Service was terrible... the young guy may have been new or something but the food and ambience made up for it.

The ambiance was lovely, but otherwise the food was definitely subpar. The paella was not flavorful and the chicken in it was mushy. The salmon tacos did not come with any sauce. I had to ask for water refills, no one came to offer them. The guitar player made the evening, though. He is very talented.

We couldn’t get drinks and missing order items, guess when your group size automatically includes gratuity they don’t care about giving you good service. They sure did remember to add the gratuity but not what we ordered.

We had a great experience with the fantastic food and entertainment by a guitarist plus employees who presented sombreros for the birthday people (2) and sang at the table. Great idea and fun! So nice not to have loud music to contend with, for a change! La Calle Doce does it right!

I had a poor experience but I still like this restaurant. They took my reservation for a family party of 12 on Christmas Eve and then CHANGED their closing hours so that we could not get there in time. Christmas Eve reservations are tough enough without "moving the goal posts". OPEN TABLE could be a great service if they would post the hours for places open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

We haven’t been to this restaurant in years because we moved out of downtown, and it did not disappoint. The food was just as I remembered. The service was fast, accurate, and very welcoming. We had a large party too, but they got our drinks and food out promptly.
We had a wonderful time. Thank you for helping us with a successful birthday celebration for my husband!!

Went here on Saturday to celebrate a bacherlotte, never been to this location before but when we arrived the manager was not the greatest greeter ,we were sat down by a nice waitress but we did not enjoy ourselves due to the heat we asked I'd they can cool it down manager did nothing to provide us with good customer service we ended up leaving early due to feeling irritated with heat

We brought a group of 8 here to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Although we normally love the fun festive atmosphere of this place, we were unfortunately stuck in the side room, where there was no music and poor service. We sat for over 2 hours, and quickly lost our party mood. The food as always was great, but next time we will insist on seating in the main area.

Very good. But don’t order a margarita on the rocks, though. The last time we ordered one, there was about 4 sips to it because it was all ice. This time we ordered it and requested light on the ice. No such luck. Food is very good. They didn’t register that I’d eaten there, so got a notice from Open Table that I was a no show. 👎

Our favorite spot when we’re hungry for some Mexican Seafood. Host staff is always very friendly!
Service is always exceptional. On most ocasiones, drinks are always refilled before finished and food is always delivered as expected. Tortillas are always hand made and never have had a hard time with the serving staff. This is the Go-To place for any occasion

My friend and I had never been before and we're both kind of picky so we were worried we wouldn't like it but that definitely wasn't the case! We were immediately greeted and seated. Our waiter was fast, accurate and polite. We never had to ask for a thing! The food was delicious and we waddled happily back to the car haha. We will definitely be back!

The food was ok. The ambiance was great, live music -there's a guy going to each table and doing song requests. The decorations are fantastic, and drinks are cheap.
We ordered the queso azteca it was very tasty but the sauce was more green chile sauce and a few pieces of avocado just thrown on the plate. I had the shrimp cocktail, which was made out of only tomato sauce and shrimp. More sauce than shrimp, no avocado, onion, or cilantro. It was very bland. We also had a relleno with the seafood stuffing and for some reason it was placed on top of a leaf of lettuce. Not really sure why, but it made cutting into the relleno messy. We asked the server for a recommendation on what type of sauce to put over it and she looked like she had no clue. We also ordered a margarita and a pina colada, the drinks were the best part of the dining experience.

My experience was very unpleasant my waiter was Mr. Lupe and he was not very consistent and when our food got there by an unknown waiter and let our waiter know about our meal he ignored him and then kept complaining about another group of Asian customers seated right next to us and at the end the waiter brought me my check total of $98.57 I place $2.00 tip signed it for a total of $100.57and on Monday my card got chrged for $110.57 the money is not my issue or concern , my concern is the TRUST on the employees overcharging my card without my authorization and then I called the restaurant and the person answering the phone very unprofessionally and the management or any one was not available to talk to about the issue.
