Haven Gastropub Restaurant Review

: Haven Gastropub rocks Old Towne Orange's normally sleepy restaurant scene. The interior is lively and contemporary with its big picture windows, wood floors, stone walls and flat-screen TVs. Further enhancing the spirited ambience is the list of reasonably priced local and international microbrews on tap and in bottles. The main attraction, however, is the innovative cuisine put forth by executive chef Greg Daniels, who formerly cooked for such OC restaurants as Napa Rose and Tradition by Pascal. Chef Daniels brings his Cal-French sensibilities to a menu filled with comfort food favorites like French onion soup, buttermilk chicken and waffles, and mussels in a beer-and-cream sauce. Daniels’ fare particularly shines when he displays his sense of adventure. This is evident in familiar items such as the St. Agur blue cheese and roasted pepper-topped burger as well as duck prosciutto flatbread, and in more exotic dishes like lamb neck poutine and roulade of hog's head with shaved pecorino. Groups of eight to 14 may want to consider indulging in the special whole suckling pig dinner, which can be ordered through advanced reservation. Desserts have a gourmet edge too, as demonstrated by the house-made donuts served with Jameson-infused caramel.

Went here for lunch...heard the burgers were exceptional so we all ordered burgers. They were good, but $14 worth; not a Kobe burger--they offered a cheese spread on the burger. At those prices they should offer imported cheese from the mountains in switzerland.

Gastropub hmmm? Yes the beer list was what you would expect, but the food we tried needs some work. We had the fritto misto, which tasted more like deep fried lemon slices. The tacos were a bit overcooked too. I believe in second chances though. Hope for a better experience.
