Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews

Outstanding as usual. Coast toast and Greek steamers excellent. Porch tables (2 tops) are too small for two people if each have a full breakfast, and because it is so busy, waitstaff can sometimes be overwhelmed. Also, parking on a busy day can be a nightmare. Even so, the food and views make it worth it!

I made a reservation on Open Table after reviewing their website. Unfortunately I was disappointed in a couple discrepancies on their site. It did not indicate what hours breakfast and lunch were served so we were only able to choose from the breakfast menu when we arrived. We also went specifically for my friend's birthday and to share a mimosa toast. The waiter told us due to being considered a residential zone they could not serve alcohol before 11a. Had I known previously I would have selected a different restaurant. The food was ok but not superb and was overpriced for the quality. The only saving grace was the view of seal beach at La Jolla Shores.

Brockton Villa never disappoints. The location and ambience are truly special and unique. The whole place is charming, but if possible, sit out on the "porch" with a direct view of the ocean and cliffs. Everyone who works there greets you and is very pleasant and professional. The Coast Toast is amazing and not to be missed (you can add one piece as an a la carts side). Highly recommend this experience- especially for brunch. Very popular, so a reservation is a good idea!

I dined here first time during the restaurant week where I ordered crab chowder soup and their signature coast toast. Both dishes were delicious so I came back to the restaurant for the second time. However, we got seated in the restaurant around 11am despite our reservation at 10:45am. I wanted to order the soup again but the server said it was for lunch which will start at noon. It was a bummer so I ordered the coast toast again. The food took verily long and we got food at 11:30am. The toast was a bit soggy and not as good as I had it the other week. I think this place is better for lunch menu.

Second time dining at the Brockton Villa. Both times have been for breakfast/brunch and the food has been amazing both times. The service is extremely quick, sometimes a little too quick - you get the sense they are trying to turn over tables quickly. However, staff are very attentive and helpful. I can't decide which is better about Brockton...the food or the view!!! Be sure to indicate that you want to sit outside because the views cannot be beat. Unobstructed ocean views are about as good as it gets. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a delicious breakfast at a very good price (about $35 for two people). You will not be disappointed!

Delicious food, just steps from the waterfront. Our server was completely attentive and guided us through each item on the menu.
You get the serenade and the subtle stitch of the sea lions while dining outside, but don't let that stop you from dining here. It was an outstanding experience! We'll be back!!!

We made the trip up to La Jolla and to Brockton Villa for breakfast on the recommendation of not one but two of our friends who live in San Diego and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is well appointed with brilliant ocean views across La Jolla Cove and we had a seat on the front terrace. The only negative was the smell from the rocks where the seals and gulls were but this is out of the control of the restaurant and we actually didn't notice it too much after a while! Corned Beef Hash was a triumph and the Smoked Salmon Steamer equally as delicious. We also had a side of the Coast Toast for something sweet and this was divine! So good! Service was impeccable and we could not have been better looked after! Thanks for a great start to the day!

I had been to this restaurant many years ago and thought about it when planning a birthday lunch for my sister-in-law. I was happy to see that it was still in business! We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch there. The food was yummy~especially dessert! The view of the ocean is fantastic and our server did a great job! Would highly recommend it!

The view is breathtaking! Our friend recommended this place so four of us went before going to a wedding in the afternoon. We made a reservation for Sunday brunch and it turned out to be a really good decision. It was 9:30 in the morning and there were already lines for seating. The food is not as breathtaking as the view, but it is good enough to enjoy. Plus, the staff are super friendly so we had an excellent time. It is definitely a must-go place in San Diego. Will come back!

We use to come quite often about 10 years ago and returned as we remembered great eggs Benedict. Perhaps it was the day but the smell from the sea lion beach was nauseating, the service was very good but the eggs B were lackluster (untoasted bread, bland sauce) Having more than one bathroom would also help. I would return, but after 12 for a Bloody Mary and with a strong breeze as it is a lovely place with a great view.

Loved the crab cakes - very moist. The Mediterranean salad was also very fresh and huge! Ordered the salmon, which was delicious with the ginger sauce. The lobster risotto was tasty despite having little lobster and a bit heavy on the butter.
Must have the coast toast for dessert! Was a good end to dinner. Service was friendly and very attentive.

Brockton Villa sits right beside and above La Jolla Cove. We were seated for brunch on an outside table with a great view and only the very slightest smell from the sea lions nearby! The service was quick and the food was good, with a lot of choice on the menu.

Nice old house on the waterfront at La Jolla with good views of the sunset. Food was good, with a wide variety and very fairly priced. Shame there is no draft beer though. And when the wind catches it right, the presence of sea lions on the nearby shore adds an olfactory ambience which is not a desired part of the veranda experience...

The waiter was really nice, we sat at a table for 2 with a great view. We ordered the chilaquiles and there were really good, they serve a lot, i only ate half of them. The only thing I would complain about was the smell of the seals at the beach. But I would defiantly go again loved the view and food.

I just went to have their famous French Toast, and it disappointed me this time! Last time I had it it was so so good, that I decided to go back (even though I'm not a French toast fan), but this time it really wasn't what I expected

Read a Yelp review for this restaurant that said " go for the view and a cup of coffee but eat somewhere else", we should've listened. View was nice, not wow, and the smell of the seals was so aweful we ended up sitting inside. Food was less than average.

The brunch was disappointing, you really pay for the view. One of our orders came incorrect and cold and another was overcooked and overly greasy. We were sat at the table behind the server station and when they were cleaning dishes got splashed with water. We had a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes. Our server was great though, attentive and pleasant. Overall, there are better places in La Jolla for brunch.

We were recommended by a friend to visit on our vacation. The friend insisted we try the French toast...AMaZINg!! I also had fish tacos. Fantastic!! Service was quick and friendly. My only issue was the smell from the sea lions, but we love the view...so that just comes with it. Great place!

We were so disappointed in the meal! Among us, we had the crab benedict, salmon scramble and artichoke/asparagus omelette (which had spinach, not artichoke) and then shared the french toast. We were shocked when every dish was bland, but even more so when we bit into the french toast and found it dry and tasteless. Very disappointing, as we'd been looking forward to our brunch, having not visited in many, many years. Our server, however, was great -- as was the coffee.

The restaurant has an amazing view. Some places we generally fall into the bargain whether you want view or good food. This places is a win win . Good food , perfect balance of spices and an accurate plate size. Their breakfast tacos were so amazing. I expected a little greasy plate but it was not at all. The salsa they serve with the plate was so good that I did order it twice. I could smell and taste the freshness with each and every bite with the fresh breeze from the ocean .
