Came here to take my girlfriend out for her birthday, place was unbelievable! We sat on the steps looking down at the main floor and had a great time. Service was great and food was even better. Going to be hard to top next years bday dinner...might just have to come back.

Brought visitors from out of town (Germany), they wanted a restaurant that they’d never forget in NY and this was the perfect way to end their vacation. The waitress was friendly and attentive, the food was outstanding and as always the restaurant had the perfect ambience.

This was the last place I expected my lobster to be over cooked at, the flavors of the lobster were also overpowering the taste of the lobster. The snapper was excellent. Felt a bit rushed tho, idk if our waiter was new or he just had extra energy but he certainly was attentive. Is there a such thing as being too attentive? Otherwise everything was good.

The main course arrived 4 minutes after the appetizers. Felt like they were trying to rush us out of there, similar to a fast casual turn and burn restuarant.

Not our first visit. Tao did not disappoint. Food was excellent from appetizers to dessert.Service was quick. Beef and Broccoli was fantastic as well as the baby bok choy, sizzling chicken appetizer and the glazed salmon. Would recommend. Great atmosphere, music, etc.

The decor and atmosphere is the best I've seen. Amazing, cool, beautiful design. The food is equally amazing and delicious. We ordered a number of dishes for the table and we all shared. The food is so interesting that it's much better to share than to order your own meal. We had the following: edamame, spicy tuna tartare on crispy rice - amazing - pad thai - delicious - beef and broccoli - yummy - crispy orange chicken - OMG - charred brussels sprouts - great - and the chef yoshi roll - superb! For dessert, the molten chocolate cake was outrageous. We can't wait to go back!

I liked the food and the vibes of the restaurant. But our waiter was a little rude, and they rushed us to finish eating and leave. I also ended up waiting for a table for a long time because two people in my group were a little late which was annoying.
