    We were celebrating our anniversary and the waiter brought over a complimentary glass of champagne. Then the sommelier came by and answered our questions and recommended a fantastic bottle. All in all, the dinner was great. The food was delicious too.

    I took my Mum here as a part of a theatre night out and we fell in love with Teatros. Our server, Michael, was fantastic. He was pleasant and knowledgeable - it was nice to have a proper dinning experience on this side of the Atlantic. We weren't pressured to pay up and leave. The courses were properly spaced - allowing you time to enjoy and savor the culinary artistry of the kitchen. We then enjoyed a perfect cappuccino and their Tiramisu. Not one complaint with this meal or service. It was also the small touches like the purse stands for our bags. Marvelous experience in the heart of Calgary. Classic and can't wait to return.

    This restaurant is VERY expensive. It was good but for the price, should be outstanding. If you are looking for a $60 - $90 bottle of wine, your choices are very limited. There is lots of selections for $300 - $1,000 range.

    We asked for a nice table for my husband's birthday and we got a romantic and private boot. We never had to waive for anything, the staff was great. We had beef carpaccio, beef tenderloin and lamb chops. It was excellent. It's good to mention that they have virgin option for the drinks... it comes handy when you are pregnant and you tired of sipping water or virgin ceasar everywhere you go! We will definately go back !

    We enjoyed our 3 day shopping trip to Calgary and dinner at Teatro was a highlight. We had the Short Beef Rib Saltimbocca - excellent. Our waiter were exceptional and he invited us on a tour of your wine cellar (mainly because, I think, we had visited that wine vineyard in Italy). Amazing! Being able to view these old buildings from the basement was also a real treat. We will definitely return on our next trip from Medicine Hat.

    Mmmm
    Dined on 9/3/2014
    We celebrated our anniversary there and had a great time. The Tagliatelle was a perfect size for myself and was very fresh. My husband had the lamb chops and said they tasted good but a big fatty for there size and the side dishes were boring and broccolini was a little overcooked to his liking. Lots of great options if you can't drink alcohol too seeing I was pregnant, that's always a bonus when you can't enjoy a glass of wine. By the end of the night we were very thirsty for water so not sure if there was too much salt in the dishes that we didn't notice at the time or not. Overall, we would dine there again. Very interested in having there lunch $25 with 3 courses.

    I selected Teatro for the night of the day we did our civil marriage. Ambient was ok but not wow! We selected steak and pasta. Steak was funny and no taste. 44$ for a simple piece of beef! Pasta was great! So in case pasta is ordered u will be happy but for pasta there are many places to try in the city. I think the reason Teatro is a considered a great restaurant is that Calgary does not have many classy high end restaurant.

    We went for supper mid-week so it wasn't too busy. Nice ambience, cold though. For the prices, you would expect excellent quality but it was not so. The $25 fish was just ordinary and could have come cheaply from any Sask lake. The $36 beef tenderloin was inedible (tough although ordered medium). The veggies were also less than ordinary. The wine was pricey and upset my husband's tummy. The pourer was also very stingy and maybe poured only 4 oz instead of 6. The desserts were also disappointing - creme brûlée was a murky Earl Grey version and hubby had some kind of hard lemon square - only the raspberry sorbet was good. The service was good but really, you can get a better meal just about anywhere else.

    Hands down our new favourite. The staff and food was amazing. Our waiter was Michael B. We came for our anniversary. We were greeted and seated and brought two glasses of prosecco. Complimentary. Service was amazing. Wine/water always filled and knowledgable on menu. Our dessert was on the house. Noise level was minimum which was nice. Food was tasty and decent portions. Beautiful decor. It was a wonderful dining experience. Will be back with friends definitely!!!

    We've been here in the past and found the cannelloni absolutely delicious. This time around they told us the seafood lasagna would be the same. Unfortunately, the seafood was only alright and the sauce was too dry. This dish was not very disappointing. The prawn spaghetti was also too salty. Generally the rest of the meal was good, but not good enough that I would go back.

    My downtown client used the words "delightful lunch" to describe our booking at Teatro. I am very comfortable bringing anyone there now, especially people I want to impress. The menu is perfect for anyone, from fish to beef, and a glass of wine, or water, all works! I will return when I want a good meal with people I enjoy. Great service too, which is sometimes hard to find in busy downtown Calgary.

    My husband and I went for our anniversary and had a great time. Fanastic ambience- gorgeous building. They gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to start- such a great surprise. We did the 8 course tasting menu which took just over 2 hours. We highly recommend it. Each course was fantastic and we were not over-stuffed by the end. For the dessert course, we were brought up to the kitchen to watch it being made. It was a cool twist to end our meal. Our server was very knowledgable about the wine list and we thoroughly enjoyed our selection. Overall a great evening and we look forward to going back.

She even brought dessert of our choice on the house as the staff felt that our entrees were not out as soon as they should have been. Wow - a pleasant surprise! This was our 2nd visit and we have had great service and delicious food both times. We will be back!
