Good food, good service and somewhat reasonable prices (for La Jolla). ...and unless you're inside a beautiful ocean view. The only down side is the lack of parking. ...and sometimes the bird/seal smell when the wind blows your way... but that's part of the ambiance.

Hi I love the Brockton Villa its the best view in Sothern Cali! I bring all my guest from out of town its so fun! My honest opinion from yesterday's lunch the food was overall very good the waiter was ok, the bathrooms were very dirty. Everyone was doing the best they can; hostesses were wonderful. My friend has food restrictions and was told very curtly no Substitutes weird... Also missing that delicious bowl you used to have and a few more veggie choices.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and service was just mediocre even though I left him a 17% tip BUT the food and view were excellent. We had the egg bowls but would try the Coast toast next visit. The Bloody Mary’s were exceptional!

We ate with a group of six and were seated on a beautiful veranda overlooking the water. Food was fantastic, perfect for sharing and they had fun unique cocktails. I would definitely go back.

It was great to enjoy brunch close to the ocean; however, we were outside up against the wall, right behind the door and it was FREEZING!!! There was no heater available in that spot so it put a damper on the whole experience.

But the food and the service was great!

Adorable spot, right on the water. Great menu for a light snack or a full meal. Only downside: they only serve beer and wine BUT it’s the perfect spot for a glass of wine and bite as the sun sets over seal harbor.

I have lived in San Diego for about 25 years, and this was the first visit to the Brockton Villa. We went for lunch on a Wednesday. Our server was OK, but was nothing special and was certainly no help when asked if there was something vegetarian that could be done that wasn't on the menu. Which leads to...the lunch menu is a disaster for a vegetarian if you want something other than a salad or quinoa. The salad (good size, not huge) was $15 and mediocre. My friend also believed the experience was underwhelming. The breakfast/brunch menu looked good, and it's a beautiful location. Be aware there is a flight of stairs and no elevator.

Went to Brockton Villa for a Galentine's Brunch this weekend. We ran into massive delays trying to get to BV because... La Jolla on a Sunday. I called BV to let them know that we were going to be delayed (like 20 minutes behind) and the hostess couldn't have been more understanding. She said not to worry and that they'd be holding our table and then told us to drive safely. So many places would be cancelling your reservation at that point, but they were super understanding.

Since our reservation was at 3pm, they were only serving their limited menu, but it still included some fantastic options! We definitely ordered the coast toast for the table as well as multiple carafes of mimosas with the chili mango juice.

The ambiance is always on point with great views of the water and such a cute and homey decor inside. HUGE fan of this place - will be back many more times.

A late lunch on Valentines Day perched on the historic deck over looking La Jolla Cove couldn’t have been better! A BLT with a crisp salad with sherry vinaigrette, and a Mediterranean chopped salad bursting with artichoke hearts hit the spot. The weather cooperated with porcelaine blue sky , sparkling surf with bright red kayaks bobbing on the water, and cooperative pelicans swooping in our line of sight...was...well perfect!
Good service, and we will do it again!
