Perhaps, I should have done more research.

Hoped for a place that my wife and I could enjoy an anniversary dinner...not so much. Not a restaurant in the traditional sense; more a (loud) bar, that happens to serve (great) food.

One of the best Brussels sprout dishes we’ve ever had! Although billed as small plates, they could better be called “medium “. Three or four would be plenty for a couple to share.

We visited Haven and had an excellent waiter David who was extremely knowledgeable about the different meats and cheeses along with the extensive bourbon and whiskey list. Come here for a charcuterie experience but they also have larger plates that are great for sharing. My favorite was the Brussels sprout salad - crispy Brussels and goat cheese plus an amazingly light dressing!! We also had some lovely craft cocktails which made us happy!

Everything was fantastic. The food was amazing. The service was good. My only quibble would be that the TV was on and turned to Food Network. We had a 5 year old with us and the TV was loud and distracting. We never have the TV on at meal time at home so this proved to be a significant distraction for our daughter. And it was LOUD. Unless at the bar or a special sporting event, I don’t think the TV should be on in a restaurant - especially featuring a generic show.

Haven continues to be, for our family, without rival or competition in the restaurant scene in the Tampa Bay Area. Recently, our 9yr old son asked my wife and I about our server list. For years we've kept a list of our favorite servers at our favorite restaurants in Tampa & St. Pete, so when we re-visit, we know who to ask for again. He asked us last week if we ever put Tommy (from Haven) on the list. To which my wife and I both responded, Tommy IS THE LIST! He knows what we want when we're undecided, he's sweet to our kids, and takes excellent care of us every time we come in, and no matter who we bring with us. The whole gang is just awesome, Greg, Courtney, Chad...do yourself a favor and book a table at Haven sooner rather than later! And ask for Tommy!

Haven has become our 100% Go-To restaurant in the Bay Area. To say we love it is actually an understatement! Tommy is the BEST server ever! And every time we go (several times per month), Chuck, Courtney, Danny, Erin, Greg, Hunter, Josh, and others whose names I’m regrettably forgetting all welcome us and our kids like we’re coming to a family reunion. Hands down Haven is the best restaurant in Tampa!

Took my daughter and her friends for her birthday to Haven because Bern’s steakhouse was booked and I thought we get similar quality at this place. We sat in the main room. It was so loud we couldn’t hear our own voices which was annoying. The service was so slow that after ordering a couple of entrés we decided to skip to dessert. Manager and hostess were very friendly but our waitress needs a lot of training or they were understaffed, not sure what the story was. On the other hand the couple of dishes we ordered were good just Do something about the Noise!

I've been to Haven many times. It's a great place for drinks or dinner normally. Servers can be quick to judge you on how much money you have and that will effect your service. Normally I look like I want to spend money and get excellent service. This last time I didn't have time to change and just wore a T-shirt and shorts and flip flops. I was however with two gorgeous woman who were decked out and looking great. I truly think the server made a judgment call about our and her potential tip and thought since we are young that we werent worth any of her time. We only got to spend $97 dollars because the server never came back to our table after we ordered drinks and an appetizer and some cheese that I let her up sale my dates on. It was a shame because I was trying to look good and would have spent hundreds to make these girls happy and I didn't get a chance. oh well plenty of nice restaurants in SOHO to go to from now on.

Haven has such a welcoming vibe - charming environment, excellent service, and great food + drink. I've visited for happy hour and enjoyed sitting at the bar, as well as for a sit-down dinner, and both experiences were top notch. I love the uniqueness of the food and drink menu. My group tried some hard to find beers, some lesser-known wine varietals, and regions and I even had an (inexpensive) glass of Madeira for dessert! We ordered a variety of cheese, meat, veggie, and pasta small dishes (tapas) and everything was delicious. If I lived in this neighborhood, I'd eat here at least once a week. Highly recommend!

Creative, small plates menu; although our selections were filling (think "doggy bag"). We also shared a cheese and charcuterie board (a signature item) as our appetizer - lots from which to choose and our server, Cristina, guided us on our selections according to our tastes. Nice wine list. Very attractive restaurant. Service was impeccable and delightful (thank you, Cristina). Haven is part of the Bern's restaurant family and everything about it is exemplary of Bern's standards. We'll be back.

There are quite a few unique dishes, artfully prepared, and infused with international inspiration. Cheese tasting with flexible choices and a good range of selections, so you are not stuck with a pre-chosen cheese platter. Server David was very attentive and knowledgeable. The space felt homy, relaxed and spacious. All these come with a reasonable price.

You can’t have the happy hour if you are sitting in a table. You have to get there before they open if you want to get a sit in the bar. The hostess was really rude with us. I had a great time once that’s why I wanted to come back but never again.
