Description: George's at the Cove is a renowned three-level dining destination located in the heart of La Jolla overlooking the Pacific Ocean and northern coastline. We offer three distinct restaurant and bar concepts – one fine dining and two casual – with stunning ocean views and award-winning cuisine. Known for its splendid rooftop setting, the popular George’s Ocean Terrace – complete with a newly expanded and elevated bar – offers casual al fresco fare for lunch and dinner that is perfectly complemented by sweeping ocean views. Recently reinvented from floor to ceiling, the all-new George’s Level2 – located on the second level – is elevating the craft of cocktails with housemade ingredients and handcut ice. Featuring all the classics and innovative modern creations, like the signature Sea3, Level2 offers a variety of cocktails well-suited to any taste. On the lower level, George's California Modern is a contemporary fine dining restaurant and bar featuring seasonally-driven California cuisine. Guests are invited to explore “San Diego on a plate” through a la carte or tasting menus inspired by the lifestyle, ingredients and sense of place that is San Diego. Whether celebrating a special occasion or simply looking to enjoy the San Diego lifestyle to its fullest, George’s at the Cove is an essential part of any visit to the region.

I love this place, they have an awesome view area on the top, they have heaters for at night & they loan you a clean white fluffy blanket to keep the chill off. They have yummy food & good looking waiters. I love this place!

In the heart of old La Jolla right on the edge of a beautiful cliff!!! Expensive but well worth it! The staff could not be more helpful and wether you go for lunch, dinner, or for drinks at sunset it is classic La Jolla charm. We live here so for us special occasions it is great to dress up and enjoy magnificent food, or dress down and eat outside with cocktails and wonderful views. Parking is tight but valet is there, as well as a underground parking garage down the street!!!!

A friend and I went here for happy hour and it was amazing! The view, ambiance, and service was impeccable! You seriously cannot find a better view of the water from a restaurant! I liked it so much I returned for a swanky dinner that was delicious! This place is a must when you're in town or for a special occasion!

My wife and I had a lovely lunch at George's at the Cove in August 2013. We were lucky enough to get a table right at the edge of the patio overlooking the ocean on a gorgeous day. The incredible view was matched by the incredible food, incredible service and great ambiance. I eat well, and this was honestly one of the top 5 meals of my life. The food (fish tacos in my case, gnocchi for my wife) and drink (possibly the best margarita I've ever had) were absolutely top notch.

If you're in La Jolla, do what you must to get a table at George's. Can't wait to get back!
