Dettera Restaurant & Wine Bar
My new Ambler area favoriteTreated my wife to a Mothers Day brunch. We sat at one of the high top tables out on the deck out front, enjoying the sun and passersby. Our server, James, was perfect in all the right ways. Absolutely loved the chilled creamy English pea soup with lump crabmeat. Wife also like her order of the gravlox appetizer.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mothers Day BrunchThe food at Dettera is amazing! What a treat! Every course from appetizer to desert was stunningly presented and delicious. The service was great and the prices were very fair! This place is a gem for sure!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSlightly eclecticThe food is really good, presented artfully. Portions are reasonable, but don't expect "copious". Very attentive wait staff and manager. Dozens of wines by the glass - 6 oz pours at $10 to $15. Total bill for two, 3 glasses wine between us, with tip $120.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGem in AmblerChef Power has taken Ambler to the next level of cuisine. What looks like a fun bistro, is exactly that and more. Great bar. Fun food. But.... not only fun.... the eclectic factor. One can enjoy an esoteric pizza, or amazing oysters/ tuna tartar in an extraordinary presentation/ fish from a fish procurer that stands out such that with Chef's talent, the ever changing menu is always fabulous. Chef has tasting menus that beg to be tasted. A taste of his best, or his best vegetarian. One can not go wrong with a visit to Ambler and a dining experience at Deterra.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAsk for the Pizza menu!!!!!We always get the same thing, a salad, a cheese plate and a pizza. They don't offer the pizza menu but trust me it is worth asking for. Delicious. Oh and don't forget the Wine!! Very nice selection.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGet Sunday BrunchWent here for the first time for brunch. We pretty much had the place to ourselves. The food, while slightly on the pricey side, was very good. Our waitress was very nice and provided great service. I would definitely go again for a nice brunch.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were great! I had the Oysters for an appetizer and the Duck breast for dinner. Incredibly well cooked. The wine prices were very reasonable and varied.
Parking was super easy as there are signs everywhere for parking. Next time I hope we go when it is warm out so we can sit outside!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet Sunday night. CocktailsQuiet Sunday night. Cocktails at the bar were fantastic and the wine list for dinner was impressive. Apps were good but entrees were the star of the show. Salmon had an amazing crisp and was Perfectly cooked, I don't usually even like salmon...the duck was the most impressive ive ever had. Tasted like beef almost and was unbelievably tender. Amish chicken was worth ordering chicken out. So unique and flavorful. Short ribs were also decadent. Tuna tartare was my favorite app. I live in Philly so am spoiled with amazing food options but would make the trek to ambler again to have another meal here.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
