Beautiful view, excellent food, great drinks. Was a little disappointed that on a Saturday night they didn’t have specials. It’s a little pricey too but, overall great place to go for a special occasion.

Nice view but that’s about it. I’m guessing the food would have been good if hadn’t been sitting in the kitchen waiting to be served. Came out lukewarm... Over two hours to be served one appetizer, two entrees, and one dessert. Comp’d us a brownie and coffee for two hours of pain. The waiter however was polite and nice.

We have been to this place many times. We usually sit in the bar area to dine, but have been in the main dining room with friends on 3 occasions. The food has always been very delicious, and the service stellar. My only issue has been with the steaks they serve. On one visit, I ordered the Prime filet. When it arrived it was totally covered with sauce and garnish, and the meat wasn't visible. When I scrapped off the "toppings" I had an end cut from the tail end. I called a manager over who immediately corrected the situation. That piece of meat should not have been served as a $39 steak. My visit on Friday night with out of town guests followed our usual experience of satisfaction with the service and food. Our guests loved the place. The issue again was with my steak. It was a strip loin, which was an end cut with the gristle running through the middle. I had ordered Medium Rare, but it came out medium+. I sent it back being disappointed with the cut and the temperature. Again it was speedily rectified. The appetizers, salads and the fish are always consistently good. The short rib dishes also flavorful. I guess this is just not a place to have steak, but I will keep coming back.

Had a nice lunch with my mother and it was so peaceful. The restaurant wasn’t too crowded. The view is breathtaking. The short rib bruschetta was incredible and their cocktails are delicious. We had a cocktail made with Rosé. Great service by our waiter as well!

This is our second time coming here and we have had a horrible experience both times. The first time, the wait staff was pretty rude and wouldn’t bring us things we asked for (bread, napkins, water). The waitress that we had was a very loud speaker, and any time we asked her anything she would loudly go on a rant. After a while we had to (nicely) interrupt her and say “thanks, we will get that” because otherwise she would ramble on for 10 minutes, and quite frankly we did not come there to speak to the waitress the whole time. When the check came, I saw that the waitress had overcharged us for the bottle of wine, and when we brought it to her attention she got very snappy and told me I was wrong and she knows better. I had to get the menu to show her that I was right and she begrudgingly lowered it.... the way she handled it was very unprofessional and she glared at us as we walked out. Bizarre.

The second time we went for my mom’s birthday with my family. There were three women sitting at the table next to us, who were STARING at us for 15 minutes straight. They ended up leaving, but then a waiter comes up to our table, interrupts my dad mid-sentence as he is telling a story, and says “excuse me sir, those women thought you were attractive and they love the cologne you are wearing. Can you write it down for them with your number?” A waiter that worked at the restaurant, interrupted our conversation, said this to my father, in front of my mom and our entire family, on my mom’s birthday. My jaw DROPPED to the floor. My dad was in shock, my mom’s mood was completely ruined. I asked to speak to the manager, whose only course of action was to tell me repeatedly that the waiter is a very sweet boy and he’s only 20 so he doesn’t know better. Excuse me????

When we got our check, we saw that they had comped our dessert ($12) off of a $350 meal. They also charged us for TWO bottles of wine when we only got one. Two times in a row!? Really?? Horrible experience, AVOID!

I have been to many restaurants in the edgewater/Weehawken area and Haven was the most sub-par establishment to date. I expected more. The ambience and location is great, probably why everything is costly. But for the high price I was expecting A1 service and better proportions on the appetizers. We ordered firecracker shrimp and I have ordered this from a lot of other places, however Haven serves the shrimp in a box that is nearly empty. You can go to Tops Diner in Newark and get double the amount of shrimp for the same price and it taste a lot better in my opinion. The service at Haven was mediocre at best, I had to ask for my water to be refilled multiple times. They give you ONE piece of bread in the beginning while usually each table gets a whole bread basket at other places, which I found very weird.
I probably won’t be coming back here. I had the French cut chicken as my main entree which was very good.

It was my daughter's birthday. Everything was fine until I finished my coffee. When I drank it all I found a hair in the bottom of my coffee cup. (I should have taken a picture.) I am so disgusted. I call the waiter and showed him the hair, but he was getting upset and telling me that there was no hair when he poured the coffee instead of saying sorry.
He made it sound like I pulled my hair and put it in the cup. Lol
It really ruined my mood and our whole dinner. They didn't charge me for the $12.00 dessert, but I still never heard a sincere apology from them. The management department should train their staff on how to apologize sincerely to their customers.

Slightly disappointed in our visit to Haven. We had been here once before about 8 months ago and remembered liking it. This time I was very disappointed in my food especially with the price point. We started with an appetizer (risotto croquettes) which were delicious. We asked the waitress for a shareable app recommendation and she said the croquettes were a good choice... there were only 3 which made it hard to share. I ordered the chicken entree and did not find it to be very tasty. My boyfriend and I shared the brownie and ice cream and I thought the brownie was dry, ice cream was great. Overall, I do not think Haven is worth the money. It has a nice view but so do so many other restaurants in Edgewater and nearby.

We always enjoy our date nights at Haven. The food is exceptional & we've tried everything on the menu. The service is always great, too. I'm writing this review to encourage anyone to enjoy the outdoor dining, rain or shine, day or night. They've got this fabulous awning with louvers that open to let the light in and close to block the sun if it's too bright or keep the rain out if that's the case, plus they have lights incorporated into the awning that the staff can set with a dimmer. There are heaters, too. It was misty/rainy and chilly the last time we went, but we sat outside and were totally comfortable throughout the whole meal.

A beautiful evening to experience the sun setting on the Manhattan skyline. Always an impressive view!

The food was outstanding. The device was very friendly.

We waited a few minutes longer than I anticipated we should have for the waiter to take a drink order. Not a huge amount of time, but long enough to notice.
We ordered food at the same time as our drinks. The waiter said he would bring over some bread to get us started. Just a few moments later our calamari appetiser arrived, before our bread, and before our water glasses has even been filled!

The food came out quite quickly after the appetisers. We didn’t really feel rushed, but it was not a relaxing pace. We were done eating entrees 30 minutes after we sat down.

The food was really good. No complaints there!

I heard about this place from a friend so I decided to look at some reviews. After reading great reviews, I booked this place for my girlfriend’s birthday. I must say this spot was on point. Food was delicious, and service was top notch. From appetizers to the entree to the desserts, the quality was amazing. Last but not least, the view is perfect as you can clearly see Manhattan right across the water. I will definitely come here again!

We had such a wonderful experience dining at Haven. My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary and right away we were given champagne on the house. Our steak dinner was absolutely delicious! We both agreed that perhaps it was even one of the best steaks we’ve ever eaten. Service was great also, our waiter was attentive and friendly. The view is also spectacular, especially if you can get an outdoor table. We sat inside so our view was blocked a bit, but even this did not hinder us enjoying the lovely ambiance of NYC in the background. Would recommend for any special occasion dinner and can’t wait to return!
