We were two couples visiting the area, and we had read about the restaurant. What a terrific meal! Each of us loved what we had. Mine was a squash soup and a fillet, perfectly prepared. The wine list is extensive and varied, and they have a knowledgeable sommelier. The service was attentive, unobtrusive, fast and friendly, and the server knew... More

My wife & I dined @ Peter Havens this past weekend. We tried it on the same weekend last year. I wanted to like it as much as our last visit.

I have been a couple of times now and it is spectacular. The service I received from both Brian and Maggie were impeccable. The food and wine were superb. The ambiance tastefully beautiful. If you haven't tried Peter Havens yet you definitely won't be disappointed.

We never miss a trip to Peter Havens on our visits to Brattleboro. Limited menu all with excellent tastes and all fresh. I chose the filet and my wife the fish, both done perfect and served hot, you could cut the meat with a fork... you'll always see us going back, maybe we'll try the new patio.

Peter Havens is my favorite restaurant in Brattleboro. The food is consistently terrific. It is not the cheapest place in town, but that is a good thing!

This was a most delightful discovery. Our great evening started with the bartender who knew what she was doing and continued with our terrific server Emily who was knowledgable, most pleasant, and full of information. The menu was creative but not too much so and the food was excellent.

Thank dl53

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.
