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.

Nice birthday dinner. Fun with family. Food and cocktails were 8/10. My favorite was the lamb chops. Although when walking outside, the valet was rude. And the people outside were disturbing. I had to work my way through a crowd of sketchy people holding open liquor bottles to get to my car. I don’t know if I want to be back.

It was excellent. However, it was very odd when we left the restaurant to pick up our car at valet. There was a group of kids, about 6, trying to sell candy immediately as we opened the door. They were hitting each other, using foul language, running into the street. It was very uncomfortable and would have been nice if they were asked to move on. It was bizarre!!!

Excellent entree food! The Black Pepper Chili Chicken had the perfect amount of spice, without setting your mouth on fire. My husband enjoyed the Crispy Chicken. The rice side wasn’t enough to share so we each got our own. Also, the edamame was good, just topped with a bit too much salt for my liking. Given we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, our wait staff brought out our chocolate molten cake dessert, with cute (and edible) chocolate decor! Yum.

No wait time - we had reservations for 6:15p on a weeknight and were immediately sat at our table.

Overall, walked out completely full and satisfied. Worth every penny! Would definitely return next time we’re in LA!

The music was great they play a mixture of hip hop old and new, R and B and all of the hits. It’s very good people watching experience. Our food was excellent. Drinks were strong and good even though they were high priced. The experience overall was great. The only thing that needs more attention is the restroom. They needed more care in the women’s restroom area. I was there on a Saturday night with my girlfriend. We were both dressed in club attire, however ppl were dressed different ways yet trendy and stylish.

Fun place for a celebration. This was our second time and we did not enjoy as much as the first time. Our service was terribly slow and we had to ask for things (like silverwear) repeatedly. It was very expensive for the terrible service.

We love Tao in Vegas but this one was disappointing. Service wasn’t the best. Table seating wasn’t the best. Food was average.

It was my father in laws and mother in laws anniversary dinner and they didn’t make a fuss about it.

Excellent atmosphere and vive, design is absolutetly amazing Las Vegas style.
You could be there hours without feeling it. Great food, not consistent taste on drinks
and lacks service for the type of restaurant. We were charged 50% gratuity.
Overal is highly recomended. You get what you paid for but service.

Alex Mazza is a terrible manager!!! I have never had a bad experience here or any other Tao until dealing with Alex. I’ve dined here many times and the service has been exceptional until last night when Alex came to talk to us. He definitely needs a lot of training! He said he’s been in his role there for 8 months but doesn’t have any business cards... hmmm? The previous managers and all other staff has always been amazing! Please teach Alex Mazza how to effectively communicate with clients. We had a very minor question about a party streamer and he made it a major deal for no reason at all. We spent several hundred dollars dining and I’m a regular at this restaurant, however I’m not looking forward to returning if there’s any chance that I may have to interact with this manager in the future!

Came all the way from London just for Tao. Great service. They gave us a seat where it was dark but we asked to move to a brighter seat and they moved us without any hesitation . Great food! We will definitely be going back!

Very nice food and atmosphere however no attraction to detail. I was there for birthday and friend reunion.
Staff didn’t make it special for me at all. However service was good ! Just not as exciting as I was expecting.
