Geoffrey's in Malibu (long)

Zoe | Jul 22, 200202:38 PM

Some friends took us for a pre birthday celebration dinner here on Saturday. Arrived just after six (so we could see the sunset over the water) - a few grunts from the other invitees about eating so early - the parking lot was already packed. From start to finish we had nothing but a good experience - desk persons very affable even although we were a little late (we did call from the road). Had a really good table at the edge so we had a splendid view (restaurant was quite full at this point). Our waiter was efficient, pleasant, humorous and very helpful on assorted drinks and a ton of questions on the menu including answering the 'what's that at the next table'. Had assorted appetizers, I had the scallops with caviar in a cream sauce - well seasoned and not rubbery. Others had the large shrimp, very seasoned and soup (I follow the Duchess of Windsor's philosophy not to eat soup with dinner, so I skipped). Others (we were seven) had caesar salad pronouned good and SO had the mixed greens which she sent back because it was drowned in dressing (SO didn't like the rosemary rolls either). Now to the Mains: I had muscovy duck breast noisettes rolled in foie gras with a cabanet reduction served on quinoa - just very good eats. Several had the filet steak and SO and others had the striped sea bass with asparagus on a bed of mashed potatoes. Can't remember the wines because I was in a haze from drinking a large Cosmopolitan. Skip the desserts. Cost about $150 couple plus. Best part was that in spite of a really full house, the service was pleasant, easy and personal including the manager moving our table around to accommodate the an additional guest. Great food, atmosphere, service - good to see SO many tourists.
