Liv Restaurant - White Oaks Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
The expensive steaks were over salted- they offered to re-do them but really, if you are charging $50+ per steak you should be bang on every time. They took my friends Martini's off the bill (so I got no steak and my friends were rewarded w free drinks) and they brought us a desert on the house (I would never order ). They tried to make up for it but overall it was disappointing. For the price
point the quality control isn't there. We won't go back.
We made this reservation based on previous, highly positive reviews. We were celebrating our thirtieth wedding anniversary by spending a couple of days in the Niagara-on-the-Lake /Niagara Falls area. The restaurant was easy to access within the White Oaks Resort and Spa complex. We were greeted immediately and taken to a table beside the window. I had commented, when i made the reservation, that we would be celebrating our anniversary. We were surprised to open our menus and find them to be customized on the inside cover to mark our anniversary. Our waiter, "Stan", quickly introduced himself and provided us with complimentary champagne glasses, filled with sparkling white wine, to mark the occasion. Stan was very polite and cordial throughout the evening, as was Jessica, his assistant server. We were unaware that a Thursday feature is a shared dinner for two. This included our individual choice of one of two available aperitifs, one entree from a choice of three and a chocolate fondue plate for dessert for $65. Although the dinner menu offered many excellent options, we chose to go with the special and we are pleased that we did. The food was truly excellent as was the local red wine that we selected. The restaurant was quiet and the ambiance permitted us to reflect back on our thirty years together at a normal level of conversation. Upon leaving, we both indicated that we would readily recommend the restaurant to our friends and that we would make a point of eating at LIV again when we return to the area. A truly great evening. Thank you.
Great time today with close friends. The service was impeccable. Good attention to detail. Pleasure to receive the quality service. The food was excellent. Had the Mussels, Seafood appy 4x and Halibut. All were great.
The Martini's were spot on.
Had the fondue for two.
Great place for a classy special occasion. Prices are somewhat higher but worth the price.
The ambience is restive and the decor is quite exquisite.
Give your Wife a special treat and go there.
Lovely dining experience.
Downside, the mix of noisy (kids) family dinner at table next to ours when we were celebrating a special occasion 25 th anniversary/birthday. I am a mum, have done the family dinner. Had hoped when booking 'two can dine' event the restaurant would have adult/fine dining rather than family dining.
This was our third time at White Oaks Resort. Liv Restaurant is fantastic we have order from the menu as well as there Thursday Couple Night Special which was amazing for the price. Service was excellent our waitress and her assistant where very professional and polite. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that I know is heading to Niagara On The Lake
Excellent, again. This restaurant just has that touch. Those little extras without feeling snobby and snotty, but the fine touches that make you feel extra special each time you dine here. The food consistent and delicious each and every time.
You really have to take that special someone here.
Spectacular. We were there for our elopement dinner and they made it special. The chef offerings and palette cleansers were fabulous, the menu was varied and everything we ordered absolutely delicious. The wine and aperitif menus impressive. The staff was friendly and attentive and laughed at all of my father in law's dad jokes. We highly recommend.
We arrived to a lovely dining room with a view of the gardens. Our servers brought us a sparkling wine and warm clothes to clean our hands as soon as we arrived. Then a smoke salmon appetizer. We chose the dinner for 2 and after appetizers lime sherbet was brought to cleanse palate. Entrees were wonderful as we the chocolate fondue for desert. Service was impeccable. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
My girlfriend and I had spent the weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake and our way back to Toronto we thought we would stop by LIV and we were not disappointed. As a matter of fact even though we had an incredible weekend in NOTL she said that our dinner at LIV was the highlight of the weekend. Wonderful staff, amazing food, beautiful décor, very clean and neat restaurant/seating area and awesome service. They went over and above for us and it was a great experience with very fair pricing. I would highly recommend LIV to anyone going to or staying in NOTL. I just wish they had a large sign out front as it is located inside the White Oaks Conference Resort and Spa. I feel a larger sign would help people find it as opposed to the small sign that they have out front that really doesn't do it justice as this is a gem waiting to be found.
The atmosphere was very modern and romantic. I thought the food was good not great. Both fish meals were saturated in sauce, which was not noted in the menu description. The server was just ok but the rest of the wait staff was wonderful. I would probably order two small plates if we venture back.
My last visit was several years ago when White Oaks offered an 1-2-3 deal -- and that's great value. I did not stay at the Resort but came to LIV just for the breakfast buffet and dinner. Same friendly service and ambience of tranquility and steam-ironed tablecloth right at the table as they set the table. At dinner, their starter of "Shellfish 4X" with crab cake, avocado aioli; lobster spring roll, ponzu glaze; seared scallop, bourbon bbq sauce; jumbo prawn, citrus garlic butter is absolutely delightful ($23). I enjoyed the well-seasoned 8 oz Beef Tenderloin - with tarragon demi-glace, buttery rustic mashed potato - cooked to medium-rare and tender. The meal ends with their classic vanilla creme brulee with tuile cookie. All in all, an unhurried and enjoyable dinner overlooking their well-landscaped garden. Recommended.
The meals at Liv restaurant are the best hands down my husband and I have eaten in our lives. We go on special occasions just the two of us. The tastes and flavors that we have experienced at Liv are simply to die for. Every single time we go we are blown away with their amazing dishes. You need to eat here. Thank you Liv for making our date nights so wonderful!
Amazing service. Stan was our server and he and his team were exceptional. The right amount of attention and courtesy provided at every opportunity. The food was perfect. Great selection on the menu for a wide variety of tastes. Ian, manager, was attentive and a pleasure to speak with. We will return at our next opportunity!
we have been several times and food is always good. You can take new people there and trust it will be good food. They do not rush you between courses of food. Excellent wine list.
Good for conversation. Little things are nice the hot towel, the sorbet between courses, bread, little taste from the cook.
