Brockton Villa is a beautiful historic home converted into a restaurant located directly across from the ocean. Our seaside location offers a spectacular view of the world-famous La Jolla Cove, and has become a favorite "show off" spot for locals and visitors alike. We are known for our breakfasts, including our famous Coast Toast. Our chef creates many other wonderful dishes seasonally for lunch and our dinner service.

Our house is the perfect place for you to host your next party. Whether it be a wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, baptism, bridal shower, baby shower, or any special occasion.

Brockton Villa loves families! Please don't forget to include your little ones in your reservation count!

Food and service was excelent! I would suggest to include, on line, a feature to reserve a specific table - not only "open table". After our arrival I requested the table at the fireplace. We were informed it was reserved, however the guests never showed up. Also I would suggest the cleanning task to begin after customers departure. If the place closes at 9PM - cleaning up should begin after 9PM, not while we are eating. Overall, as a visitor from Washington DC, we enjoyed our visit to Brockton. Thank you

The view is spectacular! I love the food and the staff is exceptional except our waiter who had a terrible attitude and was very unpleasant. We hope to try this restaurant again, but we will not allow Ryan to wait on us again. With the amazing water view and the really good food it stinks to have a waiter who has no table side manner. I hope to have a better experience next time.

It may be the point in time - there is a lot of construction ongoing, the view was not pleasant, noise was unacceptable. Perhaps the restaurant can not be held responsible for this but this is part of the appeal. The food was good (not great), service was reasonable, but the ambiance that I expected based on the reviews and information was lacking. I had guests from Chicago and hoped they would have had a better experience.

I took my husband here for brunch on his 60th birthday. We set in the patio area...great view! The food was very good as well. Loved my dirty chai and mushroom, asparagus omelette. Tom had one of the restaurant favs and he enjoyed it very much. It was the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict, it has another name. We were very pleased. It was a Sunday and we made a reservation. They seated us promptly.

I was pleasantly surprised at how great the food was, good wine pairing and great service. Especially for the price. We are locals and never go here so it will now go in the rotation for frequent dinners! No smell from the beach either, thou gh we sat inside...

Location is great on La Jolla cove with amazing views. Plenty of outdoor seating, perfect for the summer. Food was great, very fresh and flavorful. Parking can be tricky but there is a nearby garage and they do validate.

Great ocean view with casual dining and pretty good food. The salmonBLT was really good and fresh. Tacos were good. ‘Epic’ chowder was ok only. Creme Brûlée ( pistachio and pomegranate) very good.

Whenever we are in San Diego, we visit Brockton Villa at least once. We ordered from the San Diego Restaurant Week lunch menu and it did not disappoint. No meal is complete at Brockton without their famous Coast Toast—absolutely delicious!

Service was pretty slow. Our order was messed up, but the service was good enough and brought us extra bacon that was supposed to be in the omelette. The coast toast may be my favorite french toast ever. I've had it multiple times now, and it never disappoints.

Glad we had a reservation. This place was packed.

What is this obsession in the US with potatoes the whole time. Why is the bacon so limp and dreary also? However the view was a joy. So were the nice staff. Chef needs some French cooking tuition

Great table on the deck for viewing the killer sunset and hearing the seals in the distant background. Restaurant week menu with wine pairings allowed fine sampling of menu and wines. The salmon wirh coconut rice and the filet mignon were both prepared perfectly and tasted delicious...ate every morsel! Staff were friendly, accommodating and quite delightful. We will be back again.
