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.

Server was horrible. We sat for 20 minutes before we got service. She never apologized for us waiting. She never smiled. I will never go back to this location.

Ambience of dining area , guest list , and bathroom were above exceptional . Prices of meals were great even though drinks were a littler on the stronger side and not that great (my only “complaint”). Definitely would visit again .

TAO is my favorite restaurant in LA. The architecture & decor is stunning. Staff is personable & professional. We love the selection in appetizers, entrees & beverages. I am not a dessert person but the banana pudding. tempura banana and fortune cookie crust that my dad was AMAZING!!! The ambience was lively yet we were still able to carry on conversation easily. Thank you for another great experience!

Beautiful space, worth going for that alone. It's a bit rushed on a Saturday as they want to turn tables, but the service is good. Food is pretty good but it's more of an experience.

Had an amazing time tonight, all the food and drinks were delicious!! The decor and ambiance were perfect. All the staff were very attentive and extremely hospitable! I highly reccomend the Mango Chili Martini and the Nirvana to drink and the crispy snapper in sand to eat. For desert definitely get the giant fortune cookie! It was fantastic! The vanilla and chocolate mousse inside wasn't too sweet either.

the food we ordered wasn’t good. The best things we ordered were the wagyu on the stick and the chicken satay. The dan dan noodles were horrible. We had a crazy drunk lady next to us and she was making a show breaking glasses and acting out.

Great spot! Food was excellent. Staff was awesome! The only issue I had was that it was my husbands birthday, and I asked for a booth and was told that booths were only for 4+ guests. When we got seated, I noticed that at least 6 of the booths had 2 people sitting in them. Not cool but with that said, we still got a nice table. They also hooked up an amazing dessert. Would definitely go back!

Amazing food, great service. Overpriced drinks and very loud groups of parties acting like animals and singing loud across both top balcony dining areas. Majority classless clientele.

Your definitely paying for the ambience here! The service was excellent but I have to say the food was nothing special. If I had to recommend one item off the menu it would be the lobster and shrimp spring rolls.
