We recently had dinner at the Fair Haven inn. I do not think we have ever received such attentive service at a restaurant. The fish was cooked perfectly and there were so many extra little touches at dinner. Wish we could move this restaurant closer to home! We would be regulars!

The food is Greek and very very good. Specials are posted each night. Delicious seafood, beef and traditional Greek foods. Many appetizers, salads and entrees to choose from. Complimentary garbanzo beans salad and pickled beets. Dessert cart is four tiers high and it is hard to choose which would complete your meal. I had a crab cake appetizer-lots of crab and a subtle sauce for dipping. The Greek salad was fresh and tasty and not doused in dressing. I had the scallops served Grecque(sp?) style large tender scallops with bread crumbs and feta cheese, rice pilaf. Dessert was a chocolate cake but I was very sorely tempted to get the Baklava. Everything was top notch. Just give yourself plenty of time because the meal unfolds slowly. It makes for a relaxing wonderful feast, but could be frustrating if you're in a hurry.

We went to a weekday dinner at 5:30. At that time of day, the restaurant has four different menus to pick from: Taverna, Prudential(early bird), Specials and the regular menu. Everything looked great even though it took a while to understand why there were four menus.. We had their calamari, sauted but we felt a better description was that it was more like cooking fried chicken in olive oil, and the taste was fantastic. But the calamari was overcooked and therefore was tough. The Greek salad was excellant. The round loaf of bread they served the table was very bland. For dinner, my husband had the steak from the Prudential menu. It tasted great he said but was thin and fatty. Maybe they save the good steaks for the higher priced menu. He said that the corn on the cob was the best part of his entre. I had the regular menu veal Pizzioloa with mushrooms, peppers and onions in a red sauce over pasta. Fantastic tastes, over-cooked veal. Then came the dessert cart. NO complaints here. We tried the tiramisu and the pumpkin cheesecake, and they were fantastic.
The room was pretty, the wait staff was very friendly and attentive, and the timing of the meal was great. One little thing, the hostess needs a personality. She was proper but not friendly and never smiled.
Would I go there again? Yes, I would like to try other menu items to find out if this was just an off night for the cook. The taste of the food necessitates another try.

Great food but very very very slow service. Have not gone back because this issue has happened more than a couple times.
