Again, +++ all around....Sadie was great......we did order a bit too much food, but that's our issue!!! salads, great, specials great, desserts great...love the tuna..
This very nice restaurant lived up to our expectations.
We like to eat outside on the patio but it looked a little cramped and the chairs did not look comfortable. Plan B turned out to be the best. Dining on the second floor with the door leading outside provided a lovely breeze, and the chairs were quite comfortable.
The panzanella salad was fresh and refreshing.
Do you world was cooked to perfection medium rare.
The service was prompt and not overbearing.
I would highly recommend.
Great food. Elegant and delicious. It was a hit with everyone- tasting menu and regular menu- all great.
Spectacular all around! The flavor combinations are exquisite, well done seasonally leaving you a long lasting memory of the meal! Absolutely delicious!
We enjoyed a wonderful evening at Detente. Our dinners were delicious, surpassed only by the excellent service from the lovely Sadie.
We had a very nice evening at Detente. The waitstaff were friendly, efficient and nonintrusive. The food was excellent- well prepared and beautifully presented. Couldn’t have hoped for a nicer experience.
Wonderful ambiance and service and food however a bit pricey.
Fabulous experience! Loved our meal. Every dish -- three appetizers, a main dish and two desserts -- was excellent!
We sat outside which was wonderful. We were a bit afraid as it was a little chilly but the heaters kept it very comfortably warm. The food was wonderful and the service spectacular. I would definitely recommend Detente and I would definitely go again.
We look forward to seasonal visits to Detente. The food is consistently creative, locally sourced, and served with pride. Have a pleasant break, Detente staff!
We were a table of 6 women. It was a lovely evening. Out server was excellent, although a bit busy. Our food was outstanding. It was quiet and we could talk easily. A wonderful evening all around!
Intimate environment, excellent service and amazing food!
Enjoyable. Creative cuisine. Attentive service. Peach appetizer to die for
Spectacular meal, fantastic service. Wish we lived closer so that we could go back soon!
Creative food and wonderful staff! We look forward to going back again next year!
The food was innovative and delicious. We eat regularly in the West Village in Manhattan and Detente can compete with the best.
Creative food, great choices and a delicious experience all around.
Everything was good but the portion size for the duck confit ravioli was skimpy for the money. Recommend the Tabor Green salad and the Beef duo.
It was our second time on the island and we had to stop again at detente. We had a wonderful time last year and the same thing happen again! The food is always delicious, creative and well seasoned with seasonal or local product. We both time ate outside which is very charming. The service is attentive. Great gem place in MV!
Wonderful meal, as always. The Goldbud peach salad is something I dream about all year - I could eat three courses of it! The inventive presentation, wonderful flavors and attentive service make this an excellent choice for a lovely evening.
We had a lovely dinner outdoors with a very attention and professional waitress.
We would go there again.
Chef Kevin does a masterful and artistic performance juxtaposing various foods and tastes together. Each course, arugula salad with fresh peaches and cheese, monkfish with gnocchi and pork belly, quints with sorbet and sweets, were delights for the palette and the eyes. Service was also outstanding. Just a great evening.
Great restaurant the food was amazing .very busy so book a table
Great spot with excellent food and service. Place is small but has a quaint outdoor area. Definitely a place to go while on the island.
Great food and great service - who could ask for anything more? Many thanks to Détente for a perfect evening of food and great conversation with friends. The lamb was fantastic as was the halibut with lobster and asparagus risotto.
Strong menu and kitchen. Very welcoming and solid service. Lovely evening.
Really excellent. Lots of care given to ingredients and preparation of food, service steady and responsive, personable, ambience cozy, comfortable
Dinner was great! Three different meals (rack of lamb, filet mignon and fish) and all were very good with terrific sides and sauces. Best food on Martha’s Vineyard by far. We had a great bottle of wine too! We had the chocalate tort for dessert which was excellent.
Sophisticated super tasty meal using local products
Everything wss excellent at the restsurant. Food service pleasant friendly staff. Off the chart taste and presentation of food and dessert. Will go back and recommend. Franco was the best waiter
Most creative food we found on MV. Wait staff were attentive but not obtrusive. Fine wine list.
Outstanding menu and wine list. Flavorful and well seasoned courses with seasonal and local ingredients. Service was hurried when present (wait staff seemed overextended) Pacing of courses was prolonged.
The place is truly amazing on all fronts . Iv been a fan of this chef ( and his wife ) for years & it's truly a memorable dining experience. Please go a you'll thank yourself !
First time dining at Detente. This is one of the best restaurants on the island. Food was perfect and was the service. You can dine inside or outside on a beautiful evening. You won't be disappointed!
French food. Not better than most of them, maybe better than some others on the island, not sure... Peach salad was good, appetizers not impressive, lamb was undercooked and hard, understated. Dessert also so-so. Plates were nicely decorated but that was about it. Good food but not outstanding. Had better, had worse... May try once I guess, then try other ones.
The food was just delicious, almost start to finish. One of us ordered the beef duo, the other the halibut with risotto. The halibut and risotto were amazing, perfectly prepared. The beef duo also was delicious; the only slightly weak link was the short rib, which was fatty for my taste and nothing special. The accoutrements to both dishes showed great (and delicious) attention to detail. The panzanella salad we shared as an appetizer, and the peach-nectarine tart we had for dessert, also were amazing. The service also was very good, and the atmosphere was pleasant -- good for a date as well as for a family occasion.
The food was exceptional! Combinations of Flavors were like being on a journey. A true foodie restaurant. Can’t wait to go back again!!
The food and service where good, there was a very loud table for 4 near us and no one attempted to control the noise. It was quite unfortunate, I think the management should have at least asked them to tone it down. The waiter even apologized to us but didn't do anything to change it.
This was a fantastic find. The service was exceptional! The food was phenomenal.
Wonderful evening we enjoyed the local peaches in salad and dessert
