We had an adult birthday dinner here and did the chef's vegetarian tasting menu and wine pairing. The whole evening was phenomenal - exceptional food, discrete service and special ambiance. Not cheap by any means but for a very special occasion I would highly recommend it.

The food was delicious, our waitress was great. The sommelier pulled a bit of a bait and switch when it came to the wine but that was partly my fault for not asking about cost when he brought a different bottle.

We felt a little rushed through our tasting menu. The meal was very good but the dishes came out very fast with not much time in between dishes. In addition, we realized there was a substitution with the wine pairing without letting us know. It would have been nice to be made aware of this when we decided to do the wine pairing. Overall it was a fantastic meal, just a few comments!

Horrific service, and very disappointing food. Ordered our beverages, appetizers, and mains together and it took 2 hours!! Our drinks took a half hour, and we were never offered drinks again.. meat was burnt on the exterior, tough on the interior. Waited additional 45minutes to have plates cleared, and waitress was surprised we asked for the bill and wanted to leave as soon as someone graced our table with their presence. Horrible birthday dinner!! We didn’t want to order desert it was an embarrassment to bring our guests here. Worst dinning experience I’ve had unfortunately.

Food was absolutely delicious and the wine pairings went incredibly well with the food. Our servers were phenomenal, very attentative and a delight. Would recommend this place to anyone who love great food and great service.
Am definitely going back.

Our server provided exceptional customer service. She went above and beyond with her hospitality. She recommended two exceptional rosé, d’Astros and Whispering Angel. Our meals were deliciously prepared and were plated beautifully.

Thank you for a great start to the beginning of our night!

I've always wanted to try this restaurant! It is on my list to try in Calgary as I don't live in the city. I am a foodie and enjoy eating at upscale restaurants when I travel. We had a reservation as my friend had to return to work. We were greeted right away and seated. The male waiter came to our table and gave us water and menus and then disappeared for 10 min. WE had told him that we were in a hurry as well and stated the time my friend needed to be back at work. The meal was average, needed pepper badly, and he didn't return to the table until we were almost finished out meals. I would understand more if the restaurant was buzzing and full, but that was not the case. I might try again for supper maybe, but didn't have a great experience so not certain as there are so very many fabulous restaurants in Calgary. I was disappointed.

I have been a regular customer of Teatro for years and this visit was the poorest experience so far. The service was slow and sporadic. It took three attempts to get basic things like oil and balsamico. The duck breast was really tough, not suitable to serve. The s’mores dessert was hard and was espresso flavoured. Made no sense. The best dish was the celeriac purée with truffles. The fetuccini Nero was ok, but I’ve had better, elsewhere and at Teatro. The rest was pretty average. Not a good showing with really inattentive service.

I visited restaurant with co-worker for lunch and we loved it. I would not mind to come here with my husband and friends for my birthday. Foods were delicious, service is quick. Great restaurant in Downtown Calgary. For business lunch they have an express option for $25.00. We did not go for this option, but may try it next time, when it will be a healthier choice (did not want smoked bacon). For salt they offered sea salt from Vancouver. Overall foods tasted great. We ordered soup, one of the salads and chicken. Chicken and soup were delicious. I think we're coming back soon.

Really disappointed!! Server did not have time for our table. No one was engaging at all. Disappointed with the pasta and our deserts. My husband had water spilt on him and the only thing the Server could say to us was since we moved a chair closer to us so we could all hear each other, how she would have to reach over. Plus the manager did not seem to hear our concerns
Too bad we used to think this was a go to restaurant in the city

Went with family for nice dinner out. Waiter was ok but not to standard for a restaurant of this reputation. Had to look at his notepad for the specials and crudo selection. Slightly inattentive with our wine pouring.

Food presentation was excellent! Had to ask the waiter for fresh ground pepper otherwise he would not have brought it or even offered. The pork belly was very tough and salty. Rest of the ordered food was fine but nothing memorable. Definitely, the value was not there.

Space was amazing and staff friendly and pleasant!

A treat of a dinner last Saturday night. My husband was dining for the first time, I for the second, and we were both super impressed with our experience. The cocktails we chose were enticing, and well balanced, the wine was delicious and paired well with our entrees thanks to the aid of the sommelier. The food was awesome. Prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. Our server was friendly and personable and directed our evening smoothly and gracefully. We loved it here and plan to return much more frequently.
