Yelp Food, Delivery & Services Positive Reviews
Yelp ServicesI have had the pleasure of using Yelp for a very longtime now, mostly for dining, and or restaurant suggestions or reviews prior to dining. I am now finding that I have started looking for help and suggestion or reviews for many other services as of late. One small challenge when trying to find this information, is there needs to be a specific heading for Odd, or Miscellaneous Services, unless I just missed it. I had no problem finding plumbing, or electricians, and this sort of thing, but spent sometime trying to find niche services, such as Solar removal, as opposed to Solar Installation. Again I suppose this is not exactly what Yelp originally specializes in, but I believe I’m not the only one checking your site for this sort of help, thanks sincerely Vinnie S
P.S. Job well done too ... thanks.Version: 12.79.0
Helpful but spam-yThis is my current go-to app for looking up reviews. Although since it’s pretty much all user-generated content, I take it with a grain of salt. Sometimes it’s a mixed bag, but usually the ratings align with my opinion. Between the reviews and user photos, it’s super helpful when deciding where to take my business.
There’s a few annoyances though. Got one, I get unsolicited spam notifications. Even though my app settings unchecked all notification options except the ones actually useful (waitlist updates, etc.), I still get spam notifications like “check out one of this week’s top restaurants.” Turning off notifications all together makes the app lose important functionality.
And I don’t love how much data Yelp uses to track me, especially the precise location tracking. I would expect Yelp would use precise location only to help users discover and find business locations in the app, but it seems it’s also used for tracking users. Unfortunately, if I turn off location services, Yelp makes the main page of the app lose a bunch of content. Too bad they don’t let users just select the city they live in to see recommendations..Version: 12.86.0
Not bad but...I used to love this app. It did everything you could want for searching for reviews for almost anything. Well they keep changing the algorithm and it's getting annoying. Now when u search by distance it's not automatically set to closest to farthest. When u put that in, it still gives u somewhat random distances. Then it doesn't load all the closest first so u have to keep looking a couple of times to get places that u know are close but didn't come up the first time. Also the search by rating is the same way. You search and the ratings aren't all in order from most to least. They still throw some 3 star reviews when your still in the midst of 5 star reviews. I swear they're giving people preferential treatment based on ad revenue or something. It's really annoying and wish they would go back to the way it was a long time ago..Version: 12.65.0
Must Have App!Funny, until I just had a pop-up, it never occurred to me to rate Yelp 🤣
Anyway, this has to be one of the most used apps on my phone! I travel a LOT and Yelp saves me from everything from last resort mediocre take-out food, to wardrobe malfunctions and “where the heck can I find an ‘x’ at this hour” emergencies.
Regardless of the number of reviews or stars a place has, I always read the reviews with one or two stars to see if the issues raised are really relevant, or just a posting by someone with unrealistic expectations, which is unfortunately frequent.
I’ve found some true gems in my travels, and validated the low ratings of a few I dared to try despite them, but that’s all part of the adventure, right?.Version: 12.87.0
Use it all the time but annoying sponsored addsI love this app but the sponsored adds are annoying especially when they aren’t part of your modification on search. Also annoying when you go to read reviews on a place and they actually have SPONSORED reviews or something for other restaurants as your scrolling for other restaurants. Not only are these adds irrelevant to your search, but it’s made me misread reviews for places thinking they were for the place I was looking up. HOWEVER! I will continue to use this app because despite the annoyances like, it’s still extremely useful overall and I’ve even used it to schedule appointments for hair and nails. But usually use for food. Still recommend it for looking up places..Version: 12.32.0
Good but could use improvementsStill my preferred app to check out restaurants.
A couple of suggestions.
I like that people can check in.
It would make more sense if there was an option to geographically base the check ins. Say for example you go a business trip and there was an awesome restaurant you visited but couldn't remember what the name was or where it was located. While you remembered to check in, it was roughly about 3 years ago. You have to spend several minutes scrolling and scrolling through your saved check ins to find the general timeframe of when you went there. More often than not, I will skip over it and it just leads to frustration.
Make check ins more useful. The same repetitive questions keep coming up. For attire, answering either casual or formal would generally suffice. I don't think people filter places specifically looking for a divvy or hipster venue. I think one of the more useful things you could add is average wait time and harness the database of loyal users. If you could ask if wait time is less than 5 min, less than 30 min, or greater than an hour for walk ins, that would help users prioritize their list of possible selections.
Hope these suggestions make it to the next update..Version: 12.28.0
Needs to prioritize reviews betterIt doesn't make sense that even for places with hundreds of reviews, the app lists reviews in random order... You might see a six month old review on top, followed by one from five years ago, then one from last week, etc. This makes it harder to tell if a place with overall good ratings has gone downhill recently, or if a place with overall bad ones has started improving. About the only way I can see this seemingly random order making sense is when a business suddenly gets a bunch of mostly good or bad reviews due to sketchy reasons - but that likely doesn't happen often.
One other comment... I know people complain about how businesses can pay to get listed first, but the app makes it obvious by showing the "ad" symbol etc. and Yelp has to make money somehow..Version: 12.3.0
Yelp's ReviewYelp is quite an amazing app. Many use it to rate first experiences of restaurants, gyms, clothing stores, you name it. Others rate what they have been going to their whole life. Either way, it is a great tool to use in order to understand whether a place you want to check out is good or not.
Another bonus to this app is the fact that some businesses are willing to give free product and bonuses just for liking them and leaving a review on yelp.
One thing that does confuse me is that a place for show four reviews actually have more than hundred. I'm guessing Yelp either has some algorithm to determine if a review is legitimate or yelp has certain preferences towards certain businesses. Who knows?.Version: 11.23.0
YELPI love Yelp! For a long time I had never even heard of Yelp. I was going to restaurants and writing reviews on the food I was getting every place I went. I have always considered myself a good judge of great food, mediocre food, and terrible food. I also believe in telling the truth, but without being downright rude. I then discovered Yelp and started reading reviews of places. I loved reading everyone’s opinion of all the different places. I don’t really remember how I got started writing for Yelp, but I’m glad I do because I love every minute of it. Meeting some of the Yelpers has been a treat too! Real people writing real opinions about food and businesses. Thank you YELP for allowing me to be a part of a wonderful organization..Version: 12.45.0
Very helpfulUse this app often to research anyplace unfamiliar, especially restaurants. I like to see real deal pictures from the customers and not just the dressed up ones they want you to see. I do find reviews can be skewed. Some people just can’t be pleased like complaining about a 30 minute wait at a restaurant on Friday night or a 2 star review because of something that was superficial and likely an honest mistake like putting the appetizer on the wrong check with a party of 3 couples.
When taking all this into account I find this app extremely helpful and informative. So far it has helped my family find several favorite local go to spots. We especially rely on it when traveling..Version: 12.3.0
Yelp Exposes Bad Business & ScammersI am glad this app exists. In today’s world, unfortunately, there are many businesses who take advantage of customers. Businesses can’t alter or change the bad things they have done on Yelp and holds them accountable! They are like the police of the businesses for consumerism! Totally support this type of honestly and accountability from consumers and others. For the business owners who get mad or disagree, maybe you should check yourself! It’s too bad they didn’t have an app for the businesses who treat employees bad for future prospects, who are looking for work. For the businesses who do their consumers right thumbs up to you ! Keep up the good fight! Keep the businesses honest!! Thumbs up to yelp!!.Version: 12.29.1
IncentivesLove this app! Use it often. Yelp has allowed me to further develop my critical and creative thinking! It has sparked the food critic in me. Which in turn helped me cipher between bias and unbiased opinion. A hat off to their development team, for keeping up with updates. Best features come in handy ...Such as the check in rewards for visits at participating venues. To the social status, and awards for rankings. One thing am not keen on. Is the image share. Within app—taking images, then resulting with yelp insignia all over the image one takes. What’s up with that? In a way that feature has discouraged me from taking images. No biggie. In all this app is fun to use and gives me incentives to continue using it! Thanks Yelp!.Version: 12.6.0
Live by Yelp!I've been a very frequent business traveler for over 20 years. In that time I've been my experience seeing the country grow more and more interesting. Yelp has made the travel more interesting and fulfilling than ever before. In fact I always find anything from gasoline to entertainment using Yelp.
I've learned the ins and outs of interpreting reviews and I cannot remember a poor experience after finding a place with Yelp.
It's become my right hand when it comes to nearly every commerce transaction in my life.
Yelp is a remarkable tool for finding excellent food, service, and entertainment.
I will always recommend it to friends and always use it at every opportunity..Version: 11.24.0
😍😍😍I don't know any other app that does the job like yelp, and there's a reason to that. Yelp is unique in that there's a whole community that shares their experiences about restaurants all over the world. The app is so easy to use and user-friendly. I couldn't have asked for more from an app, and I believe this app will change your life, at least in the area of knowing what restaurants and joints to check out. Although the ratings and reviews may be opinionated, you're better off trying a new restaurant with the affirmation of good reviews on yelp, than trying one on your own whim (from experience). So if you haven't tried yelp, which is highly unlikely, then go ahead and give it a shot..Version: 11.23.0
La Foresta in KillingworthFour of us went out to La Foresta after a long drought of COVID. We were really looking forward to it but what a disappointment! Two out of four did not get what we thought we had ordered. I ordered one of the two specials which was shrimp with broccoli but when it arrived in a deep bowl, it was mostly pasta and everything was bland, no flavor! It looked and tasted like a boiled dish! I couldn’t eat it! The other person had salmon with “lobster mashed potatoes” but the potatoes did not have any lobster or taste of lobster. This person never complains about her food but she couldn’t eat the potatoes!! They were heavily flavored with red pepper. Everything was expensive for what we had!! Also, there were flies and a wasp buzzing around us all evening! We’ve always enjoyed La Foresta but this was so awful that I doubt we’ll be going back..Version: 12.88.0
Best App for Restaurant ReviewsYelp is very helpful in finding places to dine when you are traveling and in different areas so you don't end up in a "dive" restaurant or eating places that does not suit your taste. Stars are pretty reliable from personal experiences. Be careful on those with low ratings, its not as reliable than 200+ reviews. It's practical and easy to read. It provides tips and check in offers that we have used. They need to update and remove closed restaurants, maybe allow reviewer to put a closed notice. Need more reviews in European countries .
Overall I am very satisfied with Yelp and it is more reliable than other reviews online. We travel a lot so Yelp is so handy..Version: 12.4.0
My go to for out of town travelI love Yelp and so does my crew. We typically find ourselves out of town quite a bit between my son’s hockey games and my daughter’s horse shows plus vacations. Whenever we travel (at least over the last 3-5 years) we look for the non-touristy / local favorites and we turn to Yelp to do it. I have yet to have a bad experience at a place we have found with good reviews on Yelp. Unlike other sites it’s not about what pics you are posting - it’s about the actual establishment and how much folks like or dislike it. Based on the reviews you can tell who is generally grumpy and who is trying to steer their fellow man kind in good directions. I highly recommend Yelp!!!.Version: 12.76.0
Use it all the timeYelp rocks. I use it when I travel, when guests are in town, when it’s date night, just to see what’s new, etc. so I use it a lot. At least a few times a week most weeks, and sometimes multiple times a day. I find it's better than any of the other services like it by a mile. It’s outlasted nearly all the other restaurant review sites for a reason. It’s not perfect, like when I’m in a big city with a ton of options, lots of times I find there are one or two places missing from Yelp. Or if you’re in a small town you’ll find a highly rated place that really isn’t all that great. But that’s hardly Yelps fault. The app rocks. I love it and use it all the time..Version: 12.34.0
Customer service needs a little more aloha!Just called to try and place an order to support this place. Not always on this side of the island so we were looking forward to the food here. Kalbi and hamburger steak was ono the last time we were here.
Too bad sistah was sassy and couldn’t handle some simple questions. When asking my daughter if she wanted a mini or regular, the person taking the order went “oh my gosh!” With a heavy sigh! I guess she didn’t realize she said it out loud or something, but it wasn’t like she was trying to hide it either.
Asked if there was someone else to speak to to take my order. She replied there was none. So I told her I’d call back. I’m hoping to get someone with some aloha. I hope no one else has to deal with this kind of customer service from here today. Keep the aloha alive!.Version: 12.75.0
It Takes a VillageWe have traveled all over the world, and thanks to Yelp, our experiences are getting better and better. The Yelp community has some terrific people who provide honest reviews. Because of this, we have not had a bad meal (while traveling) for 2-3 years! In fact, my daughter’s dance group always asks where we are going to eat because Yelp has been so wonderful about helping me find hidden gems in strange cities. The Yelp community has also provided us with some new experiences - reviewing restaurants and shops in areas we would not have ventured on our own. Thank you all for helping me save time and money, and for helping me to provide unique experiences for my kids..Version: 12.30.1
So much fun!I adore learning about new as well as old local, especially small independent business'. And this is just the place for doing so. Like many I have always taken pictures of my good food. So I continue to go through all my digital photo files finding photos and writting reviews. Some say they 'hide' the unfavorable reviews. But I only want to know of the good anyway. We all have a bad experience from time to time. I just read a bad review of Trader Joe's in Spokane. It was months old and hadn't been hidden? Anyway it is a great way to be in the know and is really fun to participate. Be a foodie, pretend to be a critic, post fun photos and even make friends who enjoy similar finds. So far oh so good..Version: 12.26.0
HonestyThat’s what you get when you read a yelp review. No one gets paid to write a review unlike an advertisement.
Remember how it used to be? You’d go to a place, the service, the products or the food were terrible, and you let your friends know about it. The owners never got any feedback generally and you just never went back. Yelp gives consumers a voice and owners constructive knowledge of how to improve. It’s no wonder that reviews can either boost or detract from Sales. It gives power to the consumer. Let’s face it, Honolulu is not cheap. And if you’re going to pay that much for something, you have the right to have something that is delicious, experience good service and a good product..Version: 11.26.0
Excellent service I was givenI was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the excellent service I got from a gentleman named Sam who went out of his way to not only install my brake light that went out but he found a couple other things wrong and he fixed my tail lights my reverse lights and he went turn signals and he went out of his way to be exceptionally helpful and I would highly recommend that when anyone comes here they ask for him or Drew the store manager..
The store manager Drew told or asked requested Sam to come out and help me and he selected Sam specifically because he knows that he is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and honest and I can’t express how wonderful he was in helping my car...Version: 12.86.0

Superior service!!Carl Tang was so helpful in working out the logistics of storage rental and everything else we needed guidance on. He was a dream to work with, from finding us the appropriate unit to being flexible when all our plans were interrupted by Covid. Aside from being super helpful, he was super careful (during Covid) with the smallest details and super knowledgeable of international shipping guidelines. He asked a tonne of questions for the sake of helping us get it right and i couldn’t be more thankful to have had him working with me during a very stressful time. Aside from Carl, the space itself is clean, secure and has good operating hours. It’s our second experience with BlueBird and i have no complaints but growing praise for the staff i’ve encountered.
