    EVERYTHING is First Rate... the food, the service and the decor. Our Server Freddy was AMAZING! Was there on Saturday, September 6th @ 5:30PM with my Hubby and boy did it fill up fast. Try the Meatball Sliders as an appetizer and finish off your meal with the Banana Caramel Cheesecake Xangos... YUMMY!!! Shout out to Samantha the Hostess!!!

    Service wasn't good... Our waiter was awkward and took forever to get us our food... Food did not taste good, it was bland and didn't taste fresh. The restaurant was clean but you can tell this is a place only for people to come after gambling at the stakes... I wouldn't recommend it.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. The service was impeccable and friendly. My filet was one of the best I have ever had. Even the vegetables and side dishes were amazing. Definitely ask to be seated by the fireplace, it adds a special touch to the evening. A very relaxing experience!

    Took a long time to get a reservation. If you call they never have a time that is convenient. If you use open table which I prefer there were no times available the day we wanted to go so we chose another day an according to open table there was onlt one time slot. We arrived early ti experience the bar and they sat us right away at 540 with a reservation of 6. Yhe same 7 tables were open our entire dinner. So not sure why they state there are mo other time slots when you call or go online. Qiite strange yet the food is the true experience. Amazing.

  • Decent Food, Mediocre Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/18/2013
    This was my second time at the restaurant. The first time I went with my husband (about 6 months ago) we had a great experience - the food was delicious and the service was excellent. That's why when I went again with a girlfriend recently I was so disappointed. The waiter was abrupt, unpersonable and checked in on us only once after we were pretty much done with our meals. If he was our waiter the first time I never would have gone back. Also, we ordered pasta and both our meals were just average. All this said, I would still recommend this place to a friend for a date night because the ambience is great. I would just cross my fingers that they get a better waiter and advise them to order the lamb like I did the first time.

    My wife ordered steak medium, it came out well done. Whe we told the waiter about it he proceeded to check his write up and said yes you ordered medium. The steak was well done. He comes around the table bends over to get a closer look at my wifes steak and says 'I see a tinge of pink in there'... and tries to walk away. We tell him she is not eating it and reluctently asks if we would like the cook to make another steak.

    Iv'e eaten at Deco about five or six times. Most of them Iv'e ordered the Tuna which was excellent but last night it was not good. They must have changed their supplier. It was tough, a little stringy and had a fishy taste. I hope they switch back. I'll give it one more chance. But if it's not good, I won't be going back.

    Dined on 9/4/2013
    Food is usually good. They were out of some items on the menu however which was disappointing. We had a 8:00pm reservation. We were told we needed to order around 8:30 because the kitchen was going to close. Well why do you accept 8:00pm reservations then for a party of 5 who will take at least 1.5 hours? All of our entrees were good. However upon paying the check we did not notice the gratuity was automatically applied and we tipped in addition. The server did not mention the grat was on there. When trying to get in contact with someone at the restaurant we just keep getting an answering machine. Been here once before and it was great. This time seemed to be a little off.

  • The restuarant was smaller
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 6/1/2013
    The restuarant was smaller than I envisioned. Beautiful art deco woodwork and a lovely fireplace. Food was very good as was the service. I would have given the service an "outstanding" rating but we had to wait too long for the waiter to return to the table for coffee refills and for the check. Unless you are starving, I recommend that you choose a "Primi" or "Secondi" course as your main dish. If the order both (pasta and main entre), it is too much food - especially if you order an appetizer and/or salad as well. This is not a family style serving but portions are large enough for two to share. The dessert menu is conserative. Standard pecan pie, apple pie, brownie, etc. All good but nothing "special".

    With the fireplace giving this place some real personality, we enjoyed waiting between courses just being mesmorized by the roaring fire. The home made mozzarella was outstanding, and a very generous portion taking up the entire plate. Likewise the fresh tuna, cooked/seared perfectly, and my short ribs pappardelle was enjoyable. The wine list not only was comprehensive, but very reasonably priced. We will be back!
