Treadwell is a small, intimate restaurant, tucked away off of Queen Street. The tasting menu for dinner was delightful. We choose the wine pairing, which worked out well. The staff went out of their way to make it an enjoyable evening. Great place for a...celebration dinner.More

We had an excellent experience at Treadwell's. We sat at the chef's table as I am a foodie and thought it would be fun to watch the action. You can clearly see that these folks work together very well. Even the gentlemen taking care of...the dishes was able to maneuver through the action without getting in the way. Our food was delicious - well cooked, nicely presented. Very fun to have the chef serve us. They entertained us with their chit chat. They were attentive and fun. The wait staff were all excellent. The sommelier definitely knew his stuff. We did not go with the wine paring but rather opted to have a beautiful bottle of wine recommended to us. This is small restaurant. They are doing their level best to seat as many people through the evening as they can hence the two seating options available. We were seated at 8:00 without any delays. We were finished by 10:00.More

Had a Birthday dinner with my family that we all looked forward to however, the staff were abrupt and rude . In particular, one staff member who came over to our table and blasted us for ( in her opinion) being loud . We advised...her that since there were eight of us , she couldn’t expect us to be totally quiet all the time . We also told her that we were just having the usual family discussions over dinner, and that she was being unreasonable and quite frankly, very condescending to my family. The restaurant itself lends to having groups and large gatherings and also has a long bar . It’s, therefore, not your typical quiet, small, cozy restaurant where conversations are kept at a low level . Of course , our evening was ruined and it was unfortunate that the tip was already included in our very pricy bill . There was also another incident by one of their staff towards one of the bartenders that was also very uncomfortable. Very very unprofessional and definitely will not go back .More

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner in Treadwell’s intimate dining room. The cosy room had a nice ambience for a romantic date and most people around us were couples. The serving staff were all very pleasant and friendly. The sommelier was quite knowledgeable about their wine...selection and more generally about the region. We found the four-course prix fixe to be reasonably priced and were happy to note that the restaurant is vegetarian friendly (with vegan options on request). They were very accommodating for special dietary needs. The best part of the meal was the lovely plating and presentation of the dishes. The flavours were somewhat predictable, but everything was tasty; the emphasis seemed to be on satisfying guests rather than offering a creative or different experience. Dining at Treadwell was a satisfying experience, but not one we would travel out of our way to repeat.More

Three of us very much enjoyed our meal here between two shows at the nearby Royal George. We enjoyed the matched wine pairings that selected different wines for each of us based on our individualized meal selections for each course. The food portions of the...courses were good sized, not the tiny samples you sometimes experience, so value was received as well as excellent preparation and presentation. Very tasty. And there was excellent and timely service by friendly and knowledgeable staff, no sign of staff shortages here.More

Enjoyed the intimate, cosy atmosphere at Treadwell for a late dinner with wine pairing. Excellent, professional service from all staff. Our exuberant sommelier was especially entertaining, as well as knowledgeable and ready with answers to all questions about the local wines. Solid menu has a...broad range of dishes (vegetarian and vegan modifications available) and food was plated nicely. Nothing extraordinary about the meal itself; the quiet ambiance was the best part.More

We ate at the Kitchen bar so we could watch the chefs in action. It was a blast. The chefs were fantastic(John and Julio), explained everything. Every course was outstanding. Excellent wine. Not inexpensive but quality all around. Highly recommend!!

We reserved on a Saturday evening after being recommended from a fellow "foodie" friend. While the prix fixe menu options reflected the seasonal and local inclinations, I wouldn't describe them as inventive or exciting and not worth the 95$ each. The grilled foie gras was...on spiced bread that was dry, crumbly (not in a gingerbread type of way) and too small for the portion of foie gras. The accompanying pickled crab apples were seedy and stemmed. I would have appreciated if they were prepared with more care. The halibut was well cooked, as was the lobster ravioli that topped it, but the cherry tomato sauce vierge lacked herbaciousness to accompany the flavours. The cocktails and wine were delicious and well selected. Dessert options all included a heavy dairy component. The chocolate hazelnut tart was hard and dry with a tasteless buttermilk ice cream. I tried my partner's sticky toffee pudding which was vaguely warm, doughy and too sweet. Not what we'd expected for a pastry staple like sticky toffee pudding.More

The staff were great. The four course price fix was amazing. A few items change on the menu from time to time (I think to go with the season). We would highly recommend this place for dinner.

Outstanding in every way. Outstanding four-course dinner. Four choices for each course. Among our group of six, we had 14 of the 16 possible choices. Every one of them was wonderful. Our server, Taylor, was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. This is not a cheap meal....But it is SO worth it for a splurge.More

We ate inside. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was good but but but ... we could smell the butter and grease off the burners and our clothes smelled grease upon leaving. Cocktails and wines excellent. The food? Not as good as before .. bigger...portions, not well presented and middle of the road ... whilst prices are much higher than some better value vineyards. Food made it a disappointment.More

Everything that my husband and I shared was delicious. We dined outdoors and I loved the extra touches like the blankets provided in the event of a chill. My husband specifically loved the wine pairing.
