Beautifully offerings creatively conceived and beautifully presented. We loved the escargot with puff pastry, lamb shank with truffle mashed potatoes and rib eye special. I'll still give 5 stars despite my wish more fat had been trimmed from the rib eye. We'll be back!

Peter Havens provides an elegant but relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy chef/owner Zach Corbin's accomplished cuisine. The menu has French and Italian influences (always house-made pasta and gnocchi!) But always has Zach's own culinary flare. Locals and visitors alike enjoy the intimate setting and often enjoy dining at our bar, where we serve innovative and exciting specialty cocktails. Our wine list is eclectic and ever-changing, with an emphasis on natural wines from France, Italy, and the US. Reservations are recommended.
