Ocean Terrace - George's at the Cove
Beautiful views, great food, and wonderful staff.
My family and I went there for a special occasion and we loved it. We had the Lobster sandwich and it was incredible. The view was spectacular, I would definitely recommend this place.
Experience was great but sadly the waiter seemed annoyed or maybe just didn’t like us. Might of been having an off day but just expected a little bit of warmth or friendliness.
Everything about this place is outstanding. The view, the food, the service. Impeccable. I love that they have blankets in addition to heat lamps, to keep you nice and toasty. If you have fussy eaters in your group, note that you can get the lunch burger at dinner (and my son reports that the plain pasta with parm is perfect).
A beautiful, scenic restaurant with high quality food options. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely place to view the sunset from the Terrace. Food was amazing and inventive, service was fast, friendly and efficient. The open air of the terrace is so refreshing. The fish tacos were fantastic, the soup of the day was black bean, chicken, and broccoli...probably the BEST soup I’ve ever eaten. The child’s menu is wonderful. Highly recommended!
Waiter oversold us on way too much food! He kept prompting us to order more. Normally you don’t order an appetizer for every single person in a party.
Ambiance and food were great! Had high expectations for Valentine's Day dinner and they met them. Great on house ceviche.
Never disappointed here, food was great as usual, atmosphere and vibe was great, value was great, our sever was great. Perfect Valentines evening.
We came here for dinner on Valentine’s Day and were underwhelmed, however, our waiter was wonderful.
This place just isn’t worth the hype - even with the great view. Take your money elsewhere!
THE BEST!!! Must try the soup!
Fantastic service, delicious food wonderfully presented and picturesque views
Great food, excellent service, outstanding views. Very nice way to celebrate my birthday.
The service was surprisingly slow when we came to this restaurant. It took a long time to get drinks and food ordered and served. Was honestly shocked after reading such good reviews about this restaurant. Was not very impressed.
The service was sooooo lousy. It took 45 mins for two drinks to come out and it wasn’t even that busy. It was outrageously expensive for how long it took to her two drinks with a waiter. Beautiful setting but I’d think twice about coming back for the price and the service
Underseasoned food, over priced. Service was bad, noticed other people getting better service. Table was sticky and the salt and pepper shakers have not been clean in a long time. It's not hard for the servers to wipe them down. View was the only good thing but other restaurants have that view.
Wonderful spot to enjoy a good drink and delicious lunch. Great service and AWESOME view!
Great views. Okay service. Okay food.
Love the food. Waiter was very sweet and accommodating. The wait for things was long but they were packed. Will definitely go back.
Best place to bring out of town visitors on a sunny day!
I was celebrating my anniversary. The staff was great and made excellent recommendations. The halibut was phenomenal and the Serrano margaritas was the best margarita I’ve had in a while!
Service was decent, but dinner was overpriced and didn't deliver the experience I had come to expect at this resto...seems George's has gone downhill over the last few years.
Lunch was good.
Delicious food. Outstanding ocean view. Wonderful and helpful service.
We are from Chicago. We come to CA every year for 6 weeks. Our first stop on our way from airport to AVIARA is George’s and usually every week while we are in CA. We come for the fish tacos special soup hamburgers an d yummy dessert. We were so disappointed in the fish tacos this time. We have been coming for 15 years. This is the first time we have been disappointed. If this is your new recipe we will not come back. We will give you one more try
We had a lovely breakfast. I had expected there to be brunch items on the menu but it was definitely lunch. The food was very good and we had a table with a view of the Cove. It was Superbowl Sunday so it was pretty quiet. My guests from France loved it.
Lovely view with great food!
Had a guest come in from out of town who wanted to see La Jolla so we came here for lunch. The day way beautiful and the views delivered. We had 11:30 reservations but arrived early because I wasn’t familiar with the area or drive time. Walked in at 10:50 and could not be seated until 11. We ended up
Beautiful skyline, good atmosphere and special dishes and drinks. That’s paradise.
Well done guys. See you soon
Always a great place. Perfect place for my wifes 60th BD. Great service!
WE loved the food, and the view certainly can't be beat. It was expensive... cocktails were $15 each for lunch, appetizer was $15 and the entree (fish Tacos) was $15 or $20 for lunch, for not that much fish. All in all it was delicious but expensive. The only downside was that there weren't that many seafood options at lunch (dont know about dinner), and when you are in san diego, I can get burgers back home... i wanted sea food.
Our server recommend Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake with toffee sauce, brown butter oats and vanilla ice cream for dessert. My husband and I shared it and it was just delicious! All of the folks who offered service were attentive and knowledgeable, starting with the person who shook our hand as he greeted us and later provided information about a fish dish to complement my wine choice and including our own server. Beautiful sunset from the outdoor eating area.
Great views. Attentive service. Automated checkout. Wonderful way to dine in La Jolla.
Service was prompt and efficient. Their appetizer portions are great for sharing and were vibrant on the plate and on the palette. The grilled octopus and burrata cheese were both delicious. For the entrees, I loved the short rib; it was savory and quite filling. I definitely plan on coming here again!
Nice place. Good food, however not exceptional. Roof top is not my favorite. Next time ist should be the restaurant.
Another memorable meal at George’s 12 years after our first visit for our anniversary! Only critique was the music on the ocean terrace was much louder than we remembered and deemed necessary and would rather see reserved for the bar area on the ocean terrace vs piping out right over head. Food and service were excellent though!
Great ocean view in the open air ambiance.
Much recommended to get feel of La Jolla.
very well-prepared food....
Fantastic spot with a great view! The food was really good - highly recommend the fish tacos - but we will probably not come back during Restaurant Week as we felt a little confined on what and how to order. Our server was very attentive and we appreciated the team effort of all the wait staff when it started getting busy. We will definitely be back!
We live in Boston Ma and every time we go to Southern California we go out of our way to go to Georges Ocean Terrace at La Jolla Cove! The atmosphere, quality of food and view are all amazing!
