The reason I gave this 4 stars not 5 stars is because La Cocina does not have a full bar. However the food was delicious!

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.

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.
