Delicious food! Went there for brunch on Sunday. This upscale place has seasonal fare, regional wine, and farm to table menu. They list all their local farms and suppliers on the back of the menu. Friendly staff and amazing service. Highly recommended!

My wife & I had dinner here last weekend. Service was excellent. They have multiple sommelier's who offered good advice for pairings. You can buy 3 or 6 oz pours, which is nice to try a variety of wines. We ordered the Scallops and cauliflower appetizer, which was excellent. Ordered the rainbow trout, also excellent, and the Halibut, which was a bit plain in comparison to everything else, but still very good! We would go back again! Only negative was getting the check took a long time. Not sure why.

We are sad to say that we won't be going back to Treadwell. Food was served within five minutes of being ordered and both fish and meat dishes were cold and unpleasant. Service was rushed. Overheard next table being told that it was impossible to order anything that would suit a calorie-conscious diner as everything is cooked in loads of butter (they left). What has happened?

Went for dinner with my fiancé for a date night. We had a patio seat and the evening was getting a little chilly. They turned on the patio fireplaces and it was absolutely perfect. Great atmosphere to sit and talk, have great wine and great food with the people in your life. Service was just as spectacular as the food. Worth every penny. I'd come back with my fiancé, friends, or family!

We had a very tasty lunch at Treadwell while visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Shaw Festival Mythos trilogy. The selection of wines from small local vineyards was well chosen. The ambience on the patio was lovely. We’ll be back soon!

This was probably one of the best meals I have ever had and we do enjoy dining out at very nice restaurants. The levels of flavour in the roasted red pepper soup were complex yet simple and the short ribs were to die for. My wife had the scallops and the fries and were also outstanding!! Best restaurant in NOTL I would say!

My daughter and I had a lovely day in NOTL. We chose to have our lunch at Treadwell's and we were not disappointed . We shared the scallop appie and then the club sandwich. They were kind to divide both plates for us. Would highly recommend Treadwell's.

having gone to restaurants all around the world, we would rate Treadwell one of the tops. Went there for lunch. The lobster/bacon/goat cheese club was a true find. The gnochi was superb.

The food and service was outstanding as usual. Treadwell has become the go to restaurant for my wife and I for special occasions. The servers are always attentive and pleasant. The only complaint I have is to the mark up on the wines. I feel that it was a very aggressive mark up, which I realize is generally the norm for high end restaurants but I still find it frustrating. I found the same wine at a different restaurant for $39 less and that still left a healthy profit margin for the restaurant.

We were a party of 2 and were first seated at a table next to the entry door on patio, before sitting down we asked if we could sit at the adjoining empty table, with a huff from the hostess she reluctantly sat us there( the other table remained empty through our 2 hour lunch). The server was prompt and told us what was not on the menu.. PEI mussels which I had planned to order and anothe menu item was being prepared differently.
Ordered a drink and wine, the wine steward wa prompt and knowledgeable. Appetizers were ordered, soup and scallops. I asked for bread with soup. Server came back a few minutes later and asked what did you want? I stated bread. It never arrived... then took 1/2 an hour - 45 min to be served entry after first course. In all, a two hour lunch... while we sat and looked across the patio to their bakery... I should have walked there to get the bread!
Disappointing $150.00 lunch last Sunday.

PS. the restaurant was at 50% capacity.

This was our second time visiting for lunch and this time we were quite disappointed with the service.

Upon walking in, I felt it was a bit chaotic... employees and patrons were walking between the bar and tables. Employees were pushing through the patrons instead of making way for them. I understand it was the lunch time rush and the location of where the bar/side entrance isn't ideal but I noticed this happened on several occasions in the restaurant and not just in that area.

Red wine my husband requested was poured in his glass like it was champagne ... there were so many bubbles, wine was splattering on side of glass as it was being poured and there was cork in it. We both ordered glasses and we had consumed most of it about half way through our mains and usually an attentive server would ask if we needed a top up, but we had to request it. Our service was friendly but we felt just it wasn't attentive.

For our mains and desserts, our cutlery didn't come until after our meal, and at which took longer than usual. We were brought a dessert menu but it took our server about 20 minutes to come back to take our order. The food was fair but not for price point. I had the gnocchi and was supposed to have a pork ragu but they had to change it to but had to change it to beef with asparagus, I found it lacked flavour and was a bit sour.

We had an app, two mains, a dessert and 2 glasses of wine each at lunch. Our bill came to approx $200.

The food was very, very good. We did not have appetizers, but entrees were very good. The desserts were not “typical” and we loved them. Fun to have something different. The entrees took a while to arrive, which was the only real issue at all. And there was a somewhat loud group next to us, but that wasn’t a problem.

The location is nice, washrooms clean and that would be the best things I can say.

It's a busy place and Friday night it was humming. So loud, because the open kitchen is right there inside the resto, along one wall, such that conversation was impossible. Especially for seniors with hearing aids. The open kitchen was insidious into the resto, making the smells linger far too long. With younger customers at a high level of gaiety, it helped raise the sound decibels. An 'a la Gordon Ramsey' head chef made the loud noises intolerable. Better to go see a ramsey show than listen here.

For NotL, prices are not out of line, but it's poor value. Dinner early at 6pm with only one course and a glass of wine would set you back $80 pp. Drinks extravagantly priced, average entree, $40 before tax and service.

Now to the food. For the price and considering it was NotL, portions were good, duck was rosy, but they forgot the crispy confit. They do not serve bread at all, so you have to order fries, which is a reasonable and good looking portion. But extra $. The pork with crispy skin was rather tasty. The wines, ridiculously priced.

Service was ok, attentive, but not overwhelming. Need to ask for the sommelier if you really need to ask about the wine and not sure he really is any good. But at these prices, maybe he should be.

Outside was also pretty crowded by 7pm, so ambiance may be better outside on a cool calm day.

Farm to table is just another excuse to charge high prices, so the value here is relatively good. (Very ramsey esque in design, except for the booze pricing.).

Manager was very keen, but it is difficult to make up for noise levels and chef directed plating. Fairly new place in the heart of main (Queen) street, so i wish them luck. A small fish in a big pond, they have large shoes to fill ... a double metaphor.

The menu & service at Treadwell are truly special. Locally sourced ingredients are always the star of the menu, and the wine list is carefully crafted to highlight Canada's finest wines (among others). The Treadwell team is always so gracious, and the service is a perfect blend of approachable and knowledgeable. We look forward to our next meal at Treadwell!

Two of us enjoyed a very delicious dinner at Treadwell Farm to Table Cuisine in Niagara on the Lake. Our server was excellent - responsive but never intrusive. Both of us had the halibut which I think was one of their specials that evening. It was very good and attractively presented. The wine list was good and included wines from several local wineries. All in all, it was a very pleasant evening.
The only minor negative point that I might mention is that the restaurant called my home phone in Edmonton the day before to confirm the reservation. Since I was already in NOTL, I wasn't there and was concerned that they might have cancelled our reservation. However I did drop by the restaurant earlier that day to make sure I still had my reservation and there wasn't any problem.
