This is where the beautiful people go for drinks and light food. Sit on the top patio for the best sunset view. After your drinks and appetizers, go to a real restaurant for dinner.

George’s sits right over La Jolla Cove, so it would be impossible to beat the lovely view here. We thought the lunch food was excellent and had amazing Ice tea! A bit pricy, but that is to be expected in lajolla.

We had a lovely, elegant dinner. Spot prawn appetizer was fabulous; spinach-artichoke lasagna really delicious. My husband enjoyed his yellowtail. We were indoors, downstairs. Excellent service; not cheap but worth it.

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.
