Can't wait to go backWe brought our mom to the Haven for Mother's Day. We were all extremely impressed! We started with the seafood platter which had a variety of smoked fish and the Scottish deviled eggs. I had scallops, my mom got the fish supper, my brother the burger. Everything was perfectly done and the flavors were fabulous. The fried fish batter had a nutmeg tinge to it - unexpected but yummy! My brother says its the best burger he's ever had. Atmosphere is funky yet homey and the service was great - you feel like you can relax. Our server was also helpful explaining the beer list and letting my mom sample something before making a choice. And, the owner gave her a Scottish candy bar for mothers day. All in all, we cant wait to visit the Haven again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always love The Haven.We always love The Haven. Our first time there for brunch, and the food was good.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a table of four, we orderedAs a table of four, we ordered 4 appetizers, 4 entrees and 4 desserts, plus drinks. Not a crumb remained on any plate. Everything was beyond our expectations ~ fresh and delicious. The cullent skink was made to order and outstanding. I had lamb vindaloo and whilst excellent to most American palates, I would have preferred it a whole lot hotter (as in spicier). Husband enjoyed the haggis which was individually prepared and cooked. I liked it but, once again, thought it might be tempered a little to American tastes ~ not as spicy and peppery as we have at home. That being said, it was delicious and we scoffed the lot. Sticky toffee pudding went down a treat and we all left very sated and vowing to return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found The Haven on OpenWe found The Haven on Open Table and were excited to try it based on other reviews. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was awesome...very energetic and lively. The staff were authentic Scottish and super helpful with beer recommendations. The food was really good across the board (there were 4 in our party and we all ordered different things so I had the opportunity to try several items on the menu). And to top it all off, there was an amazing bagpiper who played a couple of songs each hour. We had a blast and will definitely return!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMScottish to the max!The Haven is a great haven of Scots! From our waiter's accent, to the food and drink, and all the way to the boisterous atmosphere, this place is the real deal! We had a blast, and the food was awesome! We left with grins and full stomachs!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad It's In My NeighborhoodWe had a reservation, but our table wasn't ready. Nevertheless, the staff was good about keeping us informed and we were seated only about ten minutes late.
Service was attentive and efficient. Staff was concerned that everything was o.k. In fact, I didn't like the beer I ordered and the waitress was very gracious about my returning it and ordering another.
My only quibble is that my chicken was unexceptional--a generous portion, but bland. Not something I'd order again. I will, though, return. There are plenty of other dishes to try.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMitch from ConcordMy wife and I have been going there for a few years now. We feel welcome there! Everyone is warm and friendly. They treat you like they are happy to have you there. The food is great and fun. The vibe is great. The service is great. It takes us 40 minutes to drive there but it's worth it.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made a reservation andWe made a reservation and were seated almost immediately in a location that was really not to our liking. The staff immediately moved us back to a "waiting" table where we were able to chat and snack until a new (and perfect!) table was ready. They were understanding and happy to help us, the food was fantastic, everyone was lovely. We will definitely return!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMdedicated group of workers/owners.dedicated group of workers/owners. homemade food with a lot of love.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelishThe unusual pub-type meals are always wonderful here.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBoston's only Scottish restaurantWe like The Haven. We've been here twice. It's Scottish, which is unusual, and it is has the feel of a small European neighborhood restaurant. The workers are friendly and the service is very good.

Recommended!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMJP GemWe had a choice of JP restaurants last Friday night, and tried The Haven. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The server was attentive, and took our drink orders. There is a large selection on the drinks menu, and it was easy to find something that would complement the meal. We ordered the fish and chips, and were again served without too long of a wait. The large piece of fish was fried to perfection, and the chips were great with the homemade ketchup. (Of note, the chips held vinegar well, and reminded me of chips I had eaten in the UK.) The portions were the perfect size, and we had room for dessert. I wholeheartedly recommend the deep-fried Mars Bar, which, for those in the know, is manna from...well..The Haven.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHavenGreat cozy/homey food.
