My wife and I needed a night away to relax and unwind. We stayed at The Prince of Wales and the Gate House was only a five minute walk. After eating at the Gate House I would gladly walk 50 minutes for dinner. Great atmosphere and service.
Highly recommend the Gate House for a dinner destination.
Thank you.

The Gate House is ideally located on the main street in NOTL. Had an unhurried lunch which capped off an earlier wine tasting just right.

We were delighted to discover that fine dining is alive and well during the pandemic. Excellent food and service. Superb soup and beet salad, fine halibut and chicken entrees and the birthday creme brulee for my partner was much appreciated.

Our second visit and everything was nice as the first. Food was flavorful. Service was attentive. But the bathrooms could have been better considering the coronavirus protocols.

Food was very flavourful, servings were generous and service was impeccable. Steak was overdone but they were extremely apologetic and gave us a dessert ..... Sticky Toffee pudding, which was beyond delicious. We really appreciated the gesture and will definitely be back.

Although the menu was somewhat limited, the food was excellent as was the service. The ambience was just a little bleak, largely due to the tables being widely spaced and no table decoration - all due, I suspect, to Covid-19 protocols

This is one of those times when the serving staff can make all the difference in the world. Our server didn’t seem very genuine when he welcomed us. And then after he took our order, never asked how the food was, never asked if we wanted another drink (we did) and we suddenly couldn’t wait to leave. The food was probably fine but when you aren’t treated as guests you want to have return, you can’t wait to get away.

On the whole was disappointed with the food we were served.

The peach and goat cheese salad while visually stunning was a let down due to the peaches being hard and therefore having little flavour. Not acceptable really as we are in prime peach time and they are wonderful and juicy. The quiche and simple salad looked lovely, was very light but was flavourless due to having little to no seasoning in either the filling or the pastry. The rosemary sea salt fries were very nice but this shouldnt be the highlight at such a well known restaurant.. Thank goodness the meal was saved by the blackberry pane cotta which was excellent!

Dining at The Gate House (Dinner experience of Treadwell due to the COVID19 pancemic) was near perfect. The service, food and wine was perfect. It was somewhat noisy because we were seated outside. The overall experience is pricey, but worth the money.

FABULOUS lunch on the patio to celebrate a friends birthday on the beautiful terrace. Lovely atmosphere and menu offerings was good. Bouillabaisse perfectly balanced flavours and seafood properly done and not overcooked. Mussels with cream chilli sauce, great sauce. Did not disappoint and recommend for any

We had the best experience The Gate House. The service was exceptional!! The waitress went out of her way to celebrate my dad and my birthday by bringing a dessert (on the house) with two candles. It was just so thoughtful - especially since we both didn't get to celebrate given the Pandemic. They were also very kind in accommodating my vegetarian parents. We hadn't been out for dinner together since 2019...and this place made it so special and so worth the wait and drive from downtown Toronto! Thank you guys sooo much! xoxo
