                                                Great all around! We had fun with cocktails at the bar, then a yummy appetizer and sumptuous dinner at a table. Fabulous evening!

                                                Excellent dinner. Ordered the mahi mahi, chicken and rigatoni. The rigatoni was supposed to come with shrimp but the manger advised that they ran out of shrimp and offered to replace it with mahi mahi or salmon. We had the mahi mahi and it was excellent. The mahi mahi dish was superb as was the most chicken. Drinks were excellent. Overall a superb meal.

                                                Very surprised that the service was subpar. I was expecting much better. Not crowed durning the week for lunch and waited almost 20 min for service (with attitude). Didn't want to sit me on the rail because I was 1 person but had empty tables for 2 along the rail. Not a good visit this time around. Food was served chilled, not even an "how's everything" from the server. May NOT go back after going 6 times within the past 2 years.

                                                This is an upscale restaurant so my expectations were a little higher than the deliverable. The food was room temperature on delivery and the table that we sat at wobbled the entire time. The only reason why I would give this a four or five star is because our server was really awesome. Her energy was everything. But I came to experience the food not our server.

                                                Although the ambiance was stunning and the food was good, we felt rushed from the minute we sat down! Which sucks! The waitress didn’t look up from her screen much, & took our appetizer before we were done with it ): seemed like a super in & our atmosphere, even when you’re paying for 3-course meal & drinks.

                                                We dined at Level2 for Valentine’s Day and it was bustling. Service was a little scrambled, with various servers stopping by our table, but everyone was attentive and the food was fantastic. The view of a white rooftop between us and the ocean was not exactly what we had pictured, so we understand why folks might opt for the top level of the restaurant! But it was a lovely view nonetheless and a very welcome evening out. Food was truly top-notch, particularly the mahi mahi and the rigatoni dishes. And the cocktails are fab too.

                                                The menu was smaller than I expected. The food was good but nothing I would get again. The place was also pretty dead for a Friday night. SD Magazine rated this place top atmosphere, I’m guessing they rated this in the summer. Anyway, place was ok, no red flags, but if I had to go back I would go in the summer and sit on level 3.

                                                Quality of food was very average. Price was too high. Menu very limited. Seating was windy and cold. Will never go back.

                                                Although I have lived in San Diego all my life, 74 years, this is the first time I have eaten at Georges. I brought some out of town guests for lunch and couldn't have had a more delicious meal. Our waitress, Anna , was outstanding. She new all about the menu and diffidently new the cocktail list. My wife and I were in the industry for 25 years and know a pro when we see one. She is a true asset to your establishment. The food was outstanding and everyone had something different. I can see why your restaurant has been in business as long as it has . Great job. Peter Daly

                                                Great view and ambience. The drinks were impressive as well. I got the wild fields of lavender cocktail which was really tasty! My husband got a margarita that was also very good. Food was very mediocre. Service was good.

                                                The view was nice, not as great as I expected but still good. The service was good, our waitress was very nice, attentive, knowledgable about the menu, and helpful. There was a creepy bald guy who kept staring at us, I think he may have been the manager possibly but if he was he should of just came over and asked us how our dining experience was because it was weird. The food was okay, severely overpriced in my opinion. The heaters really don’t work at all. Overall, I would go back for the service and the view. I’d probably just get a drink and an app though, otherwise not really worth it to me.

                                                We ordered three appetizers, a salad and then main courses; server brought salad first, then appetizers — it was not in sequence and kitchen should have brought appetizers before salad course... Also, server should not ask if we would like dessert when we are still eating main course Management should consider training servers better to provide a better dining experience — considering fact that Level2 at George’s is such a spectacular setting and beautiful restaurant

                                                Hostess was not friendly but it was a very busy New Year's day. The view of the cove was awesome (ask to be seated by the window/wall which provides a great view of the ocean. Food (rigatoni with shrimp, burger and vegan burger (which was quite good), kale salad with chicken and grilled shrimp tacos) was tasty and just the right temperature. We also had chips and dip and hummus and pita bread. Seemed a little pricey for lunch ($156) but La Jolla and the view were probably within the range. Wait staff was attentive. Definitely do valet parking. Very impressive drink menu. Overall great experience!

                                                We were very disappointed in our dinner tonight--the food was good, but we had specifically noted that it was a birthday celebration, a special one. When we checked in we were asked whose birthday it was and we told them, but after that--nothing. The waitress was a bit harried and made no mention of the birthday. When we ordered dessert we thought a candle would be appropriate, or at least a wish for a happy birthday from the server, but nothing. Perhaps George's does not do this anymore? At any rate, it put a damper on what was supposed to be a festive occasion.

                                                Food was good, the shrimp and fish tacos were greatly quality seafood and really tasty toppings! Definitely paying for the view more than the quality of food but the view is absolutely incredible.

                                                I had dinner here and it was outstanding. I ordered the pork chop dinner and it was delicious. Very tasty and tender. I asked for some adjustments (i.e. mashed potatoes instead of quinoa) and it was made with no problems. Our server was very attentive. The only drawback was that we had seats overlooking the ocean but it was too dark to see the ocean. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed dinner there.
