A friend of mine has been in a 1.5-year relationship with a yelper 15 years older than him. So, true.

If you are Asian you will like this place. You will find that its like a 80 percent asian crowd. Its beautiful but the wait to get in is terrible EVEN FOR PROMOTERS i am use to skipping the line and MODELS SKIPPING the LINE but here none of that shit lol, i have had one night 27 models come out in which we had a table with bottles even amongst Grey Goose every single female wanted to ditch Hiro and go to Tenjune so that speaks volumes and that was my last night there. Drinks are watered down if you are a comp which means a free admission (you know if a promoter told you U will be in free) then once you get to the door and they try to give you a reduced ticket stand up for yourself and say " hold on I dont pay for clubs, I party at every club for free" I am sure they will throw you a ticket after that lol and ummmmm the security is terrible and GHETTO But beautiful place

Okay, Last Saturday was my first (and last) night at Hiro. Let's take it from the top. Me and 4 of my girls went to Hiro around 1am and there wasn't much of a line. Either way, we were getting a bottle, so we didn't have to wait. They ushered us to a table right away. Sounds good so far, right?

To start off, the music sucked. The DJ played great songs, but didn't play more than a verse or he would scratch all over it. I find it hard to enjoy a party where you go from Beyonce to Maroon 5 to Kanye West to friggin Taylor Swift in less than two minutes.

The crowd was blah. Mostly the bridge and tunnel folk (no offense) or the real villagey type (again, no offense). I was ready to go halfway through the bottle and won't be back.

this dude i was friends with in high school posted this page-long rant on facebook yesterday about how he's been passed over for YELP ELITE three years in a row. the rant detailed all the work he's done on yelp and all the reviews he's written and then he listed about all the stuff he's done to make his blog post come up high in google searches in hopes that yelp will find it and reconsider adding him to YELP ELITE ... wtf :(

Is it really shocking to people that when you open up the world for review you're gonna find lots of assholes willing to yell about their awful unsatisfying lives as viewed through the prism of discrete consumer experiences?

Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0

Local business owners say Yelp offers to hide negative customer reviews of their businesses on its web site ... for a price.
By Kathleen Richards
February 18, 2009

The phone calls came almost daily. It started to get creepy.

"Hi, this is Mike from Yelp," the voice would say. "You've had three hundred visitors to your site this month. You've had a really good response. But you have a few bad ones at the top. I could do something about those."

This wasn't your average sales pitch. At least, not the kind that John, an East Bay restaurateur, was used to. He was familiar with, the popular San Francisco-based web site in which any person can write a review about nearly any business. John's restaurant has more than one hundred reviews, and averages a healthy 3.5-star rating. But when John asked Mike what he could do about his bad reviews, he recalls the sales rep responding: "We can move them. Well, for $299 a month." John couldn't believe what the guy was offering. It seemed wrong.

In fact, something seemed shady about the state of his restaurant's negative reviews. "When you do get a call from Yelp, and you go to the site, it looks like they have been moved," John said. "You don't know if they happen to be at the top legitimately or if the rep moved them to the top. You don't even know if this is someone who legitimately doesn't like your restaurant. ... Almost all the time when they call you, the bad ones will be at the top."

Are they commies or have some agenda? Seriously, I don't know if that matters.

On the other hand, Yelp is consistently lame - don't need a newspaper to tell me that.

the yelp scene is mad creepy and "entitled"

memo from norv turner (omar little), Thursday, 19 February 2009 01:38 (eight years ago) Permalink

Wow, that's truly creepy and morally reprehensible on the part of Yelp. There's definitely reasonable grounds to assume Yelp creates bad reviews on its own, since it seems to think hiding bad reviews is a very profitable thing to do.

It'll be interesting to see where this goes.

Nah just the usual New Voice Media bullshit.

people who are vegetarian and go to a (delicious, cheap, family-run Peruvian-style) chicken place and neg-review it for not catering to their diets are scumbags

a friend of mine was talking about how one of her friends turned into a hardcore yelp addict and just hangs out with other yelp people now. it does sound a little bit like a cult.

a couple of the yelp reviews for the place i work are the equivalent of someone complaining about not being able to order sushi at an italian restaurant

If Yelp is indeed asking for money to erase negative reviews, and Google "Do No Evil" is partnered with Yelp, and the allegations prove to be true, will Google in turn yank their partnership with Yelp?

System Jr. (Mackro Mackro), Saturday, 21 February 2009 21:15 (eight years ago) Permalink

Is Yelp actually erasing negative reviews? I kinda skimmed all the links, but it seemed more like Yelp is selling good review placement, something that Google most certainly does.

----> (libcrypt), Saturday, 21 February 2009 21:19 (eight years ago) Permalink

google does not sell search result placement.
