Under New ManagementThe food continues to be great but the new management has come in to promise less turnaround. The service was very good but the restaurant was only three-quarters full. I hope they succeed because this is a great spot6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMtasted like homeThe food was very good. The rolls were amazing, and the okra and shrimp and grits were YUMMY appetizers. Portions were very large. Our only complaint is that everything was very salty. The peach upside down cake was a great end to the evening.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFried Green TomatoesThe food here is phenominal! For nostalgia reasons I wanted to try the fried green tomatoes, just to see what is so special about them. If you wanted to try them, this would be the place. If you enjoy fried green tomatoes you will crave them later. I have had the fish of the day, & salads, & have yet to find one thing that is not exceptional, BUT the fried green tomatoes top the list!
There is one thing that I will think twice about before having a business luncheon here. The noise level when large groups are around makes it very difficult to have a normal level conversation. Sounds carry, so if there is a large group that is enjoying their lunch, everyone knows it. Just something to think about.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat LunchThe Lunch was perfect. It was a great price for the quality of food.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!!The shrimp corn dogs are awesome!! The house made honey was great!! HIghly recommend Haven for dinner!!!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food.It was our first dining experience at Havon. We started with good appetizer, continued with creative yet not impressive salad ( watermelon and tomato), was introduced to excellent entree (we tried two fish dishes) and finished with fantastic dessert. Wine list can use a revision specially on bottles below $50. Service was very professional.
Competition is fierce among restaurants with this price range in Houston. We thought that Hevon might lose its edge if it does not come up with more vibrant ambience. We will come back to explore the bar and more beautiful dishes.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends Food & FunWonderful evening... Chef Randy's Team is excellent... A party of 8 that will return soon. Steaks, fish and artistic presentation soft-shell crab were all excellent !!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to this restaurantI have been to this restaurant several times and I have never been disappointed. Highly recommend!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful dining experienceI enjoyed my birthday dinner there with friends. The menu was intriguing, the food delicious and the wine list very solid. Service was attentive wtihout being intrusive and the restaurant itself has a very light, airy feel to it that made the evening very special. Highly recommended.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceEverything went well and the staff was on point. Drinks were good, food was good.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven RulesTremendous experience as always- fresh food creatively & beautifully presented! Dined on first night of a menu change and food was outstanding. Main courses of Gulf Fish with head on shrimp & horseradish dusted butternut puree melted in my mouth & the Grilled Gulf fish (hot) on a cold bean salad with greek vinaigrette was perfect for a warm night. Two of his best dishes ever!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dining RequestOur son has taken several cooking classes at Haven and requested this special place for his 27th birthday dinner. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience. Each of the four gathered at our table had a different fish dish. Each was expertly prepared and executed - a delight for the senses! The Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards was superb!!!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great experience!My husband, daughter and I went the first time for a birthday celebration. We had an early reservation so the noise level was low. Greg was our server and he was very knowledgable about the menu and very gracious with our questions; his suggestion were great,too. Can't say enough about the food - local, beautifully presented and delicious! Don't miss the Tomato Sundae!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYou go now!Great service
Run don't walk!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch with friendsGreat place to end the summer in Houston. With friends going in different directions, it was a perfect spot to relax, laugh and enjoy the wonderful food and service. See you all in September!!
Thank you.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our experienceThe food and ambiance were very good. The best part about our experience was the waitress, Natalie. She was warm, friendly and very knowledgable. You have a real gem.
It was a great place to celebrate our son's 30th birthday. Cathy Wagner5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMchicken dishThe fried chicken with the 2 sides was enough for 2 people and there were leftovers to be brought home. It was the best restaurant chicken that I have had. In regards to the sides, it is not anywhere that one can get spoetzel which was delicious! The other side was creamed cabbage which was different, but I will try the greens next time since they are supposed to be really good.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dinnerThe food is always so thoughtful. Fresh and flavorful, interesting takes on traditional food. One of the true gems in Houston.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent chichen fired steakexcellent chichen fired steak riff with unusally large blob of creamed spinach for a side dish.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall extravegancesThe Heirloom tomato Sundae was truly exquisite - a must
Fish and shrimp also delicious - but overpriced as was the dessert - I should not have left hungry but the Food was delicious, fresh and presented well....portions were just way too small all around.
Daughter would not recommend the quail entre5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but delicious entreesNeighborhood gem. We had the fried chicken dinner. It was quite delicious but pricey and the two sides that came with the entree were small portions. Our crab cake appetizer was delicious but expensive at $20. Fun atmosphere and the patio seating is enjoyable. If price is not an issue, highly recommend Haven.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerI took my wife here for her birthday. Although it was a Monday night and the ambiance wasn't what we've experienced at Haven before, our server, Natalie, was still on her "A" game. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection, and gave just the right amount of attention. The food was outstanding as usual, and their wine list is tough to rival. We'll be back!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service, LocationThird visit, this time for Mother's Day brunch.
Fixed price menu had plenty of choices. Snapper with shrimp seasoned well. Chocolate ice box pie is best anywhere.
Very importantly they honored our request for a quiet table off the main dining room.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experienceGreat experience here for Mother's Day dinner. We typically wouldn't bring children, but for mother's day we did. They were so welcoming of our bunch and we were so grateful! Excellent service. Waiting times between courses can be a bit long, so enjoy your cocktails and eat slowly! Amusements platter was delish (deviled eggs, pickled beets, celery with homemade pimiento cheese). Gaspacho with lump crabmeat was refreshing but the Crawfish Beignets were absolutely divine and won our hearts. Lambchops and Fish and Shrimp were cooked so well, roasted vegetables also great. The coconut bread pudding was so creamy and delicious. We will be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day CelebrationWe enjoyed a terrific experience at Haven this past Mother's Day. It was lunch for the family out on the deck. What an experience. Attentive, friendly - real - service from the moment we sat down. We had brunch specialties, all of which were made with high quality, fresh ingredients that were prepared perfectly. We will be back!! Thanks for an excellent, relaxing dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentMade a reservation for Mother's day and had no problem getting in. There weren't as many people as there normally is at Mother's day brunch but that was nice because it wasn't too crowded. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. I really enjoyed the portion size since most meal are two large for me. All and all I would go again and bring others.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day GiftI have dined here for lunch on several occasions, however this time my mother and I enjoyed a wonderul brunch. The cocktails were great and the food was delicious. It was not crowded so we could still hear each other speaking, while enjoying the light music in the background.
I even had plenty to take home for left overs. Definitely would recommend this place again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely dining experienceOutdoor patio was pleasant -- does not seem 100 yards from Hwy 59. Salads are exceptional, the queen snapper w/ head-on shrimp top quality and tasty, as was the amber-jack on quinoa. even the post dinner espresso was better than I've had anywhere else I can remember.
Patrick, our server, was top-knotch.
Hope to return many times.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't wait to get backI've been to Haven twice within the last 2 weeks and was not disappointed again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousI would completely recommend this restaurant. For appetizers, we had a little bit of everything. the shimp & grits (I could eat those grits everyday for every meal) & the corndogs were raved about. For the main course, I had the free range chicken with the spatzle. It was absolutely heavenly. I couldn't stop eating it!! I got a side of roasted vegetables which I recommend as we'll. the dessert was by far the est part. Get the coconut bread pudding. You could even skip the meal and just get that. The pecan pie was delicious as well.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven is AmazingI love everything about this restaurant. The décor was beautiful. The fountain outside is a photo opportunity. The food was incredible. My waitress was very attentive. I have nothing bad to say. I will return.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeat PerformanceI'm never disappointed by my meal at Haven. The food is consistently always tasty and I love some of the new items being put on the menu especially the Bayou Stew.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite find in HoustonI have been visiting the Houston area for the past 6 years. Haven has been the best find. Great appetizers perfect for sharing a bunch for the table. My entree of tile fish bayou stew was outstanding. The jack and coke float for dessert was very tasty but the homemade cream cheese cheesecake was beyond good. Wine list is very affordable. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. We can't wait to come back next year.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice ExperienceGreat food, great ambiance, service was okay...seemed inexperienced and water refill took too long. Prices are a little too high for such a comfortable menu...even though food was upscale...could come down a little. Probably will only go back for a special occassion once or twice a year.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic first visitThis was our first visit to Haven for everyone in our party of six. Everyone absolutely loved their food & found it to be unique, delicious and well prepared. Service was attentive.

Their French press coffee is the best I've had in a restaurant setting in Houston.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService was kind of sketchyService was kind of sketchy but food was outstanding.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time Awesome and Will be BackThis was my first visit to haven having had it on my list to try for a long time and it did not disappoint. My dining companion and I had the shrimp corn dogs and heirloom tomoato sundae to start. The "ice cream" on the tomato salad was so refreshing with the delicious fresh tomatoes. We then shared the family style fried chicken dinner which was amazing. Loved the gravy, cheddar grits, friedn green tomato croutons and crispy brussels sprouts on the side (although the sprouts were not as expected, but still yummy). Great cocktails and wine selection. And, the patio is a great option given its space and lovely waterfall. Will definitely be back for lunch to try the chicken fried steak I saw on the menu here but is only for lunch!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStellar food and serviceThe food was creative and amazing. There were several dishes that at first sound questionable, but came out fabulous. Our server helped guide us through some of the unusual sounding combination and made wonderful recommendations.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat , easy spot for a recentGreat , easy spot for a recent lunch (but also good for dinner). Lovely patio if the the weather cooperates. Food is always consistently good. Love their salted dinner rolls. Menu has some staples, but also changes with the season. Daily lunch specials are a good value. try fr the fried oyster tostado.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMService was impeccable, ambienceService was impeccable, ambience great.

Attentive and discreet service.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time. Great food. WaiterGreat time. Great food. Waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly but was incredibly slow. Been there twice and enjoyed it. But the waiter left us alone for an extended time (both visits) before taking our order. Perhaps that's your style and my father would love the slow relaxed pace. I, however would prefer more prompt service.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative brunch items distinguishInnovative brunch items distinguish Haven from the routine brunches3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery, very nice except forVery, very nice except for the loud noise from the kitchen.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven is our favorite restaurant.Haven is our favorite restaurant.
