    The meal was delicious, shrimp & grits and the bean burger.And I loved the pumpkin daiquiri, a Mocktail. A change up from two days of turkey and side dishes. Server Megan is always excellent and personable.

    We were quite disappointed with out meal. The turkey was dry. The stuffing was tasteless or worse. My scallops were great but the vegetables were simply coated in butter. So I ate the scallops and more or less skipped the veggies. My son-in-law found a chicken bone in his soup! We related out concerns to the manager. She gave us a discount for our meal and gave us a loaf of their special bread to help compensate for the bone in the soup. We have come to this restaurant for many years and have never had a meal quite like this one was....It is painful to write this review. We will probably return but not for this holiday. I would recommend this restaurant on the whole but not for a busy time/holiday like Thanksgiving.

    We were extremely pleased with dinner...our waitress was excellent. A very minor question we norm ally have dinner and get our parking ticket validated and park for free. Yesterday thanksgiving we sat for dinner about 3:30 and probably finished around 4:30. We got our parking ticket validated but both my wife and I had to pay $4.....not a bid deal just curious why?

    The menu is excellent and consistently good. The Chicken Curry is a staple and a great Winter dish. My fave is the Mushroom ravioli! Never had a bad meal. And they make the best Cosmopolitan in town!

    We absolutely love Chef Geoff's and this location! They are super accommodating to food preferences and never make us feel bad for, say, hating cilantro. The brunch menu is great and I love that everything skews Italian or southwestern. Solid good food every single time, never incorrect. Very fair prices for the area and portions. The apple bread they have right now is amazing! They also validate parking, which is important because we drive in from Fairfax County.

    Noise level is very high, at least at dinner. Difficult to have a private conversation or even talk to server. We've eaten their at lunch several times and found it much quieter.

    Service and food are always excellent. However, I ordered the turkey burger for the first time and the plate was 3/4 fries. I love fries, but not when they are spilling onto the table. My companion ordered the salmon burger, and her plate was also 3/4 fries. She wanted to cut up her burger, but there was absolutely no room on the plate for the pieces. Just not an attractive presentation.

    Kudos to the team at Chef Geoff's on Sunday the 13th. We had a mini baby-shower brunch, and one of our party was using a walker and the staff kindly helped us store and bring out all the large gifts, walker, etc. and the food and drinks were delicious!

    The service was slow. The food was mediocre. The music from the bar carried over into the dining room so it was very loud but it made me wonder whether it’s a bar or a restaurant. I never write negative reviews but we have gone to Chef Geoff’s for 20 years and my wife and I believe it has slipped significantly.

    The Chef Geoff in Virginia was one of my all-time favorites. The one on Nebraska Ave. was a real disappointment. The ambience on the terrace was lovely, but the food was not at all distinguished, the service unbelievably slow, and I got stomach sickness after coming home--I do not know if that was related. The service issues may have caused by staff shortages during the pandemic, but there was no reasonable excuse that the food was not more distinguished. I guess I'm trying to make excuses for a really disappointing meal, but at those elevated prices, we should have had really good food.

    Chef Geoff's is our favorite "go to" neighborhood café. We can count on being surrounded by happy diners -- neighbors, AU visitors, business people, families, small groups and even occasional solo diners. The waiters remember repeat diners and are super attentive. The food is reliably delicious and delivered timely from the kitchen. The wine list satisfies as do bar drinks. As for ambiance -- whether indoors or outside under cheerful patio lights -- Chef Geoff's invites diners to enjoy themselves for a relaxing daytime or evening visit.

    I've eaten at that local multiple times and the food tasted very good. This time my mushroom Frittata hardly had any mushrooms and no flavor. My side of bacon was so overcooked that it was dry.

    Thank goodness Chef Geoff retained and beautified the patio for the cool weather. It's definitely a festive atmosphere with all the lights and the warmth of many propane heaters. We will definitely make this a regular spot in the fall & winter, especially since they take reservations for the outdoor seating. Service was friendly and prompt, although as it got busier, not as efficient. The bar offered a variety of fall themed drinks and those we had were delicious.

    Really bad food. The steak and cheese quesadilla should be called Mushroom and cheese...hardly any steak at all. The server did comp the dish which was nice. The speed of our food delivery was too fast. We were served our salads before our drinks arrived. We were served our entrees before we were finished our salads. Lastly, the glaring institutional white lighting is bad. Chef Tunks needs to pay a visit and get this place back in shape.
