100 Top Restaurant Review Sites For Restaurateurs

by Mark

To Further Add To Your Marketing Workload, I Have Compiled A List Of The Top Restaurant Review Sites. For Many Of My Colleagues and Clients, they realize that mobile marketing is going to be huge for restaurants.

If someone has never been to your establishment and finds you in a local search on their mobile phone, reviews from other customers will factor into their decision of where to dine.

Here is a list of restaurant review sites in alphabetical order (With links).  It is my gift to you.

This is not the complete list.  In your local search area there are many more.  You will have to do your own research or hire someone to find the opportunities and set up your online presence.

Please don’t leave it to fate.  Don’t sit and wait for the remarks to build willy-nilly.  Make the invitation and give them great choices to give feedback.

A year from now there will be two restaurants online side by side.   One has dozens of reviews and the other has a few.  The first took action and the other waits.  A hungry person will be viewing the reviews on their mobile device.  They will be thinking:  “Which to choose?”.  Which will they respond to?  Which is yours?
