This beautiful venue is such a treat, as is the really special food. We started with cocktails and ate three courses of a really delicious dinner. We chose food that we were unlikely to eat at home in the UK: starters of carpaccio of elk and of fried green tomatoes, followed by buffalo steaks. All the food was really tasty,... More

It's a charming restaurant and I'll always remember the lovely setting, but perhaps not the meal. All of the waitstaff were attentive and professional. I got the fried green tomatoes as my appetizer - it was a nice light batter and quite tasty. My husband's grilled calamari &squid were nicely cooked (not over done, nice and tender) - the seasoning... More

Simply wonderful...could not fault the location, service or the food! We had not heard about this place, so were not sure what to expect...it's a long way into the canyon but it is well worth the drive! Nestled into the hillside, it is like a Hansel and Gretel fairytale setting...simply beautiful location and (particularly in the snow) looks amazing... When... More

Fifteen years ago, my husband and mother-in-law (who was born in Salt Lake) enjoyed a delicious dinner at Log Haven. My husband and I returned to Salt Lake for my mother-in-law's funeral and ended the day with another meal at this lovely restaurant. Although it's been around since 1920, the kitchen produces a contemporary menu. I especially liked the low-calorie... More

It pains me to write this review. I have eaten at Log Haven several times and always had good experience. This was our Valentines Day dinner and the service could not have been worse. If the excuse is going to be that they were busy, I would say either up your game or reduce the number of reservations you book.... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and were glad we did! The reception was superb and the restaurant was in a remarkable location. The food was unique, different, and impossible to stop ordering. I hope to return here as soon as possible!
