Beginning at 10:00pm every Friday and Saturday night, Dettera’s late-night lounge and wine bar is in full-swing. Warm up your winter nights with cocktails and wine by the roaring fireplace. Then kick up your heals with Dettera’s DJ, as he spins your favorite oldies.


Located in the heart of Ambler, Dettera brings sophisticated dining to the suburbs. Centrally located on the main street of the newly revitalized downtown Ambler, Dettera merges progressive American cuisine with wine bar chic in a beautifully restored, historic building.

From casual dining on the outside deck with the soaring brick fireplace, to the first floor dining level, which opens to a dramatic curving black granite bar and oversized round banquettes, Dettera creates the perfect atmosphere for your dining experience.


Executive Chef Thomas Groff and his team have created an eclectic, varied menu at Dettera. His fresh, innovative cuisine is inspired by seasonal flavors and the restaurant’s own organic spice and herb garden, which is tended to daily by Groff.

The menu features Woodstone brick-oven pizza and dishes with a twist, like Porcini Dusted Black Cod and Grilled Berkshire Pork Cowboy Chop and chef specialties, including Rack of Prime Colorado Lamb and Grilled Copper River Salmon.


Deterra offers lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30am – 3:00pm. Deterra’s lunch menu offers something for everyone from the Warm Asparagus Salad to a Crab Cake Panini, an 8 oz Kobe Burger or a selection of thin-crusted pizzas.Call 215.643.0111 or click here for reservations.
