Amazing spot!Amazing spot for a special occasion! We went for our anniversary and sat outside on the patio. Food was exceptional as well as the ambiance. Definitely will return!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMViewPerfect place to have great food and enjoy the ocean view.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTastey ocean view diningBrockton Villa offers breakfast, lunch and dinner overlooking La Jolla Cove. The food is healthful and interesting. The view can't be beat. Unfortunately, the odor from the birds on the rocks detracts somewhat from the ambience. Service is wonderful!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOn a recent trip to La Jolla,On a recent trip to La Jolla, we ate at George's at the Cove, Cody's, La Valencia Terrace, The Cottage and Brockton Villa. In my opinion, BV was the best of the bunch, which is saying a lot because we enjoyed all the restaurants listed above. Our server was attentive but not overbearing, the food was well priced and delicious and we had a great seat along the rail overlooking the ocean.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatI've been a regular patron of The Brockton Villa for several years now. It's always a fantastic time. Prices are not that bad, and my only issue with the food is that the appetizer was a rather small portion (though was extremely delicious).
Ambience is always fantastic here, though it was a little cold when we went.You also need to be able to get used to the smell of the ocean. It's right next to seal beach, so if you can't stomach that strong fish smell, I would suggest sitting inside. They don't have a lot of room available on the balcony, but it would benefit the customer to have heat lamps out there.
I can't wait for the next special occasion for my gf and I to go back. Love this place.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we visit the San DiegoWhen we visit the San Diego area, Brockton Villa is at the top of our "must eat" list. Delicious, beautifully presented food, in an historic building with a fabulous view. Wonderful service too!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimeReally a great view. The food was excellent. Service was attentive and prompt. I would highly recommend for breakfast, brunch, or a late lunch. I would definitely go again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat's not to like?A beautiful view of the ocean; paddle boarders, kayakers, scuba divers, swimmers; pelicans, seals, cormorants, sea gulls; prompt, attentive service; GREAT food.
What's not to like?5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI am still dreaming of theI am still dreaming of the "Coast Toast" I had for breakfast! Good food, pretty spot -- what more could you ask for?4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Really good food, and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Nice ocean view and a short walk from our hotel. I would come again when I'm in town next time.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's hard to order anythingIt's hard to order anything but Coast Toast when you come here for breakfast/brunch. It is the best french toast in the world. The coffee is great and the service is attentive. A table for two on the balcony is scenic and relaxing, with a full spectrum of swimmers, divers, paddlers, cormorants, pelicans, seals and people gawking at the beautiful cove. I hate to be too complimentary, as I'd love to save the place for locals, but I think the word is out. Be sure to make a reservation, unless you enjoy standing in line.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat local findThe food was great, but a little too hot. I had to let it cool down a LOT. The service was phenomenal! My waitress was wonderful. If I come back to the area, I will absolutely come here again.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fresh and delicious.The food was fresh and delicious. My kids loved it and we loved the fact that the kids menu had some healthy options and when we requested the house salad to be mixed greens (instead of iceberg) for the kids, our waitress didn't hesitate on serving that!! Great service and very cold beer!!

We had a great time!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI tell everyone this is theI tell everyone this is the only restaurant to go to in San Diego if you can choose just one.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, fresh,Food was excellent, fresh, quick, better to eat onside because the sea lions smell pretty bad. But if you eat inside, its excellent.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMwe have enjoyed Brockton Villawe have enjoyed Brockton Villa in the past and did again this time but for one thing- the smell! we had planned on sitting on the veranda to enjoy both the view and the ambiance of the coastal location but were unable to do so because of the overpowering stench from the bird and sea lion stained cliffs below the restaurant. the restaurant has no control over that I realize but La Jolla needs to do something, we won't be back until that is resolved. And, that disturbs us because it is one of our favorite La Jolla destinations.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI really love Brockton Villa.I really love Brockton Villa. The food is very good and we always have wonderful service. The view is amazing to say the least!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI ate here for the first timeI ate here for the first time ever with my Grandmother who was visiting from NY and loved it. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and didn't have any trouble finding parking. We had to wait a bit before we were noticed when we got seated, but overall the food was delicious and the waiters and waitresses were very friendly and polite. The crab cakes were incredible (I could have eaten 3 plates of them) and the Italian salad was larger than I thought it would be, so it ended up being the perfect thing to share. The prices are very reasonable for being right on the coast in La Jolla, too. My Grandmother raved about how she loved her experience and I'm definitely coming back here again.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service is prompt andThe service is prompt and the food tasty. The view of La Jolla Cove is breathtaking. They do seem a bit stingy with the toast, jam and butter.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Is amazing. Had theFood Is amazing. Had the jordiri chicken so good.
