    I am so sad that Decca is closing. The food was absolutely incredible, as was the service. My friends and I split two different pasta dishes and the burger. Everything was delicious! The portions are not large for the price, but the flavor is so amazing! The outdoor patio is beautiful and our server was so knowledgeable!!

    Overall it was a good meal but not sure I would go back. Everything is individually plated so to have a well rounded meal you need several plates. The quality is amazing, it can just add up. Our waitress was lovely. On the other hand the bartender who greeted us as we came in looked irritated we were there and the pour on our drinks was very meager. For a $15 cocktail I would have expected a little more.

    It was bittersweet. After being in NuLu for over 10 years, Decca is closing at the end of September (23Sep2022). This was our final dining experience. As always, it was very memorable. The food and wine were exceptional. I believe Decca has the best wine list in Louisville. The food is always unique and delicious. The decor, atmosphere, and service are the best. We will truly miss it. We sincerely hope they reopen at a new location in Louisville soon.

    Decca has been one of our go-to special restaurants since we moved to town about 10 years ago, and we were sad to hear that it will be closing at the end of September. So we went for dinner for maybe the last time. As always, their cocktail game is top notch, and we enjoyed a leisurely dinner out on the upstairs veranda overlooking the garden. One of their special starters, a stone fruit dish with sweet corn and some kind of whipped ricotta-like cheese, was absolutely to die for, and the half chicken with calabrian chiles was flavorful and delicious. Our server helped us pick out a really interesting Hungarian dessert wine that topped off the meal perfectly. Go before it closes forever!

    Decca did not disappoint! The food was fantastic, I was seriously impressed by this establishment. Our server was such a kind and patient gentleman dealing with 3 indecisive ladies. He offered samples and really helped walk us through our wine decision. He was very knowledgeable about the food and recommendations were spot on as well! I don't think I can pick a favorite dish but the stars for me were the beets, snap peas and bucatini. We also had the olives, chicken and pork chop, all were lovely as well. Do not skip the desert, almond Olive oil cake was out of this world.

    We had an excellent experience last night. We've been struggling to find a restaurant in the louisville area that we thoroughly enjoyed start to finish. The food was fantastic. We want to really give a shoutout to Anna (maybe Annie), our server. She was the star of the experience. You could tell she wasn't a typical person that's been in the hospitality industry for a long time ... she genuinely cared about our experience and was a true pleasure to meet. Thank you Anna for 10/10 experience!

    We had the stone fruit salad and burgers. They were great though it did take a while to get our food. For example, we got our food and decided to order an extra burger. Took 20 minutes for that burger. We had our kids with us. No kids menu. Only option was buttered noodles which were great. Not really any drink options for kids. Our server was nice and attentive but a little irritated that we had kids with us.

    We had such a wonderful evening! The patio was gorgeous and set the perfect tone. The service was wonderful and the food and drinks were absolutely delicious… spectacular in fact! This would be all 5 stars and then some except that the portions were quite small, especially for the prices. The pasta we ordered was AMAZING but just a few bites for $28. We shared an appetizer, the pasta, the delicious broccoli ($25 broccoli?!) and 2 desserts + a cocktail and while we were satisfied, we weren’t full!!! So beautiful and so delicious…guess we just wanted a little more! Thank you for the beautiful evening

    We loved it! Started with olives and cocktails -all good! Bucatini with corn and jalapeños was fabulous. Chicken and potatoes for our main course. Wow! The chicken is comparable to Jonathan Waxman’s. The staff brought us a small dessert to cap the night. Only regret is not booking a table outside - the patio looked very inviting.

    We went to Decca for my birthday. We sat at our table for 15 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order because the sever wasn’t told she had a table inside. When we sat down, we had asked the hostess about wine bottle prices. She walked away to go find the answer and never came back. The food was good but a glass of wine is $17 dollars and a bottle is 4x that making it basically the same price as a class for 4 people. I’ve never been to a restaurant where it’s the same price to buy a bottle as a glass… After our sever knew we were there, she was great but I’m not sure we’d be back for the price.
