The Infatuation (formerly known as Immaculate Infatuation) has become one of the country's most trusted resources for honest, relatable perspective on restaurants. Now it's even easier to find the ideal spot that's “Perfect For:” Date Night, Girls' Night Out, Dinner With The Parents, and much more. This app makes searching through The Infatuation’s vast database of carefully curated reviews both easy and enjoyable. This is the restaurant guide that you've been looking for.
“Apps for finding restaurants are plentiful, but most of them leave me feeling overwhelmed. I want someone to choose for me, and I trust the authors of this app to do that. Their taste has never led me astray.” - Joshua Brustein, The New York Times
• NEARBY: Find nearby restaurants around your current location, while also moving the map to see restaurants anywhere and everywhere.
• SEARCH: Browse and combine from four different search categories to find the restaurant that best suits your needs. Categories include: Perfect For (example filters: Girls’ Night Out, Late Night Eats, Outdoor/Patio Situation), Cuisine, Neighborhood and more.
• HIT LIST: Now it’s easy to keep track of your favorite restaurants and the ones that you have been dying to try. “Hit List” any of our reviews on the app and it’ll keep a running list of your favorite and future targets. Hit Listed restaurants will also show up in red on the Nearby map.
What's New in Version 4.2.3
If you recently restored your phone and weren’t able to access all of the app’s content or lost your Hit List, we’ve fixed those bugs.
Ever wanted to move around the map and see a list of the closest restaurants? We've also added a new feature where the Nearby list will update based on the map's location.
(Almost) Better than Yelp
When it comes to actually finding recommendations, it's always tough because sifting through hundreds of user reviews isn't always the most accurate way to judge an establishment--I don't trust everyone's opinions. Infatuation does a wonderful job curating restaurants with professional reviews. It's like asking a friend who actually knows what they're talking about.
However, the app itself is still lacking from a usability standpoint. When reading up on a restaurant, it's really tricky to figure out how to actually navigate to said restaurant--the maps feature in the app only applies to finding nearby restaurants, but not actually specifying where a restaurant would be once you've already found one within the app. On top of this, there is no way to copy the restaurant address-- which is necessary for texting it to friends or searching it in a 3rd party app like Google Maps.
Usability aside, this app is a must have for exploring the culinary and bar scene.
Fit for Foodies
I LOVE this App! In the dozen or so recommendations so far, none have steered me wrong. It's particularly great for those times you need to find a place - a GOOD place to meet someone for dinner at convenient spot but don't want to compromise on restaurant experience. The plate suggestions noted within the reviews have always been spot on. And the app just steered me to great place, while out-of-town, I never would have known about. The day I had my reservation, the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star. This app has broadened my repertoire of restaurants and I tell everyone to download it.
Great for those looking for something deeper than gel
This app is perfect for everyone who has gotten a little fed up with the whine-filled rants of the Yelp community surrounding most of the restaurants in the nation. It is a great substitute and I have found myself checking this app every time I am deciding on a new place to eat!
