    Service, food and ambience give upscale vibes. It’s dim, romantic, yet lively. Food is delicious - we tried the recommendations by our waitress. There was music but it wasn’t overbearing. We were still able to hold conversations without shouting at each other - major plus. Loved our experience! Best part, so many gorgeous photo ops! TAO is in my top 3. Will definitely be back.

    It took them almost 50 min to get our food and the olive leaf fried rice was tasting so bad, it was so salty and when I asked the server how they usually taste she said it is salty, I was not able to taste anything else other then salt and burned oil. The pad Thai was average as well, can be found in any Thai restaurant. I have tried better Asian food and less expensive than what I had here. It’s only the hype for the ambiance and nothing else

    La atención y espera es sumamente lenta, esperamos 45 minutos a pesar de contar con reservación. La mesera que nos tomó la orden de comida fue sumamente amable, sin embargo el resto del personal es descortés y te ignora por completo, desde las host, los meseros que te llevan los alimentos, hasta las meseras del bar. Está lleno como si fuera un bar gente de pie caminando entre las mesas, ruido extremo, sinceramente fue una experiencia nada placentera.

    First of all, the multilevel dining room is beautiful, with a stunning giant Bodhisattva statue dominating one end of the room. Very dramatic and the stairs from the lounge down to the main dining level allow for well dressed ladies to make a regal entrance. The food is excellent also. Prices are high, not surprising. Extensive cocktail menu is delicious. We enjoyed Lychee martinis. Service was quick, efficient, and courteous. The place does get loud and be prepared for shouts of “Sake!!!” This is a great place for special occasions or parties but if you need quiet you may wish to reserve one of their private rooms.

    Being stopped outside to check my reservation after saying I do have a reservation, plus the door person taking my phone to scroll to check it thoroughly, was excessive. Once inside the hostesses could be friendlier. Our waitress Julia was amazing and made the experience awesome! Turned into a fun night with my girls for my bday.

    No birthday treat was provided after booking a reservation with specific birthday request and telling the waitress we are celebrating a birthday. Being proactive in making birthday dinners special is important.

    I’ve been before and always had exceptional service and food. Today’s wasn’t great, the hostesses were unfriendly, dismissive and frankly rude. Sat at the bar before getting sat at our table and the bartender also wasn’t friendly. Our server once we got to our table was fantastic and the food and drink was amazing!

    This is the second time in a row that we have been dispatched with this restaurant. In short, we ordered our food with the hot and sour soup. The soup came out almost a half hour later and it tasted excellent. However, the main course came out over an hour after ordering and it was warm, not hot and undercooked which was a major disappointment and the excuse was a basic apology from the server. To top it off, the valet charged $20 for parking even though the sign read $15 and yes, we did have a validation.

    We had our birthday dinner with my friends. One of our friend has a seafood allergy. He ordered filet mignon and specifically says to waitress (Julia) that he has a seafood allergy. Julia was very helpful with my friends food allergies and she was amazing with all recommendations. But unfortunately when the food comes and my friend ate the filet mignon, he had a reaction and his tough was numb and swollen a little because on the dish my friend didn’t even notice that there is seaweeds garnish on it. Even though Julia confirmed with us that the food is ok to eat by my friend. Julia apologised and replace my friend’s food with new dish, gave him complimentary tequila to clean his palate and he enjoyed it. My only feedback is you need to be careful most especially if guests have an allergies. You need to double check before serving it to the guests. Apart from that interior design was amazing and recommendations for food were great.

    We frequent this restaurant. Our only complaint is the noise level. Sometimes hard to hear the people at your own table. Having said that, though, the food and drinks are always awesome!! The hot and sour soup is the best than anywhere else I’ve ordered it. Sushi always fresh and tasty. Our server Mackenzie was the best server we’ve had there.

    It was my first time there took my gf out for our anniversary. I was seated somewhere I did not like I asked to be moved they moved me. What didn’t sit right with me was that when I was moved tables I was told I’d have to be out of that spot by 7:15. When they had barely sat us down by 5:45. Food is great ambiance is good. Just did not like how I felt rushed after I was seated. Overall good experience will be dining again. But just hope next time we aren’t rushed or told anything if we move seats.
