It was OK. Male host was very rude but the young lady helping him was very nice tho. Our server was great. The view was nice and the food was alright for the price I thought I’d be better but it wasn’t terrible.

This was our second time at Brockton Villa and we were lucky enough to have Maddie (sp?) as our server again. She’s super sweet and welcoming and we will try to request her if we can. The view is epic and the hugest part of why we seek out Brockton Villa. You can get gorgeous photos from the restaurant. The food is delicious- we look forward to going there again to try more of the menu.

Darren and Alex were extremely attentive and entertaining, making recommendations, accommodating changes and just being funny and friendly. The view of the cove was lovely. Loved the shrimp cocktail (spicy not creamy), Korean salmon and the polenta.

The space was too cramped on the balcony. People kept walking by and had to walk sideways to get by our table, very distracting. Also the meal was over-priced, in my opinion. We had two salads and two cocktails for almost $80! Not worth it.

Awesome location and food was good! But ....they dont have a liquor license and try and advertise drinks with some sort of rice spirits that definitely aren't great. That's the only drawback, go for the food but they don't really serve alcohol.

This is our favorite La Jolla spot for brunch when we come to San Diego area from Phoenix! It never disappoints! We brought longtime friends from Arizona this time. Service is friendly and fast, and food and drinks are amazing! Try the Italian Bloody Mariana! It’s got a nice kick to it! And try the Crab Ipanema or Carnitas Chilaquiles! Both are incredibly delicious! Of course, a side of Coast Toast to share is a must no matter what! It makes a yummy brunch dessert! We will ALWAYS come back!

They were doing construction at the bottom of the restaurant so it made it tough to hear. Other than that it was a nice place. Food was tasty! Great view but you do still smell the seals if you are sensitive to smells.

Great restaurant to visit if you're in the area. I had the lump crab omlete which was good, but could have used a little more seasoning. A bit of hot sauce also helped. We had an amazing waiter, who gave us great recommendations for food and other spots to visit in the area. Would definitely come back!

Went during 3-5 small plates/ special drinks menu. Despite our open table reservation they were closing for a private event and wouldn’t honor drink specials. Waitress was not accommodating or helpful.

We previously had brunch at BV and loved it. Thought we would try it for my husband's birthday dinner with friends. The food was inventive, outstanding, and at an excellent and fair price point. Our server was fantastic! We sat inside, but would have preferred the veranda. Will try to book that next time. We will definitely be back!

Very disappointing place. The area where we sat was all the way to the corner where we would only smell sea lions. Nothing to write home about.

This is a great place to have breakfast or lunch. The only real downside is the lack of parking because the La Jolla Cove area is so busy with tourists. Sometimes when the breeze shifts, there's a "bouquet" of seagull/sea-lion smell, but that soon passes. If you can find parking, then this is a great place to visit. You won't be disappointed...
