Every review offers specialized insight into the food, atmosphere, and service of eateries.

As always, the ratings range from stars to bells to beans, but every review offers specialized insight into the food, atmosphere, and service of eateries in each city’s dining scene and the critics eating at them.

In Boston, The Tip Tap Room takes its name seriously, or literally, for that matter, but according to critic Devra First, "its secret, unbilled strength is game." 

San Francisco's Mission Rock Resort has picturesque views, but service can be questionable. However, for an "afternoon or evening surrounded by the bay, it's a frustration well worth enduring."

The nation's capital now plays host to new hipster diner, The Satellite Room, where "boozy milkshakes have been a top draw." Late night options are a plus and variety "tugs at the heartstrings" of many diners. 

From the East Coast to the West Coast, from North to South, the weekly restaurant critic roundup is here for all of your dining out needs.
