California Modern

Welcome to California Modern, where our passion is telling the San Diego story through food.


We approach every day as a special occasion – one that begins with a bounty of locally grown and harvested products and ends with inventive preparations that surprise and delight our guests. Our ocean view dining room is contemporary yet comfortable, an intimate setting where conversation comes easy, and our friendly, knowledgeable staff serve as guides to the many exciting choices available. Come have dinner with us and celebrate the flavors of San Diego.

Located on the lower level of George’s at the Cove.


Our menu allows for à la carte ordering, but our emphasis is on tasting menus where we invite our guests to be part of a conversation about the lifestyle, ingredients and sense of place that is San Diego.

A 3% surcharge will be added to each bill to help cover increasing operations and labor costs.

It’s Time To Celebrate

Planning a Party? Dining With A Group? Make California Modern the venue for your next event.

California Modern Reservation Tbl3

TBL3 is a 12-14 course tasting experience where you put yourselves in our hands for the evening. Named for the iconic ocean view “table three” where your meal will take place, this exclusive experience is brought to you by chef de cuisine Jonathan Bautista and his highly skilled team. There are no choices and no substitutions. Instead, you will be part of a playful, spontaneous encapsulation of time and place – an evening that could not happen anywhere else but George’s.

TBL3’s beauty is in its simplicity; there are restaurants in the world that prepare more elaborate cuisine — but perfecting the salad, as does George’s with TBL3, is true magic...
