  • Horrible for businesses


    By TaylorMarie09
    Yelp is horrible for businesses. We have had multiple clients leave legitimate good reviews. Yelp, however, marked all of them as “not recommended” and then left one negative and one positive view on our page. This gave us a much lower overall rating that isn’t accurate. When I called to ask why they do this and how we can make sure all of the reviews are showing they told me “that’s just how our algorithm works on the site and there is no way to change it.” I’m still unsure how Yelp determines which reviews are “recommended” and which are “not recommended.” There doesn’t seem to be a logic to it. He couldn’t explain that either. He just said that in order for the reviews to show up the people that posted them needed to use Yelp more. I’m sorry but I’m not going to call each client and tell them they need to use the Yelp app more so that their review shows up. It almost seems as if they are manipulating the system rather than providing accurate data. If one of our clients does want to leave us a review in the future, we will definitely direct them to Google or Facebook (not Yelp) so that their review actually counts for something. Disappointed.
  • Yelp is terrible for businesses


    By deeno1226
    Plain as the title, Yelp uses its platform to hold businesses hostage with bad reviews. It does nothing about people making fake accounts with fake names and posting several different bad reviews. Yelp will then contact businesses to make them pay to remove these ratings to raise their rating. This is a terrible app and a terrible service, use literally any other review service and it will be better. Never put a business out of your thoughts because some garbage influencer wasn’t given free food because they have 100 followers. That’s all yelp is, garbage people complaining and yelp not taking the time to actually curate their reviews and punish their user base for lying. Garbage. Also sad to see a lot of the one star reviews are for other businesses and not yelp. Seriously guys, how hard is it to use the App Store? Y’all are rating this terrible company yelp, and not your local dog groomer. It’s absolutely embarrassing that these people are allowed to voice their opinions when their not even giving them about the appropriate business.
  • Brand new harassment features!!!!!!


    By ;p;p;p;p;p;p
    I’ve been working in the restaurant business since 2004 and the relationship with yelp has always been a spotty one. Yelp has been basically legally blackmailing and extorting legit businesses for years. Dating a guy in the auto industry and he says the same Offering special support for places that pay extra money to bury bad reviews. I always thought yelp was untrustworthy specifically for that reason. Recently, Yelp decided to degrade one of the few seemingly fair options “ this place has been in the news recently and we’ve locked the page “ policy to an absolutely unfair report for racist behavior button. What this means is, anyone that has any beef with a business owner only has to hit a button to basically cancel said business owner. And it’s frozen for an unspecified amount of time No way for customers or owners to respond. I’m deleting yelp because I always thought of them of slightly corrupt business but useful because pictures. The recent ball hold move is unfair at the least and probably illegal at the most
  • Read privacy policy first, no web functions


    By Mishlz1
    I deleted this app after reading their privacy policy and using one of their functions that helps you get quotes from businesses. The app asks for a lot of your information like address and phone number, that they do not pass on to the businesses, so there is absolutely no reason they need that information other then they want it. Their privacy policy is horrible as well, they have no respect for anyone’s privacy. I always read the reviews they say are not recommended, the ones they claim do not meet their standards, whatever those are. These are usually the best and most honest reviews. I’ve been told by a lot of business owners that if they do not pay, their reviews are not always posted. Occasionally I use the version through the web browser, that intentionally has very little function to it. When you try to look at anything you get directed to the App Store to download the app. Maybe one day when they learn what privacy means.
  • Going Downhill


    By ElizabethVictoria23
    I had yelp for years and used it almost for everything. Today I decided to finally delete it. First, the reviews are not accurate. They censor a lot of reviews. They hide real reviews from real customers. They manipulate the feedback based on how much the businesses spend go advertise. When I started my business I had many people in my industry advise me to not spend a penny on yelp. I haven’t any money on yelp. I have real clients that have left me 5 star reviews. Some show up on my account but the majority are hidden. Many others in my industry have had to pay lots of money for the deceiving way in which yelp charges them for advertising. Great for big business, but screws over small business. As a consumer, I think it’s very deceiving. They manipulate the data. It’s like paying for reviews. And recently they announced they are now going to start doing socially policing businesses. I’m done with this company. I hope another competitor comes out. I’m done with yelp. Bye scammer.
  • Recent Business Racism decision will prove costly.


    By Drenster02e
    I love using this app as a consumer. Have done so for years now. As I have colleagues in business that are somewhat represented on this platform, I need to temper my own opinion based on how some have been treated through the rating system. Set that aside and fast forward. The company has just installed a ‘business suspected of racism’ tag to label a business before any litigation, arbitration or proof is established. Their website has the full breakdown of what this entails. I see no way that this practice won’t end up in disaster, with the company losing one too many suits and getting purchased by a competitor, destroying objectivity, or simply folding altogether, joining the other businesses it will have no doubt destroyed in its wake. The community has already had to deal with a number of false reviews and scams anyway, and this will result in an open season on those just trying to make it that might not be hip on conforming to a particular ideology.
  • Complications of a phone order


    By jmuschenrow
    I like the food at this restaurant. I have a credit card on file to make phone orders easy. Today, however, I was disgusted. I gave my order, the person taking the order was very difficult to understand, spoke poor English and spoke very sloppy, as though he were on a street corner trying to be cool. He asked me to confirm the last 4 digits of my credit card number, something I’ve never been asked to do. I said I was driving and would have to give him the number when I arrived to pick up the order. He said he needed the number in order to complete the order. I repeated that I couldn’t get to my credit card that minute and would confirm the numbers upon arrival. He said he would have to start the order over at that time. I said forget it, cancel the order. I’ve never been treated this way at this restaurant before, and won’t be going back, considering this is the kind of employee they are now hiring.
  • Extortion tool against small businesses


    By Manygzpm
    While this platform can definitely drive traffic to a business willing to pay the money for marketing, it can also bury a small business. For my families small bike shop, we were hounded constantly by Yelp sales people to commit to ads and when we stopped instantly we got burried in the search results. Also, we cancelled our ads but continued to get billed for a significant portion of the adds, roughly $250 a month. I would caution anyone writing a negative review on a small business to consider the power your voice has! How bad was that “bad service”? A single star destroys a family’s business and our lifeblood. There is no way to get incorrect reviews taken down. And often good reviews get pulled from the ranking. I’m not saying Yelp does this maliciously but they are destroying families like mine who don’t have the resources to run ads and can’t compete with deeper pockets able to buy their way to the top!
  • Good but could use improvements


    By Ric M.
    Still 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.
  • Automatic opening of app- STOP


    By ettie3
    UPDATE: Nothing has changed. I give the app a chance by clicking on a link in safari, knowing I will be redirected. I don’t get redirected to what I was previously reading. This is so ridiculous and tiresome. Clearly y’all don’t want people to use your site. ******* I am so tired of you guys forcing me to use this app while I am browsing on safari. It should be an option we can turn off. And if it's not offered, you do a great job of hiding the ball and making people search to figure it out. My use of this app is a choice. If I want to visit the website, I should not be forced to interact with the app. I thought you would have addressed this by now but nope. One star for tone deafness and really messed up advertising. Also: If you're going to force people to open the app when using safari and looking at the mobile site, make sure it works and people are actually directed to the site they were looking at on safari.
