Drawing strong inspiration from TAO Downtown in New York, TAO Los Angeles is a dynamic two-level space, complete with four private dining rooms and a large bar. A grand staircase connects TAO’s ground and lower level seating, creating the ultimate platform to see and be seen. The custom staircase includes round banquettes and Chinese daybed-influenced sofas. As in New York, a 20-foot tall Quan Yin statue stands atop a koi pond; using 3D projection mapping technology, Rockwell Group’s LAB designed subtle animations bring this signature statue to life. The menu, developed by Chef/Partner Ralph Scamardella, feature a diverse selection of Asian-inspired specialties, focusing on Chinese, Japanese and Thai techniques and ingredients.

This was a nice experience. I had my daughter's 21st birthday dinner here. The ambiance is stellar, with beautiful decor to take awesome pictures at every turn. Food was just as great, presentation is key. Nice music in the background. Service was memorable, smiles all around. Overall, a fine dining experience I'd def repeat in the future.

Celebrated my birthday at Tao and was not disappointed. Love the idea and overall theme of the spot. Gave off lounge, restaurants, and bar feels.

Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Our waiter suggested several items which all turned-out to be delicious and satisfying. The ambience and vibe were over the top, artful and chic. I would suggest taking a special friend, date or anyone else you're looking to impress. The food an drinks were on the pricey side, but I guess that's to be expected.

Go here! I came here for my birthday. My girlfriend and I were sat immediately, talked the server and had our drinks fast. The food was fantastic. And I even got a dessert at the end and a free glass of champagne. Definitely try this place!

Everything was wonderful. The only thing I didn’t like was that I got a call around noon to ask if I had a reservation that night and I said ‘yes ‘. Then the person at the other end questioned me, ‘how many people and what time?’
Was that checking if we would really show up or if we were for real? For Goodness Sake, you guys already took my credit card number to safe guard the reservation. What more did they want? That felt very insulting! I am not a teenager and don’t expect to be treated like one from restaurant receptionists.

The place is dope.
The food was great.
The service was slow like switching channels in the 90’s.
The lounge area had only 1 waiter and she wasn’t there, so it was self serves. The bar had just 1 bartender so he was busy.
The dining area was fine but the waiters was always far away.

I took my wife here fir our anniversary, we were late but they got us seated in a timely manner. The waitress was amazing, answered all my dumb questions, and was very knowledgeable. The atmosphere was exquisite, great music, and even better food. It is a lil pricey but unfortunately well worth it.

Went there for a birthday dinner and was proposed to!!! The staff were so accommodating to this special moment. This was one of the best nights of my life and I couldn’t have asked for it to have happened at a more perfect place.

Our dinner was bad, food doesn’t taste good , lobster roll was horrible, to swallow one piece I had to drink all glass of water. Service was so slow, order coffee in a end after we finished dinner, after 20 min waiting waiter ( no coffee, no dessert menus), I have to remind her about coffee, and she said coffee will come with dessert menu in a end,
but we finished dinner 30 min ago and just seating there for half hour, no coffee, no dessert menu....
so we just pay and leave.
Very disappointed.

Such a great location and atmosphere. And the food is delicious. Too many pricy upscale places have just average food but Tao dim sum and main courses are delicious. And the deserts are amazing and presented beautifully. I was there for a birthday and we did a lot of eating and drinking. In the past, waiters and managers would send over free shots or appetizers or desserts. None of that this time. Don’t know if it was an oversight or just belt tightening but it always lent to a celebratory atmosphere when they did that.

Went here to celebrate my birthday. The food was amazing. Definitely recommend the beef waguu. It was a party of 8 we were seated by the large Buddha statute in the back in a semi private. The waitress was friendly and very helpful. The service of how fast the food came out was great. The party had two kids both 8 years old and I would say the atmosphere for them was good. They enjoyed the decor and the coi fish pond we were seated next too.

make sure to order the Desert Platter, and if nothing else either the Lava Cake or the Fortune Cookie
both are not to be believed

L’endroit est sublime par contre nous avons attendu 45 minute pour nos plats car apparemment le serveur a oublié nos commandes. Donc je suis déçu la dessus. Le serveur nous a offert un dessert pour ce rattraper.
