    Everything about this restaurant was great. The place was clean and smelled good. Our waiter was awesome, the staff also worked as a team in bringing and cleaning up our food. The food was fresh and awesome. Then we also had dessert and that was really good as well. Great atmosphere with really nice people.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday yesterday. The restaurant is beautiful and romantic. Not exactly the same as the one in Las Vegas but still very nice. The waitress and waiter that served our table was very nice and friendly. The waiter joked around with us and made us laugh. Checking on us to make sure we were doing good wasn't overwhelming. It was just the right amount of check-in. The food and drink was really good. It was so yummy that I didn't mind paying $224 for 2 people. We had 1 appetizer the chicken lollipop, 3 entrees pork lo mein, black pepper chicken and pork fried rice. And 3 martinis with a bottle of sparkling water. It's too bad I live so far or I'll be coming here more often on date nights with my boyfriend.

    Booked this restaurant 2 days ago before my birthday, everything is perfect I just wished more food options 😅 but everything went so well.. and also I expected to be more strict when it comes to dress code because we prepared and other people to have a fancy dinner and other guests are not so dress appropriately for the place.

    The valet parking attendant is charging $20.00 for parking under the 4hour flat rate maximum rate. Whether he sees the Tao takeout bag or not the guest is subject to pY $20.00 . There are no signs or reminders to have your ticket validated. The validated fee is $12.00. By the end of his shift, he wLks Aay with a HUGE tip in his pockets or additional profit for the restaurant .

    Food was very good! Pricey though. (Ex., $10 for 2 pieces of shrimp tempura.) Very cool place where you can dress up if you want!! Perfect for special occasions. Most dishes great for family style dining/sharing.

    We usually love this place. Don't come hungry. We had a 9:30 pm reservation, arrived 5-10 min earlier and still didn't get seated until 10pm. That was annoying. But luckily our server was on it, he was quick, got the food out quick, and he did it with a good attitude. The food per usual was delicious. And we topped it with a yummy dessert which our server suggested, the donuts with ice cream. I know we'll be back, but maybe not on a Friday night. Tuesdays, and Wednesdays are better

    Hostess and Waiter was great. Sushi was good but food other than sushi was very salty. Also I believe I left a couple of my cards there which I reached out to them about and 48hrs later I have not gotten a response.

    This was my second visit to this Tao and I love it more and more. They offered a little bit of different options on the menus and cocktail menus that I hadn’t noticed in Las Vegas and I Loved that. The music was a great selection and had the energy at my table as well as the entire joint jumpin. The service was great. Food was delicious.

    I showed up to this reservation with my guest (huge stylist in LA) after leaving the GUCCI event. Security outside rudely stopped me before entering and told me I couldn’t come in with shorts on because I am a guy. As a non binary REGULAR at Tao I felt discriminated against because I’m wearing a blazer (all GUCCI) and I see girls in shorts and skirts and guys wearing hoodies and sweat suits.

    The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful. We didn't enjoy the level of noise and loud music, maybe more suitable for much younger people. Also, the fact that our server wanted us to place the whole order at once was very unusual. We are used to ordering appetizers first and then main course, but server would not let us. The service is SLOW! We almost passed out waiting for the appetizers. The food is good, but definitely not worth the price. I feel its good as one time experience if you are ready to spend $$$$$. We won't be returning.
