Nice to have the indoors to ourselves since it seems most folks like the outdoors. Like the willingness to adjust the menu item as presented to make sure it's what the customer wants. And why not as long as it is not too disruptive to the chef. Staff always attentive.

The large patio allows plenty of space for social distancing, and the leafy shade made it pleasant even on a hot day.

The food was excellent except one pasta and shrimp that was too hot and too salty. Everything else was very satisfactory.

Could not have been a tastier, more attractively presented meal with attentive service in a nice setting -- where you can easily hear your dining companions (rare at many restaurants).

We ate outside at Cheff Geoff's in the evening. It was a delightful experience with appropriate social distancing. All of the servers and other staff wore masks and gloves. The tables were at least six feet apart. The food was perfect as usual, as was the service. The ambiance was fine as well, sitting under the trees, and the noise level was perfect.

Since the start of the pandemic and the need to create physical distancing, I have been impressed with Chef Geoff's ability to adapt. We enjoyed our dinner on the terrace--the quality of the service and food was excellent. Thank you so much for giving us a special feeling of "normal".

Lovely evening out on the patio. Tables were reassuringly spaced, despite the heat the temps were pleasant because of the trees. My crab cake was a bit on the small side and the potato portion large but everything was tasty.

truthfully food was not that good at all. We have eaten there many times and it was not up to par. won't be back for awhile
Also our outdoor table was in the walk area for everyone coming to eat and those picking up food and table should be eliminated

During the past few months I have greatly admired the way Chef Geoff has done so much to keep his staff employed -- in stark contrast to other restaurant owners. When you announced that the terrace was available at lunch time, I invited a friend and made a reservation. In addition to always having a very tasty meal, in a welcoming environment, I like to patronize businesses that share my values.

Chef Geoff is my favorite restaurant. The staff are so welcoming and gracious. The food covers a range of different items of all types. It is all delicious and quite healthy. It is so lovely and peaceful out on the patio on a summer evening. A wonderful place to go.
I congratulate Chef Geoff Tracy and his colleagues for creating a special environment for us all.

This was our first dining out experience since the shut down and I was felt totally safe. They did everything that their email said...even throwing away your menu after you used it. Food was excellent!

We have celebrated Father's Day at Chef Geoff's 5 years in a row and we love it!! The patio is a perfect setting and this year the tables are well spread out to keep social distancing. Fabulous food and great service!

The watermelon salad is a wonderful summertime menu item. However, I've ordered it twice now and it always seems to be overdressed.
