Pan-Asian
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.

Went here twice. My fiancé took me here for our anniversary and I loved the ambience so much, also their cocktails and food. So I took my family back here the following week. The interior and design of the venue is exquisite, people are all dressed up, women in tight dresses as if their second stop would be a night club. Very diverse patrons.

Most of the food items are delicious, my favorite was the whole fried snapper and the beef&broccoli. Cocktails, I recommend Taotini and Nirvana. All the menu items are on a bit pricey side.

The only downside of this spot is the service. The waiters are super nice, amiable. But it takes 20 minutes for you to place your order, your water doesn't get refilled in time, takes another 20 minutes or so to get your check. I feel like they just simply need to strengthen their staffing on the floor.

If you have a guest/client that you want to impress, take them here, but don't expect the service that you'd receive that you would typically get at other expensive restaurants.

Service was slow. Food was average. Prices were high. Ambience was nice. Not worth the expensive price for average Chinese food. I would not recommend or go back

Gorgeous, cool space. Great menu & service. Kind of amazing people watching. Our servers, both in the bar and the restaurant were fantastic. We ordered several appetizers, entrees, and a couple desserts - appetizers were unique and delicious. Entrees were good. Desserts and sushi sounded better than they actually were. They were good, just nothing super special.
Would highly recommend and will be back.

A Ok place to visit and experience, coming back, NO, why, Chinese food should not be that expensive but quality and taste is good (not that chinese). Overall menu is small and over price. Please is magical very different. Ambience “music” not that great, if is Tao (asian fusion) should be more Buddha lounge music type not American pop next door rest. Oh well, tried, done it, next!

The architecture of this place is awesome! Food is good, a little expensive. $300 for dinner for two with no dessert or alcohol. Service was outstanding and manager went out of his way to talk to us.
