Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews

This is a great restaurant with several seating areas, most of which have amazing ocean views. The location is just across a parking lot from the cove so we could hear the seagulls and seals. Waves were crashing. Really nice. The food and service were excellent and the tab was reasonable. The parking is easy and free. If you're in town, make a point to go. If you're a local and haven't been yet, you're missing a gem. Make a reservation, however, if possible.

Service was quick. Food was delicious! The Coast Toast never fails in taste. We always go early on weekends (before 9:30am) and usually get a table within 10 minutes or less. Great views of the cove when seated outside. Inside seating is cozy and cute.

My wife and son and I enjoyed a very quiet dinner on a Tuesday night off season. Great location overlooking the ocean, seals barking out on the rocks. Ryan was very good waiter/host, food was very good, basic and satisfying. Overall enjoyable dinner. Would like to return in summertime, as it was chilly in January.

The view and area are really picturesque! The food and service were great, but I would just advise that the smell of sea lion is a bit strong if sitting at the outside patio. The price you pay I guess to be so close to the water!

Friends since college (now in our 60s) we get together for brunch on New Year's morning to celebrate birthdays. We have tried several locations; Brockton Villa was one of the best, providing outstanding value, comfort, and very good service on a busy morning. It was chilly this year, but the nook in the back was perfect for our party of six (it could comfortably seat eight) and we could easily hear each other and be our own little party. The food, as usual, was very good although the eggs were a little dry (I had a scramble; my friend had an omelet); the rest of our party enjoy various pancakes. The location and view are great and we can walk from La Jolla Cove to the Children's Pool afterwards. We recommend the public parking just around the corner below the Crab Catcher; it's worth the price.

My son and I went to Brockton Villa for New Years Eve (but I had been there once before for lunch). There was a 3 course dinner for $55 and all 3 courses were excellent! The service was fantastic. It was rainy, so there was no view that night but normally you can see Seal Cove from the balcony area and hear them as well!

Nice little place, great history, and views. Was cold and wet when we went, but can imagine sitting in this place on a nice warm sunny day. Only downfall not Bloody Mary's served before 11 am due to zoning law :-(

Can't say enough about how much I love this place. Fun. Great food. Great people. Great view especially on warmer days. Want them to bring back the pomegranate mimosa😄 but their spicy Bloody Mary is the bomb. Love love love

If you want breakfast with a view you'd be hard pressed to find a better one in La Jolla. Right on the waterline, you'd never know it was a restaurant and not a private home.
Our waiter Sean was very perky and friendly. We made the mistake however of ordering the combo with coast toast. I asked if I could have the eggs any way as an omelette and they said I'd have to order an omelette separately so we got scrambled. So just plain scrambled eggs and potatoes was very boring compared to all the other yummy dishes we were seeing coming out. The coast toast was good, very good!
Skip the combo and go for the toast!

Been bragging to friends about the coast toast. Came from out of town just for it. It was served WAY undercooked - like raw dough. To the point the waiter even noticed and said wow that doesn't look right. He asked if he could replace it in a to go order. If they can't make it so it is good when served immediately why would I want a cold soggier version later when I'm hungry now? We said no thank you. He brought it anyway and we said no and sent it back. We still were charged full price ($120) when half of our group had to stop somewhere else to eat after leaving. Will never go back. Very disappointed.

We had breakfast there overlooking the La Jolla Cove. A beautiful view and the sounds of the birds and the sea lions in the Cove. Not something I would ever find at home and the food and service was excellent. I would definitely revisit this restaurant when back in San Diego!

I live in Oregon and come to SD about every 3 months. Every time I come here I have to go to BV for breakfast. I have never had food that wasn't delicious. BVs breakfast is something everyone should go out of their way to do!

Absolutely lovely evening on their patio; seals and ocean waves in the background. The service was gracious and professional. The ambience was perfect for conversation. The restaurant has a wonderful energy. Ryan was our waiter and he made the evening JOY.
