Don’t recommend for lunch. Dead. Bad service.
Service was very profesional and efficient. The food was incredibly and the ambiance was breathtaking. I brought my girlfriend out for dinner on her birthday and we both agree we will definitely be back to explore more dishes from the menu.
Great food and atmosphere absolutely recommended.
Birthday dinner after a show with my daughter. Food and service were terrific.
The food was super salty and it felt not at all delicate like they are using salt to hide the fact that the true taste isn’t up to par. Very disappointed by the branzino and Chilean sea bass it was literally a sea of salt from the salad to the veggies.
Wait staff was confused and slow to respond
All was perfect! The restaurant is specially designed and the food was excellent.
My husband and I have eaten there a couple of times for special occasions, and this time we took the whole family to celebrate a milestone birthday and had a blast. The food is so incredibly delicious.
The sea bass is amazing! My favorite restaurant. Period
It was absolutely horrible! The worst service I have ever had and we go out all the time! We brought our 13 year old and 10 year old early enough to be there and they treated us so bad! My kids eat adult portions! We will never go back!
You make a reservation and sit you at a communal table which is not at all appropriate for the amount of money you spend there. When I told the hostess I wasn’t comfortable with a communal table she said it’s a 45 minute wait for a table for two when I had seen many available tables for two.
When the waitress came over we told her that we didn’t feel comfortable with the arrangements for the table and we seated at another table immediately.
Beautiful restaurant, delicious food! My daughters 14th Birthday Lunch, we ordered off the Prefix Lunch Menu and it was delicious and the so much food!!!!! We will definitely be back!!!
I loved this restaurant. I came here for my birthday the other day and it was amazing. The food, music and ambiance was spectacular but the service could of been a tad better. I had to countlessly ask for someone to get my server for things like refilling my water etc. but besides that everything else was great. They even had free toiletries like lotion, hair spray, mouthwash etc. in the restroom for guests to use and perfume as well. Overall good experience!
Wonderful table, waiter and food. A must when visiting NY!
Bit noisy but excellent food.
Bad food (fiilet mignon order medium rare dry like a shoe sole. Discussion not helpful as noise level too high. Never again.
Love love love this restaurant. Food is amazing and staff are very helpful
Loved the food, cocktails, service and atmosphere! Everything was excellent! Would definitely go again!
Fun family choice with teens. We were staying in Midtown to see Hamilton with our two daughters. Tao was a fun and energetic choice, with great sushi and choices to please everyone:)
Really great ambiance ! The food was delicious. I would go back.
Last time I am visiting Tao.
First was seated next to bathroom then when I ask for different table got attitude from hostess and was seated in the most trafficked area.
Food was only ok and not worth the money. Service was very pleasant.
Overall experience though is poor.
My favorite times at Tao are early dinners or late lunches. We had a Celebration. The drinks were great and the food was amazing! Even better than usual! All of it! And the fitting cookie dessert. We loved it!
It was our first time there and it was absolutely delicious!!! Will definitely be back. Our server was great as well, she was very personable.
Food is excellent. Pot stickers were amazing. Fun, lively atmosphere.
Had to wait longer than expected for the table. It was pretty busy. The service was very fast and the food was exceptional. I was not expecting how low the bill was, very fair price.
The food was truly phenomenal. Service was ok, not bad at all but it wasn't exquisite. It was pretty much standard service, but the food was worth it.
Comida media. Mal servicio y mucho ruido
Took over 15 min after being sat to get any service.
Yes, because of the wonderful atmosphere in the restaurant and the amazing appetizers. That is an experience worthwhile in itself.
I would not recommend them to eat a main course at the restaurant. We had the Tao lo mein, which was recommended to us by the waitress. She said this was one of their more popular dishes, tasteful and a personal favorite. This course was very boring and not worth the money at all. Quite disappointing and tasteless. I hope some of the other main dishes are better and doesn’t feel like a boring fast food dish.
I’m a rich kid and the waiter treated me like
Meeting an old friend
There was hair in my fried rice, the matter wasn’t taken care of by a manager or anyone of higher authority. It was simply removed from the table while the rest of my party was left to eat their rice. Very distasteful
Alguno de los platos solicitados fueron excelentes, otros debajo del promedio y de las expectativas... Nuestra mesera fue excelente pero el resto de las personas nos atendieron con displicencia, como si les estuvieramos haciendo un favor por estar allí... Ambiente muy ruidoso, con poco margen para conversar tranquilos. Me defraudó como evaluación general
I was celebrating my 29th bday and it was great, ambiance is beautiful food was good and I had a great time and of course the drinks was good too
The place is amazing, and the food very nice and not too much price. By the other hand, we made a reservation and when we checked-in, we had to wait around 25 minutes for a table. And the service was polite but little bit slow.
Celebrated daughters 8th birthday and I have been to this location for business lunches in the past. Great atmosphere, amazing service but the food was not as good as I had remembered. Probably won't go back after spending big number for the four of us.
Apparently if you do not order enough food, they will kick you to the standing bar area, asking you eat there. My friend and I ordered couple drinks, one appetizer, one main course, and plan to order two desserts. However, when we told our waitress that we only wanted one appetizer and one main course and plan to order dessert later, she reported to her manager and ask us to move to standing bar cuz the table is for dining customers. Very rude!!! Will not come again!
Todo perfecto excepto que la mesera nos si up todos los poros de la carta y solo éramos 4 comensales, se perdió comida que quedó servida por una mala accesoria de la persona que nos recomendó
Such a beautiful place, food is great and gets served fast, will come back again!
The only thing that I wasn’t satisfied about was the fact that I had reservations and still had to wait 45-60 minutes to be seated.
