We celebrated our tenth year anniversary at White Oaks Hotel and thought that we'd have dinner at the Liv Restaurant since the weather called for torrential rain. We ordered from the Table for Two menu for $119. The food was good, but the service was exceptional. We were given complimentary champagne which was a very lovely gesture.

By far the highlight of our trip to Niagara Falls. This was by far the best dining experience we have had in a long time. We appreciated the farm to table experience and the seasonal menu. We are already planning to visit again, to experience the fall harvest!

We went for their Sunday Brunch and the food was fantastic. We got a wonderful table by the window with a gorgeous view of the lake. The servers were attentive and friendly. The buffet style brunch had a large number of dishes to choose from and there was something for everyone. Everything was delicious. The noise level got loud as the brunch went on. There were a few loud parties happening so others had to speak louder just to talk. It’s a popular place for various family celebrations so if you’re looking for a super quiet brunch, you may be out of luck. Overall, highly recommend!
