This was one of the best meals I have had in my life. I started with the scallops and pork belly and my wife the beet salad. Both were amazing. They had halibut on special over mushrooms and it was one of the best dishes I have ever had. The sommelier gave us a good pairing and the waiter explained everything he gave us in great detail. Even the sommelier was serving food to other tables and was as knowledgeable as the waiter was in his explanations. I rarely write reviews but this place deserves it. It was outstanding. The cranberry tart for desert was very good as well as the finishing cheese plate. I want them to come down to the states and bring me duck prosciutto!

Our party of four, with a 5:00 Sunday evening reservation, had a marvellous time! The service, ambience, presentation, and food were first-rate. The recommended wine was a terrific pairing with the meal we all selected. I imagine this place can get quite noisy when full (as our server told us it sometimes does); but as we had the place virtually to ourselves for the bulk of our meal, the ambient noise was quite low and we had no trouble conversing even though two in our party were doing so in a non-native tongue. The potential for high noise levels notwithstanding, I VERY HEARTILY recommend this place as a dining option in Niagara-on-the-Lake!

Very good restaurant with a pretentious menu that is executed to perfection.
Service is good but not great.
Ambiance is romantic, with dim lights and a relaxing decor.

Recommended.

The food and service were outstanding, but you definitely pay for being in NOLA. Good deal on corkage fee - and you get to bring your own wine.

Beef short rib was the highlight.

At first was a little put off because the only seating availability was counter service, but seeing the chefs “in action” cooking right in front of you actually added to the overall experience and enhanced the entertainment value. Service was outstanding, food was outstanding. Top notch all the way. Waiter was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, gave great recommendations. Chefs would even check on you from time to time as well. Will definitely return.

The experience was great. Food was delicious and wine was perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves. The waiter was great but, if I dare to say, a little too loud and wordy. If he was talking to the table next to us we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. And he continually asked questions and made comments. I really liked him so I’m not being rude but maybe let us have a conversation together. We enjoyed him but would’ve been happy with a little less attention

My husband and I have been to Treadwell at least a dozen times before and loved each meal. On Saturday we were very disappointed in our meal, the time it took between our appetizer and entrée -- it must have been 40 minutes before our entrée came and it was warm. We were very disappointed. Time to find a "new" favorite spot... Too bad

Excellent food and service. If you have an opportunity to sit at the “chef’s table” (counter overlooking the kitchen) I would strongly recommend that experience.

This was our second time for dinner, the first visit was great. We loved it. This time unfortunately on Valentine’s Day was not good. The restaurant wasnt even half full and service was slow. To start a couple ladies came in with a loud screaming child, and later we noticed they had a purse dog with them in the dinning room! Dogs are not allowed in restaurants and I spoke to the server and nothing was said to them or done about it! I ordered the confit lamb, the presentation was not good, it had fallen apart probably because it was dry. As I ate it I found I had the animals stamp from the farm also on a large part of my meat. I questioned the server and the cook about the brightly coloured teal ink on my lamb. It was passed off as normal like I should just eat it... would you eat a tattoo?? The Brussels sprouts were underdone and hard as well. It’s disappointing when you drop $300 on a meal for a special evening at a nice restaurant and this happens.

All the kitchen staff appeared new since the last time we were here; and looks like their old chef Matt is no longer there which is too bad. The food was not as good as before. I got the striploin steak off their new winter 2019 menu but it was tough and definitely not worth $46. Salad and dessert were good.

We always love coming back for lunch or dinner at Treadwell for 3 reasons. 1. The food is fresh and delicious, 2. It's a cozy and clean place, 3. Service- the people are all so friendly and are their to please and make sure that all is well. Now for our meal Our favourite app are the mussels in a white cream sauce. It's to die for. For our main, I love the Lobster sandwich. This time my wife ordered the same but on a gluten free bread. I had mine with the soup of the day and she had hers with a salad. The wine list in this place is vast. I ordered a glass of Pearl Morrisette white to go with my meal. Now for dessert we had a creme brûlée with a blackberry compote topping, it was awesome! Thank you Sarah for impeccable service with a smile and thank you James-the sommelier- for explaining the wine, and above all thank you James T. for the dessert and as always the wonderful service you and your team at the restaurant provide to all your customers.

We think this is one of the best restaurants in the area. I love the lobster club on duck fat fried bread. It's rich but worth it. My wife always has 2 appetizers. This time it was the daily soup and the beet salad. We plan to dine here again on our next visit to the area.

Treadwell is always a spot we enjoy when my sweetheart and I come to NOTL to visit the family. This time I had brought my two best gals to enjoy, and our dinner did not disappoint. The wine program is excellent and we had a great bottle of white recommended to us to start the meal, and then had a lovely glass of red reminded to us to enjoy the meal - both wines were terrific and new to us. We ordered the app and main specials and they were even better than described, and came to the table looking beautiful. Service was attentive and engaging, and the chef was kind enough to oblige our request to come over and chat (so we could thank him personally and compliment his talented team). Rounded out the meal with desserts and while my girlfriends enjoyed their Creme brûlée with berries and blondie tart respectively, my sticky toffee pudding was the hands down favourite. Not only did we love the experience, my one friend who has a gluten allergy found the restaurant inclusive (BETTER and BEYOND ‘accommodating’) of her dietary challenges (worthy to note that I’ve also had similar comments from my vegetarian friends about their inclusiveness). Love it there and always excited to return.
