Arrived at 20:30,was rushed to order as the kitchen stopped taking orders at 21hr.
My partner order the oysters and the Chilean sea bass which she loved.i choose the tempura bites and the short rib,my food on the other hand wasn't good,the tempura bites lacked in any flavour apart from the oil they fried them in.
The short rib was perfectly cooked,shame the sauce it was smothered in was very sickly(to the point I I couldn't eat it) the mashed potato was dry and seemed old.
The table we were allocated was perfect with an amazing views across the Hudson.
The whole dining experience took maybe from being seated to waiting outside for our car at a push an 1hr 15.
This was to be a very special evening for us,it wasn't.
Would we go again,definitely not.

The restaurant was beautiful and the views amazing. I had grilled octopus and truffle mac & cheese which was excellent. My only complaint was the service was a little slow and it was very noisy.

Everything was great. The only think I did not like as to the proximity of the other tables The other parties conversations was loud and distracting. To be on a date it was not pleasant.

Overall everything else was great.

Appetizers were amazing. I ordered the duck as my entree the skin was soft and soggy , I guess I am use to the french way of cooking duck nice and crispy. My Fiance ordered the steak he said it was good, but it had to much fat on it. The cocktails was the best park of the experience.

Salmon was under cooked and took much to long for a new piece to come out. Steaks were incredible salty. Waiter and manager were very nice and accommodating though.

EXCELLENT. Haven doesn’t disappoint
I have been coming here since it opened. The chef Ibrahim
Is creative but stays within the American tastebud. I feel so lucky to live so close. My partner commented that there is food to take home, but never dessert. Leave room for dessert

We had warm chocolate brownie with chocolate nibs and vanilla gelato. We also had bread pudding with bourbon. Worth the calories

The high noise level was from a private party in the dining room. It also created a steady stream of high-schoolers parading to and from the bathroom. Otherwise, the night was lovely.

We love Haven! It's one of our go-to date spots. Last night was especially wonderful. Everyone we encountered, from the valet to the hostess, waitress, & servers/busboys was genuinely welcoming and friendly. They make you feel like you're their #1 priority, which can be so rare in a busy, popular restaurant! The food is exceptional. We shared the pretzel-crusted calamari, had swordfish and sea bass for our entrees, and then shared the dessert for 2 - all perfectly prepared and delicious. And the view last night - WOW! Spectacular!

We had glasses of la Crema Pinot noir, lobster risotto balls, bursts and heirloom tomato salad. All as excellent as the amazing view of the Hudson and west side of Manhattan from the GWB to the 30’s.

Street parking is limited but there is a free garage 2 minutes walk.
There is no view from the bar but virtually all tables have a spectacular view. Since that’s part of what your paying for, book a table!

The kitchen closes at 9pm during the week. A shame as restaurant was pretty full and I would have ordered an entree if not dessert.

I heard the food used to be so so. Apparently it’s upgraded! Will be back to try a full meal.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday for lunch. I ordered the churassco and he ordered the burger. My churassco was cooked medium well like I asked, but when it came out it wasn’t hot. That would be my only complaint. It was very juicy/thin (just how I like it) and cut for me already. However, my boyfriends burger was hot, thick and juicy. My home fries were amazing and the salad was good too. The waiter was very attentive and the food came out quick. Also what makes it better is the view. It never gets old. Highly recommend this place!

My wife and I have been to Haven a few times and it's one of our favorites for sure. The food is 5 stars, the service is 5 stars, the view is 5 stars. And during restaurant week it's also quite a value considering the food. If you enjoy raw bar, the oysters at Haven are consistently the best of the best.

Food is too expensive for what it offers
No variety .

I ordered Branzino
Was heavily sauced and not tasty at all
You need to look into healthier choices

Mixed review on this one...spectacular view of NYC, our server was quite good. Food has an oriental flair and the chef loads every dish with multiple flavors.....maybe too many. I had the duck (recommended by the server) two tough duck legs over an oriental stir fry of sorts. Duck was described as "crispy skin" and it was anything but. Legs were precooked, warmed, chewy and not crispy, not to mention I expected a leg and a breast....other enjoyed their meals. ALSO QUITE EXPENSIVE $$ - I heard the brunch is very good and I will give it one more try and go back for that. As many places on the Waterfront I get the impression they believe that the great view will compensate for mediocre food. Still looking for the place that can put great food with the view...that I will gladly pay for!
