About Tao Restaurant and Nightclub

Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi.
Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar.

Tao Restaurant and Nightclub Ratings and Reviews
Tao is an upscale restaurant serving a mix of sushi and asian fusion. Typhoon Lobster was my favorite dish, sushi was outstanding, Pad Thai was so-so. Waitress was not very patient, could not quite explain all of the dish details.
Make a reservation before coming - this place is super busy.
We have been to Tao on numerous occasions and I won’t return unless others really want to. Consistently bad seating!!! Which one gets accustomed to but we had asked for special seating and good location. We were next to kitchen. 4 large adults at the same table 2 petite women were seated at next to us. Plus the ambiance is so vegas false and not friendly. Gets old.
Meat was cold sushi not as good as usual. Overall disappointing night.
However very nice waiter.
We had a terrible experience and ended up leaving without ordering. We had made the reservation almost a month in advance and we're very excited about coming to the restaurant - we were seated (the hostess was very nice) and the server answered some questions and then gave us a "couple of minutes" to consider our order. The restaurant was not busy at all, but, after consideration, for about 5 minutes I was "on guard" to catch someone's attention in order to ask one final question and make the order and no one passed close or had their eyes on us for more than a millisecond so that I could signal them, and then I spent almost another 5 minutes with my hand *held up* so that someone would finally see me, and I saw about 8 restaurant employees seeing me with my hand held up but no one came (and once our waiter came to the floor, he went to another table - which is legitimate, but someone else should see what I am so desperately trying to get attention for and not leave it to him if he is busy and they are just standing there- it was just like they couldn't care less if it wasn't their table). You do not come to such a fancy place, pay that much money to be treated like you are invisible! It was infuriating...! I feel stupid waiting for it and being so excited about it... It wasn't even busy.
Food was good and the atmosphere was fascinating. Just for the atmosphere I would go there. The Sea Bass I would give 5 stars, but the noodles I would give only 3. Sushi was above average at 4 stars. Our server had an attitude like he didn't want to be there. It may have been a bad night for him.
We were very disappointed with this place. While the food was good, the service was not. We saw our waiter when he took our initial order for cocktails and a few minutes later when he delivered those drinks and took our order. He never stopped back by after that, even when we asked another server to please send him over. Eventually, we sought out the manager to get our check so we could leave. The manager did comp a portion of the meal and I certainly appreciate that. However, I have eaten at many great places in Las Vegas and never had service this bad.
Excellent customer service. They responded to my online request by seating us in front of Buddha and also provided me with a surprise birthday dessert and candle. The cocktails and appetizers were delicious. While my partner adored his meat dish, on my side I felt the vegetarian selection could have been larger. We went on a Tuesday night so it was quite quiet and thus lacking a little buzz, but again, the staff were great and the décor is beautiful.
Odd check in for our reservation, the girl at the front was unapproachable . We get sat at our table, the waitress is nice and patient while explaining the menu . After taking our order, she accidentally knocked the soy sauce off the table which proceeded to splatter all over my boyfriend white shoes. She was apologetic and got some wet rags to wipe them off. We remarked we would take them to the shoe shine as they were stained . At this point, front of the house manager was there , no offer of any comps . Nothing, just awkward silence. Word of advice - next time offer a drink or dessert when any service member spills on guests, just a thought. As for the food - tempura was greasy with the dipping sauce being flavorless. Fried rice with duck was excellent. Seared tuna was over cooked and dry . Overall , disappointing. I wouldn't come back.
The restaurant looks absolutely stunning - sit underneath a towering Buddha statue with koi swimming around its feet. Unfortunately the food is ridiculously overpriced for how awful it is - about $40 an entree that’s significantly under Panda Express quality. (I actually like Panda, but would expect to pay only about $10 for a meal there). Everything is coated with way too much sugar and was lukewarm. Go for the view and over the top experience if you’re into it, but it’s definitely the worst food I’ve ever had in Vegas, by far.
What an interesting combination of dining and DJ. Tao most certainly is a destinctive taste for overall experience.
Food is delicious
Our server was very attentive without being overbearing
Don’t expect to hear your dining companion
Expect it to be extremely crowded
They have a bathroom attendant who thinks you don’t know how to pump your own soap
It’s crawling with people who clearly lack confidence in their daily lives.
My boyfriend and I decided to give the night club a chance since after dining since the cover charge is waived. We haven’t had a laugh that good in awhile. Between the overly aggressive bouncers and the girls in the bathtubs it isn’t worth it except to giggle over later. We’re from San Diego and we agreed we would rather go out there anytime over this.
