Food is always great here, but nothing beats the service in this place. Hands down the best service in NY, and our server Amanda was an absolute doll !
Experience so much better than the last time. The outdoor dining experience was subpar. The food was delicious and came in a timely manner. Back on the top of my list.
Had a bday dinner for my partner. It was great, food was delicious, service was great, our server he was kind and polite. Had a bday surprise but was surprised they didnt sing, im assuming its part of the restaurant the no singing but still was cute and elegant. Everything was perfect.
The service was horrible for them prices is should be good service
We was waiting 45 min for the waitress to come to the table to take our orders
We told the manager and thy just send her down no sorry no nothing
The place was really good. Went there with someone special for an special occasion.
I did not like the rush they told me that I can only done in for 1h:30 min
The food was amazing. Top Notch. The crispy rice with the tuna tartare is outstanding. Another favorite is the yellowtail sashimi and the steamed vegetable dumplings for appetizers. Must try!!!
Food was amazing! Waiter was very nice and recommended our entire meal. Overall experience was amazing. Definitely recommend
It was good. We felt our waitress was moving a bit fast trying to get the order
Waiter could have checked to see if we needed drinks refilled, paid us not much attention
Atmosphere was amazing service was great food was delicious drinks even better definitely can’t wait to go back
it was great! They did a great job of trying to keep the experience the same.
Amazing food, the sushi rolls, dumplings are divine, the kober ricebis outstanding!
The restaurant was amazing! Food was great!! Service awesome!!!
However, New York SUCKS w the 11pm curfew!! Ruined the whole vibe! Last call was at 10pm 🤬🤬
Overall great experience and dinner. I wish the time limit was extended to two hours, but I understand TAO has a 1.5 hour time limit as many NYC restaurants do now opening at 50% capacity. The ambiance and music made it wonderful to sit and enjoy with friends, family, or a date. The establishment is gigantic and there are staff members every step of the way from the entrance to coat check to hostesses. Bring some cash in order to tip the bathroom attendant who was very helpful and showed you the way to the stalls. Every dish was delicious. Lo mein was wonderful as well (no pic). I posted a pic of every other dish that we ordered.
It was required to leave a $20 deposit to reserve our dinner after paying my bill the $20 deposit was not applied as a credit and I attempted to call the restaurant directly but they dont have anyone to speak to
My son enjoyed his 17th birthday dinner at Tao Downtown.
I’ve enjoyed dinner here plenty of times and it never disappoints! The staff always go above and beyond to make every customer feel welcome and special ... and even during the craziness of pandemic dining it still managed to feel just as special! Well done TAO!
Amazing as always!
Love it here!
I went with a friend to celebrate our birthdays. Our waiter, PJ, honestly made the night so memorable. He helped us out with the menu, gave amazing recommendations, and just overall was great.
It was fairly busy, every table was packed, but it wasn’t loud to the point you couldn’t speak in your own groups.
perfect time to go eat at 7pm. perfect time to order food
My experience at Tao Downtown was very memorable. What a beautiful restaurant, and the food is amazing!
Really great food, great ambiance, and overall very high quality experience.
They rush you in and out. You place orders and they don't even tell you the food is not available. Until you ask where is your food.
Our server was attentive and made great suggestions!, she insured we had anything we needed even before asking! The manager on duty was also great! He was able to accommodate our group to a table of our preference and insured we were comfortable.
Very nice restaurant. Service was awesome! Drinks were too expensive.
Our waitress was unwelcoming he was very rusty. Kept reminding us this is the last order to place cause the kitchen was closing. He looked like we were bothering him even though it was his job to serve us. Other then that the food was very good and it was a good experience overall
Fantastic experience at TAO Downtown! Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes Asian fusion food!
Food was prepared professionally and everything tasted great!
From the moment my mother and I walked in for her birthday celebration...the encounter even with the host was just a rude demeanor. Said we had to be done eating by 9:45pm. each table was timed. Our waiter was a guy and he was extremely rude and nonchalant about our table. I wanted to be ready to order food and drink all at once since we were on a time frame. So when he asked if we wanted cocktails my mom ordered hers and i told him i could order our food as well too and he said WAIT very rudely with his hands. Said only drinks first. First off i don't even drink alcohol. His whole service towards us was just horrible. He was taking forever to be delivered to the table. I also stated to him it was my moms bday and he said she could pick a dessert and a candle would come lit with it. IT did not, the man who brought us the giant fortune cookie was kind enough to take it back and fix it. He really did not deserve a tip and i wanted to make this a special night for my moms bday. Go somewhere else to celebrate, not here. The view is nice inside but our service was horrible and the fried lobster roll.
It was decent food, nice ambience. But it doesn't take into consideration people who don't eat pork and I understand there are time requirements because of covid restrictions but it felt very rushed and like we could not even truly enjoy it. It was my first time here and I could not truly enjoy the experience.
For covid guidelines was extremely poor, felt on safe several times staff not properly wearing masks, tables slammed together, larger gathering not good ventilation
Service exceptional. Food / Drinks were exceptional!
We sat outside and I'm usually a bit hesitant about out door seating but the set up, precautions, and spacing was perfect. Privacy?... exceptional
We dined outdoors due to COVID. Beautiful setup - lots of fresh air and heat. Food was delicious as always! Our server, Savannah, was spectacular!
Was put for a birthday in a side room next to a large loud party instead of the nice main room , was sad to spend her bday that way
Beautiful place and food was great. Server was very helpful.
Absolutely fantastic service. Large portion sizes
I love eating at this restaurants... the food matches the ambiance.
Our waiter was great and knowledgeable about the food which was great since we had a few first timers in the group! He really made our experience memorable and super easy !
