Table wasn't ready when we arrived. Bar area where we were asked to wait was packed. When we were shown to our table there were 3 empty ones there. The 4 dishes we ordered all came at the same time and didn't fit on the table. Food taste was average and 1 was very greasy. Overall it was disappointing.

Good food & service. Cramped seating. The bill was presented without request after the last plate was taken and we were still drinking.

Super friendly staff, average food.
We were slightly disappointed with this restaurant. We went expecting a lot, but left feeling like we had been to an average place in Midtown Manhattan. The food was just ok, oily and not creative. I could not finish my dish because it was too oily. The steamed bamboo / vegetarian dumplings were good though! Staff was very friendly, efficient and nice.

We waited over 45 minutes for our reservation while there were plenty of open tables. The food and ambience are wonderful but the front desk is a mess and makes the whole thing a one -time only experience. As much as we loved the food we won't go back. Management needs to fix the front desk!!

We come to New York at least twice per year for medical conferences. We are going to make Tao Uptown a must stop each time.

Waiter disappeared after rushing our order. The fortune cookie dessert had very inappropriate fortunes.
