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.

This was first time in TAO Asian Bistro, and it was absolutely amazing! Delicious food, good service, our server was really nice and careful young lady. She was very informative regarding menu and our request for Birthday dessert.
The restaurant itself beautiful inside, with nice red chandeliers and dark light environment, music was okay, not very loud which is really nice, you can talk and not scream in each other ears.
Thank you for amazing dinner.

The food was so delicious. The ambiance was great because me and my girls wanted to eat at a place that was elegant and had a whole vibe. It exceeded our expectations. The service was great too and everyone was so accommodating.

We love Tao. The ambiance, the service, the attention to detail, the food ... everything is top notch. Sexiest restaurant in LA, by a long shot.

Been a huge fan of the Vegas venue and i'm embarrassed to say I wasn't aware of the LA location. Had date night here with the wife last week and it was fantastic. Already booked again for next week with clients for business.

TAO has invested significantly in the local neighborhood with several other restaurants - looking forward to trying Beauty and Essex a few doors down next with the Wife but we are looking forward to bringing our folks to TAO in September when they visit from the UK!

I took my daughters (ages 13 and 15) to TAO as a celebratory dinner for an amazing school year. The next morning my youngest daughter wakes up to ask if we have a TAO in MD. I told her no but we can try the ones on the east coast when they do good in school! Thank you for an awesome experience!!

It was REALLY bad, I notified them three times that it was a birthday surprise and the waitress never gave us the cake. The service was really bad and the food mediocre.

We waited an hour for a table once we were seated it took for ever to get the food . One of the rolls had hair in it and the waiter was not knowledgeable about the food as far as allergy registrations. Very disappointed!!

Beautiful restaurant. Not quite as vast as the NYC location, but still very impressive and cool. The food was also delicious even though I ordered the most basic thing on the menu (sweet and sour pork). I loved our curved table on the stairs and our waiter was attentive and wonderful. Great experience to kick off a great night.
