A huge thank you to Stephano and staff for creating an extra special evening. The champagne bottles came out perfectly, the staff was just as emotional as we were about our celebration and provided impeccable service. One never has to every worry about the exquisite food either. Thank you Teatro, you never disappoint!

Great environment albeit a bit loud due to it’s open design.
Service matches the price but the food came up short. Had the suckling pig - too cooked to enjoy.

Lots of other dining options with as good service and better food to recommend it as a “go to”

We had an exceptional supper prior to opening night of Billy Elliot at Arts Common. Their special was boar, which was cooked to perfection. Our group had halibut, pasta, steaks, desserts, you name it, we tried it. The sommelier Jen is a delight and full of great recommendations. Our group was only 6 people this time around but I have gone there as a couple, in a mid size and large group event, the staff there can handle any size group. You won’t regret going.

My friend and I enjoyed a business lunch at Teatro, where the service was excellent and the food delicious. The staff were attentive and sensitive to the fact that we had to get back to the office after lunch. The meal was fresh and elegant, and just the right size portions. The gluten-free options were not many but any selection at Teatro is always good. A great place to dine.

The experience was great and very memorable for our anniversary. All the female personnel were very kind and accommodating. The lone male waiter was not as much. He looks like he was just doing his job. But overall it was a wonderful experience.

We very much enjoyed the tasting menu with the "regular" wine pairing, which brought out some very nice pairings of good wines. The menu was a well thought out sequence of samples, some of which were complex and very interesting in their conception. Definitely worth revisiting, and recommending to friends who don't mind spending a reasonable amount for a very good food experience.

No kidding, one of the best meals I’ve had. Not lately...I mean ever. Was a seafood pasta with such a unique array of flavours. I always appreciate it when somebody else makes me something I can’t make myself. And totally nails it. So good!

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.
