What's New in Version 3.4.1
The neatest Foodie App!
I was on the website awhile, maybe a few months, before I got this app and I really appreciate the options it provides.
One improvement I think would be a way to indicate which side of the city I am currently in, before "shaking" to find a restaurant (north, east, south, etc or by specific neighborhoods like Delano or College Hill or wherever, depending on the area where you are. The end-run seems to be to use the "Search Near Me" feature, assuming you have the gps location service turned on - but it isn't near as much fun as shaking the app!!
There also doesn't seem to be a graceful procedure to indicate that one restaurant has closed, at a specific location, but another restaurant has re-opened in the same place (address and building same), different name, owner, food theme, name, hours of operation, etc.), but as I post the information, the Urbanspoon developers/staff have been great to work with and provide feedback and make changes. Guess it is just a learning curve for all of us.
This also seems to be better than Yelp but there again, constant editing and re-editing needed there, as well as here, because restaurants constantly open and close.
Went there for my birthday dinner since could not get into Wild Rosemary, was highly disappointed all around. First of all our table wasn't ready on time so we went to the bar & had 2 overpriced drinks, they finally seated us, & our waitresses were not very friendly from the start, as we looked over the menu we realized that it was way overpriced, how about $140 for a 6 oz. steak that you get nothing else with, not that I ordered that I got the 10 oz. Rooney while the steak was ok at that you would think for $50 that you would get a salad, soup, & a side but all you get it a mediocre piece of meat, their appetizers are ridiculously overpriced they wanted $63 for 2 crab cakes, 4 scallops & calamari, for the Dr. Jeykal app. was $65 & the Mr. Hyde was $95, are you serious ??????? The manager came to our table & asked how our meal was & I could not help myself by telling him how disappointing it was. He then took one of our meals off that was terrible which was the Chilean sea bass that was terribly bland, I told him Bonefish Grille had by far better, we did have the Ahi tuna as an app. which in itself was not great, Outback has by far better & you get much more for a better price. I did get a piece of cheesecake for my birthday compliments of manager but whatever they put on it tasted like cough syrup!!! Needless to say we will NEVER go there again!!!!
Great app for when you can't remember a number or what you want to eat.
I love using urbanspoon for those time when I cannot remember a restaurant's name or number. All I have to do is put in the type of cuisine and bingo I've found my answer. Also it is a wonderful app to use when you are somewhere you are unsure of what there is to eat. All you have to do is search for restaurants around your current location and you have several choices that are also labeled by cuisine and cost. Even though sometimes and on rare occasions when you go to use this app to find restaurants in a place you've never been or are not familiar with, it can miss lead you or tell you a place exists when it is actually no longer open for business I still really love this app. It makes dinning so much easier.
