The most beautiful view from a restaurant table in Southern California. The food is terrific. The service is very good and the staff is friendly. I have been coming here for over 20 years and never been disappointed.

Geoffrey's just gets better except for the Pacific Coast Highway traffic on a warm Saturday at lunchtime. The Salade Nicoise was perfect.

The setting is fantastic on the water. My Kale salad was very tasty but the Chilean Sea Bass on mashed potatoes was completely flavorless - as bland as cardboard. We reported it to the server and they offered us complementary desserts, which was thoughtful, and they were very good. But we paid a great deal of money for very sub-par entrees. We won't be rushing back.

Tolles Ambiente am PCH mit Blick auf den Sonnenuntergang über dem Meer. Der Service war freundlich aber sehr langsam.
Ich hatte die Scallops, die wirklich hervorragend lecker waren.

Fantastic view, attentive staff, decent food. The sea bass was excellent but the wagyu beef was tough, not sure it was really wagyu and for close to $100, it was disappointing. So go for the view and atmosphere but order carefully to fully enjoy the experience.

Went for the first time for my birthday. Most people there were celebrating something. I like that it is on the quiet end of Malibu, BUT they were very busy. Lovely atmosphere. Food really needs updating. I would pay higher prices if they upped their food game. Make the menu more interesting. Potatoes served with brunch were like diner food; not worth eating. The seafood is decent, but nothing to write home about. I AM glad it is an institution, and is still around. Service was very attentive and great. Not sure I would schlep out there again anytime soon unless they updated the menu.

We had family visiting from Germany so we chose to celebrate at Geoffrey’s. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived through the valet. The valet were so patient and accommodating with my elderly mother. The hosts were friendly welcoming. Our server Chris and his assistant were on point. They had a cheerful and wonderful demeanor about them. The service was amazing not to mention the delicious meals we had. The presentation of each dish was beautiful! Did I mention the food???? It was outstanding! We cleared our plates. The seared ahi, the salmon, the paella, the scallops, and the endless appetizers were sooo delicious!! I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant in the heart of Malibu. The view was amazing from every angle. My relatives want to make this their new tradition whenever they are in America!

The food and ambiance were very good. I don’t know what happened, but it took the server 15 minutes to acknowledge us, then we got switched to another server who came by after 10 additional minutes. And when the bill came, the server stand by our table to check if I was leaving the tip( since it was a 300+ tab)

Service was lackluster. Ahi Tuna was dry with one 1/4 cube of avocado. Coconut shrimp was bland. No coconut flavor. Corn chowder was fantastic as was wedge salad. Crab cakes were mushy. Won’t be back. Sad.

This place, located in the coastal hills just above the Malibu beach, is a wonderful gem. For special occasions, or just because you want to relax with a loved one, it's a great place to go.

We were seated at a table with a wrinkled cloth, no set ups and after 8 or so minutes had to get up to find a waiter. When we finally did, Chris was outstanding. But we shouldn’t have had to go find a waiter.

Absolutely the worst service ever!
It is like the all the items on the menu are absolutely impossible to change - you cannot even ask the side dish to be changed!
Check the menu before you go!

My husband and I had an excellent luncheon experience at Geoffrey's. We were seated at a table overlooking the ocean and the view was spectacular. It was a warm day but the sea breeze kept us comfortable. We each started with a Bloody Mary, which they mix with Absolut Peppar (my personal favorite.) The seating is roomy, which keeps the noice level fairly quiet. We both had the lobster cobb salad which is served with a whole lobster tail and claws. I should have taken a picture because it was so beautifully plated. I would strongly suggest this entree salad, as it was a satisfying meal and everything was very fresh. We were returning to LA from Santa Barbara after a short trip to the Central Coast and the whole experience really did extend our feeling of being on vacation. We definitely recommend Geoffrey's and plan to return very soon.

Perfect special-occasion place. I loved my duck; my husband was less thrilled with his paella, though it seemed tasty to me. The crieme brûlée could’ve had a crispier crust but it was yummy nonetheless. Excellent service and the most beautiful, quiet, elegant setting.❤️

Live in Malibu and don’t visit often, what a great experience! Food was amazing, great birthday celebration. My only complaint was that we ordered a bottle of champagne for 3 of us, then a glass for $19.00, the poor was really weak felt a bit alighted. Besides that A+. I just might be back soon 🥂
