Brockton Villa Ratings and Reviews
I've only eaten breakfast here in the past, but dinner was really delicious. They have a special 3 courses for $30 menu on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday night, and it was a deal. The server was friendly and helpful, we sat on the outdoor "balcony" right off the main dining room and could hear the seals barking and the waves breaking while we ate. Lovely all around!
Amazing table on porch. Food was excellent. Service not so much. Slow. No refill on the coffee - did not check in after we got our food. Despite the service- the location overcomes it. I also love that it is an old cottage built in 1894 with amazing views of the cove.
Shortly after moving to San Diego 2 years ago, my husband and I tried Brockton after walking by it several times. It is now our go-to when we have guests in town and bring them to La Jolla. We've always had great service, the food is good and there is something for everyone, and the view is amazing. I would recommend Brockton Villa!
We came to Brockton Villa to celebrate a birthday and had a very nice experience. We traveled about an hour to La Jolla and wanted a great view of the ocean. Brockton had beautiful patio seating as well as indoor seating. Inside was decorated lovely and was all very clean. We had a delicious meal, enjoying the good coffee, soup, fresh halibut dinners, pasta dinner, and children's meals. Everything was delicious! We topped it off with a huge banana split to share with our group. We will be back soon and come for Sunday brunch.
There's some real interesting fare on the menu that will be sure to spice up any experience - I tried the Coastal Toast, which was fine (I wouldn't say exceptional), while two of my family enjoyed the magical cinnamon roll pancakes, which were simply outstanding (and I believe the best entree on the menu for breakfast), while my youngest enjoyed the chocolate chip pancakes which were nothing short of fantastic. Our server was lackluster (at best), as a result of being spread thin working the patio as well as the FOH patio area we dined at, but I saw other waiters who were exceptional (and who on a few occasions jumped in to help our floundering waiter). You come here for the views though, more than anything, and these don't disappoint. The young and perky host was a great welcome to the place that delivered on the food, at a value that didn't disappoint with a long-lasting memorable view.
Decent food, over priced. Everyone there was nice but food was just decent.
Also, we were seated at 10AM and I wasn't "allowed" to order a mimosa until 11AM which is really lame... I'm on vacation and I can't even order a mimosa with my breakfast?? How are you going to turn down business like that? Very strange.
Brockton Villa is one of our favorite breakfast spots. The location/views are spectacular and they have the best eggs Benedict we have found in San Diego. Their signature coast toast is amazing as well! The only thing we wish they had would be the option to have a mimosa with breakfast for the special occasions.
We went to celebrate our anniversary, charming place, been there for pretty good brunch in the past.
As far as dinner, the daily special, blackened scallops, they were cooked yet lacked sear, the blackening spice mix seamed to be smeared on the cooked scallops. Flavor was reasonable, definitely not special. My wife had the steamed mussels that were quite nice. For entree my wife had the cioppino which was decent while I ordered the filet mignon asking for rare, cold in the middle. The steak arrived at what I consider well done or rather way overcooked stage. Upon sending it back the waiter followed by the manager explained that per orders by the owners the meat has to be at least at 120F. I can understand such restriction with a hamburger that is not ground to order, yet fillet mignon???? I wonder about the quality of the purchased meat. The replacement course of salmon was boring. Will not be back. Shame, the place has a great location and view. Very disappointing culinary experience.
This is a very nice, historic building with an awesome ocean view. My wife and I went for brunch and the food was delicious. The waiter was really nice and kept checking on us. It was our anniversary and my wife's birthday so the waiter brought us a nice treat, on the house. It was an overall nice way to spend our mid-morning. Great food, great location and it was affordable. Highly recommend it.
I absolutely love visiting this place when I’m in San Diego.
The only thing that made this experience less than perfect is that a table of ladies was sat next to my husband and I and one lady didn’t stop talking the ENTIRE duration of our brunch. We couldn’t have a quiet, romantic brunch like we were hoping for because of how loud she was. Maybe bigger parties need to be sat far away from couples so as not to ruin someone’s quiet and serene experience.
Other than that, it was lovely and I will definitely be back again.
