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.

Great location next to the ocean. You can hear the sea lions in the background! On certain days (we were there on a Mon.) they had a price fixe menu which was very good. It's a smaller menu, but some good choices.

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.

My boyfriend, friend, and I dined here for San Diego Restaurant Week. We all enjoyed our meals. I recommend the clam chowder and cioppino. One thing you should know before dining there is that the restaurant is located right in front of the cove and the smell can be a bit overwhelming if you are dining outdoors.

Although the Restaurant Week salmon dish was sold out when we came, I enjoyed the sea bass special & my husband enjoyed his cioppino dinner. Good food at a good price for restaurant week! The view at Brockton is always amazing! And of course, don’t forget their signature Coast Toast dessert. Great evening.

Went here for my birthday dinner and since it landed on opening day of restaurant week we took advantage of that menu. I highly enjoyed the options for restaurant week and it was priced just right. The view in itself speaks volumes and if you can take the smell of sea lions then it's all the way worth it.

Outstanding view. Historic building with available seating under the "front porch". We had lunch outdoors and enjoyed the weather and complete view of La Jolla Cove. Lovely indoor fireplace decorated with abalone shells. The best part of all was our waiter(Darren). He was friendly and attentive making sure we were well cared for! The swordfish was excellent.
