To add a scale of likeness for a restaurant
To be able to add a degree of likeness. I do not love all the restaurants I bookmark I merely like some and don't want them to be in the same category as the others.
Thank you to everyone for weighing in on this suggestion!
After much consideration, we think it best to avoid yet another service that has its own star ratings, opting instead to rely on existing systems for this. In version 3, we have now integrated Yelp ratings for many restaurants.
Additionally, we realized that “want to try” and “love” is a false dichotomy, and have therefore added a 3rd option of simply “tried”. We hope this will provide the desired granularity and solve the primary pain point behind this suggestion.
I do also wish that this was another feature to add in down the road for people to use IF they want. I think the simplicity that you're going for is great, but I'd love for the "tried it" or "loved it" to pop up with an additional quick option to put a score of 1-10. Maybe this is something that could be turned off or on within settings.
My husband and I go to so many places and are truly looking for a comprehensive tracker...it'd be nice to be able to get a top list of those favorites!
I guess I would dissent from this. I think the ratings are unnecessary, because so many other factors are going to be considered when deciding where to eat, like what neighborhood it's in and whether or not you can get a reservation. I actually like NOT rating things for once, because it makes the process of adding restaurants quick and easy. And for crying out loud, if you don't love a restaurant, don't put it in your list!
It forces you to make *that* decision.
Please allow us to star or give different ratings to the places. Not all of them are equally loved!

Yes, add a +1 button, kind if like the Voting system in forums
I totally agree with this suggestion. It just makes perfect sense. Sometimes I'm not really thrilled with a particular place but I may want to go back there for some reason or other... then I'll still take their matchbook.
I love this app but I wholeheartedly agree with these posts. This is my only complaint with the app. There should be an option to rate your own bookmarks. At the very least there should be some sort of other option aside from "love" and "want to try".
Great idea. We don't like all places equally. Allows us to separate the wheat from the chaff. An option to dislike a place is also good.
In addition to a 1-5 star rating I'd like to be able to mark certain places as favorites.
Maybe as a third option in addition to the two existing ones 'want to go' and 'I went'?
My favorite places change and even if I rated a place with five stars it might not be one of my favorites at the moment.
