I started using Foodie in SF after first moving. It’s basically replaced Yelp for me. I often find places on Infatuation and then pick dishes through Foodie. It was hard to go back to general restaurant reviews after getting meal-specific reviews.

Pros:

- Much more detailed than yelp for food - Has food guides from different websites - App gets updated frequently

Cons:

Can’t think of any. I’m excited for other cities to be added (NYC!) Would be useful when traveling.

The app is great and useful. Have tried choosing dishes 4-5 times now and never been disappointed.

Pros:

Saves me time in choosing the right dish at a restaurant

Cons:

I am sure UX improvements are on the way, like auto suggestions etc

I think this is exactly an app that allows those who truly only care about the food quality and experience more than anything else to really filter out everything else. Focusing more on what I want, and the best place to go for that. It’s been helpful in seeing what to avoid, and even convinces me to give restaurants who I didn’t like too much another chance. Helpful to both the restaurant and the customer!

Pros:

I’m always on the hunt for brand new food to explore, and this app does just that!

Cons:

Can’t think of anything yet so far!

I've been using foodie for the past few months, and it has helped me decide what to eat at restaurants. I can't wait for them to launch in New York.

Pros:

This app is incredibly useful in helping me figure out where to eat.

Cons:

N/A, there really isn't anything like this app on the market.

"Harrison Giovannelli has used this product for one year." That's an OG user right there! Favorite feature we've launched since you first downloaded?

This app is exactly what I need! When I use Yelp to look for specific dishes that other people like at restaurants, I end up scrolling for hours to find what I am looking for. But with Foodie, I can get recommendations from reliable people within seconds! It has really improved my dining experience and I can't wait for people to keep adding their reviews to the app.

Pros:

- easy to use - updated frequently - has photos for specific dishes

Cons:

None so far!

Foodie is a great idea and I'm glad it exists.

Pros:

The app makes it easy to figure out what to order at restaurants!

Cons:

There could still be more reviews and content and more photos! It improves everyday though!

It is fun too!

Pros:

I really like the way this App helps me make good choices at a restaurant. Not only you have a good list with ratings but also pictures.

Cons:

I would like to see a better way to keep track of my eating history and when I re-visit restaurants.

They’re clearly iterating quickly.

Pros:

Great recommendations and really intuitive UI. I’ve been using this every time I go out.

Cons:

More cities, NYC please!

The Feed feature is particularly awesome- I can see where my friends are eating and what they recommend! It's truly unique to be able to see what food my friends are trying and raving about as they explore the city.

Pros:

-Discover new, traditional, orforgotten restaurants that prepare the best food! -Save crave-worthy menu options in your own collections

Cons:

My social circle within the app is currently limited- would be great to have a suggested friends feature!
