We had a great time celebrating a birthday at Tao. Chris was our server and he was great! The food was also good, cocktails were very yummy! The perfect spot for a night out or special occasion.
Awesome we had a great date night just like out of a movie
Came here for a birthday and the Food was overpriced and not even that good. The waitress was rude and didn’t seem to be happy to be helping us. When told that we didn’t want any drinks the vibe changed as if she didn’t even want to bother with us anymore. Won’t recommend to a friend or anyone for that matter. Definitely Not worth the amount of money spent there.
The venue was stunning but the food was very poor.
Wonderful and great experience, the food portions was ok the price though was high but for the music sitting and environment it was totally worth it and It was truly an amazing experience.
Such a fantastic dining experience. Everything from start to finish was great! We ordered the spicy tuna tartare on crispy rice, lobster and shrimp spring rolls, angry dragon roll, and black pepper chicken. All were so delicious- but our favorite was the tuna tartar on crispy rice; definitely order this! All the cocktails we tried were also good- my favorite was the berries & bubbles. Service was also great- all the food came out timely and spaced out nicely, and cocktails were flowing. We will absolutely be returning.
Excellent elegant hot great environment friendly alluring
Amazing!! Everything was spot on!
everything was not unforgettable, the quality of the food was not so high
Fantastic food and ambiance. Tao in NYC or Vegas is a must for all!
We celebrated my daughter’s 16th birthday in NYC and she chose Tao for dinner. The ambiance is very amazing. However it should be noted how rude the receptionist staff is- maybe because they are responsible for rushing people in and out- but it ruins the mood. The bar staff is just as bad- we sat in some seats that we were told we need to be out of by a certain time, just rushing us to get out. I’d rather spend my money somewhere where my family feels welcome & encouraged to enjoy the experience.
Once you get beyond the front of the house, the experience improves dramatically w actually very good service.
We had a reservation. We were initially seated at a very low slung table (think tatami mats) in the back of the restaurant. UNSAT! They moved us and we were crammed amidst other guests one of us with our back to the beautiful Buddha. Service was poor, extremely slow and our waiter was not in the least bit engaging or friendly. Expensive and not worth all the hype!
Our waiter was very pushy and rushed to have us order. He also carded myself and my 58 year old mother, but not the two young women sitting next to us. He somewhat demanded we order everything up front and when we refused he took our menus and never offered to bring them back. Our drinks and water were not refilled. This is not my first time at Tao and I was stunned and disappointed with the service.
Amazing! Beautyfull space, great food. But expensive
Loved it here. Food was delicious. Would definitely recommend.
The restaurant is beautiful, nice atmosphere and is well decorated.
We are well assisted but the waiter brought two more entrées than was ordered without communicating with us so the bill was much more expensive.
The foods were good, but nothing so special.
Not worth the price.
Beautiful place and great food 💕
Best food, best service, best experience
Great food great service, a bit pricey but overall a great date night
My martini glass arrived dirty and the table was for 5 people but we sit in 6...
Excellent atmosphere, beautiful visually, food was high quality, hung out at the upstairs bar after dinner and had a good time meeting new people
Very cool environment. Took my family from out of town and they loved it.
Expect to get seated 15-30 minutes after your reservation.
Food was on point
The DJ and the music was the best part of the restaurant’s
Always have loved this location and the food and drinks are always on point.
Great NY vibe!

It is unfortunate to have to write such a bad review, but sadly I feel compelled to share our experience. We had dinner at Tao on Friday night, for a friends birthday celebration. Seconds after we sat, we were informed by our server that we needed to give our entire order at once, including dessert, because the kitchen was closing. So we did.. All of the food was served to us at once with no space left on the table to have a comfortable experience. We were told the bar was closing so we were given a second round of drinks before even finishing the first. Her dessert was also sent out while we still had full plates of hot food on the table. Overall, we were aggressively rushed and felt unable to enjoy the moment. After paying, the floor manager approached our table and asked us about our experience. We were honest about our disappointments and he reacted by telling us to make an earlier reservation next time. After the floor manager walked away we were then asked to leave by THREE separate security guards while we were trying to pay and put on our jackets. I booked this reservation for 11:30, which was an open time slot on Open Table. Why allow a reservation for that time, if you are going to make your guests feel unwelcome and unwanted? We all work in the restaurant industry, so we understand proper etiquette and customer service. This service ruined what was supposed to be a vibrant birthday celebration. I will not be recommending Tao to anyone after this embarrassing display of disrespect. The food was lovely, however the poor treatment from the FOH staff and security team overshadowed any hope of enjoying this experience.
Everything was great except for a couple of dishes they forgot to bring out. It was just as well as we were full but ...
The food is great. The only down side is the prices.
Classico locale asiatico alla moda, molto grande con musica talmente alta che non ci riusciva a parlare. Cibo pessimo
Good music (although a bit loud), great service, fresh sushi. Great place. Definitely will come back
This restaurant is the most beautiful all over the world.The food was magnifique ,you are like in a fairy tale.Congratulations to all!!!
I had nice evening with my friends and the food is decent but the energy and the ambiance was really nice!
Food was great, but a little pricey. Love the ambience but a little noisy.
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.
