The food was good and the ambiance was very nice. Everything else was sub-par for an establishment of this caliber. Nothing was bad, but nothing was good enough to justify the high prices and hype.
Great ambiance and good food. Perfect for groups to enjoy food and ocean views
Very nice ocean view but food overpriced and small portion
One of the best placed in La Jolla. Spectacular view. Food is terrific.
Hostess upgraded table for us us to the rail. Andrew was friendly and informative! Thanks for the champagne! You made our 30th anniversary very special.
Hostess was not very accommodating - I made a reservation several week ago. When we arrived there were 2 tables by the window open. We asked to sit at one of the window tables and were told that there were other guest waiting for them. I would think that those tables would be reserved for guests with reservations!
Great food, drinks and service with a fabulous view.
I have been to this restaurant in the past and loved it, I was highly disappointed by the menu selection and overall food. We were here on vacation and I wanted to take my boyfriend somewhere special and it was not special at all.......Try Dunedin in Northpark or Waterbar in Pacific Beach.....Better food and experience for the money
A great experience except the hostess. They were neither friendly or ever smiled. It was a bad start to be honest. The waitress made up as she was awesome.
Always great service and awesome eats - sitting on the terrace gives a fantastic view of the bay and you can see the pelicans fly by (in formation) and take some good photos.
Great spot for lunch or dinner in La Jolla....food was very good, service to match...don't hesitate to dine here, it's great.
Too crowded and frenetic , we never felt relaxed . Sent one dish back as it was not made fresh. Wish we’d known the 2nd floor had a better ambience . Really ok to skip.
Horrible service. Server rolled her eyes at us when we ordered a sprite and it was flat so we politely asked for another one to replace it. Loud music was annoying and they gave my husband a bottle of olive oil for his birthday and did not sing happy birthday to him. Horrible restaurant. Took 1 hour to get our food.
Empty, slow service, food fair
Had a family lunch on the terrace and it was great. This restaurant has an amazing view of the Pacific and the gentle breeze was refreshing. Three of us had the sandwiches and one had the tacos and all gave positive reviews. Prices are reasonable.
Beautiful view and great food!!
This was an excellent meal with family and friends. The view was great.
I live in New Jersey but my son lives in San Diego so whenever I come for a visit I always come to George's at the cove. The food is delishious and the view cannot be beat.
I go every time I'm in San Diego (LaJolla) It never fails. Ate on the Ocean Terrace (new to me, about 8 years old) Spectacular everything. Waitress Jenny was great! My filet and my wife's Halibut were both delicious. Dessert of warm chocolate cake and gooey Toffee were perfect. Go! Reasonably priced for what it is.
We are here on holidays. My 3year old ate your spaghetti so fast. He LOVED it!
Our server was lovely and very kind to our son.
Great location and fantastic view! Ordered the halibut per waiter suggestion, was very dry, corn mix good. Husband ordered salmon, same thing was dry.
Great views, great service, great food
Great way to end our trip!
Food ok. Sun was in our eyes the entire time. Asked for the shade but they didnt move us. Good location though.
We were a group of 10 - table was ready when we arrived which is always nice. Service was spot on - there just when we needed them. Food was delicious and the out-of-towners were wowed by the views and sunset. Always a great time at Georges.
Wonderful seafood and ocean view from the rooftop terrace. A memorable experience
Poor food and terrible value. Trading on its scenic location... 3% on all food to help pay staff well but then the minimum tip on the iPad when paying the bill is 20%... I declined that tip but gave the waiter a 10% cash tip. He took it wordlessly and walked away. Overall a poor experience... view is not worth it. Go next door to dukes.
The view from the terrace is excellent otherwise I would probably not return. The steak (filet) was tasteless, but the halibut was really good. Our waitress would disappear for about 20 minutes to 30 minutes then come back and ask us the same questions we had already answered...like we had to order another round of drinks three times, weird. the hummus is really good, the tombo fish was not that great, didn't mix well with the noodles. For the view and drinks, you cant beat it.
Excellent place for lunch with a view. Good wine list.
We used OpenTable to reserve a table for my husband's 40th birthday party. We requested a table by the glass and this was not accommodated despite one becoming available soon after we were seated. Waiters and service was great, but the food was lacking. The tuna was over done and rubbery. The skirt steak too was tough and portion size was tiny - it mentioned coming with spinach as a side but it was more like a condiment - less than a mouth full. All in all, for the same price I'd recommend hopping next door to a different restaurant for the same views and better food.
Service was okay but the food was horrible. I would never go back to this place again.
Overall, good experience. Beautiful view. Food decent. Service good. Portions could be a bit larger, more varied and would be nice to serve some breadsticks or chips and salsa as a freebie. You'd probably sell more liquor that way👍.
Food good, view always worthwhile and plenty of ambiance.
We made a reservation, arrived a few minutes earlier and even though the restaurant was packed, our table was ready and waiting for us. We had fabulous service, food was very good, views wonderful and did I say, great service? Great time had by all!
I had special instructions and the servers accommodated
Great spot and views, food was good and service was quick. We had our 16 month old with us and it was no problem at all. Cocktails were a a little bit weak but other than that it’s a great spot.
Good food, awesome views, eclectic menu, great deserts!
The hostess seating us was a bad first impression, with many open tables no offer to seat us where we wanted, so we had to suggest a change for better view. After that initial bobble, the Waitress was excellent, food was great and view outstanding. Great lunch spot.
Great place. Great view. Good food. Valet parking is a rip off. $11.00 is over the top.
One of the best dining experiences ever. Our reservation was for 8:45. We were jet lagged and showed up at 7:30. We were seated with no problem. The service was friendly and responsive. Every ingredient of each meal was delicious. Great ambiance eating on the outdoor terrace. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Bravo!
Great view and seat selection. Didn't know the kitchen was closing because it was our first time on the terrace. Had to rush to order our lunch. The server was friendly and professional. Received an olive oil for a birthday present. They were flexible with our stroller and seating. The fish sandwich was fantastic, ceviche was bland, and the serrano margarita was tasty. Thank you.
