Haven Gastropub + Brewery, Pasadena
Two Words: Pork JamMy finance and I came here on a whim, because they are part of the KCRW Fringe Benefits; we're so glad that we did and we can't WAIT to go back!! The beer was awesome, but we really enjoyed the wine selection. The food was stellar, and we were especially into the pork jam. Seriously, it's like bacon-butter, and so delicious you will need the extra bread they offer you! Next time, we'll be adventurous and try the beef tongue! Thanks, Haven Gastropub! We'll be back!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistant GoodWe are regulars at the Haven Gastro Pub, and love to look up at the specials blackboard to see what is new for the evening. They never disappoint!
We both had the Hungarian Goulash this time, and it was spicy and delicious. Also shared some of those great deviled eggs as appetizers.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pub food with unique twistsMy husband had the chicken burger and it was very unique in flavor with mashed potatoes in the middle. I had the mac and cheese and I have to say it was one of the better ones i've had at any restaurant. they used 3 cheeses and it was not too salty or overwhelming.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Environment to relaxExcellent service and food delivery was quick and deliciously exciting. The waitress was very knowledgable of the drinks, food and had recommend some excellent food and beers to drink. I just wish I was able to purchase that Growlier thing, they now provide, because their house brews are excellent. I highly recommend this place to anyone especially if you want to have a group party. Prices are a little high for food, but it because of the quality and type of excellent food items they list.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my two kids.This place was fine for my infant and 4 year old as we sat near the quiet back. The restaurant has sport programed tv's but that was ok for me, a tv starved parent, makeing the most of a family night out for Mother's day. The food was just great. Mac and cheeze for my girl, braised pork, Hungarian goolash stew and an arugula salad, had us all sharing plates. And then there is beer, on tap, lots of them. :)
Park in the public lot off Fair Oaks though as the one directly across from the restuarant has a line a mile long at nights.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNight out with friendsGreat place to go with friends. Nice selection of beer and wine which if you can't make of your mind you can order a flight. Menu was interesting with unique food combinations which made it fun and adventurous.

Keri, our server, helped us make our dinner selections, and everything she suggested was spectacular.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch service & foodExcellent service and great new menu items! The hostess and our waitress were very friendly and attentive. I couldn't have been happier with the quality of the food and service. I especially enjoyed the truffle fries and spaghetti squash. I was also very happy with our off menu cocktails (they have a full bar in addition to an extensive beer list). Even though it was busy, they honored our reservation request for a booth and we were very pleased with their top notch service.
Would definitely recommend Haven and are looking forward to our next visit!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHad to go back for more...Wow...what a pleasant surprise. I went online to look for a reasonably priced restaurant in Pasadena. That's not easy to find. The menu is original and the food is brilliantly prepared. Our server was very knowledgable and helpful. Everything we ordered was amazing, lamb shank, Monterey burger with a glaze that is to die for, truffle oil fries, homemade potato chips. I liked it so much I went again the next night with a friend.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are regular customers andWe are regular customers and love this place. We decided to take some long time friends there for dinner to show them something different in Old Town Pasadena. The restaurant did not dissapoint! Great food as always and excellent service.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything we've had has beenEverything we've had has been outstanding. The McCormick Alley grass fed burger with truffle fries is great.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent - DONT MISS THIS PLACEExcellent....Excellent....Excellent. Haven Gastropub is just what is proports to be. They are a great neighborhood place with a highly impressive secltion of food and beer along with some great wines. I don't usually drink beer but with pub food, it is almost required. Their selection provided something for everyone, whether you always drink beer or almost never. There was one that I would certainly agree with the staff that was a desert beer. I have never had anyting like that before. Definately a keeper and will return often.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
