Review from A Google User
Missing features So much is missing. No favourites, no wish list, no restaurant reservation to calendar. Please bring these back.
Terrible app. freezes. no options to search Stops working. not showing data. Unbelievable that google can make such a bad app. Original zagat app before google time was fine. this one is garbage.
Strangely useful Despite the app only being useful in major cities, and the unintuitive interface (it's not possible to directly search for restaurants), I'm giving it 4 stars for being useful for having an interface that enables discovering the best restaurants. Its only navigational method, the "best of" lists, are great for learning about new places whether I'm interested in price, location, or a certain cuisine. In that aspect, it's easier than yelp; it does one job, and does it well.
Again... used to love it Since the latest update it freezes before it even opens... both of the restaurant apps I used to love now do this - open table and zagat. It's depressing and annoying especially as I've come to rely on them so much when travelling.
Worthless! Shame on you, Google! I'm a Google fan, but this time they really screwed up. I very excitedly downloaded this app while salivating in anticipation of the great places I'd find. After the long & clumsy search entry it took ages to get an EMPTY map & list. I'm in NJ & chose 5 neighborhood's and 13 (!) cuisines & got NOTHING. How is that possible when you're doing a search of Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, etc., all of which have rated restaurants? GIANT FAIL GOOGLE. Uninstallation will now commence... at least there's Yelp.
Pretty useless Trying this app was a waste of time. The app itself is adequate but there is little content to search from.
Getting better A lot of improvement since the great f*** up. I'm glad there's more focus on the map and less on the objective, useless, and overly specific articles outlining the "10 best restaurants for late night mild to moderately spicy Indian food"
