Oscar and Laura Sanchez have welcomed customers to their seafood and Tex-Mex restaurant since September 1981. Among the Sanchezes' signature dishes are the pescado a la parilla, ceviche and camarón a la Veracruzana. La Calle Doce (Spanish for 12th Street) has décor awash in blues and whites and contains an open courtyard, all of which transports diners to coastal Mexico where fresh, whole-grilled fish await. However, if you want to enjoy these specials and beat the crowd of customers -- who the owners call their "extended family"-- weekdays are your best bet at this restaurant.
In honor of National Seafood Month, the folks at La Calle Doce will offer a four-course meal, available at lunch and dunner, for $19.99. The meal w...

We had a large group (41) in the back dining room. Service was sloppy, food got cold quickly and many orders were sent back to the kitchen, with many remarking the food was not up to the standard that they remembered. There was an open table and during our party the hostess seated a family at one of our open table. We had booked the room a week in advance. The ice tea was poor quality. My friend who I paid for her meal sent her dinner back and selected something else. After paying the check, at home I noticed that I was charged for the entrée that was sent back. Most of us can speak Spanish and sometimes we had to use it with servers. Very poor!
Ceviche is a peculiar twist on the Crock-Pot: scraps of raw fish cooked slowly, not with heat but with lemon or lime juices. La Calle Doce's ceviche is a tight, focused arrangement--a tiny still life--with a cupped lettuce leaf spilling over with avocado chunks, chopped tomato, scallion and opaque creamy-white chunks of fish and shrimp. It strikes the palate like a laser, searing the tongue and scorching the roof with tightly focused acid layers that gently unravel into briny sweetness.... More »
