Ha! The restaurant called early Friday afternoon to say our Sunday brunch could not be offered because the restaurant had been sold! They offered to rebook at another one of their restaurants but we declined preferring to pick another menu. 51fifteen turned out to be a real treat!

When we arrived the restaurant had been sold and was closed. Should have been noted on the website. Had to scramble to find another restaurant close by and hope we could still get in for lunch.

Love the food. Great bread to start. The fried chicken was excellent, the rice was delicious and the seasoned veggies were mouth watering. Tip it off with the chocolate icebox pie.

My husband and I really enjoyed everything that Haven had to offer on it brunch buffet. My husband couldn't stop eating the oysters. The eggs my way options were endless. The mini chicken and waffles were just the right size and delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. I will definitely come back for brunch.

The setting is nice, but 3 musicians were playing just inside the front door and that set the tone for the meal. Normally, the high noise level would signal this is an energetic place with prompt service and rapid turnover. Visually, however, it feels like a more casual and relaxed venue where lingering is encouraged. During our visit, those competing visions were in obvious conflict. The buffet food selection was unimpressive and very limited; our server seemed poorly trained or disinterested (probably both), and it took 30 minutes to receive a mediocre and over-salted omelet. Although I barely touched my blackberry martini, he never asked if there was a problem or offered an alternative. Overall, not a good experience.

I went for brunch with my husband, it was very nice but a bit pricy.
Unfortunately, there is only valet parking which I truly hate and afterwards my car had brake problems.
I'm not sure if this was a coinsidence, my feeling was they were rough with my car.
They were also paying some live blues music.
Would definitely go back but I'd try to find a parking place in the neighborhood and walk...

My wife and I were very impressed with the restaurant. The food was great the atmosphere and the service. While some were dressed up probably coming from church others were very casual and we didn't feel out of place.

It may have just been an off night but the food was average at best. We have dined at the haven twice before and to be honest it was excellent and we were looking foward to another meal. But this visit the lamb cheeks tasted oily and tasted like they were fried along with green tomatoes. The steak was 1/2 inch thick and was not tasty as it should have been for the price. The best thing we had was the Frito pie appetizer. That is a shame.

Outstanding meals begin with the highest quality ingredients. Haven's seasonal menu reflects its commitment to utilizing only the freshest, often locally available products to create not simply innovative dishes but a memorable dining experience. Through the inspired vision and exceptional talent of chef Randy Evans and Haven's sister establishment Cove Cold Bar's chef Philippe Gaston, both establishments shine, assuring their continued place among some of Houston's most notable dining establishments and showcasing what is possible when the very best ingredients and accomplished chefs come together.

Although the restaurant was not the cozy romantic spot I was looking for, I must say that the food was amazing! Curtis, our waiter, was very knowledgeable and provided us with impeccable service! I probably wouldn't use this restaurant for a date night again, but would go back with friends.

A very creative menu, food was amazingly fresh -- tomatoes tasted as though they had been picked minutes before arriving on our table. Seared grouper was great. Dessert menu had so many good choices it was hard to decide, and none disappointed. Great dining experience.

For my birthday, we tried Haven for the first time. Our reservation was promptly honored, my quibble being that we were seated at a table directly in front of the entrance to a banquet room, so people were constantly opening and closing the sliding doors in back. There were several tables that remained empty for the entire evening so I am not sure why we were seated at such an undesirable table. I mentioned this to our waiter on our way out. On a more positive note, our waiter, Dan, was great. He suggested a good bottle of wine and was attentive without being overbearing. Our dinners were outstanding, including a delicious grouper with a jalapeno poundcake and a perfect flatiron steak. We'll be back, hopefully to sit at at better table!

Haven is a wonderful restaurant which incorporates a number of locally sourced food items in its menu. In addition to my most recent dinner there, I have attended special dinners hosted by Haven, usually for charitable purposes, including a dinner for HMNS a few weeks ago which celebrated pollination, with honey and items incorporating honey taking center stage. As for, my most recent visit, we started with a crawfish beignet, then I had a peach and arugala salad, and finished with a vegetarian main course with a ratatouille stuffed tomato, all of which were excellently prepared and presented. My spouse, daughter and son-in-law were equally pleased with their seafood and beef main courses.

Loved the seafood options in the buffet! Even though we arrived close to the time the buffet ends, the food was all fresh and any items that would empty got filled up right away. The bacon jam is to die for - don't miss it! Our server was very nice and the bottomless mimosas are perfect - not too juicy and not too strong.

Unfortunately, this was our second trip to Haven, and the food still doesn't measure up. It is a great space, and the service is good, but the food leaves so much to be desired. There isn't a lot of taste, although the raw oysters were good, but they didn't have a lotto do with that. This was probably the last time we will go there.

I had the "Dry" aged pork chop. Might be the worst pork chop I have out. Both prep and the quality of the cut were poor. Our party of 4 was not impressed and we will not be back.

a very satisfying dinner. my guests enjoyed their meal as well.
however the waiter did not communicate our carnivore's preference for his steak to be rare and
did not check the steak before serving it (it was returned and a rare steak was properly returned
from kitchen).

Cold items from ceviche to cheeses to desserts are their forte, place is a little loud though being in a small space within the larger Haven.

I love Haven for drinks (on the patio or in the Cove bar). Lunch is always great - for business or for meeting girl friends. Dinner was lovely too. Really and truly every dish I've had here has been delicious. In a city where so many hot spots are over hyped, Haven is a consistent delight, yet forward thinking. The last dish I had there was seared tuna accompanied by the largest red juicy homegrown tomato I've had on a long time. It could make you slap your mamaw. The seafood is always fresh and the wine list is solid. Go enjoy!

Haven is a great place to eat. The food is excellent and the service the same. I like the ambiance of the place and the fact that seating is far enough apart to carry on a decent conversation without having to raise your voice. I'll be back again for sure.

I had reservations for a party of four. The service was slow, it took 45 minutes to receive our lunch order - and we all ordered salads. One of the salads tasted as if it had grit in it. When we inquired about the delay in receiving our food, our server told us there was a large table seated. That should have had no impact on my table as we had RESERVATIONS. For the price, I would expect better service and better quality of food. I will not return.

Food ok because it was fresh. However, it was bland and not memorable. The grits were overly doctored, soup and chicken under seasoned. The waffles were tasty along with the dessert trifle. This brunch was pricey and not worth it. The ambiance was good and the waiter was nice.
