I went to Dao for dinner with friends & families in September. It has been a great experience. Service is impeccable and the food is really good. I have seen a side of Chinese cuisine I was not aware of, I must be honest! Missing the 5 star to me just because the menu is really long. I will go... More

A friend's recommendation, Dao serves some very tasty, carefully presented Chinese food; perhaps it could do with being a little more spicy in places, but everything we had was great. Service was efficient. The Illy coffee was also very good - a rarity in a Chinese restaurant, anywhere.

This was a great surprise. A good friend that travel regularly to China invited us for dinner. This is all the contrary of what you will expect from your typical Chinese restaurant, very clean and elegant . The food was excellent and the Chinese white wine made from Ribolla Gialla grapes a great surprise.

We ate here as guests of someone who frequents Dao often and receives special attention. All that one expects to go with such a situation was present including the general ambiance of the restaurant enhanced by our table in a semi-private nook. The service was attentive and careful. The food though was uneven. Vegetable dumplings served with hot chili oil... More

Great service, great food. Portions are smaller than what you normally expect so maybe they should specify that! The peking duck is served in two courses so don't be surprised at the mystery course after the pancakes.

My wife and I went to this restaurant with some friends of ours at the suggestion of one of them, and we do not regret it! DAO is an intelligent blend of Middle-Southern Chinese cuisine (both the chef and the maître d' are from Wēnzhōu, Zhèjiāng Province, and many dishes reflect that) and the ambience of a high-end Western European...
