Edible Dialect is an aggregate restaurant review site based in New York. Reviews are sourced from various websites and publications. These reviews are then tabulated with our own score to provide clear granular view of an establishments offerings.

How It Works

Scores based on five star reviews are converted to their 100 based equivelant. Due to the nature of such scores, we provide a curve, adding 10 points to the overall score. Sources include:

google reviews
Menu pages

Scores sourced from sites such as Foursquare, scores based out of ten, will not have a curve, as they’re more in line with our scoring.

Sources such as The New York Times and Zagat reviews will have a minimum of 20 point curve. These are weighted differently as the reviews are based on more than just the food.

Once all of these scores are tabulated, we then average them with our own score to get the edible score you see next to the review.
