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.

Love shareable plates. Bigger than tapas portions. The wine-by-the-glass options are the best around. Their menu is unique and I’ve never had a bad meal. You get what you pay for and you pay a lot but the whole experience has always been a great one.

We have not been here in years, last time it was still “sideburns.” I’m so sorry we waited so long! Every bite was wonderful, the drinks were especially amazing! Brussel sprouts were the best I’ve had- don’t miss the charcuterie either. Friendly, fun, efficient service, creative food and drinks, great upscale, but approachable vibe! We will 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.

The food was Devine, our waiter was amazing, however took an 1hr to get our food because the cheese bar was backed up and they wouldn’t serve our main dishes till the cheese board was served. However our waiter, who was amazing, served us bread that was fresh and oil. All in all a great place just need to get the cheese bar more help!

Excellent! We came for our anniversary and we were very happy with our meal. Our waiter selected a great cheese and meat board for us, and we took his recommendations for our main plates as well. The brussels sprouts are fab! We shared the fried peach pie for dessert. It was wonderful! We will be back!

The restaurant has a modern look with high ceilings and a large bar area. Because the design is an open plan, large tables and open ceilings, the place is very noisy.
The service was excellent and we received good support to select cheeses to our liking. The tapas were fine but not spectacular.

Arrived with a reservation. Lots of empty tables, but were seated right next men's bathroom. Probably least desirable location in restaurant. Sommelier excellent. Rest of service poor. Decent range / selection of wines. Food only average. High noise level. The place seems to have an identity crisis. Not a wine bar and not a dining room. Disappointed.

Tried multiple of the more interesting dishes, one was more disappointing than the next. I mean REALLY dissapointing. Go for wine, cheese and charcuterie if you feel like spending $18 for a tiny pile of Iberico ham. Chicken liver and chutney were very good. Service was slow, courses didn't come out together. Don't bother requesting private room through their web site, tried twice, the never responded. Skip dinner.

First visit. Interesting menu choices. We opted for select cuts of meats and various cheeses. While the choices were good the prices were VERY high. I have had much better Iberian ham (black hoof, not the white hoof they serve here) and $18 for a few slices is high. We ordered one glass of wine, assorted small plates, no main course and no deserts and meal was over $100 (plus tip). While I think the place is cool it is noisy and looks more like bar scene that happens to serve food. I would not rush back here anytime soon. This was anniversary dinner and all they did was bring about 1-2 oz of sparkling wine in glass as commemorative. Pretty cheap if you ask me. I expected MUCH better.

What a wonderful find! I was searching on Google for Date Night in Tampa and came across this little gem. The food was absolutely amazing, the atmosphere was perfect for our date night, our server Tommy was informative and perfect with his table visits. We could not have been happier with our 3 week wedding anniversary. The menu had unique items that left us wanting coming back to try the rest. The Filet Mignon was the best I've ever had. You must try it yourself. Portions were perfect. Everything was perfect.
