Had 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.

Top notch service & food
Excellent 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!

I have been to both of their
I have been to both of their locations, and I have never had a bad meal or experience at either of them.
Keri, our server, helped us make our dinner selections, and everything she suggested was spectacular.

Pub Crawl Worthy!
A relaxing atmosphere reminiscent of an upscale London Pub - Don't look for a lot of variety on the menu - enjoy an amazing selection of Beer and Wine - order some delicious starters and bring some friends.

Night out with friends
Great 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. Our favorite part was the desserts they where delicious.

Took 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.

Great Environment to relax
Excellent 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.

Great pub food with unique twists
My 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.

We 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.

Two Words: Pork Jam
My 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!

Our server did an excellent
Our server did an excellent job. She was energetic, helpful, and always there when we needed something. The food was terrific! The mac & cheese, pretzel, deviled eggs and truffle fries were sooo good. We hardly needed to order the sandwiches. Everything had bold but not overwhelming taste. It was all about the taste; it was not just food to fill space in your stomach. However, there wasn't any problem filling your stomach; the portions were sizeable.

DineLA Shrimp/Grits & Shepherd Pie!
Went just for DineLA - though the server only gave us the standard menus and specials. We had to ask for DineLA,and he returned with it promptly. Delicious bacon shrimp and cheesy grits....delicious shepherds pie....delicious homemade doughnut holes with Nutella and and actual burnt sugar caramel dipping sauce - not the creamy bottled caramel - delish!! Radicchio and frisee salad with coddled egg and bacon lardons had a truffle vinegar dressing...fresh and tasty however a touch of sweetness would have better balanced all the bitter greens. Not a beer aficionado, but of the pages of beers offered, 6 are made in-house.

Another Old Town Gem
Large wine and beer list, knowledgeable staff, great atmosphere. I had the Vegetable Spaghetti and it was wonderful! An excellent option for vegetarians. Bar food with a twist.

Tasty food wide selection of beers
Enjoyed a weekend dinner with family here. Everything we ordered was very tasty. The wait staff was incredibly helpful and made excellent recommendations on beer and food. Would definitely return.

I love that the menu changes for me and the burger remains the same for my husband. Salads are always a hit and the new grilled flatbread with creamed corn was amazing

Great beer selection
Liked the heirloom tomato salad and the Brussels sprouts.McCormick Alley burger was good but the fries cooled off quickly. Great beers.

This place is really rad.
Been meaning to try this place for a long while. So glad we did. Great beer list, love the short rib tacos, and we had Kari, the funniest and best waitress in the world!

Best burger in years! Amazing lemony Brussels sprouts with prosciutto! Fabulous fries! And also on the menu are inventive rifs on other pub staples. Great beer selection, an acceptable wine list and full bar makes Haven a fun place to go with friends or after a movie. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Prices are moderate, but bill does add up with all the little tempting extras to order.

Best burger in town
THe McCormick burger has gotten many reviews on Yelp, and with good reason! This is quite possibly the best burger I've ever had! If it had blue cheese crumbles or sauteed mushrooms on it though...well...I would have died and gone to Heaven. But this burger really is a winner. You won't be disappointed!
