One of our founding pillars at White Oaks is our belief in living a healthy, well balanced life. Through every facet of our business at White Oaks Resort & Spa we endeavour to improve human performance whether it involves your body, mind, or even your business and career. At PLAY Bar & Grill we had the opportunity to provide some classic dishes with a twist of healthy. You’ll see whole grains and whole wheat options as well as new ingredients that enhance old favourites and change them to healthier options. Our Play menu complements your efforts in the gym or on the court all in an urban environment that is interesting and family friendly. While we are serious about healthy living, and providing a healthy menu we’ve had fun putting PLAY together and we do realize that no matter what we put on the menu, there will be some that will still want their “fun food” and heaven forbid, white bread! We encourage you to make Play a regular dining spot.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the menu selection was limited. However, when we finally got our food, the calamari was overdone and it took forever for the server to bring our food, get our cheque, etc. Hopefully this will improve, but we would not recommend Play for dinner at this time.

Salad had a little too much dressing, chicken was a little dry, but they were pretty good before so it's probably just an off day. Great service and quiet environment, perfect for a lunch date!

We went in hungry but wanted to have sharable appetizers so we opted for a plate of nachos of which by the way our Server advised that she would only serve us a half size portion due to its size... when the platter arrived it was massive, like enormous for just 2 people. The half size can easily feed 4 people.. we also had a pitcher of white sangria and that was absolutely delicious!!! The value, ambiance and friendly helpful staff makes this spot worth another visit :)

The patio and tables were so well spaced out it makes you feel comfortable and able to relax and enjoy. Our waitress Molly was informative, sweet, respectful with keeping distance as necessary. The manager Lexie visited to ensure all was great. It was a fantastic and safe place to enjoy and afternoon of charcuterie and Sangria.

Our server was outstanding, very professional and kind! She had great energy. Unfortunately The place was outdated and old looking. We ordered the chicken dish which was very oily and plain with very little flavour. I would have preferred to go to the other restaurant (Liv) but it was only open for breakfast. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, especially if you are visiting the wineries, but I would not eat here.

Ny steak was rubbery and had mushroom gravy on it. Was more like roast beef and gravy from a frozen dinner. Calamari was okay though.

Menu over all needs some improvement. However I recognize that things have just reopened after being closed for a while.

Service was good until we wanted our bill, staff were run off their feet, due to Lynn Nicol's appearance that evening. Not sure if the staff were aware that many people who had purchased tickets also booked for dinner.
Had the grilled cheese/lobster chef's special. It was great, just skip the quinoa next time. Not sure what that added to it + made it extremely messy with it falling out everywhere when you ate it.
But I would go back, loved the atmosphere and pricing was reasonable.

The charcuterie board was very poor quality. It has chunks of Parmesan and Romano cheese. Not cheeses that should be eaten in large chunks. Very cheap cuts of meat and the antipasto came from a jar. Very disappointing.
