Absolutely fantastic. Went for our anniversary and loved everything. Friendly staff, beautiful location, delicious food. Everything was perfect. A bit noisy but not too distracting. The valet parking is free for guests, we wish that was a little more advertised because we did not know that and worried slightly about that. Everything was fantastic though.

One of our favorite restaurants to go to for a birthday or anniversary. Lovely setting in Millcreek Canyon and nice ambiance inside. Was very busy, so the noise level was a bit higher than what we have experienced in the past. Food and service were excellent. When we spend that much money, we expect both and we were not disappointed. I had pan seared halibut and my husband had peppered filet, both of which were cooked perfectly with wonderful sauce and accompaniments.

Great atmosphere. Great food. Great service. This was the first time we have gone to Log Haven. A gift card from our son and his family got us there. We would go again.

A beautiful restaurant in a beautiful location. I had the filet mignon and it was fantastic, I hardly needed teeth it was so tender. The staff was friendly and the view of the waterfall was perfect. A great place for a romantic date too.

Always great food in a great setting. The Alpine nachos is a must have as a starter. Elk is also an excellent main entree option.

One of the most romantic dinners I have had the opportunity to share with my wife. I would recommend to valet the car as the walk can be cold and treacherous to cars!

This is our favorite restaurant in Salt Lake City. The short canyon drive is magnificent in the Fall. It was competely full upon arrival so it is critical to make reservations in advance. They have many weekend weddings and it can get busy. Our waiter was kind and attentive (a younger guy with Icelandic heritage). Super service, beautiful piano music and the warmest setting. Can't wait to return and experience the fresh, seasonal menus. Such well prepared dishes with so much flavor. Thank you to everyone at the restaurant who makes this happen every week of the year.

The service at Log Haven was excellent. The food was so delicious. It was such a great place to celebrate our Anniversary. I loved the ambiance and the beauty of the mountains. We also were lucky enough to listen to live music while we were eating. The only downfall was it is pretty pricey and some of the smaller tables are kind of close together so it feels less intimate.

I took my parents here on their trip to visit me this last weekend and we had an incredible meal. I got the bison, my dad got the elk, and my mom got the scallops - all of our dishes were incredible. I'm looking forward to taking other people here in the future!

Our third time at Log Haven. Food has always been to die for, and the staff is friendly, eager to serve, but not overwhelming as in many other places. The setting is incredibly beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Will go back there every time I am in Salt Lake.

Ambiance, food, and service was spectacular! Second time there and wondering why we don’t go more often. It was chilly in the evening and we were sitting outside but the staff brought us blankets and placed heating lamps by our table without us even having to ask. Dessert was also intoxicating! Favorite date night place with my wife easily!

Absolutely spectacular! The food was every bit as great as the beautiful view. Servers were extremely attentive and while the pricing is definitely upscale the entire evening was well worth the investment.

My wife and I went to Log Haven to celebrate our anniversary because this is one of the most beautiful, and comfortable restaurant settings that we have ever been to, and we have traveled to many parts of the world. It has the comfort of a friends cabin in a mountain setting and the food is always excellent. We both had the Pepper Seared Filet which is served over potatoes with aged gouda, with grilled asparagus, and a shiitake mushroom-cabernet reduction. The presentation was amazing and the filet was full of flavor and even more tender than I could imagine. We finished with the brown butter pineapple upside-down cake and a fresh peach crumble cup for dessert. We highly recommend Log Haven to all of our friends and business associates and have never heard a disappointing story from them about this great restaurant.

Log Haven was fabulous as always - the creative food, the mountain setting, and the romantic ambiance. We had a corner table this time that let us look at the both the greenery outside and the logs inside.

We had visited Log Haven for weddings and other occasions. However, this was the first time for dinner and to celebrate my wife's 75th birthday. Everything was wonderful, beginning with our table in a quiet corner with a beautiful view of the waterfall. Johnathan, our server was outstanding, attentive to every need. He carefully explained our menu options and was very cordial. We enjoyed our experience and plan to return again.
