Description: LIV Restaurant is the award-winning, unforgettable gem, located at White Oaks Resort in Niagara on the Lake. The locally inspired wine list, lighting and music in LIV provide a fantastic backdrop to a spectacular dining experience. The service exemplifies the Four Diamond level the hotel is known for and provides for an experience truly beyond expectations. Chef Michael Price and his team have done something extraordinary. They have taken Canada’s Basic Food Guide and transformed it through international cooking styles and seasonings to create an unparalleled, globally inspired four diamond menu. All of the ingredients are natural, each one chosen for its uncompromising purity. Our team are more than willing to come out of the kitchen (time permitting) to discuss the menu or any special dietary concerns you may have. The menu changes slightly every season to take advantage of the locally grown produce that is so abundant in the Niagara Region. The atmosphere is chic/sexy.

The food was great, portion sizes were good, I was expecting smaller for fine dinning. We ordered the Tuna & the Sea scallops.

My only complaints are the wilted burnt fries & the time for our entrees to come out exceeded 45 mins, and there was only 2 other tables seated.

Everything was really good. I specified in my reservation gluten free and was really surprised my server was aware of my request and even provided amazing gluten free bread that was baked fresh in house. A little pricey but well worth it. I ordered the sea scallops which were to die for! Thank you for the great meal. Can't wait to come back!

Lots of nice little extras like sorbet between courses, homemade bread and dips, a little stool for your purse. The Beef rolls $14 were really good but minuscule and the shellfish 4x $21 appetiser was enjoyable although very expensive. Then it fell apart. The service was lacking and the main courses were disappointing. The bison steak $55 arrived raw and the stuffed pork loin $42 had been sitting waiting to come out long enough for the glaze to get stiff and sticky and cooled off. Bummer
The manager was on it immediately with damage control for us and the adjacent table with a similar issue. A new steak arrived but I had finished my already cooled pork. We accepted the offer. Mark the manager did his job very well. Once finished we had to wait a long time for the bill then another eternity for it to be processed. The thing was that the restaurant was only about a third full the entire time

The food at this restaurant is such a treat. The menu has a long list of delicious and healthy options. They were very accommodating to a gluten free diet also. The smoothie sampler was a nice touch and breakfast was amazing. Will be back for sure!

Ended up having dinner here with my wife after our evening winery tour was cancelled but we were blown away by how good the food and service was here. This is truly 5-star dining at 3-star prices. From the crisp white linen tablecloths to the highly attentive table side service, it's clear that exceptional customer service is the #1 priority at this restaurant. The quality of the food was simply fabulous but yet the final tab was surprisingly modest. Needless to say, we'll definitely be back.
