George's Ocean Terrace
Made my Birthday perfect !!!Celebrating my Birthday with my husband..... Beautiful view of La Jolla Cove we dine here often... The server, Brook was great !
The food was fabulous (: I had steak salad so delicious and my husband had shrimp tacos equally as good.... I was treated like a real Birthday girl. Everything was lovely....5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome viewyou have the view of the sea lions and they are awesome! you get to look out to the ocean and see the shore, we looked up the sunset and based our reservation time on this. Service was also great and made such great recommendations!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, Fabulous George'sI just love this place! The food is healthy with a wide variety of choices for us who are gluten-free, dairy-free. The service is outstanding, and I always bring my out-of-town guests here for lunch to wow them with the view and great food. Using Open Table to book, it just couldn't be easier, and their valet parking is the bomb. I always feel I am treated as a special guest (among thousands of other fans) and you will be too. There is frankly no other choice in La Jolla that comes close to George's for me. It has been, and remains, my favorite spot to go for a guaranteed great dining experience!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful place for specialwonderful place for special occasions. food was very good and staff were friendly, real people. important to make a reservation to get a good seat.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Dining ExperienceGeorge's Terrace is a perfect setting for business or pleasure. Food and service is always very good. Scenery is un-parallel. The outdoor atmosphere is relaxing while still very conducive to good conversation. The menu selection is just right as are wine and drink options. Tasty appetizers and the can't miss soup. Only one small issue on this visit; the Tombo came in two thin pieces versus the nice thick steak, done med-rare. Otherwise, a solid outing for our table of 11. The servers took great care of us. Look forward to my next visit to George's!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, outstanding foodAs always, outstanding food and service. Not to mention an awesome view!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA View to Live ForGeorge's always delivers on food -service- ambiance.

The octopus appetizer was TO DIE FOR. It literally melted in my mouth. Same with the sticky toffee dessert. The view was obviously amazing, service great, and the wine was superb. A thousand thumbs up for one of my favorite restaurants!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinner. LovedHad a wonderful dinner. Loved the atmosphere. Would definitely go again4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge's Ocean Terrace isGeorge's Ocean Terrace is the quintessential location for La Jolla dining. The food is always exceptional, and coupled with the location and scenic vistas, George's Ocean Terrace offers a one-of-its kind not to be missed dining experience!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMInitially not impressed asInitially not impressed as I had made the reservation over a month in advance & had specified in an email that it was a special occasion & we would be very grateful if we could have a view table. When we arrived the hostess took us to a table inland & when I asked if there was nothing available on the waterside especially since we had made the reservation so far in advance she was quite rude & aggressive & we were not happy. It was the last night of our vacation, we were celebrating a 50th birthday and 20 years of friendship so we let it go as we didn't want the table or the hostess to detract from our gratitude of life and friendship. That being said, we had a lovely server and the food was absolutely delicious.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here for dinnerSecond time here for dinner and as expected...received WONDERFUL service and high-quality menu selections.

Great view of the Pacific.

I've dined there over the years and it's always been a good experience.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFun food, fabulous viewGeorge's Ocean Terrace is top notch for the food, the view, and the service. I had the shrimp ceviche - flavors were spot on with a fresh, crisp, tanginess. My only offer of improvement was with the dessert, a fruit cobbler. It could have been outstanding with cinnamon and nutmeg in the cobbler batter, it was a bit flat. Should have gone with the chocolate choice :)4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed a nice, relaxingWe enjoyed a nice, relaxing lunch on the roof. Great view. Attentive staff. Good food.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge's at The Cove - 5 Stars!We enjoyed a 5-Star lunch in every way, including a wide menu of flavorful and different selections (fish tacos exceeded our expectations), flawless service, at a reasonable price, with one of the best ocean views anywhere in the world.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter, Billy was great.Our waiter, Billy was great.

And neither does the sunset view!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge's Ocean Terrace isGeorge's Ocean Terrace is everything promised. We waited & got a table by the glass barrier; the weather couldn't be better. The food was better than expected, for what I thought was going to be tourist directed. We each got something different; there's something for everyone. The price was so reasonable. Despite the wait, no one rushed us. A memorable lunch at La Jolla.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my folks on their lastTook my folks on their last day in town for a true Southern Cali experience. They were blown away.

We are able to visit la Jolla about once a year and always look forward to the view, scene and fantastic food....3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI love George's Ocean TerraceI love George's Ocean Terrace and choose it for special occasions like Easter. I took a friend whom I know to be difficult to please. She couldn't make up her mind about table seating--she changed 4-5 times. Finally, after choosing one, she asked that the heater be turned on. The manager was so gracious and patient with her explaining that she wouldn't get much heat from it where she was sitting. He brought her two lap blankets. All staff gave their best to make her comfortable without any attitude. I was so grateful! We enjoyed our food, the sights and all the fun of celebrating Easter with everyone else there. I breathed a huge sigh of relief!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantastic meal! WeAnother fantastic meal! We have been coming here for a while and have had the best service and great food!
We will be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge's renowned soup isGeorge's renowned soup is to die for! The restaurant will provide a written recipe if requested.

Spectacular scenery and awesome service.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the place we alwaysThis is the place we always bring out of state visitors because we know we will never be disappointed.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to eat,This is a great place to eat, grab a drink and watch the waves from the panoramic rooftop deck. It should be noted that the restaurant has changed over time from casual to more of L.A. chic. I brought my parents there for lunch on their anniversary and it was a little too loud and a little to L.A. for them. The loud music made it a bit hard to talk. If I were grabbing dinner with my wife or friends then this place is a no brainer. However, I won't take my parents there again. They do have a good mix of fruity cocktails for the wife and local microbrews for the beer lovers.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBEST of LaJollaEverything as divine from the sunset, to the cocktails, the entrees--seared ahi and soba noodles was wonderful, fish tacos, fried calamari, short ribs, kids entree portions are huge! We skipped dessert though because we were so full! Just a perfect evening from start to finish. A must in LaJolla!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorableThis place was so much fun! Outdoor patio seating~ even on a cool evening it was the right spot! Wonderful seafood selections and the wine list was delectable. We became chilly, so they brought us lap blankets for warmth.

It's always been a great dining experience and this was no exception.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, we were not disappointeOnce again, we were not disappointed. The young staff extends every courtesy from the bar to the dining. There is a reason why this place is so popular. The food is excellent and the whole experience creates memories. Cannot wait to dine there again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSun....the Pacific Ocean....Enjoy!George's Ocean Terrace is well described by its name. The attraction is a panoramic view of La Jolla Cove, along with a pleasant meal and steady service. It is a memorable place to take a visitor or client for brunch or lunch when the sun is shining and the breeze is calm. One potential problem is the partial coverage of the seating with umbrellas, a sure nuisance for someone without sunscreen if they are sitting in a bright spot of the mosaic coverage.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a fantastic restaurantThis is a fantastic restaurant with great food and service and an unparalleled view of the Pacific. A "must do" for visitors to La Jolla!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group found the experienceOur group found the experience to be magical.

The Ahi tuna was wonderful served on a bed of miso flavored noodles. Great stop.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMillion dollar view!The view overlooking seal beach is amazing. Good drinks and great food. The farro salad with shrimp was delicious and a nice sized portion. Boyfriend had the snapper special and it was also very good. I've only been here twice because I've only visited San Diego/la jolla twice but would definitely go back. Make sure to request a table along the edge.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, Service and Views spectacularWe planned a trip to San Diego and after checking Open Table reviews of George's Ocean Terrace we booked our reservation about a month in advance. Wow! We had the very best table on the terrace and were there for a spectacular sunset. The service and food was very good and I would definitely recommend this for a special occasion place. The downstairs is also very nice but the views and ambiance of the terrace made our experience very special on the terrace.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great experience. TheWhat a great experience. The staff was so accommodating and the food was excellent. What a great time!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI was a bit concerned aboutI was a bit concerned about bringing my 7 year old to George's based upon other reviews. Have no fear! The patio had several younger diners, and they have the usual kid offerings for them. The food and service were excellent and the view was beautiful. We have one more night in La Jolla, and per my 7 year old's request, we are heading back to George's!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
