Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 60,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge and nightclub. Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi.

Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar.

I had a reservation for 2 at 9:30 didn’t get seated until 10:05 because hostess said they were trying to get us a table cleaned all the while we watch others get seated. Food was awesome.

I went there for an anniversary dinner with my wife and we had a show to catch after at 9 pm.

Reservation was at 7:15. Seated at 7:40....apps arrived at 8:15....dinner had not arrived by 8:45 so we had to close our skip our dinner and run to our show which thankfully was only 15 minutes away and had not started yet.

Bad experience. They were slammed and understaffed.

I’ve been trying to come to Tao’s for over 10 years. I finally made it in and it was amazing! All the suggestions from our server were spot on! Everything was delicious!

The service at Tao was outstanding. Our server recommended food that we enjoyed and when things got busy another server jumped in so we did not have to wait for drinks. The food was good but not as amazing as I was expecting for the price. The drinks were well made and tasty. The noise level was very high which make conversation quite difficult and was probably my only real complaint.

The food is slow. You are treated like its a cattle car. We arrived at 7:15 for a 7:30 reservation and finally seated at 8:15. Food arrived at 9:05. Amazing that others have rated this poorly managed restaurant so high.

We reserved a special birthday table 3 weeks in advance and we were seated in a close bistro bench with no privacy. My elbows touched the people seated next to me.


We attended 5 other restaurants in las vegas this week and this was THE WoRST.

Don’t waist your time.

We got there right as they opened for the evening. Seating was wide open. They offered us first a table next to the restrooms! We said no, please us away from the restroom. The guy had to get permission to move us. So then they put us at a table literally right next to the open kitchen!! We said, PLEASE can you put us over in the other side where its wide open and a few people are seated? Several very nice booths were open the entire time we were there. They put us in a far corner near the museum like display, right on the end near a server's station. Three lousy table seating offerings. We were tired at that point so just sat there. We had really looked forward to this restaurant. The food did not disappoint, and our server was excellent and attentive. So overall I would say it was good, but the booth at the wall would have made us much happier customers! Please save your worst tables for walk ins or when you are crowded!!!!

Excellent food, great service. The rice with a fried egg they cut up in front of you. Also the shrimp and crab sushi is excellent. The basic chicken dish, is okay, but probably the weakest item on the menu

Asian fusion but uses poor quality Tuna disguises that with Poke tuna. Charged extra for regular non-spicy because "it would cost more to get fresh fish" per the waiter/server. The dessert was cold when should have been warm. Rice pudding was fair at best. Disappointing experience.

Great, authentic Peking (Beijing) duck, with proper crepes (not dumb buns), green onion, and hoisin - yum. $80 for 2 people in theory but it was the only food I ordered and I ate the whole duck!

Bella was our waitress and she was very sweet. The restaurant was extremely busy but she and the cooking staff didn’t miss a beat. All our drinks and food arrived quickly and tasted great. Kudos to the TAO team for running a super smooth operation. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Vegas and I’ll make it a point to visit every time I’m here.

Awesome place. Best to Go on a night when the club is open because you get preferential entrance but I went on a night when the club was closed.

The food was excellent but my server was not friendly.
Dud his job but nit personable. It was my daughter’s birthday also. He brought a beautiful giant fortune cookie but dud nit extend a kind wish. He just placed it in front of her.
Again, the food was excellent. The atmosphere delightful. The waiter, ruined the birthday experience and excitement!

We unfortunately had a terrible experience here. Came for our sons 21st birthday. Arrived on time for our reservation. Told to wait in bar area. Waiting fifteen minutes then given a table in the bar area and told that if we wanted a table in the restaurant we would have to wait longer and no guarantee how much longer that would be. Door was left open to outside next to our table so people going to upstairs club could come in thru that side door. We literally froze sitting at the table in the bar with no view of the restaurant and couldn’t really even enjoy our meals or our sons special fortune cookie dessert. So disappointed. My son had never been before but I had taken his sister for her birthday and talked it up so much that he really looked forward to going there and I felt so bad we had such an awful experience!

I’m incredibly frustrated with TAO. It’s the 6 th time we’ve ventured for a birthday and I always request a “nice” table.
Each time we’ve been seated at the table closest to the kitchen
We are not the time to be asked to move
Also we were told servers had not arrived yet go to bar only to order drinks get a table and people were finishing up so there were servers and people at decent tables and booths IF we do return I will request viewing our table.

My husband and I had a 8:30pm reservation. We arrived 15 minutes ahead of time. We got there a d was told our table wasn't ready yet which is understandable as we did arrive early. The host said we could sit in the lounge area order drinks until our table was ready. This is where our experience started to go downhill. A group of 8 people were sitting next to us the waitress for this area waited on them hand and foot made sure their drinks were taken care of etc however not once did she come over to my husband and I and get our drinks order. She would periodically look at us then turn away. I even had the drink menu in my hand to let them know I wanted a drink. On top of this a younger couple came in 10 minutes after us didn't have a reservation and was seated before us. (I know they didn't have a reservation because the host gave them a buzzer, they didn't give us one because they said they would text us when our table was ready) we sat in the lounge for over 40 minutes before another waitress checked in on us and asked if we wanted anything to drink. I told her she was the 1st waitress to ask us anything in 40 minutes. She was very apologetic by the time we started to give her our drink order our table was ready. We were sat in a corner booth which wasn't a problem for us. Our waiter Justin (I believe that is his name) was amazing he could tell we were upset and he went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. This was my 1st time in Vegas and 1st at TAO as I have always wanted to go and this was for my birthday. However 1st impressions are everything I will not return to TAO. My husband and I felt very unwelcomed as if we don't have enough money to be there......
