    Best fish and chips in Boston. Feels like a Scottish pub with authentic food choices, a great whiskey selection and beers on tap that you don’t normally see around here. I would strongly recommend The Haven

    We had a nice dinner with our son and his wife on Sunday. We had made a reservation and the place was getting busy at 6pm. Service is attentive, the food is varied and better than regular bar food. I had Fish and Chips and the cod was excellent covered with a thin(not greasy) batter. Delicious!

    Very nice place for an Easter brunch, although the menu was small, there was something for everyone. It was a quiet cordial venue, bar looks gorgeous, ambiance was lovely. Can't wait to try the patio when weather is warmer!

    Always a great time at the Haven! The food is excellent, Jason (the owner) is always charming, and the staff are terrific. Their menu is excellent - I especially enjoy brunch here. If you're a scotch drinker, you'll love their wide selection of whiskies. But you'll find something to please you whatever your tastes are! 100% recommended.

    Great place to dine with our party of 6. The Haven Burgers were delicious. We also enjoyed the scotch eggs as appetizers along with beer and wine. The seating was comfortable and service from our waiter, Oliver, was just right. The interior of the restaurant is spacious with a cheerful ambiance. It’s one of the largest restaurants in Jamaica Plain, and it’s adjacent to the Sam Adams Brewery complex. I always enjoy coming to the Haven.

    Excellent as always and a little taste of Scotland just around the corner. For a Scotch drinker it’s also nice to go out to eat and have a variety of quality single malt scotch to choose from. Only wish would be to add maybe haggis bonbons and a steak pie to the menu.

    Food was great, as always, but our server was under-trained. The wrong appetizer was delivered (we eventually got the one we ordered), and later showed up on our bill along with a charge for the right one (it was removed). It was difficult to get our server’s attention; he seemed more focused on clearing other tables. We love The Haven and will of course go back, but we hope they will make sure that waitstaff are ready for prime time.
