People on Yelp: Why do you all suck? - Page 10

We so badly wanted to enjoy this restaurant but it was tough since we had experienced some of the best sushi in the world from Sukiyabashi Jiro in Japan. We were lucky enough to have a high palate that we had to knock quite a few stars on this review. You know the nigiri is not comparable to sushi master Jiro Ono when chef Hiro-san said he cried after he ate at Jiro's.

Yeah, they have started doing this I think...but it relies on other yelp users realizing that the review sucks...which doesn't happen

And still my friends always wonder why I hate yelp.

I feel like it is useful for things that don't have critical coverage. Nobody in the newspaper is reviewing the local barber shops or hardware stores and locksmiths.

If I need something like that, yelp is far better than grabbing a random place out of the yellow pages. For a restaurant, I'd rather read some reviews from practiced critics who know how to write a review for a wide audience. They know what to look for and generally aren't going to leave a poor review because of something they personally dislike but that they know many other people are fond of.

was this review useful funny or cool.

 

funny or cool shouldn't even be an option, and there' no useless option..

Looking up the address of Shake Shack on Long Island, found this. One of the dumber reviews I've ever read, and I've read some pretty terrible reviews.

San Francisco seemed to LOVE yelp. Restaurants had their star count on windows, etc.


NYC doesn't seem to give a shit. Rightfully so.

Didn't even eat at the restaurant > Leaves one star Yelp review

Makes sense

The good reviews are often worse than the bad ones.

"I gave this place 5 stars because it's right around the corner from my house!"


I love yelp.

What's Yelp? Some internet search thing that doesn't really work properly?

Upper Crust Pizzeria - CLOSED
Category: Pizza
Neighborhood: Harvard Square
1.0 star rating 2/2/2011
i DID love their pizza but have stopped patronizing them since their recent HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION. below are some of the issues, there is a link to the entire article below.

Lena's it is........

One of the plaintiffs, Valdeir Pereira Pinto, started earning $455 for working 80 hours a week, according to copies of his paychecks and timecards submitted as part of the lawsuit. That is about $5.70 an hour, or $2.30 below minimum wage. Pinto said Upper Crust deducted more than $8,000 over several months -- the full overtime payment he received -- and then fired him.

an investigation last year and ordered Upper Crust to pay nearly $350,000 to about 120 employees for uncompensated overtime. after this was issued management pressured workers not to take the settlement.
