  • Thoroughly impressed by Tom!

    Dined on 10/23/2014
    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!

    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.

    Very vibrant and classy bar scene. Wide selection of draught beer and great food. Parking is a little bit of a walk, unless you want to use the Valet; if you self-park, watch for restricted parking spots or you will be towed. I just wish I didn't have to drive on Rt. 7 at rush hour to get here!

    I love this place for a business lunch. The menu choices are varied and all are delicious. Not the same old borring choices either. Seasonal menu. I had the crab cake with jalepeno tarter sauce - fabulous. Others had the pumpkin gnocchi and the fish tacos. Cant wait to go back! Surprised they dont think of it first but you can adk for a black napkin so as not to get white lint on your clothes.

    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!

    Service was good but food was average. Went for a special occasion and it was not memorable, just OK. Not a big deal but when leaving the valet brought the wrong car - kind of scary. Sure it was an innocent mistake but also was our dinner reservation.

    We love Chef Geoff's and consider it one of our go-to restaurants in the neighborhood. We had some service challenges last time and heard back from the manager who made things right with us and we were happy to return. The menu is great and full of options and the fried calamari is the best in the area!

    This was our first time at Chef Geoffs (Tyson's) in several years. It was a Sunday evening, and not at all busy. Though we were a couple, we were placed right next to two large families with children and crying babies, more for the servers' convenience than ours as it was hard to converse with both the noise from the families and the rather loud music. Our server was very attentive and clearly new at his job, but we were understanding of that. Our food was good, but not great, although my steak was perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The Caesar salad looked and tasted tired. The chocolate cake was excellent! The restaurant itself looks/seems a little tired or lost its edge compared to our last visit...maybe an off night.

    Deviled eggs with bacon appetizer was very tasty. Tired of the salad thing. Fish tacos for me and mussels for my guest. Tacos were excellent but too many of the mussels were empty without finding anything in the broth. A quick chat with the waiter who brought over the manager and voila a second serving brought on the house. We were impressed and happy to have this high level of service. The manager even accommodated us by changing the TV to a favorite sports program of ours. We were in close proximity to the bar. Good time! Place was very busy and yet the service was excellent. A bit loud.

    We went for Restaurant Week, which at Chef Geoff's means you can pick from the whole menu! It was terrific. We met our friends, Sam and Sally, there and they enjoyed everything they had as well. I had the Shrimp and Grits -- just yummy as always. Service was prompt but not overwhelming. Bartender was even able to make an acceptable "French 75" for me, which was refreshing and delicious. We sat outside because the weather was perfect. Who can remember when we have had such a mild August? By the time we left, about 10:30p, the entire restaurant inside and out was deserted. Tyson's folks must have a genetic need to go to bed early -- even on a Saturday night. We love chef Geoff's!

    Unlike other places that offer mediocre fare for Restaurant Week, Chef Geoff's let's you order anything off the menu for the RW price. So you truly get to sample the food, rather than going to a place that offers you stuff you'd never order in real time. Plus, the service, as susual, was solid and professional,mas it always is. Nice pacing to the meal. Attentive but not overbearing server who was quite helpful in discussing a couple of choices. This is a fine place at regular pprices; it is a wonderful steal at RW.

    Summer restaurant week had lunch here. Crispy calamari was really good as appetizer . It was ruby and crispy. Strongly recommend. Also had tuna tarter which was yummy. For main course, we ordered pan roasted salmon. The amount was really small and just tasted ok. After that, we had pineapple upside down cake which was strongly recommended by the wittier. It looked cute and I love the pineapple flavor which was not so sweet. Meanwhile the chocolate cheesecake just as good as it was. Anyway, the price was fair for lunch like this. Had good time and will come back next time!

    I've been to Chef Geoff's on more than one occasion (lunch/dinner, with small groups and with just 2). The bar offerings are great and the restaurant has a pretty decent happy hour menu. Unfortunately, if the bartenders have regulars, they tend to serve "as necessary" (not giving too much attention to other patrons). I had a late night dinner with a friend on a Friday night for restaurant week. Because of the location - most patrons are the business professional kind - so, it gets busy early and dies down quick. Their food is great and depending on what you get - sometimes worth the money. I recommend any of the seafood dishes minus the crab cakes... they were a little on the "crabby" side.

    Chef Geoff's in Tysons Corner always blows us away with how good the food is and the warm, professional service. We've been there for Restaurant week 3 years in a row and are always astounded by their entire menu being available. Portions are large enough that we couldn't make it through our entrees and ended up taking home desserts. Also, their in-house specialty cocktail selections were delicious and they make their own soda syrups. What's not to love?

    Friends and I decided to try Chef Geoff's during restaurant week for the first time. The restaurant offered three courses for a little over $35/person. My friends and I all ordered different appetizers so we could try different ones. All, from tuna tartar to calamari and dumplings, were excellent. For the main courses, steak and scallops were also fabulous. We also mixed up the desserts so we could try each. The chocolate cake was definitely the best. Service was fantastic. We requested a quiet table and were in luck at the begging, but around half way through our meal, the restaurant became more crowded and louder, becoming harder to hear my friend across the large table. Still, I can't wait to return to this restaurant

    Cheff Geof's allows you to pick your choice of 1st and 2nd course and dessert for Restaurant Week. Great options for diners. Sat outside, split 2 appetizers - beet salad and lamb flatbread. Both excellent. Split the fish tacos and Cuban sandwich. Fish tacos tasted a little too fishy but were still very good and guacamole with it was creamy. Cuban sandwich had quite a mustardy taste. Took some home and was even better reheated the next day. No matter which dessert you get, they're all good. Presentation of all dishes was superb. Not much to look at when sitting outside, but still prefer that to indoors for an afternoon meal.
