Put in our name for a 45 minute wait. We were seated over an hour later. By the time we got our food it was 2 hours. Fish was over cooked. If they had offered to comp us for hot tea that would have made it seem like they cared. The view is beautiful, but it can be chilly. They... More

We wanted to love this place because 2 separate friends/family had visited it. The positives: the view. The negatives: Hostess was well intended and polite but new and a little clueless. I got my glass of water and it had a lipstick stain on it. Umm...it was not my lipstick. Gross. They don't have high chairs for toddlers - just... More

The food and service are fantastic at George's. The view of the cove is spectacular. Dine at the top of the restaurant for the best view. Go!

If you are ever in the San Diego area, La Jolla is a town not to be missed. In the center of this quaint, idyllic beach coast California town is a jewel in the crown. Georges on the Cove is a place like no other. Make sure you call ahead and get an outside balcony view table. You will be... More

We were recommended to George's by a local and what a delicious meal. We were going to wait for a table on the top level but after a visit to the restrooms found the middle floor available and with sea views, so sat their. Our orders were swiftly taken and Monday Mules enjoyed. We shared the Marinated Fish Tacos for... More

Friday night dinner in La Jolla could have been an over Blown event with a rush in and out. However Georges was so the opposite. It felt that the restaurant was all ours. We were treated a kings and queens. The bartenders were so attentive and asked how our drinks were. Be fore our drinks were even mixed they asked... More

Get there early (4:30), for the start of the dinner seating and ask for a table along the outside edge on the top floor. The view is amazing and if there is a chill in the air you can ask the hostess for a blankie!!!!!

We went for Lunch here on a Sunday in December as a couple. The servers were very attentive, they asked if we wanted to be near the "view" or willing to sit a little further in ( as these tables were free), which I thought was nice...so we didn't feel rushed to the first available table. We waited for the... More
