Description: 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.

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.

We went to the Ocean Terrace for the first time during a recent trip to La Jolla and had a wonderful light dinner of mussels and George's Famous Soup, both of which were delicious. Add the great ocean view and it was a very enjoyable time. We'll be back.

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.

Had to wait to get a table with a view so we sat at upstairs bar and had two fantastic cocktails. Friendly bar staff.
For dinner two of us had turkey and one the beef cheeks. All were fantastic. Desert was outstanding and so was our server.
The wine list was good. But this place is also a byob with a $20 corkage fee.
