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
I had a reservation for 8:30pm on a Saturday. I arrived 30 minutes early & checked in. We were seated at 8:45pm. While waiting, we went to the bar where we found seats. The cocktail waitress walked by us several times and didn't stop until we literally grabbed her arm. She clearly had better things to do. The dinner waiter was a bit better, but once served, we waited forever to have the table cleared. Very loud & hard to hear one another. Great food, however.
The seniors enjoyed dinner and little dancing after. The ambiance is great for dinner to celebrate special occasion. Excellent service and beautiful food presentation. One of our dish was salty but they were able to adjust and accommodate. Definitely we are coming back to try the other food offering.
The meal was fine. Ambiance, as always, was great. Service was top notch. The spicy tuna appetizer with the crunchy rice was wonderful! The cold tuna with the warm rice was such a nice play on temperatures. Loved that one! Our Sea Bass was a bit over cooked (but the flavors accompanying it were fabulous!) and the Drunken Lobster Pad Thai needs some fine tuning. The Pad Thai could have been more flavorful, there was way too many bean sprouts, and the huge handful of cilantro stems was hard to deal with.
We were seated in the back corner without a view of the big Buddha or the many goddess statues that grace the red velvet lined booths in the front of the table. Bummer since we reserved weeks ahead and called to confirm our reservation. Our very attentive waitress Emily happily pointed out the vegan options on the menu. Not many so I'd recommend other places for veggies but I had heard of Tao for a decade and wanted to check it out. I'd go to Tao for drinks and eat at Sushi Samba next time we are in town.
Highly overrated. The noise level severely limits table conversation. This was the only time I ever had to use the light from my phone to read the menu. The food was alright, but nothing to get excited about. Service was standard with a few minor mix-ups. If you want to dine on The Venetian Hotel property choose elsewhere like Buddy V's etc. or wander off property and go to Morton's or Giada's...
830pm reservation, did not get table until 945pm, despite arriving at 825Pm. Seemed like Modus operandi. Staff polite, but no excuses. Obviously intentionally overbooked. Open Table should not accept such blatant violations of their booking system. Food was okay and staff professional, but very disappointed by the extraordinarily long wait - have never experienced anything like this with Open Table.
If I could give Tao ZERO stars I would! Clearly they put packing people in over the common courtesy of respecting a reservation. We were seated well over an hour after our reservation time and when I complained to the manager, Rizwan, he couldn't ever muster an apology saying only, "I'm sorry you feel that way". We have gone to Tao for years in both Vegas and NYC, but we'll never be back.
My friends and I celebrated my 50th birthday and it was amazing! The food was AWESOME and the dancing after dinner was great too; however, the music should be catered to everyone. More reggae should be incorporated. I would definitely go back to Tao for dinner, without a doubt!!
I understand tuna is not in peak season and I didn’t expect top quality this time of year but the tuna I got was old and was not seared anytime around the time I ordered. The few other things we ordered and shared had problems but not to the degree of the tuna. This went from my favorite restaurant to my least favorite in one trip. So disappointed we paid, left, and ate at another place.
