"The Haven does a fancy twist on Scottish food. The fish and chips were delicious. The clam chowder was more flavorful than regular NE clam chowder. The cocktails were tasty"

"My girlfriend and I have been wanting to try this place for a while. Both the food and service was superb. In terms of cons, the dining area is a bit cramped for some, especially when it got busy, and the beer prices are a bit higher than normal. That said I didn't have problems getting in and out of my seat, and we both thought the drink prices were fair to try such unexpected gems. We both highly recommend the Elderflower cider. We can't wait to go back again."

"The food at the Haven is classic Scottish but absolutely delicious in a way I didn't know British Isles food could be. The service is always excellent, friendly, and fast. The owner is often hosting or working the crowd and is very welcoming and warm. A reservation is definitely recommended for brunch or dinner time. The cocktails and beers are top notch too!"

"this has become our neighborhood restaurant and go to spot when we want to get together with friends for a nice meal in a relaxed atmosphere. We often take out of town guests here as well. Good food and nice setting. Service is great and its less of a hipster place than most of JP. Cant stand most of the other spots in the neighborhood anymore. So this has become the local hang for us. Wish they had more beer on draft."

"Chicken was good the burger was not up to the regular standard, had chewy fat chunks instead of bacon, and was also missing the delicious savory essence that makes it everyone's go to, around town at least. The drinks are always good. I get the bagpipe gimmick, but keep the obnoxious posse that comes with it in the bar area till the 8pm reservation can finish eating, at least"

"I like this place and will go again. Love the ambience of it, owner is great, staff is good to great. As an out-of-towner, I find it expensive for what it is but it's in range for Boston. Food is decent (and limited for a vegetarian but that's to be expected so I don't hold that against them at all.) Drinks okay to really nice, and beer good. I was not overly impressed with the job on my veggie plate this time around, and was surprised the bartender went rogue on a Vesper adding something that is not identified as an ingredient on the menu. Veggie bridies -- yum! Dining companion was disappointed with an undercooked burger when he had asked for medium/well-done. Fish and chips was a hit with the other diner. Overall, okay, though."

"The Haven is a terrific restaurant; if I lived closer I would be there all the time. The food is great and the service is always top-notch, even when it's very busy (which is always). Though not a large place they can accommodate reasonably sized groups (it was no problem getting a reservation for 6 on a Friday night, calling a couple of days in advance). If you're adventurous, try the haggis; if not, the Haven boasts one of the best burgers in Boston."

"Would some more textiles lessen the noise level? It really was very difficult to hold a conversation. I enjoyed the food and service was super too, but the "social" factor plummets when you cannot hear each other at all."

"Was so happy to find a true Scottish restaurant and it lived up to my expectations! Great true to culture decor. The food was authentic and simply delicious. My husband and I enjoyed a nice quiet Saturday morning brunch with great service and friendly waitress. I think the best thing that will definitely have us returning was the Bloody Scotch! We love bloody Mary's but getting it with scotch instead of vodka was a real treat. It was one of the best bloodies I've ever had, delicious, fresh taste. The mix was housemade with plenty of horseradish bite, a kick from scotch bonnets and a smooth flavor from the herbs and house infused Scotch. Perfection!"

"The Haven chefs have a vision and they execute it very well. They serve traditional Scottish food with some great adaptations that make old standards even better. Scotch Egg and a great potato and haddock soup (I would mess up the name if I tried to spell it) are fantastic! Service is very friendly and patient with a gamut of food preferences and restrictions."

"I can't say enough about this gem. Food, service and ambiance are 10+. My only concern is that if I rave too much, then the small restaurant will become even more crowded. Very small food selection but everything we had was tasty ... even the homemade ketchup. The waitress was above and beyond and explained all dishes with a smile on her face. Been here before and will return."

"I was really excited to bring my UK partner to The Haven for brunch. Unfortunately, he was able to point out every NON authentic aspect of the meal. He was disappointed with his Bubble & Squeak since the dish is supposed to be a fried mash-up of veggies and potatoes. Instead he was given a salad of mostly cabbage and veggies with two fried eggs on top. I don't even understand why they're calling this Bubble & Squeak... you can't even call what they served a variation. And note that our server did not know what Bubble & Squeak was.
Another major disappointment was that I made the trek to the Haven from out of town for the toffee french toast and they were ALL OUT OF IT. There were only 6 other people in the restaurant when we arrived so either we had missed a huge rush in which everyone ordered the french toast or the restaurant did not bother to have enough ingredients. When you only have 8 brunch entrees on a menu, a kitchen needs to keep enough ingredients to be able to serve all those entrees for the entire brunch period (only 5 hrs). I ended up having the lox and bagel, which included 4 skinny little slices of lox and a small, plain bagel. DEFINITELY not worth $13.
All that being said, I'd like to come back to get the french toast and because the beer selection is very good. I also like the ambiance.
