Diner Reviews
  • "This was our second time to the restaurant. View and service was awesome as expected. The scallops were awesome, but my seabass was a bit bland. Fish was very fresh, but just didn't have much flavor to it. The tomato on the top made it seem like eating ketchup with the fish. That's the only reason for the food downgrade."

  • "We made the trek to Malibu for our anniversary. Everything people say about the view and the great service is spot on. This is definitely a place for the high end crowd, but the service is absolutely unpretentious. Every person, from the valet, to the reception, to the bar, to the waiter, was very friendly and welcoming. We really had a perfect evening. We'll be back, especially for the friendly service."

  • "Had the Kobe wagyu New York steak, diver scallops, and the Chilean sea bass. The execution of the proteins were phenomenal; unfortunately, no flavor. Service by the waitress was substandard. She just came to greet, took order, check on us once during meal, and dropped the check. While other tables served by other waiters had been checked up by them, she only did once, never have bread, nor checked on our drinks. She's nice, but being nice is not enough to serve. It would be deal for her to pay attention to detail of her service. Good and proper first impression is everything, unfortunately she was unable to achieve that on our first visit to Geoferry's. We will come by one more time, hopefully it would be different next time around."

  • "A magnificent location, with views across the bay and seaward. We arrived and were quickly escorted to our table. The service was courteous and prompt, yet appropriately relaxed. The cocktails were excellent and the appetizers came quickly. In the case of the salad, I suspect this was because it was pre-made and dress. It lacked a certain crispness and was overdressed. The mains were great. The swordfish was moist and tasty and the scallops cooked perfectly. The by the glass wine list was limited, but we each found a pleasant wine to accompany our meal. Overall a very memorable evening."

  • "If a visiting friend has but one night in LA, and loves the whole legend of California - beautiful beach, elegant settings, warm reception and easy atmosphere - this is the place. My visitor is from a little town in Texas, which she loves - she kept saying that this feels like a dream. And Geoffrey's lets you linger over conversation long after your meal is done."

  • "We took our friends from London to Geoffrey's for a Sunday brunch to experience the SoCal lifestyle and it didn't disappoint. Fodd was nice, service was good and locations great. Hostess could have been more accommodating with our request for a nicer table - considering the restaurant wasn't busy."

  • "Few views of the Pacidic can equal the one at Geoffrey's; the food is almost as magnifique. Service there makes life so enjoyable you never could want to leave your table overlooking the sea."

  • "Geoffrey's overlooks the coast of Malibu and the sights couldn't be any better! The patio is nicely appointed with small tables and umbrellas that make for a pleasant dining experience. The food is really good and the people watching is even better. Look close and you might even spot a celebrity or two. ;)"

  • "We took my daughter and nephew here for a birthday dinner and upon request, were given an outdoor table with a beautiful view. We went to town and ordered several appetizers to share, which were delicious. Dinner and dessert were good. Our server was wonderful, very helpful and entertaining. I would definitely go back for another special occasion!"

  • "We had a great table overlooking the ocean on a beautiful SoCal spring morning. Service was excellent along with the food. We started with the signature bloody Mary and lychee margarita which were very drinkable. An order of oysters with Miso dipping sauce were followed by Geoffrey brunch items scallops and crab cake Benedict. The restaurant was filling up when we left about 12:30. I recommend going early to beat the sea breeze and crowd. We're looking forward to returning soon."

  • "While our main server and support staff were wonderful, overall our experience fell short. Sometimes the kitchen makes a mistake but what is the service culture to overcome that? I don't feel I need to be demanding but I'd prefer class exhibited to compensate. Disappointing effort for such a high end place."

  • "however our waiter disappeared a number of times. Water glasses not filled, bread needed to be asked for even though he brought bread plates to the table. Asked if we were interested in dessert and then took forever to bring the menu. We will for sure go back but hoping for far better service when we visit next time."

  • "We were looking forward to our lunch on Saturday. Very disappointed in the food prep. We eat out a lot. We had a salad and an omelet both were ordinary and twice the price of most other restaurants. The view and setting was magnificent. Also parking fee of seven dollars a bit high"

  • "I was so disappointed. We were given very poor service, took over an hour to get our entree and only after repeated inquiries. We had to ask to be moved as a family was seated after us at the next table, and their children were allowed to be extremely unruly to the point that we could not carry on a conversation. This was a business meeting and it was very upsetting. Although the presentation of the food was superb, my salmon was overcooked."

  • "My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary and we couldn't have made a better choice! We were seated next to the railing, with a beautiful view, just like I had asked! To start, we ordered a baked brie, which was absolutely delicious. For our entrees, he ordered a kobe steak and I ordered the scallops (the presentation for both was exquisite). The scallops and risotto had an amazing flavor and so did his steak. As we were eating the sun set, which added eve more romance to our night. After we were finished we were given a dessert on the house to celebrate! I really enjoyed the atmosphere, our waitress, and the food of course! I highly recommend!"

  • "We have been constant patrons of Geoffrey's for years every time we visit Santa Monica. We have always enjoyed the food, service, and views. This last time, Sunday, March 16 for brunch, I had asked for a window wall seat as we were celebrating the engagement if my daughter. When we arrived, not only was our request never acknowledged, but we were seated back in the dungeon area. Far back under the covered area. What made it worse, shortly after we were seated three young blondes, dressed to the nines, were being seated next to us. The vigorously complained, were told that the hostess would speak with the manager, and were promptly seated at the best table in the entire house. Following this, our meal took over 30 minutes to be delivered."

  • "We have dined at Geoffrey's many, many times but not in a year or so. While the setting is still awesome the food was somewhat disappointing. The Corn Chowder was changed, the Tuna Tartare not up to par and the $65 Prime Rib Steak was just so so. We would return at some point but past experiences were far more enjoyable."

  • "Most of the service was awesome, only a couple of people we encountered (bartender) sucked and were rude. Our food was awesome, and it made the evening one to remember. Would definitely go again."

  • "Had dinner with my fiancee here. Table was perfect, host was very upfront and worked diligently to accommodate our seating request. Server was fantastic, very knowledgeable, attentive and engaging without being intrusive. Food was expertly prepared, and delicious though our entrees were less creative or experimental, they were prepared with care and competence. The flavours of the sides complemented our mains very well, and really helped bring out the dishes. Our appetizers were pretty special, unique and delectable.Overall had a very memorable evening i would recommend it for special occasions and will definitely be coming back. Oh and surprising, we found it to be great value for money spent too."

  • "Food was ok but the service was mediocre at best. Our waiter barely managed a smile and seemed irked when we asked him to correct our wobbly table, he reluctantly fixed it. Certainly wouldn't recommend taking anyone there you wanted to impress. We were told the tables by the water were reserved for VIPs, and yet there were two sat empty. Meanwhile we were tucked away in the back. Diners are treated more like numbers than valued customers, perhaps unless you qualify as a VIP..! Overall left feeling disappointed and dissatisfied."

  • "We come here often for lunch. The ocean view is spectacular and makes for a relaxing environment. The staff is friendly, attentive and they NEVER rush us. Our favorite foods here are the house eggs benedict, paella, diver scallops, brie appetizer, corn chowder and lamb shank when available. Today the special pumpkin arugula salad was fantastic! My husband agreed to share a salad but winced when I ordered the pumpkin salad. After he finished his portion, he said, "Man that was really really good. I'm glad we got that!""

  • "Hi; Friday Night Dinner Been to Geoffreys several times before for breakfast lunch and dinner and have been impressed. ...But not this time. Wow, Waiter was so tired that he was almost useless. Turns out he had worked a double shift and his feet were killing him...We heard all about it. Was not asked and could not order wine with dinner because the waiter dissapeared after taking our dinner order Did not get the martini I ordered the way I asked for it. Nit Picy I know but dinner bill was $200.00 for two of us. Waiter dissapeared after taking dinner order so we were on our own to find the bread guy and water etc. I was embarassed to take my date here as I felt ignored. The young staff were preocupied amoungst themselves."
