Zagat Survey :: Restaurants, Nightlife, Hotels & Attractions :: Ratings & Reviews
Tim and Nina Zagat established Zagat Survey® in 1979 by inviting avid diners to rate and review the restaurants they visited. Both native New Yorkers, these two successful Yale educated lawyers applied a unique premise that rating a restaurant on the basis of thousands of experiences was inherently more accurate than relying on one reviewer. Starting with the first Zagat NYC Restaurant Survey, that premise has proven true and Zagat Survey has continued to expand over the last 26 years. The company now offers guides to dining for more than 70 major markets, as well as guides for hotels, resorts and spas worldwide, family travel, entertaining, shopping, nightlife, movies, music, theater and golf.
Zagat Survey's unique approach separately rates the distinct qualities of a restaurant (Food, Decor, Service and Cost), hotel (Rooms, Service, Dining and Public Facilities) and other leisure categories based on a 30-point scale. Zagat Survey's format allows people to search for and find the best places to meet their individual needs based on a variety of criteria. That breadth and depth of information has made Zagat Survey a name that consumers can trust — even if they aren't sure how to pronounce it.
Besides becoming the world's best-selling publisher of restaurant guides, Zagat Survey has developed business relationships with over 3,000 companies, including AOL, Chase, Citigroup, MasterCard International, Merck, Merrill Lynch, MGM, Minute Maid, Microsoft, News Corp., Sony, Toyota and Verizon. In addition, Zagat Survey has won universal media applause from respected industry experts. Newhouse Syndicate calls Zagat Survey "the most up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable guides ever published," while The New York Times says it is "a necessity second only to a valid credit card."
