I have been to TAO many times. And the experience is always enjoyable. But my credit card chip was removed thIs time. I didn’t notice it until the next day. No charges were made but still unnerving.
Otherwise food was very good

Went for dinner after theater with 3 teenage girls. They accommodated us and the girls loved “the scene.” We danced in our seats to the songs and had a great rime. Thank you to the staff for making us feel welcomed.

Fabulous restaurant providing lovely Asian ambiance and delicious food and drinks. I would recommend this place especially for special occasions and large groups that can share and experience the large assortment of appetizers, sushi, small plates, entrees and even desserts. The vegetable dumplings and vegetable fried rice were the best I have ever tasted. The sugar donuts with 3 dipping sauces was wonderful but I would have enjoyed any dessert on the menu. Cocktails were good but not worth $18. Service was terrific and although the place was crowded, we had plenty of time to enjoy each course. Although rather costly, this is a fun and casual venue for all ages to enjoy.

Their lunch special was inadequate and bordered on the lines of fast food. But that would be disrespectful to fast food. Bland overpriced and uninspired.
