Highly recommend starting with the alpine nachos. The "GRILLED 44 FARMS BAVETTE" (which I had never heard of before) was quite possibly the best entree I can recall. It's like something you'd include in a letter home of things you'd experienced that year. Great service and atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Tried Log Haven with my parents during a visit to SLC and we were not disappointed. The menu offers something for everyone and it’s apparent that it is meticulously curated. Fantastic atmosphere and ambiance and the service was impeccable.

The food at Log Haven was perfectly prepared. The Alpine Nachos with truffle oil were a surprising favorite of all at the table. My steak was perfectly prepared, very tender and highly flavorful. Perfect for a special occasion.

Me and my date had a wonderful time, I highly recommend this beautiful and very romantic restaurant. However it is probably only for special occasions for most people because of the price, but the food is very excellent and I wouldn’t say it is not worth paying for. Very very excellent service and a great atmosphere.

I ordered the Scallops. They are suppose to be seared. The top was and the bottom was not. They were spongy. The juice in the bottom of the plate added no flavor. I'm not sure what the other item was. A rice block? It was charred and tasted like a burnt marshmallow.
The dinning experience is wonderful. I beautiful place. The service was good. I would probably order one of the meat plates in the future.

I met a business associate from Colorado at the restaurant. The setting was perfect, quiet, comfortable, casual but classy. Jason was our waiter. He made recommendations for the our appetizer, main course, and dessert. He was right on with the cauliflower, elk and bison along with a wine to complete the food. Excellent experience. Also, our predinner cocktails were perfectly prepared (Greyhound with sugar on rim and a Manhattan). My associate suggested we visit this restaurant on his next visit.

Log Haven is an intimate and serene restaurant that my wife and I love to frequently go to. The menu changes with the season and is tasty and creative. Ingredients are sourced from sustainable farms. I typically start with the mounthatten cocktail which I love, and apparently so does my wife. and one of the small plates to share. The mushroom-fontina arancini in pomodoro is cripy, gooey, deliciousness; it could have been my whole meal, but why stop there.

I always struggle between choosing two entrees, this time it was the grilled bavette and pan roasted ora king salmon. Seeing that I hadn't had salmon in some time I opted for it. It was cooked perfectly on top of a potato-horseradish veloute, along side fermented cabbage and apple, which added a nice bit of acidity and sweetness. It also came with potato straws that added some crunch and saltiness and also aided in mopping up the veloute. It is then topped with creme fraiche and a caviar powder that I couldn't really make out so it was very subtle.

If you haven't been to Log Haven, you should go, and if you have, you should go more often.

My work requires a lot of entertaining and I have the opportunity to dine at many Salt Lake restaurants. We are fortunate to have so many fine establishments to choose from in SLC. However, when I need to provide a true experience Log Haven in one of the best. From the amazing canyon setting, the food, and the exceptional service, it's always memorable.

We picked this restaurant to end our celebration of our 20th anniversary. From start to finish it was absolutely perfect. The drive out was beautiful, the valet very polite, the walk up the sidewalk to restaurant lovely. Once inside the hostess was very sweet and asked us to take a seat on wonderfully comfortable chairs while we watched/listened to an amazing pianist and cello player. Once our table was ready (we were early for our reservation but still only waited about 5 - 10min ) we sat a a lovely table for 2 and our waitress came within seconds. She was an absolute joy. The food, well fantastic doesn't even come close to the joy our palette experienced that evening. Thank you to everyone involved with this restaurant as I know it is not just one person who makes this restaurant absolutely amazing.

Log Haven is my favorite restaurant in the SLC area. I had the pork loin this time and was amazed at what a flavorable experience Chef Jones is able to make of it. Of course, the ambience is unsurpassed, even in winter. I highly recommend Log Haven for dinner or a special event.

We had our wedding reception at Log Haven years ago and came back on our anniversary to relive and celebrate that experience. Everything about the evening far surpassed our expectations, from the valet parking to the Korean cabbage appetizer and hot cheese rolls to the two delicious meals and desserst to the live music and overall ambience. My wife and I love this place and recommend it highly! She had the bavette and I had the pepper filet, both outstanding!

We’d heard about Log Haven but had never been. There was still snow on the ground when we went which made the surrounding pine trees, mountains and water fall even that much more beautiful.
The food was tremendous and did not disappoint. Everyone in our party ordered something different - scallops, shrimp, bison and elk. The appetizers and fresh cheese bread were delightful and dessert did not disappoint, especially the fruit flavored, handmade sorbets.
We will be going back again soon.

Log Haven is truly a very special place for my wife and me. Our most recent experience was as-expected...wonderful.

Our server was outstanding, meal-pacing was spot-on; wine recommendations beautifully complemented our entrees.

We have been regular customers of Log Haven for several years as it never seems to lose its luster as a top-tier establishment...it only gets better!

We were set in the Southeast corner of the restaurant where we thought that it would be quiet, about 10 minutes later a group of 4 were seated next to us and they wee VERY LOUD and it sort of ruined our quiet dinner. It was not the fault of the restaurant or the staff and we should have asked to be moved but my wife would not have any part of that. Overall it was a very good evening.
