La comida decepcionante
Great food Special wines
A hidden gem. Great ambiance, small setting, elegant. Higher priced but unusual offerings, and I think they live up to it without going overboard.
A memorable Valentine's Day celebration. Upon arrival, my husband and I were served glasses of champagne while our table was being prepared. For the first course, he had ceviche while I indulged in the duck confit. The surf and turf was excellent as was the pairing of wines. Great service!
Always love our meals at this restaurant. Our favorite in the St Augustine area.
We went for Valentine Dinner on Saturday night. The first time we have been to this restaurant. We drove from Deland Florida and could not ask for anything any better. Everything was what you would expect in fine dining. We eat out a lot and would put La Cocina International Restaurant up as one of the top Restaurants. We will be back soon.
Thank you for a great evening out.

Very attentive staff and the meals we chose were fabulous. The presentation was first class and the food was delicious.
As usual, everything was amazing and beautifully presented. We had the most wonderful evening.
We have dined at La Covina for many years and never had a bad meal. The presentation of all their meals are beyond professional and delicious. Service is always impeccable!
A perfect evening to celebrate our anniversary. Warm, friendly staff. Food was outstanding from start to end. A special dessert was sent to our table in celebration of our special night. The very best food in St. Augustine.
The food, service and quality of cuisine was superb. Our waitress Katiya was friendly and attentive. The crab stuff grouper and Mediterranean salad were delicious. When I return to St Augustine beach we will definitely make a point to return. Thank you again.
This was our first time at this restaurant that is located in a quaint hotel and we were not disappointed. And Innovative menu, good choices for gluten-free, seafood and land items, all courses were great. The Ceviche was excellent, mussels great, all salads chilled and delicious. Salmon, filet and grouper were selected. All were great selections. Dessert was a hit too. Very much recommend!
One draw back only, beer and wine served, no mixed drinks.
Great food and service
Decided to go here because it was in our hotel and we just got off of a six hour drive. Glad we did. Staff was excellent. Our waiter was Jorge. Very good. We had the escargot. Delicious. My wife wanted to drink the butter it was cooked in! Entrees were the Wild Boar Oso Buco and Seafood Linguini, spice level 6. Both dishes were good, but I think we both liked the seafood better. We would definitely go back again.
The food and service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive and we were placed at a table against the wall as we had requested in our reservation. Overall, we had a wonderful experience.
As always, a consistently great dinner with great service!
Nice location in a hotel outside St.Augustine. The menu had a number of interesting items, and everything ordered by our table of 4 was very well done. Butternut squash soup with Romanescu was a big hit. Service was extremely attentive and polite. Worth a return.
Service and food and wine were top notch
Excellent food and service every visit. We dine here once a month. Quiet and romantic setting.
The beef and mushroom dish was outstanding. Will definitely comeback.
Definitely one of the best fine dining restaurants in all of St Johns County. Thursday night dining is particularly special in that one can bring their own particular bottle of wine to drink with your meal without a corkage fee. George and his fine staff always take good care of us and for that we make it a point to dine there quite often.
Always outstanding! Jorge and the rest of the waitstaff are great!
Excellent food and service
Fabulous food, wonderful service, and each plate was presented beautifully. This, without a doubt, is European dining at its very finest and our server Gina just made the entire experience spectacular.
This is a 5 star restaurant!!!! We love everything about LaCocina!! George is our favorite waiter & treats us like family! The food is outstanding!!! Always the best meats & seafood! Every dish is made with great craftsmanship & quality! You can not go wrong with any dish you get here! Their Lobster Bisque Soup is to die for!!! The best we have ever had anywhere!!!! Give yourself the gift of a superior meal!!!!
One of many choices that I had for the evening to celebrate my ladies birthday and it was an amazing choice
Great service, would go back every tomorrow!
Muy buena la ambientación, excelente el servicio de mesa y muy deliciosa la comida, una gran combinación de sabores.
We have been there many times and it has been awesome. I got the filet mignon. It was tough and stringy. Not a goos cut of meat. My husband commented that it didn’t look like a filet mignon. I’ve had it here before and it was excellent.
This restaurant was in our hotel and was absolutely perfect. We had Breakfast two days and one dinner. The breakfast and dinner were very affordable and wonderful meals. Would like to thank the staff for my birthday desert. Great place!
As always outstanding service super hot food from the brigade style kitchen just wonderful.
Great food, intimate and elegant ambiance. So glad we found this little gem.
We ate there two nights while staying in the hotel. Lobster bisque and butternut squash soup, pear salad, charcuterie board, duck, lamb chops, creme brûlée, and flan all excellent. No spirits but plenty of wine and beer selections. Friendly service. Pricey but worth it for what appears to be only fine dining in area.
Thank you for wonderful night.
Excellent ambiance and very good food and service. Menu surprisingly varied.
This was my first time trying La Cocina. The restaurant was charming and quaint. We tried the lobster bisque and thought it was terrific but I was a little surprised there wasn’t visible lobster meat added to the soup. The salmon and osso bucco dishes were nice, the grouper with crab meat honestly tasted somewhat fishy. I was truly impressed with the service and would definitely try this restaurant again.
The food was of the highest quality food and service was perfect
La Cocina always has had the most amazing food, great service, and a beautiful ambiance! Always a wonderful experience!
