Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews
Had a reservation, but had to wait 20 mins for table. Had to remind waiter to bring water, bread, and heat lamp. Wanted extra sauce and brought wrong kind of sauce twice. Fish was very dry, both as my seared halibut and as the fish taco. Very expensive for the poor service and dry fish.
Spectacular view, but it can be offset by the smell from either the seals or the pelicans (not sure which). The food was adequate, although the bacon order was initially undercooked and then returned burned. The server recognized this immediately and took it off our bill, but no bacon for my husband on Father's Day :(
We were in town for an anniversary celebration. The photos online make the place seem a little more refined than it actually looks in person, but don't let it throw you. We had no wait because of the reservation but we did arrive 10 minutes late. It took 30 minutes to find a place to park and walk back to the restaurant. Simply put the view was beautiful, the food worth the drive and then some, and the service was better than the very good food. I would recommend it to anyone.
We came to BV to celebrate a school promotion. Our reservation was at noon on a Wednesday. Parking was easy given summer has just started. It can be difficult to find spaces in the immediate area. They put us in a small room that had a large booth. Very private, protected from the cool breeze, lovely views. Wait staff was polite, knowledgeable and very pleasant. Food was fantastic. Ample portion. Fresh ingredients. Great choice for our celebration.
Lovely patio dining with view of ocean. Could occasionally smell the fragrance of the local sea lions, but nothing to affect our enjoyment of the food. Large portions, and everything we ordered was delicious- coast toast, chilequilas, viarito, and more. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast here!
We were looking for a casual dinner by the ocean and requested a table with a view. We were seated on the small balcony upstairs, and the view of La Jolla Cove was fantastic. We had the fish tacos and the halibut - both excellend and good portions. Service was friendly and helpful, the food was tasty, and we had a nice time. They do have cocktails (they call them Brocktails) however it's not a full bar - mostly focused on wine and beer. Nice design, cosy oceanside cottage atmosphere. Would definitely recommend for casual dinner or brunch in LaJolla.
This restaurant was recommended to us by a 'native' La Jolla resident as her most favorite place to eat. The food was delicious and the staff very knowledgable and efficient and friendly. This was topped of by the fantastic view and last not least their delectable Crème brûlée.
Great place, my sister was being a snobby brat but the server handled her well KUDDOS for that. The food was fine, I had the crab cake Benedict, it was good but not great. But the view, oh that view, and the service made up for everything. I wouldn't go back for the food personally, but I would go back for some drinks out at their patio while enjoying the view.
The only good thing about this restaurant is the view. The food is ridiculously expensive and depending on what you get, is just okay. There were 4 of us at dinner on Friday and only one person didn't have any complaints. The rest of the party - 3 persons - said that their fish and lamb was dry and overcooked.
Then the bill came and it was ridiculous! Only come here if you wish to spend a lot of money for mediocre food. Will definitely NOT be returning!
