You’re looking for good quality food that is unique and, because you’re at one of the most picturesque seasides in California, sitting a table with a view is probably a high priority. There are establishments here in La Jolla, Ca, serving some of the finest hand crafted meals in America, as well as more laid back eateries ideal for grabbing notable meals.
For the finest of La Jolla fine dining, George’s at the Cove is the classic choice. It’s been ranked as one of the top 100 restaurants in all of the United States. This is a venue that entices people who don’t consider food as simply food; they see it as an art.
Slightly less known fine dining gems include The Marine Room, Tapenade Room, Eddie V’s Prime Seafood and Nine-Ten. Being by the water lets these venues offer the highest caliber of lobster, crab, shrimp and fish, which is why we recommend trying as much seafood in La Jolla as possible! Pair the first class ingredients with wonderful atmosphere and excellent service, and you have yourself some truly top notch restaurants. Eddie V’s, like George’s at the Cove, gets an especially high thumbs up for its ocean view.
