Our dinner on Saturday evening was perfect. The meal and the help could not have been better.
thanks to all
Our favorite restaurant never disappoints.....The food is beautifully prepared and always delicious. Ingredients are fresh, local and inventive. Cocktails are interesting and the wine list is very good. The servers are friendly helpful and attentive even of a busy night.
We were very happy with our visit to Dettera. The food and service were outstanding. It is always consistent.
Excellent on in all aspects.
Kenny is always efficient and friendly. We are frequent diners.
This is a gem in Ambler! The service was fantastic and their dishes are quite unique. Definitely recommend it!
Great service. Lovely outside. Food cooked perfectly. Octopus appetizer was specially delicious!
Good meal, good service, pleasant atmosphere. Convenient location.
Expensive, pretentious, with a poor service. We waited 55 minutes for our dishes to be served on a Friday night when 1/3 of the tables were empty. A medium rare steak came overcooked and hard as a shoe sole. A portion of Brussels sprouts was carbonized, beyond charred. Too expensive for the mediocre quality. Very disappointing.
There were lapses in the service that made our dinner less pleasurable than we would have liked. The waiter was very attentive when we arrived. We ordered drinks and it took a long time for them to arrive. After our first course, it took a long time for our food to arrive. The waits were surprising as the restaurant appeared not to be that busy.
Consistently excellent cuisine, with something for every palette.
I love the ambience here. I would dine frequently here and give all 5 stars IF they would add organic options and vegetarian options that include protein to the menu.
I've been disappointed my last few trips to Dettera. I usually check the menu the day I want to go and it's never the same when we arrive - very frustrating, especially since my friend has significant food allergies. My meal was okay - not great. For the price, I can eat somewhere else and receive a better meal.
Very nice meal. Sat outside for the first time here enjoyed being outside on a beautiful night. Both Starters and entrees for me and my dining partner were very good. Wine list was certainly adequate and prices fairly. One observation for the website...it does not mention beer as an option for drinks that I could see. Would be helpful to post the draft list or at least a list of bottle options.
Dettera is on our restaurant rotation list. We try to visit 2-3 times a year. Our most recent visit was by far the best this year. We shared the watermelon and feta cheese salad as a starter. My dining companion enjoyed the duck. I am usually hesitant about ordering duck, because there isn't much room for error in preparation. But the chef got it right, it was perfectly prepared. The portion of tilefish was ample and cooked just right. Two very happy diners who plan to return!
Their Spanish Octopus was excellent. The Goat Cheese Cavatelli was a little too al dente and boring. Service was great. Wine good. Would definitely go back again. Sorbet and ice cream were good choices.
Outstanding service , delicious wine and wonderful ambience! My favorite place!
Always great service and food. We go several times a month.
First time and would go back for happy hour. After happy hour drinking gets to be pretty expensive quickly.
Delicious, parking next door, good selection of food and spirits.
Consistent, quality food, service and atmosphere. Always an enjoyable experience.
Excellent service and food. Better than you’d expect in a little suburban town.
Terrific celebratory meal at Dettera. As always, something for everyone and the staff genuinely care that you have a good experience. Have to have the tomato tartine and corn cavatelli before they are no longer in-season.
My friends and I always enjoy Dettera; it is a really special place for us. We love the menu offerings and there is usually always something new and exciting on the menu. I loved the special salad I ordered and my friend loved the one with blueberries. The Bream entree with an unusual sauce was really great...just wished it had more okra rather than a presentation type; my friend loved the Duck which I have also had many times and enjoyed. We selected cocktails this time vs. wine and I was a little disappointed in the Pink Panther one. Overall, a pleasant meal!
Everything AVAILABLE were as good as it gets. I just think a menu should have more to offer. With that said, this is a wonderful restaurant. Easy on the eyes as well as the pallet. I really like the bar. Now this has a great choice of drink. The house vodka is "Boardroom" distilled in Lansdale, so I like the fact they use local distributors. So you will see why I only gave it 4 stars.
Great food, great drinks and most importantly wonderful service! My dining partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Deterra. We each ordered amazing appetizers followed by half shares of pasta. Our server, Brian, recommended the Left Bank cocktail for me. Wow, absolutely fantastic!
Deterra is a great place to go before going to The Ambler Movie Theater or the Act II Playhouse, both of which are right across the street.
My only criticism of my evening would be the noise level. If you’re coming here for an intimate dinner, perhaps choosing the outside space would be best.
Wonderful service, delicious food. Restaurant week offered very good choices and we enjoyed the wine pairing aspect of the meal.
Dettera is always on the list of my recommendations. Please get larger hot water (tea) pots.
Mike and Kenny are great!
The last 2 times I have eaten here the waiter just disappears for 15 minutes. It is bizarre. Food is pretty good. Staff is generally friendly. I just continue to get poor service. Also, the young people who pour water interrupt your conversation every few minutes to ask if anyone needs more water. Just fill the glasses that need filling and coordinate a little bit so we don’t get interrupted every few minutes by a different person.
I love this place! Friendly and professional service and a mouth watering menu! The wine list is divine!
We were at Deterra during restaurant week and so their fine food was a real bargain. It was also possible to order from the regular menu which our friends did. The service really stood out.
This restaurant delivers consistent quality and has offered several special items like small plates which is an attractive option. It is a bit pricey but options such the restaurant week menu add to its attractiveness.
We’ll be back!
Ate outside on the front terrace. It was a bit tight but otherwise lovely. Great meal during Restaurant Week. Very good service too!
Service and food was excellent and the outdoor seating was super cute!
Excellent creative food. Lovely servers. Warm, friendly.
Bartender was great.. food was good. Server seemed to want to rush us through our service even though it was a pretty slow night.
It was especially noisy in the restaurant, however the waiter was great although service was slow [perhaps due to the party]. We'll try the restaurant again when it's "party-free."
This place was incredible, food drink service....definitely the beginning of many more reservations to come 😊
First time at this fabulous restaurant and it won't be our last! The creativity of the chef and bartender was evident. Our server Michael was outstanding. Thank you for making our anniversary so special with complementary champagne as well.
Our waiter was one of the most obviously disinterested service staff I ever encountered.
The food was very good, we both had different fish entrees and they were both very tasty and arrived warm. My dinner consisted of a slice of fish with a bit of corn kernels and 5 halves of the smallest baby potatoes I ever saw...
We were both extremely grateful for the bread...it was filling..
We found this restaurant to be a big disappointment !!The portions did not warranted the prices; neither one of us is a "big eater" and yet we cleaned our plates and left hungry.
When asked at the end , by or server "how was everything?" I told him that the food was good BUT the portions were ridiculously small, he gave me a blank stare and left our table with the check and his much too large tip !!
I will not recommend nor visit this restaurant again.
I’ve been to Dettera at least 35 times and I’ve never had a bad experience. Great food, attentive service, nice atmosphere.
