I had nice evening with my friends and the food is decent but the energy and the ambiance was really nice!
We have been to Tao before and had a lovely time and have it 5/5. Sadly this time the service was poor, they never gave us a new knife and fork after our starters left our dirty ones and placed them on the table.
Once we had eaten they never wiped the table, then waited 15 minutes for our bill as our server wasn't to be seen.
When your paying the prices your paying you expect a outstanding service to go with it.
Food lacked flavour. However service was great. The restaurant had a great ambiance and decor.
It's a great place to experience but unfortunately our waiter was not so good. When asked direct questions wasn't helpful and in one particular instance gave untrue info.
First time here and I loved everything about it!!!!
My experience dining in Tao was amazing. Everyone was extremely pleasant and made me feel very comfortable. The place is beyond beautiful and I can’t wait to return. I can definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
5 stars every time we dine here with large or small groups..
Service was terrible. It was my first time at the restaurant, I didn’t know the menu. The waitress seemed extremely impatient to explain and recommend the options in the menu. She seemed to be in a hurry, would tell us she would give us time to think after 1 minute.
Great night celebrating 16th birthday with friends.
The only downside was that the waitress was not very friendly. Otherwise it was a nice experience
Food was good. Service was quick but for the price it was mediocre.
The food and my server were great however I made these reservations ahead to celebrate my birthday in a fun yet classy manner and we were moved to a table right behind the bar ... our server kept getting bumped by people standing at the bar and she had to squat in a skirt just so we could hear her. There were 5 of us and our plates of food could barely fit on the very very small cocktail table. It was also dark so we all used our cell phone flashlights to see. I made the best of the situation since it was my birthday but we had all travelled over an hour to come here and I expected much more from this beautiful location.
The ambience is lovely but the service was very poor. We weren’t checked on, we weren’t asked if we wanted any more drinks, one of our mains was inedible but by the time they checked on us we had finished everything else. The waitress didn’t engage with us at all, even when she brought the bill (30 mins after our plates were cleared) the dish we sent back was still on the bill, she didn’t even ask what had happened (as she hadn’t been the one to clear it away), no apology. She had no interest in giving good customer service or rectifying our bad experience.
We weren’t going to complain but at the end she was so rude we asked for a manager and explained everything and he offered us some free drinks, However we didn’t accept this as we were so let down by the whole experience we just wanted to leave. We won’t be returning.
Great experience/waiter/people who worked there. Quick service. Went over and above to make a great time
Gestion du service est à revoir .....
Great. Chicken was a bit under cooked but the experience made up for it
Very nice and amazing place! Delicious food! Nice people
Food was nothing special and overpriced. The patrons made for interesting people watching.
Excellent service, great vibe, amazing food. If your looking for a place to go on a date. This is a a top choice out of all the spots in NYC
Amazing venue great at atmosphere and music.
Food was good would definitely come again.
Great place all around, delicious, great atmosphere and good service !
Great energy, servers are on point. Service ran like a well oiled machine. The food was phenomenal as usual. I don’t know how they’re on point every time we do. They never disappoint!
The ambiance is Wow ! A different experience when you dine in. Great when you’re celebrating something
Food and atmosphere was great!
Third time here. The first two were amazing. This time not so much. The two dishes we had were just ok. Additionally, the sushi and sashimi, our waitress kept apologizing for “was delayed due to a back up in the kitchen”. It wasn’t busy when we ordered. For the price you pay here this isn’t acceptable.
I highly recommend
AmaZing food and excellent service!
very nice ambiance,
food is good but over priced for some of the mains
This was an awesome place, very beautiful, very NYC. We went celebrating my husband Birthday and it was very nice. The food was delicious.
Great dining experience for a birthday celebration.
NO attention to details or service. We were celebrating a Birthday which was noted on the Reservation however no acknowledgement. Food - Fair, nothing outstanding. Very dark and dim lighting, giving a sexy appeal, but too noisy to be intimate.
We had a fabulous night at Tao. The place is beautiful and full of energy. Loved the cocktails, the food and the music. It was a great night time.
This dining experience was so odd. More like a Vegas night than NYC. Food was very mediocre but the cocktails were tasty and the atmosphere was definitely different. The crowd was filled with couples who seemed much more interested in their Insta feed than the food.
Excellent evening, quality food with a great vibe.
What an AMAZING venue!
I was very disappointed in the manner in which I was treated. I arrived on time for a 6:15 reservation. The Hostess would not seat us until the whole party was there. When the third person did arrive at 6:45 (due to train issues)the Hostess explained that because we were late we would have to leave the table by 8:30. She also stated that this time frame would be adequate enough to complete our dinner. Although the waiter was very nice and attentive to our table, I did feel as though we were being rushed. We did leave the table by 9:00. We then went to the lounge area . We ordered two drinks, and when we closed the tab around 10:00, the server stated if we were no longer drinking we would have to move because she needed the space for other guests. When I go out for the evening after working a long week I do not want to be rushed or asked to leave. This kind of treatment is rude and unacceptable! The food and cocktails are definitely on the expensive side. After spending a total of $430, I left feeling insulted and just stressed over the whole evening!
