La Jolla restaurants offer anything you might be looking for, from Italian or California cuisine, dressing up for a formal evening out, or simply dining in casual wear on the patio with friends. There are plenty of options to choose from depending on your mood.

Keep reading for a list of a few of our top choices of where you should dine next time you’re in La Jolla.

Donovan’s Steak and Chop House

Donovan’s is one our favorite restaurants in the San Diego area for steak. They offer a superb selection of wine, a fantastic bar, and great ambiance. They used to be located in the UTC but have now moved to their new location in the La Jolla Village. Stop by their new location with friends or family for an evening of fine dining and relaxation.


Herringbone offers a chic, hip and one-of-a-kind dining experience. The restaurant aims to take its patrons on an ocean-to-culinary excursion and social dining experience all within a beautifully renovated 1903s-era warehouse.

Owned by celebrity chef Brian Malarkey, this restaurant often features a lively scene and coastal cuisine with an emphasis on line-caught seafood and excellent meats. With fun twists on classic concepts, you are always sure to enjoy farm fresh cuisine any time you dine here.

George’s at the Cove

This is a dining experience you will soon not forget! Marked by sparkling ocean views, George’s offers a decadent array of contemporary California cuisine in an elegant setting.

The restaurant offers three distinct restaurants, with an upstairs patio for breakfast and lunch, a second level for casual dining and drinks, and a lower level for more formal dining. All levels offer incredible views of the ocean, so no matter where you choose to dine you will always get a great view any time you visit George’s.

Bistro Du Marché

Bistro Du Marché was named after La Jolla’s popular Open Aire Farmer’s Market and works closely with farmers to incorporate incredible local flavors into every dish. The menu is constantly changing to reflect what is in-season, fresh, and delicious. The restaurant offers an intimate setting, perfect for a romantic night out with your loved one.

The Grill

The Grill is an iconic La Jolla restaurant. The restaurant gives its guests an exclusive view of the incredible Torrey Pines Golf Course and is a great place to unwind with friends after a gorgeous day playing a few rounds of golf.


The Grill features a lovely outdoor patio, ideal for enjoying drinks and great food during the warmer weather months.

No matter what La Jolla restaurants you choose to sample, it’s hard to go wrong, and it’s even harder to pick a favorite.
