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.

Gave us a tiny table and stuffed the table with big plates making it impossible to enjoy your meal. When I presented the issue, I had to bring it up to upper management before my needs were met. Also I asked 4 times to fix my moving table, before they fixed it. Service has gone down, and it’s sad that they blame covid for poor service. I usually enjoy this place a lot. This time I was very disappointed.

TAO during pandemic is completely different experience, the fact that our server chased us down for a tip when we had already included the gratuity in our bill was laughable. The service has been much better in other occasions but tonight was not a good experience

I requested a specific seating area weeks ahead of time through your App. I Confirmed my request when Tao called to confirm the reservation. When I arrived, they sat my party in a small undesirable area by the kitchen although the area I requested was available. I asked if we could be seated in the requested area. I was told my party couldn’t sit there because we were a party of 4 and that seating area could accommodate up to 6. When I let them know that I had requested that specific area with my reservation, I was told they would do their best to accommodate but no guarantee. 20 minutes later, a party of 3 was seated in the area I had requested.

This was my first public dining experience since March 2020. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We drove up from San Diego and it was absolutely worth it. We can't wait to come back. First-rate in every way.

Fantastic time. Our waiter Tony was amazing! We would come back just to enjoy his wonderful company. I know he had a good time too. We love this spot, we love how we are always treated. We really love the food this time. Last time we were a little disappointed. Given the situation with #CV, Overall, five stars. Highly recommend this place. Staff is wonderful as well. We were really taken care of. $500 well spent

The ambiance and food was fantastic. Our server was amazing in suggestions and everyone was very attentive, making sure to bring fresh plates and take away dirty ones when we finished a dish.

Service was the best part, just amazing!

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!
