The food at Treadwell was amazing! The only thing better than the food was the service! Our waiter, Andrew, was an absolute joy and made our experience wonderful. The in-house wine specialist was also extremely knowledgable and assisted us with choosing a bottle that we would not only love, but that would complement our meal. Overall, a truly amazing dining experience!

We decided to come here after our Bed & Breakfast host suggested it to us. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made us feel like VIP. They offered to take our jackets as we walked in, helped us celebrate with a complementary glass of champagne, and provided exceptional service from beginning to end. The food was fantastic with great local and in house made options. Great place for a great meal!

Treadwells is the dining experience in NOTL that should not be missed. Using exclusively locally farmed products, the menu provides but a hint of the exquisitely crafted dishes that this creative chef prepares right in front of you.

We sat at the counter (the best place to be) watching and talking to people who were watching, with great anticipation, the food preparations taking place. We discovered this hard-to-find restaurant last year, located right in the heart of Queen St. , but behind the main facade of buildings. We made certain that we would return this year.

My wife had a delicious platter featuring short ribs that melted off the bone, served with root vegetables prepared in consideration of her dietary restrictions. I had an unbelievable rutabaga soup with a appetizer-turned-main course of orecchiette with beef that was spicy and delicious. As we ate, we enjoyed speaking to other patrons who were as pleased as we were to be witnessing the scene that is Treadwells.

We will be back.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner starting with the hot apple cider on a very cold night.

The next night, we had dinner somewhere else but couldn’t stop thinking about the hot apple cider so we went back to Treadwell after dinner and finished the night with a hot apple cider and dessert.

Amazing food. Amazing staff.

The flavouring matches in the dishes is phenomenal. If you enjoy mushrooms you will nevr find a better representation of them than the sautéed mushroom appetizer. If you enjoy fish the Lake Huron pickerel with crispy skin on is outstanding. There is an extensive wine list made up mostly of hard to find local wines with a few international favourites. The staff know the food flavours and the wine very well and make great suggestions. They offer a very theatre aware environment. Excellent on all accounts!

I really enjoyed visiting Treadwell. The food and service was excellent, and the wine was also fantastic. I have several food allergies and they were able to easily accommodate this since everything is made in house. The food was fresh, and I appreciate that it is locally and sustainable sourced. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Would definitely recommend this place!

Excellent lunch for four last Friday at Treadwell's. The manager made superb wine recommendations from local wineries which enhanced our meals and our knowledge of Niagara producers. We sat at the grill and enjoyed watching the skilled chefs at work. Food, service, ambiance were all top-notch. This is a small restaurant, so best to book ahead. Well worth the trip to NOTL..one of our favourite dining spots in Old Town.

Excellent meal. Superb service. We sat at chef's table and enjoyed watching the cooking and plating process. Fortunately it was not too busy so he seemed happy to chat and answer our questions. I had Pickerel that was tasty as I've ever had. Not easy to do with s sometimes bland fish. My date had Cornish Hen juicy and tender.

Staff were above and beyond in terms of service and professionalism, made our girls weekend absolutely delightful.
My only suggestion would be clarity to the 18% gratuity noted on the menu. I was expecting it to appear as a line item on the bill, and about to supplement the tip. The gratuity was not itemized on the bill. When I asked about the gratuity our waiter indicated it was not included on the bill, just a little confusion there.
The experience as a whole was marvelous, we dined as you indicated Dec 8 and Dec 10 for brunch.

I have been here three times this year and will continue to frequent this fabulous restaurant. The food, the wine, and the staff are outstanding. I enjoy coming here as it is a wonderful dining experience. The short ribs are delicious and I also tried the chicken. Stratus Red is the best wine and it is a small lot that only they have now as you cannot buy it at the winery. Would highly recommend this restaurant - it is the best!

The best restaurant in Niagara on the Lake! You have the option of being seated in front of the cooks and watching them prepare your meal, which I recommend, or at a traditional table for a more intimate or romantic evening.

This was my second visit. I had a great experience the first time so I made sure to stop by when I was around. However, I was rather disappointed this time. We had scallops for appetizer that were good. I recommend it. Mussels were average. For the main course we ordered the grilled lamb. Meat was though and we had to return it to be cooked more as it was too raw. Definitely not worth the price and big disappointment. I'll give this restaurant another try when I'm in the area next time.

Saturday was a special chance for our group of 6 long time friends to get together. We drove to Niagara on the Lake and spent the night. While the entire weekend was incredible our dinner at Treadwell will long be remembered. The food, service and bar were all beyond our expectations. It was intimate and the staff was not only excellent, but engaging. One of us is gluten intolerant, and another was hoping for a specially warm cocktail which Micheala created especially for her...and the gluten free options were explained well and as thought they were no trouble. Our server Bernoit was tremendous...and the entire evening perfection!
