    While the view is gorg, the ambiance lovely.....the food was not! We ordered two lobster cobb salads. The lobster was a piece of rubber. We could not cut it to eat it. Not sure if it was old or overcooked???? At $33 it should have been served perfect!

    Geoffrey's has become our "go to" restaurant when we have family and friends visiting from the east coast/midwest because it is quintessential California coast al fresco dining. The restaurant has outdoor dining tables on a lovely landscaped patio overlooking the ocean. With scenery like that it's already well worth the drive! Also the food is excellent and the servers are super nice. Our only suggestions would be to improve the wine list (add Justin from Paso Robles), update the bar decor and improve communication amongst the servers. Overall this is a terrific restaurant and always provides for a wonderful and memorable occasion. The night we dined, there were fireworks at nearby Paradise Cove which were spectacular!

    I've been to Geoffrey's before, and it is always great for brunch and views of the water. Our waiter was not great. He was confusing when explaining the menu, and I ended up ordering the wrong drink as a result. With the nicoise salad, he described the tuna as rare (I was thinking sashimi--that was not something I wanted) but it was seared perfectly, as it should be. He offered pepper, I accepted, then he peppered my mother's food (she did not want any) and walked away without actually giving me any. Besides this strange server, our food was excellent as always, and we still enjoyed ourselves.

    My husband and I (we were married the morning before our visit) chose to celebrate our wedding at Geoffrey's. We couldn't have made a better choice! The hostesses went out of their way to accommodate us with a perfect table with a view for sunset, special handling of our desserts, and all around courtesy and care for our special night. Hans, our waiter was delightful as well. He helped to make us feel very special in careful handling of our food and wine choices as well as such kind words of congratulations and best wishes. He and Geoffrey's went above and beyond to make our night special! We hope to go back again soon - and certainly for our 1st anniversary!

    The Super Sunset was followed by the Super Moon rise to the East. Fantastic views and location. The food was very good - everyone in the party enjoyed the soups and entrees. The wine by the glass was not great - a bottle would have been better - but I was the only one drinking. The views make this location always worth the drive. Even if you only have a drink and appetizer.

    We were sad to discover that they were out of lobster, especially for such a nice restaurant in Malibu, but the waitress suggested the crab cakes which had a lobster risotto instead and it was delicious! Food was very good! The staff was very nice although it did take a long time between each course for people to pick up our plates and come over to check on us for refills. We were there for a long evening so it didn't effect us, but we wouldn't go when we know we would have to leave quickly.

    Had lunch here with a couple of friends on Labor Day. The view is awesome, and the restaurant did not disappoint either. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The service was friendly and efficient; the food was tasty and enjoyed by all. We capped things off with a walk along the beach, accessed via the Coastal Access steps next door, just north of the restaurant. Well worth the hour it took to trek from Hollywood.

    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.

    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!

    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...
