We had three couples at a great table on the rooftop on the water for dinner. The menu selections were limited and the food was okay. There are better places to eat in La Jolla.

Found the Ocean Terrace to be TOP NOTCH. Incredible food, great service and perfect ambiance. Thrilled that I took the recommendation from a local to go here. The best meal I've ever had in San Diego. Try the fish tacos and the warm chocolate cake....More

We hadn't been to Georges for many years, and wondered if it would still be as good as we remembered. The answer is yes! We almost didn't go, due to the construction. But we walked up just to check it out, and the noise wasn't...More

You will see a little of everything. It is California! I would highly recommend the rooftop dining. The view is amazing. There is a breeze, but they also have heaters they can put by your table.

George's at the Cove is a renowned three-level dining destination located in the heart of La Jolla overlooking the Pacific Ocean and northern coastline. We offer three distinct restaurant and bar concepts – one fine dining and two casual – with stunning ocean views and award-winning cuisine. Known for its splendid rooftop setting, the popular George’s Ocean Terrace – complete with a newly expanded and elevated bar – offers casual al fresco fare for lunch and dinner that is perfectly complemented by sweeping ocean views. Recently reinvented from floor to ceiling, the all-new George’s Level2 – located on the second level – is elevating the craft of cocktails with housemade ingredients and handcut ice. Featuring all the classics and innovative modern creations, like the signature Sea3, Level2 offers a variety of cocktails well-suited to any taste. On the lower level, George's California Modern is a contemporary fine dining restaurant and bar featuring seasonally-driven California cuisine. Guests are invited to explore “San Diego on a plate” through a la carte or tasting menus inspired by the lifestyle, ingredients and sense of place that is San Diego. Whether celebrating a special occasion or simply looking to enjoy the San Diego lifestyle to its fullest, George’s at the Cove is an essential part of any visit to the region.
