I'm not impressed with this restaurant. It was mine and my husband's 10 yr anniversary.

The food was not good. There was a hair in my appetizer and we were literally swarmed with bugs all over the place. It was disgusting.. my husband literally spent the entire meal trying to kill them. And of course the more we ate, the worse it became.

Also, it was absolutely DISGUSTINGLY hot.. like I put my hand on my chest and it came out soaking wet. And here we are, paying $200.. for what? for a VERY uncomfortable atmosphere and food that was not good...

Will not come back.. not something I would expect from a high end restaurant.

This is one of the best restaurants in Calgary. The service is top notch, the food is amazing, and the ambiance is beautiful. The only area they could do to upgrade is their washrooms. They are a bit old and don't match the same elegance of the restaurant.

We were looking forward to our meal at Teatro and it was a big let down. An ‘elevated dining experience’ it was not. The ambience and service was good, the food was mediocre at best. Had a much better meal at Klein/Harris down the street the night before. Will not be returning to Teatro.

The chef’s tasting menu was unfortunately nothing resembling the experience that it used to be. In the past it was unforgettable and incredible, whereas last week it reminded me of a New Years or Valentine’s Day set menu that is overpriced and underwhelming. This left me wishing that I had chosen somewhere else for my 40th birthday dinner. The service was the worst that I have experienced at Teatro. This has been my favourite restaurant for many years, and I was unpleasantly surprised to have such a disappointing experience there.

Teatro's is one of our favourite restaurants. A great wine list, mostly quite pricey. Great selection of starters & appetizers as well as entrees. The halibut special was excellent... priced at $42.00. This Sunday evening our service was "fair" at best as it was extremely slow. As a note generally service is much better than it was tonight.

We celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary at Teatro with friends from out of town, and everything was delightful.
The food was impeccable, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was alive.
We will certainly return.

We stopped in for dinner prior to an event at the Jubilee. The service was superior, food is amazing (had the salmon and halibut dishes), and it’s a great location for pre-concert dining!

It was quite quiet, and service reflected that. Attentive but not intrusive. Possibly the best boulevardier I’ve ever had (Tip: Have them use Michters Sour Mash), and the good was excellent. Great wine list.

Excellent food. Even though we were away from others it was too noisy to carry on a conversation. We were constantly leaning forward to listen. Crumbs were not scrapped off the table as I would have expected at a restaurant of this quality. Portion size was adequate but not generous. Overall the 4 course meal left us full.

The food was delightful. I went in with my mom for their Mother’s Day brunch tasting menu. We got a very nice greeting from one of the managers. The ambiance was so pretty, we sat somewhere where we could see the kitchen as it has a very beautiful open kitchen concept.

I booked thru open table and one of the questions was what is the occasion. It was Mothers Day but i also noted that it was my daughters birthday. The birthday was not recognized by staff or manager on duty. As for the value, when you are paying $250.00 plus for brunch, one would think that there would be more options available. Sorry but the quantity of food versus the bill did not add up. We have always saved our Teatro experience for special occasions and had considered it to be our go to when it was a high celebration so this was a major let down.

Best food of my life. Never before have I experienced a spring thaw and a summer campfire in food form. Such creativity and flavour, combined with the ambience, made for a perfect birthday dinner. The chef's selection was outstanding.

Great ambiance, attentive and experienced waiters, great decor with high ceilings and lots of room at the table. Food was outstanding particularly the Halibut main course. Wines were reasonably priced and total cost was well within (below) expectations for the atmosphere and quality of service. Our waiter Darren was great and please say thanks to him from us.

The food quality was mediocre - undercooked calamari, over cooked fish, and bland risotto. Not worth it, even for reasonable business lunch prices. The service was painfully slow, despite having a reservation with a party of 3. It took an hour for our entrees to arrive, with no explanation given until requested of our water. I cannot reccomend Teatro after this experience.

After years of wanting to dine at this restaurant, I decided to treat my sister. She had very high expectations and it exceeded not only her expectations but the rest in our group as well. The food was presented beautifully and our server was exceptional. He was quick to make our table feel comfortable and welcome. We really appreciated his prompt service and easy mannerism. As for the food, it was a 10 for the majority of our group. I will be returning for another wonderful dining experience soon!

Ii was a dress up date night for my wife and I without our 2 yr old, and we had only been to Teatro once before about 2 years ago, pre Theatre w friends. Had always wanted to get back and after a year away from Calgary we were delighted to get a table Saturday evening. lt was the perfect dining experience, great ambience, romantic lighting, attentive wait staff, creative food options, superbly cooked and presented menu options. We have it down as our fav for special occasions.
