Karma is a self-described "baseball headquarters,” a sports bar that serves as a meeting spot for fans of both the Chicago Cubs and White Sox. Like any self-respecting sports bar, this restaurant is packed wall to wall with massive HDTVs so guests can catch the action from any seat in the house. Karma has lined its walls with baseball paraphernalia from both teams, including signed jerseys, balls and bats.
Karma's menu can best be described as bar food done right. Diners can start with the signature Karma quesadillas filled with cheddar, Monterey jack, pico de gallo, sour cream and a choice of marinated steak or chicken. Entrees take inspiration from all over the globe. Fish and chips is a popular entree borrowed from England, while Karma puts its spin on an Asian classic with the orange chicken stir-fry with sugar snap peas, bell peppers, onions, carrots and scallion rice.
Our server was very knowledgable and helpful with the menu and the preparation of food. Everyone enjoyed their food. The portions are large so was able to enjoy the left overs at home.
The atmosphere is lovely. We enjoy the tranquility of the place and the ability to have a conversation with friend with out yelling.
Go, you will enjoy yourself.
Never expected that christmas day late lunch would be so inspiring and delightful. The reviews were mixed so I didn't have high expectations, however the food, service, ambiance, location and atmosphere was exceptional. I really loved it and recommend this restaurant to anyone! Couldn't be happier! Yum. Ps the firecracker shrimp and fried rice were the best than anything ever eaten at similar cuisine. The presentation of the food on each plate was a mastepiece! Wow!
Food and service was great! We both enjoyed it and a great experience.
Expected more, good food but not as "artistic" as I was less to believe by website.
Karma's chef delivers beyond expectations. We cannot wait to go back as we look for chefs that care about where food is sourced, in addition to using real food ingredients (no cheap fake food please). The plating was beautiful and the Asian fusion flavor combinations were simply mouth watering. Lobster mashed potatoes! Scallops seared to perfection! Gorgeous vegetables! Dessert is not to be missed either. The decor feels like a swanky downtown restaurant, five stars for YOU Karma!
Food not good. There was only one other table at 630pm on a Friday night...that says it all.
Food was average little too sweet.
The service was great .
Clean quiet ambience there were only two tables occupied including my table.
Went to Karma with a family to celebrate a birthday. The decor was really well-done, but the room is large and cavernous and the music almost non-existent, which made the emptiness of a Sunday night seem somehow awkward and echo-y. We were slightly disappointed in the limited menu, but our appetizers were delicious. They were out of one of the meals we ordered, so that led to some disappointment. The meals were overall satisfying and well done, although not really anything to rave about, but they came out piping hot which is always appreciated. The quinoa veggie burger was good, but weirdly lacking in any kind of interesting toppings that it screamed for. Dessert was on the house in honor of the birthday, which was a nice touch. Service was excellent.
Obviously unable to serve a party of 20+, I don't even know why they accepted our reservations. We had one waitress and, besides our party of 23 people, she had like 4 more tables. We got our food 2.5 hours later. Staff is unprofessional - we literally had one guy throw plates on our table because he got upset with people not sitting down when he was serving... Yeah, food's okay. Never again!
Since Karma is attached to a hotel, we hesitated to try it. A definite mistake. It is lovely and the food is amazing. The atmosphere is peaceful and soothing with an artistic little pool in the center of the room. We tried the Ahi Tuna and Cantonese Crepes to start followed by the Normandy Chicken and the Truffled Scallop Scampi. Everything was original and excellent. There were also vegetarian options. This is definitely someplace we will recommend to our friends.
