This was a very good breakfast with friendly service. The only slight drawback was the occasional smell of the sea lions. Recommended. Michael,Nottingham

we found this place purely by chance as we were looking for a parking spot in La Jolla. it was raining heavily (rain? California?, yes!) As we were walking up to the main street we saw the sign and headed upstairs. There is a seating area outside but this was closed off due to the weather. We sat inside while... More

This was right off the coastal pathway and so we decided to eat dinner there. Service was great, loved the traveling waitress, I cannot remember her name but she has travelled quite a bit in her young life. The Mediterranean salad that 3 of us had was good though not extraordinary, the burger was good but it does not come... More

Fantastic atmosphere, location and views. Excellent food; everything I've had on the menu has been great, but the Coast Toast is a must-try. Friendly, professional, quick service at reasonable prices. The only negative is the occasional odor of guano (bird poop) and seals wafting from the cliffs across the street. One of my favorite restaurants.

Wow! What a special dinner! My wife and I sat outside on the veranda and watched the sun set over the ocean. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting. Yes, we did occasionally catch a whiff of the sea lion smell. But that's the price you pay for the location. A restaurant with a view of the freeway... More

What a place to watch a sunset! Can see the seals, watch the sun go down and enjoy excellent food. The pudding was especially delicious!!

A really lovely restaurant to visit in La Jolla. Nobody told us about it we just found it. Great location overlooking the bay with a fine menu, lovely staff - wonderful place for lunch or dinner.

Great food. Salmon BLT is a must try. Smell from the seals is kind of nasty at times but inside is fine. Views are amazing

My boyfriend and I don't have many days off together so when we do we try to have date nights. This week it was my turn to choose where we would go. I chose the Brockton Villa because their menu for SDRW looked delicious! I made a reservation for 8pm and arrived at 7:50. I approached the host stand and... More

We Just went here today for restaurant week as the menu sounded good. We made a reso for 8pm but arrived at 7:50 and told it would be a 20min wait. When we asked why not a 10min (reso is for 8 not 8:10) we were told their resos are for priority not for actually reserving a table....whats the point... More
