Reviews for La Cocina

I use to visit here often being a student at Rutgers U. I’ve since graduated so I haven’t been here in the area in while. I stopped today for lunch. I was highly disappointed. I got the baked chicken with rice. The chicken was very salted. I couldn’t finish it because of the over powering salt. I don’t think I’ll be going back.

Great service, tasty food, good pricing... everything I tried in La Cocina so far was tasty and the way the service is provided make it taste even better. It can't get 5* as a restairant because it's kind of bistro/eatery, but food is better than in many "restaurants" with table service. It is a pleasure to eat there. And there is a deck in the back - hard to believe you are in the middle of Newark.

Stumbled upon this HIDDEN GEM this morning with my husband and son and let me just tell you as someone from MIAMI who has eaten and enjoyed many Cuban restaurants this place is phenomenal. The moment you walk through the door the owner which is a sweetheart greets you like family. You can see the love he has for his restaurant in his eyes and his voice. I had the pepper steak platter and my Husband had the chicken stew platter. Let’s start off by saying they show love with full review
