About Us

Situated on 40 private acres in the Wasatch National Forest, Log Haven Restaurant in Salt Lake City, Utah, has a history steeped in romance. The restaurant was originally built in 1920 as an anniversary gift from a husband to his wife, who knew she would fall in love with the property's flowing waterfalls, vast meadows and resplendent wildflowers. Today, the property is recognized as one of Salt Lake City's most romantic restaurants and the owners have been hosting weddings on the property for almost 20 years.

Log Haven Restaurant is mountain chic at it's finest. The restaurant is nestled at the base of a cliff, where mature trees and nature abound. The restaurant's log cabin construction creates a cozy and inviting environment and outdoor terraces provide rugged mountain views. The property's sparkling lake is a welcoming space for photographs of the wedding party and photogenic hideaways abound for portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs. The restaurant hosts weddings year round and during the holidays, the restaurant is decorated with glittering lights, evergreen boughs and vibrant poinsettias.

There are many spaces available for ceremonies and receptions, both indoor and outdoor. Many couples choose to get married in the Lakeside Garden Meadow, which sits along the waterfront and features a beautiful wooden gazebo constructed of logs.

Of the various spaces available for wedding receptions, perhaps the most popular would be Log Haven's outdoor Waterfall and Garden Patio, which seats up to 125 guests. Located at the base of a waterfall, the patio includes spectacular natural views, where a canyon provides a stunning backdrop. The patio is surrounded on three sides by the restaurant's cozy log cabin construction and window boxes and seasonal plantings lend color and more natural decor to the space.

We LOVED our Log Haven wedding! Over the course of 12 months they were helpful and responsive every step of the way. The day turned out beautifully. It was a little chilly but they put outside heaters up and provided our guests blankets. They were so helpful and kind the entire... Read More day, I can't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. Plus everyone couldn't stop raving about how excellent the food was! I had numerous people tell me and my family that it was the best wedding they've ever been to! Faith is so lovely to work with. And they were also extremely helpful with recommending vendors. We chose almost every vendor from their list, we had the true dream team!

Log Haven and its staff were professional, personable, and accessible--from the planning stages to the rehearsal to the wedding itself. I asked a lot of questions as the event drew closer and the wedding staff answered my emails within one hour. The outdoor amphitheater, behind...

We brought in cakes and pastries from local Salt Lake bakeries and the staff presented them beautifully on tiered plates. My husband and I highly recommend Log Haven for your ceremony and reception!

Our experience with Log Haven was wonderful from beginning to end. We got married in the meadow Sept 10, 2016 and it was breathtaking! The leaves were just barely starting to turn. Our reception was across the street at the restaurant where we rented the entire property (inside... Read More and outside) and it was perfect!!! Our wedding was about 250 people. We hired a lighting company to string bistro lights over the dance floor and it was dreamy! Faith is one of the wedding coordinators (sales and event manager) and was who we worked with the most. She was on top of everything, responded quickly to emails, and made everything so stress free! The day of the wedding she was fabulous and made sure everything went smoothly. Ian is the general manager/co-owner and was also very helpful the day of the wedding. Our parents gushed about Ian and Faith and how the two of them made sure they were taken care of and having a great time. Thank you so much, Log Haven, for the amazing memories from start to finish!

I would like to start off by saying that regardless of this review, I had an amazing wedding because I got to marry my best friend and spend the day with family and friends. However, there were a lot of disappointments and I encourage you to read on. I can't say that I was... Read More happy with them. Firstly, the Library (where I was married) was not accurately depicted to me. They don't have any photos of the event space and it is assumed the decor matches the rest of the restaurant. Well don't assume, because the rest of the restaurant is beautiful and classy and the Library is basically some hick version of someones mountain living room. I am not kidding when I say I had to ask someone to remove a falling apart bird house and many other "rustic" (cheesy) items from our ceremony room and the library was filled with books you'd find at a used book store that are falling apart. They weren't well preserved or leather even, it was like a school library filled with Judy Bloom and Twilight novels. The room was carpeted as well, which I found a bit surprising. Now none of this might be an issue if it was accurately depicted to me or even you. But the fact that they represent a space such as this, to be like the rest of the restaurant is just unacceptable. The staff was also rude and pretentious. I was never introduced to the manager, but I can only assume the man walking around in a suit and tie and telling people what to do was the manager. To him I'd say, please work on your rude attitude and pretentious demeanor because it's incredibly off putting. If you are planning on having your wedding here, don't forget your ID's because no matter if you are in the wedding party, a 60 year old man or just a guest, they will card you and if you don't have it, they will deny you (side note: we were all over 21 with the exception of 5 children). I wasn't warned, so PLEASE make sure to bring it! The only reason this has gotten two stars instead of 1 is because the food was incredible. The chef and kitchen staff deserve amazing credit for putting out such a great meal!

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful all thanks to Log Haven. From the day we toured the venue to our wedding day, we had such a wonderful experience planning with the staff. Faith and Kim were always available to assist and answer any questions. The on-site staff was equally... Read More as incredible and worked so hard to make our day perfect. Faith and Cynthia (the on-site supervisor) even brought drinks and ordives over to my husband and I while we took our photos during cocktail hour. Gestures like that meant the world to us, especially since we were able to try all of the delicious food that Log Haven offers. One minor thing that we didn't think about prior to our wedding was a transportation plan for our out-of-town/drinking guests because I found out on the night of that Uber/Lyft does not service up the canyon, only taxis and it took a little bit of time for people to catch rides back to the hotel. Aside from that oversight on our end, we are so grateful that we celebrated our special day at this amazing venue.

The ceremony location was stunning and walking in through the woods with my dad is a fun and unique memory that we will always have. It was a really cold night but they had space heaters out and people could go inside to warm up. I hope I'm not forgetting anything but you definitely will not be disappointed if you choose Log Haven for your wedding and reception location. We could not have chosen a better venue.

Overall, we loved our wedding at Log Haven, but there were definitely a few bad points along the way which I want to make others aware of in case it happens to them. Firstly, the good stuff. Well, the location is amazing - the trees, lake, waterfall...all are so beautiful.... Read More The food was delicious and the serving staff were polite and friendly. We had our wedding in the meadow and then had dinner in the restaurant with a few guests. It was a small wedding. Now, sadly the bad points. We are 99% sure we weren't told about the additional 20% charge of the total amount, but when we asked about it after the shock wore off, we were told by the event coordinator that she 'has worked there for years and has never not told anyone about this cost' and that we were mistaken. She was absolutely correct in stating that it says in the event details that there will be an added service charge, but we naively thought that that was for the meal only. What we don't understand, is why isn't the charge in writing from the very beginning? Why is it just stated as 'service charge?' and not 'a 20% service charge'? We feel like it was really misleading. If all the costs are discussed upfront then there are no surprises later. Secondly, my husband and I were in a long distance relationship, so we had asked that we both be cc'd in the emails so that we both got the information. This was virtually never done despite countless reminders to the event coordinator. I really felt like I was bugging her by constantly reminding her, but I'm not sure why 'reply all' just wasn't pressed after each email! It meant that I missed important information, and as my husband is in the military, he can't always check his emails on a regular basis. I would also ask her a few questions in the email, and would constantly only receive the answer to one of the questions in return, which meant numerous emails back and forth. I understand that they must be busy, but it was really unprofessional. Also, There was a total of 13 people at our wedding. From the beginning, the coordinator knew that it was going to be between 12 and 14 people. A couple of months before I had asked the event coordinator the dimensions of the table so that I could get a table runner made for it and had asked for one long table. She said that wasn't a problem and gave me the dimensions. Then ONE WEEK before the wedding she emailed to tell us that we would be seated at 2 separate tables due to having 13 guests, and that we would be served separately due to having more than 12 guests. That really annoyed us as what's one more guest?! Surely an exception can be made? Luckily, in the end I reminded her about having all my decorations made and she managed to accommodate us, but that was a freak out I didn't need a week before the big day... Really, the main thing was the extra cost. We did accept it in the end (and gave an additional gratuity as the day went really well), we just wish that they were upfront about the exact cost in writing from the beginning, instead of fingers pointing the blame at us 'not remembering' the cost discussion. It does seem like they have got a little too comfortable with their 5* rating, as the customer service was definitely not up to par. Overall, yes, we would recommend Log Haven for your wedding, just make sure you ask about ALL the costs up front. It really is a beautiful place and we had a wonderful day.
