I have read/heard mixed things about the new Geoffrey's in Roslindale, but the old Geoffrey's has special meaning to us so we're going to check it out. Any recs for what to try -- and not to try?

  1. The chicken with fettucine, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes is terrific there, as is the couscous with veggies. Definitely leave room for dessert, too, as the chocolate chip bread pudding is really, really good (and really filling!).

    1. I was a huge devotee of the old Geoffrey's. I have been to the new one 3 or 4 times and have had really good meals. I loved the outdoor patio in the summer. The only complaint I have is that it was incredibly noisy the night I sat indoors. It was hard to even have a conversation (I was seated at a table in the bar area). Don't know if things have improved on that count. But I thought the food was really nice.

        We went to Geoffrey's about two weeks ago and we were not bothered by any noise. Food was pretty solid: SO and I had pasta dishes, dd had tomato soup which was quite thick, thicker than I like but the flavor was good. My pasta dish included some good sausage from the Italian grocery next door. I'd like to go back and check out that place sometime. For dessert they shared a piece of carrot cake that was bigger than my head. I'm not a fan of cc, but they loved it. Service was friendly, overall a good experience.

          The Italian grocer next door has excellent fresh sausages.

      2. A couple comments about the new Geoffrey's: The place is a total scene, which for me is fun. Foodwise, the steak tips (and steak tip salad) are great.

        Move to Roslindale and eat.
