Who Selects the Restaurants?
The research team at Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants has determined those restaurants whom are in the top 5 percent of the region’s highest rated Restaurants.
How Do We Decide Which Restaurants are Selected?
Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants researches and visits with the majority of restaurants. Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants selects restaurants based on the popularity that they have in their community. Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants also relies on popular reviews by customers on review websites such as Urbanspoon, Zagat, Yelp, Open Table and other leading independent restaurant rating companies.
Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants also sends out nomination forms to restaurants. The idea is that restaurants are best qualified to judge other restaurants, and if one recommendation is good, multiple recommendations are better. Restaurants are asked not to nominate themselves; nominations are kept confidential. Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants asks the nominators to take into account food, atmosphere and service.
Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants then tabulates the results and examines the nominee pool.
Are the Results Adjusted at All?
The results are adjusted for geographic balance. Because both the television segment and the promotion are designed to help customers find Restaurants in their area; Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants includes at least some of the highest rated Restaurants from each relevant geographic area. This makes nominees useful to the greatest possible number of residents based on television viewer areas. Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants strives for balance across restaurant categories. All the Restaurants, regardless of location or category, are included because they came highly recommended by their customers and that all were screened by Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants.
Is There a Fee to Participate in the Filming of the Good Day LA Commercial Segment?
There is no cost to be filmed. Select nominees can participate in the filming of our television commercial segment airing on FOX 11 KTTV during the Good Day LA Show called “Introducing the 2014 Los Angeles Top Rated Restaurants”. The concept of the television segment is to introduce the most highly recommended restaurants, which will make it easier for residents to discover the best places to eat!
Does FOX also Research and Interview the Restaurants?
