Place was good not great. It’s better to go for an occasion because the place is neat and vibrant. The food was subpar, nothing to brag about.
Food was excellent but our service was horrific. We noticed our waiter being nice to the other tables and attending them in a nice matter. But since we were colored people “Hispanic” she did not have the same smile with us. Not once did she ask “how’s everything going?” “Do you need a refill!” Overall, the food was excellent but the waitress was not. TAO should teach employees about good customer service no matter what color the customer is because my friends and I still tipped 20%. Thank you
P.S, her name was Klaudia.
The food, ambiance, service, experience was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Tao Downtown to everyone! Be aware that there are lots of teen-25 year olds in cocktail dresses taking pics, 35 YO men doing that bit of networking as they negotiate the difference between being young turks and moving past that stage.
We went extremely late but was a great Saturday night vibe. Ambience in the restaurant is amazing and the vibe was eclectic. Would definitely recommend anyone to try.
It was lit !! Food was great . Would come back over and over
Way to crowded!!! Even though I love this place I waited more than 45 minutes for my table. I had my reservation all set up, but anyways I had to wait that much for my table.
I invited some business clients to celebrate an anniversary and it was not cool to make them wait this much.
Amazing food with wonderful presentation. Very professional server and the ambiance was perfect
Tao handled the reservations seamlessly and provided an excellent experience for a birthday celebration.
Great service waitress was courteous and professional. Will return many more times.
I would recommend Tao as a wonderful place to dine. It was just very annoying to make reservations and still have to wait 25 minutes to be seated.
Reservations were on time for Valentine’s Day I appreciate the environment and food and service was super!!🙌🏻
Waited 40 mins extra to be seated, even though I made reservations.
Had the most amazing experience- will definitely be back.Thank You
Super Dope!!!!! My girlfriend and I loved it!!! The food, the service, the food again! Super amazing!!
Valentines dinner and my wife’s 25th birthday
Tao has a phenomenal ambience and the food was outstanding. The customer service is a potential area for opportunity at this location however. It was not what I expected! I was underwhelmed with that aspect of things. Ensure guests feel that warm and authentic excitement to serve! Attitude is everything in the hospitality industry!
It was fantastic. Second time we have been and were not disappointed.
Food was great to be honest. But the service should been way better for such a Resturant. I feel the service mediocre
Very nice place
We received a corner table perfect as we came with 3 noisy kids :)
I expressed to our waiter I like hot/ spicy, sauce, what was brought had no flavor, I asked again thinking the wrong sauce was brought, his response was they forgot the hot seeds. The sauce was not hot at all with the seeds.
Very disappointed at that after I expressed I would like a hot sauce, especially for the prices at Tao.
If he told me they do not have a hot sauce then I would have understood.
The food was good, my party enjoyed theirs.
I would pass on the food if I ever go back, Club maybe/ drinks.
We celebrated my daughters 18 Birthday, that was her choice to dine, she loved it.
Nice, fun time... place is loud but food and music where awesome
Great time....fabulous food. Great time- Hot scene!
Definitely recommend this restaurant to a younger crowd, pretty loud and packed. Nice scene though and food was amazing, best filet mignon ever!
Music could have been louder, the wait for the table was quite long and lack of available seating at the bar. Lovely restaurant!
Over and over it never disappoints 5 stars as usual
Love this restaurant!!
Amazing place and great atmosphere. The DJ was also playing some awesome music.
Everything was great except for the food. The fried rice was very bland. The meat used in the fried rice was very bland as well. I did not like the sauce used for the salmon and the Mongolian beef was said to be spicy by the waiter and it was not. The food definitely did not meet my expectations. I would not go back.
Amazing food and atmosphere!
Such an amazing dinner experience! The food was sooo good! A bit loud for round table conversations but the warmth of the decor and the delicious food made up for it.
I honestly wouldn’t know where to began. My husband and I had a horrible experience for my 38th Birthday dinner. I feel like all of our food, from drinks to desserts were sub par at best. I can mark TAO off of my list just for having gone, but I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
The restaurant is eye-popping in design. The food was good, not great and while tasty, didn't really taste like the described item but more like their own variation on a familiar dish (think a very expensive PF Chang). The service was negligent. Hard to find the server, who never inquired about how our meal was going and who never delivered the requested silverware (only chopsticks are on the table--which is rather pretentious for a restaurant with not particularly authentic Asian cuisine). But it was the overwhelming noise level that was the major turnoff--it literally had the sound volume of a middle-school cafeteria.
Have been to Tao Downtown many times and actually it is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. This time the service was not the best. We were a party of 4 and had to wait a long time for the menu to be brought, then when food came 2 people were almost done with their main course when the other two people finally got their food. It took forever to get the check. The place was extremely busy (as usual, plus it was restaurant week). Anyways great experience, always amazing food but service was just meh
A bit noisy, but great vibe and food... the starters was awesome:))
Great ambience, cocktails, and appetizers but entrees were lacking. The Pad Thai had way too much sauce and my boyfriend's order was basically just a plate of cheap noodles. I would definitely come again for drinks, vibe and appetizers, though.
Food and ambience was amazing. I would definitely go back again
the best ambient and kitchen , perfect for celebrate aniversari
Fun place to go for a night on the town. The décor and the size of the place are stunning. Huge and grand floor space buzzing with people and loud music. Enormous Buddhas and Hindu sculptures everywhere. The hostesses had a bit of an attitude, and we had to wait half an hour in spite of our reservation. But you come here to see and be seen, so you just have to deal with all of that if you want to have a good time. Don't expect to talk to your friends much. The music is way too loud for that. The food was very good, but not extraordinary considering the prices. We loved the fortune cookie chocolate mousse dessert. Service was friendly, but I did feel a little like I was in a food mill, being churned through. It's all very big and factory like. But in spite of all that, I had a great time and will come back.
