Beautiful and great service
Too overpriced and food is not worth it. Food was pretty basic nothing too special
The hostess was very nasty to me when I came to the hostess station to check if my table was ready for my 11:15pm Reservations around 11:25pm.
Amazing food, amazing service and amazing atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Very cold the air conditioning
Great place! We went there for a friend 40th birthday and it was a wonderful experience!
Perfect for a buzzy night out. My partner and I were there for her 30th birthday. Food and service were brilliant.
It’s definitely a high energy, loud environment. Give it a miss if you’re looking for a quiet dinner. Great food though.
Music a bit too laud. You have to scream to hear eachother.
This place is awesome! From the decoration to the food to the service. I was celebrating my friend's birthday and expected to pay at least $200 but I actually paid way less than that. We ordered 2 different appetizers, 2 main courses, dessert, and wine. It was a great experience, would definitely recommend!! Make sure you wear business casual.
When you make a reservation at 10, you don’t expect to get a text at 11 saying your table is ready. We had already left, found a different restaurant and ordered. Ridiculous.
Everything was fantastic apart from we were seated at 11pm when our booking was at 10pm. We were not apologised to at all and were made to wait standing at the bar. Incredibly rude front of house.
For the price of the food and drinks I was expecting better execution. The sushi was so so and the drinks way over priced. But I knew we would be paying for the atmosphere. I would recommend it for anyone with there special someone.
Only problem was that our seat was too close to the couple beside us who tried listening in on our conversation.
Highly recommended for a special night we came from England.
es espectacular, pasamos felices, aunque me gustaría que fueran mas especiales cuando se va a celebrar algo especial
The location was really Amazing, the food really good, the dessert also. There was only one negative thing: the a/c. Too cold for us, onestly.
As always food was extremely consistent The service was amazing
Great Time, a Little Bit loud. But the Atmosphere is stunning
Very nice place! Food isn’t in small portions. Big enough to get your moneys worth. Very nice ambience.
The interior of the restaurant is very well thought out and planned.
Overall fantastic experience!
I don’t have a bad word to say. Everything was outstanding from the drinks to the small plates to the main course and straight through to dessert.
My sister and I took my mother out to Tao for her birthday. My mother absolutely loved the restaurant. From the food to the service, everything was wonderful and that says a lot coming from me since I manage restaurants in TS. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for good ambiance, great food and great service.
A perfect day in the city. Saw Betrayal then met up with my friend for dinner at Tao. Our experience was wondrous. The venue, service and food was outstanding. We celebrated each other’s birthdays and landed on the fortune cookie dessert which was excellent. The staff was amazingly attentive. We were giddily happy so we thank you for the ending of our perfect day.
We had to wait for 2 hours after our scheduled reservation time. The hostess was rude and the manager had to come and solve it. Im a well known New York visitor and will not recommend TAO to my friend anymore - i would tell them to go somewhere where they get value for their money.
My fav restaurant anytime I visit NYC. The downtown location I prefer to the uptown location & will make a greater effort to get there just for the vibes. Thanks to your great staff for your consistency!
Seating too crowded, too noisy
Everything was amazing the only complaint I have is that I wanted to have one of my dishes wrapped up but they took it before I could say anything.
Highly recommend. Wonderful food, service and ambiance!
Birthday celebration. Had a great time
Bad service and food wasn’t any particular. But, cool place for late diner and drinks with friends.
Every time I’ve gone to Tao I’ve had a great time. The overall energy of the restaurant is very hip and cool, and the food is really good! Definitely pricey but pretty on par with other similar restaurants in NYC.
The ambience was great! Food was delish, family style. Portions are a little small. Sea bass appetizer was AMAZING!
Good affordable high end vibe. Music was obnoxiously loud and did not go with the theme. Having a conversation was difficult.
Waitress was kind of rude.
Was very nice experience until we were done eating and suddenly we were being rushed off the table. My water got cleared before I was done etc and waiter was long gone after food was served. I understand the need for tables but was a bit ridiculous after spending 500 for 4 people. That ruined what would have been a great night.
The service was amazing, food is great and the ambiance was excellent.
Fantastic food and atmosphere - wine prices a bit too high
It was phenomenal! Food was prepared well and came out fast. The ambiance was amazing with incredible lighting.
We where being rushed and the service was unpleasant
Other than the clueless waitress we had during this visit, TAO is always a good time and great eats!
