Diner Reviews
  • "Not many other restaurants in the world have a nice a view."
    Dined on 8/28/2014
  • "The experience here was fantastic. The views of the sun and the ocean make up for the somewhat expensive menu. But, what can you expect at such a fine establishment. I hope that we can find the chance to dine here again on our next visit to the west cost."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "Breathtaking views are enhanced only by the amazing lobster risotto with scallops complemented with espresso martinis and a most decadent caramel apple tart. A wonderful treat!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The ocean view is fantastic but this time, we did not get seating with a view. previous visit, the restaurant was able to accommodate us. Still a restaurant with a great view."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Geoffrey's for our anniversary last weekend and it was perfect. The food and drinks were perfect, the staff did a great job, and the view was incredible."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Went there this weekend. The view and the food are great! BUT the staff is not very welcoming. Would not come back"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "They have a great ocean view from outdoor terrace tables. Good for Brunch!"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The same good food, view, and service for many years"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "View, service, food was terrific!! No complaints at all. The service there made my first experience at geoffrey's inviting n comfortable n just a overall great experience! !..I wish I could remember the older spanish gentleman who served us because without servers like him it wouldn't have been a great experience! !..n food is great, I highly recommend this place not to upscale or snooty to be intimidated but very friendly environment! !"

  • "We try to plan dinner here anytime we are near Los Angeles. It was so good we cancelled plans elsewhere our last day in town and went back. Worth every penny."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Gorgeous views, comfortable setting, friendly staff. The food was good, but not amazing across the board as I had expected/hoped, especially considering the prices. I ordered a salad that was supposed to have roasted vegetables in it, but they were diced so small and there were so few I thought the kitchen forgot to put them in the salad. I could hardly find them! So $13 for lettuce and a little quinoa in dressing was not exactly impressive. Luckily, the baked brie was delicious. I'd go back for the ambiance, for sure, but temper my expectations on the food."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "The drive to Malibu down PCH on a sunny day is just horrendous! It will take you an hour to go 14 miles! That said, once you arrive at Geoffrey's you realize the drive was worth every minute! Even though we were 35 minutes late for our reservation, the host was still able to give us a table for 2 right on the railing. The stunning ocean views are justification enough to eat here, but the cocktails and food are just as amazing. The tuna tartar was fresh and flavorful, and the scallops with lobster risotto pretty much gave me a foodgasm!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Food was top-notch here as always...but not sure what happened with service, which was awful. After getting my entree, no one asked if I wanted pepper (I did), I never received the second roll I requested and the waiter never asked if everything came out fine. I enjoy eating here, so this was pretty troubling..."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "First time in Malibu and went to Geoffrey's based on Yelp reviews. What a great choice!! View was amazing, service was great and food was delicious. Will definitely be heading back there when I'm in Malibu again!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Met our expectations in every way. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Spectacular view of the coast. Comfortable seating. Robust wine list. Very romantic setting. Fast and friendly service. Convenient parking and easy to find. Variety of gluten free options."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Had a great time again at Geoffreys - Took my BFF for Birthday lunch - requested an received outside table, in the shade with ocean view. Service was excellent, food was fabulous and beginning with parking attendant, entry hostess, and service everyone was on it!!!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Great ocean view, not rushed during a very leisurely lunch! Puff Pastry appetizer was the best...and Creme brûlée awesome!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Great place to have the perfect view of the ocean and some outstanding wine and food to go with... You cannot actually the sun setting over the ocean...but we went on a full-moon night, and to see the moon rising over the ocean was an absolute treat... :)"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We had the most attentive server, at the time her name slips my memory. She was more than accommodating. She was patient and had Haley (sp?) the bartender make the exact vodka martini I love (cucumber, jalapeño, Stolle, St Germain) - up! It was perfect as was my BFF's appletini. It was fun, the food was great, and we ate too much! Really happy to have this place in our neighborhood."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I drove 45 miles to meet a friend for brunch but it's all worth my drive. Everything we ordered was good- appetizer, drinks, main course and dessert. I think all tables have a spectacular view of the ocean. I'm definitely coming back with my husband."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The dolphin siting attraction is a scam. Once we were at our table we were told that it rarely happens---over priced food--view is ok but not right in water as stated---homes in front and below"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Geoffrey's service was attentive, food was exquisite, ambiance on point, .... overall, totally worth the price!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The Hostess was totally unprofessional, the wait for our table was atrocious. Even with reservation we had to wait for over 1.5 hour to be seated. The quality & presentation of the food was mediocre and way overpriced. Best was the ambiance and the service."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "It had been about 20 years since we had visited Geoffrey's...much too long! The Pacific view was spectacular, service lively and the food beyond belief! We will return much sooner this time."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Had a wonderful celebration of a friend's birthday. Service was excellent. Food was good and they gave us a dessert on the house for the birthday girl."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We planned a romantic sunset dinner for our anniversary. The restaurant knew that, but the host seated us next to a table of 12 with 6 kids. They seemed quiet at first, but soon were running and jumping in the spaces between tables. Neither the parents (non-English-speaking) or restaurant management did anything. Ruined the occasion. Won't go back for a long time."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Just isn't the same place. Food was actually bad. Service was attentive and respectful , but inexperienced. Waiter actually challenged us when he got our order wrong, saying we made the error (ordered the filet, not the NY steak). Overcooked, oversalted food. When the waiter brought a second glass of wine, he attempted to pour the few drops left in the first glass into the new full glass (I guess to give us our money's worth). We yelped "no" and stopped him (almost funny). Just sad, as Geoffrey's has many emotional ties for us."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Geoffrey's always provides what in my opinion is the most gorgeous view in the coast."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had a very pleasurable evening at Geoffrey's. The view was beautiful and included an unexpected rainbow. The service was top-notch. The food was delicious. And the ambiance was perfect. What more could anyone want?"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We requested outdoor seating - all of the seating IS outdoors, but not railside on the Pacific. I had made the reservation for 6:30 PM (early) thinking that we would be assured priority seating. We were seated beneath the outdoor overhang (indoors, essentially) and finished our meal in under an hour. Lovely server, but food felt rushed and no effort was made to accomodate the two of us for priority seating. Very pricey."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "It is a neighborhood gem. I love going to this place, I drive from Carlsbad to go here, the view is amazing! The only downside this time was the fish, Chilean seabass was not all that tasty, very bland, usually it is much better."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Our food was cold and I had to remind the server several times about my requests."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The rib eye steak with potatoes was excellent as was the paella. Cocktails and wines by the glass quite good. Desert, alas, was mediocre so stick with the house specialty of creme brulee."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Everything about Geoffrey's is terrific! From the valet when you arrive, to the food, staff and food. Love it!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Great food, awesome view! Highly recommended! Try it, you'll love it!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "While the view was spectacular, the food was fine. The menu was ambitious, prices high for what was served. The service was attentive."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "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."
