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

Tonight my husband and I sat at the bar and had a delicious dinner. We each ordered an entree of the day paired with a great bottle of wine. Brian, the bartender, was knowledgeable and engaging. We had a great meal, enjoyed the atmosphere and saved 15 minutes on our trip home!

I had the special swordfish which was moist and flavorful. Nice atmosphere, service excellent. It was a busy Saturday night but the noise level ws not a problem

We were two couples visiting the area, and we had read about the restaurant. What a terrific meal! Each of us loved what we had. Mine was a squash soup and a fillet, perfectly prepared. The wine list is extensive and varied, and they have a knowledgeable sommelier. The service was attentive, unobtrusive, fast and friendly, and the server knew... More

My wife & I dined @ Peter Havens this past weekend. We tried it on the same weekend last year. I wanted to like it as much as our last visit. I should have gone with my original choice of the Filet, which I ordered last year. I opted to try the Shrimp Special instead. While it tasted delicious, It... More

I have been a couple of times now and it is spectacular. The service I received from both Brian and Maggie were impeccable. The food and wine were superb. The ambiance tastefully beautiful. If you haven't tried Peter Havens yet you definitely won't be disappointed.

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.
