    Lunch at Chef Geoff's with a friend is perfect for catching up at leisure over a great meal, with warm and helpful service. Our young waiter was as charming and helpful as could be. And after lunch we wanted to linger so ordered hot drinks and put his excellent former barista experience to good use. Can't imagine the neighborhood without Chef Geoff's!

    We did not have a pleasant meal and will not go back. The food was ok, but the restaurant obviously over booked and there were not enough servers. After 20 minutes we had no waiter and not even a glass of water so we had to go to the front and ask a manager for help. The manager was courteous and got us our drinks and did not charge us for them. The waitress finally appeared and was pleasant but overwhelmed with tables. Our glasses of wine appeared only when we were most of the way through dinner.

    We took relatives here in June and it was much better than yesterday’s meal. We went for a birthday brunch and the eggs Benedict were ordinary and undercooked. They sat on a cornbread that was too sweet. The blackberry Mocktail was delicious. The ricotta donuts were very nice. People at our table didn’t complain about their burritos, But the hamburgerwas just “ok.” We love the staff, and the outdoor seating area is lovely on a late summer day. But the food was so disappointing!!

    Beautiful evening for dining on the lovely spacious patio. Inside and outside were packed but our service was very good and the food came out in good time. Bar was a little backed up with alcoholic beverages but no big deal. The menu has so many great choices, I always have trouble deciding.

    I made a 5:30PM reservation for outdoor seating and it could not be honored; the host even said, "I know you requested outdoor seating for your 5:30PM reservation, but we are fully committed outside until 9PM". I explained that we had one individual in our party that was pregnant; however, they were not able to accommodate...

    Went with a party of 3. Two of us liked our pasta dishes, one us got a salad and it was subpar - old veggies, and really over priced for the small portion of steak on it. Decent restaurant overall, and I’d go back (especially for their happy hour, which is nice), but it’s one of those places where you have to know what to order to have a good meal as not everything is the best.

    Food was not great (was surprised as food has been pretty good in the past.)Soup was mediocre hot, salad nothing special. Asked a runner for bread which never appeared. The server never came back to ask how everything was. Pretty disappointed.

    I love Chef Geoff's--every time is the latest best time. Yesterday, I ordered the meat loaf--again--because I understood it was the last day it was being offered for a while. This time, it was a smaller portion, dried out, and more or less uninspired. I have to believe it was an older batch held for the last-day-for-a-while. Why did I not complain? Because it was still very good, the presentation was as always impressive, and the sauce (mainly BBQ) was once again delicious. I was also very hungry. So this was but a minor blip in a long sequence of five star lunches. I would encourage everyone who thinkngs about dining at Chef Geoff's to do so and take my report in perspective.

    Food was good, varied menu with something for everyone. Service quite lacking - not sure if it was a short staff night or not, but we got minimal attention from staff unfortunately. A few times, a host helped out when he could tell that we were frustrated by lack of service.

    The bartender was bothered by the fact that my guy and I chose to wait 12 minutes until happy hour started because we knew we were going to be there a while and wanted to enjoy our time to the fullest. We sat and watched a game on Saturday — and it was my birthday — he was rude about it and scoffed at us. The older gentleman who’s always there. Not sure his vibe but it is very unwelcoming.

    Such a lovely night celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday. The food was delicious - I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was a huge portion. I wish I could have taken it home! My daughter had the shrimp scampi pasta and loved it. We'll be back. Thank you for a great night!

    We’ve used carry-out and in-person dining many times. Last two experiences - one of each - a disappointment. Yesterday I planned on ordering crab cake and was told, without explanation, “no longer on menu”, yet on website that morning. Cauliflower steak over cooked and sauce very sweet. The waiter was overly talkative , mostly about himself, interrupted our conversation, stayed over long and made unsolicited, naive, disrespectful comments about death of Queen Elizabeth.

    The most beautiful outdoor dining spot in DC - shaded, large patio set away from the street. Just lovely. Food is ok-to-good, nothing special anymore. It used to be so much more inventive.

    I had not been here for a long time, and was very pleasantly surprised by: the quality of service from server Ben, including his good advice on choices and his friendliness; by the menu choices and their reasonable prices; and by the excellent quality of the good and cuisine. I had the mushroom ravioli, which was really, really tasty, and my dining companion had the chicken curry, which he also said was very good.

    We had not been to Chef Geoff's in a very long time as our last visit several years ago the food was just ok. So we were very pleasantly surprised how wonderful the food was and we had a terrific server. The pizza we had for a starter was yummy, as was the asian crunch - that was outstanding. The salmon burger was very tasty but fell apart when I tried to pick it up. Shrimp scampi was excellent, and the chili lime salmon wonderful. Looking forward to our next visit - this time it will be a return visit very soon1
