Joseph Decuis Ratings and Reviews
The experience overall was pleasant, as the décor was on point, and the ambience of the restaurant pleased. That being said, our server dropped the ball on a few occasions; combined with the uniqueness of the food offerings, I felt as if I would of enjoyed a premium meal elsewhere. Certainly the Wagyu beef sliders were the highlight of the night, as they melted in my mouth. Combined with the zucchini bread and fresh butter, the appetizers hit the spot. The meal itself was entirely adequate. I got the chicken, and while tasty, it took some work getting the meat off the chicken leg. The vegetables were pickled, which is not my cup of tea, but tasted decent. My date purchased the Sea bass, which was a little on the salty side (she disagreed) and the potatoes she asked for on the side differed from the small red potatoes I got (which were divine) and seemed quite dry. With that exception, I would have preferred her vegetables, as their preparation was much more to my liking. I don't plan on returning again unless it's to have those Wagyu sliders, as most of the entrees were outside of what I was comfortable eating, and asking for something I wanted seemed to be too much of a hassle to change.
Delicious food and relaxing atmosphere. The wine list is extensive with a wisely selection of wine, the outdoor setting is very romantic at night, and the service is almost perfect. I enjoyed the fresh bread, and even more when I dump it in the melting beef rendered fat that was brought to the table in a candle shape (genius). My friends and I shared appetizers and dessert but I will come back to try out one of the entrees.
I am a big fan of dessert so I was a little disappointed with the limited dessert selection.
They are rated the number one restaurant on Open Table in Indiana for a reason. They are a unique, farm to table, gourmet restaurant with an extensive wine list. They grow all their food including the Wagyu beef and organic chicken. It you don't live in the area it would be wise to stay on their farm which is an excellent B&B.
This was our first visit to JD. While we enjoyed all the food very much, our favorites were probably the pork board and squash blossoms. Unfortunately, both my husband and I were not THAT impressed by the beef. It was good. We just weren't sure we'd be able to pick it out of a lineup!
I ordered a $45 rib tip - I was literally server two minuscule pieces of meat that would have both fit in my mouth at the same time. (My wife got the same thing - also two small pieces of meat).
Had I known the smallness of the portion I would have never ate at this place.
Biggest dining ripoff I ever experienced.
My husband and I went for our anniversary. 1 glass of wine, 1 beer, 1 appetizer, 2 entrées, 1 dessert= $100.00 before tip. Totally worth it. I had the duck and it was so good. Tender, not greasy and the blueberry sauce was perfect with it. I could detail everything we ordered but I'll sum it up by saying it was all great. No prices on the menu but we did stay away from their steaks because we knew they were very expensive. I read a review that said elegant casual dress code (no jeans, etc) didn't see it posted anywhere but I would say that seemed accurate.
We went for our 5 year anniversary. They made us custom menus. The servers was amazing. She was very helpful. Food was amazing BEST STEAK EVER. The actual owner was in there dining and came up to and asked how was our meal and had a nice little conversation with us. Definitely worth it. 5 stars across the board.
This was our first time at this restaurant and the food was outstanding! I also need to compliment our waiter Nick as he was well versed in the menu and wine. He privided great recommendations and did well In his timing to check in us and pour is additional wine. We really enjoyed the experience! Beautiful place inside as well!
This was a fixed price Easter lunch that we have attended in the past. The service was outstanding , the setting was beautiful but the food was disappointing. I feel that the quality has slipped over the past years. My frittata was overcooked - I have had a better one at Bob Evans. The first courses were very good but both of the mains were not up to par and the beignets were doughy in the middle. A lovely place but not worth the dollars. So sorry!
Ordered the grass fed wygu with mashed potatoes. One of the best tasting meals I've ever had. On the downside, wife ordered pork chop with greens. It was a thin breaded tenderloin that was dry and lacked flavor. Pickling on greens was overpowering. For desert she ordered the apple cake and thought it tasted amazing.
I have been visiting Joseph Decuis for over 15 years, probably three times per year. Unfortunatly I have been very disappointed the last 3 or 4 times. Service is superb, friendly, professional and attentive. However the food itself no is longer special. It's good, but not great. I had the Duck on this visit and it was overcooked. My wife had the grouper and it was quite average and that is being generous.
Desserts are particularly plain. I tried the new apple cake in hopes of something to change my mind, it did not persuade me. In the past the apps, and entrees were special, we made a habit of leaving for dessert and coffee elsewhere.
The one high spot for the evening was the Wagyu Tartar, phenomenal. However for the price and quality of the other items I doubt we will be returning any time soon. Just a note, this opinion is based on previous and current Chef's offerings.
