Went to Paradou in a group of 7 and it was a complete disaster. Our server was a jerk right from the get-go and then proceeded to ignore our table for the rest of the night. One of the diners in our party finally got another waiter to help us and he was great, but the night was ruined. That paired with mediocre food and way overpriced wine...the pretty back patio doesn't make up for it.
I've noticed this a few times at other places too, but they tagged on a 20% tip....now, if I'm a jerk server and I know my 7-top is going to get the automatic 20% added to the tip, I wonder if I'd just do as little as I had to? Anyways, we didn't leave 20%. We left 15% which was more than they earned. avoid.
