I was at this restaurant with my daughter celebrating our mutual birthday. It was our first time at the Haven, and we had a wonderful time. No one hassled us or tried to move us through, the wait staff was helpful, very sweet and very attentive. The decor was so much fun, and we both imagined how terrific the place must be in warm weather when you can dine alfresco. We had a couple of great cocktails, and the food was incredible. We were surpised with a delicious limoncello parfait for a birthday dessert, served with delicious coffee (which, to me, is essential.) The Haven Rooftop was right down the street from the theater, so the location was perfect. We will be back, and we'll bring friends!

Went there for supper with
Went there for supper with my partner for her first trip to NY..we chose Haven because its v.close to our hotel and Times SQ. nice ambience and we like the fact that Haven has glass side panels that allows its customers to have a side and street view from above unlike other rooftop bars whereby u can only look upwards. We were seated facing the church so we are not too sure whats the view is like nearer to Times Sq..Despite the cold nights NY had last week, it was comfortably warm in there, just like a ski resort :-)
Food choices are not bad and the mascarpone dessert was excellent!..n the service on a weekday night was considered pretty good.
Overall our experience there was v.good..

A VERY nice NYC spot! Food was excellent and our server was spot-on. Gratuity was automatically added to the bill...FYI.

Good ambience, terrific drinks and appetizers. The tuna tartare is simply amazing. Good night out on a rooftop!

Great Drinks for a Happy Happy Hour
The staff here was nothing other than amazing. They were accommodating to my group, even allowing us to switch tables when the group became too large for where we were sitting. The manager was friendly and the waiter was pretty great too even suggesting drinks and appetizers for us. The best part is that all of this was on a busy Friday evening. When you get such attentative service, it makes it easy for you to have a good time and want to return!!

perfect for a bite before Broadway
Haven was the perfect spot for a easy dinner before heading to the theater. It was not crowded at 6pm and the service was great. We felt like we were outdoors but, because it is still May and it was only in the 50's in the shade, Haven had the rooftop protected and heated. The chairs are not comfortable but it is meant as more of a outdoor space anyway. The proximity to the theater district is a plus and kept us from having to search for a cab at &:30 on a Saturday night! The tuna tartare was excellent and so was the branzino. Would eat there again.

Drinks After work
Stopped by for drinks and dinner with girlfriends. Staff was friendly. Food was great. We were seated right by the elevator and receiving area for the bar, so we didn't get to really enjoy a good ambiance.
Overall it was a good experience. Excellent for drinks and talking with friends.

What a great find in Midtown!
What a great find in Midtown! I asked for recommendations from the server and he recommended the chicken. It was so tender and moist. My friend had the scallops and she really raved about them. The drinks and coffee were also wonderful. We hope to return soon!

Up, up and away
Hidden away on 47th street atop the Sanctuary Hotel, this open air find is in the heart of the city. Attentive staff, good drinks list and food options. Lots of appetizers to chose from. Enjoyed it very much
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
great place to get drinks
This place is great for its location. Definately not a place to go for dinner.
Service is good, drinks are fantastic. I will definitely take my visiting friends there
For drinks, as of dinner, we will get it somewhere else.

Surely more impressive than thought
This rooftop dining/bar experience will leave me with loving the ambiance of New York City. This place offers not only fine dining, but important essence to the bar/lounge scene for this beautiful city. I highly recommend this place and cannot imagine a better first night's experience. I will definitely come back and see this place again.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
yes and no
great rooftop, lovely décor, great jazzy music
food was delicious but small portions
pitchers of sangria were ridiculously overpriced and were not tasty at all
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Roof top in the theater district
Hard not to like Haven Rooftop, nice greeting and service, bar areas very nice with covered lounges for seating, a few tall tables with bar stools. The dining tables are in the open, sun blocked by buildings in the early evening, so not too hot, but no cover. Drinks and food were both good with generous portions of fresh, tasty ingredients. Try the tuna tartare and mussels, both very good. Music a little loud and youthful for our dining taste, but nevertheless a fine scene, great for pretheater quick dinner. We will go back.

Hot Summer Fun
Being outside enjoying good food and sangria away from the noise of Manhattan. Haven rooftop was a great place for a pre-theater bite to eat. The Tuna was fresh, the white pie was so good. The sangria had lots of fresh fruit and was nice and sweet. Cozy couches if you are there for just drinks. Waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Cool Hidden Location!
Who would think that 9 floors up was this super cool outdoor venue!!! We had a celebration dinner with our family of 4 and it was great! We ordered off the small plates and appetizer menu. The tuna tartar, mussels, white pizza, beef carpaccio, ceviche, and prosciutto with melted mozzarella were all very beautifully prepared and delicious. The tab was expensive, but we were able to order happy order drinks ($7 for wine) with our meal.

Quite a find. Loved the outdoor
Quite a find. Loved the outdoor rooftop dining experience. Went early after a theatre matinee on Saturday, but we were not rushed out, did not leave until 930pm. Good attentive service. Diverse menu, with reasonable price point. Some areas had couches with pillows. Delightful venue. Would definitely recommend.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great View, Cool Location
Great rooftop venue just off Times Square, very groovy and a few famous faces thrown in. Food was pretty good from a limited menu, service a missed the mark a bit from the quite attractive waitresses who seemed to be a little lost at times. Overall a pretty good place to hang out and the view is spectacular.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and atmosphere
While searching for a rooftop restaurant Haven constantly came up ontop of the list and after dining there I can see why. Staff were lovely, food was divine and the whole place is just gorgeous. We will definitely dine here again and highly recommend it.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice to stay
Good food, beatiful place, good music and specials coktails!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pretty awesome place
Stumbled across this little gem by accident, went home and checked out the venue and read some reviews and went there the next night. Made a reservation and was in there immediately. Food was great, good service, awesome atmosphere, reasonable prices.

Great ambiance with eclectic
Great ambiance with eclectic music. Drinks could have been made better for the price paid. Food was okay. Excellent Tiramisu!

We spotted this roof top restaurant from our hotel room and thought how neat it looked so decided to try it. We were so glad we did. The people were great and the food was beautiful as well as delicious. Being up on that roof in New York felt like a magical place, so peaceful and alive. It's at The Sanctuary Hotel and it felt very appropriately named.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good rooftop for food and drinks
Food was very, very good. The tuna tartare is amazing! Drinks are well made but mixed drinks very overpriced. The view is nice and may keep you from paying much attention to the price of the drinks. Best to go during happy hour or just have a shot rather than several drinks.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone from the door man to the waitresses, all really nice down to earth people. Great food and great experience.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Best service ever!!!
We came here for dinner and a drink and ended up staying for seven hours!!! The food was good, the service outstanding, and the atmosphere fantastic!!! The server, manager, hostess, bussers, and bar tender were the most attentive I have EVER seen!! The atmosphere, music, and staff kept us there way longer than we expected to be there. We loved it and will return!!!!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing. I would recommend the Salmon and spinach. The view was pretty nice also. The overall experience was pleasant. Our young male waiter was the Best !
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view--stick to apps & drinks
Great view, fast service. We shared the tuna tower (excellent!) for an app. I had the lobster roll and my husband had the signature chicken dish. Was it gourmet? No, but it was a lovely, fun starlight evening. The drinks were fresh and alcohol was generous. When we go again, we will stick to apps and drinks.

Gem in Middle of Time Square
Went to Haven Rooftop on a summer Friday night to "show off" my way around the city to my visiting friends and none of us were disappointed! Great ambiance, cool breeze, partial views of time square buildings and lights. Drinks and service were excellent! I had a very good lobster roll and my friends tried the pizza. All good!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Trendy New York Dining
The food was wonderful and I love the ambiance. I had a wonderful time and the rooftop was amazing.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to be in time square, nice view and ambience! I recommend this restaurant to people who wants to havve a great diner with friends or for lovers.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ambience was nice, but since it was on a street, not an ave, view could be better. Food and prices were very good.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time in NY hence first time in the restaurant. Great welcome, friendly atmosphere. Very Nice place to be! We will be back!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
great experience but small portions
Everything about this place is great; view, atmosphere, decor, service, quality of the food. The only thing that is disapointing is the amount of food. There is really not much to eat, especially for the price. But the food is very good, presentation is beautiful and service is outstanding. Had a great time!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure
I have dined at the Haven several times. It is always a pleasure. Good food, service and atmosphere.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came to Haven after the theatre and it was just perfect for that time-late afternoon, while it was still warm.
We sat at a table for two with a view of a church roof and the street, way below. Not bad for New York!!
Our food was good, not outstanding, but delicious and filling.
We tried the Roasted Beet Salad, Pan Seared Salmon and Cajun Fish Tacos--all very good.
The dessert menu was not inspired, just 4 items such as flan, mousse, etc.
I would definitely recommend to a friend and would surely go back.
One thing was the speakers seemed to be pointed directly at tables and it was a bit loud. When we asked to have the speaker angled away they could not do that, but did turn the music lower.
All in all, a wonderful place.

My husband and I had just arrived to NY and were hungry, we thought we would give the Haven Roof top a try as being so convenient. We were pleasantly surprised by the buzzing environment, delicious food, awesome drinks and friendly staff. We certainly had a night to remember of our first night in NY, great view from the roof top bar also. We were hoping to get back there again before out trips end, but unfortunately ran out of time, until next time. Highly recommend it. well done :))
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredible view and good food
The view was incredible. We went around sunset time. Make sure to get a reservation because it gets busy and people had to wait a long time for a table. The ahi tuna and steak were great!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic ambience on the
Fantastic ambience on the roof deck near Times Square. Ate there twice on the same trip as it was such a cute place.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would definitely recommend for anyone trolling the more touristy area around Times Square. Great ambiance and good food - went for an early dinner with my kids and they were welcomed. Prices are great and there were many items on the menu that suited the more finicky palates at my table (sliders & grilled cheese bites on the appetizer menu, truffle fries, etc.). My salmon and sauteed spinach was just right.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food, music. It
Very good food, music. It had a plastic cover om the rooftop so a bit of the view was lost, but it was a good place anyway.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for pre-theater
From the moment we walked into the lobby we felt welcome - and the cozy ride up the elevator to Haven set the mood for the evening. Festive atmosphere, well-prepared dishes, attentive service, energetic vibe, all made it a great pre-theater event. Hope to come back again.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Could not fault anything! Lovely view, attentive staff and the biggest and best steak I had in NY. Not overpriced - would definitely go back!!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Rooftop Loubge and Restaurant
Best Rooftop Lounge and Restaurant in Times Square. the view are great and the food is even better. the must try is the melted mozzarella wrapped with prosciutto. the staff is top notch. the waiter Frankie is the guy to ask for...And the Manager Alda DeVilla is just a not only a great manager but a super Host. This is a must try when in the NYC.

Winter rooftop dining anyone?
Rooftop dining apparently is in, and the Haven is with it and ready for the cold weather. It's a great place for cocktails, with a great view. Dining we elected to go with sharing appetizers, which were meals in itself. The tuna tartar and crab and avocado were delicious as well as the grilled asparagus. The salad with brussel sprouts and shrimp was good, but lacked other ingredients, besides the 2 filleted shrimp. Beef carpaccio is finding it's way back on menus and here it was presented with a delicious slice of aged cheese. Butternut squash soup was velvety,and hot. Creme brulee topped the night. Only surprise was the bill had a 20% gratuity included for a party of 4.

Great time, delicious dinner
Great time, delicious dinner and friendly service. We will return.

It was a pleasant dinner on the rooftop of the hotel. Everything was breathtaking
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Carlos, our server, was oustanding
lovely "outdoor" experience, fresh air, starry ambiance. Nice food, great service. A lovely retreat from the Times Square hustle and bustle. Cheers to all.
