Great caprese salad
The duck was excellent. The Halibut not so much. Appetizers acceptable. Wine very nice. Service excellent.
Everything was absolutely delicious. Only comment I have is they changed the lasagna recipe, it was GREAT before, now it’s good. Why fix something that isn’t broken? Apart from that, Teatro always delivers!
Spacious and elegant. Service is excellent. Food presentation and quality is always outstanding.
Very nice place to have a wonderful dinner with friends!
It was one of my best service ever
The food and service was great. Very creative selections on the menu.
Teatro lives up to its reputation. The decor is absolutely outstanding. You feel like you're immersed in a New York artdeco atmosphere. The service was fantastic, right from the beginning. The wild mushroom risotto was one of the best I had. Smooth texture, nutty flavours. The Caprese salad was beyond our expectations. They do indeed take pride in working with the best ingredients. As for the dessert, I never order Tiramisu in Calgary because it is always a disappointment. This one was one of the best I had in my life, and I did have some really great ones in Italy.
Small details like the bread and the olive oil made the entire dining experience truly specials.
I would suggest the management to consider including some more affordable options on their wine cart. The price range starts at 70-80 per bottle. But they do indeed have an impressive wine list.
From the minute you walk in the door you are greeted with wonderful service. The staff is amazing and makes experience extraordinary. The food is served beautifully and the taste is above all perfect.
Fantastic food and a great wine list. Great service. My go to place when in town.
It was great. I have an allergy and they were able to make it work. Definitely be back.
Superb wine list; menu does not offer significant interesting choices for vegans. Presentation is excellent. Gnocchi was very unsatisfactory--overdone, too crisp. Calamari as an appetizer is excellent; tomato/buffalo boccinini salad somewhat uninspired. More unique pasta dishes without veal (or any meat) would add a great deal, especially as a first/smaller course. Servers can be a bit abrupt and convey a sense that they want you out.
Booths are probably the best/quietest and more private places to sit though if you are facing in, you have a nearby wall to look at. Stately neoclassical decor cannot be duplicated in newer restaurants; the bar is beautiful and the high ceilings, while accelerating noise, give an air of nostalgia for long-lost historical buildings.
You need an "all" category above because I would recommend Teatro for any event. We had the United Way rally in Olympic Plaza - very lively and fun. Unfortunately we also had wasps swarming our food on the patio but your staff dealt with our dash for safety with aplomb. The wasps are all over Olympic Plaza so I know you can't do anything about them. We had a great dining experience. Thank you!
Excellent experience! Service was exceptional, the ambience great, the food outstanding. The wine list incredible and my husband loved the brandy selection.
The food was delicious, it was extremely busy so the waiters didn’t come over unless they were bringing food or water. A little pricey but good cocktails as well.
Great experience for our anniversary. Booked on open table had the tasting menus. Thought the portions were small but was really full at the end of the meal.
We enjoyed our Family dinner, they even made a special meal for me!
Always enjoy dinners at Teatro. One of my favourites!
We have been to Teatro a number of times. The last two occasions have been disappointing. The lobster lasagna- a favourite- was disappointing as had a very strong licorice taste. We talked with server and she stated it was the new ingredients. Also had the boar special that was dry and had a poor flavour.
Not sure we will go back as this was our second disappointing visit
Great menu, staff and ambience. We had the tasting menu and it was amazing! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Very professional establishment. Will be back!
It was our anniversary and the staff made us feel very welcome. They even gave us complimentary champagne so that was very nice.
Our server was good however she did not have as much knowledge about the menus as would be expected for this resultant.
My husband had the oysters for his starter and I had the garden salad. Both very taste. I had the seared scallops and pork belly for my entree and my husband had the Wagyu beef. I loved mine it was so perfect, the gnocchi along with it was amazing. My husband enjoyed his very much he said it was cooked perfectly.
The atmosphere was lovely as well, very intimate for a Anniversary dinner and lovely to see outside through the amazing doors.
The food was really good, fresh and tasty. Our server that night wasn’t great. She did her job OK but certainly nothing special for an upscale restaurant.
The appies, salmon with risotto, and dessert were really well done and creative. The clafoute was a miss - good flavour but the texture was like a supermarket cake. The music was way too loud - we had trouble conversing - and inappropriate for the classic venue. Our server was knowledgeable, likeable and attentive. So overall, there were some big hits and some big misses.
I found Teatro online when looking for a place to eat after attending a work conference. I was definitely not disappointed with my choice. I was seated at the bar as they were busy and I was solo. Service was great from the start and the food was delicious, the mushroom risotto particularly. My only regret was not saving room for desert as they looked delicious aswell. If I’m ever back in Calgary I’ll be going back to Teatro.
I love this restaurant. Whatever you order you will be impressed. So professional on every level. A beautiful, decorous evening in a beautiful restaurant, fabulous attentive service, outstanding cuisine made by Chef's who know and love their craft.
Such a beautiful restaurant. Have been there for both lunch and dinner. But the portions are very small....and I’m a senior. I find that by the time I get home I’m hungry.
Fantastic dinner my wife and I had!!! Mitch was our server, we REALLY enjoyed him.....he made the night!! We will be back for sure!
We are new to Calgary and looking for a good restaurant to enjoy with visiting friends next month. Teatro was recommended to us as one of the best in Calgary but we didn't have a good meal there. Really expensive too. The presentation of the meals was very artistic but the quality of ingredients was disappointing. The appetizers and desserts appeared to be partially prepared ahead of time and had suffered in cold storage. Meat and fish was both over and under cooked. The au jus with the wild boar chop was oddly sweet. Fish had a bit of odour as though not totally fresh. Portions, with the exception of dessert, were small. Service was indifferent and off putting with the exception of the young lady serving bread and taking coats. Even the bread was not fresh.
Outstanding as always. Unprecedented service and fantastic food!
We haven't been to Teatro in years but we chose to visit for our 20th anniversary. The service was impeccable and the food was presented well. Everything exceeded expectations and we even ordered dessert when we knew we were too full to continue.
Food and Ambience was great. Service was mediocre. We were there at 1:30pm on Friday for lunch. I watched our food sit under the heat lamp for 10 minutes before someone brought it over. With 3 servers and 4 tables I expected better service.
Teatro has been located in this historic sandstone Former Bank for 25 years. An authentic Italian menu, a daily rotisserie meat special, a comfy outdoor patio, and the best food ever.
Spot on every time.
My favourite restaurant ever!
It was totally awesome. Enjoyed watching the chef prepare our meal!
Food was excellent. Service was great. Very accommodating with our nut allergy.
Great food, presentation and tasty!!
Service could be a bit better
Loved the food and wine. Excellent 'theatrical' dramatic atmosphere, with its mix of classical and contemporary aesthetics. Delicious cuisine. Terrific service. Highly recommend.
Everything we ate was superb. Kelsey our server was exceptional. Very personable and prompt. Keep it up!
