La Cocina is our go to restaurant for fine dining on the island.... Food is outstanding, service is excellent... Can be a bit noisy at times... Dinner can be a bit pricey but lunch and breakfast are quite reasonable..... Never had a bad meal or experience in five years.

This restaurant is always top notch; never a disappointment; prices are reasonable. I don't know of a comparable dining experience anywhere in the area, especially for the price.

For Father's Day ( or actually the night before ). Excellent food, preparation , and presentation . The head chef was open for questions , especially about the special "monster fish". We were there for a family occasion but I've also been there for a romantic night with my wife . I see why it is ranked number one in Saint Augustine Beach .

This restaurant never disappoints! The food and service is exceptional. Dinner prices are what you would expect for fine dining, and lunch is about what you would pay anywhere on St Augustine beach. Love it!

We were traveling and searched the web for recommendations. The La Cocina International Restaurant was awesome. We liked it so much we stopped for breakfast the next morning. It is a place we will return when in the area. Our waiter Javier provided exceptional service and his knowledge of the food perpetration was amazing. He added to an already perfect evening. We had the Escargot as an appetizer and Frutos dl Mar and Shrimp Crusted Snapper as our entrees. The seafood was so fresh and perfectly cooked. In fact I have almost stopped ordering lobster as usually chewy and/or over cooked. This one was perfect. They had Peruvian black potatoes as a side for one of the nightly specials and we were able to substitute the mashed potatoes that came with our entrees for the black potatoes. I never want regular potatoes again.

Great food and service, as usual! Time though to update the ambiance
Always a pleasure
This restaurant is always satisfying because it is consistently good and the waitstaff is alert to your needs.
Romantic Setting - Excellent Food
La Cocina is a small, intimate restaurant that was perfect for our anniversary dinner. The ceviche was 2nd only to that we've had in Peru. It was outstanding. My husband had the osso bucco and it was also delicious! The service was pleasant and very on top of things. I'd recommend this spot for sure!

All four of our dishes were exceptionally good with exceptional service.
Our favorite place in St. Augustine for every meal
Delicious food, great presentation, fresh ingredients, variety of items on menu, nice ambience, consistent with every meal. We have never had a negative experience at La Cocina, it's our go to restaurant when we have friends in town and when we're by ourselves. We tend to do breakfast and lunch more often than dinner, but they're all incredible. Lobster Bisque is great and their soup of the day is always delicious too. We enjoyed Thanksgiving at La Cocina this year and would enjoy other holiday meals with family here. In fact, my brother had his rehearsal dinner here.
We were a little worried about brining our kids 8 and 10 but it was a family friendly environment. All us loved our dinners filet, seabass and lobster.

Everything was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The ceviche was refreshing and the portion was generous. The lobster was perfectly prepared for my Frutos Del Mar and the butter sauce was flavorful without being overpowering. Beautiful presentation of the pineapple dessert. Highly recommend and would definitely go back the next time we visit St. Augustine.

Wonderful food and service! Great for date night! Lovely wine selection too,!
We had a lovely dinner, we both ordered the same meal. My wife and I asked for our meat to be medium. She prefers it more rare and hers came med well and mine was medium. We were no heart broken but noticed that if you want the 5 star reputation besides the care that was given which we thought was 100% , so the food needs to be 100% out the door! I expected to spend $100.00 so it was fine other than the minor glitch. Thank you
Excellent wait staff and service. Food was excellent as usual. Presentation was stunning.
Week might quiet dinner
Great food, service and atmosphere. Great for week night local dinner. Love the friendly people and location. A great find.
La Cocina is truly a fantastic, upscale restaurant with a superb cuisine and wine selection (and you may bring your own wine if you wish). It is the best restaurant on Anastasia Island, and I would not recommend the casual, flipflop tattoo crowd (Mango Mango, or Salt Life is just down the street).The service staff are very friendly and attentive. The food dishes are wonderful with a very unique touch at presentation. Also, don't bring the kids, this is for adults who want a quiet place to converse and enjoy without "distractions". A true diamond in the rough for St. Augustine Beach!

Our son wanted La Cocina for his graduation dinner. We had never been, as it was fairly new. We were amazingly surprised by the quality of food. Definitely five star for St. Augustine. Highly recommended for tha special night out. Looking forward to returning.
The decor of the restaurant is rather elegant which is a surprise for a beachside community. The food is delicious and displayed in a very attractive manner on the plate. The sauces for the dishes are distinctive and very tasty. The service was also excellent.
Wonderful ambience, excellent food!
We each chose a different entree and were not disappointed. The food was presented beautifully, the waiter was excellent at suggesting wine pairings for each dish, everything was superb!!! Will definitely return next time we are in town.

My husband and I both enjoyed the food,the salmon was lovely as well as the chicken. We couldn't find any dessert that caught our interest, but wouldn't doubt the quality and flavor. The hosts was friendly and informative about the food. The environment was warm but some what on the noisey side (I thought by the looks of the restaurant it would've been a little bit more quite).However, we enjoyed ourselves.
Excellent as Usual
We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years, and it has become one of our favorites in the area. Always good food and a nice atmosphere without breaking the bank.
Love this place
Our Chicken and Osso Buco were delicious as were the wine options. However, our friends did not like the escargot or the Caesar salad. We loved the wait staff and wine selections along with the ambiance. We will definitely be back.

Enjoy the Portobello Carpaccio and Seafood Paella- skip the escargots and ribeye steak as they were not very good. Our server was excellent and they have a nice selection of wines.
Love this place!
Our "go to" Saturday date night place when in St.Augustine! Food is incredible, presentation impeccable, service perfect, wine list delectable and dessert....yummy! Don't miss out on giving this restaurant a try! You'll be coming back too!
Best of the Best
La Cocina is arguably the best restaurant in St. Augustine, a city noted for its fine dining. Service is always top notch. Food is always perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary with a night out at La Cocina and there isn't a better choice in town. Never rushed. And.....you avoid the parking problems of the city!
Very good restaurant
All seven people enjoyed their meals and the service was excellent. We will return. St. Augustine is a gem and you will need time to explore this picturesque city.
Another Great Experience
We stop here on our way to the Keys and back every year. We are never dissapointed. Food and service are excellent. Prices are high but not exorbitant. Overall a great place to have a nice dining experience.
La Cocina, St. Augustine Beach
Food fabulous. Wonderful presentation. George, our waiter, excellent. Will return.
Food was great, as always. Service impeccable. One of our favorite restaurants in a restaurant rich town.
Great spot on the beach!
We are St. Augustine residents who love this place. Food is great, service is great and the ambiance illustrates St. Augustine ancient culture. Great for the whole family!
Still has what it takes
We've been going to La Cocina for about 7-8 years and I have to say that even with an ownership change a couple years ago it is still in my top 5 restaurants in St. Augustine. Even though it's located in a hotel I get the impression that the majority of the people eating there are locals like myself looking for repeatable quality . It is a classy spot in a tourist town that seems sometimes like it has more restaurants than residences ;-)
Great food and service is so available😎

Excellent meal, impeccable service
We tried this restaurant to celebrate the end of a great winter vacation. We were pleasantly surprised. Don't always know if you can trust reviews on line but this one was a reL hit. Had the organge Ruffe was great. Also a really nice wine list. Very artistic presentation. Will definitely return
Wonderful dining experience.
Wonderful dining experience.
Our disappointment was in the quality of much of the food, including a very fatty filet and overcooked fish. So much was nice, especially the service and the ambiance and decor are very nice.

Disappointed. Based on reviews and pricing expected a better experience. This restaurant is located in a hotel and it feels like it. Menu is interesting but taste was bland. Had the lobster ravioli and red snapper. Ravioli was not good at all and snapper was boring and bland. Service was attentive and professional.

Nice place, great food but did not have a full bar. Would have liked to known in advance.
