We were pretty much the only patrons for the evening. Given rising covid cases, you think the restaurant would be accommodating to outdoor seating. They have patio tables and plenty of propane gas lamps... yet, we were told to sit indoors or be cold outside because they are not turning the heat lamps on! We stayed and ate in the cold since we want to support a neighborhood restaurant but my money will be going elsewhere now. Food was nothing special and the waitress was nice.

The food was amazing and the service was so friendly and attentive! The only thing I would say is that we were able to make a reservation for 9:00 p.m. but when we got there we found out the kitchen closed at 9:00 so we felt rushed. The staff didn't rush us at all but we felt bad for making people stay late. Other than that, it was wonderful and we'll be back.

We ordered pecan salmon with a ham and veggie hash. Fantastic and so different! Our server was efficient and had the best personality ever encountered! We sat on the terrace with a glowing heat lamp. It was so cozy and made us feel normal in 2020!

The only trouble I have with Chef Geoff's is choosing what to order — I want everything! Trust me, I can be very picky but every offering on the menu is truly delicious: classic with a twist of originality. Also important, the staff is top-notch: highly professional and well-trained yet warm and personable. This may sound weird, but they are all — from bartenders to busboys —intelligent and highly intuitive. They always sense when you want privacy and when you want to socialize and share a laugh. But what I deeply admire about Chef Geoff's is the restaurant's highly developed sense of community. The owner, Geoff Tracey, had the compassion and intelligence at the onset of the pandemic to turn his restaurant into a community pantry, selling meals and drinks to go but also items that weren't always available at grocery stores: disposable gloves, sanitizing wipes, bleach, etc. This not only helped the community but kept his staff employed during the shutdown. Bravo, Geoff! You're not just a great chef, you're a class act and a great neighbor. No wonder Dr. Fauci loves this place.

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.

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.

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.

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
Thanks
