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.

    Our visit to Tao was outstanding. This was our first time dining at Tao but were with friends who had been there before. It was because of their recommendation that we choose to dine at Tao. We loved it! Service was excellent and the food was delicious. We would recommend Tao to anyone visiting Las Vegas. We can't wait to come back again. Thank you for an excellent dining experience.

    Tao is a must when visiting Vegas! The walk-in time around 9pm was long so I'd recommend reservations if you want to go late. Great ambiance. Wait-staff friendly and helpful. The STS roll and the Chilean Sea Bass were amazing! Will return if I'm lucky enough to return to Vegas.

    Had a great night at Tao. Service by Henry was nothing less than extraordinary. He knew two of us were celebrating birthdays and suggested that he order for us , which was great. All courses were outstanding and the food just kept coming! Highly recommended dinner treat on the strip. We were able to hit the nightclub afterwards with no cover, which is another experience unto itself. Great spot and would love to go again!

    The restaurant was able to accommodate a group of 14 at last minute notice. We ended up having 22 total people. They gave us a semi private room which turned out to better than expected. Fantastic service, server was a pro and took everyone's choices for food preferences and ordered a spread that was perfect. Thank you Open Table and Tao for a fun evening!

    This is the second time that we have eaten at Tao and it was better than the first time. The waiter TJ was so attentive and made excellent recommendations. He is a total keeper as a waiter! The fried rice, sushi, ribs and cocktails were delicious! But, the Chilean Sea Bass was to die for. We should have ordered three! Still dreaming about that one. If you are in Las Vegas - this is a MUST place to dine! Can't wait to return to Vegas!

    My wife, her sister and I were able to walk right in and get seated with no wait. Having an early reservation helps with that, but we had a 7pm show later in the evening. The drinks came out quickly after they were ordered and our waters were never less than half full throughout the night. The pork potstickers are always a good starter here. They had a special sushi roll that night (i forgot the name of it), but we almost had to order another one for the birthday girl because it was so good and fresh! One entree i will order again and again is the short ribs plate, simply amazing how the meat just fell apart. The giant fortune cookie for the birthday girl was a nice ending for our meal. Will visit again on our next Vegas visit!!

    Went there - and made a CRAZY request, which Eli the General Manager carried out amazingly. The food was divine, the waiting staff there is amazing. Our server TJ had great recommendations as well. I could not have asked for a better way to end our last night in Vegas. When I come back to Vegas, I'll definitely be visiting Tao again. The prices, for what you get are not bad at all. Food was absolutely incredible. Great vibe, great people, and great food. A+++ all around.

    Everything was great. We had a reservation and arrived early. They seated us right away. Our server was very friendly and was happy to answer any questions. The food was great, especially the Peking duck spring rolls. We ordered smaller items so that we could try a variety of menu items. Everything was very tasty! We both had a sake flight with our meal. Would definitely go back again the next time we are in town.

    I have always enjoyed getting an appetizer here in the bar area but I didn't realize until we ate in the dining area that so many of the dishes are very sweet and have similar flavor profiles. We dined with a friend family style and after 3 or 4 dishes, I had to tell the server to find us something that was more savory as these were too sweet. He asked the chef and they brought out the wagu tempura roll which wasn't sweet but lacked flavor. The squab lettuce rolls were really good though, and not as sweet as the 5 spice boneless pork ribs which tasted like they were marinated in sugar for a week. The lobster wontons were delicious.

The food is excellent and we had a really enjoyable experience. Our waitress even comped us in to the night club which meant we didn't have to queue or pay.

    This is a very noisy, dark hot spot. It's a vibrant scene and lots to look at. Was excited to bring my 7 friends who had never been. However, our reservation was at 9:30 and we weren't even seated until 10:20. The hostess was rude and unforgiving about the wait. Once we got seated, our waitress was friendly but slow. We didn't even end up eating until 11:20 - with a 9:30 reservation!!! All in all, I can't recommend this to others due to the ridiculous wait and slow service. Food was amazing but I wouldn't go back again. Two of the guys we were with even went to grab a slice of pizza while we waited and were still starving by the time we ate. Disappointing experience all around!

    I had a great dinner! Our server was excellent. We had a group of 8 (incl a few with food allergies) and he was very knowledgeable about all our needs. Nailed each and every meal going above and beyond to alter meals where needed. As always, food and ambience were perfect. My only complaint would be that we didn't get seated until an hour after our reservation...but they resolved the issue with us and apologized. Just make sure you don't plan to see a show if you're eating here first! :)

    We were greatly disappointed in Tao. I have been to Tao in the past and have great experiences but not this time. The service was sub par (in defense of our waiter they were way understaffed....on a Fri night with a huge convention in town). The raw sushi was not of great quality and all the rolls were awful. They were bland and the rice seemed stale and pre-made like a take out sushi place. This was our only poor meal all week in Vegas, the sushi at Sushi Samba and Nobu blew Tao away. Many different show attendees and colleagues at at Tao and all were sharing the same disappointment. This place has definitely seen better days.
