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.

We enjoyed ourselves at tao they accommodated my candles request and put huge sparklers on our cupcakes and cake. I really appreciated that. The only issue I had was before the cake came out no one came to wipe down our table and remove the dishes. So they brought the cake out with no space on the table and I had to request they remove the cake and wipe the table. Which is common knowledge and restaurant etiquette. We enjoyed the food I got the spicy lobster fried rice. It was very delicious. Also there was a host who was a young African American female with curly hair, she was very pleasant and helpful.

Food was less than good maybe because it was a Sunday I’ve had better food that was fresh. Maybe a different chef on Sunday.

Came here for our anniversary. Considering it’s still all outdoor seating due to COVID, it was still a great experience and still very enjoyable. Our server Thien, food and drinks were fantastic. Must try spot in LA

It was extremely cold and they did not have gas for the heat lamps so our experience was very uncomfortable.

Beautiful restaurant with great vibes and music. Outdoor seating is well laid out with nice heaters nearby to keep you warm on the cooler days/evenings. The food and service was excellent. I do wish to return hoping I will have chance to enjoy the artistic indoors once COVID restrictions let up. Regardless, I will be back very soon. Great place, great food and an even greater experience!

We had a great time, a little on the chilli side not their fault weather is changing. That all said food service and staff were wonderful. Maybe a few more heaters are needed.

The best resturant experience we have had in 2020! The tables are well spaced apart and that gave it more of a private, romantic feeling. Food was, as always, incredible.

celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary with our 2 sons and daughter in law to be on a Saturday. Disappointed they still had only outside dining, but the food and service made up for it as well as the awesome beauty of the inside (when you go to use the restroom). It was kind of nice to get interior pics without a crowd inside. I expected overpriced small portions of greasy chinese food but to our surprised at how delectable and well presented everytbing was... light and fresh! And large portions!!! Prix fixe menu available, we did a combination of those and a few other regular dishes. Will go back again with girlfriends!

Amazing location, food and hostesses. Unfortunately service was horrible waitress did not introduce her self and we probably seen her about 3-4 times in our 2 hour limit. Never really checked on our to see if we needed anything after we explained it was a first time there. The bus boy was very rude never asked to removed plates just stepped in and took them had a very unwelcoming attitude.

Main dish of salmon was good but nothing super special. Sometimes took a while for waitress to come, but that's okay. Nice ambience for sitting outside during COVID times, I probably would pick Perch or a nice rooftop bar for the money.

Food was outstanding. Ambience was well, it's a pandemic and you have to eat on the street like everywhere else. 4/5 would reccomend.

Good energy. Absolutely delicious meal. And we ordered a lot. From the sushi, to the rice and pad Thai, to the apps, they nailed it. And to top it off, their contactless billing process is one of the best I’ve seen at any restaurant.
