Chef Geoff’s is the best and if you don’t sit in Abdel or Marija’s section, you’re doing it wrong.

As with most of the places in this empire the food is ok. The scene is family friendly and the service is warm but indifferent. Steak came out the wrong temperature. An appetizer not at all. Stick to the pizzas and simpler dishes and you’ll be fine.

Had asked for a nice table not scrunched up next to others and they certainly did. This was for a birthday lunch and they told me we could have on the house ice cream with a candle which was nice. Food was delicious (soft Shell crab sandwich, great fried, fish tacos), service attentive and nice and all for a very reasonable cost. Highly recommend !!

I was so excited to take out of town guests here for Mother's Day dinner. The website listed the "Sunset Special" where you could order an app, main, and dessert for $28. When we arrived we were told they weren't doing the special that day "because it would take too long." If that's the case, the website should reflect the change.

Three of our four meals arrived incorrectly or incomplete.

When the bill came we were charged incorrectly.

There was no mention of righting any of these wrongs. I've dined at Chef Geoff's many times and the food is spectacular and the service is normally wonderful. However, I was embarrassed that I took my friends here last Sunday.

We were all looking forward to what Geoff does best - burgers. Only to find there was a special Mothers Day menu and the burgers were not on it. Despite the fact that we were there for a graduation brunch - and it was NOT Mother's Day. Had a rubbery frittata instead. We all left very disappointed.

Thierry was an excellent waiter - informed and engaging. His knowledge of French wines was impressive. Perhaps he will become equally intrigued with California wines. At least we learned how much he likes AtoZ Pinot Noir from Oregon.

There is a particular young woman who is extraordinary! I have interacted with her several times and she is welcoming, professional and attends to guests without hovering. When we saw her on Thursday evening, I was thrilled because I knew we were going to have a lovely experience!

My neighborhood go-to. Especially when I have burned a lot of calories during the day and I can partake of the Sunset Special. I was a bit disappointed in the seasonal change on the crusted salmon; I much preferred the roasted vegetables served during the winter to the mashed potato served now (though the asparagus was fine). But i know that things will be well and i'll find other favorites 9perhaps the trout my companion had).

This used to be a go-to for burgers. It is not reliably as good as once was - the burgers tend to be lost in 'creative' toppings and we long for basic flavors to shine once again. It is an expensive burger once you add a drink, even without an appetizer or dessert.

I went for the Easter brunch. Even though I was a party of one, it was never weird. When dining alone in good restaurants, sometimes I am either overlooked or served extra fast since I am taking up a table for 2 or more people. Thankfully, this has never been the case at Chef Geoff’s.
My eggs benedict were PERFECT and the Bloody Mary’s were so good that I had 2!

We love coming to Chef Geoff's from Annapolis to meet our daughter and family. This time it did not seem up to previous visits. We arrived as they opened on Sunday with a 10:30 reservation but waited while they got our table ready (party of 6 including two children). It was not crowded bc of being early but we were seated at a 4 table with extensions on the end for a crowded 6. With children, the table was not level in places. There were other options on the booth wall with pulling tables together and my personal experience is that children do much better in booths.
Service was okay but took some waiting to get coffee cups refilled. Had to ask twice for another food item. Just not what we are used to here.

Chef Geoff's (New Mexico Ave.) is our go to place for a very enjoyable, and delicious meal. I reserved for dinner as a Birthday celebration. The fish dishes were very tasty and fresh. The Alaskan cod was superb. I requested a banquette seating because we were concerned about the noise volume, and it was the right choice. The 3 of us were able to hold a conversation without straining our ears.
Our only concern was that our server was tardy with our bill. The wait was bit too long after our dessert.
