lia schorr was rude, arrogant and has no manners. the spa look like a dental office and not the post "best manhatten spa" they claim to be. i got a hot stone massage without the hot stone. how ridiculous is that? if i pay for hot stones i want hot stone. the lady apoligized that the stones were not hot enough. but that is no excuse, she shouldnt have started in the first place. the facialist was decent but tried to convince me to go for more expensive facials or coerce me to go to a spa more often. then while i was on the chair covered in mask the manicurist comes in and puts a bowl on my stomach and proceed to do my nails. it was rushed and i didnt even get to pick my polish color. the two workers proceed to talk russian around me. when i left that place i vow never to come back. the owner demanded tips for her workers and told us exactly how much to give. unbelievable horrible service!

Rude reception, poor quality, non-relaxing experience

First, you have to get past a rude reception lady who is impatient. Upon going into a dimly lit room with your own facial chair, you'd thought for a minute that perhaps it'll be worth it despite what you've gone through at reception. Then come your facial masseuse/host who tries to sell you products/services throughout your whole massage, despite your firm polite refusal. The manicure and pedicure lady was better and let you enjoy the service in peace. Do not try to get makeup from them. They do not provide you with the service. They would send you up to their "class" where you'll get to be the guinea pig to get a makeup done by a student. It was so bad that I had to redo the makeup myself in the end for an event. Facial $90, manicure+pedicure $60. Facil+manicure+pedicure Package: $130.

Just Awful.

I can not begin to tell you how disappointed my friend and I were when we went to Lia Schorr for our "day of beauty". It was more like a day of rushed insults. Not only was I interrupted 3 times during my facial, (The lady kept going in and out and I could hear them chattering in the hallway.), but I was also coerced into buying products I did not want. The lady at the desk - who appeared to be in a daze - was very rude. I will NEVER go back here.

RUDEST OWNER EVER

I bought a package which seemed amazing, 5 treatments for $90. I called to schedule an appointment and the girl kept putting me on hold to try and schedule all these treatments in one day. She didn't have anything at all for one saturday and in addition they were closed on Sundays and were only open until 6 on Weekdays...what about the working people? So after going back and forth with her the owner, LIA got on the phone and was extremely rude and obnoxious yell at me and saying "we can only schedule one treatment a day you will have to come back 5 times." Are you kidding? what's the whole point of a package? She was horrendous, i will never ever give them business.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
