About Tao Restaurant and Nightclub
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.

Tao Restaurant and Nightclub Ratings and Reviews
Made a reservation for 915. Showed up on time. We were told it wouldn't be too long. We didn't get seated until 1030 and were seated next to the server station. When we asked to pull the table out a little because servers were literally hitting a member of our group, our server did this but another server made a rude comment and hand motion that we were not meant to see.
It's too bad because the food was delicious and so was the atmosphere, but people make a difference and they were rude especially after waiting over an hour past our reservation time.
I've been coming to Tao for several years. Their Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass is the best dish on the PLANET. --> HOWEVER, this time the dining experience was HORRIBLE. I had a 9:30 pm reservation, but did not get seated until 10:20 pm. When we were shown to the table, one side of it was against a bench/booth where a connector/joint in the seating was present. So, when I first sat down, I damn near fell into the crack. I immediately got up and asked the hostess for another table, without the crack between the seats. She balked as if my request was unreasonable and told me we'd have to wait at the front again -- even though there was an open table right behind us. I then explained that after waiting almost an hour for a table, when I had a reservation, that would be very unfair. She then got a manager, and he showed us to another open table. Tao now cramps way to many people in too little space. The food is still excellent. But, the service and experience are now horrible.
Special occasion for my son's college graduation. Easy to make reservation. They followed up with phone call and email to confirm. Placed in premium seeting location as requested and served up fabulous drinks and spectacular food choices. Setting was perfect and the service at all points of contact were 5 star.
Cannot thank you enough!
We were in Vegas for vacation went to Tao restaurant for dinner on a Sunday night. Living in NYC I've been to to the NYC location decided to try the Vegas location.
The food at this restaurant was beyond excellent. Started with a specialty sushi roll for appetizer which was the tastiest sushi I have ever eaten. Main course was tuna, which was delicious and prepared perfect. Surprisingly the portions were bigger than expected for fine dinning restaurant. More than enough food. Ambiance in restaurant was nice , dark, great for a date.
3 servers kept on top of us to make sure we were taken care of but not overly interrupting. Great experience.
We always love Tao whether we're in Vegas or NYC. The service is always friendly & attentive. The food never disappoints. On this trip my husband had a special of the day sushi to start that was very good & we shared the delicious pork potstickers. Then he had their scallop dish, which he loved, while I enjoyed "Mr. Wong's Jumbo shrimp in a fantastic garlic, onion & bell pepper sauce. We accompanied our meal with veggie fried rice & it was perfect! They have a nice wine list as well. We love to go back again & again.
Had booking table was not ready till about 20 minutes. Given a buzzer to wait. Not expected at this level of dinning.
Three goodlooking women on the desk could have been a bit more efficient, welcoming and engaging. The customery and fairly disingenuous US welcome of "how are you?" Is asked to all, but they are not actually asking.
Pointed in the direction of seats, but not clear if we were to go get drinks ourselves or not.
Fixed seats round the bar made it difficult to order without intruding on others. Some clearer comms. from the front desk would have helped there.
Not enough staff on the bar, she was multitasking serving three to four at once. But would have been better to simply serve one and move on to the next person. She quickly made our drinks but took about 5 minutes to take my payment. Due to the poor service received in the first 15 mins of entering the restaurant, she was the first and only person that I never tipped.
Taken through the back by another dry yet astectically pleasing member of staff. Who handed us over to a highlight for the evening, our waitress who was excellent, genuine well spoken and did have the people skills to interact effectively. She offered excellent suggestions for food from a fairly long Asian themed menu.
The food is a "fusion" of Thai, Japanese, Chinese and others. While it is nice, I could imagine Gordon Ramsey ripping through the menu with a barage of expletives with his ultimate point being keep it simple and be a master at a few dishes without trying to please everyone. In the end we all decided to go for a selection of dishes that the nice waitress would select.
Food was fine but uninspired. For about $100 per head (no wine), I have definitely had better sushi Asian fare. Best thing about the food was it was much healthier than many of the US options. Would I go again? No, too many other options out there in Vegas within a similarly pretentious price bracket.
Service 3 stars = FOH 0, Bar 0, waitress 3.
I've been to Tao before and took my friends and family who's never been. I raved about the food based on my previous visits and was sadly disappointed this time with the food. We ordered the lobster pad Thai among other entrees and it was bland. Definitely was not worth the price that was paid.
