Get the mussels - best I have ever had (outside of Belgium)! Service was excellent. Great menu selection compared to other restaurants near them.

Beautiful space, delicious food, and attentive service. Risotto was slightly over-salted but quite good. Other dishes and side dishes were nicely prepared and well presented. My biggest complaint is the stingy wine pours. Otherwise, we enjoyed our evening and would return.

Have been here several times. The kitchen is consistently great, using local seasonal ingredients with inventive composition and tastes. We happened to be there on Thursday for half off wines so we were able to take advantage of the well crafted wine list. Superior service as always

Overall it was a good experience. The only let down was that the mussels we received were less than fresh. A real disappointment as the flavor of the dish itself was amazing. Cocktails were delicious and steak was very nicely cooked. Next time I’ll try to save room for dessert.

We chose Decca on the recommendation of a local friend - we were in town just for one night. The patio was beautiful, with a bonfire going, and we were seated as soon as we arrived. The server was great and in fact all seemed perfect - until we tried to cut into the pork chop and it was totally raw inside. As was the ribeye. And while the manager eventually came and apologized and took both away, our dinner overall was disrupted and and half of us finished at that point. Very frustrating that the kitchen was so incompetent and the manager so slow to respond. The rest of the food was just ok. I’d go back for drinks outside, but not dinner.

A friend from home recommended Decca and we were not disappointed. Our first impression came from the fire pit lit garden with gurgling water feature by the entrance. . We knew this was gong to be a special dining experience! Our server was skillful, knowledgeable and attentive and her desert recommendations were spot on. We shared several starters (mussels and roasted carrots) and enjoyed pasta small plates.

We ordered the steak tartare, chicken dish as well as pork chop and everything was way over salted. The tartare was so salty we couldn’t eat it. We love decca and it must have been a rare situation that evening.

Great place and the food was delicious! The Beef Tartare was my favorite, though I feel the beef portion was on the small side. Would definitely return

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.

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!

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.

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.
