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!

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!!!

Wedding Review

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.

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!!

Gorgeous Venue

We held our small (20 guest) wedding in the private Opera Room at Teatro restaurant. The space was gorgeous, the food was amazing! The serving staff were wonderfully attentive.

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.

Teatro Opera Room - Amazing Venue and Excellent Service

Brittany and the staff at Teatro went above and beyond our expectations to make our wedding day special. The Opera Room was a wonderful, intimate setting for a smaller wedding and we were able to have both the ceremony and reception in the space. We were admittedly not the most organized couple leading up to the day, but they turned our limited instructions and a few boxes of decorations and flowers into something amazing.

The food was great and the staff made sure the wine glasses were always full! The food portions for the plated dinners were not the biggest (we did a 3 course), but that was easily made up for in quality and presentation. For bigger appetites, you may want to add a course, do a buffet, or have a few additional appetizers.

Overall a truly great experience and we highly recommend Teatro!

Wonderful Experience!

We had a small wedding in The Opera room (53) and it was absolutely perfect. I would recommend anyone looking to have a small, intimate wedding with amazing food, phenomenal service and a great atmosphere (we danced until the wee hours of the morning) - look at The Opera room. We were truly looked after from first viewing to final bill. Highly recommend!

We held our NYE wedding and reception at Teatro, and were blown away by the service, function, and staff. The venue, itself, is naturally beautiful, the staff is extremely dedicated and excited, and the food is incredible. The event coordinator, Brittany, takes care of every detail that you can imagine, and is in your corner from day 1. We could not speak more highly of this venue, and the people who made our day so special.

We were so excited to book our wedding at Teatro's Opera Room but it was a very disappointing experience. I was told further information about menu selections would require us to place our deposit. Upon placing our deposit, we were told we could have a non-alcoholic beverage for our toast but the details were not shared with what our options. When finalizing what our options were, we were only given 1 and I had to inquire myself from the menu about a soda that could be made. I had confirmed the function details for 2 dietary restrictions and was concerned this would not be taken seriously so I had emailed the coordinator twice to double check and she reassured me that there would not be a problem. This was important for us as we were making our menu selections because I did not want to place our guests in an uncomfortable position where they wouldn't be able to eat what was on the menu. My vegetarian guest at my table was served pork in their salad. I stopped the server to notify them of this error and reminded the server that our other guest for religious reasons cannot have pork and even pointed him out. I learned later that this was missed. As the bride, I had many other stressors and I did not realize my vegetarian guest ordered from the menu (non-vegetarian meal) and did not eat her meal. I emailed both the manager and event coordinator to notify them of this issue and was told that it was ultimately up to guests to confirm allergies/dietary restrictions when asked by the server. I was told that "we do not know who the guest of concern is based on a name alone". I had given the names and even pointed out this initial error to stop it from happening again. We had 1 server and she did not ask about dietary restrictions and only asked about allergies. For a restaurant serving a party of less than 30 this is unacceptable. I think the seriousness of dietary restrictions were not respected and placed our guests in an uncomfortable situation to speak up. We had rented coupe glasses and did not finish counting them at the end of the night when they were given back to us. Upon returning these items we learned we were missing 2. I think the biggest issue was that covid proof of vaccination is required and I was told it would be checked by staff. We had 1 server and 1 bartender. I was asked by my guests who to show their covid proof of vaccination and had to personally seek out staff to check. During dinner service, we had strangers entering from the doors as the doors we not locked after all our guests arrived and I had to go lock the door myself. I did not even think that this would be an issue. I'm not sure why the level of service was so lacking for us. The positive is that the space is beautiful and they were flexible with us having an indoor ceremony as we had a change of plans due to the weather. I was so happy to book with Teatro and thought it would be a lovely place to celebrate our anniversaries to come but unfortunately after this experience we won't be celebrating here ever again.

Teatro Opera Room - Excellent Food, Wine, Organization, and Service

I had the opportunity to book Teatros Opera Room for my wedding reception of 40 people and the entire experience was smooth and pleasant!

From the beginning, dealing with Teatros Events Manager Brittany Rondeau to the service received at dinner it went very smoothly and everyone that I dealt with and served my guests and me were very helpful and communicative.

The space was beautiful and nicely private, the food was amazing, and the bartenders kept a very good eye on my more exuberant guests during the open bar.

I highly recommend Teatros for its excellent food, wine, organization and service.
