The great thing about Chef Geoff''s on New Mexico Avenue is that it never disappoints. I've been here with my mother for lunch, with friends for dinner, a beer and burger at the bar solo, with pre-teens in tow, a post-funeral reception in the back room. I've been here several dozen times and it's a comfortable and solid neighborhood restaurant... More

Whenever I come to visit family in DC, I make sure I walk down to Chef Geoff's. I sit outside when weather permits and sample their wonderful lineup of tap beers and order the amazing parmesan popcorn and fried Brussels sprouts. They are NOT to be missed. Their Sunday brunches are EPIC! Very relaxed atmosphere, not fussy at all. Great... More

Very good chicken milanese and burger. We chose a table outside, and the evening was wonderful, so we really enjoy the night! Waiter and service very good. Affordable

Great atmosphere and great food. We had the curried chicken and beef bourgenese (stewed beef with sweet potatoes). Both dishes were delicious. Their Rocky Road sundae was big enough for 2-3 people! The service was great too. I will go back next time I am town.

We had an excellent meal after a long day of seeing cherry blossoms. We both ordered the sunset special which started with a basket of bread with butter that tasted super sweet. My wife got the kale salad and I the spinach salad. I didn't get a chance to try the kale salad, but I thought the spinach salad was... More

What a great find! We enjoyed the outdoor seating and that we could bring our dog. The staff was super friendly and the food was great. We got the sunset special which was a great value since we could get three courses for $25. I recommend the wild mushroom ravioli. Definitely plan on returning here.

After a very long meeting, we had a late lunch at Chef Geoff's. the service was good but slow. The restaurant was not busy since it was 3:00pm. The menu offers the diner a variety of unique choices. I had the shrimp burrito with was more rice, beans and lettuce and only 6 shrimp. My business associates had speciality salads... More

We had a wonderful dinner for two at Chef Geoff's, near American University, found on TripAdvisor, thank you! We decided what we wanted to have, and then realized that it all fit perfectly into the Sunset Special (4:00 to 6:30 pm), three cources for $25 (any soup or salad, plus one of several entrees, any burger or pizza, plus any...
