Beautiful spot overlooking the ocean. Service was ok although the servers showed the wear of being super busy. Food was tasty although not the best I've had and the prices were what you would expect from a touristy place.

This spot is awesome!! They have a really fun cocktail list and great tap selection. Plus they have a top story that overlooks the cove. It's beautiful and the food is delicious!

Beautiful view. Had lunch with friends and really enjoyed the food. The staff was professional although the waitress seemed a little distracted.

One of the best, if not THE best, views in La Jolla! This was our third visit to La Jolla and we never miss going to George's for drinks or lunch. Amazing burgers.

Brunch or lunch at this LaJolla restaurant roof top is something you must experience. Incredible ocean view and fun ambiance. Everything from appetizers, salads, sandwiches and, of course, mixed drinks is available. Don't hesitate to try a new food item...everything on the menu is excellent.

No, not on the main menu. However, they run specials from time to time. However a local restaurant called "the Spot" usually runs daily lobster specials.

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.
