Another phenomenal experience. Dined alone at the bar in front of NCAA basketball game. Natalie (I think) was attentive without being overbearing knowing that I was watching the game. Food was exquisite and will definitely return on my next trip to Tampa.

Yes it was okay. The main dish was cold.... I ordered skirt steak medium well and it came out medium and almost warm... kind of cold. I was starving so I almost eat all of it... except for the parts that were really red. They took it off the bill. But it kind of ruined my meal/experience... because it was my first time.

We ate outside, so the noise level was lower than inside. We didn't have a huge meal at Haven, but we loved all of what we had. Cheese selection is so much fun, unusual and tasty. Interesting wine choices.
The duck liver ravioli was a standout. Service was attentive and knowledgable. A memorable stop on our visit to Tampa.

Sorry to hear about your gift card situation Don02. All our gift cards have a 19 digit number we would need to redeem. If you were given a 8 digit number from the realtor, this number is a personal pin number that only guest receive. I can best be reached at mkuewa@haventampa I look forward hearing from you to resolve this issue immediately with the gift card you received by contacting the realtor personally to receive the correct information and refund your $100.

Great restaurant with a nice wine list and we love the small plate element. My only complaint would be that there aren’t enough simple, healthy choices; I asked if the dumplings were steamed, got an affirmative answer, but even they came pan fried. Lots of cheese and fried veggies, which are delicious, but a couple more plain choices would be welcome!

We had a reservation at 8:15 - they didn’t seat us until 8:25. A waiter didn’t come over for another 15 minutes and funny thing is they weren’t even very busy. There were plenty of open tables when we got there. We went for one of their cheese and meat boards. Took 45 minutes just for that to come out and the portions were crazy small. Overall, it was just an okay experience. There’s much better places in Tampa to go to.

Cheese, charcuterie and wine were excellent. Probably the best selection of cheese I have had since my trip to Italy last year. We tried several menu items from the rest of the menu as well. The beef cheek fried rice was a real winner. The mac and cheese was also very tasty. We weren't as pleased with the charred pork belly and duck liver ravioli, and would probably stick to cheese and charcuterie next time. Overall a great restaurant with excellent service and a great ambiance.

We went for Valentine's and they had a prie fixe menu with 2 options for each of 5 courses at $75 per person. I've been to this restaurant before and the food is amazing as it was tonight. However, the tasting menu left us wanting more in terms of portion size even after 5 courses it just wasn't enough food. At $75 per guest I expect to be stuffed! Will return but definitely prefer the regular menu, their plates are generally large shareable size so this was a bit of a letdown on that note. Food was delicious though and service was great as usual!

I would not recommend Haven’s fixed price menu on Valentine’s Day. While I have had fixed price menus on many occasions before, the plates at Haven were woefully small and unfilling (one ravioli?) and the taste of the dishes was either overpowering or under seasoned. There was also no cohesion. It was all over the place. The value for the money was very low. I love Haven and Berns and would go any other time so I really hope they rethink their fixed price selection and value. Service and ambiance was great, as always!

Service was fantastic, one of the best waitresses I've ever had! The restaurant was beautiful and ambiance was perfect. Then there was the food...a complete let down. The kitchen didn't believe in seasoning, the food was bland/lacked flavor or it had one note. It has all the elements of a great place but when someone pays over $200 for dinner it's not unreasonable to ask for good food.

Service was a bit slow but that’s probably just the nature of the restaurant (wine, charcuterie, small plates, etc). Our server was very helpful and informative. We went for a friends birthday and a manager brought out a complimentary champagne toast which was lovely and unexpected. Everyone’s meal was DELICIOUS but would have liked to see a little bit of a larger portion for price point— all in all I would highly reccomend this place for a girls night or a special occasion!
