Rating System

Ratings should reflect a reviewer’s reaction to menu, atmosphere and service. Cost should also be taken into consideration. Have a sense of what a star or other rating symbol mean. Here are some definitions to consider:

  • 5 Star *****: (Extraordinary) Transcendent. A one-of-a-kind, world-class experience.
  • 4 Star ****: (Excellent) Superior. Memorable, high-quality menus frequently accompanied by exciting environs and/or savvy service.
  • 3 Star ***: (Good) Solid places that beckon with generally appealing cooking.
  • 2 Star **: (Fair) Just OK. A place not worth rushing back to. But, it might have something worth recommending: A view, a single dish, friendly service, lively scene.
  • 1 Star *: (Poor) Below-average restaurants.Although most readers have a sense of what the stars mean, every review should run with a box explaining the ratings.

Not Yet Rated?

  • If a restaurant has Not Yet Been Rated this means no-one has written a review on it.
