Joseph Decuis Ratings and Reviews
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.
This was my 2nd visit to Joseph Decuis and it was outstanding. My wife and I both had the grass fed fillet and it was awesome. We ordered the beet appetizer and it did not disappoint. We ordered soup as well, I had the gumbo and my wife had the clam chowder. I loved both. For dessert, we had a lemon tart and it was good as well. My only complaint was that they were out of the first 2 bottles of wine that we ordered. But this did not detract from a wonderful evening.
The filet and vegetables were delish. I would have loved to have more vegetables. The bread brought to the table was great. The desserts we ordered were to rich for me but they were good. It was a nice touch to be able to choose a special handmade knife to cut our steaks with. The only complaint I have is that it was very cold in the atrium seating area. I wish we had been in a different room or it had been warmer.
We wanted to give this restaurant another chance because the service and meal was mediocre during a previous visit. At that time, we had reserved a table in the bar area but were told that a large event had taken all the tables thereby moving us to the atrium. The food was mediocre and ambiance not to our liking. This was a dress up celebration with our daughter but due to the change in seating we were placed next to a couple dressed in shorts and T shirt. Following this last diner event we found that the scallops were no longer available, one salad was poorly made, too much vinegar, and the main meals were good but quite small compared to the price charged. Never again will we dine at Decuis ! Over priced!
The Waygu Beef was outstanding both my wife and I hade the Ribeye. Oh my gosh is was phenomenal. Didn't want to swallow.
Had a nice Pinot Syrah by Orin Swift did not disappoint.
Brussels sprouts salad was a very good start.
Would highly recommend all of the above.
This establishment had the potential of being rated 5 stars, but fell way short despite many of the favorable reviews. The restaurant purports to be world class and I must admit I was impressed with the wine list when I first read through it. I chose three different bottles of wine and they were out of each one. Finally we found a French Bordeaux that they had in stock. While we waited on the wine, another waitress reviewed the menu. Many of the entrees were not available. In fact, they had to review so many replacement entrees our table joked they needed to have an addendum to their menu. Finally, after 30 minutes of tracking down a wine, the waiter finally took our order. Several of us ordered salads and after quite a bit of time, I asked for some bread, which the waiter finally brought out. Then the salads came. My wife ordered the JD Farm Salad. It was advertised to include Manchego Cheese but arrived without it. My wife had to wait and ask the waitress for the cheese. The main meal finally arrived (they are not in a rush by the way), and my daughter's flank steak and sides were stone cold. My Scallops with Butternut Squash Puree were luke warm at best. We had to track someone down to complain about the cold flank steak. I guess they used a microwave oven to warm it up as it came back fairly quickly, but now it was over done. By the way, there were only 3 small scallops for a cost of $34. It took forever to get the bill and both my wife and I had to track down the waiter to get it. Apparently the waiter felt bad about the evening and did take 50% off the cost of the wine, but that gesture is not enough to make me want to come back to this establishment. Maybe this was an off night for the restaurant and staff, but note there are some other reviews that are not so positive either. Looks like it may be a hit or miss kind of place. I won't make another $600 gamble on this place again.
