We made the reservation based on OpenTable description. The menu is very limited (be sure check it prior to booking and the day before you arrive. It changes). Service was very slow. Took over an hour to get our food. While taste was good, it was not worth the price. Better meals within walking distance.

Amazing food and great service. We had the short ribs and pickerling. Both were delicious. We were there celebrating my husband’s birthday and ordered the fig cheesecake - it was amazing and they comped the dessert since we were celebrating a birthday. Great place and would definitely recommend!

We went to NOTL for our anniversary weekend. Treadwell promised to provide a vegan option for me so I asked them to surprise me. When we arrived we received complimentary sparkling wine to toast our anniversary. The chef made me a vegan appetizer and entree, I was delighted! Everything was delicious and the people working there were incredibly kind and accommodating. We sat outside, it was enclosed and they had heaters and cozy blankets. It was a great meal and we will be back again!

Treadwell’s features superb preparation and presentation of a limited number of starters and entrees. Chef’s counter provides an opportunity to interact with the kitchen as meals are prepared and plated. An Outstanding Ontario wine list complements the local sourced menu. Service is attentive but not overbearing. It is a true culinary experience.

This wasn't our first dining experience at Treadwells and it most certainly won't be the last. I have to say it is a place I really look forward to dining at. The food is amazing, so much care is put into the flavors and presentation. The service was amazing and made the experience that much nicer. Our server Michael was absolutely one of the best we've ever had! Thanks again for your commitment to quality!

Had not been in a over 7 months. Very disappointed in the food. Two people had the pork and one was cold. The arctic char smelled fishy as soon as it arrived at the table. All the dishes were so so. Would have complained at the moment but guests were visiting from out of town and didn't want to spoil the special occasion.

The atmosphere and service were awesome! The restaurant offered us a glass of bubble wine for our anniversary. Although the appetizer was really good (pork belly was amazing, melts in your mouth), the main felt flat as the steak was a loop warm went served to table and the lobster roll felt unbalanced. Everything in the lobster roll are great but the integrity of the lobster got lost while combined together with bacon and duck fat fried bread. I deconstructed the sandwich and then I can taste the lobster. The duck fat bread and bacon were too bold for the lobster salad in the roll. Overall, the food was fresh and we enjoy our lunch.

We’ve eaten here once a year since they opened, as we go to NOTL for our anniversary each year. We’ve always loved the food. Service is great. The noise level varies depending on which section of the restaurant you’re seated in. We’ve eaten on the patio (enclosed with heaters), in the bar area, and in the newly opened front section, which is the quietest. Highly recommend Treadwells.

The food was very good although I had asked for my pork tenderloin to be well done & it came back not so. Half of the portions were pink & I therefore didn't finish eating them. I also didn't feel it was good value for what we received. We had asked to change to the patio & were told it was full however when we left the restaurant the patio still had a number of seats open. I would recommend you accommodate the guest to the best of your ability when possible. I was recommended to try this venue & didn't know what to expect & was somewhat pleased with my choice but did not leave with a feeling to want to return after my experience which is not what you want your guests to leave with. I feel my experience would have been a better experience had my dinner been prepared how I asked & were able to sit where we had asked to be sitted. This may all seem trivial but when people are experiencing this restaurant for the first time, it's a better experience when they are accommodated & their meal lives up to their expectation.

We sat down in front of the kitchen. We noticed some flies that were attracted to the bread for the sandwiches for lunch. There were no fans to force the flies from the area. I will note that the rest of the kitchen did not have insects around. We had gnocchi and fish for lunch. We found that the fish and the short rib were under seasoned. The salads that we had (beet salad as appetizer and the potato salad accompanying the fish) were excellent. We were a bit disappointed with our meal.

This was my second lunch @ their kitchen counter. My 1st experience had been awesome. I celebrated my 70th birthday there in March - the staff made me feel special, very welcome & sent me home with a signed menu. This second time was a quieter & quicker experience but the food was just as amazing.

We chose Tredwell for our Anniversary dinner and are so thankful that we did. The hostess greeted us with a congratulations and that was soon followed by a complimentary toast with some local sparkling wine. The food choices were amazing and a sommelier helped pick a perfect wine to compliment it all. We were on the patio which was made perfect by open fire heaters. I just can’t say enough good things about the dinner experience and we would absolutely recommend this to a friend.

Butternut squash soup and Prosciutto salad were very good. The track lighting was too bright and took away from the ambiance. The tables were also so close that our conversation was interrupted each time the waiter arrived at the next table.

We had waited too late to get a reservation for evening dining, so went here for lunch. It is just as wonderful as everyone has said. Every aspect of the dining experience was fantastic. We sat on the covered porch. The heater was the perfect temperature to keep us comfortable and enjoy the outdoor ambiance. Great work, Treadwell!
