Awards


In its eighteenth year of operation, Log Haven has been recognized both locally and nationally as a jewel on the culinary scene. Log Haven's philosophy is to create hand-crafted cuisine from only the freshest local and regional ingredients while incorporating classical and international culinary techniques. It is not our goal to simply create high-style food with an associated high price tag. Instead, we are renowned for creating every dish from scratch and prize ourselves on complex, deep, intense flavors at a reasonable price.

Some of our awards and recognition include:

2012
Open Table -  Most Romantic Restaurant in U.S. 

Zagat Survey - Top Restaurants in U.S.
Awarded Top Restaurant Rankings in Three Categories: Service, Most Popular and Decor
Zagat: "Escape to a haven in the woods" at this "romantic" Eastside "log cabin nestled on a hillside" with "amazing views " of Millcreek Canyon's "stunning natural scenery" ("complete with a waterfall in the outdoor dining area"): the "marvelous New American fare boasts "imaginative" "twists on old favorites", and the "staff is attentive" and "friendly", all of which warrants prices that veer toward "splurge".

Wedding Wire - Bride's Choice Award/Ceremony and Reception Venue
The WeddingWire Bride's Choice Awards ™ recognizes the best local wedding vendors from the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate quality and service excellence within the wedding industry. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Bride's Choice Awards™ are determined by the quality, quantity, recency, and consistency of reviews from over 1.2 million WeddingWire newlyweds. The 2012 award recipients represent the top five percent of WeddingWire's vendor community, which consists of over 200,000 wedding professionals throughout the US and Canada.

Dining Hall of Fame - Salt Lake Magazine Dining Awards 2012
“We instituted the Salt Lake magazine Dining Hall of Fame five years ago. We wanted to recognize restaurants that have not only reached a stellar level of excellence, not only have maintained that level of excellence–and we all know that maintaining is the hardest part–but that have continued to reach for it in a new way. These restaurants have continued to change, to embrace new techniques, new locations, new dishes, new products.

In that sense, they serve as examples. They inspire the rest of us. We don’t induct a new member every year, or even every other year. Only when a place rises distinctly out of the crowd do we deem them worthy to be included in this select group: These are our food heroes.”
Mary Brown Malouf, Dining Editor, Salt Lake Magazine

City Weekly's Best of Utah 2011 - Awarded in Two Categories:

Best Atmosphere/Reader's Choice: “Surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, a large pond, a trickling stream and a national forest, Log Haven’s rustic log-mansion ambiance is one of the West’s most appealing. But the spectacular natural surroundings are just part of the story. Log Haven owner Margo Provost and her staff strive mightily to provide a dining ambiance in which not only the body is nourished, but also the spirit. She wants her restaurant to be a respite of sorts, a place where customers are treated like family and where the soul can soar. City Weekly readers obviously find both Log Haven’s food and spirit to be filled with soul. Maybe that’s partly attributable to the spirits who are said to roam the restaurant at night."

Best Romantic/Reader's Choice: “It’s often said that, with the right person, anyplace can be a venue for romance. But, do you really want to gamble on romance with someone special? If not, you can increase your odds significantly by making a simple dinner reservation at Log Haven, where they’ve got all the bases covered. Great food: check. Appealing wine list: check. A lovely canyon drive to the restaurant: check. And, once you’re there, nothing in the romance department is left to chance. The intimate, comfortable surroundings, subdued lighting, personalized service, soft music and overall nurturing vibe of the restaurant makes it a no-brainer for marriage proposals, anniversaries and hot dates. It’s no surprise that so many Log Haven customers eventually also wind up getting hitched there.”
