I’ve sort of being avoiding this for awhile, but it seems inevitable and perhaps its time to provide a scoring system for restaurant reviews. It’s very convenient and a suitable benchmark to compare against, but sometimes the totality of the dining experience doesn’t quite compare in an apples to apples manner. I mean, a full blown dining experience at Fäviken in a rustic farmhouse right in the middle of nowhere in Sweden with an adorable little Tipi for after dinner drinks doesn’t quite match up to a perfectly enjoyable French fine dining lunch at Les Amis in Singapore. This will be a subjective assessment and it won’t be perfect, but rather my thoughts on the matter and very personal to me.
So here we go:
Scores Ranking Meaning
90 – 100 Magnificent Flawless dining experience and meal progression
80 – 89 Excellent Innovative, technically precise, delicious cuisine
70 – 79 Very Good Generally good food and cooking
60 – 69 Decent Adequate meal, nothing to shout about
59 – 0 Nope
