Enjoyed an evening with friends overlooking the sunset. Food was delicious, not an overly complicated menu.

We went in November 2017. The view alone is worth coming to see. The food was delicious and imaginative. All three of us were happy with the food

This is a very popular place, with very good food. Slow service. Very pricey. But then the crowd did not seem to care. Must be the IN place.

Beautiful views here from the deck. Food was good with some vegetarian options. Service average. They add a 3% surcharge after tax and add a tip after that.

We had lunch outside above La Jolla Cove. The food is always good but the main reason we keep coming back is the beautiful view.

The best thing about George's is the view. So for lunch,it's great to sit on the roof and eat. However, the menu is just average. Nothing to write home about, although the food is good-tasting. No seafood at this ocean restaurant. Weird. The menu is...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.

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.
