Opera Room; best site for wedding reception!
We had our wedding reception at Teatro in the Opera room, with around 50 guests and it was perfect! The staff was very friendly, the food amazing, we were allowed to have a DJ and used the TV hidden behind the big picture frame to show a surprise video from friends and family who couldn't attend the wedding. The food and beverage minimum spend was also very reasonable compared to a lot of others restaurant/reception venues who would charge you how much they normally would make in a day if they didn't have to close for your event. 10/10 would recommend Teatro for any type of events, we are going back again for another friend's wedding in a week!Sent on 29/08/2021

Our New Year's Eve Wedding
Our experience with Teatro Group Weddings was amazing! We hosted an intimate and private dinner in the Opera Room and then a cocktail reception with canapés at Royale. The teams at both locations were extremely easy to work with and made our wedding planning a breeze. I can't say enough about the food and beverage options as well, as someone who doesn't eat meat or fish we are offered custom canapés at Royale to suit these needs. We even had a custom cocktail created for both my husband and myself for our reception. Brittany and Carrie made planning very easy and were very helpful when it came to making sure our day went smoothly. We cannot say enough about Royale as a location as well as the staff. The recent renovations have made the space even more beautiful than before. Minimal decorating was needed due to the abundance of flowers and candles already there. Our guests said they had a fabulous time and enjoyed the food and drinks very much. It was super special to ring in the new year as newlyweds with our closest friends and family with us, such a fun party!!!Sent on 14/01/2020

Choosing Teatro as our Wedding venue seemed like a no brainer, as we already knew the space was beautiful, the food delicious and the service impeccable. But even knowing all of this we could never have imagined how incredible our experience would be planning our wedding at Teatro.Sent on 03/11/2019
The event coordinator, Brittany Rondeau, was a complete dream to work with! She took our vision and turned into a beautiful reality. She was flexible, accommodating and such a calming presence during the mayhem of wedding planning. She was organized, professional and seemed genuinely excited to help us to plan everything, always trying to find the best for us while staying within our budget and sticking to our vision.
On the day of our wedding everything went off without a hitch! We had so many guests tell us that the food was incredible, that the Teatro staff were amazing, always there to refill a drink and make the overall experience better and that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. We didn’t have to think about anything except having a good time. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and Teatro helped to make that happen!!

Amazing food and beautiful venue!
My husband and I got married at Teatro and it was the PERFECT venue for us. We were planning 6 months out and fortunately Teatro was available on a Saturday night in August. It was just simple perfect: the food was AMAZING, the venue was beautiful, and all my guests (~80, mostly from out of town) where very impressed and happy. The whole staff was very attentive and responsive during the planning process. Brittany, the event coordinator, proposed the decor from what I envisioned, handled all the rentals and made sure the decor was perfect. It was a beautiful surprise when I walked to our reception. She also has an excellent vendor list including photographer, flowers, DJ, etc. We used a few from their recommended list. We also used their sister bakery (Alforno) for our wedding cake. My husband and I are very happy we had our wedding at Teatro.Sent on 04/11/2018
