Beautiful location, excellent cocktails and great food

I love sitting outside on a nice day. There is always great people-watching to be done at Jack London and you get a great view of the water. The dining room usually has a separate prix fix menu, but you can also dine at the bar or lounge area and order off their lounge menu. We started with a... read more

All restaurant reviews should have some description of the food, atmosphere and service. My personal emphasis is on food and atmosphere. Rarely do I have such a poor service experience that it severely impacts my rating. Haven is that exception. The four of us were greeted by the hostess who looked at us as though we had just run over... More

short version: VERY GOOD FOOD, VERY GOOD SERVICE. longer version: i was nervous about a restaurant that has one menu, family style, b/c i am a very picky eater. i avoid sugar and carbs and hit the protein and veggies hard. also, my boyfriend is gluten free so i thought this could be a disaster. but the meal was amazing!...

First, the bar....excellent cocktails and great wine suggestions. The meals were delicious, innovative, and beautifully presented. The service was also fabulous. We've been here four times now and we're coming back for more!

From Sunday thru Thursday, the dinner menu offers a 3 course dinner while Friday and Saturday are 4 courses. The only thing you need to tell the server is what type of beverage you want and if you want the meat or vegetable main entree. The appetizers and side dishes are served family style. The wine menu is on the... More

Being largely retired, I am not in a hurry. We went to Havens on a weeknight early and it wasn't crowded at all, in fact probably 75% of the tables in the dining room were empty, but we were told we would have to eat in the bar (part of the same large room). We waited 10 minutes +/- to... More

A local spoke to a chef today and he said they are closed for a vacation, reopening 1/23/15. Earlier this week someone from their sister restaurant Plum said they are "working on a new concept".

OMG- do not question where to go-THIS IS IT! The food is all local and seasonal ,making the menu change often and the tasting adventure different daily. The cocktails were all fashioned, infused and created on site- excellent. The breads and desserts were beautiful as well as delightful.

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
