Our second time to eat at George's was just as delicious as the first. Fish tacos yum. Dates yum. Beet salad yum. Mushroom tacos yum. Short rib sandwich yum. Relaxing. We watched a pod of whales heading south from the terrace. Staff is exceptional. We didn't understand the big deal over the waiters wearing sunglasses-It's bright on the terrace so... More

We had a family celebration with about 12 people. The food was great and so was the service. The prices are reasonable for the location and food. The patio view was the best in La Jolla but they sat us at the worst view when the place was only 20% full. Our guests were seated before we arrived so we... More

The area is so nice to visit that we decided to stop at the bar and not at the main restaurant, in order to have a quicker lunch and to enjoy an outdoor table. The view is wonderful. it is only "disturbed" by the "seal lion blast" coming from the sea, where these very nice but not too scented animals... More

As this is in La Jolla and a well known "UPSCALE" restaurant I was looking forward to dining here.... After looking over the menu (what weird combinations) we decided to eat on the Terrace..... Who puts popcorn w/ Creme... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you were not entirely pleased with everything. Our margaritas are served in a 10oz glass with the amount of tequila at a standard 1 and 1/2 oz pour. We also squeeze fresh lemon and limes, so we do not use cheap store bought sweet and sour. Its a quality drink with... More

AWESOME place to take your visitors who will be blown away by the view! Always consistently good food. You can always count on their signature soup for an appetizer and its easy to share. Great place also to just stop at the bar and have a cocktail with a friend.

Fantastic view and breathtaking sunset, fabulous location. Food good, although I had the muscles, and they weren't in a broth for dipping bread and not many, bread ordinary and slightly burned. Relaxed atmosphere, a place tourist should visit if they want to see "The Jewel" that La Jolla is. I also had their signature chicken, broccoli soup, which was excellent.
