Play Bar & Grill - White Oaks Resort & Spa
Five of us had delicious lunches in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. The staff were all friendly and efficient and we lingered - long past the point that they should have been flicking the lights on and off. We’ll go back
It was a great meal but it took a long time to be served despite the place being empty. I would definitely come back again though because the food and variety offered made up for it.
Great kids meals for $10 with elegant presentation
Our server was very friendly and patient with us just hanging out with our drinks and food. Mixed greens salad is fabulous!
Casual elegance, delicious food and great service. We loved the complimentary stack of housemade chips and dip that were served to enjoy while our meal was being prepared! Our party ordered ordered their Pressed Parm (chicken parmesan) with a Baked Sweet Potato and a Heineken beer; California Club with a Caesar Salad and a Diet Pepsi; and the Pressed Turkey with a modified Caesar Salad (substituted Dressing with raspberry vinaigrette) paired with a glass of Peller Estates Chardonnay. So good!
Staff were very friendly and accommodating when we were late. Mussels were great, generous serving. Fresh potato chips and dip are always amazing!
Cole was our server and he was EXCELLENT. The food was fantastic— I had the fish tacos and my spouse had the vegan sandwich with a side lentil salad, both delicious. We went for our anniversary and were immediately offered really nice champagne. Since we were staying at White Oaks, we got 10% off! It was a fantastic experience, I highly, highly recommend Play for a special occasion or even just a nice dinner. The prices are great, the ambiance is great, fantastic food and service.
This was my first time here and I would definitely return and recommend it to others. I choose it for a Fathers Day meal because of the vegan options that the menu had. The restaurant wasn't very full because we choose to go between lunch and dinner time which made it great for us to be able to have nice conversations while watching the soccer game. The service was great and my only minor complaint about this was the fact that the waitress gave us incorrect information about our wine selection not being vegan. Overall the value was fair but I would have been content with a larger portion of the pizza for the price. The others in my dining party had the fish and chips which was a much better value. Overall it's definitely worth a visit whether for a special occasion or just an everyday meal. I will definitely be returning!
We always enjoy our meals at PLAY and the service is next to none!
We were there is past weekend for our anniversary and treated like gold by the establishment and by our server Joanna.
Each time we are at White Oaks we look forward to eating at PLAY. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for great food, healthy options, and very fair prices.
My mom and I ate lunch and dinner here on Friday, June 8th while on a mother and daughter getaway. The portion sizes were good. The service was great! The food was just okay. We ordered sirloin for dinner and it was served cut into 5 pieces and served over almost raw vegetables with a very overdone loaded baked potato. We were very disappointed. The calamari were ordered as an appetizer was excellent. At lunch we ordered soup of the day (BBQ chicken), which was good, and a "health nut quinoa" salad, which left something to be desired as there was hardly any taste. Love White Oaks, but wouldn't eat at this restaurant again.
This was the fourth time I've been to PLAY and I've enjoyed myself every time. We were there celebrating my sister in law's birthday and the staff really went out of their way to make us feel special. We got champagne and dessert complimentary! We had two small children with us as well (3 and 5), and the kids seemed to enjoy it too.
Our server was very attentive and friendly. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere!
Our server Samantha was outstanding! She had reccomendations for food and drinks and her personality made for a lovely time!
The staff could be a bit friendlier and faster. Water shouldn't have to be asked for. And the lettuce in the side salad was disgusting and limp as if it had been made ahead of time and refrigerated.
Sandwich and gluten free bread was amazing and the wine list was good.
We were in town for s wine tour and our hotel was across the road so very accessible. Service was ok and same for the main course. Appies were good. It was not my favourite but the menu had sone healthy options. They had live entertainment which was quite good so we enjoyed that a lot .
The atmosphere is nice, low lighting and modern. I had the sweet potato bowl, which was healthy and quite delicious, and a substantial size.
Great food and and dining options. We had lunch and dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed the vegan options. The pistachio creme brûlée was good. I would recommend perhaps a smaller portion with the brulee and perhaps add something else to the dish as it was pretty rich. Maybe some kind of accoutrement to balance the flavour and refresh the palette.
The fish tacos were good and the side bean salad was the show stealer.
Consistently good. Great service and good vibe.
We stayed at the White Oaks Inn for a mother-daughter mini getaway and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Play. The service was friendly and excellent.
The wine corkage fee is reasonable and a real value add. We came from Toronto and will come again!
Excellent appetizers, nice surroundings, great server.
The sweet potatoe salad bowl was very disappointing.
No flavour, large portion but you can only eat a little bit of it. Quinoa was overpowering.
Had an amazing dinner with my husband and son. Would go back again as often as possible. Great time great food
Wait staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Food was enjoyable. Restaurant was busy and was noisy so not really a spot for a quiet, intimate dinner. Good for a quick, inexpensive but nice meal
The food here is so amazing. I have a gluten and dairy allergy and they can actually offer several options to enjoy. The flat bread (GF DF) was AMAZING. And our server was one of the best I have had. She was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and accessible. We had a great night.
This was Play’s second chance. We had horrible service last time we went. As it is a neighbourhood restaurant, we wanted to give it another the chance for a Friday night “ go to” place. The food was very good again. But the experience was terrible with appalling service. The manager took our wine off the bill by way of apology but never even came by our table. We will not go here again.
Good service. Server had difficulty making suggestions. Good sandwiches but a restaurant in a hotel of this caliber should be able to make their own chicken fingers. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Fries were cold and salads were very overdressed. Less is more. The restaurant is in the hotel and in the middle of the coldest week on record, I guess you don’t have much choice. Next time will battle the cold and venture outside the hotel.
We had breakfast/brunch when we got there at 11am. Food was good, although a bit expensive. Service was good even when it got a little more busy later on. It has a nice view of the indoor tennis courts
Good size portions for the price paid. Excellent service
Very impressed with service, food and ambiance. Great food and fair prices. Would tell my friends in a heartbeat. My girl-pals and I have already decided this will be our annual meeting place for our christmas lunch
Great food, great staff, and really nice restaurant vibe.
The food was amazing and the service was great as well! We went on a Friday evening and they had live music as well. The restaurants atmosphere is really ideal for either an intimate evening or just going out with friends.
A great spot for either a quick bite or a healthy meal. We've been several times and never have been disappointed! I've recommended this place to friends. Always nice to find a place that has great service along with good food!
Great spot for our meal after our annual shopping trip. Love this restaurant. The Sangria is fantastic and the food is delicious.
Service and food never disappoints.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Great menu options for lunch and dinner.
our server shauna was impressive. she was very friendly and emitted a nice sense of aura. loved the way she talked.
We always love PLAY at White Oaks. The atmosphere is very cosmopolitan and friendly-the food and service is consistently good.
My wife and I ha e eaten there several times amd enjoyed it. They have changed the menu recently and there wasn't the selection there once was.
We thoroughly enjoyed ou meal and time here. The wait staff were helpful and accommodating. Food was delicious and wine was tasty
We received a glass of sparkling asvit was my daughters birthday. We all appreciated this. Such a nice surprise
We came for our one-year anniversary, and selected the restaurant because of it's reasonable prices and vegetarian options. We were very well-taken care of, and the ambience was better than I was expecting. While the food itself left a bit to be desired (their panzanella salad was essentially a greek salad with basil and a side of olive bread, and the power bowl - though we substituted quinoa for rice because of an allergy - lacked vibrancy or depth). The portions were generous, and we had an enjoyable night.
An excellent place to go for plant based & vegan individuals. Was a nice atmosphere & would go again!
