Our award winning wine cellar hosts over 13,500 bottles and features 1100 labels, with a focus on the fine wines of Italy and Bordeaux. A truly unique fine dining experience can be enjoyed with our eight course Chef’s Tasting Menu. We also offer both private and semi-private dining options for large groups.

Diner Reviews
  • "Delicious food (particularly the pasta). The service itself was as good as I've encountered in Calgary. Our server was attentive, polite and made sure we were never left wanting, all without being overly intrusive. In a city like Calgary where service seems to be on the lower end of the spectrum, our experience was just about perfect."

  • "Food was amazing and worth every penny, service was really good as well. Didn't particularly like where we were seated. Off tucked away in a corner right beside the A/C register and was freezing during our dinner so we had to ask to have it turned down. Would definitely be back though and hope for a better table."

  • "We went for our anniversary and the food was fantastic. Our reservation was for 8 and we didn't get a table until about 810 however they set us up at the bar for cocktails and then paid for those drinks for us. It was very good. The waiter was outstanding and made great suggestions."

  • "A favourite due to the consistently excellent quality of food, presentation and service. Excellent for meeting lunches not only for the good impression left, but you can actually talk and hear one another!"

  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We're both huge foodies and are always trying new restaurants, foods, etc. I found it was in the top 2 restos in Calgary so I booked an reservation. We got there and were immediately impressed with the décor! Ceiling to floor doors, tall back couch-benches, beautiful and simple accents all over. You see the cooks working away but you're not distracted. We were taken to a booth and it felt private even though you're facing the room. The hostess took us early, the waiter read his tables perfectly! At first he was very professional and once he realised we were extra easy-going he starting making jokes but keeping the atmosphere still high-end. We both didn't order any wine, etc. Go here. It's amazing."

  • "My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. This kind of place is worth going to on a special occasion, will we be going monthly likely not. I've had as enjoyable meals out for a fraction of the price. However you are paying for a beutiful building and location, and your paying to be spoiled. The staff will spoil you and treat you like royalty."

  • "This was the first time we have gone to this restaurant and so we had some general expectations but were open to how different restaurants operate. The building, ambiance, and staff were great exactly what we would expect. Where things fell short was the food. We had the calamari which was cooked perfectly but was bland without using the aioli, my wife had the tortellini and I had the meatballs. The tortellini was also very bland and nothing special and although the meatballs were very rich the texture reminded me of a Salisbury steak. We opted out of the desert, my wife was looking for a simple cake but everything was complex so we ended up finishing our meal elsewhere. So for the cost we were disappointed."

  • "We were there for dinner with our friends on Sunday night during stampede week. we thoroughly enjoyed the starter, the main course and the wine list. Our waiter was bright, efficient, and well versed regarding the menu and other events going on in Calgary."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Our visit to Teatro was excellent. The service from start to finish was brilliant which included moving tables on our request without any issue, complimentary drinks for our anniversary and a knowledgeable waiter who advised us on wines and the food throughout the meal. The food itself was lovely and to a high standard, although desserts could have been a little better...... they were still nice and different just not to our tastes. Would definitely return and recommend to others."

  • "This was our 2nd time having the tasting menu, and it did not disappoint. We were warned by the server that next time, we should tell them when we book the reservation that we intend to have the tasting menu since there is a chance they might run out. We definitely come again. The food is beatifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. The liquid nitrogen ice cream has completely spoiled me from any other ice cream!"

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The quality of the food is poor. The price point is high given the quality of food. The staff display arrogance at times. The fruit flies and the dragon fly at our table were less than desirable. Our server tried to ignore our comments about the dragon fly. Calgary has many great restaurants . This is not one I would recommend. It is overrated!"

  • "Good food and ambience and extensive wine list. I would have liked a few more seafood and pasta options"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Had a nice evening at the restaurant. I had the pickerel, which although well presented was quite tasteless and disappointing. My partner had the scallops, which were very good. Had an excellent dessert and the wine selected was very good. Service was very good. All in all a good experience. I would go again but try something else for dinner"

  • "Went there for my bday dinner with my husband and it was exceptional. The hostess checked my coat and brought me a little table to put my purse on when she noticed it was on the floor. The minute the server, Deckland I believe, arrived he noticed the table was wobbly and fixed it right away without us mentioning anything. He started off with telling us the specials and also his recommendations. We both ordered what he recommended - cesasar salad to start (which they divided up on plates for us in advance), and I had the seafood lasagna (to die for, perfectly cooked seafood), and my husband had the shortrib stuffed pasta shells (can't remember the name) and he loved them. Go, you won't be disappointed."

  • "After a long winter, boy it was nice to sit on a gorgeous patio. It had the feel of sitting in a great restaurant in California or Palm Springs. Lunch was the normal Teatros wonderful, with great service. We'll be back lots this summer. My new favorite!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Teatro is definitely one of Calgary's top restaurants. It reminds me of a Parisian brasserie - only with better service :) Fantastic, fresh menu - I had the wild boar meatballs and calamari. My friend and I also enjoyed their creative dessert and cocktail menus. Everything was absolutely delicious! Definitely a place I will continue to come for special occasions, or even a cocktail before the theatre. I really appreciated that they asked if we were going to the theatre and ensured we were done our meal on time."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "We treated another couple to a pre-threatre dinner and anticipated a really good meal given Teatro's reputation and prices. The olive oil served with the bread tasted really green/young/bitter. Bread tasted better with butter. My wife's salad was misdescribed and lacked greens. I specifically asked for my lamb chops rare but were served medium (didn't complain because didn't have time for a replacement). My wife's short ribs and pasta was like - where's the food? More like a small appetizer for main course price. We won't be going back any time soon. "

  • "Teatro is generally reliable, but on Tuesday their daily fish special, skate, was a rubberized lump. I could only manage about three bites and my business colleague had less. When asked by the server if we enjoyed the meal, we told her the truth. She was gracious and, on her return, informed us that she had "waived the charge for your coffees." The meal was still $90 after gratuity, with no alcohol service. Would have expected a more meaningful gesture from Teatro, given how often I go there."

  • "My husband & I celebrated our anniversary at Teatro's - they had a nice private table/booth for us (as requested). Our server was incredibly helpful with his several suggestions for us throughout the night. We had the oysters to start - they were the best oysters either of us have ever had - super fresh & excellent condiments. He helped me choose my main dish, Cornish game hen with mushroom risotto - simply to die for. When my husband ordered the meatballs our server immediately suggested this wasn't a good choice & so my husband then choose the lamb, also an amazing meal. Both of our portions were huge! He then recommended a $16 scoop of specialty prepared caramel ice cream with sea salt - honestly best thing we've ever tasted in our life!"

  • "Had a wonderful 3-course lunch for only $25 which included a salad with lightly-seared tuna, a fish with a bean fricasee, and an amazing coconut panna cotta with passion fruit ice cream. Everything was so delicious that I decided to bring my husband there for a romantic lunch a couple weeks later...and once again, was delicious. The service was perfect both times and the atmosphere for lunch was bright and quiet. I love it at Teatro's for dinner, but now, I also highly recommend it for dinner."
