    Dined on 11/22/2014
    Chef Geoff's food is consistently good! This time we dined earlier than usual and were pleased to discover the three course special price for early diners. There were less guests too, so we could talk - and added bonus as it is often too noisy to enjoy the others at your table. Unfortunately, those who ordered the PEI mussels found quite a few empty shells in their dishes. Otherwise, the rest of the meals were outstanding, especially the chicken curry.

    When I want to meet up with friends in Virginia for lunch or dinner, Chef Geoff's near Tysons is usually the first place I think of - the food is always very good, and there is good variety - fine entree, artisan pizza, diet friendly salad or simple choice options, excellent burgers - something for everyone! Very good dining room for conversation, and valet parking if you want it. Who could ask for more - excellent dining experience - I will keep coming back!

    I work near here and had visited the bar a few times, but this was my first time coming for a meal. Service was slow, food was mediocre. There are several other good places in this price range nearby, such as Paladar and you'd be better off going to ine of these.

    Ordered the chopped salad for lunch. The kitchen should have been embarrassed to send it out. Iceberg lettuce (not even "chopped") with cherry tomatoes cut in half and some bacon. They forgot the dressing. And then when the waitress did bring the dressing on the side -- it was blue cheese. Even though I had asked for the salad with no blue cheese. If I hadn't been with a business associate, I would have asked for the manager. Instead, I had to just smile and pretend like it was fine. Seriously. So bad. So so bad. My 7 year old niece makes a better salad.

    My wife and I picked Chef Geoff's for a date night - and I have to say it was a good pick. One of my favorite things about the menu is that it is absolutely possible to engineer a very high quality meal for not a lot of money. However, we both ordered items from the upper portion of the menu price-wise, and feel like we good not only a great meal,but a good value. We split an appetizer, each had an entree and had room left for dessert. Our order looked like: 1. Modest bottle of wine - Milbrandt Traditions Reisling. This is a light wine, that was very accurately described by our waiter. A great fit to the meal we had planned - because we had a very good idea what we would order before we arrived. 2. Pork and Shrimp Dumplings - these are great, they are steamed to perfection, with a flavorful dipping sauce. They are more of a shu-mai style than the potsticker style if you are comparing to most Asian restaurants. 3. My wife had the Yellowfin Tuna entree, served rare. Not only was the tuna perfectly seared, but the noodles and ginger sauced with it made for a fantastic combination of flavors that married well together. 4. I had the Big Shrimp and Very Gouda Grits. When they arrived I could smell the smokiness of the cheese in the grits. The shrimp were huge, as promised, and served with andouille and vegetables atop the cheese grits, with a sauce reminiscent of etouffe. While my wife's Yellowfin was superb, I think this was actually the better entree. 5. We split the Apple Cinnamon Bread Pudding,with Salted Caramel Ice Cream. This was a great desert, it was big enough for two, but not so large that we had to throw in the forks half way through. The salted caramel ice cream is a great offset to the sweetness of the bread pudding and sauce. We will be back. Maybe to explore the other parts of the menu!

    Went to Chef Geoff's for restaurant week and enjoyed it the most of all the restaurants tried. Returned to celebrate a special event and was not disappointed . The choices were ample with something for everyone of every different age in my party. The food was well prepared and presented. I hope that this level of quality is maintained as it will surely be one of our favorites... and we are VERY selective!

    I expected more from this restaurant than we received. The food was just ok. Nothing special that I would go out of my way for. Food was not super hot and seemed a long time to get out of the kitchen. The service was not attentive once we got our food. Our waiter seemed to forget about us and did not refill water, get new drinks or coffee. They need to step up the food and the service.

    Our dinner guest has experienced some of the finest restaurants in the world, so we were extremely pleased when she offered unsolicited praise for both the wine list and the food quality. I was impressed with the precise coordination of the staff, as they anticipated our every need, without interruption or distraction. The ambiance was conducive to extending the event by lingering over desserts, coffee, and tea....which we certainly did. As we exited, my wife suggested that we return to this restaurant, soon....we certainly will.

    Our evening with friends at CG Tysons exceeded expectations. Food variety and preparation was above average for CG (especially its New Mexico Ave location) and was almost as good as Lia's. Service was excellent and our table, as requested, was sited so that we could have a relaxed evening of conversation. Prices were very good value. On the negative side, the pasta with Italian sausage and shrimp could have benefited from a marinara sauce rather than the plain red sauce, and the scallop plate looked very sparing - not much on it (good thing my friend had a salad beforehand). Desserts were well-appreciated all around.

    When I first stepped into the restaurant I was worried because it was so NOISY - but that's because you walk into the bar. The dining area was around the corner and was, thankfully, very quiet. The food was delicious: We started with the tuna tartare appetizer and loved the flavors and textures of the tuna w/ sesame oil, fried wonton wrappers, wasabi cream, ginger, and pickled cucumber. Everything that followed was also delicious but the tuna is what I keep thinking about! Also wanted to mention our waiter, Oz, who was exceptional - attentive but not obtrusive service, gentle demeanor - he was terrific and really timed our courses perfectly. Great experience.

    The highlight of my meal was the black bean pumpkin soup. The service was fair and the waiter seemed to be preoccupied. It was like he was trying to rush us out of the restaurant and/or he wasn't interested in serving us.

    I requested a table in a fairly quiet spot. They did the best they could. Two of our diners had the evening's special Salmon and thought it was terrible. I assume the restaurant can't do anything about the acoustics. All four in our party had to lean into and across the table to be able to be heard. So annoying. I can understand a loud bar scene....it's fun but once I'm at a table I want to be able to have a conversation. I couldn't even hear the waitress. My meal was good and the restaurant close but both men said they wouldn't want to come back.

    Chef Geoff's was decent, but for the price and stature of this restaurant, I expect more than just "decent." I could've gotten "decent" at TGI Fridays and paid half as much money for my meal. Food: I ordered my burger plain. Not a hard request, just burger and bun. It came out with cheese and all the fixings on it. I sent it back and instead of taking 10 minutes to make a new one the right way, they took the stuff off and re-seared it, so now my medium rare burger was well-done and tasteless. Service: It took over 10 minutes to get my server's attention for a refill. When she took the glass, it took another 10 minutes before I had to tell a manager to go fetch the drink. Also good luck finding the place. No signage on the road at all.

    Initially the experience was poor as the service was really slow; we didn't get to order our food until 15 min then didn't receive it for almost another 40 min. My dad didn't read the menu carefully so when his pepperoni pizza arrived w/ arugula & tomatoes he was very disappointed. However we were extremely impressed with Tom (he must have been a managerr) who insisted on ensuring we were happy with our food and overall experience. Despite my father fault for not reading the menu carefully Tom insisted on providing him wIth the traditional pepperoni pizza he wanted and insisted it was his job to ensure we the customers were happy. Tom saved our initially lackluster experience and made it great! We were impressed!

    We dined with another couple on the Saturday night of Homecoming. The food, as usual, was very good. There was a wide variety of selections, and suggested wine pairings. Our server was new (it was his first week), so the service wasn't as efficient as usual, but it did not dim our experience. Chef Geoff's is always a reliable choice for a fine meal in a friendly atmosphere.

    There were six in our group and everyone was pleased with the choice. We live in Maryland and Virginia, so Tyson's area is a good meeting place for us. We're always searching for a restaurant that will allow reservations, have an atmosphere that is pleasant where we are able to hear each other, and have good food. We were happy in every way. We had salads, chicken, pasta, and steak, and everyone was happy with their meal. I'm sure we'll go there again.

    Not much more to say, the new menu screams "It's Fall!" We tried the amazing Seared Duck Breast with maple-bourbon sweet potatoes, cabbage, raspberry-orange sauce and the Seared Scallops with parsnip puree, chanterelles, truffle butter sauce...let's just say I would have licked the plate if I had not been on a date with my wife unit. Not sure where we found room for the Apple Cinnamon Bread Pudding with salted caramel ice cream, but that was the perfect finish. Another excellent date night facilitated by the amazing folks at Chef Geoff's Tysons!
