We were looking forward to dining here. The experience was fine, but just fine. There were three of us dining at lunch. We all ordered the mushroom soup as a starter. It lacked seasoning. My mother had to flag down the server to ask for pepper. The server brought it to her but then promptly turned on her heel away from the table before asking either my sister and I if we would like some as well. My sister had to flag her down again to bring it back, and then she turned away again without offering it to me. We originally asked for still water but throughout service we were switched to sparkling. We didn’t say anything because it wasn’t a fuss. I ordered the mackerel. The poached egg on top was hard boiled. My mother’s steak was cold. I had to flag down the server twice to ask her to top up wines. If any of these things were isolated then we would not be fussed over it. Cumulatively, unfortunately we most likely will not return.

All local food but has its own features. Food was cooked just exactly right. We also like their creativeness. Even the dessert menu surprised us. I am not a big fan of sweets. But, tried their toffee cake, amazing taste! Will definitely come back again.

This was our first time going to Treadwell, for our anniversary. Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by the hostess and maître d’ wishing us a happy anniversary. We were sat at the booths close to the kitchen so we could see what was going on, but far enough away it wasn’t so busy or hot. The sommelier and our server Jerome came over to wish us a happy anniversary as well, and the sommelier poured us a complimentary glass of sparkling wine.

We ordered the charcuterie, scallops and foie gras. This was our first experience with foie gras and it was extremely pleasant, with preserved apricots and a sweet baguette, and the scallops were the best we’ve ever had with a sweet tangy parsnip puree accompanying it. The charcuterie was to die for! The date preserve, terrine and prosciutto were our favourites.

For entrees we ordered the special, short ribs, and the Arctic char. Both were cooked perfectly, the short ribs were buttery with a nice barbecue/hoisin sauce and mustard potato purée, and the Arctic char was paired well with dauphinoise potatoes and a honey lemon sauce.

The dessert was the best part of our meal. We ordered the dark chocolate marquise with blackberry sorbet, cheddar crumble, and a tart blackberry compote that balanced well. The apple crumble we ordered was fantastic, caramelized apples, a sticky toffee bottom, vanilla bourbon ice cream and chèvre crust.

Our service throughout was impeccable and the warm wishes and sparkling wine from service topped off the occasion. Overall extremely pleasant, we will be back and will recommend it to everyone we know (we already have)!

My party of 6 all felt that the restaurant was very overpriced. The Menu was misleading. The steak we ordered at lunch was a flank steak but the menu did not state that. The meat was tough and the knife utensil was not sharp enough to cut it. The salad that accompanied the lobster sandwich was far too salty. Overall, we were excited to try this restaurant but were disappointed when we left.

We've been making the drive from Toronto to Treadwells for many years, ever since father and son opened the original Port Dalhousie location. It's just a perfect restaurant in every way. And Stephen Treadwell and his staff have an encyclopaedic knowledge of Niagara wines.

Consistently a gastronomical experience, we’ve choose Treadwell to celebrate our Anniversary dinner because we were there in the summer of couple of times and really enjoyed it. The food is excellent and paired wonderfully with great service. Also a great selection of wine! Look forward to going back.

The Bachelder white wine was excellent and complemented our meal. The staff was very attentive and the service was incredible. We all enjoyed our evening!
I would definitely go again when I am in town. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
