I've eaten at Tao twice. The first time we went on a Wednesday night and still had to wait 45 minutes AFTER our reservation time. For an app I had a bowl of edamame which was warm, salty and bottomless, just the way I like it. The sushi was AWESOME and well worth the wait. I ordered the yellowtail maki with crispy onions & the smoked salmon maki. The yellowtail with crispy onions might just be the best sushi roll I've ever tasted. The drinks..? Well I had the cucumber martini was ICKY and I had one sip before I set it aside for the evening. The second time I dined here I came for my birthday. Even though it was a Saturday, I was still upset that they made me wait an hour past my reservation time (the manager DID send over glasses of complimentary champagne to 'make up' for it). I ordered the same maki rolls this time-- yet they were not as good. The crispy onions on the yellowtail roll were cold (cold fried food=eww) and the salmon didn't taste as fresh as I had remembered. For dessert I ordered the large fortune cookie filled with mousse which was delish-- but between the long wait times & the inconsistency of food it was not enough to make me come back.

I went to a family member's party at this venue. It was awesome!! I loved the decor and the sexy VIP areas. The club is intimate, which i liked because you didn't feel swallowed by a huge space. The DJ was DJ S&S, but he was brought in for this party and doesn't regularly play there, so I can't comment on the regular music at this venue. The girls swinging from the fabric hanging from the ceiling was sexy and awesome. The security was friendly and well organized. We had a great time at this great venue. One note: Hiro get rid of the tables and chairs in the middle of the dance floor, it is kind of awkward.
