How To Write An Online Organic Restaurant Review

If you’re writing reviews of organic food restaurants, there are a few things that you should do in order to help your review stand out and, more importantly, actually assist people. A reviewer that only touches the surface level or doesn’t do their research is not going to write a helpful review. At Organic Restaurants we’ve seen plenty of online reviews, so we know a thing or two about how to write a decent one. Here’s what you should keep in mind.

Do Background Research

Do some background research on the organic restaurant and incorporate what you learned into your review. Where do the ingredients come from? Are some of these dishes old family recipes? Who founded the restaurant and what do they want diners to get out of the experience?

Answering questions like these can help contextualize your experience. They can also tell readers more about the restaurant itself and help them decide if this is the kind of eatery they would like to visit.

Have a Narrative

Don’t just jump all over the place, from food to d├ęcor to the servers. Have a narrative. Describe what you see when you come in. Who greets you? How long did it take to get seated? What was the experience like once you sat down at the table?

Tell people a story and allow them to engage with the experience that you had, from start to finish. This makes it easier for a reader to picture themselves going to the restaurant and experiencing the food and service, for better or worse, for themselves.

Just Be a Customer

If you want to review the typical dining experience you need to be the typical diner. That means that you shouldn’t tell the restaurant that you’re a reviewer. It could affect how you are treated and render your review less useful for actual diners who come in to visit the restaurant.

Give Readers Information About the Restaurant

Don’t just talk about the experience you had. Give readers important information about the restaurant as well, like the hours, price range, and type of food that they serve. Do you need to make a reservation? Do they frequently have events or live entertainment? This kind of info is invaluable to diners who are deciding on which organic restaurant to go to next.

Add Photos

Photos can attract more attention to your review and help readers know a bit more about what to expect. If your food looks good, take some pictures and make them a key part of your restaurant review.

Proofread and Edit

No one is going to trust your restaurant review if it’s unreadable or full of spelling errors. Take the time to proofread your review. Fix any errors you made. Clean up the language and make it flow a bit better so that people want to keep on reading. Taking that extra time to proofread can make an enormous difference.
