Excellent service, lovely room albeit chilly by the windows (awful, cold evening). Tasting menu for the full table with wine pairings. Courses were ok overall, a tasty fried oyster, some carpaccio, a scallop and some gorgeous beef/ but two were a vast disappointment/ the tagliatelle was dry and uninspired with a very oily puddle and limited flavour. The dessert was a brownie. A brownie! This is a tasting menu? Sadly uninventive, dry and underwhelming for a finish to a fancy night out. Good thing the bonbon was killer-

The service at Teatro is always amazing, but they definitely went above and beyond this visit. It was my boyfriends birthday and everything was just perfect. From the seating, to the meal itself and even the nice little touch with dessert at the end of the night, just amazing!

The service was nice and it was a slow night, but the food was certainly not what I would expect for what we spent. I do not suggest getting the ribeye - nothing in particular wrong with it, just not good, which it should be for the price. Again, the service was very good.

Teatro Restaurant

Hey, Kayleigh! Thank you for bringing your concern forward. We regret our team wasn't informed of your dissatisfaction with the ribeye, we would have been happy to fix that for you to enjoy!

The 3 course express lunch was very good. Our server is a very nice fellow who is very knowledgeable about the building history. We also enjoy the quick wine cellar tour and we got introduced to one if not the most expensive bottle of wine they have, the price $7500. Their wine cellar is the former bank vault of the former Toronto Dominion Bank.

This was a Special Occassion Dinner and we were attending a Play after dinner, which the restaurant was aware of when the reservation was made.
First - arriving to our reservation finding it to be a a high table in the lounge, they did quickly change our table for fine dining. The appetizers were very good and served quickly, Calamari and Charcuterie. While we were still enjoying our Appetizers, staff frequently came to the table to remove the plates, my dining partner just gave up and let them take the Charcuterie away only half consumed. We were keeping an eye on our time since we were attending a play but at this point still had 1.5 hrs left til we needed the bill. They reset our table twice, then quickly served our Dinner. The Rib eye steak was very good. The staff were not the friendliest and a little stiff. We were able to have and enjoy our conversation without hearing everyone else's. Calgary has a lot of great restaurants, with high standards, hard to recommend this one.

Brilliant as always!
Our charming server Kat was absolutely on board with me ordering up the tail end of the Happy Hour Menu before the other guests arrived.
She even waited for each guest before delivering their HH beverage.
I, of course was served my drink(s) immediately and got to happily absorb all of the spectacular ambiance whilst nibbling on nuts and olives and tasty cheese.
All of that just for me as I was the only patron in the joint for a good 20 minutes!
No one treated me like Miss Havisham during that time.
Our food was spectacular as was the service.
My Lobster Lasagna was exactly what it should be ( cab driver on they way down had great things to say about this establishment, all of them true) and I know all of us enjoyed our meals immensely.
I've only managed to convert one of our group into skipping the menu and going straight for my favourite.
As a result, I can also confirm that the gnocchi ( x 2, Mr Tagliatelle was across the round table and didn't offer to share) is sublime and the Caesar salad, while initially unwieldy, is worth the effort.
Lobster Lasagna!
If not for everyone, then maybe just for me.
Can't wait to return.

I'm no Fancy Dan, and I'm more often in the company of people who ask me if I want to supersize, but I wanted to take a friend for a fancy meal. The food was amazing, the staff wonderful, and the room gorgeous. The staff pretty quickly sussed that we were not movers and shakers on the high seas of industry, and their service only improved. It felt very much like their goal was to make sure we had the most amazing experience, and they nailed it.

We made a reservation several weeks in advance for our anniversary and requested one of the booths. Typically we would not request a table. Upon arrival we were informed that they didn’t have a booth available, but were happy to seat us at “another great table”. This table was tucked away in a corner of the restaurant and we knew that it wasn’t a great table, as we have sat there before. One of the reasons we come to this restaurant is to enjoy the ambiance. This table allowed none of that. The next “great table “ was right beside the kitchen. We have sat there before too and do not want to sit there again. In the end the hostess put us at a table in the middle of the place. Our meal was very average, and unfortunately not cooked to the temperature I had requested. The manager was apologetic and took it off our bill, but nonetheless it was yet another thing that took away from what was supposed to be a special night. This isn’t the first time this restaurant has fallen short. Next special occasion we will try another restaurant.

Dinner before a show for 6 people. Such a great room, and delicious food. Service is formal but not stiff.

Waiter got one order wrong, but it seems like the whole restaurant pitched in to fix it and get us out on time. Mistakes happen, but it is what the server does after the mistake that matters. These guys are pros.

Teatro is a 'splurge' restaurant for us, but it checks all the boxes for an elegant night out. We'll be back.
