  • "This was my third visit to Log Haven and I enjoyed everything they had to offer. Jeremy is the third wait staff that was very knowledgeable about everything they had to offer. The food was great this time as well as the other two times I have visited. The first visit was with a group of ten and when the food was being served, other waitstaff assisted with the delivery of each plate. No one was waiting for their dinner. I HIGHLY recommend Log haven for any outing you have in mind."

  • "I had heard good reports about this American-Fusion restaurant, and had to try it for my 20th anniversary. I ordered the daily special which included a ribeye steak, pommes frites and candied brussels sprouts. The steak was tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection. Hands down the best steak I have had in a long time, perhaps that I have ever had. Our server, Jeremy, was just outstanding and I appreciated his suggestions. The restaurant looks like an old cabin, with lots of space and subdued lighting. It was a little noisy, but that was mainly because the guests seated at a nearby table got progressively louder with each bottle they uncorked!"

  • "I took my girlfriend here for a bit of a special occasion. We hadn't seen each other in two months and I had come to visit her in a break in schooling and work. It was fantastic. The ambience was great. The fireplace couch before dinner was a great touch. Dinner was so great. We had the homemade nachos, and then, I had the buffalo, she had the New York steak. Absolutely some of the best food I have ever had. 5 stars for sure!"

  • "Loved our experience! Waiter was knowledgable and fun. Ambience was great. Food was delicious."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Nice place and great tasting food but our service was rushed and forced. It was in direct contrast to the relaxed and cozy setting. Prices were reasonable but pricey for the specials which were small. We'll go back for special occasions but primarily because of the location."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Not too far away, yet tucked into the mountains - this is a superb getaway from the city scene. The quality is food is good, but some "recommended" dishes were overly complicated. Unnecessarily ambitious in the blend of (too) many flavors. I might choose some simpler entrees next time. The server was gracious but a bit amateur. The views and ambience were exceptional. Desserts were above average."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Couldn't believe that a restaurant of this quality and number of accolades would be in the middle of a national forest. Keep drivin', you'll get there........."

  • "I took my lady to Log Haven for a "make up" Valentines dinner since I was traveling on the actual date. From walking up the walkway to the restaurant from the Valet to sitting in front of the fireplace with the great ambiance (complete with piano music) with a cocktail waiting for the table, the Log Haven atmosphere never disappoints and is always a favorite. The greeter recommended a new drink when I ordered a High West Old Fashioned . . . the "Log Haven Hippster" which was quite enjoyable. The server was excellent in his explanations of the food and specials and the food was five star all the way. I have never been disappointed here and this will always be the choice for those really special occasions."

  • "My husband and I decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary at the Log Haven with our two kids. We loved the ambience, the service was great and the servers were fantastic with our kids. It is likely we expected more from the food and left a little disappointed. Not quite fit for foodies but definitely great for a romantic outing."

  • "Log Haven is such a wonderful treasure. The atmosphere of the cabin with the views of the waterfalls in the Wasatch mountains is amazing, but to top it all off they offer the most delicious and healthy food."

  • "I've been coming to Log Haven for years and I appreciate the management of Chef Dave and GM Ian - they constantly amaze me with their finger on culinary trends. Case in point - the small plate/petite wiener schnitzel paired with the Gruner Veltliner - wowzer! Log Haven is lovely in every setting, but it's the commitment to new concepts and flavors that keep me coming back. You are a very bright star in our foodie-town and I appreciate that you have lead the way year after year. See you soon!"

  • "My wife and I went there to celebrate Valentine's a few days early, as it is our tradition. The scenery is what makes this place. It's very romantic. The food was above average but not the best meal I've ever had. The service was only "good," and left a bit more to be desired."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "It's Log Haven - what more can you say! Excellent venue for any special occasion! Took my wife for Valentine's dinner and everything from the valet to the greeting to the wait staff was wonderful. The food was delicious and we were well taken care of."

  • "I love Log Haven. They have an excellent menu, a wide selection of wine, live pianist, and it's location is second to none."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Log Haven has been our "go-to" for special occasions for the past few years - ever since we discovered it. The menu was very balanced between more traditional American fare (with flair) and more gamey food (elk, bison, duck). The sides of eggplant pate and polenta were amazing alongside the filet mignon - but all of my fellow diners loved their dishes (pork, fish). Background piano music and flowers made for a wonderful experience."

  • "The only negative is that our waiter was unaware that he was covering our table. Once he finally arrived he made up for our long wait by comp-ing us the appetizer. The food was very good and our waiter was excellent. We will definitely go back again."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Overall, we had a lovely evening. The service was excellent; our server was friendly, attentive, and unobtrusive. The pace of the dinner was perfect. We sat fireside, and enjoyed a romantic evening for two. The wine list included European, domestic, and local selections. Our salads were dressed just right, with a wonderful vinaigrette. My husband ordered the pork tenderloin, which was moist and flavorful. I ordered the duck breast with pappardelle, and was disappointed. The duck was cut into very small chunks, not the sliced breast I expected. I would definitely return; the overall experience was very positive."

  • "Not a budget restaurant, but a wonderful example off the old adage that you get what you pay for. Superb service, wonderful ambience, and, of course, excellent food. The wine list is not extensive, but very adequate and surprisingly well priced."
