Lovely ambiance. The cucumber martini was not tasty. The lobster quiche and crab cakes were quite good. Will definitely return.

Ambiance is great. Our waiter was inattentive, mischarged us and got our valet tickets messed up. We got the wrong car!! Salmon and sides were flavorless.

The vibe was relaxed and soothing. Beautiful ocean views. It started to rain shortly after we were seated at one of the patio tables. The staff were amazing. So accommodating and moved us right away to a table under the roof line. Food was delicious. We had scallops and sea bass - so good! Our food server Marvin was tremendous. We will ask for him on our next visit!

The ambiance is wonderful and the view is worth everything. The steak was not a good cut, but they took it off the bill, but that's not really what we want.

Honestly, the food at Geoffrey’s is amazing but the ambiance is my favorite part. Truly feels like you’re having dinner at a restaurant inside a beautiful resort. A date night must.

The ambience is hard to beat, yet the food was extremely overpriced, and of poor quality. I suggest going for a drink to experience the view, yet don't waste your time or money on dining~

Beautiful setting, fantastic ambiance, great service (Kenny was server). The reason I gave it an overall three stars was because the food wasn't the same quality that it has been in the past. Scallops were charred on the outside, but not fully cooked on the inside and the NY steak was quite tough. I am sure the drop in food quality has everything to do with the pandemic and the difficulty in getting food and other supplies - this seems to be the case with a lot of restaurants and undestandably so. I will definitely go back at some point, but was dissapointed in the overall food quality. If you are reading this review, I sill recommend this restaurant, but food quality is not what it was a couple of years ago. Order the appetizers and enjoy some drinks in a beautiful setting for the best experience.

100% worth the money. The restaurant was quiet and clean. The staff was super friendly. Not not once did we have to flag someone down and ask for anything. our waiter, Manny was on point.

Keeva was our standing as we’re other staff. Friendly, funny, always around, flexible. Lots of heaters to stay warm. Tables are set so only 1/2 the party has a view but not much can be done about that. Drinks are pricey but tasty. Food is also a bit pricey for for a special, well worth it. My filet mignon was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Like butta. Side dishes were paired perfectly also. I tried the scallops and they were yummy. Ribeye as above average but I’d recommend the other dishes. All in all for a 60th birthday, I was extremely pleased.

I have always been a great fan of this restaurant. It is iconic and if you want the full Malibu experience with the killer view, this is the place. Wait staff are amazing, the food is great, and the ambiance is top notch. Worth spending the dough to have a Geoffrey's experience. You get what you pay for!

We were looking forward to our anniversary dinner at Geoffrey's with an awesome view of the ocean. However, a thick fog enveloped the area and you couldn't see ocean or sky. Then it broke a little bit, and our oceanside table had the most atmospheric romantic view, of a half fog laden sky, a new moon, stars and the sound of crashing waves. We sat in the patio because dogs were allowed. Our dog got a lot of attention and laid next to our table contentedly. Food and service were good.
The landscaping at the restaurant is beautiful, the overall ambience romantic and relaxing.

We have been going to Geoffrey's for YEARS. We stopped for awhile because the menu seemed stagnant. We returned for our annual New Years Sunday lunch. The menu changed, the food was exceptional and the portions were quite generous.

Our dishes were outstanding. They do a great job with fish. Nice wine list and very attentive waiters even though it was starting out as a busy evening. The people there were very friendly and made you feel extremely welcome. My daughter and I had a lovely evening. Of course, it's ambience is lovely and the restaurant has a view that has no equal in Malibu, in my opinion.

To sum everything up in one word, I would say… phenomenal. From start to finish everything exceeded my expectations. We had a wonderful table, with amazing views. It was dark but the ambiance itself was incredibly romantic. I went to celebrate my anniversary and my server, Angel was absolutely amazing. She took care of us and made amazing recommendations as it was our first time. Definitely coming back, thank you for having us

I loved the food and the lovely service from my waiter but the lighting was awful! I mean I could not even see my
Meal! I asked for multiple candles and got them, but still could not for the life of me see what I was eating which is just basics when you go out to eat. There is something to be said about eating by candle light but neither is this the place to do that nor is it their intention as it’s not formal enough. Also their bathrooms are tiny and filthy. So the food the service were all great but the infrastructure needs some serious looking into.

We were stuck in the corner by a wall, at the last table - in front of a mirror of the view, instead of the sea. We specifically made a 4:30 sunset rez and brought my Husband's large format camera for the occasion.

When people started leaving and all of the front row tables began opening up, I asked if we could move up and see the view for our last 1/2 hr. A snarky waiter barked at us that all of the tables were reserved. Yeah, that's what we thought too when we made our rez for sunset, but we were the only party on the whole patio with no view of the skyline or the sea. Instead, we had a prominent view of the neighboring house construction being covered in an enormous dingy blue tarp, and the view of everyone else's heads enjoying the sunset.
Extremely disappointing...

How else does one ensure a reservation for a sunset sea view here?
We didn't get a chance to take a single picture, but everyone else did.
