Diner Reviews
  • "Geoffrey's ("don't make the mistake of calling it "Jeffreys"...it's pronounced "Joffreys"!) is an amazing combination of singular ambience, stunningly good and creative food, and top notch service where every guest is the business of everyone on the wait staff. It has a much higher percentage of outdoor tables for dining to take advantage of the amazing coastal views than most restaurants of its type. It's a find and a gem not to be missed for any occasion."

  • "While the view was spectacular, the food was fine. The menu was ambitious, prices high for what was served. The service was attentive."

  • "Took my husband for his 50th Birthday. The hosts and bartenders were friendly and more than accommodating. Once we were sat, that is where it went downhill quickly. Our server must have been double sat because we did not receive silverware/napkins for 20+ minutes. When I asked the bus person to help he said "your server will get it". The water we requested was also not delivered for quite some time and it was an exceptionally hot day. I requested another roll as mine was cold having sat for 20 minutes with nothing to eat it with. Finally our order was taken. The food was average at best. We ordered a bottle of wine and it too was not worth the 300% mark up. The only time our server gave US time was presenting the bill. Not again."

  • "Had a beautiful table overlooking the ocean. Food was really good & the waitress was attentive & polite. Worth the drive."

  • "Not sure if you're paying for the privilege of outdoor dining in Malibu or the prestige of just being at the restaurant but if either is important to you then it's worth a visit. We had brunch and the food was average. Also if you don't specifically request a table with a view you'll be stuck in a corner which would make the entire experience even more overpriced."

  • "First of all, view and ambience are very, very nice. The service is friendly, fast, attentive. The wine list has several options for every taste, with fair prices (and with a fair range of prices as well). Food is delicious, served in decent size, with beautiful presentation. First class, for sure. The scalops and shrimps were perfectly cooked."

  • "Some of our favorite waiters must have left for newer restaurants in the area, because our server today was nice but inept. Angelo either never put our orders in or someone forgot to deliver them, none-the-less, two items never arrived. Angelo offered up "sorry 'bout that" and right before the bill arrived, he gave us a comp glass of wine and paid for our valet. Nice recovery but really would have enjoyed the wine I ordered WITH THE MEAL. None-the-less, day boat scallops are excellent here. The view fabulous and environment relaxing. We hope Angelo has better days ahead."

  • "I've celebrated my birthday here two years in a row. First, was a romantic dinner for two at sunset, and second was a late lunch with friends. The view from the dining area is breathtaking and the menu is varied. Champagne began the festivities. The food was delicious: quinoa and vegetable salad, butternut squash soup, scallops, flat iron steak, and eggs benedict. Our fresh apple tart served with vanilla ice cream on the side was perfect with an accompanying espresso. The only fault was the service. We were seated before the table was set. The waiter was slow to arrive and took his time in offering drinks. During the meal, he was attentive, so we were pleased over all."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The restaurant is great and well arranged with tables outside with some under cover. The staff were very helpful and smiling; but the service was not up to the standard I would expect for the price paid. Items were forgotten, the wine glasses were not filled for us, all small items which normally make for a smooth running restaurant. We nevertheless had a great evening, and were glad we came there."

  • "Went on a Sunday evening had a great table outside with a perfect view of the Pacific. The service was attentive and helpful in explaining the options on the menu. The food was great and just the right amount; not an overabundance portion size nor too small. The fish was fresh as were the salad greens and everything was well prepared and seasoned. We had the swordfish (cooked perfectly and not dry); sea bass flakey and tender and the chicken, wonderful flavorful stuffing and sauce. I brought some family here who were visiting from NJ and they had a great time and thought the meal was fabulous along with the view!"

  • "First off Dee-Dee our server provided us with over the top service. Not only was she friendly, knowledgable of the menu items and nice , she was also prompt and pleasant to interact with. I have never had service this nice before. Thank you again Dee-Dee! (Hope I am spelling her name correctly)"

  • "Just visiting Malibu and count ourselves lucky to have found this place. Great ambience, great outdoor dining overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We especially enjoyed the scallops on lobster risotto - wow! Food and service impeccable - thanks!!!!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We arrived right at 11:30 when the restaurant opened and were seated promptly on the rail facing north towards Point Dume. The view and weather were perfect while being sheltered under Geoffrey's well positioned umbrellas. The service and cocktails were very good. The drinks being pricey but well made. Early lunch or dinner are best suited for Geoffrey's as parking is tight even with valet. When we left at 1:30 there wasn't room to park a Fiat in the parking lot. We're looking forward to returning again in the Fall."

  • "Top three dining experiences!! I can not say enough great things. Views were gorgeous. Environment was relaxing. Food was delicious. Service was great. Hospitality was absolutely over the top, the dining room manager had the hostess (she was super sweet) drive us back to our B&B because the one cab in Malibu broke down. Thank you so very much for an amazing night!!! We will never forget it."

  • "Service was ok but food was not good at all. I got caesars salad and it was tasteless. My cousin got egg benedict and it was not good at all. Definitely not worth the price they have."

  • "It's a bit of a hike from my place but always worth it. The food is consistently terrific-- love the tuna tartar and tasty beet salad. When you have out-of-state visitors, this is the place to impress with open patio and ocean views."

  • "Three of us had a special evening at Geoffrey's. We had an outside table with a beautiful view of the ocean. It was a little cool, but there were heaters that the staff adjusted and moved around according to customers' preferences. The salads and soup were excellent. I had the carrot ginger soup. We shared a bottle of alborino wine which went well with our main entrees of sword fish and scallops. My husband and son liked the bacon that was part of the sauce for the fish. We shared a rich dessert of brûlée and chocolate mousse. Our server was friendly and helpful. It was a memorable dining experience."

  • "We were able to get a table with a good view of the ocean, and we were there right at sunset--so that was great. Space is very open and the tables are close together, so kind of impossible not to hear other people's conversations. Waiter was terrific--food was excellent. Not quite as romantic as I hoped--but overall a very positive experience."

  • "Geoffrey's really delivered for us: we wanted to give our ailing mum a spectacular seaside holiday. The setting is divine. The staff then gave us the finest table with vast ocean views. Our waiter was attentive and personable. Geoffrey's is the #1 place I always bring my out-of-town visitors. With its history & location it is an iconic LA/Hollywood/Malibu experience to give friends, family & colleagues from elsewhere. Sophisticated, relaxed elegance, with a location that can't be beat. Mum loved the setting. I appreciate the eclectic crowd: local families, tourists, romantic couples, celebrants, low-key celebrities, etc. Geoffrey's manages to combine being a significant destination restaurant as well as a local Malibu watering hole."

  • "Truly disappointed with this place... Let's start with location... Way to far of a drive from Beverly Hills 1 hour away. Once there entering the bar area and going to the patio it smelled like urine. They must have a sewer problem because the stench was horrible. The service was ok our waiter was not familiar with the term "Pittsburg medium rare" he comments to us was " this is not a steakhouse we don't specialize in doing steaks". Wrong answer to make to a customer. I knew from that point on dinner was not going to be all that great. My husbands steak was bland and tuff. My rib eye was very fatty and uneatable. The other thing it was a fixed Menu for $75.00 a person and my bill came to over 200.00 for 2 people who had 1 drink."
