    I made reservations at Tao for my birthday on Tuesday. We arrived early, and we were seated immediately. Our server was Alexa. She was friendly, very thorough, and attentive. The guys that came around to top off the water, remove plates, etc., were fantastic as well. The food was AMAZING! We had Shanghai Fried Rice, Drunken Lobster Pad Thai, and Black Pepper Chicken (I believe that was the name). For dessert, we had bread pudding donuts-Yummy! Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Food was excellent - very tasty and our waiter was terrific! The ambience is spectacular. It’s a real treat for the eyes. The only negative is that it’s an LA meat market. Lots of young people hyped up on testosterone and short skirts. If you can deal with that it will be a lovely evening.

    Food and ambience were amazing per usual, but service was VERY poor. We waited for over 20 minutes to get our bill. Our server was nowhere to be seen, and when we would see her she was only focused on one table. Maybe she had too many tables to herself, or i don’t know what it was. We also saw about 3 tables that they ended up getting up & leaving because their food never came out.

    I came here to celebrate my birthday and like always, TAO never disappoints! I did my reservation a month prior to the date and requested seating, for two, on the steps. However, they did not have any seats available, so they proceeded to the floor and attempted to sit me at a small table, in elbow proximity to other guests. I did not want to spend my time or birthday sitting with other people. I told the hostess the table did not work for me and she was able to relocate me to a very nice table in the private dining area, overlocking the entire dining floor. I loved it! The food was delicious, as always! The Chinese Broccoli and shrimp tempura is a MUST! To top off my evening, I ordered banana pudding, which is so tasty, and they put a birthday candle on it! I love visiting TAO! They absolutely never fail!

    I want to celebrate my birthday dinner with some friends. I did expect a bit more for a birthday occasion. I don’t know if they don’t generally do something, but I did expect a little bit more of the service to be a little better, but I mean I didn’t that the food was great. The drinks are amazing and the desert was awesome.

    I wish I could give this five complete stars, however, due to what happened at the end of the evening, giving it a four star rating. First this was a birthday celebration. The reservation was made as such, and with a special note to the restaurant to please bring over a special birthday dessert at the end of the evening. The food was delicious spectacular terrific no issues whatsoever with the food. Our original server was phenomenal pleasant kind informative. Come to the end of the evening. We were presented with a dessert menu. We did not want an additional dessert (because we didn’t want to desserts) but we did say in after dinner drink a new waiter comes over. We tell him that I want to after dinner drink he goes away. He comes back and presents with a check to close the ticket out and leave so confused and perplexed did not bring over the birthday dessert nothing quite disappointing. Don’t know where the new waiter comes in to play why he had to help us, he just shows up like I was so confused. The fact that we didn’t get a birthday dessert that I specifically and written and it was a milestone birthday was quite disheartening and disappointing. Whatever we laughed, we went somewhere else and had a nightcap with a birthday dessert, but no to the restaurant it is disheartening that you didn’t pay attention and it felt as though we were being rushed out of the restaurant at 9:30 9:40 PM which put on a negative mark on the evening.

    Place is beautiful and TAO group always makes good food. That said, when it's $100+ a head, you should expect not to be treated like cattle. We were told to order the full menu and they would pace it out (as any respectable restaurant should be able). This was a nightmare of pacing: tacos came before water, and plates came after the second course. Even sitting with two dishes on the table, untouched, no plates, the server walked up and asked if we needed our half full drinks refreshed... no, need a plate so we can eat the hot food! Every dish was delivered without something that was needed. Didn't get a refill on water until the end. Only thing we were asked repetitively is if we wanted another alcoholic drink (sales team is on point, hospitality team not so much). Then, halfway through our main, we were asked about dessert. And 3/4 thru the main asked to pay the check, I mean, it's not even sanitary to touch that gross card machine while trying to eat. This is just the tip of the iceberg of the little things that made a fine dining experience more of a rushed elementary school lunch trip. Will not return.

    Beautiful restaurant, unfortunately disregarding and petulant male servers. The female front of house staff were lovely, it was such a steep contrast in attitudes. Our server brought one glass of wine when a bottle was ordered, and quickly dropped it to the table and ran off before I could say anything. We didn't see our server until our three course meal was over. During dinner I had tried to ask another male server to help us but was barked at "I am not you server". When our server presented to clear our plates I told him that I had asked for a bottle not one glass, he walked away, disappeared out the back for a time and then was seen serving other tables whilst holding our bottle of wine. When he eventually brought it to us there was no apology, just a condescending statement of "cheers guys". I was in shock and wanted to get out of there. I have never paid so much to be treated so poorly. We would have liked to have spend a great deal more time and money, and tip generously for our experience as we are on an overseas trip but felt vilified by the male servers contempt. We had made a reservation at 8:45 pm Monday 09/19/22.

    Waitress forgot our second round and food took 2 hours to come out because our food was given to someone else. Was never compensated for anything still had to pay full total bill and even worse for all this to happen on a nonbusy night accordingto the Waitress and to top it off on my anniversary. Food was good but definitely not worth going back if that's how they treat there customers

    It's been about 8 months since we last dined at Tao. This time we felt that the food and service is not what it used to be. We ordered pretty much the same items we always order, but they weren't as good. I hope the quality will return to what it used to be.
