This restaurant has fantastic views of La Jolla cove. The service was terrible. Our waitress kept forgetting things. My partner and I had lobster rolls. The lobster had so much mayo in it I couldn't taste it. Overall good location, food and service didn't impress.

We were looking for a light and rapid lunch in a beautiful location and this fitted the bill perfectly. My wife and I had a delicious open lobster sandwich washed down with Sauvignon blanco and I also had a cup of chowder which was the best of several consumed in this trip - rightly described by the menu as "epic"....

I went for the first time last month with family from out of town. While the view of La Jolla Cove as great, the odor was atrocious. The community really needs to clean up the area from the sea lions, etc. While the food was good, it wasn't great and definitely not good enough for me to get past the... More

You cannot go wrong here! We were there for dinner which was delicious. Every one of our meals was fresh and well balanced. We had the Famous Coast Toast for dessert and I thought I was going to lose my mind! So light and rich! Just a great all around restaurant.

Booked for lunch today for family of 2 adults and 3 teens, quite rigid on what they'll serve you for lunch, scrambled eggs are ok, omelettes are not. Hostess seemed bored and Server couldn't really be bothered with us, and we kept having to call him over to get more drinks. Brockton villa know they have good food in a... More

World famous level of food and sunset view. Scallops were the best and their salads were good. The coast toast dessert was a great treat. The smell of the ocean is quite strong though.

After scoping out La Jolla, we arrived famished and thirsty. Immediate and friendly service, delectable soup, scallops, and salad awaited us. The flavor and quality of the food and attention to the details of the presentation can't be exceeded. Our outside table overlooked The Cove. Lots to watch and appreciate. A welcome and relaxing end to a busy day in... More

My hubby and I ate breakfast here. We got to sit outside (which is coveted). The food was pretty good. He liked his more than I liked. The french toast was really good! We got that ala carte to try. The staff was really nice and genuinely concerned that all was good.

Nice ambience in a way. The service was a little slow, but friendly. The food was not the best by any means. The smell of sea lion poop from the cove wasn't appetizing, but probably doesn't occur every day. There are better places to eat in La Jolla.
