"The CD-ROM isn't truly comprehensive, but it would be
unfair to knock the disc on that basis. To present menus, photographs, recipes,
and other details for every decent restaurant in the country is more a task for
an Internet server than a single CD-ROM."
"You can search a region for your desired type, price, and
style of dining experience. You get a good idea of the menu and the atmosphere
for each location. Note that most of the restaurants are fairly upscale (the
disc will usually cost less than the meal), which may limit its usefulness to
the budget-conscious. So while this isn't the way to discover back-alley
culinary treasures, you can use this title to help you find a decent place in
an unfamiliar town."
