Haven has been my favorite restaurant since it opened. The food, the view, and the service were excellent. I took two associates for lunch today and was very dissappointed. Maybe I should not have ordered short ribs for lunch. It was two pieces of dry...stringy meat covered in A1 type sauce. One piece was almost all fat. The other two entrees were OK. For sure last nights left over with sauce. Even the super good dessert and coffee did not compensate. I was wondering if ownership and/or chef has changed. It is a shame to see; a restaurant go down so drasticallyMore

I had to delete my entire review because I wasn’t able to edit it! We dined here for our daughter’s birthday, looked like a great place, water views, nice atmosphere, supposedly great food. Well, let me start by saying our server was excellent, the appetizers...were great, but the entrees were so so, even one of the pricey sides ( lobster mac and cheese), was definitely sitting under a heat lamp lol! The thing that pissed me off the most- 2 Johnnie Walker Blacks, on the rocks-19.00 each, that I have no problem with, but to have the cojones to charge 2.00 each drink for ice! I assure you, we will not return as even New York restaurants don’t have the balls to do that.More

HAVEN is overall a great choice in the area for American/Seafood. I give this a Very Good rating solely based on the food, service, and its place on the waterfront; the atmosphere certainly needs work.

We chose this restuarant for the view and it surpassed our expectations. We were mainly coming for the view and hoped for decent food and service. So many times, a place with a view is only that. The view, of course, is lovely. Wonderful seating...outside, but even inside, the restaurant is bright and has beautiful view of the skyline and East River. But the service and food were what ended up standing out. The manager came over to check how our meal was and our waitress, Karina, was so attentive and sweet. All of the staff was friendly. And the food was wonderful. We started with the calamari--which was unlike any calamari I have ever and the colossal shrimp cocktail which were enormous and delicious. For our main entrees, we had the shirt steak with chimichurri sauce--so nicely prepared, tender and tasty; and the grilled shrimp and burrata linguini with mushrooms and heirloom tomatoes which was beautifully presented and delicious. We ended with the warm brownie with white chocolate mousse, vanilla gelato, toffee and peanuts; I said I'd only have a bite and then devoured it. It was large enough for 4 people to share. We would definitely return. This is a perfect place to go with out of town guests or for a special celebration. What a nice surprise!More

We were visiting our daughter in NJ. Wanting to invite a friend who lives in Ft. Lee, we found this marvelous place nearer her home. Being a DFW resident, it seemed far from Franklin Lakes, but it was all worth the drive. The views were...great and must be outstanding in the evening. Service was impeccable though we were the only customers for the first half hour. The food was great. We had calamari and beet for starters and seared salmon, grilled shrimp, etc. A bit pricey but definitely would be back.More

Perfect evening having dinner outside looking at the lights of Manhattan. I've eaten in many of the waterfront restaurants on the Jersey side, and this is currently my favorite. Service was excellent, drinks were inventive, food was universally enjoyed. My wife had a delicious Fillet...Mignon. I had a lovely Branzino, and my son enjoyed his pasta and shrimp. We also thought the short rib brochetta was outstanding. When they found out it was our anniversary, they brought complementary glasses of Prosecco. Class act.More

My husband and I were looking for someplace special to celebrate our combined birthdays and decided on Haven. The restaurant is very nice, elegant and has a really great view of the New York skyline. We had an option to sit on the deck waterside,...but it was a bit warm so we opted for a great table by the window. The service here is top notch and the prices aren’t unreasonable. My husband was pretty happy with his Tuna Tartare, salad and side vegetables and I had the Fire Roasted Hereford Short Ribs. Unfortunately, my meal was a bit over salted and way too rich for me to eat. This was disappointing as I only eat meat occasionally and as it was my birthday… we’ll. Anyway, the menu has a great selection so I don’t want to discourage you from going and forming your own opinion. Also, you may want to park in the customer parking lot to avoid paying $7 at the restaurant.More

Our favorite was the traditional. The Sunday brunch included a pre fixe...brunch menu. We tried the Bloody Mary with our brunch and it was meh. Overall we would definitely come back!More
