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.

    Tao was amazing! The sushi was fantastic. They were happy to create a custom request. Our server was very attentive and engaging. The atmosphere was great - it was the perfect end to our week in Vegas. Male sure you leave room for the banana fosters crispy bread pudding. It's to die for!

    Great Food & Great Service, went to Tao on a busy Saturday night, we got a nice welcome and we got seated at our table early. Our waitress was really friendly, helpful and attentive. 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! :)

    The food was outstanding - we shared the sea bass and several sushi rolls and all were very good. The ambiance was good but the noise level was very high so it was hard to hear everyone at our table. We'd go again in a heartbeat. Love it!

    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.

    Food was pretty good. Appreciated the service and attention from the wait staff. We have multiple food allergies so it was nice that the server took the time to make sure we all got something we could enjoy. And the ability to go to the club afterwards was amazing. Would suggest streamlining the process though to avoid having to go up and down the stairs so many times.

    Sorry but it was awful. Made our reservation for 9:15 and checked in at 9:15. Waited AN HOUR to be seated!! It was awful! Although the hostesses were very nice and offered us a drink at the bar it was very unacceptable! That is the entire reason you make the reservation to not have to stand around forever! Would never recommend.

    Like so many other Las Vegas satellite restaurants, the food here is not quite as good as Tao in New York, but we make it a point to have dinner here every time we are in Las Vegas. Service and ambiance are excellent, and it's a fun place to eat. We really enjoyed the squab lettuce wraps as a appetizier, which was a entree sized portion, and they offer a dish of vegetables with udon noodles for a amazing $9.00 for a entree sized portion. The only disappointment were the coconut shrimp, as the peanut sauce did not have a strong enough flavor. Our waiter was worth the trip just to hear his descriptions of every dish. We would highly recommend Tao.

    The ambiance is great! The menu was delicious, but not many offerings for gluten-free. We were celebrating a birthday, which was nice when they brought out a small individual dessert (but not enough to share). The cost of the food was high, but a decent serving size was included. I would come back and eat at the sushi bar to get faster service. The wait staff seemed over-stretched. The assistants were great. Clean and nice decor and serving pieces.

    Atmosphere is very good - and the energy is fun, but wouldn't recommend it for foodies. The meal was very good but high-priced. Would recommend the bar for a drink or the club for late night dancing. It was clear that once we didn't order desert, the staff wanted us out so the table could be reused - which was a little silly given that there were lots of open tables at 10:30pm on a Monday night.

    The food was amazing, hands down the best food we had in Vegas. However, our server was less than mediocre. He seemed to forget about us multiple times. When I asked him a question his response was "hold on just a sec" and he left and did not come back for about 10 minutes. I wish the service was as good as the food. We had the Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass and the Wasabi Encrusted Filet, both of these dishes were fantastic.

    Food was good but the server and the support stuff were amazing. Only complaint about our overall experience is we waited half an hour for our reservation and they kept just saying a few minutes which is annoying. Also didn't let us know there was a lounge area where we could wait and have a drink until I asked. There are other asian fusion restaurant lounges on the strip that are better for food but we had a great night at the night club after.

Food used to be amazing but now more generic asian you can find anywhere. Club still great but in future will skip dinner.
