Nestled among the trees up Mill Creek Canyon, Log Haven Restaurant has received national attention, and for good reason. Atmosphere, service, and food equally shine. Entrees range in price from $22-$45; the restaurant is not a budget diner, but the quality of the experience far outshines other restaurants of the same price point.

We sit at a corner window table. The historic building--a mansion made of logs from Oregon--was built as an anniversary present in 1920, and now provides a spectacular home for the restaurant. Outside, a waterfall tumbles down the mountain. The evergreen trees turn dark, as the sun sets.
The waiter is attentive, but not overbearing. Just reading the menu makes the mouth water, but the food far exceeds expectations.
We have found our restaurant. We will return.
