One of the best meals I've had in a long time. Their lobster bisque is to die for. Salmon and scallops were amazing. I highly recommend the creme brulee as well. Loved it!

We were a little concerned that this restaurant is in a rather old hotel. It is rather dark and dated feeling but appearances aside, the food and service were quite good! The kitchen is exposed and busy with at least one chef and several helpers....More

Don’t let the appearance fool you. It’s really cool inside. The menu is Latin (everybody says Mexican, but There’s not a burrito on the menu. Try the chef’s cup of soup. I just had a beef soup, and it waswonderful.

My husband and I went to La Cocina for Valentine Day dinner. They did have a pre - fixed menu, which I am not crazy about. The restaurants just do it to control the menu. It was a little pricey, $80 per person but very...More

This restaurant is in a hotel. It has 4.5 stars and maybe that’s for the dinner? We got the breakfast burrito and breakfast sandwich. Both were okay but not mind blowing. They do not have any coffee outside of drip for coffee lovers.

We lucked out to get an early reservation for New Year's Eve dinner. The Food, Service and atmosphere were a lovely way to welcome the New Year.
