Tao is a staple in NYC! It is one of those places everyone dines and just constantly talks about, to the point I feel like I have no choice but to give it 2 Thumbs Up regardless of what I think. I mean lets be realistic if everyone loves it and I say it is OK, either there is something wrong them or me. In any case, Tao came very close to my expectations. Be warned getting a table here can be troublesome. DO NOT: show up late, show up without your whole group, go and try to get a seat last minute. Make reservations it is worth it. For our meal with started off with Satay of Chilean Sea Bass, Jumbo Shrimp Tempura, a Crap cake and couple rolls of sushi. Everything lived up to the Tao hype especially the Satay, which was the best part of the meal as far as I am concerned. When it came to the main entree, I feel I made a mistake. I went for the Wasabi Crusted Filet Mignon, someone at the table recommended the Miso Glazed Sea Bass, and I should have listened to her others ordered it and loved it. The Filet was good, but nothing too special, I would probably not order it next time. Finally for dessert, everyone I was with decided to order the molten chocolate cake, I had to be different yet again and get the chocolate raspberry wontons. This is a decision I was very happy with. Tao was a great experience, and does certainly support the hype around it, I just say stay away from their Filet and go for their Seafood or even better Kobe!
