2of us went to George's for a special lunch. Asked for a view table and after a drink at the bar were given a great view table. Food was different and delicious and everyone couldn't have been nicer.

Food was extremely creative, but not quite as tasty as it looked/sounded. Overall a very good, interesting meal. We ate downstairs, so no views. Expensive (restaurant week made it less so).

We had a great lunch overlooking ocean. Patio heaters made it very comfortable. Fish tacos and burger were very good , service excellent. Were seated right away without reservation at 11:45, but perhaps with reservation or earlier arrival would have been able to sit oceanfront which would have been nice!

We went to the Rooftop bar at George's. Maybe we had heard too much about this place but we were not overly impressed. Was there a greAt view, yes, but I think that's the draw here. The bartenders were very nice but It just wasn't as impressive as we thought it would be. All we had was chips and salsa... More

I made reservations for George's Modern which is a located on the 1st floor on the building...I was disappointed to find out where my reservation was since the views on... More

Fine dining and excellent quality food. Beautiful view if you're seated near the windows. Intimate atmosphere, great for special occasions. Excellent service, many healthy options as well as open to modifications. They have an elaborate winelist. The downside is that the wines are very expensive and in my opinion, over-priced. If you want to impress someone, this is one of... More

We dined in the lower lever over Christmas. The modern decor set the mood and the dim lighting was enjoyable. I would go back with just my wife to enjoy a romantic dinner. The food was unique and really made choosing a selection. Good thing we were with family and could try each others dishes. Smiles! The wine selection was... More

We had a great time eating on the terrace at George's at the Cove. We arrived there very hungry after an exhausting day of sight-seeing. Despite our rather bedraggled appearances, the hostess was welcoming, and the waiter was friendly and helpful. It was a cool evening and we weren't near the heaters so the waiter brought us blankets. Everything from... More
