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.

Amazing view!! Wish the food was better. Loved my cocktail. But this place is worth a stop by to sit and watch the ocean view

Love to hang out at this restaurant just to enjoy the view. The restaurant has 3 level. I love to seat on the top open floor. The food was good and the service was okay. Only we charged 3 % for extra charge plus service charge min 20%

Been here twice now. Simply amazing food and view. The food tastes so fresh and you can really feel the craft behind it. Pricing is fair compared to what you get with a visit here.

We dined at the Top level of George's at the Cove and found the atmosphere to be relaxed, but vibrant at the same time. The waitstaff were super friendly, and we were lucky to get a table close to the glass with a very spectacular view of sunset.

We started with chips and salsa, which I would pass on going back. My entree was lovely, (Potato Gnocchi, Bay‎ scallops, roasted fennel, spinach, mushrooms, sage) and upon cleaning my plate, was content and full! But, I didn't stop there and got the chocolate cake for dessert and that second glass of wine.

For the money, the food was good, the service was friendly, and the view was second to none. Would definitely go back for another meal at George's next time I am in the La Jolla area!

If you’re into beautiful views of the ocean and creatively presented and delicious small plates, you must try this restaurant while in La Jolla. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here and the service, food and ambience were all wonderful! Highly recommend for foodies!
