we had brunch and the avocado toast with the eggs were amazing, the eggs benedict with the crab cakes were also very good, but the clear superstar are the ricotta donuts, they are served hot and fresh and you could never tell they are made with ricotta, the raspberry dipping sauce was a perfect compliment

We will be back! My husband and I stumbled upon Chef Geoff’s while looking for a replacement location from an original reservation. We were pleasantly surprised that our initial miss was remedied by this gem. We drove from PA (2hours) for brunch somewhere else and we appreciate Chef Geoff came through. Food was fresh, hot, and delicious! I would recommend constant cold water refills for outdoor seating! We will return!! 🥂

We were able to make reservations for the night. It was right downstairs from our hotel, which was great. It was a birthday celebration, and everyone in the party had a bite of something they really craved. Definitely will be back.

JD, Christian, and JP, plus other staff members, provide a welcoming environment, always seating and serving me and my guests at my preferred window booth whenever possible. Also, the food is consistently outstanding and is served in a timely manner.

I am a vegan and gluten free and it is often difficult to order off most menus. Your restaurant was no exception. I ordered the sweet potato fries and was told that they were fried in the same oil as gluten food. I have not had a reaction before from other restaurants who prepare their fries the same way, but unfortunately did from yours.
Other than that I was pretty much stuck with a salad, no dressing, as most of your dressings with the salads are creamy and most likely a blend of vegetable oils which are rampant with GMO's. I bring my own.
Your black bean burger, which could have been my protein source for the meal, was not dairy free - if you simply made this change, it could be vegan. That with a gluten free bun and a small side salad would have been acceptable as a complete meal and an actual vegan meal with all the nutrients necessary for a meal.
I hope you will consider these changes so that when I return, I will have a complete meal option.
Thank you.

The restaurant appeared to be very understaffed. There was no one at the host stand, and it took about 5 minutes for someone to show up and seat us. Our drinks arrived about 5 minutes after our food, and the waitress rarely checked on us. The food was excellent, so the overall experience was good. The staff just needs to be a bit more attentive.

Ordered a mushroom pizza and the they bought out a margarita pizza. I sent it back and they put some mushrooms on it and called it a mushroom flatbread. Had to send that back to get my respect as a patron

I appreciate that I was offered the choice between a paper menu and a QR code.

The selection appeared inclusive although drinks that were listed on the menu were not available when ordered.

The crab cake appetizer was delicious, no complaints there!

Arugula salad with the chicken Milanese was fresh and lemony, grilled lemon ftw.

Chicken parm was 6.5/10. Seemed to be lacking freshness as it was listed as “fresh pasta”

Burger was a bit messy and ended up having to use a fork and knife to eat it.

Over all, the company shared was the most important part of my meal and the fact that we were able to connect and talk about life made the experience all the more enjoyable.

Delicious food and great service! Rigatoni was amazing! Noodles were homemade and sausage was the perfect amount of spice to add flavor. My husband loved his crab cake dinner and side salad. It’s nice to sit at a table inside with the open windows and people watch the crowd going by. We will definitely return!

The food was delicious. There were only a few downfalls were that even with a reservation for 2 they didn’t have a regular table ready for us, so they sat us at a round table that seats 5. This was a bit uncomfortable because we were on a date, but we made due. Our server was wonderful and friendly to start, but she disappeared on us. I am not sure if she got off because the restaurant was closing or fell ill, but she never returned. Another serve apparently took over her table, but this is a guess, because there was no introduction. We also did not get notified of last call for the bar. We wanted a second round of drinks. When I asked the second/only server I saw if the bar was closed he said yes. I guess the disappointed look on my face made him ask what we wanted and he decided to try to get our second round and was successful, which I appreciated. This however made me not even want to ask about getting dessert to go, which unfortunately was one of the reasons I chose the restaurant. I do wish that we had received better communication about the restaurant closing because we were enjoying the food and conversation instead of paying attention to the time. Overall enjoyed the restaurant.

We ate: 1. The mini crab cakes, 2. The calamari, 3. The truffle steak fries, 4. The shrimp & grits, 5. The NY Strip

We drank: The Passion fruit mule but they were out of passion fruit so we asked it to be substituted with pineapple juice and it was delicious!

This is my new favorite restaurant. Everything was excellent. Host, bar tender, and wait staff were very attentive. Food served hot and in a timely manner. We were seated in the private area because we needed a table for 7ppl. The only restaurant that I found that could accommodate us on Mother's Day for dinner. I highly recommend Chef Geoff's for your future dining needs.

Service was good. Food was mediocre. Crab cakes had shells and the coffee cake was dry. Other standard breakfast food like scrambled eggs and toast were good, but poached eggs were a bit underdone.
