Arriving at Tao is a bit underwhelming. You’re put into a crowded holding pen and given a buzzer to let you know when your table is ready. If you’ve ordered a drink, they won’t add that to table bill so you have to settle up...More

I usually ate there before 3:00 and it was still available. Lunchtime usually runs from 11:30 to 3:00. I'm not certain if the fixed price goes beyond that.
