George's is beautifully situated above the Cove in La Jolla and features fantastic views from all three levels. If you have relatives in town and it's not too hot or cold out, I would recommend sitting outside under umbrellas on the Terrace Patio. The view is amazing, the menu is reasonable and yummy, the staff is busy but excellent. The Pacific View Bar serves the same menu as the Terrace, providing a nice alternative if the weather is uncooperative. They have a covered balcony that can have the front face open so you feel like you're outside but with more heat lamps and a rain shield, this balcony in my opinion has an even better view than the Terrace and is narrow- so all the tables are close to the edge. The base level of the restaurant is their pristine newly remodeled "California Modern" restaurant. This menu and standard of service is what George's is really known for. The menu isn't heavy, it's inventive, and their Chef Trey Foshee is so picky about the freshest ingredients- he or his Sous Chef Elizabeth Murray travel to Chino Farms daily and arrange much of the menu from there. This is a place that is serious about food and has an amazing view and professional servers to boot. Their remodel is definitely sleek and modern and totally different than before... I love it!
