We had three generations to feed at lunch time and all three were given exactly what they requested even though the items were not on the menu. Upon entering the restaurant we were welcomed warmly and offered immediate attention . We were never rushed and had excellent service from all personnel .

It was a celebration for my grandson's award as The Young Entepreneur of the year from The Chamber Of Commerce Lemonade Day.

Thank you all for making it extra special.

Everything was truly wonderful for the special lunch with a friend that I had. The pasta was outstanding and we had the house wine on happy hour which was fine.
My only little piece of criticism was the background music that did not fit in with the lovely ambience. Then again, I am particularly difficult to please with restaurant music. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

It's been a little while since I dined at Teatro. The menu had a great selection. The decor and the new (to me) chandelier is fabulous. I love that they gave me a 'purse stool'. Service was excellent. My friend was in from Vancouver and he loved it also.

Thanks so much for a great evening.

We had an average dinner at Theatro. The service was ok but not outstanding. The food was average and overpriced. Theatro is using their location and old fame to raise their prices to the level of very fine dinning. The problem is that their quality and delivery is NOT at the level of a fine dining establishment. They are trying to be something they are not.

Food was very good, service was very good. The problem was that the heating system was not working correctly, it was very chilly inside and that spoiled the ambience. They should have compensated everyone either with a slight reduction on the tab or a glass of brandy or something. I'm surprised that an establishment of this stature didn't do something other than apologize. We spent over $200 for my wife's 69th birthday and that kind of spoiled it.

I don’t know what happened but I found the food a bit bland and lacking. I ordered the lasagna and wasn’t as espectacular as before. My husband had the pork chop and it wasn’t as tender as the waiter mentioned but it had good flavour. Dessert was the highlight for me as also they have a great variety of wines.
I wish they would bring back the seafood cannelloni they had before. Nothing compares to that.

Our 30th Anniversary trip to Banff. This was our last night before flying home. Waiter brought us Champagne gratis for our Anniversary. We can't say enough about this restaurant. Very Pretty and open interior. The service par excellent A shout out to our waiter James who was very attentive. We had Caesar salad interesting presentation. It came with white anchovies and we didn't have to ask. We had an app to share of eggplant parm, which was excellent. It is a good size portion and could be a dinner for one. Our main course was a seafood Lasagna again very delicious with pieces of lobster, shrimp and scallop that you can actually see in a delicious tomato sauce. The pastas are house made and you can taste the difference. I must mention the bread also made in the owner's Italian bakery is hard to say no to even after 3 pieces. This is truly fine dining at its best. If you visit Calgary or live there don't miss Teatro.

Atmosphere was excellent in this formerly upscale bank, every dish divine and Tanner our waiter was attentive and personable. The Tagliatelle was loaded with meat, the lobster risotto was loaded with lobster and the Caramella a sweet and savory presentation. Plating was exceptional and portions were perfect. Only problem was selecting from the 1000+ wine offerings, including beaujolais and northern Italian varietals. Don't miss this one. My top selection in Calgary.

Carpaccio was one of the better ones I've had in a long time. The tartare was the best I've had in a very long time, highly recommended. My ribeye was more cooked than I would've liked, but was so tender it didn't matter. The scallops were melt in your mouth good but the shrimp was a little overcooked and underseasoned. Overall, still fantastic. Was a little disappointed in the selection of desserts, but that's a preference thing and what we did get was still phenomenal. Service was outstanding, and appreciated the "Happy Anniversary" chocolate sign on the dessert after having made note of it in the Open Table reservation comment. Great time.

The wine list is a problem. There are very few wines under $100 a bottle. Their mark up is higher than we have experienced in other restaurants. The choice of wine is excellent. They have an extensive wine list. But they should either lower the price or get in some less expensive choices.
