Reviews:

Multimedia World, December 1994

"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."
