We have dined at LIV many times over the past twenty years and have never been disappointed. This occasion was particularly memorable from the quality and value of the food (crispy naan, sea bass and scallops) and the outstanding service (thanks, Heni!).

From a convenience point of view, 5 stars. The menu while the food was tasty was limited and I think needs more options. The service and attentiveness of our servers both mornings was excellent . The opening smoothie was delicious and should have been available as an option. We would readily dine there again. We are biased however as we always feel very much at home and welcome at white oaks. Just a further note. The restaurant and the hotel are noticeably spotless and coved determined. We felt perfectly safe and all protocols were observed,most important in these terrible days.

Awesome start to the evening. 1 hour gap between apps and entree. Poured wrong wine. Long wait after entree to dessert options. Staff was great and made it right but too long between courses for the higher rating. Food was awesome.

First visit to LIV, our entrees of ribeye steak & scallops were delicious, the wine recomendation was spot on. It was clean, quiet with good service. The manager actually went through the dining room, table to table, introducing himself & asked if any issues... wonderful experience

What an amazing dining experience! The food was outstanding!! The best rack of lamb I have ever had in a restaurant and the bacon wrapped fillet was cooked to perfection. The appetizer were presented so well, the portion was perfect and the flavours were magical! Our server was one of the best servers we have ever had! She was informative, friendly her timing was perfect. This was a 10/10 dining experience.

Server was polite and discrete while we were eating. Food was well prepared and presents. Some annoyance with fruit flies while we were eating; had to constantly swoosh them away so they would not land on food. All in all a nice dinning outing for us even though we thought it was a bit over priced.

Overall good dining experience. Service was excellent, the dining room is the same room that is used for breakfast service and is good but nothing special. Dinner menu was limited as re-opening for dinner in a COVID-19 world is still a work in progress. The entree prices are at the top end of the spectrum and I am not sure they are at that level. Dont get me wrong, the food is good but when you are in the $50/entree range, the food needs to be better than good - it needs to be great. I would say between my wife and I, my entree was great, hers was just good.
Overall I would recommend but budget accordingly

We ate on a wet soggy patio. There was no where to put my purse. My french toast and fruit really only contained thin orange slices and 2 starwberries. The furniture was crappy plastic.
We wanted a romantic anniversary--it was not. Will not return.

LIV Restaurant was chosen for the reason of it’s all star rating and quality. It also tries very hard to bring in food from around the region. I chose the restaurant for a very special birthday date. What I had prepared did not disappoint. The evening was very much a success and my girl friend was very surprised and pleased. She told me that she could not of asked for a more memorable birthday celebration. The table was in the perfect location and we both enjoyed the appetizer, main course and wine very much. I could not of asked for more... because the romance was just kept going even going for a drink at Play afterwards.
Turned out to be a very special night for both of us in the end.

We found the experience enjoyable other than the delay in receiving our cocktails. The environment is relaxing and appealing. There were other diners in our area and my husband and I were still able to enjoy private conversation during the dinner. Management. knowing we were celebrating an anniversary, treated us to sparkling wine cocktails to begin our evening. Our server was knowledgeable and pleasant. We have dined at White Oaks often over the years and always think of LIV when we are planning a special evening.
