Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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!!!"

  • "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... :)"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "It was my first time there and the ambience was lovely. Service was great and food. Was accommodating for a vegetarian diet."

  • "Wonderful food, service, ambiance and a view of the ocean. The waiter was like a trusted adviser I will be going back"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "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."

  • "Geoffrey's is located in west Malibu, which is a bit of a drive, but well worth the trip. The restaurant is perched on the hillside overlooking the Pacific. Most of the tables are located on the vast patio, with excellent views and cool fresh air. We've tried most of the menu items over time, and the ones that stand out are: Tuna tartare (excellent), Coconut shrimp and Paella. They also make a great omelet if you happen to be there for brunch. Their anti-oxidant mojito is very refreshing."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Outstanding place to dine....very relaxing, good food, peaceful and great service...what more can you ask for. I strongly recommend Geoffrey's and can't wait to go there again."
