It was beyond my expectations. Everything from the atmosphere to the food to the service it was all so perfect. It took us an hour to get to the restaurant from our home and it was so worth it. We already recommended it to others and are planning our next visit.

The food was good but cold. We waited almost an hour too so we were expecting the food to be hot. Overall, great place to dine.

*SIGH* I guess the feeling of disappointment is what I get after having such high expectations. Saturday night our reservation was made for 8:45. We arrived on time and did not get seated until 9:15. Annoying however I am a patient person and the staff kept apologizing because they were busy. We were seated inside when I requested an outdoor table. I can see outside and there were tables that were open. We asked about sitting outside and the host informed us that the tables were first come first serve. (So if the table outside was open, why did I wait a half hour to get seated). 5 minutes later the host comes back to the table and asks if we still want to sit outside. Yes we do that is basically the reason why we came in the first place. Well jokes on us because literally the worst service I have ever experienced. Fast forward to the end of dinner we were there for literally over 3 hours. The reason why it took so long was probably because we were basically ignored and forgotten about. Food was delicious however I do not think I will dine here again.

I made reservations a month before we were going to the restaurant for a birthday dinner. I requested a seat near the window and I understood that it is not guaranteed. When arriving at the restaurant the sat us at a booth not near the window. There were multiple tables available near the window and they said those were reserved... but they told me that reservations near the window were not guaranteed. They moved us twice after I had to explain why I was upset since I made the reservations but someone else requested near the window and they would be getting that table. We eventually sat near the window and the hostess that moved us was very understanding. The hostess at the front desk was not friendly at all and did not even bother talking to me when I arrived she told another hostess to seat us and completely ignored me upon arrival. The service was terrible and it took us 3 hours to complete our meal. The food was not good at all. I told them it was my boyfriend's birthday and they brought out a melted ice cream sundae with a candle falling out and just left it at the table without saying anything. I was very disappointed in the experience.

From start to finish, it was a great experience. The food, ambience, service were all exemplary. It’s perfect for special occasion dining. Weather permitting, outside dining is the ONLY way to go. The views of Manhattan are second to none.

As we live nearby, The Haven has been our “go-to” restaurant for several years. Recently many of my favorites have been removed from the menu and replaced with trendier offerings.

Only issue was the waiter kept rushing us to order despite our reservation being at 9. The restaurant was not overly crowded so was not sure of why he was in such a hurry. Other than that great spot!

Overall I was happy with my experience. The food was not as good as I expected though it was good. It was very salty and I usually like salty food. Service was good no issues. I imagine you are mostly paying the the nice view of the city skyline because the prices were a bit high for the quality of food. Want to go back to try brunch sometime

Been going here for awhile now with my wife, it was our 1st anniversary and I had made a reservation putting in that we would like a seat with a view if at all possible, it didn't happen I got a nice view of a pillar in the middle of the windows instead. The waitress spilled our drinks right next to meg getting my wife wet and my pants wet and when she returned with the drinks instead of giving my wife a new glass of wine she used the same wet glass and just filled it up with more wine, this meant that as she lifted the glass up the wine that was residual from before was dripping on her from the glass. I couldn't believe they just couldn't give her a new dry glass. We waited quite a bit for the food but we were fine because we just wanted to make the best of it and when the food came we were a bit perplexed as yes it was the short rib but the sides and so on weren't the same or what was described in the menu. I could only guess that they ran out and had to make something on the fly. its a shame because we loved going there but after this last time for the price we pay we will just start going someplace else

Awesome. Went for lunch and now I know I need to back for dinner just for the view of the NYC skyline. Sat outside on the patio and enjoyed delicious brunch, eggs benedict with salmon and spinach. Eggs were perfectly cooked, and the toast it was on was light, crispy and delicious. Food and atmosphere both fantastic. A must go.

The food was very good, however the service wasn’t the best. We waited for one hour for our food after we ordered. The server did not keep us updated at all. We did receive an apology from the manager. I thought they should have comped the deserts for the long wait but that didn’t happen. Very disappointing.

I'm a foodie and this place was AMAZING!! From appetizers, to entrees, drinks...all fantastic. We recently visited after a day at SoJo spa and had planned on appetizers, salads and cocktails. After seeing the menu and specials, we all ordered entrees as well. Service was top notch and you can't beat the view! Wish I lived closer, would love to come back!

Even though outlooks of restaurant and views were satisfied food quality wasn't worth my time and value.
1/3 of the 14° rib eye steak was not eatable.
Had to spit it out after trying to eat them.

I tried to use my Open Table rewards $ ...and once again they told me that it had been previously redeemed!! So, they didn’t allow the rewards credit. I called Open Table and was told that my reward was Not yet used. Open Table is speaking with Haven about this situation!!
I was very embarrassed when they declined the rewards!!!

Beautiful view, excellent food, great drinks. Was a little disappointed that on a Saturday night they didn’t have specials. It’s a little pricey too but, overall great place to go for a special occasion.
