Amazing food! Confusing wine list design
Brunch is fantastic here! Nice setting, experimental yet solid dishes from Korean chicken thighs to oxtail rice to steak tartare. Not the cheapest but great brunch joint
Haven is a great space with excellent selections and service. As the Bern’s brand’s more experimental restaurant they have amazing wine selections with changing and more experimental cuisine. That also means it can be more hit or miss than the staid, tried and true of Berns. We love it, but it isn’t for everyone, every time.
I was a little disappointed by the cheese and meat spread. The cheese were solid, but it was served with ordinary grapes, nuts and raisins that could be bought at any Walmart. No spreads or mustards or anything unique other than the cheeses and meats you order. The foie gras i order was literally the size of a quarter.
Matt was phenomenal and made our night per usual. Always offering great insight to new menu items. We enjoy making a few decisions and trusting him to do the rest. Greg like clock work comes thru with a more than a few laughs and delish and different recommendations for wine.

Amazing food/service as always.
If you have not stopped in for the Sunday brunch, then you are missing out on some of the most amazing and creative food around!
Best charcuterie board! Our server was super knowledgeable and helpful in making choices.
The best meal I have had. Service was top notch and I didn't want to stop eating.
Delicious. Cheese off the chain. Wine list is Fab. Cocktail didn't rock my boat, but all else amazing. Decor is cool, but seated near the door and bathroom when other stuff available. It was fine, but not a special table.
Best happy hour deal in Tampa! We had a great time, might become our next usual spot! Great drinks, great food and you cannot beat the happy hour prices! Happy hour is just outside, but it is under a patio and has a super cute atmosphere.
The food sound great on the menu but it was a real disappointment when the plates show up. The Benedict Tartar was a real joke, flavor and the presentation terrible. The waiter’s knowledge of the menu was very poor. Also I made my reservation online as it was my birthday, but no one on the restaurant knew of my reservation or that it was my birthday. I will never go back or recommend it to any of my friends.

Good food but really small portions.
While the food is tasty, the portions are miniscule! The pork pate is only fair. When I order foie gras, I expect 3 slices. There was only 1! The spelt was excellent. The portion of the rib cap was so small, smaller than a golf ball, that the waiter came back & apologized for it & brought us another one! The fried brussel sprout salad was heavenly. We will not be going back.
Always delicious! We really enjoyed the happy hour selections.
Amazing selection of wine, sommelier services and a wonderful charcuterie board. Very comprehensive cheese list and great entrees. Would highly recommend and will be back for Happy Hour
Aged beef, drinks, and desert were great. We chose to eat outdoors for the quiet and enjoyed the breeze. Waiter was attentive and made good suggestions, however had to ask a couple times for husband's last drink. Loco Moco sauce was excellent but beef was unexpectedly hamburger style. Still tasty. Would go again and recommend.
Awesome meat & cheese board!!
food was superb. 6 different dishes and each one tasted amazing.great service too and reasonably priced beverages
Definitely the place to go if you enjoy wine and cheese. Then also stay for a couple plates for dinner. Was a fun restaurant with interesting dishes
Always fantastic food and service!
We had a great dinner. There were several new items on the menu, which were fabulous.
Daniel took fantastic care of us. He is terrific, you should request him!!
The sommelier helped us select a fabulous bottle of wine!! It was just perfect.
Brunch and selection was poor
Excellent Food and Service!

Based on reviews we went to Haven. The shortribs were dry and greasy, lacking salt and acidic balance. Cheese was over ripe.

Easily one of the best brunches in the area. I'll definitely be back soon. Corned Beef Pierogies and the Bern's Benedict are a must have. Quality of food for the price is what really stands out to me.

Trendy restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Amazing cheese and meat plate. With Bern's macadamian nut ice cream for dessert.
Thank you for your review!!
Somehow each time is better than the last. And we brought friends this visit and it became their new favorite restaurant as well

The room and bar are fantastic, one of the best bars in the area. I would go there and sit at the bar next time, we were at a table. I hear happy hour is the best. Great Charcuterie choices, the cheese is a little pricy for the portion you're given. We tried many of the shareable plate for dinner....some were over worked as far as ingredients, the stuffed chicken wings with fish sauce had a strong floral taste but the idea of ingredients was good, the sweetbreads could have use a little more mushrooms and were overcooked, the octopus was overcooked, the Brussel sprouts were amazing as was the rabbit mousse. I will be going back, sitting at the bar and ordering charcuterie, the best bet. Very nice wine list.
Thank you for your review JackT, your feedback means a lot to us and will be shared with our chefs. Thank you for choosing Haven as your destination of choice and look forward seeing you again at our bar! Sincerely, General Manager
Very nice Sunday Brunch menu and atmosphere. The oysters are the way to go.

Had been years since we'd been to Haven and first time for brunch and it was great. Food was excellent, service great as well. Will be going back to try all the things I didn't get to try because we were too full!
Thank you for your review marciagassman!! Happy to hear we were able to provide you with the experience you deserve from our food, beverage and exceptional service. We look forward seeing you again in the near future! Sincerely, Maka'ala Kuewa General Manager
The whiskey selection is incredible. The service was spot on. And the food was delicious. You have to get some of the cheeses, they are Devine. I would highly recommend this for hanging out to have a cocktail or a date.
Thank you for your review!! Happy to hear you received exceptional service and enjoyed your experience with us. Sincerely, Maka'ala Kuewa Haven General Manager
excellent food, often changing menu, fantastic wine selection.
I wish it was a little quieter but it was a busy Friday night, so overall was a very good experience. we will certainly return and recommend it to our friends.
Thank you for your review AndreasK!! It does get busy on Friday which makes the noise level higher than normal and apologize it affect some of your experience. Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday due seem like the night that are not as loud due to business in the restaurant. Thank you for letting your friends know about Haven and look forward seeing you all again in the near future. Sincerely, Maka'ala Kuewa Haven General Manager
Good food. Very loud restaurant.
Thank you for your review Tampa1971!! Apologies for the noise level at Haven. We do bump into higher noise level on the weekends (friday and saturday) and are looking into this situation. We look forward seeing you again. Sincerely, Maka'ala Kuewa General Manager
Great wine list
Food is super pricey
As an example ... 2 scallop dinner $25
Next night I ate at a lovely upscale restaurant in Indian rocks beach
5 scallops with grilled vegetables ... $25
Thank you for your feedback PJG8R, Haven noise level does increase more on the weekends due to us being busy on the weekends on Friday and Saturday. Happy to hear you were able to enjoy our wine offerings and exceptional service as. I would like to find out more information from you about the pricing you received since none of our small plate offerings are $25 and the scallop dish you received was $16. I can best be reached at mkuewa@haventampa I look forward hearing from you.
The service is always excellent and the staff is very friendly and personable. The food is excellent and the wine list is extensive! I’ve never had a bad experience and continue to go back on a regular basis.
Great spot for happy hour. Extensive selection of wine and bourbon with reasonable prices. Oysters delicious!
Thank you for your review NathanS!! Happy to hear you enjoyed our oysters, happy hour and extensive wine and whiskey list. We look forward seeing you again in the near future. Sincerely, Maka'ala Kuewa Haven General Manager
Loved food, and server was extra attentivie. But I was put off by being seated immedately next to bar, but not able to participate in Happy Hour specials. There is no separate dining room, or if there was we were seated in the bar area despite making a reservation for a special birthday dinner.
