I had great time with my friends, thank you! I liked this place, food is amazing!
Great time @ Tao, is a family tradition to celebrate our birthdays here🙏
The waiter took about 30 mins to get our drinks by the time our food was over. It felt like he was trying to get us to buy a bottle of champagne that was more expensive than the one we ordered. Sushi was ordinary, dim sums were good but not wow. The ambiance is good post 9
Always amazing when you go to TAO -- and the Heavenly Sake is a MUST!!!
My second time eating here and I enjoyed my first visit better simply because a hostess/security person didn’t approach me in a disrespectful manner about taking photos.
Average food overpriced but service was good Nice atmosphere
Ambiance was incredible. Everyone was having a great time and the restaurant was packed. Food was outstanding and service was spot on; no delays with the food being served. Our waiter was very attentive even with all the tables full. He provided some very good recommendations, which we ordered. This was our first time here but not our last.
En decoración es el mejor de NYC, la comida rica, agradable, sin duda volvería.
I made a reservation for dinner here at Tao as I was accompanied by a NBA coach and some players from the team. Our waitress was aware as we were eating dinner we wanted to pay for another group that was in the restaurant as she was waitressing the same table. We asked her multiple times to make sure they did not pay the bill. After the group left and we paid for both our bill and the other groups bill we found out that they paid the waitress in cash. Long story short the waitress tried to pocket the cash and still took our money for the other groups bill. After spending over $800 we advised the manager of the issue and all she offered was a round of free drinks and the cash back that was never suppose to be taken in the first place. For us to have this experience with well known NBA players and a coach who comes to this restaurant ALL the time is very unacceptable. I was very disappointed with our experience
Great ambiance! Great service! We took our girls for the first time and they really enjoyed it. The DJ was awesome and provided a great touch to a Friday evening
I have been visiting Tao for many years, great atmosphere, very good service and very fast arrival of our order after ordering… will keep coming.
Had a wonderful experience. Haven’t been to a Tao restaurant in a while. Was visiting NY from Pennsylvania. I’ve worked in restaurants across the world and Tao is fantastic. The facility is beautiful and so are the plates. The service is incredible. Had the pork potstickers and they were spot on with a lovely heat to the sauce. The Hong Kong noodles were fantastic also. And the Peking Duck is second to none.
The chocolate lava cake presentation was beautiful with the chocolate box. The salted caramel gelato was delightful and added depth of flavor to counteract the sweetness associated with a lava cake.
The Triple Roast Pork Fried rice and Roast Pork Lo Mein were authentic NYC chinese. Reminded me of when I was a kid eating at my local Chinese restaurant. The Beef and Brocolli was an "elevated" version with a broccoli surrounding a sliced steak. It was great in its own way, but was very different than what you get in the white box. Had a bottle of Brooklyn cold sake which was crisp and refreshing. We ordered a Dessert Sampler which was good, but much too big for 2 people - probably more suited for 8. Interior was beautiful. Music was very low, which I wasn't expecting from a review I read. It is very suitable for kids and there were multiple families with kids dining around us. Will definitely go back eventhough the pricing is well above was you get at your local NYC chinese restaurant.
The receptionist were a bit dismissive. As we came into be checked in, the reception was very dismissive.
Amazing restaurant. Love the food and the decor is so cool.
Incredible unique setting, very good food. Service seems too hectic. Why QR codes for menu when there is no wifi connection?
Food was amazing! The wagyu yakitori was my favorite part of the meal it is a must have. For dessert the giant fortune cookie was actually giant and they even put a happy anniversary sign made of chocolate on it for my gf and I. Will definitely be back again!
Great Food! Great Atmosphere! Very beautiful decor and very romantic feel for the date. Took my wife here for her birthday and she loved everything!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a memorable place to go on a date night!
Its like eating in a modern NYC version of the Janet Jackson "If" video. Loved the ambiance. Loved the food. A bit pricey but so so good.
It’s was my son ‘s birthday and the restaurant was amazing with great food and great music. We had a great time and will return soon.
It was great.
Amazing!!! I cannot believe I’ve never been here! The restaurant is gorgeous. Service was amazing and THE FOOD!! Outstanding. We cannot wait to go back. You will not be disappointed.
Good for special events! Ambience is great. Only issue we had was with the reservation. We reserved a time a week in advance but still had to wait a whole hour before we could sit down.
Great experience! Brought my mom and brother out for their birthday. Food was incredible. Portions were moderate. Loved the eclectic decor
Food music and service perfect
Recommended for couples or group of friends in social eating
Server was excellent but one of the hostesses, the bus boy and food runners were horribly rude, and passive aggressive to our faces. They refused to answer the most basic question when trying to make light hearted conversations. This restaurant clearly has an agenda of turn-over rates to increase their sales, and customer experience and basic principles of respect is not on their agenda nor their priority.
One of the best place in town, I highly recommend this if you haven't been. Energetic, delicious and beautiful it's an amazing place
I had a great experience
Music was blasting so loud we had to yell to hear one another at a tiny two person table. Food was great as always though.
Waited for one hour to be seated. Overcrowd place. Bad service I won’t go back
Amazing time! Will definitely go back! Great experience.
Amazing restaurant-interior design is unique and food is top notch.
Fabulous ambiance and our meal was absolutely delicious!!! Our waitress was great!
My gf and I both work at the Mohegan Sun location and we were really excited to check out Tao Downtown and we're not disappointed. Our Server, Nate, wad very kind and accommodating. The food was delicious as always and I loved that the NYC location had different food options exclusive the the venue. Kevin Sweeney, the manager, also checked in on us and made sure we were treated like king and queen (which we were). Also a special shout out to Ben Zirolli for hooking us up with the res!! We will be back!
I got an allergic reaction due to the chicken lollipops sprinkled with peanuts, i then asked for chicken fried rice one of them no eggs because my sister is highly allergic then they all came with no eggs, thats not what I requested. On top of it all it was my birthday, did they care? Nopee! They still made me pay for some food that I couldn’t even eat. Worst birthday ever. Never going there again
Awful server. No water refills, no replaced utensils, barely any check ups. He’s too busy. Didn’t clear the table properly. Waits forever. Wouldn’t go back there again. There’s plenty of beautiful restaurants in NY with super great service for the money!
Amazing time with Alyssa, she looked so good the food tasted better. Did I mention how good she look. If I didn’t let me mention it again she looked good. And she got some new lashes 🔥🔥🔥🔥. I give the restaurant 9.5/10 the date 9/10 because she wasn’t taking me serious and she didn’t get up and dance. Definitely will go again with her.
Excellent experience! Ambiance, food and service were all the top! Treated like a celebrity even though we’re NOT. Pricey but worth it!
