We ate outside near a heater. Tables were well-spaced and heater kept us comfortable. Chef Geoff New Mexico Ave is a good option for outdoor dining as the weather gets colder.
Outside dining was safe and delicious. The staff is courteous, kind and safe. Would definitely recommend for the delicious food and social distance safe experience.
Decent neighborhood eatery. Service is a bit spotty, but the food is decent.
Excellent meal and service! My only regret is that I couldn’t eat my entire delicious shrimp and grits entree because I was too full from eating all the appetizers, the hummus and calamari.
Having such a terrific and consistent restaurant in one's neighborhood is a real treat. We don't go out for meals a lot, but when we do, Chef Geoff's is always near top of the list for consideration. Recent visit just confirmed that. Well prepare and very flavorful dinner accompanied by friendly and efficient service staff. Outdoor seating well spaced and they clearly "get" the requirements for safe dining in this year of challenges.
Again, we'll be back.
I have been going to Chef Geoff for decade. It is my favorite restaurant. I have written many reviews. Unfortunately I do not have time to write a specific review for our wonderful moonlight dinner on the patio. Please look at the photos I will attach.
Wonderful, as always!!! They are doing a great job with outside dining during Covid. This is the only place I will go right now!
Our favorite neighborhood spot!! Awesome customer service & delicious food!
Some hits, some major misses. Might have been an off night in the kitchen.
With Covid, I Had wanted a hamburger for a while so decided to go since warm out. Waitress was delightful. Split our big mugs in to two glasses. My wife and I each ordered the hamburger and couldn’t decide on sides and she suggested we could do half of fries and salad. Perfect. But the salad was just lettuce and dressing.
Hamburger and fries were great, salad was just boring but I was outside so all good. Someone served us who was delightful so all is well.
I went there recently for a lunch with my in-laws as they have a very extensive and well-spaced outdoor eating area. Everything from the salads to the pizza was great and service was excellent. Would happily recommend to anyone!
Food was really awful. Drinks good though. And patio was nice.
We are outside. Tables are well spaced. Food and service were both excellent. And they have lots of propane heaters when it get chilly.
Very accommodating, as we didn’t know of a person in our group was going to show up. Everyone enjoyed their food and service was perfectly fine. I will definitely be coming back
Excellent all around for the six of us
The fried calamari was much too salty and greasy. The fries served with our sandwich were cold but when we asked for hot fries instead they were happy to bring them. Service was attentive.
Chef Geoff's outdoor patio has always been a pleasant place to eat -- and an absolute balm during this time of coronavirus. The food remains as excellent as it ever was, the staff is taking all the necessary precautions, and the service is excellent. I hope they install outdoor heaters so that we can continue to enjoy this neighborhood gem as the weather turns cooler.
Great safe outdoor seating.
I requested a table in open table and just to make sure I called and I was told that table was reserved for us well was another story when I got there, I guess the manager decided to seat us wathever she wanted , is not right specially couple of hours before they confirm , also if you have ordered an appetizers should give you time in between for your next course
I love everything about this place. Wonderful service, lots of friendly smiles and delicious food!
Reserved a table outside. Well spaced and the staff and patrons were masked when interacting. Felt safe, good food, and lovely staff. I observed good spacing of seating inside as well.
Great and largest outdoor patio in DC. Umbrellas on tables are large enough to eat outside in a light rain.
Love them! Local owner.
Best patio in DC! The service was spot on, too. I particularly enjoyed the fresh pasta with heirloom tomatoes. My son had a phenomenal pizza with bacon on it. Staff is also very good about masks and general COVID safety.
The service was lovely, food delicious and well prepare, and the outdoor patio felt safe and spacious. A wonderful celebratory experience.
Lovely outdoor seating area
Everything was great but the fries were only ok
I had the crabcake which was excellent; real lump and little filler. My guest had the salmon which he reported was also excellent. Outdoor patio seating is spaced generously and is attractive. I highly recommend.
Outside dining at Chef Geoff’s is a joy and delight! Lovely atmosphere, well away from street traffic. And consistently great food.
Spicy Caesar salad didn’t not taste good! Some sort of pickle sprinkled all over. Salmon on top had very fishy smell.
Table given to my friend and I too small for comfortable (safe) conversation while eating. I asked for the slightly larger tables, was told no, that they were for three or four person parties. Then two people were led to one of those tables right by us.
My dish was not cooked to my order, it had to be recooked.
My husband ordered a filet which did not turn out to be a filet-- it was tough, cooked too much.
The humus and pita bread are delicious, as was the guac and chips--
The crab cakes are fabulous.
All in all, we liked our meal there, but would not buy the filet again. Service was excellent.
We had a lovely meal at Chef Geoff’s. We wanted to taken advantage of the lovely weather to enjoy outdoor dining. The patio at the restaurant is spacious and the tables were appropriately spaced to accord with social distancing guidelines. The service was friendly, and we were not rushed. We liked the menu and enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. It was only the 2nd time since the beginning of the pandemic that we have eaten out, and we were very happy with the experience.
Our waiter was excellent
Top-notch service and great food on the patio on a beautiful day.
enjoyed my Russian mule! and my crab cake but had hoped for your delicious mahi mahi and guess the fish just weren't available.
Great service, food, and super-doggie friendly! Even put out a bowl of water. Thx!
Crab cakes cold and not up to usual standards
