Great food, sat at the counter and watched everything get cooked/prepped which helped our decision making.

Ate at chef's table (bar). Incredible experience. Food could not have been better. Corn & peaches just in season. If we return to Niagara on the Lake it will be to eat at Treadwell's.

WE liked the food and environment so much at dinner, that we went back for lunch the next day. Ate on the patio both times as weather was beautiful and 71 degrees F.

Sat at chef table. Love seeing the chef team having fun "oui".
Super awesome experience.
Gnocchi was to die for.

As always, wonderful service and wonderful cuisine. Shrimp & pork belly for the app - short ribs for the entree. Both were excellent. Not to forget, excellent wine recommendations as well.

This was one of THE best restaurants we have ever been to!
A must is to sit at the kitchen bar where you are watching the chefs hard at work...it was like live entertainment as we drooled over all the different dishes that were being prepared.
We had the gnocchi as an appetizer (deeeelicious) followed by the pork and beef meals that were mouth watering. The portions were just right and the presentation was on point. Instead of dessert we had the fries which was pared with a sparking-who would have thought!? Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!

The mushroom gnocchi is TO DIE FOR! We shared it, but easily both could have had our own and double the flavor! Also, highly recommend the creamy onion soup. My hubs doesn't love onions, but loved this soup. I couldn't decide between the halibut and the char, so we got them both. Hands-down, the halibut was the better of the two dishes. With 2 starters, 3 entrees (hubby got the beef/mushroom- more delicious mushrooms, hurrah!) and 2 glasses of wine total, bill was around $200. We recommend this restaurant for people who really love well prepared food, with wine pairings. Service was EXCEPTIONAL. Give yourself time to park and browse the nearby shops before or after dinner. Give it a try!

My wife and I had lunch on the patio, along with our dog, Sam. My cheeseburger and fries were very good and my wife’s salmon was just right. Our server was very congenial and took excellent care of Sam’s needs too.

We had a disappointing evening dinner. The reviews were good so we came to eat early by 5:30. Instead of being seated outside on a nice day which we wanted, they seated us right near the kitchen in a hot and noisy spot. The food was decent but the noise and atmosphere made for a not-so-good dinner.

In general: Waitress was kind and friendly. Restaurant environment was pleasant. Incorrect order was served, and foods on the same plate were completely different temperatures (clearly not a deliberate choice).

For vegans: Before booking a reservation, I checked to see if there were any vegan options available. The menu online said that there was a separate vegan menu, so I booked. However, there was only one option-- an incredibly small serving of a bland sunflower seed salad. We left hungry.

the service was great. The food also tasted great. The only negative thing I have to say, is my boyfriend and I shared the scallops for an appetizer. Later in the evening him and I were quite sick. The sickness hit us at the same time, and the only thing we can trace back to us feeling like that would be our the scallops (as we both shared the dish).

Fabulous dinner at Treadwell's. I had the Arctic char W small lobster claws meat and my husband had the pork tenderloin, both were out of this world. We had a bottle of California Chardonnay, Poseidon and it was perfect with our meals. Desserts were excellent as well. Service was excellent and we did not feel rushed at all. We ate out on the patio and it was a perfect summer's evening. Thank you Treadwell for making our Anniversary dinner perfect.

The food was excellent. PEI mussels were outstanding and this was an appetizer that my husband and I shared and it was still too much food. Followed by their outstanding lobster club and again, the amount of food was way too much. This restaurant needs to serve smaller portions because too much food is wasted.

Fabulous! I’ve dined here many times and it is always an incredible experience. My lunch was the vegetarian option of homemade gnocchi with fresh mushrooms and it was delicious.

The food was very very good. I had a huge meal with my bf. two appetizers 2 meals and drinks .. the bill came out to 234 However I wish when I asked for a bread to mop up my tomato salad the waitress said she would bring some out .. she ended up charging me for the bread that they make in-house. She never ended up telling before she brought out the bread that their going to be a charge for it. This whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth.. these little experiences make it or break it for me and if I’m going to recommend the place to anyone or come back . Theirs a lot of farm to table restaurants out there that I can choose..

Our farm to table food was delicious. But we waited 45 minutes for any drinks or food on a Tuesday night. Finally had to ask the manager for our drinks. Which she made herself and comped us. Won’t go back. Can only think what it’s like when it’s really busy.

Food was terrific. Server was wonderful, but it was ridiculously slow, and not for any good reason. We would order wine and it wouldn’t come till the next course. Our waitress kept pouring our wine and apologizing that the sommelier was too busy. I got a charcuterie plate that was outstanding, $26 but easily three times larger than any other charcuterie plate I’ve ever seen. There was an extremely long wait for our main course, I had chicken which was very good, my wife had steak which was also very good, I’m not a steak eater but there was a big band of gristle through it that was a little tough to navigate around. Flavor wise it was excellent.
We did not have dessert or coffee. Very nice ambience, we ate inside on an otherwise pleasant night and could’ve eaten outside on their fairly sizable patio. I’m glad we ate there, and the food was very good, but it fell short of excellent on a number of counts.Total bill with tip, US was about 170, not unreasonable for a place like this, but it lacked service or a wow factor that would justify this. And the service had nothing to do with our otherwise excellent waitress.

We had a reservation & they did not actually reserve a table for us so we were stuck in the back & the kitchen & the bar were slow. Food was ok though
