The thing is, how do you go about judging a restaurant? This is the question I pose to you. I'm keen to look at food (that's probably important hey?), ambience and service. What I need is how to weight these categories. What do you guys value as most important? If you get a great meal in a shopping centre does that compare to an average meal on a gorgeous wine estate for example? How much of a difference does the waiter, host/hostess, chef etc. make to your overall experience? Enough to ruin a great meal? Enough to make an average meal acceptable?
I'd love to know your thoughts. I'll get the basic vibe you guys are after and then start trawling through the archives to give a rating to every restaurant I've reviewed so far.
Drop me a line (jokes man, who actually says that?). E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just leave some thoughts below.
