TAO Asian Bistro - Los Angeles
Book your next event with us
Our dinner was bad, food doesn’t taste good , lobster roll was horrible, to swallow one piece I had to drink all glass of water. Service was so slow, order coffee in a end after we finished dinner, after 20 min waiting waiter ( no coffee, no dessert menus), I have to remind her about coffee, and she said coffee will come with dessert menu in a end,
but we finished dinner 30 min ago and just seating there for half hour, no coffee, no dessert menu....
so we just pay and leave.
Server messed up order multiple times
Was not up to par with the normal Tao experience
Will not come back unless comped for terrible experience
Such a great location and atmosphere. And the food is delicious. Too many pricy upscale places have just average food but Tao dim sum and main courses are delicious. And the deserts are amazing and presented beautifully. I was there for a birthday and we did a lot of eating and drinking. In the past, waiters and managers would send over free shots or appetizers or desserts. None of that this time. Don’t know if it was an oversight or just belt tightening but it always lent to a celebratory atmosphere when they did that.
This is a must go restaurant. Staff was very nice and had great customer service.
Everything was Amazing!
But they managed to fix it
Went here to celebrate my birthday. The food was amazing. Definitely recommend the beef waguu. It was a party of 8 we were seated by the large Buddha statute in the back in a semi private. The waitress was friendly and very helpful. The service of how fast the food came out was great. The party had two kids both 8 years old and I would say the atmosphere for them was good. They enjoyed the decor and the coi fish pond we were seated next too.
Every dish we ordered was very sweet with heavy sauces.
Love Tao! Great food and drinks, friendly staff. A lot of noise but still not a problem to talk to eachother. Recommend the molten Chocolate Cake for dessert, it’s The best!!
Excellent Atmosphere, food fantastic
make sure to order the Desert Platter, and if nothing else either the Lava Cake or the Fortune Cookie
both are not to be believed
Amazing food amazing service and great atmosphere. Love this place
L’endroit est sublime par contre nous avons attendu 45 minute pour nos plats car apparemment le serveur a oublié nos commandes. Donc je suis déçu la dessus. Le serveur nous a offert un dessert pour ce rattraper.
Nice l loved the place fast service delicious food.
From the moment I arrived they tried to rush me to choose all the courses. Insisted on and on. Felt coerced. The restaurant had just opened and was empty. First time there and won't come back.
One of my favorite restaurants. They have the best food and staff
Great atmosphere, lovely food, a bit pricey but I suppose you’re paying a bit extra for the great view
It’s so beautifully set up and it’s a restaurant and lounge. It’s very loud and fun. The crowd was perfect and upscale dress is a must. The food and drinks were delicious. Will be coming back for sure :)
Food never disappoints. Thank u to the staff for accommodating my mom who could not go down the stairs. We got to tour the kitchens :))
The giant fortune cookie is always a trip. We loved everything including the lamb chops, sweet and sour pork, the chicken lollipops etc.
We went for 2 events , one birthday and one for becoming a doctor. I called in advance and let them know when i order cakes to bring one for bday and one congrats . But the waiter brought 2 cakes with 2 happy birthdays. But wasn’t a big deal but would appreciate if they got the correct ones. And we felt rushed all the time they were are u done, dude relax we ordered bunch of food and we want to enjoy it.
I had a great time celebrating my birthday here. The food was good and drinks were great. Server was attentive. It’s loud but I enjoyed the vibe. My birthday dessert plate was amazing. The only down side was that my reservation was 10 pm and we did not get seated until 10:30 pm. We were told the party ahead of us arrived late, but overall it was a good experience for me.
Amazing food and the restaurant is also very beautiful.
Food, service, and ambiance was perfect!! Thank you for taking care of us!
Tasty food!!! Great service!! Surrounded by beautiful huge Buddha statues!!
The food was awesome, as was the service! The drinks were a little pricey, but I guess that's to be expected...at least they were delicious!
Would love to go back to this amazing, classy and unique restaurant. The food was delish
My first visit to LA with my girlfriend. We love this city and this is now one of our favorite spots to dine.
Excellent food, excellent service and amazing venue!
Nice ambience. Food and Service was good.
From the shorter of the two hostess’s being extremely rude Upon arrival, table not being ready, to the kitchen forgetting a few our meals bad service experience. If it wasn’t for our waiter comping a portion of our meal I’d give service 0 stars. Busters and additional help were phenomenal and on top of everything. Not certain that I’d ever go back based on this experience unfortunately we were a party of 7 and feel the server should have been more attentive or had help.
Fabulous food, outstanding service, beautiful decor, lively crowd—great experience overall! Will definitely return soon. Thanks, TAO!
Food was excellent but service was Outstanding I believe his name is Jeremy we were table 7 Sunday night at 7 o’clock Will be going back very soon
Overall great experience. Waiter suggested many plates and they were all great. Lobster egg rolls and Lobster fried rice are a must.
Everything was great. Our server fantastic.
worst service ever___ no words ___over price panda express
The server was very brash and abrupt. She didn’t refill or offer to refill drinks (cocktails, water) and when asked questions she seemed as if she wanted to leave the whole time. The food was delicious but the portions- even for sharing are a bit small. The ambiance is great- chic and lively.
Very cool, hip setting w very nice ambience & people watching atmosphere. A place you can feel comfortable in a nice pair of jeans & casual collared shirt or suit & tie.
Also liked the way the open space slopes down, from street level to the main dining area & stage, with nicely terraced seating areas along the way...
Sever was very unfriendly and short. Asked if we were new to the restaurant and didn’t go over the menu. Only allowed us to order at once and took the menus. Tables next to us were treated differently.
Great food. Desserts were amazing. Spectacular service not only by our server but everyone working there kept every table in check to make sure everything was running smoothly. We went on a weekday so they were definitely more attentive and the restaurant wasn’t crazy busy. I would definitely go back there but for sure only on a weekday.
Great food and great atmosphere.
