It was my birthday and we had a group of 20. They were ready with our reservation when we got there. Our servers were great and very considerate. Drinks were good and the food was delicious. I would recommend this highly.

We took a group of 7 there for one of our co-worker's birthdays. The service was friendly and very prompt. Lunch prices were very reasonable. Love the "old house" feel. Would recommend for any occasion!!!!

La Calle Doce is a great restaurant with wonderful seafood and vegetarian options. It's a great place for a date, birthday, or girl dinner. If you don't like seafood, there are chicken options as well. I definitely recommend this place!

Food was good as usual. The dservice was not that good; had to ask for menus, seemed put out that we didn’t order drinks immediately even though we had no menus.

It was very loud and we could barely talk. Got better when the crowds left around 8:00

We had a party of 7 for my mother's birthday dinner. The restaurant was very crowded and lively with lots of graduation parties, but we were seated at a comfortable table and the food and service were fabulous as always - and the mariachi singer who visited our table added a wonderful, memorable touch to our evening! This is one of our favorite restaurants to take friends and family who visit from out of town.

My husband and I frequent here often but this last experience was awful. It was a group of 13 people for my dear friend’s birthday. I was so sad that it was such a poor experience, as I have raved about this place to my friends.

We asked for waters several times before they were ever given. We ordered alcoholic drinks that were never delivered. We ordered a nacho appetizer with shrimp on the side, and we were told upon delivery of the food, “sorry we couldn’t put the shrimp on the side.” I politely confronted the manager and she made excuses like “we don’t ever give everyone water” or “the server is new”. Though, when I told her that I felt like she was making excuses for the poor experience, she did own it. Though little action was taken. She gave us a round of shots that they usually give on the house anyway. The manager was unwilling to comp any of the food, despite the aforementioned appetizer issue, and I had two friends who did not eat their meals because the food was dry (talapia and chicken).

Again, I feel so sad about this poor experience. I think I will return but never with a group of people.

We had a reservation for 7pm and was seated until 7:30ish, only had one waitress for 15 people and she was not good at all; kept forgetting drink orders, we ask her three times to bring us more salsa and kept forgetting to do So, food was cold and 2 people ordered caldos and caldos were literally sitting there for 10 mins before she realized that was our order and serve them to us... Food was bland ,service was bad and slow and then she had the audacity to pre charge her tip on the bill which mounted to around $50 , which in my opinion she dis NOT deserved.. super bad experience

This was my first time here. The food was great at fita in with other comparables. It was a bit noisy and the waitress would bypass you rather than get you attention for an order. She may have had an off day but overall it was a great experience. Ideal would be not at max capacity.

I wanted seafood, I have lived in the Cancun area for many years and was disappointed with our seafood choices - vuelva la vida, ceviche and agua chile were all soso. We did enjoy the fried panela cheese - that was out favorite dish of the day. I will return one day to try the seafood soup which was the dish that was recommended to me!

Each time I go to La Calle Doce, it is like a new experience. The worst dinning experience that I had there was wonderful. I hate to recommend it for fear that it will be too full to facilitate me the next time I go. It has the best sea food in Dallas.
