The food was pretty average and over priced. Door staff were not the friendliest.
The place is very beautiful! The food is normal.
Fantastic place to eat, food and service was good but not exceptional.
My group of 9 had a great experience. The staff was super friendly and attentive to our needs. Huge shout out to the manager, Chris, who has exceptional customer service. He made our group feel welcomed.
Food was very good, waiter was not attentive as I had expected. We had to waive multiple times to get his attention for water or to order something and the restaurant was not very busy.
food was amazing, bartenders attended to us quickly will def come back
Great food, service and ambiance.
Very long waiting time for a table booked in advance.
Love the place and environment!!!
Tao is always a delight. Consistently great food, always amazing staff, and never ever an issue.
Was my birthday and I couldn’t have had a better time. The service was the best and we enjoyed the entire night !!!!
Bad service, ok food, not worth the hype... cool atmosphere but other than that I would never go back
I loved it!
Kids birthday 13. I like TAO because it’s themed. Amazing that a place I drank in during my 20s is still a go-to for occasions. It’s perfect for family birthday dinners. A little pricey for Thai, but it makes up for it in ambiance and definitely a place for a teen palate- plenty of fried rice and noodles as well as instagram worthy desserts and giant Buddha.
Perfect ambience in both the dining room and the lounge. Great mood lighting. Large portions and good food. Very nice.
Really nice ambiance, good food, friendly staff. Lychee martini a must
It was a great dinner! Celebrated my boyfriend's birthday with his three daughters. It was fun and perfectly Instagram-worthy for his teenagers. The food was delicious and our servers were friendly and even offered some simple food modifications for the kids. Definitely recommend! We went at 7:30 on a Friday evening.
Perfect spot to catch up with friends. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in making our selections. Food was tasty, cocktails were great and we had a lovely evening.
Always amazing!! Food is the best and well as their stuff!
Incredible Peking Duck and the best libations on the planet. Dinner was spectacular and obviously this place made a comeback after losing it for a while.
Amazing decor, service and the food was exquisite. We will be back!
Awesome food & atmosphere
Tall ceilings, giant Buddha, great music and fabulous food. Everything we tried of the menu was delicious. The “Tao-tini” Martini went down way to easy and the sushi was so fresh. No need to ask for additional dipping sauces here! Will definitely come back when I visit New York again. The music was bumping and the seating areas are tight so I wouldn’t bring your grandma lol
I can’t stop dining here as one of my top choices for a group. We always enjoy the food so much. Rock shrimp lettuce cups, crispy rice tuna tartare, honey chicken,drinks, specials, and the desserts. Great for groups. If you have young kids, try super early dinner
Tables are super close together and it’s really loud
Bland pad tai entree, over charged with multiple mistakes on receipt, multiple mistakes via waiter bringing out two desserts instead of one, 3 drinks instead of two.
Tao is one of those loud young fun places that I guess never really gets old. Us NYers make fun of this place bec there are literally a billion other amazing NYC places to spend your evening and money, but if you have a large group and don’t want to worry about “ambiance” this is an easy choice. Be aware it’s mostly tourists, or bridge and tunnel folks, or young groups celebrating <21 bdays... but the food is yummy, drinks ok. Service great, prices reasonable, location fine. Music blasting so that’s fun too. Overall a fun place for a group.
It's been years since I'd been to TAO so naturally the menu changes however it seemed smaller/limited and a lot more expensive. The service was great and the food was too. The special was particularly good and glad we took the servers recommendation.
4excellent place for dinner, food is hot and tasty, service is timely and pleasant
Absolutely wonderful experience! Every drop of food is delicious from beginning to end! Manager stopped and said hello. Servers were timely, knowledgeable and kind. Atmosphere is dreamy!
Great food !! Great way to bring a birthday in . Good drinks
Excellent food to enjoy any time.
As usual everything was perfect...food, service & ambience.
Amazing food! Pad Thai is good and the cocktails Perfect!
Can not fault the food but everything else just lacked. We found our waitress rude, we went to order a bottle of wine and demanded to see our ID rather than politely asking, everything felt very rushed, within 2 minutes she was asking if we knew what we wanted and checking the time - despite booking this table for 2 hours.
Also a friends birthday and we travelled to New York as a surprise, this was added in the notes and whilst other restaurants have given a note on the table or chocolate - nothing major. Tao didn't make any effort which was very disappointing.
The food however was great but arguably not enough too bring us back,
We had excellent food and service
As always, splendid atmosphere, drinks reception and starters. Almost to full after the starters, but very good.
First and foremost the Service is impeccable, attentive and caring, by multiple servers, and a wonderful waitress, the food is tasty, hot and wonderfully presented. 6 stars for atmosphere as it carries onto the bathroom and the bathroom attendant.
I love this restaurant because the whole experience, not just the food.
Excellent experience and food. Excellent service and friendly staff.
