The food was divine, the service was great and the place is well located in La Jolla Cove - next to a colony of sea lions and cormorans. You can't ask for more.

Excellent location overlooking the beach and La Jolla Cove (in La Jolla Village). Very nice menu and wine selection. Friendly and casual atmosphere. Great sunset views. Parking can be difficult to find in the evenings, especially around sunset due to the beach / park traffic (no valet parking).

We appreciated the patience of the staff as we waited for one member of our group to find a parking spot on a Sunday early afternoon. We were seated in the outdoor patio and could enjoy a fine view of LaJolla Cove, complete with sea lions and cormorants. Pleasant wait staff. Our lunches were fine. The lobster roll was on... More

We visited La Jolla Cove this weekend and sought out a local for a recommendation on where to eat overlooking the Cove. Brockton Villa was his suggestion. He said it was famous around La Jolla and that we would not be disappointed. Well, he was definitely right! We found the restaurant right across the street from the Cove. We put... More

So glad we took the suggestion to come here! We're not local to SD (or to the west coast for that matter) and wanted a nice spot by the water to have dinner, and we got it! If you plan on having an early dinner, make an early reservation - when booking at 3, 8:30 was their earliest available time.... More

Had a business lunch here and it was fabulous. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is California laid back with matching decor. I would have given 5 stars, however the parking situation was a nightmare. The views made up for it! Sweeping coastline views with seals laying on the rocks.

The food was great in front of the ocean. I would have given it a 5 star but when we went to reserve our sits the receptionist ask us to wait for few minutes and those minutes turn to a 1/2 an hour because she actually forgot about us and the sad part it wasn't busy but we just shook... More

We went here for an early morning breakfast before checking out the seals/sea lions. Everyone in our party loved what they had Coast (french) Toast was amazing! The view is incredible, looking out over the coast- you can hear the barking!

Our breakfast was very good. We were given a table on the patio that had an amazing view of the Cove. They recommended Coast Toast and it was a winner. Wait staff excellent but we met the general manager and he was extremely friendly, helpful and attentive to our group. Couldn't have a better setting than this restaurant.

Thank Susanlynn53
