We went to Log Haven for our anniversary. It was wonderful. First I called to see if I could change my reservation. I was told there were no earlier openings, but then a few minutes later was called back and given an earlier reservation. The restaurant setting is beautiful. We ate outside. There are trees , rocks, and a small waterfall. The food snd service were both excellent. I would recommend this place for your special dinner.

Log Haven is wonderful! We had an amazing meal, with 3 different appetizers and 4 entrees, each one as special and delicious as the others. The coconut banana frozen soufflé for dessert was special, but my husband has a soft spot for a good cherry cobbler, and this delivered. Our server was Elise, and I'm not sure I've ever had a more attentive, cheerful, enthusiastic server at any restaurant anywhere. She has been in this role with this chef for 16 years, and yet she remains almost blissful in her descriptions of the food. While the food and service are amazing, the setting is what sets Log Haven apart from any other restaurant. Nestled in the woods, with waterfalls on both sides, Log Haven should be called Log Heaven. We bring all of our out of town guests here, and it does not disappoint!

Ordered filet at market price but filet was 4-6 oz and “standard”maybe “select” quality. Market price was far too overpriced for the quality and size of filet. Wife had the shrimp and risotto and loved it!! Waiter was excellent and ambiance was first class.

Overall, the chef needs to step up his/her game for such an amazing restaurant. I would have been happier at Ruth’s Chris or Fleming’s and would have spent less on the bill.

Truly a special place to enjoy a spectacular dinner in the beautiful mountainous wilderness. Our server, Guy, orchestrated a phenomenal dining experience. He was intimately familiar with the food and drink menus and was able to curate a perfect meal to our tastes. In regards to the food:
- Korean cauliflower: expertly fried, retained its crunchy texture even after being tossed with a wonderful gojujang sauce. The water content in cauliflower can retain an intense heat long after frying, but this was not the case at Log Haven. Small details make all the difference
- Bison: wonderful reduction-like sauce intensified the flavor of the perfectly cooked bison. Bison sausage included in the sweet potato orzo brought the dish together quite well.
- Shrimp risotto: perfectly cooked, parmigiano reggiano flavor shines
- souffle: banana ice cream with toasted coconut flakes, raspberries, and a pineapple puree. Easily one of the best desserts I've had in recent memory.

The pianist was a nice touch. The space is refined. The valet were very friendly and prompt. Cannot recommend this place more.

The location of Log Haven makes it feel like you've been transported somewhere far away. The staff are always so friendly and professional, the food is yummy, and the patio is a nice break from the valley heat.

a communication breakdown between the host and the waiter had us waiting 30 minutes before someone acknowledged us at the table. After that was taken care of it was a wonderful experience. The food was unbelievable, tastes I'd never experienced. The location is a wonder place to relax. In fact, it was so nice, the 30 minute wait was not so bad.

Log Haven is our favorite place to eat on special occasions. The food and the service are excellent; the noise level is low enough to permit real conversation; and the ambience is calm and pleasant.

We had crab cakes, Caesar salad, filet, and chocolate creme brûlée. All were delicious, even better than we’d expected! We went in thinking the restaurant was more about the scenery than the food, that we are spoiled with great food from home in Cajun country, but we were wrong - the food was perfect and well seasoned. The service was pampering without being smothering. Friendly, cheerful, helpful, and his recommendations were spot on! And yes, the views were breathtaking! Can’t wait to return!
