Went to Haven with my husband and two friends. Loved the meal. My only negative was the size of the entree. It was absolutely delicious but exceedingly small. I don't mind small portions but this was very small. About four or five bites. The wine list could be a little bigger and had too many Pinot noirs but loved the... More

In the main part of the restaurant, you have to order the tasting menu. Do it with pleasure. Extremely good tastes. Generous portions. Dishes you don't often get. A special treat.

The dinner service is a based on a prix-fixe menu. The food is creative, delicious albeit sometimes adventorous (ice cream and mustard for dessert!). I would recommend it if you are in the area. Word of caution: portions are a bit tiny; don't go there overtly hungry.

This is my 3rd time visiting this restaurant, and to say I was always satisfied would be an understatement.. Located in Jack London Square, this place is sure to please. If you choose not to make a reservation, one of their delicious cocktails will make the wait worth your while. Also, take a look at the truly innovative menu. Seasonal... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dining experience for our anniversary. The staff was personable and very accommodating (gluten-free friendly), the restaurant overlooks the Estuary and the whole dining environment added to our special evening. The prix fixe menu was delicious, engaging and a wonderful part of our conversation. Each element of our meal was spot-on. The wines were... More

We had already eaten dinner but wanted to try something different for dessert so we stopped in hoping to sit at the bar and have a drink and something sweet. It's a great spot! Love the decor and the vibe. Knowing it's Daniel Patterson, I wasn't surprised. Three of us sat down and ordered the chocolate mousse (there were only... More

Friends from New York were staying in Oakland. I looked for a great place to dine in Oakland using many websites. Haven came up as a top restaurant. The location is fabulous - on the waterfront by Jack London Square but off to the side so there isn't too much foot traffic or lingering in direct view. Haven has a... More

We went for a special night out with our son and daughter in-law, and it was delivered. From the moment you walk in until you leave, you feel like the people who work here care about making your meal remarkable. It is a prix fixe menu, and when you add in specialty cocktails (which I highly recommend), and wine, it... More

It’s been 4 years since we last dined at Haven, and I don’t know why it’s taken us so long to return. We loved it then, and we love it even more now. The restaurant is situated near Jack London Square right at the yacht harbor on the Oakland Estuary. There are outside tables as well as inside dining. The... More

What a surprising treat to dine at such a great restaurant in Jack London Square. Recently there was a change in the kitchen, so I was anxious to see if it was as good as our first visit about six months ago. We were there on a Thursday night and less than half of the tables were occupied. When the... More
