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.

One of my favorite restaurants in the Oak Cliff area. Always has great food and great service. It was my wife's birthday, and the waiter made us feel especially important. You certainly want to check out the menu, and the ambiance is wonderful. One of the best Mexican food restaurants anywhere!

Wife and I had diner Saturday night at La Calle Doce fro first time. She has a gallery near there in Bishop Arts and this was a pleasant find. Excellent seafood menu with a few beef and chicken options fro "landlubbers". We got there at 9 pm and it was still hopping. Great service and our waiter Jose was attentive and offered great suggestions . I had their signature salmon dish and loved it, wife went with beef enchiladas and said they were great. Their salsa and chips was perfect and the Verde salsa was fantastic. I don't know how I haven't heard of this place before now , but we will be back !

I've been dining here since I was a kid. I recently came back to Dallas and brought my family for some down-home Mexican sea food. Everyone was courteous and respectful. Our food arrived on time and was warm and delicious.

Lots of room for large groups and banquet style events. If you're lucky you'll be seated in the original house structure which is more quiet and better suited for more intimate/cozy dining.

The live music was a nice touch -- and a staple ever since I can remember.

It's not clear to me why The Simpsons was playing on the TVs in the background, but I think that had more to do with the upcoming football game -- we were seated near the rear bar.

La Calle Doce was great! The location is easy to get to, service and food were great, and the margaritas are awesome! Great place to go for a break from the normal tex-me and get Mexican seafood done right. Plenty of stuff on the menu for those who do not prefer fish as well.

Experience was very disappointing. Went to La Calle Doce with another couple to celebrate our anniversary. They put us at a table in the bar area, next to the kitchen. The night was spent trying to speak over the noise of the bartender's blender and/or wait staff rushing past our table to and from the kitchen. The food was nothing special and they clearly did not have enough staff to handle the number of customers...I can't recommend La Calle Doce based on our experience and we won't be coming back.
