I was there for a birthday party for my wife, the pork chop was fantastic and her pasta was delicious. We definitely be going back.

Everything was good. Got a call from Decca about 7:55 that our table will not be ready until 8:30pm. Which is 39?mins after our booking and that there is no place to hang out there... we were just thinking of going somewhere else but they called at 8:05pm that our table was ready.That was a last min glitch. Dessert options were not that great. Rest everything was fine.

Very limited menu with too many restrictions. Staff not as knowledgeable or courteous for a similar class restaurant. Expensive and wine prices outrageous. Only one bottle of wine is priced under $100 and when we tried to order it they claimed they were out. Tried to order 3 glasses of $16/glass wine and again they claimed they are out and sold us $22 glasses! Disappointing.

Very pleasant dinner on the patio. My only complaint? A squirrel in the tree above us was 'cutting' nuts which fell upon us periodically. LOL.

Dining at Decca in the evening is like being on vacation. The patio is shaded by trees and atmospherically lighted. The staff are professional. The food is fresh and delicious and beautifully complex enough to be a dining experience we could not create at home. We felt safe and comfortable, with distanced tables and staff taking precautions. Highly recommended!

The food was exquisite; the menu perfectly flowed from appetizer to dessert and the preparation was flawless. They followed all the recommended CDC guidelines for safely eating out - servers/hostess wore masks and gloves, tables and chairs were sprayed after diners left and outside dining only (in a very well maintained and tastefully decorated courtyard). It was was one of the best meals I have had in the past two years. Highly recommend.

If you are a foodie, Decca will not disappoint. Although the menu is limited, every single dish that came to the table was outstanding. Fresh, local ingredients prepared to perfection. The outside dining area can't be beat. It is spacious, green lush surroundings and designed for privacy. Our server was knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. The drink and wine list was extensive and as creative as the food.

I had the smoked tomato linguine and my husband had the pork chop. Both were fabulous. Decca was recommended by the owner of the Airbnb that we stayed in while visiting Louisville. I would eat here over and over again.

We enjoyed our anniversary celebration dinner at Decca’s beautiful and tranquil outdoor patio. It was a much-needed change from the usual pandemic take-out. From our starter of fried green tomatoes (with tasty vinegary red tomato and feta goat cheese garnish) to our entrees of pappardelle and crispy salmon. The Rasteau wine that accompanied dinner was wonderful and well chose. We finished dinner with a German chocolate cake that was highlighted by a coffee chip ice cream. Lovey service was delivered by all the employees.

Celebrated a birthday on the most beautiful patio in
Louisville. The whole experience was as close to perfect
As a restaurant can get. Amelia was knowledgeable,
professional, fun. What a memorable night. Thank you,
Decca. (The pork Bologna’s should be against the law
It was so good. )

The food was incredible and so was the service! I also noticed they took social distancing and sanitizing seriously which I appreciated. We sat on the patio which we never had before, and it was a beautiful and serene environment. I’ve been to Decca several times before but I feel this was the best experience I’ve had. We will definitely be back soon!
