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!

We ordered the world wide oysters which was great. The other two app, Mac and cheese with truffle oil and fire cracker shrimp were avg or less. Main dish we ordered, skirt steak and NY steak strip and both were really chewy. I ordered one of the fish dishes and it ask ok. I recommend the place for the view and the ambiance.

I've never had a bad meal or a bad time at Haven. We've been going there since it first opened. We go for happy hour, dinner, brunch, birthdays. I LOVE the heirloom tomato salad. I can't think of anything I don't love. And the staff is wonderful. This visit was a get-together for New Year's Day dinner. We really enjoyed it. This time I had the shrimp with spinach pasta. Very good.
And there's a little nicety that no other restaurant has. In the bathroom, there are real individual terry towels, not paper out of machine or those blow driers. What a nice little touch.
And I like that they added a roof to the outside dining--of course not at this time of year!

Haven is always a great choice. I went there earlier this year for my birthday and took my best friend out for hers recently. The ambiance is wonderful (sit by the window for skyline views). For my birthday, I sat outside as it was June but the indoor seating was stunning as well. Our waiter was very attentive and the food... always delicious. Highly recommend for dinner.

We were greeted generously. Environment was lovely. Ambiance and lights were very pretty although it was challenging to read (see) the menu. Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable but hard to understand. Service was decent but not elegant. Items were not placed on the table with great care. Overall the food was good but some things were over cooked (shrimp in the pasta dish and the salmon - we were not asked how we wanted it cooked). The Swordfish plate was tasty and creative, as was the tuna tartare. Overall a decent dinning experience.

We really enjoyed out first time at Haven! We tried a little of everything - short rib bruschetta, filet mignon, duck, desert, and a few cocktails. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. The view was beautiful (can't wait to go back when the weather is warmer). The bar area looked really cool too! We'll definitely be back.

Haven continues to serve delicious, uniquely flavored food. The choices are creative. Service was superb and the view is unbeatable. I’ve dined st Haven 5 times since it opened almost always at 7 or 7:30 pm. Each visit I’ve had to ask our server to lower the music level blasting in the restaurant. Not only is the level too loud for a table conversation, it’s disco type or inappropriate fir the beautiful venue. Last night our server was so kind and attentive. Twice he took care of the music level. Haven is fine dining and a welcome delight in eastern Bergen County. Why does it have to be so loud?

Food is expensive . Food all came out warm, not hot, and was just okay, not worth the prices they are charging. It is waterfront with a great view of Manhattan. Waiter was unattentive , although the bus boy was excellent!! There was a 20% gratuity added, which explains the poor waiter service. We are not rushing back

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.
