Everything was good except the people seated next to us were extremely loud that us and neighboring tables kept looking at each other in discomfort. Also, I told the restaurant that it was my girlfriends birthday and they came out to ask which dessert we wanted in front of her. That ruined the surprise.

Gorgeous setting and great atmosphere. But the food was not nice. Some inedible and lacking flavour and seasoning. And then three times more expensive than other local restaurants offering incredible quality food. You are definitely paying for the experience. Not for me I'm afraid.

Food lacked taste and freshness
Several of us had severe stomach aches
Way overpriced
If not for dessert would have been a complete disaster

The overall experience at TAO was ok.
I think its a pity that the attitude and way of service is bad for the kitchen since the food is amazing and we loved every single bite of it. We came to have a nice dinner but we felt we were rushed since we were done in 1 hour. (Had 3 courses shared) Staff was literally asking other servers if we were done and as soon we put our chopsticks down the plate was gone. And this continued with everything during the dinner. Its not ok, you don’t have time to even enjoy.

The service was great. The hosts had positive attitudes and the waitress was knowledgeable regarding the menu. The decor was pleasing to the eye and the other patrons were kind. A great place to celebrate special occasions or a date night.

The waitress was nice.. She could of helped us more with the menu. I ordered a lot of different dishes and asked her to bring them out in the order she thought was best but she brought it all out at same time.

Loved Tao. Food was good. I think you pay more for the name/brand then the food.

The place looks amazing. A lot of birthdays were celebrated there the night I went. Be prepared to spend a good deal of money. The entrees do not come with rice or vegetables. The food was delicious. The descriptions of the food in the menu are not very, well, descriptive. I can’t speak for all of the wait staff, but our waitress wasn’t very helpful with the descriptions either. She, didn’t have an attitude about it, she just didn’t describe things well. For instance, I asked how the beef Mongolian was prepared & she said, “Medium.” They should either put better descriptions in the menu, or get the wait staff more acquainted with the food. I’d advise getting 1 rice dish for a table of 4-6 people, especially if you’ve had appetizers. We ordered 2 & it too much. The food, itself, was great. Both the presentation & the taste. The cocktails were good too. I would definitely go back.

Went to Tao downtown to celebrate a birthday weekend. Of all the many choices of places to eat I’m glad we chose Tao. The atmosphere, food, service, everything was great. Can’t wait to go back.
