Went with my wife, daughter, teenage granddaughter, and 18 month old granddaughter. Ordered Azteca Queso appetizer, sour cream enchiladas, ceviche, guiso and fajitas. Service was great and all meals were delicious. Musicians sang to the baby.

The shrimp enchiladas are my favorite and is served with a small bowl of fish soup which is excellent. The red snapper is also an excellent choice. I have not had any dish that I have not enjoyed!

One of the first Mexican restaurants in Dallas to offer quality Mexican seafood along with a delicious homemade Tex-Mex menu. Opened in 1981 by the Sanchez family using an older renovated house in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas. In an earlier era, Oak Cliff was was one of the most wealthy areas of town, & it still has some...

I'm been visiting La Calle Dolce for 20 years and have always enjoyed it. I stopped the other day for lunch and was so disappointed. I had the sea food chile relleno and couldn't even eat it. I asked for ranchero, however, it can coveted in queso. The center wasn't even hot, nor were the vegetables it was served with.... More

We went there for the seafood, I had a soup that was not very hot and the taste was not fresh. Now the fajitas plate for two was good the meat had good taste also the sides. The service was great and quick.

Place it's actually a house that's converted into a restaurant, their specialty is seafood. The food is actually average, not bad but not the greatest, prices are a bit expensive. I would recommend for dessert their "flan" it's pretty good. Not sure if I would come back anytime soon.

We brought my wife's 91 yo mother to La Calle Doce Oak Cliff for lunch. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The building was handicap accessible. The food was excellent as always. This is one of our favorite stops whenever we visit Dallas. We do highly recommend it.

Incredible, authentic Mexican seafood restaurant. Order the oyster cocktail! Superb. My husband had the paella and was very satisfied. Enough food for two with that entree, easily. I had the butter garlic shrimp and it was mouthwatering. Nothing disappoints there except the amount of raw onions on most things! Ask them to hold the raw onions, unless you are a... More

The food was average (El Ranchito is much better), but one thing for sure, they will up-sale you on everything ! They add the price to your meal EVEN if you don't order it. We ordered the fajitas, but did not order the cheese and sour cream (knowing it would cost an additional $1.50). When it came out, we told... More

Since 1981 La Calle Doces has been serving the Dallas area delicious seafood and Tex-Mex made with the freshest ingredients. Signature dishes such as Pescado a la Parilla, Ceviche and Camaron a la Veracruzana have made such an impact that on August 6th, 1999 a second location was opened in Lakewood.

Guess can enjoy the rich culture of Coastal Mexico through the fresh and flavorful cuisine. Just 10 minutes from Downtown Dallas, La Calle Doce offers daily specials, friendly smiles, and a cozy atmosphere and traditional menu.
