It is a beautiful space with lots of room between tables. The servers are well trained and very helpful with menu choices and food intolerances.

So we had a bad start to our breakfast. We were seated and then no one came to see us. The staff seemed young and inexperienced. I got up after about 10-15 min and went over to the bar area where 2 was standing and 1 busy and asked if someone will serve us. No one came...
We finally called the very kind lady serving the table next to us... she reacted right away. She turned it around, I think her name was Serf, not exactly sure but she was amazing and turned what was a start of a bad day around.
It's crazy that no one came over to check or apologize, oh well.

Fabulous meal at LIV. So glad they have reopened post pandemic. Service was warm, friendly and efficient. Nice touches added with amuse-bouche, sorbet pre entree and mini homemade chocolates with the cheque. Incredible corkage fee offered. Thank you all for a fabulous evening

The food quality has gone down since our last visit a few years ago, but the prices have not. For the cost, I expect much better quality. I think it’s time for a menu overhaul to bring White Oaks in line with other luxury hotels in Ontario. It seems stuck in time and we were disappointed after having many delicious meals here in the past - including at our wedding in 2012. Our family members and friends still rave about that meal; the dinner we had this visit wasn’t anywhere close to that previous standard. One thing I will say, though, is that the wait staff continues to be attentive and fantastic. They deserve better food to serve.

First time at LIV and we were very pleased with the experience. Definitely not a “cheap date night” but for a special occasion it’s a lovely choice.

We had noted we were celebrating our anniversary and were brought some bubbly to toast as we were seated.

The “little extras” that they include are a nice touch. The Amusé Bouche, and Palate Cleanser, and the touch of chocolate at the end elevated the experience.

We stayed at the White Oaks and dined in the Liv restaurant for both breakfast and dinner .
Breakfast was good, decent menu and portions were fine .
Dinner was great with a lot of little touches . As we were celebrating birthdays they gave us sparkling wine and then between courses they did the mousse bouche and sherbet . Warm towels were offered at the start of the meal as well. It has been quite awhile since I have had that service at an upscale restaurant . Our server Henny was great as well. Food was very tasty and good sized portions . I would definitely recommend it .

This is THE place for a date night dinner. Visiting from U. S., chose for our anniversary dinner - no regrets!
Food was outstanding as was presentation. Service is top notch, Emily was our server - superb.
Had a small issue with my meal selection, manager Matt took care of it immediately.
While location is not NOTL nor with a view of the falls, once inside, you totally forget that and enjoy the surroundings they provide.
Five stars and I don’t give that often!

We were spoiled with excellent service and the little extras to make it a special night from the complimentary sparkling brut for our celebration to the lemon scented wash cloth after a long day of wine tours to the amuse bouche, the palate cleanser between courses and the chocolates to end the evening. Everyone was talking about coming back not only for the restaurant but the spa too next time.

The night didn’t start off to well, the restaurant failed to remember we had a reservation at 9:30pm. There was confusion and they scrambled to put a table together. I asked for flowers to be at the table as we were celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary, but that didn’t happen. The service was ok, however it was slow. Drinks took a while to come out. Turns out the drinks come from their sister restaurant across the hall, guess we weren’t priority. We ordered Caesar salads for an appetizer, but they were so fishy we couldn’t finish. The smell of anchovies was too strong and was a turnoff. We ordered the NY strip steak for dinner and it was mediocre. We asked for it to be cooked medium rare but it came out very dry. I’ve read plenty of reviews and have seen a fair amount of complaints, but figured we would give it a try. We also ordered the Parmesan Frites as an appetizer but the waiter completely forgot to bring them out. We didn’t have the heart to tell him he forgot.

Overall 3 rating, doubtful we will be back.
