Horrible- as younger girls not from around town, we were treated as children, and not as paying adult customers. We were served cold food, shoved to a table in the far back by the kitchen, when it was a very slow lunch hour and there were lots of open tables. When asking questions about the menu they seemed annoyed to have to serve us, and we were only checked on when asked for drinks and while dropping off the food.

I really was wowed by our first visit to Teatro, in celebration of our 2nd wedding anniversary. The venue is gorgeous - it appears to be an old bank with high ceilings and beautiful copper, marble and iron accents. The food was outstanding - seafood tender and light, in-house tomato sauce tangy, eggplant not greasy, mushrooms on toast wonderfully flavored and the lasagna noodles were like shortbread! Cocktails were also very interesting. Service was good. We'll definitely be back!

First I chose your restaurant as a special place for a second date. My food was cold. It was obvious early on in the evening and recognized by our server, she told us to take out time and enjoy, that my date and I were in no hurry Saturday night. I have been coming to Teatros for about 15 years and I come for the food first and the ambiance and service second. My fish special, which was cold, was very disappointing. I did not say anything to the waitress because I had boasted about Teatro's to my date and did not want to ruin the evening. Nor did I ask him about his main as I was afraid to hear his response. He loved his calamari appetizer.
I however was very disappointed in my meal, it did taint my experience. Your staff were elegant and attentive as always.

The food was very good. The hostess was pleasant but seemed somewhat surprised when we arrived for our reservation and there seemed to be some confusion over where our table would be. Our server was not what we have come to expect of Teatro. Teatro servers are normally professional but quite friendly and relaxed. Our server was, honestly, a bit snotty. I have a food allergy. I asked if the tasting menu was suitable for me or if any changes were possible. He just responded with, "Well, I wouldn't go with that then". If the chef feels that a menu should not be changed for food intolerances, that is absolutely fine. However, Teatro is usually most accommodating, so I found it odd that he did not offer to check or did not just say that the chef did not recommend any changes to the tasting menu. When I selected other items from the menu, I had to ask him to please check that they were suitable for me. He did not offer to check. Definitely not the level of service I have experienced every other time I have been to Teatro.

I was pleasantly pleased how reasonable the lunch cost. I feel I get ripped off often by restaurants that just don’t care. The chicken was a amazing, so was the service ...just became one of my top business lunch locations.

Teatro has a special location and ambiance that makes it a special night out experience. What falls short is the food value. My expectation for a restaurant like this is that the food should not be just good but great. Teatro falls short in this area. For its high prices and expectations that go with that the food was a to to expectations.

Two bad things about this restaurant - 1. If you sit in the centre part of the dining room, every time the door to the restaurant opens, a lot of freezing cold air blows right through your table - very unpleasant (this would only happen in winter). 2. I had the pork and it was dry and tasteless - very disappointing for what I thought would be a great dinner out.

A bit disappointed with our experience this year on our anniversary. We are usually so well taken care of, a beautiful table right by the kitchen, some acknowledgment of our anniversary a wonderful desert on the house for coming back over the last 8 years for our special day. Unfortunately this year we were stuck in a corner at a basic table - no ambiance. No special welcome or acknowledgement. It was a bit of a let down after so many wonderful visits. Not sure what happened but it certainly didn’t feel special in any way this year.

We have always enjoyed going to Teatro so decided to book it for Valentine's Day. We went with the 4 course set menu. I had the Go Fly a Kite cocktail to drink which was delicious.

Our starter was elk which I hadn't tried before but I really enjoyed. Then we had the cod with gnocchi and then the veal which was both tasty.

Dessert was a tres leches cake which was ok but tasted a bit like birthday cake and wasn't too special. The sorbet that came with it was really nice.

Overall, we loved the meal but the portions were a bit small so we weren't completely full. We know that in general though, Teatro portions are generous so it didn't put us off.

Took my girlfriend here for Valentines Day and we had a wonderful experience. From the hostess helping us with our jackets and remembering us when we left, to our server being comfortable joking around with us while still remaining professional, to everyone there working as a team to ensure we had a great experience. The food was incredible and the wine pairings were perfect. This was my first time at Teatro and I would love to spend another evening here soon, and will definitely be returning next V-Day.
