Facebook Now Provides Restaurant Reviews

Customers will now be able to compare their food standards to the professionals. Professional critics reviews of restaurants will now be featured alongside traditional “likes” and posts of friends and strangers on Facebook.

Facebook has become very useful in finding local restaurants and promoting them to customers with similar interests in food or who live nearby. The new update will be similar Yelp, Trip Advisor and Google in raising awareness of the quality of service and food.

For restaurants that rely on their high standards and good food, Facebook’s feature is a blessing. Those restaurants that do not provide good standards and pay to promote on Facebook’s News Feeds, a negative review could appear on their ads – not so good for business. Typically, businesses want control over what types of reviews appear on their ads, so this might cause some controversy.


For a long time, Facebook has allowed normal people to rate restaurants and other businesses out of five, along with leaving a short or long review of their experience. It’s expected that food critics, along side customers, reviews will make a big dent in the standards of restaurants.

The food critic’s update comes two weeks after Facebook started hosting news articles on its servers. Facebook has begun rolling out articles of critics’ reviews on selected restaurant pages in the United States.

Facebook is partnering with Bon Appetit, Conde Nast Traveler, Eater, New York Magazine, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

"Since reviews are such an important part of helping people make informed decisions about what to do locally, we're excited to be incorporating a new way for people to use Facebook to find the best real-world experiences," says Facebook spokeswoman.
