Our waitress Angie was very attentive to our needs. The house salad with blue cheese Excellent! the filet mignon and lobster was amazing. And the cream Brulé was fantastic. And the martinis were to die for! It was amazing that the chef took his time out to come around and talk to all the customers and asked how things were not once but twice. I have definitely already recommended to family and friends to make a trip to Decorah to this lovely restaurant.

About the restaurant
We have worked diligently to develop a unique atmosphere here at Table 32. Not just with our décor and physical structure of the amazing vintage backdrop of the old Creamery building dating back to the early 1900’s. We have also put our minds together to develop our food and drink menus as well as focusing on the “craft” of the recipes themselves. We are focused on real ingredients and hand crafting them into something truly delicious. Then it comes down to providing you, our guest, a fun and relaxing dining experience without all the expectations of fine dining. We are working with our staff to develop a culture that promotes great people, great fun and amazing food and drink.

The steak was done perfectly. The chocolate martini was a delicious after dinner drink. Beth did an outstanding job serving us and our friends. Table 32 is the best restaurant by far in Sioux City.
