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.

  • "My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary. We are country people, so we felt a little out of place in such a elegant restaurant. Serving sizes were small, I expected more for the price. The food was wonderful though. For two people, one drink each, our bill was around $120."

  • "Second time at Teatro, and we were not let down. Dinner and service were amazing! Still dreaming about the wine that was recommended to us by our terrific server. Thanks for a great night again!"

  • "Great service, delicious food. Patio was beautiful - wonderful to sit and enjoy the weather while dining. Nicole was a friendly and informative server. Very much enjoyed our evening. 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!"

  • "My husband and I went to Teatro for our Fifth Year Wedding anniversary. Our experience could not have been better. Food, service and ambiance all exceeded our expectations. Our server, Nicole, was engaging, knowledgable, and attentive without being smothering. We brought in our own wine -though they do have an amazing and extensive wine list of their own- and she made menu suggestions that paired perfectly. We started with the beef carpaccio, then had the beef short rib shells, lamb shoulder gnocchi and finished with the scallops. My husband is still talking about the scallops! They treated us to complimentary caramel ice cream made with nitrogen. We got to go up to the pass and watch while they made it. Best ice cream I've ever had."

  • "Restaurant knew exactly the clientele that typically dine there. How so you ask? My significant other recently received a pricey hand bag from me for her Birthday to add to her collection... when she was looking for a place to put it, the waiter automatically offered a 'handbag stool' to her in which she graciously accepted. One quick look around showed that all the other women with the high priced merchandise also had the stool. Great food and was not a hoity toity small portions as some restaurants attempt. There was even food taken in a Teatro cloth doggy bag. Definitely a place to take someone for a romantic evening or to celebrate. Price is on the steeper side but you will not be disappointed."

  • "We had an awesome meal, nice table, and I was happy to bring a client there, and she was happy! Great service too."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "Had the 8course tasting menu it was absolutely incredible best meal I have had in a long time. Still thinking about it... It was 10 out of 10!!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "We've been going to Teatro from the beginning, over 15years. It has managed to maintain its overall high standards over time."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "we had a lovely evening enjoying the food and ambience"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Went for lunch and had the 3 for $25 special. Excellent food choices, beautiful presentation, great ambiance."
    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."
