My boyfriend and I recently celebrated our anniversary, and wanted to share our special moment at a romantic dinner with an ocean view. Unfortunately, Geoffreys was a disappointment.
Let's start with the positives. There's no doubt Geoffreys is set at a breathtaking location in a beautiful enchanting outdoor venue. Service is also phenomenal. Food was good, very nice presentation. We had a waiter who constantly checked on us and had a fantastic personality.
Now for the negatives. I made our reservation online far in advance and put in a special request to be seated "next to the railing on the patio with a good ocean view". After making the online booking, I even called the restaurant to put in the railing/ocean view request and told them we're celebrating an anniversary. The lady on the phone was nice and said it wouldn't be a problem. Fast forward to our anniversary dinner, we were seated at an inside table far back making it very hard to see the water. When I asked the hostess if we could switch tables (there happened to be two perfect ones available), she responded, "I'll have to check because we might be saving it for another reservation". This response made us very upset, because why should one reservation get priority over another that arrived first? After waiting 10 minutes, she moved us to a different table, again - with another very bad view. I understand that not everyone can be accommodated, but considering they told us it wouldn't be a problem on the phone AND the nicer table for two was available, it was a frustrating way to start our anniversary celebration.
