While the food and view was great, service left a bit to be desired as no one checked on us mid meal to see if everything was good and left us waiving down random severs to get additional items needed like, salt/pepper/more coffee. Finally, I accidentally left a cashmere cardigan behind and called immediately to have them hold it till I could return in an hour, they confirmed and I arrived to retrieve it as mentioned. When I checked in with the young lady at the front desk to get it, I witnessed she pulled it out of the behind the counter TRASH that had garbage in it. Completely disrespectful and upsetting.

When we arrived we were immediately reminded of their 2-hour max limit at our table, then when we were seated the waiter again reminded us of the 2-hour limit which made us feel like we were being rushed out as soon as we arrived. Our waiter also told us that our entire order (appetizers, soups/salads and entrees) all needed to be placed at the same time and that they would bring them in courses (this also felt a bit rushed). First out was our soups, which seemed strange since we both ordered an appetizer, and before we were even half way through our soup, the appetizers arrived (so much for timing courses), crowding the small table and making us feel rushed again (not to mention that we the. had to gobble up the soup quickly so the appetizers didn’t get cold). The wait staff was all very nice and the food was amazing as always, but for this caliber of restaurant, they really need to do better to make guests feel welcome and ensure food is served one course at a time the way the chef intends it to be.

This restaurant is stunning! The views of the ocean are incredible, the staff was very attentive, and everything we had was delicious. The warm rosemary bread they started us off with was a nice bonus touch as well. I loved the miso tofu and my boyfriend enjoyed the ahi tuna poke bowl and spicy mango cocktail.

For a mid-week mid-afternoon lunch the place was not crowded, the food was excellent, the service attentive, and the view from our front row table was spectacular on the sunny, not too warm, not too windy, day. It was to celebrate an event and we certainly felt that we had found the perfect place to do it. Well done, we will be back!

Such a nice place for a special getaway meal. The food was delicious.
Note: Although they website says the tables are spaced farther apart than usual, they are not. We didn’t worry about it since we were outside but if that matters to you, you may reconsider going at the moment.

We couldn't have asked for a better view, food, service, cleanliness and place for a weekend brunch. It was also very reasonably priced. The bonus was the beautiful walk to the beach after we ate.

Everything was amazing from the valet drivers being very helpful
, being ready and alert to open the door for myself and my friend. The young ladies at the hostess stand were very friendly, we didn’t have to wait long for our table. They were able to accommodate our reservation when we were running 30 minutes behind. Our server was very attentive, he was very pleasant, always checking on us making sure we were OK , making sure the food was good. The food and drinks were phenomenal. This was our first time being at this restaurant. We had a wonderful first time and definitely will be back if the service stays the same.

Geoffrey’s never lets us down as a stop between LAX to Santa Barbara. The view can’t be beat!! Always friendly service from parking to reservation to dining. Everyone is so nice. Food is great! Have only been for lunch but the tuna poke bowl is a favorite. Would highly recommend and definitely will go back.

Great views, friendly and professional staff, food and drinks where perfect. Just the two hour time was not my favorite experience. I totally understand it,just not the right thing to do when the restaurant is half empty. We had dessert at another venue since we felt uncomfortable after we were told our time was up. Otherwise great.
