A note on battery –
We've spent years developing the location technology that powers Foursquare City Guide, making it extremely power efficient. But, as with all apps of this type, please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
If you love eating out but are tired of ending up at the same places, Foursquare is your best bet for curing your epicurean doldrums. Discover hidden gems around you by browsing lists created by local experts or by searching for a specific cuisine. Foursquare has a vibrant community of international users, making it an ideal choice if you find yourself travelling to unfamiliar cities abroad.
Reliable info but UI needs work
I’ve been using 4sq for years and still find the ratings and tips to have higher value than other similar sites or apps (you know which ones) where 5⭐️ reviews (many obviously fake) are too readily handed out. 4sq ratings are much more accurate and I find I can rely on them, especially when I travel.
However, the UI has not evolved in a long time and can be difficult to navigate. There is no easy way to find one’s own tips for a location, find places nearby where one has been before, etc. The edit page (especially hours) is clunky to use. There is no link to restaurants’ reservations link on OpenTable or Resy.
Finally, there are superusers and I have been at level 1 for years now, even though I submit frequent tips (over 500 so far), photos (over 500), and edits (hundreds), and now have 15 separate “expertises”. Still, no indication that I might move up the superuser ladder, which is not a big deal but is still frustrating, when I used to see other users, which much lower activity than mine, who were higher level superusers.
Don’t Bother / Update
I was surprised to hear from the app developer who managed to get back about half my information which made things a little better so I upped my rating from 1 star to 3. I am still missing my reviews. I recently took the time to review Shawarma and Gyro Express. There was zero information on this recently opened restaurant. I took photos of the menu, the restaurant and left an excellent review because I love this place, but it’s not in my liked places. The incomplete menus are still an issue. I’m missing all my out of town stuff from Boston to Virginia Beach. If I take the time to review and add photos, id like to be able to access those, so still disappointed. I also noticed that the reviews are characters limited with no warnings. You can’t give a good review and include all the good stuff in a few sentences. I loved URBAN SPOON and wish it were modeled more after that.
Very disappointed. This app recently had an overhaul and in the process, I not only lost all my saved (to try) places but also my favorites. I have left a few reviews on the new app to help populate it but I can’t even access that either. Now when I look for something all I get are incomplete restaurant profiles with no menus. It’s been months since the update and most restaurants are asking us to update photos, menu etc. Surely in this day and age, the transition to the new format should have seamlessly integrated the old data.
