Food was good. Portions were very adequate. Prices were very fair. Family oriented, but bottle beer and margaritas available. Our service was very good.

We had a great meal in La Cocina we shared combo fajitas which were more than sufficient at the end of a very full day. The fajitas were really tasty and the service was excellent. The meal was very good value for money

Hard to find but worth the search, this is the only Mexican food in town (I don't count Taco Bell). They make everything from scratch and offer a good selection of south of the border choices.

Good food. Made fresh. Not like the store bought stuff. Real Mexican food. Place was clean and service was good.

My measure of a restaurant is whether I would go back there again. La Cocina - I would! After a day of activities but still too early for a big formal meal, my wife and I decided to have an early, simple meal. Neither of us had had lunch. I called to find out if they were open before five,... More

Another great meal on Saturday night. The place is busy but service is excellent. This place has real Mexican food that surpasses any fast food menu in the country. We've been here with our family many times-always great.

Compelling ethnic dining in Penn Yan seems like an oxymoron, but it isn't. This food is serious, and the Posole was the best I ever had (and spicy too, which was helpful in aiding recovery after a day of sampling the local wines). Prices are entirely reasonable (too low in my view) and it is a very nice vacation find.

My husband and I like good Mexican food. It felt crowded in the dining area and enclosed. The food was okay but not our favorite. We most likely will not return.

My mom and I walked in at 8:15pm on Saturday night. We checked online to make sure that they were open, and they were open until 9pm. We waited for someone to come out front to seat us. An employee walked out from the kitchen and said that they closed early at 8pm tonight. We said that their website, Google,... More

My husband and I love to come to la cocina! Our favorites are the chicken flautas and pork napolitos! Service is also always good.
