Great food as always. Friendly and helpful staff. Well set up for outdoor dining during winter. Great touch of having a heat lamp for each table.

A nice winter day under the heat lamps! As crowded as restaurants are allowed to get outdoors these days, and with good reason--excellent fish tacos and burgers just the right shade of pink, swift and cheerful service; what's not to like?

Pumpkin chili was excellent as was the shrimp scampi. The plated salmon was hit or miss in terms of the vegetables and presentation but was tasty.

My two friends and I ate outside to celebrate a birthday. We are very grateful for the good service and accommodations so that we could dine outdoors. Where were multiple heaters and hot drinks were refilled when we needed it. Thank you!

We were pretty much the only patrons for the evening. Given rising covid cases, you think the restaurant would be accommodating to outdoor seating. They have patio tables and plenty of propane gas lamps... yet, we were told to sit indoors or be cold outside because they are not turning the heat lamps on! We stayed and ate in the cold since we want to support a neighborhood restaurant but my money will be going elsewhere now. Food was nothing special and the waitress was nice.

The food was amazing and the service was so friendly and attentive! The only thing I would say is that we were able to make a reservation for 9:00 p.m. but when we got there we found out the kitchen closed at 9:00 so we felt rushed. The staff didn't rush us at all but we felt bad for making people stay late. Other than that, it was wonderful and we'll be back.

We ordered pecan salmon with a ham and veggie hash. Fantastic and so different! Our server was efficient and had the best personality ever encountered! We sat on the terrace with a glowing heat lamp. It was so cozy and made us feel normal in 2020!

The only trouble I have with Chef Geoff's is choosing what to order — I want everything! Trust me, I can be very picky but every offering on the menu is truly delicious: classic with a twist of originality. Also important, the staff is top-notch: highly professional and well-trained yet warm and personable. This may sound weird, but they are all — from bartenders to busboys —intelligent and highly intuitive. They always sense when you want privacy and when you want to socialize and share a laugh. But what I deeply admire about Chef Geoff's is the restaurant's highly developed sense of community. The owner, Geoff Tracey, had the compassion and intelligence at the onset of the pandemic to turn his restaurant into a community pantry, selling meals and drinks to go but also items that weren't always available at grocery stores: disposable gloves, sanitizing wipes, bleach, etc. This not only helped the community but kept his staff employed during the shutdown. Bravo, Geoff! You're not just a great chef, you're a class act and a great neighbor. No wonder Dr. Fauci loves this place.

Having such a terrific and consistent restaurant in one's neighborhood is a real treat. We don't go out for meals a lot, but when we do, Chef Geoff's is always near top of the list for consideration. Recent visit just confirmed that. Well prepare and very flavorful dinner accompanied by friendly and efficient service staff. Outdoor seating well spaced and they clearly "get" the requirements for safe dining in this year of challenges.

Again, we'll be back.

I have been going to Chef Geoff for decade. It is my favorite restaurant. I have written many reviews. Unfortunately I do not have time to write a specific review for our wonderful moonlight dinner on the patio. Please look at the photos I will attach.
