Fun & Original
This game was fun and original.
Great graphics, very playable with good replay. Does require thought and strategy but at a relaxing pace. A new take on a food service game.
You get to hire staff and train them, you get to purchase equipment and upgrade it. You have a choice of dishes to learn and get to layout and decorate each restaurant.
Really enjoyed it!

Fun and Different Game
I absolutely love time management games and especially loving being able to find one that is original. Your goal in this game is to open and build restaurants up.
The game is easy to learn and each restaurant offers different challenges to accomplish. I have found myself playing this game over and over again for hours at at time.
If you are looking for something different and fun, this is definitely the game for you!

What a fantastic restaurant simulation game. Very challenging and realistic. Different types of ethnic restaurants are available. One of my favorite games. Combines business management and cooking. Amazing programming.

Could be better, but still one of the best games in this site
First I thought this is boring game, but it turned to be one of the best internet games I've ever played. I wish there will be Bistro Boulevard 2 with approvements.

Not your typical tm/strategy game
Instead of trying to get customers served, you are in charge of giving the customer the best possible service. You pick the recipes, kitchen equiptment, the chef training, the wait staff traing and decor with the goal of turning a delapidated food court into a five star dining district. Fantastic way to waste a rainy day!

Can't find another game like it
This game is so awesome I've been trying to find something like it. I can't. I want a sequel!!!!!!
I actually learned about food and it wasn't too easy. I liked the healthy balance between target goals and open creative options. Such a fun game.....I've played it twice already.

A really fun game
I bought this at first, thinking it's similar to diner dash or one of those restaurant click-fest games. But it's more of a strategy game and the changes you make are small and slow, making the game runs a little longer than expected. There's just 5 levels, but the length of each level varies, depending on how you plan the restaurant. overall, i greatly enjoy the game. i've played a lot of restaurant development kind of game, but this is the first game where i feel like i actually worked hard for it and genuinely happy to see my restaurants doing well. Also, i enjoy games with high potential for replaying, this is one of those games, there's a lot of things you can change.

You get to sweat bullets.
I love this type of game. Similar to TM, but with no time pressure. Yes, there is a timed section, where you have to seat people when they show up, but the problem is not your speed, but whether there is a table.
You can buy tables, of course, but you need money, and not only that, tehre is no point in seating them if they are going to walk out before eating.
The beginnings are always hairy. You only have one cook, who knows only one recipe, and not too well. One waiter, who is not the best, slow cooking equipment,and sometimes some equipment is missing. You have to earn the money to rectify all this, to let your cook learn new recipes, to train him or the waiters so get new cooks, to get faster kitchen equipment, to get more tables.
Well, no matter how you spend your money,the first days will be disastrous, you will lose more customers than you keep, half of what the customers want you do not have, the cooking is slow, the customers are impatient and more than wllling to walk out. You can hire more cooks, but they still have slow equipment, and the more people you hre, the more salaries you have to pay. You have to strategize then, Do you seat large parties, which birng you more money, or small ones that get served faster, and thus do not walk out? when seating, pick the people at the back of thequeue, because they are not getting impatinet yet. Sitting someone already losing patience might meant their walking out angrily.
At some time you might run out of money. This is when your kidnly aunt gives you $500.00 to keep on going. Spend it wisely.
Then you finally learn the final recipe. You can give custmers what they want, and you can use the money to improve the speed, by hiring more cooks, or getting faster equipment. Still, you will lose customers Start planning for decoration, and for training your staff. If you add tables, add waiters too.
And before you know it, after sveral disappointing days, you start acheiving stars.
Decorating is a lot of fun. There are some things that you need to get, and be careful with floor decorations (and tables). You may put them in the way, and wll have to be moved so that people can go through. I confess that I made a mess out of the decoration. I gave a chinese restaurant a Mexican floor, for example. But still, it is very pretty (this develper has good aesthetic sense).
And then you get to have a Perfect Day, wehre everything works just fine...
It is a great game, with a lot of fun.
