Lovely patio table. It was our anniversary and the waiter brought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
The meal was very tasty.
Would recommend The Gate House.

My wife and I went the the Gate House Thursday night. Bad experience. Servers were lacking in training, appetizer was wonderful but main course was filled with gristle and pasta was undercooked. When I tried to info the general manger I found out they had left for the night and “head chef” couldn’t be bothered to come out. Sent a “dessert” instead which we declined. Walked over to the main restaurant Treadwell to discuss with manager and was listened to But as to my request to speak with the General manager responsible for both restaurants so far has gone unheeded. As of this point I have no desire to visit either restaurants in the future and I live in NOTL.

Reservations given to someone else despite booking in advance and showing up early. Some difficulty getting a table. Limited menu as still doing only outside dining. Not sure I would come back. Nothing memorable or outstanding.

Nice, quiet outdoor setting. Great service. Would have been nice to have a more upscale menu choices , maybe pork loin , roast beef, ribs.
Food and price was fair. Tomato soup was excellent

Huge and delicious personal pizza so enough for lunch tomorrow too. Lovely glass of Niagara wine. Device was very good but a bit slow due to understaffing. Cut a bit short due to a big rain storm and patio seating.

My wife and I needed a night away to relax and unwind. We stayed at The Prince of Wales and the Gate House was only a five minute walk. After eating at the Gate House I would gladly walk 50 minutes for dinner. Great atmosphere and service.
Highly recommend the Gate House for a dinner destination.
Thank you.

The Gate House is ideally located on the main street in NOTL. Had an unhurried lunch which capped off an earlier wine tasting just right.

We were delighted to discover that fine dining is alive and well during the pandemic. Excellent food and service. Superb soup and beet salad, fine halibut and chicken entrees and the birthday creme brulee for my partner was much appreciated.

Food was very flavourful, servings were generous and service was impeccable. Steak was overdone but they were extremely apologetic and gave us a dessert ..... Sticky Toffee pudding, which was beyond delicious. We really appreciated the gesture and will definitely be back.

Although the menu was somewhat limited, the food was excellent as was the service. The ambience was just a little bleak, largely due to the tables being widely spaced and no table decoration - all due, I suspect, to Covid-19 protocols

This is one of those times when the serving staff can make all the difference in the world. Our server didn’t seem very genuine when he welcomed us. And then after he took our order, never asked how the food was, never asked if we wanted another drink (we did) and we suddenly couldn’t wait to leave. The food was probably fine but when you aren’t treated as guests you want to have return, you can’t wait to get away.

On the whole was disappointed with the food we were served.

The peach and goat cheese salad while visually stunning was a let down due to the peaches being hard and therefore having little flavour. Not acceptable really as we are in prime peach time and they are wonderful and juicy. The quiche and simple salad looked lovely, was very light but was flavourless due to having little to no seasoning in either the filling or the pastry. The rosemary sea salt fries were very nice but this shouldnt be the highlight at such a well known restaurant.. Thank goodness the meal was saved by the blackberry pane cotta which was excellent!

Dining at The Gate House (Dinner experience of Treadwell due to the COVID19 pancemic) was near perfect. The service, food and wine was perfect. It was somewhat noisy because we were seated outside. The overall experience is pricey, but worth the money.
