    The drinks are amazing! The service was great! We ordered almost everything on the menu so we could all share. There was only ONE dish that we didn’t LOVE! That in its self is an amazing feat! You can’t order anything bad here. The renovations are beautiful. Our only comment was the the music selection was fine but for us questionable ( strange 90’s-2000’s remix?) but not too loud, it was fine just hit us as odd. We’ll be back!

    Quickly has become one of my favourite places to be. The food is flavourful, drinks delicious. This restaurant has a great relaxed vibe with tasteful decor and chill music.

    Delicious food and cocktails. Perfect ambience for a date night or group hang. My only complaint is that most of our dishes were too expensive for what we received. I don't mind paying for good food but the portions and ingredients made it hard to justify the price.

    Love the atmosphere. Took a long time getting the initial drinks. Staff were friendly and great. Fish tacos were good but not spectacular. My friend ordered the Green curry, I tasted it and it was amazing. Overall a great place, would definitely recommend.

    Atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. Dinner with 2 couples and shared almost the whole menu. Everything tasted fantastic and the staff were phenomenal. Drink list has plenty of unique and fun cocktails - we tried several and all were a big hit. Will definitely eat here again. Cheers!

    The food and drinks tasted great and the atmosphere was lovely, however the tacos were very small for $12. They looked much bigger in photos.

    Service was great, but the menu is extremely limited. Only two items that have cooked protein, and my cocktail was very bitter tasting.

    Tiny wine pours. Under 4 oz. Tasteless mushy octopus and a soggy Singapore slaw. Left after 2 small expensive dishes for better food down the block.

    You get what you pay for here and you pay quite a lot. The cocktails were super unique & quite delicious, some with enough layers of flavour to confuse the palate. The food measured up. Tiny portions (we needed two each to be full) but incredible flavours and clearly high quality nutritious ingredients. Staff, kind and patient, and on point with their recommendations. A new go-to for me in St. John’s.

    We had a wonderful meal. The decor was beautiful and the space very welcoming. Greg made us some great cocktails and our server had wonderful recommendation. Our only regret was not being able to eat more as the food was delicious. We will definitely be back !

    There were a lot of fails on LIV part during our meal. The main ones that I would mention are your drinks have way too much bitters in them- making the drinks more liquorice flavour and taking away any other flavour or ingredients put in the cocktails. The second is when our meal was brought out wrong and I was biting into what was suppose to be a shrimp and was chicken. I have an allergy to chicken and when I told the waitress this she just seemed to brush it off and her response was yeah she sent you the wrong dish. I’m home today, feeling pretty sick due to this experience. I understand we all make mistakes, but the way your waitress handled this situation was very unprofessional. Several times we had to ask for things like napkins, or have our table cleared. This will be my last visit to LIV and I wouldn’t recommend.
