Teatro Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This is probably the most stunning resta ...
This is probably the most stunning restaurant in Calgary. Very central and convenient for business meetings or Arts Commons and Olympic Plaza. We had a wonderful booth where we could talk, and the service was prompt and discreet. I went for the three-course business lunch for $25. It started with devilled eggs, a traditional meal, but well done. My colleague had shrimp and prawn salad due to allergies, specially made for her. I had a delicious lamb ragu on rigatoni, and a festive orange pudding. All in all, a great meal, and felt very pampered.

I took my friend's daughter there for her 16th bday, I did notify ahead of time that this was a bday and that one diner was gluten free. When we got there the table for us had been given away which was not really a big deal because the restaurant was empty but the other table was a better spot. I was informed that the market fish and chicken was out which were apparently my gf options. I did not worry about it though because I was taking the bday gal out and this was her pick and she was excited about her options. The waitress told me I could do the ceasar salad and add shrimp/scallops to it and was that ok. I said sounds good and it was the only option being presented anyway lol. Then she came back because the dressing was not gf so said she could give me salad greens with a vinaigrette. I said well if that's all I have let's do it. I also ordered the olives for the table as an appy in case the salad was not enough food. She asked if she should bring them out first and I said yes please. So the olives came out with the food lol. The salad was pretty tasty really and good portion of added shrimp and scallops. Her seafood lasagna looked great and she said it was delish. I ordered her the tiramisu for dessert and it came out with the happy bday chocolate (nice presentation) and she loved it. They brought me a spice cake on the house which was really sweet but I cannot eat it, it isn't gf. So all in all I would not recommend this restaurant for the price and limited options. Great location too but there are so many options for great restaurants with many options and better service. Maybe a business lunch would be good if you do not have a gf diner because they are kind of behind the times here with not being able to accommodate. Q Haute and Ox and Angela have some of the best bread in the city and is gf, try there if you have a gf diner. You will never be disappointed!

Great service. Great food. Great ambiance. Over many years Teatro has been a go-to destination for special occassions, family events, and pre-theatre. I love how the the restaurant has been integrated so beautifully into an exquisite historical building.

My wife and I recently enjoyed another memorable chefs tasting with premium wine parings last weekend. Their somm is very knowledgeable and again selected a very well paired lineup to go with the chefs inspirations. This place doesn't disappoint. Everyone should treat themselves once in a while to the tasting with premium parings and remember what we all work so hard day to day for!

I have not been to teatro for quite some time. There are so many great places in Calgary now. We eat out often and I was excited to go back to teatro as it has been a staple of the Calgary foodie scene for almost 3 decades.
Firstly, the food was marvellous! In this regard we were not disappointed at all. Our server however was well below what we believe a night at teatro is worth. She seemed rushed, disengaged and flat.
The support staff was impeccable as well, wine service was spot.
Would I go back, of course but not right away. There are so many wonderful options in Calgary.

Fabulous as always...I just keep on returning for the mushroom risotto and have been happily making way through the menu. We had special dietary requests and a diner who had to leave early...everything was dealt with graciously. Another lovely evening!

My husband had the pork chop which he said was good but nothing exceptional. I ordered the duck breast (I adore Magret de Canard which is so wonderful in the Dordogne) but I did not think the presentation was attractive or appealing as it was 3 big chunks on the plate. The jus de pomegranate was almost nonexistent so did not add anything to the rather tasteless duck breast. It was a disappointment.

Love the room!!! beautiful! service was good too. I was not happy when not informed of not having a specific liqueur and giving us a substitute. They could have given the substitute, but LET us know! also, We had to pour our own wine ... it wasn't busy, i think they just kind of forgot about us for a little while?

This was a wonderful choice for our 1 year of dateing, and having dairy free options was perfect for my date as we both had something we could eat. Wine was good, our table was perfect and I think it will be a night we both will remember for time to come. :)

We had an outstanding lunch at Teatro. The staff was friendly and professional and the wine was sensational. If you havn't tried the new menu yet I would encourage you to get there soon. An old favorite has turned over a new leaf and we LOVED it!

While the food was "excellent" the price for excellent far exceeds what dining of equal quality will cost elsewhere. Worth a trip once to satisfy curiosity but A return trip is unlikely simply because equal quality is easily available for for a more reasonable price in more accessible locations.
This is not to say we did not enjoy our time there and the service is exemplary with the staff being both attentive and unobtrusive.

I was very excited to go to this restaurant. The interior is simple but classic.
The atmosphere good. There is a little bit of noise coming from the open kitchen, it may be a nuisance to some people.
The service was excellent. The menu a little bit limited. The food was very tasty but not worth the price. The portions vere extremely small for the price asked. Overall I felt a little bit robbed, I was expecting more (I don't mean just the portion). For a historic building it's not enough. I wouldn't go back anytime soon.

The service and food was great!
The staff appears to be knowable regarding food and wine which adds to the enjoyment of the meal and provides a pleasant ambiance.
Well worth the visit particularly for special occassions.

I wouldnt normally go to an Italian restaurant to have a low carb meal, but easily found great low carb options (lamb chops) and the restaurant easily substituted risotta for seasonal vegetables.
The waitress we had was entirely professional and ensured we were on time to an event we were attending while providing just the right amount of attention to our table.
This was another great experience at Teatro!

We had an early dinner here before a concert at the Jack Singer. Loved this restaurant! First class service with all members of the wait staff working the entire room. All needs were met before they were even anticipated. The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. So much care and attention taken. For a special occasion or a memorable date night, Teatro is a wonderful choice!

Great restaurant for a lovely evening out. Our waitress was especially pleasant. We sat in a quiet corner near the entrance. It was cold. The risoto was nice. The lasagnia was delicious served on a hot pan. It had scallops,prawns, lobster and pasta. Mouth watering. Stayed hot till the end of the meal.
