I thought L'Etoile couldn't be beat, but this was even better overall. The salads (especially the peach/arugula) were to die for, not to mention the side of fried cauliflower with peanuts - out of this world. Since they were out of monkfish I had the sea bass which was off the charts and tried my friends' scallops which were excellent as well. The menu was small, but excellent - all good choices. We did have dessert and I have to say the chocolate brownie with caramel salt gelato was incredible. Our server couldn't have been more helpful. A first rate dining experience on MV. A bit expensive but worth it.

Our favorite place and had another great time and meal this trip. Love it! Everything that comes out of that kitchen is delicious. Love those little raviolis with the fluke. The great staff always makes it perfect.

Detente was the best restaurant on all of Martha's Vineyard. Everything we tasted was fresh and cooked with impeccable accuracy and flavor. L'Etoile was good, but this was a step above.
The peach taleggio and white truffle salad was really amazing and the mussel agnolotti (clear broth with coriander and jalapeño) was incredible. The brownie and the shortcake was worth every pound of sugar and butter. And service was irreproachable.

We loved the flavors in the grilled squid appetizer. Main course monkfish was also very good. Service and ambience were wonderful. Seated on the patio. All around great experience.
