Insights for Restaurant Reviews
- If you’re looking for a particular restaurant, try entering its name as well as your city into a search engine. There are a number of duplicate restaurant names nationwide, so specifying your city can help you find the right restaurant.
- A restaurant's site is typically going to show you only positive information and reviews, so use independent restaurant review sites to find unbiased opinions.
- If you have a spectacular (or spectacularly disappointing) experience with a restaurant, post a review of your own on the restaurant review site of your choice. This is especially valuable if your experience was contrary to the opinions that you'd read about the restaurant.
