My experience was sadly very disappointing. I don’t understand why I can book a reservation at 10:45pm and have a 15 min grace period if the kitchen closes strictly at 11pm. It was frustrating because I made it on time and my party was looking for parking. They told me I couldn’t sit until my party was here. At 10:50 they told me they could seat me and order for the party before 11. Obviously that didn’t work out as I felt rushed. I just don’t understand why they would have reservations available 15 min before kitchen closes. Just doesn’t make sense.

We celebrated a birthday, we live an hour away and got there at our reservation time. Two people from the group we’re running behind and we still got seated and ordered drinks and appetizers while they arrived. Our server was really nice. It was the first time at the restaurant for three of us and we loved it.

The staff is appalling. Service was late - then everything arrived at once. No Chardonnay available. The waiter tried for a full minute opening a screw cap bottle with a bottle opener knife

The service was okay , but our waiter dropped a drink at our table once we sat down and our appetizer was so bad do not get the lobster wontons I think it’s called it was literally gooey soup so terrible. It was so cold in there and the tables in the middle on the stairs are so low it’s hard to eat you have to either bend down or pick up your plate to eat which isn’t very flattering. Our server only came around 3 times and the final time was just to give us our bill and pick up our bill. I personally like when a server checks in with you and gives you room on your table by taking old plates or empty plates. I think I was just over hyped for it and it was not what I was expecting. Also the drinks are very weak so order double shots of what ever your drink is, you’ll thank me later.

While everything was good, I just realized now after giving my review, that the packaging of our leftovers was not as excellent as everything else. We ordered the fried fish and hardly ate it. We asked for a doggie back for this and for other items. I only found out that the head of the fish, which we did not touch and which we would have liked packaged up, was not included in the doggie bag. This was a necessary part of the to-go request. Needless to say, we are a bit disappointed. As Asians, we do appreciate eating the crispy "head" of the fish.

I will use this an an opportunity for improvement and training for our staff. Sincerely, Tao Management

It was very nice, food was good, DJ was off the hook, staff were GREAT. There was just one down for me and my party and that’s the temperature. It was FREEZING inside. Other than that it’s a definite yes for me to return just next time I’ll have a heavier jacket

It was my birthday and I had out of town guests. Service was incredibly slow and confusing. Waters weren’t refilled. When asked if we can get a birthday dessert the response was “ we don’t do that here”. My friends wanted a dessert menu to order one and that was still not communicated somehow and was denied dessert menus. The food was not better than Vegas. It was okay not great. Drinks were good. Just seem to lack service. Sadly no birthday celebration. We were hotel guests at Dream and enjoyed the highlight room for lunch more. We are big spenders so this was a major let down.

Food was amazing but service was very bad. Staff do not follow CDC guidelines at all. We asked for straws and it was handed to us unwrapped by buss boy who cleans the dirty tables. When we were served our desserts all spoons was giving to us by the head and not by spoons’s handle..Wow
We had a birthday girl in our group and although I said that when I reserved my table, only we got a candle on half of strawberry on the dessert I ordered for our group. I ordered coffee with my dessert I never got it and it was Sunday night and they were not busy at all. The server did not deserve the tip I left him. Hope someone from upper mgmt read my comment and respond to me !

Party of 9 for a 15-year old birthday. Service was excellent, very attentive and they were on top of a food allergy one of us had. Food was delicious even with modifications. We ordered more as things were gobbled up quickly. It had a great vibe.

Great place to dine. Food was good overall. But service was horrible. Manager was a joke. It took us 1.5 hrs before our food started to arrive. Lost order.. was given the wrong bill, etc. about 2.5 hrs start to finish. I'm thinking this is covid related. Going to wait a year or so before we try again.
