The lunch menu isn't necessarily Latin food based. There are staples - ceviche, cuban bread, tres leches cake. I'm not going to talk about the food we had (it was really good by the way). I must talk about the service. It was outstanding. My wife and I brought our 7 month old son to meet an old friend for lunch. Katja immediately brought out a booster seat for us and asked if there was anything we needed. Then, she took things to another level: she brought out avocado for our voracious little guy! Heck, the kitchen even cut the pieces of avocado into easily held and digestible chunks. It's service like that why we'd return to this restaurant when we find ourselves near the St. Augustine Beach in the future!

This is an outstanding, classy restaurant right in the middle of Saint Augustine Beach. The international cuisine is upscale and prepared to perfection. Space is limited so reservations are recommended.

La Cocina was our choice for a quiet Valentine's Day dinner. Although they had created a limited five course menu, there was sufficient variety to please all palates. Food was carefully prepared and each course was delicious. I can't say enough good things about our server, Victor. He was pleasant, polite and attentive without being intrusive. As a special treat for Valentine's Day, La Cocina offered dessert and coffee on their open-air terrace where a delightful guitarist was serenading us with heartfelt ballads. What a lovely evening.

Made a reservation for Valentine's Dinner on the recommendation from a friend. Did not know that it was a pre fixed 5 course menu at $79.99 per person. Asked if we could order from the menu and the waiter said "no". We weren't planning on spending that much for dinner. At that price I expected it to be "over the moon" food and it wasn't. We were very disappointed!!!!

Went for Valentine's Dinner. Food was exceptional. Talked to locals who said it is the "place everyone comes to eat that live in St. Augustine". Evening only fell flat when we went upstairs to get dessert. One selection and no place to sit. Set up in workout room it seems. Was cold so no one went outside to enjoy the music which was good. Will definitely go back.

I brought my wife here for valentine's day. The 5 course meal was amazing! Absolutely the best meal we have ever enjoyed!

The server (Jorge) was excellent. Everything was brought out prompty.

We absolutely recommend LA Cocinas to anyone!

We selected this restaurant for Valentine and Anniversary celebration do to their menu selections. But the restaurant decided to have a fixed price menu for the Valentine Day, we wished the restaurant would have informed us of this change prior to our visit. We felt this being price gouging and poor food selection from the special menu.

They were unable to find our reservation but still sat us immediately.

However, we were sat with 10 minutes before we left due to no server acknowledging us.

The menu is extremely expensive and very limited.

Excellent meal! Very good service. Alcohol limited to wine and beer. Acoustics a little loud. But, overall a very enjoyable evening!

Waiter was as pleasant as you would want and then some. Was there with my family and the only problem was that we filled up on such a great dinner we did not have room for dessert. Food was EXCELLENT ! Service was fantastic.

The food was excellent as always. However, we were quite disappointed that there was no acknowledgement that we were celebrating our anniversary. We checked the box that it was our anniversary when we made the reservation and we wrote a special note. Although there were many open tables, the entire night we were seated at a smaller table for two where we couldn’t see the fireplace. At the end of the meal, I asked the waiter if he knew it was our anniversary and asked them if they still did something special for a special occasion and he just mumbled something about sometimes they did. This used to be our favorite place to celebrate a special occasion but it isn’t anymore.

There are not enough positive words to describe La Cocina. The food is consistently delicious and prepared perfectly. Located inside a hotel in a beach town, this is not a typical beach restaurant. However, I have seen every style of dress, from jeans and t-shirt to suit and tie. The prices are reasonable and the food and service will exceed your expectations. The kicker for me, there is plenty of free parking. No driving around downtown looking for a space and having to pay to park! :)

Remarquable. Our waiter, Victor, was very professional. The food was tasty and came in large portions. I highly recommand the lobster soup and bouillabaisse. The chef was able to put together a wonderful vegetarian meal without cheese that wasn’t on the menu for my husband. We shall be back.
