My wife and I loved our meal at Treadwell's at a recent fall evening. We had to dine early as we were going to the theatre, so we began at the ridiculously early (for us) hour of 5:45. We were a little nervous about sitting...outside on a patio on a fall day but it worked out fine. The tables were well spaced, there were ample very impressive patio heaters. The meal was fantastic! 4 courses for C$90 seemed quite reasonable. I was afraid it would be too much food but it wasn't. I had an amazing soup, my wife a very nice salad. The second course was a scrumptious foie de gras. My main course, a beef tenderloin, was so tender and beautifully marinated. And we had to finish up with our Treadwell favourite, creme brulee. The meal was served by Benoit who was attentive, professional and very engaging. We had a small problem when my wife didn't appreciate the unfiltered wine that she had ordered. Without a moment's hesitation (even though it was our fault) they replaced it with something more to her liking. We have been eating at this restaurant, the best in NOTL, for many years. They haven't slipped at all. What a delightful evening!More

Amazing food with superb attention to detail. The pea soup was to die for as was the deconstructed strawberry shortcake. Top notch food and ambiance. Use the sommeliers skills to recommend the perfect wine pairing. you wont regret it

We came here for an anniversary dinner which I told them when I made my reservation. We got a nice glass of Prosecco at the start of our meal. I was very happy to be seated indoors on what turned out to be a very...stormy evening. The four course meal was fantastic- I loved the duck foie gras, the husband loved the scallops and steak. My duck breast was delicious. Our desserts were excellent the lemon basil tart was out of this world, husband opted for the cheese plate. The cheeses were at the perfect temperature not fridge cold. I had the wine pairing and appreciated that they used local vineyards as well as international labels. Service was impeccable and I would come back for a special occasion anytime.More

My wife and I went here for dinner and enjoyed it. The peach gazpacho was outstanding. The haddock was good, though we both thought the texture of the scallop in the zucchini blossom was different - like a sausage made from scallops. The foise gras...with apricot tart tatine was very nice. We came back to pick up our desserts after theater - lemon basil tart and fennel pollen ice cream, but lo, and behold, NO ice cream. That was disappointing.More

NOTL is our hub and we rent the same cottage 4-5 times a year. Staying in NOTL, Treadwell is always a must for us. There isn't anything we don't like all these years. We do not have favourites, we love them all. We savour their...food and their service is always fantastic and friendly. We eat there for lunch and dinner. We always wish we have a bigger stomach. We also love we can bring our dog with us seated outside.More

After many visits to NOTL, we were very excited to finally get a reservation at Treadwell. Unfortunately the experience was underwhelming. It started with a table at the entrance, facing all the guests arriving. I will admit the food was very good, but after the...appetizer there was an hour wait for the second course. The waiter offered us an extra glass of wine for the inconvenience. We had two sommeliers, neither were good. The wine was too warm and they just did not listen to our comments, preferences, etc. If we return, it won’t be soon and it won’t be for dinner, maybe a lunch would be a better experience.More

We came to Treadwell for our anniversary and had heard great things. We were able to snag a reservation at 7;45 pm although we wanted to come earlier as we are older and don't have the stamina that we used to. It was a fixe...prix menu that looked very nice. After we arrived, we were given some sparkling wine for the anniversary and then everything slowed right down. Our main did not arrive until 2 1/4 hr after we got there. We couldn't even handle staying for desert. We are not sure where the holdup was - kitchen, server, ??? but it put a damper on our experience. The food was great but everything moved along much too slowly, especially considering the price.More
