Simply, the best view of any restaurant in La Jolla. However, given this view the food is very pricey for the quality and in my is opinion decent but not great. In the end you are paying for the view. You I can easily spend...More

Great view from the patio. Get there early and get a table overlooking the cove. Seals on the little rock out cropping, and good food made for a great lunch.

In San Diego for a convention. Decided to get away from downtown and head to La Jolla. Great restaurant with a reasonably priced tasting menu and wine pairings. Not michellin star but a great quality meal. Service was impeccable!

We had to park on a side-street just down the road. It wasn't far and there was no charge.

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.
