Pot pie and shepherd's pie were awesome, and a great beer list here with a wide variety of Scottish beers and ginger beers.

They were overbooked so I had to sit on stool at the bar. Not very comfortable. Otherwise OK.

What else can be said about Scottish perfection that doesn't require a passport and a flight?

Not only was the food fantastic—but the Scottish ambiance was top-notch. They even had live music complete with a fiddler, guitarist, and bag-pipe player! Does it get any better!?

Food was great but it would be nice to have some kind of alternative to dairy for the coffee. Had to ditch the coffee I'd ordered and get some green tea. Ambiance is very nice. Love the old wood!

We were a little uncertain about some of the unfamiliar Scottish menu offerings, so we played it safe and went with familiar dishes. I can't say enough about the Shepherd's Pie made with lamb. It was so flavorful! We also tried the chicken pot pie, the mussels appetizer, and the butternut squash soup. All were delicious. We tried 2 of the desserts and they were both outstanding as well. Wonderful comfort food on a cold winter's night.

Love that we have a scottish restaurant in Boston! The haven is a cozy haven from the hectic pace of Boston - we thoroughly enjoyed brunch & look forward to returning for dinner!

My wife and I had a great, authentic Scottish meal then we stayed for the dram tasting which was really fun and educational. The wait staff is friendly and the owner is really knowledgeable about scotch. We loved it so much we went back in the morning for an amazing full Scottish breakfast!

As every time previously, The Haven lived up to highest expectations. The food was excellent and the service was well beyond reproach. All personnel, including Jason, the owner who came to our table for a brief chat, are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. This great spot is perfect for all types of people and everyone is cordially treated. The Haven is definitely a welcome gem in Jamaica Plain!!!

Greeted immediately on arrival. Offered a choice of seating. Ordered a cheese plate that is on the dessert menu as a starter. So good! The blue cheese was amazing! Got a salad and the fish supper. Ended up bringing the salad home. Not as crowded as usual which was nice.
