been highly recommended by
other reviewers, business associates or friends — are

Most of the reviewed restaurants are rated Three and Four Stars — we tend not to publish reviews
of poor dining experiences...we prefer to focus on the positive ones. We find out about Restaurants through word-of-mouth, friends, our readers, web sites, clients, newspapers, magazines, and radio shows. Our reviews are unsolicited and free from the influence of advertising.
