Tao Restaurant and Nightclub Ratings and Reviews
Environment was very glam and Vegas, which was great. Food was horrible. Ordered the special Chinese New Year lobster noodle dish and it was the toughest lobster I’ve ever had set on top of over-cooked Lipton cup-o-noodles. Way over priced...which I expect in Vegas but I usually come away liking what I over-paid for...not at Tao. Go for the atmosphere, not the food.
Food was great and the service impeccable. Whole drinks are pricey, you are in Vegas. I got Pad Thai and the portion was big enough that my sister and I split it along with goyozas. Ambiance was nice, could be a little dark for some but I enjoyed it. Not too loud, yet lively enough. We had reservations and running late but they were kind to hold our table with a simple phone call. I would eat there again if in town.
We have eaten at Tao several times so this was not our first experience. My daughter was turning 16 and Tao is her favorite restaurant in Las Vegas. We were seated promptly and found our table to be in a section we hadn't been seated before, it was a great spot and easy to take in the Asian-Rim atmosphere. Once seated we were greeted by Danielle our server who was fantastic. She wore an amazing smile that matched her personality and friendliness. You knew from the minute we sat down we were going to have a wonderful experience. Our apps (pot stickers and spring rolls) were delicious and our meals were equally tasty, so much flavor. Danielle topped us off with a huge fortune cookie birthday treat filled with white and chocolate mousse. It was exceptionally good with a beautiful presentation.
I had done my search before choosing Tao for our anniversary dinner. There are only 2 things that were on the down side: 1- booking time, we booked our table 8:45 and were only seated at 9:30, we understood it was a busy night and we decided to just go with the flow. 2- We ordered some drinks during the wait time and since it was so crowded, service was slow and trying to get to bartender was impossible, so I managed to get hold of a server and ordered my drinks only to find out they could prepare as they had run out of Drambuie, so my Rusted Nail had to wait. The rest you have to experience it, for us the food was delicious, very tasty , real delicatessen. Our server was also very attentive and great attitude towards service. Dessert is another outstanding experience of flavours and textures, so leave room. Highly recommend this place.
I love TAO we go every wedding anniversary this year we sat in a small section a little uncomfortable but it was nice and fun. I couldn’t hear my wAiter at times because it was so loud. It was super crowded and I had a broken glass spill all over my leg. But overall I will go back maybe next time we can have better seating and actually get seated at our reservation time and not an hour later.
Not as nice as the New York Tao.
Staff moody at Tao Las Vegas don’t smile so unfriendly.
Service was so poor
They need a few lessons on service and how to treat guests and diners. Respect first listen to the diners and friendlyness.
But we go for the food and that wasn’t 5 star no complaints
Def with a visit
Took my wife here for Valentine's day dinner while in Vegas. Sever was very attentive to my wife's dietary needs. She was extremely knowledgeable about all the menu items. Her service was excellent. Food selection and quality was very good. Portions were on the small side and prices are high for what you get, but all in all it was a very nice dinner.
Overall Great Experience. We were seated at a table in the bar while our dining table was readied for us. After 10 minutes or so we were escorted to a great table upstairs. Our waiter was fantastic about suggestions. We had a Gluten Free diner with us and our waiter had lots of ideas. Everything we ordered was perfect and delicious. Recommend! We also loved the fortunes in the cookies :)
Their version of an entree featuring Chilean Sea Bass was delicious! And we opted for an Asparagus side dish that was a great compliment. (Read my end notes with my rave review of a surprise birthday dessert.) For a special occasion, this spot has a warm, dark interior decorated with various Buddhas, a huge photo of a Zen Garden, as well as other oriental touches throughout the bar and dining rooms; including calligraphy on the ceiling! An impressive, giant Buddha is seated with a Koi pond in the main dining area. A small bar and about six booths in the bar area looked inviting. Tables on the second floor were being seated near the end of our meal. (I was happy on the main level.) Note: This is a Nightclub, too, so the music is varied, and struck us as a bit out-of-sync with the ambience. Families were also being seated in our main area, which signaled to me that any group, couples, or individuals are welcomed here. A good wine list and cocktail menu offered a number of options for perfect pairings with main dishes. "Everything is served ala carte," was explained by our efficient server, Darion. This was a special birthday, which I had noted on my Open Table reservation. They bowled us over when they presented a GIANT, but delicate, Fortune Cookie (one side with vanilla mouse, and the other with a chocolate side), fresh fruit, and a small chocolate plaque that said, "Happy Birthday" with a lit candle held in a raspberry. This special treat could have been a sweet taste for six or eight, but it was just me and my sister. I felt guilty leaving such a tasty, light treat, but our stomachs were happy with the fish dish, a grilled vegetable, and bites of the latter. TAO offers an energetic setting with menus that requires a night light to read, as their font size is a bit small. I'm glad were were able to sample some of their seafood.
Sushi roll was very bland and not impressive. Service was terrible. Our waiter was short and abrupt and didn’t sell the menu at all. I dine at Tao twice a year when I travel to Vegas for work and usually receive great service but this time was much different. Normally I love the food and experience of Tao, it seems like they’re slipping.
I went Tao the 1st month it opened and ate there 5 years later and again this week...all three times were great...service always good but this last time, our waitress was right up there with the best...knowledgeable suggestions and you can tell she was well trained in customer service...wish i remembered her name...gotta get the giant fortune cookie, its unusual and very good...a must...
The food and service were outstanding! We went back a second night and with all of the excellent restaurants in Vegas, that says a lot! The spicy tuna tartare on crispy rice is a must have! For my boyfriend's birthday they brought out a huge fortune cookie filled with chocolate mousses - yum!
Our 36th. Wedding anniversary!! It was super delicious. And they were so kind and gave us a fortune cookie, but the beauty of it was that was 40 times bigger and beautifully filled with White Chocolate Mouse in one side and in the other Chocolate Mouse!!! And it came with 2 fortunes!! Me and my Loving Wife were blown up with happiness!! Thank you Tao!! Highly Recommended
