The Maia complex is impressive, highly styled bistro, restaurant, cafe and market spaces. The market sells many outstanding products made on the premises, like the various organic breads, the home cured meats and fish, and produce from the best farms around Philadelphia. The menu of both the restaurant and the bistro reflect the owners commitment to local, organic, sustainable sourcing but also the peripatetic culinary background of the Feury brothers, Patrick and Terence. Prices are moderate given the quality of the ingredients, staff and service are most accommodating. An important new venue for food lovers and restaurant goers in the Philly area.

Eh...We visited Maia in June and chose the upscale seafood restaurant upstairs. It was really just not very good. The food was bland and the lobster tortellini even smelled a little fishy. The entrees
were presented well (pretty) but unimaginative - no sauces - just fish. Overall it was a disappointment. We may still try the bistro when we get up the nerve.

First & Last visit:
1.) Water $2.50 (cashier asks, "Is that and OK price b/c we dont have a price for bottled water yet")
2.) Fruit cup $5.75!!!(The size of a dixie cup)
3.) Cherry Pastry $1.75 (the size of a silver dollar)
4.) Cashier took about 5 minutes to give me my receipt to sign
** After I was done eating I was still STARVING...Their "breakfast" items were as small as chicken feed and cost a boat load **
Wont step foot in that place again!

I hate to say this but the food at Maia was AWFUL!!! Our first experience was probably our last. To start the French Onion soup was just not right. The goat cheese that was part of the cheese mixture on the soup did not work. The consistency of goat cheese when melted does not mix well with the other cheeses for French Onion soup. Instead of having a firm stringy texture the cheese turned into a foamy mess. It almost felt like expired cottage cheese on on the palate, and the broth was extremely bland. The only thing I can imagine having less flavor than the Herb crusted seared tuna is a piece of cardboard. The lobster risotto tasted like someone dumped a box of Uncle Bens instant rice in a bowl and threw two pieces of rubbery, flavorless lobster on the top. By the way i could only attempt to eat one of the pieces of lobster because the second piece had a HUGH piece of cartilage left in the middle of the meat from the claw. I was really looking forward to another good place to eat by home, so I don't always have to drive into the city, but other than the decor of Maia I was extremely dissapointed!!!

I picked up a pre-made chicken salad sandwich and it wasn't very good. Some of the pieces of chicken were rubbery and it had a funny taste. I've also gotten a chocolate croissant and a biscotti....both very good. And I do enjoy the bar atmosphere and the bartender was very knowledgeable about each beer. In short, I'll stick with the pastries and beer!
