This was my first time here. Everything was good, I’m definitely coming back soon
The service was horrible. And the people two tables down had the same problem. We did not get our drinks until after we got our food! Same with our neighbors. We felt ignored all night.
We scooted our chairs in closer to the table when the rains came, as we were eating outside. And it worked, just spray from strong rain and wind briefly. So while luncheon would otherwise have been excellent , as usual, this was a notch less so.
Food always top and service super!
A favorite luncheon spot.
Our service was the worst we have experienced ever at Chef Geoff. We were told that there was a big flurry of customers at once. However, that is not a good excuse and no pains were taken to make our experience better.
No one checked with us. It took 20 minutes to get our cocktails. When they arrived, they were not correct. Worse, on drink had about1/4 inch of liquid . Everything took forever. The staff was oblivious and acted as tho they could care less.
We’ve been going to Chef Geoff ever since it opened at its New Mexico Avenue. Frequently.
It will be a long time before we return.
We appreciated the attentive service and the spacious patio, and the food was satisfying.
The shrimp scampi, which we had on actual "national scampi day" was some of the best I've ever tasted, outstanding flavor and freshness, and it arrived piping hot outdoors!
We sat outside under a large umbrella. The service was good. The only issue, 3 of us ordered 2 appetizers instead of entrees. One ordered a “dinner” salad. We got all the apps but her salad didn’t come, “because it wasn’t an appetizer”. We had to ask for her to get her salad.
Excellent outdoor location and great choices re food.
Chef Geoff’s was an okay neighborhood restaurant. The food was okay, the service okay and the setting, okay. It was my first time there and although it was okay I don’t know if I’d go back.
The setting was very nice --- outside on the terrace. The service was excellent and the food was very good, but the portions were a little large. No complaints, though, I had left over veggies for another meal.
Sat outside on a warm spring day. The patio is perfect. The crab cake was excellent.
Very accommodating with seating. Careful distancing and mask. Greater and server great
Pleasant staff and excellent food, but uncomfortable seating outside.
Visiting friends in DC & they took me to Chef Geoff’s. The food & drinks were amazing. The Berry Bramble drink was delicious & the sweet & spicy cauliflower was out of this world. But, the crispy shrimp steamed buns were unbelievable. I could have just eaten several orders of the buns. This place is a must in my next trip to DC.
Really great to emerge from the past year is a safe and clean environment that’s also pleasant and delicious.
We sat outside under the warmth of a heater. The place was bustling. We've been there many times over the years, but this was the first time my food was just meh. No real flavor in the turkey burger, and the fries changed. My Passionfruit mule was excellent, not too sweet. We'll return because we like to support our local businesses.
Always a great dining experience at Chef Geoff’s. This was my first time dining outdoors there and it was excellent! We will be back!
We always enjoy the outdoor ambience on their patio. The staff is always excellent.
we had shrimp and grits and a crab cake - all good!
Always my favorite local spot to eat at. Good ambience and great food
We had a reservation for outdoor seating for 4 at 6:30 but had to wait until after 7 to be seated. The hostess offered us a drink, but wanted us to pay for it!! Our fabulous waitress, who is usually the bartender, competed our drinks and gave us great service to make up for the delay. Chef Geoff needs to put a bonus in her check!! And the hostesses need a little training in customer service. We still love this restaurant!
We’ve been regulars at Chef Geoff’s for 12 years. This was our first outing in six months and we were really looking forward to a bit of normality. We arrived on the dot at six pm and were seated. TWENTY MINUTES LATER, we were still waiting to make our order. No one checked on us until some guy, who was clearly not our waiter, came by to ask if we had been served. We don’t like feeling ignored. That was it for us. We will never be back.
I was happy to try Chef Geoff's, since it had come so recommended by a friend, but it did not meet my expectations - probably because of the hype. It seemed a bit on the pricey side (e.g. $16 for a turkey burger and fries?). The turkey burger was very good, nonetheless, with its brie cheese and apple. Another selection in our party was the salmon - very tasty, but pretty basic - and $22. And the service was pretty inattentive, considering there were exactly six occupied tables total. Happy to try it once; not sure I am motivated to go back
Terrible and the server never brought back my $30 change for the $70 check. I didn’t have time to wait more than 15 mins
It is always fun eating at Chef Geoff's on New Mexico Ave. Good food, pleasant patio and great service!
Great food with very attentive service.
A great Birthday dinner enjoyed by all!
Loved being outside on a warm night...not as loud as inside usually is!
Nice outdoor dining. Service was a little bit slow at lunchtime, but menu is very nice and varied and food was quite good.
Have been coming to Chef Geoff's for years, for our family celebrations. Happy that we can continue to enjoy CG during the pandemic. Staff were very helpful.
(My one minor quibble is that the outdoor chairs are extremely uncomfortable, especially for one who is not tall (<5 feet) like myself - my feet barely touched the ground if I sat all the way back. And, the seat is angled such that if I sit on the edge to be able to rest my feet, the edge digs into the back of my legs. Might seem picky but it is uncomfortable over the course of a whole meal. So I would suggest that petite diners bring a jacket or something to sit on - or eat indoors, after you are vaccinated! :))
We sat outside and found the table to be perfect, our server was attentive but not overly so. Lunch was delicious. We all agreed that we would absolutely return at a later date. Thank you so much Chef Geoff’s for a very enjoyable lunch.
Generally excellent. But one must recognize that with Covid the number of servers seems to be a bit less than in the past. A bit slower but otherwise quite good and food excellent - we cleaned our plates.
Something wrong with reservation system. They lost my reservation even though I had confirmed it.
Outstanding food and service.
The mandarin curry chicken was excellent as always, however, the pork belly on sticky rice had an unpleasant taste. Also, while we knew that pork belly would be fatty, in our serving the fat completely overtook the meat.
Highly recommend this restaurant for patio dining. Inside is somewhat cramped.
Food was awesome! Vibe was great! Service was amazing!
