First time I have given less than 5 stars to Treadwell. The food was well up to its customary standard but the restaurant lacked it usual homey atmosphere; maybe there were too few customers, it was a Monday in late November after all. This may also have accounted for the slow service. Our drinks order took nearly 15 minutes and we had to wait for the courses. Most unlike Treadwell.

Hopefully better next time :)

Definitely recommend Treadwell as a dinning experience to my friends and family.
The chef's table was a great way to interact with the chef's and watch our food being prepared.

Absolutely delicious. I am thrilled that such high quality and ethically sourced dining options like Treadwell are available, and so incredibly flavourful. Will return.

We have already recommended this restaurant to others. Very interesting menu. Friendly staff. Knowledgeable sommelier. Great service. The pork belly & scallop appetizer was so memorable , and our mains... Artic Char , and duck breast were perfect, served hot! We had to finish with Treacle pudding after watching everyone else in the restaurant rave over it.

2nd visit and absolutely wonderful. Great service - name forgotten due to quality of wine - but had a Parisian accent. Sommelier was terrific too. The short ribs were delicious. Will return.

I have been to Treadwell Farm-to-Table Cuisine several times before. It is always a favourite when in NOTL. This trip, my 13 yr old daughter and I were staying within walking distance of the restaurant and made reservations for dinner on Monday evening at 6 pm. From start to finish, our experience was exceptional. The service was outstanding and I enjoyed the wine recommendation from the Sommelier. The food was delicious, well presented, and every bite was a treat. My daughter has always been blessed with a sophisticated palate; it was wonderful for her to be treated respectfully and not as a child. We both enjoyed the entire experience. Thank you to the Chef and staff at Treadwell for this wonderful meal on our mini vacation in NOTL.

Overall we had a good experience - service was very personable and efficient, and food was good.

Food preference: I come from a culture where soup is served hot, so having warm soup was surprising. Also, the frites we had was overly salty!

There are other food options we'd like to try, and would go back.

Very good- we sat at counter.
Fun conversing with chefs, however, a few of the chefs left and only one washed their hands when returning to prepare food with bare hands. This was disconcerting to me as a diner.
Also, we had to try to get attention of bartender for more drinks.
The food was very good... would have liked it warmer.
Just thought you wanted a fair assessment.
Thank you and we will be back!

Benoit was unbelievable when it came to our server. The main issue really was the value you received. The food was very good but portions a bit small. Also $29 for a 6pz glass of wine that goes for $50 a bottle seemed like a bit much.

We live in Toronto and have found it very worthwhile to drive down to Treadwells for many years, since they had the original location in Port Dalhousie. It is as close to a perfect restaurant as you can get. Food locally sourced, staff has encyclopaedic knowledge of wines, service is great. And it's on the main drag in Niagara on the Lake. I don't think there is a better restaurant in the area.

The service was very slow. It took 40 minutes to get our wine. Then the appetizer course came seconds later. No one poured our wine. The scallop app was good but the tuna a little bland.
The best main was the braised lamb.
Underwhelming. Wouldn’t go back.

The wine list is very nice but expensive. I don’t like when the restaurant charge twice the price of the winery. I don’t feel I had enough for my money.

We come here every time we are in Niagara-on-The-Lake. It’s cosy and warm and the dishes are always creative delicious and healthy. The wine list has an excellent selection and the servers are well versed on the specials the ingredients and wine paring. Any requests I’ve made for my dairy allergy has never been an issue. It’s always the highlight of our trip. Thank you !!

Excellent service. Pleasant setting. Food was not as exciting as I’ve had in the past. Gnocchi was a bit bland and brussels sprouts were not particularly distinctive.

We visited Treadwell during our girls weekend! Super excited because reviews were great and my friend’s who visited also loved the resto. Service was great! Ambience lovely! We started with the charcuterie board and it did not disappoint! We all ordered burger with frites! The burger was very well done! And I prefer my burger on the pinker side! It was very hard to chew! I didn’t enjoy it at all! But I will say my girlfriend’s liked it! The frites were great!! I would come back to try other things on the menu because so many other positives!

We were very excited to have dinner at Treadwell. The restaurant was recommended by a friend and also has great reviews online. The ambiance was quite lovely and so were the local wines. However, the waitress was extremely buy and thus not attentive. Importantly, the food was below expectation: the flavors and presentation were not as refined as one may expect given the restaurant's reputation and price class. The quality was mediocre at best. Not recommended.
