About Tao Restaurant and Nightclub
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.

Tao Restaurant and Nightclub Ratings and Reviews
Dinner was served very quickly and was fantastic. We had a balcony-side table so the view of the giant Buddah and koi pond was excellent. Since it was my birthday, they made my dessert extra special which was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend Tao for any special occasion or for a romantic dinner. There is also entrance into the nightclub if you dine there which is great to take advantage of since the line forms early for the club.
Amazing, had the Thai Chicken, simply amazing!!! A little pricey, but worth it!!!! Service was top notch. Please make sure you have reservations before coming, or you have no chance of getting in. Please also have them stamp your wrist while there to get into TAO nightclub and bypass the line and cover. Perfect restaurant after seeing Cirque Du Soliel.
I came back for the atmosphere and the kobe beef ribeye which I have had before. Also tried the miso chilean sea bass - it was delicious! At less than half the price of the steak it is a much better value. Sharing a few dishes with your dining companions is definitely the way to go.
The entrance to TAO is a whole lot more serene than the inside! Definitely not a place for a romantic, leisurely dinner. The menu had a lot of variety, and the food was good, just not "memorable". While in general, TAO is not a bad place to dine, there are other Asian restaurants in Vegas that I would recommend over this one.
The ambiance of this location is outstanding. Very special, excellent food, the chefs have an excellent feeling for mixting different flavors. The waiter was friendly and open for recommandations.
Just after having enjoyed the dessert, the bill was presented without asking for it. We felt like sacked. The ordered Single Malt Whiskey (Oban) was simply called Scotch. And it wasn't an Oban at all.
The food was wonderful. But our server was very slow coming out to the table. Took him 15 minutes to great us. Than he disappeared for 10 minutes to find us water. The food was wonderful!! Can't say that enough. The menu says "Our servers are here to guide you,
so please call upon them for the smallest of favors. TAO has no set rules"
But every time I asked for something slightly different I was told you can't do that. So they do have set rules.
You can make a wonderful meal from trying a number of the small plates.
Tao restaurant served tasty food with great service.The restaurant is on the 1st & 2nd floor and the nightclub is on the 3rd floor and all the floors are open to each other so we could hear the pounding loud music as if we were in the nightclub while dining.Sure, you get a line pass and free admission to the nightclub if you dine in the restaurant, but you are still subject to a small wait in line to get your id checked and then you get to walk up the stairs to the third floor to the nightclub.Once upstairs you will be greeted by scantily clad women lounging together on display on a couch.The dance floor is packed wall to wall with people.The bouncer askss you to move to let people out of the middle of the dance floor.Good eats - bad club.
When I made a reservation, I made a note that it was my husband's 30th birthday. After dinner, they served him a dessert that said Happy 30th Birthday. I was so happy because it was a complete surprise as I had forgotten about my note. Great way to make a memorable impression.
I knew coming to Tao I would definitely enjoy the ambiance, but wasn't sure about the food based on other reviews. Let me set the record straight....the food is FANTASTIC. Sure you are paying for vibe and the prices are significant, but this is Las Vegas and a hotspot in Vegas. We started with the Corn soup, which was to die for. It is a spicy take on the classic egg drop soup. Then we shared the Lobster wontons, a Tao specialty. I could have eaten the sauce on the wontons alone it was so delicious. Then as our entree, my mother and I split the sea bass and buddha's feast. The buddha's feast was good, but no remarkable. The sea bass on the other hand is one of the most delicious pieces of fish I have ever had. Definitely check out Tao!
The bar scene here is great, and if you dine here you can go to the nightclub upstairs without paying a cover or waiting in line. The food is small plates and the quality was a range from just "ok" to fantastic (miso crusted sea bass). The service was poor and the noise level is very high. It was a great place to "people watch" and the cocktails were outstanding, but on a pure food/price basis, not a great value.
Fantastic experience. I went with the swordfish and it was done perfectly. Recommend the spring rolls and toro fatty tuna for appetizers. The toro was very fresh and therefore very good and well worth the price. Our waiter was attentive and had a great attitude. Great experience all around.
My wife and I had a great birthday dinner at Tao recently. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Las Vegas. The food was outstanding and our waiter was incredible---helping us make the right selections and very friendly. We will definitely recommend Tao to all our friends.
The food was innovative & interesting. As a bit of a foodie, I enjoy things that are unusual. The presentation of the food was unparalleled at Tao and it tasted great too. My wife & I had a lot of fun and will definitely be back. It was probably the coolest looking restaurant we've ever seen! Our server was great & helpful.
The food wasn't very good and took forever to come out. I did, however, love the giant fortune cookie dessert. We had bottled service at @ Tao nightclub after dinner so we were escorted through out and into the club after dinner. I wasn't a fan of the music that night nor did I care for the crowds that club attracts. I think the most entertainment for me that night was watching the lingerie tub girls rub each other down. I feel there are restaurants.clubs 100x's better than tao so don't waste your time and money here!
We were surprised not only at the quality of the Chinese food but also the portion size and reasonable prices for a higher end Las Vegas restaurant located in The Venetian. Our server was very attentive. Beware of the very high priced drinks including $14 martinis that are on the small side. Servers do push certain dishes so stand your ground if you don't want to eat the kobi beef sushi. Not a place for a quiet, intimate meal as it is noisy and tables are very close together. But a lot of fun.
Food was excellent but restaurant was so loud that it was difficult to hold a conversation. Decor is an attempt to be hip Asian but comes off as contrived. Host staff was fairly rude, like it was an honor for you to be there. So much good dining in Vegas there is no need to go to Tao just for the food.
The ambiance and setting of the bar was beautiful, however we felt that for the food we were getting, it was a bit overpriced. The food that we got was good, just didn't seem worthy of such a high price tag. If you are looking for a high-end restaurant to visit during your trip to Vegas, I would recommend this. But if you are on a budget, probably best to find a less-expensive option
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Tao on our recent getaway to Vegas. This is an amazing restaurant in all respects (ambience, food and service)! It does get quite noisy though so don't expect a quiet dinner. Great for starting a night out on the town as the energy fills the air! Definitely recommended!
