Were it not for an over-privileged family dining next to our table with horribly behaved children, our experience would have been perfect. Well plated, delicious food; gorgeous wine, lovely interior. I have no idea how the wait staff could have dealt with this family any better than they did, so I feel for them; unfortunately, patrons are something they can't control.

I would definitely recommend the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings. Everything blew me away and I really enjoyed certain items I would have never tried off the regular menu. I will return!

The food was amazing and the service was okay, for the most part. There were a few times we were left sitting without our insanely overpriced water (FYI still water is not what you think - and it’s $8.25/bottle! More expensive than a beer!!! We were not told this - we thought we were ordering tap water). We ended up paying $16.50 just for water. Secondly my partner was very clearly injured and it wasn’t until after her return from taking the stairs down to the bathroom, and then back up, with a full leg brace, that they told us they had a bathroom on the main floor. Our waiter wasn’t the most attentive. The restaurant itself was pretty and the kitchen did a great job

Teatro Restaurant
Responded on July 31, 2020

Hello, there! Thank you for your time and providing us with your feedback. We regret to hear about the miscommunication regarding the water. Your server must have thought you wanted still water as opposed to tap. We will ensure this is more clearly communicated in the future! We also regret that we missed communicating about our washroom on the main floor. We can appreciate the inconvenience this would have caused. We sincerely hope there will be an opportunity to join us again!

I loved the ambiance. As I am vegetarian, I had mushrooms in starter, it was good. I loved it. Vegeterian tagliatelle was okay and I also loved the dessert. I had tiramisu, it was mouth watering and I never had this good tiramisu in my life.

Service was prompt and engaging. Super friendly server, all the other staff that checked in on us were wonderful. They were there, but not “overwhelmingly” there. Food was delicious, and a welcome change from the quarantine blahs. Highly suggest the mushroom on toast.

Probably a 4.5 more than a 4.

I made reservations for my boyfriends birthday on a Sunday evening and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Throughout the night our waiter Rene made excellent food suggestions, while recognizing that I had a dairy allergy, and was very accommodating for several dishes. The Sommelier, Taylor, also visited our table several times throughout the evening to pair the perfect wine for each of our courses. I highly recommend Teatro for a personal and engaging dinner experience.

No less than three times, our servers served me before my girlfriend. Utterly classless behaviour and highly offensive. 

Next is the food. Bland, lifeless, and uninspiring. Very very average. At best.

Next, the drinks. Who the hell charges $27 for a martini? That's nothing short of price gouging for some vodka and a couple of olives (with pits I might add - another classless move). My girlfriend's plate was $29. The martini was pretty much the same price. I am so angry about this. Oh, and $22 for a glass of wine. Come on. Really??? Your restaurant isn't that nice that you can pretentiously do this without being called out for it. But I doubt you have a conscience about it.

In short, a miserable experience. My girlfriend agrees completely. We'll never return.

Overpriced. Mediocre food. Poor ambiance. Bad service. Save yourself the trouble.

Absolutely terrible.

Our server insisted on rushing us throughout, not of the normal high standard. Had a red wine by the glass and it was served at a lot higher than optimal temperature. My pasta dish was exposed to the heat lamp for some time and looked it.
