I love tripadvisor! I never would've known about this sweet spot if not for TA. Perfectly prepared delectable food. I had the salmon. Cozy atmosphere with outdoor seating option.

So we went there twice last weekend, Friday and Saturday nights. Friday night we ate outside on their patio. Lovely evening. I'm a vegetarian and the choices were a veggie burger and a panko crusted heart of palm cake, their vegetarian version of a crab...More

We really wanted to try this place, but knew our small son wasn't an appropriate guest for the main dining room. So, we tried the patio on a glorious weather early evening and were not disappointed. We had the evening special-a Cuban pork sandwich-and the...More

I was surprised to find such good cooking. The heart of palm cake is a brilliant concept executed perfectly. You will never mistake it for crab, but it isn’t meant to be. A balance of crab spices, panko coating and well sautéed. I am still...More

It was a pleasant meal. The beet coconut soup was delightful. The prices are upscale but so is the food. The seafood seems to be reasonable fresh.

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.
