Loved it! Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and excellent service!
They ignore may aniversary
A spectacular place Impeccable service, delicious food and drinks.
Even with reservation I had to wait almost 25 minutes to get the table... and they don’t give an space at the bar to wait
The atmosphere was amazing. Celebrated my daughter 17th birthday. Party of 5 and everyone was happy
Very nice spot for a 1st date .. I would go again. The Banana Pudding and Branzino was great though.
We waited FOREVER for the server to take our drink order, but to be fair once we ordered everything was very expeditious. I gave the server my card for our bill which was 239.00 and all seemed alright. Well I just looked at my bank statement and it appears the server swiped my card for another bill as well for 368.00. Mistakes happen and that is fine, however we were not notified of the mistake and therefore not able to make sure there were not repercussions with our bank account. It has now been four days and the false charge is still there. It set off a chain reaction of bounce fees and Tao has not responded to my voice mails. It's overpriced, but yummy with good cocktails, but this is careless and rude.
Very good food and decoration but so noisy !! Huge restaurant in a nice area.
All good, thank you.
Tao is the best Asian fusion food I've ever had. I like the ambiance a lot, but my husband doesn't. Even still, he admitted that the food was incredibly good. It can be loud, but that is part of the experience.
Love the food, music and overall vibe here. I always try to make time to eat here when in NYC. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing night out with friends! The Tuna Tartare was superb, the Mongolian beef as well! Come for an early dinner that is more casual but still nice, or come out late 9/10/11pm to see a more ritzy dressed crowd
Best dining experience. Food was so delicious. Server was attentive and kept checking on us. Ambiance was amazing. Def recommend!
Great service. Awesome ambiance and delicious food
I love it . Good food , excellent music and good service. Very professional:)
The food definitely wasnt what it used to be. The quality has definitely changed
Tao downtown never disappoints. Always amazing food and service.
Awesome restaurant- atmosphere, vibe and food. Great service and the food was top notch. Highly recommended.
Great ambiance, cool downtown chic scene. Overall fast service, food was great.
Absolutely loved it! I celebrated my birthday here with my boyfriend over the weekend. It WAS crowded and it WAS loud, but it made sense. The atmosphere is AMAZING! I would come here for the decor alone. Thankfully, however, the food was great too. Although the menu is fairly pricey, some of the dishes are sized to share. We ordered the triple pork fried rice to share and it was a good amount and a fair price. Our sides and appetizer were also delicious and my cocktail was yummy. Again, everything is expensive at first glance but you have to expect that in the city and when dining at a place like this. We ordered two desserts at the end, both delicious, and it truly was the cherry on top. Great dining experience, great service, great food. We ended up paying about $140 after tip and tax for the both of us. That's a pretty good deal if I do say so myself! Honestly, just give this place a try for a special occasion.
I always have an amazing time going to Tao. My server (the bearded guy) was AMAZING!!! I have nothing bad to say about this place.
I would recommend this restaurant for the food maybe, but the service is subpar. Waitress could not open a bottle of wine, nobody bothers to explain the dishes (the restaurant is dark, good luck reading that menu), music is ridiculously loud (and I love loud music). If you are going to charge these prices you need to train your people.
Great food as always
Keep in mind, we were there at an early hour and it was not very busy at all. But the service was quick and everything was delicious. Prices are typical for a nice manhattan restaurant and the quality was worth it. The decor was absolutely beautiful. It’s a little dim, so someone like me who has trouble seeing in the dark might have to pay extra attention to their steps, like I did. Beautiful place, great service, wonderful food. 13/10 would dine again.
Great experience with friends. Good for dates as well.
Our server was great! Very good food.. But the lady at the reception wasn’t very helpful and made us wait 30 minutes besides having a reception and wasn’t even apologetic about it.. That’s why had mixed feelings about the service
Excellent customer service and the food was phenomenal. Thanks
I knew my daughter would love it here. Totally worth it even if it is super expensive.
My husband’s birthday.
Like something out of a Bond film! Dramatic setting. Great food. Cool people. Epic.
Awesome atmosphere! The restaurant has a very unassuming exterior, but that changes drastically the moment you walk through the outside doors. The dining facility is very expansive with a high ceiling and extensive main floor. Also there is a discrete side bar and dining areas. Extremely impressive dining environment!
Tao does it like no other, Miami needs you, Zuma and Komodo are out and Novikov failed to deliver.
The food and ambiance was amazing but service was not in the same standards and I believe the music was too loud - I couldn't listen to the person I was with.
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and had such a great time! He had never been and he absolutely loved everything about this place.
We had the best service and delicious food!
Amazing time! Food was great.. energy and ambiance was great! Will def be back
This was the most amazing experience from start to finish. The entry into the restaurant was something I’ve never experienced before and will never forget.
The food and service was exceptional.
This was our first time coming here and we came on our anniversary which made it even special. The atmosphere ,design and lighting really set the mood. I had the best waiter i could ask for our first time coming Samuel J was amazing he knew what he was talking about and gave great suggestions. We will be coming back and bring some friends and family with us. Almost forgot the music was on point.
The atmosphere and service were excellent. Our server kept checking on us from time to time and my glass of water was constantly refilled without asking.
However, the quantity of food is extremely tiny. The oysters were the smallest I've ever seen in my life and cost $6 each. The jumbo shrimp yakitori was by no means jumbo, it was very small. Black pepper chicken tasted more like sweet n sour chicken. The 8 green rice tasted good though. Food's definitely overpriced but I was willing to pay as long as I got my money's worth but no, the food was pricey and small in quantity too. If they at least upped the quantity, it would've been MUCH better.
