Our server Nelson was prompt, efficient, and responded favorably to our every request. His service for my booth table made the meal most enjoyable for my two guests and me.

Wanted to avoid unmasked diners in main room. Talking a lot, large group, when not eating. No masks.

They reseated us in a private dining room. Only one other person in large space.

Food and service were spectacular.

This Chef Geoff’s is special. Don’t miss it.

From the Professor of Travel.

Nos dieron una reserva para las 9:45 pm. Sin aclarar que cerraban la cocina a las 10:00 pm. Nos atendieron apresuradamente y prácticamente nos sacaron corriendo. La comida es buena, pero el costo muy alto para el tiempo que pudimos estar allá. No querían que estuviéramos allá. Es ridículo que haya que hacer una reserva cuando el sitio estaba prácticamente vacío y más ridículo que la hayan colocado a 15 minutos de cerrar. Nos sentimos estafados pagando casi 100 dólares para comer de afán y con mal servicio.

We were here the day after Christmas and it was late, so it was understandable that the service was a little slow. They weren’t bitter or cranky about being there and we appreciated that. Our waiter was really good. The food was fantastic. A little pricey for what we had but again it is DC. Highly recommend this establishment.

The service wasn’t good. Maybe because it was Christmas Day. The bartender was servicing us she came 20 mins after we sat down.
The food was just ok. Drinks were so so

The noise level was low because there were only two other couples in the restaurant. The food was good, though the pasta that came with my Chicken Parmesan was overcooked and too soft to eat. The waiter was gracious about it.

I hadn't been to Chef Geoff's since uptown many years ago. Some friends from out of town were staying at a hotel across the street so we decided on Chef Geoff's here. The food was excellent! The only minor thing was they were (understandably) understaffed (between the pandemic and right before Christmas). Busing the table between courses had been overlooked until we mentioned it. It didn't have an adverse affect on our experience; just mentioning it to remind others during these times to be patient and politely let them know if they overlook something.

A good place for brunch. I had breakfast burritos, which were nicely spicy. The service is good and pleasant, although they are clearly understaffed--as is everywhere these days. A very enjoyable meal for six friends.

Excellent service for our party of 9! I was so impressed how well our large group was managed. We were in a smaller side room and it was nice and peaceful too. Everyone liked their food and the prices are very reasonable. I had the turkey, pesto and bacon sandwich on ciabatta bread and it was as delicious. The French toast and the Asian salad looked awesome too. My friend with celiac disease loves this place for the good gluten free options. A lot of care was given to the allergy concerns in my group. We will have future gatherings here for sure.

Came for brunch on the Saturday after Thanksgiving with family. Service was great - prompt and attentive, but not overbearing. Food was delicious - classic dishes like eggs Benedict and steak and eggs were on point, and we enjoyed a dish of the ricotta doughnuts for the table. The noise level was perfect, we could all hear each other comfortably, and the floor to ceiling glass brought in lots of natural light.

In DC for a few days and this was close to our hotel. Nice menu with interesting selections. It was hard to make a choice. Wine list was decent. Out food came quickly and was delicious. The fish was very fresh, the sides were interesting. The dessert menu was extensive and varied.

Lots of gluten free options, which is always appreciated.
