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.

Excellent establishment for lunch overlooking the ocean after walking the beach and touring the local shops nearby the restaurant. A very enjoyable day in LA Jolla

We popped in around 7:30pm without reservations and the place was full. We were told we'd have a 30-40 minute wait for a table. A table opened up within 5 minutes and we were promptly seated. (Note, though, that everyone in your party has to be present to be seated. So no browsing in the nearby stores while you wait.)... More

George's Ocean Terrace is simply fabulous. Whenever we're in San Diego, we make a point to visit. Their halibut special and ceviche are mouth watering (literally, I am sitting here salivating over them)! Their menu is filled with delicious food, we have never had a bad meal. The views from the Terrace are beautiful, especially if you can time your... More

Visited Georges over the 4th of July weekend, the terrace has amazing views. Service is outstanding drinks served right on time. The food is great, the fish taco order can you an extra taco. Apparently the chef loves Halibut so much that it has been the Special a year after my first visit. Desert menu is great

George's Ocean Terrace is fabulous. I love coming here whenever I take a trip to San Diego, this is our stop on our way home, the best thing is the kindness of the staff. The girls at the front desk are so friendly and warm. Our waiter was genuinely a sweetheart. The food is great, the drinks are awesome!! I... More

We've been in San Diego for a number of days and wanted to end our visit with a special dinner and sunset view. We chose this amongst many, many options. When we got there, we missed out on first try at locating the entrance, as it is one of many, all at about the same location. We finally located the... More

This is one of my favorite spots to visit in La Jolla. They have consistent food that isn't too overpriced for the views you get while eating your meal. They are always busy on the weekends so prepare to have a bit of a wait for a table. This is not the place to go with a big group either.... More

Loved the octopus salad, fresh fish and great service! All of the entrees were cooked to perfection. Chef accommodated gluten free without any issues. Will return next time we're in town!
