Very great ambiance, the views were amazing, and the service was great! The food was good, not the best. The steak was so tender but had some weird sauce that I would prefer without. Other than that it was great and would recommend.

Received a gift card and had dinner at Log Haven over the weekend. The atmosphere was very cozy and relaxing, even on a busy Friday night. Our waitress was attentive and did not make us feel uncomfortable for using a gift card (I was nervous as the instructions on the card were to present to the server at the beginning of the meal). Our meals were exceptional. Valet was quick and all staff was friendly. Will definitely be back!

This was the best date night I have ever had! We were given the best seat in the house, the service was impeccable, the food was delicious, and my date was pretty amazing, too. After dinner we walked across the street to the waterfall where it was chilly, but what a marvelous ending to a perfect evening.

We were so disappointed with our meals...our food was way too “hot spicy” We told our server we didn’t care for and wanted “hot spicy” sauces on the side when we ordered our appetizers. When our server collected our dishes and saw we had not eaten our main course...we told him our opinion and he did nothing meaningful. He actually said...I don’t see that as hot spicy ... well our evening ended on that note...very disappointed Our server didn’t even seem to care that we didn’t eat our main courses ... anyone of our party of three. Thank goodness for the the ambiance of the restaurant .....we enjoyed that.

Food was great. Server was good. However, the hostess seating us seemed to be put off when I asked for another table then what she was seating us at. She appeared to roll her eyes and sigh which leaves the guest with a poor impression.

Ambiance and service are excellent. Prices are high for food that is good but of limited choices. If special food requirements are needed your choices are even more limited. Some of the entrees are good but others are over spiced. Did not live up to expectations.

The food was delicious and interesting. We ate bison and elk, and loved both, including the accompaniments for each. Lemon dressed salad was very tart, and quite a small portion. Pineapple cake dessert was delicious. Wine and coffee very good.

The atmosphere and history of this restaurant is so amazing. You feel like you drove into wonderland once you turn the corner and it comes into view. A waterfall across the street and it was lite up with twinkle lights. The food was great. I loved my Bison was perfect. I personally didn't love all the apps but my group did, so it is just about preference. The service is superb! Water glasses always full and drinks when we needed them.
The drive is into a National Forest, so be forewarned there is a 'toll' on the way out. They give you a validated ticket but we still almost flew right by it.

Log Haven has been an award winning venue for over 40 years. The Executive Chef, David Jones, and General Manager, Ian Campbell, are superb. The four mile drive up Millcreek Canyon is beautiful, any time of the year. You can listen to live piano music while you dine. The food is incredible. I really couldn't be more enthusiastic about this venue. It should be on everyone's bucket list.

second time there and it was still amazing, the location is the second best part due to the amazing scenery, with the best part being the food.
the only let down this time was that our waiter didn't inform us or give us the voucher for when we left since it is in a national forest you need to pay for driving up the canyon, and I forgot which sucks since I had to pay for that...
so make sure you remember to ask for your voucher

My girl friend and I were visiting SLC for a wedding last week! We wanted to have a date night to ourselves before the wedding festivities started. I read numerous reviews to find the the best restaurants in restaurants in Salt Lake. I ended up choosing Log Haven for our evening date night and WOW!!

From the ambiance, to food, to service this was an incredible experience. This rustic and upscale restaurant did not disappoint. This is a must dining experience that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Salt Lake!

This is the definition of you pay for what you get! Thank you Log Haven for making our dining experience one of the highlights of our trip!

I first experienced Log Haven on a business dinner. I loved it so much, I wanted my husband to experience it, too, the next time we were in the area. I love the ambience and setting. The service was great and the food was delicious and creative. Located in a beautiful canyon across the road from a gorgeous waterfall, it's a fantastic place for any occasion...a little on the pricey side, though.
