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.

We went to Louisville to celebrate a birthday. When we entered the restaurant, my dining companion was wished a Happy Birthday. Thank you for remembering that detail. I loved the fact that 80’s music was playing. Our server was very attentive and professional. We started with the Duck Liver Terrine and the Bibb Lettuce Salad. Both generous portions, both equally delicious. Our entrees were the Pork Chop and the Crispy Salmon. I loved my salmon which sat on top of butter beans. Delicious and cooked perfectly. I snuck a taste of the pork chop. Really good. Dessert was the Cardamom Ice Cream Sandwich and Buttermilk Pie. Delicious ending to a great meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Decca.

We ate on the terrace which is our preference because its much quieter out than inside. It is a beautiful terrace and the food and service are always exceptional.

The food was good but not fabulous. Our server was lovely but about halfway through the meal she disappeared. The coffee was finished long before a very sad dessert was delivered. We won't be back.

The fried green tomatoes were unbelievable. Overall very helpful service and generous gift of a dessert for our anniversary. Environment was hip but casual, comfortable. A bit expensive for some of the dishes, but overall tasty.
Strong, bold flavors.

This is one of the worst places I have been to. I was looking forward to sitting in the outdoor garden. I asked if it was buggy and was told no. After beating eaten alive I said something and was given bug spray. I have allergies and asked our waitress if she could accommodate me and she was very rude and told me “no substitutions”. The icing on the cake is all four of us ordered vodka. It had a horrible bourbon aftertaste like they did not wash their glassware appropriately. Sufficed to say I will not return.

We celebrated our sons graduation for residency and sat on the veranda. It would have been nice to have fans out there as it was very warm even after 7:30. The food was great but our waitress had no personality and never had a smile on her face - never asked about our meal or anything. If we needed something we had to ask. She did not want to be there. It’s amazing how a good server can elevate your dining experience.

From the reviews I had read I expected more. The food was not bad, just not anything special. It was a little on the pricey side for the portion sizes. We sat inside. The tables were very close together so no private conversations. The guy next to me bold our table over with his cologne. The patio dining looked more inviting. If you go request this.

It was our first visit and we definitely will go back. The food was delicious. The Salmon is the best I’ve had in Louisville. My husband had the clam linguini and said it was great with exception that it was very salty.

Decca always satisfies. Their food is never less than excellent, the presentation beautiful and the service impeccable. They offer interesting house drinks and a very nice wine list. A place for both special occasions and very fine mid-week dinner.

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.
