    Oyster Grill de La Docena was so lovely. It has a great open air restaurant with a patio facing the ocean and boardwalk. There's plenty of people watching and lovely views. The oyster options are vast and the servers have a good knowledge of where each one is from and what they taste like. The server made an amazing drink suggestion as well. Also, the servers sort of support one another so there's always someone nearby to help the table which felt great. If you go late in the evening, the dance club next door gets loud and distracting, but that's not on the restaurant. There were so many things on the menu I wanted to try, I have to go back again during my trip.

    Muy descuidado, en la atención, menú (opciones) y servicio de meseros. Nada que ver con las otras sucursales. Soy fan de la cadena y he ido a todos de manera frecuente y ayer no fue una buena experiencia. Mala actitud de los meseros y tienes que pedir varias veces las cosas (30min para un tequila?) el pulpo joven dificil de masticar, mal cocido. y menú muy limitado, cómo no tienen pinchos o algo similar en su reemplazo.

    Celebrábamos un cumpleaños en familia. Pésimo servicio. Muy desatentos, todos los platillos los llevaron equivocados (no le Sirvieron a nadie el platillo que pedimos) e incluso el mesero llegó medio rudo a quitarle unas papas fritas a mi hijo. Muy decepcionados. Pedimos un ceviche peruano que era todo menos eso.

    Comida y servicio excelente. El único punto negativo es que tienen área de fumar en la terraza y eso demerita enormemente al restaurante, ya que la mayoría de los establecimientos actualmente prohiben fumar, en este caso los fumadores pueden salir al malecón a fumar, los castigados somos los no fumadores al no poder sentarnos en terraza y de cualquier forma el humo llega adentro.....

    This restaurant use to be one of my favorite restaurants of the bay. The last time before this time something happen with the food than make us feel sick and we stop going there till yesterday that we decided give it another chance because the flavor of the food is good and we like it. This time the food was good however we had a bad experience with the music, it was kind of communism indoctrinate music and for those who are been affected by this system is disrespectful. We really expected the manager take notes.

    SE DISCRIMINA A LAS FAMILIAS, llegue con mis hijas y no nos dejaron sentar en el Area pegada al malecón (más de la mitad del restaurante) alegando que era área de fumar y que los niños no podían estar en esa área. No había ninguna indicación al respecto y el Area estaba prácticamente sola salvo 2 mesas de adultos que no estaban fumando, de las 5 mesas que había 3 eran familias que nos encontrábamos muy cerca una de la otra. Adicionalmente si alguien llegara a fumar el humo prácticamente iría directo a los niños por la brisa marina. Todo es fabuloso MENOS EL TRATO INDIGNO QUE SE DA A LAS PERSONAS QUE DECIDEN LLEVAR A SUS HIJOS A COMER.

    For the upmarket food seeker, this is a great choice. Truth told, the concept here is a bit confused, so follow these tips. 1. Though the menu is organized around traditional courses, it’s really a sharing menu, where platters of steak, shells, seafood and fresh vege hit the table for tasting. This will save some confusion about how the food arrives, is portioned and is priced. (The burger is there for you basic cousin who needs their own plate.) 2. Make sure you ask about the specials (unless you have night vision and spy the blackboard in the corner), and the food descriptions on the menu are terrible, making it appear the food is very one dimensional, which it’s not. Make the waitperson describe the dishes. 3. The flavors are great but a lot of the seasoning is done by the diner, so use the salt and lime liberally. We wished a bottle of their delicious olive oil has also been at table. That said - this is casual top-quality seafood dining. Oysters Rockefeller (minor point, they’re not actually Oysters Rockefeller) were delicious, just cooked, and swimming in a delectable pesto. Grilled panella is divine, but order extra tortillas and tomato cruda from the start, not sure why it’s presented with such skinny accompaniments for such a rich plate of velvety cream). The grilled fish sounded boring but was spectacularly beautiful, *perfectly* cooked, smothered in onions and greens - a fresh delight. Well stocked bar and attentive service. Like much of millennial dining, the place can’t decide if it’s upmarket or casual. With the right balance it really does both. Oh and the view of the Malecon is a stunner.

    The fried oyster appetizer was excellent, however, the grilled artichoke was not good at all. There were 4 of us and we ordered: 1) oysters Roquefeller Tradicional - they were good but really could not taste the oysters for all the other stuff, 2) 1/2 Kilo Blue Shrimp (6 very large) were excellent but... with heads & tails & peelings so very messy when the only napkins they give you are cocktail napkins and not dinner napkins, 3) Pescado Brasas (catch of the day) came fried with head & tail (which we were not told) and was sent back as it was thought it was a filet of fish so then ordered the Arrachera steak which was excellent and 4) Gazpacho was excellent. Overall the food was very good but the waitstaff had a difficult time understanding English and we had a difficult time understanding Spanish. In addition, they kept taking glasses and plates off the table before we were finished. They did NOT comp us for the uneaten fish even though none had been eaten. So, we had a fairly large bill! And oh, did I mention the napkins?!! It’s just a mixed bag. If you speak fluent Spanish and don’t mind heads & tails on your seafood you may enjoy it. For now, I will only go for lunch and order gazpacho and a glass of wine. I will not return with friends for dinner till they “fine tune”.

    We had fun. It was good, we ordered well and we were looking for a fun time. There was 6 of us, lunch was over $11,000 with tip. The place is trying to be cooler than it is, food was decent, nothing amazing...service was good after they saw how big our bill was. Not my first Docena experience. Hope it works in PV.

    The old Cerveceria Union is now the Oyster Bar in the same location. We love La Docena in Guadalajara. The Oysters (Rockefeller, Fried and Tobasco) were excellent. However, except for the tuna entrees, the pulpo, shrimp, and arrachera were average at best. Trying to get competent service, forgot it. They won't bring you napkins or a drink in any normal time frame. Many times you have to ask two or three times. Totally disorganized. The restaurants needs better staff or management. Not sure. Keep your expectations low here for an upscale restaurant. Our advice is to choose your meals wisely and try to go when no one is there. The deserts were also excellent.
