Brockton Villa's location is perfect - right by the ocean. The food was excellent (especially the oysters) and our server, Miguel was excellent. Highly recommended!

This is one of our favorite breakfast places. It never disappoints. We love the coast toast, obviously, but the little things like great coffee and prompt service are so nice. We also ordered the chillaquilles, which are SO good here. And their kids menu is wonderful!

The construction surrounding the restaurant didn’t hinder us at all, even though I thought it might. No problems!

We got to the restaurant 10 mins before the reservation. The host was flustered and said we’ll have to wait until our exact reservation since it was super busy. Which it was not, as we walked around a little there were about 20 free tables. 15 minutes passed and we still had not been seated, the host came by again and mentioned it’s super hectic since a table of 25 just cancelled (we were a table of 3). I have learnt that you don’t have to bother customers with your own troubles, just fix it. I’m not interested in what you have to do to get us table when we’ve already been standing around. In addition, we went inside the restaurant and were told to move to the front as there was no waiting area. We were eventually seated on the outside patio, which was pretty chilly from the sea breeze. So we asked to move inside (which took about 45 mins, and yes there were still about 15 free tables). The food was good. The waiter was good apart from the fact that he added 2 bottles of wine to our bill, which we did not order. He was also a little too pushy with recommending dishes.

Fantastic location, good food, reasonable value. Server and Hostess were very professional and accommodating. My negative was the front end Manager. She created a very negative first impression and was very rude to the hostess and guests, so much so that we considered leaving. Ironically, I overheard her telling the Hostess how guest impression was very important. Maybe she was having a bad day, but I feel sorry for anyone that has to report to her.

Everything was terrific! Brockton Villa is one of my favorite places in La Jolla, and Jonelle is a great manager.

We were visiting the area over Valentine's Day and decided to have a nice dinner with a view. We settled on Brockton Villa and are so happy we did. The prix fixe menu was to die for and such a great value. We were dining with our 6-month-old baby and they were more than accommodating. Our server was so friendly, and expedited our order so that we could get through dinner before the little guy's bedtime. Our table on the patio overlooking the ocean was just perfect. A wonderful experience from start to finish!

Reunion parking is a problem and open table should note that you need to find parking. The restaurant should have valet

Our waiter could have used more smiles. Service was ok in general.
