Food was good, but compared to same quality food in other restaurants was over priced, special that a strawberry lemonade for my 12 with two refills was $24 I guess $8 and charge for refills or some celebrity must have picked or squeezed the lemons, to cost $24 over all we enjoyed as it was my wife birthday what ever

Delicious ambiance and food with excellent service and a stunning view. The complimentary dinner rolls alone are worth the drive!

The view was nice, the service was fine. The prices were high, but expected, given the view. The food was completely disappointing.

Beautiful location, beautiful view. Very pricey, food was good but not quite at the level of the price. You just need to know you are paying for the ambiance which is great.

Had a reservation and requested a table with ocean view. Got exactly what I wanted. Food was great. Only complaint I had was having to remind my waiter I had asked for a lime for my water on 3 separate occasions.

Because we had a baby, we didn't get one of the best seats. Really, the best seats are for only 2 people. But because we had a baby, we were put far away from the views and placed with other family tables. We weren't even asked if that's where we wanted to seat.

It kinda feels like we paid a lot of money for the presentation and environment but were robbed out of the views.

Food was ok.

Food was horrible.
Sea bass tasted horrible. Really, it was bad. It was worse than buying something from Ralph's.
Lobster salad was horrible too.
Affagto, the coffee was extremely acdidic, they do not know how to make espresso shots.

Blueberry cake was okay, however they charged a lot for it it was my wife's birthday usually all nice restaurant give complementary slice of cake but they don't do that here.

The kept tossing our utensil on the table instead over a napkin, please stop that!

They need to go check out mastro in Malibu and see how they serve there and learn. What they do when it's your birthday. Experience was not good.

Mussel was gross too. I can make better buying from Ralph's too.

Complementary bread and butter was the best out of it the entire meal.

Wonderful night with mostly good efforts on the part of the kitchen and server but the sea bass was undercooked and would have taken too long to correct it (who wants to wait to eat when everybody else has their food?) I ordered another cocktail (cosmopolitan) that I wanted to have with dinner but it took too long so I cancelled the drink, however, it was not cancelled on our bill -- I didn't notice the server did not take it off the bill, but since the drinks are on the expensive side, it does add up. We were celebrating a birthday dinner and the complimentary dessert was quite unimpressive, one small scoop of ice cream with berries -- considering we had appetizers, several round of cocktails and four dinners, this was a disappointment.

We went for our anniversary. Our waitress was friendly but when we asked about wines she said they didn’t have a sommelier and she wasn’t very knowledgeable. The manager seemed nice too. He checked on us a couple of times. My husband asked about an after dinner drink and he made a recommendation saying that he would relay it to our server, which he never did. The food was prepped well but there absolutely no salt. My sea bass was dry and over cooked. The one stand out about the place is the location. Absolutely beautiful! The food and training of staff needs a revamp.

Beautiful location with a great ocean view, unfortunately not matched by food quality and presentation. Hefty price tag. Value for money is just not competitive.

I was here celebrating my first anniversary. Everything was gorgeous and the food was amazing. The only issue I had was that we were seated next to what seemed to be a very loud bachelorette party. Our waiter also happened to be theirs. He was kind and accommodating, but getting his attention was difficult to the loud group of ladies constantly trying to talk to him.

Food was fresh and presented well, but most of the entrees were bland. Appetizers were great. Desserts were mixed. Great service and ambiance. Original reservations were canceled due to a gas leak in their kitchen. It may have had an effect on the meal.

Geoffrey”s is our most favorite seaside restaurant. The ambience is great, you can actually carry on a conversation in a civil tone (no blaring music). The outdoor setting is great and while not right on the ocean it is close enough that you can hear the waves and you have an unbeatable panoramic view of the Pacific. We have even see whales from the restaurant! The food is always delicious and prepared with great attention to both presentation and flavor. The service is great, very personable and friendly. This is a great place to come to relax and enjoy a delightful dining experience.

Went to Geoffrey's to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first time there. Everything was very good. Service was exceptional from the valet, to the hostess to the wait staff etc.. Only complaint was the Ahi dinner was somewhat disappointing-the Ahi was not as fresh (rich red color) I expected and had a slightly fishy taste. Will come back again but will give something other than the Ahi a shot.

Great place. I noticed other reviews mentioning the price. You are not going to Burger King and know going in dinner for 2 is $200-300 with drinks and tip. For a special occasion it was worth every penny. The views are fantastic and the wait staff was top notch. The food was fantastic.

What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, on the ocean at Geoffrey's! So beautiful to sit and enjoy the Malibu atmosphere! Ricky was terrific and the food was very good. Lobster cobb could use a few more flavor elements, a bit bland. BUT, it still doesn't sit well with me that when I tried to give some dirty plates to the food runner who brought out out main courses, he told me that it wasn't his job to take them!!!! That is the worst thing a restaurant employee can say to a patron!!!! My friend, IT IS YOUR JOB!!!! This wouldn't have happened 10 years ago at Geoffrey's!! Also a bit uncomfortable when leaving, that the busboys who were obviously trying to get off of work as quick as they could, where dismantling their stations and moving heaters around, and we were at their mercy as to being able to get around them and leave!! Almist got my foot run over by a fast moving heater!! Shouldn't the customer be given the right of way? Again, this would have never been the case with past management! I expected more!

I took my fiancee for her birthday, her #1 pick in places to try. She loved it so I was pleased! I loved it too! The wait staff and customers were extremely hospitable and kind, much different from our previous experiences at other high end venues. The atmosphere and view were extraordinary! Thank you Geoffrey's team!!

Always a pleasant afternoon dining experience at Geoffrey's. Our server was appropriately attentive, as was the bus staff. Oysters were fresh served with three sauces. Eggs Benedict is always excellent here. Only wish the Chef served a different burger, not into the sweet pineapple teriyaki sauce rendition. The bartender makes a great drink and wines by the glass or bottle have a nice variety. You just can't go wrong with the view here, its a special place in Malibu for dining.
