Disappointed! We were very excited to eat at The hero of Maida after reading the Infatuation review. However service was incredibly slow, we had to ask several times for someone to come and eventually take our order and the food took an extraordinary amount of time to come. There was only full fat or soy milk as options, difficult for many at the table, and to top it off one of the portions of chips came with a thick curly black hair cooked in. Such a shame.

Hello, the food was delicious, the dining room is lovely and the atmosphere is nice but we waited for our main course for almost 45mn, did not get any update or explanation for the delay and our waiter clearly avoided meeting our eyes or answering our signals ; that’s disappointing

Really great place for a Sunday roast/ great for families and groups. We all had variations of the roast/ beef and the chicken. All delicious and we asked for extra sauce and potatoes. They’ve got a great wine selection and the perfect bloody mary’s. It got very busy at peak times but the staff always tried to serve us as fast as possible. Charming neighborhood addition.

Superb dining experience with family & friends! The food is excellent, good wine list, manager and staff were fabulous, friendly yet professional, engaged and knowledgeable. Love the story of the restoration of the building and the name.

Wrong starter brought. Long delay getting main course, which was barely warm. Couldn’t reject it as my wife’s course was okay: further delay in sorting out my food would have upset her enjoyment of her meal. Very unsatisfactory.

Has so much potential - beautiful space and great food, but service is really bad, and for some reason they make smoothies in the bar which is incredibly noisy. Would love to return once the service gets better.
