Decca is the first place I think of when I want to take friends out for excellent food, service and ambience. I always recommend the mussels and have never been disappointed. Lately the rib eye is my go to. Sides are always spot on and the portions are perfect. A great place to celebrate any event.

It is a nice Place. Service was excellent. Wine selection was very expensive. We ordered by the glass.

We absolutely loved Decca! We sat outside for dinner which was so nice since we are from San Francisco and that doesn't happen much here. All the items we ordered were beautifully prepared and presented. I am in the love with the wood roasted broccoli! Nice wine list and the service was lovely.

The drinks were great and the Roma Crunch salad was amazing! It was probably one of the best salads I’ve ever had! I also ordered the shrimp with charred cauliflower which was just ok. The presentation was nice but the chorizo was over cooked and the cauliflower had more of a burnt than charred flavor that over powered the dish. The service was average and had to flag down my server to order another beverage after sitting for 10 minutes with an empty drink. I’ll definitely give it another try, as this was only my second time at Decca and the first time dining there was fantastic.

Bar service downstairs was not up the level set but every other aspect of the restaurant - presumptuous and slightly passive aggressive. Might be fine for a nightspot, but not a fine dining establishment.

Fantastic meal. Our server was knowledgeable and kind. We shared a starter, a middle, and a main. We had the mussels (obviously) and wow, so good. Then we had the cavatelli with rabbit. Again, yum. Finally we tried the crispy Texas redfish. Everything was so well prepared and very unique. We had coffee and the chocolate cake for dessert. Yum yum yum! Wish we could go again. We also got a bottle of wine, and our bill was super reasonable. Thanks, Decca, for a lovely date.

We had a wonderful experience at Decca! The food was creatively prepared with fresh ingredients. Our server, Chris, was well-informed about the menu, made good recommendations based on our meal preferences and was able to suggest a wine selection that complimented the meal. One of our best recent dining experiences for a date night.

We had a wonderful meal with friends. We were seated upstairs which was less noisy than the main level dining room. The mushroom risotto was exceptional! We shared a bottle of wine from the decent but reasonably priced wine list. The bib salad was so-so. We had excellent service throughout the meal and enjoyed the live jazz in the lower level bar.

Delicious dinner, there was not one dish we tasted that was not executed fantastically. We had mussels, the Brussel and kale salad, crispy redfish, and broccoli and sweet potatoes to share. All of the flavors were very well thought out. I will be visiting again the next time I am in Louisville.

This is our 4th time to Decca and it was by far our worst time. The Prixe Fix Valentines menu was fantastic! The food was exceptional. The service however was not nearly up to the standard that we have normally had. Our waitress was not very friendly and was not very attentive either. We had to waited forever to get our drinks replenished when finally a manager (I assume) was able to get us take care of. After taking our order our waitress was no where to be found until it was time to bring us the check. Again this not what we have become used to at Decca, so I wanted to go ahead and write this review.

Consistently excellent! You can count always on Decca serving wonderful food. While the dishes are sophisticated, they are not fussy or contrived. Attention is paid to using high quality ingredients. While there are some staples, they do change it up. The woodfire grilled items are particularly outstanding. We really loved our waiter this time too.

The atmosphere was up to par! The bar area downstairs had a speak easy feel and a fire pit just outside the dining area made this a great neighborhood find for all types of those seeking to have a relaxing dinner. Small menu but big tastes! If you do something well you don’t need options or variations! My colleagues and I look forward to our next trip to Louisville to visit DECCA and it’s friendly staff of servers!
