Bookmark prospective restaurants, and save visited restaurants along with notes.

View bookmarked restaurants as pins on a map or listed in a scrolling table. Both pins and the list entries are color-coded:

Blue - restaurants to try
Green - restaurants to repeat
Red - restaurants to avoid

Filter restaurants by color.

Type in search terms or restaurant names to search for restaurants to add to your bookmarks. Search for restaurants near your current location, according to the current map area, or type in a location of your choice.

Add journal entries to each restaurant. For example, notes for what dishes to try at prospective restaurants, or dishes to eat again or avoid on repeat visits.

Tap the Yelp icon anywhere in the app to open the restaurant listing in Yelp.

Yelp's terms of use require that restaurant information be updated daily.

Ok for keeping a list. Needs more features

It’s great that it has a link to Yelp so you can add restaurants easily. However, you can’t filter by cuisine or location-only by “Try”, “Repeat” and “Avoid”.

If you have a long list its tedious to sort through.

Thanks for your support! I plan to add different filters in a future version.

Good app, almost great app

I usually don’t leave reviews, but there’s nowhere else I could find to give feedback, so here I am. This is a really easy to use app, great to track restaurants I’ve been to and add notes quickly. I like that I can add places I want to try without having to put in an entry. The link to yelp is also super helpful.

That said, there are two functions that are missing that I would’ve expected of any food tracking app.
1. The ability to add pictures in the entries (as well as starting a new line within an entry).
2. The ability to put a 0-5 stars personal rating for each entry that averages for the restaurant (in addition to the yelp ratings, and instead of just repeat and avoid for a place that I’ve tried).
3. Bonus function that would also be helpful- the ability to add tags to restaurants to make search easier.

Hopefully the developer sees this, this app is really useful and it would make things that much better if those things (and a feedback button?) were implemented! Thanks!

Thanks for your support! I have updated the app to allow new lines within entries. I plan to add pictures to entries and enhance filtering in future versions. I'm still on the fence regarding a 0-5 star personal rating system, but thank you for the suggestion. I might end up adding that to a future version, too, but no concrete plans yet. Also, I plan to add a feedback link to a future version. Thanks for your suggestions!

Almost perfect!

I LOVE this app. I love that it’s linked to Yelp and I can easily put in notes for why I should try a place or what I got that I should go again. I’ve become my friend’s go to person for recommendations. PLeASE add a feature that makes it so I can see a list of the places I pinned in a specific region. For example, if I want to see what I’ve pinned in NYC, I have to individually click on each pin on the map- it’s tedious, would be so much better if the list showed just the pins on the region of the map I’m looking at.

Thanks for your support! I have updated the app to include the feature you requested.
