A word from Chef Geoff's Rockville
The newest Chef Geoff's restaurant is the go-to destination on the Pike. Located across from Montrose Crossing, Chef Geoff's Rockville is the perfect spot for a business lunch or family dinner in a friendly and energetic atmosphere. Only minutes from the Strathmore, we're the perfect location for pre-theater dining. A three course Sunset Special is offered daily from 4-6:30 pm for $23.95. Need a break from work? There is no better place than our newly renovated bar for all-day happy hour Monday and Tuesday. Or join us for our ever-growing Bacon Bar on Wednesday and Thursday where we truly believe bacon goes great with everything. Have a case of the Mondays? We have the solution with ½ price bottles of wine every Monday. We are excited to finally be a part of your neighborhood and hope that you will come join us soon. Cheers! Chef GeoffContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "My daughter chose Chef Geoffs for her family birthday celebration. We went on a Sunday evening so seating was not an issue, even for six. Our waiter was perfect...friendly, funny, and a natural! We liked that it was easy for him to interact with our six year old grandson. We had three apps, plantain chips, fried pickles, chile lime calamari. All were so tasty and fresh. We all ordered something different and each of us were very pleased. Shrimp dishes were full of shrimp...imagine. My daughter ordered the mussels and the bowl was overflowing. Desserts were just the right size and wonderful. This is now one of our top choices."

  • "The food experience at Chef Geoff's in Rockville has been on the decline. They removed my favorite appetizer (the risotto balls) and the actual risotto dish I had was lacking in flavor and the texture was rather gummy. Even my dessert was disappointing. I had the pineapple upside down cake which was extremely dense."

  • "We ate at the Bethesda Chef Geoff's while attending a gathering nearby. We found the food to be very good (including dessert) and the prices reasonable for a semi upscale restaurant. The service could have been a bit better but overall we left with a good impression of the restaurant. Menu offerings had something for everybody."

  • "We ordered Fish tacos and Crabcake sandwich. Both were rather tasteless and absolutely unremarkable. This definitely is not a place to have seafood. In addition, I ordered regular fries on a side and they were among the worst fries I ever had. Greasy, almost burnt, too salty - how hard is it to make decent fries? I don't think we'll go there again."

  • "Great for a birthday celebration. Menu was varied and service was impeccable. Must try the salmon burger with sweet potato fries. The burger was light and well seasoned -- huge portion!. Seven people in our birthday party shared the do not hole dessert with special dapping sauces -- delicious!!!"

  • "We met friends here for lunch and all ordered something different. Each person enjoyed what they had and the service was good. It appeared we had a trainee as a waitress and a more experienced person was with her most of the time. Maybe this is one reason we had such great service. Will definitely return."

  • "Our waiter did a great job of seeing to our needs and getting my wife to accept a birthday dish at the end of the meal. The pizza was different, in a good way, the mussels predictable in a very good way. Dessert of pineapple upside down cake was fantastic."

  • "Chef Geoff's is a welcomed non- chain restaurant addition in Rockville. We have been to the other three Chef Geoff's locations, but this was my first time at the Rockville location, my wife's second. We went for a Saturday night early dinner about 6. It has something for everyone. The food was very good, the servers were enthusiastic, helpful and friendly. The decor and ambience were more than very good, the value was very good and all of these combined made for a really pleasant dining experience. While there is nothing among the area locations that beats New Mexico Avenue's outdoor dining when weather permits, the Rockville location is a nice second and has a menu with broader selection. We will surely return to this restaurant.."

  • "Service was poor. Staff attempted to deliver entrees before appetizer. Waitress was timid and seldom seen. Busboy reached across table to pour water and remove dirty dishes. Problem appeared to be one of training. Food was good, but I cannot recommend this restaurant due to poor service. Manager/Maitre d'hotel apologized for service mix-up and asked what he could do to fix it, but I didn't want a free dessert; I want them to fix their service problems which appear to be systemic."

  • "Gaspacho ..weird watermellon/tomato that tasted like spiced apple...not bad but? Spa juice cocktail very bad..NO cucumber taste just reams of mint and no citrus or taste spritz of any other type..bah. Food LOVELY otherwise and service excellent...wait staff all welcoming and effcient."

  • "The service was excellent; the food was good, though my steak was over cooked. I asked for medium, it was served well. But, I'm not a complainer... It was my date's 1st time at Chef Geoff's, and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I've been a few times previously. It was my least favorite meal, but I'll return eventually to enable the Chef Geoff chefs to redeem themselves."

  • "Good food, poor service. Server should've bothered to look our way, as he would've seen us raising our hand several times to signal we were ready to order, 20 minutes is an excessive wait."

  • "Nice to have a neighborhood restaurant that pays attention to details especially in regards to attention paid to returning patrons. The food of course is very well prepared."

  • "Had a 6 pm reservation for 5. The menu was not very clear as to what was in the various items and the waitress was NOT very helpful when asked what was in several on the Summer Specials. She said the descriptions were on the menu , you'll need to look them up and left! Once ordered, food was served promptly, rolls placed on the table, water served --- HOWEVER, some food was good some bad. Three ordered burgers, two were COLD and one was just right. Fries were very salty. While I had a GREAT meal there last time I was there, this was 180 degree change. No wonder the place in Rockville was not packed like Houston's used to be on a Saturday night or any night for that matter. I'll think long and hard before I return, so sad!!! Sorry Chef Geoff"

  • "I am impressed by the food every time I dine at Chef Geoff's. This is a go-to restaurant when friends & family come visit. I LOVE the risotto dishes & look forward to trying the new seasonal variety. The last time I ate here it was unusually quiet, especially for a Friday night, which was a bit disappointing to me because I like seeing a full crowd of people enjoying the food."

  • "Based on my recommendation our group of eight met for dinner on a Saturday night at Chef Geoff's Rockville. I had been to Chef Geoff's Rockville on previous occasions for lunch and suggested it to friends based on location, parking, to support fellow Hoya Chef Geoff, and fairly good past experiences. Service was spotty. While our water glasses were kept full, requests for this and that (cocktail sauce for crabcakes, splenda for coffee, etc) were not handled well. On the plus side, our group was never rushed and we enjoyed our evening of conversation and memories. And that's the reason we got together in the first place."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We have been looking for a location for a Sunday brunch and it looks like Chef Geoff's will be our first thought. We had three different brunch specials - all were tasty and pleasing to look at, and well worth their price. They have some outdoor tables, and a room that can be used for a large group. Parking was not a hassle."

  • "We chose this place for Father's Day brunch and we were pleased. Lots of space and seated quickly. Service wasn't as prompt as I would have liked, but not terrible. A longer than expected time for simple beverages and cheddar biscuits. Eggs Benedict with crab cakes, breakfast burrito and blueberry pancakes were all wonderful, flavorful and nice portions. French toast unfortunately was undercooked and very soggy. Brunch was overall nice and would recommend, lots to choose from on menu."

  • "I was expecting to be wowed and brought a big party for brunch, but I make a better frittata than what I was served, which was rather bland and mostly egg with tiny bits of what tasted like italian sausage than spanish chorizo. Waiter was not swift either and had to be reminded several times of things we needed. Had better brunch in other places - like Filomenas."

  • "We ate at the Chef Geoff's downtown location a few weeks ago and were blown away. The place was PACKED and while noisy (understandable), the service was spot-on and the food was excellent. I was very excited then to go to lunch on Father's Day at the Rockville location but that turned disappointing quickly. First, we did not know that the full menu would not be available - we purposefully went after noon to be out of the brunch mode but evidently didn't go late enough. Then when we were seated, it probably took 10-15 minutes before any waiter even approached the table-this wasn't even our waiter but one apologizing for our waiter not being there. The food was good but the limited menu and poor service has us headed back downtown next time."

  • "Think the title say' sit all. What it doesn't say is how the experienced staff stepped up and filled the gaps for the trainee. We were brought the wrong appetizer, experienced staff brought out the right one with the wrong appetizer on the house. Our dinner rolls arrived very late and were brought to us by another waiter, with refills of our drinks. My husbad's food had the wrong fry order, and his salad came out the his main meal. This was my first experience with Chef Geoff's and it was not the best food experience especially considering it was Father's Day. However, the food was great and we will go back, just not on any special occasion. Luckily for the trainee the experienced staff had her back."

  • "I took my adult family to Chef Geoff's for fathers day (I paid the bill, its what fathers do), and had another excellent meal, enjoyed the potato trout, pork loin, and fish tacos. My adult son was impressed by the beer list."

  • "We ate dinner and lunch on two separate occasions within 4 days at this location. Our dinner was outstanding - both food and service were terrific. Our kids had fillet medallions and grilled salmon, both on the kids menu. I was impressed, as were they. For lunch, we had great food, but not so great service. This was a celebratory (birthday and graduation), so the less-than-stellar service only added to my stress. The lack of consistency in the service between my two meals was notable. I hope that this can be addressed."

  • "Our first visit to Chef Geoff and it was fine. Very Good service from Benjamin and his trainee, but the food was a bit oversold. Appetizers were a bit disappointing, especially for the cost. Main dishes were better - the chicken cutlet was good but didn't come with the sides described on the menu. Would go back but would just sit at the bar."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The food was great. Our only issue was with service. We were seated for about 5 to 10 minutes when the hostess came over and apologized for no one waiting on us. She took our drink orders and brought them to our table. We waited another 5 minutes for so and still no waiter. My wife went to the hostess station to say something when a waiter finally came and asked if we had been waited on. After that everything was fine but it was my wife's birthday so I was disappointed in the wait. The food more than made up for the wait. Everything was great. Love the risotto gouda balls and the seared scallops (my entree) was awesome! We ordered the maple bacon cupcakes for dessert. They were the bomb!"
