decarli restaurant is where rustic meets modern. Chef/owner, Paul DeCarli, pulls from his Swiss-Italian roots to create a menu that reflects his heritage as well as combine local Northwest ingredients. Polenta fries with gorgonzola butter, mussels in fennel-saffron cream sauce, and espresso-braised shortribs are just a few of the many "must-haves.” Soaring open beam ceilings with rustic brick walls add to the ambiance of this 1924 historic building.

Always a great time, service could not have been any better. Nice to see some favorites on the menu as well as some new ones. Pork shoulder was perfect and the peach upside down desert was nice and fresh. Don't miss the polenta fries. So glad to the restaurant so busy, and yet we still got in when we wanted and with only a days notice. Great job Paul and team! Keep it up see you again soon.

We always look forward to dinner at Decarli. They have deliciously creative dishes you won't find in other places and a great ambiance. I would definitely recommend ordering an appetizer, entree, and dessert to have the full dining experience.

We have been to Decarli's a few times and this experience was just OK. The food for me was average and lacked real flavor. Decarli's is probably one of the better restaurants in Beaverton, but to be honest, if you have a bit more time, there are many better options in Portland. Overall, this experience was just average. Since we live in Beaverton, we will likely be back, but probably more for their happier hour.

We had the spaghetti and meatballs, delicioso! Chilled soup of cucumber, melon, basil, creamed fraiche and chili oil was good for the hot weather, but not one of their best soups (of which they have many). Polenta fries are always a favorite. One of our favorite restaurants anywhere.

This was my first time here and it was great. I love the elegant but non snobbish feel of the place. I am from Los Angeles and this place would have fit right in but I love that Beaverton did it right for the locals.
Place is absolutely beautiful with all the low Edison lights surrounding the place and the intimate candles on the table adding more glow to the place.
The food was so good. Nothing was too generic but it also wasn't too fancy where you weren't quite sure what it was. Great balance of food people knew with a little touch of classy.
The dessert was to die for!!! If you are a group of four or more try 3 to 4 dessert options. There will be enough of you to finish them all. But if you must choose 1 or 2...pick the smore
And the salted caramel cheesecake. I'm sorry...I just can't narrow it down to one! Lol
So if you're looking for a fancy romantic dinner, social celebration, family time, or just looking for a spot to sit and eat...it doesn't matter the reason, this is a great place to stop.
Wear flip flops and a hat (which is what I wore), jeans and a nice shirt, or a blazer and a dress...its PORTLAND people, everyone is accepted!!!! Enjoy!

The food was excellent. Our server was extremely friendly, knowledgable, and helpful with wine and food selection, however she was stretched pretty thin, so we waited awhile for our drinks. The noise level was high as the restaurant was full, so keep this in mind if you are dining with those that are hard of hearing (we were). Overall, I was extremely happy with the meal, ambiance and service.

The food and drink were amazing as always. It is pricey, but for a special occasion worth it. I felt like the waitstaff was overwhelmed and felt rushed, we had to ask for bread 3 times. We ordered cocktails, appetizers, salads, and main courses, we felt the service wasn't up to par with previous visits. No one was rude and the service wasn't bad, I felt like the timing was off, it took forever for bread, and all the salads came out at different times. We were seated by one of the front windows so the noise level was better than usual. I recommend that spot for a party of 6.

My husband and I went to decarli for our second anniversary. We had never been, but it got good reviews on Google. I'm SO glad we went! The food is amazing: fresh (including homemade pasta!) and local. The portions were perfect. And, since I'd included a note via Open Table that this was our anniversary, they gave us some complimentary dessert wine and a scoop of gelato.
We absolutely loved this place -- everything from the food, to the service, to our special anniversary treatment -- and will go back for sure!
One thing to note: As some Google reviews said, it can be a bit loud when the place is crowded (it's mostly a wooden interior, with high ceilings), but if you can get over that then you should definitely give it a try! It will be a place we enjoy for years to come.

Loved the short ribs, and the chicken liver pate. Everything was quite good, but it was very noisy. We met friends with whom we dine out often, and we agreed that this was a place we will return to, and recommend to others, primarily because of the food and service.

My only disappointment was that when I booked this reservation I added a note that this was a birthday dinner celebration and asked for something with a candle at the end of the meal. That note was not acknowledge in any way.

We love this restaurant except for its noise. Service is impeccable and our latest waitress introduced us to our new fav, Basel Cellars 2011 claret. Hard to choose between food favorites like prosciutto pizza or short ribs/spaetzl.

Always a great experience at Decarli's. Had a business meeting and the service was attentive, the food great, and the wine list good. You can never go wrong with the short ribs. You don't need a knife to eat these short ribs. I would recommend this place for any meal and make sure you make a reservation.

Great food as always exceptional service. Decarli is definitely one of the nicest restaurants in Beaverton. The brick walls and wood ceilings make for a louder atmosphere. So if you are looking for a quiet romantic setting make your reservation later in the evening after the peek dining times. Be sure not to park in the lots in Beaverton (where they have posted signs) they WILL tow your car. Park on the side streets.

I thought everything about the food was excellent - from presentation to taste etc.
Parking was difficult at 7:15 pm Saturday. For us (over 62) the noise level was tough. Our waitress might have had the same issue as she missed our drink order which was a long time coming and the service seemed slow...
