Tasty food. Very friendly service.
Amazing! Food/Service amazing
Lovely dining experience and well attentive to food was absolutely amazing and drinks were made to perfection flavorful unique and alcohol I can’t wait to go back again.
I almost walked out! The hostess was sarcastic and had a stank attitude. She was super dismissive and made me feel like she wanted out of her presence.. very rude! I let it go because my friend had never been there and didn’t speak the language I wanted to show her one of my favorite spots in NYC.
What made our experience amazing was the waitress and the buss boys. Super attentive, kind and welcoming. The food was delicious as always.
Our experience here was impeccable. The wait was a while, but the service made up for the wait. Will definitely be back!
I had a wonderful time! The food was delicious. The service was great! I had a wonderful time celebrating my Anniversary thank you Tao. And most if all thank you John the waiter 😊
Everything was wonderful! I can’t wait to go back!
We had a great time with all that’s going on
With COVID still lingering, I expected my dining experience to be a tad bit different. I wish i could remember the hostess’s name. Short blonde with lots of energy. Thank you for the warm welcome and laughs. The food was great as usual. Service could’ve been better. The waiter checked on us because we waived him down. It didn’t feel like the upbeat Tao I’m used to but it did the job.
Excellent experience food was great
The food was amazing as usual and the customer service is excellent too - always making us feel special! One of my fave restaurants!
Excellent Customer Care . Very good menu selections. The dishes were prepared deliciously.
I’ve been to Tao Downtown several times, so didn’t think twice about going to this location when my friend mentioned it. Two completely different establishments. The food is good here(Downtown is better) and the service was great, but the absolute lack of atmosphere is what really caught me off guard. This felt like any tourist restaurant over in Times Square. Downtown has such an amazing vibe with music to match the vibe. The music literally sounded like they had on a top hits radio station.
Had a great time with my family, food was delicious
How does TAO continue to get better?!? We had the chef’s special appetizer with caviar and truffles and it was uh-mazing! Always one of my favorite places.
The food and service was amazing! I ordered the pepper steak, spicy shrimp, fried rice and broccoli. Also enjoyed a henny sidecar. Wish I order dessert but I’ll be back soon!
The service was incredibly slow, the music was terrible, the appetizers took an hour to come, and they forgot the birthdays I told the hostess about.
Not exactly the best example of sidewalk dining. Food and service was good. Some effort at improving the surrounding would have been nice.
Amazing service by our server. Delicious food and nice chill ambience.
TAO never disappoints. Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with Wok Vegetables is to die for and the Molten Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Gelato and Cherry Sauce...it's a must.
Great for special ocaasions or evey Fri night. Simply can't go wrong with TAO.
Food was awesome, the ambiance well eating outside
My Waiter Was Very Nice Don’t Remember His Name But He Had Black Earrings. He Came To See If We Was Alright. He Also Gave Me Extra Chop Sticks.
Great food and service!! Considering the outside dining mandate in effect in NYC, the ambiance looks great inside, but we weren't able to experience it. Overall is was a great experience and I will dine there again.
Service was slow although we arrived at 9pm.
Food was good but nothing to write home about.
Tao is a great place but definitely not worth going to during out door dining.
Way to cold outside to be sitting and waiting for food while the garbage truck passes by. I’ll go again when we can dine indoors. Food is always good.
Anniversary date with my boyfriend
The staff were amazing! The food was just spectacular and it was so nice to be out to eat and feel normal again!
Love the food at TAO! Consistently good, the best Pad Thai in the city.
It really wasn’t Tao’s fault. Thanks to the mayor we are still stuck outside.
My salmon was extremely overcooked to the point where I could barely eat it
This was my first time dining at Tao. I arrived about 7 mins late for my reservation but was still seated immediately. The waiter was very friendly and checked in on us enough, but was not overbearing. I enjoyed the music selection was very happy with the wait time for our food and the food was delicious! I had a great experience!
Amazing food and great service. A bit bummed that we couldn’t dine inside because the place is so beautiful but not in our control. Would highly recommend.
Food and service were fantastic
Food has taken a big downturn compared to when I was last there five years ago. Both savory dishes had far too much sugar
It was a very good experience,staff was very professional food was delicious.
First time eating out since March and Tao took all safety and sanity precautions to make dining a safe and enjoyable experience. Staff was exceptional!
One of our faves! Best cocktails in town!
Service was good, food was good, ambiance was fair, too noisy street
Outstanding food, atmosphere, and staff already looking forward to the next time.
I’ve dined at Tao many times & thoroughly enjoyed it however, it is not the same when sitting outside, on the side walk. At no fault of their own it’s understandable but, I will not be returning as it’s not worth it. The food was mediocre, service was alright and drinks are wayyyyyy too expensive.
