Fabulous New Years Evening dinner! Healthy portions with treats offered through out the meal. Rack of lamb was fabulous as was the pasta my wife had. My son enjoyed his pizza as well. The service was exceptional. Our waitress was kind enough to have the two person chocolate fondue shrunken down to a kids size desert! We'll be back again!
I made a 7:30 reservation but we sat for more than 35 mins before some manager came along and advised us that our waitress was just finishing up with a table and she would be here shortly but he would take our drink order. The restaurant was not very full and staff was not running around overwhelmed so not sure why the service was so slow and our waitress did not seem to have very many tables.
Service after that was fine and friendly.
The menu was not too ambitious. All the usual things and nothing out of the ordinary. My tuna was not seared properly and the seared part was a bit dry and my meal could have been warmer. The wild rice was absolutely delicious.
The other meal was the vegan curry and that meal was hot and very delicious and both meals were substantial.
Drinks were very good and the bread basket and sorbet were nice touches.
All in all good but I guess my expectations were a little high just like the prices on the menu. Very pricey restaurant so naturally you do expect high end food.
Room had a lot of ambiance and tables were beautiful set.
Food was delish! Service excellent. Chocolate strawberries were a nice touch for a birthday treat!
Wonderful spinach salad. Quiet large. A meal in itself. Tender and tasty steak with tasty potato purée and veg.
The little extras were fabulous. Staff cheerful and helpful. The ambience was wonderful. Loved the white table clothes. Don't see these much anymore.
Liv breakfast is the perfect way to thank my team for a job well done. The food and service is outstanding; the atmosphere is welcoming and polished.
Great food great service, good ambiance, server was very attentive.
From start to finish the service was excellent with nice touches like an amuse bouche and palette cleanser between courses. The food was excellent.
It wasn’t just a dinner it was an experience. We truly enjoyed everything
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.
We were very impressed with the service and the food. Very pleased with portion sizes and all the extras that were included.
Great service and the food was delicious. I would eat here again.
Excellent food, excellent service!
Vip service from beginning to end and the rack of lamb was cooked to perfection
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 is tasteless, exotic recipes that only appeal to few and way overpriced.
Wine tasting tour
Great restaurant ! The food was great & the service from thr staff was great & friendly !
The food was not the best. The service was okay but it was hard at times to see our waitress.
Lots of food just ok. Noise level loud, steak just fair
Awesome service. The little added extras that was served like the beef skewer and hummus with the bread was amazing. Great night
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.
Jen was my server. She was great, professional, personable & efficient. Food delicious. Keep up the good work Team LIV!
We celebrate a birthday and Anniversary and had the best waiter Stan who help to make the night very special for us
Wonderful service and excellent food
Nice extra touch’s
Champagne for our Anniversary
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 .
Great restaurant, fantastic service. Our server (James) was great, knowledgable and friendly. Not intrusive service. Food was spectacular.
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!
I asked to be in James’s section and they did not listen
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.
Service and food were excellent! They went out of their way to make this birthday celebration extra special.
Outstanding food, service and ambiance.
The restaurant is beautiful and the ambiance is perfect. The service was phenomenal. I felt welcomed which is so important. The food was delicious. I honestly have to say it is the best food I have had in awhile.
The food and service were excellent. The outdoor patio area could use some visual improvements though - it was rather unattractive.
This was probably one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time . The food and service were impeccable. Would highly recommend if you are visiting Niagara area.
