Teatro is one of those few places that delivers “the full experience”. From decor, to service, to food, and ambience, Teatro is truly a valued part of Calgary’s culinary scene. Starters and mains were on point and presentation was wonderful. Dessert was perfect to share and provided the perfect finale to a very memorable meal.

Wonderful experience in a new era of COVID-19.
All meals were excellent and enjoyed by all. In particular we loved the housemade sausage for the appetizer. Wow!!

The food was excellent but the service really put it over the top. The hostess was warm and efficient, our server was attentive and friendly and the sommelier was over the top - he also came by multiple times to chat and suggested other restaurants to visit now that they are slowly reopening.
Will definitely be back and can’t wait to see the rooftop patio this summer!

Really enjoyed our meal, service and the environment. We had the chefs menu of six courses and everything was excellent except we felt the desert choice, and the quality of the desert was substandard compared to the other 5 courses. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this restaurant.

We came for the YYC Food and Drink Expo. The experience was phenomenal. The food was amazing an a very fancy meal, and the sommelier picked us out fabulous wine pairings to go with it. For the price of this prixe fixe menu, it was well worth the trip.

Teatro was a good restaurant. It was our first time there and we were there for the YYC Food and Drink Experience. We enjoyed the Gourmet Five Course tasting menu. When we arrive for our reservation the door was locked which was a little unfortunate since it was cold outside. The restaurant was a little chilly and as more reservations arrived patrons were clustered in one area. So to begin our experience was a little unsettling.

Our waitress Kat quickly uplifted our mood and we order drinks and our meal. Kat brought us hot water and another staff member worked on one of the heat register. The restaurant filled up quickly making the seating feel a little more balanced.

Our drinks came quickly and we excellent. Food also soon arrived as each course was very modest however the flavour and quality was good. The value of the experience was less than we’ve enjoyed at other participating restaurants. However the meal was good and we did enjoy our time at Teatro. Kat our waitress was exceptional.

Took my fiancé here for her birthday and from the moment we were seated the experience was exquisite. The food, from appetizer to shareable side to the main course was extraordinary. My fiancé ordered the mushroom risotto, and the flavor was beyond words. I ordered the ribeye and it was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The wine list was extensive and we found a lovely bottle of Pinot Noir that fit our price point. We capped it off with a very nice dessert shared between us. I also want to mention that the server was absolutely attentive and did not hesitate to ensure that we were well looked after. We will be back.

We went to Teatro for the YYC Restaurant week. Service was very nice, we had a great table where we got to see the service counter as the food was being plated, which I enjoyed. We had the wine pairing for 65$ and the set menu for 65$. The first course was beautiful but lacked flavor, the second course was delicious and perfectly cooked , third course was also good, but rice was slightly undercooked. For the main we all chose the beef, the sauce was incredible steak was cooked very well and the puree was delicious, but the potatoes were bland and cold. The dessert was light fresh and a great end to the meal. We loved the experience but felt that the meal fell short of our expectations for this restaurant.

I came for the Aperitivo (happy hour) and stayed for the Tasting Menu with wine for dinner. Wonderful, young but mature- professional staff, host and hostess...

The staff actually know the menu and can speak well to each item. Just a wonderful experience, if you are hesitating because of the iffy reviews of late. Breathtaking beautiful space when you walk in, matched with a wonderful fine dining experience. Thank you!

I have personally eaten all over world. And for the dollar value of the meals they were subpar at best.

I ordered the ribeye steak which in my opinion is an easy item to cook. It tasted warmed up. No exterior bbq char locking in flavours . And my vegetables were burnt.

Service was the only thing that saved this restaurant for me. I would not definitely would not return to this restaurant

Teatro has a good atmosphere given the location and architecture but it has declined in my view. I will not be coming back for a long time. The menu is uninspiring and the service was uninterested. It looked like our server was avoiding us — or their were inappropriately staffed but the restaurant was not full. The effect was the same. For every order we had to wait long! We finally had to leave the table and go after the server to ask for the bill.
