Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice theater with Classical European design. I saw a performance where most of the people were old dressed in Rock ‘n’ Roll outfits.

I guess the obvious answer was the ballet performance we saw but in addition it was a pleasure to spend the evening in such a beautiful theatre. As with many places there weren't a lot of seats in the bar areas but that didn't matter. We wanted to say a particular thank you to Kaj who is one of the doormen and who went out of his way to get us a taxi.

I just love this theatre, it's special everytime. Very little leg room & the bar / snacks are very expensive though.

I've only been here a handful of times but every single time was special. The architecture, the seats, the atmosphere, the location. We're very lucky this was retained after the earthquakes.

Have enjoyed many shows here over the years and last night was the first time we were in the gallery. Front row seats with a great view over the stage, would happily book up there again. Really beautiful theatre with comfortable seats - there are toilets up there and a bar although Id skip the expensive drinks - water if freely available.

Wonderful Theatre lovingly restored since our earthquake 'season' ,great ambience . Only bleat I may have is that the seats are too close together,a bit like cattle class on an aeroplane. Despite this I am looking forwards to the next concert there.

A stunning looking theatre, absolutely gorgeous detail inside. Far bigger than I realised it was until I arrived and found out from a staff member it'll comfortably seat 1100 with the two circles open.
Staff were very friendly, informative and accomodating. The seating is comfortable and arranged in an offset style to maximise viewing and reducing the possibility you'll be stuck behind a tall person restricting your view.
The bathrooms are very nice, well maintained and clean at all times I visited them

Isaac Theatre Royal is impressive to look at from the outside. Did not have time to explore inside or watch a performance. Certainly worth a photo stop.
