Decca has an extremely interesting menu that explores flavor profiles that are uncommon for this area. If that's something you would appreciate then Decca is definitely worth a shot.

My husband and I ate there on a Wed night. We ordered several courses. Everything was delicious! I loved the toast w beets and so did my husband even though he doesn’t like beets. We also had salads, a middle pasta dish, and the salmon and chicken entrees. DH usually leaves upscale restaurants hungry so we made sure to get plenty. Oh and we also split a dessert. This was enough and next time I will not order so much. Only downside was there was too much time in between courses. We were there 2 1/2 hrs and it was too long.
I would have liked to see a good vegan entree. There was hardly options for that.

We absolutely loved our anniversary dinner at Decca. Highlights were (1) great, friendly service and (2) the mussels. These were the freshest, most tender, tastiest mussels we've ever had. Got the meal off to a great start. Great experience; highly recommended.

Took my girlfriend here for our 1 year anniversary, was very pleasantly surprised! The service was great, our waitress was extremely personable, and WITHOUT even asking they brought out champagne for us to celebrate and made me look like a hero! The food was outstanding and if the weather is nice I would highly recommend eating outside. Very relaxing, modern, classy, and distinct atmosphere. I will be back no doubt! Thank you Decca for making the experience memorable and the date that much more special! See you soon!

The food was good although it took over an hour to get our mains. A manager came over to apologize and offered us to cover our bill. We declined as we wanted to pay, she offered complimentary deserts instead, we accepted. When the bills came we were charged for all items including our deserts, and she never came to check in again and so we kept quiet no wanting to create a more awkward situation.

Decca is not about food. We all need food to live. But, there is more to the dining experience than simply taking in food so we can live another day.

Decca is about subtlety of flavors. About variety. About freshness. Ambiance. Service. And, ultimately, a wonderful experience. Pleasure.

Are you looking for a meal out of the ordinary? For a special occasion? Or just for the love of food? Come to Decca.

Best steak I've ever had. Service was so professional and courteous. We got a patio table nestled right next to the fountain and it offered us privacy that we hadn't expected. My husband, my mom, and her boyfriend were celebrating my passing the last of my CPA exams and honestly, I can't exactly tell how much of the enjoyment I got from being done with my 2 years of studies and how much was due to the luxe experience that was Decca. But it was probably the best meal I've ever had and I had the best of times that night!

I love decca! I still do but we did have to wait a ridiculous time for our food. They may have forgotten about us. When it came it was fabulous,except dessert, but it was a little embarrassing because I had several work clients with me. I’ll probably stick to date night here, nothing for work. The desserts don’t match the rest of the food. Not exciting! Need some more gf options for dessert as well.

In from Los Angeles with a group of 6 for Derby week. The surrounds were stunning (seated on the patio). Prix Fixe menus seem to be standard for Derby weekend. Amongst our group we probably selected the gamut of the offerings. Without exception, each item was superbly presented and prepared. Love the low key/casual attitude coupled with the excellence in food, service and atmosphere. Everyone was impressed. Thank you Decca, we will be back!

The only reason I didn’t give a five star review is because the hostess was totally unaccommodating. Even though we had reservations she refused to seat our party of 13 close together. She insisted on seating 4 of our party completely on the other side of the restaurant because of “other reservations” and then the four top table beside us never got seated. It was ridiculous and there was no reason for it. She was on some kind of power trip or something. She spoke of full reservations but the restaurant never filled up the entire time we were there. Everything else was great.

This is definitely a great spot for an intimate date night. You will not be disappointed. The food is amazing and one of a kind. From the starters to the dessert the food was well prepared and refreshing. The staff you can tell have been well trained. My cup of water was always full. If you are concerned with mixed drinks they have something for everyone. My recommendation is the Gold rush and it paired well with the pork dish. Give yourself time to look around the neighborhood before your meal. It is prime Louisville location. Bring your wallet! This is pricey but well worth it! A complete experience to enjoy with company.
