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.

We've started our vacation with this restaurant every year (we're from the Midwest). The smoked butternut maple soup was exceptional as was the rest of the dinner. We will continue to return!

We were concerned that the new chef might disappoint, but boy, were we wrong! We think it is still the best in Brattleboro. It still receives our very highest praise.

This restaurant came highly recommended by numerous friends, so we had to give it a try. It was very worth the effort. Their special was a medium rare tuna with locally grown vegetables, which was my first choice. My husband tried their duck. Both of us were thrilled with the results. Bryan was at the bar that evening and was... More

We found this one almost by accident and ended up having a great meal. Possibly some of the best duck pate ever! Meals were well presented; the chef even foraged his own Chick and Hen mushrooms! Our waitress was a delight, as was the rest of the wait staff. The filet had a great Demi glaze. All was delicious from... More

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
