I asked the reception desk lady to give us nice veiw window seat but she gave us middle of the room eventhough the restaurant was very slow at that time. (We arrived 5:00 pm)
However, our server was super friendly and helpful. The food was great too.

We have hesitated visiting this restaurant due to the mix reviews, perhaps thinking that is another waterfront restaurant not needing to have very good food to survive. But we were pleasantly surprised this past Sunday when we visited for brunch. We enjoyed our skirt steak and eggs, & oysters, fried calamari while good, could have been a little softer, the fried chicken sandwich was flavorful, but unfortunately was a little though, would have benefited from a buttermilk marinade. Danny our server was very good and welcoming, we will visit a second time and try other things on the menu.

I always love this place, this was the first time I ate inside though and it is really an awesome atmosphere inside too!
Being vegetarian, I love the options available, the edamame dumpling dinner ($22) is awesome, so is the pretzel asparagus (trust me it sounds weird but it is great)
I attached pics of the view and the lobster and shrimp apps the table got enjoy!

We chose Haven because we were meeting a friend from out of town and thought he would appreciate the view of Manhattan from Edgewater. Plus, afterwards, he was able to hop on the ferry to go to Manhattan. Have turned out to be a delightful place. The service was first-rate, food was good and ample, cocktails/drinks were well made. The prix fix brunch includes 2 drinks, but you can also order a la carte. Both companions had versions of Eggs Benedict and I had Cafe Veggie Burger. All plates were wiped clean! The eggs came with nicely done potatoes mixed with onions and the burger came with fries. I look forward to coming back in the warmer weather when one can sit outdoors to enjoy the full view.

Our waiter was amazing, I believe his name was Matt. The only flaw was the noise level of the music. It seemed unnecessarily loud for a restaurant but it wasn’t horrible. Otherwise the food was awesome I had the sea bass and my friend had the swordfish, both were great. We also shared the lobster balls which I can’t recommend enough though you might want to get 2 orders if you’re sharing as it comes in sets of 3.

It was my girlfriend’s and I anniversary. The fact that the lady at the front desk greeted us saying Happy Anniversary, same with our waitor, whom also brought us 2 glasses of champagne was very really nice. The atmosphere, the colors, the design, the view, the food, everything was exactly how I wanted it to be for our anni dinner. I definitely recommend if you’re looking for a high quality restaurant! Great experience overall.

P.s. - she loved it!

We were a group of 4 for lunch. All of us agreed that the quality of the food was good but the selections and accompaniments were not to our liking. We actually had difficulty finding something to eat that we knew we would enjoy. We find today that a lot of restaurants go out of their way to present unusual offerings with varied dressings. While it's nice to find a few of these offerings on a menu, it's also nice to find some old standbys so as to please a majority of people. The view is outstanding but we won't be going back.

I have been wanting to try this spot out forever. Me and the family took my sister's fiance to Haven for his b-day. Really nice restaurant. Made a reservation earlier in the day. No wait when we got there. Wish it would have been warmer to sit outside but will have to wait on that. Our waitress was really nice. Food and drinks were really good. Everyone had something different. And everyone liked there apps and main courses. It's a tad pricey but I think it was worth it. I am a stickler on everything and I really can't say anything bad about this spot. Would be nice for date nights, birthdays, bachelorette party get togethers...whatever.....just a really cool spot. I am glad I suggested this to my family....will be going back soon...

Really good find! My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a good steak place, and we were not disappointed. Delicious food for a great value. I ordered the NY strip steak, which was amazing, and my boyfriend ordered the churrasco, which was also delicious, but he thought the portion size was a bit small. We also ordered a large side of the grilled veggies, which was very good. The waterfront view was beautiful.

Great view of NYC (day or night)... a bit on the pricey side, but that's expected in Edgewater-- especially along the Hudson River. The Chilean Sea Bass is to DIE for! The Filet Mignon was perfection as well. Will definitely be going back again and again with different friends and family. Hostess and waitress/waiters were delightful as well.

The food is terrific at Haven. We always enjoy our meals. The pretzel crusted calamari is a consistent favorite. Both of our fish dishes were perfectly prepared - chilean sea bass & Montauk swordfish. Service on this evening, however, was not what we are accustomed to. Our waiter lacked the personal connection we usually enjoy. He seemed quite rushed and made several errors, which he readily corrected (lemon instead of requested lime, meals served with no silverware on the table, a forgotten drink brought at the end of the meal). 4 stars for the food, only 2 for service on this evening.

I came here to celebrate my birthday this past weekend (10/5). The waiter forgot our appetizer but we decided not to say anything because it wasn’t a big deal and we weren’t totally upset. After our meal came the waiter came back and apologized profusely that he forgot the appetizer, ended up bringing one out immediately and comping it. The manger came over with two glasses of champagne and also apologized. We weren’t upset that it was missing but very happy when it did come because it was delicious (lobster croquette). Our waiter and the manger could not have handled the situation with more grace and poise. Very professional. The food was delicious! Highly recommend.
