Good value for Restaurant week. Tasty food. One comment, why do the waiters bring the main course when we haven't finished the appetizer? Had to send it back. A restaurant of this caliber should train their waiters and have them check if we've finished the first course. It's happened a few times, I told the manager but this situation continues - unpleasant.

This was my second time eating at Chef Geoff’s. The service, and presentation was superb. The food was delicious! I would highly recommend Chef Geoff’s to others. The added bonus was the validated free parking behind the restaurant.

This has been my favorite neighborhood restaurant since I moved to AU Park in 2013. The food is reliably delicious and well presented, the menu varied, the service pleasant and competent, and the ambiance charming with a great outdoor patio. I do venture out to other parts of the city and to the many new venues in my area, but I still routinely enjoy CG.

The place did not at all comply with social distancing rules. It was packed with to many people including children. It was dangerous for the kids. Also we were not asked for our vac cards.

Chef Geoff always gives the best value and deal, and Restaurant Week is a shining example. I was able to have a glass of wine as my first course! Who else does that? And it meant I "had room" for dessert, last of the three courses.

Restaurant Week offering was really special. Enjoyed option for a glass of wine in lieu of the first course; main course (we both had the ahi turn) was so substantial that we took leftovers home. Desserts were super too; homemade cookies were excellent. Will definitely return!

Outstanding dishes in a contemporary-traditional setting that makes you feel like it's a special occasion. We loved the salads, steak, tortellini and salmon. Desserts were wonderful.

The shrimp and grits are otherworldly good, and after a hiatus, they were due to be back on the menu by late January. The Madras Curry Chicken is excellent, as are the blackened fish tacos. In fact, almost everything is good. I never go wrong by having lunch or dinner here. The service is always very good as well.

Party of 4, we took advantage of restaurant week and enjoyed the magnificent choice of entrees, appetizers, salads and desserts. All the entrees were served to all parties together. Apple crumble dessert, to die for! Specialty crafted drinks were unique and tasted great. Our waiter, Carlos F was superb.

We sat outside for lunch, heat lamps, comfy chairs, excellent service, and the food-DELICIOUS!!! The three of us thought we would probably eat half, take home half, but no-too good not to finish it all! Will definitely be back!

First time to CG "post" pandemic (are we there yet?) We've eaten here 100 times. It's always been serviceable, maybe even very good. Great for burgers and beer. But there's something new going on. Much improved menu, really excellent stuff coming out of the kitchen, same solid service. Seems like CG has a new lease on life. We'll eagerly head back.

Our server, Ben, was excellent! He was very knowledgeable of menu items and made very good recommendations. The food was good too! We did notice that many of the staff weren’t wearing masks. I can’t recall if the Mayor had mandated masks for restaurants. I know she had lifted it for some businesses to make their own policy, but wasn’t sure if that had been reversed at the time. Nonetheless, my party and I were all fully vaccinated and enjoyed our meal and experience. This wasn’t our first time there, so that indicates that we like this place.
