What a perfect way to celebrate 25 years together! We each had a different main course: my artfully displayed bronzino was sheer perfection, as was my husband’s Chilean sea bass in broth he declared “magnificent”! From the beet salad to the bread pudding with a special message honoring our day, Haven deserves every award and accolade the restaurant has received to date. The staff and management are most attentive to individual needs, and each go above and beyond to insure the happiness of its patrons. A gorgeous river view makes a beautiful setting, but it is the magic in the kitchen that brings us to return often to this Bergen County gem.

The staff was amazing and made our birthday celebration memorable. The meal delivery and timing could have been better but that is only a minor detail!

I went with my husband and my 18-year old daughter. We didn't want to wait 30 minutes for a table outside but inside had a nice table with wonderful view. We all ordered fish and all three were excellent. The appetizers and desserts as well. Service was exceptional. We enjoy every minute of it, will recommend and will come back.

Our experience was absolutely amazing!!
First the ambiance was just unbelievable. The view of NYC was so perfect and the restaurant was beautifully decorated to match. The food was so delicious! We had the Pretzel Battered Calamari for appetizer and the Pan Seared Scallops both were so beautifully plated and both melted in your mouth.
For dinner the Crispy Branzino Croustillant was delicious and cooked to perfection and the Grilled Colorado Short Rib melted in your mouth.
From the valet, hostess to the servers, everyone we met was friendly, happy and helpful. A really great night.
We most definitely will be returning!

Nice views and great service ..the food was delicious but a little pricy for the portion. But the atmosphere makes up for it 100% ..Drinks were off the charts though and sooo good. I will definitely go back and recommend this place to anyone

Celebrated a special occasion at Haven and it exceeded all of our expectations. The food was excellent, the views of NYC were stunning, and the front hostess was very polite and accommodating. Above all else, our server Nas was one of the best and helped make our evening truly special. Will definitely look to come back again.

Restaurant was smelly
Salmon was dry but manager took it off the check
Appetizers were good
Flan was too sweet
Maybe good to sit outside and have appetizers and drinks

This restaurant is in a great location. We sat outside and the view was beautiful. The food was great and our server Nas is wonderful. Well worth the money. We will be going back. After dinner we took a walk by the water which was right there.

Doesn’t look nearly as nice in person as it looks in photos, much smaller and sort of empty. The promise of a table by the window just means you can see the window from your table. Food was good in flavor but steaks all over cooked. Certainly nothing special, wouldn’t go back. Best thing is city view though it’s uptown so more of a park and residential view.

I finally decided to try there Ribeye steak . It was cooked and flavored superbly! If you like medium rare ask BLACK AND BLUE ! Steak was so tender so juicy zero waste excellent quality meat ! I literally cleaned my plate (14 oz)! I only eat my steaks in 3 restaurant between NY/NJ! I used to be a butcher so I know good steak ! Truffle fries amazing ! Buratta salad with tomatoes very delicious very fresh. Buratta was so creamy and fresh as well! Try all the drinks ! Superbly delicious and very creative cocktails !!!

Nothing memorable. And even though there’s a potentially amazing view, we didn’t have one. If you’re a table for 2, even though there were plenty of empty tables with a view, YOU WON’T GET ONE. I actually saw a patron tip the greeter to get a table with a view. I guess that’s how it goes.

The only thing worse than poor service is bad food. Even the best view if NYC couldn’t drown out the poor food and service of HAVEN. From the firecracker shrimp that had as much breading as a Coney Island corn dog to having raw steak, wrong preparation for sliders and a duck so over cooked it tasted like shoe string! Too much wrong here to ever consider going back.

First time dining. Certainly a terrific scenic spot but the food was too fussy for our group. Realizing people like to dine out & splurge, then this place will likely make you happy. I prefer nice atmosphere and dining choices that include a range of options containing simpler fare. The skirt steak with chimichurri (?) sauce was good and the least complicated. Salmon topped with crabmeat was overly encrusted and excessive. The duck, highly recommended was good but on a bed of saturated noodles, and too salty. The heirloom salad included less than desirable tomatoes, certainly not summery enough.

The staff was extremely pleasant and friendly but for a quiet early Sunday dinner we sat waiting way too long for dishes to arrive.

It took a while to be seated, even though we had a 8:30 pm reservation, we arrived at 8:00 pm , we had a cocktail at the bar, the hostess said in 20 minutes a table would be available, after going back to the hostess and asking how long more we had to wait, finally we were seated at 9:00 pm, service was slow, the food was good but pricey

The food here is fantastic. The views at night from their terrace are gorgeous! The menu is really well curated - there's something for everyone. But every time I go here, there's service inconsistency. Last night, it was 1 person telling me I could transfer my bar bill to my dinner table, then the bartender telling me something different. Our server, while very nice, basically ignored us for 30 min after taking our orders. I had to stop a bus boy and give him a drink order. When the server came over to take the drink order, she didn't apologize for or acknowledge that we had been kept waiting. This went on all night. She was overwhelmed with tables, I think. How do you get $100 per person for dinner and not make the service the next best thing to the food? Every time I go, it's something.

Having said that, and despite my 3 star rating, I do recommend this restaurant for dinner, a special occasion and great riverfront dining, because the food and views are outstanding. I hope one day soon the service becomes as notable.

All 3 of us had the Alaskan salmon dish, which was delicious. The fennel slaw was oversalted but the rest of the dish compensated. Decent wine selection - tempranillo and pinot noir (by the glass) were excellent.

P.S. Keep in mind, valet parking is $5 CASH (they don't accept cards).
