Had dinner here last week. Small restaurant with active/full bar scene. Bar is not separate from dining area so it's fairly noisy. My wife asked about attributes of a wine. Server had no clue. Service was very slow. 3 different people waited on us. Food...More

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.
