Crab cake sandwich was a bit on mushy side, but otherwise food was great. Good sized portions, very attentive waitress. Consistent and reliable.

Service was outstanding, we were running late and they found us a table and then the server expedited our meal so we still got to the theater on time. Very responsive as well as great food.

I tried Chef Geoff’s with my boyfriend for the 1st time on Valentine’s Day. The food was okay but the reason I’m giving it such a low rating however, is because our service was horrible. Granted, it was Valentine’s Day so I understand our server was busy but we had to ask 3 different people over the course of 30 min for a drink menu. By the time we got it, we decided not to order another drink because we waited for too long. Additionally, my bf didn’t get his baked potato that came with his meal. Normally wouldn’t be a big deal but our server didn’t come back to check on us the entire meal so by the time he came back, my boyfriend had finished eating. Also, we we never able to get water refills. It was frustrating because he seemed to be very attentive to every table around us except ours. Overall, was very disappointed with our experience, especially since it was Valentines day.

The evening started out well, with the waiter providing drinks. However, when we put in our orders for the main course dinners, something went wrong. One of the people in my party changed their initial order from a beef dish to a fish dish. We believe that change caused our dinner orders to get bumped back in order of preparation. Furthermore, one of the dinner entrees was never prepared, causing the waiter to re-place the order. All of this delay and confusion ruined Valentines Day for us. to their credit, Chef Geoff did not charge us for one of the entrees.

Crowded for Valentibe's Day, but reservation made through Open Table was honored and we were seated at correct time. As usual, food and service were great. We were not especially hungry, but the wo CG Burgers wrre properly prepared and the accompanying French fries were delicious. We have eaten here nunerous times before and the menu has a very nice variety of both appetizers and main courses. Only "complaint" is later that evening I received an email from Open Table semi-chastising me for not honoring the reservation I had not only made but indeed had the receipt in my hand when the email came through. I wrote back and explained I had been there. Also called restaurant directly and they said, without knowing exactly what had happened, that the hostess probably did not realize it was an Open Tabke reservation. Anyway, highly recommend this quite good neighborhood place. Open Table follow up email absolved me of the "crime."

My friend and I came following a Shakespeare Theatre matinee to celebrate my friend's birthday. We had inconsistent service from our server when it started to get crowded (Saturday night), but we always got someone's agreeable attention. The food is ALWAYS top notch. Chef Geoff remains my favorite restaurants.

Went there for restaurant week. Portions were generous, perhaps too generous for lunch, but food was rather salty and service was very slow. Even for the level of busy that they had, it was veeeeery slow.

Nice restaurant for everyday dining. I opted for the restaurant week menu and started with a mimosa which tasted too much like cheap champagne-very bitter despite it being a peach mimosa. The breakfast tacos were good but nothing special about them. The highlight of the meal was the chocolate ganache cake for dessert, and the ice cream tasted homemade which was an added bonus.

This was restaurant week so it was packed. Our server was new but was working as hard as he could and doing a pretty good job in spite of a backed up bartender and mislabeled tickets. We've all been there right? Apparently not for the people sitting next to us. Rude and very demanding to be "comped" for their trouble. The head waiter handled everything with respect while protecting the new server. I'd go back in a heartbeat and ask for our server again. Another reason why everyone should work in the service industry!

Never a disappointment at Chef Geofs. The salads are huge, fresh, dressing on the side and the Greek salad I shared with my date was fresh Romaine lettuce garnished with olives, pepperocini, homemade croutons, red onion. My date enjoyed a Chef Geoffs burger cooked to perfection with luscious sweet potato fries. I enjoyed a succulent salmon burger with French fries that were crisp yet not greasy. Malbec wine and the evening was certainly fulfilling.

As always, Chef Geoff's delivered in spades. Great food. Probably the best burger in all of DC. Amazing wine. And a dessert that I am still dreaming of having again:)

Did notice, though, that even at an early hour it was hard to hear.

Chef Geoff's is a neighborhood reliable eatery for us, and it did not disappoint. Our company was a little bothersome with a baby and really, really antsy, parent-hitting 2(?) year old on one side of us and twin girls ~16-20 months on the other side of us. We prevailed, but maybe all the kids get seated in the same area? or the private room, when available? versus on either side of a nice, quiet, want to have a conversation family?
Waiter was excellent, food good as always.

If you like a waitress who does not speak English proficiently and stops at your table every three minutes to take your order and you like mediocre food than good. It seemed that she wanted us out of the place asap. She needed training. Add to that a very indifferent host and it seems that the place has gone down hill from being a fav neighborhood go to haunt. Its a shame. We need it!
