Description: 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.

Still wonderful, the best restaurant in Brattleboro, and my personal favorite anywhere. About one year under new ownership, still terrific food and service.

Food exceeded our expectations. Who else can make a pork chop taste unbelievable and don't get me started on the homemade linguini with pesto sauce.

My friends and I recently dined at Peter Havens for a special bachelorette dinner. We had a wonderful time. First, we had to push our reservation back by 30 minutes because we had to run wedding errands all day. They were extremely understanding and still greeted us with a smile when we came into the restaurant. They noticed that we... More

After spending a week in the area vacationing with friends, we decided to have a special dinner for our last night. Our innkeeper recommended Peter Havens, and we were not disappointed. The menu was high end, and the specials only made our decisions more difficult. All four of us were very happy with our appetizers, entrees, and desserts. (The entrees... More

Peter Havens is a favorite haunt of my Uncle since Zach took over as the Chef, and when I was visiting last weekend we had an amazing meal. The restaurant is very unassuming from the outside, with what appears will be a very comfortable and well designed outdoor deck (I can't wait to visit again to enjoy this when it... More

BT Brian was outstanding...knowledgable, friendly, and knew what he was doing. It was a pleasure to watch him work and chat. My wife and I were greatly impressed. Food choices were limited to our tastes, so we did not eat there, but everything looked good that came out of the kitchen. Many regulars and repeat customers by the looks of... More

Thankfully Peter Havens was open on the 4th. We met friends there and had a delicious meal in a setting that encouraged conversation. The local veal was the best. My husband's steak was a little tough - medium rare. Service professional and friendly. Great wines by the glass. Will definitely return when we are in the area. Worth a detour.

The food was excellent and the service was great! I had the escargot and soft shell crab, both were wonderful. My husband had the duck pate and the duck breast and again everything was perfectly prepared. We would happily go back!!
