We waited 2 hrs for our order. The waiter kept coming over to apologize. He comped us desserts but it was outrageously slow. I would have expected the manager to acknowledge us but nothing. Normally would have just left but it was my mother's birthday so didnt want to wreck the day.

The awesomeness of this restaurant cannot be overstated! The food was out-of-this-world delicious. The beet salad was literally the greatest I’ve ever had. The mains were as beautiful as they were delicious. The sommelier was so friendly and knowledgeable, as were the entire staff. Total pros on every level. I can’t wait to go back next time we’re in NOTL. A true culinary delight! Tip: sit at the chef’s bar! It made the experience even more fun!

How do I start ?! Tredwells had always been one of our favourite restaurants. The evening that we were dining, for our anniversary celebration, there was a table of four that were engaged in a heated argument for the duration of our meal. Although the service staff explained that they had spoken to them to keep their voices down, the group continued to argue. The staff was truly rattled by these people. Therefore , the excellent customer service that we have received in the past was not up to the standard we have experienced before. The portion sizes seemed off. The beef short ribs were excellent. The halibut was bland and the portion size was small .
We realize that this situation had an affect on the servers . However, perhaps it could have been handled differently?
We will definitely be back to your restaurant, as we do love the food and the atmosphere. Hopefully, this is helpful for troubleshooting. Please understand that we will not post a negative review , as we believe that is is truly a one time incident .
Sincerely
Pauline & Lee Hurst

What a lovely lunch. Our server was outstanding. She answered our questions and made perfect menu suggestions and kept our water topped up. The lobster club on duck fat fried bread.....well really, how can you go wrong with that. Will return.

I was very excited to bring my mother here for Mother's day, but unfortunately we were not very impressed. The photos and reviews that I had read before-hand indicated that this restaurant would be exceptional, but based on the experience I would not rate this as that. This may have been due to the time that we went, 2pm, which was close to the end of lunch service (3pm), but this should not be an excuse. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with pork - the eggs were good but the pork was incredibly dry, and I did not even touch it. The server did not notice (lack of attention) and I was not in the mood to complain that day as I wanted to enjoy Mother's day. Service can definitely be improved. Maybe we just went on an off day, and I hope that it's not always like this.

We were celebrating our anniversary and they were kind enough to include some sparkling wine with our dinner. Concept is farm to table and they have a list of their suppliers on the back of their menu — a unique detail we appreciated. Our food was great and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Some of the best food I have eaten, combined with the most attentive and detail oriented service I have ever received. I appreciated the recommendation of the sommelier, as he was able to pick a great wine to both accommodate and compliment two very disparate meals. The restaurant was noisy, but that is what was expected with an open kitchen - professional people doing their jobs at a high level generates a certain level of noise that, in this situation was entirely expected and welcome.
Overall, a very wonderful experience, and will definitely recommended to anyone visiting the area.

Fantastic experience! We sat at the counter and watched the chef. Food was amazing. Beautifully paired with wine. It was expensive but worth the splurge for a special occasion. Love the farm to table.
We will be going back 100%.

We were a party of four for an anniversary celebration. We really enjoyed Treadwell. The only detraction was that we were seated by the dining bar and it was somewhat loud for conversation. It was too cool a night for the patio. Otherwise the evening was excellent with sumptuous food and great service. We would recommend it and plan to return.

Visited Treadwell for lunch before a performance at the Shaw Festival to celebrate a special occasion.

Every single person working at Treadwell was a pleasure to interact with. Service was outstanding, and the restaurant easily accommodated our vegan diet with innovative dishes. Plating was artistic and taste profiles were exquisite. Very knowledgeable sommelier was very helpful in recommending vegan wine parings for our vegan meals.

We sat at the chefs' table, a counter facing the chef kitchen, providing much entertainment and a great view into the craftsmanship and care by which their staff prepare food. The chefs were friendly and were very helpful in answering any questions we had.

Highly recommended!

Treadwell was highly recommended to us but our experience exceeded our expectations. Our waiter, Benoit, was fantastic - everything that he suggested was perfect, let alone he went out of his way to accommodate our likes and dislikes. The beef short ribs were unbelievable! Can't wait to get back again.

Sommelier was a highlight of the evening - starting us off with a glass of sparkling Riesling to celebrate our anniversary & then suggesting a very nice (and very reasonably priced to my surprise) local wine to accompany our meal selections. Service was very attentive, food was delicious (the first time I ate the skin on my seafood - excellent!) and the atmosphere was fun & lively. Will go back.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner at Treadwell. Seated in the front room (quieter). Open kitchen in the back room with the bar (would be noisier, perhaps). Terrific waiter—from France! Sommelier James Tresdwell treated us to a complimentary glass of local sparkling wine when we arrived. Our dishes were superb. Delicious and beautifully presented. Tremendous wine list for NOTL. Enjoyed our meal and will dine there again! (Short walk from the Prince of Wales Hotel where we stayed).

Excellent service from beginning to end. i admit that we wondered how fresh can you get in the winter, and the answer is, with the right people in the kitchen and obvious care to source, more fresh and tasty than some of our fine dining experiences in Toronto in the summer. I had not been to NOTL recently but I would love to come back overnight and emjoy a meal here again.

Treadwell's had been on my radar for several years and, until now, were never successful getting a reservation. Our expectations were high. The food did not disappoint and the counter was fun...impressive kitchen and chefs. Our only moment of....I don't even know the word....was around the wine service. After sampling and selecting our wine, my husband was served and I was not. After a few minutes, my husband asked the sommelier if he'd forgotten me, to which he replied that he did not know I was drinking. Odd, we thought, but O.K., however after waiting another 10 minutes my husband had to remind him again. I did finally get my wine but we were never asked if we'd like another glass. Strange, we thought. Didn't spoil the experience but did consider it mildly annoying. We will go back and chalk this error up as not typical. All that we ate was delicious....splitting appetizers and desserts left enough room to feel totally satisfied but not overly full...portions are generous and presented beautifully.
