Although a lot of us these days don't get to dress up as much as we'd like for a lovely date with our significant others, the times we do are always wonderful. LIV is a restaurant located in the White Oaks Resort & Spa just off the QEW on your way into Niagara Falls. Diligent, courteous, kind and attentive staff... More

If this restaurant could be closer to London I would be a very happy lady. My husband booked us a couple of nights at the White Oaks Resort & Spa where we also enjoyed a superlative Anniversary meal at LIV. Before we had a mouthful of food or drink we were welcomed by professional and kind staff. After a long... More

Our waitress was wonderful! One of our girlfriends was celebrating a birthday so "on the house" they brought all sparkling pinot grigio which is made by one of the local wineries just for LIV.

Went here for a Birthday dinner and was very satisfied. The food was great and we were very well taken care of. It is a bit pricey but well worth it for special occasions!

This is a place which PRETENDS to be luxurious but is GROSSLY overpriced for what it offers. The quantity and quality of food is average but he price is VERY HIGH. In my opinion it is not worth it.

Great food, service and ambiance. Pricey but so worth it! Those little extras that kept coming to the table....2 glasses of sparkling wine to celebrate my husbands birthday, a tasty sample from the chef, sorbet to cleanse the palette, warm towels to freshen up our hands before eating....on and on!!!!

We had an enjoyable dinner at the restaurant. The food was good. It came nice and hot. Service was slow, slow to order, slow to take our plates away, slow between courses, slow with returning after dropping off the dessert menu and slow with the bill. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we left the restaurant after 10.

Thank kidsxfour

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.
