Chef Geoff's (New Mexico Ave.)
Great place for American UniversityA regular place for people from AU to meet for lunch or dinner.
Noisy, but jolly atmosphere.
Good wine, decently priced.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day dinner locationChef Geoff's was an excellent choice for our Mother's Day celebration. We were a party of 10, and the servers were very friendly and on time. The location is nice, and we enjoyed the large windows overlooking a patio. The food was excellent, and we were very pleased with the generous variety of veggie entrees. Will definitely come back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough we have dined atAlthough we have dined at Chef Geoff's previously on more casual occasions, we chose this restaurant for our graduation celebration dinner. It could not have been better - the food quality was outstanding, service impeccable and the server's recommendations were spot-on. We never felt rushed, the timing of food and drinks was perfect. We also had a small child with us, the staff was very accommodating. This was the perfect choice for our special day, a perfect choice for any day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Reliable for Good FoodI go to Chef Geoff's frequently because of the variety and quality of food options. The Sunset Special of 3 courses for $19.95 if you order before 6:30 is an incredible value. My food is always very tasty. The service is very crisp, the staff friendly. It is always a good experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm & Welcoming + Delicious FoodAs always, the food was delicious, esp. the pasta dishes. They accommodated us quickly with a great table even though it was a very busy night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYummI've been to Chef Geoff's several times for happy hour, but went recently for the first time for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the bread was delicious. The service was OK - the waitress forgot one person's salad and another side dish so we had to ask again. Probably because the restaurant was too busy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFrequent diner not disappointedAs usual, our Chef Geoff''s dining was most satisfying. Sunset Special remains a great deal. Our server, who was completing her training that night, was superb. Friendly, knowledgeable, timely. The only hitch was that the parking attendant refused to honor the "free parking" stamp and charged us when we left.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, servic, and atmosphereHad a very pleasant Sunday morning brunch. Food and service were both great. We were not rushed and continued to visit with our friends after brunch indoors at an outside table. Spend about 2 hours eating and visiting. Highly recommended!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and hot.WaitersFood was delicious and hot.Waiters were very polite and responsive. Like sunset specials.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME!Absolutely LOVED our server I wish I could remember his name, but I went with a couple of friends a couple of days ago and he was the sweetest to us, making us laugh and being extremely kind. I have to admit that other times we have gone it wasn't as great a little to crowded, but they seated us on the top level this time and the spacing was great! Definitely going back!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIt pleases again and again.Very attentive to foods allergies. Servers are always pleasant. Patio is gorgeous.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll Try One More Time #shortleashThe califlower bisque was bland, the bistro burger was ordered medium; however received well done, same for the steak, and the sweet potato fries were mushy.
On the plus side, the service was impeccable and the special appetizer(a spinach dip) was top notch. The wine list and beer selection were solid as well.
The menu had so many options it was tough to hone in on my order; however I will try Chef Geoff's again because I want to believe the food is good and we just made a bad order on a busy night.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI find that I am drawn moreI find that I am drawn more and more to Chef Geoff's and my friends are beginning to appreciate its variety both in the food and the libations. I hope it stays as good as it is.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLove their menu! So many interestinLove their menu! So many interesting and different choices!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance is pleasant,The ambiance is pleasant, the food usually very good. Service is impeccable and the servers are helpful and knowledgeable. At times, it can get fairly noisy, which is not a plus for me, but the restaurant is near American University, and the bar scene can be raucous. That is not always the case, but it is annoying when it gets loud. I do not drink, so cannot comment on the "bar scene." Also, I am older, and not into that scene, but the younger group seems to enjoy it. Overall, I eat here fairly frequently, and am usually glad I did.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very nice meal andWe had a very nice meal and our server was very attentive despite the packed restaurant. The tables are a little close together and the noise level makes it hard to talk. We had a group of 7 so it didn't bother us but it is not the place for a romantic dinner. I think an expansion of the dining room should be on their to do list. Food was fantastic as always. It is my go-to place when visiting my daughter at American U.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a fun place withThis was a fun place with a variety of food choices.

A great changing menu. Fun atmosphere. If you haven't been you've missed something3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Salads!We stopped in for an early dinner on a weekday and found Chef Geoffs was already hoppin! They have a very popular happy hour, especially given its proximity to American University. All 6 of us ordered salads, some with soup, and it was all delicious. The kale salad was especially tasty, with a nice crunchy texture. Service was very friendly and attentive. We would definitely go back!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPeter S. Stony Brook, NYWe had another fantastic meal at Chef Geoff's for Brunch on Palm Sunday.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Geoff Is My D.C. DestinationAfter a terrific happy hour experience, my sister and I returned for Sunday Jazz brunch. The ambiance was impressive. Beautiful people everywhere. Two jazz players played wonderful songs like "Georgia on My Mind." A couple even got up and danced, which my waiter told me was a first.
The food, the food was scrumptious! I ordered chicken and waffles with apple compote. My sister got the Brie French Toast. As usual, we split the two and shared. I was in love with both dishes. Sweet and savory get me every time. They also have a special where you can get any entree with mimosa or juice for only $21.95, that's a major deal. The service was really expedient; I hadn't finished my fruit and muffins before the entrees were presented.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food at Reasonable priceI made reservations after reading reviews on Open Table. We enjoyed the Madras Curried Chicken, Mac and Cheese, and pizza. Don't remember exact names of dishes but they were all very good. Nice variety of food on menu.Service good but did take a long time to place our order on a busy Fri night. Bread brought to our table after a wait and then only 3 pieces for 4 people. Tables were close so tight and crowded with a fairly high noise level but I didn't expect this to be an intimate and quiet place either just adding this for others to know. Staff friendly and food was good. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an above average meal at a good price.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a delightful meal.It was a delightful meal. Our waitress was a doll even though she was very busy. I always enjoy the wonderful pasta dishes. We sat in a cozy booth which seemed more quiet.Can't wait for the warm weatehr so we can sit outside!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendliest, best serviceFriendliest, best service around. Best burger in DC. Lots of great choices, but I always love the salmon preparations.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food & service were veryThe food & service were very good. My brother & husband both ordered a beet arugula salad & both came with hardly any beets. We brought it to the attention of 1 of the managers who was close by & he apologized. Within 1-2 minutes, someone came out with 2 portions of beets. I will definitely go back.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI have eaten here many timesI have eaten here many times before and as usual, the food was excellent. The service was very friendly and quite capable.
