Great food for a Gastropub and amazing beer selection. Just a bit too noisy for a family/friends dinner where we wanted to hear and chat with each other.

I hate to say it, but the food is mediocre at best. For the exorbitant prices, I would expect a lot more creativity and flavor. I'd return for beer, but that's it. They should really up their culinary game!!!

Terrific for lunch or just a beer, but not so good for dinner because of the pricing. Small happy hour menu. Party of 5 adults had 3 beers, 1 martini and 1 press of coffee plus 5 entrees for $120 plus tip.

Do not like the new approach at all with new menu. This used to be my favorite. GO-TO place for the last three years. Not anymore. Not sure I'll return. Menu items all too heavy. Too much pork No green Veggies. GM doesn't want to hear it. Bye

I've been going here years. I went in for the Lamb burger only to find out it isn't on the menu any longer. Ordered the half chicken. $26! for 1/2 chicken that is about the same size of a small game hen was incredibly disappointing, especially with no sides that came with it. Ordered regular fries for $6 that were cold and still left hungry. The best thing there was the Sam Smith Organic Strawberry Ale for $13.

We met family for my daughter’s birthday breakfast. I’d read reviews and was very excited about it. What a let down! Just about 4 things on the menu. For the adults, mostly sounded good. Not kid friendly at all. Three of us ordered steak and eggs. All three steaks grossly over cooked. My husband over easy eggs, those were also over cooked. They brought out my father’s toast burnt. We were one of two tables and the service was friendly but extremely slow. She never asked us once how things were or id have told her the food was terrible. It was a shame because I think the flavor profiles were all the there. The best thing about the place was the coffee. Otherwise it was a giant disappointment. We will not be back.

I really love Mac and cheese, so when I saw it on the menu , I was pleased. Unfortunately, I was not a fan of the excessive amount of bread crumbs on the top...it certainly took away from the mac n cheese, which was OK, but frankly, not outstanding.

2nd time in a row where either our entree or dessert took over 30 minutes to arrive after we ordered. No more Sous Vide eggs for the Poutine and menu continues to appear it is shrinking.

Menu and food quality was very good. Service and overall venue was moderate to poor. Food prep took too much time and service was unprofessional and lack of communication made the experience worse. Then we waited a long time to close out tab. This restaurant has an opportunity to be a great venue but needs to do better in some areas. I would give it a try and maybe your experience will be better then mine. -BB

Overall pretty good. The bar service was little slow and the restaurant was not even half full on a Wednesday evening. We enjoyed the kale ceasar salad and the burger was delicious and very big!The half roasted chicken was excellent. The atmosphere was very nice to go after work and the beer selections were very good. We will be back.

My wife and I went with another couple for lunch. Haven Gastropub is no longer the great place for foodies. My burger was overcooked, deviled eggs or pretzels did not taste fresh (they used to be great). There were flies that kept bothering our group while eating (we ate indoors). Ok that they change the menu around, but they did not even keep the classic dishes. A couple in our group ordered specials and then were told it they forget to mark it is only for dinner menu.

Haven used to be my goto for lunch for many years whenever I visited Orange. No more. There pricing was in line when they took pride from start to finish. I miss the old Haven of early days. I just feel it is now a mediocre place with great choices of beers. My friends and I will now be on the hunt for a new goto.

A great place in Orange for a very clever menu. I have to say that if I were asked by open table to vote best burger in Orange County California, I would vote the "45 day aged burger " - one of the best burgers I have had in the last several years
