In town to explore Kentucky. We enjoyed every bit of our time at Decca.

Very inconsistent. Some dishes were very good, but some really were not. Our grilled Napa cabbage starter was so salty and so acidic that it was downright bracing and difficult to get through. While the lamb papperdelle was very good. Also, the flavors on the menu were a bit all over the place. Nothing about it felt cohesive. Finally, wait times between courses were very long, even though it was anything but crowded (there were only 3 other tables dining with us on a Thursday night). We had a nice time, but overall it wasn't quite the dining experience we hoped for.

This was an excellent venue for a business dinner. Our guest from Montreal was impressed with the total experience. The chicken and Salmon were nothing short of amazing.

Best food we've had in 2019. The Green Curry Mussels and the Pork Rib Chop were outstanding. Great bourbon selection with great cocktails.

The food was superb. However the linguini was a tad on the salty side. Not enough to mention at the table but enough to mention on OpenTable

Decca is one of our "go to" places for special family events. Their service is attentive without being overbearing. The food quality is always wonderful and the presentation takes them over the top. We'll be back!

Great food, drinks and service. A creative menu executed well.

The atmosphere in the courtyard is just right. Fried green tomatoes and risotto are both delicious. Bigger portions than I expected, so I had lunch for the next day as well. The Chateauneuf-du-Pape that the sommelier recommended was incredible, and it was half-price wine night. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Excellent dining experience.

Good food, good locally sourced raw materials and simple yet elegant presentation. Outdoor seating very beautiful. In a hip neighborhood. Menu needs a little more variety and banquete seating is very uncomfortable.

We had a beautiful evening to sit out on the patio. We had the salmon that was outstanding. The sugar snap peas were phenomenal. Had a nice spicy kick to them. We had a French Pinot at half price that was delicious. Server was great. We truly enjoyed the evening. We will be back.

We had a world class meal at Decca a year ago and we were really excited to come back. The middles on the menu were the stars, our table ordered all three. I also really enjoyed the snap pea side dish. The heirloom tomato with flatbread was delicious, but there weren't many flatbread triangles given or ricotta. We wanted to take our time and order courses as we were finished with the previous course. Our waiter didn't want us to do that because of time, but the restaurant was never full over the course of the evening so I'm not sure why the rush in ordering all courses at once. One diner ordered the chicken dish, which was outstanding, my salmon was okay. It was perfectly cooked, but there were so many things on it, that I tasted dill and tahini, not much else. Another diner ordered the pork chops and it turned out pretty fatty. The peach sorbet was delicious and tasted like pure bright concentrated peach flavor. The buttermilk pie was kind of bland.

The food was all super good, though slow between courses. Our main took so long the waitress came to apologize and said it was just coming out of the oven...but by the time it hit our table it was cold so who knows... Good flavor, though, and the snap peas we're amazing! Staff was understanding when we explained the situation with our main course

Awesome dining experience from beginning to end. All 3 cocktails we had were well crafted, each dish took a high level of creativity and execution. Our server was knowledgeable and gave us the experience we were looking for without rushing us, and a big thank-you to Nathan, the events’ manager to make our night a little extra special. Well done, everyone!

The layout of the restaurant accomodates interior and exterior dining. We choose outside and enjoyed the garden patio effect. Our food was tasty and of good quality except for the pork chop. It was very fatty and we felt we did not get our money's worth.
Wait staff were pleasant and attentive.

Great service. Our friends really appreciated the Mocktail selection since they’re choosing to limit alcoholic beverages. Food selections and presentation all excellent. Entrees took a little long to arrive after appetizers. Seating on the long upholstered bench can be uncomfortably low vs the height of the table and the chairs opposite. Someone really goofed up when designing that bench height.

We have a lovely meal at Decca. We particularly liked the Crispy salmon and chicken entrees. We followed that with the triple chocolate delight - devil's food cake, mouse and chocolate ice cream. Nice area on Market Street and very good service.

We enjoyed a late dinner outside on their patio. It was a lovely atmosphere for a quiet dinner. We shared a dish from each portion of the menu, with the fried green tomatoes and the shrimp as favorites, the mint in the tomatoes was a special treat. Everything tasted so fresh, it was delicious. Our server did seem eager to get us through our meal, but again, it was a late dinner so perhaps that was the reason. I would definitely return if in Louisville again.
