Restaurant Reviews

The Web has made finding restaurant reviews more efficient than ever. You'll discover restaurants you didn't know existed, and can learn about all of the places you've been wanting to try.

Insights for Restaurant Reviews

  • User-generated content (in other words, the non-professional opinions of diners as opposed to paid critics) is a great source of restaurant recommendations. We list a number of sites that offer this service.
  • Don't miss out on a good deal. Restaurants provide special promotions and many feature "special events/promotions" on their Web sites or have an e-mail list for special offers. On some restaurant review sites, you can search to find price-saving options such as happy hours or two-for-one entrées.
  • Want to pick your entree before you leave home? MenuPix has scanned menus from restaurants in major cities around the United States.
