AmaZing food and excellent service!
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!
The food was mediocre and very very pricey.
The quality of the sushi itself was pretty good but the portions were tiny and very expensive. The dessert (crème brûlée) was inedible. A small flask of sake was $64.
Everything was amazing from start to finish. Couldn’t be more happier!
Love the ambiance and food ! 10/10 would recommend.
Food not worth the price
I expected so much more from a place like this. The only thing I liked was the decoration. Never again.
Wow the food was out of this damn world it was so good
Overall not happy with the experience. The food looked like pre coocked given that it arrived very quickly.
3 of us went there for an early dinner on Sunday 11/3/19 - we shared about 7 appetizers and then an entree of Peking Duck plus drinks- the waitress was fantastic, the food was absolutely delicious, drinks were good and we split 2 desserts- the dessert special was wonderful. I recommend this place!
The atmosphere at Tao is always amazing. The food and drinks were delicious and we didn’t have to wait long for them as well. Tao is perfect for a date or a night out with friends!
Always a pleasure to have dinner here very professional staff service is great food is excellent ambience is amazing one of n mi y favorite restaurants in New York
The restaurant was absolutely incredible. The service was great - every staff member was willing to help and assist (I like that there was no specific waitress attending to us, it was rather nice). The food was delicious and I love that they were shareable. While it is indeed pricy, you are paying for the unique ambiance. I sat in one of the two-seaters with my boyfriend; what a great experience. Very comfortable, and the place isn't that loud. There's so much space, and I'm a sucker for high ceilings. They only criticism is their $20 cocktails. Cocktails shouldn't be the same price as one of the shareable food items; they're not THAT good. Otherwise, I have no complaints! Perfect for a date.
I have been to this place many times and it never fails the foods are fantastic and the staff are great!
FANTASTIC! My daughters’ 15th Bday and she and her 5 friends had an time. Food was amazing. Service was spot on. Atmosphere was fun and the music was wonderful. Can’t wait to come back
We visited TAO during our week in NY. Great restaurant with cosy atmosphere. We had a nice dinner with different courses, everything was tasting more than fine. Negative is that we had a starter, main course and dessert and the food came so quickly becuase the want to have a speed meal to be able to sell the table again. That doesent feel ok, when you have bill on +500 dollars for 3 persons.
Beautiful place with overpriced marginal food. You go there for the experience not the food.
Fabulous experience, food amazing. Decor is absolutely gorgeous
Tao was a pleasure to visit. The ambiance is BEAUTIFUL! As soon as you walk in the experience begins. Beautiful lighting and sculptures line the hallways. Upon entry the dining area is breath taking. Our food was phenomenal. We had a 5pm reservation and the place wasn't crowded at all. I will definitely be visiting Tao Downtown again in the near future.
Amazing food and service! Order the Black Cod, it is truly not to be missed.
Amazing as per usual! Probably my 12th time there and enjoyed every minute! :)
Food and service was great! However it took over 20+ minutes to get seated and the seating wasn't that great (even though I made a reservation 2 weeks prior and I have OpenTable VIP status). Overall, I had a good time and would probably go again in the future.
It was just ok... I expected better based off what I had seen.... the food was too salty ... they asked what I was celebrating yet didn’t acknowledge it while there. The price wasn’t worth the experience.
Food was so amazing as usual, was just thrown off a bit by the service.
Late night after event dining in a fun atmosphere with surprisingly good food. Our second visit and it didn’t disappoint.
We always order the same as we like it so much
Fantastic place. Food is excellent and the experience of just being there makes the evening. Service is great and I would highly recommend it.
Se just had to wait 15 min yo our table to be ready, other than that all perfect
Fabulous food and great vibe. Our waiter was extremely friendly and attentive.
They removed the seafood black rice. Very disappointing. Overall good restaurant.
Good food, nice resturant but service should be better
My boyfriend got a food poising from your restaurant.
This was suggested by a friend and it didn’t disappoint. The Mongolian beef and Shang-Hi rice were to die for. The decor is just stunning but the music was a tad too loud. I know this will be one of my new favorites and I can’t wait to eat here again .
its a nice place in the hear of Chelsea. I loved the ambience a lot and the food as well. Highly recommend and will also check it out in Vegas.
The restaurant is very impressive. Very beautiful. Appetizers are excellent, and the wait staff was very pleasant and informed as to food choices. The Branzino was just delicious.. My wife says the sweet & sour pork was great. My cousin from NOLA has recommended this exact restaurant. She has dined there several times. Sarah and her trainee were very fine staff, friendly and a Red Sox fan..
When back in NYC we will be sure to go here again.!
