    Amazing food in a hollywood setting

    Went here for restaurant week and am in love! Go now as this is such a deal for an amazing restaurant. We had the peking duck spring rolls and vegetable dumplings to start. Very generous portions and classic presentation. For entrees we had the NY wok cooked sirloin - absolutely wonderful! Could not believe how much meat they gave you. Came in a great ginger sauce with sauteed mushroom. We also got the miso grilled salmon with udon noodles and spinach. Again, great. For dessert had the apple spring roll with icecream and tropical fruits with sorbet. This meal was so wonderful. I would love to go back asap. Definitely go during restaurant week if you can get in.

    Coming to a Mall Near you.....

    Let's kick this off by saying the food was pretty good. Highly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass skewers.... waitress was adequate. Scene was Bridge & Tunnel and for a hip mid-town scene, or supposed scene, we were disappointed. Poorly managed from a space perspective at the get go - coat-check backed up into the street, host/hostess lacking in charisma and talent. Nothing like going to eat in mid-town Manhattan and being given a buzzer.... felt like I walked in to the Cheesecake Factory at Riverside Square.... why waste the money on Manhattan real estate for the Jersey mall feel....Once and done for this New Yorker.

    Trendy Fusion

    I took my girlfriend to Tao to celebrate her acceptance into medical school. Despite what is posted about long waits for seating, ours wasn't too bad. Got there at 6:15 for a 6:30 reservation, were seated by 6:40. One downside is that we were seated at a booth all the way in the back corner which didn't leave us with a very good view of the giant Buddha plus we were in the corner where everyone is going down the stairs toward the restrooms. Nevertheless, the food was quite good. The satay chilean seabass and tuna sashimi rolls appetizers were spectacular. I do not like sushi and this is the first time that I have ever liked it. For entrees, I had the Wok Seared Sirloin, which was quite good, and I was very impressed with the portion size as compared to standard upscale restaurant portions. She had the spicy tuna roll and the salmon, crab, avocado roll. She liked both of them, but felt that the rolls were smaller than normal. For dessert, we shared the Fuji Apple spring rolls, which was also good. Overall, I definitely enjoyed it and would certainly go back, if only my wallet would allow me to do so more often!

    A great place to take groups...

    Tao is such a fun restuarant to take large groups. The ambience is fun with great decor, music, and a "scene." Not the best place for a romantic outing, it's definitely high energy and loud.The sea bass is one of the best I've ever experienced in NYC. I've been back at least 5 times and always have a great time....

    Expect to wait past your reservation

    I had a great time at Tao, the food was amazing and the service was also very good. Yes, the bar is beautiful, and there is plenty of room to hang out while you wait for your table-but-we had a reservation at 8pm and we didn't get seated until 9pm. This wound up being okay because we had some drinks and enjoyed our seat at the bar (and thankfully my low-blood sugar didn't kick in) but this could cause a serious problem for some people. So I figured I would post this as a warning, you really have to know this before you go- otherwise, place is awesome. Any restaurant that can keep their marks this high, this long, is a friggin landmark. Great food, have fun!

    Great Atmosphere & Sushi

    Great atmosphere.....It is a very trendy spot.....The only complaint is the wait. I had reservations for 9pm....we arrived at 8:30 and were not seated until 9:45pm....Other than that, it was great!

    Mixed Feelings

    There was a very mixed crowd - older socialites, young and trendy students, families with young children as well as business people. It is an attractive environment, but it's far too dark and is EXTREMELY noisy. I couldn't even hear someone who was sitting directly across from me at a very small table. Service is great, although we were on our way to be seated at a table when they realized there was no table to seat us at and abandoned us in the middle of the packed dining room. I am hesitant to go there again, despite the fact that our food was delicious.
