If you love food, and cherish the excitement of all of your senses, then you MUST come here. The food is extraordinary, and though they describe it as "tapas" the portions are larger than you might expect.

Went for Miami Spice...however they didn't appear to have a pre set menu. Food served tapas style. We ordered many of the recommended staples. Sushi was quite good. Chicken dishes as well. Excellent cocktails from bar. Projection screen which wraps around lounge definitely eye catching and unique. Dessert somewhat lacking. Overall good spot for quick bite. Definitely would go again just for drinks and ambience

I had dinner here on a Sat. night while in SoBe and the service was great as well as the food, music was good too...If you like sushi and want something eclectic or to spice things up, this is it! They also have a lounge scene that starts around 11pm...

Restaurant had an incredible ambiance and the music was phenomenal. The food was delicious, and the drinks were not bad at all. The only problem was with the champagne bottle we ordered. It had a sour taste - almost as if it had gone bad. Other than that, this place was fantastic. GREAT for special occasions and group outings.

HaVen is on a great section of Lincoln, just west of the mall area, not as packed. Dining with our young son meant no inside bar scene for us, but outside tables are perfect. We arrived during Happy Hour - til 8pm. Food was spot on and prices were nicely discounted. Great drinks as well.

Not sure what this place was. Flew into Miami late on a Friday night and looking for a decent restaurant that is open late night. This place was a nightclub/lounge that served dinner late night (and we knew that going into it) the problem is that it just didn't do well in either category. The food tasted good but was incredibly heavy and greasy, actually there wasn't any thing on the menu that wasn't greasy and heavy. The vibe/scene of the place was also not great. We were there from 12am to 1am.

This place was so cute and hip. The food was really good. My friend had the crab cake burger and literally talked about it the whole trip. The general manager, Ben was his name I believe, was such a great host and he made sure all 8 of us was comfortable... even on his bday! He even made sure our entry to the hotspot club that night was taken care of! He literally went above & beyond for us.The DJ was dope. Goodness!! I will def be back next visit to MIA! Thank you so much for showing my bff a great time for her Bachelorette trip!

We had been meaning to try this place for the longest time, and finally made a reservation. After experiencing all that this place has to offer, we're kicking ourselves that we hadn't tried sooner! Now that we know that Haven is so close, it will most definitely be among our regular haunts. When we arrived, our jaws about dropped when we saw the big panoramic screen that wraps around the dining room. The wall changes along with the lighting, from fashion shows, to art exhibits, to jungle scenes. Really cool, but not too busy if that's possible.

Our very attractive server guided us through the cocktail and food selections with ease, and was spot on with her recommendations. Our favorites were the Asian ribs, Duck Duck Quail, Volcano sushi and the crispy spicy tuna roll. Holy moly, we definitely had a moment. We also had more food. Other great bites were the Korean beef burger and those TATER TOTS!

Desserts are crazy good and the people watching is even better. Overall this place is a local gem worth sharing with all of your friends.

I went for Miami Spice last week and it was really delicious! My FeVer cocktail was spicy and sweet which was a cool touch. The place can get packed and does have an energetic vibe so if you want a nice dinner come early (7or8) and if you want small plates and drinks and dancing the night away go later and make a night out of it.

The meal ideas were excellent, but the final products were rather bland. The fried chicken was undercooked and the meat was overcooked. The cheesy scalloped potatoes for one of the meals looked and tasted like they came from a Betty Crocker box. The Peruvian potatoes for the other meal were very tart with a strong vinegar flavor. The sushi was mediocre, nothing special, neither were the desserts. The sharing plates were dirty, the drinks were too bitter, and the bathroom was disgusting.

I went here for dinner on a Friday night. The service was prompt and accommodating however the food was another issue. The food was mediocre. There was an item called drop biscuit. It had a confusing taste. I confronted the manager about the dish and he was enough to take it out of the bill. The shrimp skewers were charred. Spider roll tasted like something was missing. The ambience was very nice with the huge screen TVs. I had one radish cocktail. It was good minus the huge ice cubes that watered it down very quickly. GO here if you have cash to waste unfortunately this is a miss.

My boyfriend and I scheduled a reservation in order to watch a Miami Heat game on their big screens, we even called ahead to make sure we would have a table and the reservation went through. When we arrived they first tried to seat us at the bar, we asked for a table and they promptly moved us. As we sit down they mention to us that because of the Memorial Day weekend the kitchen was closed and they were not serving food, only drinks, and if we wanted food we had to order from a nearby taco place that would take 40 minutes for delivery service. I really wish they would have mentioned this over the phone, we came expecting food and wasted money for parking. The only saving grace was the waitress was very friendly.

I came with my sister for a late sweet 16 dinner celebration and loved everything about HaVen! The drinks were amazing, especially the Cucumber Martini topped with Champagne, and the food was AMAZING! Duck and quail burger was delish and my sister very much enjoyed the Mahi Mahi. Plus the complimentary desert plua the birthday acknowledgement really made my sister's experience a great one!

This place seriously needs to figure out if it wants to be a lounge or a restaurant because it's trying to be both in a very small space and it doesn't work. Our only option for seating was the chef's bar, which overlooked a food prep area, because all the indoor tables were inappropriate for eating. The food was quite good. We enjoyed some sushi and sandwiches. The duck sandwich was exceptional. Given some of the reviews this place has had I did have high expectations of it, but frankly they weren't completely lived up to. A good overall experience, but there are many places I'd chose before returning to Haven. The hosting staff is a bit "uppity" and I hate that in some South Beach restaurants. Overall though I would still recommend it.

I expected to have some of their well taughted Nitrogen drinks, but on this night the nitrogen was depleted. I expected to have a selection of menu items in leiu of the Valentines Day set menu, but nothing else was available (except tator tots). I expected moderate attention from our waitress but instead we were ignored for long periods of time and patrons that were seated after us had been attended to more often. I expected to tip accordingly, instead an automatic 18 percent was added (for a table for 2??). All in all, the place needs some work. Not only did I leave with an empty feeling, my pockets were empty as well. I will not be returning.

We were looking forward to this pre- booked dining experience but were totally stunned and very disappointed as when we arrived the Restuarant was in the middle of a fundraiser of which we unaware of.
There were hundreds of people inside with a night club feel to the place.
A reserved table was not in sight and we left.
The Restuarant should have notified us of the situation before we took the trouble to get there as we were left high and dry.

We were looking for a tapas restaurant and this restaurant was exactly what we wanted. Four of us sat outside and enjoyed a sampling many of the dishes. We had several that were just delicious. They also have a large drink menu and they are unusual but also very tasty. Inside was very unique and would have been fun to sit inside except they where having a private party that was about to end, and the weather was nice so we sat outside instead. Our waitress was terrific and was very helpful when recommending items.

It is a visually stunning place. The wall length video on the walls are a trip. The night we went it seemed like we were in an airplane The dj was dressed in a pilots shirt and the walls video showed windows with puffy clouds going by. Then mural size places of beautiful destinations. It was fun and really different. The illusion is wonderful, service top notch and chef Todd's creations are so delicious. The grilled cheese with tomato puree was heaven My husband enjoyed the meatballs. We had 10pm reservations and it was perfect. Gave us time to eat before the place basically turns into a nightclub. Fun place will be back

This tapas dining room and later night cocktail lounge is a fun place to enjoy some creative small plates, like a foodie take on a grilled cheese and tomato soup combo where the "tomato soup" is instead poured over a buttery brioche cheese spear, or a mini crab cake slider, or maybe a clever sweet treat like liquid nitrogen created ice cream (some foodie options like bacon ice cream -- a winner actually!). The staff is very friendly and professional too. A FUN place that is different -- in a good way -- than the typical hot spot.

I love to try different foods and different combination so HaVen was heaven in that sense. Everything we tried was delicious, including the drinks. The server was also very friendly and helpful. We were there until the music turned up and danced for a little while.

Overall, cool place. The only issue we had was we were hungry. We went through the first plate (all tapas portions) pretty fast and it was a good 20 minutes before we got the second.

I made a dinner reservation for two for 9:15pm. when i arrived they tried to seat me outside or at the chef's table. I requested in small table in the lounge area as i was planning on having dinner, drinks and staying late with my date to listen to music and enjoy the lounge vibe. They were un-cooperative and very unfriendly. After a few minutes of nonsense waiting outside, they agreed to seat me where i had requested. The place was empty inside! The waitress came over to greet us and immediately told us we had two hours to eat and then we would be required to leave and vacate the table!! I was stunned, shocked but not surprised, as this is quite customary poor south beach behavior. I WILL NEVER RETURN. SAD
