Very good contemporary dining in a town that tends to be a little traditional. Very nice atmosphere and service.

We had a wonderful experience at the restaurant eating on the patio with the exception of the slippery floors inside the restaurant. 2 of the guests at my table had a difficult time.
I had remembered this as a concern the last time we had come to enjoy a meal out.

We had a fabulous meal for a birthday celebration. The appetizers rivaled the entrees and the wine selection was a perfect accompaniment. Being able to have half glasses of other wines with desert made it more perfect. The service was impeccable and the timing was spot on. We will return the next time we are in the greater area. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation here.

Dinner was amazing. We were seating at the counter in front of the cooks. I highly recommend it, even on a date. The food was excellent, the wine followed the same line and we felt welcomed by our waiter. The cook even slid us two little cups of ice cream before our desert. I highly recommend this restaurant for any foodies looking for a top restaurant.

The best part of our whole experience at Treadwell was Sarah. Sarah is excellent at her job. Sarah was knowledgeable, considerate, funny and provided excellent customer service. The food at Treadwell is top quality, clean, fresh and well presented. I would recommend this restaurant for an upscale meal.

The tomatos and peach salad was extremely delicious. Who would have thought tomatoes, peaches and feta cheese went together. The halibut was incredible and cooked perfectly. It melted in your mouth!
Would highly recommend Treadwell for a dinner.

The food here has always been excellent for us, though definitely on the expensive side. Our most recent lunch for two consisting of beer battered whitefish and rosemary frites (fish and chips), braised beef rib & gnocchi, a glass of wine and a bottle of Pommies perry came to $76 with the tip. Of course the wine was a $19 six oz. pour of the outstanding, very hard to find Five Rows Sauvignon Blanc (which can otherwise only be found at the vineyard if one has the foresight to take advantage of their early reserve program). Reservations are definitely recommended, but if your party is small and you find yourself seated at the counter don't fret. Watching the food being prepared is good entertainment. In fact, we always try to procure counter seating.

We were surprised with a celebratory glass of sparkling wine and although we arrived late for our reservation we were welcomed by the staff with genuine smiles.

Celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary and we were treated phenomenally. Did the Chef’s table and were treated to a show. Food was incredible and the recommendation of wine was one of the best bottles we ever had. Loved every minute. Thank you Treadwell for a wonderful celebration evening.

We had a wonderful meal and wines, great ambiance and good service. My partner couldn't stop talking about how delicious the off-menu simple salad and vinaigrette was. Save room for dessert! Book ahead early.

This place was recommended to us by a few people. We were very pleased - excellent food, good service and great outdoor dining weather when we went. We have since recommended it to a couple who have already booked at the restaurant for September. The only small thing I would like changed - we found that the plates came quickly - from appetizers to main course - but not a point that would prevent us from going back.

This is my third time at Treadwell and it never disappoints. The food is excellent. It's local, expertly prepared and delicious. Unique flavours melded with the familiar. Their wine menu is extensive and they have so many wonderful Niagara options to choose from. Staff are attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. My only wish is that it was located closer to home.

The Treadwell was recommended by a Cleveland physician to his patient. We dined after the theatre and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Our dinners were delicious and beautifully presented.

Excellent between-shows venue for a great dinner. Service was far too fast, but once we had a word, it was quickly adjusted to what we wanted. All courses were original and well presented, especially the heirloom tomato and peach salad.

We live in Rochester NY. Always make it a point to dine at this restaurant when visiting. Brought family visiting from Miami, FL. Overall we enjoyed ourselves. The one disappointment was the beef tartare. It was extremely fatty. I've never prior to this moment had a bad dish. My aunt and i were supposed to share and neither one of us could it, nor did anyone else in the table like it. I have ordered this type of dish plenty of times. Also, my cousin who has no problem with fatty meat didn't finish his rib portion for it consisted of a high percentage of fat he couldn't chew on. It looked like at least half the amount. With that being said, he absolutely loved the flavors. We had only mentioned to the waitress the issue with the appetizer which she never came back to say anything. I love your restaurant and will give it another try since this was truly the first time we ever had an issue.

Wow! We have travelled extensively and tried many local best restaurants, but were blown away by the quality of our meals! The flavour combinations in our appetizers and main dishes were amazing. The wine they suggested was excellent and dessert was light and fresh. The couple beside us were visiting from Philadelphia and agreed it was one of the best meals they had ever had.

We had one of the best meals we've had in a long while at Treadwell during a late lunch on our arrival in Niagara on the Lake. The food was fresh, creative and delicious. The sommelier was especially excellent giving us great advice on wine pairings with our meal and offering a glass not on the menu that he felt would work well for us. It was one we had enjoyed on a trip to another part of Canada and can not get in the US and we were delighted to try it once again. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Everyone around us seemed equally pleased with the dishes they were getting!

Good food, no doubt about it
I have been going to this restaurant since they opened, the quality and the price have been the same, the only 2 things that changed is the service getting worse and the amount of food is getting less and less on the dish

Treadwell is my favourite dining spot in NOTL. On this occasion, we arrived as a group of 4 plant based eaters (vegan) and the chef was able to accommodate us with two unique entrees and 2 starters to choose from. The ambiance is energetic, yet allowing for intimate conversation. The service is professional, prompt and welcoming. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor seating (perfect for balmy summer nights), allowing one to take in the charm of Old Town NOTL while enjoying fine dining.

Wonderful staff, except for the hostess. We have had a reservation for months. When we asked for the table by the outside waterfall, we were told it was reserved. Later in comes a couple with a dog. They were seated at a couch type table by a fire pit, and then moved to the table we requested, with their dog. Otherwise great meal, our waiter was great.

This was our third visit to Treadwell's. We brought family from out-of-town. We ate outside on the patio - which we had not done before because we always came when it was cooler. The Niagara-on-the-Lake area is so beautiful and this restaurant is quite the treat. The food is phenomenal and the service impeccable. We would definitely recommend it for a special occasion as it is a bit pricey.
