Even if the missus didn’t handle special events there, Log Haven’s combination of spectacular natural scenery, fabulous flavors and seasoned service would win me over. While consistently garnering “Most Romantic Restaurant” awards, Log Haven, which dates back to 1920 and is located in a national forest, combines timeless log-mansion ambiance with first-class contemporary cuisine. General manager Ian Campbell’s eclectic wine selection supplements chef Dave Jones’ creative culinary program, which includes tempting treats like grilled lamb “lollipops,” tarragon-crusted sea scallops, peppered Morgan Valley lamb sirloin and homemade cilantro papparedelle. Desserts are divine treat at Log Haven, with uniquely sweet creations such as curried apple financier tartlet and sake-steamed Santa Rosa plums. Got marriage? Proposals happen here nightly.
