A word from decarli
decarli restaurant is where rustic meets modern. Chef/owner, Paul DeCarli, pulls from his Swiss-Italian roots to create a menu that reflects his heritage as well as combine local Northwest ingredients. Polenta fries with gorgonzola butter, mussels in fennel-saffron cream sauce, and espresso-braised shortribs are just a few of the many "must-haves.” Soaring open beam ceilings with rustic brick walls add to the ambiance of this 1924 historic building.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This was the best meal I had in the past few years. I'm definitely going back again and again."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We have been customers at DeCarli's for quite some time. We always order the short ribs - they could be featured on the Food Network show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate". The food is always good, rivaling options at the best Portland restaurants, but for a much more reasonable price. The only downside is the noise level gets a bit high, and the dessert offerings don't approach the quality of the other menu items."

  • "Great Beaverton restaurant with character in the suburbs."

  • "Pretty dependable for being good, and a packed house!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "This place is out of the Portland Downtown area but worth the short drive to Beaverton. The quality and quantity of the food for the price is by far Outstanding. Very Positive Vibe in the entire place from the cooks to the server staff. For Years I have enjoyed the amazing everything this place has to offer. I have kids in their 20's and this is the place they want to bring their Favorite Love to Propose... Make the drive and you will be truly satisfied."

  • "My wife had a professional training event and we were looking for a "pick me up". Found Decarli on Open Table and have it a try.... Amazing! Outstanding! Unforgettable!!!! Wait staff are superb and sweetly enthusiastic. Knowledgeable yet conversational! The Caesar was perfection!! We shared an incredible New York Strip that defies description- I wanted another immediately!! Then we had two desserts that were both "out of this world". The fritters are so light and delicate that they probably need a cover to keep them from floating up to the ceiling, but you will devour them before they get above your lips! The experience was divine! Do not deny yourself a delectable dinner at Decarli. You will wsave the directions in your GPS!"

  • "Everything is good but get the Pasta or Gnocchi, its always the stand out. Oysters were perfect."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We shared the bruschetta for a starter and I had the gnocchi (it's the best I've had in town) and my husband had the short ribs. Everything was excellent! Our server was knowledgable and gave great wine recommendations."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our server did a super job getting the food to the table on time. They were also knowledgeable and helpful with the beverage selection process."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My husband and I decided to try decarli and were extremely impressed. The short-ribs are to die for and while the drink service was a bit on the slow side, the food was delish! We will return."

  • "The food and service were good and we got up from our table very pleased. Unfortunately, we needed to avail ourselves of the unisex bathrooms which were badly in need of service. There's no excuse for a restaurant at this level to allow bathrooms to be neglected like this. We discovered their condition around 9:00pm and the dinning room was nowhere near full during our visit so it wasn't as if staff was too busy to check. (Even with a full dinning room there's no excuse!). The food was good enough that we'll give decarli one more try, but will not return if we find the same lack of attention we found on our first visit."

  • "We brought a friend here for her birthday dinner and had a fantastic time. They accommodated a food allergy, brought numerous wine samples before we picked one wine. They brought our cheesecake out with a candle for the birthday girl, who felt very celebrated."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Finally a first class restaurant in Beaverton without the high prices. Food is most excellent, fresh, creative, delicious. So nice to see really nice people dining in an upscale restaurant without high prices and enjoying a splendid meal!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I had the pork shoulder, which was done to perfection and a visual treat. I can honestly say that it was the best meal I have had in at least a year. My wife had the short ribs, which she raved about and promised to have next time we visit. Who would have thought that such a fine dining experience could be had in downtown Beaverton?"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Service was excellent, Menu a little small, however food was delicious, Excellent wine list, We'll be back."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "...but maybe better. My wife and I have dined at Decarli a dozen times; the food is always outstanding. The short ribs are incredible. Eclectic list of delicious appetizers. Cocktails are creative and very well done - and of good size - though a scoche more expensive than I think is warranted. The wine list is extensive, but most notable for its high-quality, well-priced wines by the glass. Food, drinks, ambience... all 5 star. My only complaint, and it's relatively minor, is the service. All of the waiters and waitresses we've had have been attentive without being overbearing. Occasionally, meals come out before appetizers are finished and drinks can take f.o.r.e.v.e.r. Plan ahead when ordering a round with your main meal."

  • "This was my fourth or fifth visit since moving to Beaverton, perhaps the most disappointing of all. In making the reservation I was asked about anything special for our group and I responded accordingly. It seems that my remarks were either disregarded or forgotten. On the other hand, even those in charge didn't seem to care, the receptionist and the waitress were most gracious, but obviously uninformed about the situation. Success does such things to people, I guess, but it makes me wonder how DeCarli will fare in the future. There was another similar experience on my first visit last year when I was not the host but the guest. Hmmm."

  • "decarli would be a hit in The Pearl, and it is a hit in Beaverton. Fabulous food and great service combine to make it a wonderful dining experience."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Decarli has a cool, comfortable atmosphere. The restaurant is divided in two sections with a dining room and a bar with seating. The bar section was very packed and loud, but had a good energy. It's a little dark in the restaurant section at night. That doesn't bother me, but it may be annoying to some. The service was great. My dad ordered a pasta dish that was too spicy for him (it had jalapenos in it - which wasn't part of the description of the dish on the menu), so the waitress was on it and had the kitchen make something else, which he enjoyed. I had the spaghetti and meatballs, which was delicious. I felt the portions were a little small for the price but all in all, I had an enjoyable dining experience and would definitely go back."

  • "Small and Intimate nestled in an overlooked area of Beaverton. Great for a date night, special occasion, or a fantastic happy hour spot. Space is limited!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food that my wife and I had was the best food we have had in the Portland Metro area. I would rate this as one of my top 2 meals I have ever had dining out!!!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The setting of the restaurant is perfect. Dimly lit, not too loud. The food was amazing. My date had the Gnocchi and I had the Shrimp Fettuccine. The serving sizes were small, but perfect for a date with someone you are getting too know (Don't wanna seem like a pig lol). Prices were a little high, menu was a little small. The drinks were STRONG. All and all, I'm glad I made a reservation there, and I will definitely go again."

  • "Really nice interior space, great wine recommendation from staff. Definitely will return."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Had reservations for 8 pm, got seated on or before that time, I don't recall. The service is very good, not formal. I had the steak, which was very good. My aunt had the pizza, which tasted like ones I've had in Italy. Nice taste. My wife liked her meal as well, I don't recall what it was. I will say that it is a little on the high side, so be aware of that. Of course, not everything should be cheap. The food was original, not some typical menu that you could find everywhere. Decarli is probably where we'll go for a special occasion, not a weekly thing. I'll be back."

  • "Fist time to Decarli's and was pleasantly surprised! The ambiance was great and the food was fantastic particularly the polenta fries, a must have!"

  • "My husband and I have been here several times on date night and have never been disappointed. We loved the locally sourced foods and wines."

  • "More like a nice downtown spot than dining in the suburbs. Wish there were more places like it away from Portland. Good food, great service, easy to get to."

  • "My fiance and I made reservations here for Valentine's Day. We booked early so there was no problem. We didn't have to wait very long to be seated and the service for the rest of the night was fairly quick as well. I was really impressed with our beer choices - Thank you! The food was fantastic. We started with the complimentary bread and butter and an order of the Polenta Fries. They were so good and came with a delicious Gorgonzola butter to dip them in. My fiance had the Gnocchi and I had the Chitarra, and both were really good. The portion size of the Gnocchi was a bit disappointing, but I was happy with mine, especially after the appetizers. We really enjoyed ourselves that night, and we hope to return soon. Thank you!"

  • "The food was exceptional. Utilizing local, fresh ingredients and making everything in house (including the pasta). Would highly recommend!"

  • "I really love the food and service. I like that the servers know the wines. It is over all a great place to dine."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Fabulous menu options; couldn't go wrong. The wait staff was attentive without being over bearing. Decarli seems like a restaurant you would find in downtown Portland, not downtown Beaverton. Glad to have something like this on the westside!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My wife and i ate at Decarli on Valentine's day and enjoyed a delicious meal. I had the short ribs, which were very tender and full of flavor. Even better than the short ribs I had at Portland City Grill recently, which is quite a compliment. Polenta fries were also excellent. My wife enjoyed her roasted chicken dish. Service was excellent. The restaurant is nicely designed and provides a pleasing atmosphere, but is a bit loud when busy. Wine list is pretty good, offers plenty of domestic and foreign choices, but is light on by the glass offerings. With alcohol and tip it's about a $75 per person dinner place, so a little on the spendy side, but worth it."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I've had dinner at Decarli several times and they never fail me - each meal has been great, from appetizers to desserts. Creative, ever changing menu, and a tasty choice of cocktails. A little noisy if you're looking for a quiet place for conversation, but perfect for small groups and celebrations."

  • "We love DeCarli's!! Don't get to go all that often, but definitely at the top of our list for special occasions or dinner with friends"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "This restaurant is a fantastic hidden gem in the heart of Beaverton. You walk in and you don't feel like you are in the suburbs at all and can easily compete with the hot restaurants in Downtown Portland. Aside from the great atmosphere, my husband and I were blown away by how delicious everything was that we ordered...especially the short-ribs. YOU NEED TO ORDER THE SHORT-RIBS! We also tried the Polenta fries, beet salad and I had the Toma Tuna. All of them well seasoned and equally delicious. We were also very happy with the service we received. Very pleasant and professional staff! All in all, would highly recommend this place. Great for date night or fun night out with friends."
