Everything was great except the brown fried rice. Over cooked. Very hard
Great Bar staff, excellent drinks. Waiter was informative and really helped our dining experience. We will dine here again!
Everything was phenomenal! From the food to the atmosphere, to the music during dinning! Definitely going to be going back
Great server. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. Food outstanding.
Beautiful interior design and the artwork peppered around the restaurant is amazing. The food was perfect
Amazing food and decor. Hip and trendy- great service if it’s earlier in the evening, bad service if it’s after 8:40pm- too busy and staff will be flustered. They forgot to give us utensils so we stared at the yummy food but couldn’t eat it til they came back.
Do not combine all sushi orders into 1 big plate, confusing when people order different roles.
It was great
Beautiful interesting room. Very energetic. Food is very tasty. On a scale of 1-5 it’s a 3.5 in my opinion. It serves family style dishes. Be careful not to order too much, our waiter encouraged us to order more food than we could eat. We had a lot of doggy bags and an expensive check.
Excellent great staff and service.
Wait wasnt long at all and the food was great plus waitress was very friendly and helpful
Amazing place! Great food, good music and great for a girls night out.
It's a fun place to go for a cool vibe, but probably would never go again. Nothing especially noteworthy cuisine wise that would make me want to revisit.
It was perfect from decorations , service food can’t ask for more. Keep it up.
The food was great and the drinks were top notch. Our server was great as well. My only complaint was that Thai Buddha Chicken was not on the menu. I love that at Tao Vegas and was disappointed to find out it wasn’t on the Chicago menu
OK food, seriously over priced. Don’t come here for a full dinner (appetizers, entrees, dessert and drinks). Your bill will be minimum $250 for 2. Come here for a few apps a few drinks around 11 pm then stay to enjoy the club.
Upon arrival staff from Valet to receptionist was polite and professional. The music was nice and the ambiance was very relaxed. I will be going back.
A lot of fun cool place
The ambiance and food were great. Tao also had really good customer service.
It was a pleasure, everything was just as expected...
Very different in appearance from Las Vegas. A brilliant reimagining of the former clubbing space exquisite presentation and execution. Asian goodies will love
The price is very pricey.. I went during the extended restaurant week where was stated on th NBC news station.. the restaurant did not honor the extension.. if I had known about them not honoring it .. I would not have gone to this restaurant.
Everything about Tao restaurant was amazing
Everything was out of this world fantastic. My only complaint is one of the workers elbowed me in the back of the head and didn't even realize it. Next time I go I will bring a helmet.
We enjoyed the food and our server was very good. He had knowledge of the entire menu and was able to give great suggestions. The Tao Tini was delicious. We tried this restaurant because of a couple Dj envy and Gia Casey and I appreciate this recommendation. We will definitely return.
Bring your wallet, but I highly recommend. Great food, great atmosphere.
We ordered a Thai chicken and a lobster rice that wasn't very good (don't recommend it). The service was very slow.
Loved everything we had at Tao! Tuna Pringles, dumplings, filet, spicy tuna on crispy rice, creme brûlée(size of a small pizza)! Will definitely return, you can’t go wrong with Tao.
I really liked the Phuket cocktail.
The waiter Walter did an amazing job, he made the experience worthwhile! He is an amazing waiter
As I start to write about the worst/very unprofessional dining experience at Tao Chicago,
Honestly, if I could I would want to give this place zero star. From our experience last night at Tao was unacceptable in many aspects.
1. reservation delay - We made a reservation, but we weren't seated till about an hour later.
And as we patiently got our water-down drinks at the bar,
Bartender was very unfriendly for no reason.
(Maybe because we weren't cute guys)
2. entree brought out before appetizer - which never happens, and absurd excuses about why sushi entree had to be sent before the appetizers.
(Because sushi gets cold...)
Really??!!!!!???? And took an hour to get any food.
And no one cared.
3. wrong appetizer - my friend ordered vegetable roll was served chicken gyoza.
4. terrible food - quality, and taste of the food was unacceptable. Dishes were way too sweet, and seasoned heavenly. You couldn't taste the actual taste vegetables or meat.
None of us finished more than half of the entree, which none of the wait staff cared to ask.
5. no dessert * free drinks but only serves 4 out of 5 of us. It was obvious that we weren't getting any service or food that we deserved. And when we couldn't get the desert we ordered because they miss calculated counts, they offered free dessert platter. (Which wasn't that impressive, because it was just three scoops of ice cream and inedible huge fortune cookie, fried doughnuts.
At this point we just wanted to leave.
6. promised dessert takes 1 hour to wait for
And while we were just sitting and waiting for our dessert platter, it took another hour, and no one came to check on us. And one of my friend left!
7. manager ignores us and storms off
When we tried to talk to one of the manager about our experience, he didn't even care and left while we were still trying to explain.
8. cant even pick up the check to leave
We wanted to end the night, and just go home.
And it took forever to get the check.
Had an 8pm reservation but didn't get seated until 8:45. Service was horrible. We had to constantly remind him to bring out our drinks (even water). Took forever to get our check. We left the restaurant at almost 12am. Food was good but for the prices you pay, you should expect better service.
I was amazed with the restaurant set up. It's like from a james bond movie, you walk around the corner and there is this beautiful looking restaurant with the statue you have to see it to understand what I'm talking about. Very powerful presentation I don't think anyone can match it in Chicago. Atmosphere was good very energetic, cocktails are good and food is good. We tried restaurant week menu so can't say much about food until we go back and try some exclusive dishes they offer.
I had a reservation at 8pm and didn’t get seated until 8:20, but we did not get accommodated for waiting.
I had the Restaurant week meal and my wife had a meal from the menu. Hers was much better. I will be back to try your regular food. The place looks great but it’s a bit too noisy for our tastes.
said they would course our order since you have to order everything up front but everything came out at once. service was lacking. disappointing
