Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews
We were looking for a place to show off the California coast to my wife's niece and boyfriend and Brockton Villa was a great choice for that. One side of the table had a great view of the coastline jutting out north of La Jolla and the other had a great view of a rocky cove just across the road. the villa sits high above the road so both views were unobstructed. Be aware that parking is very challenging. There is a parking garage on Coast just as you go down the hill but before you know where Brockton Villa is. Miss that and it's unlikely to find a spot for a very long way till you get back up onto Prospect where you are not allowed to uturn back where you came. Around the block, by this time you are quite a ways away and when you get back on Prospect the two public Valet parking spots are both on the other side of the road. That said it is well worth the effort. The food was excellent, my wife had Salmon and I had Sea Bass and they were both very good. They do not have a full bar, only beer and wine, but they make cocktails from something called bourbon that is wine based. I didn't try that. I did have a very nice and affordable Cab. The only glitch in the service was they served 3 of the four dinners and left me sitting till I raised a small fuss (about 5 minutes of waiting for someone to notice). They recovered well once I spoke up and the server (not the same as the waiter) apologized. All in all a very nice place that I would go back to.
We enjoyed the beautiful Brockton Villa location overlooking the ocean during sunset. Our dinners were all above average (my filet mignon was great!) The service was efficient, accommodating and friendly. All the staff we encountered during our visit were very nice. What a wonderful way to end our beautiful Southern California vacation!
Someone named Rachel called a day in advance to tell me about the difficulty we would face parking and climbing down the hillside. As i had never been to the restaurant before and was taking elderly family, Tacel suggested we Uber and take an elevator from the street. It worked perfectly. Great food and service. Really amazing care!
The location of the restaurant is perfect for relaxing and gazing at the water. It is slightly protected from the wind so you do not get any of the breeze and although it was a little chilly outside once we sat down we felt the heat of the propane heaters which was fantastic. The service was excellent and the special omelettes were interesting and delicious. We had out of state friends with us and they were delighted at this place. It gets busy so I would recommend a reservation but definitely worth the wait if you are just passing by.
A friend recommended this place and since I had a birthday and someone in from out of town, decided to try it. Food and ambiance/view were great and service was good. One tiny bathroom - not so good. Also there is absolutely no parking and no valet. Dropped my friend off and parked 10 minutes away. I would go back but at least I know the drawbacks now.
Amazing location at La Jolla cove. Food was good and service excellent. Celebrated a birthday brunch with friends midweek. It was a beautiful day and we had a table overlooking the cove.
I really appreciated our server who was not in a hurry to chase us out once we had finished eating.
Little cold with no offer from staff to do things to warm things up or move us to warmer area
Overlooking ocean wonderful but aroma of bird p**p was distracting at the least
Bathrooms sub par
Drinks were not what was suggested
(No ' liquor' license?)
We had a good dinner at Brockton Villa, except for the unusually long wait time for our main meal,which was really good(salmon and rice)close to an hour after receiving our appetizer,it would have been nice to hear from the staff regarding the kitchen is running behind schedule, it would make it more bearable,,,,,The creme Brulee is short of being an empty plate with glazed sugar on top,it consisted of maybe a three inch plate with a huge glob of whipped cream more than anything else, and about no thicker than a pencil worth of creme burlee....
It felt as if was having to scrape the plate just to get a bite,, I gave up half way through it..
Overall our experience was ok. The hostesses were great. Our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable , however he was not attentive enough. Meal was ok. The cinnamon roll pancakes and the regular pancakes were very good. The angus burger was also very good. Especially the pretzel bun. The BBQ Pork sandwich was ok. Not what I expected it to be. The omelette of the day was not very good. Cheese was only on one side of the omelette. The view is great.
This place was highly recommended by a friend but my date and I were not impressed. The food was good but not great, the location was nice but the tables were cramped and the waiter who served our table was more interested in gossiping with his coworker than he was in serving our table.
The restaurant was plenty busy, so maybe our experience was not typical, but we would not recommend it to any of our friends.
One other thing we thought was strange the restaurant has brunch menus and the table were adorned with delicious sounding brunch time adult beverages, but when we tried to order one our server informed us that he could not serve adult beverages until after 11:00AM, If that had been clearly stated on the website when I booked the reservation I would have booked a later time slot.
Loved almost everything. Great place. Wonderful Food. Beautiful outdoor seating. Attentive service. We were 6 girlfriends all turning 60 out for brunch.
We were sad to here we couldn't order a cocktail until 11:00am. We arrived at 10:00am.
Also the bathroom was so dirty we felt like we were at a gas station restroom.
One of the best locations in La Jolla, parking is a challenge unless you valet up on Prospect and walk down. But not over priced & food is really good. Reservations are a good idea,. I highly recomend sitting out on the patio..they do have heaters if it's chilly out. Great for casual dining or special occasions.
