8/20/2018: I like visually reviewing my YELP statistics now than, when YELP initially began eons ago . . . Well, think about Yelp's first 2004 front, URL page which has improved drastically as years forges ahead. Can you believe YELP has been HOT . . . LIVE for 14-years? Lol~I believe YELP IS FLYING HIGH!
Ironically, I didn't initially join YELP . . . Truthfully, I didn't know YELP existed not until, Aaron Vinson worked for YELP SF who recommended I join so, that's my backstory . . . I'm leaving that fact as status quo. Anyway, I've met a plethora, and I do mean a PLETHORA of awesomely cool, YELPing Peeps, since joining YELP in late 2007, became an Elite YELP Member in 2008 but, fell off being an Elite YELP Member due to living in South Korea from 2009 until March 10, 2011: Please read my exciting backstory about my YELP review for Houshi Ryokan Hot Springs Hotel-it's a real shocking eye-opener!
To date, I'm continually meeting new YELPing Peeps: I'm absolutely, utterly delighted sharing enlightening tête-à-tête conversations with globetrotting, real-time, YELPing Peeps and immeasurably enjoying all their cool photos they've taken all over the Planet. What a globetrotting, daily treat YELP is for me!
In one hour, I feel I have traveled the Planet via admiring all YELPing Peeps' massively gargantuan, beautiful, photo collections without being frisked by an actual TSA Agent and having to purchase an airline ticket~lol. In fact, I make checking YELP a mandatory prerequisite before traveling to my globetrotting destination, i.e., YELP Reviews saved me from experiencing a disastrous journey countless times. For example, Placerville's Let's Poke saved me flying to Maui visiting Foodland for eating authentic poke-HAH!
In addition, I have to thank ALEX-YELP Sacramento for recommending I become an Elite Yelp Member in May 2018: Kudos, Alex and thank you so very much for recognizing I'm a true YELPing Peep. My photos and my receipts PROVE Kilroy was here, there, and everywhere-LOL!
Finally, I have ONE gargantuan request I'd like asking YELP's CEO, Jeremy Stoppelman: Will you please open YELP Reviews for all of FAR EAST ASIA such as South Korea, the Philippine Provinces-there's other places aside Manila ya know, and other foreign countries offering off-grid travel destinations not found on YELP, PLEASE? I surely would appreciate YELP allowing me writing YELP Reviews and posting my awesome, globetrotting photo collections, too!
HEADS UP~2007 YELP REVIEW=Two Stars:
Why aren't my check-in reviews complete when I check-in via my iPhone 5? I discovered when I'm checking reviews on my laptop, my check-in reviews are incomplete; sometimes my reviews I have written and posted aren't published not until weeks or months later; there is a problem when posting pics as well . . . Such as posting a pic-the pic I posted for a particular review were not posted! Why?
Also, when I do check-in, why does the tip screen redundantly appear again after I have already annotated an initial tip?
Please fix these anomalies so, I only have to complete my check-ins once and writing a review simultaneously, NOT rehashing writing a plethora of redundant postings!
I have never written a review. I actually had to get the Yelp app put on my phone today to do this but I am so tired of being abused by my local post office that I need to speak out. First, I thanked them numerous times during and after the election. I greatly appreciate the incredible job they all did but other than that, Denville PO is a complete bust. I am always polite when I ask a question and am rewarded with condescending and rude behavior in return. Today, when I POLITELY inquired if there was anything that could be done when my mail is so drenched on rainy days when it is handed to me that magazine pages are stuck permanently together and bills are so drenched the ink has run. I was scolded by the “superintendent” who yelled “what did I expect, the mailman is wet so the mail is wet!” and “Do you think we should supply 400 pieces of plastic to your mailman to keep it dry!?!?” Really? 400 pieces of plastic? That’s their only solution. A remarkably belligerent response if ever there was one. I commented that it was pointless to receive mail if it was too wet to open or read. Kind of misses the whole point. I expect no changes whatsoever since in the 22 years I’ve lived here their incompetence and rudeness has been remarkably dependable with only a few exceptions.
The ignition lock of our Mercedes malfunctioned and froze the steering so that the the car would not start, the front wheels were turned at a 45 degree angle and locked in gear. We were parked with permission in the next door neighbors driveway at an angle a top a long steep driveway. We called Triple A and they sent a flat bed and then a wrecker, both drivers saying the towing was an impossibility and they could not provide service. I had visions of hiring a crane to pick up the car and lift it over ours and our neighbors home. I called a local automotive repair shop who were kind enough to come out to evaluate the situation. On their recommendation, I called Fircrest Towing and the owner showed up promptly at the arranged time. After a quick evaluation and an assurance that my situation was not unique, he placed dollies on the back wheels, lifted the front wheels up drove down the steep driveway and was off to the automotive service garage, all in about 12 minutes. The driver/owner was sympathetic, courteous, and appeared to me to be highly competent. I can’t say enough about his professionalism.
I’ve been eating Star pizza for over 20 years. It’s the best, right up there with some of the great NYC pizzerias. But, and it pains me to say this, the pizza is not the same recently.
I don’t know quite what it is - the sauce isn’t as tangy, the crust isn’t as crispy, and the cheese isn’t as gooey. The pizza used to have this melt in your mouth quality to it, while simultaneously exploding with flavor. It was a delicacy. It’s still good, don’t get me wrong, it’s just not out-of-this-world good lately.
It feels almost sacrilegious writing this, and I bet most casual pizza eaters won’t even notice the difference. But if you know your pizza, and you’ve been making trips to Star for twenty years, you’ll know they tweaked the formula.
Just my two cents, for what it’s worth, bring back the old pie guys. Don’t cut corners. You might save a few bucks for the first couple of years before people catch on, but in the long run tinkering with the golden goose is just not a good idea.
I have never been more disappointed in an establishment I have visited fir years. I gave a baby shower for my daughter this past Saturday and ordered 30 boxed lunches for this very special occasion. ( my first grandchild)
I was promised delivery, told I could change the order as early as Saturday am due to changing attendees. There was no delivery, no box lunches nothing. I finally sent my daughter to the Buckhead store to check on everything and they were closed. Need info into the scrambling that took place at 11:30 fir a 12:30 shower. Don’t depend on their delivery or catering department ever ever every.
I went by the store a week before to confirm, check out the type of plastic containers etc. Unbelievable experience.
Incredible shop. Loved spending time with the owner. Felt very well taken care of, and bought some of the most exquisitely lovely art glass ever. No uncomfortable feeling about what I spent, no sense that I needed to bargain, just a great experience. Felt that the pricing was fair - I spent a lot, but such a value! (Also picked up a few beautiful little things that George made! Hopefully, I’ll let them be gifts, as I know that they’ll be enjoyed by anyone who’s beholding their beauty!). —- I’m new to Yelp!, and glad to have the opportunity to say how great I feel about yesterday’s wonderful experience —- also enjoyed the other customers’ enthusiasm, and artistry...
We ordered takeout we were here in advance before it was ready.
The fries were hard and cold
The meat was under cooked was supposed to be medium rare,it was raw couldn’t even cut it.
The broccoli was so hard I guess they forgot to steam it ♀️when it said cooked broccoli I expected it to have some steaming done
The kids meal the lumpy cold mashed potatoes and the meat that came raw as well you could not cut either ♀️
Things were package wrong ,leaked and a mess... if I could’ve given a zero stars
I would’ve, it did not give me that option we will never come back here again .
I would never spend my dime here again very disappointed
80 dollars for yuck
Yelp in a nutshell: A platform that directly encourages the harassment of small businesses, AND their employees, via a lack of customer content moderation - while also extorting those same businesses for profit with said content.
Not only as a Developer of Apple apps, but a human being, I’m not sure what world you live in where you think it’s okay for an irate customer to directly attack an employee of ANY business.
You are responsible for what you allow on your platform, Yelp.
To any new users, please consider an alternative app for the reasons mentioned above.
Quickest uninstall of my life. So long, farewell, and good bye forever.
Dr. Sarah has taken care of my fur-baby, Maggie, since she had her first shots at six weeks old... she’ll be 15 in January, & she’s still lively as a pup & doing great. My brother & my mom have also relied on her for their doggies, & she’s never failed us. She’s compassionate, & sweet to our critters. She’s given us her cell phone number for questions that might arise, & she’s always answered if we needed to call. And she’s brilliant. She’s smart as a whip, & she’s diagnosed some pretty obscure problems that I doubt most vets would even have in their vocabulary. I love this lady, & I’m grateful for her!!!
I intentionally stayed in my ‘stall’ to try on clothes, just opening the curtain enough to see myself in the mirrors they have just outside the rooms (there are no mirrors in the individual rooms) I was seriously bombarded with “mask on at all times!”. No one else was changing, I was isolated in my ‘stall’ and they still really went for it. Even watching me afterwards to ensure I heard them. It was so intense, and made me feel so uncomfortable I didn’t even want to spend my money there... humanity is lost, and this is the perfect place to experience it.
