Enjoyed our 21st anniversary dinner here. The servers are so kind; food is phenomenal. I had braised beef short rib. Hubby had crab stuffed grouper. Both meals were amazing. We brought our own special bottle of wine from home. Corkage fee was only $15 as opposed to the traditional $25. Super convenient since we were staying at hotel which is also great. We’ve eaten here before and is always been a great experience. I highly recommend.
We sat at our favorite table. Our server was very professional, attentive, and friendly. Food was perfect!
They accomodated our reservation by allowing us to be seated prior to our time.
Delightful Prefix Menu at Easter, wonderful presentation, fabulous carrot soup, pear salad was delightful. My New York was cooked to perfection. It cant get any better...and thank you for having your servers wear masks- it is appreciated- we are heathcare providers.
This is one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in St.Augustine. Norberto, the chef and owner, is creative and fantastic with his menu. For $45 per person we had a four-course Easter dinner.
What a wonderful Easter Dinner. We had the Lamb Shank and the Tenderloin Bisque. Everything was just wonderful. We will be back again to try the menu and will tell our friends to join us.
We both enjoyed our meals - escargo starter, lamb chops & crab encrusted grouper with a nice bottle of red wine.
Hidden gem with excellent menu and good wine menu. You feel like part of family
We have eaten here several times and the food has always been very good. The service is always wonderful. We will be back.
I had been to this restaurant once before and loved the food. My son goes to Flagler so we asked him to meet us there for dinner.
The service was very slow in the beginning. We had reservations so the expectation is that we have a server. We waited awhile for a server and we waited awhile for drinks. Other than that, the food came out at a normal pace.
The food here is consistently amazing. I had shrimp vodka sauce on penne, my husband had the chef’s special which was pork, and my son had the beef ravioli with wine reduction. All were very good and prepared well.
Our meal was delicious, service fantastic. The restaurant is charing however it is quite loud.
Always Wonderful!! One of My Faves!!!!!♥️♥️♥️♥️
The entrance to the Restaraunt is through the hotel, and it’s a little underwhelming. Don’t be put off by the odd ambiance outside. The food was delicious and the service was so attentive, without being pesky.
Wonderful! Thanks To everyone, great service, food etc, see you again soon 👍Pat & Sue Hale and the Youngs
Great as always!
Wonderful experience. We will go again.
Food was really great. Loved the lobster bisque. The mussels were great as well.
Exceptional meal with very attentive staff.
So pleased with the ambience, service and, of course the quality of the food. There is no other place in Saint Augustine Beach that can match this restaurant. It is always a pleasure to return to this relaxing atmosphere.
Reservation was for 645. We were seated right away however table was too small for our reservation. 8pm and we still had not received our entrees and noticed many tables were still waiting as well. 1/2 of our party had to leave in the middle of dinner because it was taking too long. We were told the kitchen was “running behind”. Daughters filet ordered med came out rare. Ravioli dish cold when received. Servers tried their best and were very friendly. $200 wasted I’m sorry we won’t return.
Beautiful food. Great ambiance
It was very nice ! Meal was tasty and beautiful presentation! Loved our server. Our seats wer in a good place! I like how they used heavy silverware, very elegant
La Cocina International always deliver on all counts, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, we are frequent quests for dinner.
The noise level from other people is be too high when filled up.
Excellent delicious food from a great unique variety of menu items. We especially liked the carrot ginger soup. Delicious and nutritious!
Service was attentive but not irritating. Menu was extensive as was the wine list. Food was delicious with nice presentation and good value. Would not hesitate to return!
We went for a birthday celebration. Hands down this is one of my top 5 dining experiences. The service was phenomenal, they were so kind. The food was out of this world delicious. Everything from the moment we walked in the door was top notch and the perfect ending to the spa day we had just had. This restaurant exceeded our expectations.
Great experience. Food was tasty, service was excellent. Lobster bisque...yum.
What a lovely location inside this beautiful hotel Mediterranean theme wonderful staff lovely ambience very very comfortable environment and you guys definitely need to get some booze as far as top shelf liquor in your restaurant because some people do not drink wine and beer but the food was superb the service was impeccable very very very lovely looking forward to returning and seeing you guys again thank you very very much it was a pleasure dining with you
We were warmly greeted and from the wine through our meal everything exceeded our expectations.
A hidden gem in St Augustine Beach! We are D.C. foodies on a brief Covid getaway and were delighted to find La Cocina Chef served a sea bass with a flavor combination not to be missed and the seafood pasta was done to perfection with just the right amount of heat. Put this one on your list if you are in the area!
We liked it so much we went 3 times. The Pear salad is delightful. Everything special with good presentation.
Excellent food and service. Definitely returning.
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.
