Lunch on the rooftop was great! The wait staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending dishes. We had the ceviche appetizer, Tuna sandwich, and fish tacos. Everything was wonderful, but for us the ceviche was the best! Highly recommended if just for the views.

A great place to go for a view of the Cove. The only draw back is that every other tourist thinks the same way so it gets crowded. Nonetheless it is a fun place and the crowd does add some energy. The food was a...More

I go to George's every time I am in the area. We got reservations on the Ocean Terrace. Food, service and ambience were perfect. I always forget it is reasonable too, for such a fine restaurant. I hope this is not our last visit. Kudos!

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.
