Was a pleasant experience, lovely little tucked away gem in the heart of a beach-going surfer district. Nicely decorated with innovative curtains strategically placed between wall tables to create intimacy and quiet. We were disheartened to learn that the oft-raved about, recommended lobster ravioli was not available, but lobster bisque was excellent. Uncertainty about explanation about the availability of lobster was questionable. On a somewhat sour note, the waiter, as pleasant as he was was of very little help when choosing a wine. Red or White is not quite the level of advice one would expect at such a mid-upscale restaurant, and finally we had to get up from the table once, or ask another server to fetch our waiter for service and check. Still overall a cosy spot which we we try again when the lobsters warm up.

I enjoyed this restaurant, however, was a bit disappointed in their service and it was not our waiter, as I believe he was wonderful, however, we could see that he was dealing with many tables and some rather large parties. In addition, I found it rather warm and couldn't wait to leave to feel cool.

We've eaten here many times and are usually quite pleased, but this time something was really off with the service. An entree did not come out timely (it took a full fifteen extra minutes after the rest of us were served) and our server was unconcerned. Drinks went unrefilled and plates were not cleared. In fact, our server completely disappeared at one point and we had to ask another server to help us, at which point that server offered us a slice of cake as an apology. On a $250 tab. Too many other dining choices in St. Augustine to put up with this. We probably won't be back.

What a find! Located at the beach in a motel . I must say this is certainly not a typical beach hotel dining room. This is gourmet food beautifully presented and served. The service was outstanding and the menu prices reasonable. I look forward to returning if and or when I am in the area.

Nice atmosphere albeit you can tell the place has only been updated superficially. It could stand to be redone. The wait staff are all nice and know their products. The food was so good! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there.

Have enjoyed the experience many times and the food, service and ambiance are always beyond our expectations. The staff is on top of everything to the point of bringing a special dessert for the special occasion. For those of you whom write about the decor I would hope you would have better sense. The theme is early Med., hense the metal etc. One of the best restaurants in St. Augustine.

The food was great, the service was impeccable and the fireplace lent a warm glow to the lovely dining ambience. It was my daughter 's birthday, and she was appreciative and delighted. Though a bit more expensive, it was worth it for a special occasion.

We went for an anniversary meal, and it was a wonderful occasion, from the time we were seated until we walked out the door. The service was excellent and all of the staff were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant, with seasonal instrumental music which was not overpowering for conversation. The presentation for all courses was beautiful and displayed attention to detail. The food itself was also delicious. When I sent my sister pictures of our meal, she wrote, "Wow, beautiful, tell me where did you go!" Would definitely recommend, and when in the area, would go again!

It was my first visit to La Cocina and I thought It a pleasant restaurant. The food was good, the wine list acceptable, the waiting staff attentive. I thought the décor could be refreshed but overall it was a good experience.

I made this Thanksgiving reservation based on what was available that I could find on-line as we were travelling in unfamiliar territory. We were very pleased. Pretty dining room, good food, knowledgeable and pleasant server. We had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner!

First time here since before thanksgiving. The menu has changed. So some of the favorites have been taken off. Fruits de Mar which was a very good meal is gone along with the Lobster Ravioli. Rack of Lamb was not flavorful as I felt it should be. Too much salt content in salad and entree. One of my favorites but not as good as before.

My husband and I had dinner here last Saturday night. We had reservations for 5:45pm and arrived a few minutes early. We were seated right away. We both had the Crab Bisque for starters and it was AWESOME! I ordered the Frutos Del Mar, which was a lot of perfectly cooked seafood- a lobster tail, 6 shrimp, Clams and Mussels served over mashed potatoes. What was I thinking?! That was so much food, every morsel was tasty! (I did have to share that with the Mr.) He ordered the Crab Crusted Snapper and he loved it. We then shared the Creme Brulee', oh my!!!! Have you every had a Creme Brulee' served with a scoop of raspberry sorbet, a sprig of mint and a bit of white chocolate? It very well could be the best dessert I have ever ordered in a restaurant. No kidding. Service was as wonderful as the food. We will be returning when we are back down that way.
