Waitress was a bit slow and inattentive to requests , ie a knife and fork, mustard 😳

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.

Always reliable and always delicious. This is a neighborhood restaurant for me and when I want something special but not expensive, I go for their Sunset Special which never disappoints.
