Only glitch to the night was waiting 50 minutes even though we had a reservation and nobody seemed apologetic about it nor they offered to comp a round of drinks or anything. Everything else was awesome. Food and server were great.
Exceptional food in an elegant and beautiful setting. Loved it
Fun place for dinner
love this tao, I usually go to the other one uptown but this one is much better!!! super romantic setting and cozy seating!!
The only issue food was a little costly. Overall the food was great and the atmosphere was excellent
Service was inconsistent. The portion size was huge: double a normal size. There was so much waste. The waitress did not advise correctly on this. Also, there was a private function next door in the club, and their music was louder than in the main restaurant, which resulted in a clash of sound! Some of the guests were literally screaming at their table with over excitement! Not pleasant to be next to.
We were a group of five and we ordered a lot of small plates to share. Everything was delicious.
We loved Tao. The venue is incredible and the food and drinks were great. Our waiter recommended some dishes for us and it did not disappoint! Next time we’re back in New York we’ll definitely be looking to return.
Amazing food, great service and a brilliant place to be... just so so expensive!
This is my favorite Tao of all time! The atmosphere is energetic and sexy. Perfect for date night. We love the sea bass and lobster rice. They just melt in your mouth and I have never had anything like it. This time we ordered a spicy beef dish and I wasn’t crazy about the flavoring of the sauce. I was expecting more of a typical Szechuan flavor maybe. Anyway, great place with an amazing vibe!
The overall experience is a must and a can’t miss, been going there for several years and it’s as good as it’s ever been!
Worth all 5 stars! I love this place!!!
Overall the ambiance was nice and so was the food. The wait for seating is a bit long but it is a hot spot and this is expected. Our server was not friendly and seem to be bothered or probably overwhelmed with doing his job
Everything was great- the food,the ambiance. Only issue I had was we were being rushed the entire evening. We were told we could not just order an appetizer then our meal later. Everything had to be ordered at once. The waiter was back every couple of minutes asking us if we decided what we wanted. It would have been nice to give us 5 minutes or longer to decide rather than being rushed. After dessert was served the waiter asked if he could get us anything else. I said no and he took away my donughts and ice cream with out even asking. I still had half of it left. Because the food was so good I would go back.
Always a great choice!
We were seated promptly, and enjoyed a lovely evening. The food was excellent and served promptly as well. The staff was friendly and very responsive. We had a very nice experience. The ambiance was spectacular. The temperature was a bit warm in the restaurant for me, although I will admit the excellent bottle of sake we shared may have intensified this ;) I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great dinner out for two or with friends. A bit pricey however it is a great experience.
Delicious food especially considering the number of diners the kitchen serves. The dining area is a visual enjoyment
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we loved it! We had never been to Tao but we’re happy we chose it. As an appetizer we had the chicken lollipops and they were fantastic! I then had the chicken pad thai which was delicious and she had the rice & noodles pork belly dish. The pork was on the salty side but that might be a matter of preference. For dessert we had the coconut custard and it’s probably the prettiest plated dessert I’ve seen. Since it was my girlfriends birthday, the waitress brought an extra scoop of strawberry ice cream with an edible chocolate that had “happy birthday” written on it and 2 lighted candles (on the house). Customer service was good, very attentive. All in all it was a great experience and worth the tab.
Really good food - the best was the fortune cookie dessert which you shouldn't miss out on! Quick service. The Chilli Chicken was amazing and so were the Tuna Crispy Rice
Very lively restaurant with good atmosphere. You will need the light from your phone to read the menu however !!
Visiting NYC (Chelsea area) for Thanksgiving weekend. Tao was recommended to us and it delivered! Wonderful all around -- something for everyone. Waitress recommended ordering a variety and sharing among our 6 people. Smart move. Gave us a chance to try a lot. Highly recommend the Olive Fried Rice, the Coconut Shrimp, Pad Thai noodles, Thai pork, the giant fortune cookie and don't leave without trying the Cauliflower! Great vibe, great food, great service. 5 stars for sure!
Very big energetic restaurant. Delicious Asian inspired fare. The only downside is that the table for twos are sooooooooo close together that we felt like we were eating with others on our date.
I’be been to tao several times but this time was a big disappointment, appetizers came together with the entrees, bbq chicken was raw inside omg It felt disgusting. Noodles were cold too. Drinks and service was good. I was too upset that I didn’t even complain, I just paid the bill and left.
Food was good but was very packed!
As always, Tao was a fabulous experience. Having been to the midtown location and the Vegas location, I finally made it to the Meatpacking District location. Impressive! Great service, great food, and ambience second to none. You find yourself feeling very glamorous so it’s important to dress appropriately. You might be disappointed in yourself if you don’t think about what you’re wearing. Great place to order share plates (even though 3 orders of the lobster wontons in mushroom ginger broth is never enough!). I noticed a lot of people just eating the wontons and leaving the mushrooms and broth (my fave) and I’m glad they brought a big soup spoon so I could get every drop. A lot of the food is share plates and family style and the Mongolian beef did not disappoint. Also had edamame and yellowfin appetizers and the lobster crispy rice. But most notable about our 150 minute supper was the ambience. The projection of lights and video onto the focal 3-storey goddess was a magnetic focal point and watching people cascade down the staircase with terraced tables was excellent people watching. Would I go again? Every night if I could afford it! A+. Don’t listen to the naysayers, this is a tremendous dining experience.
Best part of my trip to NY! The food was good value - booked it for my birthday and I was worried as it seemed a little pricey but split between 2 people it was actually cheaper than some of the other places I had eaten. The music was incredible and would deffo visit again!
It was an amazing experience. We all really enjoyed the atmosphere and the vibes
Great atmosphere and food. Would recommend to anyone. A little pricey but not that bad if you go in a group.
Dynamite! Will go back again without a doubt!
Great service, Amazing Food and good drinks... the price is Average but be prepared to have an over 300 dollars meal for 2 people.
The food was good and while I understood that the price greatly reflects the general ambience, it was a very over priced as some of the food was just okay and not mind blowing. Our server was completely emotionless, my girlfriend and I in total racked up a 500$ bill and our waitress was seriously blank faced the entire time. I feel like for a restaurant of this caliber, the waitress needs to be much more friendly and enjoyable.
Posto incantevole, cibo ottimo. Abbiamo però aspetto mezz’ora prima di sederci. Unica pecca, un po’ troppo rumoroso. Conto alto ma ne vale la pena.
Cannot recommend this place enough. Just go! I had my 52nd birthday there and hadn’t had one since aged 11. Perfect.
Server was great, and the food was amazing.
I would definitely go back!! Great ambiance, good music, great vibe!
Sad, I could not get into the club despite eating there. Loved the tuna poke, & the fortune cookie dessert was delicious. Need to go back to try other dishes and drinks.
It’s definitely a must do, at least once.
The staff hovers over your shoulders and clears your plates as you are still eating. They poured rap water in our glasses full of sparkling water and would not replace the sparkling water. I will not done there again.
Had An Amazing Time!!!!!
Loved it!The food was amazing and so was the ambiance
