Easily accessible by ferry and auto, the restaurant offers good food prepared with quality ingredients at Jack London Square. For the price, portions were small and ambience was lacking. Our meal was $50 per person (excluding alcohol). A16, Wood Tavern and Bellanico are much better values for the $ in the East Bay. The wine list offers a small and... More

I had an early dinner, coming from Europe I ask the very professional and nice staff for a place at the counter of the bar. Just in front of the kitchen, my seat was perfect. I could see a team of passionate chefs working each plate untill perfection. We asked for several treats: the oysters, the pickled sardines on toast,... More

I tried Haven on a Monday night. The restaurant was empty which was a surprise. I was solo so I chose a seat at the kitchen bar which has an open view of the whole kitchen. Great view. The head chef was training a new cook and it was very interesting to watch their technique and precision I had some... More

We had dinner here- craft cocktails, local wine (Dashe Cellars), oysters from Puget Sound, bucatini with brisket ragu, and roasted strawberry (!) ice cream. Every dish was really good, and the staff was on the spot without being intrusive. The area around Jack London Square has a solid lineup of restaurants, and Haven fits right in.

There were three of us. My wife and I and our niece. We're seniors and she is 40. My wife and niece thought it was great...eh, well almost. They liked the small portions and our niece had the bone marrow or something like that. I had the lamb. It was about 3" in diameter and 3/4 fat. They don't have... More

Friends of ours wanted to share Haven with us last Friday night. Our reservation was early (6:30pm) and we were immediately seated in a booth that was comfortable and quiet enough for easy conversation. Starting with the uniquely crafted cocktails through starters, entries, and then desserts our dinner was as good as expected. The cocktails and the various food plates... More

Ate at Haven last Saturday night and it was fantastic! We sat at the chef's counter that let's you watch cooking and expediting while enjoying your food. The servers were friendly and helpful and the food was beautiful. I specifically enjoyed the carrot soup - I wanted to lick the bowl but refrained. I'll be heading back here soon.

Upon our recent move to the Jack London Square area, my husband and I have been "tasting" .restaurants in the area. The menu of the Haven, looked inviting; the décor is "urban chic". We were expecting something delicious; we were wrong. Our first disappointment came from the bar. We were having cocktails while waiting for our table, and the bartender... More

Food was delicious. Service woefully inadequate- confused, slow, poor timing of course delivery. Not worth going back. Not customer friendly.
