Frequently Asked Questions

General

Who creates the content in the World of Mouth?

The content is created by the World of Mouth experts and other World of Mouth app users. The content is continuously growing and curated.

What’s the difference between a recommendation and a review?

A review evaluates both negative and positive aspects of a dining experience. While we totally understand that no place is always perfect and many users want to give feedback on every part of their experience, we don’t want to hear about rude waiters or overcooked steaks. World of Mouth focuses on highlighting great places, not complaining about bad ones. Whether it’s a white tablecloth joint or a hot dog cart, if you wouldn’t genuinely recommend it to a friend, we don’t need the play by play.

What's the problem with current guides?

The noise of innumerable online reviews and the manipulation of paid sponsorships make it hard to find trustworthy guides on where to dine. World of Mouth removes the effort of sifting through ratings by providing recommendations from the world’s most trusted experts.

How do I add a recommendation?

To add a new restaurant recommendation, click on the “Add recommendation” button at the top right-hand corner in the feed. Enter the name of the restaurant and select from the drop-down menu. You are now ready to write your recommendation.

I can't find a restaurant I want to recommend from the Search. What to do?

Try to add the location (city) in the search after the name of the restaurant. If the restaurant still doesn't appear, it is because the restaurant search is provided by a third operator and is limited to businesses registered on Google. We are working on this in order to get all the hidden spots on the World of Mouth map too.

How do I reset my password?
