check for 10 minutes when we were ready to go. Not her fault, just the situation.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great for ourEverything was great for our birthday party of 6.

The space itself is pretty corporate (dark wood s and clean lines.) The service was excellent, with the food coming out with decent timing. Nothing special from the bar, but the quality of our meal made up for tat shortcoming.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting food well prepared.Interesting food well prepared. Portions were ample.
