I'm just about to demand that City Search and Yelp remove my restaurant from they're web pages. Not because I have a bad rating, we have 4 1/2 stars on one and 4 stars on the other, but because of the quality of writing. I really believe that restaurant critiquing should be left to those who KNOW WHAT THE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
I know, I'm complaining about free press, (unless you are actually paying them) -but if I have to read another review that says "They don't even have spaghetti and meat balls, I thought this was an Italian place" I think I might send my cleaver through my computer monitor. Even the good reviews are vague and pointless. I just don't think people appreciate that with great power comes great responsibility. They think nothing of flaming your restaurant based totally on they're biased opinions, or maybe they found one of our waitress/waiters a little short due to the fact that they didn't have a reservation and pestered us until we squeezed them into a section that was that was already slammed, on a friday night at 8:30?!!??
Really!? Or how about the blatantly fake good reviews that bad restaurants get, reading them you can tell it's just they're family and friends.
Even though the good reviews far out way the bad, I just would rather due without these internet reviews,
Can't we just leave it to the Pros?
