It was easily 35C with the humidity and the ac was either not ok or so low it made no difference. They also said there were no tables only counter but there were plenty of open tables not near the hot counter. Food was ok, beef could have been better seasoned and more tender. Everything else was over seasoned. Meh.

Treadwell delivers every time - when we finished our meal, my husband was already talking about how he couldn’t wait until we dined there again!

This was our first time at this restaurant and maybe I was expecting too much. We did enjoy our evening but it didn't blow my socks off. I will definitely go back but with different expectations.

Food, excellent from taste to presentation. Our waiter was exceptional. The host/greeter, won’t call a Maitre’ D, had a snobbish attitude!which had a resonating negative effect on the evening enjoyment.

Cuisine was excellent, nice, quiet atmosphere. Wait staff was very attentive.

Our lunch took over an hour to arrive, while other tables came, were served and left.

My halibut was outstanding! I tried Treadwell again because several days earlier I had quite a different experience. The meals were both fantastic, however the first time, it took 1 1/2 hours to get the entre, which was strange considering the restaurant was not full. 2nd time, my reservation was for 6p, I showed up at 5:45 and was cheerfully taken to my outdoor table. There was no green salad listed on the menu but they made me a beautiful one, no issues. I'm happy I returned for a 2nd try.

It was our last night in NOTL and our hosts at Rye Park Manor recommended Treadwell. We loved it. The scallops and pork belly, duck, pork loin and creme brûlée were all delicious. Sat at the chef bar, the team cooking were engaging and cool. Service was great. We’ll be back.

Our Waitress was great. Pleasant, professional and receptive. The food was outstanding. The timing of drinks to starters to meal to dessert was perfect. We will definitely make another visit in the future and we would recommend the restaurant and overall experience to everyone.

The only criticism. We requested outside seating when we arrived. We advised even if we waited nothing would be available. We were a party of two. Approximately 25 minutes after our arrival a group of 6 ladies arrived. They were to be sat next to us. One of the ladies said “oh no” this won’t do. We are sitting outside. My fiancé and I looked at each other thinking that won’t happen. Well wouldn’t you know about 5 minutes later 6 women were moved to an outside table. This is after we were told by the young man at the reception desk we could not be accommodated. If your going to deny someone something as basic as seating. You may not want to have the group next to the people you denied get the very thing you told us no too.

As I said while that was an inappropriate way of handling your customers. The lack of respect upon entry was more then made up for by the remaining staff, the dining experience and the food served.

Respectfully,
Gregg Evans.

Came for a late Saturday lunch and had the beet salad, Atlantic salmon, and lobster sandwich for lunch, plus a side of their fresh cut fries and a couple of local draft beers. All were amazing! Our server was super friendly and made us feel comfortable and welcome. Will definitely come back again!

Our party of 6 was excited about having dinner at this restaurant, however, we were disappointed. Next to my chair was a " Caution Wet Floor" sign (at this Michelin rated restaurant!) We decided by the end of our visit that the food and the price was highly overrated.

Casual yet elegant destination. Staff were exceptional and the pace was perfectly timed for an outdoor summer evening. Our meals were delicious and more than adequately sized. As usual my husband finished mine but I left room for a bit of the creme brûlée we shared. We loved that the back of the menu lists the local suppliers too! The Kew Vineyards sparking wine was spectacular.
Only issue is that I thought the actual outdoor tables were ...lacklustre. I feel they could spruce up the area with some shimmering very very small lights so it would seem like a romantic summer lit evening sky.

Mussels were outstanding as my starter but definitely one that needs to be shared as the portion is large.
The main dishes appeal to a variety of palettes.
Patio is beautiful.

Quality of food was outstanding.
Service was good.

View was to be desired, given the location in an ally with construction all around.
Prices seemed high.
Would be good to provide starter bread to guests. When we asked for bread we were told the kitchen does not stock any bread. We found this surprising since there is a bakery owned by the hotel directly across the ally.

We recently ate at Treadwell's. It was fantastic. We each had an appetizer, main and dessert. Every bite was delicious. The scallops were done perfectly as were the halibut steak, pork loin and all the sides included. We sat at the counter and watched and spoke with the chefs which made it harder to decide what to order as we were able to see all the meals leaving the kitchen. The strawberries were in season so we had the strawberry dessert. Delicious! All local, all wonderful.

Service was phenomenal with staff actually reading my profile that indicates that I don't eat red meat and making great suggestions. All the staff assist with serving when the chef calls out that a meal is ready so that everything arrives at the appropriate temperature. The food is phenomenal with a rich, fresh taste to each dish. I would have liked a better table that was not right next to the door leading out to the bathroom which is why I gave 4 stars for ambience. We will definitely make the trip across the border at least once we season to experience the seasonal freshness. Well worth the drive from Buffalo!

Do yourself a favour and reserve a seat at the bar overlooking the kitchen. Despite being incredibly busy, the kitchen staff are wonderful - charming, intelligent, and they LOVE what they create. You learn so much sitting there. An absolute delight.

The service was terrible though the food was excellent. Sommelier was not good- he made suggestions then went to the bar to make drinks!!!

We had to ask three times for him to came back to see how we liked his suggestions. Additionally, once we sat down, it took over 10 minutes for somebody to come to ask for a drink orders.

Food was stellar!

Treadwell never disappoints! We sat at the counter for the first time and have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. Experiencing the coordination and expertise that the talented staff put forth to make every dish look and taste superb was absolutely awe-inspiring and we even walked away with a few fantastic professional culinary tips as well. Treadwell makes every visit an occasion!!
