Dettera Restaurant and Wine Bar


Dettera started as the vision of owner Frank Lutter. Lutter, a commercial contractor/developer, purchased the property in 2008. As a lifelong wine and food lover, Lutter eventually decided to take the unique space and transform it into a high-end Restaurant & Wine Bar. Lutter was looking for a Center City dining experience in historic Ambler. During the renovation phase of Dettera, Lutter's crew uncovered the original granite nameplate in the building's exterior. This nameplate, which had been hidden for decades in the front facade, identified the building's original owner Mathias Dettera, a grain and seed wholesaler in the early 1900s. This signature stone became the inspiration for the restaurant's name and now rests elegantly within the mahogany paneling above the main bar. Today, Dettera is an established member of Ambler's thriving restaurant scene. With its seasonally-driven cuisine and specialty cocktails, and an ever-changing wine list, there is always something exciting waiting for you. To further enhance your experience, the goal is always to provide seamless service in a relaxed atmosphere, which can be enjoyed by our casual bar or in a more romantic setting by either of the indoor or outdoor fireplaces.
