We have been passing through Brattleboro VT for 10 years and never knew this place was a restaurant, let alone one of this caliber. The restaurant we thought we were going to was closed, and we found Peter Haven's by chance. I've had caesar salad...More

Peter Havens has an excellent reputation - and lived up to it; the Maine mussels appetizer with a very light tomato "fondue" broth was our delicious appetizer; my duck breast with sauce bigarade (citrus-based sauce) was the perfect combination - not too sweet and the...More

What a wonderful place to have dinner! The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet and the food is to die for! A little pricey but if you are celebrating a special occasion this is the place to go!

Creative food with superb service. We enjoyed the muscles with smoked tomato. Duck breast had a savory sauce that made it even more delectable. Rainbow trout with pesto sauce and mushroom risotto equally as delicious. Shown below is dark chocolate mousse with real whip cream....More

Had a great dinner experience. Service was very attentive and food excellent. Monkfish special was spot on. Only minor flaw was over heated bread.

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.
