A word from Tao Restaurant and Nightclub
Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 60,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge and nightclub. Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi.

Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar.

    Being that I was not familiar with Thai food and what to order, the waitress was very helpful and made very nice suggestions. Overall the food and drinks were amazing! The music playing was loud enough to enjoy but low enough that you can still make conversation. Very upbeat atmosphere! With dinner, you also get access to the nightclub free of charge for the night. This place is a must when visiting Las Vegas!

    Amazing restaurant, vibrant atmosphere, very attentive waiter that was happy to help with everything. Cocktails were delicious and the food was out of this world. We had the sushi and duck wraps to start both were outstanding and the beef and salmon as mains, apart from chewing on a chilli which was my own stupid fault the food was faultless. Would recommend to couples and groups, its quite loud (music was brilliant top female DJ) so maybe not so suitable for young families .

    The ambiance in this restaurant is breathtaking - truly a gorgeous and vibrant place! We had the sea bass - their signature dish - and even though we are not seafood people per se, it was AMAZING! It melted in our mouths and the glaze was just incredible! This is not a cheap meal by any means, but even at $100+ it was we worth it! Thank you Jeffrey for truly enhancing this dining experience!

    The best Peking duck I have ever had! Better than Hong Kong. The lobster wontons in a shiitake ginger broth was memorable. The shabu shabu was tasty but not at all like what I have had in Korea.

    Whenever I visit Las Vegas I dine at Tao Las Vegas. It is always a great experience because the food quality remains the same. It's a beautiful restaurant that is great for a romantic dinner (early evening) or a lively dining experience (late evening). If you want deliciously seasoned food this is the place to go!

    We had the pork pot stickers as well as the lobster and shrimp spring rolls. The spring rolls had large pieces of lobster and shrimp, not the bits that are typically in spring rolls. Both appetizers had great sauces. I had the crispy snapper for dinner and it was awesome. I thought the portions were consistent with the pricing. Our server had the best attitude and she really knew the menu. I will definitely go back!

    Celebrated our sons 18th Birthday here on a Sunday night. Not busy at all. Our group of 9 was seated immediately. The wait staff very attentive. Borderline overly attentive. They kept filling my son's Sprite with water. No biggie. For the price of the food the flavor was NOT there. The tempura was good but salty. My veggie bowl dish was plentiful but too peppery. The California king crab rolls were tasty but not enough for the price. It was a milestone birthday so we chalked it up to the experience. It was a cool place to dine, Just to say you've been there. One and done. We won't be back. Sorry.

    Dined here before. Good food and nice ambiance. Unfortunately, this time was not as nice. We showed up 10 minutes before our reservation and weren't seated for 45 minutes. Normally that would be overlooked if it wasn't for the fact that people without reservations were being seated before us. Hostess did give us a voucher for two drinks, but it was too little too late. If you are going to pay that much to dine in a nice restaurant, I don't expect such a poor first impression. Waiter was a first class guy.

    This place was hot and the food was as good as the hype! The menu clearly labeled the gluten free items and the server was knowledgeable about changes. I had the Singapore noodles which they made with tofu instead of chicken and shrimp for me. So good! Plenty of other options as well. My husband was a little annoyed that the dishes didn't come with rice, but I gave him some noodles, so he calmed down. Worth the price tag for a night!

    The food was very good but be prepared for the price! My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and it was over 200 - we had one bottle of wine, an order of rice to share, orange chicken and a steak. The waitress did bring out a dessert in honor of our anniversary which was very thoughtful. I would recommend this place for the experience and for a special occasion. Again, really good food just wanted to forewarn about the price.

    We love dining at TAO when we're in Vegas (and New York), but this experience was amazing. Since we were traveling, we brought my two-year-old daughter with us. The menu isn't overly kid friendly but the server and the chef went above and beyond. They made chicken nuggets special for her and brought her a side of rice to go with it. She LOVED them (I tried some too and they were excellent)!!! Thank you for reminding us why we love going to TAO!!!

    We had a wonderful time at this restaurant. The food was very good. The service was excellent. It was a very romantic place. We had an early reservations of 6:00. And it was a wonderful time to have a good relaxing dinner. As we were leaving the energy was going high level with noise and activity. So I would suggest an early reservations if you are looking for something more relaxing.

    Let the kitchen choose the food to share. Make sure they include the sea bass in skewers and pass everything around. Makes for an entertainment experience. Don't forget to get stamped to go upstairs to the vibrant bar... You go to the front of the line no matter when you arrive.

    Known nationally for the miso glazed sea bass, TAO didn't disappoint! But, in addition, they also have great small plates such as Lobster wanton and crunchy ahi tuna roll. Extremely high quality food! Gets a bit noisy since on a Friday night, most arriving after 8pm are headed to their night club later!

    The inside looks like the Buddha Bar in Paris France. Its Dark inside, so if you struggle to read the menu prepare to use your cell phone as a flashlight. We were a group of four; everyone shared and everyone loved every dish. Their signature sea bass was a tad to salty for me but very good.

    The short ribs and sea bass were amazing. The night started off great; food and service made this an impressive outing, until the end. Dinner is supposed to guarantee admission to the nightclub. Our server told us the girl who stamps hands for admission into the nightclub left early, so we would have to go to the hostess stand for the stamps. We'd just seen other tables being escorted directly to the club. We went to the hostess stand and asked for stamps. The hostess said she'd call someone. Ten minutes later I asked again for the stamp. She smirked and turned her back, got on her walkie talkie and laughed. After another ten minutes we left. This experience at the end of the evening diminished my perception of Tao.
