Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely love the view of La Jolla Cove from their patio dining area. Stunning, stunning view. Really appreciate the restaurant accommodating my request to be seated with an obstructed view of the Pacific Ocean on two separate occasions when I booked through OpenTable. For a place with a view, the food isn't terrible. The service was decent. Looking forward to coming back for their 3 courses for $30 specials Sunday to Tuesday nights.
The hostess was really nice. She gave us a great table upstairs with a view. The food is good - I tried the Coast Toast (French toast). The service was nice; the server didn't constantly interrupt us with questions. We were able to eat and chat comfortably. Great place to bring out of town guests.
The view was nice and the service was good. We were disappointed at the food. Several of the entrees lacked flavor and the sauces paired with the dishes were uninteresting. In particular was very disappointed with the halibut. It was very bland and the sauce was mayonnaise flavored and not good. Our other dish was the salmon which also was very average. Wasn't horrible overall but not worth a second visit just for the view.
My wife and I had our anniversary breakfast. The Coast Toast is everything met all my expectations. My wife had chilaquiles, which was absolutely amazing. Easily the best I've ever had. Great Atmosphere and beautiful view (at on the Veranda). Only complaint was the horrible smell coming from the Cove (I guess from the sea lions) sometimes hits the restaurant depending on the breeze.
The view of the cove was quite butif. The noise level came from the road, seals and tourists, however it wasn't annoying. We went for Breakfast on a Friday morning and there was quite a line! Thankfully we made reservations. The cinnamon roll pancakes, French toast, breakfast tacos and crab cake Benedict were all super yummy!
The food is very good and the location is fantastic. Great views from the patio section. The service was excellent. Every now and then you get a wiff of the seals but it is not the bad.overall great place.parking can be tough.sometimes easier to park up off of prospect and walk down.
The Villa is just across the street from LaJolla Cove! We sat on the outside patio after
paying $20 for parking in underground garage! The smell of the Sea Lions was very
strong on the patio. Our waiter was just ok, he forgot to order the chicken that was added
to a salad! The food is just ok, not the best!! Would not go again despite the view!
Dreadfully disappointing as reviews were good and it had been recommended personally to us. We had booked and changed the time by phone with them and were practically snarled at when we arrived and they had no recollection of the booking. We were seated and there was a big ball of food under the table so we had to ask for it to be cleaned. As we waited for our food, staff were noisily unpacking boxes around us, very close by. 3 dishes arrived and our daughter had a very long wait for hers and when it finally came it was a salad missing a key ingredient. We asked why this was missing and then had over a half hour wait for the missing hard boiled egg, having to chase it several times in the process. Despite this utterly bizarre egg episode, the food was overpriced and underwhelming. The smoked salmon salad had the smallest portion of salmon ever and perhaps 4 green beans, the rest was salad leaves. The child's meal was tiny - particularly for the States. The charge for one salad was taken off but the whole experience was still very poor indeed.
We come here every time we're in San Diego. Never disappoints. The service is attentive and friendly. Our party of 6 had smoked salmon plate,cinnamon roll pancakes, French toast, baskets of muffins, scones, and croissant, each one better than the next. Homemade granola with yogurt and berries was served parfait style. Even the sourdough toast with homemade ham was a fantastic. Don't miss place if you have a chance. They take reservations.
Food was mediocre. Bathroom situation was less than desirable--not very clean or in good working order. Despite the smell from the local wildlife below, it was not noticeable inside the restaurant, so that is a plus. The view is nice, but I still wouldn't come back or recommend it.
We always take out of town visitors for the fabulous Coast Toast and White Out, or White Lightening. We were disappointed his time! The servings are now smaller, and the overcooked Coast Toast is a much smaller portion and cut is a sliver rather than a piece of thick "Texas bread", and served on a rectangular dish rather than a real plate! We were not impressed and will not be eager to return. Makes me sad.
This was my first time at this restaurant. Although the food was very good, the restaurant was not very clean. The bathroom was filthy. (Door, walls and floor) made me wonder about the kitchen! We ate on the porch, which was also needed a good cleaning and fresh coat of paint. Too many great restaurants to go back there.
Brockton Villa was such a gem. We had a fantastic view of La Jolla Cove from our table. The atmosphere was cozy and pleasant, our waiter seemed genuinely excited about the menu, and the food was fantastic. If I had it to do all over again, I would have eaten all of our meals that weekend here! Can't wait to come again.
I drove up from AZ with family and friends to celebrate my birthday and the atmosphere was amazing. The staff was friendly, my server was awesome and very attentive and the view is breathtaking! It's on the coast so parking was a nightmare considering we had reservations at 530 but that is prime time for dinner so I didn't complain. Definitely worth the drive and the price.
We love Brockton Villa! Awesome view of La Jolla Cove and excellent food! I love the Coast Toast, Epic Chowder, lobster roll, Salmon steamer, and fish tacos. My husband is gluten free. He loved being able to have some Epic Chowder. We will definitely be coming back soon!
Wow! Where to start? From the incredible views to the attentive and friendly service by our waiter, Shawn, we felt so welcomed and so comfortable throughout our meal. The food was amazing. Each item was so fresh and delicious. Coast toast is a must-order. My open faced breakfast sandwich was unique and fabulous. Our kids were happy with every part of our special brunch, as well. Thank you for making our special day start in such a great way.
Great view of La Jolla Cove from either the patio or balcony. You can hear the sea lions and maybe see them, but not smell them!
The food at Brockton Villa (we went for dinner) was creative and excellent. The service was very, very good as well. Just the right number of contacts, knowledgeable about each dish, friendly, and helpful with a great attitude. If only all servers could be this good! We'll definitely be back to try the much talked about brunch.
Excellent food and amazing view of the cove. Sitting outside you can hear the seals and it's great people watching! Burrata was excellent as was the chowder, also had the special which was delicious. They do not have a full bar, but the wine and sangria is excellent.
I had fond recollections of a meal there years ago and was visiting San Diego again. It completely lived up to my expections. They offered advice on the parking situation which was very helpful. We had a lovely shaded outdoor table. The food was terrific as was the cocktail of the day. Great location, excellent service at the right price point
