We did google for a river front dining that offered a short ride from Jersey City and had a nice river front view of the city. So Haven popped up and the rest was history.
Reservations at 7:30 and we were greeted by the valet which charged $5.00 to park you ride. Inside the ladies at the podium greeted us and we requested a river view inside seating and our wish was granted. An outdoor table would take about 20-30 minutes. Waiting on us was PAUL, who was kind, polite, and pleasant, and on his game. A bottle of 2014 Gary Farrell Russian River Chardonnay started the night... oh so smooth!!!
A couple of apps were ordered. We got the pretzel crusted fried calamari, and the shrimp Firecracker. Both apps were splendid. Nice flavor, no oily taste, and the pretzel crusted calamari was so good!!! Different flavor and taste so different from the typical flour drenched taste... gotta try it!!!
It comes with on the side, a chili based marinara sauce and a spicy mustard for your dipping pleasures.
For the main course, my girlfriend ordered the grilled shrimp spinach tonnarelli pasta, and I had the spicy grilled duck. Both dishes were flavorful, prepped just right, good taste on the palate and delish.
Overall, awesome dinner, excellent service by Paul, great bottle of wine and the view can't be beat. The decor of the dining room is clean, chic, dark with circular ceiling lighting and great ambiance.
We will be back!!!
