Food was very good just really not worth the cost. The portions are small in comparison to other Asian Cuisine Bistros. The ambiance, decor, & music was the excellent.
We were running late and the restaurant updated our reservation with no issues. The food came out very fast, was delicious, and the service was excellent. Great drinks and atmosphere! Would definitely recommend.
Always a great time. Food was amazing!
Tao is a feast for the senses both visually and from a taste perspective. This is a must dine restaurant while in Chicago.
Business dinner that went flawlessly. We will be back
Amazing experience! I can’t wait to go back. The food was so original and delicious. Our concierge was able to get us on the list for the club too. It was the best night
Fun date spot. Cool atmosphere, good food, great service
Great spot...great food. Goooooooooo for sureeeeee
Food was good and service was great except we were there for a 9 year old’s special birthday dinner and the waiter acknowledged the birthday but they didn’t even bring out anything for the birthday.
Every restaurant in Chicago brings out some desert with a candle for a birthday. That was a big miss.
The Chilean sea bass and giant fortune cookie are amazing
It had been a while since we had last visited Tao, and we were very favorably impressed that it's better than ever. The food was great, portions seemed larger, and our server Edward was exceptional. We also appreciated that one of the managers, Nolan, stopped by our table to welcome us back (and we're not VIPs by any stretch). We were there this time because we were high bidder on a Tao gift card that Tao had donated to a charity auction. It's great that Tao not only is a top-notch restaurant, but also that it gives back to the community.
Great night. 2 people at a 4 person table. Could have been better.
We have been across the street since they have opened, but had never been in. The 30% Neighbor Discount brought us in initially, but we will be back. Our waitress explained the menu wonderfully and the sushi was gorgeous to see and better to taste! We will definitely be back.
It took an hour to get seated. The food was ok, considering the price you’d think it would be better. They were nice enough to get us drinks on them for the wait, which was nice.
The server was on top of it, food was good, music was good, and it was an overall good vibe. With all the people and the music, it still wasn’t too loud, and they are not the most strict on their dress code. And they’re accommodating if you order something you don’t like.
This is my first time coming to Tao to celebrate my birthday. I made reservations for 9 ppl at 9:30 pm. I honestly wished they notify people on their website or even on here. In order to be seated, we had to wait for the entire party to arrive. In my party, there was only 3 out of 9 people so I just told someone we will start without the others. We waited for about a hour or so be seated. Other than, our food was superb and delicious. I just wish I had cake or some kind of unique dessert besides ice cream. The ice cream was pretty delicious and creamy (don’t get me wrong) I am celebrating my 27th birthday.
Excellent food/ loved it!!!!
Everything was amazing. The whole experience
Came here for a birthday. The service was great. The server and waitstaff were very friendly and attentive. Food was great as well. One thing to mention is that they can only take up to 4 cards if you are splitting the bill. Our group just had one person pay and utilized Venmo since some of us ordered much less.
Portions are way to big. Fish is not that fresh. And the sushi is cut into pieces that are way too big it’s not appetizing
Felt like it was unnecessary hype. Expensive food with not so good taste.
Did not enjoy the vegetarian rice recommended by the server and the service was very slow
Fun Night! Great atmosphere and music.
Food availability and taste for vegetarian was just eh. Not worth the price when the flavor wasn’t there. When told to make two dishes spicy both were sweet.
Gorgeous restaurant and bar! Excellent service! Will definitely come back.
Brilliant evening at TAO, the food was sensational way better than we thought it would be. Would 100% recommend this to anyone visiting Chicago
High end Asian restaurant with amazing atmosphere. Part club part dining. They offered a DJ during the dinner hour that played a relaxed club music that still allowed conversations to be herd at the table. Excellent food if your looking to spend a little extra money downtown for a special occasion.
Excellent experience. Ambiance was fantastic and the waitress was great. Food tasted phenomenal. Will definitely visit again
Wonderful place & experience. Definitely recommend!!
Uni, spicy tuna, sea bass, filet tokyo style, & scallops, all Excellent!
I would definitely visit again. The waiting time to be seated was disappointing, with me having reservations. The wait was a hour to be seated otherwise it was All good!
The staff at Tao was very attentive and understanding. We were running a little late and they made sure to accommodate us and were very kind about the situation. The food was amazing as well! We will be back.
We had a great dinner. Our server was made aware of my husband's paprika allergy and worked with the chef to ensure no paprika in our dishes. She was also aware of our time constraint (we had tickets for Phantom of the Opera at 7:30pm) and got us on our way in plenty of time, yet we didn't feel rushed.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Would definitely recommend this place.
Drinks are amazing. Nice vibe.
Our waiter was okay. I wished we had the waitress who was waiting on the next table. She was bubbly, helpful and very attentive. Ours was not. He was bland. He was talking to another waitress for a very long time before coming back to take our menu. We did enjoy the food. It is pricey. But the ambience was super- it is loud- but great vibe. I had leftovers so I ate them the next day and it was still delicious. This was our first time eating at TAO and our 33rd Anniversary. We are from out of State.
Holiday dinner with friends. Loved everything about it.
Beautiful venue. Compatible to their other locations. I have visited 3 times and everytime its been the same...Cool vibe with "Panda Express" food.
I dont like when severs
It's super annoying
