Outstanding dinner. From service to food quality, things couldn’t have been better. It was our anniversary and the restaurant made the night memorable for us. Thanks Manuel and Maddy. Five stars!

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!

The only tiny downfall is that if you sit inside, it can be quite loud at times. Other than that, everything is amazing. Love the sommelier coming to the table to discuss the wine

Drove from Toronto to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. Had terrific seats at the bar and were able to watch the chefs do their magic. I'm not much of a foodie, but my boyfriend is and he positively loved it all. Service, wine, food and entertainment was superb. This will be a dinner we'll talk about for awhile.

We enjoyed our meal very much as he food was outstanding. The brunch items were quite expensive given the portion size. I understand fresh local ingredients are more expensive, but adding some potatoes to a breakfast would make $20 for eggs Benedict or Bacon & Eggs a bit easier to swallow. In addition, the coffee was not very tasty or hot enough. That all being said, it was delicious.

My wife and both love Treadwell. Service couldn't be better. My wife had venison & pork burger that was incredible. I had the Sunday rump roast with a chipotle glaze. Now there were two slices of meat and both were cooked medium rare but one was tougher. That's rump roast. They should use a more tender cut, even top sirloin. So that is the only knock I have. The chipotle glaze was just mildly spicy. Baby carrots had incredible flavour as did the fingerling potatoes. We spit the Petit Gateau "chocolate cake" that was also incredible.

My friends and I arrived 20 minutes early and told our table was not yet ready, so we were seated in an "annex" sort of more casual dining room. We enjoyed our meal, and our server was excellent. We had the burger and chef's salad with quinoa and salmon and they were delicious.
I would go back there with my husband.

Treadwells is a must when visiting Niagara on the Lake-for me when I make my room reservation I automatically make my Treadwell reservation.
I have been going to Treadwells at Niagara on the Lake since 2015 and have eaten there at least 6 times- the counter space is fun and sitting at a table is just as nice.
I have had groups of 6 or just 2 of us-the owner is friendly and welcoming and the staff is so accommodating.
I have recommended Treadwells to all my friends and relatives and will continue to make that part of my visit for as long as Treadwells will have me!

In a region loaded with seriously amazing restaurants, this one stands out. The food is just amazing, as is the ambiance.

If you have a huge appetite, this might not be the place for you. Smallish portions, but in keeping with the style of restaurant.

Simply unmatched wine. Try the 2012 Stratus Cabernet... you may never be the same.

Also, try the wine bar. We met couples from around the world and had great conversations.

We had a wonderful time. There was a challenge that the restaurant went over and beyond on. A few bites into my main course, I realised that it was not to my taste: it was EXACTLY as the menu had described and the chef had cooked it well. It just wasn't what I wanted that night. The vegetables were some of the best I have ever tasted but the protein wasn't. The server noticed but I told her not to worry. In fact I tried to disguise that I had not eaten that much. When the server came to remove the plate, we had a discussion were I tried to make clear that it was 100% my issue. We asked them not to worry about it.

But when the bill arrived the dish had been removed from the bill. We would have protested more -- honest -- but there was a taxi waiting for us.

Anyway, the restaurant truly cares about their food and having clients enjoy it.

I should mention that they were great help with the wine choice and nicely but discretely acknowledged my wife's birthday with a small (gluten free as requested) post dinner treat.

Its a small room and a short menu -- so make sure that you want something on it or be willing to be flexible.

We will return and will happily recommend it to anyone interested in good service.

Enjoyed Treadwells on a Sunday night getaway with my wife. The food was superb and the service was excellent. We were very impressed by the young people not only delivering the service but doing the cooking as well. We spoke with the young sous chef and he said that he was 21 years old. They did a great job. We would highly recommend the dining experience at this establishment.
