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... read 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!

We were most happy to return to this always wondeful restaurant. We try to go here at least 4 or 5 times a year. The wine list is very good, the food wonderful and the service outstanding. The atmosphere is beautiful and with spring/summer coming the gardens will be enchanting. BTW: the piano players are terrifc.

I still remember that day our eighth year in Utah we decided we would go to the place called Log Haven, which called to mind that beauteous sight in childhood, the Log Cabin maple syrup container shaped like an actual log house. Filled, yes, with pretend maple syrup, but making you think of the forest and of your dream home... More

Set in awesome surroundings, nature at its best, from the walkway bridge, to the mountain landscape, to the lighted waterfall, Log Haven serves up the ambiance. Inside the log cabin you will find another comfort, the smiles of the friendly knowledgeable staff, ready to... More
