Quite amazing! Expected nothing less from TAO.
Best restaurant in town
The service and food was great
Went to celebrate wife’s birthday. Had booked outside but the reservation was switched to inside without telling us. Food and drink were outstanding as usual but the only thing I would change was that the MUSIC WAS TOO LOUD! We had real difficulty talking to and hearing each other as a result
Loud cool vibe.
Average food but great dessert (fortune cookie)
Amazing. One of my favorite restaurants. Everything we ate was amazing and everyone was efficient and friendly.
Awesome experience we had the chefs special plates and it was great!!
Service was amazing and the food tasted delicious!
Waiting for table take too long time even with reservation. Food is bad……. Too salty………..
The greatest place on Earth! Great for birthday dinner
TAO Downtown A must was a great experience celebrating my daughter's birthday I would definitely recommend going to TAO
A fun place to visit and ambiance was nice.Our food: Spring Rolls (Divine); Glazed Salmon and Orange Chicken (Delicious).
Dine here if you want a premium experience where the staff actually cares about your wants/needs. Extremely patient servers who listen to all of your questions and answers knowledgeably. The food quality was spectacular and worth the expensive prices.
My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary very much although we requested a balcony table, my instructions were not taking into account during initial seating, I still enjoyed the table that they seated us at, thank you very much TAO, a very beautiful and elegant restaurant. The food has a very unique taste to it. Tastes delicious. Highly recommend
Food and service was great! Better than anticipated.
I picked this restaurant to celebrate my college graduation and it did not disappoint! I loved the food, atmosphere, and amazing location in Chelsea near the Highline and other attractions. My dad wished there were more sushi options and I wished the desserts were bigger (sweet tooth check) but overall the food was amazing and service is stellar! Worth every penny if you like Asian food and want something special
Atmosphere was vibrant. Food was great. Definitely the best nightlife experience I’ve had.
Food and service were phenomenal. However, when it comes to attire, they are not strict. My reservation was for Saturday night dinner and there were people looking like they just came back from the beach.
Excellent experience! Love the decor and the ambiance of TAO. Deliscious food and thankful they had vegan options!!🙂🙂
great food and ambiance!
Great environment, great food and great service! Highly recommended.
At atmosphere at Tao is always a good vibe! The restaurant is classy and the food is amazing.
i wanted to go here since the day i moved to new york and i saw it and i always thought it looked beautiful, so we saved it for a special ocassion and it did not dissapoint!!! the food was absolutely delicious. definitely would go back
Third time at a TAO restaurant and they are simply the best. First time at TAO Downtown, and everything was exceptional.
Great , splendid
It’s was fantastic!!
Very very good
We will come back!
I had a wonderful birthday dinner here! I will definitely come again.
Had a great time and the waitress Hannah was very professional and did a great job
Pleasant surprise. Was expecting ambiance mostly but the food offerings are amazingly good. Best meal of the long Memorial Day weekend that centered on culinary experiences and included several Michelin starred venues. Enjoyed every single course. Very attentive services. Good wine selections. Looking forward to a return trip before long.
Great atmosphere, excellent service; tasty food; Had a great time for my anniversary; first time in Tao downtown; loved it; definitely going back
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. The food was amazing, the drinks were ok but the dessert was the highlight!
We celebrated my wife and my son B day Sunday evening. TAO downtown has beautiful ambiance. The food was amazing. Appetizers, lobster rolls and veg pad thei were delicious. Main meal beef and broccoli, glazed salmon and crispy orange chicken with white rice was excellent. Giant fortune cookie with two candles was yummy.
Our waiter, Jonathan made our evening pleasurable. He was professional, courteous and friendly. Answered all my questions and was very helpful.
The service from entrance to departure was excellent.
Highly recommend TAO downtown.
I loved the ambiance, the music ,and food was AMAZING !! I could not have picked a better experience !
Loved the food, drinks and atmosphere! Will definitely be back next time we are in NYC.
Reminded by server twice that we needed to be out by 9:15. We had all our food served and done eating by 8:15. Dinners came at different times. Why?? You pay a nice price to enjoy. I can manage the tune. Don’t need to be reminded especially when we are completely on time. Ridiculous. Won’t do it again. Way to kill what should have been a very nice time.
It was nice just getting together. Server was not too friendly, it was uncomfortable. Asked him questions and he acted irritated, but that was the only issue we had. Overall we had a wonderful dinner and great laughs!
The place was so nicely ran. The waitress was very tentative and also came to check on us but she wasn’t overwhelming and hovering. The environment was very intimate yet had a chill ambience. All of the food was great and the drinks 😍!!! Try the TAO tini! It’s amazing !
Customer service beyond good and food was delicious
Group of 10 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Our server Kevin, was amazing. Food was great! We will definitely visit again!!
Once again Tao does not disappoint!
Service, decor, music and FOOD!
Food is great regardless of what you end up ordering.
This time we tried Lobster fried rice, lobster wonton, Brussels sprouts (do it!) and grilled branzino and filet.
Dessert platter is quite a display and don’t let the size fool you. the taste is heavenly. Giant fortune cookie filled with cream, soft and pillowy donut with caramel dipping sauce and their brownie was similar to molten lava cake.
Can’t wait to dine here again!
Oh and their drinks are quite strong and well curated. (either that or I’m just light weight)
