Great food and nice view!

The food was awesome and reasonable for that beautiful ocean view. The fish tacos were delicious! We also had some nice Moscow mules that were made perfect.

The staff here went beyond my expectations. It was the week of my 50th birthday and instead of another fattening dessert I was given a bottle of EVOO!! How sweet! The view here is spectacular and the food was very good.

We arrived in La Jolla early in the afternoon and our hotel room was not ready, so we wandered around the town. The hotel had told us of a couple of places where you can have a drink and look out at the ocean. The first one was a cheese and wine bar (Olive) which looked nice but you had... More

We went to George's for dinner. We were able to get in right away with no reservation, which is unusual. The service and food were both outstanding.

With some restaurants, the view is way better than the food. George's has a great view of La Jolla Beach, with glass panels circling the outside dining area (go up stairs when you are standing on Prospect Street. Food prices are slightly higher than a non-view restaurant. But the portions are a good size. I had a appetizer portion of... More

My go-to place for visitors to San Diego! A priceless view of La Jolla Cove. The food is modern cuisine, very mildly overpriced, but the view is totally worth it!

We chose this place due to the presence of a kids' menu when looking for somewhere special to eat with our 2 year-old on the last night of our trip to La Jolla. I couldn't fault the restaurant in any way for couples or adults. They sat us at an amazing table overlooking the ocean and we could see seals... More

My husband and I had lunch here during our trip to San Diego based on a friend's recommendation, and I'm glad we did. Had a great view of the ocean, and great food, as well. I had the fish sandwich while my husband had the short rib panini. Both were excellent and came with a delicious fresh salad. I'd definitely... More

The Ocean Terrace is a great place to grab a quick meal and/or drinks and enjoy the stunning view. You can often get a seat here with little wait and its a great way to enjoy Georges without having to make a reservation in advance.
