From the valet staff to the hostesses to our servers, we received outstanding service. Staff graciously recognized the anniversary we were celebrating. Our server was knowledgeable and able to make good suggestions. He was attentive without being obtrusive. Menu offered a great variety of selections at reasonable prices. Beautiful views of NYC. Look forward to another visit.

Table should of been better decorated for romantic birthday dinner. Also the table that was given to us was not private nor romantic. I reserved 2 weeks ahead of time.

I am so glad I chose this restaurant with the most spectacular view and splendid food. The Martini we ordered was made and served to perfection. The dinner was value for money both in portion and palette.
Awesome service, friendly staff. Absolutely loved this Gem.

This is a very nice restaurant. Nice view of the city. The only negative is that the food was too salty. I tried mine and my husband’s and everything had too much salt. Also the drinks could be little stronger. However, everything else was great and the staff very attentive.

We truly enjoyed our dining experience. The warm greeting from the hostess and the enjoyable sincerity of our server with knowledgeable suggestions of the menu enhanced our evening. Champagne, oysters, Filet mignon, asparagus and deliciously unique potatoes all exquisitely presented by our server. The food was excellent. The setting superb. Desserts so delicious. Professional staff. Excelente experiencia.

I have been to Haven Before & loved it both times. It just seems that the food portions are getting smaller. I would have liked a little more offered in the appetizers & entree. Thanks

This place is really amazing. The service is outstanding. The view you cannot beat. The food is also fantastic. I went here for a romantic dinner and it did not disappoint. I would highly recommend. That said it is a little pricey, but I think well worth the money. If you are looking for a very romantic place this is it. The only bad thing is that they did not spread out the servings. The appitizer came before our drinks and the dinner came very very shortly after that. I would have liked about 10-15 minutes between getting drinks and appys and then being served dinner. But other than that would highly recommend.

We went for our anniversary celebration! At every point (hostess, server) etc even our dessert was decorated with happy anniversary. It was a great place and everyone paid attention to detail , which is greatly appreciated. The food and drinks were amazing. Drinks made strong enough (spicy margarita). We had the lamb shank and braised short ribs - both were impeccable. Dessert we had a brownie with gelato - also excellent with ganache. Great spot, will definitely be going back!

The staff was very accommodating for our anniversary, let the 2 of us sit in 4 seater table so we could enjoy the riverview, just as long as we were done before things got busy. Waiter was also very kind and gave good recommendations for food and drink. The appetizers and sides were very delicious but the swordfish was so-so, seemed to have way too many addons that gave it a funny taste. Overall a great experience that ended with a complimentary glass of wine for our anniversary.

My friends and I went for my birthday and we had a great time! The food was abundant, excellent and delicious along with the desserts, cappuccinos and drinks. The service was attentive and patient with our requests. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was that we had to wait for a friend who was arriving late in order to be seated which set us back a half hour. I don’t know why the policy requires the entire party to be present in order to be seated but it is definitely something that would keep me from planning a group gathering again. I would visit again with my husband for a meal but definitely not with a group.

Upon arriving, we were seated promptly with a reservation. Our table had a view of Manhattan, inside. Our server, Christina, greeted us; gave us a menu gave us a few mins. and came back to take our drink order. She then explained some items on the menu. We asked some questions about appetizers and food and her advice and opinions were right on the money. We had lobster truffle mac and cheese, short rib bruschetta and lobster croquettes - all were a nice sized portion, beautiful presentation and all three delicious! Our dinners were crispy duck and lamb shank. The dinners were creative, well presented, each with unique sauces and sides. The dessert was a chocolate croissant bread pudding -- delicious as well. We found our meals, service and ambiance to be above average and will definitely go back to this restaurant. Our waitress was excellent and personable!

Shoot the chef. Or at least, fire him. All the food is over-fried, overcooked and mostly uneatable. Pity, because it is a beautiful place, an outstanding setting, and the restaurant could have attracted a lot of permanent patrons.

I would love to give 5 stars but I have to give 3. I made reservations a month in advance and clearly stated it was for a birthday and I wanted outdoor seating. I did not get outdoor seating although two days prior to my reservation I received a call from the hostess confirming I was going to sit outside. Then, when we arrived I was told outside seating is on a first come first serve basis. But if I would've been told this prior to arriving, I would've made reservations at another near by restaurant. The reason I wanted to come here was for the view. Secondly, when dessert was ordered, it did not say happy birthday nor had a candle. Highly upsetting when you are trying to surprise your loved ones and nothing comes out right. The only good thing about this night was our server Matt, he was so amazing!

Their moderate amount of menu choices produced excellent dishes.
Scallop appetizer was superb as was the short ribs entree.
The sirloin was good but not steak house quality.
Bread & sides were very good as well.
On arrival we were warmly greeted with congrats for our anniversary. The service was great if you like a little overbearing which we did, including a complimentary anniversary desert.
The only thing I did not like is the $5.00 valet charge in the suburbs with a community parking garage behind the restaurant, (but everyone has to make a living).
We'll be back and park in the garage.

My friends and I had an amazing time at Haven, the food was great, especially the seafood risotto. Our sever Matt was also great, attentive and funny. One downside to the evening was that shortly after arriving we wanted to change our table from indoor to outdoor seating and the hostess was not accommodating and gave us the excuse that we would have to come back inside shortly because of a 9pm noise ordinance - this sounded like she made that up. We ended up having a good time anyway.

we had outside table which was just beautiful . Steak entrees that do not include any sides always a bit disappointing - then having to pay $11 for each vegetable/ potato
Beet salad was only frisee greens - could have been better
