Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love visiting this place when I’m in San Diego.
The only thing that made this experience less than perfect is that a table of ladies was sat next to my husband and I and one lady didn’t stop talking the ENTIRE duration of our brunch. We couldn’t have a quiet, romantic brunch like we were hoping for because of how loud she was. Maybe bigger parties need to be sat far away from couples so as not to ruin someone’s quiet and serene experience.
Other than that, it was lovely and I will definitely be back again.
My boyfriend, friend, and I dined here for San Diego Restaurant Week. We all enjoyed our meals. I recommend the clam chowder and cioppino. One thing you should know before dining there is that the restaurant is located right in front of the cove and the smell can be a bit overwhelming if you are dining outdoors.
Although the Restaurant Week salmon dish was sold out when we came, I enjoyed the sea bass special & my husband enjoyed his cioppino dinner. Good food at a good price for restaurant week! The view at Brockton is always amazing! And of course, don’t forget their signature Coast Toast dessert. Great evening.
Went here for my birthday dinner and since it landed on opening day of restaurant week we took advantage of that menu. I highly enjoyed the options for restaurant week and it was priced just right. The view in itself speaks volumes and if you can take the smell of sea lions then it's all the way worth it.
Outstanding view. Historic building with available seating under the "front porch". We had lunch outdoors and enjoyed the weather and complete view of La Jolla Cove. Lovely indoor fireplace decorated with abalone shells. The best part of all was our waiter(Darren). He was friendly and attentive making sure we were well cared for! The swordfish was excellent.
Went here for Sunday Brunch. On this particular day the sea-breeze was particularly "fishy" so we decided to sit inside, where the breeze is barely noticeable. Outside it would have been a challenge. We had the Cove brunch which is 2 eggs, potatoes, toast and sausage/bacon. Very tasty. A great experience but be sure to book a table ahead of time.
This could be a good place to eat but I had just one major problem with it, and it isn't really the restaurant's fault. There is a foul stench that comes from the cove across the street due to bird and sea lion guano. This makes it really difficult to enjoy any culinary experience. I wish I had been warned before we made plans to eat here. Google it if you don't believe me. Hopefully the city will come up with a solution to the problem.
The outdoor patio is great-- BUT be warned. They have a lot of bees. A lot. So we asked to move inside. The service was gracious and accommodating. Don't miss the chance to walk among the sea lions after you dine. We loved the pancakes and french toast. The breakfast tacos were great. Chiliquiles could have been skipped. Affordable and charming with a great location. PLAN TO NEED LOTS OF TIME to find parking and/or to walk from the spot you find which may be 10min away.
