The White Bull was excellent in every area. I was very impressed with the knowledge the waiters had about the different ingredients in each dish, while making sure you had no allergies to anything included. All the food was very fresh and each dish was as unique. The restaurant itself was lovely while providing a very friendly atmosphere. I will definitely go there again and I highly recommend it. A unique dining experience.

Great night! We arrived a little early and sat at the bar, super friendly staff that took our drink orders. As our reservation time approached, we decided to eat at the bar instead of taking a table.

They went out of their way by preparing an order of spoon bread for us - even though it was not on the menu that night. That was followed by oysters and black spaghetti- everything was superb. Consistently great drinks, food and service.

We loved our meals and enjoyed our desserts. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the staff was on top of our needs. The only thing I’d mention is that it was pretty dark in there and I saw several tables using their cellphones to illuminate the menu .

10/10 dining experience. Our waiter, Elijah, was super informative and friendly. I had the black spaghetti, shrimp, chorizo, jalapeno, tomato which was SO delicious and my girlfriend had a beet pasta that was exquisite. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I dined at White Bull on New Year's Eve. We live in the neighborhood, so it was a no-brainer ... without a doubt the best restaurant in Decatur. But the experience exceeded our expectations. The setting was festive, the staff were accommodating, the service was excellent, and the food was outstanding. I have never had scallops anywhere (and I travel frequently for my job, in and outside the US) that could hold a candle. And the poached swordfish was amazing. There was a wine pairing that we did not opt for, but I wish I had. The price was right. On the walk home we reflected an a perfect New Year's Eve celebration.

This place is a gem!! From the service to the inventive cocktails and surreal food - it is consistently excellent.

Can’t say enough about White Bull - The hummus, black spaghetti and the egg nog cocktail - wow...just wow!!!

You should really, really eat your next meal out at The White Bull. Of course the pasta is wonderful, but honestly ALL the food, the drinks (the bartender must be mixing magic in!) & the service (warm, attentive) are so. dang. good. We've been several times now & this visit was the best it's ever been.

The Feast of the Seven Fishes is a mark-it-on-your-calendar annual event the last week before Christmas. Don't miss this! The house-made pasta (from flours milled in-house), and other farm-to-table ingredients set this restaurant above similar Italian joints. Treat your friends and family to a polenta party, and they'll love you forever. The service is excellent; the ambiance is chic and modern, but warm and inviting.

I have always had a good experience here. This time I have to say it didn’t rock my world. My brunch was a hash and the sweet potatoes still having the skins on was kind of unpleasant. There was a lot of fat and sauce and didn’t feel like much meat in the dish. My family had the brunch burgers and while in the past they were outstanding, something had changed with the way they were made and with a regular old slice of American cheese on top made it feel less special. The chocolate torte was brick-like. I had just come to expect much better from this establishment.

As soon as we were seated, the waiter told us that we needed to order right away because the restaurant was going to be busy and we needed us to eat quickly so they could seat others. He continued to badger us about ordering. Once, I asked him to come back in 10 minutes. He came back In maybe 2 minutes. I asked him ‘was that 10 minutes?

Had such a nice meal at White Bull. The pakora and pastas were fabulous and I can't wait to try other dishes on the next visit. Cocktails are boozy but with unique flavors and the service was excellent. My only regret is that we were a attending a show at Eddie's Attic and didn't have time for dessert - next time!

This place is very charming and cozy. Our server was adorable and very knowledgeable. The food we had was very tasty....BUT! Don’t call yourself farm to table and then not have a single salad on the menu or even any sides that are vegetable....we craved and missed the fresh crunch and vitality that more veg brings to a meal.

This was my 2nd time here. The first time the hostess tried to sit us by the bathroom even though we had a reservation and there was another open table. However after insisting on moving, the experience was excellent. So I arranged to meet friends here. This experience was much less enjoyable. From the lack of a Chardonnay on the wine list, to upcharging $5 on a vodka martini (from Tito’s to Belvedere) without letting us know and ending with bringing out ice cream dessert for one person, 10-15 minutes ahead of bringing other desserts out. The food was excellent, but it was an overall mess.

All four of us had a different pasta dish and all were terrific. The bread service and special spread were also delicious. What sets this restaurant apart is the more intimate atmosphere and fantastic service.

The menu is delicately chosen based on the season’s best offerings and the chef does an amazing job at preparing the food accordingly. The wine pairings were perfect and so was the ambiance. Definitely a “must experience” if you’re in downtown Decatur.
