Loved, loved, loved. This is an awesome find in the Conejo Valley. Lovely interior, tasty food, good wine. And - the creme brûlée desert was TO DIE FOR. Great for a nice dinner, great for a date, great for company. Would give six stars if possible.

Food and drink, whether wine or cocktails, are always fantastic. Ribs are phenomenal. Keep your eyes on the specials, too. Pork Chop is always a hit out of the park.

Service was horrible. Steak was ordered medium and was completely over cooked actually burnt on the outside. We were seated on the sidewalk with one of the chairs close to the curb. One false move and would have ended up on my butt on a parking space. Waitress was horrible. Would not go back and would not recommend. Owner came abs asked us how everything was at the end of our meal but we were in a hurry to get out to our next destination.

This was the first time we visited Decker Kitchen. The servers were really "on it" and the food was good. We tried the Burrata and Swordfish. Since we were sitting on a sidewalk next to parking lot, not the best ambiance....but the owner said they are moving to a new, larger location.

ALWAYS AMAZING! Graham is just a peach; He really knows his customers and always makes a point to stop by and say hi. The food is always out of this world as well. We usually get the specials but opted for the steak this time, which was just steak and potatoes (cubed, roasted/sauteed yukon gold) but it was perfection. My husband literally said, "I've eaten at a lot of nice steak restaurants and this is probably the best steak that I've ever had." This place is no joke. We ALWAYS get the feta mousse toast and I'm always blown away with how amazing every single element is - like, WHERE do you ALWAYS get these amazing tomatoes? All year 'round. Seriously. His wine list is perfection, and he brought on the Oak and Iron guy to create his mixed drinks too. Definitely our absolute favorite place to eat in the Conejo Valley. Reminds me of the small, independent restaurants from San Francisco: warm, inviting, farm to table, curated, rotating dishes, and you just feel like family when you're there. *Don't forget that you can snag loaves of bread and bottles of wine to go to. Much love to Graham!

Crowded. Only 2 waiters so slow service but very courteous. Food was great.
Heard they will be moving to a bigger spot so hoping that is true. This restaurant definitely needs a larger space to accommodate the growing popularity.
Regardless it’s a nice evening out but you’ll be sitting in a cramped room or outside in front of parking spaces so beware

The beats were rather tasteless, but the dill was a good adder. The wine and steak were excellent. So a little more and they would have had 5/5 for food. Service was a bummer that they were missing some help. They could have used another person on the tables.

Very disappointed to find out the Owner decided to charge me for a meal I returned to the kitchen after taking only 3 bites. We have been to this place many times and always bring new friends to try it out. I always order the same thing so I knew what to expect. After expressing my disappointment in the meal, the owner proceeded to tell me everyone was complimenting that dish all night and that he was surprised, which I find hard to believe. The fish was dry and flavorless like the rest of the meal. We were a party of 5 and ordered appetizers, salads, dessert and over paid for for corkage fees. It was a poor choice to not take my meal off our check and acknowledge that just maybe the customer was right. Definitely lost our business moving forward. We will not be going back.

One of our favorite places! Go for the grilled bread, although everything is superb, from speciality cocktails, interesting menu items like shakshuka or burrata with grilled peaches, and wine list!

We very much enjoyed our first time dining at this little restaurant.
The food was delicious! Fresh baked bread, crisp salad and tender, tasty ribs did not disappoint. And the potatoes that accompany the ribs were perfection! The pork chop special was cooked perfectly and could have easily fed both of us.
We look forward to our next visit.

These guys just get it. No fluff on the menu, everything is great, super consistent, and thoughtful. Paul’s cocktail program is unreal and unmatched. You just don’t see or taste anything like he’s creating on that cocktail menu. I recommend the bread program or the fresh tomato and goat cheese toast. The salads or super fresh and tasty. Their burger is insane and a must have and their pizzas have a crust that will keep you coming back. That said, try some of their rotating specials. Moroccan chicken is delicious. Awesome place…

Great service by Elizabeth. Menu is not overwhelming, crispy potatoes, beet salad and crispy chicken thighs were excellent! Delicious comfort food followed by a creme brulee Napoleon.
Will definitely go back to try their ribs or ribeye steak!

I enjoy this restaurant for their unique take on food and sour dough bread which is why I’ve returned . The service is the challenge, in particular the bar service. Not only is the wait time for drinks, which are quite creative and very good , too long but the lack of urgency in serving drinks or even being solicited for a second round of drinks reflects poor customer engagement and must be intentional . I want to love this place but the degree of simple attention to the customers or even just expressions of appreciation are benign at best. It’s a restaurant with a personality but inconsistent in how it expresses its better self leaving me feeling it could have created a surprisingly amazing dining experience but didn’t care enough to go that far. Their food got me there! Great service would keep me coming back.
