    A great find for El Paso Texas. WE had the salmon and scallops and they were excellent. Not recommended for a romantic evening but for a start of a night of adventure it is a good place to start. Parking will always be an issue in this park of El Paso so be prepared to allow time for this issue. The service was excellent and overall a pleasant evening and find.

    After traveling for 9 hours from Colorado, I was starved and wanted nothing more than a drink and good food. I find Geogeske through my hotel's list of suggestions and was in love the minute I walked in. Their drink menu is outstanding, and the martini I had was the perfect end to my long day. The seafood enchiladas were delicious and was so much food I couldn't even finish it all! This is my new favorite restaurant that I will be sure to visit whenever I am in El Paso, and I just wish I could go at home, too!

    What an amazing El Paso find. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and really liked the eclectic menu selections. From the moment we entered and was greeted warmly by our wonderful and incredible waiter, Frank, everything about our experience was outstanding. The grilled cheese sandwich is to die for and the BBQ chicken amazing. You need to definitely enjoy this gem.

    In the past my daughter has ordered this salad but on this one occasion, it was the chicken was rather tasteless...it tasted like "chicken," as opposed to having any flavor (like it usually does).

    The food was good, the salads were fresh the drinks well made. It was a Thursday night. The place was super noisy. I felt I was in a concert. Great place for a bar experience and a buzz. Not the kind of place to hold a conversation.

    I stay away from chain restaurants, especially when I travel. Finally decided to try G2 and was not disappointed. Wish I would have tried It sooner as I'm not sure when I'll be back in El Paso. Had dinner with a co-worker and then met up with a frind for drinks. Perfect place to eat and then hang out, no need to go anywhere else.

    My husband won a raffle which included a gift card for Geogeske. I was aware of the restaurant but never had a chance to try it. The noise level was moderate because we arrived on the night of a UTEP basketball game, before the game started. We ordered chips and guacamole for a starter. The guacamole was fresh and tasty. My husband ordered a chicken sandwich and I had the scallops. His sandwich was huge and juicy. My scallops were seasoned beautifully and perfectly done. This was a wonderful dinner. Tip: spend the money for valet parking. Parking space is at a premium of the weekend.

    We love G2. We go there regularly. We made a reservation simply because it was a popular night and there were going to be 6 of us for dinner. Thanks to opentable, we made the reservation 20 minutes before arriving. When we walked in, they were setting up our table. Our server was slammed so things ran a little slow (hence the 4 stars) but everything was exactly how we ordered it. Will go back without question.

    This establishment needs to have enough staff to serve its patrons. Our poor waitress was stretched to the max and as a result wasn't around as often as we would have liked. Also around 915 the lights went down so low we could barely see our food. G2 needs to decide whether it's a restaurant or a bar. It is not doing a very good job of trying to be both. I will say that I gave been for drinks and the bar is quite fun. Its just too much for that first row of tables.

    The food was overly seasoned to the point that you didnt really taste anything you just felt heat. The appetizer was ok, the salads were good, but the entree left the evening short. I think i had about 5 bites of the meal if that. The waiter didnt seem to notice, but otherwise gave very good service. The noise was almost unbearable. you couldnt even carry on a conversation across the table. The menu looked amazing unfortuantly it fell short on actual flavor. It may have just been a bad night but I doubt I will give them another chance with so many other options in the same area.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/5/2012
    There are absolutely no complaints about the food or service; both are very good. However, the key drawback of the restaurant is its lighting. No patron should have to bring a flashlight to read the menu. I know a few standby items and stick to them, but should I wish to probe... forget it! Since Geogeske's is so close to UTEP, perhaps it should undergo a name change to "Geogeske's Mining Shaft" to suit the ambiance of the place better. The flooring is a little industrial and parking is a nuisance, but it is not a place I'd become a regular to simply because of the lighting situation, which is quiet annoying.

    Seafood enchiladas was OK, but seafood was a good term to describe the filling rather than the menu description of what it was composed. Green chili rice as a side was very good. My guest fared better with a seared scallops with garlic and spinach sauce and sauteed mixed vegetables.
