    The bar was still opening at 12pm when we sat down. Drinks took a little longer than usual and our service was consistent at first but soon went down hill when her friends arrived at the restaurant and sat at their table while working. My friends Invisalign was thrown away and when we called the restaurant the host said “it’s probably thrown away” not even a “let me go double check with your server or previous napkins” nobody wanted to help. We told our server to split the bill, she comes back with one bill and my friend pays. She apologized and said she will tell us the exact amount, she didn’t - she just ball parked from the total amount. There’s no communication between servers because two mimosas came to our table and only ordered 1. Servers aren’t as friendly unfortunately, there was no sense of excitement and not interested in picking up conversation. Seems like the servers and manager only pay attention to inviting their friends to the restaurant and taking a seat with them rather than ensuring new customers have a great experience and would come again.

    During the day I had one experience at Karma Lounge - it was very calm and relaxing, nice soulful music played by Dj, not too busy. But evening gives Karma Lounge totally different vibe. It’s buzzing, lively, lots of people come to party, Dj makes it all feel like a Big Fiesta :)) Thanks for a chance to experience this duality ☺️

    A nice Lounge Bar, but 2 things should change: 1. Consider restricting kids in the evenings to maintain the lounge ambiance and avoid a family restaurant feel. 2. Turn off the TVs in the evenings to enhance the lounge vibe; the brightness clashes with the desired atmosphere, making the place feel like an Applebee's.

    Service was poor. Hardly anyone came in to check on us and take our order. I decided to walk out after one drink and the server was visibly annoyed. Never expected such a poor service from a high end establishment. Had to walk out and go to keg to get some quality service.

    This was a horrible experience. We waited forever for our food, every meal came out cold, the server didn't even offer to bring us hot food, but did take it off the bill. What food was eaten was not good at all, and the service was not at all on point. We all left hungry.

    I walked in the front door and was greeted by two amazing and friendly servers. The whole stay / drinks and food was top shelf and on point. Service was simple excellent and natural; everyone went out of their way to make us feel super welcome and attended. We were at home in this very cool space. Food was delicious. Espresso martini really delicious too. Ohhh — and the couch we sat on was really comfortable and private at the same time. Highly recommended!

    Gorgeous setting! Service was terrible! My husband and I ordered steak & eggs medium rare and came out medium (with absolutely 0 red) never was checked in on to send back. Toast fell on the ground on by the server and then waited 15 (yes for toast) only for it to be cold. We were a table of 8 and there was only 1 other table of guests the entire 2 hours???????

    This is a wonderful place with excellent service. The food is good, although the pricing could be more reasonable. I highly recommend this place for a romantic date. However, I'd like to note that while we visited for brunch, I wouldn't specifically recommend it for that meal.

    My friend and I had a wonderful dinner at Karma Lounge - the ambience was lively (a bit loud, but the DJ was great) and the food was very good. Our serve Liola (please excuse me if I got that wrong!) was very helpful and gracious, and her food recommendations were excellent.

    Went there with a group for a Mother’s Day brunch. It was a bit odd that the restaurant part was closed, so people were having brunch in the lounge - not that comfortable for dining; more for drinks and appies. Service was slow, but not excruciatingly so. Food was generally good and reasonably priced for a high-end hotel restaurant. Wouldn’t go back to dine, but perhaps would for drinks.

    The restaurant was pretty much empty, no body greeted us.. we had to walk to a server to get assistance and our server was a bit too full of her self and not very greeting, kinda looked like she was annoyed to serve us. By the end of our meal we were waiting so long for her to ask for our bills, when we looked around to spot her she was seating at a table with some "guest's" and never cared to look around to see if we needing something. After a couple of minutes I stood up and went to the nearest server and asked for our bill, this girl was super nice and brought our bill right away. Once leaving, our first server was still talking to those "guest's" and didnt even care to look at us when passing by her. I am surprised by this attitude as first, we are staying at the Hotel and everyone has been amazing and second... its feels incredibly uncomfortable to be treated like that specially when you are visiting from out of town and excited for the day ahead. The food was good, but based on that one server.. I question if I would be back or not.

    My partner and I had a lovely stay, thanks to Saksham Saini amazing service throughout the booking and accommodating to our needs during our stay. There was a miscommunication with a reservation for the lounge and Saksham very promptly addressed it with the lounge's manager Vanessa, who made sure we had a table and great time, so we would also like to recognize Vanessa's amazing client service. Our server (unfortunately I don't recall the name) was also amazing. Over all we had a lovely time, thank you Paradox team, you have surpassed our expectations! Best Regards, Nara and Matheus

    came for my bday:) server was nice but service was overall slow:( we messaged via opentable to see if we could bring a cake and was quoted at $30 which is fine! when we got there they told us it was $7 per slice but then $4 per slice (?). at the end they honoured it. the cake then took ~ 30min to be brought out and served. the food was okay but cold- and they forgot truffle fries for one of the orders- which was okay i guess because they brought it after it was a bit weird they didnt cut and serve the entire cake considering it was small and we were a party of 9. at the end, they asked us if we wanted the rest of if and then dropped it when they brought it....:( a memorable experience indeed.
