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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Have had dinner at Play a couple of times over the past few days and it has been very good each time. Server was attentive, without being annoying and the food was very good. We will probably dine there again before we leave the hotel.

The food was very good. The service was subpar at best. It took 20 minutes for our waitress to take our food order, this may have had something to do with her talking to other waitresses near the hostess booth. The manager made a mistake and put bleu cheese with my baked potato so I was given a new potato. Sadly, I was still charged an additional cost for the potato because it was a substitution for french fries. I think that the manager, who was very nice and apologetic, could have at least deducted the cost for the substitution.

I've eaten at Liv several times while staying at White Oaks as a guest and Liv is always incredible, but I've never eaten at Play Urban Cafe. We drove down from the GTA for lunch with family and Play did not disappoint!

Play is a bit more laid back, (and open for lunch) but everything from the food to the wonderful wait staff were top notch with the quality and attention to detail that you get to expect from White Oaks.

Simply wonderful!
