 (Washington DC)·Dined 4 days ago

It was a disappointing evening all around. We asked in our reservation for a quiet table. They tried to seat us at the busiest location. We then ate at the bar because it was quieter and less busy. Strangely, they didn't know how to make a margarita???? First the server brought a drink that was a vodka drink, then when she returned with a margarita it was terrible tasting. The food was mixed --- 2 of the 4 were good, the other two lacking. The steak in the tacos was very tough, full of fat. Not what you expect in a $20 taco dinner. The server was indifferent and lacked attention to detail (forgot the dressing on the side, etc.) There are far better places to eat in the area.

I've been to Chef Geoff's many times over the years, and have always been pleased with my meal and the service. However, I was not at all pleased with this visit...either I ordered something that just wasn't satisfying to me, or the on duty lunch chef was in lacking skill or creativity. That said, one poor experience won't keep me from returning...overall, they've done a good job and consistently.

It was a nice, relaxing restaurant where you could carry on a conversation. The major problem was that both my friend and I had a very hard time finding it using GPS. There are no signs pointing to the horseshoe front entrance behind Tiffany's. Each of us spent over 10 minutes driving up and down Rte 7 and the access road trying to find it.

For the price, the food isn't really that impressive. My Parisian eggs were cold in the middle. The server disappeared after she dropped the check. I'd go somewhere else next time.

We hadn't been for a while but, were quickly reminded why we used to come regularly. The seasonal menu selections were great - the pumpkin/black bean soup and the pecan crusted salmon with mustard sauce and seasonal veggies were particular standouts. The fried calamari was beyond tender and practically melted in our mouths. Service was wonderful and our waitstaff all charming. We had a relaxing evening enjoying great food. Thank you!

No James Beard Award, but..

Chef Geoff is never going to light a true foodie's lamp. But the menu is fun, the food is consistently creative and well prepared, and the overall vibe reflects the namesake's upbeat, positive personality. I'm a fan and will returning, and recommending.

We had a birthday brunch here. All of the food was very good, we had traditional and smoked salmon eggs benedict, and cream stuffed frencb toast, a bloody mary, and mimosas. The eggs benedict were a little heavy on garlic butter/oil on the bread and short on hollandaise, but when we requested a bit more of the latter it was brought cheerfully and right away. The side potatoes were really good. Prices very reasonable for what we ordered. A little sad that my note in the reservation about it being a big birthday was apparently not seen, but our server did seem very busy with some other big and boisterous groups.

We have been to Chef Geoff's Tysons a number of times and always enjoy it. We were there on a Friday night and were seated immediately in an active but not crowded restaurant. We ordered drinks right away, and then looked at the menus and the specials and ordered appetizers and entrees. Then the bread came. Then the appetizers came. Then we ate the bread and appetizers and the plates were cleared away. But still no drinks, which we had ordered long before the appetizers. The server could not have been more apologetic when we raised the issue, and the manager also was apologetic and removed the drinks (which finally came at the same time as our entrees!) from the bill. Our food was very good, and we'll give them one more try, but they need to get it together in terms of service from the bar. Surprisingly, there were a number of people seated at the bar, and I'm sure what they could have been doing because based on our experience they were not being served drinks . . .

Very nice table and the manager came by to introduce himself. The food was delicious. The draft beer was a seasonal choice from Germany but not a memorable brew. They have many selections of wine and draft and we always enjoy dining at the Tyson’s location.

Had the Pecan Crusted Salad, was way over-priced and the crusted chicken tenders on it were like cardboard. Had trouble cutting them with a knife. Cicken was previously cooked earlier sitting under a heat lamp that was not very hot.

I always enjoy a meal at Chef Geoff....both lunch and dinner. The best deal is to arrive early for the happy hour during the week...have a few drinks at a reasonable price and take the last drink to the dinner table. Or enjoy their happy hour menu...especially the hamburgers. All good.

For dinner we went to the dining room - one friend had the pineapple and ham pizza (large enough for two)...another one of the specials for the evening - a crispy shrimp dish which she said was very good....and I had the beef taco. I will say it was a nice portion - but the beef was rather tough and tasteless (that could use some improvement).

Service was excellent...will always be a favorite place to go.

I was there on Labor Day and the staff certainly came across as not wanting to be there since the joint was dead. The swordfish was rock hard (overcooked ), the donut hole dessert was stale and hard. The Brussels sprout and shrimp bun apps were acceptable. It's an old, tired place and it shows in the cuisine and service.

The restaurant was fairly empty late on a Sunday, and the waiter was nice, but a few things still slipped through the cracks--refilling a drink, and a special request for something on a salad. Otherwise it was fine. Our Caesar salads were very fresh, and the added chicken was seasoned perfectly--actually one of the best salads I've had for a while. Our friends enjoyed their food too--a burger and a crab cake sandwich. Will definitely go back some time.

Maybe it was because it was a holiday weekend, but my recent dinner (for 3) at Chef Geoff was a weird night. I am a fan of the New Mexico Avenue location, but the Tyson's version is a deprived and distant relation. The restaurant was virtually empty when two of our three arrived, yet we couldn't be seated until the party was complete. We sat at the bar and the bartender apparently was the only waiter for the front room so it took close to 10 minutes to get water and two drinks (one was served and then the bartender walked away). And they were provided by the person who was staffing the welcome desk.

The space is really nice; nothing about dining there is equal to the decor. The food is generally mediocre. The swordfish entree was a very thin piece that couldn't have weighed more than a few ounces. There was a strawberry cheesecake that was nicely presented but just lacked any of that wonderful cheesecake texture or flavor. It just seems like a restaurant that the owner doesn't care about and has banished from the family to work out its issues on its own. It just doesn't compare in any way to New Mexico, even though it's in an affluent and busy location, albeit not a neighborhood like NM. It was a weird night. I can't imagine why I'd return.

Good food with a creative menu. Only issue was wife's seat was torn and it had a huge spot on it. That didn't just tear - spend the money. Also why do you sit me at a table where the waiter is storing his towels, water and other stuff behind? Plenty of tables but you put me the waiter station? That is so irksome. We were dressed nice and had a reservation, why go out of your way to give us the least desirable seat? I hate being put near the waiter service station or the restroom, but it infuriates me when the restaurant is 3/4 empty, I have a reservation and you still do it. THINK!
Having said that, the food was good, but not fantastic. The menu accomodates every taste and has plenty of options.

My wife and I ate at Chef Geoff's this past Saturday night. The service was very good. Our waiter was quick and unintrusive and the food came very quickly. I ordered a caesar's salad to start, which was excellent, and the pesto gnocchi for my main course, which was also good. My wife ordered the spicy shrimp and rice dish, which she enjoyed. She asked beforehand how spicy the dish was (she doesn't like it too spicy) and the waiter told her it's slightly more spicy than mild, and he was right on.

There was a large family table seated next to us with probably 12 people seated there including kids, and they were very energetic. It didn't bother my wife and I, but the older gentleman and his wife seated behind us complained to the host.

One thing I was a bit disappointed in is that the ability to pay with the OpenTable app didn't present itself. OpenTable's site suggested that Chef Geoff's allowed paying with the app, and I expected to be prompted on my phone that my check was ready to view and pay, but I never was. I opened the app many times to try to find an option to pay for my meal but I never found one.

All in all a good night out.

Reservations for a table of six on a Sunday evening. The Tysons restaurant was not busy.
Arrived on time for the reservations made for 7 p.m. Table not ready? Plenty of empty tables? We did appreciate the round table selected to set for our service. It was easy for conversation thru out the evening with our guests. Staff seemed to be rather disorganized starting at the host stand into the dining room for service all evening. Not the usual attentive service this Sunday evening.

In fact, noticed that we were charged for an additional glass of wine which we did not order, and the waiter was quick to say, "Oh, I have the correct one right here." So, if we would have not noticed the over charge, we would have paid for an additional glass of wine?

The food was okay. Definitely, not the wow experience, and raving fan which we normally are of Chef Geoff's Tysons. Rather disappointed, as we had four guests with us for the evening as a thank you for their services to our business.

I dined here during Restaurant Week. My party and I were seated promptly right after we arrived. The menu had a wide variety of options. I am not sure if I would return. The Spinach Salad was good, Parisian Eggs Benedict was good, mimosas good, and the cheesecake was delicious! I did not care for the service, the cold, stale coffee cake cake or the burnt donuts. The waiter was not attentive for a restaurant at that level. Once the concern was brought to the manager's attention, the service became better! Mike the manager was wonderful! He did a great job of accommodating us!

This was probably our third visit here but definitely felt the food was just ok. The calamari appetizer was very good. My crabcake was bland and came with no sauce and the cauliflower was dry. My husband's salmon was cooked perfectly but was sitting on top of gummy mashed potatoes that were swimming in oil. The restaurant was quite empty for a Saturday evening.
