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.

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.

The venue, menu and service has been consistent since the restaurant opened. The sommelier was able to recommend two excellent bottles of wine within our price range. The meal presentations were great and appetizing and the portions were appropriate for the price. Teatro's is a great place for two or larger parties because the noise level is low enough that everyone gets heard.

The staff took extra care of us. Moved us to warmer section, picked the good drinks for us, fun but unobtrusive. And the food was excellent. We had their express lunch and it was nothing what you’d associate with express. Exquisite overall experience.

If the weather is very cold and wintry outside you might find your feet get very cold in this restaurant. Even if you sit away from the entrance doors.
Food is great and ambience otherwise totally lovely.

Seems to have gone down hill since the last time I was there which was a few years ago. Food was only okay. Pretty much the same service as usual but the place seems to have lost the panache from before.

Not what I would have expected from what is considered to be a top-tier Mediterranean restaurant. The building is beautiful, but the decoration inside (lighting, furniture, etc.) leaves much to be desired. The service was excellent, although a rather large mistake was made on our bill. The atmosphere was very noisy. Overall, the restaurant reminded me of a somewhat quieter Bank I'm not sure what Teatro is really aiming for...fine dining, casual/cool, or a place for executives to socialise? Just seemed a bit discordant to me.

Our entrees were very late being served, causing us to have to eat very quickly in order to get to concert. This has not happened here before. My green salad wasn't too special, my wife's Caprese salad was excellent. My pork chop was very good, but accompaniments were skimpy.

Not as good as we would've hoped for the money.

This is a great Italian style restaurant. The food is made with real ingredients such as olive oil or butter. Food preferences/allergies are easily accommodated. The service was quick and attentive . The atmosphere was perfect as you can have a conversation without shouting and noisey enough so that you can’t hear your surrounding tables conversations. It is excellent fine dining and I would recommend eating at for any special occasion as well the gourmet food experience.

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!
