Fun at first, but repetitive.
I enjoy management games, and this one starts off well. You get to set up a bistro, hire staff, buy equipment.
The problem is, it gets very repetitive, each new restaurant is the same thing over again. There is no progression in the difficulty level or in the tasks, the goal is always the same.
It's fun but has no replay factor. I played 80% and never finished. Worth getting at discount price only.

This is a fun game, it just doesn't last long enough. You can complete it in a day.

Needs Some Re-Designing
Really expected this to be great. I was disappointed.
A different theme. Managing the resturaunt seems good.
Pretty good graphics.
The levels were going on towoards a bit too hard and it's a very stressful game.
Absolutely NO cooking involved. Would've been better if you could manage the resturaunt and cook food like Hot Dish, and still had the waiters to take it out, so, unlike hot dish, the food didn't sit around and lose quality untill everything was ready,
The game seriously LACKED fun. It was a real bore and a rare miss for the developers.
Storyline was poor and has been done countless times. It's time for something new!
Despite all the hype, this turned out to be a real disappointment. I'd go for something like Cooking Academy.

I bought this game, but I'm upset i did.
The audio is dreadful and repetitive, I was so sick of it after playing for a few hours I muted the game and put on my headset.
The graphics are an okay to bad on my scale.
What makes this game fun is figuring out what everyone wants on any particular level, and making sure you have the recipes, staff, tables, and other variables to help eventually achieve a 5 star rating.
This is a really long game, it can take you more than an hour just to get one star in your first restaurant!
There's also AFAIK no leader score/awards score or who did the best score for people playing, which IMHO makes this time management a waste of time (pun intended). I wish I would have not purchased this game.

just not up to par
Allows you to design a great looking restaurant. Variety of tools offered, gives endless possibilities. Too bad, you can't get into the actual serving and time management part of it. Almost feels as if you are just an on-looker, making game play not as exciting as it could be.

I did not like the idea of not preparing the food myself. When time was up the waiter moved very quickly just to finish up. Very bad game.

Dull and Slow Paced
Graphics were very poor and the pace was extremely slow. Plus the storyline didn't make much sense. I don't recommend this game.
