Top Reviews

  • Helpful but spam-y


    By CaliRya
    This 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.
  • Pervin’s Custom Tailor


    By NonniesLives
    It was our first time using this unbelievable place to have things altered. It was our granddaughter’s prom dress which was quite intricate and loads of fabric to handle. The lady that served us had her try on her dress and immediately went about measuring, etc. and made very astute suggestions as how to handle her dress. She even made her a matching mask out of the extra fabric. On pickup day, it was ready and waiting and we were so impressed with the quality of the service and the professionalism of the tailor. It is a small place. They have been there quite a long time, and I will definitely return if we need any other alterations done. It is obviously a well run business to have survived the pandemic. The lady was so nice and friendly you felt very comfortable being in there. It appeared that there is a lot of returning customers! I was very pleased! I would recommend this tailor shop to anybody in the area who wants quality service. My granddaughter liked the work she did and the lady. Sorry, I don’t remember her name. Donna Brown
  • TERMINIX


    By Nancy Nearduked
    I recently signed a contract with this company and was almost duked. The first red flag was the interest rate quoted and the one that I signed was different. The second flaw was the phone number listed on the contract was a number which was no longer in service and the final flaw was trying to reach out to the company who never calls you back. Enlighten of all these red flags you have to cancel within a certain amount of time or you’re stuck with the contact. I cancel the contract and sent the contractor Rich a copy and this is when I met the devil. Rich had been nice and professional and seem in-tuned to my concerns during the contract signing. However, when I received the contract by email later that day with a interest rate which was nearly triple, this is concerning. Rich attempted to tell me that I will receive a copy of the initial quote of 7% which is a huge different from the 18% with my signature attached. I’m aware that I could be held liable for such a high interest rate and I’m fully aware that Ignorance is no excuse of the law. I recommend for others to read a contract when doing business here or you may end up being duked.
  • 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.
  • Not bad but...


    By dissapointed and iritated!
    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.
  • They pick And choose which racist reviews to remove


    By Ninas baby
    So I left a review about an Asian woman who I noticed was treating black customers bad Yelp proceeded to flag and remove my comment. LolI asked them to no shut my account down because let’s face it who cares about a yelp account for real. My Niece and I who is a law student here in Washington have went over all the racist reviews we can find which were 48+ that talk about black people black neighborhoods and yelp has yet to remove them so I’m gonna start a little action here since you want to pick and choose which reviews you want to remove. Every review that refers to black businesses as ghetto and black people have attitudes which is a negative stereotype that white people have tricked society into thinking let’s not forget who stole the land who enslaved people yeah you guys are the true gangsters but you make black people look evil I want to see those removed so this worked out perfectly because now My Niece is going to use this opportunity as a base to her thesis. Thanks Yelp.
  • 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.
  • One & Done


    By We're never going back
    This is restaurant week. We use this week to explore restaurants we haven’t tried before. Our dinner at Kitchen West was a total waste of time & money. It started with our not being given the restaurant week menu. When it arrived one (of four) had the fish entree scratched off and another fish substituted. The other three showed the original seafood special. Our waiter was virtually non-existent. After a 20 minute wait I had to go to the concierge to have her send him to our table. Sure enough, they were out of the seafood special. It was another 20 minutes until our salads appeared. The food was decent at best. After dinner we had to flag down another server to get our waitstaff to return to our table. We had asked for separate checks but our server only gave us a single check for the table. The ultimate insult was a mandatory 20% tip was built into our check. No wonder service was terrible. The waitstaff has no incentive to provide good service. STAY AWAY!
  • Nightmare


    By Craig & Christine
    I am so sorry to have to write this about a local company when we tried to give them a chance. At every step of the way there was a mistake and, while as customers we were extremely frustrated, they did not treat us right and talked back to us. The product was totally damaged upon install and they claimed to stand by product but in the interim charged our card incorrectly a few times and also against what they declared they would do as they indicated that we would not need to pay remaining amount until product installed correctly. We were told we had one POC yet that individual never followed up with us. Discount was not applied correctly either. They do not understand the adage that the customer is right. My goodness. What an immense headache for a simple project. The left hand does not know what the right is doing here. Too many people involved. We will not use them again and caution all to proceed with immense caution. So sad.
  • Use it all the time but annoying sponsored adds


    By Emwilflower
    I 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.
