If you like MASA, you'll like DAO. Nice Atmosphere, and good food.
I know I'll be going back.

Great service and great food. The restaurant overall was a little noisy but not such that you couldn't hold a conversation with other folks in your party.

The sushi had a frozen taste to it. When I complained about the bad taste to my server nothing was done except her asking if I wanted a box to take it home. The Surf N' Turf roll was beyond huge and fell apart with one bite. It was almost inedible. We were double charged for drinks. Our server rarely came by to refill drinks. Over all I would pass on this place.

The Sunday Brunch Buffet was the primary reason for the visit to Dao. Specifically the sushi and sashimi offerings made the$18.95 buffet a great value alone! The hot foods were also fresh and tasty as well but unfortunately I did not try any of their desserts. So for a great brunch buffet I do recommend Dao!

We made reservations. When we arrived, the host was prompt. However, we were placed at a wobbly table. The waitress later moved use upon request. We ordered Peking duck but they were out. So, I ordered the crispy orange duck dish. My wife ordered the grouper. The fish was dried out and soaked in a sauce to camouflage the dryness. She graciously ate half of eat. My duck had NO seasoning on it. It looked as if it was boiled then sat under a heating lamp for a few hours. The orange sauce was on the side! I thought the duck would be cooked in the sauce! My wife and I tasted the duck and were appalled! I immediately asked the waitress to return it. Speaking of the waitress...she didn’t know the menu well and brought us something that we didn’t ask for and we expected us to eat it and pay for it! I later ordered the salt and pepper beef. It was better but not good. Needless to say, we spent about $80 our first Valentine Day date (newly weds). :( . Don’t plan to return.

Unfortunately service was very lackluster this evening. Food was very slow to come out, the waitress didnt know the menu and it was extremely crowded. Didnt help that we were seated by the entrance so the people waiting for tables kind of overflowed to ours. We tried to order 2 scallion pancakes with 1 sauce and we were told that we couldn't do that even though we have been to Dao over a dozen times and have ordered this. Waited 45 minutes for our food and during that time we were not checked on by our waitress. Next time we will head to Masa or Lucy Hos. Similar food but much better service!

Other than the restaurant not having any indication that I had a reservation, everything else was great. I was able to look at my phone and show where I confirmed the reservation with a 1 on the text message, so, there was no problem in seating the group.

We were a table of 10 for Chinese New Year celebration. The food was outstanding as one has come to expect from a Lucy Ho restaurant. The place was packed so the noise level made it difficult to talk to all at our table. Our table had a long bench along a wall, so it was difficult getting in and out to go back to the buffet, but for a menu meal it’s probably fine. I wish the Peking duck had had crispy skin and scallions. I will definitely go back, though. Highly recommend.

We were created at the door with a nice smile and hello. The server knew how to answer questions about the menu. My friend and I shared dumplings, California Roll, and tuna roll, and the Sesame Chicken. The Sesame Chicken was lighter than other places, which I loved. Everything was awesome and we will return.

They accommodated our group of 6 who were celebrating the holidays and a birthday. They allowed us to bring in our own cake AND still had a birthday ice cream and sparklers gift for our birthday celebrant. Efficient service, receptive to our wants; not too rushed or slow to deliver food.
