Went on a very busy Sat night. Sat at the bar. I thought by being at the bar (second group at bar) that we woukd be well attended to Food drinks silverware etc all came in a choppy manner. Difficult to get bar tenders attention. Food was okay - nothing spectacular being a cook myself. Overrated for price

This is my second visit and again I was pleased. The waitress was very attentive and exceptionally friendly. My sea bass had great flavor though it was a tad undercooked- I appreciated the concept though. I enjoyed the house salad and my cocktail as well. Adequate selection of options on the menu. I will definitely be back.

While in El Paso for work, a colleague and I chose Geogeske for dinner. They have a great menu with a few gluten free options for my co-worker. The place has an old diner feel that has been cleaned up to a nice place to eat. The food was great and they have a nice selection of wines. I would go back in a heartbeat.

We went here since it was convenient as we were going to a show afterwards that was across the street. The atmosphere/restaurant was fine, nothing over the top. Food was good, but I think G2 on the east side is a little better. I got the pan-seared scallops and vegetables. The veggies were cooked and seasoned well, as were the scallops. My fiance got the club sandwich with macaroni and cheese. The macaroni and cheese here was a little bland, which was disappointing since I hyped it up to my fiance. He enjoyed the sandwich but thought it was a little odd that they put mustard on a club; said it wasn't bad-weird, just weird. Overall, it was good but I don't know if we'll make efforts to go back again.

The food, from the drinks to the main course was just sublime. It was not complex food, but perfect executed, highlighted by impeccable service. The scallops, steak, mac and cheese are yummy! We left fully sated, something that doesn't often occur.

Filled with loud fans drinking and eating. Before the BIG GAME, GeoJeskes never missed a step! Food was still yummy, service was very good! We love this place. We had a party of 7, we were seated within 3 minutes of our reservations. We had a really friendly, efficient waiter. Never felt once that we would miss The Game. Thanks guys.

First time eating here. Food (double cut pork chop/apple/garlic mashed potatoes) & drink (cucumber martini) all good - but not great. Service pleasant - obviously many repeat customers as servers knew many by name & their expected order. Howver, this place has NO atmospher - mighht as well be eating in an elementary school cafeteria - bare unadorned open space with cafeteria tables. Uninspired & unattractive. Would I return? Maybe. Not sure. You could do much worse regarding food in El Paso, & honestly, there haven't been many places that do much better food-wise in El Paso.

One of our favorites. Parking is tight but they do have valet for a gratuity only fee. Reservations are a good idea during busy times. Food and service is always great with a menu to fit almost everyone’s taste buds.

I had not been to Geogeske in quite awhile, but I had my usual favorite which is the house sashimi salad and it was delicious. My mom had the salmon blt and it was also delicious. French press coffee was also very tasty and the service was fast and friendly. I will not wait so long to go back again, especially since parking was easy given that there are certain spaces exclusively for Geske customers.

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.

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.
