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.

Loved the ambience! And our server Antoinette and another girl in training were very caring. The sushi wasn’t my favorite and I think they don’t add crab meat to it. The sea bass skewers were incredible. I wasn’t a fan of the gyoza but that may be personal preference. They also gave us complimentary mochi as dessert, since it was our anniversary. Overall this is a place I’d go to for a special occasion, since the bill does add up. The restaurant itself is amazing and the staff is 10/10. Would come again

Took my sister to dinner for her graduation and TAO was perfect for a late night dinner (reservation at 10:30pm). We were seated at a booth on the stairs, and the atmosphere was great!

Walking into this restaurant is so impressive! The view is gorgeous looking down into the dining area. This is a great place for everything from celebrations with a group to a romantic date.

The food is delicious, but a little over priced. For instance, I love oysters and $3 per oyster is usually standard, $4 is a little on the pricier side; here, they were $6 each! It's a bit much. Other than that, I highly recommend it!

Our server Jocelyn was hands down the sweetest, kindest and most efficient server! She knew the menu well and surprised my best friend whose 50th birthday celebration was the occasion why I booked our reservation at Tao. It was our first time and we will now make Tao our go to spot! Thanks Jocelyn and Tao for an incredible night and memory we will never forget!

Exceptional service, and atmosphere! Our waiter was funny and helpful when deciding on a drink. I went with a moscow mule and my bf with an old fashion, they did not dissappoint!
We went with the chilean sea bass which was melt watering to say the least, and the mangolian beef was to die for! Of course, we had to have the fortune cookie which was a delicious finish ^-^
Definitely coming back!!!

First time there and called and asked for a good front table they said they couldn’t accommodate us because those were for parties of 3’or more which was a lie we saw many empty tables and some had 2 people per table after waiting 20 mins to speak to the manager he got us a table in the lower section will never visit this place again

The service was not good at all. The server was really nice but the steps of the service were off and some of second course came out incorrect. In order for them to correct the mistake, it took 15 minutes, which I was told would be faster. The rest of my food was cold once the error was corrected and my guest had finished eating. Overall, I did not enjoy this experience at all.

Stop by Tao for dinner after spending a day checking out LA. I been to many fancy restaurants all over the world but none can match the customer services and attention to details by the waitress and everyone there. The design is a lot more impressive in person than in photo. The foods are incredible. I asked my waitress to pick for us and she delivered a grand slam. The Chilean Seabass on stick and Fried Snapper are must try. Everyone also love the super fancy desert too. I normally don’t write review but was very impress with Tao Los Angeles. Will definitely visit again when I’m back in LA

We had Amanda as our server last night. She was very personable and fun. From the very beginning of the night, we were all saying that she was great at her job. We were very happy that she was assigned to our table because we really enjoyed her. My birthday experience was fantastic!!
