Good food, good service.
We come into LaJolla often from Indian Wells, and until July 14th always looked forward to eating at the upper terrace. Our server was Sarah A and we were at table 311. My wife ordered a vodka and cranberry juice before dinner. What she received was vodka mixed with some unknown bright red liquid that tasted like a fruit punch or "Kool-Aid". It was not cranberry juice. We asked the waitress, who insisted it was cranberry juice. She finally admitted that it was a flavored drink that is dispensed through a pump by the bartender, and then said to us, "can we move on from this now". The manager (so we were told) visited our table and confirmed her story. We do not like being lied to, if you do not have a simple bottle of cranberry juice, then just tell us. Also, all of your waiters, waitresses and even the manager proudly display their extensive body tatoos. I find that quite inappropriate (health department?).
Awesome service selection for all palates and ages. Quantity and quality were fabulous
Our server, Abraham, was excellent, as well as the food!!
We come to San Diego once a year for vacation. This was the highlight in terms of dining in our trip! We should’ve made more reservations for lunch and dinner.
My all time favorite place in La Jolla.
It was our first trip to San Deigo and our second trip to La Jolla Cove. We had read the reviews on George's Ocean Terrace and were excited to make our reservations. We were not disappointed at all. We started with fish tacos and then the halibut. Both were very good, but the halibut was wonderful. The creme brulee was the end to our excellent meal. Our server Aaron was so helpful with explaining the menu to us and answering every question we had. I have told my friends of our experience and assured them that they should visit also for a grand experience and view. Thank you
Great view and casual enough to gather a group of friends with a touch of modern dining to make it a nice birthday dinner spot. Can still hear the seals at night and the cocktails were spot on!
Our server was delightful, the view terrific and the ahi tuna tostadas delicious!
Great view - great vibe!!
Beautiful views, great tasting food, excellent wait service
George’s was nice but didn’t knock our socks off. It was crowded and tables were smaller. I don’t see what all the hype is about. There wasn’t anything wrong. It just wasn’t worthy of 5 stars.
Awesome view and great food. Staff was very helpful.
We had very good dinner
My wife and I brought our 2 teenagers here for dinner while visiting from Detroit. It was here that I proposed to my wife 25 years ago on the Terrace. George’s was aces all around. Thank you all for a memorable time. Peace-JD
Beautiful sunset, friendly staff, delicious food. Accommodating with our two little ones also.
Great views! Great food!
Every time I make my semi-annual pilgrimage to the west coast I ALWAYS make sure to stop in George’s for a great meal, drink and atmosphere. This place never disappoints!
Food was great.Varied menu many food items good for sharing. Beautiful view we ate on terrace.
All three of us enjoyed our meals: a hamburger, fish taco and shrimp taco. The food was excellent as was the service. My only gripe was the hostess. She must have asked me three times for the name on the reservation and then promptly forgot about me. At one point she said the table was being cleared, but 10 minutes after that, I had to inquire if the table had been cleared, then she asked me for my name!
AMAZING! The view, the service, the food. You have to go near sunset. Breathtaking.
View was magnificent and food was amazing. Very fun dinner.
A great experience. Mark, our waiter, made the evening very enjoyable. The food was wonderful.
We told the hostess it was my inlaws 47th Anniversary, she confirmed that it was indeed on my reservation. She was not friendly as all . Therefore I want surprised when there was no further mention of the special occasion by staff.
Of course the setting was perfect and wait staff was excellent. If hostess would have been more welcoming and possibly the manager came by to acknowledge their 47th Anniversary, it would have been perfect!
Our server, Sage, was amazing. She made it a wonderful experience for us.
Great view and great food
great view. great service. great ambiance. key issue food -- new chef new menu. I've been going to Georges for 20% years sad to see food selection, taste and quality now average.
Had an amazing time at George's! Definitely a go-to spot in La Jolla.
Excellent location, great views and fantastic ambiance. Excellent service, fine food, a bit pricey.
Always great service
Thank you to the staff for making our 40th anniversary week perfect
See you in August
The waitstaff was fast and friendly, the food was good, and the views were beautiful! We're thinking about going back again before we leave La Jolla (and we're here for only 3 days)...
The food is average and overall this restaurant is over rated. I had a reservation and as I was waiting to be seated, a couple without a reservation were seated before us and at a better table. Very disappointing!
Great view. We were there at 5:15 PM and they were already out of an entree.
It was great! We loved the entire experience. They seated us at a great table with beautiful views of the ocean. The service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. Would highly recommend this restaurant!
You can't beat their view! Just perfect way to take in and enjoy La Jolla! Don't miss it!
I forget the name of our server, but he was incredible. He struck the perfect balance between being prompt for service and leaving us be for conversation. He was friendly, attentive, and helpful. Definitely my favorite waiter I've ever had.
Unrivalled view from their rooftop- definitely on the more casual side [plastic chairs etc], but a great spot for less formal business meetings or general dining out! Definitely request a ocean-view table- whilst the entire restaurant is enclosed in glass safety barriers, it’s especially serene in their tables adjacent to said safety glass.
Beautiful. Could not have been better!
I made a reservation for Father's Day. I had forgotten that it was also a weekend that local universities had graduation as well, so it was busy and I understand that impacts service. We were sat on time, but nobody came to our table to offer drinks for at least 10 minutes. Many servers walked by and looked at our table but no one said anything or offered to start us off with drinks. We eventually had to ask for a server. Our appetizer (chips and salsa) seemed to take some time to come out. A hair was found in the chips, which was compensated for on our bill. Main dishes were okay, al pastor tacos, shrimp tacos, and chicken sandwich. Our server was good about refilling our drinks (soda and iced tea) when they were empty. I've been to George's on a non-holiday and the food and service seemed better then.
Vacation must-do spot in La Jolla. Food and view are superb.
