This is hands-down our favorite local restaurant and has been for years. Delicious food prepared by talented owner-chef Zak is plated beautifully. The friendly staff, superb cocktails and great ambiance bring your dining experience to another level. In the summer and fall you can enjoy dining outside on the deck and watch the world go by. Parking is on the... More

This was our first time here but it will not be our last. The food is grand, fresh, well-prepared and well-presented. I started with the smoked salmon, a small but delicious portion and then had the Scallops, achingly fresh. The others in my party had the lamb and the salmon, both excellent. The tab for this plus one glass of... More

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

A very friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere for a fine dining Restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. We had smoked salmon for starters followed by pheasant roulade and scallop risotto. Even though the return was busy the waitress wavers attentive. Advise booking in dance as this is a smallish returns and it get busy.... 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

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.
