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.

FABULOUS lunch on the patio to celebrate a friends birthday on the beautiful terrace. Lovely atmosphere and menu offerings was good. Bouillabaisse perfectly balanced flavours and seafood properly done and not overcooked. Mussels with cream chilli sauce, great sauce. Did not disappoint and recommend for any
Occasion. Service outstanding!

We had the best experience The Gate House. The service was exceptional!! The waitress went out of her way to celebrate my dad and my birthday by bringing a dessert (on the house) with two candles. It was just so thoughtful - especially since we both didn't get to celebrate given the Pandemic. They were also very kind in accommodating my vegetarian parents. We hadn't been out for dinner together since 2019...and this place made it so special and so worth the wait and drive from downtown Toronto! Thank you guys sooo much! xoxo

During COVID-19 this restaurant served us on the patio. Actually, the seating was perfect. Benoit, our server was attentive, knowledgeable and I believe he actually read my OpenTable profile before we arrived. Impressed on all levels. We had cocktails and the main course with appetizers. The fries were made with care. Probably soaked the night before and cooked to absolute perfection. My main was a seafood bouillabaisse that was not your traditional leftover pulled together “stew” it was a 5 star, fresh ingredients bowl of heaven. For desert... as if Benoit knew it was one of my top five favourites, was a crime brûlée with cherries. Really didn’t need the calories, however the toppings had the hard layer that cracked with the third tap ... not sure words can describe the rush of childhood memories that came with every mouthful. All I can say is thank you. I will highly recommend and I will certainly be back.

I have been to Treadwell’s other locations on Queen Street and in St. Catharines. The food is amazing and the wine selection is top notch. It is amazing ambiance and the service is outstanding. I loved the view and vibe on the front patio. There was a breeze and it’s all shaded.

Use discretion with kids. We had a extremely quiet and well-behaved toddler with us and there was another quiet and well-behaved toddler there as well. They have high chairs. If your toddler or child is loud or antsy you will stick out as it is a quiet and relaxed environment. If that’s the case drop your babes at grandmas and enjoy a date night!! 😎

The food is amazing and well presented. Nice Patio setting. Great service and Chef gave me a treat for my birthday with their Strawberry shortcake on the house. Nice surprise.
Great selection on wine. Love my Riesling that pair with their selection of Charcuterie cheese.

Only flaw was I got a parking ticket so don’t forget to pay for street parking at the meter.

Went here for a late lunch and was very impressed. We were the only table there and had amazing service and food. We had tomato soup, mussels and salad for apps and would recommend them all. For mains two of us had lamb, which was a fall of the bone and so flavourful! One of us also had the spaghetti with an incredible ricotta cheese on top! Great experience, will definitely be back!

Restaurant was cold inside food and service were good but not up to the standard we have come to expect from Treadwell the decor led you to believe renovations were underway 12 tables ? Huge empty space? Not sure why? I would only recommend restaurants for light lunch dinner at Treadwell main location at this time
