 Reviews

11% of restaurateurs using UpMenu decided to publish the opinions of their customers. Reviews of other users are one of the most reliable sources of information about a given brand. It is worth considering enabling this option, because it makes your restaurant more transparent and authentic for guests. In order for customer feedback to have a positive impact on your sales, it must first and foremost be visible, diverse and true on the website. If you remove unfavorable comments or they look unrealistic, you can get counterproductive – a customer unconvinced about their authenticity may become alienated from the brand.
