    Nice night to sit outside for Chef Geoff’s happy hour. New items on the happy hour menu - chicken lollipops and asparagus risotto balls were very tasty! And it’s always fun to be served by the ever energetic, friendly and efficient bartender Erin.

    Been to chef Geoff’s many times and historically the food is generally good, basic and usually everyone could find something they might like. The menu seems to have changed and many of the newer items such as the Hong Kong bowl was disappointing and generally tasteless.. hamburger and the steak had by some in our party were good. Caesar salad was okay not memorable. When the r manager came to the table and asked. When we told him, it seems that he dismissed our views. Perhaps when the summer menu returns so will the quality and flavor.

    Our server clearly wasn’t up to par but she didn’t tell us she was in training until half way through our meal. She deleted my friend’s meal before it could be submitted to the kitchen and had no idea until she checked and noticed her meal was missing. Thankfully, the manager delivered her food personally.

    This was a lunch visit for two of us - sat outdoors in very nice weather. My friend had the Andes bowl and I had the turkey burger - both very good. And finished with the Chocolate Decadence - aptly named and quite enjoyed.

    Chef Geoff's is convenient. Food is good but not spectacular. Prices are about average. Service is good. Noise became too loud to have comfortable conversation. I resent the added "service charge" which seems to be designed to punish those who voted for a fair wage for servers.

    Food was good but service was not up to its usual high bar. Chef Geoff's is our neighborhood restaurant and we recommend it highly, usually for both the food and the service. Perhaps the person who helped us this weekend was a trainee. The bacon waffle with fried chicken was delicious, and my wife enjoyed a chopped kale salad. The mocktail she ordered was also excellent.

    Food was very good. It’s the second time, however, that chef made a mistake on my friend’s order. So, change the name of the item so it does not confuse with a similarly named entree. Mgr Dennis was excellent, comped my friend’s meal.

    The service and the meal were superb. Attentive service without hovering; flavor and combination of spices on the all appetizers and entrees was excellent. My only minor (and short-lived) complaint is how noisy it was. It was nice to see the restaurant packed and bustling upon arrival at 7:00PM, but conversation was initially difficult in the main dining room. Surprisingly, the restaurant cleared out rather quickly, and by the time we left at 9:15PM, it was nearly empty. We will definitely be back as the sound level did not detract from the overall experience. We may time our dinner differently (or not at all.)

    I used to love this place, especially for the madras curried chicken dish, which I ordered last night. The curry sauce was gritty and didn’t taste as good as in the past. Also the host tried to seat me in the back room that used to be used for private events even though the main dining room was largely empty. My reservation was for 6:15 and I was early. I stopped the host when it was clear he was trying to lead me to the back room and said I wanted to be seated in the main dining room. He told me that he had to check because they had “many reservations.” I responded that there many empty tables AND I had a reservation. (I’m a person of color, so I wasn’t sure if this had any bearing on the seating issue). He then seated me along the rail which left me sitting very very close to a twosome on the opposite side of the rail. I could hear their entire conversation. I was going to ask for a banquette seat of which there were many, but didn’t feel like engaging in further trouble with the host. Next, our server ignored us for quite long periods of time throughout the evening. Even when we ordered additional wine, we had to remind him twice before he brought it. So the food was not as good, the host tried to put me in a back room and gave a ridiculous excuse for not wanting to seat me in the main dining room, and the server was inattentive. I don’t know if I will return.

    Chef Geoff's is my go-to restaurant in the area - they have a good "something for everyone" menu, it's usually not hard to get a reservation and the staff is great. I have two minor suggestions related to this last trip: 1> They were out of some of the wine that was included in the "restaurant week" menu. I think they should have allowed a substitution if they were out of the one that was included (white for white, red for red etc). 2> They had previously expanded the options for plant-based menu items but now there seem to be fewer again. I hope they will add more!
