Haven Ratings and Reviews
We return again and again. The menu always seems to have something new, whether it's a local beer, an unusual cocktail, or an entree that we haven't tried yet. My husband and I often get two plates each and try to save room for a shared dessert. The waiters can always describe a dish or drink in detail and steer us towards the choice that fits us best.
had a great meal a few months ago but not this time. The meat was overpriced for what you got, the Pasta was great with She-Crab. Elk - not so much. Pork Belly? not good - too expensive for the 3 little pieces of pork that do NOT cost that much for the restaurant to buy. The wine was great as were the cocktails - different and refreshing. The cheese course was good too. The biggest disappointment was the dessert. The scotch something with the chocolate semi-fredo was awful - it tasted like soap. and the so-called butter cake was 3 little slivers of pound cake with some crunchy coconut on top or something. for 8 dollars? I really wanted a piece of cake. too bad it was so uneven. some good some bad - and the NOISE! we really couldn't talk without practically yelling- wow.
The server was very nice and informative about everything. he knew all of the dishes and ingredients so we could choose but still - next time I think I will just go to Bern's.
Haven was delightful. We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday. The cheeses, she crab linguine, steak, hotel epicurean cocktail and motorworks barrel age was delectable. The portions were just right. The grand finale was the dirt pie with soaked infused scotch gummy worm. It was heavenly. To top it off, and candle was glued on to wish my boyfriend a happy birthday. Service and menu items are always top notch. I definately want to frequent at Haven more often. I can't stop thinking of the cheeses.
Food selection & cocktails were lovely however we had a party of six in honor of a friend's birthday and of the six her entree (fish) came out well after we finished ours. Same with 3 of the side dishes we ordered. The waiter (who was up to that point very nice & knowledgeable) never acknowledged or apologized for the delay. When my friend commented about how long the dishes took he mumbled an excuse about the kitchen but my theory is he forgot to enter in those orders. Disappointing since we're frequent diners at Bern's.
My wife and I have been coming to the original Side Berns which is now Haven for many years. This is our first visit for a full meal since it became Haven. When we first arrived, the valet was exceptionally polite, We were both primed for a great meal, but we were seated right next to the men's john, which does not bode well for the $250 bottle of wine we ordered ($455.00 dinner billing). Asked to be moved to the quieter side of the restaurant. The only time the waitress offered to refill our water glasses was just as we had paid the bill and were standing up to leave. No bread & butter came to the table, but that may be normal. The food was very good and we finished with a very nice selection of cheeses - the rabbit tagliatelle and the sous vide elk were exceptional. Waitstaff needs help desperately, but the food was wonderful.
This is our 3rd visit and experience at Haven is always fantastic. The vast wine list is expected as they're owned by Berns, but the cheese list and small plates are impressive as well. Go with a group and order many items to share or sit at the bar with a date.
Haven always exceeds expectations. From the charcuterie and cheese boards, to the soups to the freshest seafood and excellent wine selection, the team at Haven -- front of house and kitchen team -- are all on their game. The menu changes regularly, which is one of the reasons every experience is unique. What makes it most special is how well trained the service staff is. True professionals across the spectrum. We'll be back soon!
This is my new favorite place! I went here for the first time on Valentine's day and I was pleasantly surprised. Cory was amazing. The food was fantastic. The ambiance could not have been better. There was a tasting menu that was reasonably priced that blew my taste buds away. What a gem of a place! I have already made my next reservation for this weekend.
Our experience at Haven was fantastic! My family and I came here to celebrate an engagement and the Haven staff made it so special. With no prior notice of the occasion, they set up a private room for us. The food was delicious! I would highly recommend the sirloin, duck egg, and oysters, but the charcuterie is a must have! Our server, Felix, was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating of many different food allergies in the group. The amazing service and food made for the perfect evening. A Tampa native, I haven't been to the restaurant since it was SideBerns, but I will definitely be coming back to Haven!
Amazing restaurant. The food and the was absolutely perfect. So fresh and everything made with care and love. The quality of the food is superb. The service could not have been better , even after we asked to be moved to a more quite part of the restaurant because it was happy hour and very noisy with a packed bar. If you love cheese this is your place. We can't wait to go back and try new dishes.
We dined at the Haven to celebrate a 34th wedding anniversary. Overall, I would say that we were impressed by the food and attention to detail. The table split the cheese plate and charcuterie board - both of which were stellar. We also enjoyed the vegetable dish and roast duck, but the dessert fell short. We ordered the sticky toffee dish and it was borderline inedible; it appeared as if homemade butterscotch was used and it was overwhelmingly smokey. That being said, dinner was overall enjoyable.
What was severely lacking was the service. When we first pulled in to the restaurant it was unclear where the valet service was located. We pulled into the parking lot and while it appeared as if we were not the only ones to have made this mistake, there was no one in sight to redirect us. Once we were seated, our waiter was borderline nonexistent. We were left to fill our wine glasses for the entire night, had to ask the busboy to place the order for the next course, delivered dessert before our other course arrived, etc. Again, with the exception of dessert the food was wonderful, but the service was disappointing.
