    Even though we didn't have the best seat in the house, the view was still unparalleled and the brunch menu held really delicious choices. It was quite a hike from the Westside, but it was a beautiful day for a drive and the destination to me was worth it!

    Service was top notch, very attentive. Food: Appetizers Shrimp with plum sauce and Tuna Tartar - good! Our dinners: filet, scallops, paella, Chilean Sea Bass. All very good but NOT spectacular. Desserts were good as well. I might be back for the setting and view but the good definetly will not be the reason. It is not bad but I have had better!

    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.

    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...

    One of our favorite places to enjoy beautiful Southern California weather and epic views of the Pacific Ocean. Food is consistently good and the friendly staff all around makes it an enjoyable special occasion outing. Our favorites for brunch are the spicy bloody mary's, lobster quiche and the crab benedicts, though they have a varied menu to fit most tastes.

    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 8/5/2014
    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.

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    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.
