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.

Another wonderful meal at Peter Havens! Our waiter was very knowledgable and help select a great wine pairing. The dirty martini was delicious and the chocolate mousse to die for. Will return again and again.

Peter Havens is a top notch destination in Brattleboro with out a doubt. they have great seasonal specials, and you can tell that time and attention is paid to every dish. Plus a bonus that is not mentioned on here is they are now open for lunch with a scaled back menu on the deck. It is a much needed... More

Lunch is served outside on a partially shaded deck - there was enough of a breeze to keep it from being unpleasantly hot on a warm sunny day. Very good salads and the vermont burger was outstanding.

Excellent soft shell crabs and carrot ginger Apple soup. The creme brûlée was ordinary and not very tasty. The Austrian rose wine was dry and spicy Very friendly and efficient service Parking right out front

We moved to Brattleboro last summer and last week was the first time we wanted to go out to celebrate our anniversary. Peter Havens has a wonderful reputation and so we made a reservation. It did not disappoint. The food was well prepared. It was wonderful. One of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Expensive, but... More

Between the food, the wine and the impeccable service, this is a wonderful spot. The special wine-tasting dinners are wonderful. Last night's was extraordinary. Smoked duck breast; emu; and salmon and tuna tartare.

Three of us decided to try this restaurant in Brattleboro. It represented a 45 minute drive, but it was worth it. We arrived a very few minutes early on a Saturday night and were seated immediately. We counted seats for up to 42 plus about 10 seats at the bar. Most were occupied. White table cloths and napkins were inviting.... More
