Guests are transported from the City of Sin to the Pacific Rim inside TAO Asian Bistro, a 60,000 square-foot, multi-story “Asian City” housing a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge and nightclub. Lush velvets and silks, waterfalls and century-old woods and stones accentuate the experience, and the restaurant’s signature 20-foot Buddha watches over every corner of the restaurant while floating peacefully above an infinity pool complete with Japanese koi.

Corporate Executive Chef Ralph Scamardella has developed a menu for the 400-seat restaurant by incorporating culinary components from China, Japan and Thailand. Signature dishes include offerings from sea, sky and land including Chilean Sea Bass Satay with Wok Roasted Asparagus, a preparation of Peking Duck that consistently receives accolades, and Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu along with a full sushi bar.

Poor service compared to New York. Waitresses do not serve specific tables so every time new waiters, slow and unattentive. Food was good but for that price, staff should be nicer. Maybe they simply get a bad crowd in Vegas and the waiters anticipate that. All and all a disappointing experience. I was there with my family (4 kids) and my daughter had her birthday. They didn’t do anything for her. We love Asian food and Tao NY (downtown and uptown) is one of our favourites. We can confidently say the Vegas restaurant is the “lesser” version of the original, it doesn’t compare really.

It will sound like a punch line, but I brought co-workers and once we sat down, I realized I was ordering for 2 Jews and a Vegan. Tao didn't blink. They had plenty of options and were willing to adapt when options might not have been available. The staff was courteous, flexible and professional and the food was AMAZING!

Great food, service and ambiance. We were there as part of the girls weekend getaway , such a fun place with great menu choices. Love the Lychee Martini
Very convenient that the waiters reccomend ordering some dishes served family style to share. This gave us the opportunity of trying many diffrent things.
Love the Duck spring rolls, Crispy Pork Bao Buns and the chilean sea bass!

We asked for a booth when they sat us at table. We were a group of 3. They said it was for 6. But the same exact size booth next to it only had 2 people. The host lied and said it was smaller. It was not. Terrible. We eat at Tao every time we come to Vegas at least twice a year. Never had a bad experience until now. Probably that is our last visit. I usually rave about Tao. Not this time letting everyone know.

I thought that the food was subpar and has gone downhill since the last visit about 5 years ago. We were a party of 6 and although the food came out in a timely manner my friend's drinks took quite a long time. I was just drinking water and only had my glassed filled once.

Overall the atmosphere looks cool, but it is too dark to see the menu so most other tables were shining their cell phones on the menus which ended up in my eyes. It was also loud for the dinner hours since the room is so big so I could not hear much of our conversation.

I do not think I will be coming back to this place.

All in all our experience with Tao was "meh." The atmosphere is nice but the overall service was average at best. We ordered an appetizer which came out quickly and was wonderful! (Kobe skewers). For our main course, however, we ordered a number of small plates so we could sample 5 or 6 different items. When I ordered I asked that the food be paced in such a way as to avoid a table crammed with food that is getting cold. (We were seated at a two top so space was tight.) Well...they did exactly what I asked them NOT to do and brought out ALL the dishes at the same time. As expected this led to a tabletop that barely had a place to sit our drinks down...and food that got cold before we had a chance to try everything even once. The pre-tip total for our meal was around $185 which, with drinks, is an average "nice" dinner out. What it left me with, however, was mentally running through a quick list of all the places where I could have put $185 to better use for better service...and warm food.

We had the sushi and it was great! Our waitress was nice but she had a cold and was caughing at our table, didn’t really like that. I was also unpleasantly surprised to find a lady at the bathroom offering service and having a tip jar, if I’d had known I would have brought money, now I wasn’t able to give a tip. During restaurant hours, I don’t appreciate this service, more appropriate for club time.

We had some issues with the servers disappearing on us. 6:30 reservation-Only two of us so we could have been in and out in an hour if we took our time-but the server never came back to our table after asking if we wanted drinks. We had to flag down a manager to get a server to take our order. The food was good-we ate light. I don't usually get desert-but the giant fortune cookie was worth it. They cleared the table-then we waited about thirty minutes until we flagged the same manager for our check. He was very nice and apologetic. We were not in a hurry so I didn't say much-but it ended up being an almost two hour meal. We thought it was a little funny to seem invisible. Other tables that sat after us came, ate and went before ever got our main course. I would go back-probably early though. The atmosphere was very cool with a giant Buddha.

We had a great evening at Tao. They were very busy and we arrived a bit early, but they accommodated us with a great booth near the bar. The bartenders were some of the best I've seen in Vegas: really hustling to take care of everyone and very friendly.

Took some out of towner co-workers from down under Australia and our meal was fantastic! Sushi, Edamame and all of us got the Chilean Sea Bass. Our server was wonderful and right on point. Only wish we didn't have to eat there so early (5:15 pm) because it gets really exciting as the evening goes on and the place gets busier. When in Vegas, will go back as often as possible!
