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.

They have a cocktail menu at the bar for George's Level 2 with incredible concoctions named after San Diego neighborhoods. The waiter/bartender was patient and helpful in explaining the options. He asked us what type of cocktails we like, so he could recommend a few. I like G&T, margaritas, Aperol Spritz, so he keyed in on the bitter taste and recommended "Little Italy". Spot on - it was amazing, with this topping that wasn't sweet but had the consistency of a toasted marshmallow. I've been thinking about that drink ever since. My husband enjoyed his "Jungle Bird", as he is fond of Mai Tais and margaritas. I would love to try more, but don't know that I could pass up the Little Italy. Well done!

Based on a recommendation from a coworker I went to Georges. Arriving at 4 PM there was 2 business travelers and we requested a table with the ocean view. The host asked if we planned to have dinner and we said no. She very rudely told us that all tables we're reserved for customers wanting to have dinner not for anyone just wanting appetizers and drinks

We went to the bar and had a couple of drinks. When we left at 5:30 nobody had been seated at the tables

Overall the staff was not friendly

George's at the Cove is not to be missed in La Jolla with the best ocean views in town from their terrace. You can even hear the sea lions from there! And they do your birthday up real special with a birthday treat and every entré I've had there as been scrumptious!

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
