A friend told me that this Brattleboro restaurant (which is always on our short list for celebratory dinners) had started doing a casual lunch service on the patio for the warm months, Apparently, they had a food truck thing going at some point, and built...More

If you want to be guaranteed a good meal, albeit upscale and pricey, this is the place in Brattleboro. TJ Buckley's is the only competitor, and the two have different aesthetics but you can count on the food either place. Havens is more mainstream, but...More

Loved the food, the ambiance, the service. Warm, friendly and welcoming staff, attentive service, and such wonderful food! Also, flexibility if changing an order slightly, (e.g., vegetable replacement) always done with a smile and "no problem." A gem of a place. We look forward to...More

My husband and I went to Peter Havens restaurant for our anniversary. We dined outside on the patio because it was a beautiful evening. Amanda was our waitress and very sweet and friendly. We both had the smoked brisket sandwich- yum!!

This is the #2 rated restaurant in Brattleboro but you're comparing apples and oranges. This is fine dining in an intimate atmosphere. Food and service were excellent. Our hostess, bartender, and server were all knowledgeable and friendly.

My husband and I decided to try Peter Havens for our 40th wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed! We were given a glass of champagne as soon as we were seated compliments of the restaurant. I ordered the duck liver pate for an appetizer and...More

Enjoyed dinner at Peter Haven's very much. Service was impeccable and our respective dinners of Duck Breast, Filet, and a Vegetarian plate put together by the chef were excellent. The desserts were also top shelf as we enjoyed a Creme Brulee, an Apple Tart, and...More

We have been passing through Brattleboro VT for 10 years and never knew this place was a restaurant, let alone one of this caliber. The restaurant we thought we were going to was closed, and we found Peter Haven's by chance. I've had caesar salad...More

Peter Havens has an excellent reputation - and lived up to it; the Maine mussels appetizer with a very light tomato "fondue" broth was our delicious appetizer; my duck breast with sauce bigarade (citrus-based sauce) was the perfect combination - not too sweet and the...More

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.
