Come for the food, stay for the service — in the hospitality game, never a truer word has been spoken. While the talented chefs set the menu, the service sets the scene for your meal, with staff putting their craft into motion day after day, night after night to deliver an unforgettable dining experience. From bartenders to maître d’s to wait staff, it’s time to celebrate the most outstanding service person. If there’s anyone you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.
Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of the American Express Local Dining Collection locations — a list of which can be found here.
Voting has now closed. The 2022 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 23rd May, 2022).
