    I love this restaurant location little far from city, very quiet and calm, feels relaxing to be there. The foods are very tasty and gourmet. It is good for dating or girls night out... it's very romantic.

    Went on the recommendation of a relative and we were not disappointed. We spent the weekend in Santa Monica and needed a nice dinner for our 2nd night and Geoffrey's was perfect. Seated on the patio overlooking the ocean was a great setting for part 2 of our anniversary dinner weekend. Service was fabulous. Food was great. I ordered the seafood paella and my wife ordered the swordfish. Both were very good.

    We had a wonderful brunch here. This a great place to get a tasty meal and enjoy the scenic ocean view in Malibu. We were seated outside where there were plenty of umbrellas to block out the direct intense California sun. The service was friendly and our food was delicious. This is the only place that I've ever seen that serves their eggs benedict on a croissant! The french toast is also delicious. One other thing that I really liked was that they added your $7 valet charge to your bill, which is great when you don't always have cash.

    First impression came from the valet service, which took us 15 minutes. All of the valet employees were bickering with each other across the parking lot. Once seated it took awhile to get anyone to show up and take drink orders. When it was time to order I wanted my salmon well done and the waiter laughed at me and just said 'we'll okay, if that's really what you want...' Also, the $63 steak came with French fries, which I thought was odd. Overall too snooty of a place for us, but views and food were good.

    The restaurant had a lovely ocean view, the perfect breeze, and calming music and waterfall. The food was excellent and the waitstaff was definitely on top of things. I had the Herb Crusted Salmon it was cooked to perfection with a crisp outside, a yummy sauce, mashed potatoes, and crisp broccolini, my friend had the Seafood Paella which was also fantastic (I had a couple bites). I would definitely recommend this place to others.

    I made a reservation for our19th Wedding Anniversary and specifically requested a patio table for our special occasion. We drove over 1 1/2 in traffic only to be seated at a table with no view, barely on the edge of the patio. Other patrons arrived with NO RESERSERVATIONS after us, waited in the bar for 5 minutes & got front row seats? Made a request to hostess to move & was told "No" & not very nicely! Chicken Piccata was mediocre with "cold" mashed potatoes. Service was nothing special for a $100 lunch. (I have dined here in the past and enjoyed it . . . Not sure what happened . . . But, will not recommend or return anytime soon!). Not how I had planned to spend this special occasion!

    The staff was great. The location for the view is spectacular. My husband and two friends went for the first time Sunday September 28th. We all ordered the salmon and agreed that it was overdone. The fingerling potatoes were just okay. The apple cobbler ala mode came with a hot plate [!?] and the ice cream was already soup on the plate. Sorry to the baker but it was awful. The crust was chewy not crisp [maybe it was microwaved?] The flavor was awful and inside the mushy apples were like lumpy baby food. Take it off the menu. The price is much too high for the quality of food. We may try again next summer just for the view but we will send our food back to the kitchen if it's the same.

    I have dined at Geoffrey's many times over the years. It is just down the street from my house. Last Saturday, I took an out of town business associate to dinner there and could not have been more disappointed. The valet was backed up, 15 mins to park. The server was terrible. No one for 10 mins after we were seated, and then my friend had to take a call and instead of coming back or speaking with me, he kept attempting to speak with my friend on the phone. The food was hotel room service quality at best. Lobster Sliders to start - they were simply lobster meat on kings Hawaiian rolls - none of the promised seasoning or sauce by the server were present. Then 68 for an over salted average steak with presentation worthy of a diner...

    Geoffrey's is nice for a lazy Sunday brunch. Unfortunately for us, a close neighbour was having their cars cleaned and so the sound of the blower/vacuum drowned much of the ocean noise. Not Geoffrey's fault but something to keep in mind. Food was good.

    Geoffrey's never fails to impress with its 180 degree ocean view and pretty garden. The service and the food are consistently excellent also. We eat there fairly often, and my favorites are the golden beet salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts and the seared sea scallops served on lobster risotto. The vegetable panini is also very good and can be shared with a friend leaving room for the creme brulee/chocolate mousse combination for dessert. Yum!

    We have been visiting this restaurant for many years and the dining experience has been consistently good. We both had the halibut this time which was slightly over cooked. The service was not quite as attentive as we had observed previously. Still an good choice for a weekend lunch.

    In my opinion, you are simply paying for the location/view. I have never had an outstanding meal at Geoffrey's and the eggs benedict I had for brunch was just as disappointing. No flavor to the food and it was a major let down. So when you go, be prepared to pay a lot simply to enjoy the location and view. There many better restaurants in the greater Los Angeles are with fantastic food you can go to with ambience and pay less or the same. Nothing more than that!

    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.
