Perfect service, great wine, awesome adaptation of french onion soup, cold crisp salads, wonderful lamb, super veal bolognese, all with a wonderful finish with an apple tart, a scoup of vanilla ice cream and freshly whipped cream. What could be better?

On my birthday, I treated myself to dinner at my favorite restaurant, Peter Havens. Oysters on the half shell, and pan-seared scallops over risotto special entree. Enjoyed with sparkling rose wine. A perfect combination for a nice celebration.

This was a very special occasion dining experience for which I have a mixed review. The most important feature, the food, was terrific. My companion had the lamb and I had the duck. Both were excellent, well prepared, tasty dishes. The food portions were generous...More

Delicious dinner in an intimate restaurant. The chef did wonders with a bluefish special and the trout.

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

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.
