Beautiful view, wonderful food and service. It is what everyone claims it is to be...a great dinner and watch the sunset with the one you love.
We're on vacation, and we chose George's based on it's reputation. Excuse me: "Well deserved" reputation. We were seated promptly for our reservation, chose from their excellent wine list (a Rafanelli Zin I'd been wanting to try), and went for steak dishes (we've been having lots of seafood). My soup was excellent, the hanger steak & pommes frites done perfectly done. We skipped dessert, but they looked great. Service was impeccable. Highly recommended. And being outside was a treat -
Great first experience at George's Ocean Terrace. Food and service was excellent. Slightly disappointing that some major construction nearby had the smell of sewage in the air, but this cannot be pinned on George's or their staff. I will be back, for sure.
I asked my waiter to help with the food choices and the wine to compliment my dish choices. I loved my fresh fish and the wine was a perfect match. The service was excellent and the food was served nicely and weather was superb.
Fantastic views with food to match. Special cocktail with their house-made strawberry infused vodka was perfect on a sunny day.
We had a wonderful Birthday celebration. I made the reservation with a request of Ocean view and we were nicely accomodated. Our server's name was Courtney and she is a true asset to the company. Extremely knowledgable and made great suggestions. We were all amazed at there at the special care she took of us.
Excellent food, fantastic views and service with a smile describes this quaint terrace restaurant. I would highly recommend George's to anyone and everyone visiting the La Jolla area.
It was a bit too noisy for our group, but otherwise everything was excellent.
Another fantastic evening at George's Ocean Terrace, the combination of great food, great service, great ambiance and a view to die for cannot be beaten. Kudos to the management and staff for being able to serve up this kind of experience on such a consistent basis - old and young alike find this the coolest place to go in town.
This restaurant really can't be beaten.
We have never had anything less than delicious dining at George's! The service at both the bar and the Terrace are friendly and comfortable. You absolutely cannot beat the view!! My ONLY negative comment is that the last time we made reservations we were not told that George's does not have highchairs. I know this is not a place that is geared toward children but when we made the reservations we specifically said "party of # and a highchair". I feel like this was the perfect time for the staff that took the reservations to inform us that they don't have highchairs, only booster seats (without a belt, which is not appropriate for a 1 year old). Had we known/been informed that this was the case we would have been happy to bring a chair.
We loved George's Oceanside in La Jolla!! Delish food and well presented .. Friendly staff and impeccable service.. Wish you were in South Carolina!
This is a great restaurant. The view from the rooftop is amazing, the food is fresh, and the service is excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be going back for sure the next time I am in town.
Amazing food and great service. While I'm not a big seafood person, my wife had the octopus and it was so well prepared, even I liked it. Great flavors in the other entrees as well.
With our reservation, the wait was minimal to set up the table vs over an hour without reservations! The food, service, and ambiance were superior! What a great birthday celebration! I'm delighted to know that you take reservations on line for The Terrace!
Lunch on the ocean terrace is always an event. The staff immediately makes one comfortable with their fun, lively and attentive but not overly familiar service. The food is good, clean and geared towards a more healthy lifestyle. I was disappointed in the fish sandwich which was prepared properly as medium rare to medium, just a matter of personal taste. The others had shrimp tacos which were wonderful, and the chicken sandwich, which also looked delicious. I highly recommend lunch on this lovely terrace for a fun experience.
George's has it all but this resto does not rest on its laurels.
Service is always spot on with a trio of servers who graciously offer endless beverage refills (sorry soft drinks/iced teas only), clean up plates as soon as the food upon them disappears and who serve the food in record time.
Food is always beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. The view is of La Jolla Cove and other than the occasional fishy aroma (hey, there are seals and pelicans living down there), this is THE spot in La Jolla to bring out of town guests and, what the heck, yourselves, whenever.
George's is consistently delicious and always a great experience.
Reservations are a MUST.
Oh, the chocolate lava cake is a must have dessert.
One of our favorites for a lunch stop on a trip out West. Always stop in for lunch, to enjoy the view of La Jolla and the ocean and to enjoy some wine and food.
It overlooks the La Jolla cove. While that alone would be enough to merit a visit, Georges always goes above and beyond with an outstanding dining experience. I was part of a large group (11). We were seated promptly and the service throughout the night was well coordinated with our server being especially pleasant and helpful. I had the halibut special. It was prepared perfectly and very tasty. Georges has always been my favorite San Diego restaurant. This visit reinforced that in every way.
Simply amazing! The food and service were fantastic and the view is unbeatable. The lettuce wraps were a special and a new addition to the menu. Hopefully they add them for good.
My wife and I ordered 5 different selections from the menu. We have nothing positive to say about any of the food we chose. The setting is quite beautiful, but you can not eat a view. I would recommend not dining here. Sorry.
Another great afternoon on the deck of George's I especially would like to thank the hostess from the bottom floor who was nice enough to escort my Mother, who doesn't get around so well, to the elevator, and not just point us in the right direction.
Love George's. whenever I come to California I always come to George's. the food is delish and the ocean view is to die for. As always it was a great experience.
My lady had never been there before and is in love with the place! The ambiance, food and service was awesome!
We had an east-west coast reunion with our nephews! Our reservation was for seven people and was ready on time at 7:30. The atmosphere was "energetic" which was the perfect setting for our loud and happy group. Obviously, we had stories to share and lingered for 2 1/2 hours without feeling rushed. Great service, great food and a great time!
great great memory for our 33rd Anniversary! Never forget, treated very special!
Amazing views and were very accomodating to our large group. We had been here before and had to bring some additional friends back to check out the view!
George's is my go to place for visitors to San Diego. I requested an ocean side table for ten and was happily surprised that the request was honored. We had a great time and the food was fantastic.
Penne pasta dish was awful and certainly not worth 20.00. The same comment was made from someone else that had the same dish.
Great view. Not so great smell from all of the sea lions and birds though...
Our experience at George's this week was shockingly bad. I say this because I have been going to George's for more than a decade & consider it one of our finest restaurants. I am not sure if the management has changed or if we went at a day/time when they were understaffed/overwhelmed/unprepared but the totality of the experience was unpleasant. After having to put down my credit card information to make the reservation, and receiving phone & email notifications indicating I would be charged $25/person if our group did not show up on time, we were made to wait for more than 20 minutes to be seated after arriv punctually. We were seated at a table too small (for our group of 5) with little light. Even the food even was surprisingly mediocre.
We absolutely loved our dinner at Georges. It was our 30th Anniversary so we were looking for a place with a nice view of the water. Reservations were easy and we were seated on time. The place was packed and the rooftop view of La Jolla Bay was second to none. Our server was attentive and our food arrived in a decent amount of time. The only complaint we had was on the portion sizes. I know we were paying for the view but when it comes to pasta, it's not going to effect the restaurants bottom line to fill the plate. That being said, the Clams and Spaghetti and Penne and Eggplant were both very tasty dishes. Overall, the prices were reasonable, given the location. Highly recommended for that special dinner.
Loved George's!!!!! Everything was 100 percent!!!
It's all about the view. Hopefully you get seated on the rail.
We came to San Diego on vacation and George's was our first stop, Unfortunately the other two in our party got delayed in Dallas airport (hate Dallas airport) and weren't able to join us boy did try out. We reserved on open table and requested a ocean front table and we got just that. The view was spectacular , and the food was delicious. I did feel the drinks were over priced especially for what you got. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable however my husband had to ask for a refill on his beer which sat empty for a while. Would return to George's.
Outstanding food, attentive, knowledgeable, efficient and super friendly service, outstanding view, couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate our anniversary.
We are from Tennessee and had visited the downstairs dimig room previously. We foynd that we prefer the more casual atmophere of the terrace in addition to the view. We actually ate there twice dropping by for lunch a couple of days before our dinner
reservation. We ate at the bar with Aaron being the bartender. He did a great job of orienting us to the area and making recommendations of sites for us to visit. Our dinner reservation was a real treat due to the sunset view. Wonderful experience!
Held a Business Appreciation Lunch on the Terrace. It was hot due to sun abnormally high temp this day but everyone was very happy and thrilled with the experience. This was my first time experiencing George's Ocean Terrce too and will defninitely suggest it to others.
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Had the fish special...it was fantastic! Wished I lived in La Jolla just so I could go to George's as much as I want!
My group was overwhelmed by the combination of the grest food and great view!
Wonderful experience, as always! The staff go over and above their service level. Always accommodating.
