Grant Park
About the restaurant
Grant Park's Best Kept Secret! A true neighborhood bistro located in Historical Grant Park home to Zoo Atlanta. Historic L.P. Grant Park is located in the southeast quadrant of the city approximately one mile from the gold dome of the state capitol building and six blocks south of I-20. The park is bordered by Boulevard SE on the east, Atlanta Avenue on the south, Cherokee Avenue on the west, Sydney Street on the north and Park Avenue and Berne Street on the northeast. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, Grant Park is the result of a gift of 100 acres to the City of Atlanta to be used in perpetuity as a public park. Lemuel Pratt Grant, donated the land and immediately began to subdivide and sell lots around the new park. The surrounding residential area grew up around the park and boasts more than 2,200 late 19th-century and early 20th-century homes and commercial structures.

Menu offerings were good for brunch but poor quality and very poorly executed. Everything else, the service, ambiance and team were great but the food wasn’t good l.

About the restaurant
Since 1997, we've been striving to please our guests, whether they’re looking for old favorites, seasonal creations, small plates or an introduction to new wine. We’ve adapted our style to reflect current food trends as well as the way our guests want to eat. So while there’s a selection for those who want to splurge on entrees such as the signature Ahi Tuna, New Zealand Elk or NY Strip, there are plenty of other options including gluten-free and vegetarian selections along with weekly wine features. Cheers!

First time visit. All the food - wedge salad and flatiron steak were delicious. Our server Vanessa was very gracious and thoughtful. Music was loud early in the visit. Noticed it less as crowd flowed in. Will definitely return.

HAVEN is an upscale eatery set in a loft with exposed brick walls, warm pecky cypress woods and soft amber lighting.

This neighborhood gem was a pleasant surprise. The staff provided stellar service. The food was well seasoned and quite tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed "The Gobbler," which is basically Thanksgiving Dinner on a sandwich. There was a nice variety of wine as well. A very friendly establishment.
