(Old) Review Index

This is an index to all of the restaurant reviews that I’ve published on this blog. Most of these reviews are based on a single visit. Where I wrote multiple reviews, the latest one is linked, and the rating reflects all of my visits to that restaurant.

A low number of stars does not mean that I disliked the restuarant: the meaning of one star is “good.” A star rating is no substitute for reading the review, where I can describe in much more detail what I liked and disliked.

I have noted in brackets if there has been a significant change at the restaurant since I last dined there, or if such a change has been announced. Restaurants that are no longer open are listed at the end, as are restaurants that I wrote about without assigning a rating.
