How to Write a Food Dish Review

Photo courtesy of Jackson017


A food reviewer is responsible for creating a clear and accurate description of a food dish prepared and consumed in a restaurant. The review should include discussion of the overall appearance of the dish, and an indication of how the food smells, as well as a description of the texture and taste of the food. The food review will help others decide whether or not to visit the restaurant and give that particular dish a try. It shouldn't take you long to compose a review if you took plenty of mental notes during the meal.

Follow the steps below to write your food review:

Step 1:

Order the restaurant's signature dish, or one of the night's specials. Anyone could review your everyday chicken over rice. Readers want to hear about something unique.

Step 2:

Observe the dish as it arrives. Does it look like someone just threw the food on the plate, or are there garnishments that catch your eye and make you want to dive in. Now's the time, also, to take note of such matters as portion size.

Step 3:

Inhale deeply in to get a good whiff of the food before you begin eating it. Is the aroma one that makes you excited about trying the dish, or does it repulse you and make you want to push the plate away? The smell may also just be average, or what you would expect the dish to smell like.

Step 4:

Chew each bite for several seconds and get a good feeling for the texture and taste. You will want to discover if the meat is too dry, or tastes like the chef over used the seasoning. The temperature of the food is also important. Sauteed cabbage won't be as pleasing to the palate if it is served luke-warm.

Step 5:

Pay attention to your surroundings. You may also want to fill your readers in on the restaurant itself. Note if the restaurant gives off a romantic feel, whether the staff was knowledgeable about the food dishes, how long it took for the food to be served and how complaints (if any) were addressed.

Step 6:

Include all of the information you gathered in your review. Share your thoughts and opinions in the review as if you were telling a friend about the food dish, but be careful not to give a bad review unless it is completely warranted.

Tips: Resist the urge to write a negative review because you don't like a particular food. For example, don't write that a stuffed mushroom dish was horrible if the only reason it seemed horrible to you is because you hate the taste of mushrooms. The dish may actually be delicious to those who enjoy mushrooms.

Warnings: Never bring a notebook and pencil in to the restaurant with you, or the staff will know you are a food critic. Instead, you can keep the notebook in your car and jot down a few quick notes before heading to your next destination.
