    Visited on Saturday, November 22nd for a Pre-Theater lunch and I have to say I was VERY impressed. What a beautiful Hotel right in the middle of Times Square. The rooftop restaurant is now fully tented and heated for the winter months and is decorated in a beautiful Moroccan theme. The food and service were top-notch. Our server, Darwhin could not have been nicer. Not sure the "haters" actually went to Haven, because their reviews could not be more WRONG. Please do NOT listen to the "haters" as you would be doing yourself a grave injustice not to experience Haven. We will be returning in the near future!!!

    We were seated promptly under heaters that ran continuously that were so hot it made it hard to even breathe. We saw our waiter 3 times over the course of dinner. Once to take our order, another time to drop off our check and lastly to bring the receipt. I have to say the chicken i ordered was delicious but the side of fries looked and tasted like they came from a fast food restaurant. For the cost, I was not impressed at all. My friend ordered the tilapia which came with couscous which was so dry he had to continuously drink water to amke it go down. With never seeing our waiter for refills of water, the couscous was not eaten. Definitely not a pleasant experience and cannot recommend.

    Haven is the kind of place you take someone if they like a nice view. The Moroccan theme is real nice but I liked last summer's winter wonderland theme better. They get to see the city from a great view and the food is not bad either. The chicken tangine and the curry shrimp would be my suggestion as both are very good. The servers tend to be pretty busy during happy hour and dinner so be prepared to wait a bit if you need something, like your check. However, they try to get you out of there on a timely manner since the place is always packed so the food and other things come fast.

    The waitstaff is super friendly and accommodating. We arrived a half hour before our reservation and they graciously seated us. Awesome food. Great filet and fish. Also great spot for drinks and appetizers. Liked it so much, we sent folks there just days later. Can't go wrong with this little gem.

    I found this place from a deal on Urban Daddy and decided to give it a try for a friend's birthday. From the moment we entered the lobby was quite impressed with the decor, ambiance and service! The only glitch was it took the staff a little time to come to our table and greet us, but from then on everything was perfect. Glad I ignored some of the negative reviews I saw online..as everything including the food was fabulous. The manager and our waitress Lauren J were extremely helpful in making my friend's birthday a special occasion. And imagine our surprise when our waitress came out as one of the belly dancers of the evening! Very pleased all around!

    Went there this past Saturday night (light rain), and they had installed the plastic/see-through cover because of the rain. I had to say it was just right - if you like to be a little close Time Square. Food and drinks were great! Hope anyone that goes can feed off the energy of the place and its surrounding.

    The building is not so tall, it is surrounded by much taller skyscrapers. So while the view is unique, it isn't that spectacular. The ambiance inside is quite nice, they did a good job with the place. It is more of a youthful atmosphere with a lot of lounge style music being played. The food is good quality but the portions are on the smaller end. Due to security concerns with the place being near Times Square, they require you to check in any extra bags, umbrellas, etc, before going up. I wish the restaurant made people aware of this on their website. Overall it is a pretty ok place, but there is nothing there that makes me want to come back, if that makes sense...?

    Haven Rooftop for lunch was good, not great. The service was a bit slow and our food was just ok. I went in late October, so perhaps things are better in the summer or during a busier time. I would go again, but probably not.

    What a lovely place to celebrate a special birthday. To sit among the clouds as the sun goes down, to watch the stars come out. Food was very good, wait staff was outstanding. We had hoped to see the sunset, didn't realize that buildings around us would mar the view, but in the end it didn't much matter. We asked to be seated in a more quiet, out of the way spot...were told that a group of pre teens was coming in and were probably better off where we were...we never saw the teens come in...so...not sure what happened there...we would have preferred a table not right in front of the elevator...but our waitress (Lauren) was so terrific, it didn't matter after awhile!

    Please don't do what I did and disregard the reviews thinking that you will just give this place a shot. You'll be better off spending your money some place where the food actually taste like it should be classified as food. A place that doesn't water down even the sodas. And where the staff doesn't look at you with total and utter shock when you ask them to explain a dish. Please, I beg of you. I for one will never eat here again.

    Whilst the food was good and the roof top setting very funky, we were disappointed with the really fast food service and rather brusk service from our waitress- our main course being served before we had finished our starters. Guests were being turned around in 40 mins!! Our request for tea and coffee didn't go down well either- we thought they would have rather served us more alcohol? The bar security staff were also rather heavy handed and officious!!

    Our order was ready less than 10 minutes after we ordered, which was definitely disconcerting, because it should take longer than that to cook chicken... The food wasn't good and the view was mostly of other rooftops and sidestreets. There are other rooftop restaurants that will give you a better view.

    It starts when you try to enter the hotel through the front door and the doorman won't let you in, but then tells you to go through the steak restaurant next door. You do and a hostess escorts you through a side door to take the elevator inside the hotel, where you are standing 20 feet from the door you could have easily just walked through... and goes downhill from there. It's on the roof but that's the best thing it has going for it. Sorta touristy, kinda tacky, the pitcher of margaritas were WAY too sweet, the food mediocre (too salty fish tacos) the help, so-so and the exit from the bossy elevator captain, "Stand over here. No, I have to split up your group... stand over there!", capped off my, "I'll never go back there again" feeling.

    We sat by a window overlooking St. Mary the Virgin Church. The view was beautiful. Once the sun set, the lights from the Times Square area washed over the rooftop of the church, adding to the ambiance of the restaurant. The food was very good--a collection of appetizers and small plates great for sharing. The tuna tartare and the truffle fries were our favorites.

He wasn't smiling it greeting tables just. My server looked very nice but have bad service, wasn't friendly and looked like she was annoyed. The only nice person was the host, who was very welcoming and sat us down before our reso.

    We had trouble looking for it I called for directions and they were not helpful. We got there we got our sits, and the table was not stable. The waiters was not very knowledgeable about the menu. I asked about the prefix menu and she said I don't know what that is. I had seen it online and outside at the entrence . The menu is bar food not to much to pick from. We order calamari and it was good. We order wings and they were ok. And my little one had the sliders and fries she liked the sliders but the fries had a weird taste. I order a mojito it was ok but they give me an old lime on it. I order a second drink I did not have the menu and the waiters again did not know. And last they did not have chocolate mousse cake which was disappointing.

    I booked dinner there for my partner's birthday, so it was just the two of us. The views aren't what they say they were, you sat on top of one another-tables too close. Very pricey; got two shareable plates, a basket of ff, and two drinks and it was just shy of $100. They will automatically add an 18% tip to your bill (whether you think the service wasworth it or not) then when you get the credit card slip, there was a line for additional gratuity. I would not recommend this place, not worth it. Would hate to have seen the bill if we ordered entrees.
