Such a beautiful restaurant. Have been there for both lunch and dinner. But the portions are very small....and I’m a senior. I find that by the time I get home I’m hungry.

We are new to Calgary and looking for a good restaurant to enjoy with visiting friends next month. Teatro was recommended to us as one of the best in Calgary but we didn't have a good meal there. Really expensive too. The presentation of the meals was very artistic but the quality of ingredients was disappointing. The appetizers and desserts appeared to be partially prepared ahead of time and had suffered in cold storage. Meat and fish was both over and under cooked. The au jus with the wild boar chop was oddly sweet. Fish had a bit of odour as though not totally fresh. Portions, with the exception of dessert, were small. Service was indifferent and off putting with the exception of the young lady serving bread and taking coats. Even the bread was not fresh.

We haven't been to Teatro in years but we chose to visit for our 20th anniversary. The service was impeccable and the food was presented well. Everything exceeded expectations and we even ordered dessert when we knew we were too full to continue.

Food and Ambience was great. Service was mediocre. We were there at 1:30pm on Friday for lunch. I watched our food sit under the heat lamp for 10 minutes before someone brought it over. With 3 servers and 4 tables I expected better service.

Teatro has been located in this historic sandstone Former Bank for 25 years. An authentic Italian menu, a daily rotisserie meat special, a comfy outdoor patio, and the best food ever.

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.

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.
