Great food and environment
Beautiful setting with amazing food for the eyes and stomach. Accompanying cocktails were on point as was dessert!
Great food and service. I cant wait to explore more of the menu.
Celebrated my birthday. Food is exceptionally good. My favorite place right now
The food is excellent. The best shrimp tempura. Great ambiance. Seating is a bit close.
We went to Tao to celebrate a birthday. Upon arrival for our reservation at 8:15pm, we were told to wait in the sitting room or at the bar to be seated. We were not seated until about 8:50pm, which was frustrating considering we had a reservation made. After the initial poor impression on the restaurant, our waiter was very attentive and the food was great! Prices are on the higher end and would not say that they necessarily match to unbelievable food portions. In addition, nothing special was done for our friend celebrating his birthday.
Overall we had a nice time and enjoyed the food, but probably will not be back.
One of the best vibes and atmosphere in the city. Food is amazing and great selection of cocktails. Would absolutely recommend!
Good experience and vibe. Food was decent however got extremely sick. Definitely would go for the atmosphere and have a casual drink.
Very beautiful restaurant. We loved everything about it. The Pad Thai chicken, wagyu steak and orange chicken were delicious. The staff went over and beyond to make sure our dinner experience was great
The food was very good. The drinks were good. The chicken satay is great so is the lobster rice. Really nice decor. great place to take friends
Loved the food; our waiter was great. Pretty place!
Waitress was very helpful with suggestions without being pushy at all. Servers were present to remove empty plates whenever they became empty.
Food was amazing. Very delicious appetizers that wants us to come back and try them all! Main course was good. We had the sorbet for dessert. It had flavors that I never experienced.. They were outstanding and worth coming back simply for the dessert!
We had early reservations so the place had only 3 or 4 tables that were occupied. This may be why the service was superb.
Mediocre food and presentation considering setting and price
Food and atmosphere were great!
But, one of the waitresses told my friend she needs to find some to take care of her, if she wants to dine in there after she asked how to skip the line at the night club!
It is unacceptable!
Very fun. A little more ‘happening’ than we were expecting but great food and entertaining ambiance. The DJ played great music but it was really loud.
Great place. Excellent sushi
We had dinner with friends that we’ve known for over 25 years to celebrate our friendship! The food presentation and flavors were on point and service impeccable! We would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion
The ambiance of the place was unreal. Food was really good except for creme brûlée which wasn’t that good. Service needs improvement. Bus boys and servers work is not synchronized, rather erratic. They knew it was a bday party of our friend yet they served the entrees to everyone but made the bday girl wait for the main course to arrive. They brought coffe for guys but forgot to ask the ladies. We had to ask for wine refills and for extra silverware at one occasion. Considering we spent $100 each per plate ($600 total) it wasn’t a great value for the money spent.
Love Tao - have been many times
Came for a bday dinner. Got seated more then an hr after our reservation time. They did give us complimentary apps and free entry to the club which made up for the inconvience!
We waited 1.5hrs to be seated. There was zero communication or consideration from the host staff, nor any management to smooth things over. Our actual server was lovely, but we were starving by then and not in the best moods. Food came out almost too fast, and all at once (not coursed out) so jt was a rushed dinner experience for the long wait.
I’d rather fly to NYC and dine at Tao downtown there.
Reservation was for 8:30 and we weren’t sat until an hour after. While my group appreciated the complimentary dishes. We waited quite a while in between dishes.
went on a date for my husband’s 30th and everything was perfect and we got our food pretty quickly for how busy they were. would def recommend
Great atmosphere, very dramatic and club like. We shared multiple dishes and everything was delicious. The Seabass skewers are a must.
Zaya was awesome and patient with our service. Yeah ZAYA
One of my places to eat in Chicago, music,
Ambiance, decor and food makes it so good
Fabulous service ambiance off the hook and fab food.
Very modern and chick spot to visit! Amazing ambiance but unfortunately very poor service. Very hard to find a server, when you do wait is too long, no one refilling water, people did not seem happy.
Excellent service and incredible food, beautiful resturant!
As always, the service and the food are stellar!! We love the Budda!
My service and server was great! I forgot her name so sorry but it started with a k or c. I’m sure you can look up the table. But she was very attentive and over a sweet person. I would love for her to be my waitress every time.
Despite being busy, the staff treated us as VIPs. Great music, fantastic food !
Overall a great night. Beautiful room, good food, very lively atmosphere. My big problem was that my table wasn't ready and we had to wait over a half hour to be seated. We were not told that they were running behind when I first checked in, and I had to go up an ask what was going on. They did apologize, and comped us drinks... but it put a slight bummer on what should have been a great evening.
I requested a booth a month in advance for our 10 year anniversary. We were not seated in a booth instead they put us in their bench seating area. Our reservations was for 7:30 didn’t get seated till 8pm. The food was very good, lobster fried rice was a little salty. They did give us a scoop of ice cream with berries for free because it was our anniversary, which was nice.
Great experience overall- portion sizes are huge and I think we over ordered by quite a bit. Amazing environment and quality. Kind of pricey so more of a special occasion place.
Great restaurant, food is amazing. Only downside is the noise in the restaurant when it is busy, which is all the time. Love all the food we have tried, bao buns, tuna pringles, potstickers, pad Thai, etc...
Good food. Disappointed with poor seating and lack of recognizing special occasion.
We were greet by name. Also recieve free desert for a birthday
