I had the cheese board app and the risotto for dinner. They were both AMAZING!!! I highly suggest you try the watermelon, lime, vodka drink on their drink menu.

The restaurant’s drinks, food, and service were outstanding. I have been to Oakhaven several times, but this was the first for my girlfriend. She was ecstatic after her experience. We will definitely visit again.

This is a lovely spot for brunch with friends. The cocktails are excellent!! Food was mostly good to great, depending on what was ordered. Service was a little slow but it was a holiday weekend and the restaurant may have been busier than usual. All in all, happy to go back!

Every time I go to Oak Haven, I'm glad I don't live super-close because I would spend all my time and money there!

The bone marrow, especially, was fantastic -- like, "eyes rolling back in your head" yum. The bao was the perfect balance of savory pork and salty seaside acidity. The oysters were divine (as always).

We sat outside, so it was a wee bit chilly but the drinks kept us warm. Service was excellent -- they are always okay with us ordering as we go along.

An Amazing BRUNCH! We are frequenters at OHTB for dinner but this was our first brunch! My Mother's Day couldn't have been better!!
Our Waiter Coco was terrific! Friendly, personable and easy to talk with. Just like when we chat with Craig and Al.
The bottomless mimosa's were delicious with freshly squeezed orange juice. My husband had the bloody Marys which had a great "kick" to it.

We ordered the banana bread waffle, cheesy grits and OHTB Hash for the table. The waffle is the best I had in quite sometime. Crispy outside and tender on the inside with whipped butter and warm maple syrup. The grits were cheesy goodness and the hash was crispy with peppers onions and pulled pork. Just amazing.

My husband and daughter had the Breakfast Sammie and I had the crab Benedict! I highly recommend it if you love crab cakes. It was ALL crab with little binder. 2 huge crab cakes atop an English muffin with poached eggs and hollandaise. I was stuffed but still left room for the beignets. They were mint chocolate! Besides the coconut which are my all time favorite there, these came in as a tight second. A thoughtful treat from the owners for the table.

If you haven't been for dinner or brunch it's a must. Make reservations to secure a table inside or out and TRUST ME, you will not be disappointed! Thanks for another outstanding meal.

I went to Oak Haven for Mothers Day Brunch and it was excellent. The service was exceptional: courteous and attentive but not pushy. We had Crab Cake Eggs Benedict, Risotto and Shrimp and Grits. All of the food was perfectly prepared, plated and portioned. The peach mimosa's were flavorful and refreshing. Atmosphere was cozy and the staff was upbeat and friendly. Chef Jack did an amazing job in recommending and preparing our dishes. I look forward to my next visit to Oak Haven.

Beautiful place! Natural light in front and ambiance drew you in towards the back. We were seated right away, drink orders were taken (they were on point!), the food for the most part was decent. There was a bit of a mishap with the food order but it was quickly rectified. I had the mussels in white wine sauce, my friend did a keto version of the crab cakes Benedict (no bread instead there was sausage on the bottom), my other friend had the omelet and all share an order of bourbon French toast. There was a side of grits and bacon in there as well. The grits needed some more loving. The flavor was great but it was still very gritty. I don’t wanna chew on crunchy grits but as I said the food for the most part was good. Oh, and we had this strawberry chocolate mousse dessert. It was ok. Unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed with it and I can’t say anyone else at the table was either. Can’t love everything, I guess. Although we were surrounded by people, it was still quite intimate for the space. I throughly enjoyed Sunday brunch. I will definitely be going back.
I’m gonna be checking on those grits, haha!

It was our first visit for my husband's birthday. Got there early at 5 and parked right out in front. Short menu of entrees, but both the duck carbonara and the scallops were excellent. Appetizers of beet salad and crab cakes were generous portions. Crab cakes were some of the best I've had -- lots of crab meat, little breading, good sized, and nice sauce. Desserts were wonderful -- bread pudding and beignets. Waiter Ben was very accommodating and answered our questions. It was quiet night, so we had some time to chat with him and another waiter who arrived a little later. We will definitely return.

This is now my second time dining here in the past week. We had such an amazing first experience so that's why we came back. And this second dining experience did not disappoint.

We got a steak tartar, camembert and arancini to start. The camembert stole the show for me but all of those starters amazing. And then our entrees came out, most of us opted for medium rare burgers and I literally had a dream about it. Probably the BEST burger I've had in CT.

All in all, you'd be foolish not to dine here. The staff is exceptionally nice but also transparent, and the food is just divine. Can't wait to keep coming back!!!

We dined at Oak Haven on Valentines Day and took advantage of the Prix Fixe menu. The choices were perfect: lobster bisque, Brussels sprout salad, Short Rib and Tomahawk Steak perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Lovely atmosphere and friendly and informative staff. Great bar service and really unique cocktail list. Oak Haven is one of New Haven's best restaurants.

The bourbon variety alone is reason enough to stop in, and the food is always excellent. The wonderful service puts it over the top. Great place.
