    Schlechter geht es nicht! 1) Wir waren 5 Personen, eine Person schaffte es pünktlich und durfte sich nicht zum Tisch setzen, musste draussen warten bis alle da gewesen sind - sie sagten: Firmenpolitik... 2) Wir haben einen Tisch am Rand nachgefragt, dies wurde uns zugesichtert jedoch nicht gegeben, Firmenpolitik 3) Mein Puppy Dog (in der Tasche, 2kg) musste zwingend am Boden sitzen und durfte nicht auf einem Handtaschentisch, welcher weit unter dem Tisch wäre sitzen - sie sagten: Firmenpolitik 4) Unfreundlicher Service sodass wir das Lokal verlassen haben Danke dafür, wir waren dann im Mastros in Malibu, hatten eine Topbedienung, live Musik und ein sensationelles Essen. Mein Hund durfte neben mir sein und war willkommen.

    I have been to Geoffrey's many times over the years, but I recently returned for the first time in over a year. The menu is slightly revamped. Service was great. The food was great (better than I remember). Freshly squeezed watermelon/cucumber margarita. Filet and Eggs. Perfect Sunday brunch! We even took a stroll down to the water utilizing the private passage from the restaurant. We will definitely be back!

    I had Surf & Turf and the lobster was very dry as if they took it out of the freezer. Filet was fair but this dish is not worth $110. My wife had Seabass and she was also disappointed because it was also dry. Will I give this place another try, maybe one more try during lunch where we can at least enjoy the view.

    Location is everything ! We were wrongly seated at a great table, then moved back from the railing. Very good waiter, each course was very good. Crab cakes, beet salad, Sea Bass ($50), apple fritter. All very good. Dinner for two was $200.00! Premium for the location. We’d go back if we’re back down there again. We lucked out on weather, needed the heaters.

    Service, food, and ambiance was only good. Can’t beat the view, but it was night and we were spread out from the rest of the patrons. There was no vibe. Kinda dead for a Friday night. They should have closed off portions of the patio to avoid that. Receptionist was unenthused and so was the waiter. The valet was the most welcoming of the folks we interacted with. It was all just fine. It’ll be a while before I go back, and it’ll just be to show others the view.

    This is mainly a review of the food. The view is pretty nice, you can’t see the beach as the trees and houses below block most of the view. But being at the edge, along the water was nice nevertheless. The service was good, our waitress and hostess were nice. The food was surprisingly poor. Especially considering the price. We got the coconut shrimp, watermelon salad, Sea Bass, and Ribeye. The ribeye was $93. For that price I was excited to get just a well cooked, fatty cut. It was terrible. It was under seasoned. It was cooked to medium rare, but it was incredibly chewy with sinew. It reminded me of hospital food. I have had better steaks at chain restaurants for a third of the cost. Extremely surprising. It was served with boiled Brussel sprouts that were “Caeser’d”. It was watery from the boiled water. The croutons were soggy. The flavor was fine, but again, for $93. The plating also reminded me of a hospital plate. The sea bass was over cooked. Everything was mushy besides the filet. Coconut shrimp was fine. The shrimp was truly jumbo which made the texture satisfying, but the breading didn’t taste much like coconut. The salad was good, mainly because I love arugula. Generally, the food here felt under seasoned. Yet none of the ingredients felt fresh enough to be served lIke that. And I simply cannot get over the $93 steak. The plate really reminded me of a cafeteria. The grill marks were probably real but the whole plate would have made it seem like fake grill marks.

    Our server Hans was amazing! Really took care of us and allowed us to enjoy celebrating my husbands birthday. The food was delicious we ordered the tuna tartare and mussels to start. Hans was kind enough to course it for us so we could enjoy each item at the right temp. For main dish my husband had the sea bass and the crust was incredible on the sear of it. I had the filet that was cooked a perfect med rare. I can’t wait to go back again and to bring others to enjoy the beautiful sunset view as well.

    The steak was not very good. I was really surprised that it was so tough. There were just two of us and the bill was $400, which left both of us wondering what we had just spent $400 on. The ambiance is incredible, the view is stunning, the service was impeccable, but the food wasn't great.

    Very expensive for fair service and not great food. Most of the food was just ok - but the Kobe burger was overdone and served on a stale huge bun. And the fries were underdone and soggy. It’s a beautiful place but a tourist trap that I won’t be returning to.

    My experience at Geoffrey's in Malibu for a Valentine's Day dinner left me with mixed feelings. The coastal ambiance and carefully crafted cocktails set the stage for a memorable evening, but unfortunately, the dining experience fell a bit short. We had the Valentine's Day prix-fixe menu, I looked forward to indulging in a memorable meal. The cocktails were expertly crafted, providing a delightful prelude to the culinary adventure ahead. My choice for the main course was the prime rib, a classic dish that should shine in an establishment of this caliber. However, despite ordering it medium-well, the prime rib arrived at the table cooked to a medium doneness. This oversight was surprising and disappointing, as precision in cooking is expected at a higher-end establishment like Geoffrey's. They were apologetic, however, I had to send my dish back while the others in my party indulged in their meal. While the ambiance and service remained commendable, the deviation from my specified cooking preference significantly impacted the overall enjoyment of the meal. In a restaurant of this stature, attention to detail, especially in fulfilling specific requests, should be a top priority. In conclusion, Geoffrey's in Malibu offers a stunning backdrop for a romantic evening, but the inconsistency in the execution of the main course, particularly with regards to the prime rib's doneness, left a notable blemish on an otherwise special Valentine's Day celebration.

    The only extreme aspect that stood out to me was the limited menu, in combination with the quality of the food. The location is excellent, aside from the valet and speeding highway directly adjacent from the restaurant. But to recall the food, the specific item that stood out to me was the exquisitely poor made Caesar Salad. Perhaps it is an inconsistency with my own pallet, but the anchovies were far too loud in the dish. The water content is the dish was another flaw to point out.
