Service. Food and wine selection was beyond expectations. We had reservations for 9:30 and went early simply to see if there was any cancellations. There wasn’t but they accommodated us and treated us with kid leather gloves. Have already recommended this place to all I have spoke to!! Thank you for such a special evening for me and my daughter - both who are huge foodies and truly enjoy amazing wines (we had the ‘disco bear’). Bravo!

Had an amazing 25th anniversary celebration at Treadwell's. We each enjoyed an appetizer, an entree and glass of wine plus we shared a dessert. Cost was about $250, exactly what we would have expected. The staff is very hospitable and the food was amazing. Highly recommend.

The food was outstanding. They had a special salad with peaches, tomatoes and cheese. The dressing was delicious. I had the mackerel which was very good. My husband had the lobster sandwich which was amazing. Topped off with a lovely rose from France. Service was excellent. Highly recommend. Just know it’s a bit pricey. We didn’t mind at all.

Fantastic as per usual! This is my 3rd time at Treadwell's. My husband and I sat at the counter to catch all the action; it's amazing to see how chef and the team prepare all of the meals and how they work together. I really wanted the halibut, however when I ordered it the server informed me that they were all out. Another couple ordered the fries, but they were out as well. It was disappointing but it just goes to show how fresh their food is, and I can appreciate that. Regardless, everything tasted wonderful.
We stopped at the bakery the next day and WOW the baked goods and the sandwiches are a must try! I cant wait until I go back to try a slice of za.

I’ve eaten here now over 6 times, and the quality of the food is often inconsistent. Presentation was good, service good but certainly not worth the cost associated with each item. Dinner for two after tip with only two beers was close to 200$.

Our server Tara was frantastic, funny and attentive. Her recommendations were spot on especially the wine paring. Well done we will be back!

We had excellent service by Benoit and Billy. However the manager Tony should never tell a group of six ladies to try and keep the noise level down. It’s very rude when you spend that kind of money on wine and food and tell a bunch of ladies in their 40’s and 50’s to shush. Won’t be back.

This is an absolutely terrific restaurant. Not only is it the best place to eat in Niagara on the lake, it is one of the best places to eat anywhere. Going to the Treadwell is one of the best reasons to go to the Shaw festival. I recommend it to anyone and everyone

My husband and I dined here recently while enjoying our honeymoon. We wanted to have a celebratory dinner to mark the occasion, and we chose this restaurant because we both value a farm-to-table dining experience. I have worked in the service industry for 14 years, and I appreciated the beautifully curated menu and wine list, as well as the seamless service. We opted to share a selection of appetizers (a melon and duck prosciutto salad, as well as a home-made pasta with braised rabbit) and enjoyed the selection of wine parings chosen for us by the sommelier. We both enjoyed our entrees (halibut and pork tenderloin/pork belly), and we finished our meal off with a selection of cheeses and a 20 yr. old port. We felt well taken care of, with happy bellies, and happy hearts when we left the restaurant.

slow service. Much attention paid by waitstaff and sommeliers to some tables while others waited. We ordered a glass of wine from the waiter but had to wait for sommelier to come explain the wine. The tomato, peach and goat cheese was pleasantly split into two servings. The bacon pieces on the rainbow trout were rock hard.
On this limited menu there were changes or substitutions on one of three starters and three of the four desserts. Disappointing.

Excellent restaurant.only 2 drawbacks. Tables quite close together and with an open kitchen you hear the chef calling out orders. It adds to the noise level. In spite of booking a table 2 weeks previously we were told , on arrival, that all tables on the patio were reserved. It is quieter outside. The food is amazing as is the presentation and the service so will put up with a few minor irritants.

Treadwells offers the best food and top quality service. There is an outdoor patio during good weather. We sat inside at the bar overlooking the open kitchen. It was a real treat to watch the professionals work and see the dishes being prepared. The sommelier offered excellent wine and food pairing suggestions. The group beside us at the bar shared a chacoutetie platter and appetizer and were very happy with their choices.

If the salad was not cold because of being prepared previously, all the meals were perfect but I think that in that kind of restaurant, they should not prepared in advance. The peaches and tomatoes are better when warm.

An amazing supper with friends. Food was superb. The linguini with rabbit, the duck breast with abricots and the short ribs to die for. Also the desert Smokey cherry - you can’t go wrong. We also indulged in the fries. All delicious. Tara helped to make the evening memorable and had great wine recommendations from the sommelier.

Will definitely go back.

The farm-to-table menu offered a broad choice of items for each cpurse, locally sourced. Our dinner menu choices were prepared with obvious interest from the kitchen in producing a superior dish, in taste, texture and appearance. a memorable meal. to be highly recommended.
