My friends and I went for my birthday and we had a great time! The food was abundant, excellent and delicious along with the desserts, cappuccinos and drinks. The service was attentive and patient with our requests. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was that we had to wait for a friend who was arriving late in order to be seated which set us back a half hour. I don’t know why the policy requires the entire party to be present in order to be seated but it is definitely something that would keep me from planning a group gathering again. I would visit again with my husband for a meal but definitely not with a group.

Upon arriving, we were seated promptly with a reservation. Our table had a view of Manhattan, inside. Our server, Christina, greeted us; gave us a menu gave us a few mins. and came back to take our drink order. She then explained some items on the menu. We asked some questions about appetizers and food and her advice and opinions were right on the money. We had lobster truffle mac and cheese, short rib bruschetta and lobster croquettes - all were a nice sized portion, beautiful presentation and all three delicious! Our dinners were crispy duck and lamb shank. The dinners were creative, well presented, each with unique sauces and sides. The dessert was a chocolate croissant bread pudding -- delicious as well. We found our meals, service and ambiance to be above average and will definitely go back to this restaurant. Our waitress was excellent and personable!

Shoot the chef. Or at least, fire him. All the food is over-fried, overcooked and mostly uneatable. Pity, because it is a beautiful place, an outstanding setting, and the restaurant could have attracted a lot of permanent patrons.

Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday and our 4th year anniversary this evening! What a wonderful experience right on the waterfront overlooking the Hudson River and NYC Skyline! Thank you to the wonderful staff of HAVEN in making our “typical Tuesday” very memorable and special.

I would love to give 5 stars but I have to give 3. I made reservations a month in advance and clearly stated it was for a birthday and I wanted outdoor seating. I did not get outdoor seating although two days prior to my reservation I received a call from the hostess confirming I was going to sit outside. Then, when we arrived I was told outside seating is on a first come first serve basis. But if I would've been told this prior to arriving, I would've made reservations at another near by restaurant. The reason I wanted to come here was for the view. Secondly, when dessert was ordered, it did not say happy birthday nor had a candle. Highly upsetting when you are trying to surprise your loved ones and nothing comes out right. The only good thing about this night was our server Matt, he was so amazing!

Their moderate amount of menu choices produced excellent dishes.
Scallop appetizer was superb as was the short ribs entree.
The sirloin was good but not steak house quality.
Bread & sides were very good as well.
On arrival we were warmly greeted with congrats for our anniversary. The service was great if you like a little overbearing which we did, including a complimentary anniversary desert.
The only thing I did not like is the $5.00 valet charge in the suburbs with a community parking garage behind the restaurant, (but everyone has to make a living).
We'll be back and park in the garage.

My friends and I had an amazing time at Haven, the food was great, especially the seafood risotto. Our sever Matt was also great, attentive and funny. One downside to the evening was that shortly after arriving we wanted to change our table from indoor to outdoor seating and the hostess was not accommodating and gave us the excuse that we would have to come back inside shortly because of a 9pm noise ordinance - this sounded like she made that up. We ended up having a good time anyway.

we had outside table which was just beautiful . Steak entrees that do not include any sides always a bit disappointing - then having to pay $11 for each vegetable/ potato
Beet salad was only frisee greens - could have been better

This is definitely a great restaurant to bring a date and the food is good. Service was attentive even as the evening went on and the restaurant became more busy. I've seen a lot of reviews of Haven regarding their food and how it is seemingly hit or miss. Thankfully the food was on point for my visit. However, I did find it curious that the food came out to our table at room temperature so I do wonder how long it was sitting before being brought to our table.

Be sure to double check your reservation if you book through OpenTable. When I arrived they didn't seem to have my reservation but fortunately I came in early enough that the restaurant was still able to accommodate me.

It was great food great service and a fantastic view.
We sat outside. Very nice.

Only one criticism. They need to have some lower priced wines by the bottle. We love good wine but not wine snobs and the cheapest bottle on the menu $55.00. They could do better then that.

My wife and I consider Haven as one of the best in the area and try to visit throughout the year. I would like to bring to your attention that the manager this particular evening took control of a few customer complaints with the upmost professionalism, she is definitely an asset to your business. As usual your floor staff is second to none and the food is always cooked to perfection. Thank you !

You cannot overestimate the beauty of the view — the NYC skyline — as the rays of setting sun glisten off the Hudson and the towers of Manhattan. The food is fine, though sometimes a bit too creative. The service was superb, allowing us time to savor the experience. I do wish there was greater price point range, especially for the starters and the wines.

Just last week my wife and I celebrated our 1yr anniversary here and it was amazing. The food, ambiance and service was A++ and we will definitely dine here again, as well as bring friends to share the experience. The server Mat is just the BEST! His service alone had my wife and I wanting to come back. He’s very personable, he made sure that we were good on drinks and that our food came out in a timely manner. I will definitely recommend this place as well as recommend if applicable for people to have Mat as their server! Thank You Haven and Mat for the great experience.

Haven was the perfect setting for my father's 84th birthday this month. Lovely setting/atmosphere. Inventive menu. Unique flavors in the salmon entree. The prix fix was a good value and we were surprised that the portions were the same as the a la carte choices. This is not a cheap place to eat out, but it is wonderful for a special occasion.

I’m in the fence everything was great but my entree was nothing that I expected from reading the menu. The meat was cold and there was so many I don’t even know how to describe it wonton straws covered the three un-cooked stumps of zucchini and the carrots. I didn’t know what to say about the raw egg on the zucchini nothing like the picture I saw. A Hymalian crusted poached it was not. The wonton straws were put as a distraction.
My friend had her meal sent back because the steak was well done and she asked for it to be medium. I felt so bad returning my dish I ate what I could and hid the rest in the straws. I felt bad because they were treating me for dinner for my birthday. However the dessert was great I possibly would go back for appetizers and dessert not the fantom entrees that are advertised on google. We live and learn.

Excellent service, requested a table on patio, none available when we arrive. We were served drinks at an inside table and transferred to the patio within 15 minutes.
Food first class, wife had Duck and I had the Chilean Sea Bass, both outstanding as well as the appetizers.
A great place to see the city, without the expense of tolls and parking
This is a 10 plus restaurant.

I planned a surprise birthday dinner for my boyfriend. We had a beautiful view of the city and our food and drinks were delicious. Danny our waiter was extremely polite and knowledgable, we had the scallops and the lobster risotto croquettes which were outstanding, for dinner we had the shirt steak and sea bass which I would eat 3 times a week if I could. And the churro cobbler should be illegal. We're already planning a return visit!
