    must try

    Great food and a hectic atmosphere depending on the night. The service is really good for the amount of customers.

    Divine Food & Lively Ambience

    I took my best friend to Tao last week to celebrate her birthday as the menu looked delicious and it's a trendy place. After lounging on the couches by the bar waiting to be called, we were seated upstairs which we preferred as it was quieter and you could hear yourself talk. We shared the veggie dumpling appetizer, both ordered the chilean sea bass (the best I've ever had) followed by their Tao herbal blend tea (camomile and lavender) with their chocolate molten cake for dessert. It was served with coconut shavings and 2 long chopsticks made of dark chocolate that was melt in your mouth delicious. So I give that restaurant 2 thumbs up. Also, the waiter was accomodating when I asked for a slight modification to my entree and dessert.

    Tried and True

    I have been to this place 6 times and each time I have been fully satisfied with the food, service and amazing atmosphere. Think Sex and the City. Don't even think about wearing jeans to this place. I have tried most of their stuff, but I would recommend spring rolls or any of the steamed dumplings for openers, the wasabi filet, steak (slices) with shiitake mushrooms for entrees, tao-tini and lychee martini for drinks, and the molten chocolate cake is a must if you like chocolate. Their sushi also looks beutiful, but I hate sushi. Also, do not even try to get in this place on friday or Saturday without a reservation, because you will not be eating that night if you don't, and I am not kidding. I definitely would recommend this place!

    Must Try

    This is an extremely tready place. full of well dressed, beautiful, men and women. it's always full. the music is loud, true, but that's the point. it's not just a place to eat, it's a place to hang out while you are eating. and celeb's have been known to dine here. last time we went, we saw two victoria secret models (at the bar, i dont think those women ever eat). if your into fun, hip, happening places, this is a must!

    A little too noisy but good music

    The food was good not terrific. I ordered the wasabi filet mignon which was very tender. The black pepper filet with udon noodles was very good also. It was a bit too noisy. The music was great but you were not able to talk to one another. You had to scream to for the person right next to you to hear what you were saying. They should lower the music just a little. The duck spring rolls were pretty good. The fortune cookie dessert was fun and really tasty. The tao-tini is nothing to brag about. The picture of the drink on the website looks so good but all it really tastes like is cranberry and vodka. Order the sake-tini even though its somewhat of a strong drink but it will get you tipsy pretty fast. I would go again but more for the atmosphere and not so much for the food. It was expensive for food that is good but not great.

    I have been here 6 times and never once have I been disappointed. I will recommend the wasabi filet mignon, beef w/shiitake mushrooms, kung pao chicken, and the signature tao-tini. The dessert I reccomend is the molten lava cake with coconut ice cream, hands down. A close second is the raspberry wonton. We were seated (8 of us) at a beautiful round table, with a glass top over a marble bath with rose petals and floating candles, right in front of the Buddah. Oh, and be sure to get a reservation if you plan on actually eating here between the hours of 7:00 and 11:30pm.

    Go for lunch

    I have been to Tao several times for both dinner and lunch. The food and specialty drinks have always been excellent. The dumplings are great, the Kung Pao Chicken is the best I have had and the Choc/Raspberry Wonton dessert is incredible. The food is certainly overpriced but if you go for lunch, they have a $24 prix fixe that includes app, dinner and dessert and the choices are very good. The service is very average and the place is very loud so it is difficult to have a conversation if you are with a large group but the atmosphere is worth seeing at least one time.
