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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
