  • We wouldn't normally start with dessert, but this can't wait. It's strawberry/orange blossom creme topped with honey-milk powder and cotton candy. It's beautiful...and it's topped with cotton candy.
  • Wear your big boy shoes; 9 out of 10 girls here are over 6 ft tall.
  • Was a fan of midtown location but downtown trumps it in ambience, decor and somehow palate. Sea bass skewers - amazing. Black cod- amazing. Dessert- amazing. Get the point?!!! Go!
  • Beautiful restaurant. Good service.
  • Amazing space and design, I've had better Chinese in Hakkasan to compare with similar-type restaurants. Lobster wontons are good, as is the tofu and mushroom salad. Cocktail wise - Ruby Red Dragon
  • Get the Ruby red dragon cocktail thing.. its delish.
  • New downtown hot spot located in Meatpacking. Wear your Varvatos jacket, don't leave the Prada bag at home.
  • Recs: lobster wontons, mango chili martini, fortune cookie dessert. Make sure you have spare $ to tip the bathroom attendant waiting by the sinks. Staff well-trained and courteous. Beautiful interior.
  • Beautiful venue! A MUST!!!
  • Food: worst I've EVER had. Atmosphere: Best I've ever had.
  • Finance guys/yuppie central. The level of pretentiousness is mind blowing.
  • Menu includes dim sum, sushi, yakitori, and shareable small and large plates. But the real draw here is the design. The 22,000 square foot space has statues, pillows, fountains, giant vases, & murals.
  • The 26 armed statue makes an incredible latte. Make sure ask for one after ur meal. Extremely lucky patrons may even get a neck massage and yes, it does groups.
  • Amazing redesign. Destined to be the hottest lounge in Manhattan.
  • Tao Downtown takes 11:45 p.m reservations on weeknights where you can order some rock shrimp lettuce cups and ask he waiter what pairs best with a Red Bull at the bar.
  • dope place. lots of hot girls. doormen is selective with who's coming in
  • Obviously the whole menu is great but order some temakis. Great value.
  • Amazing Fancy restaurant for party !!
  • So salty. Nothing special and overpriced Ambiance is nice
  • Recomendable! Ambiente perfecto, lugar excelente, msica, el mejor sushi, cocteles y sin duda alguna aplica para todo tipo de ocasin
