This is the second floor bar and restaurant section. It is geared towards their cocktail selection of which their menu is literally a photo book and the drinks based upon the various hoods of San Diego. Mixologists work behind the bar making exceptional drinks. I even created up with the help of one of the bartenders. Great spot.

Spectacular views from the terrace of all of La Jolla Coastline. Great for afternoon or evening. Make a reservation for sure.

reservations ! but if you just want a burger and sit on top of the roof deck to see the ocean and more ocean; that's good too!

Super beautiful ocean view with pretty good food. Dates are fine, spaghetti and clams good, farrow salad with tuna was good. Sangria is not worth it. 3 different dining rooms/levels.

Delicious food with an amazing view. It's a little on the pricier side but well worth it for the atmosphere and the deliciousness.

Pricy but delicious, with great views of La Jolla. Parking is tough, so plan accordingly.

There's nothing not to love about this place. They have the most amazing chef in the LA Jolla area. Their outdoor area looks over a breathtaking seaside while you enjoy the aromas of fresh organic local produce blended with the highest quality of meat, fish etc. A must if you're looking for a gastronomic experience

Great place to eat in La Jolla. Beautiful views high price but well worth it. Try to go there once a year when friends come over.

We had drinks at the lounge while watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean at George's At the Cove. That view, the moment over that strong cocktail left an indelible mark on our memory bank.

Spectacular view marred by sea lion colony cesspool. Georges at the Cove does have an incomparable view of La Jolla Cove. It’s too bad that they don’t run happy hour during the summer and that the appalling rank smell from the sea lion colony down below interfered with the enjoyment of the scenery.

This is a must-visit location on the water in La Jolla with a reasonably priced menu for excellent food and unique cocktails. Soak up the view and stay a while!

The view alone is worth it! We sat on the rooftop which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the cliffs. I ordered the fish tacos and my mom ordered the roasted pork tacos. Both of which were on point! The servers were attentive and overall service was great. Definitely plan on going back!

George's Ocean Terrace is surreal.

Picture yourself in a white button-up. California sun shining down as you sip a chilled martini and watch the seals bask. Miles of coast stretch toward the horizon, the city bustles below, and your sesame-crusted tombo just arrived.

Georges is an open air rooftop cafe with a view of the La Jolla Cove. It's classy without being overly expensive or pretentious. The menu, a modern California-inspired offering, is delicious, light, and somewhat upscale. But don't worry, you won't leave hungry. Try the gnocchi.

At George's every member of the staff goes out of their way to make certain you have a great experience.They even brought my fiancee a blanket (she could be cold standing on the surface of the sun). A blanket. That's service.

It can be a special occasion type of place, though it doesn't have to be. But with the trifecta of food, service, and location it certainly is memorable.

There will be a wait if you don't call ahead. It's best to plan a few days or more out.

I would come to eat here JUST for the view. The food was very good but the view was a nice addition :)

Visited George's for a wedding reception. The food was delicious, and the staff was exceptional. The main restaurant and terrace looked so fresh and modern, that I look forward to returning as regular patron.

A very "happening" place to eat. They offer Contemporary California Cuisine. They have a top patio level that offers an AMAZING view, especially on a clear, sunny day. They also have a middle level that's more relaxed and has a "elegant bar feel".
