We love visiting log haven. It’s our favorite restaurant for special occasion. The beautiful scenery and the ambiance set by the piano player and perfect.
The filet mignon is a favorite. The elk steak entree is also delicious.
I don’t think you can go wrong anything on the menu.
The staff was very good to accommodate my gluten allergy as well.

Food was expensive but it tasted like the price. The menu was limited, my party did not have an issue with it. Service was great. Ambiance was amazing and quiet. It was very intimate.

70th birthday occasion and it was perfect. My wife and her friends enjoyed everything - food, atmosphere, service. The Korean cauliflower appetizer was great and the waygu and buffalo received rave comments. The wine list remains strong. The perfect venue for an occasion.

Log Haven never disappoints, and it’s our favorite restaurant in SLC! The food, service and ambience are always excellent. It’s a restaurant you love the second you walk in the door.

What a wonderful meal we had here! We wanted to do a Valentine’s Day dinner but they were booked so we opted to go two days before. The ambience of this place is magical. We actually are planning to get married here this summer! The service was exceptional- everyone from the hostess to the waiter to the bartender were all so attentive. And the food was excellent. I had the scallops and my fiancé had the steak. Both really delicious. We will definitely be back- on our wedding day!

Excellent as always. Went with a work group for an interview. Great wine on special. Appetizers were spot on as usual. My elk was prepared perfectly with excellent flavor in the sauce. I have been coming here for years and never had a less than excellent experience. Love the seasonal menu changes.
Service is attentive but no overbearing. A little pricey but worth in when you consider the meal the the ambiance.

The service and food were excellent. Scallops were fantastic, but the Salmon and shoe string potatoes (french fries) didn't match well with the Salmon. My wife enjoyed the Salmon, but not the fries.
We will try your restaurant again and maybe consider bringing some out of town guests.

Unfortunately it did not live up to the recommendations and reviews. Overall the party of four we had an adequate meal at best. Had to send two appetizers back because they were in edible.

Ambience was fabulous weather was great, wine options were excellent, food just did not meet muster.

My wife and I are regulars here and have never been disappointed. The Alpine nachos are an incredible starter, very unique and full of flavor but still very light.
This last time we got the Bison steak, and the elk tenderloin wrapped in applewood bacon. Both were incredible! The Bison has more of a smokey flavor with hints of sweet with the grits and corn. The Elk was much more sweet because of the strawberry reduction sauce and candied walnuts. The Elk was some of the most tender meat I've ever had.
Definitely will keep coming back again and again.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The plates were very good. We got a small plate of pesto and cheese and it was divine. The view is wonderful and they have someone playing music in the background. I appreciated how they spread people out throughout the restaurant so it felt very intimate. We had a great waiter that was totally professional but down to earth as well.

Califlower app was the best food item of the whole meal, was pretty minimal for the price ($16)!

Salad was a salad

Main course was the special, swordfish ($42) and Scallops ($36)
Swordfish was smothered in a gravy so there you couldn’t enjoy the fish which was over cooked and dry.

Scallops were over cooked and the squash flavor was underwhelming!

Truffles that came with our check were excellent!

So, the cauliflower and the truffles were the highlight of a $166 meal! Really unfortunate!

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal with exception of the Ceasar salad. I have had a Ceasar all over the country and this one was a little anemic in flavor. The ambiance fit our intention. Will of course, return
