We've been here a couple of times. Once on the deck and then inside. Great service and fantastic food inside and out.

I called Peter Havens on a Monday and left a message to make a reservation for that Wednesday night. By early afternoon on Wednesday, I still hadn't heard back and left another message. About an hour later, I received a call from Erin, apologizing I hadn't heard back from anyone at the restaurant before that. She said there was a... More

Small but friendly spot in trendy small city/town on the southern Vermont border. Club like atmosphere with a small but devoted eat at the bar clientele as well as sit down unobtrusive service with white table cloth sensibility. French trained Chef/Owner does not shortcut this classic sauce and stock based menu that rely on modern interpretation of classic dishes. Fresh... More

Beautiful location in downtown Brattleboro VT. Fine drinks with great presentation. Ribeye steak was cooked to perfection. We also had the Pheasant Romade that was amazing. Our appetizer was an heirloom squash ravioli and was bursting with flavor. Service was very good. My only disappointment was the acoustics made it a bit loud. All in all a must experience.

We were in Brattleboro for a birthday celebration weekend, and dinner at Peter Havens was a perfect way to end a perfect weekend. The service was a bit slow to start but apologies were offered and accepted, and it progressed nicely from there. We enjoyed a delicious Ginger Smash cocktail with our appetizer of house made squash ravioli which we... More

Tonight my husband and I sat at the bar and had a delicious dinner. We each ordered an entree of the day paired with a great bottle of wine. Brian, the bartender, was knowledgeable and engaging. We had a great meal, enjoyed the atmosphere and saved 15 minutes on our trip home!

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.
