Outdated, Not Recommended
Complex, challenging and rewarding. Note that you have to play through all the tutorials to learn everything, so ignore complaints like rude servers until it is covered. This must have been a great game when it was released, but now it is so outdated that I cannot recommend it. The graphics are bad, the controls are annoying, and the mini-games are not fun at all. Hopefully Restaurant Empire 2 will be available here soon - I know I will play it!

Waste of Money/Credit
I really wish they had a trial for this game because I would not have wasted my money. The game does not run smooth and is awkward to play. There is no direction to what you should do and the tutorial is useless.

I own over 250 Big Fish games and have tried over a thousand, and this has got to be THE WORST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED!!! The tutorial feels more like one of those required educational videos professors make you watch... Long and boring! yawn!! The controls are confusing and have a 1995 Windows feeling to it. It desperately needs to be upgraded, which is surprising since the game was created in 2007. The excitement level - I rate a 0! If the game was more challenging than nonsensical then it might have wiggled it's way to a 2 star review, but it's complete nonsense. And something I have NEVER SEEN IN A GAME EVER is this games deliberate exclusion of female players. The game has all 32 chefs male (but 1#, and almost all other higher level characters #paid, experience, etc.) are male as well. The female characters - waitress and receptionists. Pathetic!

Waste of money
Do not buy this game unless you use a keyboard and mouse. It just can not be played with a laptop!!!!!!

Big Regret On This Purchase
The game description sounded great. But, no free trial. I bought it anyway... big mistake. My big complaint is the 360 navigation, runs choppy, it's awkward to navigate. I spent most of my time trying to get the view I needed to even see what I was doing. Because of the navigation problem, it was way to time consuming to even get familiar with this game. Everything takes waaaaay to long. I will never buy a game again unless it has a free trial. According to the description my computer fit the minimum requirements. I think this game has some serious flaws. I didn't like the graphics either.

One slow, overly clicking game!
Too many turns, how to turn, clicking, one feels like then in school all over again. A truly painfully hard to handle when your using the mouse. Boring to the end. Its a challenge if ones wants a headache. I wasted my money on this one. Blah!
