Disappointing experience- would not return. Reservation at 8:15- not seated until 8:45. Ordered branzino with steamed bok choy- sent dish back as fish arrived with unappetizing, terribly thin, skin on filets, accompanied by a pile of salad greens- waiter said steamed bok choy was underneath greens? Requested exchange of entree for sea bass with wok vegetables. Waiter delivered branzino with wok vegetables. Sent back. Our waiter was very accommodating - it was so loud he may not have heard me clearly. Sea bass and vegetables arrived when my husband and daughter had finished their meals. Sea bass was excellent- wok vegetables were swimming in a salty, goopy sauce- terrible. It was our daughter’s birthday. I noted this on our reservation. It was never acknowledged and our dinner experience was so poor and the noise level so loud that we simply wanted to leave.
Wonderful meal! The service was excellent and food was delicious.
Amazing service. Food is always great!
Well done Tao! Service and food was exceptional. We all enjoyed the multiple courses. Tuna tartare. Shrimp tempura roll, spicy tuna roll, Avocado tempura and salmon entree - we loved every course. Lychee martinis used to have toasted coconut flakes. Miss that added touch. And my lychee was a mere quarter piece which was disappointing. Bartender needs better attention to detail. That was the only miss. A giant fortune color was brought to the table - just wow. Very lovely added touch. Asked for a table to allow for business discussion and permission granted. You earned 5 stars. Looking forward to returning.
Great food good service, will come back ASAP 😂
Thank you very much. I loved everything thing. I liked a lot the music, food, attention from the waiter, and the waitress. That day was my birthday, and they put candles on my dessert, and a beautiful note wishing my a Happy Birthday. Thank you!
Thank you for an amazing experience for my husband’s birthday!
Food was ok, nothing special in my opinion. I really enjoyed the lobster rice but pad Thai was not great at all. Service was poor, slow responses had to ask multiple times before being seen. There was an issue with using my card and the waiter was very rude and unhelpful and then called the manager over as to imply that I was the problem! Overall not that great of an experience personally, the restaurant Has very nice decor, Loved the Buddha statue inside.
Always great! Love Sunday nights as more family and quieter for me and my 14?year old daughter! Always consistent and delicious!
Service was amazing! Waiter was very attentive and the food was delicious! I would definitely be back!!
6 ppl from Italy, waiter very helpful with menu choices, they also prepared a sweet with candle for a frown celebrating her birthday
Belated birthday celebration and food was good.
A little dark even to read menu but like the vibe- it was a good night
Food was great. I enjoyed the ambiance and the prices were reasonable.
Underwhelming food. Nothing tasted fresh. Entree was fried rice with pork. My son had the beef and noodles. Wife had the crispy chicken. Pretty mediocre all around.
Outstanding. Loved every dish. We loved our waitress - she was very nice, helpful and efficient. Thanks for the fun time.
The place has a great vibe and feel to it and decorations. But the food it ehh, feels like your eating over priced takeout food. The orange chicken tasted no better than the local Panda Express. I was impressed by their venue but their food is a pass. First and last time going there. $32 for some orange chicken with white rice. I promise you your local China king can complete with these guys.
I love this restaurant. The ambiance is great. I always like a quiet restaurant and this fit the bill. We even had a large group next to us. The food is great as well. Be bold and try something new. I never do that and this didn't disappoint. I love the Big Buddha.
very nice dinner for son's birthday. he called it the best dinner ever
Service was a little slow on our side. Waiter was not very attentive. But overall experience was great. The lady greeter took the effort to accommodate our request for upstairs seating. Food was amazing!!
Great food, love the glazed Chilean sea bass!!
It was our anniversary and it’s the 1st place to actually look at what I put the occasion was on opentable. At the end of dinner they brought us a plate with dessert that wrote out Happy Anniversary and it really made the night. Definitely going to go again!
Molto bello il posto, costi assolutamente assurdi (19€ una tempra con 2 GAMBERI di numero, 65€ la bottiglia di vino più economica!!). Ottimi i dolci. Bagni mediamente puliti, personale cordiale ma niente degno di nota.
Ambiente agradável. Pratos deliciosos. Excelente serviço
Great food good ambience and atmosphere
The food was mediocre. I have had better and for cheaper. The waitress was incredibly rude even though she only visited our table twice while we were there; those two times being to get our order and to bring us our check. The only thing that was great about our meal was the ambiance. In addition, there is only one option for a person who is vegan and it is not the Pad Thai (like normally can be made vegan everywhere else) but was some other Asian noodle dish that was not all that great. When I called to ask if there were options for vegans before we came, the person who answered said that their were several options.
it was wonderful but the music was not good. get a new DJ because what he picks should be in another venue not TAO
As the evening went on, the music volume increased making it hard for conversation at the end of out visit.
Disappointed with waiters carrying chairs over our heads as we enjoyed our anniversary dinner. They recovered by offering us an amazing complimentary desert tray.
We got the Chef's choice hoping to be impressed but it ended up being nearly all low quality salmon. Terrible presentation. We paid $69 for a worse experience than if we would have just ordered 2 specialty rolls. Massive disappointment. We're never coming back.
Very good. Great music and really good food. It was a vibe.
Having to wait for another 30min after my
Reservation was set did not make for a great experience at all. The drinks made in the front bar while waiting were made too quick and way too strong. It was obvious the bartender was pushing out drinks and worried about quantity not quality.
The food and service after the wait was great.
Little cramped other than that food is good
We had an amazing time the food was excellent as always the fried was was soo good !!! And the portions are huge ! You can definitely share a meal if you wanted too .
Our waiter was fabulous giving us a brief, unbelievable history of the building as well as exceptional service. Ambiance, Taotini and sea bass skewers excellent. Tables and seats way too close together. Literally touching allows with the person on the bench next to me. Good thing I’m thin, 6 inches to squeeze in! Can’t wait to go back
The food was genuinely good... now, was it worth the price??? Mmmm nope. It was more ambiance and a pretty place than the food itself. Overall, it was a good experience, but I am not one to like throw my money away for a insta pic or a cool check in... and that it’s all this place have to offer...
Always a great time! We go to Tao a lot when visiting the city from the Hudson Valley. Food is always on point and the service is wonderful.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Tao. Everything was great, from the staff, service, food, and decor. Our server, Juan, was exceptional. His suggestions were on point, he was patient and very helpful. He truly made our experience memorable. The food was very tasty, the spicy tuna on crispy rice was our favorite! This is a must stop if you are visiting NYC!
The best restaurant in Manhattan!🥰
It's a pity . To much noise, it's was imposible talk with my couple. The place very nice, and the food very good.
We waited to be seated for 1 HOUR!!!
