Yelp is OK, but Consumer Reports is more scholarly.

has anyone ever accused ss of being pedantic

Catsupppppppppppppp dude 茄蕃, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 06:53 (twelve years ago) link

only times he gets sort of pedantic is when discussing japanese food and denim pants at which point most of the people who would accuse him of being pedantic TLDR and move on?

like when nabisco talks about the huxtables or gabbneb is discussing road trip tour routes across america maybe

It's not the yelping itself, it's the method of yelping

People who one-star yelp about something just because they hate the people that frequent there or just think the retail idea is like bogus man are the lowest on the scumpole.

they might as well fuck off to that new site where people talk shit about their neighbors. (not ilx)

Is Yelp outside of SF now?

Alex in SF, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 17:08 (twelve years ago) link

You know what's annoying? Having people at a business plead with you to say something nice on yelp. "But that would require me to actually log in there!"

Anyway there are a lot of jerks on Yelp in SF.

Yelp has been in Chicago for a while now, but it's only within the last few months that it routinely shows up among the top 5 Google results of any restaurant or retail establishment.

I find the nyc restaurant/bar reviews useful but you have to filter out all the people who give one-star write-ups to williamsburg bars and restaurants that just say "full of hipsters!!#%@$!"

even with all that type of junk there seems to be more "real people" honest reviews and less shills than on places like citysearch

Honey 1 BBQ is like the only legit north side barbecue spot and the reviews of it on yelp are infuriating

This place totally sucks. I have eatten BBQ Everywhere in this country and this is seriously as bad as Orlando FL suburb mall BBQ.

I went with a friend, who granted is a chef. We both ordered pulled-pork sandwiches. We were the only people in this entire place and it took at least 35 minutes to get our food. A child, seriously like 12 years old brought it out. Why is my pulled pork wrapped with fries on top in a piece of wax paper? Why is it about 5 inches wide? For that matter, why is it just cooked pork, with a squirt of BBQ sauce on top?

Gross.

These two TINY sandwiches and soda cost almost 25 bucks?!?

Do yourself a favor and walk seriously, 3 blocks down to Fat Willy's which is awesome. Or even head or to Calvin's a few blocks over on Armitage.

Liked this review of a local Asian market. Was originally structuring this post around a review that mentioned a sketchy exterior, a fishy smell, and products in a foreign language (shocker!), but then read the review above and wanted to recognize an anti-scumbag. Informative, pleasant, well-written, and thorough.

Unlike a lot of things, personally, the 1 in 10 Yelpers who write a decent review successfully offset the other 9 who fixate on some personal slight or bias.

Stopped by this restaurant yesterday when I was in BK. I tried to get in a few years back but it was crowded, late and I didn't have a reservation so I thought I would try again.
It was packed again; which is good sign that the food and drinks are still good.
But I'm sorry to say...I didn't get to try it.
We waited at the hostess stand for about 5 mins. The hostess only came in our direction when a gentleman come up behind us. Not sure if he worked there or not. But he walked passed us.
He then turned and said she is seating you.
Instead of the hostess using her big girl words like, "hello, right this way, Table for 2" she waved her hand in a gesture to follow her. Which I found to be very rude and uninviting. There were two tables in the front, one in the window the other near the bar. Instead she wanted to place us in the back in a crowded area squeezed in between to couples.
I asked the gentleman for another table, like perhaps the one in the window, he relayed the message to her. She looked confused and annoyed that I was asking if the other table was available. Mind you in directly in front of her.
If getting a table was going to be this bad I didn't want to see what else was in store.
We left...

i don't know what the best thread for this would be, but i was reading about local sausagemakers and i ran across a gem of a review - on Google, not Yelp. it was by someone who knows enough about writing to put in a first sentence that grabs the reader, in this case:

"As I’m picking bullet fragments out of my teeth, not for the first time, from the deer sausage I didn’t want, I thought I would post this review."

that's exceptionally good writing for an internet review of a local german butcher, and i appreciate it.

I searched google today for bars that are open in the morning (take this as the given, don't judge me)

First two results were from yelp, with phrases that would seem to match my query exactly.

But, because I wasn't born yesterday, I knew not to even click those links, because I'd get a long list of bars that in fact do not have morning hours. I'm sure you know what I mean.

How is this allowed to happen? It'd be one thing if google owned yelp

"Typical, in many ways, of a mainstream hotel restaurant. Caramelized apple salad had apples which were not caramelized, but sautéed. Sweet potato fried were the best I think I've ever had, but they were finished with so much salt I had to scrape off each one before eating. The menu looks promising, but the chef is unskilled, or lazy. A friendly dining room manager exercised no quality control of food coming out of the kitchen. The bartender who served me was attentive, but presented as troubled, or sad."
