Not enough superlatives!. There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience at the Log Haven. Thank you all for a wonderful night. The return of Chef Jones we were told has, in the staff's minds, bettered the experience. having never dined here we cannot say. But, his menu is exquisite with something for everyone. The tastes were well blended. Presentation unreal. The service is top of the line. We were not rushed to our table but were able to enjoy a cocktail by the beautiful fireplace while our son enjoyed viewing the memorabilia scattered around the restaurant and its entrance area. Did we forget to mention that the wonderful food, services, etc., were all enjoyed while the Log Haven was on generator power. Our trip from NC to UT will be remembered from the evening we spent with all of you in your beautiful restaurant. We will come back to see the waterfall lit up next time we are in Salt Lake. 5 star!
So Sad. What was once one of the premier dining experiences in Utah has become an over priced banquet hall. When Log Haven opened in the mid 90's it was wonderful, everything was fresh and unique, now it's sad and contrived. Maybe they should take a clue from Millcreek Inn and do one thing right instead of two things poorly. Fine dining they are not.
Log Haven Dog Days Very Nice Dinner for us and the pooch. Went to Log Haven's Dog Days of Summer last night. Fabulous meal and service. They went out of their way to treat us and our dog very well. The setting was beautiful, food wonderful and we were able to watch the "floor show" of our dog and another dog have fun running around, chasing each other and wrestling. We will definitely go back.
Exquisite Wedding. Thank you so much for all your hard work & helping with countless details and decisions! Everything was absolutely perfect! We planned everything in the winter and had to trust you on what it would be like...the pictures don't do it justice! None of our guests could get over the beauty of it all! We're still hearing about how wonderful the scenery was. Thanks again!
Best in the state!.
An incredible restaurant. What a find!
Enjoyed crab cake appetizer, pan roast rabbit for entree. My new favorite! Rabbit was melt in your mouth and the polenta/mushroom accompaniment ? wow. Tried several other items with friends ? salmon, bison, pasta ? all excellent.
Delectable key lime cheesecake and chocolate tart. Great vibe in the restaurant ? amazing views. Perfect service, efficient, gracious and not pretentious. Extensive wine list ? it just gets better and better. Ask for patio seating near the waterfall. Go ? visit ? be amazed.
Amazing Experience. My Friend and I dine out together once per month, we take turns choosing the restaurant. Friday night 5/23/08 Log Haven was her choice. The ambiance was amazing, our view incredible and the food divine. We had a wonderful time. The staff was professional and all lent to an amazing experience. I would recommend this establishment to anyone and plan on taking my husband for Father?s Day.
What a disappointment. My husband and I shared our first date at Log Haven over 6 years ago and recently returned to celebrate our anniversary. What use to be a fabulous dining experience has turned out to be a huge disappointment in service, menu, and quality of food. The manager himself was extremely rude when asked to open the bottle of wine we brought and our server did not know the menu, behaving very 'plastic' during the entire evening. When we did get our food it honestly tasted terrible. Log Haven use to be such a romantic, delicious fine dining choice and now I would only go to enjoy the waterfall - eat somewhere else.
Best in the state. I was referred to this restaurant as the place for dining in Salt Lake. Web-site has nice photos - but it is eye-popping in person. Log cabin atmosphere with waterfall views. The food is spectacular - not over complicated, stuffy - but approachable, solid and cutting-edge cuisine. I visited with several friends and we passed our dishes around with elation at the different flavors and styles. We will be back whenever we are in town! The server was knowledgeable and professional. Variety of wines represented on their wine list. I loved that its ambiance was comfortable and we did not have to be formally dressed. There were several in our party and the timing of our three courses was perfect. One person has special dietary needs and was accommodated beautifully by the chef. I recommend the fried calamari, bison and the creme brulee. It truly is a must for Utah - unbelievable views, outstanding menu, and top-notch service.
Last Saturday, March 1st, 2008, I celebrated my thirtieth birthday by dining at Log Haven. Prior to this meal, I had read many favorable reviews of thisrestaurant and was very eager to try it. Let me start by saying, the entire experience was extremely disappointing.
Our server, who proclaimed on multiple occasions, ?I?m a professional,? was anything but. We ordered mussels which smelled so awful they should have never left the kitchen. When we brought this to our server?s attention, we had to argue with her as she questioned our judgment. I have never had mussels that smelled so terrible. Our entrees ranged from lackluster at best to just plain inedible at worst. My mother ordered the beef cheeks which she described as little more than beef with gravy. My girlfriend ordered the rabbit which she said was good but the polenta tasted like it came from a tube. I had the seared diver scallops which were, in point of fact, extremely bland. The pasta was slightly over cooked and chorizo lacked flavor. But, the worst was my father?s Cornish game hen which was so tough on the outside and dry on the inside he was unable to eat it! For dessert, my mother ordered the lemon custard tart which was so sweet, after each having a taste, the four of us could not finish.
Two strikes and your out.. After much prodding by friends I tried Log Haven 5 years ago. The service was terrible and the food was less than thrilling. After hearing from friend that the service had improved and the food was great I decided to try it again. With an open mind I gave it a try. This time the service was slightly better. Atleast the waitress did not insult us this time. The food however had not improved. The concepts were interesting but the execution was poor. The sauces were not tight and flavorful. They either had too much liquor or too much salt. If you like ambiance this is a good place, but beware the food and service are greatly lacking.
