I really used to swear by Citysearch but during my latest venture in trying to find a decent restaurant to dine at for my birthday I wasn't really happy with their results. Admittedly, Joel also kept yelling at me to try Yelp - so I did and I can't believe it took me so long to become a believer.
Yelp is great. Yelp is for the people and tells you what the people want. It is still early days for the site so you might have to add a favorite restaurant to review but that's what it's all about. It is great to hear reviews from real people...and then prove them wrong or right after trying a place for yourself.
Now if you read my previous post about Tilth Restaurant then you will know that I just had to write a review on Yelp. Unfortunately, no one had even entered the restaurant into the data base yet - but that didn't stop me as Yelp also wants you to tell them if they have missed something. So I entered the details and got to writing. This is what I had to say for my first attempt at a review:
