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.

The service and ambiance are always the best, hands down, never miss a beat. I've been eating here a few times a year for 20 years. You never have to wonder if this is going to be the place that finally lets you down.

Had diner here on the first night of a 3 night stay in Brattleboro. It was well reviewed which is why we chose it. The reviews were right on. I had the Swordfish, and my girlfriend had the Scallops. Both were delicious and prepared well. Nether of us left feeling hungry. The ambiance was romantic and the place was pretty full. It is a bit pricey in my opinion, but I would recommend it to anyone.

I have never had a bad meal or service at Peter Havens. It's a unique dining experience. The restaurant is small and intimate, with not many tables. The kitchen is open so you can see your meal being prepared. The staff have all been there for many years and are knowledgable and experienced. The menu changes all the time so its good to call ahead and see what they're serving that night. If you have someone finicky in your party, it may not be the best place to go as the menu items are limited and may include things like rabbit, which not everyone likes.

We've been coming here for years for special occasions and great dining. It has always been consistently excellent. Alas the new chef/owner did not measure up. The service was still very good but the entrees were only fair, loaded with butter and not much flavor, a bit over done and barely warm on a cold night. Too bad for Brattleboro...and us.

This was our second time at Peter Havens. We chose this establishment to celebrate the New Year. It is truly an incredible experience from the specialized drinks, to the sumptuous food, in addition to the laid back, but professional staff. Albeit, a bit pricy but definitely worth the experience for a special occasion.
