Success! Thanks for posting your review of Tao. You’ve done the world some good today.

Our celebration

Having tried Tao, we wanted to try something new for my wife's 30th birthday. I decided to reserve Tao since the ratings were pretty good. Décor is beautiful , food is gourmet. As specially Roasted Thai Buddha Chicken . The service was above average.

Please read!!

Timing: 10:30pm reservation, seated at 11:25. Appetizer came out at 12:30, dinner at 1:15am, birthday cake at 1:45am.

Food: Mediocre at best. DEFINITELY over rated.

Music: Like a club, can't hear the person across from you.

These are all things that go with a trendy place with a crazy atmosphere.

1 star because of the bouncers! We were leaving at 2am right after cake and while I was using the ladies room

Average not great

Hi i have been going tao since they first opened and must say the food is average not as great as it once was. I ordered the seabass and in the past it had more falor to it. The ambience though is as good as it allways been which is why I am giving the place 3 stars

Had a great time!

I went to Tao for my cousins 21st birthday, and had a fantastic time. The food was decent, as were the peach cosmos. We stayed until 2 am!

Be advised though, make sure your whole party arrives ON TIME! They say you have 15 minutes after your reservation to get there. We were all there at the right time, except two people, so they wouldn't seat us. Those people arrived at the 15 minute mark and we still weren't se

Worst Customer Service and Rude....

I have been to Tao about 5 times over the past few years. I have always gone with a party of 2 and have never had any complaints.

This time - I reserved a table for 8. I contacted the Maitre'D the day of the reservation to explain and confirm they could accomodate 5 of us sitting at our reservation start time and the other 3 arriving a half hour later. He said -- NO PROBLEM SEE ME WHEN YOU ARRIVE.

So - We arri

Rude Staff

I'm a native new yorker and have gone to many great restaurants throughout the city, but this was NOT one of them! Even though we had reservations, we still had to wait 60 minutes to get seated. Then waited another 15 minutes for the waiter to take our order. It took 45 minutes for them to bring out our food which was bland and barely warm! Plus,t they kept rushing us. Needless to say, I did NOT leave a tip! Not one... view more

On March, 3rd, 2011, I had the worst dinning experience in NYC. I went to TAO with my best friend, her mother, and her family who was visiting from Brazil. Unfortunately we were extremely disrespected by everyone in the restaurant. Our waitress was rude, disrespectful and impatient with our group of 7 people. Our group had 4 elderly people who did not speak English very well. The waitress did not even try to be pleas... view more
