    Haven is my new favorite spot in Brookhaven. It's a mix of all my faves: fine wine, patio with christmas lights, and fried oysters. LOVE LOVE LOVE the staff also! The owner is an amazing guy and the bartenders are very fun.

    Lovely experience. We drove to Haven from Roswell so had expectations for a memorable experience. Haven did not disappoint. This was a birthday celebration and there were 4 of us. The menu had a good mix of "safe" dishes for the less adventurous and some chef-inspired items for those more willing to try something unique. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced considering the high quality ingredients and skilled preparation. The server, although friendly, knowledgeable and competent, seemed to be off in a hurry most of the time. Our friend ordered a Manhattan and raved about the house-aged rye. We plan to return to Haven.

    Haven is one of my go-to places around Atlanta. The staff is always very attentive and the food is always on point. The menu has changed slightly since the last time I visited and they've expanded their steak choices. It can be a little loud at times but it was a Friday night so it's to be expected. We had reservations for 8 p.m., arrived at 7:50 p.m. and we were seated immediately on a busy night. I cannot get enough of this restaurant. It always lives up to expectations and I go back as often as possible.

    We had a small farewell dinner for two close friends and the experience for everyone was very enjoyable. We picked Thursday night with a table on their totally elegant patio, and had a pleasant surprise as a great three piece band was playing. We had dinner and brunch before at The Haven and continue to completely enjoy the experience. All aspects are excellent. The grilled pork chop was the best chop I have every had, and others in the party order the salmon which was excellent as well. Great evening

    My husband and I had dined at Havens before and though the food was good found it very noisy so when our adult daughter selected Haven as the restaurant in which to celebrate her birthday, we didn't have high expectations we were wrong! They seated us in a very large comfortable booth for our party of 5 and it was very easy to hear our table conversations. The food was delicious and the server brought out a wonderful dessert and ice cream for the birthday girl. She seemed relieved to have the cute candle on the plate instead of a server singing. DEFINITELY was a good choice and we will go back to Havens

    Took business clients to this neighborhood restaurant instead of the 'usual' Buckhead eateries. Very happy with choice, hay stack as appetizer was a big hit, great seasonal tomatoes as salad was outstanding, dinner entrees were bone in rib-eye, filet ( a little pricey), but very good, outstanding trout and pork chop - both well presenting and equally tasty. For dessert table shared blueberry and peach dishes both finished the meal with success.

    The Thursday night crew all walked up from the neighborhood and as we sat on the patio - the sky opened up! The staff did a great job (sans closing the umbrellas to keep them from flying around and tipping over) in getting everyone a table.... We ended up with many of our friends from the hood at Valenza (just a few steps down) as we "walked between the raindrops back to their door" (Donald Fagan reference)... What a treat for our neighborhood for GREAT food and Michael's "ear" to keep one of the best guys in music in the country (a TRUE Atlanta institution is Tom Grose) *Tom, we just hope your equipment made it through all that rain!!!) The food is fine, the weather is NORMALLY great and the music can't be beat! A REAL Treat (sans water)!

    My friends and I enjoyed the food immensely. It was good. However, the noise level was deafening. We could not talk without shouting. We could not understand our waitress when she was speaking. The tables are so close together that you can hardly get out. The women's restroom had only one toilet so the line was very long. There are many places like the Haven, for instance Murphy's, Brio, The Palm, etc. so for the same $100 for two we can go someplace else.

    Haven is one of those neighborhood gems that you always wished you lived close to. Fortunately for me, I do, and I frequent it often! It is definitely foodie enough for a romantic dinner with great wine and plenty of ambiance, and casual enough for you to pull up a stool at the bar and start chatting with whomever is next to you. Very helpful and friendly staff as well as some neighborhood 'regulars' that always make you feel welcome. 'Burger night' on Tuesdays is a must try and a really great deal. Thursdays are for live music...fantastic band and a lot of fun.

    Dined here with my boyfriend an hour before closing on Sunday night. Service was attentive enough but informal and lackluster. There were some interesting flavor combinations but everything sounded more interesting than it tasted. Squash blossoms were tasty but over-fried. Scallops were a very generous portion, and again, tasted good but nothing too special. Only standout was dessert: blueberry fried pie was DELICIOUS, and one of the best desserts I've had in a long time. We have a gift card for this place so will use remaining bucks on walking over for dessert and coffee a few more times. We'll skip the rest. Had high expectations for this restaurant, and we felt let down.

    We had a party of 8 and we were seated at a round table that was a bit claustrophobic. The wait staff were excellent and attentive. Most agreed that the food was delicious. The brownie with caramel ice cream and the blueberry fried pie with lemon curd were divine. The portions on the sammy were small, mostly croissant. Good reviews on the cheese grits, eggs benedict and crab cake benedict.

    Had Sunday Brunch, which was great - really good food, and very good service. The occasion was spoilt though by the 4 young women at the next table, screaming and being genuinely over excited. Not the restaurants fault, but in a place known for being loud anyway (bad acoustics maybe?) the last thing you want is a gaggle of heckling girls making it impossible to have a conversation within your own party.

    We have been coming here for years. The only thing that kept it from being 5 stars is the outside patio can get clogged with exhaust from time to time because of how the cars are parked outside. I feel management should address this with the valets. It is a fixable situation with some training, but despite having mentioned it a few times, it doesn't appear to have been addressed. the food was amazing as I have come to expect and our server was attentive and efficient.

    We received a giftcard for Haven after recently moving into the neighborhood, and decided to try it out for a date night. We could not have been more impressed! The service was outstanding, with the waitress energetically going over highlights on the menu and graciously making our requested adjustments to the entrees we ordered. During dinner, the owner came over to check on the meal and struck up a great conversation. After learning that we were recently married and new to the neighborhood, he sent over a free dessert, the fried blueberry pie with extra scoops of citrus ice cream. We did not have a bad bite the entire evening and certainly will go back!
