Have Your Party At Our House!

The Brockton Villa is a charming La Jolla beach cottage, circa 1894, which was converted into a restaurant in 1990. Our seaside location offers a spectacular view of the world-famous La Jolla Cove, and has become a favorite “show off” spot for locals and visitors alike.

Due to popular demand, we have expanded our repertoire to include private parties. Our “house” is small and inviting and we have basically maintained the original floor plan, with a “mud room,” dining room and wrap-around veranda. We did relocate the entrance to the north side of the property and we added an outdoor patio area there as well. Because of our historic designation, spatial limitations, and the fact that we reside in a partially residential area, we do not have a bar or formal reception area.

We do offer a beautiful setting and a quiet atmosphere for special occasions. Knowing one of your reasons for choosing Brockton Villa is our wonderful location, we will accommodate your party with the best possible view and seating area. The management is at your service to assist in your event planning.

We hope you will appreciate the unique qualities Brockton Villa Restaurant has to offer, and we thank you in advanced for considering us for your gathering.

Group Sizes

Over the years, we have developed a variety of options that make us confident that your party at Brockton Villa will be a success. We are able to cater to a maximum group of 135. We have also worked hard to develop our regular clientele, so we may keep part of the restaurant open for them. However, exclusive use of the restaurant is an option!

Please contact our in-house event coordinator, Joanelle at (bus.)858-454-7393, (cell)858-945-4727, or email for parties of 10 or more.

Party Rooms

Brockton Villa Restaurant offers several separate dining areas for private parties.

West Veranda

The West Veranda is a covered porch with clear plastic curtains that are raised or lowered depending on the weather. There is a spectacular view of the La Jolla Cove, and a great sunset vantage point during the evening. The tables on the veranda can be moved together to seat up to 17 guests. Although there are bound to be other customers at the small tables along the narrower, North Veranda, a gathering on the West Veranda has a private feel. The entire Veranda makes a great stand-up cocktail setting as well.

Inside Dining Room

The Inside Dining Room features a large abalone-inlaid (gas) fireplace, which was added to the Brockton Villa around the 1920′s. The tables inside are light wood, with comfortable padded chairs and oceanic blue and grey bench seating. The tables in the room can be reconfigured in several different formats. There is an ocean view (until the sun goes down!) and the atmosphere is cozy and inviting for a group of up to 45 people.

The Outside Patio

The Outside Patio offers a spectacular open-air setting. There are tables, shaded by umbrellas and an old pepper tree, which is lit at night by white party lights. The Outdoor Patio area is also the entrance to the restaurant, so privacy is limited unless your party is using the Brockton Villa Restaurant exclusively. The upper patio is available for private reservation by itself, and can accommodate up to 25 guests.


Following the links above, you can find our suggested Party Menus. We prepare all our food and desserts fresh and from scratch. We are happy to work with you on special requests. Due to space and storage limitations, we do require plated dinner entrée counts at least 7 working days prior to your function. We ask that you do not bring outside food or beverages into the restaurant, unless pre arranged. Since there is no bar area at the Brockton Villa, we primarily host sit-down meals. However, the veranda makes a lovely “cocktail” reception area prior to sitting down (pm only). The West Veranda and the Inside Dining Room may be combined to accommodate a larger group for a plated dinner or buffet.

Wine, Beer and Cocktails

We are proud of our selections of small-production wineries, and micro-brewed bottled beer. We also feature French Bubbly, and the very popular selection of “Brocktails.”

Coffee Bar

We feature an extensive non-alcoholic beverage menu. San Diego’s own Café Moto freshly roasts our coffee.

Beaumont’s Neighborhood Eatery

Our “sister” restaurant is also available for parties. Beaumont’s is located in the heart of Bird Rock, about 5 miles south of the Brockton Villa. Beaumont’s offers a full bar and live music options.


You are welcome to decorate your tables and bring in floral arrangements but please no tape, nails or pushpins. We use white linens for all private parties, ocean themed centerpieces are provided, and luminaries are added in the evening. Tablecloths or napkins in the color of your choice may be available for a separate charge.  


There is street parking along Coast Blvd., including in front of the restaurant. There is also a public parking lot at the top of Coast Blvd., which is a reliable option and a very short walk to Brockton Villa. The La Jolla Cove area is a very popular destination and parking can be challenging. Please allow additional travel time for parking, so your party starts on time!

Other Notes

We are smoke-free.

We look forward to making your special occasion memorable!
