Delectable confit de canard, on a bed of white bean and chorizo "cassoulet", topped with a fried egg. The confit de canard was deliciously rich, and the egg, while perfectly prepared, was unnecessary. The beet salad was well prepared, beautiful to look at, and very tasty. We asked for some bread, and they served us a warm, homemade poppyseed bread with olive oil and a reduction of baco noir vinegar. The reduction was divine, so sweet and tangy. Our server was outstanding. Friendly, nice and accommodating, as was the management. The chef prepared a portion of tagliatelle with butter and cheese for my small son, who didn't want the cassoulet as accompaniment to the duck. The restaurant is tastefully designed and chic. Thank you. We will come back.

We live in Niagara on the Lake and Treadwell is a "go-to" venue for us. This is where we have had our daughter's wedding catered from, our New Years, birthdays and other celebrations and also our casual nights out. Treadwell is ALWAYS a pleasure for us and this latest visit was no different. The menu, service and overall experience seem to always exceed our expectations.

Went for brunch, this was not our first visit, we love Sunday Brunch here. Food is always impeccable and the service is unobtrusive and efficient. They make the best coffee here, truly, the best coffee!
I had the eggs benedict with salmon, heavenly and my husband had the omlette with mushrooms and carmelized onions, also perfection!
Treat yourself for Brunch, lunch or dinner - you can't go wrong!

We drove 2.5 hours from the Finger Lakes region specifically to dine at Treadwell. Our high expectations were met and then some. We were early for our reservation but were seated without hesitation. Somehow we lucked out with the best server, Tara. She was easily able to answer all of our annoying questions and made us feel like we were the only patrons in the restaurant. We were concerned about ordering too much food and, at her suggestion, ended up with a perfect quantity. We were picky about our cocktails and, again, she was outstanding and accommodating.

In short, an outstanding meal, venue and experience. Thank you.

Quite simply the best food I've tasted in a long time. It was at a different level from any other restaurant meal I've had in recent memory. We sat at the counter and watched the kitchen at work, which we loved and would recommend highly. The service was friendly and gracious. Prices were comparable with other fine dining -- though, as I say, the food was far superior. Can't recommend highly enough.

Very little help with wine selection - sommelier (if it was one) didn’t have many answers. We ended up Googling for ourselves to find out sugar content, etc. Pickerel and salmon were not good at all, pasta just okay. Tables too close together. They did credit the pickerel which was nice (I only took a couple of bites).

Always an amazing experience that we look forward to, and the highlight of our trips to NOTL. From the professionalism of the staff to the encyclopedic knowledge of the sommeliers, and not to mention the outstanding food, nothing ever disappoints!

We dined at Treadwell on the Saturday of Valentines Day weekend and although it was extremely busy the restaurant still maintained personalized service, excellent food presentation and delicious food. The cost is a bit higher than what we normally spend but it was a special occasion and you may go a whole year without tasting food this good so we feel it’s worth it for a treat. If you are in Niagara On The Lake don’t miss this place if you’re looking for wonderful food and top notch service.

We regularly visit Treadwell, when we are in. oral for our anniversary. This year was our third anniversary, and as usual, the folks at Treadwell did not disappoint. The food was outstanding and the service and wine pairings were perfect. Thanks for continuing to fulfill our expectations!

An interesting menu where the food didn’t consistently deliver. For example both appetizers were good to very good but the lamb shoulder main course was so fat as to be almost inedible. The servers were knowledgeable and willing, but unable to provide seamless service because of the layout of the restaurant. I was somewhat disappointed but would also be prepared to try again.

An early Valentines dinner on Thursday Feb 13, we finally made it to the 'new' Treadwell' in NOTL, not having been for a visit since they left their old location in Port Dalhousie more than 7 years ago! We will be back again sooner...everything about the evening was fantastic - food, service by Benoit, atmosphere. It was a terrible stormy winter night and we were a touch late, but were warmly greeted, wonderfully fed with generous portions, and enjoyed our conversation with Benoit about his past and experiences since coming to NOTL from France many years ago.

Thank you for a great experience!

Great restaurant with a wonderful ambience and service. The food was delicious and the menu was amazing. Only issue I would say was that our food came a bit cold. That was disappointment but the food was delicious nevertheless.

Love coming here when we are in the area service and food always very good ! This time although food was good I felt the portions were small to the point you didn’t even get a chance to enjoy the food. In addition then the price point is pretty high for the experience .

Wonderful attentive service with an understanding about dietary restrictions and the meals were outstanding. We enjoyed the lobster sandwich, fish cakes, lamb and salmon dishes plus the butternut squash soup and fries to share. Each one had a unique flavour and were beautifully presented. 5 star all round.

This restaurant came well recommended, but they must have been having an off-night. The venison was way undercooked, and both of us left underwhelmed with the food and atmosphere.

Service was great, food was just awesome. I had the special, bacon wrapped venison on top of purple cabbage, mashed potato, with a red wine reduction - OMG! My partner had the beef cheeks, with broccoli etc., - Oh, we shared! And we both loved the other's dish. The staff was great. They were personable and attentive. Nice atmosphere and an overall wonderful dinner.
