Service was a bit relaxed. Waited a while for refills and to take order. Food was tasty!
We enjoyed our time at Chef Geoff's for brunch before church. Good food, atmosphere and professional staff. Good find.
Too noisy! Menu need a refresh...tired of the same old.
Absolutely the worst brunch experience I've had in years. It started with my friend asking the bartender for a greyhound before we sat down, and he just looked at him dumbfounded and confused.
When we sat down , it took our waiter several minutes to come and see us. He was short and only took 1/2 the tables drink order (we were a party of 5).
When 10 min later and our 2 drinks didn't arrive - he came back to tell us that there was a back up at the bar (the place wasn't even packed!). We asked if we could place our order and were rudely told "No. I said there was a back up". Just plain rude.
The manager finally came over to take our order.
I will say the hummus and cinnamon donuts were pretty good. I ordered the avocado toast with poached eggs - pretty much the most basic and easy thing to make.
Bread was too thick and not toasted. Nasty turkey bacon was on top of the toast. And the eggs were cold and rock hard. I didn't even bother sending it back since the service was so terrible.
We will not be coming back for brunch, nor any other meals. Avoid this place.
What should've been an hour brunch turned out to be about a two hour brunch. Service was very slow and both the waitress and manager were serving us, they kept forgetting things. The only time the waitress was quick when it was time for the check. This is my second time taking someone here for their birthday. Food was great. Apart from the service being very slow, the staff was very friendly
We had the *best* family birthday dinner! The dining room is broken into rooms that are conducive to private celebrations/dining experiences. The tuna tartar appetizer was phenomenal - perfectly seasoned and uniquely prepared with a fried avocado half. We enjoyed seasonal cocktails along with additional starter selections of the blistered sheishido peppers and the edamame (caution - spicy). Our guests had a range of tastes so entrees included burgers, pumpkin gnocchi, salmon, chicken and fish tacos. We highly recommend this upscale but comfortable restaurant.
Good food, awful service. Server got one of our orders wrong and then disappeared. The correct order took almost 30 minutes to show up. Another female server was generally surly (not just this time but previously as well.) Manager finally opted not to charge us, which is why we recommend giving the place a second chance.
It's a great place for business lunch or group of friends at Happy Hour. They have great deal during restaurant weeks. Definitely our regular hangout place after work.
This restaurant was suggested by a friend for a double date. The food was delicious and the staff especially friendly. It is a bit hard to find from the road and meal prices are a little high, but overall it is a great spot for a cozy night of dining.
Visited for a birthday which was never acknowledged, oh well. The kitchen was off this night but previously have always been satisfied by the quality of the food. We found the pork chop to be okay but not a lot of flavor, the salmon was a little overcooked for being medium and the pizze was smothered in bacon but could have really used more fig and brie. The pizza dough by at the crust was chewy and nearly impossible to cut.
Went to celebrate a friend’s birthday with 7 ladies. Restaurant appearance was suprisingly bad for brunch time (food on floor/carpet needed to be vacuumed). Our service was extremely poor. We were there for over 3 hours- water glasses weren’t filled, cocktail orders not taken, coffee order missed. We were celebrating a birthday (which was specified in reservation and also indicated that day) and no attempt was made to acknowledge it during dessert. The food was decent (popcorn and avocado toast)- but overall very disappointed.
They sat us in the back with other families that had a lot of kids. Definitely kids section. Every time we have been to this location the service is awful. Waiter didn't know the menu. We spent the night trying to flag down any passing by staff to get drinks, spoons, dessert, etc. The food is good and that's why we come back.
We dined at Chef Geoff's before heading to Wolftrap for a concert. The food, always good there, was matched by extraordinary service. We told our server that we had time constraints, and she was terrific about making sure that our food was out in time for us to have a relaxed meal but still get to the venue in plenty of time. My husband is particularly fond of Chef Geoff donuts, and they didn't disappoint! All in all, we love the food and the ambiance at all the Chef Geoff restaurants around town.
Food was delicious - love the healthy options. The sunset dinner with salad, dinner, and dessert is a great value. The salmon was delicious and juicy and the ginger broccoli makes broccoli exciting - imagine that.
Great service - attentive, but not annoying.
The entry into the restaurant itself didn’t start well - we encountered a couple of rude patrons getting out, they might have ask well trampled my six year old on their way out. Well the restaurant cannot control the behavior of its patrons so I would let that slide. The concierge took us to the table without checking on the status of the table so we had to wait standing there awkwardly while they were cleaning and setting up the table. There were three couples Or coworkers who very drunk and extra loud in the next table. They were added distraction to the ambiance. Again - it’s the patrons not the restaurant, let it slide again. The waitress might be some British royalty slumming at this job in her part time. She was too high brow and upper lippy and just left to come back around while we took a moment to decide - without asking whether to leave us some time to think the choices. . And the next time when needed to add another item, she just passed by couple of times without making even contact with the table. It was so hard to get her highness’s attention- had to ask the busboy - (she was a girl) to send the waitress to our table. And I could see the waitress didn’t come sooner after being told - and she had nothing on hand and nothing to do, and waltzed a couple of rounds through tables before showing up. And then the food came, and it was delightful! Well they are doing something right at this place and deserve the chef title on their name. The manager was super nice and even took our leftovers to pack them. His attitude was polar opposite of the waitress that was a welcome relief.
My wife and I were looking for a good dinner in a nice restaurant. Although the restaurant wasn't crowded, we were placed in the bar area. This wouldn't have been an issue except that we were served by the bartender who was inattentive, at best. Ordered a 2014 wine and after being served we noted we were given a 2015. When we mentioned this, the bartender brushed us off stating, "yeah, sometimes we run out and they change it". He asked about bread, then didn't bring it. We had a better interaction with the guy dropping off the food; who did finally bring us some bread. The food was excellent, however, we expected more than Applebee's service.
Cold, wet night, I think they appreciated our coming out. Staff was friendly and attentive. Love that they offered tastes before we purchased a bottle of wine. Husband had the trout with sweet and sour cauliflower (recommended by server) he said best meal he’s had in a long time...outside the home ;)
Entrees are a little pricey but good for a special occasion or date night.
This is my second visit to Chef Geoff's. The service was excellent. I enjoyed my salmon burger and the rose wine that I chose. My friend had a kale pizza that looked scrumptious. We had a great lunch.
The food and service is always excellent at this restaurant. We have been there many times and it is excellent......
Fabulous and fun for Valentine’s Day!
I had to keep waving our sever down to ask for simple things like a fork.
My wife and I have been to CG’s many times, and this special Valentines dinner was no different. The food and the wine list is phenomenal. I suggest you stop by on any given night. You will certainly find something on the menu that gets your attention, and pleases the palate.
Chipped glass, missing side order, long wait just to get drinks, soup delivered without a spoon .... in fairness the first sub par experience I have had here, so I’ll put it down to being overly busy on account of Valentines Day.
How lucky to have Valentine’s Day fall on half price bottle of wine night - not many local restaurants stock Barboursville Cab Franc! The lobster ravioli was fabulous as was the crab cake. Alway a great meal here.
Fat Tuesday at CG was very nice. Always new tastes offered by the Chef. A bit noisy, but the booths allow for a private, romantic dinner. BZ!!
We just had Sunday brunch there. The menu was imaginative without being crazy -- best of all, the food was perfectly cooked. And the service was unobtrusive but completely responsive to our needs.
We started with happy hour prices at the bar. Next, we were seated at a cozy booth which supported conversation and getting to know one another. We were given impeccable service: our server volunteered his recommedations; he checked on our satisfaction with our entrees shortly after we received them; a manager briefly checked on our satisfaction; our water glasses were refilled multiple times without prompting. I had the salmon and a glass of cabernet - both were wonderful.
The bacon-wrapped shrimp salad was fabulous -- perfectly done. Also, had the chocolate cake for dessert and i would go back again and again and again just for THAT DESSERT. And i know chocolate. It was the best I've wrapped by lips around.
We enjoy Geoff’s for business ,Social and Happy Hour gatherings. Overall food and service was excellent. However , I don’t know want was going during our visit but the bar was major issues getting simple drinks prepared. Can’t even do a Cosmos or a simple martini. We had to return the drinks and and the remake were not that great, we just gave up. It’s a Saturday night and one would expect that you have your top people on board. The waitress finally admitted that it was a bar helper and not a bartender making our drinks. Oh well , next time we will stick to a nice bottle of wine.
Food was good. Service was about a “meh”as you could get. No highs, no lows. Would have thought it would have been a little more attentive especially when it wasn’t all that busy. Valet service looked real fancy though.
Open table only allows reservations up to 12 people here and the restaurant graciously accommodated our request for a 13th seat without a problem. Food is great though many items on the menu were not available. They had run out of several apps and entrees, which was disappointing though not really surprising as we were there in the evening on the last day of Restaurant Week.
We have come several times for RW over the years and Chef Geoff's makes a point of offering most/all of the menu (other restaurants only offer certain things), which is nice. But you have to be careful because if you end up choosing cheaper options without realizing it, the RW deal is fairly close to normal price. This isn't really a complaint as I don't think you run much risk of finding 3 courses of options that would normally run less than the RW price, but if you really want to walk away feeling like you got a deal, this is the week to go for pricier entrees.
The food is outstanding. The various seafood options were all available (except the calamari app), and I really enjoyed the BBQ shrimp app and swordfish special! I've had the shrimp and grits before too and HIGHLY recommend it.
The place has usually been pretty full and quite loud when we have gone before, but Sunday night at 8:15 PM, we had the room to ourselves and were entirely at fault for how loud that room got! The staff was really polite and accommodating. The server even offered to handle split checks and all the awkward complications customers often add to split checks without being asked to, which was over and above. (This in particular is big change from past experiences at this same restaurant.) And while we stayed quite late, we were not rushed out at all. That said, part of why we were there so long was that the food doesn't exactly fly out of the kitchen. Again, not really a complaint in this case since we were there to enjoy time together with friends in a nice place and that's exactly what we got.
I think this restaurant has become very mundane - there's not much special. Service is just ok. Food is nothing to write home about. Sorry to be bleak - I was a fan when it first opened but I think Geoff needs to spend more time there.
I've been to Chef Geoff's before so chose it for my bday dinner BUT the experience this time was not good. So many options were not available and we were there on a very uncrowded, early part of dinner service. On top of that the waiter was a ghost...we had to ask on 10 occasions for water refills. He was simply unresponsive. It was not a good birthday dinner.
I must say this was not the best visit to Chef Geoff’s. Although it was restaurant week and you would think they would stock accordingly, a lot of things they were out of on Sunday and the service were slow. We had a couple of people in our party that had seafood allergies and that was pretty much all that was left on the menu. One good thing was that they were knowledable about the menu for allergies and took precautions to not cross contaminate food brought to the table. I would probably try to give them one more try but definetly not during restaurant week.
Went for Restaurant Week on the Sunday. We had reservations for 1:30 PM but did not get seated until 35 minutes past our reservation time even though we got there 20 minutes early. When we went to order they were out of almost all the appetizers including two out of three that we wanted. Besides those issues, the food is outstanding and the value is very good for Restaurant Week. In addition, they provided some kind of carrot cake bread that was delicious. Lesson learned is to book an early time on the weekend.
The food was good and our server did his best to accommodate us. We were not happy with the fact that we had a 1:15 PM reservation yet we were not seated until roughly 45 minutes after our reserved time. In addition, many of the items advertised on their Restaurant Week menu were not available.
I was very disappointed with my brunch experience at Chef Geoff during restaurant week. My reservation was for 1:00pm but we were not seated until nearly 1:30 and we didn’t get the final check until 3:45pm (although we ordered the standard 3 courses, 2-person party, no loitering). When we finally got seated at our table it took an extended amount of time for our waitress to greet us and our table was dirty along with the bread plates. I do understand that it was restaurant week so I’m trying to be sensitive about it. Additionally, we discovered they ran out of 5 of the more popular starter options and the espresso ice cream, every item my wife preselected while waiting to get seated. One positive is that the main course was well prepared and arrived piping hot! After eating our main course it took our waitress about 20 mins to come back to our table and take our dessert order. Even after we placed our dessert order, we had to wait 20 addition mins for the lackluster dessert. Only at the end, without prompting or sour faces, did our waitress offer an apology for her poor service and encouraged us to return. We were very disappointed in the whole experience and hopefully this will be a lesson learned for the management team. Perhaps Chef Geoff should consider developing a standard RW menu rather than disappointing the customers by running out of the popular items.
Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait about 25 or so minutes to get seated. Service was a little slow, but the food was very good. I had the avocado toast which was delicious!
Tried the brunch for Restaurant Week and were very pleased with the menu selections. My husband and I kept changing our minds. Food was excellent and service was a little busy due to the restaurant week crowd. Will definitely eat here again!
We were a party of four there for lunch as part of restaurant week. Several of us had the Jalapeño Lime Steak Tacos, unfortunately the Steak was very tough and it was disappointing. I had the Greek Side salad which was also just average. The Dark Chocolate Ganache Cake for my desert was very good.
The service was also very slow, but that was expected being restaurant week.
