    The ambiance is romantic and is great for birthdays however the quality of the food does not match its pricing. Cocktails were presentable in a fashionable way and tasted good and were strong but not overwhelming. The music they played on the Thursday night that I had my reservation was hip hop. I don’t believe they play other music. The shrimp tasted like it came from a frozen pre made bag with no cooking required. The lobster roll was not tasteful at all it was disappointing. Usually you want a sushi roll to be savory in every bite. This was not the case. The soy sauce on the side tasted like it was from a packet. The service was great. The staff are very helpful.

    We went early for dinner. The place was beautiful!! Food was pretty good except the tempura green beans were a little undercooked and the coating was doughy. The orange chicken wasn’t as appetizing but the balance of the meal (and we ordered a number of apps and meals) were perfect. The ambiance was amazing. The noise level was good since we got there for an early. Their mocktails were delicious. Enjoyed them slightly more than the signature drink. And their “Pringles” are wow wow wow. Thanks for an enjoyable evening

    It was very disappointing 😞, the most disappointing was the waitress who started to ask if we are finished our dinner every 5 mins after 1.30 hours we started. There were a lot of dishes on the table, she started to take away our plates, I thought she might want to change them, but no 🤦‍♀️, she is taking away our plates and chopsticks and don't want to return. And when asked to return dishes, she returned only plates without chopsticks and forks. I paid $380 but next time won't return there for sure. Don't waste your time and money in such a place!!!

    I dined here on a Monday night just to have the "Tao Experience". While the food was tasty, and the people watching was entertaining, this isn't an experience I am interested in having again. The restaurant is grand and the decor is stimulating and appealing, but the food was not impressive and can be had at less expensive restaurants. Despite the lackluster food, the true standout is the poor service. From start to finish, hospitality was a let down. The hostesses were slow to get our party of two seated, and neglected to acknowledge us for quite some time, only to then hand us a pager, similar to you know, Olive Garden. That really cheapened the experience for me and was hard to overlook. Our waiter was equally inattentive, and we sat for quite some time waiting to place our orders and request new cocktails. I was under the impression that Tao was a high end restaurant, but having now dined there myself,I've come to realize that is a reach.

    This time when we went they were quite busy & there were a few hiccups but our server and the manger were awesome they came over talk to us and really went out of their way to ensure our evening was enjoyable. The lobster ravioli is my favorite and Thai desert plate was incredible we had a blast! This is one of our go tos when we have family/friends in town they never disappoint!

    The vibe and ambiance is cool for sure! The food is good but I’d say definitely not worth the price. Worst part was the service. Our waiter was nice but the waiting for the food was ridiculous. Overall, because of the ambiance, it’s a cool experience, but quality as a whole is not worth it more than twice.

    Our table was the absolute worse! In the way of everyone coming in and out of the kitchen. The worse spot in the corner. That table should not even be there. Waiters bumped into our chair countless times. No excuse me or sorry. Table service was not good. Food was not to expectation specially for the price. some stuff was just bad tasting. Definitely over priced. The best thing was the actual restaurant design and architecture. Besides nothing is worth coming back for. Very disappointed specially since we where celebrating a beautiful occasion.

We’ve been welcomed so nicely and been served very kindly. The food is 5 stars , the staff was really friendly. We definitely made the right choice to celebrate there . 100% recommendation! Thank you , TAO.

    My wife and I went for Mother's Day. It was an amazing experience all around. From the valet outside, who are totally friendly to the host to the bus boy who's thank us for coming, and our waitress, who was informative, attentive, and warm. The dishes were inventive flavorful and cooked to perfection. The space is breathtaking. It is definitely an expensive evening out but well worth it. We will be back for a special occasion or just for more of the tuna chips.

    When we first walked in, my wife described it as a setting out of an Indiana Jones movie - breathtaking and awe-inspiring. For our Mother's Day dinner, they treated my family exceptionally well, made sure we had a great experience, and set the stage for us to come back again.
