Haven Ratings and Reviews
A Tampa restaurant that is the full pack ...
A Tampa restaurant that is the full package. Many in Tampa have great concepts and menu descriptions but lack the follow-through and that hard to describe element that knits flavors from idea to description to flavor on pallet. Haven does a great job of providing ambiance, selection, description, cocktail, wine, food, and service - beginning to the end. The only mistake I made was choosing a loved wine(Rioja) before my meal - pick a dry bubbly / white if you order the Duck. A little on the pricey side for "just a Wed dinner" but the choices, flavors, and service are worth it! If you are a foodie, like cocktails and / or wine get to Haven

We had a wonderful meal with friends. The cocktails were great especially the pumpkin spice old fashioned and the bourbon flights. the pork chop was spectacular as well. our waitress was competent but had too many tables to manage and was not as attentive as we like. we would definitely go back.

We have been to Haven a couple of times in the past, but this time really made my wife and me miss the old Sideberns when the menu had amazing dishes like the duck confit. This time the only really special dishes were the fried tomatoes and the Mumm sparkling. The beef rib was ok, but the cheese balls were horrible- cool/cold and with more breading than cheese.

We loved the cheese selection and ordered 3 that were brand new to us. They were served with crispy bread slices, but the fruit chutney was to die for with the cheeses. We will definitely return to try more.

Second time to Haven. Really enjoyed it. Incredible selection of wine and cheeses and a great place to go whether you're looking for a big meal or a tapas/wine and cheese experience.

Beautiful, bustling place upon entry, and the food looks great. A bit too bright inside, just right outside for a romantic evening. Friendly and professional front desk. However, the food tended to be salty, bland, and was cold. Service was painfully slow and armature.

If you like cheese and wine, Haven has so many options it's mind-blowing. We enjoyed a night out with friends - had an amazing cheese platter. The dishes are small and fun to pass around and share. The cocktails were finely crafted, well-balanced drinks. The atmosphere is loud and energetic on a Friday night, so not the place for a quiet evening. We really enjoyed the food, drinks and service.

Maybe one of my favorites spots in Tampa. The small plates, charcuterie, wine list are all fantastic and pair together well. The staff is always well trained and I've never had a bad experience.

Lyndi was the best server! Amazing knowledge of her menu/ wines. Attentive, nice. We will be recommending her to others we know.

Food and service was terrible. Our waitress didn't know the menu or the cheeses, didn't return to fill drinks for 15 mins and didn't clear plates for the next course. Food was underseasoned and overcooked. Chocolate dessert tasted like a chewy protein bar...not good.
I would only return for wine and cheese, never again for dinner... too many other far better options in the area.

We enjoyed the food very much. However, our server had a bit of an edge to him and made us feel as if he was doing us a favor by serving us. He had minimal personality and spoke as little to us as was necessary.

The menu is too exotic for some. No serving spoons were ever brought put and yet the dishes are for sharing. They did bring when requested but then failed to supply on next 3 shared dishes. Other patrons are seated very close.

We were seated in a location adjacent to the women's restroom and a servers station. We didn't realize this until after we were seated. No one wants to be the girl demanding to move after seating. Further, the light is harsh. Another small point, however I will be reluctant to bring a date here. I hope this helps!

Terrible experience. Service and food were not good. It was a huge waste. We should have kept our reservations at Burns. Place looked great though! But that was not enough to ever get me back.

Great food. Horrible service. Don't go there expecting the level of service you'd receive at Bern's or Elevage. From the hostess to manager to the waiter...everyone came off as pretentious and unwelcoming. They have a great happy hour but the website and staff fail to mention it is only available if you sit at the bar. There also secret bar offerings (beer, wine, spirits) not listed on the menu that you have to know to ask for. All in all, it makes you feel like an outsider and unwelcome if you haven't been there before. Normally you'd expect the waiter to ask if you'd been there before and take the time to explain things to you...especially at a place with small plates and daily offerings that changed. Our waiter didn't do that at all which forced us to keep asking questions to get him to tell us each special/daily offering. It was like pulling teeth. Again...the food is amazing if a bit pricey. But the service is the worst of any restaurant we've been to in Tampa.

We were celebrating our 30th anniversary, our waiter Felix, was great! All his recommendations were very good. Great place

Small shareable plates...not full on meals...quite expensive for this...everything tastes great but $20/small plate is more than I want to spend.
Happy hour is awesome tho!

Decor and ambiance are very nice. Less impressed with the small plate concept and the offerings. It's good to have drinks and an appetizer, but if you are looking for a filling dinner, I would go somewhere else.

One of the best restaurants in Tampa. From the charcuterie plate selections to the tapas-style dishes such as the octopus, tuna and striped bass ... our meal was amazing. The service was also first class. I will certainly return to this restaurant. Thank you.

The food and selection were great. Wine selection limited to Napa mainly, very little exposure to Sonoma, too bad. Service was slow and seemingly disorganized. We waited too long between courses, our waitress was all over the restaurant.
