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.

Went here for brunch, hash was tasty with corned beef that was more like cubes if jerky giving it an interesting texture. The spring scramble that was recommended by wait staff was just ok and too small if a portion for the $14 price tag. We ended up ordering a third dish ( beet burata salad) so we wouldn't go... More

Spectacular small plates, including "brussels chips" and homemade focaccia delivered warm to the table. Perfect if you're at Jack London Square, which has become a restaurant paradise with clean boardwalks and several small marinas. The restaurant mixes overhead lighting with white tea candles, giving the dock-themes wood and stone textures a romantic warmth. We enjoyed the beef and artichoke/grits entrees,... More

We enjoyed our food but the service was poor, unfriendly, forgot a starter, and we seemed to be the last to get served ...

Loved the location and the decor, good atmosphere. The serving staff were great. The food was pretty excellent, the waiter was not afraid to recommend, and also knew loads about the wines and the beers. The only reason for not giving five stars is I was travelling with a vegan, which pretty much threw them completely.

Came here once before with a friend for yummy dinner with out of this world cocktails. Was here last night for a 22 person corporate dinner and was impressed by the service and family style format. All my coworkers enjoyed the variety of dishes: two salads, great chicken, pork and mushroom grits and the candy bar and apple pie desserts!... More

This is a restaurant conceived by amateurs and run by amateurs. At best the experience is mediocre with poorly conceived plates. A starter of grilled calamari on squid ink risotto featured decent fresh calamari set atop pitiful "risotto" which consisted of mushy rice floating in a black broth infused with too much wine. Do they know what risotto is supposed... More

My first foray into one of two of Daniel Patterson restaurants here in Oakland. The space is well set up with a bank of window looking over the Jack London Square Marina. Choosing from the Prix Fixe menu, almost the full a al carte menu:My meal consisted of CELERY ROOT & APPLE SOUP BUTTERED CROUTONS, SAGE LIGHTLY SMOKED TROUT BEET,... More
