Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 60,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge 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.

Great atmosphere, friendly service, food was tasty and they have a nice selection of drinks including cold Sake. They remembered and arranged a very nice birthday surprise dessert. Will come again to check out the disco upstairs. The Buddha is pretty big and the decor is captivating.

Excellent restaurant. Excellent food. Excellent server service. The worst host process I have ever seen. Showed up early for reservation. Had to wait 15 minutes to check in. Was seated 45 minutes after check in at a table in the bar area that had been opened the ENTIRE time (we were sitting in a couch right next to it) we sat in the bar area. Asked to be re-seated in the main area.

Server was sympathetic to our experience and offered a drink to make up for the wait. Her service was outstanding as was the food.

Maybe the vibe of the wait is what the business desires. I'm flexible that it can be a bit (15 minutes?) to be seated with a reservation. However, if I am 50 minutes late coming to a reservation, do you think they would still honor it?

Nice dinner. Be aware of the peeking duck for 2 - the price listed in the menu is per person so it’s $79 for this dish. Menu is confusing and misleading!!

The food was amazing,our server looked like a model, the only thing I would say is as far as the restaurant portion, the music didn't fit the cozy,sophicated ambiance, I would have liked a more mellowed out playlist while eating.

We just arrived in Las Vegas and looked to unwind after traveling in a plane for several hours. Tao was conveniently located in the Venetian, which is a massive complex of restaurants and shops as well as the three hotel buildings and casino. Thankfully we had reservations as this appeared to be a popular destination for dining--especially on a Friday night, since there is a nightclub upstairs and most of the diners seemed to migrate to the club after their meal; you don't want to compete with the MANY bachelorette/bachelor parties that seemed to dominate the Vegas scenes on the weekend! And by dining in the restaurant you have an easier access to the club--a big plus.
Tao is a bigger facility than I was used to with an extended waiting area with large couches and the bar; the dining area was further back with a tall ceiling adorned with Asian tapestry and the lighting was quite subtle. Our server Lars took great care of us as he would swing by our table and keep us informed about our meals. There was quite a bit of foot traffic near our table so we either sat by the rest rooms or nightclub entrance.
Even though we were hungry the food was amazing in flavors and aromas. Among our plates were vegetable fried rice, sauteed cauliflower and a large Tao salad. Everything was cooked to perfection and served at the right temperature.
All in all, an amazing way to start our Vegas weekend!

Service and staff were excellent in helping us through the menu. Pot stickers, Chinese sausage fried rice, miso glazed sea bass and the fortune cookie dessert were all delicious! We will definitely return on our future trips to Vegas. You also get inclusive and priority entrance to the nightclub if you order an entree so that was definitely worth the perk also!

Food was mediocre for the price. We could’ve saved $100 by eating at Panda Express and it probably would’ve been hot. There for our anniversary, no mention of it even with the request made, food was served quickly and barely warm, which means it was pre-made not fresh. Very overpriced for the quality.

Similar to P.F. Chang’s, but larger and more asthetically pleasing. The food is good. Too crowded and loud for a date, but great for groups.

Everything we ordered was fantastic. The yellowtail is unbelievable and the crispy rice dish was perfect both times I’ve eaten here. Loud the second night, but we sat at the sushi bar and had no issues. Giant fortune cookie to celebrate a birthday... the fortunes alone are enough reason to get it. Added bonus is that it’s delicious.

I have found Tao surprising. On one hand it is a well known club, however few people know that the kitchen, run by executive chef Brian Hlee performs its tasks with culinary mastery hidden within this sion of the local club scene. A don’t miss when in Vegas.

We are foodies and visited from London and heard great things about Tao, but we weren’t impressed with the mains or the sushi. The spicy tuna wasn’t spicy - our waiter offered to get us a spicy mayo which was nice of him. But it just didn’t meet our expectation and we love and thought about going to Hakkasan but thought let’s try something different, and was sadly disappointed.

We loved the decor and the food equally. The divers sea scallops in red curry were beautifully seared. We ordered the seared tuna appetizer (portion of proceeds went to Autism Speaks) and the tuna was unbelievably fresh and tender. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We loved our experience overall at Tao. Great service, food and ambiance! The Birthday fortune cookie was amazing!!
Only thing that turned me off was the service attendant in the washroom and all her clutter scattered across the bathroom countertop. For such a classy restaurant, the bathroom clutter made it feel a bit cheap.

We made reservations and when we arrived we learned that they had given our table away. We had to wait about 10 minutes for another table to become available. My husband and I didn’t complain and while ordering our food we learned the manager had offered us free drinks. At least he showed an effort to make things right. The food was great and we had an excellent server who we tipped well. I would recommend the restaurant.

The night club was only okay. Small dance area because they’re more worried about making money on bottles. The music was decent. Maybe it’s better when famous artists preform.

Reservered the table for 930 got seated about 10. Waiter rushing us to order. After the 4th visit from the waiter while we were still deciding he seemed irritated. Then another waiter or worker came over and was loud and obnoxious. I told him we were not ready yet. Then when we were finally ready waiters were not to be found. We finally got an order in after 1040. I have frequent visits to Las Vegas and have been here before. I will not return to this restaurant because of this experience.
