    When you’re looking for someone to service your car, the last thing you want to do is spend $500 or more and find out they messed something up. That’s why you want to read reviews of the businesses before trusting your car with them.

    It's always nice to eat what you want, when you want and how you want. No need to settle for meat any longer. Whether you are in search of dairy based meals or straight up greens, this will help you locate near-by vegan restaurants in less than 5 minutes.

  • Wonderful info with a grain of salt Sep 15, 2021

    By EcoGuerrilla
    It’s wonderful to find a place where you can actually congratulate businesses for the positive they do as well as the usual negative. However when reading the negative reviews I also know that the anonymity of the web gives people a great deal more courage than they would have in person so I always take it with a grain of salt. But when faced with supporting evidenceThat can be investigated by me personally I am grateful for some of the negative comments given. Yelp is been invaluable in choosing the businesses with which I do business. And most of the negative comments I can see where they come from, if they haven’t played out personally. However these days it’s very easy to get offended by the slightest thing so you also have to take that into account. Overall four stars. They are doing a wonderful service in my opinion. :-)

    The app works fairly well for finding businesses. But if you put in a request for an estimate, it won't let you attach pictures right away. It will allow pictures to be attached through messages when the business messages you. It will not allow videos to be attached. I wanted to add a short video of my toilet leaking when I sent requests for proposals from plumbers. I was not able to send that video (or pictures initially).
  • Helpful but spam-y Jun 5, 2021

    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.

    Pretty nice app for finding food! One improvement I would like to see is maybe taking direction into account. Sometimes when I head a certain direction, yelp recommends a place that we need to double back to get to. Maybe if there is an option to turn it on or off for people who are fine with going the extra mile for that delicious breakfast/lunch/dinner

    I have had the pleasure of using Yelp for a very longtime now, mostly for dining, and or restaurant suggestions or reviews prior to dining. I am now finding that I have started looking for help and suggestion or reviews for many other services as of late. One small challenge when trying to find this information, is there needs to be a specific heading for Odd, or Miscellaneous Services, unless I just missed it. I had no problem finding plumbing, or electricians, and this sort of thing, but spent sometime trying to find niche services, such as Solar removal, as opposed to Solar Installation.

  • Carolina Roadhouse Myrtle Beach SC Sep 15, 2021

    By RavsO'sfan
    This was a recommendation by a local who recommended this Steakhouse! The service was second to none. We ate at the bar and the two bartenders were absolutely professional and very helpful and caring that we have a great meal. Carolina Roadhouse has the best garden salad which they advertise with the bacon/honey mustard and absolutely so fresh and tasty. The main course in which we order was the steak dinner. I had the ribeye and if you ever went to Ruth Chris restaurant and I rated them one of the best ever! But the Carolina Roadhouse was right at the top with Ruth Chris as far as we are concerned. The steak was so tasty and cooked to perfection! What a wonderful experience and when we are back in the area next year we definitely will be going back. I’m telling you this was a fantastic dinner and just do it ! You will be amazed with Carolina Roadhouse in Myrtle Beach S.C.
  • Not bad but... Jul 27, 2020

    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.

  • Portable Yelp Aug 7, 2021

    Once I can search for bookmarks open near me, this app will be good. It's still just a glorified bookmark list for restaurants now. Update 2021: not sure whose preschooler made the new app icon, but congrats! Update: still can't search for Bookmarks that are open near me. At least you can search within bookmarks now, but it's just to make finding a single entry easier. I added a star back for this. Update 7.2: not only is searching bookmarks impossible, but just getting to bookmarks is now more difficult. Minus one more star. I'm glad the feed is not the home page as I found it useless, but I am also not interested in "about me", I'm interested in finding restaurants nearby now, especially ones that I have bookmarked. Starting to use Ness more as it understands me better. Yelp is trying to do too much now -- maybe Yelp should consider making a few different apps tailored to different types of user so that the UX doesn't suffer so much? Update: version 7 and I STILL cant search my bookmarks.... Yelp in my pocket is nice. Not being able to search or filter my bookmarks (e.g., by open now) is not nice. Basically it's the web site in an app, but it's missing thoughtful interface touches to take advantage of how it's actually used when you can carry it in your pocket.

  • Was forced to download their app. Jul 23, 2021

    By jobsofsteven
    I do not like websites that force you to download their app to fully read everything. Help is also frequently wrong about hours of operation. I only downloaded this because I wanted to read reviews for a place and couldn’t click on read more without downloading the app -.- there’s no need for a Yelp app when it pops up when you search for any business… it’s more effort to go to the app than just use a search engine. I much prefer google reviews because they are almost always up to date with correct info and hours and more people seem to use it. Yelp is outdated and obsolete. I would like this a lot better if I didn’t HAVE to download the app. It just doesn’t make sense. I imagine they want your info and that’s why they want you to download it. So they can sell it and make money. That’s just what I think, it’s not based on fact. Just my opinion. I would use Yelp a lot more if I didn’t have to download the app -.- it’s not a huge deal but it’s annoying and pointless. I always feel bad for rating some app or business low, and I would give zero stars but it makes me feel bad and mean. So I gave Yelp two stars. Just to be nice. If it was updated with correct info and hours and didn’t fire you to use their app then I would give it 4-5 stars!

    Search results are rigged. Basically sends you to the popular places, but not in the way it's supposed to..very likely businesses that pay to be promoted. For example, I just searched the word "rooftop" and the first recommendation is a very popular bar I've been to before that definitely does not have a rooftop or any semblance of it. Their search results are so annoying. I now just use yelp to save places I've enjoyed eating at.
  • Honda North Aug 28, 2021

    By PMC Grizzlybear
    Thought I’d write and let everybody know about my experience with Honda North on Herndon/Willow. I took my Honda CR-V in for a recall notice on the drive side air bag. They did have to replace with was a good thing. I asked the service guy to please add more Freon because the AC would cool some but not enough when it’s 105 outside. I picked up my car and drive away. After driving a few blocks the A/C wasn’t getting cool or cold now. I drove back to the dealers and asked the service guy what was going on. He said that they thought there were leaks in the a/c and they would have to check it out further. I said I came in here with it getting cool only now I didn’t have anything except blowing hot air at me. Guy said well they had to take all what was left of my Freon out because of EPA. Really! I never authorized them to remove the Freon. He said well sorry. That’s wasn’t good enough. I asked him why he didn’t tell me this when i picked up my car, he said well sorry. The service manager wasn’t in so I said I would call him later. Well I called twice snd left messages and have never heard from anybody there. So now they can make money off me with what they took out of my car. This is not ethical for a busy to do this. I went in with a broken leg, so to speak, and came out with my leg cut off. I would never recommend this place.

    Just stopped working for me. I am perfectly aware of how to set permissions and all permissions are on for Yelp but when I open the app it asks if I'm a ninja because it can't locate me. I can no longer search for anything. Just gives me an error saying they are aware of a problem (seems unlikely since nothing has changed in over a week). All searches fail and give me an error. App no longer serves any purpose for me. One plus 8T+5G
  • Yelp holds business owner’s good reviews for ransom Sep 8, 2021

    By m-L.c.
    Yelp holds business owner’s good reviews for ransom. If you are a small business owner who can’t afford to pay Yelp to ‘advertise’ for you then they will essentially hide any reviews with more than one star. If your business has had six people attempt to leave positive reviews but you haven’t paid said ransom? You (the business owner) are going be told that soliciting good reviews from people is against their rules when in reality it was just people trying leave reviews after a good time spent in said business. But if someone leaves a one star review with an endless amount false information (which you can’t contest bc of yelp’s the customers are always right rule) then that gets posted immediately. And guess what? You guessed it! Once you’ve paid that ransom they’ll ‘help’ you with your false info review problem. Nobody except for small business owners or store managers understand yelp’s ransoming, underhanded ways and the people who use Yelp don’t realize how shady this company is. It’s not just an unbiased review and storefront locater app it is a money sucking, heavy handed, glutton with a pretty façade for a mask.
  • Rick Hill BMW Sep 13, 2021

    By bmsgreg64
    I know that most people don’t take a car to a dealership. I unfortunately took my 2003 BMW 530i and they did manage to get the car started which in my opinion the caused more damage to the car than they fixed. My left front wheel bolts were finger tight. I paid $224 for a new key that I had to program myself. Took all of thirty seconds. Also, they replaced the ECM, a very expensive piece and I don’t think that was the problem. The reason I say this is because the TCU, which resides next to the ECM, went out about a week later. So basically here’s what happened- the mechanic that worked on the car didn’t have a clue what he was doing and was negligent. 1. Left my wheel loose, sold me a key I had to program, burnt a hole in my carpet, left the fuse box located in the glovebox and basically screwed me out of $3200, and didn’t really fix anything. Left my engine cover off, said they soldered a ground wire for the starter under the passenger seat, broke the cover to it. What I wish I had done was turned the car off and went back in and told to fix it like they were supposed to. NEVER TAKE IT TO THESE PEOPLE- Rick Hill BMW In Kingsport TN.

  • Incredible rude Aug 28, 2021

    By AlexisNicole00
    They were so disrespectful to me!!!! And upset because I didn’t have cash. I had opened a soda in the store and taken a couple sips of it in line. I didn’t think this would be a problem! When I got up to the cashier they said it was a minimum of 2.50$ for card I said that’s fine you can just charge me 2.50$ they said no and asked my why I didn’t have any cash on me. As a women I don’t feel safe walking around at night with cash. So I simply cary a card. They repeatedly told me my generation was terrible for not caring around cash and asked me “what was wrong with me, why would I not carry around cash”? After that the man working the cashier whispered under his breath “something generation” and the two of them laughed, when I ask what did u say about me they both shut up! I’ve never had anyone talk so disrespectfully to me in my life. I shared this experience with others and they expressed they had similar experience at this place. Please don’t go here they are over priced and out right rude if anything causes them the slightest inconvenience

  • Must Have App! Jun 19, 2021

    By Kimmy G-lover
    Funny, until I just had a pop-up, it never occurred to me to rate Yelp 🤣 Anyway, this has to be one of the most used apps on my phone! I travel a LOT and Yelp saves me from everything from last resort mediocre take-out food, to wardrobe malfunctions and “where the heck can I find an ‘x’ at this hour” emergencies. Regardless of the number of reviews or stars a place has, I always read the reviews with one or two stars to see if the issues raised are really relevant, or just a posting by someone with unrealistic expectations, which is unfortunately frequent. I’ve found some true gems in my travels, and validated the low ratings of a few I dared to try despite them, but that’s all part of the adventure, right?
  • Always my go to when I’m in a new place or want to find something open late Aug 4, 2021

    By Jendi9
    Yelp has been my go to for many years now. It has more comprehensive information and is not just limited to restaurants like other apps are. I appreciate the reviews and ratings when I am traveling or in a new place. As a bona fide foodie from Portland, I rely on the reviews, ratings, and photos a lot to find really good food wherever I go. And when I wasn’t happy and gave a low rating, I had a restaurant reach out and offer me another opportunity to have a meal on them and improve my review. I’ve also used Yelp to find reviews and get quotes for moving jobs or to find a service provider and was really happy with the app for that.
  • Red Restaurant at the Pacific Palms Resort, City of Industry Sep 1, 2021

    By deenabale
    Last Saturday, August 28, 2021 a group of us had a celebration for August birthday celebrants in our group at the The Red Restaurant in the City of Industry, hosted by Celia and Vic Taroc. We loved our outside seating amidst grandiose lush of greens, glorious mountain and city views, a perfect backdrop for making memories. The ambiance must have whetted the appetites of the group, judging from the empty plates cleared. I ordered what was best for me grilled salmon with veggies cooked to perfection. Most of the group ordered steaks which looked yummy to me too. The irresistible 4 different desserts were beyond ordinary. They maybe the most lingering to our tastes. The servers were courteous and accommodating. What more can I say about the Red Restaurant? I/we would love going there again! Thank you.
  • Yelp's Review Sep 13, 2017

    By Wyverk
    Yelp is quite an amazing app. Many use it to rate first experiences of restaurants, gyms, clothing stores, you name it. Others rate what they have been going to their whole life. Either way, it is a great tool to use in order to understand whether a place you want to check out is good or not. Another bonus to this app is the fact that some businesses are willing to give free product and bonuses just for liking them and leaving a review on yelp. One thing that does confuse me is that a place for show four reviews actually have more than hundred. I'm guessing Yelp either has some algorithm to determine if a review is legitimate or yelp has certain preferences towards certain businesses. Who knows?
  • YELP Sep 24, 2019

    By AKPitman
    I love Yelp! For a long time I had never even heard of Yelp. I was going to restaurants and writing reviews on the food I was getting every place I went. I have always considered myself a good judge of great food, mediocre food, and terrible food. I also believe in telling the truth, but without being downright rude. I then discovered Yelp and started reading reviews of places. I loved reading everyone’s opinion of all the different places. I don’t really remember how I got started writing for Yelp, but I’m glad I do because I love every minute of it. Meeting some of the Yelpers has been a treat too! Real people writing real opinions about food and businesses. Thank you YELP for allowing me to be a part of a wonderful organization.

Also when I request a quote and include multiple companies it usually seems to send a message to the other company as if i specifically reached out to them and then they send me weird replies like - did you find someone yet or we need more info. Yelo should make clear thst they are being requested for a quote / nid as one of 6 companies and please don't reply with I need more info .
  • Use it all the time but annoying sponsored adds Mar 30, 2019

    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.
  • You need to allow reporting of false info Oct 23, 2019

    By Ricky Browning
    The app is great of course. But you need to allow people to report false information. I understand people have different experiences but when something is a flat out lie and can be proven as a lie by looking at photos from other users, we as a community should have the right to take down the false comment. For example I could say a place of business only allows kids to use their business but other users have posted pictures and comments showing adults using the business as well. That would not be a personal experience. That would be a flat out lie. At least allow the reporting to go to the business owner so they can be made aware of the false accusations.
  • User interface & experience updates please May 24, 2018

    By curlsbythapound
    Overall the app is easy to use and becomes more intuitive the more you use it, like with any aspect of technology that’s designed to learn preferences and make recommendations. What I would like to see developers improve over the next few updates is how you’re able to request “friends” or at least have a section where I can track/manage my requests one they are sent. After a request has been sent, there’s no section to refer back to or receive notifications from. I’m aware that you can edit bot Yelp and push notifications in the setting but I’d like to see some more updates regarding the social aspect. I use Yelp primarily from my iPhone if that helps.
  • Awesome app for finding new and quality places Jun 30, 2018

    By Spieweezy
    I’ve found new restaurants I didn’t know existed near me and really quality places thanks to this app. It’s very helpful to see what’s out there. What the details are. What people do and do not like. This app connects you to places and a community of people. It’s like having thousands of friends offering recommendations and teaching you where to go or where to stay away. Awesome app use it and find out what’s out there. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 starts is because I’ve written a few reviews and I’ve gone back to see my reviews and they are not posted or “recommended reviews” I guess the more I use the app, the better chance I have of my review being recommended.
  • Good service, but could be refined more (especially on food) Jan 15, 2021

    By YakuzaDaemon
    I wish there were a better way to weight and filter the reviews based on décor, service, and food quality. Also, it seems like sometimes the better places have artificially lower reviews than I personally felt they deserved and there are way too many 4.5 to 5 star reviewed restaurants that fall not only short of deserving said score, but FAR SHORT. This is my biggest gripe with it so far. I mean, I guess taste is very subjective—but it’d be nice to inject a little more reliability and objectivity into it. I don’t know how they would do this logistically or with the programming, but ultimately I want to be disappointed less when I go to a supposedly well-reviewed restaurant.
  • Helpful but spam-y Jun 5, 2021

    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.
  • Not bad but... Jul 27, 2020

    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.
  • Portable Yelp Aug 7, 2021

    By rktca
    Once I can search for bookmarks open near me, this app will be good. It's still just a glorified bookmark list for restaurants now. Update 2021: not sure whose preschooler made the new app icon, but congrats! Update: still can't search for Bookmarks that are open near me. At least you can search within bookmarks now, but it's just to make finding a single entry easier. I added a star back for this. Update 7.2: not only is searching bookmarks impossible, but just getting to bookmarks is now more difficult. Minus one more star. I'm glad the feed is not the home page as I found it useless, but I am also not interested in "about me", I'm interested in finding restaurants nearby now, especially ones that I have bookmarked. Starting to use Ness more as it understands me better. Yelp is trying to do too much now -- maybe Yelp should consider making a few different apps tailored to different types of user so that the UX doesn't suffer so much? Update: version 7 and I STILL cant search my bookmarks.... Yelp in my pocket is nice. Not being able to search or filter my bookmarks (e.g., by open now) is not nice. Basically it's the web site in an app, but it's missing thoughtful interface touches to take advantage of how it's actually used when you can carry it in your pocket.
  • Good but could use improvements Jan 31, 2019

    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.
  • Needs to prioritize reviews better Feb 8, 2018

    By Sashazur
    It doesn't make sense that even for places with hundreds of reviews, the app lists reviews in random order... You might see a six month old review on top, followed by one from five years ago, then one from last week, etc. This makes it harder to tell if a place with overall good ratings has gone downhill recently, or if a place with overall bad ones has started improving. About the only way I can see this seemingly random order making sense is when a business suddenly gets a bunch of mostly good or bad reviews due to sketchy reasons - but that likely doesn't happen often. One other comment... I know people complain about how businesses can pay to get listed first, but the app makes it obvious by showing the "ad" symbol etc. and Yelp has to make money somehow.
  • La Foresta in Killingworth Jul 10, 2021

    By youreallydon't wantareview
    Four of us went out to La Foresta after a long drought of COVID. We were really looking forward to it but what a disappointment! Two out of four did not get what we thought we had ordered. I ordered one of the two specials which was shrimp with broccoli but when it arrived in a deep bowl, it was mostly pasta and everything was bland, no flavor! It looked and tasted like a boiled dish! I couldn’t eat it! The other person had salmon with “lobster mashed potatoes” but the potatoes did not have any lobster or taste of lobster. This person never complains about her food but she couldn’t eat the potatoes!! They were heavily flavored with red pepper. Everything was expensive for what we had!! Also, there were flies and a wasp buzzing around us all evening! We’ve always enjoyed La Foresta but this was so awful that I doubt we’ll be going back.
  • Customer service needs a little more aloha! Dec 5, 2020

    By daohana1
    Just called to try and place an order to support this place. Not always on this side of the island so we were looking forward to the food here. Kalbi and hamburger steak was ono the last time we were here. Too bad sistah was sassy and couldn’t handle some simple questions. When asking my daughter if she wanted a mini or regular, the person taking the order went “oh my gosh!” With a heavy sigh! I guess she didn’t realize she said it out loud or something, but it wasn’t like she was trying to hide it either. Asked if there was someone else to speak to to take my order. She replied there was none. So I told her I’d call back. I’m hoping to get someone with some aloha. I hope no one else has to deal with this kind of customer service from here today. Keep the aloha alive!
  • Hit or miss with this place Jul 27, 2021

    By Nana Singh
    First time I came here I really loved my nails and everyone was very friendly, I don’t remember the older mans name who did my nails but he was great. Second time around I came in hoping the same but unfortunately that was not the case. I had a photo to show my nail tech what i wanted and even then he did the opposite. I felt extremely bad because it seemed as if he was new and didn’t want to discourage him but for a simple one color and short regular nail with no design i paid 96 dollars in my opinion i don’t think that is a reasonable price when the first time i got much longer nails with powder and a French tip designed and paid 109. Go at your own risk and be prepared to either love it or hate it. And if you return your experience might be completely different from the first.
  • Great app, but some very annoying glitches... Apr 5, 2019

    By Alexkaay
    Yelp is an awesome app but there are some glitches but that make it super irritating to use! The main one is that every time I go to look at a restaurant’s photos, it’ll freeze after a minute or two and then I have to close the app and restart it and search all over again. This happens every time I use the app without fail. Another glitch is when I search for a restaurant on Google, find their yelp page, click on the link and a message prompts asking if I want to open the page in the Yelp app. I click ‘yes’ and the app opens but not the restaurant’s page. I have to then search for it, which is not a huge deal but kinda defeats the purpose of me opening it on Yelp rather than simply clicking on the page from Google.
  • Was forced to download their app. Jul 23, 2021

    By jobsofsteven
    I do not like websites that force you to download their app to fully read everything. Help is also frequently wrong about hours of operation. I only downloaded this because I wanted to read reviews for a place and couldn’t click on read more without downloading the app -.- there’s no need for a Yelp app when it pops up when you search for any business… it’s more effort to go to the app than just use a search engine. I much prefer google reviews because they are almost always up to date with correct info and hours and more people seem to use it. Yelp is outdated and obsolete. I would like this a lot better if I didn’t HAVE to download the app. It just doesn’t make sense. I imagine they want your info and that’s why they want you to download it. So they can sell it and make money. That’s just what I think, it’s not based on fact. Just my opinion. I would use Yelp a lot more if I didn’t have to download the app -.- it’s not a huge deal but it’s annoying and pointless. I always feel bad for rating some app or business low, and I would give zero stars but it makes me feel bad and mean. So I gave Yelp two stars. Just to be nice. If it was updated with correct info and hours and didn’t fire you to use their app then I would give it 4-5 stars!

    Search results are rigged. Basically sends you to the popular places, but not in the way it's supposed to..very likely businesses that pay to be promoted. For example, I just searched the word "rooftop" and the first recommendation is a very popular bar I've been to before that definitely does not have a rooftop or any semblance of it. Their search results are so annoying. I now just use yelp to save places I've enjoyed eating at.

    For the past month the location services have not worked. They work for all other apps. I even tried always on (usually set for only when in app) .. nothing. Since there is no way to enter a support ticket via the app, I am using this review to get your attention on the issue.

  • Don't bother Jun 15, 2021

    By Beldar88
    This app doesn't work well for me. Clunky interface, search just seems to leave things out. The regular site is way better (but apparently no longer accessible using my iPhone ). And while I do use Yelp sometimes, I have noticed some shady goings on, where reviews are removed or hidden for mysterious reasons. And if you want to contact Yelp? Sorry, no can do. Only review their "support" area. I find that outrageous. If you search generally for a review with your phone, and end up on the Yelp site, it will offer to "open in the Yelp app". However, if you choose that option it will just open the app -- but not to the company you are searching for. If you don’t use that, but cheers continue, he does exactly the same thing. You have to re-search. AND now, in summer 2021, there is no way to access reviews using an iPhone, unless you download this bad app. Company started out good, is now terrible.

    Ok app, I do I use it a lot but sort doesn't work (on the app). I don't want Yelp sort. I want most recent. You can select most recent but then when viewing all reviews it forgets that you selected it. How hard is it the sort? I don't want to see reviews from years ago at the top.
  • Old standby keeps getting worse Apr 1, 2021

    By Skookie31
    I guess they’re driven to make more money but Yelp has gotten so much worse over the years. I used to count on it to give me a look at all of a certain type of business in an area that I am in or plan to visit, but too many legitimate entries just don’t seem to appear unless you play tricks and perform multiple searches with slight variations in either what you are searching for or the location. I can’t put my finger on it but it has just gotten so much worse over time. When I’m looking to just get basic information and suggestions of places I would like to take my business, I get bombarded with suggestions that are nowhere near my destination and just get in the way of what I’m trying to find out. I was looking at an entry today for a restaurant. At the top it says there are six reviews but they are nowhere to be found. There is a link for one unsupported review (even though it says nothing that could be exclusionary) and several annoying review comments about restaurants that are not near the area and or not the type I am looking for. I guess what really bothers me are the businesses that I know are in the area I am interested in do not show up on searches. I guess they don’t pay enough for Yelp’s blessing to appear.
  • Unfair reviews Oct 12, 2019

    By dogs4pkc
    I don’t understand how they can say they aren’t biased. There is often no rhyme or reason why some reviews are selected as “not recommended” and others, all factors the same, are left in recommended. I frequent a specific business often, my one luxury is getting acrylics done on my nails. Yet when I have more to say, instead of allowing it to post as an update, as they do for other customers, they separate the updates and post it under not recommended, leaving only the latest update. When I sort the reviews by the most recent first, even though the update is 4 days ago, it does not appear as recent. Since so many reviews are posted under not recommended, even those with 5 stars, it causes me to pause and question what is really going on. I’ve researched all their explanations but haven’t seen them applied.
  • Is Yelp becoming socialist? May 6, 2021

    By Mike Litshurt
    I loved this app when it 1st became available. It was the greatest search engine when traveling because it would sort the 5 star restaurants, clubs, hotels, etc from the 2 and 3 star places.....and I could find a 5 star place closest to me in a flash. It was awesome!! However, now when I’m traveling, it doesn’t give me the BEST place that’s closest to me because it groups all the other 2 and 3 star places in with the 5 star places. Doesn’t make sense to me why they changed but I guess in America, these days, everyone gets rewarded for mediocrity. No winners....just trophies. I’ll leave that subject alone or else I may get a surprise audit. Anyway, I wish Yelp would at least offer a way to search the old way. It’s too difficult to drive and sort through the crappy places that aren’t near me just so I can find what I really want.
  • Been falling behind Sep 4, 2018

    By Kuroshhashemi
    For a long time I was one of yelps biggest advocates. But recently I find myself using Google Places and FourSquare a lot more. The convenience of google maps having reviews built in is hard to beat. Also foursquares UI is more fun and search is more accurate. But what really gets me is how SLOW Yelps app has become. S-L-O-W. And it seems to be become a lot slower since they added collections. Don’t get me wrong I’m super happy they finally added an easier way to group bookmarks (because I have about 1000 of them but can’t remember why I bookmark each) but it is also extremely slow to organize/delete the bookmarks - so I simply can’t use it and started using google maps to bookmark places. I wish there was something as lightweight and easy as Chromes bookmarks manager to organize these things because it’s unbearable
  • Honda North Aug 28, 2021

    By PMC Grizzlybear
    Thought I’d write and let everybody know about my experience with Honda North on Herndon/Willow. I took my Honda CR-V in for a recall notice on the drive side air bag. They did have to replace with was a good thing. I asked the service guy to please add more Freon because the AC would cool some but not enough when it’s 105 outside. I picked up my car and drive away. After driving a few blocks the A/C wasn’t getting cool or cold now. I drove back to the dealers and asked the service guy what was going on. He said that they thought there were leaks in the a/c and they would have to check it out further. I said I came in here with it getting cool only now I didn’t have anything except blowing hot air at me. Guy said well they had to take all what was left of my Freon out because of EPA. Really! I never authorized them to remove the Freon. He said well sorry. That’s wasn’t good enough. I asked him why he didn’t tell me this when i picked up my car, he said well sorry. The service manager wasn’t in so I said I would call him later. Well I called twice snd left messages and have never heard from anybody there. So now they can make money off me with what they took out of my car. This is not ethical for a busy to do this. I went in with a broken leg, so to speak, and came out with my leg cut off. I would never recommend this place.

  • Yelp holds business owner’s good reviews for ransom Sep 8, 2021

    By m-L.c.
    Yelp holds business owner’s good reviews for ransom. If you are a small business owner who can’t afford to pay Yelp to ‘advertise’ for you then they will essentially hide any reviews with more than one star. If your business has had six people attempt to leave positive reviews but you haven’t paid said ransom? You (the business owner) are going be told that soliciting good reviews from people is against their rules when in reality it was just people trying leave reviews after a good time spent in said business. But if someone leaves a one star review with an endless amount false information (which you can’t contest bc of yelp’s the customers are always right rule) then that gets posted immediately. And guess what? You guessed it! Once you’ve paid that ransom they’ll ‘help’ you with your false info review problem. Nobody except for small business owners or store managers understand yelp’s ransoming, underhanded ways and the people who use Yelp don’t realize how shady this company is. It’s not just an unbiased review and storefront locater app it is a money sucking, heavy handed, glutton with a pretty façade for a mask.
  • Rick Hill BMW Sep 13, 2021

    By bmsgreg64
    I know that most people don’t take a car to a dealership. I unfortunately took my 2003 BMW 530i and they did manage to get the car started which in my opinion the caused more damage to the car than they fixed. My left front wheel bolts were finger tight. I paid $224 for a new key that I had to program myself. Took all of thirty seconds. Also, they replaced the ECM, a very expensive piece and I don’t think that was the problem. The reason I say this is because the TCU, which resides next to the ECM, went out about a week later. So basically here’s what happened- the mechanic that worked on the car didn’t have a clue what he was doing and was negligent. 1. Left my wheel loose, sold me a key I had to program, burnt a hole in my carpet, left the fuse box located in the glovebox and basically screwed me out of $3200, and didn’t really fix anything. Left my engine cover off, said they soldered a ground wire for the starter under the passenger seat, broke the cover to it. What I wish I had done was turned the car off and went back in and told to fix it like they were supposed to. NEVER TAKE IT TO THESE PEOPLE- Rick Hill BMW In Kingsport TN.

  • Incredible rude Aug 28, 2021

    By AlexisNicole00
    They were so disrespectful to me!!!! And upset because I didn’t have cash. I had opened a soda in the store and taken a couple sips of it in line. I didn’t think this would be a problem! When I got up to the cashier they said it was a minimum of 2.50$ for card I said that’s fine you can just charge me 2.50$ they said no and asked my why I didn’t have any cash on me. As a women I don’t feel safe walking around at night with cash. So I simply cary a card. They repeatedly told me my generation was terrible for not caring around cash and asked me “what was wrong with me, why would I not carry around cash”? After that the man working the cashier whispered under his breath “something generation” and the two of them laughed, when I ask what did u say about me they both shut up! I’ve never had anyone talk so disrespectfully to me in my life. I shared this experience with others and they expressed they had similar experience at this place. Please don’t go here they are over priced and out right rude if anything causes them the slightest inconvenience

  • Texas Nissan- Grapevine, Tx Aug 11, 2021

    By Reagan 88
    I called the service department to make an appointment to bring in my Altima for a safety recall. One was a-hood latch, and the other was to put my car up on a lift and see if it had a rear suspension problem. I was told I would need to leave my car for 3 days to get this safety recall done! Even if I made an appointment a week in advance. They also said they offered no loaner car, no courtesy van (due to Covid) . I couldn’t believe it so I called another Nissan dealership in the area and they said”sure bring your car in the morning- we should be able to get it done in an hour or so, while you wait. No problem! I will NEVER go back to Texas Nissan! They obviously didn’t want to fool with a safety recall, probably doesn’t pay enough! And my husband and I have 2 cars we have bought from that dealership.! Their waiting room is terrible too - metal chairs in the hallway with one small sofa in front of a tv. Shame on them for not trying to fix a safety recall by telling a customer you have to leave your car for 3 days!
  • Read privacy policy first, no web functions Oct 19, 2020

    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.
