Food was delicious. We shared the burger & a pasta. One of our favorite burgers.
Really great bartender downstairs. All the staff is super cheerful and helpful. Great food and service!
We loved everything about Decca. The food and the service were both exceptional.
We eat there often It was great as usual. Service was great on a snowy night
Always a great experience with excellent food.
Amazing taste creativity for each dish in the menu. Each item that we ordered had something that pleased us in a unique, surprising way.
Good Ribeye better than Ruth Chris. Great jazz downstairs
The food at Decca was so flavorful and well prepared. We were on a very restricted diet and they accommodated us beautifully. The only complaint I have is that we were seated very close to the neighboring party. Almost to the point where our conversation didn’t feel very private.
Great option would return anytime I find myself in Louisville
We’d missed Decca while they were gone and were happy to find that they didn’t miss a beat. The service, drinks and food were outstanding as always. The staff are friendly, accommodating and attentive. This is a great restaurant and we looking forward to returning as often as possible.
The menu is light due to covid, but the items on the menu are all excellent.
I think we tried almost everything on the menu. The small plates were the best. I do not believe I have had carrots as delicious as these, and I have had some pretty good roasted carrots. The beets were so tasty with just a hint of earthiness. We also had the potatoes, olives, charred octopus, ribeye, salmon and fresh pasta. We passed on dessert because we were stuffed. .
Amazing! Our favorite cocktail was “The Shoop” but “Lip Service” was great as well! The charred carrots were delicious, the agnolotti was perfect and the burger I got was mouth watering!!! Couldn’t have had a more perfect experience, thank you!
We visit family in Louisville twice a year and Decca is always the food highlight of our trips.
Grouper and red peas not as flavorful as hoped. Beets dish was excellent. Experienced some moderate stomach distress for ~1/2 hour after eating this, but subsided after that. No bread provided...should at least be a small plate menu item.
Simply great food, excellent service and a cute atmosphere. The little “grotto bar” downstairs is adorable. This is our new fav!
The food is SO good! Small portions but everything we ate was so delicious and worth every penny. Highly recommend!
We had a really lovely New Year’s dinner here. The menu was delicious, especially the pumpkin soup and the rabbit pasta. Wine pairings were great and we enjoyed the pound cakes for dessert, especially the ganache! The service was outstanding! Everything done just as it should be in a nice restauran. Everything arrived on time, and placed at the correct diner, silverware deftly replaced, timely but never rushed. We felt very pampered and well cared for. Great way to end the year. We will be back!!
Great food and atmosphere. We will be going back.
Salmon crudo and duck were phenomenal! Loved the wine pairings and our server was excellent.
Had dinner here the first night in Louisville. Nulu district is so fun and artsy. The architecture and detailing of the floor up to the ceiling and his restaurant is so visually appealing. Lot of character and style. The lounge was super swanky with leather, velvet and wood. Cocktails were delicious. Our server was great, however they were short staffed, and we had to wait a few times for a drinks - but other staffed came to help out. A must try for culinary experience!
Fantastic meal. The cauliflower entree sticks out as one of the best vegetarian meals we’ve had in a long time. Highly appreciate the inclusion of sophisticated zero proof cocktails on the drink menu.
Party of 2. When we arrived we were told that we had to have a vaccination card and wear a mask to the table which was never stated on their website. Funny that only one of us had their card and they still seated both of us. The menu was sparse and we ordered the olives, carrots, potatoes and octopus. The olives came out un-pitted and when we asked, we were told that's how they serve them with no mention on the menu or offer to pit them. There were two halves of a carrot. I will NEVER go back to this place. Server was nice and did a good job but I don't know why anyone would dine there.
Great food and an fantastic experience!
We had a wonderful meal at Decca. The food was amazing! The burger was perfect, and my husband said the salmon was the best he’s ever had! Highly recommend!
Our group of 6 had a wonderful evening at Decca. We were able to enjoy our cocktails outside around the fire pit. When we were seated we found the service to be excellent and the food even better. We would definitely return and would highly recommend to others!
Absolutely loved eating here. One of my favorite places in the city
Wonderful restaurant. We had a nice table on the second floor. Service was excellent. A little too noisy.
The restaurant does amazing vegetables. The charred carrots are a must have. The potatoes and beets a close second. The mixed greens, even, were splendid. A great place for vegetarians.
We steered clear of meat, but look forward to it on another occasion. We did have the shrimp cannelloni, which was was superb. One of the best dishes I’ve ever had.
The Mexican chocolate tart was inspired. The lime Chantilly was delicious. The crust was just on the edge of too-salty, but I’d order the dessert again.
Excellently prepared dishes with memorable flavors.
food was good, but limited variety on menu
Warm and friendly service that went above and beyond, everything we ate and drank was delicious. Wonderful experience!
The wait staff and food were incredible!
Decca is very nicely decorated and we appreciated the lighting and candle on the table! The food was delicious and our server was outstanding! We had a wonderful evening!
Charming, good service, menu was a little limited but good.
Decca is a long-time favorite of ours, but we hadn't been back since the start of the pandemic. It always has had great ambiance and service and that hasn't changed. (The beautiful outdoor patio -- with the firepit-- was busy the night we were there, too.) We had the charred octopus, which was delicious, and the drinks were excellent (including one of their "mocktails"). The owners are taking everyone's safety seriously, which provided a measure of reassurance and really allowed us to enjoy the evening.
I loved everything we ordered to eat. The Salmon was a surprising hit and the pastas were excellent. I was a bit disappointed with the fig cocktail I ordered and the seating was a bit awkward. All of this can be forgiven for the meal itself. I would definitely go again when I am in town!
Such a beautiful and delicious restaurant. Service was excellent!
One of the best restaurants from the kitchen to the ambiance we get to experience. Always excited to go back! Love this place.
