I love this book (and its predecessors) but I never find it quite satisfactory.

First off, the good, and it's very good:

- They only include restaurants worth going to, rather than lots of dross to fill pages

- All reviews are consistent with each other. This is huge for me. For example, restaurant reviews on eg Yelp are not much use as someone is as likely to give a good review to McDonalds as it's a particularly clean branch, as they are to a restaurant which serves food actually prepared in the kitchen. Or, a restaurant will get a bad review, not because of the food, but because the reviewer would never spend that much on food, regardless of quality. Here, everything is rated in the context of clear guidelines and it's all internally consistent.

- Michelin is famous for not taking bribes (or "influence") for inclusion, which cannot be said for so many other guides.

But there are two significant shortcomings:

First, it doesn't extend down to Monterey Bay.

Second, I find the entries to be too long. It would suit me better if they cut them down considerably and included a category of restaurants one notch down the quality scale.

I have been with a 5-6 year old SF guide. Now updating.....No losers find their way into Michelin SF but not everything that does is so so so great. Michelin has a great (and deserving) reputation worldwide but their SF guide is not quite on par as the ultimate restaurant guide. But still I thought it worthwhile to update. Have not had time to test the update.

Purchased this for the wine-country coverage. I've used Red Guides for European countries
for years, so was surprised by the format in SF. Just a few listings for lodging in Napa &
Sonoma--really too few to be useful, and almost all high-end. The restaurant section was
better and write-ups were helpful. Not at all helpful if you're looking for mid to upper-mid range
lodgings--could have included a lot more if they used the European format.

Generally, I've found the Michelin Guide to be of tremendous help when culling which new restaurant I wish to try. I am surprised at about five of the East Bay/ Contra Costa Entries which I found lacking enough to have not received mention in the guide. There are also other places , such as Phnom Penh, for instance, which have received such monumental praise online, and yet no mention. Certainly the ever outstanding Chez Panisse is as worthy of a star as some of the other venues which received a single star or two. I was delighted to find Zout of Berkeley in the listings. Eating there is always a delight, and I feel Mandalay of deserves a star. - J.N. Foodie
