Everything was under construction so it was difficult to assess but overall I thought the staff was not overly friendly. The top bar was closed at 4:30 pm and only the middle was available for happy hour. The bathroom was closed, which is understandable but...More

Great restaurant with 3 levels. Top for casual eating, middle is the bar and it’s restaurant and down stairs is fine dining. Favorite is the bar. Always lively and great food. Huge wine list. Known for the black bean soup!

Locals recommended it so we went. Great view, great food, pricey but worth it. We got a table overlooking the water - sweet!

You will see a little of everything. It is California! I would highly recommend the rooftop dining. The view is amazing. There is a breeze, but they also have heaters they can put by your table.

We had to park on a side-street just down the road. It wasn't far and there was no charge.

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.
