From our arrival to our departure the staff made us feel very special. Excellent wine list. Particular attention was paid to my dietary needs of being lactose intolerant. Service was exceptional. Food was excellent. Would go back if in the neighborhood.

True authentic Mexican food. The food is delicious and the plate presentation just adds to the enjoyment of dining here. I highly recommend the sangria, it is like a fruit explosion in your glass.

We have been going to La Cocina for years. Great place for small clubs to have lunch but our favorite is dinner. Presentation of food is beautiful and taste great and at night time has a romantic flare. The staff there is always friendly.

This isn't a 'seafood' restaurant. There are usually two seafood items and they are excellent. If you want a predominately seafood restaurant with four or five fresh catches every day, try Caps on the Water.
