New to us? Here's the deal. The Infatuation is a much loved (by our moms) and highly trusted (by pretty much everyone) resource for relatable perspective on restaurants. We help you find the ideal spot that's “Perfect For:” Date Night, Girls' Night Out, Dinner With The Parents, and many other situations. This app exists to help you search through our database of thousands of carefully curated reviews, all of which our small editorial team wrote without the restaurants knowing we were there. We are sneaky and also unbiased. This is the restaurant guide that you've been looking for.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m a huge fan of the Infatuation and I have some ideas for how to improve the mobile app. I think allowing users to create custom folders to categorize the restaurants they put on their hit list would be a great addition. For example, there are restaurants that I’ve been to on my hit list and ones that I haven’t been to, I’d like to be able to separate them into two folders: one for those I’ve been to and want to keep in my back pocket and another for ones I haven’t been to yet and want to try. So yeah customizable folders for the hit list could be nice. Also on the website there’s a way to search by price, perfect for, and cuisine type. There are no ways to refine your search on the app so maybe that could be something to improve
No way to review and Reviews are terrible
Read a quick overview on Snapchat and downloaded this app. I went it to do some looking on the places I had just gone to in San Francisco and the first one called Tony’s Pizza Napoletana. This was my absolute favorite besides Mama’s and some guy rated it terribly because there were screaming kids and they cook pizzas a different heat levels and styles. What? Why are you going to rate a restaurant on their techniques? Also, it’s not the restaurants fault the customers kids were screaming. What a terrible review! On top of that, I couldn’t review it myself. The review button is black and will not let me go in and rate the restaurant. Hate this app! I don’t know how it’s getting 4.9 stars! Shame on Snapchat for recommending them too!
I am an impatient millennial using your app. When I add listings to my hit list the visual confirmation pop up that confirms it’s been added hangs on my screen for as much time as it would take me to send a fax to my grandmother (remember those?also yes I communicate with my grandmother via fax). I typically come into the app to quickly build out my hit list based on your new listings , and your stifling the speed of my thumbs with the 4 second visual screen locking check box which acknowledges my addition. Send help. Or a fix, or maybe a fax... thanks.
